Excision- Canada [dubstep]

Living Room Stage -- Friday, August 8th 3:30pm-5:00pm
The Village -- Sunday, August 10th 8:30pm-10:00pm

Excision- Dark Side of Dubstep mix

At the young age of 21, Excision has already established himself as one of the rising stars in the world of Dubstep. Upon starting his own label Rottun Recordings, his plans to bring the dark side of Dubstep to the dancefloor have been successful as is evident by the sell out and re-pressing of each release.

When coming across Dubstep in 2004, before it had become an international phenomenon, Excision was hooked on the raw sounds
he heard booming out of the speakers.
While 2006 saw one of his mixes accumulate over 20,000 downloads,
2008 and beyond is already seeing his sound storm onto the Dubstep scene.

Since Excision's track "No Escape" ( featured on Rottun 001 ) was released, he has seen the demand for his services in Dubstep and beyond. Listen for upcoming tunes on labels such as Cyberfunk, Aufect, Shift, Junta Dub, Sub-Urban Trash, Westbay Group, and more on Rottun Recordings.

Skream- Croydon, UK [dubstep]

The Village -- Sunday, August 10th 11:00am-1:30am

Skream Stella Sessions-- July 23rd, 2008

Meet Skream: Croydon's musical wonderkid. At 15 he discovered making music. Five years later he's changed the course of UK urban music, having helped build the foundations of London's most exciting new musical style, dubstep. But he's barely started yet: because right now, Skream is an artist on fire.
Skream's story begins in Croydon, in secondary school year 11. He wasn't getting on with teachers and they weren't getting on with him: but he was getting on with his music. But two friendships cemented then would start him onto the path to musical success.

First he met Benga, another talented Croydon kid who was starting to make music. Then he met Hatcha, soon to be one of the most influential and pioneering DJs in urban music. Around 2000 Benga and Skream set about building on the early dark garage flavours that were to be found on the pirate airwaves around Croydon. Through Hatcha's sets at club Forward» and releases on the seminal Big Apple label, they were about to create a new phase of dubstep.

At first Skream specialised in one flavour of dubstep: dark. His clipped, techy minimal style became a trademark sound. Long before grime existed, it reflected dark murky streets and sinister nights, the sound of decaying London and its frustrated communities, stuck out in satellite towns and sink estates with nothing but a PC and freely available software to channel their frustration into. Stuck in front of a PC for days on end, that's exactly what Skream did.

Then two years ago Digital Mystikz burst onto the dubstep scene, expanding the sound with new flavours and vivid colours. Skream became even more inspired. It not like he wasn't prolific already - rumour has it he's made over 1500 tracks - but out poured a host of bright new tracks from the wonderkid. "Indian remix" took him into trippy Asian territories, "Cheeky..." into Arabia, his unreleased mixes of Sunship fused Jamaican dancehall smut with hooky Kraftwerk melodies. "Smiling Face" broke out cheerful reggae skanks on dancefloors.

But his biggest tune was yet to come. Enter "Midnight Request Line" - on Tempa records - an anthemic explosion of electro arpeggios and dub sub-bass. It's a tune you can sing along to: Skream has it as his own ringtone. When it got dropped by DJ Youngsta at club Forward» grime dons Wiley, Jammer and the rest of Roll Deep began to shock out, flashing their lighters out of hard earned respect. The flip of this mighty release is bassline boomer "I," an excursion into deep dub basslines and shifting cinematic textures.

It shouldn't come as any surprise he likes sub-bass, Skream has grown up around it. His older brother was a member of Croydon's notorious jungle hell-raising raving outfit Intanatty Crew, which featured Radio 1's Grooverider and Bailey's 1Xtra as members. Ollie, Skream's real name, is no stranger to a bit of hell raising himself, famous for his up-for-it behaviour at parties or out on the town. In fact he's the only known music artist with a subdued alter-ego. Most rock stars are quiet by day with flamboyant alter-egos. Our wonderkid is the other way around. But then that's wonderkids like Skream for you: unique.

BLVD w/ MC Souleye- USA [live electronic band]

Living Room Stage -- Saturday, August 9th 1:00am-2:30am

Fusing live instruments with electronic production techniques, BLVD
combines elements of hip-hop, house and breakbeat to create a refined
and progressive musical experience for its audience. Drummer Dylan
McIntosh and bassist Tripp Bains lock into deep, subwoofing grooves
while electric guitarist Curtis Sloane adds tight, rhythm based,
melodic progressions and heavily effected looping patterns. BLVD
improvises just enough to lead audiences through unexpected segues and
hands-in-the-air crescendos. As a trio, they rely heavily on their
skills in the studio. By creating samples and synth lines they combine
an organic live sound with the repetition and structure of electronic

BLVD's eponymous, self-released debut live album (2004) was recorded
almost entirely live at the Bay Area's prestigious Ex'pression Center.
The trio followed this with their second independent release Before We
See the Sun (2006), produced by duo Chocolate O'Brian (No Doubt,
Flipsyde) and featuring various guest vocalists. BLVD recently finished
their third, all instrumental album, Digital Disorder, released
December 10, 2007 on San Francisco's Cyberset Records. The band is also
featured on Souleye's forthcoming solo album Balance in Babylon,
co-produced by BLVD drummer Dylan McIntosh and due for release in
summer 2008.

Drop The Lime -- NYC, NY [bass]

Fractal Forest -- Monday, August 10th 3:30am-5:00am

Drop The Lime Exclusive XLR8R mix

Set the standard; then raise the bar. Or in New York City’s Luca Venezia’s case – totally destroy that bar on a global scale. The 25-year-old known as Drop The Lime (and Curses!) is the iconoclastic club fiend of the 21st Century. Producer, remixer and DJ, he started out at 17 and has since dropped approx 150 underground classics, each year breaking boundaries of the musical zeitgeist – relentlessly developing concepts and sounds that leaves his many imitators wiping away tears with a white flag. Lauded by critics (XLR8R/Dazed & Confused), premier blogs (Discobelle, Trash Menagerie, Fluo Kids), peers (UK production God Switch named Luca in his top artists of 2007) and the world’s cutting edge record labels (releases on Mad Decent, Counterfeet, Shockout, Ambush, Institubes and Fools Gold), he is the undisputed, celebrated NYC Bass Heavy Champion. Drop The Lime’s acclaimed solo albums – 2005’s “This Means Forever” and 2007’s “We Never Sleep” on Tigerbeat6 saw him murdering bass and bytes – an evolved style, re-appropriating breakcore, bassline house, rave, jungle and dubstep, unforgettably touched with Luca’s own original vocals. Recent remixes for Moby, Robyn, Blaqstarr, Health Disco, Midnight Juggernauts and Infants have fuelled the blaze. HEAT. Lest we forget Trouble & Bass. The movement-defining party, DJ crew and record label established by Luca in September 2006. In two years T&B has smashed the NYC club scene apart with such deafening impact, the rest of the world found the blasphemous bass impossible to ignore. From Brooklyn warehouses to Manhattan clubs, touring his party through London and Paris – with a summer spot at this year’s Coachella. It’s time to get hysterical.

Subvert- Calgary, AB [dubstep/glitch]

Living Room Stage -- Friday, August 8th 3:30pm-5:00pm
The Village -- Sunday, August 10th 10:00pm-11:00pm

Subvert hails from Calgary, Alberta and his winding path in music started in 1996. Proof of his dedication to ‘Bass’ is in his track record of creating the world’s loudest competition vehicles, designing pK’s 90,000 watt sound system and managing the Village Stage at Shambhala Music Festival.
He started DJing in 2000 and combined with his extensive work on sound systems and attention to precision sound, he was ultimately & naturally led down the path to creating his own music productions and once again the low frequencies consumed him. Subvert’s sound is a combination of throbbing, relentless basslines, melodic strings and haunting pianos singing through midtempo glitch / acid crunk and dubstep. His attention to detail and the ability to tune into ‘bass that works’ can be felt in all of his music productions, he is an expert in the subsonic, the crowd and the show.

Bonobo- London, UK [downtempo]

Labyrinth Stage -- Saturday, August 9th 4:00am-6:00am
The Rock Pit -- Saturday, August 9th 11:00pm-1:00am

Bonobo in the mix XFM 2005

It's all about the levels with Bonobo. Not in a techy, studio kinda way, but in the levels of involvement with his music. On the surface there are the organic, pastoral atmospheres, the catchy melodies, the elements that caught people from his first album. You can engage with a Bonobo tune in that way if you wish, and will be well rewarded for it. But it's the deeper, slightly hidden levels that you should investigate, for they bring the greatest prize. It's these elements that he explored on 'Dial M For Monkey', as a greater focus on live instruments, the intricacies of rhythm, the darker shades of the soul, and almost a sleight of hand, that meant that you could be in one mood one minute, and the next you would somewhere different.

Appleblim & 2562 features

Category: , , , , By brockolio

Appleblim: Dubstep is a feeling

Words / Richard Carnes for
Published / Fri, 18 Jul 2008

Richard Carnes catches up with Laurie ‘Appleblim’ Osborne in Bristol to talk about his roots, the impending death of Skull Disco, and what the future holds for him and his new label.

With their speaker-bothering basslines and rattling African percussion, the Skull Disco lads have made quite a name for themselves all over the globe. From their first release they’ve turned heads, with Appleblim’s heavy, metallic sound providing the perfect counterpoint for Shackleton’s more ethnic and polyrhythmic style.

Their popularity, especially in techno circles, has been helped greatly by none other than Ricardo Villalobos, who has championed their records and famously provided a remix of Shackleton’s ‘Blood On Our Hands’. “He did it for us for nothing’, Laurie informs us. “He just loved the music so much that he wanted to remix the record”. A weighty endorsement, indeed. But it’s not just Shackleton that's been getting his tracks remixed by techno heavyweights. Osborne’s ‘Vansan’ has been given the remix treatment by Chain Reaction legend Torsten Pröfrock (aka T++), and is due for release later in the year. Inquisitive ears can check it out on Appleblim’s April podcast for Rinse FM here.

Whilst Shackleton has stepped up a gear and started to play Ableton-aided live sets, Appleblim has kept his focus on DJing, showing his skills to full effect on last month’s Dubstep Allstars mix for the Tempa label. A total departure from the series’ previous instalments, Osborne finds time to showcase the deeper, more techno-influenced side of the genre, alongside proven dancefloor bombs such as the post-junglism of RSD’s ‘Pretty Bright Light’ and the menacing bass pressure of TRG’s ‘Decisions’. As last week’s RA podcast proves, the quality of the Tempa mix is definitely not a one-off.

2562: Dubstep in the area

Words / John Citizen for
Published / Mon, 21 Jul 2008

Dubstep may still be a local thing, but it's no longer local to just one place. RA's John Citizen catches up with Dutch producer 2562 to talk scenes, sounds and area codes.

Owner of perhaps the most nondescript moniker in dubstep, Dave Huismans created a stir when his debut for Pinch's Tectonic Recordings first surfaced. 'Channel Two' marked the point at which an emergent sound became increasingly identifiable, a locus point for the growing cluster of producers smearing the edges between the formerly distinct realms of techno and dubstep. Nowadays, it's a full-blown movement, as artists like Peverlist, Martyn, Appleblim and Pinch have been putting out numerous releases in this fertile area between the two genres.

With a trademark percussive style which offsets precision beat edits with generous swathes of melody, 2562's own fusion of techno, garage, broken beat and dub has rapidly found favour across a wide spectrum of listeners. Performing under the dual aliases of 2562 and A Made Up Sound, Huismans now finds himself booked to play at events as varied as the influences from which he draws his inspiration. That trend is one that should continue with the recent release of his full-length debut, Aerial.

DubWarNYC @ Camp Bisco VII

Category: , , , , , By brockolio

[out to Seckle on the pics and vids, your time bruv]

video tracklist:

mala - Shake out your demons
mala - bury the bwoy
distance - victim support
mala - drunken swagger (tease)
skream- wobble that gut
coki - spongebob

and so ends another Camp Bisco, a festival in Mariaville, NY known to showcase the ever blurring line between live performance, improvisation, and electronic music. This year, the Bassfaced crew had the pleasure of coming together with Meatcamp Productions who put on the festival and exposing the eclectic audience to the sounds of dubstep for the first time by bringing the DubWarNYC crew for their first Camp performance.

Playing to a full Dance tent of people at the start of their set on Saturday, Juakali kept the audience hyped with his unique blend of vocals, toastin' on the mic, and the all important screams of "DubWaaaaaaaaaaaR" echoing through the tent. Joe Nice and Dave Q threw down an impressive hour and a half b2b set that produced some of the most energy felt all day long, the crowd exploding after each and every drop. The audience fed off of that energy, and if you were there, you know you felt something really special in the air during their set. Delivering huge dubs from the likes of Mala, Distance, Coki, Rusko, Skream, and countless others, the DubWar fam delivered the set of the weekend and got the crowd as rowdy and rabid as I have ever seen at a Camp Bisco set.

out to the DubWarNYC crew, Meatcamp productions, Seckle, and everyone who came out to show their support.

rest assured, this is only the beginning.

Matty G- Take You Back

Argon Records presents
Matty G - Take You Back
The debut album, featuring Juakali, Luv Fyah, Ugene and Audio Angel.

It's a peaceful, foggy night in Santa Cruz. Waves are crashing on the beach and Matty G is up late, working on his latest beat. Some of the most celebrated and beloved dubstep music has emerged from Matty G's Beach Hill studio in Santa Cruz, California. The story continues with his first album, built from a lifetime of diverse musical influences.

Matty G grew up playing the baritone saxophone (where his love of bass was found), while listening to hip hop, reggae and soul. He moved to Santa Cruz in 1998, where friends introduced him to DJ culture through house music, and later drum and bass. Unsatisfied with the direction music was taking, and tired of searching for records he could identify with, Matty switched to production to get the sounds in his head onto vinyl.

His early music consisted of bass-heavy hip hop beats with reggae and soul vibes. These proto-dubstep tunes were the foundation for his modern dubstep classics - Bitter Love, 50,000 Watts and West Coast Rocks. Take You Back spans the full spectrum of Matty G's style, taking the listener on a journey through musical history with tunes influenced by funk, soul, hip hop, reggae and lover's rock. Vocal and production collaborations with respected artists Juakali, Audio Angel, Luv Fyah and Ugene complement the theme by allowing Matty the opportunity to work with his friends.

Free Disrupt 7" Digital Release

Category: , , , By brockolio

disrupt - The Brink Of Destruction / Bit Defender

"The Brink Of Destruction" twists John Frum's echo landscape towards a more
rough countryside: a raw beatbox drum pattern, a blasting bassline and a skank
right from the electronics gear junkyard are driving the big synth line onwards
to, well, the brink of definite destruction. Can machines govern man? Does that
mean total disintegration now? Precisely. The War Machines are loose.

With "Bit Defender" you'll be full on automatic in the hands of the computahs.
Travelling at light speed and on the peak of a big bass wave the journey goes
on with ever-building intensity towards a point where space is boundless.
Beware of that surprising turn the tune takes and the mind blasting final.
High-G-Suit recommened for safe listening.
