DJG – Voids One and Two (free DL)

Dean DJG has decided to follow up his pair of excellent recent releases with two EPs of free material entitled Voids One and Voids Two. Voids One is built for the raving crew and club DJs, expect standard massive DJG bass, quality percussion, sounds to make you move your body.  Voids Two is for the more introspective out there, deeper sounds built to be a bit more emotional and closer to the heart of DJG. A brief summary of these tunes:

These are songs that I’ve never really been able to let go of, nearly all of them I pulled from scheduled releases or turned away offers from labels for various reasons. They are songs that I really believe in and feel connected to. Some were written as far back as 2007 and as recently as a month ago and they’ve been supported by an endless list of big name djs and requested by friends and listeners for release.

The full EPs will be available Wednesday the 15th over at DJG’s site.

Until then, grab Lichen here. This one’s a personal favorite.

Steppin into Tomorrow with SNF 042 08.30.10 on Dubstep.FM

This program is packed with the sound that has been so influential to me over the last year or so – UK funky house & its derivatives. Dubstep.FM has been a great host station to me but as the diversity of things I’ve been playing grows it’s clear that I should move to a station that isn’t all dubstep. The tracklist from this episode is a prime example.

For these reasons I’m proud to announce that the show will be moving to Sub.FM starting soon. The time is going to remain the same but the day is going to change to Tuesdays. Otherwise things will be the same with tracklists posted here & at soundcloud and podcasts sent out as normal. I still plan on playing dubstep, but I’ll be adding more funky house and new dnb sounds. Forward!

Review: DJG – Hydrated Space Cakes (WHEELYDEALY008, WARM016)

DJG is among a select group of artists that can claim responsibility for the explosion of dubstep in San Francisco, and he did it while pushing the sounds of drum & bass under his alterego Genome.  Lately a pair of releases from DJG have come out: grade-A dubstep on a Headhunter collboration, and some cutting edge autonomic drumnbass sounds.  All 5 tracks here are masterful productions: spacious, bass heavy music with absolute quality percussion.

Up first is the latest on N-Type’s label Wheel & Deal, and trust these two are worthy of the label name. With support from a legion of DJs, these tunes have been rumbling dancefloors around the world. The a-side “Pressure” begins with droning vocals that remind me of Tuvan throat singing. Bassline murderation then ensues with a mutant halftime feel on the percussion that, combined with the droning vocals, produces a surreal soundscape. Prime time audio here. On the flip, Headhunter aka Addison Groove joins up for “Space Cakes“. Munch one of these and head for outer space on a tune with alien synth stabs, odd voices, and of course huge bassweight.  Two for two on this one.

AA. DJG & Headhunter – Spacecakes (clip) – Wheel & Deal *out now* by DJG

Next I’d like to change the pace and change the style with the latest on Warm Communications, a drumnbass label based in Texas. These three showcase an exciting new “autonomic” sound in dnb coming from the likes of dBridge, Instra:mental, Vaccine, ASC, Spectra Soul and more. The sound is driven by rolling basslines, strong use of atmospherics and substantially less percussion than you’ll find in most dnb. Amens are notably lacking. First up is “Hydrate“, the foundation of the 3-track EP with a lush bassline holding down the foundation under somewhat erratic yet danceable percussion. Sparse vocal samples and chirps keep things rolling. Next, Consequence steps up on remix duties adding what I can only describe as microkicks to drive the beat and keeping choice elements of the original.  Look out for the breakdown & build into the second half, dangerous. Redone by DJG in a dubwise style, “Hydration Dub” closes out the release and is my favorite of the three.  The bassline changes up to sound a bit more like Robbie Shakespeare in the studio with echoes on the percussion that would make Scientist grin. Three for three.
