Keep Rising :: Exploded Drawing Celebrates 7 Years In Style

a1098030544_10

After 7 years of hard work and endless dedication, the Exploded Drawing family is reaping the recognition they rightfully deserve.  2017 has found the crew expanding into the festival circuit, playing the legendary Low End Theory in Los Angeles, bringing the very same Low End Theory to Austin, receiving recognition in the Austin Chronicle and Texas Monthly within weeks of one another, and releasing vinyl and cassettes via the legendary Fat Beats distribution to commemorate 7 years.  Exploded Drawing: “7 Years” Compilation features all of the producers you’ve come to know and love from the crew, an introduction featuring KUTX‘s Art Levy, and it’s all come together on a beautiful full-color gatefold (designed by Michael Scheel) with color vinyl pressings in 2 options.  I am so happy for the crew, and forever honored to be among its ranks.  Here’s to countless more years of continued fun and hopeful success.

Guaranteed Fresh :: Exploded Records Provides Us With JuiceLand Radio

The Exploded Drawing family has done nothing but wonderful things for Austin since appearing on the scene.  The same goes with JuiceLand.  When the two entities combined a few years back to create Exploded Records at JuiceLand, it was a culmination of wonderful that seemed like it would be a peak.  Yet, somehow, the combined efforts has continued to grow and become greater than the sum of its parts, exploring all new realms.  One of these realms has been the online radio/podcast market.  With the constant influx of guests to Exploded Drawing and Exploded Records in-store performances, it’s no wonder that JuiceLand Music was born as a part library, part showcase for the wealth of talent associated with these ventures.  The channel is 19 shows deep, and it’s all quality material.  Do yourself a favor and take a deep dive.

Breakbeat Vérité :: NGHT HCKLRS Release ‘HaHaHaHaHaHaHa!’

For all of the forgettable moments most will attribute to 2016, there were personal highlights I cannot ignore.  Being introduced to NGHT HCKLRS was certainly one of them.  These cats, plain and simple, are making some of the most standout music in Austin, and the release of the EP HaHaHaHaHaHaHaHa! appears to solidify that statement.  Seeing these guys is a must if you get the chance.  They will be rocking Exploded Drawing this upcoming Friday, and I am wholly certain that their star is on the rise.

Family Reunion :: Exploded Drawing SXSW Compilation 2016

a1713684231_10

Every year about this time, the homies at Exploded Drawing decide to show the masses how a super talented collective holds it down.  I always look forward to SXSW time for a small handful of reasons (most having very little to do with the actual event), and this annual compilation is always at the top of that list.  Also, for the fourth time, I got a Chief and TheDoomsdayDevice track included.  Free download.. why don’t you already have it?

Art Official Intelligence :: ‘Niraya’ By Android Genius

Live from Houston comes recent Exploded Drawing performer and Feedback Alliance cohort Android Genius.  I’m a little late on Niraya, but, as they say, better late than never.  If boom-bap hip hop was made by a sentient android, it would be a step in the direction of what Android Genius is doing with his tunes.  Definitely worth your time, and a refreshing approach to Texas hip hop and electronic music composition.  Dig it and dig it good, share it, and go ahead and cop that (it’s $2 for christ sakes).

Bigger Each Year :: Exploded Drawing SXSW Compilation 2015

There are TOO many people on this compilation to list, but trust me, every time that soundfounder and Butcher Bear get together to show the world what Exploded Drawing has in store for the year, it’s a hit.  Throw in A Better Tomorrow handling the sonic polishing, and we’re in it to win it.  I’m especially proud of this one, because I have a track on here from the upcoming instrumental release Slow Burnout, plus a collaboration from Butcher Bear‘s upcoming album with BoomBaptist.  Dig it, share it, and support your local underground movement!
