Review: Chrissy Murderbot I'm a Asshole EP

Hated It

On the obnoxiously titled (and grammatically incorrect) I'm a Asshole EP, Chicago juke/ghetto-house appropriator Chrissy Murderbot takes his "concept of sleaze" to new lows. Read more »

Global Communication, Frankie Knuckles, Matias Aguayo, and Many More to Perform as Part of RBMA Madrid

It was unfortunate news that the Red Bull Music Academy had to withdraw from hosting this year's events in Tokyo in the wake of the devastating tsunami, but things started looking brighter once Madrid was named as the new locale RBMA 2011 would inhabit. Now, with the announcement of the first round of events scheduled to take place in the Spanish capital, the excitement has jumped a notch. Read more »

Download: eLan "2in5four (Low Limit Remix)"

Label: Monkeytown

San Diego, CA producer eLan is having a very busy year. He already released two EPs in 2011 on Modeselektor’s Monkeytown label, and has another EP and a double album, Next2Last, due out later this month. eLan, a member of Shlohmo's WeDidItCollective, sent over this remix from the second disc, a lurching, low-end-heavy production crafted by another West Coaster, Low Limit (a.k.a. the LA-based half of Lazer Sword).

Five Minutes at Decibel with Asura

In between running around the entirety of Seattle for this year's Decibel Festival, we managed to find a moment or two to sit down with a few artists and have a quick chat. Here, we nab some face time with LA producer/musician Ryan York (a.k.a. Asura), and talk with the Non Projects associate about his experience at Decibel, his forthcoming projects, and Futura, his nearly year-old monthly night with fellow LA-based producer Teebs.

Download: The Album Leaf "D Day (Sister Crayon Remix)"

Apparently, The Album Leaf is still alive and kicking. Although we admittedly lost track of the project's woozy, electronic-leaning soundscapes several years ago, we have no qualms with this remix of "D Day" from Sacramento-based trio Sister Crayon (pictured above). The two groups are about to wrap up a string of joint US tour dates, and elected to remix one another to mark the occasion. "D Day (Sister Crayon Remix)" won't shock anyone, but its gently soaring melodies, plinking laptop percussion, and twee vibe all combine to form a nice piece of ear candy. Sister Crayon's upcoming tour dates can be found after the jump.  Read more »

Download: Samoyed "Maybe Yes (Lukid Remix)"

This piece of astral beat work is taken off the forthcoming Spit EP by Samoyed, which will drop via Astro:Dynamics on October 17. UK producer Lukid warps "Maybe Yes" into a shimmering-but-somber cut that should work quite nicely closing out this forthcoming four-track record.
