Dubblestandart – Chrome Optimism (free DL, show tonight!)

Dubblestandart, Subatomic Sound and a gang of remix artists team up on “Chrome Optimism” with legends David Lynch and Lee Scratch Perry (both pictured smoking various dried leaves to the right).  The original Dubblestandart mix is robotic roots reggae with somewhat random interjections from Lynch overtop. The remix action is where this gets serious, with very strong work from Kush Arora, Antiserum & Bakir, Subatomic Sound and more. Check below for a nice video of the Subatomic Sound remix exploring the desert overtop the beat, fits quite well.

The Subatomic Sound and original radio mix are available for free download via the player below thanks to Emch & Subatomic Sound. If you’re in the Bay Area, both Dubblestandard and Subatomic Sound are headlining the weekly Dub Mission down at Elbo Room, so get yourself down there.

Review: KiloWatts – The Right Words EP (KW013)

Sometimes you get broadsided by surprise when listening to new music, and this was definitely the case with the latest EP from KiloWatts out of Philadelphia (Soundcloud, Facebook). The five-track release spans genres with ease and tightrope walks between complexity and danceability to great effect.  BPM, style, beat structure and nearly every other aspect of music vary throughout, the constant is extremely high quality production and an appreciation for melody rarely found in dance music. Personal highlights are first and foremost the 7 minute long voyage in sound “Evolving Revolving Door“, the stuttery, blissful opener “Deliriously” that reminds me of a higher quality Royksopp, and the driving “Black Ink“. This one’s self-released via bandcamp, check the player below for samples and a link to pick this up. Highest recommendation.
