So absolutely stoked to see STICKYBUDS again. The last time he was here he nearly tore the roof off. This trip should be no different, and knowing his Winnipeg show is his last stop on a massive tour, I have no doubt he’s going to give us something special.

It’s gonna sound something like…
Mega thanks to BassFace Entertainment for having me play (as half of The Shake, the other half being LOTEK).

DEEKLINE twists this seminal 90s R&B tune from Mary J Blige into a drum n bass workout. The garage-tinged bassline and crisp snares do wonders on this track. It’s easy to imagine crowds going mental to this one. Listen and grab it for free.

B-SIDE and DETTA have more than a good thing going with their latest project. The pair are delivering three, three-track EPs for free. In their second installment they use a classic sample from Jurassic 5, cut up for a heavy dose of mid-tempo bass.
The second track on this EP samples both Pink Floyd and Mary J Blige combined with a massive drum n bass influence in the form of Ray Keith’s “Sing Time,” for yet another mid-tempo track.
B-Side and Detta up the tempo and push out more basslines, twisting Caro Emerald’s swing tune into a drum n bass stomper to keep the crowds jumpin’.

Super stoked for the next Sanctuary. It might have something to do with the fact that I get to play, but also because it’s one of the most intimate club nights Winnipeg has going.

The evening will be curated by a few old timers. KRISCO might play some jungle and drum n bass, or he could play the 4/4 rhythms. Who knows.
ALEXANDER KRYGSVELD, who regularly pays tribute to the underground at Back2House, will grace the decks. A set from ANDREW YANKIWSKI, producer and audio engineer from Precursor Productions, promises to bring sonic delights as well.
I’m having a difficult time figuring out what I’m going to play. The general theme will be deep in sonics and may go something like this…
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.
Grab the tune on Beatport or Addictech.
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.

It’s no secret, TIMOTHY WISDOM has more talent in the fingernail of his pinky than a number producers. On top of his remix and production skills, dood is like a jedi master behind the decks, plus he’s been known to cut a rhyme or two, AND from his last offering we know he can croon smoother than Michael Bublé submerged in a tub of cocoa butter.
While it’s common for Mr. Wisdom to rock the mid-tempo flavours, he also likes to ramp up the bpms like he did for fellow Vancouverites, DELHI 2 DUBLIN. Hand picked for this absurdly inexpensive remix package, Wisdom twists the throttle on this drum n bass remix for a good, old-fashioned dust up.
Check out the other remixes (9 tracks for 7 bucks!)

There’s been little rest for those in the Ground Level headquarters. The latest comes from FISSO & SPARK, who took a break from working on their long player to work on a collaboration with US rapper BBK. The original bounces off of a simple break and smiling synth work. The duo recruited the seminal Fingerlickin’ legends, DRUMATTIC TWINS who rattle the dust off of their 808 for a stomper of a remix. SASHA KHAN cranks up the bpm for an uplifting drum n bass ride.
Grab the EP on beatport.
