Eassssyyyyyyy people. Hope this post is reaching you in good health and spirits! I am absolutely exhausted from watching Breakage last night in Hollywood. Up into the early hours of the morning. Every time I see that man my level of respect jumps up immensely. He is truly one of the sickest producers/DJ’s in the game. His style of music is so unique, constantly coming at you with these huge 4×4 kick drums and some of the most ravey synths I have ever heard. If any of you haven’t been lucky enough to see one his performances I HIGHLY recommend grabbing a ticket to his show next time he comes to your town. He went into some jungle last night for about 15 minutes too and it was just straight vibes man. It was really sick to see all these little kids who, for the most part, didn’t even know who he was just go nuts. I mean honestly I don’t think you can resist brukking out to your fullest potential when he hops on the decks, his skills are unmatched. Big up to the Bassrush crew for bringing him out to the Funktion Wednesday’s, BWS was there is full effect and had a blast. Tonight, if you’re in the LA area I would highly recommend checking out Respect at the Dragonfly as Atlantic Connection will be headlining and that performance will most definitely be worth checking out!
Now, let’s get down to today’s music. First up we have another release coming from the homies over at Inna Riddim. The Funky Steppa EP, coming from new found talentCato, is filled with 4 tracks of varying stylistic approach, all real quality productions. Personally, my favorite tune on this release is ‘Dizzy Cow’. This tune comes with a mad funky drop that sets the dance up perfectly for footwork business! Cato is definitely a guy to keep your eyes on because it’s very likely that he will be making big moves this year. Very shortly after Inna Riddim snagged him up for this EP, N-Type took notice of Cato and signed the track ‘Who’s Cato’ to release on his 100% Pure Dubstep vol.2 compilation that was released March of last year. The Funky Steppa EP will be available for download at all major digital outlets such as Juno, Beatport, and Itunes. Take a listen below to preview and show Cato some love!

The next track that we have to showcase is one from Camu. When I first came across this guy, I expressed that his music the definition of “meditating on bassweight’. This track, called ‘Tajmi’, is no different. He layers up the track with beautifully sequenced drums, eastern vibe vocal chants, and distant synths that add an ambiance to the track that is so deep. This guy really needs to get more exposure. I mean, it could be a longshot, but his vibes are so suited for the Deep Medi imprint, in my opinion. Hopefully his sounds will blow up because the more effort that this fellow is able to put into his productions the more our ears will be blessed. Lend an ear below to this gem.
The last track of the day is one coming from two up-and-coming producers that go by the names Stigma & Gestalt. The tune, titled ‘Tribes’, is a really deep lurker! Comes hard with a growling bassline that’s fitted to scare the children away, no doubt. The vocals that come in at the beginning immediately hook you and transport your mind into a very renaissance-esque vibe that I envision myself marching to battle with. Haha, man that probably sounds weird but, it’s the truth. Once tune progresses into it’s climax, percussion floods the airwaves and the eyes down business begins. Again, these are two producers that you should really keep your ears on because if they continue to produce tunes like this they are going to get noticed quicker than you can say “bassweight is king”. Listen below and make sure to visit their Facebook pages and show them support. There are some free 320’s on Stigma’s page for those who ‘like’ it, so get amongst it people!

Alright that’s it for today, like I said, I’m exhausted and need to go to sleep haha. Check back tomorrow as Shice will be bringing some more heat to the table. Make sure you stay locked on this page because we have an interview with an artist that is of the highest caliber coming your way, as always :). Bless.
To the gods.

Big up for featuring Camu’s sounds! He definitely deserves to get more recognition.
