Xeropoint- Whats Up / Badman [Physmatics]

Xeropoint- Whats Up & Badman [Physmatics]

 

https://www.trackitdown.net/track/xeropoint/badman/drum_and_bass/11164842.html

These two tracks from XEROPOINT both flex some serious musical muscle!!!! We start with the abrasive synth’s and minimal beats of ‘Whats Up’. A harder and more hedonistic take on the stripped back style of D&B. The approach here is quite the opposite of the deep subs you might be used to. The synths growl and spit venom, often rudely interrupted by hoover riffs and subtle shades of 90s rave.

‘Badman’ sounds like The Predator creeping through the jungle waiting to ambush his prey. Crunchy beats, shards of the amen break. The aluminiferous hole punching bassline on this robust number seethes with computer rage and rudeboy attitude. XEROPOINT  must have been pretty angry when he created these fearsome beasts in the lab. Don’t say we didn’t warn you!!!!

Cometh the hour, cometh the Jaguar Paw ready to ambush your ears with the junglist credentials of a true apex predator. The 3 track ‘Cubana’ pierces straight into the skull with a powerful bite. Our pick of three is the chilled yet deadly ‘Fever’ with its reggae leanings. Get at this all junglists!!!

Danny Rich’s huge UK Funky track ‘Nightingale’ is out on Major Leauge Hustlaz with remixes by Emptea/Dapz & Midway.

Danny Rich’s original version is a haunting blend of late night melodies, ragga rhythms, rolling percussion and penetrating subs. Midway sticks closely to the original blueprint of ‘Nightingale’ albeit at 170bpm with cutting bass tabs and crunching kicks. Emptea & Dapz go at it with a second DnB version that focuses strongly on the ragga elements taken from the UK Funky track and adding to that with more heavy duty ragga jungle synths.

Rainforest- Life On Earth LP [Movementinsound] out 31/03/17

Rainforest is known  primarily for his DnB productions. This time, the Mexican beatsmith offers up a full LP of DnB, Downtempo Breaks and Dub influenced soundscapes. Its a case of which pearl to pick first from this ocean of tranquil beats. Maybe you could try on the stripped back aquatic grooves of ‘Arrivals’ full of swirling flamenco guitar licks and gentle percussion. From tranquil water we move to warmer deeper parts of the sea with the dubby ethereal jungle fusion ‘Bay Tempo’  (more…)

Dirtybird present a fresh remix album of Justin Martin ‘Hello Clouds’ A crack team of artist get hold of the massive tracks on this LP. Walker & Royce put a squelchy stamp on ‘The Feels’ while Brummie badman Low Steppa puts his signature Bass/House/Grage shine on it. Ardalan manipulates the 303 box into exciting new shapes for his remix of ‘Hello Clouds’ whereas Jakwob goes for a UK Bass House take with touches of Future R&B and even a bit of Techno with his rework. Redlight gives ‘Wet Cat’ a dark edged bubbling rinse out before we move on to Kyle Watson’s deep n’ durty refix of ‘Odyssey.’

‘Midnight’ gets the quirky treatment from Doorly and a busy and uplifting going over by Soul Clap. Lenny Kiser delivers a bass rich weapon of remix for ‘Rabbit Hole’ veering into breaks territory. Little By Little go for a bit of Defected style House stylings on their ‘Rabbit Hole’ remix. This leaves us with two remixes of ‘Back To The Jungle’, one, a DnB reworking of exceptional classiness by DJ Marky with a little nod to Gat Decor ‘Passion’ and Chris Lorenzo’s hybrid Breaks/Bass/House monster of a remix. Need to have tunes right here!!!

From the darkest ugliest shadows comes INPHEKT with ‘Something Sinister’ on Viral Mental, an LP of unbridled rage at 170+BPM. Tracks like ‘The Beast’ and ‘In The Shadows’ take on the aesthetic of Rotterdam terrorcore meets DnB in the style of PRSPCT Recordings. Skull busting kick drums get morphed into stepping DnB beats, the backdrop for the harshest imaginable yet musical synths. Beauty comes in many forms, sometimes it’s not so pretty on the outside but the ears can’t say no!!!

If you love the early 00’s DnB sound of Ed Rush & Optical, you’re gonna love Stargate Experiment, Ocularis & Shed My Skin. Self Aware’s new 3 track EP on Wicked Jungle Recs. The EP heralds a return to the full bodied analogue sound that made the 00’s Techstep sound so great back then. Self Aware demonstrates great diversity over the trio of tunes ranging from crunchy Neuro injected steppers to murky amen slammers!!!
