The Illuminated – ‘Scavenger/TMSV Remix’ [New Moon]

NMN009D

EZZZZZZ everyone, thanks for checking in again.

Today I wanted to shed some (more) light on the forthcoming single from New Moon Recordings, ‘Scavenger’, written by Dutch trio ‘The Illumninated’.  These guys have been on a healthy path of progress for the past year, receiving support from the likes of VIVEK, Skream & Benga (first time I heard Scavenger!), Joe Nice, and N-Type to name a few.  As The Illuminated discography begins to parallel the maturation of their sound, the signing with New Moon signals a certainty with regard to their longevity in the dubstep scene.

As mentioned above, ‘Scavenger’ has been receiving support for some time now from top DJ’s.  The tune’s uncanny fusion of nostalgic minimalism and depth, oriental strings and tropical wildlife, in the context of modernized engineering capabilities provide a stunning output built to batter soundsystems and elevate the listener’s mind into a rainforest of sonic bliss.  TMSV takes the reigns on the B side with his remix of ‘Scavenger’, adding his notoriously stunning percussive energy and dropping the bass into subterranean realms while still maintaining the song’s original aesthetic.

Have a listen below, and mark your calendars for the release of this one!

RELEASE DATE:  16TH DECEMBER 2013

Asylum – Exclusive ‘Live From The Future’ Mix Pt. 2

Uprise Audio - Live From The Future

Big up everyone.  Welcome back.

Today marks two important things: the 1 year anniversary of Uprise Audio’s launch and Part 2 of the ‘Live From The Future’ x Bassweight Society exclusive mix series.  Taiko’s contribution for part 1 was an immense display of the heavyweight’s ability to seamlessly blend tunes, as well as the production mastery that continues to push Uprise forward as one of the most promising imprint’s within dubstep.  Asylum follows Taiko’s lead and curates another massive mix jam-packed with VIP’s (including a VIP of ‘Zero Gravity’ off the LFTF LP!) from the man himself and dubs from Biome, Ben Verse and Konvex.  The mix also showcases a healthy collection of tunes recently released, that still pack a punch.

Asylum has had great success since his solo career, taking a breather from the drum and bass alias ‘Vicious Circle’ that had been releasing some of the heaviest nuero-infused 170 tunes to date.  With his signing to Uprise, his recent appearance on GetDarker TV w/ MC Toast and his solo works/collaborations with longtime friend Ben Verse on Crunch Recordings, I think its safe to say that this badman is here to stay, certainly for the near future.

Have a listen below, and make sure you clear enough room to engage in an all-out skank session as Asylum pulls you through a journey of sonic assault.

Vaun & Animai – ‘Taking Over’ [Mindstep]

Taking Over Artwork--1020px

Big up everyone, thanks for checking again.

Today I want to shed light on the forthcoming Mindstep Music release from Vaun & Animai, featuring three stellar remixes from Wayfarer, Simbad and Sam KDC.  Animai’s hauntingly beautiful voice has received much acclaim in the underground electronic music scene, especially with her integral role in Wayfarer’s chart-smashing composition, ‘Reflections’, featured on the ‘Live From The Future’ LP under Uprise Audio’s umbrella.  With Vaun’s residency in Bristol and the influence brought by such a flowering mecca of musical prowess, he has harnessed a distinct and soulful sound.  Add Animai’s history of involvement with soul and jazz music, and these two together on the track was a match made in the stars.

The accompanying remixes cover an array of stylistic approach, crossing genre and tempo barriers.  Wayfarer’s stripped back construction with snarls placed sparsly amidst his signature thundering drums, Simbad’s ethereal transformation, and Sam KDC’s halftime construction drenched in a pool of sub warmth, all compliment and maintain the original’s emotive vibe.

Full previews have yet to be released but, Deeper Vibrations have been given the pleasure of hosting an exclusive full-length version of ‘Taking Over’ from the originators.  Have a listen below and stay locked with Mindstep, Vaun and Animai for further release details.  ***UPDATE 11/15/13: Full previews have been released – see below***

RELEASE DATE:  25 NOVEMBER 2013

Ten Walls – ‘Requiem’ EP [LAD013]

Ten Walls Requiem EP Art

 

Ten walls have returned fresh off the hype of their ‘Gotham’ EP released on Innervisions earlier this year that took the summertime by storm and reached anthemic status, being rinsed and praised by countless DJ’s across the globe – with good reason, too.  As the mysterious moniker pushes his sound further, striving to maintain a concept in which “the focus is moved away from the personality of the artist so that the music can more directly speak for itself”, I can only hope that the execution of his productions are maintained.  Some of the most emotive and powerful house music being released right now; music actually deserving of the “deep” descriptor being so frivolously tossed around the house/techno scene over the past year.  Take a listen below, I hope you enjoy.

Release Date:  Digital – November 4th / Vinyl – December 9th
