Episode 37 (10/2/11)

Thanks to everyone who tuned in this week. It was a rough show for me honestly. I hadn’t practiced my beatmatching since the footwork episode last week, so it might be a little rusty at first. Overall, though, as always the selection is on-point, in my opinion. A lot of new housy, garagey stuff with just a little bit of dubstep to roughen the edges a bit.

Obviously, I’m gonna be spinning Bax by Mosca– undoubtedly the best tune of the year. It has everything I want from a club tune. Sweet 2-step beat, a bassline to make your face look like a bulldog, and that late night groove that makes you dance for hours. That release in general (A-side: Done Me Wrong) released on Numbers, is one huge ode to garage– deploying so many 2-step signifiers that it shoves the “future garage” label to the side. I’m gonna see if I can maybe chat with him and post up an interview on here– haven’t really done that in a while.

Played a lot of the new Sully record (Carrier, KeySound Recordings), which is a record people should be jamming to at the moment, since he kinda explores all aspects of the present bass continuum. Dubstep and Dark garage on the 135-140 realm, and also the darkest of 160 bpm vibes with the ongoing explosion of footwork battle tunes from Southside Chicago.

Played some L-Wiz who I really got into after jamming to really old Joe Nice mixes from 2005– he spun “Egyptian” like three times in one set and I fell in love with it.

I also played some stuff from the free Adult Swim compilation “[unclassified]”. Overall the comp is okay, but some songs really standout (Untold “Peaky”, SBTRKT “Golddigger”, XXXY “Kerpow”), which is why I played those. But hey, it’s a free release with some brand new, pretty good material– no complaints. You can get that here.
