I’m loving this new product from Kraddy, the archetype of Glitch Mob’s sound. His new album, Anthems of the Hero, is as much metal as it is electronic. Never shying away from his glitch-hop roots, “Iron Man” packs those glitchy baselines in with a studio drummer and the iconic chord structure of Black Sabbath’s original recording. Would Tony Iommi approve of Kraddy’s reinvention of metal? Who cares. Kraddy is ripping his sound bigger and badder then ever.

I’m creaming in my paints because two of my favorite producers, Bassnectar and Amp Live are on “Ugly“, a little teaser off Bassnectar’s new album, VAVA VOOM (out April 10th). The Amp Live effect on “Ugly” is a snare booming, hop-hop leaning sound, and according to Bassnectar “[they] created a little banger to express how much we love it when music gets nasty.” I only stay at a show if the music is nasty. If you’re in the Bay Area, Bassnectar is playing in San Jose on May 5th. And be sure to check out Amp, his sets are always off the chain.

One thing I can tell you is that Richie Panic is a smart ass. “Choicez” Richie hooks up with sometimes LA, sometimes San Francisco group 5kinandbone5, who I assume rank up there with Richie in terms of smart-assness, and both artists have been commissioned to do remixes for Brooklyn label Fools Gold. “Choizes” is off Richie’s compilation, The Sound of Future Ass – a compilation that explores the future of ass.
