The Up-Turn

@TheUpTurnMusic / tinyurl.com/upturnfbook

When Jamie Foxx was making the pre-YOLO blackout anthem “Blame It”, I doubt he was intending it to have anything close to a personal, introverted vibe.  Fortunately, we have Groundislava to change it into that for us.  By pitching down the vocals a little bit, and creating a new understated back drop with simple production and beautiful melodies, Groundislava has turned every drunk girl of 2009’s favorite song into a beautifully dark and solemn ode.  If you haven’t yet wised up to Groundislava or WEDIDIT Collective (which includes Groundislava, Earnest Blount, Shlohmo, RL Grime, and Jonwayne among others) you are missing out on some of the best electronic music you will find in 2012.
