Hey, that’s my car! Get outta there, Flying Lotus! you owe me one window, man…
We’ve got official word on the FlyLo-curated radio station on the new Grand Theft Auto game, new music from Bro Safari and Space Laces, a remix EP from Kill The Noise and an album from Mat Zo, and way more in today’s Newsbyte.
FlyLo Caught Planning GTA
A few weeks ago, we heard bits and pieces of a new radio station manned by one Flying Lotus. While this is true, the station won’t be on radio services, digital or otherwise.
As they like to do, Rockstar Games commissioned The Brainfeeder boss to create a radio station for their next GTA installment, Grand Theft Auto V, that is representative of LA’s current music scene, and who better to do it than FlyLo?
After fans assumedly made a unified and fervent request for the material, he replied:
Once the game is out, expect some of the radio material to surface in one way or another.
MEMF Slates A Date
Detroit’s Movement Electronic Music Festival is like the dark chocolate of dance music festivals in the US. It’s not for everyone, and newbies likely won’t find it as delicious to their less-than-seasoned musical tastebuds as the headliner-fueled EDCs and EZoos, but once you’re sick of eating milk chocolate with the kids, the complex notes of purist techno and house curated each year by Paxahau at MEMF will make you melt.
No lineup has yet been announced for next year’s fest, but we’ve got the dates confirmed for May 24-26, 2014 back at Hart Plaza in Detroit. Get more info here, and check back for a lineup undoubtedly covered in house music with a creamy techno center.
Bro Safari x Space Laces = $free.99
Louisville local Space Laces teamed up with moombah monsignor Bro Safari for a free slapper for your speakers, titled Fang Banger. The jam is a rowdy breaks-inspired number along the lines of what we’ve heard from Dog Blood as of recent, yet with that unmistakable Bro and Laces bounce. As far as a genuine description goes, we aren’t sure how to label this thing. It’s a tempo that, according to Mr. Safari, “works with trap, kuduro, dubstep and things like that, but it doesn’t really sound like any of those things either.”
At any rate, pick it up here for free.
Mat Zo Offers Damage Control
Fresh off his latest jam, Pyramid Scheme with Chuck D, Mat Zo announced today that his debut artist album, Damage Control, will be out “soon” on Astralwerks. Stream a short (and not what you expect) teaser of the album and sign up for more info here.
The Zo will also be heading out on a world tour, including a North American bus tour and a launch party in London. Subscribe to the above-linked list for info as soon as it becomes available.
The Rock Is Hot
After the first of the burners left their homes for Black Rock City, reports from The Playa came back warning of increased police presence at the traditionally law enforcement-free event (save for Black Rock Rangers).
Stoney Roads reports that the presence of local and Nevada state law enforcement at Burning Man is making people nervous, not to mention their checkpoints and alleged threats of violence against a historically non-violent and self-policing event.
In response, activist group RIOT (Reform In Our Time) released a statement:
“RIOT is a quiet organization of people who feel that there are certain issues at Burning Man that need to be addressed . . . Our demands are simple: We want law enforcement excluded . . . People at Burning Man have each other to rely on, and they have Black Rock Rangers. We don’t need outside law enforcement, and we can call them if we do . . . It’s all about money in the end. We could find a different way to pay the powers that be, though. A way that doesn’t involve filling our city with police officers from other cities when there’s no emergency . . . If the cops would leave their badges and guns at home like everyone else in BRC, we’d welcome them just like we welcome anyone else. We’d even build them a Donut Camp!”
RIOT plans for all workers who are not critical to public safety to strike on the Friday of the festival. “We call on all our sisters and brothers to spread the word and honor the strike. Friday at dusk, without violence, we take our city back!”
Not sure how the local badges will respond to this, but we imagine we echo most sentiments by saying if it ain’t broke, don’t fill it with cops.
