I’VE GOT MA WEAZAL OUT!

July 22, 2009

So about 2/3 weeks ago it was BASS WEAZAL’s birthday. It’s weird that I don’t really blog that much of their stuff. They define my taste in music so completely. Filthy basslines (clues in the name) and chopped up vocals. That taken into account i’m going to make some effort with this post 🙂

Will Bailey’s first project was Twocker, and although a huge success, he decided a natural musical move forward for him required something a little different….the answer to this was for him to bring in well respected fidget and house DJ ILL PHIL, Phil Dolman. Together they worked in search for a sound with a different take to electro than Twocker. Influences from artists such as Switch, Herve and Fake Blood all were added to the blending pot until one epic day, BASS WEAZAL was born.

With collaborations under their belt and in the pipeline already from respected artists such as the talented ‘Mikey Hook’, Jelo and Foamo, and Remixes done for Soul Candi, Ho-Ju, Nytee Trax, and Dj Dan on Instereo…Bass Weazal really are creating big waves in the global electro scene that border on the tsunami scale!!

Their wonky basslines and off-the-beansprout beats are shaking up the electro baseline scene bigtime.

Here’s a collection of some of my favourite BASSWEAZAL tracks:
MGMT – Kids (Bass Weazal & Mikey Hook’s Cut’n’Pasted Remix) – 320kbps
MGMT – Time To Pretend (Bass Weazal Anthem) – 320kbps
Mylo – In My Arms (Bass Weazals Carnival Remix)
The Killers – Mr Brightside (Bass Weazal vs Mikey Hook Remix) – 320kbps
The Prodigy – Smack My Bitch Up (Bass Weazal Remix)

White Lies – Death (Chase & Status Remix)

chase_and_status

Ok, It’s been a while. But i’ve finally found a song i’m excited about.. and it comes from the ever dependable Chase and Status. This tune is filthy good… great drops, interesting sounds and epic sounding vocals! I actually downloaded it initially without hearing it… Stuck it on a CD for my 1hr morning drive to work… Chris Moyles is good, but not exactly on the cutting edge of new music.

Anyway, got driving down the m11, all good so far… Then came the m25… CARNAGE! A lorry fire ment for 7 junctions the traffic was going at maybe 3miles an hour. I spent 4hrs in the heat… with no cold air because my radiator matrix was leaking… which ment every half an hour I was having to put more cold water in the engine. Effort! Despite it all this song made it somewhat bearable. It got me… and the surrounding cars dancing!

Calvin Harris – Ready For The Weekend (High Contrast Remix)

high-contrast-2

Okay… So it’s not like i’m a massive dnb poster, but I love IT! And I LUV High Contrast, I buy everything he throws out there. I suggest you do the same! His remixes are awesome and never fail to deliver. I heard this massive tune earlier this evening on Radio 1 (cheers Zane) and had to blog it! Shiveringly good vocal chops and a relentlessly deep baseline.. Wickidy Bo!

UPDATE – 4/7/09

Okay i’ve left this without a download for long enough. A radio rip is the best I can do. In all honesty the quality isnt all that bad.

Its a *SUN*day!

deadmou5

I shall call this post “Stuff i’ve found over the last week that isn’t necessarily new but it’s pretty cool and should be in your music collection too” – Catchy ey??

So as far as i’m concerned its not been a week full of awesomeness as far as music goes. Maybe i’ve missed something. There are a few good tracks popping up that I think deserve a place in your music collection though.

First up we’ve got deadmou5…  and after his recent blog post i feel I should make it clear that this is a 320kbps mp3. So although not “HD” by deadmou5 standards it’s still a pretty good recording. This tune feels very ghosts’n’stuffy some similar samples used maybe.. I don’t know. It’s a pretty dark song… Lots of ominous synth crescendo’s etc…

MediaFire – Deadmau5 – Bye Friend (Original Mix)

Next up is Herve aka The Count. He’s put his electro/fidget touch on Depeche Mode’s single “Peace.” The fix stays true to Herve’s fidget explosion style. A melodic-heavy bassline, with chopped up vocals. This track is definitely dance floor worthy.  Enjoy!

MediaFire – Depeche Mode – Peace  (Herves Warehouse Frequencies)

Steve Aoki has seriously grimed up this N.A.S.A track. Its filthy with some nice clean breaks that give the vocals room to breath! A dance floor tune for sure! The standard 2/3rds in break is quiet interesting and leave you with some interesting mixing possibilities!

MediaFire – N.A.S.A. – Gifted (Steve Aoki Remix)

Yeah Yeah Yeah…. It’s another Yeah Yeah Yeahs remix! This time L.A. Boxers have put their dub touch to it… Not as good at the  Johnny Roxx fidget mix it’s still a good tune. Not massively interesting but it gives those that are fans of the original to drop it in a dub set.

MediaFire – Yeah Yeah Yeahs – Heads Will Roll (L.A. Boxers Dub Remix)

Zombie Nation is releasing a new EP on Turbo Records, which includes remixes by Proxy, Shadow Dancer, Arveene and Misk, and many others. Zombielicious Remixes is avaliable to buy here. This was my favourite tune from EP.

MediaFire – Zombie Nation – Mystery Meat Affair (Shadow Dancer Remix)

Yeah Yeah Yeahs – Heads We Roll (Johnny Roxx Remix)

Okay so i’ve finally found something worth blogging 🙂 – Swiss producer Johnny Roxx!

This tune is a little corker. Certainly electro with hints of some Jack Beats esque dub thrown in. If you like JB you’ll love this tune. Wonky baselines and awesome fidget house undertones are what this track is all about!

Queen – Bohemian Rhapsody (Schizofonics Remix)

schizofonics

Schizofonics is a Dublin-based DJ duo made of Shortie and M… and man did this remix make me giggle – not at it… but with it. I simply love that this has been done… and that it has been done so well. This song was always gasping for the electro treatment and now it’s got the dosage it required.

The drop isn’t particularly clever but it made me smile from ear to ear. One to drop in the clubs fo sure!

MediaFire – Queen – Bohemian Rhapsody (Schizofonics Remix)

MediaFire – DatA – Rapture (Schizofonic Remix)

Leon Jean Marie – Bring It On (Rusko Remix)

Okay so the top5 is going to be put on hold this week. I simply can’t find that many tunes worth blogging. What I HAVE found is this dirty little Rusko remix.

Rusko continues to amaze. He’s growing himself a nice little back catalogue of heavy hitter after heavy hitter. His grimey style and brilliant execution are getting him noticed by some big names.

Word on the blogosphere is that Rusko’s just finished an official remix for Mr West. If this is legit then well done Kanye *pats head*.

…Until then… enjoy…
