TRACK PREMIERE: B. BRAVO “ATOMIC BOUNCE”

L.A. producer and talkbox warrior B. Bravo is one of those guys that puts the bass in back-to-basics. His recent project Kool Customer makes the smoothest hits the 1980s never had, and now he's announcing a new solo EP (scheduled for release on the Bastard Jazz label in June) with a title track dedicated to the fundamentals of funk. If you ever had even the briefest contact with anything Parliament / George Clinton and/or Zapp, you already know exactly what a song called "Atomic Bounce" is gonna be, and you're ready for a double dose of pure uncut speaker-bursting old school jams.

VIDEO PREMIERE: BROKEN LAMPS “RED LIGHT DRIVE”

Eric Bowr's Broken Lamps make soundtracks for movies that never existed and L.A.'s Rendezvous screens movies most people don't know ever existed—so you can see why putting these two things in the same dimly lit room makes for one of the best Friday the 13th outings out there.

VIDEO PREMIERE: BIG DEBBIE “ELECTRIC WATER”

Big Debbie likes to look for the very edge of things, whether during a childhood in the U.S.S.R. absorbing banned new wave music or seeking artistic revelation in punk and noise music in the Bay Area before Big Tech's wrecking spree. New video "Electric Water"—two things you mix together if you want to get a shock—is right on the line where Suicide and John Carpenter meet. (Something astronomers might call the terminator—fitting?)
