Most dance producers are following the same formulas, it's no big secret. It worked for disco, then house, and it continues to produce in 2010. I never liked math class much but London's Mosca seems to be a resident professor and Damn Zun™ is offering his 10 minute course below. Let's take a look at the syllabus.
We'll start with an introduction to future hip hop. It slinks, it stutters, it knocks and it begs for an edit with an acapella dropped on top.
The synths bend just perfectly sounding like a scattered musical seizure as the drums transform...a taste of the uptempo mathematics to come. And here it is: the 4/4 kick ushers us into some dubbed out dance accompanied by voices of unknown origins and just a touch of sub bass. Before I get carried away and write a dissertation on Nike, go ahead and check for yourself. Mosca is one of the most exciting new producers out there right now, making music with utter disregard for genre pigeonholing. The young lad's debut release will be out this month on Night Slugs with remixes coming from Bok Bok, L-Vis 1990, Roska, Greena, and more.

Would You Mind Derobing?

My man Joy Orbison coming so hard, yet with such finesse. This is the sound of UK underground blasted off into space and returning as a glitchy garage hybrid. Exclusive you zuns. The only other person rocking this track right now is ONEMAN who included it in his most recent mix - which I may or may not have ripped this from ;) Points if you name the track creeping in at the end.

Check for Joy Orbison's debut EP to be released on Doldrums Recordings in early 2010. But until then stream 'So Derobe' below:
