Prepare yourselves for this episode, this time around we have some of the finest deep Drum and Bass from my favorite deejay in the DC area, DJ Seven. His many years of experience are on full display in this fluid arrangement of some seriously mental tunes. This set ebbs and flows into many beautiful spaces and touches many emotions. You can catch his other mixes from his Soundcloud page.
This latest mixtape entitled “Excuse Me While I Kiss the Sky” from producer Consomateur (France) is a super laid back, tripped out selection- his “headphone highlights”. It contains some of his favorite beats of 2013 (feat. Nosaj Thing, Evol Intent, Daedelus, Gas Lamp Killer) as well as the usual oldies and some of his own productions mixed in. Sit back, relax and enjoy this eclectic selection of bass heavy beats, glitchy snares and acoustic vibes.
For this episode we follow up with another red hot mix from Lille, France. In this live recording of Steeve Neotron at the Waz Factory we get a flawless mix of dubstep beats splattered with jungle/drum and bass style kick-snare-hat riffs, pulsating techno stabs and new-school grimey synths. Neotron’s roots in reggae and hip-hop come out clear in this bass filled set and well represent the vibe of the Lillois dubstep heads. You can check out more of his music on Aloutte Street.
XtronX was born from the ashes of Electronically Lost, a musical project that would anchor him in the experimentation of industrial music . This exclusive mix for TF is an evolution of grimey dubstep, trap and dnb styles. He is a DJ for the Manin Crew, which organizes Drum and Bass, Dubstep, hardteck and Ragga Dancehall parties in northern France. Stay tuned in 2014 for his second E.P. – a dark hip-hop instrumental with pianist Alice Thompson of London.
Underground Science is mix-tape of tracks I’ve come across over the last six years since starting the podcast. These vinyl dubs, unfinished works, and propa releases need to be shared before they disappear forever into the electronic ether. Enjoy this compilation of my favorite beatmakers. Peace! – xun
