Producer Max Tannone takes some seriously classic dub, ska & rock steady reggae and seamlessly blends it with one of the most versatile MCs in the game, Mos Def to hit your ears with “Mos Dub”- a 10 track gem that you need in your collection.

Sublife Recordings: Calculon- “Tunnel Vision”(SBLF003) available 02.25

San Francisco- Local Indie DnB imprint, SubLife Recordings, is back with another quality release from their ever-growing roster of artists. This time around,  San Diego’s DJ Calculon makes his SubLife debut with “Tunnel Vision” on the a-side & SubLife head honcho, Lukeino, teams up with The Heights & Equilibrium to hit you with a dose of funky soul known as “All The Time”.

The last few years has seen the West Coast really shine with a ton of production talent based in SF and LA and it’s great to see Cali producers teaming up to crank out great product!  With more and more solid tunes coming from the US/CAN producers, makes me wonder if we may see a North American Drum-N-Bass Awards sometime in the near future..

Aphonic- Polarize (EPR006)

Up and coming artists Aphonic bring some serious heat on their debut release for Elevated Press.

The lead track Boogeyman is a brutal homage to horror. The track sounds like a slasher film. Very minimal by design this half time stomper demands that you lock the doors and hide the children! The eerie soundscape, huge bass, and a piercing synth line moves to a monstrous peak after the main drop.

The flip side literally comes with the polar opposite. Polarize is smooth, cool, and loving. Another half time stepper with minimal vibes this track is truly beautiful.

Touchphonics- Always On My Mind (EPR007)

This is a brand new single from Touchphonics on his own Elevated Press imprint.

Stop Schemin’ has been bringing some serious heat to dance floors round the globe. The track intros with a funky Latin swing only to drop into some serious bass heavy goodness. The drums are as funky as they come and the lead sample from Audio Two’s classic “Top Billin’” amplifies this tune to anthem status!!

The b-side comes with a hip hop/dance hall tinge. Always On My Mind takes a vocal sample from Mad Lion for a singsong, feel good tune. A half time glitchy intro drops into some bouncy old school drum and bass rhythms. This release is sure to get bodies moving!

Wu-Tang vs. The Beatles- SAY WORD!

Check this out! We just got a link claiming to be a mashup of Wu-Tang vs Beatles songs, so you KNOW we had to go and cop that and bring it straight to your eardrums!

Big shouts going out to Tom Caruana (www.teasearecords.net) for putting together this banger! You can download the entire file here or cop individual tracks below.
