Attention! Attention! We are very proud. This is the world premiere of “Whirlpool” by Bassface Sascha & DJ Phlex featuring Soultrain.
Out tomorrow on Liondub International´s compilation “Jungle To The World Volume 3″.
I was sitting in a apartment on Sardinia with Soultrain in 2015, with a view on the sea, as we were selecting tunes for his Sun and Bass live show. I grilled a fish as i heard him singing the “Whirlpool” lyrics on our terrace. From this time i knew this tune will be a hit!
In 2016 Sascha sent me a version and since then i play it every weekend. And trust me, the place is going mad every time!
This anthem is out tomorrow! It will be released on a LP, compiled by Liondub and Marcus Visionary.
You´ll find 19 tracks by artists like: Saxxon, Aries, Numa Crew, Bladerunner, Navigator, and many more.
My top picks are “Raver VIP” by Phantom Warrior & Soultrain, “Ganja Time” by DJ Hybrid & Brian Brainstorm and of course “Whirlpool”!
A tribute to a legend. Free download.
The Hitman was a big hit, released in 1994. The vocals never got old, the beats got some fresh ups in the last 23 years. The original producer of this track and Jungle legend Marvellous Cain will release a LP with a selection of 35! Remixes today on his own label Yardrock Records.
It´s not only the quantity that will shock everyone, there´s also a lot of quality brought to you by real big names from many scenes. You´ll find old remixes from people like DJ Hype (also released in 1994). You´ll find new subbass madness from T>I and Benny L. A heavy slammer by Toronto Is Broken and a wicked Jump Up remix by FatMan D, Klip & Outlaw & Nicky Blackmarket.
I tell you that nearly everybody should find his version, there is also a Garage Remix by Scott Garcia and a dancehall remake by Inna Culture.
I could throw much more big names in this post, but… just click play.
A new EP by Annix on Playaz. This is a must listen for everyone who loves Drum and Bass! The EP is massive – six tracks with wicked combinations. The title track “The Dog Knows” is produced by Annix & Prestige and “Cold Killer” by Annix & Turno.
There are also two bonus tracks in my promo pack, both without Annix… Konichi “Get It” and Decimal Bass & Vacuum “Invasion”.
What a monster Jump Up EP. Out since yesterday – grab it while it´s hot!
The Beat Assassins aka Jimmy Mofo and Joe Lenzie (from Sigma) started their journey in 2006 and split up in 2010. Last year Jimmy went back to his Drum and Bass roots and started producing and releasing Drum and Bass again on his own label Mofo.
His latest output is a big one (just released yesterday). “Wake Ya Whole Block” is beginning with a Major Lazer esque Intro. The tune is dropping with a strong bassline and wicked vocal pitching. Party slammer!
“The Breaks EP” is a compilation packed with five heavy tunes by DnB artists from every generation. “To celebrate our 21st anniversary I wanted to start a brand new chapter in releases,” states Drum & Bass Arena founder The Risky. And they celebrate it big time!
John B is starting with “Energy” – it´s the best track by John i heard in the last years. A lot of old school breaks and stabs are creating a atmosphere that i felt in the 90´s, but it has definitely the potential to work on modern days dancefloors. After years of waiting Shimon just released two tracks on his own label Audioporn. One of them is “Physio” ft. Darrison (release date 14.07.17). On this compilation there´s also a track by Shimon ft Darrison and it goes by the name of “Believe it”. Next is “Ice Cold” by A.M.C. and Turno. The combination is as wicked as the track – Boom! Then you get “Don Dada” by June Miller, James Marvel & MC Mota. This one is the most experimentell tune on this compilation, a huge intro will make the crow scream but the drop is so crazy that a lot of ravers will break their feeds by trying to dance to this. Last but not least is Bladerunner. “International” is a nice, smooth roller with warm subs.
The only audio link i found is here.
Release date 14.07.2017 – Watch out!
A great musician has passed away. He just cared about the music not about the spirit of the time. He was such a big influence for the complete Drum and Bass scene, pushing deep sounds with his amazing productions and his label Soul:R. Since 2011 he was also producing Techno on a high level by the name of Trevino.
The Dat:Music series were great, his Album “21″ is a milestone, i had some great moments on Sardinia with Marcus – R.I.P. – “radio… suckers never play me….”
