mp3: Death Grips- Takyon (Hanz Mix)

Apparently remixing Death Grips is the new cool thing with some of my favorite beat makers 1 Minute Miracles and now Hanz taking on the critically acclaimed material from Exmilitary.  Hanz does a good job lightening the mood of the song by including some fun samples while still showing reverence to the dark source material.  Hanz’ signature off-time drums are there and he even throws some sax in the mix which give a new light to the track while still being menacing when it needs to be.

mp3: bitterTV- firstloveritual

Russian beat maker bitterTV offers some of the most refreshing and interesting takes on chill-wave, a genre which has become over-saturated since its 2009 boom.  Describing his track as ‘Modern Ritual Chillout’, bitterTV has made a menacing and minimal track that definitely takes influence from what was actually good about that whole witch-house thing.  ’firstloveritual’ doesn’t even change much throughout its 3-plus minutes yet it is incredibly hypnotic.  Stream and download below…
