FACT mix 124 – spatial

Posted in 2 Step, Dub Step, Funky on February 15, 2010 by J.D.

We’re not really down with this future garage buzzword, but if there’s one person’s music you could apply it to and not look like a tit, it’s spatial.

Spatial helms the Infrasonics record label, a hugely underrated imprint in FACT’s books who’ve put out three excellent spatial singles now, plus a Hot City vs Ike Release EP that’s arguably the best thing either artist have had their name attached to.

His own music meanwhile treads that line between techno and garage that’s so popular, but with wild moments of low-end experimentation that remind us of Dorian Concept and Shed. The last 10” spatial release in particular, last year’s ‘90729’/’90807’ is a mournful space station epic with skip for days, and we couldn’t recommend it more.

XLR8R Podcast 122: Jubilee

Posted in 2 Step, Dj Mix, Dub Step, Electronic, Funky, Grime, XLR8R Podcast on February 7, 2010 by J.D.

Until now, the 2010 XLR8R Podcast series has been filled by heavy hitters from overseas, but we haven’t lost sight of all the great DJs on our own side of the pond. Take Jubilee (a.k.a. Jess Gentile), who regularly whips dancefloors into a frenzy with her rambunctious combination of bass-heavy electro, upfront house, UK funky, and plenty of tropical flavor that can be traced back to her younger days as a Miami Bass-worshipping Florida raver. Jubilee currently sets up shop in Brooklyn, where she heads up the Nightshifters label with Jason Forrest and the monthly Flashing Lights party with Nick Catchdubs and DJ Ayres. And if you’re in Brooklyn tonight, you can catch her headlining our monthly TURRBOTAX® party, where she’ll undoubtedly be serving up a mix just as sizzling as this one.

FACT mix 87: Noodles

Posted in 2 Step, Dub Step, Grime, Headz, Hip Hop, Hits Remixed, Nu Jazz, Podcast, UK Garage on September 28, 2009 by J.D.

FACT Mix 87 comes from the man behind 2step legends Groove Chronicles and the associated DPR label, Noodles.

Steven Jude to those who know him best, Noodles is one of our favourite DJs and producers in the UK, and his FACT mix only puts him higher in that hierarchy. He founded Groove Chronicles in 1996, and it quickly established itself at the vanguard of UK club music, releasing a series of phenomenal tracks engineered by El-B. A distillation of R&B, jungle, broken beat and house influences, their 1998 single ‘Stone Cold’ is widely regarded as the creative high watermark of UK garage, and Burial speaks often of his admiration for it.

Noodles continues to operate the Groove Chronicles/DPR label, releasing new music alongside archive classics [we asked him, and ‘Stone Cold’ is getting re-issued on vinyl, before you ask – Ed]. His FACT mix features material from himself, MJ Cole, Menta, Sunship, Architeches and more ghosts of UK garage past. We’d suggest you download it, so long as you like stuff like dancing and fun.

FACT mix 83: El-B

Posted in 2 Step, Bass, Dub Step, Grime, Podcast on September 14, 2009 by J.D.

This Monday’s exclusive FACT mix comes from El-B, one of UK garage’s defining figures and a touchstone for early dubstep.

As one half of Groove Chronicles with Noodles, and then with his Ghost crew, El-B brought giddy low end pressure and sharp, Photek style editing to the skippy, viscous rhythms of UK garage, unwittingly laying the foundations for dubstep in the process. Tracks like ‘Stone Cold’, ‘Serious’ and his remix of Zed Bias’s ‘Neighborhood’ have become touchstones for fans of 2step, grime, funky house and beyond – revered by modern producers like Burial. For evidence, check Tempa’s Roots of El-B compilation, compiled by Rinse DJ and all around bass blogger Martin ‘Blackdown’ Clark.

His FACT mix consists of his headline set from our last party. He’s solo for the most part, then he’s joined by his former partner in Groove Chronicles, Noodles, for the last quarter of an hour – and the first time the two have DJed back to back at a club for what, a decade? Tracks from Hard House Banton, MJ Cole and more feature alongside new dubs from El-B’s Ghost label, and yes, it does feature ‘Stone Cold’. Without wanting to sound too much like fannies, this mix is a little bit of history. It’s not too often you can say that about something you can download in twenty minutes. MCing by Raw Smilez.
