We’re big fans of Beat Machine Records here at DNB Dojo so naturally we were well on board with helping them give away a copy of their latest Swinging Flavors vinyl 7″. Featuring a sick jungle/footwork crossover from Itoa and an equally tight remix from Astophonica artist Sully on the flip, this is more essential breakbeat business from one of the most exciting labels in the scene!
To be in with a chance of winning, all you have to do is like the DNB Dojo Facebook page, like the Beat Machine Facebook page, and send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with your name & address and the subject line “Swinging Flavors Competition”. The lucky winner will be drawn on Feb 22nd.
Beat Machine return with another top notch release from an artist pushing the electronic sound in exciting new directions at the fringes of D&B, Footwork and Hip-hop. The beats on display here are almost impossible to pigeonhole; swinging from warped R&B and LA Bass to Trap and Footwork and taking in all kinds of influences on the way, this is quite the melting pot of sonic flavours.
Highlights for us at the Dojo came on the short and sweet footwork shenanigans of Lookin Good (those delicious hat/snare rolls), Dead Fingaz‘ swaggering bass and weird’n’wonderful sampling, and the helter skelter junglism of Ticklish’s remix of Manual. If you like your beats forward thinking you should definitely check this one out…seriously lush synth work and a truly unique style throughout.
Unfortunately you can only hear a single track for the moment, so have a listen to When The Night Is Over below and hit up the Beat Machine Bandcamp to preorder the EP now – it drops on vinyl and digital from May 21st.
