100wxxds presents: W33DW∆V3

Sweden

Enigmatic Swede beatmaker 100wxxds drops 4 tracks described as ‘weedwave’, and explains a bit about the dude behind the PC, the name 100wxxds, and weedwave as a genre.

100wxxds says:

Bio: I’m a 24 year old weirdo that makes ‘weedwave’ music. I currently reside in Sweden.

Name: Ok, so I’m from Sweden right?  And in Sweden we’ve got tons of woods, so I thought, what better way to represent where I’m from than to add the woods (wxxds) part to my name. The x instead of o makes it just look doper I guess. Haha!

Influences: Right now I’m really into electronic music, folk music, and alternative rap. My influences range from all kinds of shit, Bon Iver to XXYYXX, I just love music and finding new music, and a lot of weird shit inspires me as well.

Weedwave: The term ‘weedwave’ came to mind, cause people kept saying my music sounds something you would do drugs to, like it would trigger the brain to want to do a massive amount of drugs, especially weed for some reason. I can see where they were coming from by saying that, personally it’s just me trying to make something unique and fresh.

Spies On Bikes

Tampa, United States

Visual artist and actor Nathan Cochran, produces experimental folk, electronica and hip-hop under the alias, Spies On Bikes.

The Spies On Bikes project has been running just over 2 years now, and the dude has gone from creating hip-hop beats, to future garage, to electronica, to ‘folktronica’; his current style of beatmanship. Characterised by warm old school synths, hip-hop drum patterns, and folk vocals, Spies On Bikes productions make for laid back Sunday afternoon listening. The lo-fi nature of the beats allow the listener to unwind, and straight max and relax.

Dude’s latest release and debut album “Man Overboard” (2012), is an ambient, atmospheric, folktronica album with elements of hip-hop and future garage. Some personal favourite tracks off the release include, “Warm”, “Long Walks And Recorded Talks”, and “Love Like Hours”.
