The Necessity for Sanitization (Comic Strips || @@)
If you’ve noticed anything from our posts in the past few weeks, it’s that right now we’re feeling pretty damn good, having worked our sweet bums off to bring you the best and the freshest. At this point, pretty much anything could come along and we wouldn’t give two fucks or a shit, to paraphrase Sir Dillon himself, and we’d karate chop said shit into oblivion with a flick of the wrist. These days its all motivation, determination, and a lot of ambition, as Walewould tell you. But these efforts wouldn’t be half as worth it without some shenanigans in between, consisting primarily of late nights and serious bass. After all, you could use a few drinks to take the edge off that Adderall Moby gave you yesterday.
If the repose you were looking for was in any way supposed to be chill, then you may as well just take a Valium and pass out now, because both of the artists I have for you today bring some serious filth. Only the potential for deep tissue electronic stimulation could reside within these bass sequences, leaving both your feet bruised and your lungs exhausted as you gasp for air on the dance floor, in your room, or as you walk down the street, where ever you like to enjoy your beats. But enough banter… let’s get to it!
Tom Holroyd, or Comic Strips as he known in the EDM community, is a producer and DJ from Pittsburg, Pennsylvania. At only nineteen, this young artist is taking both the blogosphere and dance floors by storm after launching his career just a short year ago. Now having shared the stage with the likes of MSTRKRFT, Excision, Pretty Lights, Wolfgang Gartner, Desinger Drugs, and Lucky Date among others, Halroyd is making waves on the Beatport charts and on Hype Machine, with a top ten spot in the latter held by his remix of Skrillex‘s “Ruffneck Bass.” His tracks are produced with complexity and depth, emitting sounds both edgy and soulful, as groove and grunge work together to bring fire to the eardrums. In a recent interview with The Untz, Holroyd spoke about how he would characterize his own sound, and the goals behind his production:
To me, it is dance music with a hefty dose of bass. My main goal for my tunes is to make people move while never ceasing to keep things interesting. I keep it predominately electro house, however, I believe it’s a good thing to maintain a diverse portfolio. Thus, I dabble in dubstep and downtempo beats. I find it essential to have some variation in sets, which is a big reason I play around with those other genres. That way, I can have my original material at varied tempos, rather than having to remix other artist’s tracks. I am really into keeping my sets 90% of my own content.
This July marked the released of Comic Strips’ second EP. The two-track Party Zone features much of the same edge with a cool disco vibe from the title track, and a great big room sound on the other, aptly named TurboViolet. Check out both below, with various others from the depths of his Soundcloud.

Now if this wasn’t enough, I’ll talk briefly about another artist whom I’ve been very curious about for the past few weeks. I discovered @@, or Beat Repeat, by chance on Soundcloud, and for the life of me can’t seem to find virtually any information on them, aside from the fact that they’re a duo from Murfreesboro, Tennessee. Despite my only being able to find a few of their unfathomable tracks, they seem to be getting some major play, as noted by their awesome performance photos and “Live w/ Zeds Dead” set on Souncloud. Their page describes their tunes as mind meltage, funky electro-house glitchtronica, and dubclectro-complextro-figaro among others, a testament to the intricacy of their sound. Need I say more? It would be best to just have a listen.
