“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….”
It seems like the humans attention span is getting shorter. This argument could lead into a loooong discussion, but we will keep our main attention to the music. Nowadays you see less LP´s and more single outputs. Cyantific moved from Hospital Records to his own label and now to Viper Recordings. Last month he released a new version of his massive tune “Outatime”. Now he keeps on moving on with “Robotic”, a heavy tune with wild Rave feelings and a Dillinja esque Bassline.
You can preorder and listen to the track here on Beatport.
The new single by Mob Tactics is out now on Viper Recordings!
Last September they released “Get Dirty / Shark Tank” and the huge 4-track “Body Check EP”.
Now they smash the floors with “Get Dirty VIP” and “Welcome to your nightmare”.
“Welcome To Your Nightmare” is coming with a lot of synths layers, a techy bassline and vocals from Nuklear MC, but “Get Dirty VIP” is definitely my favorite.
Defrostatica is a bass music label from Leipzig. Many people in Germany say that Leipzig is the smaller, but more colorful Berlin. Upfront ideas and music – you have to check it.
The “Rogue Style 1 EP” contains four tracks and is an international homage to b-boy culture. My favorite is “Visual” by Kiat (from Singapore). It´s a brillant, minimal DnB track with metallic drums and hypnotizing vocals by Klose. Then it´s our famous Kabuki. When he was doing music the last years, it was more Footwork, influenced by underground Hip Hop. “South Bronx Subway Riddim” is what you get now – amazing! “Home Sick” by Mass Appeal is wired bass music with Jungle breaks and a lot of drilling stuff. Sinistarr featuring Detroit´s Filthiest are coming with a big intro. “Yo Speakerz” is a progressive mix of Hip Hop and Ghetto Tech.
There are no soundfiles up yet. Wait for it and in the meantime check the Defrostatica page.
Manchester again and again. Propa talents you have to know!
