Suicide Sundaes – Stop your grinnin' and drop your linen, Sunday is back. Greg is here to bring you the week's dirty servings, and some old favorites through a throwdown-throwback to simpler times. A time when bangers were big, remixes were bigger, the bassline bled, and we didn't care about anything as long as came in kicking and left screaming.
Welcome to 2013 people, and the first Suicide Sundaes post of the year. This is going to be a crazy year for SS and for everything in general; that is my prediction. Anyways, as many of you have noticed, Suicide Sundaes has changed a bit since its start, but so has the music along with it throughout the years. Times change, music changes, sometimes for the good, sometimes for the bad; regardless, my goal, as always, is to continue to find the best electro/dirty electro/awesomely badass synthy music there is to find.
A quick rundown for those who may be new to this post: the Sprinkles section is aimed at bringing you the softer, more melodic, more synthy electro out there at the moment. Think '80s influence, as that's often what I shoot for.
The Scoops section is going to be your harder, louder, glitchier electo/electro trash–sometimes orchestral, sometimes leaning more towards French or Italian electro rather than pure electro trash. At times you may find elements of dubstep, house, and even techno bleeding into both categories but this is sometimes hard to avoid with the genres constantly borrowing from each other. Regardless, my goal is, and always has been, to focus on finding that killer track, even if the genre doesn’t exactly match up. For me it's always been more about the "sound" and the "feeling" a track projects than the genre.
The Streams section is going to be (you guessed it) streaming tracks straight from Soundcloud that I am not able to provide mp3 downloads to, for various reasons. This section encompasses a bit of both Sprinkles and Scoops, usually beginning with the Sprinkles.
With the sections in mind I try to keep the flow of music going by starting off slower in the post and ending with a heavier climax, making sure each track flows into the next as smoothly as possible.
Also, for those of you who have ever wanted to work on a post like Suicide Sundaes, this is your lucky day. We are looking for some additional help on SS finding the best tracks each week so we can make sure to deliver the best quality posts without any unnecessary delays. So if you have an ear for the music that SS showcases and you have the time and the drive to deliver the best of the best each week, fill out this quick application. Who knows–your music picks could be right up here for the world to see in no time.
And don't forget–if you're a producer and you want to see if your music has what it takes to be on Suicide Sundaes, submit your mp3s to our SoundCloud group. We'll take a listen and include the best tracks. Please submit only one or two tracks at a time (320kbps mp3s) and please try to keep the tracks limited to what you may hear on one of our SS posts (ie. no hiphop, trap, etc.).
Now on to the music (I'll keep it short so your ears can be the judge):
This week is one hell of a post including remixes by Vicetone, Bestrack, Barretso, Nation, Wolf Saga, Monument & GLock, Cut & Slice, and Speaker of the House. Also coming your way this week are originals from Fatso, Savant, ill Saint M, STRNGR, Distantt and a mashup of Ellie Goulding's “Lights” and Wolfgang Gartner's “Love & War” by Dj Untz that I just had to include, plus much more.
