Dub, grime and garage enthusiast, Terror Danjah, has announced he will be releasing a compilation of largely unreleased tracks through his own Hardrive label. With only a little rest between the release of his second LP, ‘Dark Crawler’, and the news of this compilation, you have to wonder where he finds the time.
FaltyDL‘s come a long way since his early stateside take on garage: his new album ‘Hardcourage’ is the very embodiment of this journey. His approach to composition, sound levels and design have matured immensely.
Barely 2 years after the release of ‘Black Sands’, London-based label Ninja Tune will be releasing a remix album of Bonobo‘s astonishing ‘Black Sands’ LP. Though a lot has changed in the musical landscape since ‘Black Sands’ was released, in a way things have come full circle as more and more producers are discovering the ambient soundscapes of downtempo, trip hop and deep house.
It was only last year that Zed Bias aka Dave Jones donned his Maddslinky persona to put out a very smashing album of UK Funky, 2-step and Garage on Tru Thoughts. The LP, entitled ‘Make A Change’, has now been followed up with ‘Biasonic Hotsauce – Birth of the Nanocloud’, this time as Zed Bias.
FaltyDL has announced he will be releasing a new two-track single via Dublin record label All City. The new single features two tracks, ‘Make It Difficult For You’ and ‘Jack Your Job’.
His second LP ‘You Stand Uncertain’, released earlier this year on Planet Mu, marked a promising forray into the hatefully named ‘Future Garage’. However, it seems this new single takes a brief departure from that sound, having been described as “fast-paced house with a distinctly ’90s US influence”. Stream the A side ‘Make It Difficult For You’ below and then buy the single when it comes out on June 21.
Right, I have to admit I was convinced this was some sort of elaborate April Fool’s prank but it’s now the 3rd and I’ve yet to have this theory proved. So, here it is: to celebrate the release of the reissued boxset of ‘Frasier’, NBC have comissioned some of the coolest producers going to remix that iconic theme.
So far I’ve only heard FaltyDL‘s mix but it’s enough for me to want to go out and get the whole lot. After listening to it it doesn’t seem so add to sample those pianos and create a house tune from them, but it still tickles me to hear that “Eggs eggs-eggs eggs” loop at the end.
So listen below to the most post-modern excursion in juked-out thuggery you’ll ever hear. Frasier has never been so hip.
