Last year BamaLoveSoul teamed up with producer Sam Champ to bring you one of the most celebrated remix albums on the net. Now they’re reconnecting to bring you the instrumentals from the remix EP plus two additional instrumentals. Look out for Sam to co-produce an album with Buscrates 16-Bit Ensemble due to be released early next year, as well as a solo project featuring a few MCs and vocalists. Also, I want to give special shout outs to DJ Rahdu and Dj Center for their involvement on the project, much respect!Read more →
SBTRKT is an anonymous producer based in London. Graciously allowing the music to speak for itself – even going to the length of performing behind a mask every time he plays out. Having just wrapped up remixes for Basement Jaxx (‘Scars’) and Franz Ferdinand (‘Send Him Away’), he’s got the airwaves in a stir with Benji B, Mary Anne Hobbs and Gilles Peterson singing his praises. With releases forthcoming on the equally anonymous Brainmath label, Ramp Recordings and the ever fun Young Turks.
SBTRKT – Something Goes Right
1) SBTRKT its short for subtract.
2) The name came about to create a musical identity separate from any single person.
3) Much of the music being played is electronic based but some future material will be live.
4) First gig was at fabric in Room 1 at Get Familiar (amazing sound/vibe!)
5) His true identity was revealed on 1st July 2011 via his twitter accountRead more →
Last week Manchester U.K. based producer Mecca:83 better known as Evan Jone, sent through an incredible instrumental E.P. entitled “The life sketches”. The album takes you on a journey through his mind, but leaves you room for personal interpretation. The opening track “together(ness)” is well-crafted and seems to borrow influences from contemporary producers while staying true to the old school. In all, the album is exactly what I would pop in for a drive on the M6 from Manchester to Birmingham :p You can download “The Life Sketches E.P.” in it’s entirety HERE. Bless up!
