oh yeah, meant to say i'm utterly addicted to Terror Danjah's "You Make Me Feel".

i quite like it but it's kind of lol how terror danjah gave a 5-year-old track to hyperdub. it was originally on this comp

the carmen reece 'hey lover' mj cole remix on that is such a classic

Been quite enjoying this remix of Redlight's Get Out My Head

I want your nose, your shoes and your unicycle (dog latin), Wednesday, 1 February 2012 14:11 (2 years ago) Permalink

Yeah I kinda like that.

Guido stuck it in his fact mix the other day too: http://www.factmag.com/2012/01/30/fact-mix-314-guido/

Well nice, can't get enough Guido.

I didn't know that Terror track was an oldie, I never coped that comp. It deserves another outing to be fair.

that Joker remix is so out there. i like all the individual pieces, might need to listen to it a few more times to see if they all fit together

looks like shadowy youtube enigma Evian Christ has signed to (surprise) Tri Angle

Tri Angle are really hit'n'miss. They do have a way with hype tho. So its no suprise they signed Evian Christ and Vessel recently. Vessel is the hit...

I love this remix. Feels like an early contender for 'best of 2012.' Great male vocal bout phones and so forth w very cool sample work and bassline.

Any impressions on the new Preditah EP? I like some of the sounds so far, but it's a bit uneventful for me.

_Rudipherous_, Tuesday, 14 February 2012 16:52 (2 years ago) Permalink

"Circles" is the best of the bunch, I'd say.

_Rudipherous_, Tuesday, 14 February 2012 18:33 (2 years ago) Permalink

Circles is a banger, been waiting an age for that to hit wax.

Objekt Cactus just dropped, it's a big'un.

I heard Livity Sound Live this weekend w/ Peverelist, Kowton & Asusu. It was something else. Picked up Livity Sound #003 by Pev from Idle Hands too: http://hardwax.com/65112/ love it.

finding "cactus" sort of a bitch to mix with, not sure what i'm doing wrong here. is it just me or is the last third totally wonky?

the late great, Monday, 20 February 2012 19:56 (2 years ago) Permalink

also why is livity sound vinyl-only, why peverelist, why

the late great, Monday, 20 February 2012 19:57 (2 years ago) Permalink

just listened to "cactus", pretty dope. it's really syncopated but it's all quantized + in time. i can imagine it would be hard to beatmatch with though.

40oz of tears (Jordan), Monday, 20 February 2012 20:15 (2 years ago) Permalink

it's in time but i think it adds a tiny rest at each drop so you can't just step away from it.

but yeah, what i meant was that i find the syncopation really hard to deal with, the first drop sounds pretty good with whatever (i like it under 4x4) but the two sections after don't. but then heavily swung stuff (like trad dubstep) also sounds weird in those two sections, i have to mix it like a 1/4 or 1/2-beat off and even then it sounds weird.

the late great, Monday, 20 February 2012 20:20 (2 years ago) Permalink

maybe it's because the last two sections have that syncopated kick that anticipates beat 4, i could see that getting muddy over 4-on-the-floor.

scuba lp is beautiful

Been enjoying this Skeng-style track from Hitchin local boy Skeptical.

Alexandre Dumbass (dog latin), Tuesday, 28 February 2012 12:02 (2 years ago) Permalink

I guess here's as good a place to ask as any - Is drum'n'bass dead in the water, or what? I'm always hearing about other styles of bass music these days, and hardly ever d'n'b, so I assume there isn't a lot happening any more, but there must be, right?

Alexandre Dumbass (dog latin), Tuesday, 28 February 2012 16:41 (2 years ago) Permalink

footwork is the new d&b iirc

40oz of tears (Jordan), Tuesday, 28 February 2012 17:03 (2 years ago) Permalink

d&b seems to be valued as an influence or element these days, but not as a genre

40oz of tears (Jordan), Tuesday, 28 February 2012 17:04 (2 years ago) Permalink

i guess i heard some stuff last year about dbridge/instra:mental and the "drum & bass revival", but the tracks i checked out were really boring.

40oz of tears (Jordan), Tuesday, 28 February 2012 17:06 (2 years ago) Permalink

the instra:mental album was more 4/4 oriented too. and very boring.

Alexandre Dumbass (dog latin), Tuesday, 28 February 2012 17:17 (2 years ago) Permalink

Hospital Records nights round my way get more ppl in than any other dance events I can think of

Sylv_ebanks (DJ Mencap), Tuesday, 28 February 2012 17:25 (2 years ago) Permalink

This is the thing, because round my way I hear of a lot of d'n'b (and garage) nights, and they seem ever-popular, but it's not something I read about much on RDP or on the "trendier" part of the web.

Alexandre Dumbass (dog latin), Tuesday, 28 February 2012 17:28 (2 years ago) Permalink

Been feeling these mixes today...

MikeQ Fact Mix #318

Champion Xlr8r Mix #236
http://www.xlr8r.com/podcast/2012/02/champion

Some tracks...

http://soundcloud.com/brey/brey-brasil-ep-sampler

Thats not related to the d'n'b Q mind, I really have no idea whats going on over that way bar the odd Non Plus+ or Jack Sparrow diversion to higher tempos. Rockwell & Untold did a track last year which wasn't bad: http://soundcloud.com/critical-music/rockwell-v-untold-rekohu-sunrise

jimitheexploder, Tuesday, 28 February 2012 18:34 (2 years ago) Permalink

i was going to say, drum and bass still seems really popular, given that every third or fourth fabric mix is still a drum and bass mix, but i haven't heard very much interesting stuff at the traditional 160 bpm tempo aside from ROCKWELL, who basically just sounds like an update on the classic certificate 18 steel-edged roller sound

― 40oz of tears (Jordan), Tuesday, February 28, 2012 9:04 AM Bookmark

Yeah, this seems about right. Of course, dnb nights are still popular, but it hasn't really been considered on the cutting edge for about 15 years now. I did like the Rockwell EP from last year. I think getting away from the Amen break and taking influence from juke was a good look for him. I'm not really familiar with his background though.

I don't go to dnb nights, is it usually an older crowd there?

marissa explains it all (The Reverend), Tuesday, 28 February 2012 21:33 (2 years ago) Permalink

last year (or maybe even longer ago) i heard some new track that was based on uptempo live breaks and had this huge synth build, it sounded really fresh. i can remember what it sounds like but don't have the slightest clue who it was. almost want to say FaltyDL but i don't think that's right.

40oz of tears (Jordan), Tuesday, 28 February 2012 21:50 (2 years ago) Permalink

That Objekt track is a mad one to mix yeah. Its just swung, broken and fuck'd tho. Its all on one tempo and all that. You just have to catch it right.

In other news...

Coki is still insane.

jimitheexploder, Wednesday, 29 February 2012 01:36 (2 years ago) Permalink

i really can't wait to hear the footwork/shangaan remixes.

Alexandre Dumbass (dog latin), Wednesday, 29 February 2012 12:27 (2 years ago) Permalink

This is killing me: the song featured in last week's Dusk & Blackdown Rinse mix that samples The Breakfast Club - "Well, if you say you haven't, you're a prude. If you say you have you're a slut. It's a trap. You want to but you can't, and when you do you wish you didn't, right?" Anybody? Thanks.

viborg, Saturday, 3 March 2012 17:37 (2 years ago) Permalink

I'm really enjoying that Scuba album but it seems to be pandering directly to the people who claimed dubstep was really just nu-skool breaks all along, the whole thing is so late 90s I keep expecting it to come with a subscription to Jockey Slut. Very enjoyable though.

Homosexual Satan Wasp (Matt DC), Sunday, 4 March 2012 15:36 (2 years ago) Permalink

i don't dislike the scuba album (certainly not as much as some seem to) but it's like, i heard and loved better big-room electrohouse the first time round so ehhhh

lex pretend, Sunday, 4 March 2012 23:21 (2 years ago) Permalink

It feels more 90s maximalism than big room electrohouse to me, although that was borrowing pretty heavily from 90s maximalist crossover dance in the first place.

Homosexual Satan Wasp (Matt DC), Monday, 5 March 2012 08:37 (2 years ago) Permalink

I've only heard 'Hope', and yeah I love it. I don't really care whether it's dubstep or whatever. It does have a bit of an Underworld (not sure, someone like that?) vibe, but I don't see it as a bad thing.

I was actually popping my head in to say that Burial's 'Kindred' was quietly soundtracking my weekend and boy, I'm pretty sure it's the most affecting thing he's ever done.

Alexandre Dumbass (dog latin), Monday, 5 March 2012 10:23 (2 years ago) Permalink

Scuba album is bad. Came at it overflowing with good faith but its done nothing for me. Prog breaks were manky in 2001, i dont want a rewind. Doesnt even have the production values that made some of it bearable.

straightola, Monday, 5 March 2012 17:59 (2 years ago) Permalink

i've never been too crazy about scuba - that album cover screams disaster, though. cross-reference with:

the late great, Monday, 5 March 2012 18:25 (2 years ago) Permalink

i don't even really like his mixes that much - the ostgut ton one is too subtle and grey, the dj kicks is somehow simultaneously hectic and bland, like "de9: closer to the edit" for the dubstep set

those first tracks, like "harpoon", were sort of brilliant in the pre-"midnight request line" era but since then it's been a whole lot of meh

the late great, Monday, 5 March 2012 18:28 (2 years ago) Permalink

^^ this is what the new scuba sounds like to me

the late great, Monday, 5 March 2012 18:35 (2 years ago) Permalink

^^ lol even better

the late great, Monday, 5 March 2012 18:35 (2 years ago) Permalink

i mean he's not quite there yet with the acoustic guitar and the vocalists but give him time

the late great, Monday, 5 March 2012 18:37 (2 years ago) Permalink

ha. speaking of guitar, i'm glad to see some airhead stuff is getting released: http://www.randsrecords.com/airhead/wait-south-congress

although it's kind of weird/interesting that 'wait' is being presented as a regular track rather than a yeah yeah yeahs remix?

btw i think this might have been egyptrixx? still can't find the track though, so who knows.

Need some more big n bassy recommendations please. Basically the only music hitting the spot for me recently is stuff like Blawan, Kromestar, Burial, that Dub Phizix & Skeptical track I put up here earlier, Mala's recent one...

Would I liek the DVA album?

Scary Move 4 (dog latin), Thursday, 8 March 2012 17:13 (2 years ago) Permalink

The DVA album suprised me, I wasn't expecting it to be as good as it is. Some killer stuff on there. There is a stream of it going around: http://www.xlr8r.com/news/2012/03/stream-dvas-forthcoming-album if you want a listen. Loads of nice vocal tracks.

I've been playing Brey a lot

http://vimeo.com/37531768

If you want something on that Blawan tip go for the last 12" on Punch Drunk by Tessela: http://punchdrunkmusic.com/products-page/featured-products/tessela-d-jane-channel-punch-drunk-12-free-mp3/ kinda like where Blawan left off with Fram/Iddy. Man I really wanna hear more of that from Blawan.

How about some Akkord for that deep vibe: http://soundcloud.com/akkordmusik/akkord001

New LHF EP just dropped an its quality, hold tight for the album its fucking brilliant.
