Long before I discovered the rave, I was into heavy metal and industrial music. My early influences ran the gamut from Pantera to Slayer to Ministry to KMFDM and everything in between. Listening to those bands is a primary reason drum&bass drew me in…it was dark, heavy, loud and in my opinion it might be […]
When I heard this tune I had trouble remembering what decade I was in. I could have sworn I was back in my bedroom in 1993 listening to freshly imported tunes. Oddly enough, this was released yesterday. Even more odd, it’s really good.
In 2003, Covert Operations hosted the Bad Human tour at Trees in Dallas. Bad Company & Dieselboy rocked it, back-to-back, for over three plus hours to a seriously packed house. It got so hot that it actually rained inside for a few moments. We pulled the recording out of the Covert Ops vault for a […]
A 7 track mixtape of hip-hop and soul classics by Shalonda. This is worthy of the hoops you’ve got to jump through for the downloads. Hey Shalonda – Just Go…A Mixtape

I came across his mix series while browsing DOA‘s mix forums and was astounded at the amount of music he’s put […]
I missed this a few months ago while cruising the Metalheadz forums. This mix dates back to 1995 when cassette tapes were still the preferred medium for distributing a mix. It’s pure “intelligent” (or to use the more PC term, atmospheric) drum&bass. Bailey – Intelligence Studio Mix (1995) Filetype: zip/mp3 Time: Side A 46min / […]
Given my propensity to be really into beat-driven music, it should come as no surprise that I prefer instrumental hip-hop to the lyrical variety. Not that there’s anything wrong with vocal hip-hop, but I often feel like the beats are lost in translation. Here’s a double shot of instrumental hip-hop that’s perfect for anytime of […]
What do you get when you combine dancehall vocals with UK funky house (aka 4/4 UK Garage)? Gabriel Heatwave’s Funky Bashment mix. This mix was originally featured on XLR8R’s Podcast in late September. If you dig this type of vibe you can get more from Heatwave’s website/blog. The Heatwave – Funky Bashment Mix (right click, […]
