• NEW MIX! KidVector Presents: Infinity City

    21 Dec 2008, 20:40 by KidVector

    This mix is by no means an end of year round up, but it's certainly preoccupied with one of the emerging sounds of 2008. Hip-tronica, wonky, aqua crunk... whatever you want to call it there's no denying the momentum is with the off kilter/post Dilla knob twiddlers.

    Names like Hudson Mohawke, Rustie and Flying Lotus have been reverberating around the blog-sphere all year. And with 2009 seeing debut long players for the aforementioned Hud Mo and Rustie interest is only set to intensify.

    Whilst journalists wrestle with what to call this movement L.A's dublab seems to have a good take on things. 'Future Roots Music' essentially describes any music taking inspiration from the past to look into the future.

    It's from that perspective that the near-future mega-tropolis of Infinity City was conceived. A place of optimism, universal humanism and heavy beats!

    I hope you enjoy your stay. :)
