Cut on Digging.

San Diego Swervin

Hello everybody, this is Lino, reporting live from sunny San Diego. Shantan has recruited me to post some music on here to increase the global presence of his Stolen Records empire. I’ll start by showcasing some tunes from the underrated beat scene around SD.

Freddie Joachim

Download: Q-Tip – For the Nasty (Freddie Joachim Remix)

Freddie has been releasing records since 2006 and djing since 96. He definitely shows a throwback jazz influence, and on the whole his songs are just pleasing to listen to. It’s like sitting in the park on a warm day with a wine festival in the background. Definitely cop his releases on iTunes, but also peep his remix work that he regularly releases for free.

Question

Question – Kush

Question is definitely in the same realm of Joachim, displaying strong instrumental arrangements that stand up on their own without any vocals. He is also an OG in the DJ game, spinning records since the early 90’s, and regularly releases fine tunes on his bandcamp. His sound is like two stepping at a jazz club on five dollar gin and juice night.

Mike Gao X Ta-ku

Download: Mike Gao – Ausgangsta (Ta-ku Remix)

Last but not least, Mike is the mad genius behind using beat boxing as a midi controller and tetris shapes as a jazz chord generator. His compositions show a technical flair, in that I am often mystified as to how he gets his chops to sound how they sound and his drums to swing how they swing. Since I am in California posting on this Oz based blog, I figured it was only right to post Gao’s song remixed by beat maestro from Perth, Taku.
