Have you just discovered the wonders of Glitch Hop and are wondering where you can go to get some quality Glitch pumping out of your speakers?
Well I’ve done the legwork for you – here are 5 of the top Glitch Hop producers out there.
5. Dewey dB
Glitchtastic track of choice: The Adventures of Albert the Giraffe
With his unique laid back Dubstep-Glitch hop, Dewey dB is more than a clever name! He combines the wubby dub with some the stuttery glitches to make some seriously head-noddable tunes.
Be sure to check out his collaboration with ill-esha “H.A.A.R.P.” too, it’s pretty sweet!
Glitchtastic track of choice: Cherry Blossoms
Occasionally verging on what sounds to me like a Bond Theme sound file that someone attacked with a pair of digital scissors, ill-esha certainly has an original style about her music.
She also sings over her tracks too. I love to see multi-talented musicians so that’s a bonus! (She can actually sing too – even better!)
3. Glitchy and Scratchy
Glitchtastic track of choice: Embeddit
Mosty aptly put by an awesome interview I found with the guys; “Like A Robot Having Sex With Mc Hammer”. Glitch Hop with the emphasis on the Hop. They definately bring the Hip Hop vibe, layering it with timestretched vocals, glitches and some awesome synths to complete their style.
Plenty of Glitching, but no scratching in any of the tracks I heard though, which is kinda false advertising
2. ill Gates (aka the Phat Conductor)
Glitchtastic track of choice: Collateral Damage
Ranging from tracks like Collateral Damage with brings a tipper-esque wobble to the table, to really danceable tracks, The Phat Conductor certainly has versatility! He sure loves his blips and clicks, you can hear them dotted around the beats of most of ill Gates’ tracks!
Have a listen through the tracks on his myspace and you’ll see what I mean, each track has a definate identity, it’s awesome. Once again, he’s an artist who seems to be making the jump from Dubstep to Glitch Hop. And Back. The combination of the genres is really powerful!
And the number 1 Glitch Hop artist…
1. The Glitch Mob
Glitchtastic track of choice: TVOTR – Red Dress Remix
Comprising 3 Glitch Hop DJs: EdIT, Boreta and Ooah, The Glitch Mob is right at the forefront of Glitch Hop. Pushing the boundaries and generally being more prolific than any other Glitch Hop producers on the scene.
The reason they are number one though is the quality of their productions. It really shows the effort they put in, the interesting intricacy of the music, the heavy beats and the sometimes gorgeous melodies. Definately the number one Glitch Hop artists.
