Invoking the classic sounds chosen by the originators of sample based hip-hop. Created in collaboration with Arthouse Acoustics, we recorded live upright pianos, soulful guitars and classy trumpet lines. These Melodic Stacks were polished, mixed and mastered and then resampled and re-imagined creating a complimentary collection. Posted by step one at Wednesday, June 29, 1 comment:.

Biggie and Mase rhyming over the 'Benjamins' beat at Angie Martinez's birthday party in Quality isn't flawless but I hadn't heard it before so here you go. I had one ready aswell but as it was a mid 90s House mix you can probably live without it. Might throw something on here soon if I get time. Posted by step one at Saturday, May 07, 3 comments:.

Haven't had time to blog much recently but I've been wanting to do this post for a while, and seeing as I recently got engaged to an actual real life female woman I thought now would be appropriate! Biz Markie 'Studda Step' Koopsta Knicca ft DJ Paul JR Writer 'Xtacy' Cool Kids 'Gone Fishing' Didn't see that last one coming did you?
The original stands up as a great track in it's own right, and is pretty much impossible to sound bad over see also: Ike's Mood and Everybody Loves The Sunshine. I couldn't find the right version of it on Youtube but I'm using it on a forthcoming mix. As you can see from the list, it's use has transcended Rap's regions and sub genres.
In more recent times it's been predominantly enjoyed by the Southern states, probably due to the tempo. The track's impact is somewhat overlooked as its not the standard UBB fodder thats been rinsed to death by DJs and freestyle ciphers but maybe that's whats given it more longevity than Apache or The Big Beat, and for that we should be thankful.
If there's any decent songs I've missed feel free to link them in the comments section. Posted by step one at Sunday, April 17, 3 comments:. After a series of essential mixes, Sparkle Motion take it to the next level Posted by step one at Wednesday, April 13, No comments:.
A quick run down then. Also, I'm pretty sure its the song where Jadakiss coined the phrase "top 5 dead or alive". Mack 10 is distinctly average but had a good eye for a collaboration and has a few gems in his catalogue. The bootleg remix of 'Hate Me Now' is from a 12" I picked up last week and gives the song a more subtle vibe so it works quite well in a mix like this.
The Natural Elements joint is borderline jiggy and sounds slightly Neptunes-ish. Been enjoying that since hearing it on a J Grand tape I posted last year. Might work on that and post it as a seperate track. I've had a few problems recording audio recently as the programme I use keeps buffering. As a result there's 3 or 4 glitches where the song skips slightly. Working on resolving the issue think its to do with latency - any tips let me know but didnt want to not post anything in the meantime.

It's a track that I've seen mentioned in request threads and most wanted lists over the years but even in an era where pretty much every demo, alernate version and Austrian promo CD single has been uploaded, this has remained elusive. In contrast, acquiring the dirty version was the result of finding a Japanese record store with some poor quality streaming audio samples of this bootleg 12" , and then a seller in France who wasn't charging the earth for a copy the extornionate shipping costs from the US to the UK are a whole 'nother topic though.

Pretty much a compliation of all the bangers from Enjoy Mac Mall - Get Right Outkast - Elevators It is somewhat of a victim to its early successes, though. Come the break, and its comparatively underwhelming main riff reveal, the wheels do wobble a touch.
I tried to be as creative as possible with this. Big riffs, psy-trance bassline and big room stabs. Was an honour to remix for Paul and to also collaborate on a few upcoming projects. The start of the drop brings only fleeting tension relief, as the Italian once again cracks open the breakbeat tin.
Raking the riff over the top of it, the mod wheel begins to twitch and when it does, it twitches hard. Superb remix from Cold Rush, who always deliver the uplifting touch which recalls the old Anjuna days.
I find uplifting trance templates are pretty similar nowadays but Will always brings a slight twist to his productions, which I always dig. Some of the best videos from my shows have been whilst dropping this. Massive reaction on the dancefloor and its good to see my local boy and close mate Standerwick killing it in the does frame the song closer to the Beatport charts regularly.
My go-to label when looking for new stuff. Good to see Lange releasing some more it only takes some visceral to of the harder sounds at the moment. Detboi delivers four slices of recalibrated junglist pressure for the dark bpm crew that is Keysound. Tried and tested in the club, the slow melding breaks might wrongfoot you, but the ideas and execution of it all is so so right.
Jules October is a bit of an unsung hero in my eyes. His DJ sets and production work — and even his interviews — just have a way of sucking you in. I do love that Drew is just doing him, though. A inch prospect like nothing else on this page. This is my personal favourite, but the whole release is really impressive. SAE that approaches the techno tempo from a slightly different angle.
Contorted, choked synth-work wiggles about in the middle distance whilst the drums just power on — sounding so well rounded and grey. Saying that though, it feels like Lokane definitely understands the idea of driving vocal ticks better than most, and his application of that command upon the microsample in the title track of his debut EP for Infinite Machine is fantastic.
Butterz have become that powerful a force lately. Reid and the somewhat prolific London vocalist ItsNate works really well. Strange, surreal beatmaking and rhyming par excellence. Get cognizant immediately. Ukranian-American man of mystery follows up on the intrigue caused by last year's self-titled album which a lot of people thought was by Nas under a pseudonym with this longplaying EP, presumably judging by the samples inspired and fired by Sam Kinison, comedy maverick and total legend.
Lots to get stuck into here — intriguing samples and a production style seemingly uninfluenced by anything else currently going on in rap.
Like last year's first transmissions, you can tie this in with Action Bronson and a generally retrograde vibe and disgust with the present in rap — all of which would be counterintuitive and unforgiveable if the results weren't so compelling.
Find it on Soundcloud and drink deep. Nice to hear Pap finally getting some worthwhile productions behind his undeniable flow. Haven't got round to 'You Can't Stop Destiny' the new album yet but if this is any pointer, should be doozie. Massively amused though by some listeners' reactions to this Premo monster, a prevailing motif being that they can't understand why his voice is 'drowned out' on this track.
That's Premo, you dumb motherfuckers! We're now dealing with a generation of hip-hop fans whose. Great track, get it. I was as hyped for this as I was when I was a kid and you heard rumbles that Gang Starr or Jeru were going to drop something new. You'll be glad to hear not a lot's changed since that superb selftitled debut — gnarly Primo beats, Adrian Younge lacing the whole with swathes of gorgeously detailed grainy strings and jazz, Logic and Royce swapping killer lines, and some scratches from Primo that are just so exquisitely timed and frabjous that three minutes is way too short to fully enjoy it.
Until a new album drops, keep hitting rewind on this little beauty. Just utterly exquisite. Golden Rules' just-dropped LP on Lex, 'Golden Ticket' will be palmed off as a leftfield contribution to this year's greatest hip-hop but really what I hear is a massive ongruity here with Outkast at their trippiest I can't be the only one who hears Andre in Eric Biddiness' voice.
Absolutely no reason on earth why this shouldn't be huge — a gorgeous. A for so long? I'm an idiot — this it utterly ace, a leak from their new tape that kicks off in a welter of wibble and bloopy madness, then streamlines itself into a raw stomping Dilla-style thrum of wonder, Butch Arkas and Kyote Noir swapping lines that recall everything that can be awesome and fresh about London rap music when it's delivered with such uncut ferocity and strength.
The mixtape this comes from, 'Live Under No Authority' is now available for nowt from a broadband connection near you and should be downloaded as soon as humanly possible. Meek hates Drake who hates Mill who digs Ghostface who hates Action, and who the fuck cares about any of this b.
This whole idea that ghost-written hip-hop is. Muhfuggas need to get the fuck off Twitter and grow the fuck up! The track sucks by the way, as you'd expect from MM. Soundtrack to a summer we never got. Make it happen every time you press play. Most of the world needs to catch up to his work anyway. Hands up, party hardstyle with a super-catchy vocal, bouncy melody and powerful kicks to smash any hard dancefloor. This classic remix finally gets a release.
Rapidfire snares make this breakcore track sound just as fresh today. To see this track rock the endshow at Defqon. It gave us goosebumps the first time we heard it like it does ever since. This melody, tempo changes, breaks and sounds describe our definition of a solid and crowd rocking track. We tried our best to create a vocal track with depth and meaning. So happy with this one! Grade-A sound design and triple-A mixing skills, combined with a solid build-up, is what makes this track a dancefloor bomb.
It has that typical anthem-ish feel around it and is definitely playlist material this summer. This Lose My Mind combination is always a guaranteed win. A track pumped with emotion, and a melody like this will get the people to go crazy everytime.
Full support. Awesome rework of this '90s hardcore classic! This time brought up to date in the hard, raw stylings of Deepak alongside the original producer of the classic.
Despite being somewhat slower in tempo than the hardcore original, they manage to keep all the energy and pace that made the original such a hit. A great reinterpretation of a classic that should keep old skool fans as happy as the younger audience that might not even know the original. There was a lot of negative exposure of trap music in the hardstyle scene initially due to the uncleared use of many samples, but now the waters have calmed, there are some very interesting crossovers happening.
The result is a ragga vocal-led dancefloor track, with the first drop being more urban sounding, and the second four-to-the-floor hard. This is picking up plays from the key players in both scenes, and we hope it will cement the relationship between these two styles further.
A bouncy hardstyle classic from yesteryear that has been left alone for just long enough to make this remix a super-exciting addition to DJs playlists, and fresh on the dancefloors. Keeping all the elements that made the original so fun and catchy and adding fresh reverse bass and big kick sections, this one will be a hit in the clubs for years to come yet again!
Dirty Workz are at the top of their game right now, delivering big summer smashers for the festival season and this new male vocal. Featuring a well sung vocal, euphoric summery melody and tight drops, it's the perfect backdrop to tie up the summer festival season. M nails it here with a quirky 8-bit main melody which isn't overused, dropping with real subgroundinspired power with heavy kicks, a pounding bassline and a screechy top-line.
Rebourne just keeps doing it; releasing euphoric trance-led productions with a hardstyle flavour, allowing them to be picked up and played right across the board. With many of the key trance acts such as Armin van Buuren and Dash Berlin finishing their sets with euphoric hardstyle remixes of their tracks, this fits right into the trend.
My pick of the LP is 'Unacceptable', a collab with underground producer Ophidian. Promo has always been outspoken about his passionate views on the scene, and this track is equal measures dancefloor banger and a political statement about the scene today, commenting on the origins of the scene and questioning if it has lost its way.
Fusing hip-hop lyrics with hardstyle to great effect here, the Psyko Punkz deliver one of their strongest tracks to date. This hooks you in from the start with a simplistic, catchy intro melody with short snippets of the rap vocals leading up to a festival-sized main hook and breakdown, adding more lyrics but knowing when to hold back as to not overdo it. Taking Pskyo Punkz back to the top of the game! Typically, it was a firmly rooted, smokily dubbed-out house affair full of backroom grooves all imbued with a personal sadness at the loss of his father.
For his next trick, G sticks to his elongated, drum-driven format, but more kinks appear along the way. The mood is less stoned and whiskey-soaked and more turbocharged and visceral. Reverb features heavily, tracks have a little more head room and range from flappy, corrugated things to more churning, slow-motion wobblers.
Andrew Rafter. Got anything good? A case in point would be that this is his third album since he started his career in electronic music in earnest something like five years ago. It can take some artists a decade to produce one. This new project finds him flexing some different muscles than the house-based business he has become known for. There is, of course, some sterling house music here too. Ben Arnold. His profile has risen considerably in that time and with it his ambitions and songwriting skills.
Ben Murphy. Hearing that Berlin techno luminary Paul Kalkbrenner had signed to a seriously major label, Columbia, initially seemed surprising. Tristan Parker. Chris Barker and Simon Murray have released little in the last year or so, but now we know why: they have been locked away working on a debut album. Rather than ditching the dancefloor entirely, the pair explore its intergalactic fringes with robust hardware jams that range from nervetwitching and propulsive to synth-laden and suspensory.
As such, never was a production pair more appropriately. Like UR, he refines elements of funk, jazz and synth melodies into a potent techno tincture. But Santiago also taps into sounds derived from his Latino heritage to make him stand out from the pack. As well as always wearing a fine actual hat, Justin Robertson has worn many metaphorical ones with just as much swagger.
By now he is something of a UK institution having excelled at tech house, acid house, Hacienda-era Balearic and after touring the festival circuit with his own live band. His most recent focus has been on machinemade, tripped-out psychedelic disco as Deadstock 33s, and now comes a second full-length under that alias that is one of his most complete artistic statements to date.
Featuring 12 robust club cuts that come with flabby bass, alien synthesisers and a future sense of robotic boogie, it is a mind-expanding affair that melts dub with disco, chug with acid and oriental synthscapes with haunting and spaced-out sonics. Kristan J Caryl. A mixed bag PAN-POT have been releasing music for a decade now, and even turned out a full-length debut album as early as It rather went under the radar though, and in the years since, the German pair of Tassilo Ippenberger and Thomas Benedix have become a festival headlining act heralded for their live techno chops.
As such, the proposition of a full-length from the pair is rather daunting, because few producers or even fully-fledged bands manage to carry over the thrill of live music to the recorded format, especially with a schedule as gruelling as the one this pair entertain. When the pair move away from the bigger techno tracks they can easily bang out by now, they start to sound a lot more interesting and singular.
As a sample of what to expect from two fine live practitioners this is an able statement, but as a lasting electronic full length, it leaves you feeling rather unfulfilled. The House The Vaults Built Mark Nicholas has been flying under the radar since the late s, with some of his releases from that time still commanding a following and high prices on Discogs. His productions have a jazzy, soulful house sound with a slight hip-hop bent due to their short, repetitive sampled loops that sound very much like they were recorded and triggered during live jams.
Zara Wladawsky. Charlotte Lucy Cijffers. Who is Grant? I mean, really, who the hell is he? Is he a he? Is he a she? And who is Lauren Bacall? Perhaps enough, then, about who, and more about why we should care. Eight tracks of life-affirming, emotive house music which should, if you have even a scrap of soul in you, make you fall in love with it all over again. It loses a half point out of 10 because nothing is perfect. But this is perilously close. A dark and atmospheric album with inspiration from all corners of the electronic universe, combining distinct elements of drum and bass, but there are also distinct elements of grime, garage, techno and house.
Whisky Kicks. Despite its nursery rhyme title, the third album from this avant-garde New York rock group is distinctly short of tunes you can whistle. Paul Clarke. Settling further into his new home at Ki Records, the Russian producer serves up a full-length LP brimming with textural ambience, glitchy tempos and glacial passages that are as much for introspective solo listening as they are for the dancefloor.
New exhibitors, new panels and new in-show events have been added to the running order, and the line-up of manufacturers who already use BPM as a testbed to show off their range of existing products — as well all the new kit they are going to drop into the public domain — is meatier than ever. But there will still be plenty of chances to pick up all sorts of goodies at the show.

It sounds warm, rich and colourful. I have used the emulation of this but nothing beats plugging in from the source. It fits my studio better than the elephant-sized Triton. This is probably why I am still yet to move onto Logic X.
They seem to have a clean reference without colouring the sound too much, and are the right size for my room. Like any monitors — get used to them. Playing and tweaking the MS20 is my trademark on stage. I like the freedom of having no memory patches, and this has taught me to learn it inside out.
People love the analogue madness I bring! Just sling a delay on it and you are set. The thing I love most about it is its raw-as-fuck oscillators and its screaming resonant high-pass and low-pass filters in series. The filters are so cool when playing live, as I can use them like an extremely versatile and funky EQ unit.
The new version of this unique FX controller now offers more features and better performance with an all-new pimped up design to make it even better when using it with smart-phone devices. It is fun and simply to. Once plugged in, you will be up and running in no time.

DJ Mag tracked him down before his next jaunt to grab a moment of his time London has much more to offer, on the whole, than Berlin and Detroit but Berlin is still the best in the world for electronic music. Producing came later, after I started to hang out with the Beretta crew.
Brian Kage helped Seth [Troxler] and I a lot at the beginning and sort of set us on a path to make our own stuff. It was a slow process the first few years but as my skills improved and I bought more music and made more music, the passion just continued to grow — and still is growing.
What was the vibe that you wanted to create with the new record? I wanted to make something like that for a while. Once it was time to put the EP together, I had five tracks in total that I sent over to Lee, Shaun and our label manager. After that, my lovely wife steps in and mixes it down for real and then it goes to mastering, after I sit with her and tweak what she has done. The next step is to start learning from her.
I say February because, given current timelines with pressing and distribution and once we get a. The important thing is to get it right. Also, still noodling around with a second album with Cesar Merveille and a solo album.
The latter will definitely come to fruition once I can get set up in NYC once the shipping container has arrived. HYPE Sounds that have to be heard to be believed. A synth with the WOW factor that can find its home in any dance music genre. Omnisphere 2. Finally, a plugin that has shaped. Now after all Omnisphere2. The name itself taken its place at the top of the pile. The depth and body of the sounds most powerful music creation products in on offer are simply breathtaking. When DJ Mag Tech first ran the upgrade Stylus a powerful groove synth that has package which was a simple process within featured on many a dance floor filler and itself and called up a software channel on Trilogy a truly impressive Bass synthesizer the DAW, we were greeted with the familiar that has torn apart many bass-bins in blue-looking GUI, which instantly brought its time.
All these three soft synths were unleashed to the masses in and reined a smile to our faces. Once we started tinkering away on the supreme for an eternity. The sounds were immense, and we immediately spent the next five hours! Omni- sphere 2. This level of inspiration is surpassed on any synth. It is obvious that we are fans, but only because Omnisphere 2. The reason why this Power Synth sounds so amazing is down to the engine that drives the plugin.

When we first started working on this review, it was destined to be a more technical read — principally highlighting the mechanics of Omnisphere. However, as we played with it more, we thought this level of detail would be far more technical than what we wanted to relay. Basically, we hope that this review will fire up your tastebuds to go and get it, and at least play with it.
