It’s that time once again; Hex is back on the Dojo decks with a fistful of new beats from GEST, Phonograph, Zero T, Radiax, Loxy & Resound, Sleepnet and many more, plus unreleased music from Joakuim and a new track from Hex’s forthcoming EP on Free Love Digi. Check it out!
Based in Galway, Ireland, Rua Sound have been operating for just under five years, but in that relatively short period they’ve already established themselves as purveyors of some of the most exciting sounds in the 170 sphere. The main label plays host to the melting pot of sounds crossing grime, dub, jungle and D&B while sister-imprint Foxy Jangle sprang up to provide more “straight up” jungle outings.
Quality control has been their hallmark on both fronts, with just 11 releases on the main label and 6 more Jangle 12″s, but the results speak for themselves; all killer, no filler. Read on for five of our faves…
Hex returns to the Dojo decks for the first podcast of the year. New music inside from Data 3, Boston, Scartip, Tephra, Qua Rush and many more, plus dubs from Soul Defiance, Patience and an unreleased track from Hex to boot!
Our first label showcase feature of 2021 takes a dive into the discography of Italian electronic label Beat Machine Records. While not exclusively focussed on drum & bass, between their main catalogue and the excellent Swinging Flavors 7″ series they’ve played host to a number of excellent hybrid bangers, melding footwork, jungle, D&B and bass for some really innovative releases. Read on for our favourites from the BM vaults…
St.Iff lands on Voyage Music with a wicked new single this month, and we’re hyped to bring you the premiere of Seven Circles! Blending hefty techstep bass growls with an unusual arrangement and some deft melodic touches, this feels like a throwback to the mid 2000s neurofunk of artists like Decimal, in the best possible way. Check it out, and look for the single coming Jan 15th at digital stores!
We’ve got a bumper podcast selection for you just in time for Christmas! Hex returns to the Dojo decks with nearly two hours of fresh releases on the final Dojocast of 2020. Beats inside from Quadrant & Iris, Andy Scopes & Madcap, Grey Code, Artsea, Xenon, Koan Sound and many more…enjoy!
Today’s premiere comes from Sun People who brings us a storming new cut from their brand new EP on Leipzig experimental imprint Defrostatica. Driving 4×4 kicks and an array of skittering percussion power the tune along with dark bass vibrations and floaty high end all adding to the sense of high energy hypnosis. Wicked vibe! Look for this one coming Dec 18th on vinyl and digital…
Johnathan Thomas teams up with LeCoughSki for a new cut on Inform Records sub-label Reform Music on today’s exclusive! Dubby textures, subtle melodic trills and a faintly tropical vibe characterise a top-notch tune. Look for this one coming Dec 23rd at Beatport, with all other stores following Jan 6th.
Winter might be drawing in but we’ve got loads of heat in the mix once again at Dojo HQ! Hex drops 90 minutes of new music for the penultimate episode of the year, with new tracks inside from Chase & Status, Gydra, Tokyo Prose, Altern 8, Duoscience, Wardown, and of course Hex’s latest releases for Detached Audio and Nurtured Beatz. Enjoy!
