DJ R.A.W. aka 6Blocc to be honored in LA (06.05)

Los Angeles- There are some people out there that simply aren’t afraid to put their heads down and put in the work needed to really establish yourself as part of the fabric of the society that we live in and DJ R.A.W. aka B-Boy 3000 aka 6Blocc (or simply Raul to those of us that know him..) is one of those people.

From the early days of the rave scene here in the US to present day touring around the world dropping bass heavy bombs on throngs of listeners that come to see him throw it down as only he can, R.A.W. is one of the hardest working guys in the business.

On June 5th, 2010, a collective of DJs, MCs, artists of all flavors and a ton of people that both know and love R.A.W. for the work he’s put in over the years, are gathering at The Airliner to honor all of his contributions including helping secure L.A.’s position as one of the top electronic music scenes in America and the world!

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.

You can grab the entire album HERE or grab the individual tracks below. Enjoy!

US Dubstep Imprint MalLabel Announces 6-City US Tour

San Francisco- US Dubstep imprint, MalLabel, recently announced a 6-city US tour to bring their sound to a town near you.

With a heavy line up of artists including DZ, Zeno, Rastatronics, Blackheart, Dr. Knobs, Carly D, El Diablo and more, these shows are going to be sure to be packed and walls will be shaking with the sounds of sub-rocking basslines and remixes galore! So be sure to support your local scene & get your pre-sales early!

FEATURED ARTISTS:
(bios from press release)

DZ, leader of Bad Man Press, is coming along to support his ‘Untitled Facemelter’ EP and the upcoming ‘Purple Gangster (DZ Remix)’ on MalLabel’s 2010 tour. His special blend of West Coast vibes are imported from Canada. The tariff on vibes is heavy, thus why he utilizes them so well. The man breaks things via sound.

Zeno’s releases on many US dubstep labels and several widely acclaimed remixes have put him on the map as a highly respected dubstep artist. His track “West Coast Nitrous Circus” out now on “Low Frequency High Life” (MAL004) demonstrates Zeno’s versatility in style and substance as a producer. Zeno also hosts his monthly podcast “Thinking Juice” on Dubstep FM, which in June 2009 set a record for highest listener count on the station. Expect big bass to be brought to the dancefloor as Zeno continues to hold it down touring the US and soon the world.

Blackheart is pushing buttons all over the place. Recently on the Best of Filthy Digital two times over as well as landing a return spot on the upcoming Bay Area Dubstep vol 3, the self-proclaimed ‘Lords’ are slumpin it and making things nasty. April marks the release of their forthcoming album ‘The Magic Hour’ on MalLabel Music… get ready to kick your boots around a li’l bit.

No stranger to shattering beats and bass into tiny bits to be spliced back together in a masterful pattern of crunklicious bit-crushed gangsta love, Dr. Knobz not only has produced a fabulous release to be delivered unto thee in early March on MalLabel in the form of a sick EP, but he also shares his birth name with a famous game show host. Musically, he’s less apt to share similarities with too many, as he is an upcoming glitch automator with a very singular sense of swank. Dun sleep.

This man is a sorcerer of sorts, and his sets fall nowhere short of shocking. A powerful and energetic force on the decks, El Diablo is responsible for the music behind MalLabel’s theme song ‘Rollin With My Crew,’ and is known to flip it to psyphee when the BPM is getting too high, but the crowd’s high is just fine. Our own devil with the following details: party rocking crazy pants.

The man, the myth.. Mycho Cocoa is a one-of-a-kind artist who produces and mixes with elegance and poise like a lounging tiger whose coat is pink and black. A step out-of-place will lead you right to where it’s at when it comes to Mr. Mycho. His album ‘Low Frequency Highlife’ serves as a testament to all things bassy, hot, and good.

Rastatronics is known to rock a party all night long with his own special blend of chunes. Having worked with DZ, Blackheart, and Bakir of Spit Brothers on tracks, he is poised to continue his mission to bounce souls all over the globe. Check out his own EP coming out soon on MalLabel!

SkullTrane is one of the most intensely unique acts in American Dubstep, answering to the atmosphere of the UK motif with their own Detroit borne sense of squelching, bubbling, crude, lumbering and crushing sense of sonic mastery. Their own label, Cutty Dubs, is run from the heart of San Francisco’s Mission district, molded from the pressure of dub and the city scape. Hear them now, believe the reality in their rhythm.

Zombie-J is lurking right behind you, and he’s bringing a fist full of dubs like you’ve never heard. From beginning to end, Zombie’s “Dr. Wre EP” is brimming with originality, and each track displays Zombie’s signature sound, full of squirrelly west coast glide synth tones and heavy, gritty wobbles. Catch him at a theatre near you, but try not to get bitten, that’s how you become a zombie as well.
