• The festival takes place from Weds 3rd – Sun 7th September 2014

Outlook Festival returns to Croatia this September after last year’s best ever event to date, a celebratory fusion of dub, reggae, hip-hop, drum ‘n’ bass, garage, house and more on the dazzling Adriatic coast. Joining the dots between musical legends right through to the next generation of up and coming talent, again some of the finest live acts and DJs descend upon a 19th century fort for five days and nights of amazing music. Close to the historic city of Pula in Croatia’s northern region of Istria, the now iconic Outlook sets the agenda with a world-class array of performers in a collection of truly spectacular locations, set in and around an abandoned fort. Choose from a dungeon, a courtyard, a moat, a boat, the beach or the festival’s main stage set on a harbour. Outlook combines a heady mix of fun in the sun and under the stars as a dedication to sound culture, which has just revealed its first wave of names.

Catacombs & Demon ‘MUV005’ (Macabre Unit )31st May

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on May 2, 2013 by dk

MUVD005AMUV005 is Catacombs’ second outing on wax. The release itself sets a new benchmark for the MUV imprint, and for Catacombs too as ‘Music Mi Luv’ and ‘Badman Culture pt. 2’ show the young producer relishing a new found energy and pleasure in rhythmic expression, with the former’s perfectly levelled bob and weave and the latter’s quick step and dark techno aesthetic. That both beats have been go-to tunes for two of dubstep’s foundational DJs Hatcha and Youngsta is a testament to the balance they strike between defining a current sound and giving a nod to its future. ‘Cursed’ and ‘Searcher’, both collaborations with label head Demon, combine Catacombs enormous kicks and precise sense of atmosphere and movement with Demon’s penchant for razor-sharp Reese basslines.

Inspired by drum and bass artists such as Noisia, Ed Rush and Optical, and Bad Company, his early productions set about fusing morphing basslines, with the kind of 140 you’d expect from Loefah or Kryptic Minds. Ever expanding on his own sounds, his more recent productions attempt to recreate the cold sound of dark techno such as Oscar Mulero and Raiz, at dubstep tempo. Having first been noticed on Distance’s new talent section in 2011, Catacombs dubs have found themselves in the sets of Youngsta, Hatcha, N-Type, Joe Nice, Anti-Social, Biome, Jack Sparrow and Truth, on radio stations such as BBC 1Xtra, Kiss, Sub FM and Rinse.

Just shy of two years old, both the M.U.D and M.UV imprints have already established themselves as buy-on-sight labels for discerning dubstep heads, earning nominations for Best New Label and Best Label in the 2011 and 2012 Dubstepforum Awards respectively and effectively furthering the crew or ‘family’ aspect of the Unit as it grows to include a passionate and dedicated fanbase who consistently push each release to the top of the sales charts.

Release Date: 31st May 2013
Format: 12” Vinyl / Digital

1. Catacombs – Music Mi Luv
2. Catacombs – Badman Culture
3. Demon & Catacombs – Cursed
4. Demon & Catacombs – Searcher (Exclusive to the digital)

Truth – Puppets Album on Aquatic Lab Records(LABCD002)September 6th +free mixes

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on August 12, 2010 by dk

The theory that isolation breeds creativity has never been as apt as it is in Truth’s case.”
– Mary Anne Hobbs (BBC Radio 1)

Truth, undoubtedly New Zealand’s greatest dubstep export; release their debut album Puppets through Australian label Aquatic Lab. Following two 12″ releases on Aquatic Lab, their first full length takes the dubstep sound back to its weighty roots, reminiscent of foundational half-step rollers submerged in sub-bass, twisted into their own signature blend of edgy attitude and dub-wise sentiment.

Truth is Andre Ferndandez, Tristan Roake and Julian Van Uden. Hailing from Christchurch NZ, one of the world’s most southern cities, the theory that isolation breeds creativity has never been as apt as it is for Truth.

“We’ve been producing music together for ten years, and were introduced to the sound of dubstep by Mala (Digital Mystikz). Originally we met through a shared love of music, always bumping in to each other at the same gigs in the late 90s. A couple of years later we decided to start producing music together and things have flowed from there. When Mala played us his releases on Deep Medi a few years back, the style appealed to us immediately, and we were inspired to start making music which worked within the dubstep sound.”

Truth’s music encompasses an array of melodies, vocals and spacious beats that range from rumbling half-step stompers into deeper, profound realms. One common element underpins every track though: a heavy bassline riddim.

They go on to state, “Puppets is an album which aims to give the listener a snapshot of the Truth sound as it currently stands. This is sub-oriented bass music, meant to be turned up loud! The vibe is dark and a little bit cinematic in places. Overall the album is a combination of big dance floor tunes for the club and some deeper darker numbers to put people on edge. It’s also definitely a listening album, meant to be appreciated in its entirety.”

Truth’s dubplates have received DJ support around the globe from artists such as Mala, Skream, Joe Nice, Hatcha and N-Type, with their beats being dropped at shows from Club Love in New York City to DMZ in London, as well as featuring on radio stations BBC Radio One, Kiss and Rinse FM.

Truth’s productions have been quickly snatched up by a number of established labels such as Mala’s seminal label Deep Medi Musik and Skream’s Disfigured Dubz label. Truth has also recently released a 12” on Boka Records, along with remixes for artists such as The Nextmen, Ms Dynamite and Silverclub. Alix Perez included his collaboration with Truth on his debut album ‘1984’.

Two comprehensive Europe tours and a string of gigs around America, Australia and Asia, have included an appearance at the foundational DMZ night in Brixton and the infamous Sub Dub in Leeds.
