February’s episode of The Next Chapter and it’s a goodie if I may say so myself!! Jam-packed full of wicked music plus a deep and murky guest mix by Triad. Enjoy! Next show: Wed. 16th March.
Leaving the country for a couple of days escaping the carnival season i leave you with this quick one. Nice show by DJ Flight originally aired via Rinse.FM with a couple of deep and rolling drum and bass gems, a guestmix by Triad and assorted bassmusic bits. 96kbps – the reason while i almost never repost her shows – but you get the idea. Update: If you are up for a little blast from the past here is something you might like to peep.
A lover of Chicago house and Detroit techno, his flavourful and groovesome drum ‘n bass relates directly to those forms and is often picked up on by strictly 4/4 heads. Part of the production duo MIST with ST Files, the Tubbs to his Crockett, he’s racked up plenty of underground hits on his two record lables, Soul:R and Intalex Productions. Artist albums, compilations, collaborations, 12″s, UK clubnights, remixes and tours all over the world; it’s all just business as usual for Marcus.
Mr. Marcus Intalexlexlexlexlex is back from an 8 months hiatus with a nice rollout playing the cream of the crop from a wide range of Artists. No guests, not too much chatter, just two hours of drum and bass music …
Greetings everyone! Mr. Methodus invited me to compile a mix for his Revival Radio show on Bassdrive, Sundays from 2-4pm est. I (unfortunately) rarely get to put mixes together, I know shame on me. So when I was asked, I figured I’d rise to the occasion. A little late on posting this, but peep the t/l plenty of fresh beats! More to come soon!
LT Smash (Prestige Music Group) from Florida with a flawless selection of quality vintage-esque rollers. Plenty fresh dubs, a couple forgotten gems, and the saught after “Rock With You” Bootleg inside. Get on this if you are into “early calibre” liquid vibes and beyond.
In the Spirit of Caribana (Toronto’s West Indian Carnival), Marcus has put together 45 tracks of Reggae, Dancehall and Dub influenced Jungle. This mix is one hour and 45 minutes long and is chock full of dubplates, specials and V.I.P mixes. You’ll hear tracks from Marcus forthcoming LP entitled ‘Humble‘ out soon on Lion Dub International. Featured artists include: The recently deceased reggae legend Sugar Minott (R.I.P), The Dancehall Godfather Johnny Osbourne, Bunny General, Pad Anthony, Terry Ganzie, Robert Levy, Jah Dan and Messenger Selah.
There is not much serious roots reggae influenced Drum and Bass around and most stuff you can get your hands on are half-arsed bootlegs of famous tunes with sub-par production values. Not so with this mix by Marcus Visionary for channelonestation.com. Proper production and lots of famous singers, reggae/dancehall basslines, soundclash samples, dub sirens and bleeps. Mixing is on point with bassline switches and double drops.
Yep, Gilles finally got around to a Brownswood Basement Special that he’s been promising since about 2003! He spent a whole day rummaging through stacks of 12’s, white labels and old acetates and pulled out about 40 old favourites. Photek, Peshay, Goldie, DJ Hype, Source Direct, LTJ Bukem, Roni Size, Ed Rush & Optical… 110% underground heaters, classic material and golden memories, it’s by no means a comprehensive history of D&B, but it is a great snapshot of a scene in full flow.
I am quite late on this one but this is one you should not miss. Gilles Peterson providing a two hours history lesson with loads of classic tuneage from the golden years of drum and bass. New producers please take notes.
