TMSV – ‘Theory’ EP [BOX CLEVER]

TMSV THEORY ART

Tomas Roels has secured a very strong release schedule for himself since recently finishing university.  Whether this is a result of, or just coincidence, I’ll never know.  Truthfully, I don’t care either.  Anyways, the man has been on a sonic-assault rampage, writing and signing beats quicker than false information regarding Montsanto spreads through the internet.  After announcement of his Artikal UK release backed with a naughty remix from the legend LX One, the underground was left stumped by the immensity of ‘Haze’.  To continue the momentum with a brute force, Box Clever has just announced the six-track (2 digital exclusive) EP that will be released sometime mid-September.  Featuring collaborations with Beezy & Widowmaker, the release promises to be diverse and immensely powerful, as the previews will attest to.

Tracklist:

1. Crashing feat. Beezy
2. Too Much
3. Theory
4. Persei feat. Widowmaker
5. Explain [digital exclusive]
6. Scientific [digital exclusive]

Below are previews to the four beats put on the vinyl.  The tracks ‘Theory’ and ‘Persei’ ft. Widowmaker are my personal favorites, but you can decide for yourself.  Keep your eyes locked on the pages below for future announcements regarding this release and anything else related to the  parties involved.

Gantz – ‘Stayer/Lyrical Trick’ [IMRV005]

IMRV005 ART

Gantz returns to the Innamind imprint with two rhythmically syncopated beats that showcase the young Turk’s uncanny ability to program drum patterns in a  concise, and intentional manner.  His distant proximity to the UK scene seems to aid in establishing the ‘Gantz’ sound, as his track formulas are generally unique and provide a complex landscape of percussive arrangement not seen in most dubstep.

Emir also just released his track ‘U Won’t Mind’ b/w Thelem’s remix via Black Box records not far back, so make sure the check that one out ———->  HERE.  The remainder of 2013 is going to be exciting as he just recently announced the signing of another 12” that will be out in the near future.  Be sure to follow his page (below) to get further updates on the label and tracks that will be releasing!

Author – ‘Forward Forever’ LP [Black Box]

author-logo-black

Bless up fam’.

Just thought I’d share something with you quickly.  After releasing one of the finest collections of music the dubstep community has seen in 2011, Author has announced their second LP, titled ‘Forward Forever’, which is due for release on Black Box records towards the end of June.  According to FACT Mag:

“In June, the Leeds producers will team up once again for a new album, Forward Forever. The record promises a more “natural-feeling, organic vibe”, and points to Ninja Tune favourites The Cinematic Orchestra and Bonobo as key influences. Guest spots are promised from UK hip-hop face Jehst and battle regular Stig Of The Dump. Black Canvas’ Rider Shafique, last heard on Kahn’s ‘Late Night Blues’, will also appear, as will reggae vocalist Dan Man.”

 They’ve been kind enough to release a preview from one of the tracks off the album, as well as put together a mix to celebrate the announcement.  I’ve listed both below.  Listeners can rest assured that this album will be of much acclaim throughout the rest of the year, and will likely attain a timelessness similar to the self-titled ‘Author’ LP released on Tectonic.  I will keep this page updated as time goes along.  Keep your eyes peeled!

Tracklist:

1. After Time feat. Quark

LAS – ‘Zaikedelic/Preacher’ [BOXCLEVER]

LAS BlackBox

Big up fam’

Got a short, but much more than sweet feature for you today.  I wanted to highlight the most recent release from the elusive Finnish badman – LAS (Love And Sound).  Ever since I stumbled across his music, when his tune ‘Power Surge’ was featured on Black Box 018 in October of 2011, I’ve had a very strong affinity for the his sound – and that record still finds itself in my sets more often than not!  An exceptional producer that cannot be pigeonholed to any stylistic output, and displays cunning musical abilites, grafting the worlds of analog and digital.

This release follows suit of transcending preconceived notions, bringing together raw hip-hop (esque) drum patterning and powerfully modern sub-movement.  My favorite off this single is ‘Zaikadelic’ due to its overall unique sound, giving off an analog jungle-influenced vibe.  The flip ‘Preaching’ falls into the more standard halfstep format, employing a daunting pad that swirls out of the mix intermittently, amidst a clean bongo loop and a sub-bass that will only be heard with proper frequency response in your sound.  The digital bonus track – ‘Zone Of Bones’ – puts out a gritty LFO sub, with reverbed and delayed droplets that bounce around as atmospheres are interchanging, with subtlety as their ‘modus operandi’.

.

The release is out in stores now, so make sure to pick it up before it’s gone (if you’re a vinyl head)!  I’ve included a couple links to both vinyl and digital purchases.

Biome – Two Way EP (BLACKBOX029)

 

Bless everybody.  Hope all is well with the fam’.  Today I wanted to take some time out to highlight the recent EP released by Biome.  As if this man has not been absolutely slaying bass bins for the past 6 months (at least), he has made his presence even more visible with this latest release on Black Box.  With one of the hardest sounds in the deeper side of the 140 arena, Biome has carved out his place like a force that cannot be reckoned with.  I have promoted much of his music within the time span of Bassweight Society’s existence and he is definitely one of my favorite producers.  This 4 Track 2 x 12″ release sees a more calm Biome (or at least that’s how I’ve perceived it) than his recent work with the Macabre Unit crew and his release on New Moon not too long ago – I find it very refreshing.  The Two Way EP is an excellent addition to the Black Box discography, holding true to the imprints sound.

Reality || Vinyl, Digital

This beat starts off with some beautiful atmospherics and quickly progresses into a pressure-ridden halfstep masterpiece.  The space utilized in between each bass element creates grooves that would cause a paraplegic to off his/her chair and straight mash the dance.  I was instantly hooked by the eerie pads used in the track and I’m sure each of you will find an element that tickles your fancy within this one.

Inner Mind || Vinyl, Digital

This tune embodies the “calm” Biome that I spoke of in the introduction of this feature.  Preceding this release I’ve seen Biome on very high-energy trend, utilizing extremely heavy tribal-styled percussion to keep the dance inna’ zone.  Inner Mind utilizes calming vocals, eyes down piano chords, and atmospherics that all equate to a brilliant work of art.  I find this tune to be extremely peaceful, and to be honest, thought-provoking.  I say thought-provoking because each time I play this one I can’t help but reminisce on past memories, analyze current situations, and just think.  I’m going to have to say that this is my persy off the EP.

Charged || Vinyl, Digital

In uniform with the calmer vibe of the EP, ‘Charged’ keeps the beat slow but the vibes large.  Biome’s unmatched ability to modulate growling basslines is apparent in this stomper as the tune is constantly interchanging between them.  The snare hit in this beat really makes me exaggerate my body movements as it is crisp in it’s strike and fades flawlessly, with just the right amount of reverb.

Two Way || Vinyl, Digital

To wrap up the release is ‘Two Way’.  This one is for the steppers!  A very clean and constant kick drum floods the sound field while an array of hats and snares compliment the grooves.  For some reason I picture a mad scientist frantically searching for a lost potion when I listen to this tune.  Haha, yeah, I’m weird.

Many of you have probably already purchased this but, if you haven’t, DO IT!  It’s available at all good record shops and online stores.  You can preview all of the tunes down below via the Black Box Soundcloud page.

Hope you enjoy the sounds!  Support the artists, show them some love and most importantly, DON’T PIRATE MUSIC.  Be sure to check later this week, most likely Thursday, as I have a very special feature/interview with a Bristolian producer that has been turning heads on the late!  Big up to all the readers, your support means the world to me.  Until next time…

To the gods.
