Mix Mondays: Weight For The Week

What’s going down people.  Well, we’re back for another installment of Mix Mondays.  This week we have some amazing mixes that should keep your holiday spirit on a roll this week.  This weeks features are quite eclectic, as far as styles, and encompass a great part of the Bass music scene as it is today.  So, without further ado, let’s get this week started!

The first mix that we have for ya’ll today is one from two absolutely amazing artists hailing from the UK, Silkie & Swindle.  Silkie is a man who needs no introduction as he has been releasing some of the funkiest, purpliest, and jazziest Dubstep tunes that have been released.  Swindle is a man who has been releasing some really amazing tunes on Butterz Records.  He has a very unique style of productions, also on the Jazz/Soul side of things.  Put these two beasts together and you have yourself a straight-up banger of a mix.  The mix, done for Mixmag late last week, displays on-par mixing skills and an arsenal of purple sounds that would make the most Catholic of school girls skank out like a badman.  Take a listen and, if you haven’t already, visit the artist pages and show some support for these two.

Swindle & Silkie – Mixmag MOTW

 

The next mix that we have for you dirtbags is one from California local, Dubstep don, the almighty DJG.  This unbelievably talented man has received a lot of support and hype from BWS simply because he is one the best producers/DJ’s out there.  His complex interpretations of rave music are hard not to like.  His deep vibe productions and his hyped up mixing styles are truly unique and admirable.  One of the few US producers to gain acclaim worldwide, DJG sets an example for any up-and-coming artist.  This mix that he posted up late last night is a brilliant display of track selection, mixing techniques, and deep sounds.  Enjoy!

This third mix comes from the dungeons of Killawatt.  One of the heaviest producers of 2011, this man displays some of the deepest, darkest, and weighted sounds being released.  The mix, released to celebrate his addition to Archetype artists, starts off with an absolute BANG!, and continues to roll with some of the finest display of percussion that we’ve heard.  Killawatt is definitely somebody that you need to keep your eyes.  Each successive production of his is better than the last and he quite possibly could be one of the top producers of 2012.  Sit back and make sure your subs are turned up as you get rinsed out by Killawatt and his huge amount of unreleased dubs.

We have one last mix for you folks today.  Here at BWS we are all about promoting the local talents of our area, Southern California.  So today, we have a mix from a friend that we linked with on the GetDarker chat room sometime earlier this year.  This deep mix takes you on a meditative journey through sub-frequencies.  Some really good old and new tunes in this mix so take a listen and show some support to the man called Fifty Cal.

Alright everybody these mixes should definitely get you through the week.  Hope you enjoy the sounds.  Stay tuned this week as we will be announcing our choices for the top tunes of 2011 later this week!  Also we have something very special lined up for everybody once 2012 comes around so make sure you keep your eyes on this site.

 

Cheers everybody.

To the Gods.

DJG: The Bay Area Badman

Guten tag everybody!  Hope everybody is ready for another great weekend, Bassweight Society couldn’t be MORE ready.  As we ease you into the weekend we’re going to stuff some DJG down your throat, thanks to a request from a BWS family member.  With that said, we want everybody to know that although we have our own agenda, we are here for the fans.  If you have any requests on topics, artists, events, etc., lets us know and we will do our best to accompany them!  You can email us directly at bassweightsociety@gmail.com , or you can shout out on our Facebook Page.

So, today we’re highlighting Dean J. Grenier, aka DJG.  This man is, undoubtedly, one of the most successful and talented Dubstep producers hailing from the U.S.  His appearance into the scene in 2008, with the release of  ‘Shadow Skanking’/’Joyful Sound’, was one of extraordinary recognition.  Immediately receiving support from names like N-Type and Mary Anne Hobbes, Dean’s career as a producer took off very quickly.  As his releases piled up, so did the support from BIG name DJ’s/Producers like Skream, Pinch, Joe Nice, and Headhunter.  His ability to incorporate the deep aspects of dubstep into techy,  funky, and dance floor friendly tracks has gained him releases on lables like Wheel & Deal, Subway, and LoDubs.  Aside from his amazing production abilities, DJG is also an absolutely outstanding DJ, exhibiting an extreme amount of enthusiasm for the music he plays.  As put by Mary Anne Hobbes, his sets are “devastatingly good”.  Like a connaisseur of any sort, DJG understands the principles and theories of sound, which is made very clear in his mixing, as he obtains an almost flawless balance of the frequency spectrum.  It is producers such as DJG, alongside artists like Matty G, Roommate, Noah D, and Antiserum, to name a few, that keep the U.S on the forward-thinking map.  For that, Bassweight Society gives a formal salute to you, DJG.

If you haven’t heard DJG’s music, PLEASE lend an ear to this man’s amazing talents.  We guarantee that you will not be dissappointed.  Below, as always, you will find some music that Dean has put on his Souncloud page.  Also there are two links to the albums ‘Voids One’ and ‘Voids Two’, which is a compilation of DJG’s works ranging from 2007-2010.  He gave these out for free download sometime last year on his website, DJG Sounds.  Both of these albums display the amazing talents discussed above, each having their own underlying theme.  The first album is intended for the ravers, embodying “dark, energetic, and moody rave vibes”, while the second album was more of an exploration of sound, on a more “personal, lighter” level. Please download these and spread the sounds of DJG to those who have not heard them.

One Love To The Gods.
