Download: Ultrademon "Drive U Crazy (Machine Girl's [UN]d3∆D cPuNx MiX)"

First Listen

Following the release of his recent Voidic Charms LP, Ultrademon (pictured above) has enlisted NYC producer Machine Girl to remix album cut "Drive U Crazy." A sleek piece of pop-infused house (which features the talents of The GTW and Zombelle) in its original form, Machine Girl takes the track to slightly more hyperactive territory, sharpening its rhythms with extra doses of fast-paced hats and the occasional chopped break. Furthermore, the rework finds Machine Girl stripping back the original production's vocal threads, deciding to instead focus his efforts on the song's many restless, candy-coated synth tones. Machine Girl's remix for "Drive U Crazy" can be downloaded below while the video for Ultrademon's original track (out now via Coral) can be watched after the jump. Read more »

Download: Altroy "Tokui Waza"

First Listen
Label: Pomelo

Vienna-based label Pomelo is set to celebrate its 20th anniversary over the course of the next two months with a pair of 12" compilations featuring tracks from the likes of Tin Man, Elektro Guzzi, and a handful of other locally based artists. Before releasing the 20 Years #1 12" on September 1, the label has passed along this contribution from Harlem-born techno producer Altroy (a.k.a. TJ Hicks). On "Tokui Waza," the artist flexes his dancefloor muscle, lacing the track's steady stomp with a wobbly bassline and an array of interlocking patterns fashioned from machine-made hits and resonant stabs. Altroy's produciton for the first 12" compilation in Pomelo's 20th anniversary series will be joined by others from Pulsinger & Irl, DJ Glow, and Buffered Multiple when the record drops next week.
