Simon & G-Funk / 27.05.2011

Early in March, we had Victoria-based Monolithium up for an interview on music, his monthly sub|divison, and the Canadian bass scene in general.
The Monolithium remix of Ricardo Villalobos' Easy Lee was featured in XLR8R’s top downloads of 2011 and we were talking about his debut EP back then.
Today we are happy to have a definite release date for you: 'Simon & G-Funk' will see the neon light of your favourite beat cave not later than June 6.

To celebrate this swaggy piece of astral crunk (self-definition), we pressed 200 copies of lush white vinyl, featuring remixes by Prison Garde and LuckyMe-affiliated ANGO.
Run to see Monolithium live at Mutek June 4, and for now, grab this wonderfully electric re-make of 'Selfish Lil' Crunk' by swing sultan RocCazba.

Jameszoo is trippin / 23.05.2011

After Anenon and S.Maharba we're back with another exclusive mixtape from one of the most exciting producers of the moment, Kindred Spirits' wunderkind Jameszoo. Not much is known about the young fella except he's 19 (can you believe?) and that he is going to release a concept album around the iconic figure of Hermeto Pascoal on Amsterdam's Kindred Spirits (Dorian Concept, Jneiro Jarel, Mwëslee, ...).
We first saw the light in his eyes when the futuristic Pixelord's remix dropped on Lucid Freaks pt.2, but he's now ready to take off with his own melange of future-soul and abstract beats. Go cop his 7" to get an idea of what we're talking about…

When i'm trippin is a 23-tracks journey into Jameszoo's musical world, connecting past and present of the Nu-School beats. From Jazz to Boom Bap Hip Hop, from experimental electronica to new Bass-science.
Originality is still alive somewhere…this is the place!
