||Dark Corners of the Earth||C L N K is Silviu Badea of Bucharest, Romania. The young producer publishes beat and ambient music under the name of Montgomery Clunk, Contorsionist, and Fjord. Adopting the C L N K moniker, Badea dives into nitty-gritty techno music that sets the pace for his upcoming debut album Black Ecstasy and this mixtape, too. Dark Corners of the World is an all-exclusive compilation of unreleased C L N K tracks, plus contributions of friends from Bucharest. In a recent interview, Badea reflects on electronic music in the Eastern Europe and hints at a new label in the making. His mixtape showcases the talent the Romanian capitol secretly covers. Enigmatic, filthy techno music that leans from ambient, dub, and noise. Dark Corners of the World should make not only a few heads turn. Tracklist: 01. C L N K - F**k hype 02. C L N K - Earn cash, spend it all 03. C L N K - We are mutants 04. C L N K - Zombie Mechanic 05. MGCH - Diva 06. Unknown - Untitled 07. ARME - Ziplock 08. Unknown - Untitled 09. MGCH - Diodie 10.

||Johnny Cash Was Never your Dad||We first came upon Zack Christ when Soosh introduced the name as a potential remixer for his Colour is Breathe Remixes project late in 2012. Shortly after, Zack stared in a collaborative EP with prolific Muscovite Pixelord and had a single release on Infinite Machine. Just recently, he officially remixed Bambooman for Londons' Sonic Router Records. It is safe to Zack Christ made himself a name in no time. We are proud to present an exclusive contribution of the Danish producer in our infrequent series of mixtapes. Zack Christs' dark and eccentric blend of glitchy electronica, dub, and hip hop is the red line in his mix although the producer does not contribute an original. In fact, Christ traces his influence and pays tribute to Ben Frost, Tim Hecker, or Autechre while adding recent favourites like Bambooman, Lukid, Mount Kimbie, and many more. Zack Christ criss-crosses tempi and genres to deliver a mix that functions on an atmospheric level rather than rhythmically. In his hands, noisy ambient blends into a Turkish elegy, mixes with a North American Kunstlied and eventually becomes this fathomless UK ragga remix. Time to hit the play button. Tracklist: 01. Ennio Morricone - A Fistful Of Dollars 02. Dj Kost - Jeg knapper gerne (interlude) 03. Ben Frost - Untitled transient 04. Bambooman - Sun 05. M.E.S.H. - On My Body (Arca Grind Edit) 06. Nabo - 4 Minutes 07. Lukid - Veto 08. Mount Kimbie - At Least 09. Felix de Luca - Ass So Fat (Filip Ja Remix) 10. Tim Hecker - Introducing Carl Cocks 11. Daniel Maze - Sledding 12.

||Stumblebum Motivation||ages is young Michael Lundy of Orange County, California. As a recording artist he blends ambient and obscure pop music with leftfield hip hop beats and spacious synth textures; a mixture you can find with his tape 'Stumblebum Motivation' as well. Starting with an unreleased ages remix of Motion Sickness of Time Travel, Lundy drops the exclusive ages vs. Citymouth collaboration 'Michael Bownzon' for maximum effect. He carefully tunes the atmosphere towards washed-out and reverb-laden and sun-dried pop, culminating in the fake-80s synth gloss of Contact Lenses. From here, Lundy moves deeper into dance terrain. Intriguing to hear how well 90s R&B, acid house, juke, and trap go together. Dreams mixes perfectly with devonwho, and Lundy sails into downtempo waters again. We get to hear another two exclusives (ahnnu and ages) before Broken Social Scene perfectly sets stages for the unreleased 'Edie Drone' by matthewdavid. Tracklist: 01. Motion Sickness of Time Travel - Late Day Sun Silhouettes (ages Remix) 02. ages - Michael Bownzon feat. Citymouth 03. Mystery Cave - Glass Eye 04. ages- Esplanade feat. Mndsgn X Uz - TRAP S**T V7 05.

||SHTRAK LOVE||H-SIK put together a tape for us that is not only brilliantly mixed but showcases the influences he draws from as a producer as well. You hear hybrid Ragga and Dancehall (Mad Cobra, Chrissy Murderbot), a whole lot of Juke-inspired tunagery (Moresounds, EPROM, EAN, Ital Tek) and the finest in electronic Rap music (Lorn, Illum Sphere, Om Unit). In the hands of H-SIK all the different sounds match each others perfectly, making 'SHTRAK LOVE' an instructive and entertaining 30 minutes lecture in bass music. We insistently recommend to get down with H-SIK on this. Tracklist: 01. John Chantler - Untitled #3 02. Mad Cobra - Shot A Talk (Danny Scrilla Edit) 03. Nicolas Hayer- Bufin' 04. 813 - Erotica (Om Unit Remix) 05. Romare - I Wanna Go (Turn Back) 06. Moresounds - Dancing Shoes 07. EPROM - Regis Chillbin (Machinedrum Remix) 08. EAN – Burnt 09.

||Arabic Gum||Oleg Buyanov aka OL is the unsung hero of the Russian beat scene. Based in Moscow and leading producer of the RAD collective, he's been low-key since the very beginning of his musical career. Following the 'Fly Russia' tsunami he emerged to the international scene with the 'Random Phrase' EP on Error Broadcast and the 'Kurilovo' 7" on Faces Records making heads turn from LA to Tokyo with his blend of textured beats. While working on new material for his forthcoming 12" EP on Error Broadcast he's been busy djing with his partner-in-crime Lapti, so we asked a contribution to our mixtape series to check what's going on in the club scene of Moscow. Arabic Gum is the perfect reflection of what's contemporary and fresh in the beat sphere: from the Lex Luger bassocentric hip-hop of Tyga to the hyper dance-music of Sinjin Hawke passing through Juke (Distal & Rashad) and Techno (Benjamin Damage & Doc Daneeka, Nah Like). By tuning in you'll experience 30 minutes of pure dopeness for the dancefloor, a major system-upgrade from one of the finest digger. Sit tight and get ready to dance. Tracklist: 01. Casey Veggies - I Be Over S**t 02. French Fries - Crushin On Me 03. The Quest - Swirl 04. Dj Jayhood - Round Of Applause 05. ASAP ROCKY - Been Around The World (Sweatson Klank RE-RUB) 06. Sinjin Hawke - Crystal Dust 07. Kittypillarz - M.M.T v1 08. Wiz Khalifa ft. Juicy J - In My Car (Tha Puff Bus) 09. CDBL - Gangsta's Anthem 10. Benjamin Damage & Doc Daneeka - Deaf Siren 11. Nah Like - Hunt Season 12. Distal & Dj Rashad - Stuck Up Money 13. Rabit - F****n Bitches 14. Tyga - Lapdance 15. OL - IWM 16. Hodgy Beats - BKLN||2/27/2012||Free||View In iTunes|
||Blurred||Maguett aka Dmitrii Drozdov started his carrier in music with razor-sharp and nihilistic IDM on a number of Russian netlabels. When he had his track 'Fog Movement' on our first release 'Bag of Nothingness' Dima had moved towards a more beat scene-oriented sound already. Maguett has never been at the very core of the 'Fly Russia' movement, but his contribution 'Orange Flame' to the compilation of the same name added a dark shade that is important for the full picture. Thus it is no wonder G5 Music has eventually put its hands on Maguett and published his first proper releases in a long while. Make sure not to miss out on 'Twilight'. Maguetts' mixtape 'Blurred' plays the cards pretty smooth. He sews soulful vocals into ambient textures, plays with different time codes and atmospheres and switches elegantly from lo-fi VHS sounds to ultradeep Dub spheres. By times sugarsweet, then again intractable this is not a DJ set to rock a club but an artistically challenging patchwork of contemporary Bass Music. Tracklist: 01. The Fog Detonator 02. Maguett - Data (Intro) 03. Napolian - Olympia 04. Atom TM - Moral Poverty Three 05. Hype Williams - Three Bands 06. iL - Conductors 07. Trey's Patience (Voice) 08. Björk - Storm 09.

||Zansho||Next in our in-frequent series of mixtapes is ichiro_, one Japans' top-notch beat makers. We have been working with the Nerima-based producer for remixes on ‘Error Code’ by AEED and DZA’s sold-out cassette. He just released the debut album 'Unconsidered_' with Japanese Oilworks and published a digital EP 'Noon' earlier in June 2011. What is true for ichiro_’s original productions can be found with ‘Zansho’ as well. He squeezes 23 tracks into 60 tight minutes, songs strongly enlaced and re-edited with reverb, delay, and compression. What we get to hear is one hour of high energy beats, a mesmerizing flow of instrumental Hip Hop and electronic music, with hints of UK Bass and Japanese Rap. ichiro_ balances abrasive beats with highly textured pads; his influence from Ambient and Tape music is obvious. Despite all the heavyness ichiro_ manages to surprise with elegant and fresh sounds every once a while, making 'Zansho' a proper must-listen. Tracklist: 01. ichiro_ - Kusamushiri 02. Actress - Supreme C*********s 03. Hubert Daviz - Falling 04. Moa Pillar - Water Lily 05. Samiyam - Where Am I 06. DZA - Softgram (ichiro_ Katte Re-edit) 07. Circle vs Square - Eraser 08.

||When I'm Trippin||After Anenon and S.Maharba we're back with another exclusive mixtape from one of the most exciting producers of the moment, Kindred Spirits' wunderkind Jameszoo. Not much is known about the young fella except he's 19 (can you believe?) and that he is going to release a concept album around the iconic figure of Hermeto Pascoal on Amsterdam's Kindred Spirits (Dorian Concept, Jneiro Jarel, Mwëslee, ...). We first saw the light in his eyes when the futuristic Pixelord's remix dropped on Lucid Freaks pt.2, but he's now ready to take off with his own melange of future-soul and abstract beats. Go cop his 7" to get an idea of what we're talking about... 'When i'm trippin' is a 23-tracks journey into Jameszoo's musical world, connecting past and present of the Nu-School beats. From Jazz to Boom Bap Hip Hop, from experimental electronica to new Bass-science. Originality is still alive somewhere...this is the place! Tracklist: 01. Gravediggaz - Defective Trip 02. Tyler, the Creator - Yonkers 03. Gucci Mane - My Chain (Jonwayne basement mix) 04. Bibio - Mind Bokeh 05. Jameszoo - A Dead Sun 06. Rick Ross - Every Day Hustlin (instrumental) 07.

||A Fragmented Luminescence||Anenon is Brian Allen Simon, musician and founder of Non Projects, a forward-thinking music label based out of Los Angeles. The young label's roster includes the likes of Asura, Ana Caravelle, a.d.l.r., and Anenon himself. A lifetime resident of LA, Brian is fully interested in the ever changing intersection of heart and ability in the fields of music and sound as you can clearly hear from this mix for Error Broadcast. Neighbours make their appearance (devonwho, Baths, yuk., a.d.l.r.) but there is definitely more than friends’ music on this mix. Brian digs into experimental Jazz and old school Electronica, as well as Ambient and Psychedelic Rock, condensing all elements into 25 minutes of emotive fluxus. We invite you to get lost with the final part of the mix where Brian showcases his latest experimentations in Sax intonation, texture and deep drones. Shallow and depth. Worth the trip! Tracklist: 01. Meredith Monk - Word Intro 02. Meredith Monk - Fields / Clouds 03. Anenon - Lowlands 04. Boards of Canada - Light Clear Hair 05.

AEED, ichiro_ and OL from our team make another appearance, as well as EB future wunderkind iL. UK stands tall with Kato, Young Montana? and shooting stars Forest Swords.

That's the best way I can think to describe Error
I'm a music maker... Main instrument God blessed me with (along with guitar skills) is my Voice.
I also know how to make good sounding recordings and know how to write a good song.
... I say this to point out that before you can write a good song , you must've First HEARD a 'good song' (ie a song you and your friends actually Enjoy listening to and or performing)
I can write good music... Others enjoy listening to and or performing it—it's good to people who like music which is good lol
I've seen the proof from the people that I can recognize a good song
Thus I can stand as an honest judge and critic of Error:
This is the MOST MOST MOST Innovative Original yet 'Fantastic sounding' and Very Very Well thought up thought out & thought thru *NEW* Music, I've heard in MORE than a decade! Just Plain Well Written SONGS—not mere beats!
A Singer, ANY Singer, or rapper or poet or a President giving a speech would be BLESSED to have an ERROR Track (as their Instrumental)
100% honest. And I don't even know these guys/this guy/gals/and/or this girl etc.
PEEP THIS: Error don't NEED you Mr. Vocalist.... Like I said... These are not Mere beats but Fine SONGS.
They're Clean and are fine to do it like I do it and RIDE ALONE—they don't need any support (but adding in vocals wouldn't 'take away' from or be 'too much' for Error music—Im often freeVersing/freestyling/Singing to, thus have my own, music for Error's songs)
If u read this, Error, I would be glad to know ya. Maybe message me on facebook? Richard Brenden Lozano San Diego, CA
Respect & Love
This is the best instrumental music ever I'm writting a rap to one of the songs thx error u da best
Don't sleep on these works. Important production work here. The future sounds amazing.
