Masia One is rare talent and one that we’ve been honored to work with in the past few years. One of those artists we love to see succeed in every way.
So we are stoked to announce that we licensed 2 of her tunes to The Tessa & Scott show in Canada, “Warriors Tongue” (Rex Riot Remix) was featured on the show in late January 2014 and they liked her music so much that in early February we licensed her tune “Number One Ft Black Molly” to the same show, you can see the clip here:
It’s that sound we all new so well for a while, the one that brought synthesized melodies into Dubstep and early Glitch Hop and made many moments even more epic than they already were, it’s also the sound that to us on the US west coast we called ‘The West Coast Sound’ and it blasted artists like Mimosa, early Eprom music and later on the MartyParty’s of the world into the stratosphere of national touring and had management companies and booking agents clamoring for a piece, while at the same time across the pond all those artists from Bristol UK like Joker, Ginz and Gemmy were perfecting their own blend of melodies and archetypal keyboard sounds and calling it Purple. With many aspiring to it and few doing it succesfully in the years that followed it’s a joy to see and hear Psy Fi come into the fold.
Psy Fi is an artists consumed with melodic anthems and rolling syncopated beats that flow effortlessly. The tunes on his recent EP Odyssey sound like one huge High Five to a universe that does not leave you hanging, it’s a pat on the back to a job well done, that sweet sense of fulfillment after having made it through to to other side after some grueling struggle. Basically the EP sounds like success, in sounds like a victory and we applaud Psy Fi for lifting it up so high.
We were first connected to Trevor Kelly through his collaborations with TASO, his seemingly deep love for all things related to sub frequencies and tough urban beats.
His new release, GalacTech Shift on Muti Music has been hovering in the top 30 of the Beatport Hip-Hop charts and we hope to see this young bass music pioneer take off in 2014.
Here’s a recent interview he did with Music You Need: http://musicyouneed.net/2013/10/31/artist-interview-trevor-kelly/
