Promo: Midnight Smack – Knowledge Eater

Nick Siamas makes really interesting music. For anyone that doesn’t (in particular) like hip-hop, I wouldn’t waste my time with this, otherwise. I’ve been coming back to him on a regular basis, since his releases come out pretty frequently. Earlier, he’s released “Feline Sleepwear” and two other releases, but he’s also been featured on a compilation. But the aforementioned release is probably what I know him from, at least. His beats are chopped up and repetetive, but together they create an atmosphere that is hard to come by without that certain feature. This album is, however, one of the less crazy and more atmosphere-oriented pieces he’s put out yet. Now it sounds like a mix in between beats, psychedelic environments and some kind of drumstep – closely attached to a d’n’b kind of thing. Mix that with the regularity of trip-hop and what crazy vibes you’d get from that particular sphere of music. Yes, it’s a sample-laden bomb that will blow your speakers out, but at least listen to the baselines and quirky rhythms that form together with one another, to create an intricate melody. Now, we’re ready for what the name of this release actually is. It’s “Knowledge Eater“, and with it, Nick Siamas takes his Midnight Smack project to a whole other level. Stream it freely down below and enjoy. You can also download the whole shebang for free.

Promo: Various Artists – Smoke Signals Remixing Smoke Signals

One of the returning artists on this blog, at least when it comes to promotion, have been Midnight Snack. Apparently, he’s a part of a collective called Smoke Signals, which consists of him and artists such as: RxN, Mathbonus, Gelido, Lab 5, SchoolofThought, Astrobear, Chaos Kid and Hominidae. Even though futurebeat, dubstep and the likes of it isn’t my cup of tea, it might be yours. This is the second compilation that they’ve created together, which in turn was an initiative for those involved to remix each others songs. You’ll hear everything from twisted beats, to illuminated choruses, in this world where craziness will appear from thin air. Everything basically has its fundamental roots in hip-hop, which is noticeable. This makes it the only thing in that genre that I can endorse, if you ignore Midnight Smack. Head on over to their bandcamp-page, or stream this compilation in its entirety down below.

Midnight Smack releases a new track!

Otherwise known by the alias of “Midnight Smack“, he’s currently released a track which will serve as a preview from his coming album “Knowledge Eater“. Even though Justin Timberlake is abhorrent as an artist, there’s a sincere touch in the remixes which Nicholas Siamas produce. Therefore, with no further due, I present to you: “Justin Timberlake – Tunnel Vision (Midnight Smack Remix)“. I haven’t really indulged in the original song, but it’s definitely an improvement of what I’ve heard, and had to endure, when it comes to music. Think of a somnambulist beast, suddenly awoken, squeezed through a merger including some sweet drum & bass – with an extremely raved up sound. Which is what you’ll have to expect, if you take me on my words for this. Listen to the remix down below and remember; you can also download it for free.
