Dubs Alive 006 with The Spit Brothers, Luthor, Djunya and a free DL

The latest out on the San Francisco imprint Dubs Alive is this diverse 5 track EP with originals from The Spit Brothers and Luthor, and with Bakir, Djunya and 6blocc on remix duties.  The original “No Curfew” is a spooky, basswise tune that’s like a soundtrack to a new Dick Tracy film. Eerie keys create a brooding mood that the ultradeep bassline strongly reinforces. If you’re listening to this on headphones trust you’re missing out on half the song on the low end. Things get hectic in the second half, getting hyper with a 4×4 beat making this a strong transition song between sounds.

Djunya steps up next to tackle a remix of “No Curfew”, adding more swagger to the beat but maintaining the eerie feel of the original with keys and brass. When the main bit drops in this becomes an incredible remix with doubled up kicks and added synths overtop. Guaranteed to light up a dance.

Out of the five songs on the release the only one that doesn’t work is the 6blocc remix where the vibe of the original is entirely lost in an attempt to reproduce Bombaman-esque bass sounds that falls way short. Feels far too cookie cutter.

Luthor brings the next original with his emotive, bass heavy sound. Complex beats and a nice atmosphere built by Luthor make this one a quality late night or Sunday morning tune, matching elements of the jazzy sound found in many Dubs Alive releases.  On the remix of this one Bakir comes with a funky/soca styled beat under the keys and vocals of the original. The original mix is pretty mellow, this one is purely hyper. Intensity.

Along with these, Dubs Alive have put out another tune for free download, this one called “Done Gone There.” Download this one using the player below, then check the full DAV006 release using the second player.

Dubblestandart – Chrome Optimism (free DL, show tonight!)

Dubblestandart, Subatomic Sound and a gang of remix artists team up on “Chrome Optimism” with legends David Lynch and Lee Scratch Perry (both pictured smoking various dried leaves to the right).  The original Dubblestandart mix is robotic roots reggae with somewhat random interjections from Lynch overtop. The remix action is where this gets serious, with very strong work from Kush Arora, Antiserum & Bakir, Subatomic Sound and more. Check below for a nice video of the Subatomic Sound remix exploring the desert overtop the beat, fits quite well.

The Subatomic Sound and original radio mix are available for free download via the player below thanks to Emch & Subatomic Sound. If you’re in the Bay Area, both Dubblestandard and Subatomic Sound are headlining the weekly Dub Mission down at Elbo Room, so get yourself down there.

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.

EshOne – Loving What Is EP (free DL!)

EshOne (sddubstep, Soundcloud) coming out of San Diego has been producing tunes that go deep on the bass end of things for a while now and has recently decided to give away this 5 track EP chock full of heat.  Personal favorites on this are “Anti Oil Spill Dub” and “Die Cast”, though really all 5 are good.  These five in a classic dubstep style: bass heavy with tasteful wobbles and great percussion.

Be warned: the bass in these tracks is barely audible on most headphones and surely not on your laptop or imac speakers, this music is meant for an array of bassbins.  That said, if you have a sub this will give it a better workout than the last time you tried an hour of Tae Bo.

Download the EP here.

Review: Dom Hz – Mist EP (EARZ003)

The third release on the relatively new but very strong Open Earz Recordings comes from Dom Hz (Manchester, Myspace) who brings a three track EP of bass heavy and emotive music.  2step & dubstep flavors abound in this with gorgeous atmosphere in all three songs.  This one out soon on vinyl, check your usual record shop.

The title track stands out on the EP in my view where a 1 minute long build releases into some massive bass with a halfstep feel.  The percussion stays dynamic which is key to building a good halfstep track.  Personal favorite of the release.  The second tune “Elevator Skank” has some jazzy piano against a 4×4 beat with some soca snares, similar to a jazzy version of Marcus Visionary.  Definite elevator business.  Last up “Without You” is the most emotional of the release with rolling pads and soulful vocals.  All together it’s a diverse and excellent release.

To promote this release they’ve decided to give away another track from Dom Hz, this one called “Black Diamonds.”  Summertime feel on this one, music for a train ride to some vacation spot or a hillside picnic.

Zeno – Red Dragon Mix

Zeno just put together this excellent mix “Red Dragon” for mass consumption.  It weaves in and out of mellow dubwise selections and dubstep that will mop the floor with your face and is packed with original productions from Zeno himself.  Truly excellent blends in this one too.  Look out for the wolves inside, there’s two of them and they have lasers.  Zeno said that he’s put his blood, sweat and tears into this one and it shows.
