Steppin into Yesterday with SNF 037 07.26.10 on Dubstep.FM


I was feeling a bit nostalgic last week after Mary Anne Hobbs announced that she’s stepping down from her Radio 1 show which is, and has been for a while, pretty much the apex of underground dance music education.  This got me in the mood for some classics so I decided to take a break from the bleeding edge of dance music and look backwards towards 2006/2007.  Some of my all time favorite tracks are in this mix, and strong representation from some of the best labels out there: Hyperdub, Tempa, Tectonic, DMZ, and Hotflush.  Step into the time machine…

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.
