Butterz & Skilliam on Rinse.fm 2.23.10

Category: , , By brockolio

If you haven't been keeping up with Elijah & Skilliam on Rinse.fm recently, you've been severely missing out.  To all crew who have always loved Grime beats and wanted to be able to digest them without an MC from time to time, this show is most definitely for you.  With grime instrumentals now being released on big labels such as Terror Danjah & DOK on Hyperdub, Rude Kid on No Hats No Hoods, and Swindle's 'Airmiles' dropping on Planet Mu later this Spring, it's nice to see these producers getting the proper hype and attention they deserve.  Here's this week's show with new tunes from Royal T, Swindle, SRC, Terror Danjah & more.  Be on the lookout for the Fact Magazine mix dropping soon.

Clash & Burn

By brockolio

Last week, 4 generations of UK Bass crews came togther at the Roundhouse in London as part of the ongoing Red Bull Music Academy to clash sounds in a battle royale for the ages.  Hosted by the legendary Don Letts; Trojan, Soul II Soul, Digital Mystikz, and Metalheadz fought 4 solid rounds for UK Bass supremacy.  Given that we here at Bassfaced are located stateside we were locked to Laurent Fintoni aka kPer's twitter and Zinc's iphone Ustream session to get any insight or brief glimpse as to what was going down live at the Clash.  Now that a week has passed, many have had a chance to weigh in on what went down and whether or not they believe Goldie's Metalheadz crew (albeit with a few ringers on the night) deserved the victory handed to them by Don Letts.

Check out Laurent's review of the night HERE and read the official write-up on the night HERE.

Lucky for all of us not in attendance on this historic night, the good people over at RBMA have put up the recordings from the night on RBMARadio and we'll leave it up to you to decide who was the true Champion Sound.

Be sure to check out more of Ashes' photos from the night HERE.  Some really sick shots as always.

NYC crew don't fret.  We got Two Sounds Clash coming up Friday night featuring two rooms of sound.  Reggae & Dancehall vs. Jungle & Dubstep featuring some of the finest talents the city has got to offer including LionDub pulling double duty in both rooms!  Keep it close to the site for some info on upcoming releases and tunes courtesy of the LionDub International label who are pulling out all the stops in 2010.  If you were at Two Sounds Clash pt. I, you saw Benny Page murder Southpaw alongside Liondub & Jahdan, H?man, DaveQ, Geko Jones and know exactly where to be this Friday.  Ya been told!!!  See you at the dance!

This one goes out to the LDN massive, apologies for the short notice.

As fans/readers of Pelski's blog it is our pleasure to help get the word out about his FREE clubnight at the Big Chill House. If you have yet to cross paths with Pelski's blog do yourself a solid and please do. It's consistently on point tipping readers off to the latest sounds in this broad style of music, backed with excellent descriptions. One thing is for sure the Pelski Highly Recommends do come Highly Recommended. In its kick off heres what they got in store for you.

From Pelski:

Big Chill House and Pelski presents...
You Can Call Me Pelski: FREE before 12
Big Chill House, 257-259 Pentonville Road, London

Friday 19th February sees the beginning of the long-awaited FREE You Can Call Me Pelski clubnight. Be sure to join the Facebook Event.

We've put together a formidable line-up for our first event at The Big Chill House – with two of the biggest names ripping up the UK bass rulebook. Like a couple of tenacious terriers barking at the heels of the old vanguard, our headliners – Rustie and Roska – have boldly pushed the UK bass scene forward into unheard territory, shaping the urban dubstep-dominated soundscape of 2010. Read more here.

If you're looking to catch The Boog-A-Loo Crew - and these talented DJs/producers aren't to be missed, Drop The Lime'll testify to that, having just signed them to his mighty Trouble & Bass imprint - make sure you get to the Big Chill House at 10pm to see their two hour set, something a little different from the techno and house Darkly will be spinning between 8 and 10pm.

The Boog-A-Loo Crew Pelski Promo mix sees the Crew on a UK Funky and 2-step tip (expect to hear similar things in Roska's set), with a couple of classics from the likes of Geeneus and Bassjackers thrown in as well as some new, unseen material (Pariah's unreleased 'And Thoughts of You Still Cross My Mind' and Fantastic Mr Fox's 'Brady'). If for nothing else, the mix is worth it for a sneek peek at the Boog-A-Loo Crew's new alias Dark Sky: the mix ends with their superb remix of The XX, a beautiful garage-tinged track that's strangely reminiscent of the warm percussive beats of Darkstar's 2009 smash, but with the ever-comforting presence of the XX's soothing vocal work. Here's to hoping the Crew drop it on Friday...

NYC, don't miss out on the Boog-A-Loo Crew playing alongside Tomb Crew and the Trouble & Bass DJs at Webster Hall April 14th.  Mark those calendars, sure to be an epic night!!
