KC’s Music Monday: Astro Nautico

Astro-Nautico-Atlantics-Vol.-3-cover

For your work soundtrack this week, I suggest downloading this year’s compilation from the Astro Nautico crew. Released on 4/20, the label put together their third volume of their Atlantics series, which is available for free download.

The third compilation features a generous handful of producers and the tunes span genres that end up all flowing together like that of a mix tape. The compilation aims to help introduce you to new talent, a goal which I think they accomplish with nonchalant and taste-making ease in representing underground sounds and their creators. Cop it and ease into Monday!

OUTPOST1: Interview with Obey City

Brooklyn-based producer Obey City will be joining Tall Ass Matt and residents Party With Tina, Knomad and Looney this Friday for the April edition of OUTPOST1.

Quick tip: be sure to join in on our RSVP-only happy hour drink specials from 10 to 11pm Friday; just send a quick e-mail with your name to RSVP@keepalbanyboring.com to get in on the fun.

This month’s guest, Obey (pronunciation oh-bee) is definitely not a one-trick pony behind the decks and also keeps busy creating tunes, collaborating with others and maintaining Astro Nautico – the digitally-based label he founded alongside Kuhn and Paul Jones.

For his personal contributions to the world of forward-thinking bass music, he creates tracks that are soulful, emotional and mix the likes of R&B, funky, house and grime into his signature blend of club smashing tunes.

You can check out his music on SoundCloud and also scope his debut Melted Magic EP via Astro Nautico. Additionally, for those of you who missed it, Obey City was featured last night on Noise212, and his set will be added to the impressive archive including the likes of Krueger, Mess Kid, Samo Sound Boy, Sliink, Jim-E Stack and more.

Really looking forward to this month’s party and to help you become familiarized – knomad and myself teamed up to conduct the following interview.

Hit the jump and we’ll see you Friday.
