cram it all in


Hey folks, sorry about the severe lack of posting. Finals have bitten us squarely in the ass, but now that summer is officially here, we shall get back to our regular updating schedule. Avenge The Virgins is back in the game.


10 000 Volt Ghost- Pardon?

10 000 Volt Ghost is a relatively unknown producer out of San Francisco. I don't know too much about him, but the minute I heard this song, I was hooked. I was initially scared that this would be another electro banger, but "Pardon?" is actually a very diverse song; double-time handclaps, huge synths, a deep bassline and a great melody all make an appearance. Relatively simple, yet very effective. Bay Area in the house.

EPMD- Da Joint

Late nineties EPMD is still good EPMD. I love these guys, everything from the production to the flow just oozes dope.

Curtis Vodka- Love has come (Meatloaf Edit series)

A simple, soulful edit of Donald Byrd's tune by my favorite Alaskan producer, Curtis Vodka. He's been releasing loads of free edits in this vein recently, as part of the "Meatloaf Edit" series. If I could spread this shit on toast in the morning I would. Buttery smooth and groovy as hell.

High Rankin- Meow Meow

Meow.

The Fugees- Fiesta-La (The Heatwave refix)

Classic tune Fugee-La vs Fiesta Riddim (Akon's "Gunshot" is probably the most well-known tune on this riddim). The Heatwave Soundsystem are the kings of dancehall edits, in my opinion. Oh-la-la-la.

NGUZUNGUZU- WHAT DANCE?

This L.A duo makes some of the weirdest bass-heavy electronic music out there. Fluokids described them as "Blaqstarr meets trance", which is kind of accurate. The most bizarre array of sounds and influences all stirred into a rave-tastic tropical gumbo. Sirens, a repetitive sample that sounds like the voice of Charlie Brown's Teacher, water dropping into a bucket, rainforest bass and more. Holy fuck.
