      This thread has me on a fast track path to requiring replacement car speakers!

      Yesterday, I listened to two of the posted mixes I DL'ed in a row while driving home from a customer site and by the end of the trip, I could smell the copper coils on my stock Jetta speakers!
      ...you know, that electrical fire type smell?

      Yep. Gotta love this thread. It delivers.

      Im on dnbforum, but I never post, only to request sets and download others. Cant get Bassman Birthday Bash sets from there anymore though, wounded.

      Anymore dubby ragga sets coming through, Ive rinsed the others so far and cant deal with this skippy drum n bass that Pendulum have caused people to create.


    12. 07-23-2009 10:22 AM #117
      There’s good stuff of all types on here. Download ‘em all and delete what you don’t want after giving them a listen. Oh and feel free to add some jungle tings yaself mate.

      what exactly about their music would you say is "mainstream" . Last time I checked , their music was barely dnb, but whatever it is, they dont play it anywhere I have been.

      Pendulum is a cancer that should be treated by a dose of Breakage.

      While pendulum get some radio play in the UK, “mainstream” may be a bit of an overstatement as far as US market is concerned, but pendulum certainly took steps in that direction. Pendulum used to be more traditional styled D&B when they first came round. “Still Grey” is about the only tune of theirs I ever liked, but I still think it’s well crafted to this day. Later on their music turned into overly simplistic annoying cheesy BS.

      I’ve given this loads of thought and basically it’s unavoidable. There will always be those that take a traditionally underground style and dumb-it-down stylistically and technically to make it appeal to a larger audience – and therefore be more profitable. Look at hip hop now... The game is totally ruined as far as mainstream goes. Lil Wayne is garbage yet these youngins think he’s god. There’s still plenty of quality artists that stay true to the roots, but its all back underground on smaller labels and such. You might have to dig, but its there. Drum & bass is no different really... eventually there will be more mainstream acceptance – and a counter movement in the independent market.

      DJ Hype & DJ Zinc - 3 deck mix-up – 1999?

      Mediafire

      From thissceneisdead.com:
      “Pulled this old DJ Mag magazine covermount cd from 1999 for the rip treatment for you today. It’s only a 25min blast, though is packed with some seriously rude 90’s steez D&B bass, as well as the trademark scratch effects of these two DJ mix masters. And oh my… the sub bass on the last tune : Species. Murder! Fitting that it gets a play on a day like today too. LDN is basking in the glow of some super spring sunshine, and is a reminder of summer day’s gone by when I used to rock this on my hybrid multi speaker/ multi amp audio set-up back in the warmer summer sun in South Africa. Good times!”

      Bio:
      Redeyes emerged as a DJ on the French drum & bass scene in 1999, quickly gaining a reputation for his eclectic selection and tight mixing skills. In 2001 he formed part of the Audiabrasive collective and soon embarked on a number of residences in Toulouse, supporting the likes of Fabio & Grooverider, Bryan Gee, Ray Keith, Craggz & Parallel Forces, Bad Company, Kasra, Break, Kemal, Ruffstuff, High Tone, Le Lutin (Audio Unit).

      More recently bookings have extended abroad, from the legendary Swerve sessions at the END nightclub, Movement @ Bar Rhumba, 1xtra BBC radio (guest to Ldouble connection show), to Bangkok, Pekin, Hambourg, Paris, Budapest, Ljubjana, Vienna...

      Initially listening to hard rock as a kid, Redeye’s ears soon caught onto hip hop as it emanated from across the Atlantic and into France during the late 1980’s. Record digging culture then unlocked his ears to the wider gamut of Afro-American music – jazz, soul, RnB, dub and funk, while an open-ness for the rapidly developing landscape of electronic sounds drew Redeyes to the jungle sound.

      It was only fairly recently (2003) that Redeyes’ passion for music urged him to take the step into production, and his rapid development is a testament to the effectiveness of tools such as AIM and readily available music production software, which have proved powerful catalysts to emerging talent these past few years.

      Today Redeyes’ productions are played by Roni Size, DJ Marky, Gilles Peterson, Laurent Garnier, LTJ Bukem, Fabio, Grooverider, DJ Zinc, Bailey and Nu Tone, his tunes get regular support on radio (Radio One/ 1Xtra, Kool FM, Life FM, Origin FM..) and with releases on Bingo, Creative Source, Innerground, Brigand, Spearhead, remixes for the famous Tru Thoughts records (home of Alice Russel, Quantic, ect)…it looks as if we’ve only just heard the tip of the iceberg in terms of his output.

      For all those looking for that ragga jungle goodness...
      http://www.goldenerajungle.com

      Plenty of old school jungle mixes and newer biz with that old school vibe. I'll post up some of my mixes eventually. Aside from all the newer indie ragga, 90% of my record collection isn't any newer than 96. Plenty of cats still chopping up amens, thinks, and all dem classics. I need to make a mix of nothing but my own tunes sometime, but I don't like playing cds, don't have serato and i'm never happy with my mastering to waste on getting dubs cut.

      to all original badman junglists


    30. 07-27-2009 04:19 PM #135
      NICE, thanks zero. I do love some oldschool now and then. I'm eager to hear your works man. Respekt to you.


      btw - Cann Ox is the shiz. Big up yaself

      Quote, originally posted by dubass »
      CHURCH! nothing like some breakage to get that pendulum taste out of yer mouth

      While pendulum get some radio play in the UK, “mainstream” may be a bit of an overstatement as far as US market is concerned, but pendulum certainly took steps in that direction. Pendulum used to be more traditional styled D&B when they first came round. “Still Grey” is about the only tune of theirs I ever liked, but I still think it’s well crafted to this day. What is really the root of most criticism is their discovery/popularization of the production technique of ‘ducking’ the track under the snare.

      Without getting overly geeky, all music these days is processed with dynamic compression to some degree. This process brings the bulk of the track volume closer to a specified peak. This is nothing new... but pendulum took it a step further by actually forcing all other levels to compress under (or around?) the main snare. This is what gives their tracks (and most neurofunk) that feel of plodding along with the snare driving the mix.

      This is really not a breakthrough as far as general audio production goes, but it was new to underground dnb production so a lot of people got swept up in it. (Subfocus springs to mind...) Now there’s a whole rack of producers/djs around making crap that is waaaaay over compressed and has little dynamic range.

      Pop music fell into this trap with compression well before dnb. Many music connoisseurs contend that music needs “room to breathe” and overcompression is an evil that kills quality music. That may be a personal call to a degree, but I *will say that when taken too far dynamic compression can make the midrange and upper frequencies seem to overpower the bass. Obviously in drum and BASS music this is not desirable.

      THIS is what most people are referring to when they say pendulum went mainstream. I can’t really disagree.

      To add to it those silly Aussies have recently gone and started playing rock covers of their dnb tracks live. I could barely believe it myself until I attended a show at HOB in Chicago. It was easily one of the worst live shows I’ve seen, including all genres. It pissed me off so bad. They ran around up there playing poorly over backing tracks. ?Ugggh I almost vomited. I guess this is even more of a mainstream move. Whatever the case, it is definitely NOT the type of genre-expanding experimentation that I sometimes enjoy!

      I’ve given this loads of thought and basically it’s unavoidable. There will always be those that take a traditionally underground style and dumb-it-down stylistically and technically to make it appeal to a larger audience – and therefore be more profitable. Look at hip hop now... The game is totally ruined as far as mainstream goes. Lil Wayne is garbage yet these youngins think he’s god. There’s still plenty of quality artists that stay true to the roots, but its all back underground on smaller labels and such. You might have to dig, but its there. Drum & bass is no different really... eventually there will be more mainstream acceptance – and a counter movement in the independent market.

      You're trying to relate the hating of Pendulum to mastering/mixing techniques That doesn't have anything to do with why people hate on them. 99% of all music these days is over compressed and over limited. Blame it on the loudness wars, not Pendulum.

      People hate Pendulum because their tunes have no substance and basslines are mad cheesy. Their tunes are on the likes of Fresh when he came back in the 2000s. Some people call it clownstep. Some people even think it's jump up (don't know their history cause, they'd know what real jump up is if they were around in the mid 90s).

      Compression and limiting has been used in electronic music forever, it's not anything new that Pendulum brought. It's usually the staple of electronic music because people listen to it loud and you get the extra loudness out of compressing and limiting. Considering they were on some big labels and even had a lot of stuff mastered and cut by Stu at Metropolis, I would say that the tunes were mastered properly and not over compressed or over limited. I couldn't imagine Stu putting out crap with all the dynamics cut. The tunes just don't have dynamics because they are mainly only using synthesized sounds for their drums and not original break beats. I don't think they are really using ducking with the snare either, if they are, it's extremely subtle because the whole tune would get quiet and sound pumping every time the snare hit. If anything, they just mixed the snares louder than everything else. All the synthesized "non-human, computer sounding (no groove)" drum rolls and cheesy synths are what people hate on.

      The only thing that Pendulum did was make pop dnb. Sadly, a lot of the kids in my area dig that stuff. I'm glad they're mainly just a band now. Not trying to argue or anything, but just dropping some knowledge cause I've been in the game for awhile and seen it's transformations first hand. Usually when someone like Pendulum comes out, it's like a nice new bandwagon has arrived. A lot of people that were on that bandwagon moved to the dubstep scene though...but you can always get a few hooked on the origins, and once they know the origins, they start seeing the origins in newer music and newer genres. It's like a game of never ending sampling at different bpms with different song structures for different genres.

      I don't even listen to dubstep aside from mixes my friends made or when I go out to a show, but I played this party the other night and heard some of the most ridiculous dubstep remixes of classic ragga tunes. Think the dude said most of them were Afterdark (Itchy Robot's crew). I love how old tracks evolve into new genres.

      I actually get what your saying and mostly agree, guess i didn't get my main point across effectively. pendulum popularized a sound - for a minute. they were central in one subgenres take on the volume wars of which you speak. Like you said, the drums are often cheesy and artificial, thats one side effect of the overall design. Its all audio engineering... chicken and egg stuff. Yeah they weren't the only ones, but they did run with it like hell. The techniques and the music structure/content go hand in hand. the simplistic sound is influenced by the production techniques and vice versa.

      If you wanna talk about cheesy synth leads and lame b-lines... damn man, hate to say it, but there is a TON of that in too much electronic music... I mean, not *all* of it, but you can find it in all subgenres. have you listened to any wobble or jumptech lately? garage? grime? how about top 40 hip hop? urrrgh. the clownstep you mentioned... yeah... we're talkin bout the same thing broseph. The real point of my prior pendulum tangent post [is there ever really a point??] was the last paragraph.

      Its not necessarily pendulum I hate on when you get down to it, they were just one scapegoat. the real issue is crappy soulless music with no content. there's plenty of that to go round. there will always be crap music. unfortunately because of ease of networking these days far too much of it. (we all know pop music sucks ass, that's why we are on this thread more or less.) BUT, there will also always be artists that are true to the origins and the roots. Fads will come and go, but the original sound will NEVAR die. That can be said of Any genre man - rock, hip hop, dubstep, d&b, hip hop, reggae, whatever.

      19. Moby - Porcaline Remix [unOfficial remix]

      A few things should come to mind when you think of Atlantic Connection—diverse production skills, a unique approach and a solid musical foundation. Nathan Hayes, aka Atlantic Connection, began his music career in 1999 as a producer for the Drum n Bass powerhouse Basic Operations. He quickly became one of the highest-selling artists in America’s electronic music history.

      After solidifying his place among the ranks of the electronic music elite, Hayes launched Atlantic Connection in 2006. He chose to work with record labels very selectively this time around. Atlantic Connection released songs on Creative Source, Soul:R, CIA, Advanced, Dispatch, Soundtrax, Liquid V, Spearhead and Fokuz Records.

      Hayes then found his true passion—operating his own record labels. Former Nu Urban UK Public Relations honcho, Jeryl Wilton, was largely responsible for launching Atlantic Connection back into the spotlight in 2006. In early 2007, Hayes had several productive meetings with his management, and he teamed up again with Wilton to launch Westbay Recordings.

      Hayes quickly found himself the center of a great deal of press attention. From message board forums to blogs and magazines, including XLR8, Knowledge, ATM, Rinse and Bassline, he spent a lot of time explaining what he was up to and what he planned to do next.

      In 2007, Westbay made its debut release: Atlantic Connection’s “Whatchu Know” ft. MC Deviant. This tune is a superior blend of percussive hits and vocal swagger. At the time, Hayes was taking some serious headspace to reflect on his move from North Carolina to Los Angeles; a move that would change his life forever. Inspired by this change, Westbay also released “Leaving Home,” a track that blends effortless class with deep emotion.

      Westbay Recordings got an impressive response, and the hundreds of devoted fans that knew Hayes as the pitch-hitter of Basic Operations devoured the new releases coming out of Westbay. A huge string of hit releases followed from Atlantic Connection, including the might “Can’t Destroy Love,” “Rocksteady” and “Grapevines” (ft. Makoto).

      By late 2008, Atlantic Connection produced an LP that “changed the way producers are [sic] writing albums.” Tommorow’s Not Enough was a 15-track long masterpiece featuring a huge host of guest artists and showcasing Hayes’s genre-crossing talent. Tali, Armanni Reign, Lynx, Minds One, L.A. Riots, Hot Pink Delorean, McClain Sullivan, Julz the Huntress, Youngman MC and several others all lent their talents, and Westbay Recordings was able to show exactly how top notch of a production it had become.

      Westbay Recordings is now home to Atlantic Connection’s music and the music of some of the most talented producers that Hayes has encountered. It is truly a top-notch production.

      Tomorrow’s Not Enough kicked open even more doors in the production world for Atlantic Connection and Westbay Recording. Hayes has gone on to produce tracks for a plethora of up and coming vocalists. The Atlanta-bred R&B pop sensation Tetris, who has written for both 112 and Ciara, has recorded on Hayes’s tracks. The North-Carolina based singer songwriter McClain Sullivan and electro superstar Whiskey Pete have also worked with Atlantic Connection.

      Most recently, Atlantic Connection has been working with Will Gill from The Real World: Hollywood and is helping some major artists put together new demos. Atlantic Connection is a solid producer that works across all genres and consistently turns out the hottest beats, and he’s also proved himself as a businessman.

      This year, Hayes and Wilton have launched Westbay Publishing, a full in-house music placement and royalty collections agency. They made this move to ensure momentum commercially for both Atlantic Connection and the artists signed to Westbay Recordings.

      Through perseverance, hard work, and a true understanding of musicality and humanity, Nathan Hayes has seen many of his dreams come true. The Atlantic Connection sound is like no other—inspiring and soulful, and Hayes plans to continually expand his business through his musical savoir faire in the coming years.

      Random Movement began as two people, Jack Sheets (DJ Shapeshifter), and Mike Richards (Insert, later known as mjr). Mikes exposure to the drum & bass genre was solidified by Jack's wide variety of music, and Mikes ongoing study as a musician was pushed even further into the world of electronic music. Jack had been DJ'ing steadily for 7 years, becoming well-established in the mid-west United States. His skill, combined with Mikes musical as well as technical expertise in the IDM/Industrial/Jazz/Soul & Funk music genres seemed to form a perfect blend of production capabilities, as well as a deeply bonded friendship. After a few months of tweaking, the sound they were going for was beginning to gel, and their first demo cd eventually ended up in Dara's hands. Not even a week had passed before Breakbeat Science came knocking on their door, and the boys realized that they really had something going for them. Half a year later, after much turmoil in both their personal lives, "Stars in the Dark" was made, and quickly picked up by Rohan of Bassbin, along with several other tracks, and the ball really began rolling for the two of them.

      Shortly after the songs had been picked up by Rohan, the relationship between Mike and Jack had begun to strain their friendship, and it was agreed that it would be best if Jack opted to leave the project. Mike was then left to take up the reigns of the project, which, on the creative/musical side, he had held the captains seat from the beginning. The music of Random Movement had become even more finely tuned, and singles were being picked up by labels such as Innerground, Creative Source, Liquid V, Bingo, Progress, Timeless, Zeropoint, and most recently Nu Directions. Collaborations between Mike and Focus (formerly of Basic Operations) have landed record deals with Bingo and Innerground as well. Mikes natural tendency has been to play out doing a live set, incorporating his near-25 years of musical experience into both a technical and uplifting soulful performance, jamming riffs on keys as well as sequencing his own material live. He has also managed to slide comfortably into the role as DJ, playing in various places across the states. His loose-swinging, deep and soulful vibes take most club goers onto his own personal journey of introspection and enlightenment, commanding music appreciators both new and old to turn their heads. Playing everything from classics to brand new gems, the Random Movement DJ set seems to touch all in the crowd thru out the night.

      Mike is currently working on a number of releases with Innerground among many others being kept under raps for now. Random Movement Radio can be heard on Bassdrive.com every Wednesday from 5-8 CMT, and will offer a wide range of music mostly related to the Drum n' Bass genre, but don't be surprised if the program ventures out into other realms. Expect to hear new guest artists weekly as well as gear reviews, contests, recording tips, and other dialog that would interest a wider range of listeners. Random Movement collaborations will continue to hit a broader spectrum of artists such as Alix Perez, Redeyes, Atlantic Connection, Chino, and more musicians on the soulful tip. He is still sampling away from his vinyl collection, as well as writing new music daily, and hopes to have a whole host of new singles on various labels around the globe.
