Chuck Inglish – “Freaknik ’96”

Chuck Inglish is back with a hilarious and creative tribute to the ATL-based street parties of yesteryear with “Freaknik ’96,” premiering today on Billboard. Equal parts goofy and groovy, Chuck pays tribute to the likes of Uncle Luke and So So Def in an animated love letter to the massive gatherings and the birth of bass music in the hip hop scene.

The Trevor Kane + Derek King-directed video transports Chuck to the time and place of Freaknik in both cartoon and real life forms, transposing him directly into authentic footage from the event itself. The end product is a tongue-in-cheek, must-see journey into one of the most crucial happenings for ATL hip-hop culture and beyond — just make sure your boss isn’t watching when you click through.

The video also marks the first of a series of video releases tied to his recent album, Everybody’s Big Brother, out now on Sounds Like Fun Records. Freaknik ’96 also serves as precursor to not one, but two additional full-length albums already completed: a collaborative effort with production from Blended Babies called Ev Zepplin and the self-produced Lemon Pepper Season Salt — both dropping in 2016.

Chuck is additionally available for interviews and features – submit an inquiry today to Josh@SubvertAgency.com to get involved.

Buygore announces Miami Music Week pool party at The National on March 20th

Last Miami Music Week saw Borgore throw his first-ever Buygore Pool Party, congregating 1,200 revelers to The National for a sold-out day of face-melting bass and sun-soaked debauchery. The Jägermeister-presented soiree was headlined by a bevy of top-drawer talent including Cedric Gervais, Nervo, Jauz, Deorro and Rain Man. Thanks to the success of the Miami event, the label went on to host another poolside romp during EDC Vegas at Foxtail, featuring performances by imprint staples such as Styles & Complete, Ghastly, Cedek, Bad Royale, and Ditta & Dumont.

Next month, the Buygore family is teaming up with Jägermeister again and heading back to South Beach for another legendary pool party, taking over The National on March 20th. Borgore says, “This year will be crazier than last and filled with surprises. It’s one of my favorite parties to throw each year with our good friends Jägermeister.”

Kronology – Voyager / Forward Motion [Technique Recordings]

Kronology have taken no prisoners in their assault on the scene since joining Technique last year. They’ve taken the big room sound and brought an uncompromising individuality to bear, laying out their template on their huge “Timelapse” EP. So, having made waves, now the LA team are back to deliver the aftershock.

“Voyager” shows Kronology mean business. A gigantic intro made from ominous low pads, sci-fi dialogue and approaching-menace bass sets expectations high, then the drop delivers on them. A scorching laser-shot synth sets the mood in the high-end, backed up by the intense growl of the bassline and the sharp jabs of the drums. The unpredictable shuffling kick and the rising modulations keeps a continual sense of urgency going, making this one that’s bound to keep dancefloors electrified.

“Forward Motion” drops us straight into shadowy murkiness. Kronology move unsettling industrial sounds around the landscape, leaving nothing tangible to hold onto except a sense of impending doom. Then as the drums stride to the forefront, they signal the arrival of a violent array of mid-range stabs and grimy bass timbres. This is late night dark and dirty music taking influences from tech and neuro styles without ever losing that trademark arena-size sound.

This release is where Kronology demonstrate they’re going in hard for 2016. Not only are they proving their consistent ability to make the big room bangers, they’re showing off a talent for twisting other sub-genres to their dancefloor-destroying will. As these tunes drop the year is still young, but these producers are already making their mark on it.

Contra – Liondub Street Series Vol. 14 – Kokoro [Liondub International]

A change in pace from the rougher roads already traversed by Liondub International’s Street Series, the sound of London-based Contra is more akin to a smooth stroll on a city park lane, taking in the flowing scenery in smooth liquid vibrations without losing the grit.

Originally from Bristol, the powerhouse home to Roni Size, Massive Attack, Smith & Mighty, and many others, classic influences like these, LTJ Bukem, Calibre, DJ Marky, and Spectrasoul deeply inform their sound. It has earned them releases on Influenza Media and Inform Records so far, and they make their Street Series debut with the ‘Kokoro EP’ here for Liondub International.

‘Moving Time’ begins the journey, it’s smooth sophistication evident from the first bars as warm bass-lines and keyboard washes flow around dusky vocals. The title tune leans even more towards pastoral melodies, especially in the delicate piano parts that rise from the breakdown into the second half, but it gets roughened by tougher drums to keep the pace. Grabbing ears with its soulful vocal samples and complex arrangement, ‘Days of P’ is led by the deep pulsations of its wide, sub-heavy bass-line to create a sublime effect. Tough hoover bass andjungle drums increase the impact of ‘Like a Ghost’, but there’s no loss to their mastery for fine details and groove. ‘The Light’ returns to subtler territory but retains a harder edge, with ample space in the tune serving to highlight both the spacious ambient pads and the physical heft of the drums and bass.

Contra offer up beautifully crafted productions that open up a new sound for the label and its Street Series. Expect greatness from this new act as they usher in the new year with this superb 5 tracker.
