"Fractal Chessboard" by fdecomite

This week's posting was written by my dog. I'd been trying to get him to write one for months, been locking him in my room with a typewriter and hoping something good would come out of it.  Luckily for us, this one makes complete and total sense. Except his intro, his intro is nonsense.

“Woof woof 4224442qfniii  bark bark fuck cats,”

See. Oh well, I’m stupid. Good thing my taste in music isn’t. Let’s just ignore everything that happened above this and have some fun below, huh?

Awesome New Awesomeness from Getter and MSTRKRFT and Rusko and Boys Noize. What, is festival season coming up or something?

 

GETTER - BACK

Man, Getter is the reigning King right now of heavy, interesting bass music. It seems like each week we crown a new King here at BitCandy but that’s only because the kids are fickle. But for real, Getter has got it going on. He is getting better and better. I could go on and on. Got kickass sounds and ideas and it’s heavy as hell. Sure, this ain’t something I’m gonna listen to on my headphones but then again I’m old.

 

MSTRKRFT - LITTLE RED HEN

These Canadian Electro maestros haven’t released anything since 2011. Little Red Hen is hard-hitting head-banging techno, with all their old electro sounds and punk rock attitude. This is vicious and experimental and not meant for virginal ears. So glad to see guys back, fucking shit up with some serious fury.

 

MICHAEL WHITE - IMAGINATION

I wasn’t on board for the emotive vocals and progressive build, but then the song “dropped it” and I couldn’t help but party my ass off. It’s a little bit dubstep, a little bit bass house, a a whole hell of a lot of fun. Next time Michael, maybe cut the vocals… but then again I guess I’d have to check with my wife. She loves vocals. If she likes these, maybe I’m the one who’s wrong. WHO KNOWS! WHO CARES!?

 

KAYZO - CAN'T STOP

Woah. This is so fucking fast. Is this what the world was like when people heard the Ramones for the first time?

 

GETTER - RIP N DIP

TWO Getter songs in one post? What do you guys love Getter or something? Well yeah, he’s got the hottest EP in the world right now. "Rip N Dip" uses roaring Electro guitar and turns people into mindless zombies after eating some tainted hamburgers. This video is beautiful modern art and belongs in a museum of what 2016 looks like. The song ain’t so bad either— Now that’s What I call Dubstep 43.

 

IVY LEVAN - 27 CLUB [RUSKO REMIX]

Yo man, Rusko is BACK. The dude that probably single-handedly is responsible for making dubstep a household name (at least punchline) is INSPIRED. Touring back to back with Caspa and dropping massive remixes like this one. This has got one of the biggest festival baselines I’ve heard going into this season. This song is gonna hit like your ex-husband.

 

BILLY KENNY - WORK ME (JUSTIN JAY REMIX)

If you’ve ever read any post I’ve ever posted for BitCandy you know that I’m not shy to admit that I got mad love for Dirtybird. Sure, this comes off the This Ain’t Bristol comp and not a Dirtybird release, but once your a bird you’re always a bird in my book. Justin Jay transformed Billy Kenny’s already stellar track into a funky disco fusion poolside jammer. This shit is gonna pop off at every pool party in Miami next week, promise you that.

 

AFRIKA BAMBAATAA & THE SOULSONIC FORCE - PLANET ROCK (BOYS NOIZE REMIX)

Planet Rock is an old school funk throwback classic. This is legend dance music right here, and Boys Noize can sense this— adding new needed, updated funk and breaks production, making this song live long into a new era. Thanks for the update, BN. It’s out of character, but I hear you on this track. Thanks for playing it subtle and respectful.

 

DJ DODGER STADIUM - WORK [RIHANNA]

Tbh, I think you have something wrong with you if you don’t like Rihanna and Drake’s new track. It’s everything a pop song should be. It’s catchy, it’s well produced and sung by the most beautiful woman in the entire world. DJ Dodger Stadium throw together a darker, drone version for the kids in LA clubs who are too stuck up to enjoy life. AND GUESS WHAT?! It works too.

 

YOU GOTTI - DOWN IN THE DM (MEAUX GREEN REMIX)

This song is like everything i hate about hiphop. Like this is if Fetty Wap pulled his pants down onstage to reveal he didn’t have a penis and just cried for 90 minutes. At least Meaux Green can turn snapchat that pussy into a certified trap banger. Too bad we couldn’t let this Yo Gotti track die the death in deserves. Oh well!

I AM A ROBOT JUST KIDDING I AM A HUMAN.

About Kurt Kroeber

From deep within the murky depths of the Los Angeles River emerged a creature: 50% raver, 50% comedian, 10% Robotcop. Kurt Kroeber doesn’t own a dog, operates Soundbleed (the world’s only dance party comedy talk show rave), and is down to party with you. Come up some time and say “Hey dude!” But definitely make sure to casually drop the secret Illuminati password.
