KC’s Music Monday: Last Day of April Edition

Not sure if the last day of April has any significance to it (or if there’s some kind of made-up Internet holiday for it) but either way, it’s a Music Monday occasion. Enjoy.

First up is a new mix from OUTPOST1 and on the sly resident knomad for Sampled Radio split alongside Brian A. It’s available as a free download so you can bump it at your leisure to get pumped on May’s monthlies where you can catch knomad doing his thing live. Alongside WCDB, we’re co-hosting Jillionaire and Dre Skull alongside our residents and now that it’s almost May, the countdown has begun. Full track-listing for both Brian A and knomad available here.

Check out what else I’m listening to today beneath the cut. Also – I have a handful of local music to rinse through the next couple weeks and if you’d like your music to be added to my ever-growing queue feel free to e-mail me.

KC’s Music Monday: Weekend Recap Edition

This past weekend an ambitious quest presented itself to me in what became a self-curated, Red Bull-fueled tour of three cities to attend three respective events in three days. Thursday brought me to Burlington for friends and Blockhead, Friday brought me back to Williamsburg for TURRBOTAX®, friends and educators Terrence Parker, Doc Daneeka and Octo Octa, and Saturday took me to New Paltz for JunGALA, friends and Dubbel Dutch and Samo Sound Boy. Needless to say, I spent majority of Sunday catching up on sleep and avoiding checking my bank account balance.

Before I get started in recapping my weekend, be sure to check out the latest mix from Party With Tina and dive into your work week properly.

Party With Tina February Mix by party with tina

For this week’s Music Monday, I present you with a random assortment of musical sources of inspiration as to why I brought myself on a bass-driven pilgrimage up North and up and down I-87.

Sorry not sorry for the longest post ever. Happy Monday, hit the jump.

KAB x JunGALA Interview: Samo Sound Boy

This Saturday, it comes recommended to make the pilgrimage from Albany to New Paltz (it really is just a straight shoot down 87 after all) to catch Dubbel Dutch and Samo Sound Boy play out in celebration of the two-year anniversary of JunGALA at Cabaloosa’s.

Simply put, this booking feels like planets aligned, especially considering that it is a two-year celebration (big ups New Paltz!) and also how last year when Samo was billed to play JunGALA, we were hit with a cancelation due to brutality in the form of Hurricane Irene. Thankfully the good folks involved with JunGALA and Broken Teeth Crew worked out bringing him back around and, no less, at a time when his label Body High is really beginning to turn heads.

Recently, Alexander Wang featured a track from the label’s own DJ Funeral during its runway show (!!!) and next week (Feb. 28) DJ Sliink’s Vibrate EP comes out on Body High! Sliink absolutely did the damn thing in the club last week and I’m stoked to catch Samo, (co-founder of the label alongside Jerome of the LOL Boys) just a week later. Also of note, this will be Dubbel Dutch’s second time gracing JunGALA so you can stop kicking yourself if you missed him play out locally last time (like I’ve been).

Samo Sound Boy, of Trouble & Bass, is a Los Angeles based producer and DJ whose powerful live sets and original productions have brought him to the forefront of today’s global club scene. With his second EP released through Palms Out Sounds, another for Trouble and Bass, and forthcoming remixes for the likes of Tim Dolla, Bassanova, and NGUZUNGUZU, Samo is only getting started spreading his club aesthetic that Chicago journalist Dave Quam described as: “Weird, banging, and beautiful. Like a shortwave radio recording of all the best stations at once.”

MYRRYRS, of Body High, B.YRSLF and Discobelle, is an American producer raised on house, techno, and drum and bass. He has set each genre and the barriers they create, aside. Rather than drawing influence from the producers of his musical upbringing, MYRRYRS peers deep within the happenings of the late 90’s rave scene, 80’s B films, sci-fi fantasy, and cult imagery. Get a taste here.
