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.
Kryptic Minds – Talisman
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.
Author Live At DMZ – Exodus

To the gods.
