under the weather

skirting the line between dapper and debauchery. providing a truckload of spacey beats for a rainy spring morning.

U-Tern- Style, Class, Flair

Vancouver's own unfuckwithable king of new disco-tinged house music. U-tern is one of the best producers in the game at the moment, and he always makes the grooviest and most soulful disco originals or re-edits. This is a brand new original song, and it overflows with funk. This song evokes an image of George Clinton doing blow in Studio 54, at four in the morning. Oh yeah.

Gwen McRae- Funky Sensation (Masters at Work remix)

MAW + Gwen McRae = One of the best party breaks of all time. Get with it, y'all. This is making this shitty morning a little more bearable.

Fred Falke- 8:08 PM @ the beach

My first-born child will be conceived to this song. Fred Falke uber alles. This is baby making electronic music at its best.

Hermanez- Soms

We don't usually post straight up techno, but when I came across this tune, I could not resist. Yes, people, the beat is massively repetitive, but therein lies the beauty of it. A bouncy techno anthem with a great vocal backdrop. I've never been to Ibiza, but if I was on mushrooms, dancing on the beach at sunrise there, this would be the soundtrack to my life.

Pearl Harbor- California Shakedown

Earnest, laid-back indie rock written by two beautiful women. Might not be your cup of tea, but this song fits my mood at the moment like no other.

Cosmin TRG- Strobe Lick
I'm quite surprised that so few people know of Cosmin TRG. He makes really innovative,haunting bass-heavy music in the vein of Joy Orbison. Sparse melodies, spacey basslines and an almost claustrophobic sense of eeriness all characterize his music. Although that pretentious little description might turn some of you off, give it a listen anyways. You won't regret it.

Metal on Metal- Bastard (Seventeen Veins remix)

"The drugs are not working, I'm still dancing, I forgot my name." To quote their myspace, they handcraft brutal minimal music. Seventeen Veins is a duo from Montreal who show great promise. Keep an eye out for these guys, their remixes are monstrous.


A little preview of the next artist feature I'll be doing. We've recently received a bunch of submissions by e-mail, but one that really stood out was Flirtphonic. I'll be doing a full-fledged feature in the next few days, but I'll leave you with a great exclusive. As you know, I love exposing young up-and-coming talent to the masses, so Flirtphonic's music was right up my alley. He's a 21 year old from New York who is currently living in Seoul. I'll leave you with a massive re-work of Organ Donor that will leave you short of breath, with blood dripping out of your ears, possibly on the run from the law.

DJ Shadow- Organ Donor (Flirtphonic remix)

-MDMAwesome, once again providing a metric ton of music. My bad.
