Psymbionic – PostWaveFutureCore Remixed

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , on May 17, 2013 by E.N.

Psymbionic - PostWaveFutureCore RemixedLove & Light set a futuristic soundscape with an understated psi-fi excursion into Dubstep realms, the mood picks up quickly after that with Samples crunching bits with a glitchy banger take on the tune ‘Inertia’. On the deeper side Aligning Minds provides lushed out landscapes of dubby atmosphere set to rhythmic urban beats. Knight Riderz then pound out a Trap slammer that has already proven to get dancefloors bouncing. Dov then comes in with a Drum & Bass version of ‘Apex’ with reworked horns utilizing dancehall influences and then dropping into an epic wobbly bassline drop. Hypha rounds things off with a gorgeous tune that goes even further ‘out there’ with a tune or what could also fall into ‘Future-Bass’ , ‘Slowfast’ or ‘Juke’ genre descriptions. All in all a thorough journey through some of Bass Musics sub-genres.

Tokyo, Japan: 2013. In a city where time and space can easily become uncontrollable factors, the underground electronic music scene has built its own culture and society for more than 30 years. Taking and incorporating influences from all over the world, the creations born from Japan’s underground continue to stay highly unique and maintain a clear sense of being deeply Japanese. ENA has been a multi-instrumentalist artist, studio engineer, DJ and producer for more than a decade now. The author of three acclaimed 12” releases over the past three years on the 7even Recordings imprint, his rare output has always impressed by the uniqueness of his sound and the high level of studio technique in his production. ENA has been tying the old to the new by blending diverse influences such as Dub music, early Drum & Bass, Dubstep, Techno and Abstract Hip Hop. He’s gained support from major players such as Surgeon, Laurent Garnier, A Made Up Sound, Pangaea, Goth-Trad and Peverelist to name but a few.

This first full-length album, “Bilateral”, is a visionary piece of music emerging from the studio of a very unique creator. Uncompromising, the 12 original tracks which compose “Bilateral” are the soundtrack of today’s Tokyo underground, the sound of a city of light and obscurity, stability and disequilibrium, stagnancy and full speed, the past, the present and the future. Press play and enter the world of one of the most creative composers of this generation.

AFRICA – The Remixes EP

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on February 1, 2013 by E.N.

AFRICA - The Remixes EP“Africa is in my heart!”
The mighty Trojan Sound System need no introduction. Spearheaded from Trojan Records, an explosive influential musical force, legendary label and household name across the UK and worldwide for over forty years, the duo are infamous pioneers, rocking dub, reggae and bass riddims on dance floors across the world, their roll call reads like a who’s who hall of fame of quality original Reggae and Bass Culture, they are the originators. the instigators and mayhem makers of what we have now come to know as ‘UK Bass Culture’. Their star shines brightly.
Now with an all-new live production set up alongside an audiophile approach to vinyl playback duo Earl Gateshead and Daddy Ad produced an electrifying body of brand new material in the shape of their freshly released EP – ‘Africa’ .
 With all five limited edition 12” tracks from the EP selling out in a matter of days and anthemic lead single “Africa” entering straight into the Juno Reggae Charts at No.1 last year, Trojan Sound System now prepare to digitally release a full remix and riddims EP featuring rub downs from the likes of Toddla T, JFB and Darkstarr Diskotek which brings together all vinyl releases to date and more available digitally for the first time on the 24thFebruary, alongside a plethora of full live and Dex N FX shows across Europe.
 
“Africa” is written and produced by the pair with Superfour and is a track not shy of ripping the roof off the most dance worthy festival tents and club nights, commanding public demand with all stock of the limited edition Africa 12″s disappearing in no time to become highly rare and valuable collectors items.
The song reflects the deep felt need which all people of African descent, now living all over the world feel for their original homeland. This desire was first expressed by Marcus Garvey, while he was living in the USA where he proposed the building of a string of ‘Black Star Liner’ ships, to take the people back to their motherland. Although the song concerns the wishes and hopes of Africans, anyone who feels alienated or dispossessed, can empathise with the yearning to be somewhere else, either on this planet, or beyond it, which underpins the track lyrically and musically.
 
Aside from the original vocal track and instrumental on the outer cuts, the track also has two killer remixes from legendary dance music producers, Darkstarr Diskotek (aka Ashley Beedle and Colleen ‘Cosmo’ Murphy), using their vast experience and talent as some of the world’s most qualified DJs to stretch the original in to an extended dance floor arrangement and work out. The second mix comes from DMC champ and Drum and Bass and Dubstep producer extraordinaire, JFB, taking the musical vibe of “Africa” into strictly bad bwoy Junglist territory.

TROJAN SOUND SYSTEM
REMIXES: AFRICA EP
RELEASE DATE: 24th FEBRUARY

AFRICA EP REMIXES TRACK LISTING:

1 – Africa (Darkstarr Diskotek Dubplate Extension)
2 – Africa (JFB’s Junglist Remix)
3 – Africa (Original Riddim)
4 – My God (Toddla T vs. TSS Vocal)
5 – My God (Toddla T vs TSS Dub Version)
6 – My God (Toddla T vs. TSS Riddim)
7 – Turn to the East (Original Riddim)
8 – Turn to the East (JFB’s Dubstep Remix)

Turn to the East” was written by Superfour, TSS’s energetic and blind vocalist with conscious lyrics and a passionate delivery. The heartfelt chorus is sung by Chucky Banton. The title is inspired by the biblical reference “Look to the east for the coming of a black king” and celebrates numerous black aspirations. Musically, it uses contemporary forms to produce the feel of an ‘80s roots 12” with overpowering bass driving it throughout. Two times DMC champ and Beardyman collaborator, JFB, unleashes a relentless dubstep remix of the track.
“My God” was written by Jah Buck, who takes the lead vocal. He expresses his and the sound system’s roots and reality view on the world we live in and their belief in a higher guidance and heartical approach to the challenges we all face on a daily basis. Toddla T has taken this straight to the dance floor and beyond with a truly unique and explosive treatment that brings authentic reggae and contemporary dance floors together. Trojan Sound System premiered their Dancehall version of “My God” at a sell out show at Scala last year and turned a jumping 600 strong reggae crowd into a mosh pit.
The new TSS material has been smashing up dance floors left, right and left of center. With real instruments, real musicians and quality production, the result cuts through the Dance music and Reggae clutter to deliver anauthentic and futuristic Reggae and Bass Culture vibe that gets every floor moving and jumping.
To celebrate the launch of the Africa Remixes EP legendary street artist Mau Mau has produced brand new Trojan Sound System logos and t-shirts, which are available now through THTC http://www.thtc.co.uk

Fearful – Santura / Gorilla

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , on November 30, 2012 by E.N.

Fearful - Santura  GorillaFearful are a duo from Brighton rapidly emerging onto the bass music circuit. Their style is an eclectic fusion of sleek, subterranean basslines and hard-hitting beats.

2012 has seen them gain the support of an impressive list of DJs and, with a number of respected labels now sitting up and taking notice, the boys seem to be manoeuvring into position to take the scene by storm

Santura is the sound of Fearful getting out of the wrong side of bed, grumpy and brooding. A bear with a sore head plods determinedly through a forest of chunky drum breaks, wrapped in a duvet of stomach-churning sub-bass before waking up during the breakdown to deliver a tantalisingly glitchy finish. This track has already caught the ear of Amoss and Renegade Hardware’s DJ Nyx

Gorilla shows a different side to Fearful, in the form of an outrageously gritty, groovy stepper which has picked up DJ support from the likes of Amoss, Phil Hustle, Cursa and Philth.

Drone – Membrane EP

Posted in News with tags , , , , , on November 27, 2012 by E.N.

Bass Command
Drone
Membrane EP
Release Date – 13/12/2012

For Bass Commands first release they turn to exclusive artist Drone.
Hailing from Melbourne Australia it’s a big surprise to hear this is Drone’s debut release. He is sure to be a hit and tipped as a future star by many on the DnB scene. All we can say so far is this is going to be the first of many releases from this producer.
Already with radio airplay across various worldwide stations and growing hype with the online community the title track Membrane has already received great reactions from the likes of Hype, Krust and EBK.
Membrane is a smooth deep thinking tune with subtle synth stabs and a beautifully crafted rumbling bass, with progression that has been described as nothing short of quality. One for the Liquid and Intelligent scenes for sure.
Drone follows the title track with Answered Prayers another intelligent piece that that flows big time with a relentless bass that keeps giving and giving. This tune certainly sucks you in and spits you out the other side.
In addition to the original of Membrane comes the X-ecute remix. Set to counter the relaxed chilled vibes of the original X-ecute brings his unique style of tuff as fuck beats in a not quite Crossbreed not quite Breakcore but definitely hardcore sounding stomping remix. One for the raves for certain. X-ecute has been smashing the airwaves with his resident show on Dutch radio Gabber Fm and this remix fits the hard edge sound perfectly.
