New Electro/Techno 12"s Coming this Weekend:

Black Meteoric Star 
DEATH TUNNEL 12" DFA2200

Latest project by longtime DFA alumni GAVIN RUSSOM, inspired by Euro-disco, wonky early electronic body music and global psychedelic rock. "DEATH TUNNEL" is a hot club cut just waiting to be unleashed, while the flip "WORLD EATER" is a more mid-tempo groover with a strong EBM lean.

Sven Weisemann SHOVE EP 12" ARTLESS2193 

This 6 track EP is a mixture of deep electronic journeys of dub and tech, with a surprising chunky IDM mover (peep track 5) that comes out of nowhere into the forefront. SVEN never disappoints with his keen ear for digital landscapes and fresh musical concepts.

AMOEBA MUSIC BERKELEY HIP-HOP TOP FIVE: 01:25:09

e-40 the ball street journal
1) Q-Tip The Renaissance (Motown/Universal)

2) Common Universal Mind Control (Geffen)

3) 88 Keys The Death of Adam (Decon)

4) E40 The Ball Street Journal (Sic Wid It/Warner)

5) Atmosphere God Loves Ugly (Rhymesayers Entertainment)

Thanks to Inti at Amoeba Music Berkeley for supplying this week's Hip-Hop Top FIve chart of the best selling albums of the week. As with both other Amoeba stores, the current Q-Tip and Common albums are both still selling steadily. So too are 88 Keys and the "Ambassador of the Yay Area," E40. In addition to the former Jive Records artist's first release through Warner, E40 is also one of the 40 odd artists featured on the fantastic new hip-hop rooted but musically diverse compilation N.A.S.A. The Spirit of Apollo on Anti (more on this release later). Not on this chart but still selling well at Amoeba Berkeley, as well as elsewhere, and coming in at a close number 6, is Kayne West's 808s & Heartbreak (Roc-A-Fella Records). "I really like that album," said Inti from Amoeba, adding that, "It's a concept album and I always appreciate concept albums. And people are loving it and buying it."
 
atmosphere god loves uglyThis week's Top Five's newest chart entry, Atmosphere's God Loves Ugly, is in fact a reissue of the relatively slept-on 2002 release by the superb Minneapolis, Minnesota duo comprised of Slug (emcee) and Ant (beats). Atmosphere's stellar last album When Life Gives You Lemons, You Paint That Shit Gold (Rhymesayers) was the top selling hip-hop album at Amoeba Music for 2008. As time goes on and mainstream hip-hop gets more redundant and repetitive, it seems unique voices like Slug's (an intelligent, insightful emcee with a real gift for storytelling and flipping the script in a truly original way) over the dense innovative beats of Ant, rise to the top to get the attention they rightfully deserve.
