The Others
‘Red Planet’
(Dub Police)
 Release Date: 21st Dec 2012
The Others - Red Planet
Since debuting on Boka records back in 2007, The Others, AKA Alex Crawford, has come a long way. In the five years since his first release on Dub Police – the acclaimed ‘Africa’ EP in the same year – his prolific work rate and consistently high quality output has made him the most released artist on label and an integral part of its core, as well as a lynchpin in an ever-evolving dubstep scene. A series of impressive original productions, not to mention a number of standout high-profile remixes over the last few years are now set to culminate in his debut artist album for the label, ‘Red Planet’.
Over twelve tracks, ‘Red Planet’ gives The Others the canvas to showcase the full breadth of his talents like never before. Amalgamating the many influences that inform his productions, the album’s dubstep backbone is bolstered by glimpses of breakbeat, jungle, techno and progressive house, resulting in a brilliantly crafted and coherent artistic statement. Filled with light and shade, impact and intricacy, ‘Red Planet’ is much more than a collection of club tracks; this is an album in the truest sense of the word.
‘Go’ provides an apt introduction to the album setting a sweeping futuristic backdrop to the album as Crawford carefully layers new elements to craft a constantly evolving technoid powerhouse. This swiftly morphs into last year’s huge single ‘First Flight’, a fiery rave mutation for the bass generation that plays its ecstatic synth lines off against a snarling beast of a bassline. Latest single ‘Freeze The Frame’ featuring Geoff Smith on vocals further explores these rave-influenced sounds as soaring synth lines collide with sharp drums and tough bass flourishes in fine style.
Joined by Joker on production duties, ‘Spaceman’ journeys further into outer space with its combination of playful synths and funk-fuelled rhythm before ‘Showdown / Polaris’ brings things crashing back down to earth with its techy synths and menacing bass swipes, asserting The Others’ underground legacy with supreme conviction. Teaming up with label mate Emalkay on ‘Fallout’, The Others continues to push this signature style into new and unchartered territory, delivering a dark and deadly tearout cut that has already been getting Radio1 support from Skream & BengaMistaJam and Eddy Temple Morris. Built on a rigid, incisive rhythm, the industrial bassline slashes through the track viciously against a backdrop of undulating subs.
Moving into the second half of the album, ‘Antithesis’ featuring Stamina takes things deeper driven by rattling jungle breaks and clean subs before ‘Stargate’’s powerful rhythm unwinds into a twisting mixture of trippy synths and snarling bass notes. Opening things out once again, ‘The Way You Make Me’ draws on elements of progressive house and classic rave to bring a sense of anthemic euphoria to his powerful soundsystem shaking productions and has been winning strong support from scene tastemakers Skream & Benga. Utilising bright synths, twinkling keys and an emotive vocal hook to offset the stark drums and warping bassline, it is as evocative as it is ferocious giving The Others a chance to showcase his melodic prowess and songwriting abilities.
Moving into the final quarter, ‘Feel It’ featuring Breakage keeps the energy levels high using driving breakbeat rhythms and diva vocals as its motor before ‘One Man Show’ takes things down, allowing Crawford to bring to light a different side to his capabilities. Built around Lonette Charles’ effortlessly soulful vocals it articulates a more poignant streak to the album with its shuffling rhythm, warm piano melody and loose jazz inflections. Fittingly that leaves the title-track to play out the album, doing so in epic style as it explodes in a flurry of electric synths backed by its deep bass tones.
Having proved his worth as amongst the most versatile and exciting producers around, ‘Red Planet’ is set to propel him to the upper echelons of dance music.

Youngman Official Video ‘Who Knows?’ (Skream-produced single)

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on December 22, 2011 by dk

Youngman announces release of hotly anticipated new single ‘Who Knows?’ on January 29th 2012.
London singer with close connections to Magnetic Man will release single on Shy FX’s Digital Soundboy label.

Youngman, one of the UK’s most exciting and vibrant young vocal talents, has today announced the release of his eagerly awaited new single ‘Who Knows?’ on Shy FX’s Digital Soundboy label.
Mixing Youngman’s powering and distinctive vocal with the pulsating sonic workings of long time friend and collaborator Skream (Magnetic Man), ’Who Knows?’ blurs the lines between underground club smash and credible mainstream hit, having already been named Zane Lowe’s ‘Next Hype’, MistaJam’s ‘Jam Hot’ and Annie Mac’s ‘Record Of The Week’.
With a career that is still in its infancy, Youngman (Simon Smith) has already made his mark as a standout vocalist in the drum’n’bass, and dubstep scenes, working closely with his father Simon ‘Bassline’ Smith plus Breakage and regular live collaborator Benga. He is indeed already a seasoned live performer having graced the stages of Glastonbury, Creamfields, Exit, Lovebox, Global Gathering and across Europe, Australia & North America.
Having become the choice hype man for Skream & Benga, Youngman became a master of working an audience, with his presence as a performer and his inimitable singing voice coming to the fore; it wasn’t long before Skream & Benga turned their attentions to channelling Youngman’s talents into a unique and fresh vocal sound.
‘Who Knows’ is the second offering from Youngman and comes in the wake of his debut street single ‘Tear It Out’/’I Warned Ya’ getting massive support in clubs and radio, with the likes of Radio 1, 1Xtra and Rinse FM all throwing their weight behind the track. With an album in the making titled ‘Me & My Music’, set for release next year the producer credits read like a who’s who of British music, with the likes of Benga, Skream, Shy FX, Breakage, MJ Cole, Sam Frank and Kutz all contributing.
Whilst working away in the studo, Simon has also found time to extended his creative and entrepreneurial skills by designing his own successful clothing range and spearheading a new education scheme ‘Music & Life Workshops’ back in his home town Derby.
With a full schedule of live dates throughout November, December and January with Benga and  Skream, as well as nationwide solo PA performances including 1Xtra Live on 30th Nov, Youngman is primed to cement himself as the next breakthrough underground star.

Caspa returns with Fulham 2 Waterloo, August 1st ,Dub Police 50(Preview)+Tour Dates

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on May 31, 2011 by dk


Having passed the landmark half century in releases for Dub Police it’s time to celebrate and what better way to do so then to hand the reigns over to label head Caspa for the big 50!

Following the release of the anthemic ‘Back For The First Time’ last summer on Sub Soldiers – which was vocalled by Mr Hudson as ‘Love Never Dies’ and the brutal ‘Neck Snappah’ earlier this year, Caspa returns with the huge ‘Fulham 2 Waterloo’.

Driven by a hard 4×4 kick and galloping snares, the rhythm is overlaid with the snap of the half step snare providing an impactful percussive counterpoint that flips between house and dubstep. With the tough dancefloor foundations laid, it is the sharp, rave-inflected lead hook that provides an addictive rallying cry for club audiences everywhere.

Having first been aired by Annie Mac on Radio 1 back in February, it has been getting heavy club support from Atrak, Breakage, Mista Jam, Annie Mac, Zinc and Emalkay to name a few and with forthcoming rubdowns from Roska and Emalkay Fulham 2 Waterloo is set to storm the summer soundsystem airwaves.

As the man behind Dub Police and affiliated labels Storming Productions and Sub Soldiers, and an irrefutably top class producer in his own right, Caspa’s influence on the scene is profound. His continuing musical evolution and willingness to champion new talent has marked him out as an international

ambassador for dubstep as he continues to spread some of the most exciting sounds to come out of the UK in years.

Fresh back from Coachella Caspa now hits the road with an epic list of heavyweight forthcoming tour dates including Glastonbury where he will provide another outing of his’ Dubs, Decks and Visual FX’ multi sensory assault, followed onwards by Global Gathering and Creamfields amongst a massive run of forthcoming festivals and worldwide shows that take him to every corner of the globe, not to mention a 14 date tour throughout the USA in August which will be hitting some major venues alongside Digitalism.

Touring is just the tip of the Iceberg, Caspa still finds time to host a bi-monthly night at the world famous Fabric and not content with running 3 labels, producing dancefloor bomb after dancefloor bomb and the acclaimed album ‘Everybody’s Talking, Nobody’s Listening’, his remix skills are in higher demand than ever, remixing for the likes of Katy B, Buraka Som Sistema, Deadmau5, Miike Snow, Swedish House Mafia, Depeche Mode, Kid Sister to name just a few.

Download: Beetnik – “Canned Heat” (Mixtape)

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on May 3, 2011 by dk


An electro blender set to 11 that is similar to surfing on an analog synthesiser through an electronic tidal wave with a party-fuelled jet pack strapped to your back.

Playing drums and guitar at an early age meant that Beetnik’s, born Nicky Low, musical tastes were firmly in the rock spectrum, until a visit to Ibiza as a fresh-faced 17-year-old.

The island was a home away from home that allowed Nicky to sample a wide range of music, including house, electro, techno, hard dance and chill-out.

Being in Ibiza, for months at a time, gave the budding producer the chance to soak up the sounds from the world’s best DJs, in the world’s greatest clubs, and gave him an intrinsic knowledge of what works on a dancefloor.

An accomplished DJ himself, Nicky has been DJing in and around Glasgow for about 4 years and more recently, the twisted electro sounds of people like Boys Noize, SebastiAn, Soulwax, Tiga, Justice and Digitalism caught his imagination.

Leading him to create his so-called ”twisted underground electro sound” under the Beetnik moniker, that became popular on various forums, and ink a deal with New York City-based record label ModyWorks in early 2009.

His second release for the ModyWorks label, a 4-track EP titled Sound, is coming out next month. In the meantime here is the link to his Hoodlum single on BEATPORT.

Brooklyn based Elucid opens 2011 with part one of Super Chocolate Black Simian, a two-part mixtape representing hip-hop’s voice of the future present. Over production by Breakage, Lorn, El-P, Jamie Vex’d, Mexicans With Guns, Skream and more, Elucid thrashes out with facemelting lyricism. Heavy warped dub textures complement Elucid’s sonic assault which touch on themes of fear, terror, control and desire in the information age.   

The project is mixed and mangled by Concrète Sound System’s Primus Luta, pushing what Gutta refers to as “noise terrorism” to its glorious breaking point.
