Camo & Krooked – Cross the Line

9 Oct



Austrian producers Camo & Krooked released their 14 track LP on Hospital Records entitled Cross The Line last week. The tracks have been just sitting and waiting for me to listen to, I finally got around to listening to them this morning and it was the exact wake up to this slow Sunday I needed. The album has a wide variety of bass music ranging from liquid Drum & Bass, to Electro, to Dubstep. I was never that big of a fan of Drum & Bass but when done right the product is, in my opinion, something that pumps you up more than Dubstep ever can. The production quality on this album truly impresses me and if I could post the whole album I would, but here are a couple of songs to give you a sample of Camo & Krooked‘s latest release. I hope it helps you out of the weekend glow like it did for me.

Bassnectar at the Hollywood Palladium Preview

5 Sep

Last October, Bassnectar threw down an incredible performance for Los Angeles at the Wiltern and I am very happy that I was there to witness it. This Friday, we’re getting the chance to experience the bass and mayhem yet again, but this time, the party will be at the Hollywood Palladium. It is set to be an excellent night for all the bass heads that attend, especially with the Colorado-based opener, Big Gigantic. WEST LA CNCT will be covering the event, so keep an eye out for photos and a review next Monday! I couldn’t be more excited to see Bassnectar for my fourth time, so I hope to see you there to party with one of the best DJ’s around.

Monday Goodies #5

1 Aug

I’m getting back into the swing of things after a little vacation over the weekend. The picture above was taken when I was backpacking in Sequoia and the trail passed by that unbelievable view. Anyway, here is some tunage to start your week off. If you have heard of Angus & Julia Stone’s “Big Jet Plane,” the Hook N Sling & Goodwill track, “Take You Higher,” will sound very familiar. Gemini seems to never let me down with his massive, yet melodic, dubstep sound. The Brookes Brothers took drum and bass in a different, more subtle, direction with “Daybreak” and I like it a lot. Have a great week!

London Elektricity- Meteorites (featuring Elsa Esmeralda)

30 Apr

This is my latest liquid drum & bass discover and it is quite good. I love the contrast of mellow melodies with a fast dnb tempo. Piano in just about any song is a plus in my book and it fits in well in this track. Check it out.

Brookes Brothers- Big Blue

Seeing Chase & Status on Saturday gave me a bit of an overload of drum & bass, but it was as expected and it was great. I haven’t posted any dnb recently, so I felt I should today. Here’s a cool new track from the Brookes Brothers and an oldie from Chase & Status!

DnB: Gemini- Without You

14 Apr

When I hear the name Gemini, I usually think dubstep, but today, it means some good liquid drum & bass. This new track, “Without You,” has some elements of trance, which sound excellent. Enjoy the liquid!

Nu:Tone- Shine In (Feat. Natalie Williams)

11 Apr

Nu:Tone is a drum & bass producer from Cambridge, England. This tune has a sound that is pretty unique for the genre and I like it a lot. The bright synths used are definitely appropriate for the title and subject of the song. Enjoy.

Blokhe4d- The Way Life Used To Be

5 Apr

Blokhe4d is a drum & bass duo from London town. This is the only tune I’ve heard of theirs and it’s awesome. Once you get past the intro, which is about a minute, it drops into some cool drumstep, then on the second drop it speeds up to regular drum & bass tempo. Listen to this for a little more energy on this Tuesday!

Netsky- Let’s Leave Tomorrow (feat. Bev Lee Harling)

26 Mar

I believe I have the liquid dnb fever. A couple of nights ago I went on a liquid drum & bass downloading spree. The mix of soft, mellow, sounds with a fast drum & bass tempo makes for a good balance of opposites. This is my latest and greatest discovery!
