Eyedress Hearing Colors Mixtape

Today, the killa from Manilla, producer, singer and video director Idris Vicuña aka Eyedress, released his debut mixtape Hearing Colors. The 23-year old artist makes fascinating electronic music with worldly influences touching on decades of the past, while using technology to not only tell stories, but give his music a feeling of “now.”

Frequent collaborator, Skint Eastwood's haunting vocals caress digital blips while hi-hats hiss, gaps between sounds reverb and exhale and all the while simulated mandolin riffs pay homage to his South-East Asian roots. 

With inspired visuals and an arsenal of explorative sounds, Eyedress is a producer not to be missed. 

Hearing Colors is a free download via Abeano/XL Recordings.

PREMIERE: CHAPMAN “ICHAP VOL. 1″ PRESENTED BY SAINT

I premiered this fresh mixtape on Mass Appeal yesterday.

Alex Chapman is different. His music is different — different than most of the rap we post.@iChap, as he’s known by his friends on Twitter, hails from New York’s underground fashion-forward-art-crowd-hashtag-internet-celebrity-parties-at-the-Flat-in-Brooklyn scene. He’s a rapper. He’s gay. He’s also white. With pals like female rapper extraordinaire Chippy Nonstop and theYung Klout Gang, Chapman is part of a new genre of trendsetters challenging the music status quo. Of course, in the supermarket of music entertainment, there will always be an aisle reserved for Hatorade, but why hate someone thats just trying to make you smile?

There’s no denying that Chapman’s lolz-inducing lines are as thoughtfully clever as topical as they may be. Adding his own verses to 2 Chainz “Where U Been” building on the hook, “Bought a new crib just to f*** you in,” adding, “Bought a new bed just to tuck you in.” Or on his version of “Chum” he has fun with some melodic wordplay saying, “In my Earl Sweatshirt with the Earl Sweatpants, do you not know who, who the fuck I am, you my JuJu boo, I’m your Killa Cam.”

But Chapman is far from just surface level pun rapper. Whether it’s intentional or not, he’s more making a statement than just putting out a collection of tracks. He’s like the street artist Hanksy, of the music world; from the playfully taunting lyrics to the fact that he’s using recognizable beats to his Internet themed mixtape, complete with iMessage “drops”.

When it comes to Chapman’s actual sound, at times his lyrical style has striking similarities to Mykki Blanco and other times he illicits an angst not so unlike Eminem and The Marshall Mathers LP. But comparisons aside, what’s most notable is he’s developing a style and brand all his own. One we plan to have on repeat.

Mass Appeal is proud to present the album stream of iChap Vol. 1 for your listening pleasure. Presented by Saint, the mixtape includes guest appearances by up-and-comers, Jungle Pussy, Mess Kid, The GTW, Dai Burger and UNIIQUE.

Hartzine <3 Andriana Mixtape for Shuffler.fm

Every single day I’m lucky enough to get to spread the love across the webiverse for Shuffler.fm…and get paid doing it. I recently started a new mixtape series where I ask a different blog each week to create a sweet little mix that represents their taste that I can share on Shuffler’s blog. The best part about this series is I get to nerd out and ask my favorite music sites from around the world to participate. So far Live For The Funk, Tastes Like Caramel, Blogger Harder Faster, and The Swede Beat have all graciously hooked me up with a dope playlist for this series. Today one of my absolute FAVORITE sites, Hartzine created a mix that just made my year.

As most of the internet world knows me as “Dre” when I pretend like I’m an adult, I sign my full name “Andriana.” It’s definitely not a common name, so when Benoit of Hartzine sent over his mix titled “<3 Andriana” you can imagine just how much I blushed. I am just so touched. Thank you so much to Hartzine for continuing to amaze me, and for the wonderful mix and fantastic artwork!

MIXTAPE MONDAYS: Kwesachu Mixtape Vol. 2 (Micachu & The Shapes and Kwes)

Kwesachu Vol. 2 finally dropped last week, and it’s fucking dope. This is the only mix you need right now. I left if up to the artists to describe this project as they say it best, “Kwesachu started in 2008 with the release of the Kwesachu Vol. 1 mixtape: 50 minutes of cassette tape which proved that both artists were a match made in skewed pop heaven, and gave birth to ‘free pop’ – a philosophy of creating popular music that knows no boundaries, shuns no eccentricity and values inventiveness over any kind of rules that have gone before.”

MIXTAPE MONDAYS w/Peaking Lights, Bondax, Jackmaster and Ben UFO, and GITNB’s Dance Like Everyone’s Watching Mix!

I have to admit, I really look forward to my Mondays ever since I started this series. Each week is just crammed to the gill with hours of great curated music. For me mixtapes and playlists (especially those created by some of my favorite artists) have been a fantastic way to discover new music you would have never listened to otherwise.

Today is extra special as I finally took the time to create an extra dope new GITNB mix. Of course I pulled out all the stops and even got Jimmy Morris of Head Underwater to hook me up with some dope artwork. Cheers to the start of a great week.

Peaking LIghts Lucifer Mix

"Recorded in Brooklyn at Gary’s Electric studio over the course of a month, Peaking Lights consider Lucifer a nocturnal version of their sound. It’s slinkier and full of grooves. “To us this record is about play and playfulness, unconditional love, rhythms and pulses, creation and vibration,” says Coyes. Lucifer is also Peaking Lights’ most ambitious release to date in terms of its approach and scope. Through their studio experiments, the duo has managed to link their musical loves—dub, krautrock, analog electronic dance music, sound collages, pop music—all while maintaining cohesive songs. Lucifer was self-produced and engineered by Al Carlson (Yeasayer, Ford & Lopatin, 0PN).”  -via Mexican Summer

STREAM & DOWNLOAD Lucifer HERE.

Peaking LIghts “20mix 12mix ARIES” Mix for International Tapes

"Brimming with modern hip hop and R&B stylings, with a little Bach and light hypnosis to kick things offs. It has no tracklist, but we can assure you that it is ideal Saturday listening. For that matter, it would make fine Sunday-Friday listening as well. Instructions for use: press play and let it ride.” -via Int Tapes

WARM by Ben UFO & Jackmaster for ok-ni

Recorded live at Trouw at the start of this year, the mix is a tribute to that early stage of a night when people are still filtering in and things, slowly but surely, begin to gather momentum, as Ben explains:

“This mix is dedicated to the art of the warm-up set. The Colors night at Trouw in Amsterdam recently organised an event where Jack and I were booked alongside Oneman and Cinnaman, a line-up consisting of specialist DJs who don’t produce playing for the duration of the night.

TRUST Exclusive Mix for i-D Magazine

No tracklist here, just a little over an hour of weird as fuck electronic jamz that range from chilled out and sexy to harshly thrashed 1990s video game electronic sounds plus edits of all kinds of pop and RnB favorites given an acid house vibe. Basically take every song you liked in the late 80s, early 90s, the handful of songs you have heard from TRUST and a lot of 2012 electronic music trends and you have this mix in a nutshell. It’s so fucking odd…but I like it. Especially when they slow that shit down and make it shake at the 43.42 mark.

The 405 Plastic Platform C09: Faws

The elusive Irish producer, Faws made serious waves in 2011 with his EP Antonym, and started 2012 off right by dropping a sick little mixtape for UK outfit The 405. This mix gives some insight into the young artist’s influences, which were unclear besides the obvious Mount Kimbie and Burial similarities. Love that he has Portishead and Dr Dre in there. Makes so much sense. STREAM HERE.

Young Magic  - Maps C A S S E T T E

My favorite act of 2011 and 12, with what is sure to be a top 10 album of the year, Young Magic released “The Maps Mix last week, which is a collection of Young Magic rarities, remixes, demos, field recordings, flips, beats, b-sides from Melt and whatever else they made over the last year that didn’t fit the LP. It’s a home for all the other sounds we’ve been making…a rough beat tape of sketches cut together in a moment. Think of it as our sonic scrapbook.”

bell hooks BBU Mixtape

There’s no denying Mishka has proven to be one of the illest lifestyle outlets in the game. Everything they produce is just top notch. This BBU mixtape is their latest effort showing the music world just how on top of their game they are. I am trying to evolve and stop hating on new rap, and this BBU mixtape is the start of that for me. There is a big Southside Chicago feel to this mixtape, which I dig, and the more I listened the more this sounded reminded me of old school jamze from RJD2 and even Too Short, and at other times it felt like 1978 when funk and soul were beginning to blend into what would soon be called “rap music”. Overall there is this throwback vibe that BBU is able to transport into 2012 unleashing a refreshing update while paying tribute his hip hop roots. Oh and did I mention it’s fucking funny? Rap should always be like this.

Perseus Dazed Digital Mix

This mix is thirty of the most amazing minutes you will hear all year. Perseus is the fucking master at creating a basstastic vibe, transforming all the faves from Justin Timberlake, Robin S., and PM Dawn to Aaliyah and The Source into instant nu-disco groove anthems. This is where emerging music is headed, so get on the French Express and don’t stop dancing until they kick you off the mutherfunking train. This mixtape was instantly one of my favorites of 2012, so since Mixtape Mondays has been extended, I decided to revisit one of the stand outs. Enjoy!

When Saints Go Machine Fail Forever (Nicholas Jaar Remix)

MIXTAPE MONDAY! CONTINUED!

I told you I was going to take Mixtape Mondays into Tuesday, and I wasn’t kidding. This mixtape is so fantastic it needed a day and it’s very own post. This hypersoul mix was created by one of the best places to buy indie music on the web, Boomkat as a way to showcase the tracks they have had on heavy rotation as of late.

I couldn’t be more enthused with their selection. Read their reasons for throwing this mix together below, and peep my favorite track off the mix above, a Nicolas Jaar remix of When Saints Go Machine's “Forever Fail.” Get’s really fucking weird and needed to be revisited. Other faves on this comp include Two Inch Punch, Vondelpark, Jacques Greene and Aluna George. I am obsessed with everything about this mix. You will be too. Stream the entire mix below via Boomkat.

What with Whitney’s untimely passing and the fug of Valentine’s day still lingering, it only seemed right to round up the best R&Bass/Soul-infused electronica from our digital stockpile this week. OK, maybe it’s a sideways take on the chart sound, but nonetheless these guys have definitely got their soul flow on. There’s straight-up vocal aces from Ango, AlunaGeorge and dBridge, beside pitch-shifting, autotuned stunts from o F F Love and Ifan Dafydd, while the likes of Nicolas Jaar, Ifan Dafydd and James Blake serve their subtly warped, blue-eyed perspective on matters of the heart. You also get tracks to make you bump - the frisky Teeth remix of Luomo, Two Inch Punch’s infectious ‘Love You Up’ and Jacques Greene’s plush ‘Flatline’ - and sublime moments like Neon Cloud’s ‘o’ and Shlohmo’s sensitive delicacy ‘Wen Uuu’. Whatever you choose to do with them, be safe kids, and take care of each other, yeah?
