Miss Red – K.O. Dubplates

Big thx to the Pressure label for these freebies.

From the labels page :
“It’s been a thrill to start up the PRESSURE label in 2018.
Beginning with my FLAME 1 collab with the incredible
craftsman Burial, via Miss Red’s reign of fire, and ending with
Jamaica’s dread poet Nazamba, and Japan’s underground militants G36,
it was truly a pleasure to globally spread the dub, dancehall, bass and dirt…

I decided to pass these dubplates (which had previously only exclusively featured fleetingly on my FACT magazine ‘PRESSURE’ mix), as my way of saying thx to all those that have supported my label throughout the year, and my club nights that inspired me to set up the label…
Right now, with so much dull club music clogging up eardrums and charts, its a joy to spread these fierce, feral fresh, dubplates.”

Major props to Trigga and Jamakabi for becoming PRESSURE fam…
And large thx to Nick Sayers for the Miss Red cover pic.
Lastly big bug hugs to Abdullah, Matt and Conal for the invaluable help…

Ezor – Storm (free download)

Ezor – Storm by Lifestyle Music
Stumbled upon this freebie this morning from the Lifestyle Music label. Techy sounds, check it yourself.

Before I joined BC several years ago I was probably only familiar with the more well known labels/artists. It had never occurred to me to look a bit deeper. So many. And not just quantity, quality too. At first I didn’t recognise any of Lifestyle’s artists and almost ignored the whole label. What a mistake that would have been because some of them, such as Revaux, Klinical and Objectiv to name a few, are now amongst my favourites.

Practically spend whole weekends listening to music on Bandcamp.

A slight addiction you might say. But I have never enjoyed listening to music as much as I do now. I do buy a lot but at a guess it’s probably about 20% or so of the stuff I actually like. I’ll usually buy the cheapest things first, that way I can buy more. Stuff I’m not sure about (maybe another listen) go into the wishlist.

For the past few years I’ve been on bandcamp it hasn’t changed much. The core features are very good but so much scope for improvement. Playlists? User defined sections, maybe simple tabs? Had to create a second account to try and keep the dnb stuff seperate.

Haven’t spent a lot of time on this site so far but thinking about what I can do to improve it.

Free 11 track dnb lp from Latent Notion (UK 2007)

I’m not a huge fan of liquid dnb or female vocals with dnb in general but that’s probably because a lot of generic sounding tracks fall into those groups.

Not the case here. Pleasantly surprised by this album, the songs have all been well written and crafted. I didn’t dislike a single one, quite liked the vocals too, which is rare. I’ll definately give this another listen sooner rather than later.
