New Drum & Bass mix: Kongkast # 239 – feat. DIGITAL (Ingredients Records, Metalheadz, Function / UK)

*** Bookings info ***
We have just been told that DIGITAL is currently based in Thailand! For our promoter friends in Asia and around, this is your chance to pick up Digital while he’s in the area. Please get in touch with http://bassic.co/ or Digital on facebook for more information.

Stephen Carr a.k.a. Digital is one of the UK’s well-respected & inspirational drum and bass producers with a career spanning 18yrs and a seminal catalogue of original & innovative releases to date.

His signature bass-lines & radicalized dubbed out sounds reach back to his childhood seeing his Father run his own sound-system for nearly thirty years in Ipswich, UK. The moniker ‘Digital’ was given to Steve by the Ashanti Sound system immediately recognizing his technical ability operating a sound system at the age of 14 also relating the moniker to the future, his youth and the emergence of the digital age & technology. It wasn’t long before Digital had a sound-system of his own in 1991, with the ‘rave scene’ growing in & around Ipswich he started to hire-out his system to various promoters. This is when he really got interested in the rave scene and its music triggering his curiosity that drew his attention to production…

Digital’s 18yrs of production consist of 4LP’s & countless 12” & EP’s on his own label imprint; Function records & co-owned imprint Phantom Audio as well as some of the finest Drum n Bass labels to date; Metalheadz, Exit, Timeless, 31 Records, C.I.A, Photek Productions, Innerground, Commercial Suicide, Reinforced Records, Violence, Chronic & Hardleaders the list goes on! His debut release ‘Touch Me’ on Timeless in 1995 was followed up by a 12” ‘Niagra/Down Under’ on Metalheadz 1995. But it was his third release that really set the marker for Digital ‘Spacefunk’ a limited edition 12” on Timeless Recordings 1995. Such a unique track in its time and so well received it got re-released with remixes from Goldie, Photek & Doc Scott. Followed up by a 12” for Photek Productions in 1997 ‘Lower Depths/SubZero’.

1998 saw the birth of the infamous Phantom Audio imprint co-owned with producer & friend Spirit It arose from their mutual desire to have their own base where there was no set musical agenda. Soon after the duo debuted with the release of ‘Phantom Force’ this track became a d’n’b anthem worldwide. Still to this day 14yrs after its release you can still ‘Phantom Force’ being featured in sets from the likes of; Andy C, Friction, Goldie & DJ Marky also getting licensed to numerous Dance Music CD compilations. The imprint Phantom Audio went on to home some formative releases from the duo alongside a selection of solo cuts. March 2013 sees the duo teaming up once again for the first time in 10yrs to re-launch the label.

Looking back through Digital’s discography he has had so many cuts that still stand the test of time from the mighty ‘Deadline’ on 31 records to the monster ‘Waterhouse Dub’ on Function and ‘Gateman’ on Phantom Audio. 2002 saw the release of his debut LP ‘Dubzilla’ on Function 10 tracks of pure D’n’B; 8 tracks in his own true imitable dub-fashion + 2 tracks from with Phantom Audio label partner Spirit. Whilst he continued to release music in mid April 2002 Digital teamed with his long-time friend and business partner Brillo in setting up the Timeless Music Group handling all forms of label management for 12 independent D&B labels. Helping to A&R and support artists like Amit, Dylan, Outrage, Tactile, Chris SU also collaborating with Total Science on various projects. Digital also worked closely with 2 of New Zealand’s biggest electronic acts Salmonella Dub & Concord Dawn helping both acts to develop their European market further with tour management, tour support, European distribution & marketing. In addition to DJ’ing throughout the UK, Europe, Japan, New Zealand & USA

New DRUM & BASS mix: Kongkast # 237 – feat. THE INVADERZ (Metalheadz, CIA, Commercial Suicide / UK)

Since the year 2000, the London based trio The Invaderz have featured on many of Drum & Bass’ biggest and most renowned labels. The Invaderz consists of cousins Matt Lord and Leo Grant, alongside long time friend Darrell James. Darrell met Matt whilst working in the record distribution industry and was soon after introduced to Leo, and this is when the Invaderz in its final incarnation was formed. The breakthrough event came when they won a competition to feature on Grooveriders legendary Radio 1 show as unsigned artists. Within weeks of their music being played on the show they were signed to CIA and Metalheadz. Known for their hard breaks, big bass, layered strings and versatility there isn’t a style of Drum n Bass the guys haven’t explored. The testament to this is the wide and varied list of top labels their productions have graced. Metalheadz, Liquid V, SoulR, Horizons and Commercial Suicide to name just a few.
As well as writing Drum n Bass Matt has been a founder member of Bugz in The Attic, the broken beat pioneers, and worked on projects with the likes of Dego and Kaidi Tatham as well as composing commercials for top multinationals such as Cadburys, Barclays, Gillette and Nokia to name but a few of his clients.
Darrell has worked in various aspects of the music industry, working occasionally in record stores, working in record distribution at Jumpstart and playing on various pirate radio stations across London. His first full release was in 1996 on his friend Ray Keiths label Penny Black, under the moniker “Uncharted Territory” a track that was engineered by Daz I Kue, also of Bugz fame.
Leo (Dr Leo Grant!) earned his PhD in classical composition studying with Michael Finnissy at Southampton University where he is a teaching fellow, he is currently teaching music technology to children in East London, whilst also doing freelance commercial work composing, arranging and typesetting for TV, film and commercials. With their long overdue debut album about to be set free into the world The Invaderz are ready to get back amongst it !

New Footwork mix: Kongkast # 235 – feat. BANZULU (None60, SUB:CULTURE / Tallahassee, United States)

Forming together like a two-man Voltron, Banzulu is the project of Florida-based DJs/Producers Abe Vazquez and Caleb Selman. As founding members of the SUB:CULTURE collective, they have been pushing bass-heavy sounds in their home state for several years, and have been instrumental in advancing the footwork sound there. First surfacing on Phyla Digital’s “Jack to Juke” Compilation earlier this year, Banzulu are just now beginning to make moves in the scene. Their sound is heavily influenced by the growing footwork movement, but they also draw from UK bass music sounds (including Grime, Garage and Jungle), as well as regional influences such as Southern Hip Hop, Chopped and Screwed, etc.

Many thanks to BANZULU for this exclusive mix for Kongkretebass Kongkast!

New Bass Music mix: Kongkast # 229 – feat. SILENT DUST (none60 Records/ UK)

And we’re back this week with one of our favorite duo in the bass music scene – Andy Hobbs and Dan Blishen aka Silent Dust. The duo has been making some serious waves in the various BPM movement such as their unique cross genre between Jungle and Juke.
Having released under the  Hobzee & Zyon Base alias for a number of years in the Drum & Bass scene, they have shifted over to the Silent Dust moniker in recent times. With this change, it gave them more freedom to break free of the fixed tempo styles of DnB, and and outcome has been fantastic.

Their label hosts a number of very talented artists such as Sinistarr, Zilla Rocca, and remixes in the form of Calibre and Intalex.
Within this Kongkast, they included couple of forthcoming releases on none6 Records, such as Sinistarr ft Brownstudy – Regrets, and Banzulu – Nobody Move. 
You can check out their releases on the non60 Records bandcamp site, which also host an exclusive release “STATIC”, a collection of the duo’s production exclusive on their Bandcamp Site.

A Massive Thank You to Andy at Silent Dust for taking the time out and sending us this mix!

More info about Silent Dust

Silent Dust is not the beginning or the end of Andy Hobbs and Dan Blishen’s music. It simply represents the summation of the present.

Andy Hobbs and Dan Blishen’s history as releasing artists dates back to 2007/2008 under their original Hobzee & Zyon Base alias. Forging their careers out of the prevalent post liquid sound that earned them releases on Samurai Music, Sgn Ltd, Fokuz Recordings and Influenza Media. Garnering support from some of Drum & Bass’ most prolific DJs and tastemakers, it was under the supportive encouragement of Marcus Intalex that saw them shift towards the Silent Dust moniker.

The decisive move to a new identity facilitated the opportunity to reassess the duo’s approach to music allowing them to break away from creative restrictions of genre and expectation. An emerging self titled album project through 2010 for Marcus Intalex’s Soul:r label promised to be the pinnacle of their career, but was halted due to distribution issues. Fortunately the album survived intact with remixes from Marcus Intalex, Calibre and Om Unit to be realized through the birth of Silent Dust’s own none60 imprint.

The establishment of none60 through necessity is arguably the best thing that could have happened for the production duo, a precursor to their most creatively ambitious work to date. Their time since none60’s birth has seen them remove all limitations of genre, tempo and convention collaborating and remixing with Sinistarr, Selfsays, Zilla Rocca, Altair, Curly Castro, MC DRS, Wale and even some unofficial remixes of Lil B and Nicki Minaj.

Silent Dust are musical story tellers. From “Vostok 1” voyages to the edges of Earth’s atmosphere, the grainy orbit of “Nortvedt Effect” or the power pads of “Population Me” alongside Selfsays, Silent Dust create a narrative that includes the listener as co-traveller in their journey into beyond.

New Bass Music mix: Kongkast # 228 – feat. UPZET (Out of Mind, Lucid Dreaming, Infected / Berlin, Germany)

Since the beginning of the nineties, Upzet is a fan of electronic music. At first he was attracted to Acid and Minimal Techno. 1997, at the age of 16, he discovered his all-consuming passion for drum & bass music and in 1998 he started mixing it. Since this time, DJ Upzet has been constantly motivated to perfect his mixing skills and he attaches great importance to harmony and diversity in all of his sets.

Today, Liquid Funk, Deep, Dark, Tech, Neurofunk and some Jumpup are his usual styles, but mixing Oldskool Jungle and Happybreakbeat also gives him a sense of delight. Sometimes he plays Techno, House and Minimal sets as well.
In 2001, after experiences with various artists, he started organizing drum & bass events. In 2009, Upzet moved to Berlin, where he’s still djing and where he promotes some clubdates like “Out of Mind”, “Step higher”, “Infected”, “Lucid Dreaming” and other special events . In 2010 he founded the Berlin based Out of Mind Crew: Upzet, DJane Cyrilla, Nursa, Stone, Hardy and SolHo, also known as producer-duo Survey. 2015 is when Upzet finally stepped into the world of producing beats, he is currently working on his first set of tracks so watch this space!

Slick Shoota hails from Norway and he’s been gaining momentum in the bass music scene with releases on some of the most respected labels around. His mix of juke, footwork & uk inspired bass music has gained support from Radio 1 tastemaker B Traits to Chicago legends DJ Spinn & DJ Rashad.
Slick Shootas prolific output has led to remix duties for top names like Lindstrom, Kito & Reija Lee, Zebra Katz, and DJ Vadim to name a few.
With his original productions and remixes being released by major players in the game like Mad Decent and Kitsuné, plus support from renowned DJ’s on BBC Radio 1 and Rinse FM on a regular basis, it seems like there’s no stopping Slick Shoota!

Many thanks to SLICK SHOOTA for this exclusive mix!
