Kursa has been a big up and coming name in my book, his blended productions based around Drum & Bass have been an absolute delight to indulge on. Feels like it has been some time since he has given away a free track, so today I bring you an incredible glitched out piece of art sampling the ever famous Björk. The kick and snare continue the same throughout this, but the progression of the deep bass and vocals is where the true prize of this song lie. Just kick back and let the waves take you away.

Drum & Bass, Glitch | Upscale Recordings – The Collective EP (Ft. Evoke, Frequent, Masq, Audeka, Paurini, & Spectric)
Posted by Mach on December 1, 2013
Damn, the sub-label of Adapted Records, Upscale Recordings with the goal of sharing strictly Neuro-Hop (Blend of Glitch-Hop and Neuro-Funk AKA Drum & Bass), drops this dirty EP of some of the top up and comers in the newly rising twisted genre. The EP kicks off with an original from Evoke. Carrying the title of the EP, “The Collective” thumps in smoothly, only to progress into that deliciously glitched out funk. Next, Spectric remixes Evoke’s original, adding a few more layers to the mix of the glitch to take you on deep stroll of bass. A commoner on FNT with his Neuro/Trap blends, Masq teams up with Frequent. Their collaboration “Firescape” starts out with a calm, slightly glitchy melodic euphoria, leaving you bumping out at a deep multi-bass layered drop. A larger name and personal favorite of Neuro-hop, come Audeka with a funky remix of Dino Safari’s Breakspeed. This remix has to be my favorite on the EP, I love how deep the bass on this track is and how it maintains the funk with the chill throughout it. Something that KOAN Sound and Asa introduced to the majority of the population on their most recent collaboration EP. Last, but certainly not least, Paurini introduces himself with a chilling original, “Lumberjack”. Paurini is a new name for me, and after hearing this original, I’m blown away. I suspect this is just the beginning of his epic Neuro journey. Neuro-Hop is a genre on the rise, while Dubstep introduces new artists by the minute and becomes more and more repetitive by the minute. “The Collective” EP is a must have, and count on Upscale recordings to introduce countless more great tracks in the future.

Although funk is not usually a genre I write about, I couldn’t resist posting this Psymbionic remix of “Do You Feel Like We Do” by legend Peter Frampton. I used to love this song as a kid, and always heard my mother playing it. Psymbionic keeps the talkbox effects in tact, while working some funky vibes into this track. Psymbionic says that Peter Frampton himself heard the remix and loved his rework. If you’re lovin’ it too, its free to download!

Caliber Music has had a few quality releases now in addition to Kursa’s new “SDBN” EP. Disprove shows off his funky bass skills, taking you on a wild ride. His style makes me think of older KOAN Sound tracks, with a heavy bass and a synth that sounds like a heavily plucked guitar. This remix is set to release with a remix from Spwee on August 24th.

Sev and I have been watching Kursa closely this year. He has been uploading some the dirtiest previews to his Soundcloud for months now and finally we get to share a release with everyone. Listening to the preview of “SDBN” did it no justice, Kursa set this sweet baby up to rock your world through a full play only. The track opens strong, taking that Neuro bass straight through your ears to the pleasure center of your brain. “Just A Glitch” is a funky Glitch-Hop/Neuro blended track, exercising its name to the fullest degree. This has to be my favorite track on this two track behemoth of an EP. The second drop just owns face in terms of glitch tracks, there just isn’t any track that comes to mind that could trump this tune. Kursa’s “SDBN” EP is out now through Caliber Music.

Haywyre’s single “Synergy” was released today to Monstercat and I was given the pleasure of posting it for all of your ears. This glitch track, the eighth installment of Haywyre’s “A Song Per Week” project, is precisely crafted and an intriguing listen. Starting off with some of Haywyre’s impressive piano skills, it then takes a sudden turn into exciting glitch hop. Both the first minute of calming piano and remaining three minutes of glitchy bass are fantastic.

Haywyre just kicked off his Song Per Week Project and so far so… awesome! I have been saying it for over a year now, Haywyre is one of the most underrated Glitch-hop producers out there. His skills in composition and production surpass most around him, leaving you absolutely in love with almost everything he puts out. This remix of “Eye of the Tiger” is unlike anything you will hear.
