Most of the selections this hour come from four labels: Deep Medi Musik (tracks 6, 13, and 17), Punch Drunk (tracks 2 and 4), Sentry (tracks 10 and 11), and Tectonic (tracks 3, 14, and 15). Classic dubstep labels, with Sentry being the newcomers here. All four have their releases available on bandcamp, and are absolutely worth checking out.
There are two new releases I’d like to highlight today, the first being Danny Daze‘s Protocol 305 on Schematic, which just came out earlier this month. I’m playing Twisted at -6% in this mix, which drops it roughly a semitone, puts it right around 70 BPM, and makes it sound dope as hell. A little Miami flavor in an otherwise mostly UK set.
Luka Prinčič‘s Transport Layer Security EP is the second release I’d like to call attention to. Both the title track and the more dramatic Polyental incorporate polyrhythms and changes in tempo to a welcome and interesting effect. Reminds me a bit of ’90s Black Dog. Very good tunes, and available name-your-price over at Luka Prinčič’s bandcamp.
Last shout out is to Seattle’s DJ Struggle whose 2007 Struggle Dubs 5 mix is where I get the transition from Roll With The Punches to Channel One, and a large part of where my taste in dubstep comes from in general. (That and Monkeytek & Ryan Organ’s old club night Various).
And that’s another August bass month done. I’ll be back next week with something fast again, new and old electro at ~135, the usual.
