Spotlight Feature & Guest Review: AudioBite Records

audiobite-02-640x213_2Detroit native, producer, percussionist, culinary artist and music lover Nicole Simpkins started Audiobite Records in 2008 with a mission to give undiscovered artists from around the globe a voice. In September, Audiobite celebrated their 100th release with an album that includes 10 new original tracks from 10 of their artists.

As I type, new artists are being signed from all over the world (Italy, Brazil, Germany, and Canada to name a few) and Berlin-based artists Jeff & Jessey (formerly Joe & Jessey) just released an EP called “The Fire” featuring remixes from Ramiro Bernabela and Berlin legend Robin Masters Orchestra (aka DJ Jauche). Not afraid to take risks, Audiobite expresses a wide range of sounds from soulful, deep, and vocal to progressive, tribal and techy. Be sure to link up with them on Twitter and Facebook to stay in the know.

Audiobite’s leading lady, Nicole, was kind enough to review the following two SpinSpinNYC releases for your reading pleasure. 

Nutritious Presents Duke Williams and The Extremes
“Very interesting and enjoyable EP complete with original mixes and proper treatments from Nutritious. All three of the original mixes have a great old-school funky southern rock vibe, and are accompanied by revamped treatments that are fit for the dancefloor. The original “God Bless All The Girls In The World” is funky and slightly jazzy with awesome guitar riffs and gritty and captivating vocals, while the Nutritious treatment brings on the funk and power while keeping the vibe of the original intact. “Theme From The Bermuda Triangle” radiates a tropical jazzy vibe with its mind-blowing guitar solos, dreamy organs, and groovy tropical drums. Nutritious takes this to a higher level of jazzy funk giving it an electrifying result. “I Can’t Wait Till Tomorrow” definitely has a 70s southern vibe with its sultry vocals, funky riffs, and ethereal sounds. The Nutritious treatment of this one has a deep and moody atmospheric vibe, perfect for the late night set. Overall a very impressive release with a new take on a classic sound.”

Infernal Devices – Life in Stereo EP
“This high quality 6-track EP is complete with 4 amazing original mixes from Infernal Devices and mind-blowing remixes from Nutritious and Savoir Adore. The original mix of “Life in Stereo” is both captivating and electrifying, demonstrating a proper use of echo effects and soothing vocals driven along by resonating sounds. Nutritious’ mix features Chuck Love and is deep and driving with evocative jazzy horns, ethereal effects, and beautiful melodies all put together to make a very unique and mesmerizing result. Savoire Adore brings on a progressive and climactic journey with breathtaking vocals and metallic sounds that has a quite powerful overall effect. “Passengers” has the perfect combination of energy and deepness with its propelling synths and dreamy sounds. “We Are Alone” has nu-age vibes over a deep and resonating groove with a perfect sprinkling of entrancing vocals. “Move On” has a gritty and pulsating energy that’s complete with swaying synths and euphoric vocals that drive the track. All of these tracks display a raw and real emotion that emanates through to the listener and possess a quite sophisticated yet simple and soothing effect.”

SpinSpinNYC Artists Charles Brix & Infernal Devices Pick One Song / Artist to Listen to as the World Comes to an End | Magnetic Magazine

Magnetic_Magazine_SpinSpinNYCTwo SpinSpinNYC artists, Charles Brix & Infernal Devices, tell Magnetic Magazine which song / artist they would like to listen to as the world comes to an end.

“Computer Love by Kraftwerk. I used to listen to this song over and over again as a kid.  It has a great groove, but also this serene quality to it that calms me down. If it was all coming to an end, I think I’d like to be in a peaceful state of mind.” –Andy Miccolis of Infernal Devices

“If there’s anyone I’d trust to prepare my soul for the next dimension, it would have to be Nutritious.  When it comes to soul, he’s got the market cornered.” –Charles Brix aka Higher Nebulae (SpinSpinNYC)
