DEAD AIR BASS 010 (BEST OF 2013!!!) ((JANUARY 2014))

Take an hour out of you New Year’s Day to join me in running down THE best in BASS music from the year, 2013. At least we’ll have some killer tunes to pump while we nurse our hangovers, and we won’t have to suffer alone.

NO INVADING S3RL’S SPAC3

It was a few years ago, now, that I had the pleasure of meeting famed HHC producer, S3RL. Like literally every other Australian I’ve ever met, he was friendly, polite, and knew how to party hard!

S3RL

He’s most commonly known for his breakthrough hit, PRETTY RAVE GIRL, but S3rl is so much more than…

NOTHING BLACK & WHITE ABOUT PROMOTION IN THE UK RAVE SCENE

It’s amazing how the UK RAVE scene manages to continue functioning without adopting the established industry conventions of EDM. If an artist launched a new side project without promo pics, a bio, press releases, and pages on all the popular social mediums, I’d be inclined to say “that’s never gonna work”. It would seem that…

DEAD FRIDAYS: BASSTOBER

There’s something about October that invokes my love of BASS music. Maybe the falling leaves, darker evenings, and cooling weather say it’s time to get low down n dirty. Where summer is more about epic, pretty build ups, fall brings forth a craving for big, heavy drops. Maybe it’s just because I love Bass, and…

ZOMBIE DISCO

ZOMBIES and DISCO are 2 of my favourite things, so my answer was already yes, when I was asked to perform at this event, to kick off HALLOWEEN SEASON 2013, in my home town. When I saw the lineup, my answer turned into a “hell yes”!

DEAD FRIDAYS: 2 AMAZING THINGS ABOUT ELECTRO HOUSE

2 very interesting characteristics about ELECTRO HOUSE: The name covers such an incredibly wide variety of different sounds, all loosely lumped together into one massive umbrella genre. Also that, from its beginnings, Electro House is a truly global phenomenon. Below are 5 tracks, from Australia, LA, Pittsburgh, Italy, and the UK, respectively, each varying greatly…



HEADUCATION: THE GROUP THAT PUT RAVE MUSIC WAY IN OUR BRAINS

What would BREAKS sound like today, if SL2 had never been formed? For that matter, would DRUM N BASS or HARDCORE have happened at all??? If you’ve ever enjoyed any of these genres, you owe a “thank you” to SLIPMATT & LIME.

SL2

They didn’t invent a genre. What they…



A HAPPY HARDCORE PRODUCER FROM SWEDEN?!?!

Every now and again, I need to do some reminiscing and go back to my HARDCORE roots. But this aint no throwback jam!

 

PHENEX

A HAPPY HARDCORE producer from Sweden?!?! I think that’s the initial response that compels people to check out the music of PHENEX. He began producing in…
