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.
Wow, what an uplifting jazz (real jazz, not jazz-step dnb) mix for a Monday morning. Marky is a master and this mix makes me think of a beautiful summer day outside at the park.
It’s been just a few days since we heard about the passing of one of drum & bass’ most respected producers, Marcus Intalex. It doesn’t seem real that another one of our musical heroes has passed on so soon. I have always felt a huge connection to his music because I appreciate that he went […]
Fellow SB family member, Adrian Scientia aka Katalyst aka The Black Bull, finally got around to encoding one of his earliest mixtapes (but wouldn’t post it himself, so I’m doing it). The overriding theme for the tape was the 1979 gang classic, The Warriors and it shows from the intro and throughout. Initially recorded on […]
Taken from SCAR’s new EP coming out on June 2nd. According to Headz, it will highlight some of their best work. Definitely looking forward to this one. Check the title track below.
Look I get it… you don’t have room in your heart for yet another masked dj. We all have our hangups. So while you look deep inside yourself and come to terms with those feelings, have a listen to this set by Germany’s Boris Brejcha. At least hang in there for a few minutes and […]
