DefinatelyMaybe- Bass to Crush your Face in a Dubwise Style! – by Taliesin

DefinatelyMaybe - Bass to Crush your Face in a Dubwise Style! – by Taliesin

I’m on holidays. This means lots of sun, beer, swimming and playing in the sand with my kids. Unfortunately this also means shitty wireless net connection so I am out of touch with blogosphere in a hundred-new-downloads-per-day sense. Fortunately I have so much stuff sitting on my hard drive that I can easily feed my blog beast.

Today, more lazers in a great mix by
Taliesin representing Dutty Artz crew. This is what I call a proper eclectic mix of bass-heavy music, going beyond the limits of one genre formula while simply focusing on the QUALITY in track selection. Taliesin has really cooked a delicious meal with some obvious anthems from Sukh Night, Raffertie or Joker (quite accidentally I love all these young guns!!), dancehall bomb of Lexie Lee in a fantastic remix by Paceface and Sticky, dubby killer by LionDub and Shadetek from Dutty Artz or twisted synth work by one of my favorite south american producers - Cardopusher. But the absolute killing lazer thang shizz is Montrealian’s Lunice lazer remix of Don’t Trip. F…g best acqua crunk / glitch hop refix I’ve heard in a while. A sure winner for all the lazer sword or megasoid fans out there (I’m one of them, a very devoted one!).

BTW. Lunice and Novatron will invade Europe soon, they are actually looking for dates in August. Thus, I appeal to any pimp promoters out there – book’em and let them kill European dancefloors with the best lazer show this side of Atlantic. (holler at Lunicefp2@gmail.com).

Finally some fresh news regarding forthcoming releases from the Dutty Artz family:
!K7/Gold Dust Will be releasing the Jahdan Blakkamoore full length in September... Jahdan is in fine form throughout singing and chatting over riddims from diverse producers including homegrown tunes by Shadetek and Rupture, ragga techno dons Modeselektor, grime super hero Jammer, the Zizek crew’s Chancha via Circuito and globe trotter Maga Bo. Dutty Artz extended family 77Klash appears twice on guest vocal duties and provides the gorgeous uncategorizable beat for ‘She Said’ while top grime boy Durrty Goodz goes in hard with JD on ‘Mesmerized’ and Abena Koomson joins in to bring us slowly down on closer ‘Rise Again’.

Nov 10th will see the Agriculture records put out "Solar Life Raft" a fucking incredible new project from Matt Shadetek and /Rupture- future visions from a submerged world...This ones gonna step the bar up considerably for anyone working with global bass sounds!
