"wanna hear dam funk on steroids?"


          

i present to you MXXWLL. straight outta sydney, australia (represent). this dude plays all the keys/guitars on his tracks... reminds me of dam with more chops and less cheesy vocals

https://soundcloud.com/mxxwllofficial/4u-mxxwll

snoop gave him some love recently, i wouldn't be surprised if he does some production for the dogfather soon.

check out his chops here:

the vid he dedicates to dilla is sick (the fifth vid IIRC)

There's no need for shit like this, the guy's stuff is dope enough to be able to do without the hyperbolic conparisons.

....a hyperbolic statement? Maybe that's how he truly feels. Dude does seem to have more playing skill than Dam.

But the point I'm making calling this guy "Dam Funk on steriods" as a calling card instead of letting the music speak for itself without the fluff posting. It's tacky and doesn't serve the artist he's drumming up support for. He's talented enough on his own.

It's basically like saying he's an amateur. And, count me in the minority, but like mistermaxx pretty much said, having chops and few hot beats ain't enough. And, as much as we may want to deny it, that damn FL piano roll and the influx of sample libraries that sound more true to form than the cheesy patches you had to work with from Korg and Roland back in the day, has allowed this generation of producers to come up with some stuff that sometimes competes with having a studio musician in the room.

I do wish dude luck, though.

Come to grips with the fact that most OKP's are of the Nut Hugger lineage, so, if you' re not part of the little cliques that exist 'round here, your posts will probably tank like Souljaboy's album sales.

All beats and grooves and no songs. as if the industry don't have enough of beat makers these days?

he is a clean sounding cat. however nothing i ain't heard or seen by any number of other catchy 2nd and 3rd tier playing cats.

One timey means he just is a one trick pony to me. catchy, however cat ain't got no songs. he can give you a few grooves and more beats, but no real songs.

This sounds nothing like Dam Funk.

It sounds everything like what's been coming out of Montreal/Vancouver for the past couple years.

I don't follow this scene religiously or anything, but I'm a huge fan of the sound. Bouncy bass, claps, weird phrasing, 80's samples, modern remixes, all that. I have a guy who keeps me semi-updated on shit like this and a LOT of the best stuff (IMO) comes from Canada. Europe comes pretty tough too, but the kids from up north sound funkier.

Thanks for the link, by the way. Wish more of his shit was on sale.
