Once again its time for my monthly top ten and just to let y all know my list is by no way dictated by records sales or any other political bullshit. I make my top ten on what gets best reaction from my crowd and what also is bumped most in my ride. This months top ten covers everything from drum n bass music from around south east asia, uk dubstep and of even a bit of uk house flava.
artist title Label
1 Caspa – everybodies talking no one is listening LP – Fabric
This release needs needs no introduction as it is already huge amongst the wobbly bassline massive. The LP release is 6 tracks strong, it also features some super duper heavy weight collaborations with D1, Dynamite MC and Beezy. This release is a must buy for any bass head!
2 Javabass – Homegrown compilation – Javabass
South Asian underground music is still has a while to fully develop and mature, but hey we’ve only been doing this for a very short time so who can blame us! I’ve met the Java bass crew many years ago and with time there tunes have developed and matured into fine works of sonic art. The Homegrown compilation has proved that Indonesia is at the top of there beat making game all that’s waiting now is for them to unleash there music to the rest of the world.
3 Jakes – In the place to be – Hench
This wobbly bass monster released on Jake’s own Hench recordings. This track is originally featured as a b side track, but for some strange reason I am completely in love with this tune. I reckon it should be good to drop this during peak hours or a room full of starry eyed ravers haha. Mental!
4 Serial Killaz – Mash u Down – Ganja records
Good to see one of my favourite labels spring back into action again. This release sees Serial Killaz pumping out some pure dubwise/dancehall vibes. Nice tunes for the ladies and the rude bwoyz as well. I ‘ve been dropping this all the time on my radio show.
5 DJ Wash – Reverse swing – Dub
Wicked dubstep from the kongkrete bass badboy DJ Wash. Once again this tune proves that south east asia is on its way up! More tunes from Wash coming soon.
6 Rogues state – Opportunity – Argon
Wicked collabo with one my fav producers (Rogue state) and one of my fav Mc’s (bongo chilli). Taking a leave from intricate housey doings Rogue States provides us this time with a simple but groovy skankin’ riddim.
7 Gargamel – Switch board – Halo beats
Trippy wobbly bassline acid music is the best way I can explain this tune. Can’t wait to drop it this saturday!
8 Efdemin – Acid bells( martyn rmx) – curle
Wicked remix from Martyn. This time going for a slower but more sosphisticated UK house feel. I ‘ve still yet to drop this on unsuspecting headz but I’m this will get em going.
9 DeadMaus – Remember( rmx) – Mau5trap
I’m not a big trance or electro fan, but the vocal on this track will get ya even if you like it or not. A side is remixed by J Majik and b is remixed by Caspa. Both sides will do it for any crowd, so just choose your weapon of choice.
10 DJ Die – Clear sky’z ( break remix) – Clear sky’z
Wicked remix of a dnb classic! This time with Break on remix duties and definitely paying nuff respect to the original version by still keeping the main elements of the track there but just beefing up the bassline to keep tings up to date in 2009. A must have !
