Steppin into Yesterday with SNF 037 07.26.10 on Dubstep.FM


I was feeling a bit nostalgic last week after Mary Anne Hobbs announced that she’s stepping down from her Radio 1 show which is, and has been for a while, pretty much the apex of underground dance music education.  This got me in the mood for some classics so I decided to take a break from the bleeding edge of dance music and look backwards towards 2006/2007.  Some of my all time favorite tracks are in this mix, and strong representation from some of the best labels out there: Hyperdub, Tempa, Tectonic, DMZ, and Hotflush.  Step into the time machine…

Clouds, Cyrus, and Djunya at the Triple Crown


Title: Clouds, Cyrus, and Djunya at the Triple Crown
Location: The Triple Crown (map & info)
Description: The Surefire launch was most excellent, and now this is up next.  Clouds is one of my all time favorite dubstep artists, songs of theirs like “Under the Dancing Feet” and “Elders” are timeless.  Cyrus brings a different style, more industrial and aggressive, and will surely mash up the dance.  Opening with Djunya sets the stage – don’t sleep!
Date: 2009-04-18
Tickets: $7 before 11, $10 after

Antiserum, Bakir, and Dubsworth EP on Dubs Alive


Dubsalive - Click for full artThis EP is the first release on San Francisco based Dubs Alive Records – DAV001. It features Antiserum & Dubsworth on the A, and Bakir & Dubsworth on the AA, if you can even call it that when it’s digital. All three tracks have live instruments played by the performers, which gives this release a unique feel among dubstep.

The first track “Ugly Mon” from Antiserum and Dubsworth is a some bang your head business, a metal stepper complete with guitar riffs courtesy Dubsworth. This tune is definitely on the dirty side for me but I could totally see it going off in a club. Fans of DZ, Distance, 16 Bit, Ripple, Roommate, etc should definitely check this.

Antiserum & Dubsworth – Ugly Mon

The meat of this three-tune sandwich for me is “Pudding Pop.” Liberally applied effects on the trumpet and snares dub this one to outer space and the wobble keeps it bubblin’. Reminds me of Kanka or a more upbeat Rhythm & Sound. This song’s a personal. Rec’d if you like Clouds, Kanka, Radikal Guru, the WAR series, and related. Dubby live trumpet played by Bakir.

Rounding out the EP is “Casus Belly” which is basically a cross between the first two. Dubby effects and Bakir on the clavinet carry you into the tune where you’re met by ravey synths and a four-on-the-floor to take you out. I was curious about the name so I asked Ric (Bakir) about it who told me that it’s a pun on the latin phrase “casus belli” which means the justifications for the starting a war. I don’t think dubstep is going to start any wars soon though, fortunately. Rec’s similar to the first one, though to be honest I’m not sure there is much in this vein. Really original work. Would kill as a transition track between dubstep and bassline.
