BISCOPE: SUPER SOUTH AFRICAN DUBSTEP

Biscope1

Biscope is the brainchild of the Rumney brothers Richard (aka Richard The Third) and Robert (aka Twelv) and they’re concocting some serious bass science in their Johannesburg laboratory.

In their solo guises both have been creating sub-bass rumblings in South Africa and beyond: Richard The Third with his debut album; Robert alongside emcee Neo Matsau as Twelv & Thesis. But their future projects – and prospects – are looking very bright.

On the strength of some slick original productions and superb dubstep bootlegs (of everyone from Jill Scott and Erykah Badu  to Burial and Nirvana, all available on their Soundcloud page), they’ve signed to South African label On A Break and their work is available on Beatport and Juno.

Richard just finished producing the majority of Playdoe/Sweat.X vocalist Spoek Mathambo’s upcoming ‘Spoek Mathambo and Mshini Wam’ project (a collab between the heralded emcee, Richard and drummer Jake Lipman), due for released on BBE in August. He also just worked with amazing Canadian singer Zaki Ibrahim on a scintillating track that’s stream-able below.

Robert is no less busy, with his Twelv track “LSD Influence” making it into Beatport’s Top 100 Breakbeat chart, and rave reviews rolling in for his live performances and recorded work. You can download Twelv & Thesis’ debut EP for free on the Dankage website.

South Africa certainly isn’t a hotbed of dubstep action at he moment, with nights devoted to the style very rare. But there are some loudening murmurs on the production front, and many of the best examples are available on Richard The Third’s mixtape for essential South African DJ site listenup. The way these brothers are working it out, SA dubstep’s state of affairs may soon change…

MIXING + BLENDING

Mix n Blend 3

Operating out of idyllic Cape Town, Mix n Blend is an eclectic trio that are fast gaining attention on the back of their bass-heavy DJ sets and a great debut album for influential South African electronic label African Dope, formerly home to Waddy Jones’ (aka Die Antwoord’s) previous act The Constructus Corporation, The Real Estate Agents and Felix Laband (who also released an acclaimed album on Compost Records).

Mix n Blend 2

Mix n Blend’s first long-player ‘Look Mom, No Hands’ (Soundcloud preview here) features an array of guests and a variety of styles – from dub and dubstep to electronica and jazz – and it’s a fairly decent reflection of South Africa’s unique multi-culturalism. This fact no doubt helped it garner two South African Music Award nominations (in the Best Alternative Album and Best Producer categories) – we’ll know this Saturday night whether they won or not.

The act’s diverse output (plenty of which is available on their Soundcloud page) also includes some terrific remixes, re-edits and bootlegs, a few of which I’ve made available for you below.

Easy Did It by mixnblend (their ‘Mix Masala’ Re-edit of Willie Hutch’s ‘Easy Does It’)

DAMGROOVE

damgroove

Another act I can’t really tell you much about save to say they are DAMGROOVE and come from Cambridge in the UK.

They make Electronica/Experimental and Big Beat choons and Big Beat is something we have not had on here for quite some time.

They have loads of freebies including unofficial remixes for you to download and so pick and choose or grab them all.
