Slugabed Sex (Video)

As Slugabed puts it, his latest 12” is the “Soundtrack to your nights of digital pleasure-seeking.”  Like a new age update of the Knight Rider theme, or a really really dope Lexus commercial, (I haven’t decided yet) Slugabed brings a funk heavy feel to sexed up computer games to his latest single ‘Sex’. The video for this track is hilarious and combines my love of sex beats and infomercials, so of course I’m all about it. It’s great when artists don’t take themselves too seriously and can fuck around like this too.

The track ‘Sex’ itself is this sweet mix of Chromeo Fancy Footwork vibes, a shitload of 12 year, old 90s era nerds playing Nintendo and PC computer games, plus some serious synth and effects, all piled on top of each other and vaporized. Smooth. Be sure to snag a copy of this release while you can, which includes remixes of the single ‘Sex’ by Daedelus and Groundislava.

Slugabed’s single Sex 12” and digital DL are out now and his debut album Time Team drops 4/20 via Ninja Tune, get em’ all HERE.

So I didn’t make it to the fairest desert ball of them all this year, but that doesn’t mean I can’t still live vicariously through party invites right? My photo collage today is inspired by all the dope ass Coachella day parties I should be, but sadly am not attending this year. Take a look. Also, since I have no life I started tweeting updates from #Couchella last night, and it turned out to be more entertaining than I expected. If you get bored, feel free to get at me: @itsadredogg.

Groundislava

Lil’ sneak peak of what’s to come from electronic producer Groundislava. This is sick, and goes down so smooth. This track is the alternate version of "Final Impasse" off Groundislava’s debut LP, that didn’t make it onto the record. If this is any indication of what the rest of the album will sound like, the world better make room, cuz Groundislava is drilling, and he won’t stop until he’s carved a nice lil’ spot for himself in between 80’s style synthesizers and video game, spaced out electronic beats. 

Jasper Patterson aka Groundislava’s previous self-titled release was in heavy rotation all summer, so if you haven’t please give it a spin. This guy is one of the next big names in new wave electronic music, a big part of that is that fact that he throws it down in a very big way during is live show. So crucial, when trying to differentiate yourself from the thrones of solo electronic projects hacking away at new beats from the safety of their bedroom. Oh and he’s best friends with Shlohmo.

Groundislava Pregaming The Rapture

Notice how a new artist called “Grounds Saliva”, “Grounds is lava” “Groundislava…some fucking weird name that no one is ever going to get right (kind of like mine), has been getting a lot of heat as if late?

Well when I first heard Groundislava’s recordings, I was like "Just what we need, another synth reliant, electronic project with an 80’s vibe and bird samples." That was until I saw his live set last Saturday…

The classic movie Grease comes to mind when describing what the talented Jasper Patterson is all about. “It’s electrifying!  “(Andriana), you better shape up, cuz you need Groundislava…better shape up, to my heart I must be true”…you get the point.

In a small cafe (Lot 1) for a crowd of artists, musicians, friends and fans, this guy threw out some of the illest synth-tastic beats Los Angeles has heard in a while. This kid is about to take over the world with his energy-infused take on “lofi” music. Best make sure you’re on his side when it happens.

Synthafy my life Groundislava, synthafy my life…

Peter Puzzle Mixtape for Streets Of Beige

Weird a**, ambient shoegaze for your Sunday chillout sesh courtesy of the bass-centric, beat master Peter Puzzle and the UK label, Streets Of Beige. Big ups to my personal faves: a.d.l.r., Anenon, (LA represent) Shlomo, and of course Peter Puzzle.

These experimental, part ambient, bass-focused electronic sounds are super easy to chill out with says the Salad Fork, and what the Salad Fork says, the Salad Fork does. Ya herd…
