Spaced-out bouncy things sit on the horizon at San Francisco-based OM Records. As one of the biggest indie labels in the US, Om has set the pace for many trends and movements in the dance music arena. In step with the times they seem to be following the fusion of hip-hop and techno that is sweeping many scenes from dubstep to M.I.A. to Kid Cudi’s recent collaboration with Kanye West. OM is coming out to the races strong with a lineup of artists that inludes: Amp Live (Zion I), Bassnectar, Greenskeepers/James Curd, Trackademicks (Fools Gold) and Micro Jaxson. They have released the first single, “Gary is a Robot” by Amp Live as of Friday and it seems to be getting great buzz. The track is easy to love with robot themes, cute rhymoes, vocoders, bouncy 120bmpm pace and new-school cosmic style.
Chicago’s James Curd aka Greenskeepers (as a band) seems to have fun things in store for us on Child’s Play as well. He’s always been known to rock a mean bassline and house groove but James Curd seems to be putting even more fun into the mix lately. He’s got a viral video on YouTube that features scenes from Twilight edited to his new track “Vampire Dan” (awesome name.) Check out the video below…
