In the pipeline for quite some time, and spurred on by the unique nature of the collaborative project in which Elite Force and Klaus Badult were commissioned to create a soundtrack for the PS3 game Motorstorm Apocalypse, the hype surrounding the Shockland album release has been huge, to say the least.


New to my ears, Star Slinger popped up after a friend dropped me a recommendation on Facebook (thanks Ciaren!). All it really took was one listen and my interest was sparked. His sublime, melodic beats, weaved together with pitched up soul vocals, and on-point sampling, went down a treat. A quick trawl through his Soundcloud […]


Put together a one hour promo mix for the upcoming White Noise event on May 6th at First Floor. It’s a combination of all things breaks with both old and new tracks throughout. Due to the nature of the event and the fact that the White Noise krew are more known for their dark 4/4 genres, the idea was to cover as much Breakbeat related scope as possible whilst not going too underground. Starting out on a banger to grab some attention, the first half is funky and upbeat with some more commercial tracks thrown in – the last half covers the Progressive side of things.


For those unfamiliar with the brilliance that is Dextro you now have the chance to get extremely intimate with his entire back catalogue, completely free of charge! This is essential listening for any and all that are partial to chill-out and ambient music. By far Dextro is one of my favourite chill-out/ambient producers. Similar in sound to Boards Of Canada, Dextro is the moniker of Scottish producer Ewan Mackenzie. Primarily he produces music that takes on influences from a broad-range of genre’s from rock, folk music, ambient and electronica and rolls them all into a ball of warm heart-felt beats. His production has an epic cinematic feel that begs for you to let your mind wander and dream. Words don’t really do his music justice.


A few weeks back Teebs released a limited edition hand-painted B-Sides counterpart of a selection of out-takes and remixes from Ardour. Only 150 were made and they sold out in under a day. For those that were unlucky enough to miss out on securing one you’ll be happy to know that Teebs has now made available a previously unreleased CDR from 2009. Similar in vein to the B-Sides release, the unnamed 2009 CDR contains a total of 10 tracks containing a selection of unreleased pieces and alternate versions of music that didn’t originally make the cut for Ardour or the B-Sides.


DnB holds a special place in my heart. A genre I’ve been playing and listening to for quite some time now, Im always on the look-out for quality DnB in all forms and styles. Personally I’ve found alot of current DnB has been sounding quite stale, and my current intake has dwindled somewhat. I suppose one might say im not looking hard enough, which is probably true… but honestly it really hasn’t pricked my ears. A lot of stuff being released on Beatport and other digital retailers has started to sound really washed out and begun to follow a tried and tested structure. So needless to say I was quite surprised to find a 46 track compilation full of quality DnB (and some dubstep) available for free download. At first I was quite skeptical, thinking that the production levels would be low and shoddy, but upon my first listen i was instantly set back – this shit is tight!


The infamous mash-up artist Girl Talk has just released his latest album for FREE! Dropped earlier this morning the server in which it was hosted has been inundated with download requests from fans across the globe. The minute I found out it was available I was straight over to the website feverishly refreshing in the […]


Been a while since my last post, so thought it was about time I got some new music flowing. Been hard at work on the decks lately and put together this mix. Clocks in at just under 80 mins. Combination of all things house; Progressive, Techno and everything in between. It’s relatively laid-back, but still with a funky vibe. Starts off with some Tech-House related tunes, later moving into some deep Prog.


Spurred on by a thread over at ITM, and with a large hand from deck whom hooked me up with all the sets, I’ve been able to upload a heap of old-school harder edged type mixes from in and around the Melbourne area from clubs such as Hard Kandy, Bass Station and Wet Musik. Recorded around the late 90s to early 2000s they do well in capturing the awesome vibe that was alive in our flourishing rave scene “back in the day”.


22tape, whom you might remember from this earlier post, has just offered up a tasty remix of The Glitch Mob’s ‘Drive It Like You Stole It’. Compiled for the official ‘Remix It Like You Stole It’ competition, 22tape is in the running to be featured on TGM’s upcoming Drink The Sea remix album. A well deserving prize imo!
