UK Glitch Hop: November round-up

Big month for UK Glitch Hop! Not only have we got a Facebook community and Soundcloud group going great gunz, but there's been a shedload of quality music coming out, including...

...the return of the king! Following on from the Snake Eyes EP, Dave Tipper's dropped a stonker of a release the Bubble Control EP - accompanied by a promo mix that's had glitch hop producers the world over jizzing on their controls with excitement at the quality of his production. Just read the comments below...

You'll probably also like this well timed freebie from Enig'matik.

Skanky Panky records co-founder William Breakspear's given us a tantalizing taster of his long-awaited album Bardcor, coming out ant minute now on Rocstar

...and a tasty remix of K+Lab's and Funkdamunk's brilliant McFly was a Raver

Bobby Tank unleashed the epic Vanquish EP on Vermin Street right at the start of the month. Described by Zen Death Squad as a "Pure funk dream" the three original tracks and myriad of varied remixes span post-dubstep, glitch, wonky and funk. Brilliant:

Swiftly followed by the even more off-the-wall Nexus Moonburgers EP:

Slugabed's let some kittens out the closet. (Doesn't he look cute?)
It might not have been November, but Rustie's debut LP, Glass Swords, is still pretty fresh. It sounds a lot like a game boy at a disco. Grab the free sample of All Nite here:

Koan Sound's mixed-up another monster, this time for LAs Kill the Noise
  Kill The Noise - Deal With It (KOAN Sound Remix) by KOAN Sound

I was inspired by their Funk Blaster EP for my last mixtape:
    Are you funking my face? by Morbidly Obese Midget
Koan Sound - Talk Box
K Lab / Funkdamunk - McFly was a Raver
Blunt Instrument - Simmer Gently
D Carls - All In
Koan Sound - Funk Blaster
GRiz - I'm Home (FreQ's Moombahton Relick)
K Theory - Glitch & Blues
Love and Light - Ninjas Brothas Motha
William Breakspear - Vowel Mouthed
Knight Riderz - Enter Reality
Eddy Crusher - Starting Blocks
Opiuo - Moose Tooth
Bobby Tank - Questar

Ninja Dave's put me onto this wicked slab of electro glitch-funk from London's Sabre Pulse. The rest of the album morphs across the hole gamut of bass music, well worth checking out!

On the flipside Orangudan's served up a beautiful downtempo mix. Good to see lots of Ninja Tune and other flavours in there: 
  UnDaMu by Orangudan

You can argue whether it's glitch hop, but Benji Boko's doing pretty well on the DJ Shadow remix comp:
DJ Shadow Ft. Little Dragon - Scale It Back [Benji Boko Remix] by BENJI BOKO

They're not from UK, but my personal vote's for Blunt Instrument's funky-arsed bass version, currently sitting at the top of the group:

And last but certainly not least, the grand master of west-coast digital psychedelia, Android Jones has an exhibition at Hoxton Gallery opening 28 November. You've probably seen his work in the Inspiralled gallery at Glade, at Boom Festival or in the Fractal Village at Burning Man where it graced the flyer this year and many of these works will be the result of his legendary live performances, where he visually realises his response to the musical environment he's in. Don't miss it!
