Today we’ve got a nice lineup of tunes, some released very recently and others seeing releases this week! The first few are ones we’ve never highlighted before and the last couple we’ll mention again just because they’re that good and we don’t want any of you forgetting to show your support to the artists when their releases drop.
First up we got a choon from the big dog Kromestar, an artist who’s been influencing bass music for quite some time now. With his album Colourful Vibrations gaining major attention earlier in 2011 after being released on Dubstar records, Kromestar has proven his diversity time and time again. From Badman VIP an absolute floor wrecker, to Disagree a soulful trumpet man ting, Kromestar’s covered everything in between and showed consistent quality throughout. This week sees the release of two tunes out on Dubstep For Deep Heads label entitled Bookey and Alone. Bookey is a wicked riddim incorporating video game like sounds with distorted basslines perfectly executed to make you stomp about. Alone is a more chilled back tune compared to Bookey, utilizing a marching band drum pattern and steady low end, this a tune for after work spliff time. Check both the tunes here and grab the record on promo!
Following that big release, Guido very recently put out the first release for label State of Joy. A bit different than what we’d usually cover but nonetheless, a super cool release. The first tune on the release, Micro X is the one that first caught our attention with that spot on Guido melody accented with the synth that Guido, Joker and other Brtistol based posse are known for. Here’s a cut of the tune, taken from a mix he did back March.
On the flip is a tune titled Vessel Dogs. Starting out with a large kick drum and mesmerizing string riff the tune fills in with soft snares and fluctuating purple sounding synths. This one is sick. You can see Guido’s musical talent imprinted throughout layers of piano, strings, and a well-positioned bassline. Make sure to listen all the way through as the tune is packed with variations.
This week sees the official release of Goth-Trad’s New Epoch EP. If you haven’t heard New Epoch, do so, it’s just a teaser of what’s to be found within this album. Also, Compa who hooked us up with that wicked mix back in November is dropping ‘Sentence/Beginning’ on Boka Records as BOKA038PT2. Be sure to get a copy of that as well. This is soundsystem music so be sure to crank up those subs. Oh and almost forgot to mention, the massive ‘Lightning/Overflow’ release by Antiserum and Ill-Esha dropped yesterday, so go bag it!
Here’s links to all these releases:
