Marten Hørger Ft Funkanomics – Oh Girl (Hanuman Tribe Rmx)

OHGIRL_HNMT_RMX_atlernateCover

With a diverse spectrum of sound encapsulating everything the Hanuman Tribe produce and perform you may find it hard to pigeon-hole the Indonesian duo. Originally starting their career as a straight up breaks outfit, they have traversed the sounds of electro, rave, bass and more and have arrived on a very unique meld of all of these flavours, sometimes referred to as “the other side of EDM”.

Free Breaks are very pleased to bring you a fresh and exclusive remix from the Hanuman Tribe that shows off their sound perfectly. Their remix of Marten Hørger Ft Funkanomics – Oh Girl is a dirty ride of bumping, bassmusic elements, oldskool rave stabs, and highpassed amen chops.  Download below

This remix is part of their ammunition of 17 brand new, unreleased tracks called the Little Destroyer.
Basically planned as follow-up album to their debut LP, Change Of Sound, the duo are going to release these as several EPs and drop some of them as free downloads as well! So make sure you keep an eye on the Hanuman Tribe Facebook to stay up to date!

PREMIERE – Marcus Jakes – Reasons / This Much

Marcus Jakes

Cardiff based producer, Marcus Jakes, comes correct with another outstanding (dare we say deep) house release on the always on point Jalapeno Records.

‘This Much’ follows his debut EP for the label which found favour with DJ’s as diverse as Kissy Sell Out, N Type, Huxley and Kraak & Smaak and this will further showcase his flair and skill as one to watch in the house music scene.

Add to the package a bass heavy, breakbeat-jungle remix from SPX and you have an essential release which should find its way into a diverse and wide range of dj sets. I for one have been hammering the SPX remix!

We have the Premiere of the free download of ‘Reasons’ by Jakes which is another boompty slice of 4×4 goodness to go along with the release. Just try not to bounce to this!

Grab Marcus Jakes ‘This Much’ when its released on the 14th July. Pre-order HERE

Atomic Drop – Next Stop Noisily + Interview

Atomic Drop

 This years Noisily Festival is now only 24 days away. Still not grabbed your tickets? Do so HERE.

Very pleased to bring you an exclusive interview and a banger of a free track from Bass-Glitch duo Atomic Drop (in conjunction with Noisily Festival).  They have been dropping track after track of pure sickness and since the release of their debut LP ‘Apocolypto’ they have well and truly confirmed themselves as one of the hottest acts in the scene. With a brand new LP set to drop this year and a headline set at this years Noisily Festival, I caught up with James & Ken to find out a little more…

 

1. Hi guys, thanks for taking the time to answer our questions. For those that don’t know, who are you and what do you do?

We are Atomic drop, Brighton based producers James Anthony and Ken Barrett. Together we sonically sculpt deep and filthy bass heavy music that fuses all different elements of electronic dance music.

Our fresh sounds have seen us share the stage with artists as large and diverse as Underworld, Orbital, Faithless, Tinnie Tempah, Chase & Status, Booka Shade, Sub Focus and Myles Dyson. Playing and headlining at arguably some of the best clubs, events, festivals and productions the world over.

Party music for party people.

2. So you’re playing at this years Noisily Festival right? What are you most looking forward too?

Well we played there in the first two years so its an honor to be asked back, we are now Noisily Festival Residents  It was by far our favourite festival gig of both years. It is such a stunning site, vibe and crowd. The production is off the hook and the fact that it is small with limited tickets gives it such a great vibe and atmosphere.

This festival has a special place in our hearts when you enter the festival you and feel that something amazing has been created. It is a real honour to see it develop over the past few years. We always feel inspired for the rest of the year after performing here.

Atomic Drop

3. Noisily is a fairly new festival to the scene, what’s so appealing to the UK’s underground DJ’s and musicians and festival goers alike?

The quality line up – the fact it is an intimate and boutique dance fest with a late license till 6am and has no volume restrictions – that is amazing for the UK. It is in a stunning private estate grounds and the production is top notch there is such attention to detail the whole event is a work of art not just an epic rave in a beautiful private woodland estate with beautiful people. Do not miss it!

It is always great to catch a festival in its early stages and watch it grow. It is rare to play a festival that is full of love and not taken over by the commercial vibe that a lot are these days.

4. What are your three tips for for any festival goer this year?

James : Be prepared. Let Go. Blast Hard.

Ken : Sunglasses, Speedos and Lube.

5. Any crazy festival stories you would like to share with us?

There are way to many to mention and you know the old saying ‘What goes on tour stays on tour!’

Since you asked though – Ken was once caught naked whilst high on magic mushrooms at the stone circle Glastonbury festival after our Arcadia set in 2010. He has never been the same since.

Also there is one story about James that happened when we played in Bangkok a few years ago but I can’t say anymore than that. Needless to say he has also never been the same since!!

6. People may know you as Glitch Hop artists but you produce many different styles and sounds. Do you purposely try to not fit into one genre?

Well we have only really just recently starting releasing more glitch hop. We have had about 80 different releases on 20 different labels worldwide – our early years was more electro house a bit of breaks and techo… we then started experimenting with more bass genres as we were getting asked to do different remixes in those styles. We have had 2 glitch releases out on adapted. One of those was on the album and one was ;Mad Hatter’ a collab with Nimbus featuring Leftfields Vocalist/MC Cheshire Cat. We have some Glitch Hop singles and collabs line up for later this year and on our new album ‘Music By Numbers’

It’s the best thing ever to have he creative freedom to write whatever music you want as its all to easy to be stuck in one genre. I think these days you have to be ahead of the game and people expect you to switch it up with different styles. It keeps it interesting.

7. So new album coming soon right? Tell us about it.

There is less emphasis on dance floor bass heavy belters and a more diverse journey and direction, verging on more downtempo and much more funky glitch hop. It still has the bass weight but much more contained and more depth musically and creatively.

This new album is seeing us really push the different styles and is very hard to put in one genre. It is a lot more of a journey and is the accumulation of all the tracks we have been working on over the past few years. With a few surprise unreleased tracks from when we first started.

8. How does this differ from last years Apocolypto?

Our new album ‘Music By Numbers’ is much more experimental and diverse…. Still with the Bass weight but more contained. We wanted to add a but more depth, funk and groove to it some tracks even more downtempo and not really dance for belters which is what we have done for years now. We also have approached this project and tracks in totally different way creatively – going back to coming up with initial ideas with instruments to get an initial idea on the way. Switching things around helps to keep the creative juices flowing.

Well as the new album is post apocalyptic it is the calm after the storm.

9. Which are your favorite tracks on it?

On Apocolypto our favorite tracks are Catch 22 because we just came at idea with a more experimental approach and rhythm and it is so hard to even put that track into a genre 

And the other has got to be Apocolypto, we love watching that drop on an unsuspecting dance floor.

As for the new album ‘Music By Numbers’ you will just have to wait for the release and make your own minds up!

10. Any collaborations lined up for the future?

Yeah we have got loads lined up for this year including tracks with Toronto Is Broken, Red Seal, Nimbus, Slackbaba, Digitalis, Scorb, Ital Tek, Nanoplex, Neurodriver and some original tracks with vocal collaborations including Eva Lazarus (Dub Mafia), Grim Gltich, Cheshire Cat (Leftfield) and Beau.

We also have Apocolypto ‘The Remixes’ coming out later this year on Adapted Records with contributions from Bad Tango, Slackbaba, Frequent Evolve, Broken Eye, Neurodriver, Nimbus and Olmec.

11. Tell us about the free track we have to give away today.

The new track is a precursor to the album, which it will be a little taster of what to expect from the new material. 

12. Anything else you’d like to add?

Thanks for all your support, enjoy the tune and we look forward to seeing you all at Noisily Festival this year. Also a huge big ups and lots of respect going out to all involved with Noisily – we know how much time, work and energy goes into to this. Keep up the good work !

Future Funk Squad – Darker Days + The Fortess

Future Funk Squad - Darker Days

 

The third album from Breakbeat stalwart Future Funk Squad, Darker Days, drops May 12th digitally everywhere. (Pre-order HERE) The cinematic-breaks hybrid long player is a modern day breakbeat masterpiece and really shows his production skills, writing prowess and dance music knowledge to the maximum.

Today we can bring you an exclusive FREE DOWNLOAD of one of the tracks written in the recording sessions for the album, ‘The Fortress’. Read through our review and interview to grab your download at the bottom of the page.

The twelve track album kicks off in fine style with the haunting, string laden soundscape of ‘The Hunted’. Imagine a grungey/breakbeat/rock version of the exorcist theme and your somewhere close. This leads perfectly into the first of many collaborations on the LP, ‘The Rattlesnake’ featuring Mechanical Pressure. This time that grungey bass sound gets melded with acidic synth lines and epic stabs, with some very handy animal safety knowledge, to provide the first big dancefloor track.

Track three ‘Rat Race’ sees long time guest vocalist Mojo return with his unique vocal flow at the forefront.  The tempo drops a touch for the next track ‘Tactics’ featuring Wrexx but the funk levels are increased 100%. A big, squelchy electro funk bassline drives the track, with snappy drums and tech fueled lead lines taking the tune into unstoppable body moving territory. Definitely one of the standouts!

Next up the title track, Darker Days, which takes the listener on a darker trip, as expected really. Starting off like a scene from the Walking Dead before industrial drums slap you around the face and finely tuned strings and pad atmospherics combine to take you into horror movie perfection. Just watch out for the fierce, distorted synth at the end.

Nine Errors, track six, is a tasty little electro number leading us into the collaboration with Karl Sav ‘Monologue’. Karl has really been making some waves recently with his outstanding productions and here we see him pair up with FFS with an inevitably awesome outcome. A fairly light track but one that has so much depth to it.  A perfect track for those sunrise moments.

‘Soundwaves’ sees FFS get all glitched out, electronica on us taking us onto track nine ‘Cold Matter’ alongside Refracture. Refracture is another breaks artist whose productions are shining through at the moment and this collab is probably the most dancefloor orientated track on the album with its huge, chunky bassline, electric chirps and hard hitting beats.

Number ten hits us and we have another collaboration track, this time with Slighter taking up co-production duties on ‘Disease’, a fast paced, techno-breaks rock out. ‘Past Tense’ drops the tempo again into a groovy, trip hop vibe which leads into the fairly low key vibes of album finale ‘The Colony’

All in all an outstanding long player which will no doubt be in the running for Best Album at next years Breakspoll awards.

Visionary feat. Camp Souljah – Ganja Fire (Yum Cha Bootleg)

 

Very pleased to be able to bring you another fresh exclusive cut from Aussie ghetto funk and glitch specialist, Yum Cha.
