Optimo Fabric 52

Posted in Deep Tech, Dub Techno, Dubstep, Eclectic, Electronic, Experimental, House, Mix, News, Techno, UK Funky, Various with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on March 25, 2010 by J.D.

JD Twitch and JG Wilkes, better known as Optimo, have been tapped to mix Fabric 52.

The Glaswegian duo are known for their wide-ranging and atypical track selection, which often mixes up post-punk, disco and experimental music with contemporary house and techno, as heard on their 2007 mix Walkabout. But for Fabric 52, the pair chose a slightly different tack, focusing more than usual on club tracks.

“We’ve been fortunate enough in the past that labels have let us experiment a bit and put together selections that make really diverse and sometimes quite difficult mixes,” says Wilkes. “With Fabric 52, we were really excited by the idea of a dance floor-centric mix of tracks.”

Surefire Sound 002 – Headhunter, DJG, XI, Djunya

Posted in Dubstep, Electronic with tags , , , , , , on March 19, 2010 by J.D.

Surefire Sound (SFS002)
Format: Vinyl / Digital
Release date: vinyl out now, digital release on April 5th

Surefire Sound’s second single release features four heavyweight producers representing the UK and North America. This innovative tag-team set brings together dub-tech pioneers collaborating on a pair of earth-moving tracks.

Leading off the release is the UKs Tony Williams, a.k.a. Headhunter, a veteran Bristol producer with numerous releases on Tempa, alongside Joseph S. Hanks Jr, (Djunya to his mates) a stalwart SF artist whose tracks on Narco.Hz, Lo Dubs and Eight FX have established him as a major player. Combing the best of their respective spacious and spacey sounds, “El Presidente” is a luminous, rolling track, equipped with pulsating bass and reverberating synth stabs. It’s truly King Tubby-style dub for the 21st century. The track is getting massive advance play from artists like Jus Wan, F and Mary Anne Hobbs, to name a few.

SF’s Dean J. Grenier, a.k.a. DJG has risen quickly in the electronic ranks via singles on Tube 10, Subway and Narco Hz that showcase his potent techy tracks. He links up with Toronto, Canada’s XI, whose releases on Formant and Immerse have lead to mixes for Sonic Router and a growing international following. “Putney Says” features an intricate, percussive rhythm that lumbers like a giant, each step punctuated by mountainous bass thumps. Sizzling analog synths, vaporous filtered pads and well-timed drops round out this effective and tension-building work.
