Oiiiiiiiiiiiiii! What up everybody, hope all is well. Friday is finally here, so that means it’s time to whyle out! Cannot verbalize how excited I am to see Rustie at Smog Sunday’s this weekend. This young man has done some phenomenal things with his music. He is honestly one of the most forward-thinking producers out there at the moment, in my opinion. Add Rustie’s musical prowess into the equation with SMOG’s ability to throw some of the ILLEST parties that California has seen, and what do you have? A fucking amazing night, that’s what you have. I strongly urge you to make it out to this show if you can, it is sure to be one of the highlights for the summer. Sunday night, Dim Mak Studios, BE THERE. You can find more details about the show here.
So, as were about get into the weekend, which usually entails several forms of debauchery, I tried to pull together some tunes that are going to clear your mind, and then get your blood pumping hard.
I wanna start things off with a new bit from the ultimate badman, Swindle. As we’re anxiously awaiting his Deep Medi release to hit the shelves, he has blessed us with this soulful number in the meantime. This jam throws out some killer vibes. The vocals from Takura set the stage perfectly for Swindle’s bounce-infused purple dance number. A perfect way to clear all the negativity/stress that has accumulated over the week and get your mind on the right level for good times with the ones you love.
This next bit is comes from the hands of Icicle, and is an absolute roller. I have to say, I am extremely pleased with the direction Icicle has been taking his beats. The title suits the style, as he’s named it ‘Deep Tech’. Give it a listen and close your eyes as you’re transported to a dungeon in eastern europe with the deepest, most minimal beats playing. This is taken from the Rinse 19 mixed by Icicle.
Now I want to hype this new piece that Ghost Note just uploaded, titled ‘Transmission’. This one hits some low notes! Spacey percussion, techno-infused stabs, and an extremely powerful dub-esque bassline fill the airwaves as your body vibrates to the frequencies, warming your soul. Pardon the quality, it is only 128kbps, but it’s forthcoming on the S/T EP so be on the look. Apparently the second drop is absolutely mental, too! Can’t wait. Big up the NZ crew!
Up next is a tune from the industrial beat-smith, Distance. The track is called ‘Searching’ and it emits some truly evil vibes. Fading chants, rolling kick drums, and growling basslines take hold of the frequency spectrum and transcend your mind into visions of deep and dark silhouettes (or at least my mind).
Now, to finish off the weeks tunes I wanted to bring back an all-time classic from the Cali-grown innovator of west coast dubstep, Matty G. This tune, released back in 2009, will smash any dance floor up! Infusing the west coasts hip-hop funkiness into the UK’s bass-ridden brainchild (dubstep), results in nothing short of AMAZING. This man is a pure example of forward-thinking, and the fact that his tunes still sound so good stands a testament to that. Turn the subs up and get ready for the west coast to show you how we rock! 😉
That’s it fam, hope these tune will put you into those weekend vibes! We will see you next week, and if you’re going to Rustie, we will see you then! Big up the readers, much respect from the crew.
To the gods.
