The Gaslamp Killer “Flange Face/Seven Years of Bad Luck for Fun” | Brainfeeder
Welcome to your evil, Turkish nightmare.
But it’s the sort of nightmare you don’t really want to wake up from because it’s just so damn fascinating. Fuzzy, skittle beats layer themselves over future fold hell fire bleeps made by what sounds like an evil android losing his goddamn mind inside of a video game arcade all the while a pack of psychedelic L.S.D. drenched Turkish musicians follow his ass around and… yeah.
It’s an incredible single release with an equally refreshing alternative take (for the infamous and growing to be legendary Low End Theory Club). Something so refreshing that you’ve gotta’ ask yourself, “what the hell is up with 2012 and beats, huh?” Some of the finest beats are being put out this year, O.G. compilations layered around brilliance and originality.
“Flange Face” features virtuoso Miguel Atwood-Ferguson on strings, layering intricate almost future Jefferson’s Bollywood strings over the mad scientists evil monster.
“Seven Years of Bad Luck for Fun” features Dimlite. Gaslamp and Dimlite go in deeper into the nightmare odyssey bringing out cyborg hip-hop like never before. Seriously, this track slays and rapes entire continents with one single listen.
If “Flange Face” and “Seven Years of Bad Luck for Fun” are merely the tip of the iceberg on The Mother Fucking Gaslamp Killer’s new record, then I think we are all in for an epic grimy dirt hop delight that will definitely top lists all across the board for 2012 and beyond.
