ED SOLO and STICKYBUDS take this new Sizzla tune for a drum n bass ride. The rasta power runs high on the remix by keeping the reggae roots deep. The production on this track is nothing short of magic: snares are crisp, layered precisely on the rolling bassline.
Stickybuds is also on a bit of a whirlwind tour this spring. I’m particularly stoked to see him in Winnipeg on the last date of the “Springin’ Around The Globe” tour. Catch him if you can – no regrets will be had.
DEEKLINE takes influence from his own roots in the UK Garage scene on this one, putting a fresh spin on that classic 2 step sound. Crisp synths, bouncy bass line, ethereal vocal stabs and slight ragga undertones. In this free download, Deekline offer this sexy 2 step number “Unplugged” as a taste of what to expect from his new label Hot Roxx.
Winnipeg’s own LAMBO has been on the grind for a number of years now, holding prominent residencies, throwing parties, and partnering with a number of the city’s who’s who in our expansive dj community by opening what is arguably the best venue in the city, Union Sound Hall.
Over the last year or so Lambo has made big moves with his brand of clap n bass. In some circles trap is considered a dirty word. Lambo certainly isn’t afraid of rolling in the 100 bpm filth.
Taking disco to new heights, the latest from DCUP has me burning up inside. The single, “Someone Told Me,” comes with remixes from La Felix, Flexcop, Space Jump Salute and Backstroke. Listening to the original, it’s hard to imagine anything wrong with the world – the tune is like the soundtrack to smiles and sunshined.
Swiss duo, FAT SUSHI, are increasingly becoming a go-to source for those deep vibes that straddle the lighter side of garage. The huge, bubbling basslines reflect a clear throwback to warehouse parties of the 90s, combined with soothing sonics for my aging state of mind. In their latest, a remix for MANUEL SAHAGUN, on NHAN SOLO‘s Mother Recordings Fat Sushi give us more of those lush textures with enough wumph to keep me dancing like I was 19 again.
To celebrate their sixth consecutive beatport top 100 release, they’re also giving away ROLAND CLARK‘s a cappella from their single on Suara. Go say hi, and thank them via the links below.
So, ROUTE94 have been on everyone’s hit list, including breakbeat vetrans, FREESTYLERS. Despite the fact that the original hasn’t been released yet, Freestylers took it upon themselves to tweak out a breaky refix. We’re so glad they did because it’s just plain wonderful. Also, it’s a free download.
If you haven’t heard the original yet, you better fix that. After all, it’s only been played over 2 million times. That’s not hyperbole. That’s fact.
