Somewhere back in 2004 I got this mix from an LA based DJ called Diskore filled with gritty, distorted electronic breaks and beats and I loved every bit of it. It has tracks from all over the electronic music spectrum. All of them sharing a dirty, unpolished and beat-heavy sound. Without a track listing I had no idea what I was listening to, but here and there I could detect some known artists like Speedy J (check out his A Shocking Hobby), a hard Aphex Twin track, some Hellfish and Producer tracks (Bastard Sonz of Rave is awesome) or some hardcore/breakcore/dnb I know.
Most of it I didn’t know however, but over time I ran into tracks here and there, finding out more bit my bit.
Recently Diskore started posting his mixes on Soundcloud and from the looks of it, he’s still mostly into the dark and dirty side of electronic music. Excellent.
Check out his downloadable mixes if you want some fresh distortion.
