First of all big ups to mister Rednik for single-handedly keeping this blog going! He even posted some dubstep (which indicates I’m not doing my job). I’ll try to be a bit more active around here, so you can enjoy even more dubstep and drum & bass! In the meanwhile I’ve been working on this mixtape. It’s part one of a blunt-inspired mixtape series I’ll be doing. This time it’s a one hour mix of deep dubstep, with artists like Pinch, Jakes, Headhunter, N-Type and many more. Read the full post for the tracklist. Of course feel free to comment!
For most of us it’s study time again. But no worries, I’ve got some laid back tracks right here that might get you through the day! This is Chill Sessions, part 9!
First of all, I selected a bit too much tunes for this session. I’m not really in the mood to talk about every track I’m posting today, so you’ll have to check ’em out yourself! Continue Reading →
After a short trip to Egypt and some other stuff I’m back to bring you some laid back tunes. This is Chill Sessions part 8 with a lot of hip hop and some drum & bass.
The best way to kick off these Chill Sessions is with this tribute to Guru (ex-Gang Starr). It has one of the best hip-hop intro’s I know, followed by some smooth rhymes by Tone Treasure. Next up a track off The Roots‘ latest album. “How I Got Over” is definitely one of the best hip hop albums of 2010!
I’ve always been a big fan of Bonobo‘s work. This hip hop track was featured on the big Ninja Tune compilation released this year. Bonobo also made a great single called “The Keeper”.
The next track I made myself. I’ve mixed Lupe Fiasco’s vocals with some hip hop beats by Eric Lau. Check it out and let me know what you think! Hope you like it.
And then there’s Flying Lotus. His album “Cosmogramma” made it into almost every list of 2010. This next tune by FlyLo gives Nelly Furtado’s vocals the best possible treatment they could get.
Sick ragga vocals got what they diserved: a drum & bass makeover by Breakage. The original mix by Shy Fx was a drum & bass tune as well, but the beats just didn’t really do it for me.
More liquid drum & bass by two of the best producers in the genre. The first one is the title track off Calibre‘s latest album. “Open Page” by Lenzman was one of the best singles of the year for me. Check out the video here.
Next up a remix by Villa which is a few months old, but we never managed to post it here. The tune by Tolerance (a jungle-influenced 140bpm track) has some great vibes as well! Check out the video of b-side “Dejection” on youtube. Last but not least there’s Kotchy remixing the one and only Starkey. Bass rhythms!
