Mark System drops a beast EP on Exit Recordings entitled “Break Glass.” From the EP’s self titled opener to the digital bonus track, “That Freestyle” System rolls out some sweet funk steppers that are a sweet tilt to classic tech step type rollers that came out in the early 00’s. “600 k” has some cool […]
Sometimes a producer nails the sound of the past in a single tune and Detboi did that, in spades, with Secret Venom. It perfectly captures *that* Metalheadz sound so perfectly that it could be dropped into the Platinum Breakz compilation from 1996 and it wouldn’t be out of place. I love that sound and this […]
J:Kenzo doing his show on Rinse FM. So many good tunes on this one. Starts off with dubstep for the first hour and then moves into some stepper style D&B. Both sets include a few of his own tunes. Don’t sleep on this mix. D/L link there too.
I’m not sure why Brazil, Brazilian music, and bossanova sounds always remind us of summer, but they do and I ain’t complaining. The DJ’s DJ, Bailey, drops a hearty 76 minute mix that’s chock full of the aforementioned sounds.
You know how there are those tunes that just seem to stick with you, somehow managing to endure the ever-changing aural landscape & inevitable evolution of your musical palate?? This is one of mine… Back when ‘Future Bass’ was still finding its legs, Kidnap Kid’s Lazarus Taxon was once my most listened to track on […]
Summer’s finally here, y’all! Time to bust out the swimsuit, hit the pool, & dive into another edition of Viper Recordings’ ‘Drum & Bass Summer Slammers’! Though the 8th installment of this annual compilation is chock-full of selections sure to please fans craving Viper’s signature style of in-your-face, bass heavy anthems, I tend to gravitate […]
Thanks to The Liberator for turning me onto this tune today. ABRA is an Atlanta-based R&B artist, but whomever is producing her stuff is really in-tuned to that UK Garage shuffle. One of the more subtle aspects of this tune is the sub-bass…it took me a couple of listens before I really caught it. This […]
So, I’ve got a confession to make, y’all. I may or may not have just spent the last hour gettin’ sweaty dancing/cleaning about the house to this mix. Ok… FINE! I actually got very little cleaning done & mostly just spent the last 60 minutes reliving my UKG glory days singing into various kitchen utensils […]
Fresh off Intergalactic Smugglers Volume 2, a brand-spankin’-new & free-to-download monthly series focused on spotlighting house music record label Shanghaied’s newcomers; Jerome Withers’ – Growvie, embraces all elements needed for a proper summertime banger in my book. From the catchy opening vocals & funk-tinged breaks to the African drums pulsing throughout, this deep house tune takes on a […]
I’m still kind of in shock that Marcus Intalex is gone, but a by-product of that is a chance to remember his work and life through his music. This was posted by the Sun & Bass Crew from Marcus’ live set with DRS from 2007. RIP Mr. Intalex.
