Single: Phutureprimitive – Massive Attack / Teardrop
Genre: electronic, bass, dubstep, glitch hop, remix
From his Facebook page: “Phutureprimitive is the moniker of Northwest producer and song writer Rain. (…) [His] music is singular and unique in its approach: Lush melodies drift across intricate rhythms, groove heavy beats and warm, fuzzy bass lines. Often exploring a dark and dense palette, his music also manages to convey a sense of tranquility and beauty, engaging the listener into hypnotic movement and often escalating toward a full kinetic experience. Conceived and produced in a digital environment, his music manages to convey more humanity and organic warmth then typically found in an often cold and sterile genre. Shimmering with cinematic qualities, his music ultimately speaks to both the mind and the body.”
Massive Attack / Teardrop is a free download from Bandcamp.
EP: Lidsky – Frozen In Time
Genre: electronic, bass, blues, dubstep, glitch, jazz, soul, hip hop
From the album page: “Frozen In Time is the debut release from 16 year old Colorado native Lidsky, and in spite of the title, the EP moves across all spectrums of music history effortlessly. Vintage samples find themselves to be perfectly at home alongside retro 80’s synthesis and smooth vocal chops ripped straight out of 90’s boom-bap rap. Every track on the EP has something a little different to offer, and reveals a small part of Lidsky’s eclectic musical interests. The opener, Feeling Tha Blues flips a Muddy Waters sample into a huge, incredibly danceable booty-shaker of a track. Likewise, tribute gets paid to jazz legend Ornette Coleman in To See The Light in a way that not only reflects Lidsky’s love for Coleman, but also his philosophies on music as a whole. You won’t want to miss this!”

Well enter, stage left, Dysphemic & Miss Eliza! Bloomed in Melbourne, Australia from a kiss in the depths of a drum and bass party, D&E’s obsession with music and each other spawned an outfit built on melodic complexity, slamming drums, violin virtuosity and double time rap.”
