Week in Review: 2/13-2/19

I have a lot more time on the weekends to do blog posts and have been thinking about doing little blurbs and links to some of the music that has me captivated each week- new releases, old stuff revisited, upcoming or unreleased stuff… just a place for random music.

This week Ben Samples put out another huge release, this time on Simplify Recordings.

The Skyscraper EP is the young Colorado producers fourth major solo release in less than a year.  Ben has been pumping out massive bass for a couple years now and has pretty much become a household name in the scene.  This EP is his most sophisticated production to date and considering he spent the first part of his production career giving away his tunes on Bandcamp, it is well worth the price to purchase.  Buy the Skyscraper EP here! Grab more of Samples music on Bandcamp and follow him on Facebook and Soundcloud.

Tommy Cappel aka Sidecar Tommy, the beat master drummer from Beats Antique just dropped a song on Soundcloud available for free download.  Tommy’s solo work is every bit as inspired as his work with Beats Antique and we should keep an eye out for more solo music from Tommy in the future.  Download Bangin Beauty here!

The Glitch Mob released Drink The Sea- The Remixes Volume 2 this week. This second round includes remixes from Virtual Boy, Beats Antique, Machinedrum, and DJ Vadim among others. All proceeds from sale of the album go to help rebuild Haiti. Buy both remix albums for one donation here! Follow The Glitch Mob on Facebook and Twitter.

Oakland is home to David Sugalski, the producer of many names.  You may know him as Ample Mammal or The Polish Ambassador.  This week, The Polish Ambassador released Homeboys In Outer Space- Episode 1.  This five song EP includes remixes of songs by Outkast, Young MC, and The Roots.  Name your price here! Follow The Polish Ambassador on Facebook and Soundcloud.

Dave Seied has been DJing in Denver for several years now and came out strong last year on Addictech’s charts with his debut release Speaker Organisms. He just dropped a mix of original and unreleased songs on Memkast this week. Grab the mix here! Follow Seied on Facebook and Soundcloud.
