Flying Lotus, Pacewan, Appleblim and Ramadanman

Ok today I've got some stuff of all styles to keep my minions happy.

First up, if you don't know, you need to know.


This song defines "jam". One of the top FlyLo tracks out there off his Cosmogramma album, this showcases his skill at constructing funky psychedelic beats like no one else. Pay attention to how he builds energy throughout the song and caps it off when the trumpet drops.


Next up to hold down the hip hop heads:


Drums are sweet. Hihats are money. Etc.


Finally we need a healthy dose of dubstep flavors,


This track has retarded subs. Hopefully you've got a decent system to listen on and you've set everything up after reading the previous post on speaker placement for best sound quality. Apart from the sub barrage, this track has some nice floating atmospherics and a cool switchup up in the middle. After the break it comes in with some chord stabs and when it finally drops you get treated with more sub blasts on dotted half notes. Some real head-nod action to be had here.

Let me know in the comments if you like, if you don't, if you're just commenting to fish for ad clicks, etc.

  1. Im not a big dubstep fan, so the last one was meh. The hip hop one was pretty good, but the best one by a wide margin (and added to my playlist) is Do the Astral Plane (or Flying Lotus, i dont know which one is the group and which one is the song hahahah)

  8. Always had a tough time getting into Flying Lotus for some reason, but I think that's because I never really gave him a chance. I love when Lotus-connoisseurs show me the quality stuff, because I usually like it as I do this track. The Ramadanman/Appleblim track, however... that's directly up my alley. Had to give that one an instant re-post. Nice post :)

  13. Not really my cup of tea, never enjoyed hip hop nor dubstep, but after listening to all of them I'd have to say the one that was the most enjoyable for me was the third one. I guess it's because I could never understand hip hop. Meh.

  25. I'm not sure that I would categorize the last one as dubstep. I tend to think of dubstep as being darker, more harsh and having more emphasis on the drops.

    I did like the hip-hop one.
