Podcast 71: Future Blappin' with Lazer Sword

Of all the acts currently pushing that future-bass-lazer-blap (whatever you prefer to call it) sound into the far reaches of today's dancefloors, none is nearer and dearer to the heart of XLR8R than the Lazer Sword boys. Okay, that might have a little something to do with the fact that both Bryant Rutledge and Antaeus Roy are former employees of the magazine, but their time spent plugging away at subscriber emails and MP3s is hardly the reason these guys are blowing up club scenes from San Francisco to Scotland. With that in mind, we commissioned the duo to make us this hour-long mix to show off just exactly what Lazer Sword is about when it comes to music.

In true form, the boys didn't hold back, delivering a 36-track set that features hip-hop, future-bass, electro, and more. Many of the tracks are remixes Rutledge and Roy have made themselves, and, in true Lazer Sword fashion, names like Dr. Dre and Keak Da Sneak crop up on the tracklisting.

We know Lazer Sword for its ability to bring a party with unbridled enthusiasm and a healthy sense of humor, whether that means DJing to a crowd dressed as a Jesus medallion and the Fresh Prince of Bel Air or taking one for the team and playing strange festivals populated by scary neo-hippies. See this mix for further affirmation. Photo by Jordan Fraker

See, the problem with typing in ALL CAPS is that your link doesn't work when it's copied and pasted. so you need to use lower case, or actually, just make sure your URL is correct.

lol...youre kidding me....i dont think you kids get it, you can sample this, loop that, add all the little bleeps and noize you want....it's not gonna save it, it's the actual rapping itself that sounds tired....not to mention that slowed down dubover reverb....GAME OVER

Lazer Sword is defining the West Coast scene right now. talk all the trash you want about how it ain't this, it ain't that... they're pushing the sound and sparking a movement... what are you doing?
