DUBBED OUT PRESENTS - HATCHA & FRIENDS 23/08/14

We review Dubbed Out's 5th birthday party!
R-Zone 11 - R-Zone - R-Zone

The 11th R-Zone starts off with the cavernous bassy techno and slamming rhythms of ‘Visions of a Deepweb’. The track veers off into a massive acid segue before tailing off into droning ambience. Clearly whoever is behind this episode has used this outro to set the scene for the other tracks; ‘Xochis Awakening’ is all hushed textures and melodic chimes, while ‘Positive Sequence’ is all swirling, soft focus soundscapes.

44 Squadron EP - Heretic - Relish

When not stirring things up on the floors of the modern discotheque as one half of the Eskimo Twins, Timothy Clerkin is dropping minimal synth/EBM bombs on the cool Blitz Kids of today as Heretic. This latest EP for Robbie ‘Headman’ Insinna’s Relish is an icy cool tribute to the industrial, new beat sound of '80s Belgium with tracks like ‘Flesh’ nodding to the sound of Front 242 and ‘Soviet’ to Liaisons Dangereuses.

Bass Face - Acti x Audiofreq - CDR

An exciting collaboration here between the pioneer of the ‘Subground’ or ‘qult’ sound Acti, teaming up with one of the hottest and most versatile hardstyle producers Audiofreq. The result is an 130bpm banger, with a super-catchy female rap and euphoric melody that builds to a brutal synth-kick drop. The mid point of the track builds to a climactic 100bpm trap/electro breakdown, for all the sexy ladies to get their twerk on! Very cool, unique track that will remain a staple in my sets for the foreseeable future.

Sofrito Super Single Series - Esnard Boisdur vs. Frankie Francis & Simbad - Sofrito

The Island of Guadeloupe and Gwo Ka (the folkloric rhythm of Guadeloupe) provide the musical inspiration for this latest Sofrito version excursion. In particular Gwo Ka vocalist Esnard Boisdur, who is musically re-housed amidst the Detroit skyline, courtesy of a deep and hypnotic, slow burning 4/4-based rework at the hands of label regular Frankie Francis and Gilles Peterson cohort Simbad. Nice stuff!
