The Glitch Mob Return with Sophomore LP “Love Death Immortality”, Share First Single + Video + Upcoming National Tour

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , on December 17, 2013 by E.N.

The Glitch Mob Return“If our last album was introverted, then the new one is definitely extroverted, Justin Boreta explains of one of 2014’s most anticipated electronic-music albums: The Glitch Mob’s Love Death Immortality, to be released February 11th on their own Glass Air Records. Boreta represents one-third of The Glitch Mob’s core members, alongside Ed Ma (aka edIT) and Joshua Mayer (aka Ooah).

The album’s featured vocal collaborators, all of whom are female, was a decidedly purposeful choice for The Glitch Mob. “Becoming Harmonious,” flaunts the eerie tones of Bay Area avant-darkwave chanteuseMetal Mother and abum closer “Beauty of the Unhidden Heart,” meanwhile, highlights the dreamy, ethereal voices of Pitchfork favorites Sister Crayon. The most significant collaboration comes from Aja Volkman of L.A./Vegas rockers Nico Vega, who appears on both the alluring dancefloor filler “I Need My Memory Back” and the driving uptempo anthem “Our Demons” (for which she recorded initial vocals on the tour bus while Nico Vega was on the road opening for her husband Dan Reynolds’ band, Imagine Dragons).

R/D – Cloud Pound Muti130

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on December 4, 2012 by E.N.

cloud poundCloud Pound delivers a razors edge of tough beats accompanied by a butterfly’s touch of melody and ethereal soundscapes. These songs uplift the listener as much as they inspire a tantrum of foot stomping.

Entranced, nearly basking in the radiance of R/D’s sound, audiences are swallowed up in his vibrant melodies, pounding beats, and zealous dedication to the craft. Dripping with angst and desire, R/D’s compositions can be at times dizzyingly beautiful, heartbreaking in their melancholy and dancefloor-crushing all at once. With artists clamoring to share bills and secure remixes, his edgy and experimental sound is finding new ears nationwide and beyond, elevating him from L.A. indie auteur to full-fledged underground sensation.

Not content to rework straightforward dance or hip-hop tracks, R/D’s eclecticism lead him to todays most cutting edge artists, resulting in massively successful remixes of Swedish songstress Fever Ray (“I’m Not Done”) and James Blake’s earth-shattering “Wilhelm Scream” both of which landed him high atop Hype Machine’s charts.

R/D has recently been tapped to join tours with The Glitch Mob, Bassnectar, VibeSquaD, and Beats Antique, and 2012 festival appearances include Coachella, Electric Forest, Lightening in a Bottle, and Boonstock. His “Bay Crush” album – released 12/5/11 – debuted at #1 on the Beatport Glitch-Hop chart, and he received a nod from North Face with his music featured as the sweeping soundtrack to an extreme snowboarding video.

“The fineness of Engrenage’s production stands comparison with artists such as Rustie or The Glitch Mob.
This track establishes Turnsteak as part of the few french producers that are able to compete
with their likes from across the channel”.

King Fantastic- “Death Of Summer” EP + Free MP3

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on August 31, 2011 by E.N.

KING FANTASTIC ANNOUNCE THE RELEASE OF THEIR EP “DEATH OF SUMMER” RELEASED TODAY

THE FOLLOW UP TO THE CRITICALLY ACCLAIMED DEBUT LP
“FINGER SNAPS AND GUN CLAPS”
Eclectic and menacing, the group’s big beat vitriol was born in Venice Beach and Playa del Rey in 2010, perhaps a surprise to those used to name checking Compton, Oakland and Long Beach in their hip-hop history discussions. But if the tracks from their 2010 debut, “Finger Snaps and Gun Claps,” or their forthcoming EP, “Death of Summer,” tell us anything, it’s that King Fantastic proudly represents its ZIP Code.”
-The Los Angeles Times
..
“We want to bring Dope back to hip hop” -Troublemaker quoted in Thrasher

King Fantastic is not your ordinary musical duo from LA, but then again nothing is ordinary about their music. We’re living in an era where hip-hop progressively feasts itself upon electronic beats and King Fantastic delves head first into both arenas. Given the diverse upbringings of both producer and internationally known DJ, Troublemaker and Rapper/lyricist Killer Reese One (who is one half of LA underground rap duo Bleu Collar) one would safely say that it’s karma how they united. And the musical climate seems fit to release their new EP “Death of Summer” on August 30th 2011.

Death Of Summer EP Track Listing:

Locals Only
?Cual es mi Nombre, Nina? (Daddy Baby)
Break His Motherfucking Back
Locals Only (Knight Riderz Remix)

Download Locals Only

“Death of Summer” follows the duo’s groundbreaking and critically acclaimed 2010 debut LP “Finger Snaps and Gun Claps “ which spawned the wildly scandalous- “Why? Where? What?” video that is nearing 1 million plays on vimeo

    With that release, the duo achieved global digital underground success in both the electronic and hip hop cultures. While they made news headlines in the likes of The Los Angeles Times, they also found themselves booked on electronic savvy festivals such as Audiotistic and producing remixes from a diverse group of artists including Linkin Park, The Glitch Mob, The Bird and The Bee and Bassnectar.

    King Fantastic’s music is nostalgic for the level of skill, originality and authenticity of the underground LA hip hop culture of the late 90s. The freestyle independence from Emcees and musical styles of that era coupled with today’s progressive bass driven dubstep and Drum and Bass scenes gave birth to “Westcoastsynthesizerbeach bumgangstermusic” a term tagged by King Fantastic.

    On the one hand, Troublemaker’s influences range from hip hop to drum & bass, dubstep and electronic music – and when he first saw Killer Reese One perform at the Roxy he knew he was the man to rap over his beats. In a recent LA Times feature, Killer Reese One takes note “I’m not a bluesey rapper, my beats have to come a lot harder. Troublemaker’s beats are super bass-heavy and gangster without even a word recorded on it.”

    And while Troublemaker was honing his skills as an engineer and producer, Killer Reese One’s former life plays a huge part in his creative process as a rapper. Raised in both Venice Beach and Compton – KRO’s childhood was as diverse as any artist’s palate. His raps are reality and he certainly has an interesting well of experiences to pull from which makes him both a great entertainer and prolific lyricist. Growing up the pair also listened to everyone from Public Enemy, Beastie Boys, NIN, Mo’Wax, Megadeth, Metalheadz, Slayer, NWA ,The Clash and A Tribe called Quest. However they both cite Ice-T and DJ Quik as main players, both who have a heavy dose of synth music in their tracks.

    What to expect to hear on Death of Summer? According to Troublemaker,”When we set out to work on this new project, we did not have any particular direction in mind, although we were both in a dark place as humans. As a result, the music is much darker and harder than anything on our previous album, and Reese’s lyrics are a continuation of that.” He adds, “While our album is minimal in production and has a variety of styles, this EP is super full and is serious bass music.” In a recent interview with Acclaim magazine, What would you like people to come away with after listening to the new EP?: KRO responds “Euphoric fear.”

While numerous outlets such as NPR and The New York Times have lauded The Glitch Mob for their unique live performances, according to The Mob’s Justin Boreta, “Partnering with Lollapalooza to premiere our newest single just seemed like a natural fit. What really triggered the decision is the cool add-ons Lollapalooza’s website implemented for fan interaction.”

Known for its live performances, which fuse electronic and live instrumentation, the group works in elements of hip-hop, breakbeat and electro into their compositions.” NPR

Lollapalooza’s eclectic lineup reflects the varying sensibilities of The Glitch Mob fans, who appreciate everything from hip hop to electro beat, dubstep, innovative rock, indie rock, jam bands, and beyond. Similar Minds: The Glitch Mob will be playing on Perry Farrell’s stage on August 6th.

Other than festivals, this tour sees The Glitch Mob headlining their largest venues to date. The first two headlining club shows – San Francisco’s Regency and San Diego’s Belly Up both sold out advance. In addition, a performance at Electric Daisy Carnival warranted interviews with outlets as diverse as the newsworthy Wall Street Journal and NPR, plus the indie-hipster international bible, Spin Magazine and tastemaker blog The Music Ninja.

The Glitch Mob, one of very few acts to include live instruments, sometimes pounded on three sets of drums to push its hip-hop remixes even further into bass-heavy foreboding.”
