Addison Groove-‘It’s Got Me’ /’Minutes Of Funk’ (Preview)

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , on March 30, 2011 by J.D.

Release date 2 May

3024’s West Country themed takeover climaxes with the 2 previously unheard tracks from one man genre Addison Groove. Marrying hyper kinetic drum programming and dusty-crate dwelling loops to gauzy electronic textures and introspective breakdowns has marked the artist formerly known as Headhunter out as exactly the kind of resolutely unclassifiable Producer 3024 set out to support, and the below tracks are the strongest evidence yet of the increasing refinement of the Addison Groove sound.

‘It’s Got Me’ opens with broken window Rhodes twinkling & primal toms locked into an increasingly intricate call & response routine with whiplash snares. Multiple vocal splices break the surface as each voice is submerged under constantly shifting synth drones, Roland sonar blips and Swiss watch percussion before bursting back through with metronomic bludgeon.

Flipside ‘Minutes Of Funk’ inverts the disorientating murk of it’s predecessor by anchoring proceedings around an instantly recognisable refrain and drizzling humid analogue fuzz over the top, while the shared engine of pounding toms, machine gun hats and well concealed 808 hits provide 5 minutes of relentless interstate momentum.

Wrapped around the physical version is probably Erosie’s most elaborate sleeve design yet, with the chromatic splicing a perfect partner for the contents it flamboyantly protects.

Portland beat maker and vocalist Natasha Kmeto has been on the upswing since the release of her latest album Expressor. Her live performances have been making waves, most notably supporting legendary acts such as Morcheeba, Meat Beat Manifesto, and making her debut appearance at LA’s groundbreaking Low End Theory club night. Portland’s foremost authority on beat music, devonwho took one of the more sultry tracks off of Expressor and flipped it into a deeply hypnotic and emotive remix that let’s his meticulous production stand tall while keeping the intended feeling of the Natasha’s vocals intact. Overall a fine demonstration of what Portland has to offer.

No Surrender to Release Medicine Babies
(June 16, 2011, ZerOKilled Music)
Pitchfork Premieres MP3 of Silver Hall”
ft. Tunde Adembipe of TV on the Radio
“Your new favorite shit.”–Vice Magazine

Just remember that Medicine Babies is the name of the album dropping…and it’s gonna be dope.”RCRD LBL
No stranger to the New York underground scene, No Surrender is gearing up to release their intricate sophomore effort Medicine Babies (June 16th, 2011, ZerOKilled Music). Blending hip-hop, electro, soul, synth-pop, and indie-rock, No Surrender’s spanning sound is genre-bending . Produced by former Tricky muse singer Costanza Francavilla and European production team Radioclit (Santigold, M.I.A The Very Best), Medicine Babies will be featuring several guests including TV On The Radio’s Tunde Adebimpe.
No Surrender’s members, Seraphim, Steeples, and Gnomad, banded together during the 90s, co-hosting the famous Revenge of The Muse parties at venues such as Brownies, CBGB’s Gallery, and Baby Jupiter, before Guiliani’s New York took its stronghold. Sharing the stage with Mike Ladd, Antipop Consortium, Stiffed (Santigold’s former band), and Apollo Heights, they proved to be a New York staple.
After self-releasing their critically lauded debut, White Power Black Magic, No Surrender was put on hold- due to good news. Eddie Steeples became a permanent cast member on NBC’s My Name Is Earl, playing Darnell/Crabman. Shelving unfinished tracks they began working on, Seraphim participated in different projects (including guesting on tracks for Evil Nine and Infesticons) until Steeples finished filming. Picking up right where they left off, but adding years of experience and influences, No Surrender took on producer Costanza Francavilla to finish Medicine Babies in the ZerOKilled studio in Brooklyn.
Check out the Pitchfork premiere of “Silver Hall”,which features Tunde Adembipe of TV on the Radio, and production by Radioclit.The premiere also includes the fantastic video for “Godda Get It”Medicine Babies’ first single, “Godda Get It” premiered last year, and also features production by Radioclit. The track, which RCRD LBL called “a groping, grimy jam sticky with parking-lot feedback, Rick James-esque yelps, and fuzzy synths,”.
