Teeth See Spaces 7" (Moshi Moshi Records, 2010)

"See Spaces"
Listen

The heavy-hitting synths are relentless! They pump throughout your body profusely for the entirety of the track. Veronica So's vocals are such a pleasant mixture of different styles, purring binaurally, caressing your eardrums. Electro club music is good with my coffee and cigarettes in the morning.

Blog Spot Beats: Mitchell Akiyama, Matthewdavid, Sawako + Daisuke Miyantani

Viral Sounds

Mitchell Akiyama If Night is a Weed and Day Grows Less (Sub Rosa, 2004)

"With Hope That (For Steve Reich)"
Listen

This track consists of piano loops and cello—with no less than ten chords swarming you immediately—sucking you in for six minutes of heartfelt bliss. You'll hear plucking and bowing of cello and redundant keys set to cross-coordinate patterns. Listening to this song, I feel as though I'm in a surreal world in which futuristic hybrid birds are standing around me in a circle bobbing their heads, with more flying above in a sphere, creating a perfect dome of inconsistent movement circulating in different levels.

Anne Laplantine, "Spring won't find us" (2009)
Listen + download

Ms. Laplantine is a French musician and video artist who lives and works in Paris. While her previous 11 releases mine the sound-art vein of experimental electronica this release debuts her dreamy vocals, layered into thirteen minutes of soul warming future folk. These haunting voals fused with earth-toned landscapes create the compelling musical language this album. She claims that this is her last release, after 9 years of music crafting, to focus on board games and Facebook.


Constrobuz, "Glorious Nippon" (2010)
Listen + download

Chris Papp of Raleigh, North Carolina has been dishing out beat tapes to the web like hot cakes since he was 16. Strictly Beats mention rates Bleep Blorp Remixes as "one of the best tapes ever... on the net." Now he's 19 years old and his followers are hypnotized by his sound. His atypical producing strategies have warped the online hip hop scene.

Glorious Nippon boasts a wirey synth melody, lots of lush, spacey compression, and immaculate drum placement (a Constrobuz signature). This track is based on a sample from the 70's prog rock band CMU.


Lil B, "I'm God" (2010)
Watch and listen at YouTube

Lil B is sensibly retarded. He has a fairly large cult of people who idolize him (his YouTube tracks can sport a quarter million views or more). His lyrics are hilarious, vulgar, psychedelic and unexplainable delivered with a deadpan, lewd-emcee crackhead manner. He claims his name 'Lil B' stands for Lil Boss, but then goes by 'Lil Based.' Either way, half the time he goes by "Based God." At one point he had around 122 myspace pages for his music, each one with a different name.

This track, from the "6 Kiss" album, starts off with a sample from Imogen Heap's "Just For Now" --her dreamlike vocals serenading on the beat. He goes on rapping about absolute nonsense. Or maybe there's meaning. Who knows? Some people think Lil B is dragging this ego along to become the next Lil Wayne. Some think he's the new Wesley Willis. Regardless, I think he needs to keep doing what he's doing. Because he's working and producing thousands plus me are hooked.


(ED's note: Lil B is defininitely a strange phenomenon. Check out his 'positive' track "Age of Information" plus tracks like "Wonton Soup," "I'm a Fag I'm a Lesbian" & "Like a Martian" for a better scope of this peculiar voice in hip hop.)
