Hey Wizraeli here, wanting to let you know about some heavy tunes that grabbed my attention big time! You know, I go through a lot of music, both commercially released and self-published, and what I have been hearing is a big difference between the two categories. There is something so fresh sounding about listening to a tune right out of the oven, minutes after it was bounced and exported by the artist, slightly raw, maybe unmastered, and just how they intended. The artists are of course influenced by their environment and current worldly affairs and getting to listen to the music immediately after it was created makes the experience more powerful. This is still an emerging phenomena thanks to soundcloud and other services, and music production itself is taking a similar direction. Now, with upcoming cloud-ready music production applications (check out ohm studio), soon transnational collaborations will happen instantaneously and our listening pleasure soon after.
Shifting back to this post, let’s hear what some of the hard rockers of the scene got to offer to us starting with the already Legendary Son Of Kick and this HUUUGE RAW Rmx that stood out my playlist like a giant in a (ganja) garden. Listen to it and tell me if you don’t get what I was just talking about just then, freshness!
CrunchTime Records very own Stereotyp is here again with two new instrumental barefoot riddims. If you ever seen him perform, heard his tracks, or spun them yourself, you know that no one drops that bass as heavy as Stereotyp! So make sure your bass-woofer levels are cranked up, press the big play button below, and check out the latest from the CrunchTime Records production house and Stereotyp who pretty much defined the genre without tempo limits, Barefoot. (be sure to check out their active group on soundcloud). So I am not sure if these riddims are stereo’s, ku bo, or both, so i am giving the credit for them both.
Bumps and MC ZULU, are you prepared for this??? Both artists need no introduction to the scene, and when they collaborate together, flames!!! Feel the vibe, listen to a sample from their upcoming E.P. And here is what Bumps had to say about it on his blog
Comin’ soon is another EP from Chi-Town rez, MC Zulu with a little help from myself, The Bumps, with my hand on the trigger! You’ll able to pick up the whole EP real soon (details to follow), but for now, here’s a preview of what’s going down baby! Rawkuzz…
Ori Shochat, have you heard (you have if you follow us, see vibetown post below :D)? He is a leading Hip-hop DJ and Hip-hop pioneer in Israel, and hosts Israel’s most popular hip-hop show on Radio Tel Aviv. He has produced gold and platinum records for leading Israeli and Arabic artists.
“Recently Ori linked up with the local Dubstep scene – he produced 2009’s biggest dancefloor hit in Israel and is DJing and working with international stars such as Borgore and Tomba. Ori’s new release is a new mixtape alongside DJ Alarm entitled “Vibetown” and has exclusive appearances from artists such as Erykah Badu, DJ Jazzy Jeff, The Beatnuts and more.” http://www.orishochat.blogspot.com/
It is his ventures into dubstep and bass music that got him here so make some room because some heavy weight is about to drop on the floor:
Other tunes that totally grabbed me by Ori are:
The dancehall killer:
This excellent remix of MC Karolina:
Back in July of last year, Caballo posted about VibeTown, a funky mixtape Ori and DJ Alarm did, Vibe Town: this multi-genre, multi-style, multi-language, mixtape is a transnational bass killah!!

Keeping it heavy and groovy with this BOMBA of a track by Maga BO (thanks for the tip Caballo). Love the drop at 2:34, man this MC is HOT and her voice very powerful, love the variation on the BalieFunk stylee.
