Things have been slightly quieter in the blogshere since Moduloktopus has revoked his weekly production release to a monthly mixtape format. A pace much easier to keep in stride with. The break in time may now be filled with production for others, on a regular basis? Hopefully so, after having listening to ‘The Perfect Man’ . This and the remainder of Claire’s Doubts, Dreams, and Ambitions EP are available for free via her Bandcamp, HERE.
Jump up in the middle of the club and get pissed.
Today is a monuments day here at Future Classics. The first of a new monthly, soon to be podcast, has been launched. The studious and multi talented Moduloktopus was gracious enough to kick off the series with a 50 minute mix original work. This masterpiece is also serving as the first of his own mix series entitled ‘MIXTopus’. And, without fail from the first second to the last this all encompassing showcase of work will have you locked in tight.
Here we go again. Yet another air tight Moduloktopus production (which appeared on the NOMS – Connection EP) . Apologies for the non Valentines delivery, but you’ll learn to forgive slowly throughout the listen. Also, favourite Moduloktopus video to date. [vimeo http://www.vimeo.com/59637486 w=560&h=315]
It’s interesting that Black History Month is not as well a Canadian tradition. It’s about the only piece of America culture that has not made it’s way across the border.
Moduloktopus & Madd Martigann keeping up with the times as per usually revisited Bessie’s Bounce, and DAAAM. Hot chocolate. These guys are just too on point. Listen, watch, download.
Have faith in yourself. Be yourself. Don’t let what brands who’s product you enjoy define you.
Some words of wisdom from Bruce and then some from Future Classics.
Formless takes Bruce Lee’s words into practice. Something we can all be doing more of.

Many of you may well recognize Art of Noise’s ‘Moments In Love’ as LOL Boys ‘Moments In Heartbreak.’ Moving back to the original (Moments In Love) then forward again in a twerking motion Moduloktopus puts forth his take on this vibefull classic.
This is really an outer worldly song. The Sitar stands out in a very calming way. Easy listening very much so. Taking a break from the structured and completely computer generated music is something that everyone needs from time to time. There is something to be said about organic music and the beneficial effects that listening to it can give a person. We all need it from time to time.
“Though you might not have heard of her, Roxiny is surely on the same golden road as Foxes (featured on Zedd’s “Clarity”), Sirah (featured on Skrillex’s “Bangarang”) and other EDM femmes. The dame hails from Dominican Republic and the vibe of her latest track certainly capitalizes on her roots with its Latin sounds. This Official Moduloktopus remix of Roxiny’s “Belong”, brings airy pop vocals, authentic Dominican rhythms, swelling dub lines, kaleidoscopic sound play and a Future grime undertone.
“Within every culture I lived and loved, music was the greatest form of expression,” says Roxiny in regards to her music.” – Moduloktopus

This write up is too good to not copy and paste ::
“As the resonant Shamansitic screams of Jim Morrison are heard in combination of the deep hypnotic low-end of the 808 and the psychedelic sound textures of ambient mental space, Moduloktopus & Naito release their first collaboration together bridging together a forward thinking flavor of Trap/Underground Techno with a recurrent story in the club world.”
“Moduloktopus rises again blurring genres back to the roots of Jungle and the Bass heavy Dirty South. Influenced by the Drum n bass from LTJ Bukem, Shy FX, Goldie, Roni Size etc… the Music Chameleon decides to pay a tribute to the breakbeat movement and people who come from a its common ground. The title “Wiggizm” originates from the myriad ways of creatively “Wiggin Out” aka Combining a wild imagination to push dance music forward. Also it ironically relates with the artist’s actual birth name. The track is no exception to the description at hand, as the vibrant marriage of heavy 808s and chopped up Old-school breaks create a Hi Octane atmosphere behind the shivering melodic narrative. It remakes the old into the new the same way Jungle did in its origins.”
