Truth – ‘Iron Lung/Medusa’ [NMN007]


EZ fam’, hope you’ve all been well since the last time I checked in here!  I’ve got a rather large release to highlight today, coming from the New Moon Recordings imprint based out of Poland.  The label has been putting out phenomenal music since it’s inception towards the latter part of 2010; signing artists like Killawatt & Thelem, Biome, Perverse, and Phaeleh.  Their seventh release is in the form of a 12″ single from the globally acclaimed duo – Truth.  I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, these two have perfectly embodied, in my mind, how to go about taking an underground sound and creating a seismic commotion within the mainstream market.  With recent endeavors ranging from launching a new label – Defy Recordings, covering two part of the globe at any given time, launching a club monthly here in the Golden State (Deep, Dark, & Dangerous in San Francisco, CA), and putting out a steady string of releases, it is truly inspiring to see what the team’s evolution has accomplished thus far.

Truth’s first release for 2013 finds itself lurking among the outermost fringes of sanity, plunging through sadistic atmospheres that find themselves engulfed with spacious drum grooves and tectonic sub-pressure.  ‘Iron Lung’ sees the duo incorporate their notorious affinity to vocal progressions into a seemingly void realm of swinging half-step percussion and sinister horns.  ‘Medusa’ pulls out a much more desolate aesthetic than the former, with drawn out pads, pulverant bass lines, and elusive atmospheric scores that have a dissociative effect on the mind.  The power of the sub built for this beat is genuinely one of the most momentous I’ve heard, I can only imagine the feeling running through my flesh when standing in front of a top-notch club system.  This track is a perpetual state of falling, through a dissonant abyss of sound design.


The release is set to drop Monday, March 25th, and will be available at all major record retailers, both physical and digital.  Links below.






I’ll catch you next time, hope you enjoy the sounds!

One love.

Drummed Out: Quantum Soul, Biome, Benton, & TMSV

Gwwwwaaaarnnn get up now!  What’s good folks…Hope everybody is doing well on this glorious day!  We gotta’ bunch of freshies for your ears today, encompassing a vast spectrum of style.  Hope you enjoy 🙂

I wanted to start things off with a proper dub-styled jam from the one and only TMSV.  This guy makes some of the cleanest sub-bass in the game.  The tune, ‘Attention’, comes in nice and sends some extremely positive vibrations through your mind and soul.  Endless delays, climbing basslines, dubbed out vocals, the whole-nine yards with this one.  I would really like to see this get a release!  On a side note, I am really feeling these dub-wise tunes that TMSV has been writing on the late.  Stoked to hear more of it!

TMSV – Attention


This next bit is moving back towards the darker side of the spectrum.  Biome has seriously been on such a massive run lately with amount of top-notch tunes he has been putting out.  ‘Persepolis’ on Macabre Unit Vinyl, ‘The Raven’/’Hybrid’ Remix on Osiris, and his 3 track release on the Deep Heads label.  Like I said, serious business this guy.  This track was put up on the Deep Heads soundcloud page earlier today and is another percussion flooded roller from the badman.  Subs up, eyes down for this one.

Biome – The Road


Moving straight into the depths of the spectrum now with this preview of Benton’s ‘Defect Mind’, forthcoming on his Wheel & Deal album ‘Reflections’.  Benton is a producer who has a sound distinct to only himself, in my opinion.  The dark and sinister vocal clips, the slumping bass lines, and fine-tuned atmospherics are always present inna’ production with this guy.  Put your ouija board away before you press play on this one ;).

Benton – Defect Mind (Forthcoming Wheel & Deal)


I wanted save this next tune for last because I believe it will send everybody off with a BANG!  Coming from the hands of our friend Quantum Soul is a remix done for SideProjekt’s tune ‘Temple’.  An absolute sub workout, this one!  Such an immense variety of sounds intricately placed together to create the massive amount of energy that this tune puts out.  Some SEEEERRIOUS soundsystem music!  Clear some space for the skankin’ that will undoubtedly occur once you press play.


BLESS!  Hope you are all diggin’ the tunes for today.  Support the artists by buying their music and seeing them spin when they come to your town!  It’s a rough lifestyle for most of our favorite artists (obviously not the large names) so don’t make it any rougher on them by jacking the product of their countless hours in the studio.  Fo’ real do’.  We’ll catch you next time.

To the gods.
