US legend Karl K returns with a new EP this month, channelling struggles with his mental and physical health into his music following a series of strokes in 2017. The raw energy and sci-fi sound design of his productions from the early 2000s is still present today and still just as compelling…check it out and be sure to hit up the Miracle Drug Recordings Bandcamp to grab a copy from May 28th!
Another month rolls on past which means only one thing…Hex returns with the usual selection of beats and bass. New music inside from Dedman, Break, Myselor, Artsea, Jaise, Soul Intent, Pacific and many more!
High energy selections from one of Scotland’s best DJs as we welcome Anikonik to the Dojo decks! As a resident selector for Electrikal and Junglism, Kara has built a fearsome reputation playing to big crowds both North and South of the border, and we’re expecting to hear big things over the coming years as she hones her production skills under the EQ50 Mentorship program with the mighty RAM Records.
Her Dojo mix delves deep in the crates, blending classic selections, hidden gems and up to the minute bangers across dark tech, jungle-tinged steppers and heavy neurofunk…serious business. 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.
Ever wanted a mix of pretty much every single Kemal / Rob Data / Konflict track ever? Well German super-fan DJ Mix (5000) has you covered! Mixed live across various club sessions in Mannheim from 2012-14, this 6 hour compilation is the deepest of dives through an impressively consistent discography and features many lesser-known gems from the legendary duo. Sick selections!
Kemal’s return to the scene continues! Following the release of a slew of remasters and a handful of new tracks via the Kemal & Rob Data Bandcamp, the neurofunk pioneer touches down on Bad Taste with a fresh remix for Trilo and Vegas.
This new take eases off on the raw bassline aggression of the 2019 original, focusing instead on a hypnotic synth lead for maximum earworm energy, lending a taste of old-school rave to the modern D&B sound. Delicious and tantalising…here’s hoping for plenty more where this came from. Check out the track below and hit up the Bad Taste store to pre-order a copy right now – the remix drops Apr 30th.
Hex returns to the Dojo decks with an hour of brand new beats! Fresh tracks inside from NC-17 & Dauntless, Don Piper, Flava D, Villem & Alpha Rhythm and many more, plus dubs from Shudder and The Faraday.
Black Sun Empire’s early output holds a very special place for a lot of D&B heads of a certain age, an exciting time when the relatively nascent neurofunk style was developing in interesting new directions, and the Dutch trio’s trance-infused take on the sound captured imaginations and dancefloors alike. Nearly twenty years on from the release of their debut Driving Insane LP they announced a remix contest, allowing producers the chance to provide fresh takes on these yesteryear classics with the stems to no less than five tracks from the album. But would these new remixes do the originals justice?
Thankfully the competition inspired some superb work and the resulting remix EP provides varied and entirely worthy adaptations of the source material. Myselor’s contest-winning take on Breach opens the EP, retaining the recognisable twin-leads of the original but imbuing them with additional melodic elements that utterly change the vibe of the track. Brooding and atmospheric is replaced by uplifting and heroic, elevating the feeling to truly epic levels.
Russian scene stalwart EastColors delivers a respectful take on title track Driving Insane, keeping the flavour intact while providing a modern switch on the drums and bassline elements with a touch of foghorn for good measure. Australian duo V O E serve up the heaviest dancefloor number with a mashup of Don’t You and Stasis, landing the punches with their aggressive modern neuro sound.
Rounding out the EP, Waeys dives deep into hypnotic territory with unusual rhythms and driving drums on his experimental remix of Stasis. Finally Rillium gives us a short and sweet 3-minute take on Arrakis which crescendos into intricate drumwork and pulsing synths, fading as quickly as they rise.
Varied and exciting reworks from all concerned; the Driving Insane Remixes EP is out now at Beatport and available to stream on the usual platforms.
Spring rolls around and Hex is back on the decks with the usual monthly selection, this time featuring new music from Monika & Akuratyde, Evolved, Kray, Subp Yao, Krypta, Break and many more!
