Hopeless Local Marching Band :: Repeating Myself Remix (Symbolic Interaction)

[Release page] More in tune with orchestral instrumentation and actual song writing, this lot of remixes meanders through calming filters and dampened […]

RUBRENE :: Glowing Overtones igloomag mix

Glowing Overtones is a snapshot of the current experimental-dubstep scene mixed as a continuous sheet of audible electricity.

Funckarma :: Vell Vagranz (n5MD)

 (March 2010) It was inevitable, in a way, that Funckarma would end up absorbing elements of dubstep into their work. Their Legiac project had shown signs of this evolution back in 2008 when Mings Feaner was released on Sending Orbs. Having rather unfairly panned aspects of it in my review back then, its charms have […]

Funckarma :: Elaztiq (Neo Ouija, 12inch)

(04.25.02) Complex arrangements which constantly evolve and move in new directions are evident throughout this excellent 12″. “Briq” is a classic example of this. A storming track that bursts from the speakers with frenzied energy. Unpredictable beats and a mutating structure fused with sizzling, sparkling synths merge together to form the complex, multi-layered and cut-up […]
