Kingdom- That Mystic EP Yo! Grab Kingdom's 'That Mystic' EP, released on L-vis and Bok Bok's Night Slugs and digitally on A-Trak and Nick Catchdub's Fool's Gold Records, labels that continue to produce some of the freshest artists around. Kingdom is a dj/remixer/producer originally from right outside of Boston, where he grew up as a punk rock kid, then experimented in electronic bands and listened to jungle and house in his high school years. Residing in Brooklyn, NY for the past ten years, it's no wonder that his sound is influenced by r&b and hip hop as well (sampling Beyonce and Cassie below).

Articles: New Vocabulary Throughout a class of genres and micro-genres, there seems to be a new musical vocabulary emerging, one centered around the way vocals are being manipulated to create moods and atmospheres defined by their amorphous, often spectral nature. Ghost voices. It's something like what happened in the film Inception, the way music could be heard through layers of dreams. Teams vs Star Slinger – Punch Drunk Love If someone was to tell me that I am the new J Dilla, I would probably make them my friend for the rest of my life. Then, in some gross, vain music ritual, I'd have them repeat it to me every day. This, surely, is what Star Slinger must feel.

Witch house (music genre) Witch house is an occult-themed dark electronic music genre and visual aesthetic that emerged in the late 2000s. The music is heavily influenced by chopped and screwed hip-hop, dark ambient soundscapes, industrial and noise experimentation, and features use of synthesizers, drum machines, obscure samples, droning repetition and heavily altered, ethereal, indiscernible vocals. The witch house visual aesthetic includes occult, witchcraft, shamanism and horror-inspired artworks, collages and photographs as well as significant use of typographic elements such as Unicode symbols.[1][2] Many works by witch house visual artists incorporate themes from 60s, 70s and 80s cult and obscure horror movies,[3] the television series Twin Peaks,[4] and mainstream pop culture celebrities. Many artists in the genre have released slowed-down remixes of pop and rap songs,[17] or long mixes of different songs that have been slowed down significantly.

Album Reviews: Egyptrixx: Bible Eyes The reputation of David Psutka's Egyptrixx among beat music cognoscenti was quickly cemented last year by tracks like "Battle for North America" and "The Only Way Up", the latter being one of the brightest cuts to come out of a packed-with-hits Night Slugs camp. His willingness to take the basis of UK funky into techier, more austere turf meant he could stake a potential claim as a progressive-minded genre-tweaker. Still, all through his previous peaks, you could hear his music stretching, testing itself, reaching for something ahead even as it planted a couple solid feet directly in the midst of a spotlit movement.
