Creepy atmospheres and gritty bass textures on today’s exclusive from German producer dreadmaul! Dropping soon via Leipzig label Boundless Beatz, Vodou Priestress combines a driving halfstep rhythm with layers of distortion, tribal drum fills and spooky leads to conjure some dark magic for the dance. Wicked stuff! Look for this one coming on the Dust & Bones EP from Mar 20th via all good digital stores.
Our latest exclusive comes straight outta Deutschland courtesy of Cologne producer SubMarine and Leipzig label/events collective Boundless Beatz! Nitro combines rich bass, delicate atmospherics and detailed, intricate percussion work for a top slice of thinking-man’s D&B. So lush!
The Dojo Mix Series is back and this time we’ve got German underground producer Dreadmaul in the mix! With releases for the likes of Authentic Music, Boundless Beatz and T3K, Dennis Leick has been carving out quite a reputation as both a producer and DJ, gigging regularly across his native Deutschland.
His mix for DNB Dojo builds slowly from deep halftime numbers through harder techstep and into dangerous, threatening amens including Dojo favourite Destroyer of Worlds. Sick selections!
When you have the audacity to give your track a name like Destroyer of Worlds then you better be bringing something pretty vicious to the table lest your wares fall a bit flat; thankfully Dreadmaul has delivered the goods in spades, hence the track’s selection as this week’s Dojo Damager!
With a nod to classic hardstep from the likes of Evol Intent, Tech Itch and Dom & Roland, this is a dark amen smasher replete with hefty sub and ominous raved up stabs, and it’ll definitely destroy some raves if not any actual worlds. Check out the clip below and hit up Juno to grab a copy right now.
For our last mix of 2015 Boundless Beatz resident and label runner Dubbalot joins the DNB Dojo Mix Series with an 82 minute selection of top notch rollers. With tracks from the likes of Ulterior Motive, Ivy Lab, Chimpo and DLR and of course some cuts from the Boundless Beatz catalogue, Dubbalot’s mix takes us on a journey through the full spectrum of D&B, from dark to light and rolling to more experimental.
The ever prolific Fade just dropped the latest in a steady stream of singles and this time his work has landed on Leipzig label Boundless Beatz. Featuring the instantly memorable futuristic synth play of Taino and deep, tribal percussion of Lo-Fi, it’s another top release from a producer who constantly pushes the boundaries of D&B both on and off the dancefloor.
We wanted to find out a bit more about the inspirations for Fade’s music and what ultimately gets him going in the studio, so we asked him to tell us about it. Read on for the man’s top five in his own words. Continue reading →
