V Recordings Release Planet VIP Compilation

Posted: November 26th, 2014

Bryan Gee and Jumpin’ Jack Frost have compiled a diverse collection of 22 previously unreleased tracks, VIPs and remixes from their classic drum & bass labels Liquid V, Philly Blunt and Chronic. The various artists album is entitled Planet VIP.

North Base tackles Dillinja’s “Grimey,” giving the tempo an unexpected switch up. Nu-tone blesses Roni Size’s “Strictly Social,” along with a pretty tasty remix of Roni and DJ Die’s “It’s A Jazz Thing” from Juiceman. VIPs like TC’s take on DJ Krust classic “Maintain,” Critycal Dub’s “Situations,” DJ Chap’s “Like A Fiyah” and Need For Mirrors & HLZ “Greazy” VIP (featuring Stapleton) are also included.

The album combines vintage sounds with current drum & bass tastemakers and also includes a mix of the tracks from D&B legend Jumpin’ Jack Frost.

Planet VIP will be released December 1. Pre-order the album on digital, vinyl and CD formats here.

MyStyle 004 Mixed By The Others

Posted: November 21st, 2014

Caspa’s genre-defining Dub Police imprint never seems to slow down. Long time label star The Others (aka Alex Crawford) crafts a perfectly harmonic mix for Dub Police’s MyStyle series. Brimming with 28 tracks, the compilation is thoughtfully put together, traveling through a diverse range of bass music. Stand out tracks like The Others and J:Kenzo’s “The Prophecy” gives hefty weight to technical bass frequencies and sharp percussion sections. Aptly titled “Acid Acid,” Icicle’s purely acidtized shuffle-ste, is another amazing addition to the album. 

Compa brings primal dark and deep tones to the mix with “Narabeh,” while Taiko explores meditative and heavyhearted vibes with “Fomite.” The Others pleases fans with a few exclusive remixes, such as “Amazonia” VIP, a rework of Plastician’s “Printloop,” and his intense remix of Caspa and Diane Charlemagne’s “Reach For The Sky.”

D-jahsta X Rekoil release ‘The Realm of Terror’

Posted: November 20th, 2014

Continuing to push their beloved Robostep sound, D-jahsta and Rekoil debut a new offering, The Realm Of Terror, on Greek label Mechanoid Audio.

This collaborative effort yields an absolutely filthy pair of tracks. “The Devil” sets a haunting mood, with creepy bells in the intro that lead into an evil drop and devil-like vocal sample. The highlighted sci-fi bass sounds shred through the track. “The Realm of Terror” begins with a more melodic intro that snaps into a completely distorted tone attack of robo-bass riddims. These tracks are not for the faint of heart.

Download the single here.
