mp3: Arnold – 100 Dreams (i Luv Your Girl Rmx)

Arnold put out this remix over a month ago but it’s taken me that long to realize just how much I genuinely like this song.  Taking on The-Dream’s club crooner “I Luv Your Girl”, Arnold transforms the song into a properly danceable track with an increased speed, renovated beat and his “aaaaaaaarnold” tag.  True story, I showed this to a friend …

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 …

M|O|D at The Middle East Downstairs in Cambridge, MA

Last night Boston’s unstoppable beat crew M|O|D played a show opening for Rustie at The Middle East in Cambridge, and I was fortunate enough to be in attendance.  They went on at 10, just as the venue was starting to fill up and jumped right into a full on onslaught that lasted for half an hour.  If you enjoy listening to M|O|D’s bass-heavy …
