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.

Commodore 64 8-bit synth emulator

This is a free VST plug-in for Windows that reproduces the retro 8-bit gaming sound of the classic Commodore64 computer.

There are ways to create the 8-bit sound by using converters and such, but it doesn’t get any easier (or more fun) than with this plug-in that you load up to any VST compatible music production software.

Visit de la Mancha’s website to download the FREE plug-in.

Now this isnt an example produced by the plug-in, but if you’re a old school video game geek like me, you get the idea…

…or how about a new Contra boss level soundtrack 🙂

Rockwell – Underpass

What to call this type of music…. Ambient? Minimal? Dub? Drum & Bass?

Whichever one of many genres this track might fall into, it is one thing. Very good. Well produced piece using techy blips and grinds with a very mellow rolling bassline. Filters and pans layer out this track nicely. See if you can catch the reverse snare sprinkled in there. Enjoy!

DJ/Producer spotlight – Spectrasoul

This duo from Brighton, England, has emerged onto the drum and bass scene in 2006, not fully coming to the forefront until 2008. Their ingenuity takes the drum & bass genre to the next level and makes them one of today’s top artists.

Signed with many top labels such as Metalheads, Subtitles and Shogun Audio, there is hardly a track they produce that isn’t a total banger on the dancefloor.

“The Four Points” – is a ragga jungle joint with a nice sub-bass line and a cymbal heavy breakbeat. Ragga rhymin included, of course.

“Alibi” – is one of my favorite liquid drum and bass tunes with a steady vibrating bassline that rrrrrolls right through the track. The piano chords are beautiful and well placed vocal samples set off the track.

Check them out all over the interweb, or just hit them up on their myspace page.

Junior Boys – Like a Child (Carl Craig remix)

Carl Craig can be regarded as one of the forefathers of the Detroit techno music scene. Here is a track that became the icing on the cake of his long career when it was nominated for a Grammy in 2007. Please enjoy!

DJ/Producer Spotlight – John B

Every now and then, I will post a bio of some of my favorite talent in the electronic music industry.  Notable and noteworthy producers will be given attention to as well.

So for my first artist bio on my blog I want to introduce you to…

John B

This producer has been one of my favorites for almost 10 years now. He has been producing and remixing tracks for many years, spanning many different genres of electronic music. His career started in producing drum & bass, more recently progressing to the styles of techno and electro (I will touch on genres later).  His more recent remixes and DJ sets have punk and retro-rock influences, making me like his style even more.

He is very much plugged into the social networking scene, twittering, podcasting, myspacing and facebooking (if those are even real words) all of his activities.  He also has a radio show on Sirius XM satellite radio, called Redux.  His website john-b.com is loaded with social network links, tour photos & dates, and most importantly, downloadable podcasts of pretty much everything he does.

I highly recommend giving John B a listen, especially if you are into techno and drum & bass. He is truly a talent that I have enjoyed for a long time.
