Bonus MP3: Blixaboy -- "Lion Eyes (featuring Emil Rapstine of The Angelus)"
Last year, he debuted the Blixaboy moniker as a means to put out his own dubstep-leaning electronic creations, releasing his first long-player, Digital Daze Vol. 1. Today, though, marks the release of his second full-length, called Kliks & Politiks and released on his own Astroblaque label. And it shows some serious growth, too. It's dubstep, sure--Dover's a little obsessed on that front--but more laid-back than other offerings within the genre. And it's nothing if not alluring, both on record and in live settings as Dover, who has already earned the thumbs-up from the so-called Queen of Dubstep, keeps audiences enthralled by jumping back and forth from his MPC to his theremin, as he's (sometimes) accompanied with a live drummer.
An unrelenting, head-spinning collection of various sounds, Kliks & Politiks races along without ever feeling rushed--and, largely, without the accompaniment of vocals. There's one notable exception to that rule, though: the song "Lion Eyes," for which Dover enlisted Emil Rapstine, frontman for local outfit The Angelus, for vocal duties. Dover's been kind enough to pass along that track as a free download to DC9 readers. Grab it after the jump, where you'll also find an embedded player that allows you to stream the new record in full.
