The Casual Sexists – Karakara EP

The Casual Sexists are back with a brand new EP, “Karakara” released 11th August on Feral Media. Spiking their pop cocktail with skulking dancehall rhythms and minimalistic electro-funk, The Casual Sexists bring the combination to a dizzying high with this new EP.
The title track places a pitiful but tenacious stalker in the Casuals’ crosshairs, torn apart by Varrick in sardonic and sultry tones against a musical backdrop of speaker-rattling basslines, lo-fi percussion and a maddeningly catchy chorus.
The fractured funk jalopy that is “Curse” finds Varrick and Ed confronting the mixed feelings of sustained disillusionment and fleeting triumph inherent in the creative process—whilst wryly noting the slight absurdity of applying such lofty dramatics to their DIY milieu.
Third and final is “Pop Music”, a celebration of one of the Casuals’ very favourite things, yakked with detached glee over an angular electro rhythm littered with samples and some very janked-up percussion.
For the as-yet-unfamiliar, The Casual Sexists began their musical life in London before relocating to Varrick’s native NYC, where they make music using a computer along with various domestic objects, animal sounds and the overwhelming madness of the world at large.
Grab the EP on the 11th HERE and in the mean time check out the video for Karakara, its worth it for Ed Zeds dancing alone!

Stompin’ To The 90’s

The main man behind TheLeftHandSide, LongDistanceDan, has just finished a new party mix of purely 90’s tunes. Mixing up classic hip hop, trip hop, big beat, rave, indie, and more, it’s an eclectic, party friendly mix, great for this time of year. Dan has used tracks that people will know and love, without resorting to anything too cheesy. So sit back, relax and enjoy a trip back in time.
