Loop Stepwalker Guestmix for Filth.fm April 2011 by Loop Stepwalker
Stylust coming through with a full length mix tape showcasing my favorite skill of his, the mashup. His clean and inventive approach to the mash is anything but contrived. He manages (usually) to avoid clutter while comfortably inserting as many layers as he damn well pleases, which is never something to be ignored. Even if the track listing leaves quite a bit to be desired in that it implements tracks one can predict to be in every dubstep mix one could possibly find on the internet, his approach to using those tracks as tools in a greater composition definitely goes hard.
I don't know much about this Snubluck fellow, other than he's a beat machine, he's from Denver, and he's got a release on a free DL label by the name of Amenorea. The label's site is down, but here is a list of their productions, all free, to play around with (Snub's is AMNEP028). The list is long and new to me, so again I don't have much to say about it. The music runs in the vague vein of Experimental electronic, with lotsa Trip-hop and Brainfeeder-esque L.A. Beat goin' on. The sounds borderline Skweee, especially with respect to Snub, and it's all quite tasteful and glitchy enough to satisfy the coldest heart. His end of the world mix, below, is the only sampler you need to sell you. Dig it up, yo.End Of The World? Mix by Snubluck (Snub)

These sick bastards have been giving me a lot of support in the last few months. From my initial uncovering of Bullwack there sparked a synaptic wave of discoveries and interest on both sides of the blog (me interested in promoting, them interested in being promoted) for which I have been happy and thankful to further. While I have not been giving them as much attention as I feel I should be, I wholly intend to dig deeper into their creative process with promos posted below, analysis of their work, and future interviews. Keep fucking killing it, gents, and I'll keep talkin' nice about ya.
If there is one, ONE, thing I want you to absorb on this post it is the work of Frederick Olufsen. Since devouring page after page on his soundcloud I could think of little else but how badly I needed to share this with you. This is the man behind the curtain, founder of the label and dastardly producer to boot. I can scarcely comprehend the amount of flair and straight up swag sauce that go into each and every piece of work.
His approach is bright, upbeat, and funky as all hell, bending bitcrushers into slapping gated electro snares, growling clean bass, and a synth I haven't heard around too much that emulates the sound of a fender slap bass with such artistically rambunctious supremacy it's hard to drive from my head when I'm away from it for too long. The cleanliness of the sampling seen here is absurd as well. Just listen, folks, just listen and you'll know. Words do little justice.
"Big ups" is almost offensive here in its inability to summarize the congratulatory sentiments clustered inside me. "Fucking swagger cannon" seems slightly more precise.Turboweekend - Into The Pavement (Frederik Olufsen Remix) by Frederik Olufsen Yenn - Unqueer (Frederik Olufsen's Drumstep Bad Ass Bass In Ya Face Remix) by Frederik Olufsen

These are some of my favorite people in the electronic world, right here. So amiable and sharply conversational, and so. Damn. Talented. From the very first Bullwack track I stumbled across, which inherently led to the discovery of collabs with King Minos and others, the incalculable amount of tightness possessed therein led me to the realization that the group was going to be a goldmine of wonderful, inventive sounds. A goldmine that was destined to hold down solid placement in my list of favorites indefinitely.
Each track the guys rock challenge the borders of Electro, crossing into the down and dirty regions of Glitch and Dubstep, the compositions are simultaneously disco-groovy and shit-stomping dirty. The care in each sampling cut, synth filter, and elaborate beat is soulful and immaculate to the nth degree. Below are some swagged out promos we were fortunate enough to receive from the ever monarchical Royal Fetish Recordings, off the fresh King Minos release "Redskin Warrior". The release has a side-A titled after the release, and an AA remix by Fuckin' Telmini that is just pure evil. Get it here. ...And en-fucking-joy deez:

This crew hit me up monthssssss ago solely on the basis that they liked some comment I left on a Shigeto track. This is hardly your usual soundcloud spam, though at the time I dismissed it as such. Since then, the Philly based bunch has worked their way into a solid place of permanent fondness within me. Their eclectic style leads to much variation, so I suggest you troll through their Soundcloud to get the full taster, but I can tell you this much: they rock heavy old school Skweee vibes, know what's up with the DnB, destroy the face of Trip-Hop, and dabble in down-to-midtempo glitch. Consume, enjoy:

Superman Fast has been a consisitent feature on our little thingthing here for quite sometime. His enthusiasm for the blog and its writers is quite commendable, and our enthusiasm for his ambling lyrical sense and trip-hop infused beats cannot be overstated keep it ripping, Christian. Dig the new tracks, people:

Another sterling human being in addition to supremely savvy mixist, right here. His creation of a disticnt mixing style and articulation has been one of my many firmly followed local endeavors. Each mix upstages the last (as they should) with flow and double drops to boot. His production follows the vein of sampling dominance championed by Superman Fast and the like. Quite natural, in that they are each others' key collaborator it would seem. Here lies his latest artful mix, and an LP with Fast:
