EP: C.Z. – bathtub

Over the past year C.Z. (of M|O|D)’s sound has gone in a number of different directions.  He started buzzing with a sound that could be pretty easily classified as trap with songs like “Doin’ What I Do” and over the past few months has moved towards a heavy UK Garage influence with songs like “wana do”.  Now, with bathtub, C.Z, is releasing his …

EP: Yung Satan – Maserati

Out of all of the changing styles in M|O|D over the past year, one of the most exciting to watch in progress has been Yung Satan.  In the early stages of M|O|D’s work together Yung Satan stuck with a fairly distinct style of rapidly chopping samples to make melodic lines, but eventually started experimenting and moving away from it.  Over …

EP: M|O|D – PENG 002

Boston’s finest are back with the second installment in their PENG trill-ogy (hahahhah get it? im the man) and its more bangier than ever.  PENG 001 saw the five producers basically abandoning the cliché’s of their former trap aesthetic for more house and garage-influenced styles, and PENG 002 finds them polishing those sounds even more.  The EP opens with a track from C.Z. that …

M|O|D – PENG001 (EP)

With some of M|O|D’s earlier work, they were easily put into the increasingly claustrophobic box of trap music.  Trap music’s future is looking increasingly uncertain, so M|O|D are wisely moving away from the genre that many thought was all they knew how to do.  For PENG001 M|O|D kept it simple and down to only 1 track from each of them, which …

mp3: Sonja Marie – And I Gave My Love To You (Yung Satan Ultra Gucci Screw Down)

In between providing us with some of the most interesting and colorful future-trap and electronic beats the blogosphere has to offer and kicking it with the other cool dudes of M|O|D, Yung Satan likes to get introspective and spend time reworking the soulful tunes of Sonja Marie.  Yung Satan’s ‘And I Gave My Love To You (Ultra Gucci Screw Down)’ doesn’t …

mp3: Rewrote – o Rain

Promising a “new sad club song for sad ravers in dark environments”, M|O|D member Rewrote continues to experiment beyond future-trap with his newest track ‘o Rain’.  Rewrote set lofty expectations for ‘o Rain’ and I wasn’t sure if the poetic description would match the content but the track absolutely delivers with an atmospheric, gorgeous and huge sound.  On ‘o Rain’, Rewrote …

mp3: Arnold – WRLD

Just because Arnold is moving away from the label of “Trap” (a decision I completely agree with), doesn’t mean he isn’t still the king of pitched 808 kicks.  After releasing M|O|D IV Arnold is taking no time to rest by immediately releasing this banger specifically for the ladies.  Stepping a little bit away from the more experimental sounds of M|O|D IV, …
