Lowriders remains true to form, keeping it skewed, crooked, and freaky as hell, in this latest limited edition compilation.
POWER SHUFFLES compiles seven forward thinking juke/footwork inspired tunes from all over the planet, into one vicious slab of vinyl goodness. Created with a root in the Chi Town sound, but operating somewhere within the fringe between genres, this album delivers a hyper fusion of style. Featuring: +verb, EVS, Julien Mier, Acre, Leatherface, Damscray, Motëm.
+verb kicks off the album with “Cortex”, a smooth and melodic, synth funk footwork masterpiece, oozing with soul. EVS drops “The Twin Paradox”, where silky smooth pads and synths juxtapose a hard hitting beat that drifts into an almost hardcore tempo, making this tune a dance floor killer. Julien Mier finishes up the A-Side with “As It Is”, a delightful little number, sounding like a glitchy wind-up music box filled to the brim with bubbling arpeggiation and crunchy beats.
The flip gets darker with Acre’s “I Don’t Waste Steps”. This tune comes in with a woozy metallic hit that moves in and out of the ether, before unleashing vocal chops and beat syncopations true to the Chicago aesthetic. Leatherface keeps it hood with “Watch Me Do My Thang”, a menacing anthem sounding like something on the soundtrack for a thugged out horror flick. Damscray’s “Real Street Stalkah” is up next to destroy your ears with its relentless drums and punishing bassline. Finishing up the B-Side is “Work”. A bone rattling, heavyweight, terrorizer brought to you by Motëm.
With Lowriders Recordings we're on the looking for freshness.The music we like is between styles not your plain stuff. So we
wanna hear the space between the genres like dubstep, funky, abstract beats, hip hop, skweee, electronics, 8bit, house, etc. Main idea is to get some amazing edgy stuff from all over the world. It should be skewed, crooked, mad and freaky as hell!...more
