cascading through your brain

Today, we're going to go off the beaten path. Hope you're wearing suitable attire, this could get messy.

Odus- Three Wishes (Original mix)

This is a recent discovery of mine, a track submitted by a reader. I know next to nothing about Odus, besides that he comes from Reims, but after a quick look at his soundcloud page, I'm a fan. This mp3 was tagged as minimal house, but fear not, dear readers, I wouldn't have posted minimal on a Wednesday afternoon. If this was Saturday at 5am, that's a different story, but I digress. Odus' Three Wishes has much more in common with the bubbling, ascending crescendos that are so popular in the new wave of tropical/ethno/percussive house that we all know and love. While I'm not sure Odus would agree with this assumption, my gut reaction is to say that this wouldn't seem out of place in a Sound Pellegrino-esque set or mix. What do you think? Let us know in the comments, if you wish. (Big Ups to Source of Cool for the recommendation)


Samo Sound Boy- Bort Sampson Riddim

I had never heard of Samo Sound Boy before he released his EP The Bandit, and since then, I've been trying to keep up with his releases. He got featured on a few charts, and also featured on the remix package of Expendable Youth's Cannibalistic, along with ATV favorites LOL Boys. This L-A based producer makes really trippy nigh-unclassifiable bass heavy club music. This song in particular sounds like what would happen if the the 20th century Fox theme was played by Aztecs with sticks and stones. His other work is more on the crazier club tip (check out the soundcloud link posted below), but I had a hankering for some weirder shit.

You know, I've just peeked at his myspace bio (stream of consciousness writing fuck yes) and it says that he learned how to DJ from experimental cumbia producers in Argentina, an influence that I can definitely hear. He also spent time as a van driver and record stamper for Mad Decent Records, which probably also affected his creative process as well, given that he was around all those crazy DJs and producers. So, here's my second take on Samo Sound Boy's sound: it is post-apocalyptic cumbia club that shreds, and his shit should find a comfortable place in your playlists/sets, if there's any justice in this world. Bong Bong.


Korallreven- Loved-Up (LOL Boys remix)

My love for LOL Boys runs quite deep (czech out this previous feature we did on them for some crazy shit), and given that they are getting massssssive amounts of hype at the moment, I couldn't be happier for them. I hit up Markus recently (the Montreal half of LOL Boys), and let's just say that their new stuff is huge. Like, oil spill MAJOR. They've recently been featured on Sound Pellegrino's new A/V compilation, with a remix of Para One's Toadstool, and they've also done a collabo remix with SP head honcho Teki Latex on Bambounou's great tune Nappy Head. If you've ever wondered what spoken word mixed with Amazonian rainforest/tropicana-rave craziness sounds like, head over to Juno to procure it. It's worth it. (Have you ever heard about my buddy Bambouno? He's chilling)

This particular tune is a remix of a really hazy track by Sweden's own Korallreven. LOL Boys' signature touch is quite apparent on this, and I am definitely not mad at it. The vocal chops are so on-point that it is ridiculous, and somehow, these dudes manage to make something that is almost off-beat sound proper, if that makes any sense. The rhythm is so off-kilter, but their mastery of percussion is Inception-level dreamy.

Although I might seem like a groupie, believe me, LOL Boys are the future, man. This is good stuff.

NICE LITTLE BONUS: Well, we've just been given the green light to post the Para One remix of Toadstool off of the Scion A/V compilation for y'all. I don't really give a damn about being the first to post this (fuck "exclusive shit!"), but I just want to share some great music with y'all. Hope you like this remix, it is nutsbar.
