Bits of Beats for November 8, 2012
Sirkus Sirkuz is the new solo project from Decky Hedrock (The Japanese Popstars) and he’s released three EPs Plastic Explosive, Telefunk, Little Rodent this week on US based 9G Records and are available at Beatport. Here’s a taste of his techno bangers that are getting a lot of DJ support including S-File, Felix da Housecat, Shadow Dancer, Turbo Turbo just to name a few.
David Ezra Brown
There’s nice sci-fi, spacejazz grooves coming soon from New York-based drummer, David Ezra Brown on the French IDM imprint, Bedroom Research. The sample below is just a taste of David’s blend of recorded drums, field recordings, and analog synths. No firm release date yet for this one, so keep on the lookout for it via BR’s Bandcamp.
Keeping the spacey jazz drum theme going, Uio Loi (pronounced “oo-ee-oh loy” and formerly known as Smoke Room) dropped this single a couple of weeks ago on Soundcloud that has been a constant play for yours truly. As the drums and synths commence, the saxophone is wrestling with the spirits. His project, Caramelism, is already listed as a top release for 2012 for me. Listening to “Leporidae”, he has more great music in store for 2013.
What begins as downtempo electronic quickly turns into thick bass heat on the Kids EP from Asvra. This two-track tasty is a free download right now from Australian-based Apdapted Records, so grab it! Tell ASVRA thanks on Facebook.
