Song of the Day: Sub Swara – TKM

Every Monday through Friday, we deliver a different song as part our Song of the Day podcast subscription. This podcast features exclusive KEXP in-studio performances, unreleased songs, and recordings from independent artists that our DJs think you should hear. Today‚Äôs featured selection, chosen by Afternoon Show host Kevin Cole, is TKM by Sub Swara from the 2008 album Coup d’Yah on Low Motion.

Sub Swara – TKM (MP3)

Sub Swara, a supergroup of DJs, producers and instrumentalists, has been holding down the fort the first Friday of every month at NYCs famed electronic club, Love, for almost three years. Coup d’Yah is the groups first full-length album and showcases some of the best in global dubstep. The urban, often grim nature of the genre is livened up here with an infusion of ragga, glitch-hop and plenty of live instrumentation. The group’s residency and reputation also helped pull in a number of top-notch guest vocalists including Zulu (Ghislain Poirier), MC Coppa (Al Haca) and others. With so much good dubstep coming out the UK, Sub Swara has been holding their own on this side of the water, dropping some of the most bass-heavy tracks the world-round. As a collective, Sub Swara has a number of dates coming up, both together and as individuals, including the previously mentioned 3-year anniversary @ Love. Check their MySpace page for their other primarily NYC show listings and take note of this short clip, performed @ Love back in April (and remember bass doesn’t translate so well to YouTube videos):
