Steppas Records introduce the second instalment of the Eight Trigram series. Trigram02 introduces the fresh talents of Nottingham’s Adam Prescott and German Korean producer JahYu. Prescott is well known for his roots inspired dubstep, having worked with established artists such as Kenny Knots, Brother Culture, Daddy Freddy, Radikal Guru, Dub Pistols, Iration Steppas, Dynamite MC, Linval Thompson & Jah Screechy. For Trigram Two Prescott reveals the deeper and darker side of his productions with Shang Kuan Cheng. JahYu returns to Steppas due to popular demand following his acclaimed debut in 2012 which was awarded Track of The Month in leading dance magazine Mixmag. This time JahYu does not hold back, unleashing a heavy oriental steppers take on the classic Kunte Kinte riddim, already being represented by bass-heavy soundsystems around the globe. This super limited edition 400 press is mastered by renown mastering veteran Beau housed in the reverse-board Trigram house bag.

Yes, we are a crowd.

It seems it was yesterday, but it has been more than 12 years since that epic text* that shook european disobedience movement was written, short before Geneva Summit

“They say that they are new, they christen themselves by acronyms: G8, IMF, WB, WTO, NAFTA, FTAA… They cannot fool us, they are the same as those who have come before them: (…) the old world that stopped our assaults and destroyed all stairways to heaven.

Nowadays they have a new empire, they impose new servitudes on the whole globe, they still play the lords and masters of the land and the sea. Once again, we the multitudes rise up against them.”

Yes, we are a crowd. Javier Ochoa has his mind clear and his rethorical questions quickly finds the answer in this track, full of consciousness, pride and (re)assertion

Yes, we are a crowd. We are no longer doubtful. That is what we are: little, young and old, fighting for our rights, armed with our words and bodies.

And our music: derlivered once again by Bass CUlture Players, this time under the Back-A-Yard label. This deep and solid riddm seems tailor-made for the message and vocals of Javier Ochoa. Puppashan complets the work with a penetrating dub splattered with sparks.

And judging by its latest releases, anyone could think that Discoinferno holds on to our time’s pulse. Our time, where doubts, fears and questions transform into affirmation:

Yes, we are a crowd.

After the United Kingdom and France, perhaps the most promising rising force of the Reggae & Dub scene in the European world of vibes is Spain. One of the most talented new artists is without doubt Jennifer Paulos and it is really a pleasure to present her latest work on our netlabel.
Born in Ponferrada, Spain, the Hispano-Swiss-Portuguese artist has started releasing her first works back in 2010 with Hide Side on “Corrupzion in Zion” (2010) and since then she is moving only forwards. The collaborations with the local Spanish artist Dub Presidents, who produced her first album “The trial of the Self” (2010), as well as with Mystic Selectah (2012) from Madrid, were the starting point in her musical path. It was only a matter of time she would accomplish her international breakthrough through her collaborations with Izi Dub (FR) and Hi Fi Champion (CAN) in 2013.
Her first work on Dubophonic is called “Revolution” and consists of nine tracks of pure consciousness, among them a version of a classic Tappa Zukie tune. Sang in Spanish and English, she uses her warm voice as a trademark of her Mediterranean oriented sound spreading to all listeners the funky vibes of her soul. Alongside with her you can find some exclusive dubs by the Dub Presidents (ES), Svaha Sound System (UK), Mat DT Sound (FR) / Woody Vibes (FR) / Cloud of Vib’s (FR) & Mystic Selectah (SP), as well as a special bonus track by Dave Doma (ES). We say no more, just enjoy the vibes of Jennifer’s music and feel the consciousness of her lyrics.

,,awesome dub coming from dubophonic net label, ‘rascal recommended’

 

Go to release and download here.

Blessed with a devotion to dub and roots culture and politicised by the inequalities that haunt a world of plenty, Red Star Martyrs have arrived as the latest incarnation of musician and producer Stanley Wood. As a member of cult Birmingham reggae outfit Route 81, Stanley learnt his trade as a guitarist and gigging musician before becoming part of guerrilla graffiti specialists and urban raconteurs Echo Base. Here he encountered for the first time the mystical world of the recording studio and within it, the wonders of the Roland Space Echo – a love affair was born.

 

The romance bloomed with the arrival of affordable technology, enabling those that dared to dream the chance to create their own Channel One studio. The logical outcome for Stanley was Shotgun Rockers. From producing original dubs for the Dub Nation sound system, Shotgun Rockers became recording artists for Zip Dog, Nubian and Tanty records at the moment when a new breed of dub was being formed, introducing the energy of European dance music to inspiration from the legends of the Jamaican dub.

 

Fast forward to the now and Red Star Martyrs exist as an open collective where roots and dub artists from all over the world are invited to contribute and collaborate, bringing a message of love, unity and political consciousness. Oh yeah, and to have fun too, because roots dub music is what makes us all smile, right?

 

The EP includes two tracks accompanied by the appropriate dubs for your personal recreation. “Insurrection” is a heavy stepper tune, followed by two exclusive mixes in one drop and breakbeat style. First appearance of Mrs Boo La La aka Bec Crispin on “Independence” spreading the rootical vibrations all the way.spreading the rootical vibrations all the way.

Dexcell – Face The Music EP

Posted on 8th September 2012 by Brett Caporn (LRRecords) in dnb,dubstep,labels,music,reggae,release promo - Tags: , , , , ,

“Some big tunes here folks from a producer working it,…dropping on Mastermind Records” –  ‘rascal recommended’

Dexcell – Scramble

Dexcell Array (Feat Proton)

Dexcell – Decoy

Out 9th  September on Vinyl and Digital Downloads.

 

After the success of Dexcell’s first single with Mastermind Records (‘Believe’), which gained worldwide support on TV, radio, dance floors and festivals, Dexcell have now come forward with a new release which displays  to  their many fans that they are still deeply rooted in the underground production world. With bookings at  festivals across Europe and the UK, a number of remixes for major labels and over ten million youtube views, Dexcell are well on their way to becoming a household name. The ‘Face The Music’ E.P is already making waves in the Drum and Bass world, proving that their production is on par with the elite as well as showcasing their tight Dubstep production skills. This EP is the next step on their journey with Mastermind; with their debut album in the works, this EP shows that fans can expect a lot more from this phenomenal trio in the near future. So keep your eyes peeled.

 

The lead track on the EP, Timebomb, has already received extensive coverage on stations such as BBC 1 Xtra and on packed dancefloors worldwide, and it is easy to imagine why. The track begins with a seductive pad which is rich and warm in texture, and the short stabs of heavily reverbed and delayed synth create an ambient feel. Tribal drums, although not a prominent feature in the intro, add to the mystical texture Dexcell creates. The track itself consists of a bruising and dirty heart wrenching bassline over a rolling breakbeat, and this bleak,  forbidding sound becomes a fundamental aspect of Dexcell’s production throughout the EP. The drum sequencing is given further layers through the use of more tribal drums, and unlike many Drum and Bass producers, Dexcell avoids over relying on a simple, repetitive loop.

 

Scramble is the second track on Dexcell’s ‘Face The Music’ EP, and draws strongly on dance floor and roots reggae influences while retaining the thundering basslines and driving kick patterns that makes Drumstep such an appealing genre to ravers. Reggae is a genre that many drum and bass producers utilize, but rarely as effectively as Dexcell does here. The drum rolls and synth’s create a sound similar to that of dancehall artists  such as Movado, which leads into an explosion of Drumstep turmoil driven by pistol-crack snares and anarchic bass. This in turn leads into a fully-fledged Drum and Bass sequence, and introduces a more menacing bass sound. The interesting use of west- coast style synths over the breakdown reveals Dre style hip-hop influences; this and the dancehall vibe introduced from the opening makes ‘Scramble’ a multi-dimensional Drumstep hit that will interest fans of many genres of urban music.

 

The penultimate on the EP ʻArrayʼ showcases the new direction taken by the artists in pursuing a draker and more underground vibe. The intro offers an almost melancholic string section that, coupled with the heavily reverbed pads, create a sense of uncertainty. Unlike many producers, Dexcell employs a much more restrained take on the drop, which is subtle and suits the track perfectly. The bassline is not overdone either; it is simple and repetitive, avoiding the overly heavy basslines that are commonplace in many energy rich Drum and Bass  of today, while remaining effective and prominent. The drum sequencing also differs from conventional Drum and Bass in that Dexcell’s choice of snare resembles more of a clap; this helps create a dillinja-esque vibe that  seems to be coming back to the forefront in a number of established current producers. Overall, Array  presents the listener with a sinister side of Drum and Bass, that is both innovative and captivating.

 

The final piece on the EP is a Dubstep track, ʻDecoyʼ more conventional in the sense that it is more or  less  a relentless wave of hard basslines and even harder drum sequencing that is sure to smash raves across the country. However  Dexcell’s  use  of  spacey  synths  and  awe-inspiring  pads  give  the  track  another  dimension;  while  it  is undoubtedly a ruthless and aggressive track, it is unsettlingly melodic in parts. The drop is so sudden that the listener is not prepared for it, and is brought from an ominous yet harmonious bell-like sound and dragged straight into an intense wall of heavily distorted wobble basses and snare drums. Coming from producers that are better known for their Drum and Bass, Decoy exhibits Dexcell’s versatility and ability to make club smashers in both the Dubstep and Drum and Bass world.

Dusty Fungus – Intonarumori EP (Available @ Addictech August 6th)

quirky atmospheric crazy – ass producer DUSTY FUNGUS dropping a EP forthcoming with SIXBUX Productions… – ‘rascal recommended’

Dusty Fungus – Intonarumori EP (Available @ Addictech August 6th) by SixBux Productions

In the noise-driven world of a not-so distant future, sound has become the dominant form of sensory perception. With ears more sensitive than eyes, the desire grows to inhibit an equivalent field of sound. The once aesthetically pleasing realm of traditional music becomes challenged by noise-generating machines capable of complex tonality and infinite timbre. And, as the deeply emotive and provocative nature of these new sounds is granted society’s favour, the future of humanity is celebrated. Now, the world will hear only the perpetual symphony of the Intonarumori.

Almost a century later, and this concept is explored once more. Earthly female vocals immerse a delicately strung mandolins notes as tight breaks lay fluid foundations for moist oscillations, challenging the observed compatibility of auditory perception akin to ‘The Anthropic Principle’. As the low motions of bass tones form body for the rolling percussions rise and fall, granular synths morph amidst a spacious ambience. The sweet charm of classical strings eases the ‘Surreal Futurist’ further into the depths of immersive synthesis, creating the illusion of a timeless harmony. Awakened, empowering chants of Gregorian origin resonate growth within a gorgeously strung and swung, emotive headspace. The lively vibrations of neoclassical strings and synthetic foley fusion amplify the depths of ‘Aphorisms and Interludes’, engaging the senses in a defined yet harmonious journey.

Drawing influence from the sounds of new and old, organic and industrial, conventional and not, Dusty Fungus strives to create a complex, contrasting polyphony between the two. This marries the sincere, nostalgic qualities of classical music with the unique timbres and rhythms of industrial noise, making for a passionately intriguing, innovative experience.
