Aight, So this is gonna be my new weekly segment amongst a few cheeky interviews and other exclusive shit. IT'S GONNA BE MAD AS FUUUUCK. I will be bringing to you 5 tracks that you have to have pumping this weekend, and 5 more every weekend after that (until I forget, which could be soon). Here we goooo...
NUMBER JUAN Chords - Radio
This one goes out to anyone who has ever listened to Netsky's 2010 Essential Mix. if you have you are a legend and will hopefully recognise the track and that trippy vocal sample of that old dude talking about making some sort of "Super Soaker" break. Classic track, floats between sharp synths and stabbing basslines, which feel like they've actually been recorded on a bass guitar and not just programmed in to Ableton or Logic. If you know anything else about Chords this is something he does a fair bit, check out Goodbye Grooves out on Ram Recordings. Wicked love to the little disco-y house break down. And that vocal sample, it's amazing.
Hot Since 82 - Don't Touch the Alarm (Booka Shade Remix)
It's Booka Shade, of course this is good. Part of Hot Since 82's debut release on his new label Knee Deep in Sound. Bump this loud so you can get your ears around the sonic goodness that is a Booka bassline in all it's glory.
Chase & Status - Gangsta Boogie feat. Raekwon and Knytro
This combination is sure to get people a little bit excited, The chef in the kitchen with one of the biggest names in electronic music in the world, the almighty Chase & Status and new talent, rapper Knytro, who is signed to C&S's label MTA. I'll tell you this, It delivers.
This track is big, and so so bad, with both worlds finding room to provide stand out performances, in particular from the man from the Wu-Tang.
Chrome Sparks - Star Step
This song has just the craziest energy to it. it's not an overly up tempo tune, but its production value and unique sound design give it this weird power. smooth bass lines and synth progressions with softer, more sombre synths and pads combine for one of those wickedly cool tracks you can snob people out with musically.
Crazy cool percussive sounds and drums in this one too. Signed to Future Classic, watch this name.
Camo & Krooked - Rampage 2014 Live Mix
This may not be one track but it is Camo & Krooked, so it is definitely warranted. THIS right here, is one of the coolest mixes you will ever get to listen to and is the perfect thing to chuck on and leave playing for your pre drinks/kick ons. These guys epitomize teamwork and those who were lucky enough to see them at Rhythm and Vines will potentially recognise some of these tracks!
If you get a chance watch the video for a bit too, 30,000 people, a wicked lighting system and a whole lot of drugs apparently by looking at some of the punters there (naughty naughty). Look out for the Ipad by the decks too, they use it to play all those crazy vocal loops from old rap tunes, so fancy. It looks like a bit too much fun.
SO that's me for this week, have a sick one team!
