Review: Mele – Bombay EP (MIX008)

The latest release on Dre Skull’s reggae/dancehall/funky label Mixpak records is this stellar EP coming from Mele out of England near Liverpool (Twitter, Myspace).  This one has three originals and three remixes, I’m into 5 out of 6. This review is a bit belated but the EP is so large I’ve gotta do it.

The title cut Bombay is exactly the type of undefinable music that’s got me captivated at the moment, it’s some blend of reggae/ska guitars, intense kicks and bird chirps for atmosphere with a cut-up sample (Nuclear Bomb) as the only vocals.  This is the one remixed three times, back to those later.  Next on the EP is “Flexi,” very solid 2step vibes for 2010.  Last of the originals is “And Of The Son” again with a mutant 2step feel and my personal favorite of the originals.

First of the three remixes of “Bombay” comes from Nadastrom (Wash. D.C., Myspace) that emphasizes the cut-up vocals in the original along with a juke beat and some dangerous basslines.  I just rebuilt a subwoofer yesterday and was testing this one on it, trust it’s a worthy bass test for any system.  Shortstuff dropped this one Thursday at Icee Hot and it mashed up the dance.  Personal favorite on the release.  French Fries (Paris, Myspace) tackle remix duties next with a funky house styled rerub of the original, replacing the ska guitars with an alien synth noise similar to something you might hear out of Roska.  Funky crew this one yours.  The last remix from HeavyFeet (Manchester, Myspace) is really the only one I’m not personally into on the release but if you’re into bassline house it might be up your alley.

One last thing I have to add is that Mele just set off the recent Mixpak podcast with an hour long mix of everything from house to dubstep to dancehall.  Absolute heat.  Click here for full subscription info, audio & tracklist.

Introducing: KingThing

I linked up with Olly KingThing some time ago through the Future Garage forum, though his music is really undefinable.  His productions have been consistently excellent and are featured in his guest mix, on top of this he’s affiliated with Night Audio & Fortified Audio and showcases some hot forthcoming tracks on each.  For a bit more info, check out this brief interview:

SNF: Always have to start with an intro: where are you coming from and how’d you get into music and production?

KingThing: I’m from Chester, a small town in between Liverpool and Manchester (more or less). Like a fair amount of people i’d been making music in various guises all my life, and then one day somebody stuck a copy of Reason infront of me and I’ve never looked back – i liked the fact that it was all me, there was no working with bandmates etc, i got complete control over the music – which is how i like it ;) So im either an introspective genius or an unsociable cunt, i haven’t decided yet. Its been a fun journey trying to figure it out though:p But through that avenue i came to Logic and Ableton, and it all began to get pretty serious when i moved to Leeds about 4/5 years ago – if you like music, you love Leeds.
