I just realised we didn’t get around posting Requake’s “Waterdrops EP”. In fact we haven’t posted anything about Requake yet… What a shame! This Belgian(!) dubstep trio has gained lots of recognition in a very short time. There’s one keyword in their productions: BASS! But I guess I’ll just let the music do the talking…
Who is That Noize? Inordertodance. What You Want. These tracks should definitely ring some bells, they are taken from Housemeister‘s debut album “Who Is That Noize”. Housemeister has always had a really distinguishing sound and apart from that he always has been a peculiar guy. A few years ago I saw him play a gig at a local party, for starters he looked a bit wasted, so I didn’t got my hopes very high and at that time he was also playing with vinyl. Was it the bad material or just him being wasted but a mix between records couldn’t have gone any wronger… . The crowd lost interest in this, at that time not so popular, dj/producer. I stood loyal to his debut album still enjoying those tracks (even these days) but I didn’t get warm for any new releases and let most of them pass me by.
(This is starting to sound like a bad review isn’t it?) Hell, let’s cut the negative crap, Housemeister’s second album “Music Is Awesome” is … AWESOME! The intro track gives the whole package a nice retro extravaganza feeling (like those old american black&white movies, not like I have seen any, but you know what I mean). The title track “Music Is Awesome” is probably one my least favourites, but what makes up for this track is this brilliant videoclip that goes along with it, there’s also a video contest going on, you should check that one out, got the feeling some funny as stuff is gonna follow out of that one. The album features some high tempo, action packed tracks like Rapide, Twisteras and Saverave as well as more relaxing easylistening tunes like Feed The Robots and Sommer. Also nBaxx featuring Boys Noize is on the album which was previously released on the Shizzo EP by Boys Noize and Housemeister, had some great responds on this track at last weeks gig, you immediately feel the Boys Noize touch on this one when playing it. For my favourite track on the album I’m going for Schnee Von Gestern feat. Jan Driver, another brilliant collaboration which results in a track that will get some reaction from the even more commercial minded crowds I think!
Housemeister has his facts right, music is indeed awesome. And while having a very distinguishing sound I think this EP will reach more then just the “scene”. Must get album for this summer! Oh yeah, the album is out today, but you can still listen to the preview here.
Here are some of the best recent dubstep and drum & bass tunes. Don’t forget to buy them at Beatport, Juno or whatever you prefer! All tracks have a reduced bitrate.
The first tune is a real grimey banger! Heavy pumpin’ beats by Von D combined with the intense, aggressive raps by Foreign Beggars and MC Spyda! The track will be released on Von D’s forthcoming album, called “Daydreaming”.
The mysterious trio known as The Aliens return with a full album! They’ve already amazed the dubstep scene with tracks like ‘Xterminate’ and ‘wOt’, but here they are again with “Invasion”, containing 11 mind blowing tracks. Be amazed!
