NastyNasty - The Reef and Haterade with Slugabed Remix


NastyNasty - The ReefNastyNasty comes with some futuristic laser music with this new release on Frite Nite including a huge remix by Slugabed.  Slugabed and NastyNasty along with Kid Simple, Zeno, Starkey, and a select few others have been producing this new sound that I can only attempt to describe as synth hiphop, Starkey calls it Street Bass, and I’m completely taken by it.  This release has three flavors, the 142bpm dubstep-compatible “The Reef”, a hiphop tempo remix by Slugabed, and a dancehall/house tempo entry with “Haterade”.  Definitely no haterade consumption personally, I’m enamored with all three tunes.  In your ears, instant:

There’s a lot of this sound coming from Starkey and Dev79, like In Ya Face, the Try Humanity Remix, the Freeze Step remix, and BD1982’s Space Boots along with anything on Starkey & Dev79’s label Seclusiasis.  Love these all.  Check a full interview with them in XLR8R.

If you’re in the SF bay area make sure to catch NastyNasty this Friday with Joker & Nomad, gonna be a big one.  More to come on that soon…

 

Mixes for Monday: Kid Simple vs Slevin Dubs


Pair of fresh mixes for today from Seattle’s Kid Simple and St. Louis’s Slevin Dubs. Both are on the harder side of things but bring their own flavor to your ears. First up, Kid Simple:

Kid Simple - ‘09 Promo Mix

Kid Simple has been making innovative, dancefloor oriented productions for time now and to my knowledge this is his first distributed mix.  He’s lately been picked up by Double Drop recordings here in SF and has been included in a bunch of mixes that are floating around, notably Starkey’s FACT mix.  This one is riddled with his own productions, I hope it gets him some deserving notice.

Tracklist (44 mins):
Kid Simple - Fresh Like (Forthcoming Double Drop)
Kid Simple - Where You Left VIP (Forthcoming Double Drop)
Numan - Virgo (Unreleased)
Eskmo - Let Them Sing (Planet Mu)
Rx - Just Ya Nutz (Unreleased)

Surefire 008 with Jneiro Jarel, Low Limit and Djunya


Location: The Triple Crown (map & info)
Description: JNEIRO JAREL (DR WHO DAT? – PHILLY / LA)
For over a decade, Jneiro Jarel (aka Dr. Who Dat?) has provided listeners with an unbelievably eclectic mix of sounds ranging from hip hop to Brazilian funk to bass music. With more monikers than Kool Keith, his collaborations and producer credits are almost too many to mention. Highlights include works with Kujo Goodie (as Willie Isz), MF Doom, TV on the Radio and many more. JJ’s music has been cited by Flying Lotus as one of his major influences in developing the Brainfeeder sound. These days he can be seen smashing parties such as Stones Throw’s The Do Over and Low End Theory to rave reviews. Surefire Sound is pleased to be able to host such a prolific talent… or as the Dr. himself puts it, “Your favorite producer’s favorite producer’s favorite artist and producer!”

Halloween Treats from Darklord, DJ Solo, and El Diablo


Darklord Dubload ProjectGot a bunch of freebies for Halloween today coming from Darklord with a remix from DJ Solo of the Soul Assassins crew, and El Diablo in conjunction with MalLabel Music.  First up, the free tunes from DJ Solo and Darklord.  These are on the spooky, halloween tip and are just for free release today!  Enjoy them!  The Solo remix is especially nice with a strong reggae influence but both tunes are solid.  Samples inside from Friday the 13th.

Next we have a fresh EP from El Diablo out yesterday on MalLabel.  This one’s dark and feels heavily hiphop influenced in terms of the synth noises used, one track is at a hiphop tempo too.  Reminds me of older west coast G-funk style synths.  Gonna put some samples up here, but first there’s a free remix of HD4000’s recent hit ‘Jekal’.

DJ Solo - Crush.Kill.Destroy (dubstep turntablism!)


DJ Solo of the Soul Assassins crew (DJ Muggs, Cypress Hill, GZA, etc) down in LA comes with this uniquely styled mixtape in dubstep circles with transitions of cutting and scratching rather than blending.  It fits with the music though cause most of these tunes are intense club riddims that are all about the drop and he cuts straight into it.  Different style, give it a listen.  Hiphop heads will be familiar.  I think it’s damn hype.  Blending of mixing styles like this is exactly what happens when people that like different sorts of music get together and vibe over, well, the music.  Bigup to DJ Solo & the rest of the crew.

As Solo puts it “It’s not the newest, most exclusive tracks, just some hard, bangin beats that get me hype and ready to CRUSH.KILL.DESTROY!“  I gotta agree, strictly heat inside even if some of it is dated, but there are also some Solo blends that spice things up.  Excellent selections regardless of age, put this on in your car when you’re heading to the club. Quick mixing on this too with 30 tracks in 50 minutes. Did I mention hype?

Check the tracklist below and scope out the crew’s site.  Download the mix here.

DJ Solo also did a dubstep edition of his series 40’s and Blunts with 6blocc, Woes, and Darklord of La Dubstep Nostra.  Pretty sick show including live high-grade scratching with dubstep.  I think this is even more dope than the studio mix:

Elucid - Bear Trapz (free DL)


Out yesterday was the Dubstep LA mixtape, out today is a three-track release from Brooklyn’s Elucid.  He’s had some solid releases in the past and this one doesn’t disappoint, with intelligent flows over beats from N-type, Caspa, and SuhBurb.  Get on the free DL over at rockthedub, bigup Khal and Elucid on the continued jams.  People not feeling the commercial vibe of some tracks on the Dubstep LA hiphop dubstep combination should definitely scope this out.  Any MC bold enough to include his lyrics in the release commands my respect, too often people hide behind basslines that you can’t hear them over…..
