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.
