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!

For the latest feature I hit up the Subreachers, a duo coming out of Belgium.  Bass heavy productions are coming out with increasing frequency, what separates the wheat from the chaff is the ability to keep both the groove and intensity flowing. Subreachers nail it consistently.  Listen above for their guest mix on the radio, or read below for a brief interview.

SNF: Lets start off with a bit about yourselves – how it is there in Belgium,
musically and otherwise?

Subreachers: Matthias and me knew each other from back in the highschool days. We both dropped out (eventually getting our degrees in an other way :p) but lost touch with each other for a few years. Until we met back and found out that we were both into dubstep. It wasn’t long before we decided to have a go at producing. We made some tunes and sent them to the national alternative radiostation. Surprisingly one of them got picked and got a feature on the show. That’s were we started to do the Subreachers thing and got more focused on producing and dj’ing. Belgium has a good healthy scene but as everywhere the majority of the partys / kids are all about the heavy hitting dancefloor bombs. But it’s cool because there are some smaller scale promotors who do deep end nights and aren’t afraid to mix it up with a techno headliner etc. Otherwise Belgium is a nice country to live in apart from being pretty expensive, it’s all good.

SNF: What was your path to finding electronic music and why did you decide to
start making it?

Tim: I found out pretty quickly about electronic music through my dads record collection which spans from 1970’s disco classic to 1990 house and techno classics. I started fooling around with the decks at a pretty young age and always kept my interest in music and discovering new music and styles. I decided i’d have a go at making something of myself at 19 years of age. I was big into disco and disco edits, so i started fiddling around with some audio software and made my own edits, mostly obscure stuff that i reworked and made dub version of. I still have all these tracks so if any label is interested :p.

Matthias: I listened to all kinds of genres when I was a teenager, from trance at young age to heavy metal some years later. My dad is a musician too, so logically I started playing piano when I was 7 or 8. When I was 16 I got into drum & bass & a few months later I bought myself some decks & started dj’ing. Then later on when I discovered dubstep I knew this was the genre I was waiting for. My genre. When I met Tim again after school we both started producing in ableton & so it started. When I hear the stuff I made like 2 years ago it’s so funny.. I’m glad we evolved a lot now.

SNF: Where do you seek inspiration for your productions?

Subreachers: I think it varies from time to time. We go trough phases. We love so much music that we get inspired by alot of different stuff. But to give you an idea our inspirations go from jungle to detroit techno to ambient, film music, field recordings, oldschool electro and so on.

SNF: Who’s on your radar now that’s making high quality music?

Subreachers: We love alot of producers and there are a few so here’s the namedrop: Wachs lyrical, Jazzy Jazzy, Valor, Riskotheque, Von D, Lurka,
Submerse, Resketch, XI, DFRNT, Ruckspin,  .. sorry for anyone we forgot the mention, you’re all large !

SNF: What plans do you have for the future?

Subreachers: Plans for the future are, keep on making music and touring alot, keep
doing our thing and enjoying it.

SNF: What should we be looking out for?

Subreachers: We’ve got some upcoming releases, there’s a remix we did for DFNRT coming out on Echodub, Cd , Digi + Double pack on live beyond, keep your eyes open for that one ! should be dropping mid september, there’s some dnb material coming on a very big label, all we can say is keep your eyes open ;-)
