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.

Greetings party people! It’s nearing that time again and this edition of on the sly and OUTPOST1 are bringing the common denominator of a producer hailing by way of Tennessee, MYRRYRS.

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.

OTS x OP1: Interview with Wheez-ie

Bringing our interview series threefold for this month’s deluxe combo of on the sly X OUTPOST1, comes from Wheez-ie. Hailing from Houston TX, Wheez-ie’s been rippling the bass music pool with two EP releases this year, All Worked Up on Well Rounded Individuals and Keep Yer Chin Up on Embassy Recordings, (scope the write up on XLR8R here).

To quote Andrew, who sums it up nicely: “every track from this dude is fire, and if DaveQ from last month left you with a little bit of a hankering for more juke at OUTPOST1, here you go. Fuck, even Joe Nice told me to book him!”

OP1 x OTS: Interview with Doctor Jeep vol. 2

Doctor Jeep is the first out-of-towner to grace OUTPOST1 twice and for absolute good reason – July’s OP1 was top notch. Back in July, we featured a full blown Q+A and mix. Cue the mix nostalgia here and to re-familiarize everyone, I asked him a couple q’s to catch up with him. In a nutshell, since July, he’s been super busy working on his own productions, playing out with dudes like SBTRKT and being a full-time student at Northeastern. Jeep baby, how do you do it!

His latest tracks, “Monica” and “Whoomp!”, have been rinsed in during KAB radio on WCDB the past couple of weeks and depending on travel time Friday, he’ll be back on the airwaves prior to OP1.

Music Monday: Interview with Archie Pelago

To celebrate and give thanks to our November harvest of a varied and plentiful spread of bass-oriented tastes and textures, OUTPOST1 has teamed up with on the sly to bring you a double portion of Wheez-ie, Doctor Jeep and additional support from respective residents and guests.

Thursday it all pops off, with knomad’s on the sly down in NY at (le) poisson rouge. The full bill for OTS features Wheez-ie, Doctor Jeep, Archie Pelago (live), Obey City and knomad. knomad put together a packed punch mix featuring tracks from past, present and future on the sly x OUTPOST1 artists, as embedded below.

First up in our interviews for the tail end of this week’s events, is Archie Pelago, a live/production outfit based out of Brooklyn. As guests playing at Thursday’s on the sly, I took the opportunity to sit down with these guys and learn more about their collective adventures as Archie Pelago. I first heard them live at TURRBOTAX® this past summer and was excited to learn that these musicians take on their own formula, combining electronic dance music with organic instrumentation, and putting it into the beloved club environment.

Copy pasta from their bio: The Brooklyn-based trio is comprised of Cosmo D (cello/ableton wizard), Kroba (sax/fx) and Hirshi (dj/trumpet). Joining forces in late summer of 2010, Archie Pelago has been committed to producing powerful tunes inspired by contemporary bass music culture.

Scope the latest from their soundcloud above and check out our Q+A beneath the jump.
