The LWP004 Release off of Low Up Records is a great EP to say the least. This London Based producer, has put together a nice, smooth set of club tunes that have a very melodic feel. All of the percussion throughout the EP is crisp and clean, with elements of both electronic and organics within them.
The ethnic vibes on the track entitled “Prism” really come through clearly with the eastern sounding melody, as well as what sounds like some sort of asian horn or flute. The title track for the EP – “Quartz”, its a very interesting tune. It starts off very minimalistic, but in a good way. The strange vocal sample bounces around until the track breaks down into the nice lead which was introduced in the beginning. The dimension that the producer has placed behind the synth line creates such a full feel. As it moves forward it builds with moving sounds and interesting synth lines as well. It ends up feeling very full with different instrumentation and leaves you wanting to get on the dance floor.
My personal favorite is the track “Soundboy”. This one is sooo smooth. That vocal sample is so sick, straight up. The sample teamed with that synth stab, drops the song seamlessly into another dancey club anthem. It’s definitely the highlight of the album for me, and the EP as a whole is a winner.
It’s nice to hear original vibes as always, and Murlo has delivered exactly that. Check the tunes below and go support Murlo and Low Up Recs by grabbing this EP if you get down with it too!
Yes! I’m loving that the deep dubstep community is still going strong. This pulsing subby tune is created by none other than the man Squarewave, and it was released yesterday on BOKA Records. Gwan and grab the release! Along side of this tune is two VIPs, one of which is done by the artist’s brother, Sukh Knight. Big up all involved with this one, check the tune below and get your deep sub skankin shoes on.
The UK producer Widowmaker just released an awesome EP less than a week ago on N-Type’s Label Wheel & Deal. Each of the three tracks have their own sound but keep the producers vibe consistantly through it (which one would hope every EP has). The A side of the release is the track below titled Tunneling Wurm, and its one I’ve been mixing into my sets since I bought it. I hadn’t heard anything from the Farnborough producer until about two weeks ago when I found a free download of his Badman Place Remix on the Hedmuk Blog. This guy definitely is producing some deep, heavy sounds with a crisp mix. Check the tune below and if you feel so inclined grab his EP!
If you like deep grimey dancefloor killers, Distance is definitely an artist to mention. His grungy bass lines make one cringe and dance at the same time. This tune has such a big sound with a beautiful dark melody to it. It is set to release on Distance’s label Chestplate at some point this year, however it does not have a date yet. Check out this one as well as the tune that will be along side it on the CHST020 release!
