Filthy Digital - Testimonial LP (Tribute to Mike Honcho)

Out this week on Denver, CO based Filthy Digital is this Testimonial LP featuring intense dubstep cuts from ten producers.  This LP is quite special because as the name implies all the proceeds of the release go to benefit the family of former label exec Mike Honcho who recently passed.  While I never knew Mike by all accounts his presence was central to dubstep in the US and especially Colorado.

To promote this release and the label in general the new heads Dub-A-Tak and Chefugee have started a twitter promotion.  If you retweet the message “Filthy_digital presents:Testimonial LP –OUT NOW” (click here to retweet) then you’re entered in a contest to win a free copy of the LP.  It ends this Saturday so get on it!

Big tunes on this one from Rumblejunkie, Caustik, Richie August and many more.  Lovers of the filthy side of dubstep (hence the labelname) from people like Borgore, 16 bit, DZ, Chasing Shadows, and related should get after this asap.

The Dubstep LA Mixtape mixed by Plastician

I’ve been waiting on this one for some time, promotion has been going around between people like Adidas and Virgin Airlines.  Should be major and expose tons of people to the sound of dubstep.  The release of this fusion of hiphop and dubstep is sure to excite and frustrate depending on your musical persuasion, but isn’t that what music is all about?  There’s definitely a strong reaction to this already with over 1,000 followers on the Dubstep LA twitter.  Now I’m wondering if there’s some tour in the workings….  Download the mixtape on GetDarker & spread the word!

Can’t forget the Dub Rap mixtape featuring Bay Area microphone stylings and other people that have been on this combination tip for time.  I love that Chae Hawk & Rx made it onto the final tape with “Malt Liquor” and Plastician’s selections are generally excellent (as expected).  I do wish that he’d gone with his own remix of “Snoop Dogg Millionaire” as that’s far better in my opinion, but I’m too played out on Eastern Jam to comment.

Big respect to all involved in this from the promoters to the MCs to the original producers.  I hope this combination continues and more people fuse these two genres to create a new flavor of dubstep (dare I say hopstep or some other nonsense genre name?)

Comment on what you’re thinking!  I’ll do the same once I give it a proper listen.  I should also add that you can download the Xzibit and Murs tunes for free.

Violet Gray and Dub A-Tak - Danger Dub Duo Vol 1

This is a filthy hour of music from Los Angeles residents Violet Gray and DJ A-Tak.  Definitely for the dark inclined.  Mixing and selection are excellent - respect Violet Gray and A-Tak.  Tak was very humble about this mix but it really is quality.

Kelly Dean - February ‘09 Mix

Kelly Dean

Really nice and diverse mix from Kelly Dean out of Costa Mesa (LA), Ca. Tends to err on the garagy side of things, in and out of wobbly, nasty tunes.  Definitely feeling the African Herb refix and many more tunes.  Big mix.
