Sexxy Saturday Cumbia – Euphoria

All people share one thing in common, regardless of culture or race, regardless of religious dogma, the desire to reach as close to a permanent state of euphoria as possible. I can’t honestly address the wrong roads to this euphoric state but I can address one correct one. As I’ve written before of Lenny Bruce’s “what is and what should be” understanding and the focus on “what could be” addition by myself, now I add how one should respond to the truth of what is. Lao Tzu wrote about this long ago in the Tao Te Ching, the ability of knowing how to move with time. This means knowing how to respond to reality in ways that bring oneself a peaceful result. When things don’t turn out the way one wishes them to be (which is quite often in life), knowing how to respond to reality and to act accordingly is a true path to peace. To cultivate this ability appears difficult but it most definitely is not impossible. Honesty with one’s emotions towards reality is a big step, and then moving with time (the act of knowing what to do and when to do it) brings a peaceful conclusion one hundred percent of the time. For example when someone you have strong feelings for does something that upsets you, knowing how to respond with the love you feel for them always brings out joy and peace in the end. This is my wish for everyone in the New Year. Try making this the one most important resolution. Learn to move with time with your heart and all will be well and as close to a constant sense of euphoria as possible. As you do this learn to treat everyone with immense love and respect in all situations (try for especially those you disagree with and always of course those that you love tremendously so you don’t lose them).

For the coming of the New Year I suggest starting with a journey to the highest altitudes with Will Eede’s newest beautiful Andika mix.

I suggest to always keep an eye on Will Eede and WEPA because they are always coming out with consistently good productions.

To flow rather perfectly with Andika and euphoria is Sonidos Profundos set with Mish Mish recently uploaded to SoundCloud. These three tracks are deeply moving. I can honestly say this sound is why I love nu cumbia as much as I do.

Taking us deep too is Turbo Sonidero Futuristico’s new release. It’s been a work in progress since last March but now is out for our listening pleasure which I am grateful for.

Dany F is another on the top of my list of favorites. His love for deep cumbia productions is something I am also grateful for. I love entering his world when I listen to his work.

I’m a great lover of low frequency oscillation and the use of it with the bass on this next track is really cool. El Rey Llama uses it as a true instrument and not just an effect. Actually everything going on in this one is dope. This is music designed for the brain. If you ask nicely maybe he’ll let you download it so you can spin it at a club. It deserves a good booming sound system.

One of the best out there is Don Beto as we all know. Though heavy on moombah I still feel this is a good post for his mixtape to appear. There are plenty of cumbia elements going on. Check it out after his short promotional video where he quickly shares his message.

I have to admit I’m not too familiar with The Bog and Elsa though when I heard Dr. Cr4ck’s awesome electro cumbia remix I knew I had to share it here.

The party isn’t over yet. Actually it’s about to get crazy! I’m as sick as the rest of you with LMFAO but this is awesome! Better than the original El Salto Del Tigre steals the glory from LMFAO with this one.

I can’t stand Good Charlotte with their whiney sound. I’m sure most of you agree. But I have to give it to Kantiw for this 3 ball remix. It’s really dope. Kantiw is keeping up with a consistently good job of producing 3 ball remixes. Kantiw is definitely one of the best in this genre.

DubConscious is releasing a new EP this year of remixes. They will release the EP at the beginning of the New Year but I’ll happily give a sneak peak of the track I remixed for them. It’s a cumbia dub I hope some of you like. I slowed it down and made it spacey.

Cumbieros it’s a new year granted to us to push beyond where we’ve been. It’s a new year to innovate with our music, our performances, our mixes and our pursuit of peace, love and respect.

Here’s wishing you all the best in the New Year!

SKREAM & BENGA FREE EP

Fresh off their rafter-raising North American tour, it’s the UK’s preeminent dubstep duo Skream & Benga. Known for their bass-centric brand of sci-fi sonics, the pair now scorch Scion A/V with this new five-track EP. From their early studio releases on Big Apple Records to their group project Magnetic Man, these childhood friends have put in the necessary work to take their sound from its niche London origins to an awesome level of international prominence. Step to it!

1. “Phat Head”
Snazzy synthesizers and a shuddering bass add
up to this roof-raising slice of instrumental soul.

2. “Nefariousa”

Perhaps inspired by the UK duo’s recent experience touring the USA, this track shows why darkness is sometimes so darn appealing.

3. “Ice Cream Jelly Roll”
Carbonated sirens, percussive grumbling, ruthless repetition, and even a quick nod to four-four house?
No one else delivers big bass dubstep quite like this.

4. “Electro West”
Guaranteed to drive your nosey neighbors back
where they belong, this rave-blasted slab comes
with its own intruder alert alarm system.

5. “Any Steppers”
Thinking about taking a leap across a bottomless
crevasse separating two columns of jagged black
ice? Here’s the song to listen to while you do it.

Songs From A Small Island – UK Moombahton

Original underground Moombahton tracks from UK artists showcasing the breadth of the genre.

This collection of original Moombahton bangers offers a taste of the diversity bubbling under the surface of this exciting genre. Each of these tracks showcases something different – from the glitchy, stripped-back, percussive vibes of “Fayre Game” to the Big Room monster tear out bass edits of “Badman Choon”. The romantic, video game originality of Sand Dance or the super-smooth, slo-mo techno smokeout of All My Zero’s – these tracks combine to make a well-rounded debut EP that offers something for everyone.

HIMURO YOSHITERU – GLASS BREAKING EP

[Artwork by: b-positive.gr (http://www.b-positive.gr/)]

All the way from the Land of The Rising Sun, Japan, comes our first EP of 2012 from the magnificent Himuro.

HIMURO YOSHITERU is a top notch producer, blending IDM and modern bass sounds into something super fresh. He started out in the late 90’s and was a label mate to acts like Squarepusher and Freeform, but in the last couple of years has developed a distinct style of bass music and dubstep-ish vibes that are both playful and upbeat.

Don’t expect heavy handed samples and dark breakdowns from this dude, this is aimed at the feet and the chiptunes influences gives the tracks a very enjoyable and positive vibe. In his music you can still hear the fast IDM sample chopping and little breaks, but the glue that binds it all together is a dense, heavy, gut shaking bass and hard hitting drums and percussion.

His talent was already recognized by the late great John Peel, who featured him several times on his show, in 2012, Himuro joins the ranks of the expanding Generation Bass family, who are very happy to have such a heavy hitter on board, doing this EP with them. Don’t sleep on these tracks, this is the now sound of bass music…

The Thugstep Commission (Mixed By Disc Jockey Nappy)

So this release has been one of the most frustrating I’ve ever had to complete. It started as a different mix altogether, and we ran into every snag possible. As always, my manager Khal from Rock The Dub always blesses my bigger releases…

“Welcome to the beginning of the next chapter in the Book of Thugstep. A movement spawned by a Lil Jon acapella and a smirk has now ignited a number of scenes, and no one knows this sound better than its architect, Jersey’s own DJ Nappy. With hundreds of his own refixes under his belt, and the majority of 2011 spent cultivating projects, mixes and plotting the next phase, Nappy is chronicling the Thugstep movement as we see it. This first peek is his most captivating mix of the year, bringing the familiar Hip-Hop and dubstep originals from the likes of Wale, ASAP Rocky and Yelawolf along with refixes from the cream of the crop, including Wick-It, DZ, Nick Catchdubs and himself, Nappy weaves from sound to sound, genre to genre, like no one else has been. Welcome to The Thugstep Commission.”

GENERATION CHILL : MUNCHI

Quite apart from his music, what I also Luv about Munchi is that he isn’t afraid to turn big commercial things down on the basis of his principles and beliefs and that is a very rare commodity these days.

After all he knows, as well as a few others, that his talent is not just not for today or tomorrow but for the rest of his life and he wants to do things in a responsible way without compromising his beliefs and his music bestows this honesty and integrity.
