ND-21 brrrapture & electric teeth - Clipping Remixes

Creeping out of the speakers last year the California group Clipping started fusing rhythmless noise with smart lyricism to fuse the same startling contrast of dälek's most threatening moments. Earlier in 2013 they released their first full-length album, along with pellas and stems.

Naturally the boys in brrrapture and electric teeth had their ears perked up. Bringing their eclectic mix of boom-bap (brrrapture) and soundscapes (electric teeth) to the pellas, both artists took to re-imagining three of clipping’s LP cuts.

Tracks:
01. - Bullshit (brrrapture remix)
02. - Mobb2It (electric teeth remix)
03. - Bout That (brrrapture remix)

ND-11 Ghoul Tooth -MVX OPVLAround a week ago we finally got around to giving the first Ghoul Tooth album (Ghouls Gone Wild) a proper introduction, even though it had been out in the world for consumption for more than a year. As you can see above… there was a reason… to help people get excited for this brand-new release from the boys.
While Ghouls Gone Wild was a breezy and warm celebration of classic techno sounds, MVX OPVL is a completely different beast. While the appreciation for the early and mid-90s techno sounds are still front and center; this time they are clouded by the deep reverb and repetition made famous by the Basic Channel/Chain Reaction labels.
Each track sounds like it is being drug along the bottom of the ocean, catching each bit of flotsam and jetsam along the way. Sounds bubble up and disappear while each bass kick sounds like you’d be wringing it out for hours and it’d still be dripping wet. This leaving a much more challenging listen for adventurous music lovers only.
That’s not to say MVX OPVL isn’t an entertaining piece of work; quite the contrary. When listening to it, especially on headphones, you are sucked right into the world of these sounds. Allowing your brain to fill in the blanks in the intricate soundscapes presented by the skillful hands of Ghoul Tooth. So if you are ready for this deep sea adventure just grab your scuba gear and click on the link below to begin.

ND-20 Ghoul Tooth - Ghouls Gone WildIf you’ve been paying attention to our SoundCloud than this is far from a new release for you, but if you haven’t gone browsing over there now you have a reason why… uploaded almost a year ago, Ghoul Tooth’s Ghouls Gone Wild is a minimalistic gem of field recordings, electronic bleeps and bloops, and unique ideas that wash over you again and again and again lulling you into submission.While never coming at you too hard, this collection isn’t satisfied sitting in the background either. Sounds are twisted inside one another and appear in brief flashes that, if you’re blinking your ears at the wrong time, you just might miss.This might be the perfect antidote for people coming down from their New Year’s highs. And the best part? You can stream and download the tracks for free.https://soundcloud.com/neondoom/sets/ghoul-tooth-ghouls-gone-wild

Maybe not considered an official release… more a curiosity. Recently, one half of NRIII appeared on the radio show Lost in the Stacks on the Jacksonville, FL, NPR station WJCT. The interview (including original mixes of songs by the artist) was then recorded from the radio on a handheld radio and stretched, reverbed, and echoed out into a nearly three hour ambient soundscape. If you’re going to bootleg your own interview, there is a much better or more creative way to do it. So if you have three hours to kill and need good mood music… here you are.

ND-10 – Hot Mess – It’s Cool Man, Don’t Worry
In a way it is sort of funny that is has taken us to our 10th physical release before we got around to (re)introducing the world to HOT MESS. You see… if there were no Hot Mess, there wouldn’t be a Neon Doom. This little put-putting of a Website/Record Label/Digital Stew originally had a different home and was created as a way to introduce people to the music, art, shows, and sounds of robad pills, Louie Applesauce, and their collaboration.
Some how, when bringing together the intricate breakcore and drum and bass of robad pills with the noise and sound experimentation of Louie Applesauce, Hot Mess found the common ground of house music in all of its forms. From strictly hardware and live instrument tracks to sequencers and studio production, the boys of Hot Mess weaved wildly into whatever idea scattered across their brain.

As their ideas gained more and more focus, new names and projects started to bubble up and pick apart the splatter output of the original Hot Mess name. With High School Clicks, Muscle Boys, Ghoul Tooth, cauldrone, wizards, Electric Teeth, brrrapture, moth mouth, MOBB CREEP, etc.etc.etc. Hot Mess was reborn again and again and again.
But this collection comes from when the boys were just starting to work together again after a number of years (and a musical lifetime) apart. From 2008-2010 Hot Mess were paving their own path four steps ahead of everyone else. By the time the world caught up… Hot Mess proper was over. These 13 tracks lead you down 77 minutes of hijinks and fun that are sure to keep the party going.

ND-19- brrrapture xxx Electric Teeth - Danny Brown RemixesSometimes when you break apart a duo you can truly hear what both parts bring to the collective whole. As a fun side experiment, brrrapture and Electric Teeth, the two guys behind High School Clicks/Hot Mess/Ghoul Tooth and other Neon Doom mainstays took on a variety of Danny Brown instrumentals from his “XXX” album and the contributions they bring to their duo projects are pushed directly to the forefront of the proceedings, even if unintentionally.With brrrapture you hear dynamic professionalism, tracks that take the idea of the source material and create their own sound that would still perfectly inhabit the world of underground, heavy hitting hip-hop. More than just an imitation; you can see how with just a turn of a sound brrrapture is able to fully inhabit the genre like any of the producers featured on the Danny Brown original.With Electric Teeth you here the sloppy abstractionism of the sound. Like a child happily breaking apart songs into giant puzzle pieces and gleefully throwing them into the air and trying to put them back together however they fall. Like a self sabotage, you can tell Electric Teeth fully understands the genre and what should be done to make it successfully, but that he does not have the patience of interest in accommodating any listener but himself and the people who share his head space.Smashing these production styles together and the perfect balance creating in their duo projects makes perfect sense. It helps that the final product of this EP is also pretty fun to listen to over and over again as well.

ND-09 - NRIII - Spat UponWhen a band releases three EPs in just as many months it can be kind of hard to find new ways to introduce them to the audience. Luckily, the three EPs from NRIII have been such unique sounds and visions that they sort of define themselves.It is the sound of an artist(s) molting. Growing in real time to advance and explore the different sounds and ideas rattling around in their head to find themselves in a new place at the other side of the tunnel. The last of these growth EPs comes in the form of “Spat Upon”, four tracks that seem to bring together the sounds of the first two EPs and bring them into a stunning context. The use of space, broken down and put back together sounds, and even haunting violin show amazing progress from r.reno and r.pitts.If this helps define the direction they are going into for the next full length. Consider me hooked.

ND-08 - Whimsical Fetus - Instant Instructions for Those Who Follow No Master The final release in the current batch of Whimsical Fetus reissues and it is one of my favorites. The original Instant Instructions was record in 2002 and consisted of 6-tracks at just over 20-minutes. A lot of them were experiments in sound and space using abused synthesizers and tape loops. Two of the tracks, however, were lost to time and were not able to be included in this release.So what did we here at Neon Doom do?We dug into the archives and found two similarly minded tracks to replace them. One from 2001, which is an 18-minute exercise that would fit right in on an early Conrad Schnitzler album and the other is a 40-minute drone experiment from 2010, which also happens to be the very last recording the band ever performed. (You can listen to this song by going a bit further back on this blog or visiting our soundcloud.)It all equals out to a 72-minute, jam packed synthesizer adventure for the senses. https://www.createspace.com/2060720
