Mix Mondays: Weight For The Week

What up everybody!  We hope ya’ll had a great weekend, we most certainly did.  BWS co-founder, Shice, tore up the streets of Santa Barbara at the Santa Babylon party featuring headliner Esh-One from New Mexico.  Always a good time with the Santa Babylon boys!

We’re back with another installment of Mix Monday, and we, as always, have some heaters for your ears.

The first mix that we have for everybody is one built by Birmingham based producer/DJ, ENIGMA.  This mix, done for the Dubheadz crew, is jam-packed with HUGE tunes.  Sub-frequencies emitting at the most powerful level, mixing skills on point, and a track selection of the highest caliber, this mix will set your head straight.  Starting things off with one of his own productions, titled ‘Lights Out’, you will be instantly hooked by the lurky sounds of this mix.  Starting off with the melodic, atomospheric bass music that ENIGMA does so well, the mix slowly rises to it’s peak, causing panic on the dance.  Being a seasoned musician since the age of 5, ENIGMA is no stranger to finding a proper balance within his sounds, as shown in his productions and mixes.  So, lend an ear and enjoy!

ENIGMA DUBZ – ‘Mix for Dubheadz’

The next mix that we have for you is one done by BWS founder, Kinman.  This all-vinyl mix showcases some of the largest tunes produced in 2011.  Starting off with ‘Celestial Dub’, a tune produced by Coki, the mix progresses into the soulful productions of Antiserum, Ill-Esha, and Author, then taking off into a realm of mad percussion and chestplate-shaking frequencies.  So many HUGE double-drops lined up in this one.  Sit back, light one up, and enjoy the deep sounds of Killawatt, Benton, DJ MADD, District, Headhunter, and many more.  Nuff’ said!

Kinman – Bassweight Sessions Volume 2 (ALL-VINYL)

The last mix that we have for you, Jah’s children, is one done by the recently added BWS artist, Lowkey.  Long-time Bass enthusiast, Lowkey sets the vibe right with some of the most purple sounding dance floor rhythms that are available at the moment.  Featuring artists such as Joker, Kavsrave, Icicle, and Distance, this is nothing short of a heavyweight anthem.  An entry in a recent mixtape competition, the mix displays a keen ear, seasoned mixing skills, and an overall good vibe.  Take a listen and show some love to Lowkey.

Lowkey – Jah Know

That’s the word this week, as far as mixes.  Again, in case you forgot, we will now be featuring a post  everyday, Monday – Friday.  Be sure to check in tomorrow as we have a very special highlight on 140 Jungle.

Enjoy the sounds.

To the Gods.

F*ck Yeah Friday: Now Gimme’ Some Cornbread!

What’s good party people! So, the first weekend of the new year, 2012, has arrived. How are you guys going to start the year off? Hopefully within the answer to that question lies layers upon layers of low-end frequencies, nudity, consumption of alcohol, and, of course, spliffs. Pretty much the most crucial components to any weekend for us here at BWS. We hope that all of you had a great NYE, now it’s time to get rollin’ into 2012.

We have some really big plans for BWS this upcoming year, it’s going to be very exciting. We are going to be bringing in a lot of top-notch artists to all of our family that is located in Southern California so, those of you this is applicable to, make sure you keep your eyes on this page in addition to our Facebook page: Bassweight Society. Aside from the talent we will be bringing in, there will also be some re-vamping of our website. Starting next week there will be a post up each day Monday through Friday, so hopefully the two extra days of content will aid the suppression of ya’lls bass addiction. There are many more changes that will be happening this year, many which cannot be disclosed at the moment, so we hope everybody is ready for a sick year!

Now, since all of the formalities are out of the way, let’s get busy.

Today is going to be an eclectic one, as far as the music featured. We have a few songs that we felt needed to be highlighted, and one of them even has a FREE download accompanied with it!

The first tune that we have for you is one done by previously featured artist, Compa. Being nominated in the Dubstepforum awards as ‘Best New Producer’, this man is going to be blowing people away all year long. This tune was featured in Compa’s EXCLUSIVE Bassweight Society mix done back in November, and is titled ‘Signals’. This one is an absolute necessity to any deep-heads collection. This spacey track is most definitely what would be playing prior to stepping into a wormhole through space. It’s reverb-filled snare drums, sweeping risers, and astranged-sounding shakers all leave you in some sort of catatonic state of bewilderment. This one is a free download, so make sure you click that download link after listening. Don’t be afraid to give a shout out to Compa for this one either. Big ups Compa, much respect from us here at BWS.

Compa – Signals

The next track that we have you people is one produced by the almighty himself, Skream. He released word about this production around Christmas time stating it was “like Xmas Day Swagger’s ugly brother”. An absolute old-school jam this one is. The wobble on this tune is so clean and so well-executed it’s no wonder Skream is, without doubt, one of the most prolific artists in the history of Dubstep. Swag out with this track folks! BOOM.

Skream – Scrooge’s Revenge

Third on deck we have a tune from, yet again, Killawatt. Another contender in the ‘Best New Producer’ category in the Dubstepforum awards, Killawatt has one of the most unique and amazing styles we have seen lately. His ability to master any and all types of percussion remain no secret as his songs are layered with the most intricate sequences. The tune that we have you today, titled ‘Numb’, is one of the sickest tracks I (Kinman) have heard the past couple of months. The track is just, so, ….. COMPLETE. I don’t know how else to describe it. I listen to this song and feel nothing but satisfaction the entire time. Make sure that you have your subs turned up for this one, because it is truly one of the heaviest tracks. Massive outs to Killawatt for this all-time production. Hopefully we will be seeing a release sometime soon!

Killawatt – Numb

The final track that we have for ya’ll today is one from some of the heaviest sub-frequency producers out there, Subreachers. This one, despite it’s title, is filled with melody and soul. A real nice way to end any night, or start one for that matter. The catchy vocal sample immediately hooks you while the ravey-stabs and groovy string-riff immerse your mind and soul with nothing but straight VIBES! If you haven’t heard of these guys, you NEED to get on their level. Absolute DON-like material right here. Big up to the Subreachers! P.s. THIS ONE IS FREE TOO! Check the description for the DL link.

Subreachers – Bastards

.

Alright everybody that’s the word for today. We hope you enjoy the sounds and free downloads if you haven’t already copped them for yourself. Have a great weekend people! Let your mind be the guide.

To the Gods.

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!

DJG – Favorites of 2011 Mix

 

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.

Killawatt – Archetype Artist Promo Mix

 

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.

Fifty Cal – Bass Music

 

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.

Weight Watch Wednesday

Easy everybody.  It’s already halfway through the week!  Time to celebrate hump day with some proper sounding bassweight.  Today, as always, we are featuring some absolutely amazing tunes that we are sure you will enjoy.  There are so many unreal tracks being released right now that it would be impossible to highlight them all so we are just going to bring forth a few that stand out the most to us.

The first track is due out for release on December 19, available through Surus first.  This tune is an absolute BADMAN riddim’!  Personally we have never heard anything from either of these two producers, call us lame, but we can guarantee that we will definitely be on top of their releases from here on out.  Dub Phizix and Skeptical absolutely smashed the production on this one.  To top off, the badass MC, Skeptical, spits some venomous bars to add some real vibes.  Getting a release on Exit Records, which is a label run by D-Bridge, this tune has been getting relentless amounts of hype on the web, and rightfully so!  Don’t forget the day that this track comes out!!!  Test press’ went on sale early yesterday and were instantly sold out, we imagine the same story will follow for the official release.  Massive out to the boys that made this tune, it’s straight up business.

Dub Phizix & Skeptical ft. Strategy – Marka

 

The next release that we have for you was a recent release on Black Box’s ‘XXX’ special edition series.  The original track is one done by Killawatt and is titled ‘Sidewinder’.  This is yet another tune that Killawatt has produced in the finest of fashions.  This bassweight roller gets the night started off real proper by easing you into a head nodding frenzy, and subsequently throwing some mysterious vocal cuts that compliment the soundscape quite nicely.  The flip of this release is a remix that Ipman composed and is made for the dancefloor.  The jungle-vibed break pattern of the drums incite flashbacks to our days of being strict junglists.  Have a listen to both of these and don’t forget to purchase your copies either!!!

Killawatt – Sidewinder

Killawatt – Sidewinder (Ipman Remix)

 

The next release that we have for everybody is one from the likes of TMSV, and just received a release on Black Box’s side label, Box Clever.  The ‘A’ side, titled ‘Myth’, emits a truly tribal vibe while sending the listener through different low-end paths of thought.  The bongos on this track keep the shuffle alive while keeping it nice and slow.  The flip of this release, ‘Flow’, is another gem that TMSV can throw under the belt.  This track starts off with vibes as the dark and ominous vocal sample immediately hooks you in.  From there this track really takes form and offers a perfect balance of frequencies.

TMSV – Myth

 

TMSV – Flow

 

That’s it for today everybody.  As always, we hope you enjoy the sounds!  Spread the love to your friends and family, everybody deserves some proper bassweight in their life :).

 

One love.

Mix Mondays: Weight For The Week

Hello fam!  Welcome to a new feature we plan on keeping around at Bassweight Society, ‘Mix Mondays’.  As you all know, mixes are a great way to hear new dubs and generally skank the f*ck out.  This Monday we have three featured mixes to add some low-end to your week as you transition out of the weekend.

Our first mix comes from Evergreen Forest Records and previously featured artist, Marchmellow.  This mix goes in right from the start with a big forthcoming Marchmellow track and continues on heavy, ending with some very nice Evergreen forthcomings and Marchmellow dubs.  Check out the tracklist on Soundcloud and find some new favorites!

Marchmellow – Evergreen Forest Records Mix


California based artist, Roommate, provides us with our second mix, taken from his Soundcloud page.  Roommate has been smashing it on the West Coast and throughout the U.S., all while releasing a wide variety of Bassweight approved dubs.  This mix showcases just that, as Roomates ability to create great Reggae influenced jams and Dubstep bangers is seen.  Wih 16 ORIGINAL tracks, this mix is highly recommended to kick off any day as its jah-lectrified sounds will surely diminish any feelings of angst or anxiety towards the week.  The mix puts the “Dub” into “Dubstep”.

Roommate – Mix For Jamaica

.

Monday’s final mix comes from Bassweight Society’s own, Kinman.  Like the above mixes, a subwoofer is highly recommended with this one.  Kinman shows his love for the deeper sounds of Dubstep by bringing 40 minutes of non-stop DARKNESS.  Showcasing tunes from the likes of Killawatt, Thelem, Truth, and Matt-U, to name a few, this mix vibes for all the deep heads.

Kinman – Bassweight Sessions Volume 1

.

Now that you’re busy listening, we hope you can find some new artists and get inspired.  If you still need to get your mix fix, check out last weeks post with an exclusive all vinyl set for BWS from upcoming artist, Compa.  This mix is, truly, not to be missed.
