Spark

Abakus has taken an abrupt turn with his soon to be released album. That is not to say it’s not good, because I think I’m going to dig this glitch hop like album if it sounds like this… certainly not for the faint of heart. Dig on the darker stuff… ya feel me?

Futurism

Abakus, one of my favorites, is releasing his new LP, Futurism, on May 7th. This is part 1 of a two part preview mix. I’m really looking forward to this after hearing some quick snap shots. Come to the fucking West Coast!

Love In Sunset

It’s April… and it’s a great month for a number of reasons some of those being spring, coachella, Sound Tribe in Oakland, birthday month, sunshine (rain is a liiiie), and a new Cinnamon Chasers Mix. The NuDisco influenced mix clocks in at 30 minutes so sit down or dance, and listen to the whole thing because it’s perfect if you’re into that sound. If not, give it a whirl and join us. It’s fun over here.

Cinnamon Chasers – Love In Sunset April 2012 DJ Mix

A new Cinnamon Chaser’s track from his new EP due out in March of 2012. Along with it comes a really cool video. This is definitely a slight departure from his nu-disco-ish sound and dives deeper into a much darker territory. While I am insanely into his older stuff, it’s cool to hear a different direction. I don’t think the sound of his past is gone, but I certainly am interested to hear this new direction. The intro itself almost sounds Tycho-ish which is a compliment.

I’ve been dying for Cinnamon Chasers/Abakus (same Russ Davies, different moniker) to play somewhere near the west coast of the US. As soon as he’s in a 6 hour radius I’m there. Check out his facebook.

Abakus aka Cinnamon Chasers aka Russ Davies, just released an ambient techno mix of his from 2010. He’s actually releasing a ton of stuff over on his soundcloud page which you should check out.

Abakus explores the deeper and more emotionally complex side to electronic music. His music takes you on an emotional journey through the cosmic realms of electronic exploration. Dive right in and take a trip.

Abakus – Summer2010 – FutureSoundScapes

I felt compelled to post something a bit different after the last Rusko post. As people may have been able to notice, my taste in electronic music is all over the place. Hell, I haven’t even touched UK Garage, House, etc. This next artist has without a doubt been one of my favorites for a long time as well as his other moniker, Abakus. This is Cinnamon Chasers… “Cinnamon Chasers is a nu-disco alias of music producer Russ Davies, exploring the colorful world of fluro-electro beats, warm melodiums and tripped out italo. Cinnamon Chasers is inspired by films like Flight Of The Navigator and the Never ending Story. “I try to create music that gives me the vibe those classic films gave me as a kid”. Cinnamon Chasers achieves this with a perfect blend of crisp electronics, Pop based song structure and melodies, and an Indie feel.”

You should check out his soundcloud page which will have links to purchasing. I’ve bought everything over the years from Russ. A true genius he is.  The two songs here are just samples of two of my favorites off his most recent album which were remixes that he did on his own songs… wait what?
