Music Monday: Looney Edition

Hi folks. My name is Looney, I make beats and sometimes a little later I play them at parties. I am half of Deep Children. Have you wanted to listen to a Deep Children mixtape? If not, maybe skip reading the rest of this post. But if you have, then today is a happy day for you. Mixtapes from either of us have been long overdue so here’s one I did to make your Monday less shitty. If you click the play button, located below, you may discover: some juke tunes, a li’l dubstep, and maybe a couple original beats. The tracklist is mostly Hype Party Music so please take caution in putting it on around cranky or tired people. Also it has some swears in it.

Andrew’s Music Monday: Whatever

So I listen to all sorts of shit and don’t particularly think I know much about any of it. Here’s some things I’ve got in the last week (thank you iTunes date added sort function) that I particularly enjoy or think people should listen to. Onward,

Here’s a mix done by the lovely folks at Ego Theives. Since I got into dubstep, I found a lot of their stuff always coming up around the internet, for a good reason, they are providing a lot of good content. This mix isn’t earth shattering but is still good and especially for those who are getting into this new fangled dubstep thing, it’s a good, safe, mix.

Tracklist:
Pianorama – Habstrakt
Screw Up – Subscape
Lights On feat. Ms Dynamite (Skream Remix) – Katy B
Just Jokes [EXCLUSIVE] – Roksonix
Star Feat Camila Marie (Doctor P No Rap Remix) – Blame
Spaceship (Trolley Snatcha Remix) – Kano
Champion Sound – Aquadrop
Lonely (Stinkahbell Remix) – Effie
Done Me Wrong feat. Lauren & Shide – Mikey B
Forgive Me – Document One
Bats – Crissy Criss & Youngman
Drop a Gem on Em (The Killabits VIP) [EXCLUSIVE] – Mobb Deep
Out For Blood – Zeds Dead & Omar LinX
Butterflies feat. Borgore [EXCLUSIVE] – Yael
Left The Room (Skream Remix) – P Money
How Long Ft. Dorrie (Filth Collins Remix) [EXCLUSIVE] – Pasteman
Slang Like This Remix feat. P Money, Newham Generals, Blacks – Sukh Knight
Aint Nobody (Breakage Remix) – Clare Maguire
Something In Your Eyes [EXCLUSIVE] – Stinkahbell
World Dominance feat. Farisha [EXCLUSIVE] – Mojo

Onward,

This video, for so many reasons. Looney showed me this when we were searching for hysterical brostep, and I can’t stop watching it. Also, that first song, Typhoon by Foreign Beggars ft Chasing Shadows, rules. Even more so when those English dudes are wylin’ to new levels of hyphy to it.

Onward,

I love Katy B. End of story. Judge accordingly, but know I don’t care.

Onward,

Magnetic Man ft. Katy B playing Perfect Stranger live on BBC Radio 1. This is amazing. String section, Benga/Skream/Artwork make this nutty. American radio is such horse shit. I steal things off UK radio through the internet because it’s so good. Good job America. Also Katy B looks like enough of a chav that she could shred and roll with the real dudes.

Onward,

I like this song because I won a contest on Roska’s twitter and they sent me this vinyl, signed by Jamie George, JKenzo and Roska. I’m so pumped on it, but don’t have anything that can play vinyl (I don’t know if I lose hipster points, or gain them) so I will frame it and listen to it on YouTube.

Scotty’s Music Monday: Bmore Club and Shout out to me

I am Scott Birdsey, born and raised here, and I’m gonna be posting up tracks and mixtapes that will make you pee your pants and otherwise might’ve passed you by. I’m real down with mostly all of the regional club music thats been coming out in the y2k. I DJ and make tracks as Mycon, and do parties and mixtapes with Looney as Deep Children.

I also started a moped gang in Albany called Mohawk Mammoths, so I might end up throwing up some moped porn on here to try and recruit some more kids who want to ride around on toys from the 70s. We sandblast and powdercoat too if you got a bicycle or headgear you want done.

Anyone who’s been to any of our parties has heard me play B-more, cause it was the first real outsider club music I fell in love with. It bounces around in content between raunchy, comical, block party feel good, and Lil’ Jon. 90% of B-more is built around one of two breaks – Sing Sing by Gaz or Think by Lyn Collins. Hollertronix and a few others brought it out of Bmore around 2003, but it had been knocking clubs and radio in the city for more than 10 years before then.

Anyway Dubstep and London in general has kinda killed B-more, at least for the hipster types, but there’s still bangers being made in kid’s basements and it’s still going hard in Philly, Baltimore, and in random cities with DJs like me.

Bottom line is there’s a deep culture around it, like any good regional dance music, and if you’re into it, you can go way down the rabbit-hole going back through its roots. Here is a recent mixtape from DJ Sega, one of the best:

Duncan’s Music Monday: Keep Albany Weighty

While just relaxing with the internet, it become infinitely easier to find cool shit. WIth that said I’m going to highlight a few dubstep tracks that are in my opinion good. These tracks may not be real new in terms of their release, but are new to my ears. *Read this with a cockney accent.

Far East Movement – Like a G6 (Dexcell Dubstep Remix) by Dexcell UK

Recently female leads in dubstep songs have become the object of my affection. Almost no matter what track it is, if there is a female lead I will like it substantially more. This remix by Dexcell does a good job at not over emphasizing the wobble. There are so many hyper electro dubstep songs coming out with female leads that when something like this skips along it should be highlighted. THe song treats the chorus differently allowing the dance floor to switch their footstyle and prep for the drop. Overall its just a solid track. Slow and Low right till the end.

The Glitch Mob-Drive It Like You Stole It-(GladKill Remix) by Gladkill

Glitchy dubstep when well executed is always very well received by my ears. This track has a nice low booming bass line and a fairly clean easy to follow progression of tone. Just a nice relaxed jingle.

Chase & Status – Blind Faith (ft. Liam Bailey) by ALXRSE

This track just speaks for itself. Its just massive and the builds in it are real top notch. Just big and full figured. MASSIVE CHUNE.

Lunice – Fancy Forty (Rustie Remix) by frankyboy

Rustie is what I would consider a power producer. He uses leading synth parts to really drive the track along. What I like the most is the simplicity that his songs have in their construction. It reminds me of 00-04 popular rap tracks but in a more refined way. He hits it out of the park with this catchy remix.
