* An atmospheric opening with a looming bass line eventually breaks into the kind of low-key four-on-the-floor while chopped horns, strings and vocals enhance the dueling dynamic of chill vs. hyped, in Dntel’s remix of Bath’s “Rain Smell.”

Feature: A Decade Of Dublab – Celebrating L.A.’s Most Inspiring and Intuitive Music Collective

It was a true honor to collaborate with LA Weekly Music Editor Randall Roberts on a piece honoring one of this city’s most exceptional audio organizations, Dublab. What began as an Internet radio collective 10 years ago has grown into a veritable small universe of music-making, education, and events-throwing (and then some) — Dublab is a creative engine operating at full bore with no signs of slowing its roll. Read my article on how it happened, or skip straight to Roberts’ piece on the 10 days of incredible celebration Dublab’s got planned.

INCHES003: New wax from Flying Lotus, Dublab, Triorganico and Adam Payne (+ MP3s, chart)

Ladies and gentlemen: INCHES003. By journalistic law, this column now qualifies as a trend. Installment number three is actually the first “regular” edition, an unthemed collection of just-released L.A.-relevant vinyl reviewed (with original photos and free MP3s, of course), accompanied by a top ten vinyl sales chart from one of our local record shops. This week, you’ll find a new Flying Lotus EP, some incredible throwback bossa nova by Triorganico, seven inches of Adam Payne jamitude, and a killer Dublab release compiling work from the best of this city’s beat music scene. Plus, see what Vacation Vinyl’s been selling (hint: rhymes with “meth kettle”).
