We really don't have any time to waste here. An incredible track by a Berlin bass soldier that goes by the name of Objekt. Immaculately produced. Rhythms in constant flux. Jaw dropping opening bassline. Neck dislocating qualities. Upcoming May release on Rubadub records. Use with caution.

This dude made a brief appearance on the scene earlier last year with his single "BTSTU", which was released for free on myspace. Over a year later, it has exploded onto the blogosphere and has been remastered and released by none other than XL recordings. In my humble opinion, "Don't fuck with me" is a fantastic way to open a pop song. The combination of falsetto vocals and crunchy basslines doesn't hurt either. I give you Jai Paul.

Here is the official remastered version:

Jai Paul- BTSTU



I won't bother trying to articulate the beauty of this mix any more than Teki Latex. Apparently this frenchman has better english than I do. Check the writeup and track list here. All i will say is that it features the most promising and progressive talent France has to offer.

Git It

Brief post on the most swaggering beat i've heard in a while. Accompanied by none other than Rosay, Duece Poppi brings that unmistakable Atlanta fire. Huh!

Longtime favourite Noob is putting out an EP, entitled Crumble, on Popof's Form records. If you haven't heard of Noob, know that he is at the forefront of french techno, making immaculately produced beats that never fail to get those heads nodding vigorously. This EP is pure unadulterated fun. Teki Latex on vocals for the last track? I think so. Listen up.

Bonus Noob grooves:

Autokratz- Stay the Same (Noob Remix)

Proxy- Vibrate (Noob Remix)


Dillon Dillon Dillon

!!!! Hugest moombahton track yet. Ever? Dillon Francis has done it again. Toddla T was recently taken by the moombahton scene on our side of the pond. He proceded to dedicate an entire BBC radio1 show to the worlds sexiest genre. He then promptly got this genre-blending bass hound on remix duty for his latest single "Take It Back". The result is a slow burning yet immensely explosive dancefloor killaaa. I'll let you get to it.

Toddla T- Take It Back (Dillon Francis Remix)


Southern Fried

His Name Is Tiga

Montreal native and electro hero Tiga has taken over BBC's six mix. Tune in for the best of techno. Riddled with hilarity, these two hours feature world exclusives from the likes of Gesaffelstein and upcoming releases on Tiga's label Turbo. The track list ranges from the grooves of nu-disco-house-dance-punk outfit Hercules and Love Affair to the techy goodness of Italian techno legend Marco Carola. But i'll let Tiga do the talking. boom.

Tiga BBC Six Mix



My fellow administrators and I had previously agreed to hold off on any Shambhala Music Festival hype for a while, but there is one artist i can't help but mention. Justin Martin was recently announced to be playing the Pagoda stage on friday night. Needless to say, this news has rendered me ecstatic. Justin's presence was somewhat expected due to past appearances from DirtyBirders at Shambhala, (check the San Fransisco based record label here). Claude Von Stroke played two years ago, followed by Justin's brother Christian. But i digress. Justin has been gravitating towards a more playful, bass laden sound as of late, and i have no complaints. His tracks are filled with large and in charge 808s and that jacking Detroit sound, all creating a perfect amount of bounce. See wadda mean:

Here is an early collab between the brothers.

The Martin Brothers- Stoopit

Their most recent original release. Steal Drums. Full of the sickest breakdowns and driving relentless basslines.

The Martin Brothers- Steal Drums

And finally, Justin Martin's remix of house darling Rachel Barton.

Rachel Barton-Goose Step (Justin Martin Remix)


If you liked any of the above, this one is a no brainer. Dancefloor destroyer from
Frankfurt native The Beat


Quick post before I run off to work. New Dillon Francis track just dropped - Beautician. Another dubstep anthem to get inspired from. This guy is on fire - (one of the) top producer(s) of 2011. Calling it now.




Big stuff from big names gracing your speakers today. Canadians Zed's Dead just released a large tune stepping away from their previous dubstep anthems, but regardless, still hitting hard in classic Zed's Dead form. Can't wait to lose my shit to this at Shambhala this year, just like it's 1975. Brooklynite heavy hitter AC Slater released a retake on Rihanna's 'Only Girl In the World.' He and fellow producer Riton did a beautiful job on this club ready track. Love it. Next, Shambhala headliner for the Fractal Forest stage, Kingdom, also has a brand new remix out that delivers pleasure in his classic heavy and eerie way. I finish off this post with a mandatory moombahton track, cause I just can't get enough of this shit. Indonesian madman Angger Dimas gets remixed in the best way possible by fellow Indo native Mahesa Utara.

Enjoy your week - I'm off to Thailand later this week for up to three months, so my posting may dwindle in the next few months. I'll try my best, but I'm sure Hank will take good care of you and will keep your musical thirst quenched.



Holy Other

Hailing from Manchester, Holy Other is creating some fantastically eerie and beautiful beats. He gives us distorted and reverberating soundscapes, all accompanied with stunning vocals, leaving us slightly dazed and inevitably wanting more.



Again, stunning.

Asobi Seksu - Trails (Holy Other Remix) by HOLY OTHER

Here is a reduced quality taste of an upcoming release on Tri-Angle Records.

Holy Other- Touch

More Brodi!

Couldn't help but post last week's essential mix by the aforementioned french powerhouse Brodinski. This mix is a friggen journey. It starts off with some soulful R&B, quickly morphing into some of the nastiest rap i've heard. Crunk to say the least. From here the sound travels through space/time by way of various styles of UK bass and Moombahton. It draws to a close with some seamless mixing, hard hitting techno, and progressive beats from fellow frenchman and LPC favourite Canblaster. Brodinski is the future.

Forever Vump

Massive french house DJ Brodinski & Guillaume Brière of The Shoes have been making news under the pseudonym Gucci Vump, their duo project that started in 2009. This side project combines Brodinski's background in house with Brière's rough electro-grunge style resulting in a completely unique and interesting sound. Here's to hopes that this duo takes over in the next few years!
Their most recent remix of Woodkid's Iron follows along with two other Vump classics. Enjoy.


Post Purple

Ginz is one of the two central figures behind the creation and progress of the dubstep sub-genre Purple. Ginz and fellow Bristol badman Joker have been churning out instrumental yet bass heavy dubstep for a couple years now, and show no sign of letting up. As for the term Purple, i think it's clear once you listen to the music, really visual stuff. This psychedelic take on dubstep is here to stay.

Ginz's take on the current state of Purple:

Ginz- Spring 2011 Post Purple Mix

Older purple bass:

Joker and Ginz- Purple City

Joker- Psychedelic Runway

Zero 7- Everything Up (Joker and Ginz Remix)

Incredible video for the Everything Up remix:

Clouds is the name of the Scottish duo that have taken the electro scene by storm, (pun not initially intended). They recently quit their jobs at Macdonalds, graduated from highschool, and are now making the crunchiest bass music full time. Fake Blood was the first to pick them up on his label Blood Music. They are also releasing an EP on Turbo Rec. entitled "Numbers". Simply explosive. check it...

Turbo 096 | Clouds - Numbers EP by turborecordings

Clouds- Numbers

Fake Blood's take on this remix-"this tune drops..." Drops indeed.
Coin Operated Boy- Trust Me (Clouds Remix)


Brand new and incredibly satisfying video from Toronto's Autoerotique. "Turn Up The Volume" is now out on Dim Mak alongside "Freak" and "Apollo", which are similar rave monsters, full of the beefy synths and chunky beats we have come to expect. Get the "Freak" EP here.
