Mad Zach - Out of Body EP Splatter Vinyl Edition
Mad Zach
Out of Body EP Splatter Vinyl Edition
12" | 2018 | US | Original (Alpha Pup)
18,99 €*
Release:2018 / US – Original
Genre:Electronic / Dance
Feel the rush of energy radiating from Mad Zach’s “Out of Body,” the artist’s first release for Alpha Pup. Four intense tracks balance on their edges between perfectly placed off-beats and third eye-popping sonics. Based in Berlin, Mad Zach is a San Francisco native and festival favorite known for his prodigious productions and extensive touring schedule over the past few years. His finely honed craftsmanship is well matched with his brilliant imagination and undeniable style. “’Out of Body’ is meant to help catalyze a sound experience which is less focused on the ego and more about guiding you into a world of light beings and wormholes,” explains Zach. The EP fuses inspiration from Berlin’s techno world with a background in West Coast bass. Tracks feel fresh and experimental yet still pull you in with their sticky-sweet, almost viscous jams. “The musical idea behind this was to implement some of the strange loop concepts from my psychedelic explorations with the hypnotic techno themes and bass heavy 160 grooves that I'm really inspired by. I wanted to create something that could be hypnotic and at times intense, while remaining sexy and booty maneuvering.” “Dark Street” hovers hypnotically, growing larger and more alive with every new layer. Snares are set loose in “Drawing Blood” to chase down a hyped-up, high-speed buzz. Stare into the flames to spin with the serpentine “Shadow Figures” – a tripped-out tribal groove for late-night dance floor meditation. Heat rises out of “Trunk Junk” and sets the speakers on fire with a fleshy dose of delicious bass. Digging in deep with writhing rhythms and precisely designed percussion, every track is a sinuous showcase of Mad Zach’s expert finesse and raw appeal.
Woolymammoth - Filling Spots
Woolymammoth
Filling Spots
LP | 2018 | US | Original (Alpha Pup)
21,99 €*
Release:2018 / US – Original
Genre:Electronic / Dance
Los Angeles transplant Woolymammoth has signed with Alpha Pup Records this year for the release of his debut full-length album Filling Spots. Scheduled to release March 23rd across vinyl, CD, and digital formats, the fifteen track LP follows up a handful of singles and EPs since 2016. His music finds a bridge between experimental electronic and future bass, splicing together intricate rhythm schemes, raw synth tones, dynamic sample work, and much more. Woolymammoth's origins in San Francisco and the new community he has helped breed in Los Angeles find union in his craft, encapsulating a wide of spectrum of subdued and explosive moments. The totality of Filling Spots contains this immersive affect, blending as one statement from track to track and giving the listener a journey that is constantly shifting. His bass-centric experiments churn and convulse under the surface, pulling you into a full-body listen. Avant-garde abstractions bubble beside strange samples, throwing tracks off balance again and again. “Mouthbreather” is disturbingly catchy and “Shadeslove” swims in a hypnotic stew of sounds. “Mustard (feat. Yokaze)” snaps into a quick-rolling mind melt, while “Riskybidness (feat. Tsuruda)” slips chaos between its beats. “Nofknway [124]UMTME (feat. Bleep Bloop)” bolts off in a blur of upbeats and pummels the brain into a sonic black hole. Touring for the young producer has seen rapid development, performing at some of the worlds premiere experimental festivals and venues before the age of 21. Filling Spots is a summarization of this path and the many states of evolution Woolymammoth has gone through as a musician. Writing and recording for the new album was captured in part on the road, with the other portions sourced at his home studio in L.A. Working with Eurorack modular system owner and Tsuruda's roommate Zach Countryman, Woolymammoth pulled from various oscillator modules within the instrument to build a world of sound all his own.
Odd Nosdam - LIF Deluxe Edition
Odd Nosdam
LIF Deluxe Edition
Tape | 2017 | US | Original (Alpha Pup)
9,99 €*
Release:2017 / US – Original
Genre:Electronic / Dance
Deluxe edition includes exclusive cassette-only tracksConfusion. Longing. Confidence. Loneliness. Fear. Love. These are but a few of the emotional states absorbed when encountering LIF, the new ambient and minimal album from the Bay Area's Odd Nosdam. As an artist that's presented sonic portraits coalesced in the legacy he's carried with the co-founding of Anticon, LIF finds connectivity to new roads and ethos within the body of electronic. A bridge to universal emotions and boldness, displayed in a state of duality with the tenderness and delicacy of a dandelion and the power and magnetism of solar winds.Creating some of the world's most respected experimental music of the 21st century, Odd Nosdam is still climbing mountains through this phase of his career, adding to the spiritual body of the electronic genre and keeping the sound of the Bay embedded at the core. This is an ascension that initiated with his last LP Music For Raising, drawing together raw tones, complex shapes, and vivid color schemes into interwoven auditory bliss. A medium where drums are removed from the canvas and the imagination stretches to the infinite. Sourcing a bulk of his most well known releases through groups cLOUDDEAD, Reaching Quiet, and the various Anticon compilations and solo releases, LIF was created in a state of foundation pouring.The sound of LIF can be described as the continuation and expansion of Music For Raising, blistering with analog loop chains that soak in the resonance of tremolo, tape-delay, space echo, distressors, and many other trusted devices in Odd Nosdam's toolkit. Very little computer processing occurred during the making of LIF, relying heavily on hand triggered elements that cycle into an endless bridge between pulsing loops and shape shifting overtones. Imagine a horizon where sunrays find traces of openness around gloomy backdrops of clouds, organically centered as a jump off point into another realm of existence.LIF was recorded during a unique stretch of time, put together between January and March 2017 when the Bay Area was experiencing a stretch of nonstop rain fall. The earth's cleansing process compelled Odd Nosdam to create sound that would mirror the emotional states his environment was providing. Each loop pulls the listener into that atmosphere, drenched by the rains and winds of the west coast as the album cycles through multiple repeated listens. Another important source of influence is the works of sound sculpting master William Basinski, and particularly, the breathtaking forty minute experience known as "DLP 6" (from The Disintegration Loops IV). Building loops on LIF that reflects the raw, rustic and atonal landscapes Basinski cleverly devised by capturing old tape loops degrading live, Odd Nosdam finds the same sonic territory by his own means and vision. A musical road map that the adventurous and creative souls of this era are paving with a sense of oneness.

Release:2018 / US – Original
Genre:Electronic / Dance
Drenched in a sonic viscosity that infuses every beat with its own personality, Slush is the new album by GOD.DAMN.CHAN on Alpha Pup Records. It’s a surrealist playland of unexpected twists where beats slide sideways, fuzz up, float away, and clump together deliciously on top of sticky-sweet basslines. “It’s kind of a coming-of-age record,” explains GOD.DAMN.CHAN, aka Channing Day. “It represents a change.” Day’s recent adventures have been fueled by change. In November 2017, he packed up and moved to California, driving to Los Angeles from his hometown of Portland, Maine with his girlfriend and his dog. Day’s new album Slush references the frozen home he left behind. “I moved from a place that’s really cold to a place that’s never cold. Calling it Slush is tongue-in-cheek a little bit, especially because I got out of Maine right before the winter.” A longtime fan of Daddy Kev, the new transplant became connected with the LA beat community about a year and a half ago after submitting his music for a Low End Theory Beat Invitational. He was contacted shortly afterward by DJ Nobody, and later played the club night in May 2016. Mixed and engineered by Day in Portland before he left, Slush represents the culmination of a year’s work. “I stuck to my guns more on this release, and also tried elaborate on everything more than I would have. All the stuff that’s on the album is pretty personal to me.”

Release:2017 / US – Original
Genre:Hip Hop
Find a moment of clarity. ¡Eureka! is the new LP on Alpha Pup from Eureka the Butcher, a collection of intense, involved tracks with deliberate arrangements and undefinable style.Artists and searchers long for that “eureka” moment – an illuminated instance of clear purpose and pure focus. For Eureka the Butcher, as for many, the light follows the dark:“I wrote a lot of this album at a very dark time in my life. I’d lost some very important people in my life and I was at my most insecure, personally and musically speaking. I had to remember where I come from, who I’d learned from. I was at a low point and I hadn’t been applying my culture and my upbringing to my everyday life. But then I had a moment of clarity, and I started to feel better. I began remembering that I come from an incredible place, raised and taught by incredible people. Then I made some drastic decisions, including moving to Los Angeles. I also had a eureka moment in terms of workflow and approach.”The album’s multifaceted nature reflects Eureka’s diverse inspiration. Modular synth music of the ‘60s and ‘70s. LA’s rap, electronic, beat, and bass music scene. Hardware used to create the album dominates its sonic profile, from synthesizers and outboard compressors to live percussion and tape delays.“But the biggest influence is the music I grew up with: salsa, psychedelic rock, progressive rock, and fusion. These types of music taught me how to play… I gravitated towards what I know: psychedelia, fast bass, synth lines, Caribbean rhythms and extremely tight relationships between interwoven parts.”

Release:2017 / US – Original

Alpha Pup Records announces the release of Mast’s second full length album “Love and War_”. “Love and War_” is a highly conceptual and deeply personal new work based on jazz trained multi-instrumentalist Mast aka Tim Conley's eventful love life over the last 2 years. Set up as a three Act Play structure (traditionally the Setup, the Confrontation and the Resolution) “Love and War_” is 17 intense and unique compositions each flowing into the next with recurring musical themes or "characters.” Conley tells the story of (Act 1) finding love and the beauty and naivety that comes with exploring something new; (Act 2) losing that love due to her substance abuse, deception and Conley coping in unhealthy ways; (Act 3) learning to let go, heal and ultimately find a much deeper lasting love. The tone Conley sets is sometimes sarcastic, other times vulnerable and intimate, yet always musically intense and profoundly visual. Mixed and mastered by the luminary Daddy Kev, who was recently nominated for a Grammy for his production work with Kendrick Lamar and Flying Lotus. Daddy Kev is known as co-founder of the legendary "Low End Theory" club night, label head of Alpha Pup Records and directly responsible for the rise of the LA beat scene which includes Flying Lotus, Thundercat and Kamasi Washington.

Every song has itsown sub-world, connected through the diversity of his past worksand the futuristic voyage he continues to embark on.Dreamy and dense, with plenty of juice and vigor – Textures is athoughtfully intelligent venture into the far-out realm of the modernbeat music movement

The artist’svaporous falsetto free-floats over an impetuous low end throughoutthe album, shimmering pale with passion as a moody guitarsearches for solace. Newborn tracks evolve from elegant simplicityinto complex emotional beings, molten mutations of discord andexperimentation.“Birth Archive” soothes as it stimulates, luring the listener into thedissonance with unbridled design. “Entwined” is apprehensiveyet approachable, and unspeakable anguish inhabits “Hiss of theWomb.” Impossibly light and intensely moving, “Aporia” slips throughviscous echoes into a spellbound state. “At Dusk / New Sun” facesyou like fate, pensive and shadowed, decaying in order to transform.Lacerated with emotion, Sightless, Unless goes far beyond wordsto touch the truths of humanity whose unending glare we trydesperately to avoid. It is an expression of exquisite existential painand disturbing beauty, created by an artist whose intricate talent hasmarked a new space in the post-genre sphere.
