Sunshine Biscuit Factory Takeover

 

A Taste of Blackheart


It’s time for a sampler of some fresh Blackheart material. The trio of Swatchdog, DOS and Preep out of Oakland, CA have been rocking parties around the bay and beyond for time now and their fresh material is bangin. Dates coming up in SF, Oakland, Burning Man, and more. Look out also for “Jupiter” forthcoming on Brap Dem Recordings, that one’s major.

Blackheart – Dazed

I’m starting with my personal favorite which builds off a Led Zeppelin sample, a sparse halftime beat, and effected out guitars into a seriously deep tune. This reminds me of some of the live guitar work that Dubsworth has been doing lately, which is definitely a good thing.

Blackheart – Airbag VIP

This VIP is a bassline roller. Watch out if you’ve got your sub turned up, this might blast you out of your seat. Effected out guitars are in full effect again with an aggressive lead synth to match. Bass lovers listen for the second drop at around 3:40, it’s massive. Proper dancefloor rocker.

Blackheart – Kitten

Kitten is another of the deeper persuasion with builds that take you back to the depths and a spacious, almost ghostly feel.  I love the switches in the rhythm in this one & the sound design, very well produced.

Blackheart – Mission

Last in these four selections is Mission, a wobbly dubstep riddim complete with 80’s era synth horns and upbeat reggae synths.  Bubble to this one.  These four together show diverse and quality productions coming from Blackheart, keep your ears open for more.

Redline Volume 2 Mixed by Blackheart


Blackheart Redline MixThis big mix from Blackheart out of Oakland, CA done for the Redline mix series is a must listen. Blackheart is a trio of Swatchdog, DOS, Preep and definitely light up the dance when I’ve seen them.  They just played at the Makeout sessions last night which you can check out on the dubstep.fm archives.  Give this one a listen and big them up on their myspace or on groundscore.  See them live next at Machine Gun Funk down in San Jose or surely soon again in the city.
