A few days back Brainfeeder member Mono/Poly released his debut album “Paramatma“ on Tasteful Licks. Finally, cause we have been waiting for this since Front2Blaq’ “Beatscientist Busy VS Mono/Poly Mix“ . The album is a mix of experimental beats, dub-step, and astral soundscapes. I will probably put this right behind Flying Lotus “Cosmogramma” in my playlist.
The Paramatma USB Card contains the full album as 320kps MP3s, artist interviews, exclusive photos and artwork, unreleased tracks, remixes, and some other neat stuff. Available on iTunes now.
Over a week ago we had the honor of playing with B.Bravo and TOKiMONSTA at the BCKWLD! event in Amsterdam. To give Amsterdam a small taste of what they’ve been missing out on in London, we intvited Red Bull Radio to record both their sets and we’re happy to share them with you. We also shot some nice video footage and asked both Cali residents about their RBMA adventures. Big shout out to Joao Costa for the camera work and editing.
Ya’ll know about TOKiMONSTA already, but in case you haven’t check out her live-set.
Buddy Bravo played a funked up set going from G-Funk to Dubstep. Check it out below..
In case you haven’t heard of Mixcloud before…go and vist their amazing website! This is the new place to upload and check out mixes and thanks to this great widget it’s very blog-friendly. I know this is the future of uploading mixes not only for blogs like us, but also for DJ’s worldwide. Be sure to add Moovmnt to your favorites and keep an eye out for fresh mixes. We just uploaded the “Cali Love” mix from last month and will be adding more mixes later this month! More info and download link can be found HERE…
Gent’s very own DJ Azer was so nice to bless us with a dope mix he recorded recently. Naturally we loved the Moovmnt mix and so we decided to host it for ya’ll. The mix will also be played on the Laid Back show on FM Brussel so peep that. Big shout out to all our Belgian buddies who are holdin’ it down..oh and click continue reading for the tracklist!
It took ages, or so it seemed, but finally all the audio was gathered and we asked JayHats to mix everything down so it sounds just right. No crappy sound, although please keep in mind that the beats you heard live at the battle may sound a bit differently on thes compilation. If you truly want to relive the moment I suggest you play these beats in a residential area, preferably as loud as possible. For those who weren’t at the Beat Battle at the Rooms of Red Bull…ya’ll missed a CLASSIC! Either way we asked all contestants to donate one beat so we could put together this compilation album.
We called it “The Afterthought” because we thought it necessary to look back on what the f*ck happened that night. Since we know a little extra is always welcome, we added some bonus beats from the number 1 (Hayzee), number 2 (StatikMusic) and number 3 (J’83). And of course made available for free download!
Many thanks to all the beat makers for their beats. Johanna from Apple Juice Break for doing the artwork and JayHats for being the coolest motherfucker out there! This whole event was brought to you by ‘A Moovmnt with Nalden’ so don’t forget to thank Mr. Nalden too. After the jump I put this ill picture Arenda de Hoop shot during the battle and you can find the tracklist in there too…hella nice!
When Front2Blaq hit us up with this dope “Featuremysoul” mix, we decided to connect with our Swedish homegirl Johanna from Apple Juice Break to do a European collabo release. She was so nice to do the artwork on this one! Now sit back, relax and enjoy. Oh and also check peep 92bpm for another guest mix from Front2Blaq.
To celebrate and promote the fact we’re organizing the Beat Battle at the Rooms of Red Bull (together with Nalden), we decided to ask djbroadcast if we could do a radioshow. A two hour Beat Special is what we decided to bless your ears with and you’re in for a special treat. Big man I.N.T (La Melodia) is going to be playing together with Deluge and MRP and me will be mixing together the other hour. Be sure to tune in to RBMA Radio from 18:00 till 20:00 hours (GMT+1).
Keep your eyes open for more info on the Beat Battle at the Rooms of Red Bull! The event will take place August 8th somewhere in the Red Light District. More next week..
One of our favorite albums out now is Jneiro Jarel‘s “Three Piece Puzzle” on Kindred Spirits. Mad beats, mad rhymes…mad creative music!
