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.

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

Heat, Heat, And More Heat.

Oi oi oi!  For those of you that tend to live with your heads in the sand, there has been some intense shit going down with the SOPA/PIPA protests in the past couple of days.  The site Megaupload has been shut down and owners are now being accused of soliciting $500 million dollars in lost revenue for copyright holders.  There are 7 people being charged in this case, 4 of which were arrested today in New Zealand.  The US extracted Dutch citizens from New Zealand for copyright laws, while 3 owners are still on the loose.  Yes, you read that right, the US extracted Dutch citizens from New Zealand for infringing on copyright laws.  Kinda scary to think what will be next.   Things are really starting to get out of hand, so if you haven’t signed the petition, called your local Senator, and done everything else that you can do, PLEASE DO IT!!  There is a ribbon on the top right of this page, you can click that and sign the petition/get further information.

Today we have a bunch of goodies for everyones ears.  We have a couple mixes, a couple fresh tunes, and some very crucial release information.

First piece that we want to look at is an amazing new tune from the badman duo, Kryptic Minds.  First heard this tune back on FACT Mix 241 that Kryptic Minds did, and now it’s finally going to see a release on Tectonic!  This tune is an absolute sub-heavy anthem.  These guys have been picking up an incredible amount on momentum the past couple of years and they continue to exhibit some of the most balanced/clean mixdowns while pumping out some of the most powerful sub-frequencies of any producer.  Enjoy heat #1.

Next sound we have for you is a mix built by TMSV.  This is 40 minutes of STRICTLY BUSINESS!  One of the better mixes we have heard lately, filled with such a large amount of top-notch productions.  Starting off real nice, the DJ Madd remix of Alone in the Darkness sets the tone heavy and deep.  He then progresses into a plethora of his personal productions, showing everybody why he in among the most high level of producers.  Setting the vibe real nice for everybody that’s getting to see him play at Dubtactics XL!  Slump to heat #2.  P.s. if you want to download the mix, grab it right here.

The next tune has probably already been seen by everybody being blasted all over Rinse by Youngsta, but it’s just too good to not post up.  Another absolute production from the earthquake-wrestling boys from down under, Truth.  The track, titled ‘All Over’, is destined to wreck dance floors for the next few months, NO DOUBT!  The clip we have is one taken off of Youngsta’s show but be on the lookout for this one because it’s just plain old MASSIVE mates!

Truth – All Over

The last piece that we are going to leave you with today/tonight/whatever time it is you read this, is a live set that Author played at Exodus during a DMZ night.  The entire 44 minutes is pure bliss.  The musical ability that is alive when Jack Sparrow and Ruckspin get together is so inspiring, and their live sets are no different.  The day that these guys make it over to the US will be one of the happiest days for us here at BWS.  The emotion, soul, funk, and groove that go into their productions is unmatched and beyond unique.  The next couple years are going to hold some really amazing things for these guys, on an individual level as well as the entity, Author, that they comprise.  This is just PURE VIBES, straight feel-good music, life layed out in notes.  Take a trip.

Alright people, enjoy!  Don’t forget to protect your individual freedoms and continue to protest the SOPA/PIPA acts that will be voted on January 24th, 2012!  Much love and respect from the crew!

Rewind Wednesday: Where Dat’ Weight From?

Boh! Boh! Boh!  Friends, family, rando’s, we bid you welcome to our Wednesday rewind.  Today, as always, we have some great classic tunes to showcase.

The first track for today is one produced by the badman Soloman Rose, aka ‘Silkie‘.  The track is titled ‘Dub Breaks’.  Among the first characteristics you will notice in this tune are the very soothing reggae stabs along with a killer break-style drum sequence, as eluded by the track name.  With a slow and simple start, the tune leads to a drop that will put your dancing shoes on for you.  Silkie has been laying out some of the cleanest mix-downs since 2003 and this one is a perfect example.  Have a listen.

Second tune for this weeks rewind session is the infamous ‘War Dub’, produced by ‘Pinch & P.Dutty’.  The eerie intro, filled with truly deep and dark vibes, is complimented by one of the sickest drops to this day.  With that said, once the second drop comes the most pure forms of madness will rush through your blood giving you no choice but to commence brukking out to the hardest of your ability.  Released on Pinch’s label, Tectonic, in 2005 this track will forever rest as one of the hardest tunes of all time.

Third track of the day comes from a producer who is too often overlooked, the man ‘Quest‘.  One of Deep Medi Musiks’ finest talents, and owner of some of the most beautiful tracks in the 140 arena, Quest is a man who is the epitome of the term ‘underground’.  This track, titled ‘Eden’, was released back in 2008 and sends out some of the most relaxed and translucent vibes.  The diminishing presence of horns combined with island-style strings really have to ability to take your mind to another plain of conciousness.  For all the heads, we know you know about Quest.  But, for those of you that haven’t heard his sounds, PLEASE go out and show some support to this man.  Buy his music, like his pages, tell your friends, do whatever you need to do.  Just DO IT.  Enjoy.

Quest – Eden (2008/Deep Medi Musik)

Today we are going to send you off with a tune written by the highest ranking spirit in Dubstep, ‘Mala‘.  Without a doubt one of the most influential artists, he has been very selectively releasing tunes since the inception of the genre.  Titled ‘Lean Forward’, this tune really exhibits the journey the each of Mala’s productions take the listener on.  Always a firm believer in the meditative power of music, Mala constantly implements this belief into his tunes.  Released in 2007 on Deep Medi Musik, this tune will always hit home for us.

Alright, so we hope you all enjoyed today’s content.  Make sure you stop by BWS on Friday as we will be releasing our top tunes of 2011.  There is sure to be some bangers highlighted!

To the Gods.
