Tzusan - C.Y.$.L (Official Video)

"C.Y.$.L", the latest single to drop from impending Skoop Records release "The Teriyaki Tape", by surreal-edged lyricist CRPNTR and piff wizard royalty Tzusan, is an eerie stomper accompanied with low budget horror-flick visuals straight out the blair witch project. Tzusan's bars and production blend seamlessly into a jerky, minimal, percussive soundscape of untold mystery and thundering bass tones.

Watch out for "The Teriyaki Tape" dropping 17/11/17 on Skoop.

CRPNTR X TZUSAN - Horse [HD Video]

"Horse" is the first single taken from CRPNTR x TZUSAN's upcoming release, "The Teriyaki Tape". Out 17/11/17 on Skoop Records.

A taste of what to expect from the project, "Horse" is dripping with melancholy melodies and infused with CRPNTR's distinct style of strangely depressing poetic surrealism. Tzusan's subdued production sets a bleak tone and effortlessly ties the track together with a washed-out, futuristic UK sound guaranteed to be in heavy rotation on a soundsystem near you very shortly...

Papillon - W00D£N M4N

The first video form Papillion's forthcoming album, "D£4D M4N$ RUBB£R C1TY" dropping 25/09/17 on Skoop. Recorded over a crazy year in Akron, Ohio and Edinburgh, Scotland, the album is a journey of drug fuelled carnage and subsequent self-discovery oozing with dirty basslines and eerie, atmospheric noises topped of with glittering synths and trill hi-hats.

Fragments EP by Ashtronomik

 ‘Fragmented EP’ is Ash’s first solo released project both as an emcee and as a producer where he goes in depth about very personal matters in his life in the space of only a few tracks. He uses storytelling and lyrical skill to provide background to some of the things that has shaped him thus far. It is mainly jazz-influenced with an old-school vibe in order to portray a chapter that has been left behind and is definitely the start of more music to follow.

The Van Dammage - Neon and Noisy [Review]

The Van Dammage - Neon and Noisy

Music - David Lo Pan
Vocals/Lyrics - Becca Starr

I didn't hear music of this genre growing up, being a late 80's baby it wasn't in my record collection or surroundings. Playing GTA: Vice city, or watching the iconic movie Scarface would be when I first heard this type of electronic 80's style music. So for me this type release is hard to pin down and explain. It manages to sound both current and retro. Waves of nostalgia flow over, yet the production is so clean and crisp it’s clearly more modern and suitable for 2017 release.

Becca Starr is pretty well known in the Glasgow music scene, her solo work and gig nights have been consistent and well received for a number of years. The band / duo element really adds to her talent, while sometimes more production and range of sounds squeezed together can drown out the vocals, this isn’t the case. David’s powerful music with powerful lead vocals works. Forget the auld saying; ‘less is more’, more is more, well - at least when balanced like this.

The exuberance of The Van Dammage is undeniable. There is a relentlessly cheery, uplifting and sometimes camp aspect to their music that makes it hard to dislike. It is fun music to keep you uplifted, you just can’t hate on that style and vibe.

In short: This should have been the Kung Fury soundtrack. The Van Dammage kick it harder than a Robotic Kung Fu army or Viking Laser Raptors ever could.

1.       Aim Right & Fire
2.       Electrifying
3.       Back to the 80s
4.       Liberate
5.       Winless game
6.       Cougar
7.       Darkest Night
8.       Thoughts Unheard
9.       Golden
10.   Clamber
11.   Two Sides

Favourite track: Golden.

Why: God damn it’s epic. Becca’s vocals on that hook, for f**k sake that’s outstanding. Shiver down the spine, scream on top a cliff or sky-scrapper type tune. That chorus is such high energy it’s going to leave an impact on anyone that listens. At the volume I’ll play this, that’s my whole street.

Second Favourite track: Cougar.

Why: the opening bass, the electronic backing vocals work perfectly to compliment Becca's powerful main lead. Plus, who doesn’t love a dirty cougar? haha.
