Next Tuesday my very first A&R project will debut on Beatport and iTunes. I put it together with the help of Coco Machete main man, Sean Holland. I am currently working on the follow up, 'ATTACK OF THE BLOG.' Check out the MegaTerrorMix I put together so you can get a real taste of all the tracks via Fairtilizer:
According to UrbanDictionary.com, which is as much a source for culture references as Hype Machine is for music browsing, “Blog House” is defined as:
“1. A genre of dance music, influenced by electro and French house music, made with a simple and lo-fi aesthetic sensibility by people all over the world. Hallmarks of the blog house sound include distorted melodies, 8-bit sounds, sliced-up vocals and pop structures. The democratization of music production and distribution technologies has made the creation and dissemination of blog house available to anyone with a computer and the desire to make dance music.
2. Dance music that proliferates through a blog.”
The definition also adds, “Maybe the best thing about blog house is that it's FREE. Fuck yeah!”
The chances of always getting dope, full quality MP3s of these tracks is pretty high. Finding the best out there? Not always easy to do since everyday more Blogs are started and more bedroom producers make their debut. Coco Machete decided that as available and free as this new genre is, there's still a massive audience that has yet to hear the next clones of the robot rock generation.
To those who don't sift through the Blogosphere, your primer awaits.
Coco Machete enlisted the strategic forces of Low Life Inc., the labels' new promotion arm to get down in the trenches and find the most mind-melting, body-rattling, thumpers they could- with a dash of bearded-disco and dream-lectro to flesh it out.
“It Came From The Blog” is drenched in the terror electro of Fukkk Offf, Kill The Noise & Designer Drugs and the club wrecking din of Le Castle Vania, Cobra Krames and NROTB.
Something stirs in the night, in hazy dark rooms, abandoned warehouse raves and rooftop BBQs, it pounds your head in because…It Came From The Blog!
