Time for some dubstep! Mensah (Bristol, UK) is down to his third release on the H.E.N.C.H. imprint. After “Pulse 80s” (split with Jakes) and his “Untitled Future Funk EP”, he now releases three more fresh dubstep tunes. With every release Mensah is getting better and better. Especially his collab with Noah D makes this new EP a must-buy! He’s been combining his influences from Rave, Grime and Dubstep to produce anything from an upbeat purple sound to a darker, heavier bass.
Digital Dreamer kicks off the EP with some dreamy synths, followed by a trippy harmonic lead. Check out Mensah’s bouncing bass rhythms!
Now for some more heavy bass action! Mensah teams up with Noah D, a big combination if you ask me! After a mystic intro the drop brings you a big, captivating bassline. I played this one out last friday and it was a real banger!
“I am Jealov, You are Jealov, We are Jealov, This is Jealov.”
Talking about love on first sight, Jealov is a fresh Belgian (from Leuven) producers who produces amazing tracks and remixes. It’s very hard to describe his genre, his facebook page says: “unable”, which pretty much sums it up. Another blog on the internet describes them as “chillwave” but in the end you just have to check these two remix and the mixtape from a month ago (still worth downloading and listening, thrust me!). Based on the mixtape alone you could compare Jealov with stuff like Hudson Mohawke, jazzy loops, hip hop beats and so on. This could have gone easily in one of Jack Herror’s Chill Sessions I think!
Some tracks just don’t work/sound that good when playing it in your own room or just at a small party, but they absolutely do work at those bigger events partys like for instants I Love Techno. It’s exactly those kinds of tracks Sharkslayer seems to be producing, maybe his studio is in a huge abandoned airplane hangar?
