Wooferface’s Waveform Wednesdays: Friends of Friends

Published on April 25th, 2012

This find took a bit of backtracking, but I couldn’t be happier with where I landed. Friends of Friends, more commonly referred to as FoF Music, is a Los Angeles based label with releases dating back to 2009. Although I don’t know much about the brains behind the operation, I know the operation has been churning out tons of quality tracks from quality artists. To start, download this free release they gave out two Christmas’s ago! Presents year round!

Shlohmo – Wenn Uuu

Shlohmo is the first artist that caught my eye. Not only have I seen his name floating around the internet, but he is a frequent contributor to the label’s catalog. His music is deep, haunting, and has a fantastic glitchy element to it. Plus from what I gather from his soundcloud, he performs his music using live programming, which certainly makes sense. Take a listen in, get lost in it.

Shlohmo – Seriously (Live Mix)

Drake – I’m on One (Shlohmo Remix)

Mexicans with Guns and Toy Selectah, also known as Ernest Gonzales and Toy Hernandez respectively, are fantastic producers in their own rights, repping styles from Cumbia to 3ball to techno and dubstep. Together, with their powers combined, they form Gun Selectah and have released an EP containing 3 original tracks as well as a slew of awesome remixes.

The Legend of Zelda (MWG Nintendro remix)

Mexicans With Guns – \\ChupraCabra\\

Lana del Monte Reh – Blue Jeans (Toy Selectah Refix)

Gun Selectah – Como un Perro

Gun Selectah – Poppin Wheelies (HxdB remix)

This final artist has already released his single this past March and will be releasing his full album this May. Tomas Barfod‘s Salton Sea has already produced one fantastic track called “Broken Glass” along with a couple fantastic remixes. Although its a more mellow brand of electronica, the guitar licks and ambience are enough to keep me fully invested and asking for more.

Tomas Barfod – Beach Party
