We just had a mix and interview from Kelpe
Very good it is too, big ups Wendy.
LHF are awsome, this is one of my favourites of the year easily. Their radio show on Sub FM is insane too, check out United Vibes it's too good: http://www.dubstepforum.com/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=237898
These two are amazing too: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZgOyxj2i2l4 / http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9UTOX30kCmk
Wicked as always Wendy.
Jacques Greene, Harmonic 313/Mark Pritchard, Lone, Pearson Sound, Thriller/Lukid/Actress, Illum Sphere, Shed, Blawan, Objekt & Sbjekt have some amazing stuff out there, a lot of it miles ahead of these remixes too.
That EP is a delight.
Glad you enjoyed it.
that was my plan all along, think about his bangers all the time.
Have you checked out Ben Westbeech's bangers?
He made that under the name Breach and its been an anthem in a load of clubs ever since.
I've not heard the record yet, I'll come back later...
even if the fucks can write (which they can), they aint gonna lure anyone in with lists like that.
He's always had a load of cool stuff but this one is a right banger.
I like to see Hildur Gudnadottir next to DJ Nate its a good combo. You need one after the other thats for sure. I need to get on the new Shed album but I already love the new Non Plus+ and Hemlock, they both went in diffrently with those two.
For a second I thought you had a mix from Zero B of ye olde rave fame: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RkfwoAr-zPI I got a bit excited. I'm well up for Zero dB as well though sounds good.
can't argue with those suggestions down the bottom: http://sonicrouter.blogspot.com/ is indeed alright.
Digging through the filth on http://www.dubstepforum.com/ can still be rewarding too
HPLL is such a big label. Massive freak of a label with so much to love! The amount of time's I've rinsed the 10-20 album and EPs is getting rediculess. The latest Rooflight release is something else. really flows from ambiant freakout to garage banger so well. TVO is a legend anything from his techno bobbins to ambient soundscapes are a real treat and thats onlt the tip of the ice burg. Love playing Tigrics too I've not heard field recordings so large as when he drops that sample of a stone grinding round and round and round... on Synki.
Big up Thorston! Big up Highpoint Lowlife.
Nice one Simon, looking forward to listening to it.
Always love reading Mala interviews
quality selection of music you've chatted about to, its easy to get lost in it all and forget how much amazing stuff is finding ist way out untill you write loads of it down in a big row haha
Interesting as always
Skull Disco is indeed awsome.
Everyone should check out Appleblim's new label Apple Pips its brilliant in other ways and anything Shackleton does since Skull Disco died cos its all gold.
large tracklist, the tunes are as deep as the knowledge. Its a hard task doing a sort of history of dubstep mix, I don't think I would even attempt it haha. So well done man.
That bassline on the second drop of Stone Cold <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3
with the stranger end of the dubstep related scene that I can't shout against it every time.
I've just seen some really strange music go down really well at clubs, it kinda makes that IDM frame of thinking redundant. We aint in that post 90s era any more where IDM rules. Dance music can both be danceable and strange. So many people hear something at home and don't even think about it working in a club. If its not stright up and blatant dance, with bait drops all over the place a lot of people can't see it potential and casualy droip the IDM bomb.
I'm not saying the reviewer here did it in any demeaning way, they just thought Mount Kimbie sounded interesting and electronic so dropped the IDM reference. Its far to easy to do... I just hope one day peeps will drop that habbit, cos things change. Its more complicated than that shit refference...
Plus its less true with Mounht Kimbie, these guys are less dance and always have been. They've always been realy starange and not fussed about the dance floor. Some of their stuff still resonates in the clubs, but they're obviously on another tip... IDM is still a stupid term, whenever its used mind. Inteligent Dance Music... fuck me... its a pretentious phrase made for people to look down on so much stuff. I've argued against IDM tag with James Blake recently cos pretty much all his stuff so far has killed it in clubs, I've seen it happen. But Mount Kimbie are a diffrent beast. They're doing all sorts here, IDM is a stupid term but I know what the reviewer means when they say it mentioning this lot next to 'IDM' peeps like Boards Of Canada and AFX...
Can't get enough of these guys. I knew they had a brilliant album in them after hearing their first 12", I think I even said so on dubstepforum at the time it was released and they proved me right. They've got loads more in them too no doubt.
I love that they're so hard to pin down, they never where dubstep as such its just the dubstep scene embrased them so fast. So much music comes from the scene right now that it isn't really a genre any more its just a scene where loads of music from all over the place comes together.
Good interview. Looking forward to this new album and whatever they get up to next. They're those kind of artists that could go in any direction really its pretty cool.
grabbing the cd and 12" today, its so good to finaly have these tracks. I can see this fightinhg for top spot with Ikonika and FLying Lotus in an imaginery battle.
Seems like a while since the last column so I really enjoyed this cheers. I need to grab that Actress album he's got such a brilliant sound. And that Kowton releases is pretty addictive for something so low down and gloopy. Its got me desperatly diggin thru my collection finding other 110bpm or whatever stuff to mix with it so I can play it even more. James Blake goes without saying haha
Are pretty cool, the Get Darker TV mixes are cool: http://www.getdarker.com/tv/ Its like a live set/online radio show/TV hybrid. They get some big names in the studio. Ikonika and Oneman was a recent highlight but they come at it from all angles from the more formulatic stuff I'm not really keen on to the rest. This comp might be a nice enough gateway for some peeps, just like the up and coming Minestry of Sound comp. I think the nearest a mix has got to showcasing it ALL is the most recent Dubstep Allstars mix and thats two CDs, Chef plays more traditional stuff while Ramadanman twists it up more on the next disc, its quality but large chunks are still missed. The genre is too big to be contained on a comp. Good review, you might have got people digging deeper even before they reach for this comp haha.
I was there, it'll be brilliant to re-live it.
Everyone should listen to Nero and the Blue Daisy remix too... then everything else, Virtual Boy and Better Prinker are percys.
well thats a start.
you could be the next D Double E... D Double Wend-E!
Looking forward to some new No Age.
They remind me of The Dragon Rapide and all those mad Leeds bands that I always end up catching at the Brudenell. Suprised I've not seen this lot there acctualy, maybe I have hmm...
I've already pre-ordered this from bleep, I hardly ever pre-order albums thats how excited I am.
I was just playing another of his Landforms EP's this morning, looking forward to getting this mix on the go.
James Blake is just too good, I saw him DJ the other week and it was such a brilliant vibe. It's like he's managed to make R&B into a really twisted funk infused dance music.
I'm loving the post-hyph Joy Orbison a lot, the subtler stuff is just brilliant and I find myself coming back to it lots more. Mngo's still a beast though, esspecialy when you drop it out of knowhere when least expected.
P.S. Kuedo is a badass.
xxxy is from manc too, I nearly forgot about that and I only interviewed him the other month: http://sonicrouter.blogspot.com/2009/12/interview-xxxy-mindset.html
He makes amazing off centre instrumental hip-hop and runs some quality nights called Hoya Hoya: http://hoya-hoya.blogspot.com/ who have brought soem serrious tallent through your city, peeps like: Dabrye, Daedelus, Mark Pritchard, Toddla T, Dam-Funk, Ikonika, Rustie, Danny Breaks, Kissey Asplund, Benji B, The Gaslamp Killer, Flying Lotus, Martyn...
Pitty we beat you to it with a mix and interview the other month ;)
Really looking forward to hearing this one mind.
I really like Grievous Angel's redux, he's playing at the DMZ Vs. Exodus 4th birthday in Leeds on the weekend alongside: Kode9, Mala, Coki, Loefah, Scuba, Silkie & Quest, VIVEK, EL-B, Heatwave. I'm excited already!
It means go crazy/wild, have a bit of a dance or near enough haha.
She's done some killer tracks recently, check her out with Geeneus on Get Low: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9-g-QimJKlc and with Sticky on Bad Gyal: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kPZ8uuh3JSI She's ace when she does the slightly rowdy dance tracks. Boooooooooooooo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hnauS1rnDiI
its going on two years old now and always gets people thinking... I mean someone transcribed it: http://rougesfoam.blogspot.com/2009/06/loving-wonky.html
can't wait to grab a copy.
I'm really feeling Moska at the moment that Night Slugs EP looks mad, that epic track Nike is something else. All the artists here are doing good things at the moment.
Wiley vocaled the same track a while ago its loads better (still rubbish though), I doubt it'll come out now this has though.
Thats all you need from that Jammer single, but he cracks me up.
