Stenchman - Free Album

Stenchman – The Album via You Dun Know

Audio : http://www.sendspace.com/file/xi6u4i
**Please Mirror if you can, Servers are pretty taxed ATM**

I don't usually get too in-depth with reviews, in the dawn of the internet age it usually seems kind of moot, you can usually listen to snippets and form your own opinion. But fuck it, might as well. Overall I feel the the hits out weigh the misses on this LP. Stenchman shows a bit of growth and restraint with this release as well delving more into musicality than we are used to seeing from him. Sometime it works and sometimes it doesn't. Prime Time Swine is an absolute slammer, grinding out on several top DJ's playlist ATM. The Putrid Creature and Gut Fucker VIPs are sick demolition tear outs. The moodiest track on here is Banks of the Nile, which haunting and kind of sad in a beautiful way. Love that tune, it really should of been the album opener but instead we got Too Filled With Horror to Cry. For such a strong title I was surprised at how weak of track it actually was. It was trying to be moody and minimal but honestly came across as bit bland and repetitive for me. Just not enough interesting bits in those loops get across the somber vibe that it was aiming for. Some other misses for me include the Lisztomania Remix, and the remix of Burials Archangel was a bit of a wobbly mess as well. But hey look, we got some new experiments form the Stench that work pretty well too. Thats the whole point of an album, right, exploring and mutating your sound, and editing down to the essential ideas. It's all bout the big picture, which works here. I think tunes like Cockeck and New Sock 2 Sock, give us some new ground that we haven't heard much of. Cockeck with jumpy horns punctuated with grinding bass, similar to the DNB flavored Gypsy Tart. And then New Sock 2 Socks, which has some creepy uncle samples and a murky bass. For that, you can forgive some of the mis-steps and chalk that shit up to artistic growth. It's a free download, that's at least worth a tenner. Don't forget to donate.

Stinkahbell- You Dun Know Podcast

You Dun Know is at it again. Straight up sickness and sludge from the the one like Stinkahbell. He's one of the few producers that can drop a syrupy bassline and match it with an bouncing riddim, without throwing you into seizures. Its likes a more sophisticated form of brostep, without robot transformery, and more of synth-laced vibe. You can definitely hear the Skream and Coki influences in his tunes and selections.The mix is tight and he draws from some seasoned pro's as well an arsenal of personal dubs. Highlights:Don’t Tell Mum About Ibizia, Street Sweeper X, Metal Mouth mixing into Go Remix mixing into Judgement Day, the whole ending.

Deco – Deceast Mix Series #001



Big summertime mix from Deco of Deceast Blog. Deep dubby vibes, tropical flavors, and enough swerve to make you spill your Mai Tai on your sandals there buddy. I gotta say I'm digging this dub tiki. It's nice change of pace from getting bombarded with same old crunchy beats and robot destruction basslines, but still clubby enough to catch a groove. Well done I say.

U.S. Dubstep in The SUN

http://www.thesun.co.uk/sol/homepage/showbiz/music/3089382/Dubstep-making-leaps-in-the-US.html

Here's a nice little article on the Dubstep crossing over to the US scene. It's been doing it course from the nearly the start, but it's great to have some recognition in a fine UK publication like the Sun. At least it wasn't on page 3. All kidding aside it really is great to see US Dubstep get a bit of write from the home of it all. I actually couldn't agree with the article more, although I wish Joe Nice would have got a name drop as one of the early US DJs pushing the sound. Can't win them all. Smog and Argon were well repped, and I have to agree that they are some the best US Dubstep labels around. Congrats to all mentioned, enjoy your holiday in the Sun.

SKREAM AND RUSKO B2B in CHICAGO, VIDEO - TURN VOLUME DOWN

video
1st video is Serial Killer dub, that is brutal. I think you can see some of Zew's(from Bassdrive) head in this haha.

video

2nd Vid, is just Rusko N Skream mid tag-team... something with a crazy tearing bass line.



Man, I obviosly don't know how to record club video very well on my iPhone, the sound on this is extremely blow out, so please turn it almost all the way down (at least to a quarter of the full volume). I'm fully not responsible for you destroying your speakers or eardrums if you don't heed my warning. This is more about just giving the vibe of this raw B2B w/ Skream and Rusko. It was amazing, one of the best dubstep gigs I've ever been to hands down. Thanks to Drew at SMOG and Brandon from Further Sound for putting this on. All the DJs (Pablo Hassan, Juan Basshead, 12th Planet, Richie August) killed it that night, but Skream B2B Rusko was extra SICK! Just a rarity that hasn't happened in like 5 years.

Plastician and P Money – History of Dubstep

Recorded live at our event at The Thekla, Bristol with Bristol promoters Monkey!Knife!Fight! and clothing company Fly53; FOOmagazine present Plastician and P Money – History of Dubstep live set. There's a lot of the usual suspects on here as well as few deep cuts. Much like what you'd expect from a Plastician history lesson. The sound is a bit murky on here and I don't mean that in a good way, like it was recorded inside a laundry bag. P Money is way too hype on his spits, in full-on jibba jabba raving mode. I wish this was a studio mix and I could me more pumped on it, but as it stands barely worth the listen.

D Double E - Streetfighter



At long last we have the D Double E - Streetfighter video and I have to say it's a bit of a let down. I love the tune, no spits like D Double, but the freshman level Motion Graphics is pretty wack on this. Just a little too obvious and literal with the illustrative, typographic lyrics. I feel like I've seen it before. Still, love the the tune, even though it's been quite rinsed at this point.
