Samples – Life of the Party [MAL030]

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.

Finest Ego – German / Austrian / Swiss Compilation

 

Finest Ego | German / Austrian / Swiss Compilation Cover Art

A while has passed since our last compilation has been released but just in time for the 2011 holiday season Project: Mooncircle and Finest Ego bring you the already fifth edition of our acclaimed compilation series. Shifting focus towards central Europe, we find the three countries Germany, Austria and Switzerland. Sharing lots of their historical and cultural heritage, this copious collection contains work from producers of a wide range of musical manifestations – all located in the spectrum between traditional sample-based and organic sound to electronic and experimental compositions. Grown up in the nineties with the organic sounds from across the big pond and a long tradition of electronic music in the German speaking world, this compilation showcases the fusion of electronic and classical soulful organic elements in the beat scene. The sound is as diverse as the country and its people, from Spaetzle to Klopse and from HipHop to Techno, on this compilation you can find Boombap from the likes of Brenk & Suff Daddy but also electronic sounds from the likes of Robot Koch and Bit Tuner as well as atmospheric sonical waves from Glenn Astro and Anthony Drawn.
The influences vary from Jazz records, video games, Hip Hop, Drum ‘n’ Bass and Techno. But are there two different camps clashing here? Retro vs future, mountain village vs urban center, winter vs summer…

The compilation includes acts like Chief, Brenk, Dexter, Mono:Massive, Hulk Hodn, Captain Crook, Stroe, Hubert Daviz, Comfort Fit, Robot Koch, Jazzo & Melodiesinfonie, Quendolin Fender, Ju-Ar, Twit One, Suff Daddy, Figub Brazlevic, Szenario, Portformat, Flowtec, D-Fekt & Mr. Beef, Bit-Tuner, Feux, Kalifornia Kurt, B-Ju, Playpad Circus, Flex Fab, Ill-Luzion, Anthony Drawn, Hazeem, Minor Sick, XL The Red One, Glenn Astro, Frederic Robinson, and Willy Sunshine.
