J Plates and Marc:One are in the Dojo spotlight today with a wicked slice of dubbed up 170 business, all tape echo, dub guitar and spaced out vibe. Look for this coming Aug 3rd via the J Plates Bandcamp!
Murky vibes from French producers War & Gunston on today’s premiere for the second release on Huski Records! Playing with the slow/fast nature of halftime drum patterns, this one is all sub weight and atmosphere. Watch for the release coming Feb 17th…
J Plates returns to Omni Music with his second EP for the label in only a couple of days, and we’ve got the exclusive on title track Telepathy! Intricate melodies, sultry vocal hooks and chunky breakbeat chops characterise a sublime slice of uplifting, intelligent jungle. Watch out for the EP hitting digital stores from Nov 24th; pre-orders are up now at Beatport.
Monika lands on None60 with more of deep, rolling, hypnotic style…one of our favourite producers continuing to deliver the goods! Hit up their Bandcamp to grab this from tomorrow.
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.
Deep sonics on today’s exclusive as Johnathan Thomas drops new music for US thoroughbred stable Onset Audio. Rolling breaks, deep bass, but layered with creative melodic touches and unusual percussion make for a hypnotic journey; this one definitely isn’t about the dancefloor, and it’s all the better for it. Watch out for the release coming June 14th at all the usual stores.
Russian imprint KOS.MOS.MUSIC are back in our exclusive hotseat today as we present the premiere of Electrosoul System – Blinded Justice! Taken from the forthcoming Deep Structures Part Two LP, this is a hypnotic, minimal roller with a delicious progression; definitely less is more vibes on this one. Watch out for the LP coming April 28th at Bandcamp…
Moody vibes as Johnathan Thomas and Legal team up for today’s premiere! Taken from Fragmented’s forthcoming Shards II EP, this one combines hypnotic melodies with jungle tinged breaks and weighty bass modulations…tasty business! Watch out for the EP coming Apr 29th at all good stores.
One of our favourite imprints returns to the Dojo premiere spotlight; The Dreamers are back at it and this time we’ve got the exclusive on Manic Culture from London producer Trex. Harnessing a bubbling synth melody and playful basslines against a backbone of 2-step D&B goodness, this one sizzles along nicely. Watch out for the EP coming 4th December exclusive at Beatport…
We’ve been big fans of Monika’s music ever since we heard his early output for Ingredients, so we’re extremely pleased to serve up the premiere of one of his new beats for Soulvent! Double Down showcases the man’s talent for hypnotic melodies and crispy breakbeats, evolving from a low start into chaotic amens and increasingly rapid lead flourishes. Sick! Look for this one dropping Friday 23rd via all the usual outlets.
