Well after a week of voting in the poll for your favourite electronic music genre, the results were almost as I predicted with a 31% for house and 36% for dubstep, with garage and drum and bass coming in at 3rd equal with 6% each. However I wasn’t expecting drum and bass coming third as I’m pretty sure we’ve only posted one or two if any of the sort. A nice 13% for everything as well which is always good to see. Well I feel after that and a few comments I feel little sound-batch is in order. Here’s some house (including a bit of jackin and fidget) and a few heavy dubs from DZ, Excision and Datsik. A little less thought provoking than the stuff we’ve been posting recently but still killa dancefloor tracks.
HOUSE (fidget, jackin, funky, electro)
oliver twizt – gangsterdam (nom de strip remix)
supra 1 – still believe ft. amy douglas (l-vis 1990 remix dub)
hijack – nuts (jeff doubleu remix)
primary 1 – princess (mj cole remix)
cold blank – the flying cat (the bulgarian remix)
will bailey – the dutty clem (tom eq’s speaker freaker remix)
DUBSTEP (heavy shit)
apex – nowhere to run (datsik & excision remix)
kelly dean & steady – teflon ft. kemst (datsik & excision remix)
dz & excision – round 2
AND THIS MAY BE THE LAST TIME I USE ZIPPYSHARE! SUCK MY BALLS!

ok this has been a long absence from writing. laziness if you ask me. there’s lots of house about as a consequence, not such a bad thing but i’ve got here a tasty bag of goodies new and old. this one has been brewing for a while……
JOKER what a big name at the moment, i reckon he’s a very talented boy and i hope there’s big things waiting for him. these two slightly older tunes of his are classic examples of his liquid funk synths, pure purple as the man himself may say.
and if you’re a fan of joker’s sound TERROR DANJAH is your man. having just released a collection of his instrumentals, remixes and tracks on planet mu records called GREMLINZ, he’s just beginning to get the recognition he deserves. he is considered one of the finest grime producers ever if not the best by the grime cognoscenti, originally part of the nasty crew and then aftershock, terror has released countless 12″s and remixes as well as several mixtapes. if you want to hear a precursor to joker, and the new bristol producers, here it is.
untold and the whole hemlock label have been really amazing me with untold’s own, ‘gonna work out fine’ EP making for cracking listening. however, it is fantastic mr JAMES BLAKE’s remix of stop what you’re doing by untold which is the finest. one of the best tunes of the year in my opinion.
having recently visited the infamous SUBDUB in leeds for shackleton, distance, peverelist and scuba on saturday i’ve been listening to JOY ORBISON a lot, who seemed to be artist of choice for those boys in leeds. here’s hyph mngo as a taster but i emplore you to have a look around for some of his other releases, GOLD.
of course we do have some of conventional dubstep hiding around here. SKREAM is givng away one of his tracks, what did he say, to promote the WHY NOT? boxing day d&b and dubstep bonanza at the ministry of sound. it looks nuts if you ask me, i’ll still be at the leftovers on boxing day…..
belgium is a place for dubstep. that was something obvious at this year’s DOUR festival where some belgians nearly shit their pants over joker, n-type and especially rusko. wow what a festival. but the man in focus is GANJA WHITE NIGHT. he’s been cracking out tune after tune that really hit the spot. a man to follow, a man to trust. gayfish is pretty purple growler, watch out.
now here to finish off is the real mixed bucket. machester local MRK 1 puts a brilliant spin on a big norrisman tune, PRIMARY 1 put together an old but super-varied mixtape, interwoven with kubrick samples and, from the vault, the kings of funk BROTHERS JOHNSON deliver probably one of the finest songs ever. bye.

Afrojack is a tribal house producer from Holland. We loved his anthem which is his remix of ‘Moombah’ by Silvio Ecomo and Chuckie. Check out some of his other bongo filled syncopated and bleepy synth house.
Swedish funky house producer Style Of Eye has created some very interesting pieces of dance music. Loving his track ‘Grounded’ with some rather strange male vocals then cleaned up with some beautiful Arabic style vocals.
I’m loving Douster’s quirky bleepy afrohouse. Here’s two remixes by the man himself both of which seep originallity and hold a certain look to the future.
AAAHHHHH! Fucking love this tune. An absolute anthem. Surely any lover of bangers will love this?! Also check out Sharklayer’s summer mix, even though summer’s almost over 😦
