Moth Equals

Searching through unsigned artists often throws up surprising results and one welcome surprise was that of young UK based producer, Moth Equals. With 10 years+ production under his belt he’s beginning to carve a sound for himself, evident on not one but two long players he’s made available for music fans. With a variety of stlyes on offer throughout these two albums, Moth Equals and his ‘ghost’ have taken influence from DJ Krush, Massive Attack and Thievery Corporation amongst others and used them to fuel the trip-hop melodies that carry you from start to finish on each LP. A very exciting producer and we’re eager to see him link up with a turntablist he keenly searches for future collaborations. Take in both ‘Dreamcoat’ and ‘The Fall And Rise’, they are a fantastic reflection of one mans creative output.

Both albums available on a name your price basis but do the right thing and bung this guy some ca$h ūüôā

Free Beats

Once again the Bot has been endlessly crawling the internets for the best in free and legal music for the listeners and this week unearthed a stack of beats.

First up is this 4 track E.P from our homie and label boss Sub of Syncopathic Recordings. Tirelessly working to promote fresh producers is Subs game and for this release we see Double O, Theory and LXC on production duties alongsie a VIP from the man himself. ‘Come Close’ by Theory features on this weeks Robot Bodypop show because it’s mega. Available on Soundcloud and Sub has also kindly provided links to either MP3 or WAV meaning you can take these beats to the dancefloor as well.

Next up is a mighty 14 track long player from net label Future Grooves and this is compilation Vol.1. This collection sees unheard and unfinished tracks from producers from the UK, Europe, USA and Canada and moves through future garage, dubstep, juke and much more. Published as an attempt to gain these producers more followers and make no mistake about the quality of tracks on here. Several of our favourite producers feature such as Qualmsound with his atmospheric 2-step in ‘The Object’, Crystal Eyes with the deep and rolling vocal tinged ‘Black Magick’ topped off with ‘Stay’ by Henry Krinkle who’s smooth groove and vocals ensured inclusion on this weeks Robot Bodypop show.

A serious amount of talent on display here so be sure to check out the producers other works.

Finally another compilation this time from Mad Decent with Jeffrees Vol. 4. In their own words:

“Just barely 7 months old and we’re already on the 4th volume of Jeffree’s compilations! This one continues the series with a diverse selection of new talent from across the electronic music landscape, beginning with 19 year old Phat Deuce’s “Bubble Di Sistem”, a staple track in Diplo’s live set. Next up is the new J-Wow (of Buraka Som Sistema) project called Branko, featuring Dominique Young Unique and a remix by French producer French Fries. Scotland’s Lockah follows with a penchant for melody in the context of sub-octave bass music that defies any one genre. A series of 4 instrumentals from the mysterious producer UZ comes next. Having first caught our attention when he came out of nowhere with a string of huge trap-inspired beats on his Soundcloud page, UZ is one of the most exciting new producers in this growing scene. DJ Shaun D from the Netherlands rounds out the package with two more banging club tunes that Diplo has been rinsing out for quite some time.”

‘Now You Wanna’ by Lockah features on this weeks Robot Bodypop show so be sure to check out more of his productions

Wachs Lyrical (Regent) – The Long Walk South

¬†“The Long Walk South”, with it’s unique blend of seductive, deep vocals and a non-trivial bassline, is, first of all, a brilliant attempt to think over the UK bass scene outbreak through a prism of the American soul. With 2 other swaggerish solo tracks, a chopped & screwed remix from Kingthing, a halfstep wonder refix from Mista Men and a garage-rave mutant edit from Sentinels, it might seem this release is perfectly balanced to please any audience.

We are deleriously happy this week with the discovery that The Long Walk South is now out as a free release РThis is an unbelievable giveaway from eastern european label Wicked Bass Records Рperhaps my favourite so far on this blog. Preview all 6 tracks here then grab the DL from mediafire.

Eliphino – More Than Me EP

Following on from realeases on Manchester based Hoya Hoya and Giles Peterson’s Brownswood label, London based producer/dj – Eliphino – has found his finest form to date with this new EP ‘More Than Me’. Low down, deep and dirty house music for the clubs, released on limited edition vinyl via somethinksounds on Oct 31st. The full EP features three low slung dancefloor bangers – ‘More Than Me’, ‘Devoted’ and ‘I-Played’ – fuzzy, warm and atmospheric. Eliphino switches up the style but never fails to dazzle.

The hype has been building for the past 3 months for this,¬†Eliphino’s¬†most recent release on Some Think Records.¬†The vaguely anthemic title track sets us up nicely for the late night club¬†vibes on¬†I Played and the deep yet catchy 2step¬†flavours¬†of the final track Devoted which features on this weeks show. One for the bag which will be rocking many a club dancefloor for months to come. Preview below, then buy.
