Sound That Speaks Volumes

Plastician is no stranger to the Miami Dubstep scene, his phenomenal performance at the legendary Laundry Bar back in 2007 set the stage for regular dubstep events in Miami. He performed at Candyland 13 along side Hatcha and is a 3 time Winter Music Conference veteran.

Plastician's May mixes have been a staple for the dubstep hardcore every year since 2005 and 2010 is no exception.

This is what the Plastic Man had to say -

“I decided to rename the mix series because a lot of people stumble across the May Mix as its found its way around the internet over the years, and I’m often asked “where is this month’s mix” or “where is the october 2008 mix”. To avoid confusion and hopefully to help stamp the fact that this is an annual occurence, I’ve decided to name the mix “Sound That Speaks Volumes” this year is the 2010 edition obviously.”

“Expect some really fresh stuff on there this year, with a nice blend of grime back on the menu for 2010. As always expect this to be a mix of the years’ biggest tracks and a healthy selection of stuff I anticipate to blow up the second half of the year.”

“Big up everyone for the support over the last 5 years and I hope you enjoy “Sound That Speaks Volumes 2010 as much as you’ve enjoyed the previous annual mixes.”

Machinedrum Comes To Get Low

Thursday, May 20th, Get Low will march to the beat of a different drum... the beat of Machinedrum. We're really excited to bring you this booking, and we know you'll love his style. Somejerk recently put up a couple mixes on his Pattern Awareness blog, make sure you get those. Read all about Machinedrum after the sick video below...

Travis Stewart's debut Machinedrum album "Now You Know" was released early 2001 on the influential Miami based Merck Records and gained the attention and praise of musicians, fans and critics world wide. It was heralded as the "standard to which the next wave of imitators aspires" by Pitchfork. Since then he has toured around the world performing in places like the Sydney Opera House of Australia, Star Pinez in Tokyo, Bush Music Hall in London, and the Nokia Theater in Times Square.

Now with 9 albums under his belt Travis is a force to be reckoned with. His newest album as Machinedrum titled "Want to 1 2?" was released on the New York City based label Normrex in may 2009 and focuses on changing the face of what we now know as Pop by fusing current pop music standards and trends with his extensive knowledge of experimental production techniques. The Want to 1 2 sound could be described as a combination of the pop songwriting skills of Timbaland, the huge club sound of Daft Punk and the crafty experimentation of Aphex Twin. Travis has done official remixes for a wide variety of artists like Johnny Cash, Solange, Sound Tribe Sector 9, Tiesto, Mochipet, Edit and more.

“Machinedrum is the best producer you've never heard.”
