One of my truly favorite rising star artists, TheFatRat has returned. I’d been lamenting the lack of an original release from this guy for way too long, and the waiting is finally over. There’s a scintillating competence in TheFatRat’s production that can’t be matched. The chip/glitch/electro has some serious spunk without getting too heavy or serrated. The track continues the irrepressible positivity of TheFatRat’s sound, which I could not support more. The vocals arrive when they need to, and they receive the same extravagant treatment as his beats. There’s a soul to TheFatRat that I can’t wait to see expand as people discover this MUST LISTEN track. (Artwork by jordangrimmer.deviantart.com)
Just in case you needed something that vaguely qualifies as Christmas music, Johnny Lectro has got you covered. This amusing electro-swing/polka track will keep the whole family moving while you warm up them Christmas vittles (or wait for Chinese delivery, you know, same thing). If that doesn’t serve up enough merryment, TheFatRat has pushed out another hour of supremely groovy, fast-paced & excellently produced mix goodness. TheFatRat is one of my favorite things about the LA area right now, and I can’t wait to see them live.
Enjoy both, have a wonderful Wednesday, may your Christmas be merry, your Kwanzaa wonderful, your Boxing Day bountiful & your New Year’s Sunny & Bright. And of course, if you celebrated Festivus on Monday, I hope there were many airings of grievances and you succeeded in all of your feats of strength.
