Dubstepped Radio Episode 002


Dubstepped Radio

I’d like to start off this week with a new episode of dubstepped radio.  I’m really excited about this episode, it’s got five styles of dubstep from jazz saxophones to hiphop to wobbly tunes.  It’s a pleasure to discuss tunes in a genre as diverse as dubstep, always keeps you on your toes.  This episode clocks in at just over 74 minutes with 23 tracks.

There’s a bunch of free music associated with this episode: Juju - Young Girl, Mastodon Tricycle - Lead Chips EP, Kid Simple - Ruthless (promo for Seattle Selections), Dumbsteppaz - Southern Fried Dub, and Elucid - My Mayor is a Billionaire plus Laser Days.  Get after those, some serious tunes.

Next episode should be up early July.  Send promos to snfdubstepped on aim or snf@dubstepped.net and I’ll give ‘em a listen.  I’m also open to including guest mixes so if you’re a DJ/producer and want to add your own flavor to the program contact me.  Bigup all involved.

Two Fresh Releases with Live Instruments (Bakir & Dubsworth, Overcast Radio)


Live instrumentation provides a sound that’s really hard to capture using typical electronic production methods which is nice to hear in dubstep.  I’ve got a couple fresh releases here demonstrating this, Dubs Alive 003 with Bakir (trumpet) & Dubsworth (guitar) and Surface Tension 002 from Overcast Radio (guitar, rhodes), Michael Leonhart (trumpet) & Daniel Carter (sax).  The styles in these two are very diverse from aggy dancefloor beats to post-rock influenced dubstep to jazzy, spacy sounds.  Straight to the releases which are both available online, with a digital release of Overcast Radio slated for June 18.

Dubs Alive 003 - Bakir & Dubsworth

Dubs Alive 003

First up is the most recent Dubs Alive release with both the label and musicians coming from San Francisco.  Bakir & Dubsworth come with three styles on this one, each with various live instrumentation.

Bakir & Dubsworth - Gatekeepers

The first track on this release is “Gatekeepers,” an 8 minute long evolution of sound that really reminds me of work by Godspeed You Black Emperor or Mice Parade, except in a dubstep style.  Definitely a new flavor for me.

Dubsworth ft. Bakir - Dirty Suthin

Next up is a big wobbler with spacy guitar and ambient trumpet effects which come together to create a serious dancefloor tune.  I love how the wobble plays off the guitar in this one, nicely done.  Look for this one in the next Dubstepped Radio podcast coming soon.

Bakir ft. Dubsworth - Score

The guitar in this one sounds like it came from a late 70s blaxploitation film crossed with Rockers.  Nice the upbeat guitars crossed with the rugged ambient synth holding things together.

Surface Tension 002 - Overcast Radio ft Michael Leonhart and Daniel Carter

Surface Tension 002This next one is from Surface Tension Recordings based out of Indianapolis featuring the productions of Overcast Radio (Chris Jones) out of Brooklyn.  I can’t get enough of this music to be honest, and am not the only one.  It’s impossible to listen to this without feeling like you’re wandering down some moonlit street, maybe in the rain, on the hunt for clues.

Overcast Radio - Midnight Sun

The ambiance in this song is amazing, and the imagery it evokes is powerful.  One for the thinkers and the late night crew.  Put this on when you’re driving home after a night out, guaranteed to fit the mood.

Overcast Radio - Vendetta

My pick of the two is the b-side with gorgeous sax from Daniel Carter and a complex, rolling bassline.  There’s been lots of discussion recently about the sounds used to make basslines and this is a perfect example of excellent sound design when choosing bass notes, at least in my opinion.  The way this rolls out of my speakers is perfect and the sound it makes is positive and uplifting. If you get this one digitally get it in FLAC or you’ll be missing out.

Mellow Mixes for Sunday


A pair of mixes today from KidLogic from LA and J. Rogers of Blipswitch here in SF.  Both are on the deeper side of things and are perfect for chilling out on a Sunday.  Been rinsing them pretty heavily myself, just getting around to posting them up now.

KidLogic - Mix for Sundays

First up is KidLogic’s “Mix for Sundays” which is an adventure through styles from dubstep to funky and the wonderful ground in between.  Big tunes in the mix and the blending is excellent.  Check out his virb player for recent productions, highly recommended.  This mix is exclusive to dubstepped thanks to KL, respect.  Check out his shows on dubstep.fm if you’re enjoying this one, he’s usually on the Supernormous Sessions.
