Exit Records – Mosaic Volume 2

28 deep and intelligent drum n bass tracks for $9.99! I stumbled upon this incredible EP released by Dbridge’s Exit Records label when a track that I have been waiting for appeared in my soundcloud feed, Beastie Respond’s One Last Minute. I quickly realized that most of this EP was showcased by D-Bridge in his recent Resident Advisor podcast mix  – making the purchase of this entire EP a no brainer.

 

 

The link to purchase the EP through iTunes is here, and the D-Bridge Resident Advisor podcast can be downloaded here.

Meat Katie – Bizarre is Beautiful

I must admit, I haven’t checked out the Breakbeat scene in quite some time, but this recent release by Meat Katie is quite the heavy duty dance floor smasher. A proper club sound system could do this huge track some justice!

Streaming Audio Server Software for Internet Radio Broadcasting

I don’t know why I didn’t think of this a long time ago. With a little basic computer knowledge, you can take the audio coming out of your PC and stream it live to the interweb, for free. Post the link to your social networking feed and throw a live interactive twist with commentary.

I haven’t tested the software for bandwith stability (the zero people listening to my stream now have yet to crash the server), but you can get the software here:

Review of the Transit One release by d&b label Dispatch Recordings

The Dispatch Recordings record label released a compilation album last week that needs to be heard by every serious drum & bass fanatic, entitled Transit One.

Many of the 15 tracks on this release went into my digital crate, as I was previewing the album track by track at Beatport.com, here. Not my favorite website to purchase the actual tracks from (sorry Beatport, your prices can be beat), but their website interface and navigation is top notch.

The tracks on this release aren’t full of the generic sample loops you hear, but rather filled with intelligent production and creative sampling, like in the track Clone, for example. The stabbing sub-bass line is layered with something I can describe as a typewriter, and timed to sound like typing. Great track.

But when an old and familiar sample is used, it’s done really well, like in the track Monkey Business, that begins with a subtle 303 bassline stab. The tight breakbeat is accentuated by the delicate synth cymbal, and the dark breath-like samples and deep sub bass pull everything together. Excellent track, in my opinion.

The release is balanced out by some liquid vibes and female vocals like in Mistakes, and some MC lyricism like in the tracks Structure and Red Mist. Got something for everybody in here.

Check this album out. No cheesy progressive chords or bubbly repetitive baselines here, just serious breaks and deep basslines done proper.

More sound samples and suggested link for purchasing are on their soundcloud page here.
