mp3: Hanz – Capsule

Woah.  After reducing his sound down to bare minimum and then deconstructing pop sounds, Hanz has actually put out a track that could almost be described as straightforward… almost.  On “Capsule”, Hanz explores the understated side of UK dubstep and bass-music while retaining his unique penchant for huge sounds coming from minimal production.  Imagine wiping away the midnight romanticism from Untrue.  “Capsule” revels …

The Up-Turn Presents: A Conversation With Trap Arnold

If you haven’t noticed yet, a new trend is sweeping through the electronic music scene.  The rolling hi-hats and pitched 808 bass drums of Southern hip-hop’s trap music are infiltrating the electronic music scene, creating a genre that many are calling Future Trap.  At the forefront of this genre is Boston’s extremely talented M|O|D crew which is a group of …

Mixtape: M|O|D – M|O|D III

After a couple of very nice singles, Boston’s best, the M|O|D boys are back in a blaze of glory with a brand spanking new mixtape, M|O|D III.  The compilation opens up with a track from Trap Arnold, flaunting some of the most glorious horns you will ever hear in a future trap beat, and only goes up hill from there.  …

mp3: Anthony Ellect – Vases

Ever since we were first put onto Anthony Ellect’s music, us folks over here at The Up-Turn have been really impressed with his consistent stream of unique electro-jams.  With “Vases”, Ellect is continuing that trend in a very nice way.  “Vases” finds Ellect manipulating a small arsenal of unintelligible, heavily-reverbed vocal samples into a base melody, and surrounding that idea …

mp3: Slow Magic & Beat Culture – Once

If you thought Beat Culture has been on a tear for the last year and a half or so that he’s been making music, just wait until two weeks when he becomes a high school graduate.  To kick off the summer for us, Beat Culture has teamed up with Soundcloud producer Slow Magic to create a beautifully delicate song for …

mp3: SBTRKT- Gamelena

SBTRKT is one of the biggest forces in bass music right now, so it’s no surprised that the producer-centric blogosphere is going crazy over his latest leak ‘Gamelena’.  Working more as an announcement that he’s working in the studio again than as a proper single, ‘Gamelena’ shows off some experimenting and tinkering coming from  SBTRKT.  With the bird chirps and the low …

Slates- Slates EP

I am a huge fan of noise-punk rockers No Age, so when Sunik (a.k.a. Beat Culture) claimed Slates were like No Age I was incredibly excited.  Slates is most certainly a lo-fi/trashy EP, however, it owes just as much to electronic music as it does to noise.  Throughout the 5-tracks, Slates shows off an incredibly diversity and maturity in song …
