B-Real ft. Damian "Jr. Gong" Marley "Fire (Noah D Remix)"

No Comments »

Lil' something special for my dubsteppin' ganja lighters. Noah D should be a name you already know (and if not, cop that fire album of his, Perspective). I got the honor of featuring him on the first RTDLTD release, but at the time, his DnB was on one end and his dubstep was skyrocketing. He punches up this B-Real/Jr. Gong cut perfectly. Effortlessly. Damian's part in particular is my ish. Light whatever you're chiefing and blast this one. For free.

Bye-Polar "One In A Million (ACCRO Remix)"

No Comments »


Not sure when the Bye-Polar project is dropping. Not sure when this "Remixes" project is coming out either. No this doesn't have any Aaliyah samples in it, unless something got twisted and filtered that I don't know about. Just some heavy wake-up vibes. You're welcome.

Yeah, you know, I don't know shit. I've only been championing this Hip-Hop/dubstep/Bass Music hybrid shit for how long? Word is The Overthrow sent over this Hudson Mohawke jawn to J NiCS and he was so into it, he flipped this the same day. Brutal. But you already know that though.

The end of Season 4 also marks the 100th episode of the Juan Epstein podcast. Congrats to Ciph and Rosenberg for reaching that milestone. Season 5 is set to start in a few weeks, with promises of a Juan Epstein app, a regular schedule and tighter content, I guess? I just want the real shit on a regular basis, nahmean? This week's guest? Biz Markie! Nuff said, really.

I wanna send a shout to DJ Wonder - he's not only just showed DJ Nappy love numerous times on Shade45, but he fucks with the EDM/Bass Music hybrid styles from all others as well. Today, Wonder dropped an EXCLUSIVE refix that Nappy put together with a beat from ƱZ, who's dropping a project with Mad Decent's The Jeffrees on the the 21st of June - peep the minimix for that project HERE. While you wait for that, fucks with Wonder's latest mix.

DOV ft. Bekay "Ghost Rhymer"

No Comments »


Interesting cut right here. Not too often do you get tracks about high schools that make the news. Check this out: "16 year old rapper and James Madison High School student DOV unleashes "Ghost Rhymer," a song which documents the sexual scandals and other tales of debauchery that have ensued at the Brooklyn school that has earned the moniker "Horndog High." Using the instrumental from the Skillz's tell all single "Ghost Writer" (2000, Rawkus Records), "Ghost Rhymer" also features the rapper's mentor Bekay, who discovered the young emcee in his Midwood neighborhood and has since taken him under his wing as the flagship artist on his Horror Flick Entertainment imprint. Although Horndog High has made national headlines for its sex scandals, DOV doesn't hesitate to divulge the broad range of lawlessness that occurs on the regular by the school's faculty - from alleged racism, homophobia, drug-use and more…keep f*ckin' around, and he'll put this back out with your names in it." Not mad at this at ALL.

V Recordings Podcast 008

No Comments »

I didn't know V Recordings had a podcast, but then I saw that this episode is just a recording (no pun intended) from Bryan Gee's Ministry of Sound Radio show, which is always great. If you're a fan of the V/Full Cycle/Philly Blunt sound that Bryan has championed over the last few decades, this is what you need. For you sample spotters, run about 67 minutes into the recording, you'll find Bryan drop an unreleased dubplate of Roni Size's ("Wild Love") back to back with a newer Serum tune ("Love Movement"), both sampling Minnie Ripperton (yes, the same jawn that A Tribe Called Quest used for "Lyrics To Go"). Beautiful.

DJ Jazzy Jeff & Mick Boogie - Summertime Vol. 3

Read more » | No Comments »

Mick Boogie and Jazzy Jeff keep up the streak. I love these mixtapes; my shit with DJs is them being able to blend many different styles, especially within a similar theme, and make it rock. Over 50+ tracks, these guys blend Busta Rhymes, Chaka Khan, Maroon 5, A Taste of Honey, Stevie Wonder and Jay-Z - among more - and the shit just came out dope. As expected. Don't be an idiot, this is your soundtrack for 2012 Summer.

[preview] Imagery "The Heat (Sevin Remix)"

No Comments »

When I think of perfect Summer Drum & Bass, tunes like this are what immediately come to mind. I must have been after this tune for over a year - I remember Bailey dropping this a WHILE ago on his 1Xtra show, with no word on release. Imagery and Sevin have been accumulating tunes in that span, and it looks like Fizzy Beats will be dropping this on their The Juices Vol. 2 EP, which is due out this July. Take a pair of minutes and soak this one in.

Tanya Morgan ft. Jermiside & Spec Boogie "Borrow That (Boogie's Revenge Mix)"

No Comments »

For those of you who slept on You & What Army last November, the good folks at HiPNOTT picked up the rights to drop a physical CD version of the latest Tanya Morgan project, and word from 2DBz is that Von Pea produced three remixes that will serve as bonus cuts on the disc. This is one, and features Spec Boogie hopping on one of my favorite cuts from that project. Pea brings the understated slap on this one, trust.

Not sure what the occasion was, but the RUN DMT crew threw this freebie from their forthcoming album, Union of Opposites, to the masses the other day. Nasty piece of no nonsense dubstep into some more noisier zones. Hit the jump for the sampler (which includes a Bassnectar remix of this very tune)... wake up!

DOA Mix: GENR8

No Comments »

Funny how things go. I remember trying to get DOA to put out some more releases on their imprint. I ultimately failed (and those dealings made me want to start RTDLTD, which isn't done), but one of the first guys I checked and got tunes from was GENR8. He's an American producer who flips some SICK Drum & Bass, but I had slept on the fact that he had some dubstep out there! He dropped an EP, Now Is The Future, on his Genr8ion imprint recently, and I got a chance to pick his brain about his current exploits. He also came correct with a dynamic mix to kick your weekend off properly.

Atlantic Connection "She's Not From Venus"

No Comments »


Can't front - I was surprised to see Complex got the exclusive preview of this one. Atlantic Connection is one of the homies I want to see win, and his Love Architect album (which drops on the 19th of June) is going to turn some heads. He's normally known for Drum & Bass, but with this track (and a number of bits from the LP), he shows off his strengths outside of the DnB tempo. Features on it include Tali and Shannon Swain and a remix from Kastle. Get your summer on to this one.

My kind of riddim right now. I know Pugs has been doing the damn thing overseas with The Electric; he's just come off a six(!) month tour of Europe, Asia and the UK and is back with a big bottom bass banger produced by Schlachthofbronx, which is the first leak from Euro P, No more pages in the passport, which is slated to drop July 6th. I wonder if he tackled any of those beats I sent him a few moons ago. Things that make you go hmmmmmmm. Hearing this? I know he is ample to help bridge that bass music/Hip-Hop gap.

Soul Khan "Soulstice 4"

No Comments »

"You're not moving me unless you put a harpoon in me" is just one of the awesome images Khan pens for the fourth installemnt of this "Soulstice" series. Not big beats here, just a somber piano build that allows Soul to execute what he does best: opening his mind onto a track, engaging a listener in his honesty, with many splashes of humor. Hell, he drops a Jesse Spano reference that I instantly rewound. If you call yourself an MC but can't do THIS, you ain't really doing it.

DJ Sega - The Throne Is Watching Me EP

No Comments »


I've literally been rocking to this project all day. DJ Sega is a cat who reps that party music scene, the shit you hear the young Philly and Baltimore bols rocking to, including his "Angry Birds" remix, which has already hit 400K streams on the YouTube. He has a different take on shit - definitely not afraid to flip a Whispers track with a sample from a Randy Savage promo. Into a club anthem. Dude's catalog is nuts, and that must be why Diplo himself tapped him as a protege a few years back. He's started to upload his tapes to ClubTapes, but this one right here? My personal favorite. Fucks with this, and keep it locked to dude's work. Trust me. Check his "Exodus 23:1" remix if you don't believe me!
