DUBSTEP MONDAYS @ GENERATION BASS

So last week we had a BRILLIANT mix incorporating some INDIAN DUBSTEP from DJ Coconuts from Tupolev Soundcrash.  Man, that was very well received.  So it’s gonna be kind of tough to follow that.

Anyhow, here’s my INDIAN DUBSTEP MIX, which showcases “some” of the Artists that I’ve been championing at this blog on DUBSTEP MONDAYS.  Some of these Artists I hope will appear on the proposed India Calling – Dubstep Compilation at some point next year.

These are tunes I’ve been blasting at most gigs I’ve done this year in the underground circuit with Tropical Tek House doing the rounds at other gigs.

As most of you know, I don’t spend more than a max of 1 hour 30 mins on a mix.  20 mins prep time for this one and then straight to recording it LIVE in my studio on my Pioneer CDJ’S- one cut- one take in real time fashion (unmastered).

I hope that the mix gives you an insight into just how great some of the stuff coming out of India is at present with standouts for me being Bandish Projekt, Deaf Bass Twins and Nucleya.

Some of the other artists are not Indian like 16 Bit, Barbarix, Celt Islam and Datsik but man it’s cool to hear them embracing these vybz and to such astounding effect too.  Plus the mix is not 100% Indian as it incorporates some Arabic inflexions too, not too much, just a tiny bit!

Of course the idea for the India Calling Compilation is that it will include indigenous Indian Artists only, born and bred there, to showcase its home-grown talent.  So many of the tracks on the mixtape won’t make it.

Just so you know, “Yaar” means “Mate” and so the title translates as “Dubstep, Mate”!

UPDATE FAIRTILIZER CHART:

Just checked the charts at Fairtilizer this morning after uploading this mix yesterday and it’s placed as follows:

NO. 1 – DJ MIX

NO.1 – PUNK (hahaaha)

NO.1 – World

NO. 1 – All Genres

As I’ve said before, the Fairtilizer chart placings add little value to the quality indicator of a mix, save to say some peeps seem to appreciate it but I have seen some truly awful mixes top their charts before.  But as before, it always feels good to be No.1 in something, even if it’s only within a very narrow remit 😉

    the sample you have towards the end, “i too have a dream, that one day you and i will be able to see eye to eye, that we shall no longer be outcast but beyond caste, i too have a dream where even the gardens of Kashmir which seperate us shall become out meeting place, where face to face we shall embrace, and come to feel the burning wheel of eternity within, beyond skin, beyond the borders of our imaginations, beyond the seperation inherant in the creation of nations, i too have a dream, but until my dreams becomes reality, my love shal flow to a boundless ocean, created by the sunset and the earth crying alone in darkness………….” wheres it from??
