Event • Flying Lotus, Benga, & Lazer Sword @ S.A.T., Montreal

Flying Lotus, Benga, and Lazer Sword @ S.A.T., Montreal, March 25th 2010

March the 25th was to be a big night for me in Montreal. Flying Lotus was set to do a show for the Neon + High Food Festival, at a time of garnering massive worldwide attention for his forthcoming album on the Warp label, called Cosmogramma. The Californian whose music has traces of hip hop, soul, and electronica always strives to break new ground with his productions. In a recent interview with Joe Muggs for Resident Advisor, he was asked if it was “a deliberate decision for [him] to branch out and take in extra influences from other genres in the new album”. He explains it as a natural process, saying “it’s just living and learning more, diving deeper into the imagination”. He feels compelled, with all the success he’s had so far, to “take it further and dive further into the ideas that [he’s] had.” In the same interview, FlyLo hinted towards including more of his music in his live shows than in the past. His decision is attributed with his new album taking off and “people proving so open to all this shit”.

New • Joker – “Tron”

The unique style of dubstep tracks like the latest from Joker called “Tron”, is what some are calling  ‘purple wow’, a “colourful synth-led melodic style within dubstep”, as quoted by Multiverve on their SoundCloud page. Multiverve is a Bristol, UK based bigtime label running a number of sub-labels including Tectonic, ‘Earwax , Subtext, Kapsize, Caravan, and Vertical Sound. Artists include Pinch, 2562, and Joker.

A number of Joker’s tracks have a beautiful blend of the Classic West Coast Rap influence and the more recent UK Dubstep influence. This music, being referred to by Joker and others in his circle, as ‘purple wow’, can easily get the remaining hip hop heads, those that are still straggling behind,  to finally cross over and appreciate what dubstep is doing. It’s good stuff! Listen and enjoy these few monster tracks that I’ve posted from Joker, including the most recent “Tron”.
