The third release in my Beats mix series! Following on from my previous offerings, Beating Me Up and Beating Me Around, I’ve done my best not to be constrained by genre or style, spanning a whole cross section of different sounds, textures and styles, all whilst attempting to convey a cohesive journey. Covering ambient, trip-hop, […]

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 […]

A few weeks back I received an email from a producer named 22tape. Having come across the blog, he was in the midst of doing some self-promo for an upcoming EP release of his – MosaicChangeTone. Included was a link to download said EP. Summed up in the email, he described the release as “downbeat vinylistic hip hop with a smidge of glitch” – instantly I was intrigued.
I really enjoy being confronted with music that I have no previous knowledge of. Needless to say I jumped at the chance of being offered up some fresh beats from a producer Id never heard of. When your offered up new music like that you have no expectations. There’s nothing previous to judge your listening on – you’re mind is open and the music is able to do it’s work as intended. And work the music did.

Warning! Shameless self promotion contained within. 😉 Few weeks back I was booked for a down tempo hip-hop and trip-hop set. Genre’s Id never previously had the opportunity to play to a live crowd, and with being such a huge lover of hip-hop, trip-hop and all the beats genres (as you’ll probably notice from trawling […]

I’ve been kind of slack with updating the blog as of late. Busy in the midst of organizing Substance’s 2nd Birthday event, and trying to get the new Substance website online. It’s kind of taken up all of my spare time and unfortunately the blog has had to take a back seat. Anyway, over the […]

Some of you may already be familiar with DJ Kper’s ‘Wonk Funk’, so please don’t get annoyed that im posting up old stuff, but it’s one of those mixes that’s just too good not to share. So whilst it may be old and some of you may have already heard it, those of you who have not NEED to give it some time.

Don’t you love it when you come across new music? An artist or simply just the one track that really makes you smile. With the digital formats taking front and centre and the ease at which an artist can now get a track out, electronic music has in my opinion, started to become a little […]

The boys over at Rhythm Incursions have dropped their first podcast for twenty ten, and my cork, what a phenomenal way to start the year!
DDay One from Los Angeles has taken the reins for a concept mix constructed around a theme from a best-selling book that attempts to “motivate the listener”. The concept itself sounded a little weird at first to me, but knowing Rhythm Incursions and their insistence on second to none quality, I decided to give it a go.
