Man you guys are like buses, weeks go by with nobody sending me any tapes, now suddenly I’ve got about two solid days worth of mixes to listen to! Don’t worry I listen to them all, if it’s good it’ll end up on here eventually!
This week we’ve got some balaeric bass vibes from DJ Sol Rising, Secret Archives of the Vatican bringing their brand of Transglobal Breakbeat Dub Science and Eshin with an explosive dubstep / d&b mix…

DJ Sol Rising

Quite a Balearic take on global bass right here, I really enjoyed listening to this, if I had a beach bar on a tropical island I’d be booking this dude to play at sunset every day… There’s a summery daytime psy-chill vibe running through the first half of this, perfect for these summer days – well it would be if I wasn’t sat in an office looking out at a car park, matches the weather but not the location. Hopefully the weather will hold & you’ll get to listen to it in more suitable surroudings. Sol Rising’s own tune ‘Around the Clock’ feat Rasco comes in at about 27.30, a wicked slice of hip hop with a transnational beat, and the tempo switches up when Basement Jaxx comes in at about 42 minutes, a totally unexpected excellent choice. Moves into proggy trancey house then gorgeous epic flouro dubstep towards the end, Azedia’s remix of Magnetic Man is the moment where the sun sinks into the ocean, perfect.

Secret Archives of the Vatican

We love a bit of Secret Archives round here, these guys have been around for time but they’re always assimilating new styles & rolling them into their own brand of Transglobal Breakbeat Dub Science… Here’s half an hour of pure Secret Archives action, check it. First tune, Bint al Wazir, has a bit of a Crash Bandicoot vibe… that’s a good thing by the way.

Eshin repping big, apocalyptic dubstep & spacious steppin d&b in Brooklyn. The first tune (Chi & Diggadee MC – Mood Swing) is interesting – completely UK style rapping in a completely USA voice, it’s a subtle thing but the pace and inflection on the vocal are 100% grime and it’s weird hearing it in an American accent. Cool though. Basher – Transmission in the d&b section of the mix is right up my street, spacious, sinister and bassy, reminds me of the stuff I used to play waaay back in the day (some of the first gigs I ever did were d&b nights I put on in Sheffield) but given a sheen for 2011.
