MIDWEEK MIXXXTAPES: BEAM UP, BERTIE BASS HITS, CAPRICORN PRODUCTIONS

This week… Beam Up delivers the dub, Bertie Bass-Hits brings the balkan and Capricorn Productions ministers the minimal…

Beam Up

Not a mixtape per se, but a live set from Beam Up (aka DJ Delay, and various other names…) recorded live at Fusion Festival, with live horns from Beam Up and David Karla and based loosely around some of Beam Up’s favourite riddims.

Beam Up – Fusion 2011 live dub set (d/l) by Beam Up / DJ Delay

No tracklist for this one, but they’re all forthcoming from the Beam Up labs…

Bertie Bass-Hits

Bertie – of Innamorati – draws heavily on Boom shakalaka presents: Baltik bass and Shazalakazoo for a Baltikan bass blend, with Jam Jarr’s I Am The Danger lurking incongruously at the end – love that tune but not sure it fits! Loving this mix none the less, have had it on rotation for a few days now. I think I partly love the Baltik sounds & tunes because they’re so similar to Celtic ones, which thanks to Michael Flatley are probably never gonna make it into the annals of cool but which are close to my heart.

Capricorn Productions

This mix is a tribute to the genre of Dub Techno, paying homage to the likes of Deepchord, Echospace and other post-Basic Channel exponents who have taken the sound forward in recent times. The music’s depth and impact evolve over time, where small things make a big difference. Sit back (hopefully at around 1am) and let this wonderful soundscape bathe you in Cold Beauty and Deep Warmth. Enjoy!

Love the name of this mix, so fitting for this kind of music, cold an expansive yet simultaneously warm and enveloping, a disembodied journey through endless tundra, or something equally undergraduate-poetic… Echospace – First Point of Aries at 45 minutes is the perfect distillation of this extremely-minimal-dub-tech sound, and the percussion on the tune that follows is intoxicating in its subtlety and precision. Definitely a solo night time mix, or (as I’ve been finding) an early-morning-sleepy-bus-ride mix.

DJ Pasha

Pasha is from Leicester (UK) and that’s all I know and he sent me this and it’s got a bit of Transnational flava about it and I really like it a lot cause it reminds me of Asian Underground Soundz dubstepped.

The dude sent me this a couple of days ago after I uploaded my LaZerDeLica concept.

Really feeling this, Psychedelic Transnationalism, really spaced out mix and beautifully mixed, just the way I like it……journeying type of mix!

I’ll let the dude tell you what this is all about:

The second in a 2 disc set KATA1yXZT is a recognition of the dual polarities that one must experience as a part of evolution through the illusion of 3rd density Earth.

This DJ mix is a journey to the realms of time/space through the frequency of the green ray heart chakra.This builds up to a confrontation with the shadow self in which through love and understanding the shadow self is recognized as part of the self and there is a breakthrough into the 6th density time/space realms where the lessons of the balance of love and wisdom are explored.
Namaste!
