nian dub, dark and dubby dnb

UK-based collective Nian Dub is making some really cool dark and dubby drum’n’bass on EXE project.
I ran into them on Soundcloud and I recommend checkout out the EXE podcast Transmission 002 with Nian Dub and Semiotix linked below. There’s a bit of banter and chatting in there, but the tunes in between are awesome and you learn a thing or two about the lads.
If you like it without chatting there’s the EXE M004 mix featuring much of their music as well.

More cool stuff on the EXE project stream as well like an old favorite Aaron Spectre and Gore tech. Check it *does some of those wicked streetwise finger gesture shizzle and all*

music of 2015

the audience is shaking ( #CC )Here’s some music I liked in 2015 that I either talked about before or forgot to mention so far. I get stuff emailed to me, listen to it and then forget to write about it sometimes. Dang.

So I’ll mix those in here so they get their mention at last.

Drum’n’bass

Ah, the good old dnb. If you haven’t already checked out the weekly Noisia Radio podcasts on Soundcloud it’s about time you did. You’ll hear new tracks, old ones and get a lot of inspiration on what tracks you can spend that New Years money on.

Another place to check for some fresh, dark drum’n’bass is Syk2ne’s Bandcamp or Soundcloud page. Lot’s of wicked EP’s right there and not strictly dnb either. It easily crosses over into the next category…

Breakcore

Here we have Ruby my Dear of course with his latest Balloon album. Then there’s Venetian Snares, as always, who not only released Your Face this year but also put up the awesome Thank Your For Your Consideration after fans stepped up when Snares hit a rough patch and could use some extra cash. Sissy Growl and Burgershot are my favorite tracks of 2015 for sure.

Mo breackore? Aww yiss. How about YabaiKore! from the Japanese breakcore collective the Ragga Terror Front. Some really wicked sick stuff in there. Totally worth a listen.

Hardcore techno

Here I have 2 podcasts/radio shows to point out, full of all the hardcore goodness you’d want. First there’s the PRSPCT Recordings radio episodes on Soundcloud. Awesome guests, “great” interviews and quite some nonsense in there. And smashing kicks of course.
We can’t leave without mentioning The Outside Agency podcasts as well. Not quite as frequent but that just makes them all the better.

Hope you find your type of beats and bass in here.
Enjoy the holidays, have a happy NY and see you back in 2016!

noisia does radio and it’s awesome

Oh yessss. The Dutch lads from Noisia are doing their own weekly Noisia Radio show of sorts and they are putting it on Soundcloud for free streaming and download. As you can expect from these guys it’s stuffed with great drum’n’bass, bass music, dubstep, electro, techno, game music… you name it (no not trance of course, who would do that anyway).

In the show they play old stuff, new stuff and basically all sorts of stuff they like. The mix of different styles makes it a sweet listen while you’re working or commuting, or whatever. It’s great to find out about some new tracks, links to free tracks from other producers on Soundcloud etc.

They are at episode 6 already by now, so get over there before you’re way behind on this like the uncool kids!

Go, go, go!
