»Much like a fine wine, the newest EP from French producer CloZee gets better with time; each listen unveils one more layer in her deliberate and memorable productions. « The Poetic Assassin » is five tracks which are simultaneously fresh yet nostalgic, providing what could be a stunning soundtrack to a movie which has not yet been made. Chloé Herry showcases her myriad of musical talents at every turn, from live strings and keys to intricate drum programming and glitched out percussion. The progression through the album could be likened to the ebb and flow of the tides, as stirring melodies fluidly give way to captivating basslines before returning into familiar emotive territory. »

\\\ KEEP UPDATED, A REALLY GOOD NEWS COMING SOON ON THOSE PAGES ///
Turnsteak : in the making
For those who missed it, Ben Samples has released his latest EP on MalLabel Music.
Ben Samples, well respected badman in the glitch hop arena, comes correct with a brand new batch of amazing, original material with his first full release from MalLabel Music, the deftly titled Life of the Party EP, four choice tunes ready to permeate dance floors worldwide Feb. 28th.
The EP comprises a grip of spry, chunky grooves packaged magnificently into some incredible bass bin knocking jams. Opening up the EP is Capture the Flag, a beastly melody stuffed with heroic, buzzing analog bass lines grinding aside stoutly hip hop breaks. Second is a veritable attention grabber entitled Bred 2 Party, endowed with ripping, crunchily distorted leads and big beats sure to set a party in motion quickly. Song number three, Onyx, is a gutsy, funky track full of thickly laden warm fuzz tones and a slapping rhythm. Finally, closing out the EP is the darkest of the quartet. Basscraft chugs and lurches with a lumbering gate, spouting intriguing sound design audio bits and an eerie, superbly supernatural vibe.
The Life of the Party EP is a certified body mover, a gem of a release that continues MalLabel’s already sterling, diverse 2012 schedule, and it’s a demonstration of one of glitch hop’s supreme talents.

L’EVENT FACEBOOK A FAIRE TOURNER EN MASSE :
« Marseille’s glitch hop duet MC2 comes up this january with a wonder of an EP. Adding some dubstep in their glitch, Miosine and Ckel yet stick to their very own style : somewhere between yesterday’s electro funk, today’s bassmusic and tomorrow stuff. Beat Em up has all it takes to make a great track : classic synthlines, surprise at every drop, this EP is as eficient as beautiful.
Title track is an epic dubstep banger, based on a great melody supported by fat distorted basslines and surrounded by glitchy sounds and arps. Delightful. Feel Roll In is a drumstep glitch hop tribute to whom you know. As weird as it might seem, it does exactly what it says on the tin, while rockin any Phil Collins hater at his own surprise.
Asfor Computer Slave it s another glitch hop banger : bad bass, beautiful pads, nervous cuts, and another mad melody on second drop. It’s all about power and surprise.
Also watch the freebie that comes with the EP as this huge mash up of Infectious Groove classic Violent and Funky will please all 90s lovers. »
