la grasse matinée

Wha gwaan, brethren?

Today's post will attempt to give more exposure to some great up-and-coming producers. Although some of you might not have heard of them yet, it is my belief that based on the strength of their recent output, their new tunes will be unavoidable in the coming year. This is the new guard of '11, you have been warned.

Damu- Kula Cola

Good lord, what a tune. Damu is a 21 year old producer out of Manchester who started out making hip-hop & breaks, and has recently been dishing out a slew of insane releases that fuse house energy with dark synths that seem lifted straight out of grime. He dropped this one on his soundcloud a few days ago for free, surprisingly. It's like a molotov cocktail of monstrous bass, twitchy synth lines and bouncy drums.

Krueger- Spaceerase

You should expect to see a lot of more of Krueger on Avenge The Virgins, if he keeps releasing these gargantuan bass tunes. Spaceerase is an interesting creature, a ridiculously dope amalgamation of a soulful, deliriously chopped up vocal sample, and a futuristic/cosmic bassline. The word sci-fi unavoidably comes to mind, which is probably due to the stargazy synths and the vicious bass.

Bad Autopsy- Psionic terror (link now fixed!)

I know next to nothing about UK producer Bad Autopsy, besides the fact that he makes absolutely terrifying music. He's remixed such acts as Hot City & Nguzunguzu, and has a few top-notch releases to his name. This particular tune was birthed last year, but its eerie dancehall vibes would fit into any set these days and still eviscerate dancefloors. Be sure to check Bad Autopsy's soundcloud for a plethora of freaky rave monsters.

Mister Tweeks - Numéro Sept (Original Mix) by pelicanfly

Pelican Fly is so bloody dope. This young Belgian label has only put out one release so far (the Richelle EP, cop that shiiiit), but it has already garnered an incredible amount of support from legions of DJs, producers and tastemakers. One of the crazier remixes on that EP was a epileptic refix of Mascotte by a relatively unknown Belgian producer known as Mister Tweeks, and what do you know, Pelican Fly's second release is Mister Tweeks' moment to shine. FLY002 will drop on 25/04/2011, it features original tracks Numéro Sept, Money and Elevator as well as remixes by High Powered Boys, DJ Rizzla and Lucid.

I, for one, cannot wait. Their sounds are so incredibly refreshing and forward-thinking without seeming forced at all. Great vibes, an incredible energy and savage rhythms. Get ready for the Mister Tweeks & Pelican Fly takeover, it'll happen sooner than you think.

Hope you've enjoyed the tunes. If you're in Montreal tonight, try not to miss Ramadanman/Pearson Sound/Maurice Donovan, Rilly Guilty, Lexis and the great Zed Bias/Maddslinky @ Club Lambi. Heavy bass, footworkin' and sexy vibes all.night.long.

I'm out!
