British producer YOGI turns in this massive, energetic remix of Schoolboy Q’s Hell Of A Night. The original was off the rapper’s album OxyMoron. As for YOGI, he just released his debut EP, Burial, on Skrillex label OWSLA a few weeks ago. Here, he demonstrates his sped up, chopping trap skills, creating an extra filthy specimen out of Hell Of A Night that’s thoroughly dope. A must listen banger off YOGI’s Burial is the Pusha T featuring title track. Tacking it on below.

Burial – Come Down To Us

December 14, 2013

Of course, you likely heard by now about enigmatic, genius producer Burial’s new EP this week. The third track off the hypnotic release is an epic, 13 minute work of art named Come Down To Us. Burial is known for his brilliant talent and ability to create the most amazing soundscapes. He certainly still has it on this ghostly tour de force filled with haunting vocal samples and a knack for storytelling. It’s almost hard to put into words what a stunning, magnificent, mind melting piece this is. It’s breathtakingly beautiful and contains some of the most melodic material we’ve heard from Burial over the years. It’s a masterpiece. Parts of it make me want to go cry in the corner. Latter parts bring me up into cloud nine with jaw dropping catharsis. Amazeballs. I think I’m still going to go cry in the corner. With happiness. Oh, isn’t the world such a wonderful place filled with such lovely people? Sigh. Oh yes, there’s a take away message at the end by someone who’s experienced some hard times in life.

OFFICIAL VID: Lapalux – Without You (ft. Kerry Leatham)

March 7, 2013

There’s still a ton of things I’d love to share, but I’ll leave you with this Lapalux video for now before my next set of frenetic shares. I first featured UK producer Lapalux last week after being blown away by his minimalist, post-dubsteppy production sound. His track Forlorn had deeply reminded me of Burial or Four Tet’s work. Now, he has this video for us for track Without You, featuring Kerry Leatham. It’s an atmopheric, textured, toned down tune that almost sounds like a much toned down James Blake. The bass isn’t that heavy but the beats are hypnotizing. It’s a quiet song, fit for a ghostly late evening. Without You will be on Lapalux’s debut album Nostalchic out on March 26.

What do you get when you pair a talented IDM producer and a fast flowing Busta Rhymes type rapper? Forlorn by UK producer Lapalux featuring Busdriver on vocals is the perfect answer. The shimmery, ambient beats are breathtaking and the rhythmic staccato verses make a fine complement. At times, the vocals provide what could almost be another layer of percussion within the unique track. It’s a track full of surprises, lulls, and breaks, heavily leaning on vocals at some points, then going straight into super textured instrumental soundscapes. Lapalux’s style certainly brings to mind Burial style post-dubstep/nightbus music at times. Just check out his track BETHR and the more witch housey Guuurl below. Lapalux has a debut album coming out on March 25 in the UK titled Nostalchic.

Holy Other’s song Held, the title track off his Tri Angel records EP, is already a gorgeous, dark, atmospheric piece of electronic music. Tim Hecker put his own touches on the piece by remixing it and made it even more meditative. The end result is extra shimmery and post-dubstep glitchy, reminiscent of some of Burial’s textured soundscapes. In particular, the Hecker remix reminds me of Burial’s excellent Night Bus. Listening to the song immediately transports you to a drizzling night filled with blurred streetlights and extra pensive moments. The original, more spacey cut of Held is tacked on below. Both versions are transcendental.
