bullion - young heartache
Before djing in LA before Tycho I had to go music shopping and picked up some new albums and a couple EPs but I mostly played a lot of the tracks i’ve posted on the blog. This Bullion track isn’t really anything for the dancefloor but it was nice to hear it loud and see if people could appreciate it. The samples he chooses are a bit cut up but you never really notice since the rest of the round sounds smooth out the mix and the fast keys looping keep you completely satisfied.

After all the Burial hype someone needed to take the raines and Zomby did just that but with a bit more of a punch, I could only find 3 songs in his whole catalog that i liked but those 3 are pure gems.

The Librarian did an outstanding deep dubby techno track that his label mate Teef remixed. The track has this great line in it: “..the queen has been wounded the worker will fight, the queen has been wounded the worker will die. and i can’t stop until you’re gone. and i won’t stop until you’re gone. your heart is still beating…” really worth checking out.

The dreamy at times Paavoharju put Finland on the map when it comes to indie accepted experimental folk here in the States. The band is on a phenomenal label called Fonal, if you have any time to dig you might want to check that catalog thoroughly because they have some lovely releases.

Bullion – Long Promised


Zomby – Test Me For A Reason


The Librarian – The Hornet’s Nest (Teef’s Antihistamine Remix)


Paavoharju – Kevätrumpu

Oh man – the Bullion EP is just superb. All 4 tracks. I’d love to know what he’s been sampling. Have you heard his Funnybones 45 – came out a few months back? That too is amazing.

I was wearing a black v-neck and a backwards black baseball cap (so stylish I know) standing in the corner where the dude in the leather jacket/hoodie combo was setting up his gear. Pretty much kitty corner from you. I had to jet shortly after Scott’s set. Dammit. Next time you’re in town, hit me up!
