Premiere: Kolectiv & MEDIKA – Artillery

Kolectiv & MEDIKA reunite once again on a fresh EP for Diffrent music bringing possibly their hardest hitting collaborations to date. Artillery brings together skittering, off-kilter beat patterns with a huge section of bass weaponry and a generally militant sensibility; seriously dangerous tune!

The Upbeats & Noisia – Shibuya Pet Store [No Sleep Til]

A little while ago, The Upbeats launched a kickstarter for an ambitious project called “No Sleep Til…”. Their plan involved flying to unusual parts of the world with some collaborators and exploring their locales to see how it might influence the music made. Following the success of the fundraising campaign, and with help from Creative New Zealand, the first of the material has surfaced this week featuring regular studio pals Noisia, made on a recent trip to Japan.

Named after one of Tokyo’s busier business districts, Shibuya Pet Store sees both groups of producers easing off their sometimes full-tilt production styles in favour of something a bit more relaxed and unusual. From the weird melodies of the intro into the quirky main riff, this one definitely isn’t a high octane smasher, but the result is one of the most interesting pieces of music to come out of either camp for some time.

We can’t wait to see who else The Upbeats have been working with for the rest of the No Sleep Til… releases, but in the meantime you can check out Shibuya Pet Store below. Hit up your favourite store to grab a copy right now.

Premiere: Monika – Himalaya (Akuratyde Remix)

Monika returns to Soulvent this month with another top single and he’s recruited LA’s Akuratyde for a remix. As you’d expect based on the producer’s previous work for Blu Mar Ten Music, this is a detailed, shimmering rework full of lush synth work and unusual production; imbued with all the emotion of the best liquid tunes but also an experimental streak and unusual percussion. Beautiful! Look for this dropping Friday 7th September at all the usual outlets.

RQ – Season of the Emergence EP [Blu Mar Ten Music]

A new release on Blu Mar Ten Music is pretty much always a cause for celebration, and their latest material from Kiwi producer RQ is no different, though it’s certainly a step away from the label’s usual fare.

Drawing influence from the likes of Photek, Source Direct and Blocks and Escher, RQ’s latest work (ahead of an album due on the label at some point in the future) is tense and ominous. Three of the four tracks are powered by a backbone of intricate percussion, with an array of finely processed breaks skittering in and out of the mixes. Building on top of the militant drum section, there are hints of psychedelia, touches of jazz, and a flirtation with melody that feels faintly threatening. Uplifting liquid this is most certainly not.

We could waffle on about the depth and emotional resonance of the tracks on show here but it feels complex and elusive enough that we’ll never do it justice, so just wrap your ears around the clips below instead. The EP is out now at the Blu Mar Ten Store.

DNB Dojo Mix Series 73: B1tyze

Deeper beats for you all this weekend as B1tyze deliver the latest instalment of our exclusive mix series! Formed of US button pusher B1t Crunch3r and French studio duo Kantyze, B1tyze have been crafting some really unusual leftfield rhythms over the past year with releases for the likes of Onset Audio, Free Love Digi, Keep Deep & Future Follower Records.

Due to geographical separation we couldn’t get all three behind the Dojo decks but rest assured that Jason B1t Crunch3r has delivered a top notch mix representing the sound the trio are pushing right now. Moving through deep halftime, hybrid jungle and full roll tech and featuring material from GREAZUS, Mauoq, Quadrant & Iris and of course a host of their own beats, this one is a proper journey through the 170 sound. Sick!

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.
