Possibly one of the biggest names to emerge from L.A.'s hip-hop-indebted, electronic beat scene (other than Flying Lotus, of course), The Glitch Mob released its debut album, Drink the Sea, towards the end of May, after years spent producing one-off tracks and remixes. The record has seemed to attract the attention of music lovers across the board, (including the likes of Paris Hilton, surprisingly enough), and now you budding bedroom beatsmiths can take a whack at remixing one of the outfit's new tracks.

Over on The Glitch Mob's website, you can download the separated elements of the first Drink single, "Drive It Like You Stole It," for you to chop, screw, twist, tweak, warp, and dismember to your heart's content. You can't use any illegal samples or anything else not outlined in the rules and regulations of the Remix It Like You Stole It contest, but the pristine audio files offered should be more than enough to get you started on an inspired reinterpretation of the energetic number. There will be two winners of the contest, who will be decided by one of two ways: either their remix gets "favorited" most on the SoundCloud page, or The Glitch Mob simply likes the magic of the new track. You can check out the finer details of the contest, download the parts for your remix, check out the full list of prizes, and listen to your current competition here.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
