Josif Marius & Joxaren : Nuntă de valoare


Awesome new EP of Romanian music from Swedish Skweee pioneer Joxaren just dropped.

It focuses on Tallava or Talava, an oriental-sounding music genre originating in Kosovo but also popular in Albania and in the Albanian-speaking communities in the Republic of Macedonia. It is identified as part of the wider Pop-folk genre of the Southeastern Europe, which includes Chalga from Bulgaria, Skiladiko from Greece, Manele from Romania and Turbo-folk from Serbia.

The EP includes an original and 3 awesome remixes from our dude Center of the Universe and a romping Sebastian Gudding remix amongst others.

SPECIAL LIMITED SUPPORT DEAL: For the first two weeks after release, all earnings from the sales of this EP on Bandcamp will be donated to the singer and his family in Pitești, Romania. This will support basic needs such as firewood, roofing and school material for their children. Donate as much as you wish.



Seriously Hot Mix here from our boy Streamer taking in all of his recent remixes, edits and originals.

This mix travels from Africa to the Middle East and goes to some weird and interesting places in between. It also takes in some tracks from the recent “Walking with Camels Remixed” EP. Covers Voodoo, Gqom, Footwork, Afro House, Samba, Dubstep, Neurofunk and Arab Bass. So much quality in this.

Whilst you’re at it download some of the tracks that feature in the mix:



BANGANAGANGBANGERS is a Dutch bass-collective, whose Loyalty Lane EP we really enjoyed before. The Tilburg-based group is currently releasing new tracks for their King Abbott EP, which will be released may 26th. The first single, Execute, was featured on Nest HQ and the second track, Ashes, was premiered at Booms and Claps.

Today they’re releasing the third track, Resurrection, and we got the premiere for you!
Resurrection starts with a marching clap, that gets followed by a menacing synth and floating hihats, which will suck you right into the track. When the buildup joins this melody, it will give a juke-like feeling, but when the complete drums kick in, it shows the real energy of this banger. It’s the heavy hitting bass, the sawing synth and the fast drums that make this a typical BANGANA-track.

June 11th the group will host their releaseparty for the complete EP in 013, Tilburg. They invited Ivy Lab, Rachel Green, Subp Yao, Lifecycle and Know V.A. to join them in this bass-madness.

Be the first to listen to Resurrection here:

Streamer – Walking with Camels Remixed [Free for 24 Hours Only]


We return with Streamer and a Remix EP focusing on his “Walking with Camels” EP which we released last Christmas. We loved that EP so much that we just needed a follow up and what better way than to get a bunch of our favourite producers to put a twist on the EP.

The original Walking with Camels sounds like a precious, classic and unmissable (they don’t make it like they used to) 70s recording featuring some tracks in the tricky measures of 6/8 and 5/8.

In parts, the EP sounded like the lost Middle Eastern Jazz recordings of Idris Mohammed, Byrd and M Jarre jamming together on a modern electronic Psychedelic Orchestral Dub tip… a sonic, cinematic Desert Wave soundtrack for an imaginary movie yet to be made –

For the Remixes EP, this world was turned upside down and inside out, deconstructed and reconstructed for the club environment. Most of the remixers opted for Last Sacrifice as the track to remix. It is a track that gets under your skin and refuses to leave and there never seems to be enough of it, always leaving you yearning for more

The 12 tracks on the Ep/Album feature an array of genre styles from current hot fave Gqom (Gome) through to 80’s Synthwave, Grime, Tribal, Vogue/Ballroom, Techno, Wobble, Neuro Funk, DnB, Acid, Jungle and Skweee.

1. Streamer – Walking With Camels (Ballroom Version)

Streamer turns the EP Title track into a Vogue/Ballroom Bass blitz in the desert. Arab Ha! never sounded quite like this before demonstrating that Streamer is a true Master At Work!

2. Streamer – Last Sacrifice (Bandish Projekt Feat. Aishwarya Joshi)

Bandish Projekt created a spine-tingling remix of The Last Sacrifice featuring Hindi vocals on a 5/8 Dubstep excursion.

3. Streamer – Searching For Ketama (Gqom Burn Riddim)

For his first remix of Searching for Ketama (there are 3 in all), Streamer looked to South African Gqom (Gome) for this remix. Commercial and accessible and already supported by BBC Radio 1 and Toddla T amongst others.

4. Streamer – The Last Sacrifice (Insane Fennel Apocalypse Remix)

Insane Fennel added to the ritual and gave The Last Sacrifice an Apocalyptic Wall of Bass Re-rub. first premiered on the Mad Decent Blog.

5. Streamer – Midnight Express (Neuro Version)

Streamer, who it seems can turn his hand to almost any genre style and pull it off with aplomb, gave Midnight Express a Neuro-Funk, DnB, Jungle make-over turning it into something completely MAD!

6. Streamer -The Last Sacrifice (Sarantis Remix)

Sarantis turns The Last Sacrifice into a Grime epic.

7. Streamer – The Last Sacrifice

Sanmon transformed the sacrificial ritual into a Techno behemoth.

8. Streamer – Searching For Ketama (Golden Version)

Streamer’s 2nd remix of Searching for Ketama finds him giving it a Ketama Gold sheen with a harder hitting vibe, taking it way down to 80 BPM.

9. Streamer – The Last Sacrifice (Zhe Pechorin Remix)

Zhe Pechorin gives The Last Sacrifice a new deep-tribal, slow-grind make-over.

10. Streamer- Bedouin (Center Of The Universe Remix)

Our friend Centre of the Universe was bold enough to tackle Bedouin producing an other-worldly remix that sounds like we could have landed on the moon, way before Neil Armstrong did!

11. Streamer – Searching For Ketama (DesertWave Version)

For streamer’s 3rd and final version of Ketama, he covered an idea I had in my mind for a Bladerunner version in the form of a DesertWave remix harking back to 80’s Synthwave sensibilities.

12. Streamer- Midnight Express (Drvg Cvltvre’s Acid Kool Aid Mix)

We close this Ep/Album with Drvg Cvltvre tapping into early Pink Floyd for inspiration combined with his affinity for Acid and he teases us with a slow bulding mellow monster.

Prince "Rally For Peace" Baltimore Mix


I think this is one of my first blog posts since I heard of the passing of The Beautiful One. Haven’t wanted to listen to any music, feels like the end of a beautiful era.

But anyhow here is a mix direct from one of Prince’s Dj’s Dj Dudley D who says as follows:

In May 2015 during the “Dance Rally For Peace” party at Paisley Park I played a couple of Prince tracks right before and after he performed that were appropriate for the climate in the country and theme of the party. The next day I received a message that Prince wanted me to make a 30 min mix of his music that was “relevant to the times that are happening in our country at the moment.” After going back and forth with him and changing some things it ended up being twice as long he was happy. If you were not at the Baltimore concert you would not of heard this. I have posted it on Sound Cloud for all to listen. Share and enjoy.

Prince played this mix before his May 10th 2015 “Rally For Peace” concert in Baltimore.

Generation Bass Presents: GBMIX#9! César Ch


After a period of silence, GBMIX is full up and running again! Approaching the end of the first half of 2016, we’re back with a fresh mix by the Mexico City based futurist César Ch. A DJ and a reviewer for the Classical Trax platform, he embodies the ultimate fusion of the global bass scene and the avant-garde club movement, constantly seeking to weave together the original genres from all over the world such as batida, tarraxo, baile funk and Mexico’s own tribal prehispánico, with the glacial, mechanical & sounds of ambient grime, ballroom and mutant club music.

Half a Year into Generation Bass Radio


In October, we launched a fresh radio show with “cutting edge bass and club music from all over the world” on the Utrecht based internet radio channel Stranded FM, presented by myself under my Soundcloud moniker S x m b r a.

From a biweekly experiment it developed into a regular, monthly item with a blend of music, news and, occasionally in depth conversations about topics related to innovative music and its social, cultural or political context. It has been a great learning experience since I’d never presented live or played music with CDJs and now I had to do both at the same time. All the podcasts can be listened back on Stranded FM’s Mixcloud channel, but to make life easy I collected them here.

1. DEBUT under the name Generation Bass Radio (after my guest appearance in Android Dreams show), dedicated to the Afrofuturism Festival Rotterdam


2. S X M B R A SOLO MIX SESSION featuring a short prerecorded set from future bass & hybrid techno dj GIDEON


3. FIRST SHOWCASE SESSION featuring GIDEON again, but now live


4. First talkshow dedicated to the challenges of music as a bridge between cultures as ethnic groups, featuring researchers from the Erasmus University Rotterdam and Bright Radio host El Maria




6. SECOND SHOWCASE SESSION with a live set by bass alrounder Frenquency
