Steppin into Tomorrow with SNF 014 02.15.10 on Dubstep.FM


Steppin into Tomorrow with SNFAll manner of basswise vibrations in this epsiode, including new tracks from Sepalcure, Zeno, Nebulla & Soroka, J. Rogers, Idlemode, ReSketch, KingThing, and more.  This one has some serious heat inside, tons of personal favorites.  This is a lighter episode soundwise with no really grimy/wobbly bits, also lots of tunes based around love and loving sounds, probably some lingering valentine’s day in the air.

TONIGHT: Slayers Club 1yr Anniversary with David Last, MC Zulu, Mochipet, Kush Arora, and more


Location: Club Six (map & info)
Description: Slayers Club is responsible for the popular, cutting-edge weekly “Terenga – Global Bass Sessions” at Little Baobab (“The best weekly in San Francisco” -Kid Kameleon/XLR8R Magazine, Surya Dub).

Coming at you from all directions, Slayers Club defies traditional boundaries by seamlessly merging dance music genres into a foot-stomping, sweat-inducing freakout firmly rooted in Bass Music Culture.

We’re celebrating our one year anniversary as a crew by bringing you some very special guests at a low, low price:

DAVID LAST w/ MC ZULU
Brooklyn NY resident and False Profits affiliate David Last makes tracks which combine the soundcraft of contemporary electronic music with the deeper-leaning funk of dancehall, dub, latin music and hip hop.

His tracks are currently released with labels like Staubgold (Berlin), The Agriculture (NYC), and Foundsound (Philly). His full length CD “The Push Pull” has gained crtical acclaim and a sizable cult following in Europe, the USA, and Japan, as has his recent Staubgold release with genius ragga vocalist MC ZULU.

The overall sound and vibe of Panamanian-Born MC Zulu (Ninja Tune, Chicago IL) is one of the Caribbean immigrants who came to America just in time to pick up on both cultures.

Like any “Born Jamerican-esque” Dancehall hybrid, the fact that it’s 75% party, with catchy, pop-anthem choruses will reel you in. The remaining 25% however, is why you’ll respect him.

He has recently collaborated with notable artists such as Ghislain Poirier, Aceyalone, Frikstailers, DJ C and Kush Arora, just to name a few. His electrifying live performances are not to be missed!

With support from:
Mochipet (Daly City Records)

Kush Arora (Surya Dub, RecordLabel Records)

Slayers Club featuring Lokae, Manitous, Professor Bang, Freddie Future, Matt Haze and Joe Mousepad on the microphone.

Having recently shared the bill with such future-forward international acts as The Glitch Mob, Flying Lotus, Kush Arora, Michael Franti & Spearhead, Kraddy, Ana Sia, Mochipet, the Slayers Club has emerged as a champion of cutting edge music, and strong supporters of the San Francisco underground music community.

After playing at LoveEvolution 2009 to a crowd of more than 100,000 with the TRBL and Fringe crews, Slayers Club is becoming a force to be reckoned with in the bubbling cauldron of creativity that is the San Francisco electronic music scene.

Deftly combining all music genres, from Dubstep to Electro, Future Crunk to Drum & Bass, the Slayers Club brings it heavy every time.

Dubstepped Radio Episode 004


Dubstepped Radio
Yes yes, it’s the fourth episode of Dubstepped Radio.  I had to take a bit of a hiatus making them but we’re back in action.  This one’s heavily vocal with the talents of Jahdan Blakkamoore, Winstrong, Sky-I, MC Zulu, Rankin Scroo, DJ Collage, Jammer and Badness on the mic.  It starts off with some 2steppy rhythms by a trio of Texas producers and then moves into some synthy futuristic ’step from KidLogic and Zeno, a vocal bashment session, some club rhythms and a reggaeish outro.  Big!

Kush Arora – The Dread Bass Chronicles


Kush Arora - The Dread Bass ChroniclesComing out tomorrow on (4/21) is the fourth studio album from Kush Arora, a San Francisco based DJ in the Surya Dub crew and producer.  Surya Dub’s monthly event at Club Six has consistently been awarded reader prizes by local magazines and never fails to get me dancing. I’m going to keep this one brief since it was also written up recently in Big Up Magazine and SFWeekly but just want to mention that if you’re into people like Disrupt, Midival Punditz, and Stephen “di genius” McGregor, then you NEED to get on this album.  The list of MCs on the album is impressive: Warrior Queen, Bongo Chilli, Juakali, MC Zulu, N4SA, and Wiseproof.  This album is more on the dancehall tip than dubstep but the synths used cause it to end up sounding like a fusion of the two.   Don’t sleep, and come check out the CD Release Party at Elbo Room on the 26th.

Kush Arora ft Juakali – Come From Yard

First off, Kush apparently (based on the SFWeekly post) is kind enough to give away his version of “Come From Yard” featuring Juakali which is one of the best tracks on the album and gets stuck in my head like super glue.  Stream it below or download it directly here.

Kush Arora ft MC Zulu – Lose Control

The next song is a dancefloor rocker in the 140bpm range called “Lose Control” with MC Zulu.  This song does an excellent job of blending dubstep and dancehall styles into something new, and I like that new thing.

Kush Arora ft Bongo Chilli – Wine Mek Me See You

The last song I’d like to preview is more straight ahead dancehall and features Bongo Chilli on the mic.  Two other songs on the album use this riddim making it the most represented with three tracks (the others are with Wiseproof and MC Zulu).  I can’t get enough of the hook in this riddim, big respects.
