2020 was a dumpster fire, but these releases got me through it all.
Longtime a favorite at Shadowboxing, Sinewave is a producer and dj who has been around since the beginning of the Jungle scene entering the US and has long been a contributor in some shape or form. Here he has sent over a fantastic mix that encompasses a smooth roller vibe with some techy moments to […]
Since isolation started back in March, I’ve become quite the Twitch consumer and it’s, honestly, one of the best things about this time. I initially dismissed it as people watching other people play videogames, but since DJs and producers have co-opted the platform to share streams it’s now my daily go-to entertainment. Every week, like […]
DJ Trace, alongside Kid Drama & Survey, drops a killer EP on CNVX
You can add this new release from Wreckless, Honesty / The Morning, on Dispatch Recordings to the ever growing list of new music I’ve purchased in the last few months. From the moment Honesty drops it is an absolute soul wrecker; growling bass, big stabs, and a relentless drum. I think I’m in love. This […]
I have an expansive digital music library that was in absolute shambles thanks to iTunes metadata fuckery over the years. When the isolation period began in Texas I resolved that I’d use my free time to fix it file by file, folder by folder, and label by label so that it was accurate and correct. […]
Break and Kyo, the two minds behind Symmetry Recordings, were kind enough to answer some of my questions ahead of their latest release SYMM031 – The Edge Of Time / City Slickers (Workforce/Skeptical Remixes). As an aside…this might be a first in Symmetry Recordings’ discography; a release of just remixes. If that’s true, then there […]
Do you enjoy lush, cinematic soundscapes with a tinge of drum and bass? Do you like joyful, mind fucking ambiance that tickles the cerebrum? Do you like audio enlightenment? Well good news, Kimyan Law’s new album Yonda on Blu Mar Ten Music is for you. I find Kimyan’s music to be masterful, but it might […]
In Blu Mar Ten’s typically understated way, they announced a massive collaboration with BCee of Spearhead Records, entitled Grow, that also features DRS, Charlotte Haining, and Lucy Kitchen. I was so taken with the title track that I pre-ordered a vinyl copy before the clip was finished. Dun a thing with BCee, DRS, Charlotte Haining & […]
Another stormer from this year’s Sun & Bass festival. Doc Scott with DRS, Fox, and Visionobi was one of my favorite sets from that week with big, big choons and all three MC’s carrying the vibe. Reminiscing feels so good.
