Soul Defiance lands on Addictive Behaviour with a sick new EP and we’re hyped to have the premiere of Roller 123! Seriously rude basslines, rolling drums and jazz sax combine for a tune that provides the perfect mix of screwface inducing weight and musical chops. Look out for this dropping exclusively at Beatport from Aug 3rd, with other outlets following Aug 10th.
With the release of Dojo Mix Series #99 earlier this month, we felt it was time for a new lick of paint. The Dojo Mix Series is dead…long live the Dojo Guest Mix. New artwork, new mixes, same quality vibes from underground producers large and small. Delivering the first of the new series is German production duo Smuskind. With releases for imprints like Addictive Behaviour and Drum Army, these boys know their way around a tough roller…
The guest mix features a punchy 30 minute selection including plenty of their own productions alongside cuts from Talkre, Nemy, Amoss, Monty and more…deep, dark and dangerous. 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.
Addictive Behaviour roll out the fourth volume of their Rotation LP series this week with a huge selection of tracks from producers across the D&B spectrum, and today’s premiere comes from that collection. Tephra & Arkoze deliver a sublime tech groove powered by sharpened percussion and warping bass vibrations…deadly! Look out for the whole album dropping today at the usual digital stores.
Unbelievably hyped to welcome the mighty SCAR to our premiere spotlight today as the duo take on Lao Wai & LaMeduza’s new track for Addictive Behaviour, Tie Me Up. Delivering the customary scuzzy tech bass and razor sharp breaks while retaining the soulful vocal of the original, this is a vintage dark roller; yes yes. Look for the release (which also features a dangerous Philth remix alongside the two wicked originals) from Sep 16th at Beatport, with other platforms following on the 30th.
Wreckless lands on Addictive Behaviour with a wicked new EP this month so naturally we had to grab an exclusive…the man himself has a few words for us on the track which provide some insight into its creation to boot. Check that out below and watch out for the release dropping Aug 5th at Beatport.
‘Disco Dub’ is a homage to old pirate radio and the synths in house music. A friend of mine from uni used to make the most awesome house music in the room above mine, it was honestly incredible. This track is just trying to get those house music sounds from a decade previous into a D&B arrangement. The whole tune sounds really old, the breaks all rattle, and the resonances are harsh, most of the synths are recorded as live jams and this gives it the loose, older style feeling for me. Long live MIDI.
Shodan continues his excellent run of releases with a new release on Addictive Behaviour alongside Cosmology, and featuring the soulful vocal stylings of Ella Sopp. Uplifting without straying into cheesy territory, this is infectious dancefloor D&B at it’s best! Watch out for the single (including VIP and Zero T Remix) coming 22nd April on Beatport exclusive and 6th May worldwide.
OaT lands on Addictive Behaviour this month with a wicked new EP so naturally we had to grab a premiere, and today we present the exclusive on Hostile. Living up to its name, this is a gritty tech roller with the atmosphere dialled up to eleven, and it’s a threatening beast to put it mildly. Look out for this one coming to Beatport on March 18th with all other stores following April 1st.
How time flies! It seems like only yesterday we received the first Addictive Behaviour release in the Dojo inbox, but 2018 sees the label celebrating five years in the game, and their output has never been stronger. To mark the occasion they’ve dropped a massive compilation LP featuring twenty three brand new tracks alongside fourteen classics from the back catalogue, so we thought it mighty appropriate to ask the label bosses for their Top 5 from the Addictive vault. Read on for their choices…
The latest from one of our favourite labels here at Dojo HQ takes things in a slightly different direction compared to their usual fare as Addictive get in on the summer feeling with a lush melodic roller from Seibel. The German producer layers majestic synths over rolling beats for a spacey, uplifting tune with enough punch for the dancefloor and enough thought for the living room. Vibes for days. Look for this dropping Jul 16th exclusively at Beatport with all other stores following two weeks later…
London heads Sweetpea and Sicknote team up in the studio for our latest exclusive, laying down a tech-edged drumfunk riddim with tons of atmosphere and seriously tight percussive chops. Sick track! Look for this one coming on Addictive Behaviour’s brand new Rotation Part Three LP; the album drops at Beatport on Monday with full release coming two weeks after.
