DEAD AIR ELECTRO 47 (THIS IS JUNK) ((NOVEMBER 2016))

It’s always weirded me out when people refer to mainstream electro house as dirty. To me, just having some distortion on the main synth line doesn’t make a tune dirty. Not if the frequencies are all neatly separated, and everything is stale & perfect. That’s just a commercial product trying to parade itself as…

THROWBACK THURSDAYS: CUZ I’M A JUNGLE BROTHER

Normally, any REMIX relies, heavily, on the appeal of the original song, as far as it’s worth is concerned. It’s only on rare occasions that, through it’s re-imagining, a remix is able to insurmountably overshadow the original. In 1996, the DRUM N BASS world saw one such instance.

JUNGLE BROTHERS – JUNGLE BROTHER (TRUE…



THROWBACK THURSDAYS: BUZZ ON BABY SITTIN’
