NEUMOND PODCAST EPISODE 2
Let's start from some serious mind-boggling beatz served by Project Mooncircle in their Neumond (New Moon) podcast - Episode 2. Project Mooncircle is one of the best, most eclectic, versatile, open-minded labels out there, their podcasts are quality, as a rule! This episode gives you an insight of upcoming or latest releases and is crowned by interviews with Robot Koch, Dday One & Jinna Morocha. The show includes new exclusive tunes of fLako, Daisuke Tanabe, Ichiro_, Pavel Dovgal, Pixelord (Error Broadcast), Comfort Fit, Robot Robinson, Ital Tek, Graciela Maria, Killing Skills, Sense Of The Q4, Sotu The Traveller, Kan Sano, Glen Porter, DZA, John Robinson and the Finest Ego + Cosmopolyphonic compilation etc.
RAID SYSTEM (aka RIRS) FOR RHYTHM INCURSIONS - NOVEMBER 2010
XLII and Broken Haze aka Raid System with November's show for Rhythm Incursions. As usual - super eclectic selection of heavy-bass, funky & stomping beats covering very broad range of music from e.g. Siriusmo or Bomb Zombies through Lazer Sword, Sub Swara, Kraddy to Halp (Leek is a f...g monster of the tune!!!), Skrillex, Terror Danjah, Powel, Girl Unit and BD1982. I would definitely want to see them performing live and driving the the crowd mad. They know how to do it.
PRESSHA - SIMPLIFY MIX SESSIONS VOL. 4
Pressha from Seattle delivers a mix for Simplify Recordings which is full of smashing tunes by the hottest midtempo / glitch hop producers, incl. Samples, Marty Paryt, Mimosa, Knight Riderz, Mattb and tons of Love & Light tracks. For me, personally the absolute highlight of this mix (as well as Acid Crunk vol. 3 comp) is Dirty Money - by An-Ten-Nae f. Soom T. What a beautiful riddim!!!!! Pressha has a unique gift of mixing quite a hard stuff into super funky, ass-shaking ride skilfully balancing hard stomp vs. softer touch. IMHO his best mix up-to-date. Highly recommended for any fan of modern heavy bass music!!!
PSYMBIONIC - BWOMP BEATS MIXTAPE 002
More midtempo bonanza in a mix by Psymbionic, who apart from being a producer and DJ, co-runs a very successful blog. Bwom Beats crew writes about the 2nd installment in their mix series: "This is a juicy mixtape that is 1/3 purple crunk lovestep, 1/3 glitch hop, and 1/3 dubstep by our own Psymbionic. What starts off slow and sexy soon drops you into a heavy boomer of a mix that will make you swoon and/or grab your nuts. John has been honing his style and styling his sounds since coming onboard and has definitely dialed in a good one so far. The mix has a lot of primo stuff from a lot of upcoming producers, so check this one out." Agree 100%. Don't sleep on this mix peeps.
Look out for upcoming remixes by Psymbionic for Ben Samples (Daly City Records) and Mindelixer (Abstract Logic Recordings). Tour dates can be found at http://psymbionicmusic.com/
Samples live at the DBS 3 Year by bensamples
Glitch hop / dubstep gonzo - Ben Samples in a special live set at the 3 Year Anniversary of Denver Bass Squad. You know what's the score :) Liquid, heavy, distorted bass, tons of sick synths, and serious head-nodding bizniz! A MUST! The mix was exclusively featured on a new blog covering similar music niche as yours truly's blog. Go check Sub-synthesis to mine for some midtempo, lazer, crunky goodies.
Glitch-Hop.pl Podcast #02 by Niño by Mash Machine
Beats, beats and more mutant beats in a second podcast for glitch-hop.pl site by Nino, hailing from Barcelona, Spain. Shlohmo, Swede:Art, Robot Koch, Mweslee, HudMo or sick remix by Slugabed of Melkeveien vs. Niño's tune Yo!. What else can you wish from a good mix :) Highly recommended by Doktor Krank.
Aural Frequencies - 2010 Digital Mixtape by Carly-D
And now something slightly different. Change of tempo and heavier slabs of sub-bass in straight-in-yer-face mix by the champion of dubstep sound, DJ and Producer, Miss Carly-D from Oakland, USofA.
This is a set that was recorded live at GruntWorthy Wednesdays on November 17th 2010. It's about 50% Dubstep, 40% West Coast Purple Future Bass, 10% Drumstep. 100% Sexy. Sit back, relax, & enjoy the aural frequencies. :) Features tracks by Carly-D, Dr.Knobz, Doug Surreal, DCarls, Stephan Jacobs, +Verb, Sugarpill, Samples, Subscape, Phear Phace, Kill Paris, Shredexx, Brent Still LIfe, Kito & Vaccine, Rob Sparx, Skism, Doctor P, Nit Grit, NastyNasty, Gangwarz, Obsidian, Ruckus & Roke, JMagic & Wickaman, Stylust Beats, ChrisB, Ceeker, Pendulum, Rob Swire, Bassnectar, Willy Whompa, & Alexandre.
LA MIXETTE 50 - SOULEANCE
La, la, la, la la funky la la la la. Soft, warm, melting soul electronica from Souelance, i.e. a combo of French producers Soulist and Fulgeance. Vintage sound from vintage mix series. Each and every La Mixette is booooming and unique. Apart from downloading this fresh mixtape, I highly recommend checking La Mixette back catalog on Musique Large. TIP!
BARTEL - LIVE MIX
I hope you managed to get to this point of my post, where I will present the last mix for today. BARTEL's music has been described as haunting, yet melodic; down-tempo, yet driving. Swelling ambient soundscapes meet with deep glitch cuts,while a dub sensibility keeps it all sounding like a distant memory. More to the the point, the Bartel aesthetic explores the intersection between ultra-modern synthesis, location recording, and experimental sound design; encouraging an approach to song writing which is both technical and cinematic. Bartel has presented their work in a live setting all over North America
Bartel did a promo mix to promote a forthcoming show with Babe Rainbow (WARP) and Vincent Parker from Canada. The mix features such artists as Fulgeance (in a great Hueas remix), Vincet Parker (great remix by homies from Australia - Blunt Instruments, Babe Rainbow, Acidwolf, Raime, and Bartel himself. Great synth-driven electronic trip, worth your time and ears.

Low Limit - Brainfeeder Mix
Please by +verb
Another heavy, glitchy bomb with sick sub-bass by +verb you can download for free!! He he listen to these synths. Again, +verb delivers bravely and right on target!
+verb - U Nome
Some time ago I 'poked' Bassnectar via my blog about him being very American-centric and that he totally neglects his fans in other parts of the world (I overexaggarated, as usual). A few months passed and he landed in Europe on a 7-gig tour :)) After something like 6 years since his latest visit here. Unfortunately, I was/will not able to make it to any of his performances, which sucks totally !!! I feel pretty shitty about this :(
At least, I was able to send my special 'party reporter' to Crawdaddy in Dublin. Montek, my younger brother who lives in the beautiful capital of Ireland is another well-known bass-lover in my family, upcoming producer and IT guru. I did not need to convince him at all that he should be there on Friday. Below is his report from an 'osom night with Bassnectar, including a few heaaaaaaaaaavy videos. Enjoy!
Welcome bass lovers & everybody who is ready to get some nasty bass bin!
We have Bassnectar's show at Dublin's Crawdaddy on the bill. Simply put, it was totally awesome! Night was really special, even legen... wait for it... dary! One of the reasons is that it actually happened here, just one of only 7 European gigs of his 2010 Euro Trip. Secondly, this took place in Crawdaddy which always, not knowing why, delivers proper vibe. It might be due to the fact that my first dubstep nights happened there with infamous mystik, digital UK brothers or maybe it is the way bass propagates in the premises, which by the way isn't the best sound system out there, still easily enough to shake yer troubles away & keep you warm inside.
When I got there around 12pm, half an hour before the scheduled set time, the queue was still long, thou event was worth waiting. While standing there and getting ready for the action, LCD Soundsystem crew passed me (didn't catch them with my conscious as they are so Irish looking, James Murphy, right? It was the next day, while checking what's up in the city, I've spotted them having show in the next-door's "Tripod"). Back to the story, at the end of the queue was a really nice surprise in a shape of my name on the list. Thanks Krank! More digits in the wallet for alcopops.
To be honest, I'm not a huge fan of Bassnectar's productions. Surely, he possess great technical skills, still I have a feeling he's afraid to get into it a bit, placing prolificness before experiment. As a result his tunes are solid, but a bit predictable. What I'm trying to say is he feels comfortable with one idea and builds every new production on it. That's really in opposition with UK scene, which is morphing, mutating, stripping genres and reorders them in a search of that mandatory uniqueness. The reason I'm bringing all that is the fear I had before his live set. Fear of monotony and missed experimental potential, which is a basic requirement in the field of electronic music perception.
None of my fears materialized! Bassnectar gave a solid, well thought-through, yet not static performance, perfectly balancing breaks, accumulations and repetitions, not too much not too less, that's the skills I was mentioning before. Sound scope was amazing as well, cowboy laser slashes, hip-hop dirty vocals, jah interludes, well-known sirens, dubby low, low basses and finally perfectly synced wobbles. Yes, Lorin, we're feeling it, as he might have asked a few times about it. Didn't you see that guy spilling his beer, in a very snazzy way, all over full dancefloor, with your first bass hit? That was really spectacular I must say. Trip was amazing, that's the type of producers and personalities, you'd like to follow. Dude was smiling, jumping, waving and finally pretending to be a wobble bass, so much appreciated for live musicians. One thing I'm not sure about is his setup. Was it only Ableton with two channels ported to mixer (which is by the way so simple yet effective solution) & sorted list of tunes or was it something more sophisticated (giving an option to pick up a tune with the crowd flow). I hope it was something more, what would explain his frequent headphone cueing.
The only downside of it all, was my increasing boredom, due to no quids, a possible road trip next day and kind of Lorin's transition back to the way he started. I figured nothing new is going to happen (was I right?), so I retreated and headed back to the lair. Night was complete, giving me at least a month of comfort over daily routines. Plus, man! It's a nice start to the weekend. Now, I'm chillin, which I wish you a lot.
Big Up Subz! Montek.

I am a big fan of Clubroot, Forensics and similar spacey bass wizards, and I've found the same vibes in beautiful, bass-deep sonic paintings on a very characteristics 2-step beat, conjured up by the soundmaster ptr1 hailing from Płock, Poland in his debut Above the Structures EP on the Polish label Concrete Cut Recordings. For me personally, this is one of the best Polish releases this year. Next to fantastic Homeworkz by Teielte, who btw did a very nice remix of ptr1's Cold on this EP. One more remix in the pack was done by the Shoju duo, representing Concret Cut label - kudos for great synths!
The release has already garnered early support from such international DJs as Rob Booth [ElectronicExplorations], Crises [Rinse FM/Mindstep], BunZer0 [Sub FM], Cixxx J, and Whistla [Sub FM/L2S].
Grab a free track from the release, though I highly recommend buying a whole thing - one track is simply NOT ENOUGH !
