Here is a bunch of audio from Fader Fest. I saw a tweet from Kwote about this, Big up Kwote. Tons of good stuff here:
Cosmic Parasite is a collaboration between Dj Quest, Eddie Def & Dj Que. Quest cuts it up over beats & pieces put together by Eddie Def and more drums & such by Dj Cue. The album is clearly intended to be listened to from beginning to end like a nice mixtape. The individual tracks could stand on their own but when their put together its so damn good. It will be available on iTunes & other digi shops on October 31. Check a track from Cosmic Parasite & the links below.
From the Press Release:
A soundscape and glimpse into a future world -created using traditional and modern hip-hop instruments; turntable, sampler, drum machines, synths and digital multi-track. The raw materials for this project were recorded and compiled by DJ Eddie Def who sampled a wide range of pre-recorded and stock sounds; drums, tones, dialog and pieces employing the use of an MPC2000, Korg MS2000, Roland MC505 and a random source of vinyl and movie clips. He then supplied Quest with a series of stems, beats, breaks, loops and fragments. Quest then conceptualized the vision for this sound-track by sculpting and shaping the crude sounds and arranging sections with scratching solos and combos using various techniques both complex and old school -played according with what the musical segment called for, placing them in their corresponding space to achieve the right dynamic intensity. At times remixing, over-lapping, re-tuning and of course cutting up the series of sounds provided by Eddie Def as well as his own selection of 'tweaks' and effects from his personal library. The work in progress was later passed on to DJ Cue who layered it with saucy beat programing and textural overdubs using AbletonLive which added a subtle high quality sonic presence to the mix. Last, Quest defined the multi-sonic puzzle and brought it together with final over-dubs and mixes arranged in a non traditional form but in a flow-form which dictates the next part of the song to follow naturally without the need to cater for vocal or lyrical content giving this recording it's sound-track value. The over-all finished product is an electro-funk/sci-fi/industrial -turntable and machine composition with sound-track/mix tape 'feel' to keep you on the edge of your ear.
Scratched, mixed & composed by DJ Quest
beats & pieces by DJ Eddie Def, additional drum programing and over-dubs by DJ Cue
Due to some type of lapse in brain function I haven't posted about this album. I got the 12" several months ago but never managed to say peep about it. I was having a look at nozlrecordings.com & noticed the digi version is now available. Anyway here it is the latest from Deviant & Naive Ted. Send In The Hounds is good music made with records...
Have a listen, check the links below. The 12" is still available or name your price digi. Highly Recommended.
A bit of info from the bandcamp page:
Deviant & Naive Ted make skratch music. Unadulterated by synthesizers, untouched by guitars, not a delay pedal in sight. Records and hands. Turntable and mixer. Loop pedal and multi-tracker. Why? They’re not sure.
"The psychedelic Soundsations of Mike Colossal." It is cut and paste deejaying like Cut Chemist, Madlib, Tommy Guerrero, but sounds like 1968 instrumental psychedelic music.
I have a few vinyl copies, or you can get the digi on bandcamp. Considering the sound & style of this album, I'd recommend the vinyl for the best listening experience.
David Vangel's latest album, 'Breadth Control', is out now on Equinox Records. This album is a mixture of sampling & live instruments. I've listened to this album several times over the past two weeks. It is an amazing album, the kind you want to throw on the turntable and let it go. Its available in vinyl, digi & CD. If you've seen any other Equinox Records releases the presentation is really cool, get the vinyl. You can order it at a bunch of online shops, see the Equinox link below for a list. Check the video & mega mix below.

Some info from the press release:
'Breadth Control' a mind altering affair loaded with emotive melodies, explosive dynamics,
and savage gauntlets of fierce drum programming. Raising the bar, the 13-track collection
is a fusion of sampling and live instrumentation, including elements of hiphop, jazz, indie
rock, electronic, gentle psychedelia, and even world music. A musical experience that is the intermingling of genres, the debut LP is the future of electronic music from the brain of one
of Canada’s most prominent sound pioneers.
