The Itch! Bitch

Gnarlyface has been mixing his little socks off (Well, not that little, Gnarls is a size 9 and a half. the extra half is very important because it’s halfway to 10 and once you’re in double figures you have MAN sized feet. 9 is still single figures so that’s still the top end of the girls sizes. But you get to round up half sizes, so technically gnarly’s a 10, so he’s all man. macho gnarly. super manly macho gnarly)

Here’s the latest installment of the Gnarlyface Powersaga, the Gnarlyface Powerhour Part 4. Its really chilled out with lots of garage vibes, occasionally drifting into some techno and dubstep beats. To download click the link below:

The Itch! Bitch

So Kahn nailed it, as expected. somehow in the chaos that ensued post-itch i lost my camera. I’ll fire up photo evidence from the night once it returns (on the understanding it returns, but it always returns, its like a wise 7 year old Sony homing pigeon). We’ve got some sweet video footage from the night anyhows. Here’s niceface dropping some new Mia Dora beats.

Boys been crrreeping on some poor unsuspecting itchlets it would seem. gots to keep an eye on him in future. naughty gnarly.

The Itch! Bitch

Anyways, lotta sweet beats out there just now we wanna tell you about. Boddika, one half of uber duo Instra:mental – head honchos at Nonplus, is incapable of doing anything wrong just now. He’s been putting out some great tracks best described by FACT Magazine as techno-not-techno. This one’s my favourite:

Boddika – Syn Chron

MyMy & Emika’s outstanding house track Price Tag has been given a once over by Appleblim & Kononazmuk. Its got a great garage beat. Really nice chilled out track, highly recommended.

Beware of the Itch! Bitch

I’ve avoided doing any posts on Odd Future so far seen as you can’t look anywhere just now without reading something about them. That said, they deserve all the hype they’re getting, its some serious raw talent. This track off the Earl Sweatshirt album is big.

Earl Sweatshirt – epaR ft. Vince Staples

Skrillex. that young pup. Can’t seem to mention his name just now without some heavy debate.

I try not to hate on any type of music as at the end of the day it all comes down to taste.  Skrillex included, though I’ve heard his music described as nothing short of a crime against humanity and in fairness, as a massive dubstep fan, i can see why people feel this way. Though there’s a teenage From First To Last fan inside me that can’t help but have a bit of a soft spot for him. I was a big fan of what he used to be about and I can hear elements of that in what he does now, which is why we went out of our way to revamp a Skrillex track in a way that was more to our tastes. I really like the original of this track, so it was first choice for a remix. We’ve gone all UK Funky over it. Its a party tune, enjoy.

Skrillex – With You, Friends (Mia Dora’s really? Remix)

PUG LIFE

Ok so our party with Kahn was absolutley off the chain, stay tuned for photos videos and shit. Or if you can’t wait a few days til we get our act together, head over to our Facebook.

So, turns our everyone in Glasgow lost their mind last night. I was playing at Club 520 as per… came out to find about 300 odd folk, complete with lads taps aff, on shoulders, jumping about singing I Just Can’t Get Enough. This went on for a good hour or so before the cops got their way and people started to head home. Sorry about the shite sideways video.

In other news, some rude bastard(s) went baws out and set a fire on Great Western Road. Most rapid extinguish ever courtesy of Strathcylde’s finest.

Now down to business. The Undying Ones have put together this gallus track. This is a first from this pair and everythings very hush hush for the time being, but as soon as I hear anything else it’ll be right here. Hold tight for the sickest multi-lingual Scottish hip-hop you’ll hear this year for sure.

Have a good week eveyone!

So that was nothing short of colossal. 800 of you came to the Art School to see Julio Bashmore, Horsepower Productions and Joe Nice last month. Thankfully there’s plenty of photo evidence from the night to help us piece it all together as none of us can remember very much.

….and everyone knows the nights not complete until someone goes crowd surfing (there would even appear to be an Auld Lang Syne going on in the corner?):

You can always rely on DJ Diamond..most notorious for his antics during Girl Units set at Numbers:
