Comin’ straight outta Sydney, Australia, it’s Source Invisible with his first Dynasty Shit album! The album is full of colorful melodies and futuristic electronic rhythms to get your head into a spin and your feet working hard. Both experimental/forward-think AND accessible (as any good art should be).
‘Epidemic of Sleep’ is a perfect name for it, as it describes both the mental state that Source Invisible was in when he made the album as well as the pacing of the music. It sounds like audio-ADHD, rambling around and then jumping up and down, in an ultimate refusal to turn off the lights and go to bed.
Although it’s hard (and probably a waste of time) to try to define this kind of thing with a single genre, ‘Epidemic’ contains bits of of old school acid and rave, a metric ton of jungle and footwork, and they’re all mixed up into a syrup, dried, cut, and finally snorted.
In other words, this music feels so good, it makes actual drugs jealous.
released 10 December 2014
Yes, 2014 is almost over, thankfully. It had it’s ups and it’s downs, but it’s going to be terrific to see all the, ‘2015,’ stamps all over the place soon. So what’s terrible about December? Well, I have to pay rent today, and I don’t want to ;) but besides that, it should be a pretty good month.
Cock Rock Disco is back, for all fans of hardcore. For those of you who don’t remember, Cock Rock Disco was the legendary label that Jason Forrest ran, featuring Dev/Null, Duran Duran Duran, and many other awesome hardcore electronic act from a few years back. Now, you can get all that music for free on their website!
Oh, and old skool rave music has been gearing up to make a prett heavy swing into the forefront of electronic music. I find that incredibly exciting, and it’s why the ‘theme’ of the month features an old rave flyer with Keith Harring style doodles on it! (Yes, I ‘sampled’ this flyer and redid the words to fit my own needs. Figured it’d be cool. Hope that’s ok?)
There’s a fucking ridiculous sale going on now at https://sellfy.com/bassadelic , with most of our sample packages going for about half of the normal price. Folks are getting into that, so if you’re considering a purchase, now is probably the time – the sale will end abruptly, all of a sudden, out of nowhere, so you’d better hurry :)
Been working on some new tutorial videos, and I’m still definitely doing more of the ‘5-minute beat tutorials,’ too. Also, there is going to be a new additional series of tutorials coming out on Bassadelic soon that, for real, ISN’T by (me) StrangeFlow. …I know, right? What?!! Not going to say who it is just yet, but I’m looking forward to it!! Looking forward to telling 2014 to fuck off and die. Bassadelic is now back where it really got off the ground, Washington State. I know I’ve mentioned that a few times now, but I find it exciting! I love it here! Been able to do so much more with music production (and productivity in general) so starting off 2015 in this mode should be nothing but awesome! Dynasty Shit, the label we run, is also going full swing, with footwork going hard in the fuckin paint and folks really beginning to take notice. I hope that continues!
Alright, well, stay tuned! Hope everyone is doing well. Not going to have any Christmas themed posts, so, uh, don’t look forward to that, I guess. lol. Unless you count the black friday sale, which is still going on for some reason, thus making it, technically, a ‘holiday sale.’ Ah well.
Hey, what about some fuckin trax or something?
OK! Here’s a fun old skool mix, straight outta’ ’93!!
BTW, have you heard of eP✺xY reC✺rDs? Because you haven’t yet, there’s a good chance you will soon! It’s a brand new label, and they just put out their first compilation last night! Check it out here:
Anyway, yay! 2015! Yea! A StrangeFlow is in the works, too. Get ready for some 2015 PHUNK. No, not funk. PHUUUUUNK. Well, maybe it will be funk with an, ‘f,’ you’ll just have to wait and see.
