Deeper & Darker Directions

What up everybody.  This week has been kinda sparce so we apologize about that.  But today we have some truly dark tracks to highlight.  All of these tunes are strictly for sound systems.

As Skream so eloquently put it “if you have no sub theres no point listening”.  So, as given away with the quote, the first track we have for you today is from the Godfather himself.  This tune embodies the side of Skream that we just can’t get enough of!  Sidestepping the aggressive, tear-out styles, he delves extremely deep into frequencies that literally cannot be heard without proper sound.  I listened to it on my laptop just to see what it would sound like and wondered how people can judge this type of music without actually hearing it.  Nevertheless, the tune is a straight up lurker.  A track that pretty much says “eat shit all you haters, I’m still here”, to all the people criticizing his current ventures into mashing up dancefloors real heavy.

Skream – Dark Keys


Then we have a couple clips from the newest addition to the Deep Medi imprint, Dark Tantrums.  Other than release from Kromestar that this guy was featured on and Mala dropping his tune in that XLR8R mix last year, this character has just been off the radar, at least to us.  The release, ‘Unborn’/’Storm’, will be Deep Medi’s 54th release and is perfectly suiting for the imprint.  Both of the tunes are for the chestplate.  Unfortunately these are just short clips but be on the look for the full version once the release drops!

Dark Tantrums – Unborn/Storm


The next track is another from our friend Compa.  He is being generous enough to give this tune out for FREE so make sure you grab your copy before the download option gets it’s card pulled.  It’s a remix that Compa did of a tune by Skin E called ‘Reveal’.  Another extremely heavy production from the hands of Compa.  If you didn’t catch the interview we did with him back in November, check it out here, there is also an exlcusive mix he built for us available for download on that post.  When we did the interview we said that he was gonna be rising quick in the game and sure enough, over the past few months Compa has secured/cleared the shelves of a release with Boka Records and also launched his ‘Dem A Talk’ remix on white label and that too flew off the shelves in a matter of hours.  A lot of good things to be coming from this guy so make sure to keep your eyes on him.

Then to ease things off we have a mix that Killawatt did for Outlook 2012, filled with 100% Killawatt productions.  One of the most innovative and amazing producers out there right now, hands down.  Fusing sounds together with an insurmountable amount of force.  Pushing boundaries, creating new levels, and holding the throne to some of the most amazing percussion in his music.  Massive up to Killawatt and his recent success.

Alright fam that’s some of the latest that we’ve got for you this time around.  We will see you tomorrow with some more music to move through your bass bins.  If you haven’t visited our Facebook page check that out, there is a lot of stuff posted on that as well.  Respect.

To the gods.

F*CK Yeah Friday

Big up to all the heads!  Yes, it’s Friday and boy do we have a HUGE lineup of tracks for you today.  We are truly fascinated at how many top-notch releases are making it out at the end of 2011 and early 2012.  With all that has happened this year, 2012 will surely play out to be one of the most interesting years for bass music, for any and all genres.

The first track that we have for you today is a collaboration between Biome and an artist previously featured on Bassweight Society, Thelem.  The track is titled ‘Jugana’, and pushes out some heart stopping low-frequencies.  The bouncy drum sequence keeps your legs on the move while your mind is on a journey through deep space, possibly to Kepler-22b.  Hopefully this track will see a release in the near future but for now enjoy this Soundcloud clip!

Biome & Thelem – Jugana


The next tune that we have is one from the EXTREMELY talented New Zealand duo, TRUTH, aka “the sonic architects of songs.”  We had the pleasure of hosting these guys at one of our shows up here in Santa Barbara and they absolutely smashed the town into pieces.  People had no idea what they were in for and when they got it, they couldn’t get enough!  This track, titled ‘Last Time’, is one engineered in the finest of manners.  The vibe that this track gives out is honestly still a mystery to us but, YOU WANT THIS FEELING.  Take a listen.

Truth – Last Time


The next pair of tracks that we have for you are an absolutely mandatory component of everybody’s music library(once they are released).  We speak of the men known as Killa & Instinct.  The Bristol based production team has been on top their game and is now looking forward to releases on Orientis Recordings and BOKA Records in early 2012.  The first track deserving of attention is one titled ‘Elements’ and is due out on a special three-part release series from Boka early next year.  A little on the chilled side of things this track is very beneficial to any thought-requiring task, as it’s percussion filled sound spectrum rolls through your body with meditative vibes.  The next one that we have is a remix of Thelem’s tune titled ‘Drone’ that was released in October of this year.  Again, this track is filled with immense percussion and bangs out some ridiculously deep and dark vibes.  Take a listen to both below!

Killa & Instinct – Elements


Thelem – Drones (Killa & Instinct Remix)


We have one final track for you today and it’s one from the man like Ipman.  We just recently featured the remix he had done of Killawatt’s ‘Sidewinder’, and he’s back on our radar with this unreal original production, titled ‘Mirage’.  This tune is an epic buildup into one of the funkiest and most bass-heavy tunes that we’ve heard on the late!  There is no room for denial that this tune is of absolute quality!  Take a listen and try not to dance, guaranteed it won’t happen :).

Ipman – Mirage


That’s the word today everybody!  Hope you all have an amazing weekend and we’ll see you again on Monday with some badman mixes to start your week off right!
