MTT 181 / Block To Block

Tough loud electro and electro bass up around 135 BPM. Most of it from Florida. I might be working out some aggression here. Features tracks by Dynamix II, Code Rising, Ohverclock, Phonotronix, a few DJ Wreck (AKA Salim Rafiq AKA Gucci Bass) remixes, and more.

This show is available in aNONradio’s archives here: https://archives.anonradio.net/202008140600_cev.mp3.

Tracklist:

  1. Eggfooyoung / Lake Oceola 00:00
  2. AS1 / These Dirty Streets 01:20
  3. DJ Overdose / The Beat 03:56
  4. Exzakt / More Bounce To The Ounce 07:44
  5. Netzwerk Florida / Earth.Wind.Fire (Instrumental) 10:37
  6. Hydraulix / Hydrospace 13:34
  7. Code Rising / Retro Miami 17:32
  8. Drop Man / And The Beat Goes 21:07
  9. Otto Von Schirach / Bass Low (Gucci Bass Rmx) 23:59
  10. E.V.A.C. / Terra (Salim Rafiq’s Anti Terra-rist Remix) 26:51
  11. Brice Kelly / The Unseen 29:57
  12. Ohverclock / Rezonation (Beat Mix) 33:32
  13. Tricky D / Take It To The Max (Hydraulix Remix) 36:38
  14. Code Rising vs Phonotronix / Fathom 40:13
  15. T.E.S.T. / Heat Levels Critical 42:29
  16. Ghostlight / Signal Stream (Inhuman Designed Remix) 45:14
  17. Phonotronix / In-sub-or-di-nate 48:54
  18. Dynamix II / Pledge Your Allegiance To Electro Funk 53:00

Tracks 3, 5, and 18 (The BeatEarth.Wind.Fire, and Pledge Your Allegiance) are all from Exzakt‘s record label Monotone. Exzakt himself appears twice in this mix, with More Bounce To The Ounce and the previously mentioned Earth.Wind.Fire. I’m a big fan of Monotone, and am happy to see they’ve been active again in the last few years. (Brice Kelly has a new album on Monotone that seems pretty rad).

Discogs tells me that Salim Rafiq is half of Gucci Bass, the remixers of track 9 Bass Low by Otto Von Schirach. That forms a fun connection with the next song Terra (Salim Rafiq Mix) by E.V.A.C. – same remixer, 16 years apart. Both are good remixes, and seem to fit well together.

Ryan Phillips AKA Kounterakt appears three times in this mix, twice as a member of Code Rising and once as a member of Ohverclock. I had Mind, Body, and Soul from Electro Endeavours Vol. 2 queued up too, but didn’t get to it. Top tunes all.

Phonotronix also appears three times: track 14 Fathom with Code Rising, track 17 In-sub-or-di-nate, and track 16 Signal Stream as Ghostlight (with Cloak), although that last one is remixed by Inhuman Designed.

I feel like there’s a whole modern electrobass scene here, one that isn’t talked about much on the outlets and discussion forums I follow. I’ve got a bunch of this style from the 2000s period – Debonaire RecordsExcelerationFrajileMonotone. Then 2008-2015 gave us Bass Frequency ProductionsBlack Magic US, and CHP Recordings (that I’m aware of). I’m not sure what’s going on right now; I know Monotone and Frajile Recordings are active, but that’s it. I’m excited to see where the Florida electrobass sound goes this decade. I’m hoping for a return to a more minimal, spare, synth-y sound, more like the early 2000s.

And now I’ve talked too much. I love playing this stuff but it only ever feels appropriate in the summer months, August in particular. I had a track cued up to play after Pledge Your Allegiance but the timing didn’t quite work with the vocal outro, unfortunately. I’ll be back next week, same time and place, with something faster.

  19. Maggotron / The Bass That Ate Miami (Soundchasers & Hydraulix Remix) 53:09
  20. Danny D & DJ Wiz / Get On Up And Dance (Wicked Mix) 56:52

Most of these are tracks played before on this radio show, and tracks I’ve been playing for years in general. Longtime favorites of mine. These selections aren’t all strictly from Florida, so this is more of a mood, a bass attitude.

I do want to draw attention to one record, though, and that’s Miami Bass Classics 5 on Wicked Mix, where the special mixes of tracks 18 and 20 come from. It’s a remix service record that I picked up at Platinum Records some time in the early 2000s. As it says on the label: “DJ USE ONLY, NOT FOR PUBLIC DISPLAY OR COMMERCIAL USE”. The mixes all work to make the tracks sound much more west-coast to me, breaks and electro by way of California. (Even the Unknown DJ track sounds somehow even more west-coast). I like it; I like these versions more now than when I first bought the record.

I’ll be back next week with more bass and some of my favorite 2000s Florida electro records. Faster and tougher than the music in this hour. Will try to be less lethargic, and will also try to leave myself enough time to read the tracklist in full. The usual time and place, live on aNONradio Thursday night PDT (Friday morning UTC).
