R/D - "Stadium Chimera" by Matt Bomarr

r/d - "stadium chimera" (download) [audio]

Los Angeles-based producer R/D started off as a DJ. DJ'ing alongside the likes of Jamie Lidell, Squarepusher and Prefuse 73, among others, and producing his own music on the side.  It wasn't until he moved in with his friends Edit and Ooah of The Glitch Mob that he started to really get inspired, and started to take producing his own beat-heavy music more seriously.  This seems to have been the best move he could have made.  He has since shared bills with Flying Lotus, Bassnectar, Cocorosie, Les Claypool and more, and has now unleashed his Face Of God EP on the world.  Face Of God is out TODAY, and you can purchase it directly from him over at his Bandcamp page. website

Fancy Mike - "Death Proof" by Matt Bomarr

fancy mike - "death proof" (download) [audio]

Another new one from Bomarr Blog favorite Fancy Mike.  He's just released a FREE split EP with Raw Stiles called Fantastique on net-label Stereoptico.  If you're not up on Fancy Mike yet, after all these posts about him, you really need to stop and ask yourself..."what's wrong with me?", because're sleeping.   If you're a fan of Glitch Mob, Lazer Sword, J Dilla, etc, you really need to check this EP out.  I had a hard time figuring out which track to post because they're all great.  You can download the EP for free right here.

Mr. Flash - "Champions (TV Track)" by Matt Bomarr

mr. flash - "champions (tv track)" (download) [audio]

I've been enjoying this song for the past couple of weeks after a friend of mine put me up on it.  I didn't realize that it's already 4 years old. It's actually the instrumental version of a track that usually has French rappers TTC on it, but I like this instrumental version better.  After doing a bit of research about Mr. Flash, I learned that this beat was also used sans-TTC on Mos Def's last album The Ecstatic as well, although it was titled "Life In Marvelous Times." Oh, and he's on Ed Banger Records. You can buy the Champions EP, as well as his new EP Blood Sweat & Tears right here. myspace

Haiku D'Etat - "Mike, Aaron & Eddie (Boreta Remix)" by Matt Bomarr

haiku d'etat - "mike, aaron & eddie (boreta remix)" [audio]

I'm having a hard time putting into words how great this remix is.  Boreta of The Glitch Mob just made this banging remix of the classic Haiku D'Etat track available for free download right here. All you need to do is give them an email address.  Trust me, it's worth it.  I've been listening to this on repeat all day.  Look out for The Glitch Mob's Drink The Sea record at the end of the month too. myspace

Ooah - "Time Warp" by Matt Bomarr


Impressive new single from Ooah. This guy has been extremely productive lately. When he's not tearing shit up with his fellow beat-masters in The Glitch Mob, or getting saucy with MartyParty in PANTyRAid, or slowing things down a bit for his Of Porcelain project, he's releasing equally-as-nasty music under his own Ooah name. Great things to come this year, as The Glitch Mob have recently wrapped up their highly anticipated debut full length Drink The Sea. He's released this to hold you over. Buy the single (also featuring "Beginning" over at iTunes for only $1.98).

Opiuo - "King Prawn" by Matt Bomarr

opiuo - "king prawn" (stream-only)

I can't speak highly enough about this compilation that Bay Area producer An-Ten-Nae has put together. There are some incredibly nasty beats on here from the likes of Ooah (Glitch Mob/PANTyRAiD), Marty Party (PANTyRAiD), Adam Freeland, Robot Koch, An-ten-nae himself, and more. I hadn't heard of Opiuo before this compilation, but I did some research and found this amazing EP, which you can name your price on (no minimum), and it blew me away. Keep an eye on all of the artists associated with this compilation, and everything coming out of the Muti Music label, it's all really great stuff, and while you're at it...BUY THIS COMP!!

Bartlomein - "Dead Right" by Matt Bomarr

There's not a whole lot of information floating around about Bartlomein. He's based just outside of NYC in Bergen County, NJ. Here, he flips a classic Biggie track into something completely new. Be on the lookout for this guy. If the songs he has up for free on his Bandcamp page are any indication, this guy has the potential to come up fast.
