DrewsThatDude is a multi-platinum, Grammy nominated, producer. He’s probably also one of the realest guys you’ll ever meet. I recently had the chance to catch up with him. We talked about the tweet heard round the world, his first recording related job, major influences and a hell of a lot more. Lifetime’s about to write a screenplay to this interview. Check it below:
Pacific Shore is an audiovisual enterprise from Stanley Bloom and Mike Ro Wave. Born in 2012 after a Californian road trip, the Parisian duo released their self-titled album. We supported them since day one, so when their second “Beyond The Mist” album dropped last year, we were more than happy to premiere the track “Street Confusion“. Their sophomore album and short film tells a modern epic tale. Set on the enchanting island of Madeira, through the eyes and voice of Sarah Linhares.
Fast Forward to the present day, it is almost time for Pacific Shore to release their third EP entitled “No Distance Between Us“. Once more their soulful jazzy sound finds a good home on French imprint Cosmonostro and sees it’s release April 6th. Again it’s an honor for us to premiere the title track of this release and we urge you to place your pre-orders now.
As our ‘Werk Space’ adventures unfold, we are having more and more fun every time. Now peep 22-year-old AJ Beats, who represents the city Enschede.
AJ came down from to the Red Bull Studios Amsterdam to work on a serious Funk banger. He started out about 4 years ago producing Hip-Hop beats, but surely evolved his sound more towards Funk-laced beats. This guy is no stranger to drumming. AJ Beats used to have a drum set with 2 snare drums in his room and you hear that in the way he programs his drums.
Let us give you the update on JR & PH7. The German production duo, known for their hard knocking boom bap Hip-Hop beats, join forces with Sacramento emcee Chuuwee. The collaborative album “The South Sac Mack” is the result.
The album is clearly dedicated to the 916 and a handful of tracks are even named after neighborhoods throughout Sactown. Chuuwee gives the listener a first-person narrative and makes you experience the capital city of California in a way you might have never imagined. On the production side JR & PH7 keep it really sunny and fresh by using lots of 70′s and 80′s samples.
Clearly the collaboration between these guy was very organic and this one particular track featuring Blu stood out immediately. So I think it’s only right we add “DueYuu” to this post and tell you to head over to iTunes to check out the rest.
It’s hard to ignore a force of nature like Flako. For many years the German Chilean, who now resides in London, has amazed us with genre transcending stuff. On his latest “Natureboy” album, which released earlier today, he stuns us once more.
Such intriguing sounds, mesmorizing harmonies and collaborational partners such as Miguel Atwood-Ferguson and his alter ego Dirg Gerner. With each music project it seems Flako grows and develops himself so much, maturing into an inhuman being perhaps. He no longer makes music, he has become a storyteller of magical tales from the the beyond.
On our last radio show we played “The Odd Beautiful”, but there are so many gems on Natureboy really. Honorable mentions go to “Spice Melange”, “Twelve O’Clock Shadow”, “Lyrebird” and “With Me Now”. You’d be a fool not to get this album, but just for those in doubt…get this on iTunes now!
The first and main song entitled “Something Else” features Abraham Blue from Antwerp and is on sum next level niceness. Straight vibin’ to this all the way to the bank and back. I guess we should feel lucky this weekend, since Workers are giving away this EP as a free download. You bet this just made our weekend fellas!
Keep your eyes on on Workers and watch out for Abraham Blue, because I’ve heard he is getting ready to drop something hot & heavy on a pretty big label.
Now we at Moovmnt have never been into one genre, so at times you will hear some Trap-inspired music on here. Rest assure that when we introduce you to a guy like Gravez, we do it due to the fact this person has been smashin’ it lately!
We have been keeping an eye on this producer out of Atlanta for a minute and his latest “Sole” EP is on sum next sh*t. For those unaware, Gravez has been signed with HW&W and we are hoping a full album is in the works. Just get a load of the track “Red Lotus” with 16-year-old producer Oshi from London, who has been making equally as much noise. Another fine piece of music is the song “All Yours” featuring another Brit, who goes by the name of OZZIE.
If you ask me the EP contains four dope tracks, so if Gravez ever decides to put these up for sale you will want to cop.
The sensational group known as Kirkis is headed by bassist slash producer slash writer slash painter Matthew Kirkis. Good news…the band out of Melbourne uploaded some brand new material to their Soundcloud page entitled “Hypno“.
Such astounding and hypnotizing melodies lurk hidden inside these three minutes of wonderful. This perplex array of funkiness takes us on a psychedelic ride into a far galaxy, yet to be discovered by mankind.
I remember Kirkis was supposed to release his “Liverbleach” album on Eglo Records last year, but I think the release has been postponed. Still looking forward to hearing new material and who knows we might even be able to catch a performance next year.
