DNB Dojo Mix Series 62: Lakeway

We’re exceptionally pleased to welcome one of our favourite artists of the last few years to the Dojo decks as Lakeway steps up to deliver our latest exclusive mix! With releases for Diffrent Music and Sweetbox and appearances on Hospital and Med School, Lakeway has been at the forefront of a wave of experimental yet dancefloor-focused beats and represents one of the most exciting sounds in the 170BPM arena.

It’s exactly this sort of sound he brings to the mix, blending influences from grime, trap, R&B and bassline with jungle and D&B for a breakneck selection of raved-up, wonked-out beats. Expect plenty of Lakeway bootlegs and productions from the Diffrent stable alongside more traditional bangers and rollers from the likes of Skeptical and Rockwell. Serious selections! As always you can check out the mix via Soundcloud below or head to Youtube or iTunes to stream. You can also grab a download from Google Drive.

UFO! – Hyper Norm [Evol Intent]

Fans of the recent boom in “future jungle” will definitely be into this one; Evol Intent Recordings present the latest in their intermittent but excellent release schedule with a top class EP from San Francisco producer UFO!

Better known in recent years for lower-tempo bass music and trap beats, UFO! returns to his jungle roots for this EP, keeping things frantic but still melding in plenty of unusual influences from elsewhere in the electronic spectrum.

YGMFU kicks things off with booming bass and classic jungle breaks, while Thing Into My Brain takes cues from footwork with its combination of syncopated sub rhythm and hyperactive vocal cut ups. This one is a proper ear-worm, and the rapidity just makes it all the more infectious.

Logue combines more of that dangerous breakbeat intensity with hip-hop influenced bass vibrations worthy of fellow SF basshead EPROM, leaving Ghost Behaviour to dial things down a notch for a light-edged shuffle with a slightly tropical sound.

Four hyped-up future jungle cuts lovingly sandwiched between spacey intro/outro material makes for a wicked little EP! Here’s hoping we hear more 170 business from UFO! in the future; check out the beats below and hit up your favourite digital store to grab the EP right now.

EPROM – Drone Warfare EP [1985 Music]

Sometimes a new genre or subgenre comes to prominence and it just feels like it was made for an existing artist to slot themselves into, and that couldn’t be more the case when it comes to EPROM and the new wonky, halftime, “20/20” sound that has been emanating from some corners of the D&B scene in recent times. Much as Bassnectar took to dubstep like a duck to water, the halftime style provides a perfect framework for EPROM’s swaggering, low-slung compositions and epic sound design.

His latest EP for Alix Perez’s 1985 Music carries on exactly where previous Shades outings and his recent Samurai EP left off; earth-shattering basslines, weird harmonics, glitchy designs and punchy percussion. Whether it’s on the stalking vibrations of Drone Warfare or the fuzzed out, wonked-up riddims of Raw Data this EP is just straight hench for the entirety of it’s 14 minute duration. Check it out below and hit up the label store to grab it on vinyl or digital right now.
