Steppin into Tomorrow with SNF 016 03.01.10 on Dubstep.FM


Steppin into Tomorrow with SNFThis one on the darker side of things for the first half and then into the light in the second bit.  New bits inside from Snipaz, FBOM, BetaSP & Mite, and more.  More technical issues on the outro of this one, sorry for the abrupt ending, but the good news that I think I’ve figured out the source :)   For those using USB soundcards, I wouldn’t recommend connecting them via a USB hub, or at least as cheap of a USB hub as I’m currently using  :)   Hopefully all worked out by next time.

Steppin into Tomorrow with SNF 011 01.25.10 on Dubstep.FM


Steppin into Tomorrow with SNFI’m deeply into this show from the 25th, so many new sounds inside it’s almost inappropriate.  New dubs from Swarms, Distal, Hypno, and more, new releases from Pangaea, Baobinga & ID, Mosca, Desto, Mizz Beats, Geiom, Sully, and Heny G among others.  I reviewed the Desto and Mizz Beats releases for the most recent issue of Big Up Magazine, you’re definitely going to want to check that out.  Extremely well done magazine for anyone who’s interested in bass music.

With this episode I’m switching the way you can subscribe to these to make it easier.  This weekly Dubstep.FM show keeps me busy enough that I don’t have time to regularly do the Dubstepped Radio episodes anymore, so I’m going to merge the feed of this with the Radio feed and you can find them both on iTunes at Dubstepped Radio.  Click here to view the new iTunes store podcast page.

This small change will make it easier to subscribe to this show on mobile devices and in iTunes generally.  With this all said, I do still have plans to do features on US/CA producers on Dubstepped Radio episodes which will be proper studio mixes with full art and whatnot, they’ll just appear in the same podcast as the Steppin into Tomorrow episodes.

Bleh, too many words, this is what you really want:

Shortstack in the area


It’s been 10 months since I started Dubstepped it’s been a hell of a lot of fun.  Now for some growth.  I’m ridiculously happy to welcome the addition of a new writer, DJ Shortstack (Heat Promotions) out of Atlanta.  Shortstack brings a second perspective on dubstep and trust me when I say that he’s got some big posts coming up here.  Catch him playing out in the Atlanta area and other spots.

Shortstack recently recorded a set he played at Tuff Tuesdays in Atlanta, this is probably the best introduction I could give:

I.D. – Exclusive September Promo Mix


I.D.I just got sent this mix this morning from Manchester-based DJ I.D. (Earwax, Enchufada, Heavy Artillery) and I’ve been rinsing it all day.  It’s exclusive to the site for the time being and heading to more places soon.  I.D.’s releases recently (especially the Earwax one) have been stellar, take note.

Back to the mix – it’s got forthcoming tunes from Gemmy, TRG, DJ Madd, Toasty, and more.  What REALLY got me was the Baobinga & I.D. remix of the kuduro artist DJ Znobia out on the Portuguese label Enchufada which broke the kuduro legends Buraka Som Sistema.  I am such a fan of kuduro it’s irrational, here’s a mix or two to check out the style.  It’s basically Angolan music fused with Portuguese urban rhythms and it’s one of the most danceable genres of music that exists.  This mix from I.D. has a section in the middle that’s heavily influenced by kuduro that starts with the DJ Znobia remix and is the highlight of the mix for me.  Big respect on this sound, I really need to hear more.

The mix starts with futuristic off-key or wonky sounds, moves into some deeper vibes with a touch of wobble, the kuduro segment, and maintains intensity to the end.  Solid mixing, solid selections, put it on your mp3 player now.

San Franciscans need to check track 3 in this mix titled “Rainbow Road” by Gemmy and then come see him along with Mary Anne Hobbs, Akira Kiteshi, and loads more tomorrow night.

Ricky Switch presents the DubRap mixtape ft Sky-I, Starski, and more


Dub Rap FrontDub Rap Back
Ricky Switch, Pimp Hop Records, and a host of MCs from the Bay Area and beyond present Dub Rap volume 1, a hype and diverse mixtape of dubstep and glitch beats with MCs on the track.  Styles are diverse including autotuned flows, screwed & chopped cuts, glitched out beats and ragga MCs.  This one’s a guaranteed party rocker with an excellent job by the MCs over a killer selection of dubstep beats. Get it for free at dubrap.com.  Highlights for me include Fed the Thief, Fever, Monster, Chains, Wide Open, Big Up, and Yes I’m Back, and for the top two I’d have to go with Rankin Scroo on My Trees and Dub Life. Stream it here:
They say in the intro jungle or dubstep is the only natural progression for hiphop, I’m not sure it’s the only one but I think the sound has been moving in that direction for a while. Some examples here from J. Dilla:

Here’s the official summary of the mixtape:

Over a year in the making, countless hours logged, blood, sweat, and tears poured into it, and it’s day has finally arrived, Enter: Dub Rap. This new genre of music has been defined and developed thru the making of DJ Ricky Switch’s newest mixtape: Dub Rap Volume1, featuring One Drop. Put your seat belts on it’s gonna be a bumpy ride, but if your ears are ready to hear the future of music, stay tuned….Rewind four years prior, to a remote island off the north coast of Ireland where a young, but seasoned DrumNBass DJ named Ricky Switch was first being being exposed to wobble basslines, boom bap slaps, and a whole new sound of music which he soon found himself engulfed in, Dubstep. Shortly after, Ricky packed his bags and moved out to California, the San Francisco Bay Area to be exact. He found his way DJ’ing the few Dubstep and DnB shows that he could find, and doing so he also became involved in the local hip hop scene, where he joined the underground rap group Distant Relatives. In due course, he would share a studio with local Bay Area Rapper Starski, and while Ricky would be bumping dubstep dj sets in one room, Starski and his crew were knocking out raps in the other. It was only a matter of time before peanut butter met the chocolate and Reese’s Pieces was made, or as they call it Dub Rap.

During the process of working on the mixtape, they created a marriage the authentic sounds of UK Dubstep music and hardcore underground bay area MC’s and singers. Instantly, the artists became fully engrossed in the sounds and space that Dubstep offers a vocalist and found many ways to deliver their art form. Over 50 tracks were recorded in a year’s time, and only about half of them made it to the mixtape (respect to the ones that didn’t). The Dub Rap sound that came out of this experience is an intense mix of otherworldly sounds courtesy of UK Dubstep rhythms, and the future of bay area and worldwide hip hop music.

This project was done with much praise and respect given to the originators of Dubstep, and the producers who made the music that made this mix possible. It’s aimed at giving the genre another avenue to allow it to grow and to expose more people to it’s undeniable sound and originality. The core artists (the mcs/ singers) involved have no doubts that they will continue to work within this medium of art to allow their creative juices to flourish and expand on an ever broadening horizon of Dubstep visions. Their is no question that the genre of “Dubrap” will catch on with other artists the world over, and allow rappers and singers alike to grow into the next millennium of audio murder: Dubstep and now Dubrap.

 

iTAL tEK mix for Bun-E


Bun-E iTAL tEK mix

Killer 25 minute mix from iTAL tEK out of Brighton, UK.  This one ranges from noise in the start to some techy dubstep and even a smidgen of breakcore.  Quite diverse given how short it is.  Excellent mix, bigup iTAL tEK.  Check his myspace.

This mix was done for the Bun-E netlabel.
