CdV P095 Bass and grime special

This week we return to the constantly shifting frontiers of bass and grime as we feature a heavy contingent of UK artists, but also plenty more from further afield, especially the USA. Stylistically we also cover plenty of ground, starting with a couple of recent tracks that push the boundaries of instrumental grime, like SD Laika and Australia’s Strict Face and then settling back into a run of vocal driven tunes including new material from Roll Deep MC Flowdan amongst others. Keeping it all together are a handful of more traditional tracks that trade in mood and bass pressure.

CdV P084 Bass music special

Our first bass music program of the year finds dubstep either on the ropes or nonchalantly promiscuous, particularly with techno, with many traditional artists and labels edging towards more regimented sounds. Yet there are still plenty at the core who are capable of interesting and innovative tunes including the impressive Wen who has delivered “Signals” one of the year’s best albums already, the returning Cooly G and the nucleus formed around Bristol’s Pinch to name a few. Somewhere into this mix we throw a tribute to the late DJ Rashad and also bookend the program between some extraordinary tracks from Kryptic Minds’ Osiris Music UK label.


CdV P083: Especial de classic house

Nuestro primer programa del año de bass music se encuentra el dubstep ya sea contra las cuerdas o con indiferencia promiscua, en particular con el techno, con muchos de los tradicionales artistas y sellos desplazando hacia sonidos más regimentadas. Sin embargo, todavía hay un montón en el centro que son capaces de pistas interesantes e innovadoras, incluyendo el impresionante Wen que ha entregado «Signals», uno de los mejores discos del año ya, el regreso de Cooly G y el núcleo formado alrededor de Pinch de Bristol por nombrar algunos. En algún lugar en esta mezcla que tiramos un homenaje al fallecido DJ Rashad y enmarcamos el programa entre algunas pistas extraordinarias del sello Osiris Music UK de Kryptic Minds.

P028: Dubstep and a focus on Keysound Recordings

Some dubstep this week as we turn our attention to the Keysound Recordings label from London run by Dusk and Blackdown. Several of their recent releases, combining Grime and classic dubstep styles, have set the standard high for 2013, whereas we also highlight the recent album by the label owners themselves and show our respect to some of the new blood they continue to foster.
