Image: 1591558 Fun, Unexpected & Limited Edition release from producer Damu The
Fudgemunk, featuring fellow Washingtonian, MC Flex Mathews. Live

pocket recorder. Live presents the listener with the rare opportunity to be
a “fly on the wall” in Damu’s DC studio. Press play and travel back to
October 17th, 2011 as Damu plays live and unheard beats straight out of his
sampler, while Flex Mathews kicks freestyle raps. In between freestyles,
Damu can be heard loading beats from his 1.4MB floppy disks, while he
and Flex crack jokes and talk shop. With or without purchase, this entire
release is available for free download on www.soundcloud.com/redef along
with bonus audio & video footage.

Image: 1585705 FRICTION’S REMIX OF THE WEEK – BBC RADIO 1

One of the most memorable releases in Grid Recording’s illustrious back catalogue, Mutated Forms’ Wastegash has become an anthem – laying waste to dancefloors with its unique drumstep beat.

Now one of the tunes that really helped put Mutated Forms on the map gets two very different but equally high quality remixes from D&B maestros The Upbeats and Dubstep don Subzee D.

Wastegash (The Upbeats Remix). Fresh from the release of their latest album, Primitive Technique, The Upbeats put their own industrial spin on a Grid classic. Featuring reworked drums, abrasive synths and a head rocking beat, The Upbeat’s remix amplifies all the attitude of the original. Premiered on BBC Radio 1 by Rockwell, and then made Frictions ‘Remix of the Week’ a few days later this one has already had huge support on Radio and on the underground.

Wastegash (Subzee-D Remix) – After clocking up over 700,000 views on UKF Dubstep and working with the likes of Hench and Sin City, Birmingham-based Subzee-D lends his skills to the final remix of Wastegash. Featuring claps soaked in reverb and a catchy edit of the main theme – Subzee D’s Wastegash Remix is already smashing dancefloors. Plays from Skream & Benga, Caspa and many more…

Posted in Features, Magazine | Comments Off on Staff Charts 2007

It’s no big secret that 2007 was another shocker for our beloved industry. You probably heard about it in the news. Artists were so broke they had to start to work at McDonalds. Record labels went out of business. Distribution companies had to close their doors. And almost every music industry jibb-jabb complained about disastrous records sales, the fucking internet and all these god damned kids who don’t want to spend their money for music anymore.

But you know what? That’s only one side of the coin. The other truth is that 2007 was a freaking great year for new refreshing music. One more reason to ask around again what Groove Attack‘s employees have been listening to during the past twelve months.

On this occasion the entire Groove Attack family would like to wish everybody a Happy New Year. Enjoy your holidays. And buy more records in 2008 …

Tuesday, October 24th, 2017 | Posted in Products | Comments Off on Third Root – Libertad (BF RSD)

Image: 1615583 Third Root is a Central Texas hip-hop collaborative that focuses on Black and Brown overlapping culture and identity.

Cervantes is a producer/MC/Ph.D. who teaches at the University of Texas at San Antonio & DJCG is a world-renowned DJ, musicologist, designer & Jazztronica! Peddler.
Their latest and well received album, Libertad , produced entirely by Texas music icon and Grammy Award winner Adrian “AQ” Quesada (Grupo Fantasma, Brownout, Echocentrics, Spanish Gold), re?ects today’s current mobilization among Black and Brown communities in the face of debilitating cycles of police brutality, ?awed education systems, privately owned prisons and detainment centers, corporately owned politicians, and racist judicial systems.
Through Easy Lee and MexStep’s back and forth Black Chicano intellectual ?ow, DJCG’s insight and dynamic turntablism, and AQ’s AfroLatino psychedelic funk-infused beats, the album delivers a mix of social justice and jam session with each song designed to raise questions, incite discussion, and promote healing, growth, and liberation. Libertad is a powerful body of work that documents and speaks u pon the times that we are living in

Tall Black Guy – Let’s Take A Trip (Coloured Vinyl)
Wednesday, October 19th, 2016 | Posted in Products | Comments Off on Tall Black Guy – Let’s Take A Trip (Coloured Vinyl)

Image: 1607058 ‘This is a journey into sound…,’ These familiar words, accompanied by the rumble of a distant train, signal the opening of ‘Let’s Take A Trip’, the sophomore album from Terrel Wallace aka Tall Black Guy. Since 2013’s ‘8 Miles To Moenart’ TBG has cemented his position as a standard bearer for the current hip-hop / beats scene. Born in Detroit and now residing in the UK, Wallace’s signature style of incredibly clever sample flips and deft production chops has won fans across the globe including Gilles Peterson, Lefto, Jazzy Jeff and House Shoes.

Since his debut release in 2011 (a daring and addictive flip of Fela Kuti), TBG has become revered for his unique take on soulful hip-hop production. The swing of the drums, the textures of the instrumentation as well as a fearlessness in taking on the classics (his Soundcloud page includes flips and chops of tracks from James Brown, De La Soul and Michael Jackson) have marked him out from the crowd. One of the best-kept secrets in the scene, his singular talent is now beginning to get the recognition it deserves. In the last 12 months he has remixed Little Dragon and been invited to take part in Jazzy Jeff’s Playlist Retreat alongside the likes of Eric Lau, James Poyser, Ali Shaheed Muhammed, Questlove and countless others.

For this album Wallace had a simple inspiration: ‘This album is all about taking a journey. As simple as that. Be it physical, emotional or spiritual. It’s asking and answering personal questions from myself within some of the tracks and also touching on social issues i.e. racism, inequality and privilege…that have been at the forefront of my mind over last three years.’ Sonically there is also a shift: ‘Jazz has definitely been more of an influence in this project, as I have been really inspired by so many up and coming musicians who I’ve been blessed to connect with’. Some of these musicians, including Kenny Keys, Miles Bonny, Diggs Duke and Dee Jackson feature on the project as well as regular collaborators Ozay Moore and Mario Sweet and fellow Playlist alumni Daniel Crawford and Masego. But this is one man’s vision, and for Tall Black Guy this trip is just the beginning…,.

19. The New Sound of The Venezuelan Gozadera

Los Amigos Invisibles (The Invisible Friends) have created the ultimate party album. Surprising segues — one after another — join non-stop grooves. Like having an incredible DJ at your house working for the mere price of a CD (or Cassette)… it flows and swings and never stops… one song/groove leads right into the next, no waiting. It feels like being smacked upside the head in a delicious way.

The New Sound of the Venezuelan Gozadera is a journey deep into the pants of rhythm. (We won’t even mention the old sound of the Venezuelan Gozadera). Party music hasn’t sounded this chic since Chic. “The Gozadera, more than a musical style, is a concept allowing us to use whatever music we enjoy and mix it up,” says guitarist Jose Luis Pardo. “Like boogaloo, salsa, bossa nova, funk, disco, house, techno, jungle, merengue, New Wave, cha-cha-cha, mambo, and of course Acid Jazz.” And who better to pull this off than producer Andres Levin (Aterciopelados, Chaka Khan, La Portuaria, La Secta, El Gran Silencio, David Byrne, Arto Lindsay, and many more) along with engineer Fernando Aponte (Masters at Work, Ryuichi Sakamoto, Deee-Lite, Towa Tei)?

This, their second album, finds the young Venezuelans stepping out from under the shadow of the Rock en Español moniker and giving it a much needed face-lift. “We are a rock band that does not just play just rock music,” says singer Jose Briceño. The 19 tracks on the album combine keyboard driven dance-rock with elements of Latin music worked in. Whether it’s the funked out bliss of “Sexy,” the mambo lounge of “Mango Cool,” or the trip-hop ecstasy of “Otra Vez” (on which Arto Lindsay contributes a bit of distorted 12-string electric guitar), Los Amigos Invisibles have created the perfect party album. Their lyrics tell stories inspired by real-life experiences of love (sex), relationships (sex), and more often then not, the taboos that accompany each (sleazy sex).

Formed in 1991 as part of Caracas’ mobile party scene, the six members of Los Amigos Invisibles quickly developed their unique sound by blending all styles of Latin music with modern beats. Their influences are vast, incorporating the space-age sounds of Esquivel, the whacked-out funk of Parliament, and the beat-friendly Brand New Heavies and Jamiroquai. “We began making music influenced by the development of the acid-jazz scene and the dance music coming out of London,” says Jose Luis, “but when it came down to playing it, we realized that our culture and environment kept creeping into our music. The tunes that are played over the radio at the corner shop or that we whistle along with from the bodega are songs that interest us… that music is part of our people and that makes it part of us. All we want to do is have fun and make fun of it all at the same time.” Their first album, A Typical & Autoctonal Venezuelan Dance Band, was released in 1996 and received Best Band, Record of the Year and Best Guitarist awards in the Venezuelan Rock Awards.

The Seshen – Flames & Figures (Coloured LP+MP3)
Friday, September 2nd, 2016 | Posted in Products | Comments Off on The Seshen – Flames & Figures (Coloured LP+MP3)

Image: 1605876 ‘Flames & Figures’ is the second full-length album from The Seshen, whose forward-thinking sound combines synthesizers, drum machines, live percussion and entrancing harmonies for an unmistakable fusion of R&B, synth-pop and electronic music. The long player sees the band on the cusp of a new era, two years in the making, the album marks an evolution in The Seshen’s unique sound.

Full of bright synth swells, infectious bass lines and thumping 808 beats, their music is a counterpoint to lead singer Lalin St. Juste’s lyrical stream of consciousness, ‘Flames & Figures’ explores themes of femininity, power, illusion and loss as she draws on both her personal experiences and the world of her imagination.

The San Francisco Bay Area-based seven-piece are led by Lalin St. Juste and bassist/producer Akiyoshi Ehara. The duo is joined by five remarkable bandmates to create their multidimensional music: vocalist Kasha Rockland, drummer Chris Thalmann, keyboard/synth player Mahesh Rao, percussionist Mirza Kopelman, and sampler Kumar Butler. Through their much-talked-about live shows, and three releases to date (2012’s self-released, eponymous debut LP, and the ‘Unravel’ and ‘Unravel Remixes’ EPs on Tru Thoughts), their distinctive music has gained support from the likes of Lauren Laverne, Steve Lamacq, Don Letts and Tom Ravenscroft (BBC 6Music), Jason Bentley (KCRW/NPR), OkayPlayer, Earmilk, The Line of Best Fit and Clash.

“Bay Area soul-pop alchemists” – THE FADER
“Brilliant” – LAUREN LAVERNE
“Hypnotic and untamed” – LINE OF BEST FIT
“There’s something magic when a band can make the experimental make total sense” – AFROPUNK
