Glitch-hop

Dark Red

Artist: 
Shlohmo
Label: 
True Panther Sounds

It's about time. This new Shlohmo album is fire - but not for the typical Shlohmo reasons. You could probably already tell that from the singles he released before (Beams, Buried, and Emerge From Smoke). The tracks on this are a lot heavier and somewhat creepier than his older stuff. They're not very wam or happy or dreamy? They're also slower/more drawn out and of course meticulously crafted. As always he effectively sets up subtly epic soundscapes for the listener to get lost in (I got a trippy space alien vibe coming from most of it).

Colors in Disguise

Artist: 
Robotic Pirate Monkey
Label: 
Self-Released

Robotic Pirate Monkey's first completely original, non-remix based album is definitely a pretty chill collection of songs.There's also plenty of bass-heavy songs for you to play at a party. Overall, this is a really good crossover between dubstep and instrumental hip-hop. A lot of the album sounds like Pretty Lights, so check this out if you're a fan of his stuff.

Bad Girls Go to Hell

Artist: 
S.P.E.C.T.R.E
Label: 
True Movement

Mmmmm dirrrrty electro. Wide variety of music here, but mostly hard, highly mechanical electro and dubstep. The last track is a pretty chill dubstep, but I'm not that big fan of dubstep, so I'll let you be the judge. Really heavy stuff that makes you want to like fistpump the air like a pro at a super grimey underground electro show. (See track reviews for more detail)
