LOFILES 2011′S SIXTYNINE

December 22nd, 2011

This collection of songs has been curated out of the 300 artists and tracks we have covered throughout the year. This has been more or less my iPod’s most abused playlist, and the magical number that we have come up with, are those songs that have accompanied us for the longest time. Those of you that will dig deeper, will realize that our heart belongs to lofi minimalistic bedroom music and we are always on the search for musicians that succeed in making inspiring music within the limitations of their homes or bedroom and despite of the fact they had no budget . SONG ORDER IS PRETTY MUCH MEANINGLESS, allthough we have placed the artists you are most likely to know at the top spots.

We wish you a Merry Christmas, a Happy Chanukah, a Joyous Kwanzaa, and a Happy New Year…and we hope next year will be as inspiring and rewarding as this one.

Raindrops

November 11th, 2011

Monster Rally & RUMTUM is the collaboration of Ted Feighan (Monster Rally) and John Hastings (RUMTUM). The two natives of Cleveland met in Columbus through mutual friends and began bonding over a love of good groove and music. The project is the exploration of their shared musical tastes influenced by hip-hop, psych-pop, dub, dance and funk. The EP, MR&RT, is a seven-track introduction to the sound of Monster Rally & RUMTUM and serves as a preview of what’s to come…Their collaboration EP, MR&RT will be out February 7th, 2012 and can be pre-ordered now from the Waaga records store. Listen to this sweeeet appetizer..

 


MFD

July 31st, 2011

Thomas Klepper is part founder and resident at Downtown Los Angeles’ private monthly underground: Music For Dancers. His eclectic style ranges from jazz to noise, from techno to dub, from classic rock to ambient. From the stylus to the speakers to the warehouse space. Listen to this gorgeous mix RIGHT HERE from Dublab com


Peakin lights

April 20th, 2011

This is a nasty combination: Groove, melody, musical parts and psychedlia. Peaking lights are more than a Dub groove oriented band. Their basics might come from classic dub, but their tone is so rich and hazy, and hypnotizes you. Listening to the fifth track on 936, Hey sparrow, makes me forget everything I wanted to leave behind. Plus watch this great video of that same album, ‘All the sun that shines’. 936 is out on Not not fun.

Hey-Sparrow

Dub Trio

May 18th, 2010

First time I was introduced to this kick a.. trio was in Berlin, when they were playing with Matisyahu, and supporting him doing their part. They were playing tracks of this album, Another sound is dying, kind of a mixture between Dub Pistols and Living Color. They are tight. Sound good, I love their unique bass sound, and you should go to see Dub Trio if they are playing at the theatre near you.
