Typesun feat. Guido – Heart Maths (incl.Peverelist remix) Preview

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on August 2, 2012 by E.N.


Surfacing earlier this year with ‘Last Home‘ (the much loved opener to Futureboogie’s 10 Year Anniversary compilation), Bristol based producer, drummer & DJ Luke Harney aka Typesun has had his head down for a while. Working on a sound, pulling strands of musical experience together and letting it emerge in its own sweet time.

Heart Maths’, the first single to drop under the Typesun signature, came out of writing sessions with long-time collaborator & general Bristol hero Guido (State of Joy/Punch Drunk). The track presents a complementary mixture of the two artists’ trademark palettes: Guy’s rambunctious MIDI instrumentation & fierce square waves over Type’s signature rugged drum production & cinematic attention to detail.

In one of his most ‘dancefloor friendly’ offerings to date, the Peverelist remix keeps it sparse & subtle but pounding, whilst retaining the rich string harmonies & wistful traces of piano arpeggios from the original.

Multiverse Music is proud to announce the launch of a new imprint, World Of Wonders aka W.O.W! Joining the ranks of Tectonic, Kapsize, Build, Caravan, Subtext and Earwax – W.O.W is a home for Bristolian purple w0w’er Gemmy to showcase his infectious beats and production talent.

Having first appeared on Peverelist’s highly respected Punch Drunk imprint, Gemmy soon went on to release a number of underground dancefloor belters on the seminal Planet Mu imprint. Having established his particular shade of purple w0w alongside Bristol production peers Joker and Guido, Gemmy’s beats lean more to a dancefloor heavy cut.

Built to make the speakers bleed both ‘Jah Know’ and ‘They Live Under The Stairs’ cut through a system crisp, clean and deadly. Gemmy may have been quiet on the release front recently but it’s clear here that he’s been fine tuning his skills in the studio to devastating effect. Drop these riddims in your set and you’ll see the effects for yourself. Quality music made for the dance, perfectly executed. 2011 is going to be a good year for Gemmy, watch him rise up.

DJ Support from –

Mistajam, Joker, N-type, Guido, Plastician, MRK1, Baobinga, Chef and many more…

Gemmy’s official label launch night will take place the 1st of June at Basement 45, Bristol (UK)

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on January 14, 2011 by E.N.

The Brooklyn duo of Lauren Flax and Lauren Dillard emerged last year, and for better or worse were pretty much immediately lumped in with the nascent witch-house trend (the crucifix logo on their debut single was kind of asking for it). Said debut single, ‘Days’, was released by Young Turks and featured vocals from The xx‘s Romy Madley-Croft doing her breathy, gothy, lovelorn thing. The skittering 808s and sickly synths in their tracks are undeniably reminiscent of Salem, but Flax and Dillard’s production is altogether smoother and less fucked-up sound than that of their peers; unlike most drag, it doesn’t drag, it has a real 4/4 momentum to it; if anything, CREEP put the house in witch-house.

Punch Drunk presents: V/A – ‘Worth the Weight – Bristol Dubstep Classics’

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on September 23, 2010 by E.N.

I knew straight away that this was a sound that would fit perfectly in Bristol – there is a lot of tension in the music that carries a satisfactory darkness with it, but it’s also lazy music. You don’t have to dance hard to move with it – it was born with a reefer in its gob!”

So said Pinch when I interviewed him in February 2005. Having witnessed the early DMZ and FWD>> raves that spawned this new sound we now refer to as Dubstep, and having gradually begun integrating it into the fabric of Bristol’s existing club scene, this young DJ’s instincts were proving correct. The following month I attended one of his Context nights – a dubsession by Loefah and Skream, on one of their earliest forays outside the Capital – and experienced for myself the sheer physical impact of dubstep at soundsystem volume. But even that was just a hint of what was to come. In April, Subloaded II sent a subsonic shockwave through the city, as Bristol shuddered under the weight of DMZ’s bass meditations. Those who survived the onslaught were changed forever, and Bristol’s destiny as dubstep’s second city became assured.

May 2005 saw the debut release on Pinch’s Tectonic imprint, which was the first of many new dubstep labels to emerge from the city. Being so much smaller than London, Bristol’s new generation of bedroom DJs and producers mingled freely in a close-knit community centred around the Rooted Records shop and the new club spaces (Dubloaded, Sub- loaded, Ruffnek Diskotek, Noir, HENCH) which sprang-up over the following months to cater for this rapidly expanding scene. Beats and ideas were eagerly exchanged on freshly-burned cd-rs in a period of unprecedented communal activity and cooperation, which would ultimately draw in and re-energise many of the city’s older generation of bass-explorers. Indeed, Bristol’s historical association with bass-orientated music was a crucial factor in the formation of a distinct and cohesive sound that triggered a feedback-loop of influence back to both London and the world beyond.

Almost inevitably, the Bristol micro-scene outgrew it’s grassroots, as producer-DJs like Headhunter, Appleblim, Joker, RSD, Pinch and Peverelist soon found themselves playing venues all over the planet. Once again, the ‘Bristol Sound’ had become an international phenomenon. Yet even today the core community still comes together for the regular mid- week Dubloaded sessions, which remain a testament to this city’s unshakable sense of strength and solidarity, as SGT. Pokes (the Honorary Bristolian who led the first charge at Subloaded all those years ago) calls the monthly congrega- tion to prayer.

Guido & Peverelist remixes of Dubkasm : Sufferah’s Choice in assoc. w/ PUNCH DRUNK 12″ due Oct 2010(preview)

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , on August 15, 2010 by E.N.

Guido and Peverelist have produced special remixes of tracks from Dubkasm’s critically acclaimed Roots Reggae long player ‘Transform I’, which are due to drop on 12′ this October.

a: Dubkasm ft Ras Addis ‘Strictly Ital’ (Peverelist remix)
b: Dubkasm ‘Nyah Keith’ (Guido remix)

Nyah Keith Remix


Both remixes represent each producer’s signature style to reinvent and reinterpret the original tracks.

This will be Guido’s first outing on wax since his universally acclaimed debut album ‘Anidea’ earlier this summer.

The tracks are taken from the album Dubkasm ‘Transform I – remixed’ on Sufferah’s Choice Recordings, which is an album of Bristol Dubstep reinterpretations of the original Roots Reggae album featuring remixes from the likes of Pinch, Headhunter, Hyetal, Appleblim & Gatekeeper and more.

Even though he’s a member of Bristol’s much-discussed “Purple Trinity,” it didn’t feel like there was a ton of hype surrounding the release of Guido‘s debut full-length, Anidea, earlier this year. The initial buzz about Joker had already faded a bit, attentions had migrated back northward east toward London, and dubstep isn’t exactly known for its great albums anyways. Yet Anidea was a great record, one that found 22-year-old Guy Middleton transcending traditional dubstep circles with its alien melodies, chunky synths, hip-hop vibe, and budget horn sounds. It certainly reminded us to keep an eye on Bristol, and more importantly, to finally wrangle Guido into putting together an exclusive mix for the XLR8R podcast. Those familiar with his work won’t be disappointed, as he combines some of his own tracks with like-minded, bass- and synth-heavy productions, including plenty of selections from the Punch Drunk label he calls home.

Download: FACT mix 156 – Kode9

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on June 7, 2010 by E.N.


Today’s FACT mix comes from the man behind Hyperdub, and one of modern dance music’s most celebrated producers and DJs, Kode9.

Debuting on Tempa in 2002 with ‘Fat Larry’s Skank’, Kode9 has spent the last decade exploring an aesthetic that’s taken him from suffocating dread-filled dubstep to toxic house music. Along the way, he’s released a superb album (Memories of the Future, with frequent collaborator Spaceape) and become just as famous for his record label as his own productions: since Hyperdub’s inception in 2004, it’s released albums by Burial, Ikonika and King Midas Sound, and singles by Zomby, Terror Danjah, Cooly G, Mala and more.

This month, 9 will release the latest in K7’s DJ-Kicks series of mix CDs, a journey from elasticated house and dancehall, through soul, funk and hip-hop, to overbearing dubstep and grime. Kode is one of the world’s best DJs – his extended sets at Plastic People last year are spoken of with pure reverence, and this year he’s let out specialist mixes in 2step and “sino-grime”. Here he contributes a mix of “mostly ’94-’96 jungle”, bound by an icy, misty quality. Lemon D, DJ SS, Undercover Agent and more feature.

Next week, Hyperdub, Plat du Jour and FACT will be presenting an off-Sonar party at Club Mondo, Thursday 17 June. Already on the bill are Darkstar, Cooly G, Ikonika, Guido, Mweslee and Kode9 himself, plus Plat du Jour residents. There’s also a ton of special guests – to find out who, you’ll have to attend.
