Greetings and salutations, dead kids. It is I, your intrepid sometimes blogger, DJ Mannik. I have something special ALMOST READY for you, but not quite, so in the meantime have these somewhat randomly selected tunes.

Clayfacer: Reaching New Heights by Tamerax

Happy leap year everyone! I’m starting this year off by continuing with my series on amazing Canadian hard dance producers.   This time around we have another HUGE up-and-coming talent that is making a giant splash on the international stage. From Lethbridge, Alberta comes another rising Canadian star: Clayfacer!

Now,…



DEAD FRIDAY: BASS GONE GLOBAL

This week, 4 low end heavy hitters that come from the combined efforts of artists from different ends of the earth, OR from artists exploring the music of cultures other than their own. You get me?

 

MUNCHI – SHOTTAS (ALEXIS K DUB)

HEADUCATION: WHERE WOULD HIP-HOP BE WITHOUT BLONDIE???

I’m just gonna start off with this…

 

Needless to say, the early 80′s was a very strange time, but it did see some amazing music. One such song is BLONDIE’s RAPTURE.

It’s a very unique and complex blend of NEW WAVE. DISCO, JAZZ, POP, & HIP-HOP. While I’m sure…



MOOMBAHCORE TO SHAKE THE ROOM

It’s my favourite time. MOOMBAH-time!!!

MARK INSTINCT

This Calgary native is one of the many young producers proving that CANADIANS do BASS MUSIC bigger and better than anyone. He started out, several years ago, as a DRUM N BASS DJ, but it was the sounds of DUBSTEP that…



SWEEKUH PROMISED ME A RAD MASHUP

In this post, my love of a well executed MASHUP wins over my distaste for Deadmau5.

STATIK SELEKTAH FINDS A FRIEND IN THE NEW YORK CITY

This post may shock some readers that are familiar with the majority of dancey tracks found within the HIP-HOP category of DKGL.

STATIK SELEKTAH

It’s been a long time since I purchased an entire album by a Hip-Hop artist (or anyone for that matter). As I listened through…



GUESS WHO'S ENJOYING HIS MONSTER MUNCH?

I’m a big supporter of UK HARDCORE that manages to push boundaries forward by presenting an original spin on a genre that is, in majority, unimaginative recycling of the mundane and irrelevent. PEAKS & PINNACLE are doing just that.

PEAKS & PINNACLE

2 UK DJ/Producers that team…
