Sleeper & Kryptic Minds – ‘Axis Shift/Solarized Formation’ [OSMUK33]

OSMUK033_LABELS.indd

.

“In a convergence of Osiris Music’s heavyweights, Kryptic Minds and Sleeper have built their first full collaborative release together; the pulsating peak-time pressure of Axis Shift backed with the heaving sub-frequency movements of Solarized Formation. Both tracks hit brutally hard and low in the dance, featuring palettes of nightmarish industrial sounds laid over intricate techno/ dubstep fused rhythms. Axis Shift is an amalgamation of flecked reese synths, paranoid atmospheres and plunging basslines that anchor the track deep beneath disorienting arrays of taut percussion. It’s brisk, fluid flow is contrasted by the experimental rhythmic arrangements of Solarized Formation on the flip, centred around pounding kick drum trios, toughened slabs of sub-bass and minimal drum incisions; a unique and highly creative  piece 140bpm music to bang soundsystems differently.”

Ipman – ‘Persistent Dread/Signal Motion’ [OSMUK032]

Osiris Musik

“Ipman has established himself as a force to be reckoned with over the last couple of years, bringing a lethal combination of unfaltering creative freshness and no-nonsense soundsystem pressure to the table. His music is held in high regard by Kryptic Minds, and this August sees them welcome Ipman to the Osiris Music UK crew to drop two blackened cuts of bruising tech-edged weaponry for the imprint’s 32nd release. The results are unreservedly dark and punishing, with ‘Persistent Dread’ driven by hypnotising sub bass body-blows that punch beneath a jagged swell of menacing sound design and mazing glitch melodies. The flip features the fierce rolling beats of ‘Signal Motion’, a lurching stomper that hits hard with chest-caving intent; deft snarls of mechanised snyths and titanium-grade kicks accent waves of deep dread frequency. A monstrous debut Osiris 12 from Ipman”

Unwind

Sup fam.  Can’t believe Wednesday’s almost over.  Life gets busy between work, music, and friends, and weeks seem to fly by.  One constant throughout it all is the relief you can find kicking back and listening to some new choons.  We got four gems for you today.  The first few are lurkers, real deep and proper, soundsystem tunes.  The last one is a completely different vibe, less dark, hopefully sending you out with some good vibes.

First one is from a producer named Murdok featuring JBZ.  I really like the intro as it builds up into a serious roller.

Next one is from OG’s Kryptic Minds.  As always these guys deliver maximum bassweight.  The tune titled The Talisman is set to come out on Tectonic Plates Vol. 3 on March 19.  Keep your ears ready for this compilation as it includes tracks from artists such as Tunnidge & Goth Trad.  Follow the link to Tectonic’s website where you can view the full tracklist.

Tectonic Plates Volume 3

The next tune comes from Gemmy titled Freq Factory.  Packed full of punchy bass and hard snapping snares this one will definitely hit your speaker box hard.

Last up we have a tune from a British producer named Calski.  I really like the vibes of this tune.  Not a party tune, no major bassweight element, but the feel of it is nice.

That’s a wrap.  Pay it forward when you can.

Big up

John Matrix: The Pentinent Man EP (INNA008)

What up people.  Eluded by the title, today, we have a look into Inna Riddim’s newest addition to the roster, John Matrix.  The Pentiment Man EP will hit the stores today, February 10, so make sure to snag your copy of it!  Hailing from Manchester, Matrix brings heavy interpretations of the dark, minimalist styles within dubstep.   Having a well-rooted involvement in the Manchester scene with things like his earlier days on Unity Radio and his current residency with the Deadbeats Collective, Matrix is a well-seasoned contender.  He has dabbled in producing a plethera of styles within the bass scene which has given him the ability to be very versatile with his incorporation of influences.  This EP is filled with rolling low-end frequencies, shattering snare hits, and killer soundscapes.  Setting the mark as Inna Riddims 8th release (INNA008), Matrix exhibits a very complimenting style to the labels vibe.  ‘Ain’t Changing’ starts things off.  Coming at you right from the beginning with an energetic vocal sample that prefaces the tunes presence.  Nothing but murking about with this one.  ‘Pentinent Man’ follows ‘Ain’t Changing’, and is a very spacious production.  Brings you back a few years, no doubt.  The alternating snares add a really sick effect, too.  The 3rd tune, ‘Hunter’, brings out more of a extraterrestrial vibe with it.  Swaying synths, pumping sub hits, and half-step stomps, another classic styled production!  Matrix finished his release off with the tune ‘Blissfully Unaware’.  This tune definitely sits apart from the rest of the EP.  A much more upbeat vibe with with higher levels of the frequency spectrum being utilized.  Honestly, in my opinion, this tune gives me the same vibes as Kryptic Minds remix of DJ Madd’s ‘Dub Marine’.  Big ups on this one!

Below you will find the preview of the Pentiment Man EP.  You can pick this up at any of the major sites like Juno, Beatport, and Itunes.  Check out the Inna Riddim store for purchase too!    He also built a promo mix for this release, composed primarily of his own productions.  The mix is available for download off of the Inna Riddim website so if you’re vibin’, then snag it on up!  You can find the mix’s tracklist/download link below.  If you want to check out press release put out by the label, check it here.
