December to remember

Category: , , , , , , , , By brockolio

Braiden laying it down for Discobelle and their Mixin' It Up series.  Read what he had to say about the mix:

Aphex Twin – Windowlicker [Run Jeremy edit]
My friend said to me “so I was listening to Windowlicker the other day and just stopped and thought about what it was that I was listening to”. He had a point. Listen to those sounds. A unique and timeless piece by that weirdo Richard D James.

Deadboy – Ifuwantme
Big one by the man DEADBOY. Morbid name; life affirming melodies. One of the most Asked About tunes that I’ve played recently; usually via “oi wots that tune you play that sounds like that kode9 tune”. Yes he wears his influences on his sleeve here but they are good influences and it’s a great standout tune. 2010 your time db.

Japanese Telecom – Japanese Animation
Quick mix into this funk analog electro masterpiece by one half of Drexciya. I have an unwavering love for this kind of sound always have. Serato loop to set up a melodic blend into….

Little Jinder – Youth Blood [Bok Bok remix]
A brilliant piece of work by my man Bok Bok. Stand out track for me on his Night Slugs 2009 dubplate mix. Love the disco vibes and the vocodered vocals. Very good as a remix and a track in its own right. I could go on.

Mark Henning – Sick Note
Ok. Lets get movin. Here’s where we step up the pace a bit. British techno expat (guess where he moved to) Mark Henning delivers a pacey groove laden number which delights my ears and mind. Everything works together in rhythmic cohesion.

Greena – Actual Pain
Greena!!! Go buy this track now it just came out on Apple Pips records. Tight production, gives an almost staccato yet very fluid feel. Also goes well with the techno track before it to add some syncopation to the proceedings.

Alden Tyrell – Disco Lunar Module
A driving epic piece of electro by my Dutch mate Alden. He’s not my mate at all actually I’ve never met him. I don’t even know what he looks like. But his music resonates with me to such an extent that I think we could get on well enough to hold a conversation for as long as it takes to drink half a pint of Heineken.

Major Lazer – Pon De Floor
One of my favourite blends on this mix i think. An unlikely pairing but that swooping synth suddenly sounds so epic with ol’ Aldens bassline behind it. Brilliantly done track by itself anyhow, there’s a reason this track was so big this year.

Housemeister – Rambo

Housemeister what a joker. This track is a gem. Snares coming at you from all angles which gel with that stabbing bassline. I would say “funky on crack” if I said those sort of things but I don’t so I won’t and I didn’t. Had to edit it and add a bit of sub to it, the original is criminally subless, the tune’s crying out for it

Martin Kemp – No Charisma
Still lovin this track by Martin Kemp on the Blunted Robots label. Swooping rhythmic synths and percussion is particularly on point. Keep an eye on this guy in 2010!

L-Vis 1990 – Untitled
Lush is the word!! Big lush melodic beatless section breaks down into a tight groove with skillfully manipulated vocals. Beautiful piece by L-Vis. Sly ramping up of tempo here, tracks like this keep me playing 140bpm.

Pangaea – Sunset Yellow
Pangaea’s EP coming out on Hessle Audio has some amazing music on it quite simply. Synth work on this is great, a mutating and haunting piece. Takes the mix on a dark one to set up the listener for some of this (via a little teasing loop):

Dizzee – Stop Dat

Back when Dizzee was a true artist through and through. In his prime easily one of the best MCs grime ever saw. And the production! Raw and energetic, all about the bass stabs on this. And the cat sample. I think its a cat.

Crystal Fighters – I Love London [Brackles remix]
I love mixing vocals like this. Straight into this one by my good man Brackles, picks up the pace even further, immaculate stuff.

Ruff Sqwad – RSMD
I wasn’t even going to draw for another track but got an itchy finger at the last second and went for the double drop. Andy C was the first DJ I was influenced by and it shows sometimes. Solid track by one of my favourite crews to come out of scene

fabric presents Elevator Music: Vol. 1 from Fabric London on Vimeo.

Minimix by mlr // Art by Remote Location // Animation by Peter Dickinson

Gaining both critical acclaim for its catchiness as much for its atmosphere, the mutant strain of 140 bpm (or thereabouts) bass music currently infiltrating the global airwaves has morphed consistently over its recent life span; cross pollinating its acres of influences into the bundles of sub genres it now houses. It's become a strain of club music that revels in biting back against the perceptions of those outside of the core scene, those who consider dubstep to simply be a swelteringly tough warbling bassline that's complimented by a half step drum pattern and some airy atmospherics.

The warm fluid basslines of dark garage, the spacious precision of techno, the unabashed bolshiness of grime; the percussion led rhythm of funky house, the wanton bump of 2-step and the erratic fluorescent synthesized harmony of skweee are all constantly being harvested, peeled and juiced by a new wave of producers who are revelling in their mission to further the cocktail of sound that dubstep is currently thriving off.

Positioned as it is, in the midst of the UK capital, fabric has seen a torrent of vivacious ingenuity pass through its brickwork over its 10 year life, but of late, there has been an invasion (as much in the offices as on the club's dancefloors) of impeccably sculpted dubstep. The 'Elevator Music' project stands as an album in its own right, becoming more than just a collection of tracks. It's a collation of all the variant strains of dubstep; a completely original and exclusive collection of future bumps that reflects the embracive nature of fabric's dance floor music policy.

Pooling tracks from established producers like Martyn, Starkey, Untold and Caspa & Rusko with a smattering of producers destined for great things come 2010, Elevator Music ticks boxes in categories and niches that don't even fully exist yet; unifying the vision of 16 producers with one simple passion. Bass.

If you pre-order 'Elevator Music' on CD before 6pm on January 8th, you will automatically receive free entry to the launch party at FabricLive. Taking place on Friday, January 8th, 'Elevator Music' will take over Room 3 with Untold, Shortstuff, Hot City, xxxy, Mosca and Vista, whilst Rooms 1 & 2 will feature the likes of Todd Edwards, Hudson Mohawke (Live), Rustie (Live), 2562, Headhunter, dBridge, Instra:mental, Joy Orbison and more! 


UK/R.O.W. 15th FEBRUARY 2010

Despite the genre’s future-forward and experimental beginnings in the early 90s, drum & bass’ rigid uniformity over the last decade has made it a stifling environment for many producers. For dBridge, with his background as a former member of the drum & bass heavyweight champions Bad Company, the pressure of dancefloor expectations and DJs’ desire for club smashers has been experienced and rejected once in his career already. Since going solo, he has been busy developing a more cultured sound, carving himself a free form niche in a music scene from which he was feeling increasingly distanced from. Instra:mental meanwhile, having had a successful stint in drum & bass some years earlier, returned to D&B production in the mid noughties with a uniquely fresh approach. Inspired by 80s synth music, the Detroit sound and the Warp back catalogue, and with a studio fully loaded with vintage hardware equipment, they set about writing drum & bass unlike anyone else; a method that struck a chord with a like-minded soul in dBridge.

“There was no space in drum & bass, it was just running twenty breaks on top of each other, so we thought about what we could do, because what we were making was quite minimalistic in some ways; we decided to not fill the gaps. The way we work is great, because if you have got someone else working with you, you can all grab a synthesizer and just make some noise and have a little jam session.” - Instra:mental.

“Hanging out with Instra:mental began to influence me; they were thinking outside of the box, not just a little… a lot. I was still sampling whereas they weren’t, one session I made a sound on the JP-8000 and I started to get it, be re-inspired for my job… for music.” - dBridge.

After a year in which Instra:mental collaborated with dBridge on the epic ‘Blush Response,’ they decided to form a creative alliance as Autonomic. As a result a club night, a podcast, an umbrella for their labels, and, most crucially, a style was born. The Autonomic sound is music first, drum & bass second. The people behind it are not setting out to make a drum & bass track; they are setting out simply to make music, producing compositions that are emotionally charged, personally edifying and organic. This is a million miles from the music-by-numbers churned out by so many of today’s producers; this is lovingly crafted with integrity, with vision and without the limitations of genre or style that so many artists impose on themselves.  And with the likes of Jimmy Edgar, Kyle Hall and Zomby lined up to release on Instra:mental’s NonPlus+ label in 2010, it’s fair to say that the trio are only just getting started.

“Eventually we want to go to any gig and have complete musical freedom. This is exactly what we are doing: any music, any style, and any tempo, as long as we like the music. - Instra:mental.
After a year of server-crashing Autonomic podcasts – that have shown an overwhelming thirst around the world for drum & bass that does not conform to any institutionalised boundaries - dBridge & Instra:mental have mixed FABRICLIVE 50 (note: the 100th addition to our compilation series). With a tracklist that boasts some of dubstep's leading lights working at a drum & bass tempo, FABRICLIVE 50 is a dreamlike collection of beat explorations and electronic soundscapes all lovingly woven into 70
minutes; a treasure of a disc that reveals more enriching details with each listen. Beautifully imaginative and colourful, enter the world of Autonomic, as they return drum & bass to the bleeding edge of electronic music.

“We wanted the fabric CD to be like the best podcast we’ve ever done. That was our aim. When we were asked to do it, we approached all the people making music we love, and asked them to write us something special for the CD. Distance, Scuba, Genotype, myself and Instra:mental all did it. It’s a great collection of music, harmonically it all works together; and as much as we have different styles, you’d be surprised what tunes stick together just from being in key. We wanted to showcase what it is that we’re doing, and what the sound is capable of.” – dBridge

Lit Up! kingdom & todd edwards

full gallery from the night HERE

It's 11pm on a Saturday night and clusters of people are slowly starting to gather underneath the Manhattan Bridge outside of 88 East Broadway in NYC.  The anxious crowd isn't waiting for the infamous city-to-city Chinatown buses or here to sample the dim sum, they're here to get down at the monthly Flashing Lights party held inside the Chinatown mall at 88 Palace.

Flashing Lights is hosted by resident DJs Nick Catchdubs [Fool's Gold label co-founder], DJ Ayres [The Rub], and Jubilee [Nightshifters] in collaboration with MeanRed Productions; who take over the 2nd floor of the East Broadway Mall and transform the Chinese restaurant upstairs into one of the most untraditional and extremely random party locales in the city.

Walking into the space for the first time it's hard to not pick up on a wedding reception/Bar Mitzah party vibe (save for maybe the occasional decorative dragon or two) with large circular tables outlining the dance floor and disco tunes bumping over the P.A.  This feeling instantly fades away however with the sight of swirling green and red lazers and glowsticks being fervently waved around on the fully carpeted dancefloor.

The night started with Catchdubs, Jubilee, and DJ Ayres laying down a tag-team set to get the party warmed up.  A collaborative Disco set got the evening cracking, slowly cranking up the energy level with tunes like 'Blunt Edge' off of Zinc's recently released Crackhouse EP and throwbacks like the Robin S classic 'Show Me Love.'

Todd Edwards was next to hit the stage and threw down an inspiring hour+ set.  Todd's music contains a soulful element that you just can't teach or force, you either have it or you don't.  His productions have a soulful sex appeal and a timeless quality that resonate just as much now as they did over a decade ago and as they will continue to another ten years from now.  Relatively unknown in the US outside small pockets of the electronic music community, Todd was one of the premier contributors to the 90s Garage movement in the UK and is considered to be flat-out one of the pioneers of electronic dance music.  When you look at his tour schedule and see dates headlining Room1 at the Fabric nightclub in London, you feel lucky to get a chance to see him at these smaller and intimate nights.

From the moment he opened with his 'toddified' remix of 'Burning Down The House' you knew it was on.  Listening to his set consisting mainly of original productions, it's impossible to ignore the intricate sampling and editing found throughout his music.  Chopped and re-pitched vocals fusing together with underlying breakbeat 2step drum pattens; the flinty vocals interwoven into the tracks instead of simply layered on top of them.  Edwards dropped his Daft Punk remix staples 'Face To Face' and 'Technologic', as well as personal favorites from the night 'Never Far From You' and his 'Run It By Me' remix which all got the crowd moving.

Kingdom took the reigns next and kept the party going til the early AM dropping some tunes off the Fool's Gold and Trouble & Bass labels.  BokBok's bubbling, brain melting 'Citizen Dub' went off something fierce as well as the James Blake remix of Untold's 'Stop What You're Doing.'  NYC heads, you can catch Kingdom live again next Friday night, this time in his home borough of Brooklyn at Public Assembly.  Keep your eyes peeled on the Fool's Gold website for his debut release on the label, a serious banger called 'Mindreader' ft. Shyvonne on vocals with remixes from Bok Bok, L-Vis1990, and Todd Edwards.  Kingdom recorded a uStream session last week that you can relisten to here. 3 hours of straight fire, don't sleep on that!!!

Out to the Flashing Lights crew for putting together such a memorable and stellar night of music and to Oliver coming through yet again with some sick photos.

also, gotta big up Scion for the socks!  nothing like a fresh pair after a solid 5 hours straight on a dancefloor.

Trouble & Bassfaced

Category: By brockolio

NYC's Trouble and Bass crew always big in the game!!  Here's a quick rundown of what they've been up to of late...


The T&B label just released the Jinder 'Youth Blood Remixes' EP with heavy remixes from 12th Planet & Flinch, Sharkslayer, Bok Bok, Rico Tubbs, Squire of Gothos, and Chateau LeTouf.  12th Planet & Flinch's take brings some 140 dubstep business to the tune as well as wonky synthlines reminiscent of recent T&B headliner Joker.  Bok Bok's remix brings that tropical, funky, Night Slug flavor while Rico Tubbs injects his barrage of bassline to the tune.  Favorite of the remixes though comes from Squire of Gothos (Who will be playing at No Escape from NY in January) with a crackhouse style remix akin to the sounds Zinc has been pushing of late.  Preview and purchase the tracks over at Juno HERE.
