Hopefully you were lucky enough to join us this past Thursday at Kung Fu Necktie as we got down with the groovy vibes of Face Plant, Vibe Street, Brightside and FireJay. But, if you unable to make it out for the fun, FireJay captured a little taste of the night for all his listeners with this live recording of his portion of the set shared with Brightside.
This next mix is both enchanting and absolutely domineering in the realm of bass at the same time. HEISS combines elements of world music, most noticeably through glitchy vocal samples and the ambient instrumental layers. However, these are layered against glitchy beat layers that are just informative as each track’s composition.

This next mix is once again a live recording. And while we’re at it, it’s a bit different from our usual forte. If you’re unfamiliar with Beardyman, he is a high caliber beatbox artist having won the world beatboxing championship in both 2006 and 2007. This live set demonstrates Beardyman’s not only adept skills in beatboxing, but also using looping technology and synthesizers to keep his performances throbbing with life.
