Monday tunes, brought to you by Tanktop Jimmy.
This Monday’s playlist is brought to you by one Uday Kapur, who also goes by Tanktop Jimmy. Tanktop Jimmy is a young electronica producer who’s been making waves lately, with his Don’t Fuck With The Fat Kid EP traversing between electro hip-hop, dubstep and drum n’ bass, and a second EP, Liquid Arms scheduled to release later this month. Download Don’t Fuck With The Fat Kid here, and singles from Liquid Arms here and here. Over to the tunes.
1. Metz – ‘Headache’
Metz are a Canadian noise rock/sludge punk band that I’ve been listening to for the past six-odd months. ‘Headache’ is the first track off their eponymous album (nominated for the 2013 Polaris Music Prize) that defines their sound; aggressive guitar tones with primal like, distorted vocals.
2. Earl Sweatshirt – ‘WHOA’ ft. Tyler The Creator
I cannot wait for Doris, Earl Sweatshirt’s debut album to come out tomorrow. Earl’s been a part of the OFWGKTA (Odd Future Wolf Gang Kill Them All) collective for quite some time and was famously sent by his mother to boarding school in Samoa because of his close relationship with Tyler The Creator. If ‘WHOA’ is anything to go by, Doris is going to be one of the biggest rap records of 2013.
3. Noisia – ‘Lilith’s Club’
Noisia can do no wrong. Their soundtrack for the new Devil May Cry is one off the best game soundtracks of all time. ‘Lilith’s Club’ is a progressive bass track with tons of groove, but the genius for me is the guitar riff at the end.
4. Zoo Babies – ‘Where Ya Going’
Jus Reign’s supporting cast is actually a Punjabi hip-hop collective called Zoo Babies, and they’re nothing like Honey Singh.
5. White Lies – ‘Death’ (Chase and Status remix)
I heard this track at a London club in 2011, and it’s one of the most well produced tracks I’ve ever heard. If you’re introducing someone to bass music, this is the song they need to hear.
