Another album brought to you by the ever prolific Claviq. His latest release features a whopping 30 tracks ranging from down-tempo to hard hitters.
It takes a lot to excite me, especially since electronic music is such a fickle lover. She can take you to new places, shower you with all her attention, and offer more gifts than you can possible bare. Or she can lie there- distant and cold. You could say that music and I haven’t been talking much lately.
That changed this morning, when an EP arrived in my inbox and hit me so hard, it was like an arrow piercing through mediocrity. You could say it succeeds by opposing the latest trends. It’s under-produced, minimalist, ambient, and although there’s a drop, it’s not the kind you would expect. But it would be an injustice to refer to the EP as simply a reaction to popular EDM.
‘As it was’ by IamTrip is a beautifully crafted journey through psychedelic and ambient glitch. It also confuses the living hell out of me, which is an excellent sign. I want to bask in its epic post-rock sound, mellow out to its chiller side, and dance to its beats- all within four tracks. I’ve been enjoying ‘As it was’ immensely and hope you enjoy it too.

Really thick production popped from Galex and Karaoke Tundra (SL), who also remixed one of fewer tracks with lyrics that came from Cy6erSlut ft. 2Legit2Quit (RU,CA). Pure madness provided by Save Slaves (RU) who appreciate “Nice haircut” and Stephan Farris (USA) with his interesting tune “Sweton”.

Amazing stuff came from England’s finest, Alphabets Heaven (ENG) with his alien production and Ambassadeurs (ENG) that gave us goosebumbs over his track “M.O.P.E”. Miqi O. Huey Newton (FR) remixed “Gak” from Huess (USA) and gave us lazy snare hit at the back of a neck that is simply unforgettable. Parallel Concept (BUL) went some place deep and created “Buckyball molecule”. Laser synth invasion by Jakub Nox Ambroziak (PL) who gave us “Proton decay” was remixed by Stendek (PL) and we went “Virtual l” with the man himself Powell (FR).

Snag the fresh MartyParty release through the widget above or the direct link below. And when I say “fresh” I mean less than an hour old. The Purple EP is a little taste of what we can expect from MartyParty’s full album debut set to be released on May 31st.
We featured the heavy hitting Superior EP release a few weeks ago on Glitch.CZ and we weren’t surprised to see it hit #1 on the iTunes electronic album charts soon after. The EP’s emphasis on heavy bass probably shook more than a few coffins over the past month. But Marty Party’s latest release, Purple EP, is a different beast entirely and it may leave a few bass lovers asking, “What gives?”
And that’s a good thing.
Fans already familiar with MartyParty’s previous releases, particularly on AN-TEN-NAE Presents and his collaboration with Ooah on the Pantyraid project will know that by no means is MartyParty a one trick pony. With the release of the Purple EP, this artist is showing us loud and clear that this isn’t just another “brostep” album, a pejorative term we’re unfortunately encountering more and more often these days.
If anything, the Purple EP is an indication that we can expect a solid and dynamic release when the full album drops at the end of the month. And if you’re still not convinced, make it out to one of MartyParty’s shows. I defy you not to dance.
“When I returned home from touring North American with The Monsters of Bass, I wanted to sit down and write a collection of songs that summed up the kinds of energy and emotion I found myself feeling and expressing to the audiences on tour every day,” states Marty. “This album touches on various forms of purple energy in a journey through the genre. The Purple album demonstrates the incredible range of this electronic genre and how it can express light and dark, turn from gentle to hard, but always delivers its message using only synthesized sounds.”
The talented Nit Grit and Stephan Jacobs have posted this sweet remix of Gold Guns Girls by Metric. You can grab it for at their soundcloud: http://soundcloud.com/nit-grit/metric-gold-guns-girls-nit or right below.
How nasty is this? Free 320 by Goldrush via Soundcloud. This is definitely one of my favorite producers of late. Heavy Hearted Bliss reminds me of the early morning on the playa.
