Stephan Jacobs & Sugarpill have been working together on songs this year like a couple of crazed music scientists. Both reside in LA and play there regularly and they are both starting to tour around the US for gigs. You can also find them on Glitch.fm for the Polybeat Plant show on Tuesdays at 6pm PST. Sugarpill and Stephan Jacobs have each had a busy year in 2010 with several big singles and mixtapes released, and Sugarpill’s huge success with his debut album Flow Goggles.
Stephan Jacobs and Sugarpill worked on Level Attack and came up with a nicely polished piece of glitch hop art, complete with tough yet sexy vocals of Naada, who was also featured in a single that Stephan Jacobs and Love & Light collaborated on a few months ago. Her vocals give Level Attack that human voice that is so often missing in electronic music. This release features remixes by +verb, Ben Samples, Willy Whompa, Great Scott and ChrisB. Each remix focuses on a different highlight of the original and I am actually able to listen to the entire release without getting bored of this song! A separate post should be written about each of the amazing artists who remixed this song- each artist is doing amazing work to shape the future of glitch hop in their own way. Make sure to check them out! Thanks to Stephan Jacobs & Sugarpill for making “Level Attack” and inspiring these remixes!
