SCUBA - Phenix 3 (Front Cover)
PNX003DS 1
6 October, 2014

Review:
The Phenix trilogy of releases from Scuba ends here with a final four-track release, and looking back over the series as a whole you might think perhaps the Hotflush boss was using it as a platform to explore his next comprehensive move. The four tracks here work in a subtle narrative arc, commencing with the restrained minimalist sound design of “Silence” before Scuba eases up the tempo across the tracks that close the A-side and open the B-side. “Nineteen Eighty” is dub techno at its most weightless, whilst “Plateau” may prove to be the most melodically enriching Scuba production in some time. The appropriately titled “Fade” brings the curtain down on Phenix in somewhat contemplative mood, leaving the question of where Paul Rose goes next…


…and this ‘rascal recommends’ this little numba too! :)

RUSHMORE - Dance Show EP (Front Cover)
HOTSHIT 010
6 October, 2014
Review:

There’s nothing subtle about the work out London-based DJ and all-round man of mystery Rushmore. This third EP – his first for DJ Haus’ Hot Haus imprint – continues in a similar vein to his first two outings for Trax Couture. That means a tough, raw blend of ghetto-tech, revivalist acid house, footwork and sub-bothering bass-house. Choose between the jacking rhythms, thunderous kick drums and Armando-ish rave stabs of “Dance Show” and “Drop Top”, a cracking, in-your-face DJ tool built around footwork style handclaps, warped sub-bass and relentless drum machine cymbals. Neither track is particularly clever, but both are most certainly big.


….and another:

Always at the top of the pecking order for apocalyptic producer-MC combos, Kode 9 and The Spaceape are back in action once again and sounding as visceral as ever. “Chasing A Beast” suggests a change in stance for the pair, with Kode 9 working a cheekily swaying groove and Spaceape delivering a slightly less baritone, mildly Americanised flow. It’s still as dark as ever, but “Devil Is A Liar” too shows a lighter, more limber approach to the finished product, not so leaden in British urban dread. The minimalism reaches a peak on “Heart” with its slithering smatterings of trap and plush chords, while Spaceape rips the human condition to shreds, and the later into the EP you go the more adventurous the tracks become. It’s a fresh approach that will keep the fans on their toes while proving this is a pair that will never rest on their laurels.

[DPH012] Sunjaman – Outta Here (EP)

 

Artist: Sunjaman
Title: Outta Here (EP)
Cat: [DPH012]
Genre: Dubwise / Stepper / Rootstep / Jungle
Country: Greece
Release date: 09-03-2014
CC Licenses-by-nc-nd/3.0

Sunjaman is an upcoming producer from Athens, Greece. Being a musician & bass player himself, he has always been exploring the sound of the bass, trying to travel into new territories on his effort to establish his own sound. On the process of exploring the bass territory, he had joined many bands and created numerous side-projects, from punk to hiphop. Nevertheless, dub has always been his main goal.

Inspired by the originality of roots dub and influenced by the modern dub steppa scene, he began to produce and public his tracks online. He made his debut release in 2013 and continued with many collaborations and releases. This is the first time he collaborates with Dubophonic. The style of Sunjaman’s can’t be described by only one musical genre. It combines many elements of bass music, such as dubstep, jungle, steppa, roots, dubwise. This is eminent in this 7-track EP, consisting of three original tracks and four alternative cuts.

Nuff respect to Northical from the Greek band/soundsystem Kako Synapantima for vocalising “Heavyweight Sound”, as well as Manwel T from Dubkey Records for his version of “Outta Here”.  Big shout out also to Jungle Raiders for a very energetic jungle cut of “Witness the day”. The cover art is credited to Katerina Arvaniti.

TRACKS: 01 Heavyweight Sound (ft. Northical) // 02 Outta Here // 03 Witness the Day // 04 Heavyweight Sound (Sunjaman Re-Dub) // 05 Outta Here (Manwel T Remix) // 06 Witness The Day (Jungle Raiders Remix) // 07 Witness The Day (Re-Edit)

I figured” Lets just set up the gear and make some noise!! its the last quarter of 2012!! I don’t need the paint job and the skirting boards done to make good music, they can wait. I do plan to install an adjustable (use when needed) vocal booth soon…

bassheads


shit yeah, hell yeah

 


Review:
Following huge releases from Digi G’Alessio and Stabber in recent months, Crookers’ Lucky Beard imprint comes through with another EP of weird and wonderful yet heavy bass hybrids. “Skills” takes a house structure and flips it round with its skeletal beats and vocal samples and thundering low-end, while “Crafting” takes 808 percussion and wraps it up in some moody bass rumble. “Thief”, “Mage” and “Warrior” meanwhile opt for some dubstep-style half-time action, which despite their hip-hop shapes are undeniably heavy beasts.

…and this is a great album::


Review:
Already a respected figure in the underground of his home turf in Japan, XLII delivers his first extended release outside his country on Civil Music, who can always be counted on to deliver the most unclassifiable bass shapes. Throwing brittle 808 beats into the mix with half-time tempos, off kilter dubstep basslines and tweaked out, scattershot samples, one need look no further than the footwork vibes of “No Cure” and the thudding bass weight of “Rasclap” for proof of the man’s talents. Ean’s frantic juke reworking and Broken Haze’s abrasive take on “Dilated” provide serious thrills, though it’s Starkey’s tense, sparse reworking of “Thro Yo!” and the crazed, slapbass styles of NcLoving really deliver the goods.

…all this shiz coming ‘rascal recommended!’
