Dynamic Range :: d(-_-)b’s ‘Ambient Minimalistic Turntableisms’ Project

a2333716997_10

While digging through Facebook, I came across a post from the homie Brainwavve requesting links to recently released music, which of course resulted in an instant post save from me.  There was quite a bit to choose from in terms of genre, style and so on, but one of the album covers really caught my attention.  This, of course, was d(-_-)b‘s recent release, Ambient Minimalistic Turntableisms.  I gave it a listen, and I was pleasantly surprised by the breakbeats used as a skeleton for a wide range of ambient and lush sounds, leaving an interesting gap that allows the listener to almost exist in the midst of each track.  The songs oscillate between hip-hop and techno-esque sounds, further bridging style and sonic gaps.  If you’re into instrumental, low key and/or experimental sounds, I’d say this one is for you.  Check it out, donate a buck or two if you can, and spread it around for others to experience!

Rising Doom :: Kal.Kal Explores New Ground With ‘Cliff’ Single

artworks-000574900166-nja72x-t500x500

Kal.Kal is back at it again, this time getting heavy in the studio putting together his upcoming project (a Doom Patrol-themed instrumental album).  The first single, Cliff, finds us deep in Kal.Kal‘s signature textured rhythms, but this time the sound has a much heavier and industrial feel to it.  Add to this mixture the guitar-work of Alcoda, and a crazy cover by Ozymandias’ Dream, and you’ve got a lasting first impression for what promises to be a wonderful sonic departure by Kal.Kal.  Definitely leave a comment on this track and share it around so others can bask in this sonic goodness.

Learning To Walk, Again :: Chief and TheDoomsdayDevice’s First Instrumental Album, ‘Slow Burnout’


I have tried many times to create an instrumental album… many concepts have reached different levels of conception, only to die on the vine.  Slow Burnout marks a first step in the right direction… no new ground is being broken here, but I am happy to have notched another first in the Chief and TheDoomsdayDevice belt.
