Mike Slott - "Flunky + Lucky 9Teen"
Beat music has most certainly arrived as a widely recognized and respected form of musical art. In a time where just about any modern computer has the ability to become a fully functioning recording studio, aspiring hip hop inflected electronic composers are coming out of the woodwork all over the world; sans vocals.
Mike Slott is at the top of the heap.
Theres just something indescribably unique about the glitching, careening caterwaul of sound collage and slinky rhythmic propulsion that his production unveils. This music is equally suited for quiet reflecting with headphones or volume cranking on a scenic drive. I particularly love his unique use, and combination of synthesizers and chirpy, melodic samples.
In short, I listen to this alot, and I think you should try it out.
Sorry for the lull in every bunny activity. I am now moved into my new apartment in Boulder, Colorado and have a renewed enthusiasm for musical pursuits. Stay tuned. I really do mean it this time =]
