BC bass music creators Daega Sound prepare for their newest release with NYC future dub label TUBA. The release, set to drop September 15th on 12″ vinyl and digital, features three stellar tracks which clearly demonstrate the creative talent held by brothers Ben and Josh Searles aka Daega Sound.
Each track featured on the EP has its own unique blend of sound while together they create a fully complete release. Technical drumming drives the tunes while deep sub bass and curious atmospherics lay the ground work. Intelligent melodies carry us home.
Have a listen to the preview here and be sure to grab a copy on digital or vinyl when it drops next month. Also, be sure to check out more from TUBA NYC. These guys are really doing some exciting things. Their catalogue includes releases from J:Kenzo, Truth, Compa, DJG, Moldy, Juss B, Subreachers, Prism, AxH, & D-Operation Drop, among others.

This is one of the sickest beat tapes I’ve heard in a while. The paris based beat community goes through trap, juke, a few different house styles with this release and showcases some seriously talented producers.
Man.Amen is bringing in the low end you’ve been missing throughout this high energy summer with a 45 minute long deep dubstep mix. Featuring artists such as Michael Red, J. Hanna, Self Evident, Truth, LX One, Alpha Steppa, and J: Kenzo, the Celestial Ion mix is built for those with subs. Low frequency 140bpm music has a special place in the EDM scene today and there are a number of people, Man.Amen being one of them, who are really pushing to keep the sound alive.
Big up all the artists featured in this mix, and big up Man.Amen of Ganjaology for putting this smooth 45 minute mix together complete with a tracklist and free download so you can take it with you wherever you are!
