Rubblebucket – “Sound of Erasing” (The M Machine Remix)

Sounds like… a slow-mo laser fight in space station filled with cherry jello and bits of pineapple that are also power boosters. Oh wait, that voice! It has stopped the fighting and now the martians have dropped their lasers and are battling with asynchronous dance moves instead! Its madness, beautifully groovy madness!

Location: Brooklyn via Space.

Future: Rubblebucket’s new album Survival Sounds is streaming free at NY Times and comes out Monday. A 45+ date tour follows. Do not miss it. Bring your lasers.

LETS DO A SUMMER MIXTAPE with [RAC, Adventure Club, Goldroom, Viceroy, DWNTWN, Ghost Beach, Cry Wolf and Lights & Music]

When I first started the blog feature on Lights & Music last month, this mixtape was the first idea that I put into action.  Wikipedia, in-short describes mixtapes as usually reflecting the musical tastes of its compiler, a conceptual mix of songs linked by a theme or mood tailored to the tape’s intended recipient.  Yeah sure, we’ve all made mixtapes before.  But, what happens when you get a bunch of artists and bloggers to make a mixtape with the intended recipient being you?  Thats what I wanted to find out.  The concept is simple, yet I hadn’t really seen it anywhere else.

Everyone was given two selections.  They could either choose two tracks defining their summer so far in 2012 or one new and one all-time summer favorite.  Sounds simple enough in theory, but narrowing down your favorite jams to fit that criteria was tough.  That said, this was a fun project and I intend on making this a annual event.

Without further ado, please enjoy and share with others. Read more

Passion Pit – Take A Walk (The M Machine Remix)  / First we had the glorious Pecking Duk remix and now this and its not even Christmas.  The M Machine, hailing from the Bay Area have created a straight up slappin mix here.

La Roux – I’m Not Your Toy (Data Remix)  / Not a new tune by any means, but what a chune it is… How this song somehow slipped through the Lights & Music cracks blows my mind.  Without further ado, enjoy.

Dubstep Roundup Vol. 28 – 2.17.2012 [Foxes, Krewella, Zedd, Digitalism and more…]

 

Finally, Dubstep Roundup Vol. 28

Its been some time since I’ve dropped some silly bass on your faces.  The Reason: I’ve been working on projects inside and outside of TBE, so its been difficult to mangage time (video clip at the bottom).  Whats awesome: Brandon and I will have some exciting announcements coming up in the next week or so.  For now: Bury your heads in the bass below.

I’ll see you Nurds on the dark side.
