“14 tracks in search of Wonky”

A follow-up of sorts to our 'Hip Hop A La Mode' selection from a few weeks back, this week we return to the hybrid sounds loosely flung under the Wonky umbrella. This is music characterised by woozy synths pushed up high in the mix with little regard for rhyme or reason, and percussive structures so off kilter and low-swung it sounds like the very fabric of the music is about to fall apart at the seams. From Flying Lotus and Hud Mo representing next-level Hip Hop, through to Zomby and Joker ramping up grime, rave and dubstep presets, Wonky is slowly formulating its own brilliantly groggy agenda, embracing a dayglo aesthetic that has for our money delivered the most exhilarating musical headrush in 2008...

Take part! Leave a comment!

What do you think of this selection?
Any suggestions?
All comments are warmly welcomed.

“so interesting”

thanks to your selections each week you've improved my musical lifestyle by a factor of fourteen (no pun intended) - i've discovered so much good music here i cant quite believe there is a world out there i never knew about. My favourite selections so far have been the drone pop and super 8 ones, but it shows how on the nose you are that this new selection which is very very different musically contins some of the best music i can remember hearing for a long time. thank you, and again, thank you.

“like going to charity shops.”

It's not always what you think you'd buy, but you do and end up surprised that it suits you ;]

“This is dope!”

This compilation is phenomenal! I'm gonna drop this about a 1/3 of the way through a live set, and totally change it up! Some of these tracks will blow people away. Let the raver gravy flow bitches!

Wonkastic stuff !! Thanks Boomkat for these refreshing selections!!

All new to me - love 'em! Once again, my music horizons expand thanks to 14 tracks.
Cheers!

“Podcast?”

I love these selections. I know this may shatter your business model, but any chance you could offer these selections as podcasts that we could subscribe to for a yearly fee?

“Yes, and...”

Nice list but Dorian Concept def deserved a spot. 'Fort Teen' in all its incarnations never fails to bop heads.

“truly unique”

this is the best collection of tracks yet! long time listener, first time commenter. never have i been interested in so many of the tracks. you guys are really at the cutting edge, i had read about wonky mere days ago and wanted to explore the genre.

“Album Artwork?”

hey... awesome, awesome job with these
various selections.. what a treat!
there's something for everybody too

just one request: can you make the album artwork available? Perhaps include it in the downloads? or otherwise publicly available on discogs or last.fm or somewhere?

thanks :-)

“Album Artwork & zipped track bundles”

Given the number of requests for album artwork to be included with selections, plus all your comments regarding a simplified download process which involves just one zipped download per selection, many of you will be happy to know that we will be rolling out a number of upgrades which we hope will make things a little bit better. The rollout is expected sometime very early in December.
