Brooklyn / Berlin producer Machinedrum (who also happens to be 1/2 of Hotflush’s Sepalcure) is responsible for one of our favorite records of the year so far, Room(s) on Planet Mu. His remix of Scuba’s DJ-Kicks exclusive track “M.A.R.S.” exemplifies a lot of what we love about that album: breakneck drum programming, syncopated keyboard stabs, and swirling atmospheric textures. DJ-Kicks is out this week, and we’re pretty thrilled with the reviews so far.
After setting the UK bass scene on fire with the ubiquitous track “Footcrab” on Loefah’s Swamp 81 label, producer Addison Groove has been closely watched by in-the-know fans of forward-thinking electronic music. The new track “An We Drop,” excluisve to Hotflush boss Scuba’s DJ-Kicks diverges slightly from the overt footwork influence of early releases, but still packs plenty of dancefloor thump. “For me, ‘An We Drop’ is one of the key tracks [on the mix],” Scuba explains. “It’s a fusion of two things, that urban, UK kind of sound, and something more techno. It sums up what the mix and my music is about.”
