San Francisco producer Comma is projecting holograms of his vision for the future of music. As a member of the tastemaker beat collective Frite Nite, he’s one of the fastest rising names in the Bay Area’s diverse production scene. With influences ranging from the UK underground, ambient techno, Detroit futurism, and a life-long love for hip-hop, Comma has been steadily advancing new sounds as a DJ, producer, and enthusiast of forward thinking music.  He also heads up the StayLucid blog, so while you're bumpin' the mix definitely head over there and check out his interview with fellow Cali-based producer Shlohmo from last month.

<a href="http://comma.bandcamp.com/album/carry-the-fire">All Gods, All Masters by Comma</a>

On his debut Carry The Fire EP, Comma emerges in an evolving strain of dance music influenced by dubstep, experimental beats, UK garage, and ambient. These looming, haunted tracks are rich with abstract melodies and driving rhythms that breathe and grow effortlessly. The post-garage skitter of “Coyote” illuminates an original style that is fresh and emotive, while the title track is a 136 BPM epic with driving low-end and a hook that evolves brilliantly until the last note. The similar roller “Holodeck” shows Comma’s distinct nostalgia for future visions come and gone, and his habit of creating, rather than following trends. After four of Comma’s unique productions, we are treated to a remix of “All Gods, All Masters” by recent Warp Records signee EPROM, who re-heats the track with the speaker-blowing attitude that has gained him international acclaim.

After being in touch since his Blazars mixtape dropped a while back (which you can still find HERE) we finally linked up and got him to put together an awesome mix for our cloudcast series. This one takes it in a direction that none of our previous guestmixes have, with tunes from all over the left-field and experimental beat spectrum. Hope you enjoy and big up Comma!
