Surefire Sound 003 – Distal / HxdB / Mayhem (preview)

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , on December 27, 2010 by J.D.

Surefire Sound’s third release features three up-and-coming producers from two points on the map: Distal and Mayhem hailing from Atlanta, Georgia and HxdB from Vancouver, Canada. Collaborating together, this trio brings together a pair of innovative tracks that exemplify the exciting future of dubstep and bass music in 2011.

Leading off the release is Michael Rathbun a.k.a. Distal, a rising star in the next wave of bass music producers and founding member of Atlanta Dubstep, a collective that has been introducing dubstep’s top artists to the southeast United States since 2007. Through their events and newly founded label Embassy Recordings, Distal has established his own dynamic that integrates dubstep with Chicago’s juke sounds, and has started to make quite an impression on the global scene with a release on Soul Jazz’s Future Bass compilation, as well as Amsterdam’s Tube 10 Recordings, among others.

Collaborating on the A side is Severine Erickson, a.k.a. HxdB (short for Hexadecibel). Channeling his creative energies from his own pocket of North America, HxdB has been a hardworking DJ, producer, and promoter of the more sophisticated angles of bass music. With several 12” releases to his name on labels such as Mindset and Echodub, and plenty more coming in the new year, he is ready to make his mark on this release alongside Distal with “Typewriter Tune”. Its’ potent assault of shuffling beats and funk-infused pitch-warped synths was so well-received by their DJ mates that they amped up the energy into a VIP version with support from the likes of Bok Bok (Night Slugs, London), Ben UFO (Hessle Audio), Appleblim (Skull Disco), Dave Q (Dub War, NYC), XI (Orca), Sepalcure (Hotflush), and many more.

Working with Distal on the flipside is Anthony Rotella a.k.a. Mayhem, a long-time stalwart of the Atlanta scene coming from notable acclaim in the drum & bass arena. With recent dubstep releases on San Francisco’s Argon Records and Amsterdam’s Subway Recordings, Mayhem is clearly a producer with multiple talents. On “Frozen Barnacles”, they deliver a high-energy, yet heady half-stepper with warm filtered synths and dub-wise horns.

CAT #: SFS 003
Release date: January 24 2011
Format: 12” Vinyl, Digital

2. Mayhem & Distal – Frozen Barnacles

Miguel Toro-Kurduca (Piek Remix) by extramusicnew
Humberto Polar (Pantamuzik founder, member of Monopolar):
‘When I started Pantamuzik, back in 2000, no digital music downloads were sold at all, vinyl distribution was an insane investment in Latin America (still is) and nobody djed with CDs.
So, if you were a musician as I was, trying to establish an ethos about creating a real Latin-American breed of electronic music that didn’t sound like an idiot putting some congas on top of some loops, you had to be really patient and in good terms with your own suicidal tendencies, financially speaking.

Maybe Argentina and Chile had a bit more presence in the alternative dancefloors due to talented musicians and DJs that made a name in Europe such as Franco Cinelli, Pier Bucci or Ricardo Villalobos. But if you were a Peruvian, living in Colombia and heading to Mexico as I was, things looked much tougher.
But here we are. As we said in the very beginning, the world doesn’t need another dance music label, especially the Third World. But we did it anyway.

Eight CDs and 15 digital releases in a decade are not a lot, but they speak clearly about how carefully we choose the music we release. Whenever we believe in an artist or a track, we support that music with all our heart, playing it, spreading it no matter how difficult that is nowadays, in a polytonal world where everybody is able to make himself heard, for the good or the bad.

Now we live in Mexico City. Razz, another ex-pat, from Argentina joined me a couple of years ago and we spend long hours listening to demos from Colombia, Peru, Mexico, Costa Rica, Puerto Rico, Venezuela… sometimes we DJ our catalog in clubs in the city, the country, the continent – and we can’t help smiling when we realize that hundreds of people dance frenetically to this music we Latin-Americans love and understand. It’s very likely that no German or UK label would ever listened to the dudes we release, maybe yes… anyway, we are here for the love of our music and our culture and we hope we can survive many more years doing exactly the same.

03 Miguel Toro – Kurduca (Piek Remix)
