i'm late to the mf doom game. i only found out about him in about 2014, and i didn't discover his viktor vaughn releases until a couple of years ago. over the last week or so, though, i've been listening to vaudeville villain a lot! it's a great album, not a single bad track on it. they're all so moody and weird, a huge departure from what mainstream rap sounded like in 2003. such a cool, interesting blend of electronica and hiphop. my favorites are lactose and lecithin, raedawn, saliva, and the title track.
genre: hip hop, electronica
release date: 2003
album: viktor vaughn // vaudeville villain
over the last couple of years, i've gotten really into breakcore and its surrounding subgenres. golemm is one of my favorite artists and this track grooves so hard. i don't even have that much to say about it! i just want to share it. check out golemm's other work at their bandcamp. their stuff is fun and bouncy and it hits a silliness button in a way that a lot of other breakcore doesn't. 10/10 recommend.
genre: breakcore, hardcore
release date: 2021
album: golemm // hazardous bubble basics
i've really been back on my industrial bullshit lately after seeing skinny puppy. it may come as a surprise but i was (am?) a "goth", lmao. my mom was really big into goth/industrial music and it rubbed off on me. in my teens and early twenties, i would go regularly to a goth club called assimilation and dance for hours.
i don't wear all black with giant buckle-covered boots anymore, but i still love the music and i always will. revolting cocks is one of the bands that holds a special place in my heart, alongside other wax tracks records bands. i'm recently getting into more of their catalog of work (i had no idea nivek ogre did vocals on a track for them!) and it's been fun. here's a track that is truly iconic, and objectively the best mix.
release date: 1990
album: revolting cocks // beers steers + queers (deluxe edition)
