Tempo Records have been a steady presence on the scene since 2013, releasing a slow but inspiring selection of releases from the likes of Voyager, DJ Trax, Soul Intent and Digital. 2020 sees new ventures on the horizon including a brand new sublabel called “Speed”. To find out more we grabbed label boss Frodo for a chat…
The latest entry in our exclusive mix series comes from a bona fide scene legend as we welcome DJ Trax to the Dojo decks! With over 25 years experience in the scene and releases for the likes of Moving Shadow, Outsider, Paradox Music and many more, Trax has been plying his breakbeat-driven style across the world and shows no signs of slowing down.
For his Dojo mix Dave has gone in with a selection of drumfunk riddims including cuts from his brand new EP for Tempo and forthcoming music from Djinn, Tim Reaper, Ilk and longtime collaborators Nucleus & Paradox. If you appreciate the art of break chopping then this one is for you!
Hot on the heels of his top new EP for Tempo Records, we grabbed Response and asked him for his Top 5 releases. Check it…
If you’re a fan of the deeper side of D&B then chances are you’ll have come across Pennygiles by now. The Welsh producer has built up an impressive catalogue of liquid rollers over the past few years, gracing the likes of Rubik, Demand, IM:LTD and Fokuz with his emotional styles.
Pennygiles’ latest 12″ for Tempo Records is due to drop very shortly, so we got in touch for a quick chinwag about the inspiration behind the tunes, collaborating with Ed:it and his use of natural breaks.
