This is a compilation, put together by the folks from Jus'Like Music Records with a mega handful of reallyyy cool-minded producers that they had to divide it into two parts haha. And I was fortunate enough to take part in this project! There's also a track by the homie (who was also in Term 2 of the RBMA) DZA from Russiaaaa killin' it. Real crispppppp...! Go cop it!

Bearmod on visual concept, second unit camera, and mirrors (design, construction, and on-set wrangling). Look out for an A/V remix by Le Matos (audio) and myself (visual) this summer.

Long time since the first one (which can still be streamed here)
The great people over at Low Riders Collective, based in Rotterdam asked me to do a mix, and I thought I was long overdue to do a mixtape of some of my material, so it ended up being a slightly more ambitious thing.
Awkward interview and download/streaming links on their blog right here
Big things this year. Good music is coming out everywhere, exciting dance parties in montreal, etc.
Here is the tracklist for the mix:
1. Hovatron – Max Headroom – INTRO
2. Hovatron – Everything Always
3. Hovatron – The Drip
4. Hovatron – Gold Star Radiation
5. Hovatron – Gold Star Radiation (Cryptical remix)
6. Dopplereffekt – Plastiphilia (Hova remix)
7. Hovatron – One Handed
8. Hovatron – Blaptop
9. Hovatron – Delorean Reprise
10. Hovatron – Super Soaker
11. Cassie – Long Way to Go (Hova remix)
12. Hovatron – Born Under Punches (interpretation of Talking Heads)
13. Hovatron – Already Know
14. Hovatron – Well Yeah, Maybe We’ll See

Let's start off by apologizing for the lack of posts.
for up-to-the-second constant bloggin from philhova and damon, head over here
Things have been good, we've been to london for RBMA, released 7"s on spannish Skweee labels, worked PR for DFA records and started building modular synthesizers.
Alright alright alright on to the heat:
RQM, which you are probably familiar with if you follow this whole new wave of beat stuff remotely closely, he's been on a bunch of amazing beats by some of our friends, like Lazer Sword for example. He just released an EP called Colors Fade. No offense everyone, we try to listen to things we get by email, but when RQM himself hollered and I finalle went through this, It thought it was my duty to share.
For starters, the music. Great vocals, I'm hearing a bit of Saul Williams in there, but more soulful, without the annoying bits and more relevant. Now : RIDICULOUS beats. I'm talking off the wall ridiculous. Click here to stream the wild timbaland-esque SIRIUSMO contribution (Siriusmo being a unanimous Manybrain favorite). To be honest I'm not sold on the JF version but that just may be my gripe with that dubstep right now.
Second, amazing packaging and concept. 84 7"s were pressed each with unique painted artwork that once put together form a huge puzzle. Try doing that with your MP3s. Also comes with a t-shirt and a whole bunch of extra shit but wait did we mention also Chris De Luca and Phono and SIRIUSMO beats? oh yeah. that too.
So Finally, here is a track available for download, the title track, produced by Glue Kids:
RQM - Colors Fade (prod. Glue Kids)
It's sounding like influences going full circle and is reminiscent of press darlings XX. Ketamine'd up sexy minimalism, executed very well.
ps: if you didn't listen to the siriusmo beat, do it. if you did, do it again

Happy new years errrrone
So my first real official release came out today, it's called Let's Get Wet.
on the flip you'll find Gold Star Radiation which is another lil thing I did.
you can hear snippets of it over at my myspace
DJ Google should help you find it on some online record storeeeeeee
also, at the end of the month the digital will come out, featuring remixes from LANDO KAL, CRYPTICAL AND LUNICE(CAL?). and yes they are all better than the original version and are unfuckwithable!!
Some other shits should be surfacing soon, as well as the all new Hovatron live PA show starting to surface in a month or two.. been locked up with big synthesizers and patch cables trying to figure out midi to cv pitches and other fun ultra-nerdy stuff.
See you soon
all the best,

long time coming, only about 78658468345 amazing mixtapes dropped since his last full length. his album is a triumphant return to the real album format for dear gucci mane.
he is best over fellow southern beat dudes like Shawty Redd, Zaytoven and in this case, Drumma Boy. luuuuuuuuuh gucci. and Rick Ross is a favorite here in manybrainsville to this day.
