  Sarah Jane Gray (artist, one half of Broken Library band)
Posted by: Muttley - 14th November 2017, 15:28 - Replies (1)

I encountered Sarah Jane Grey and her bandmate Sam Pope, playing covers and original material as the band Broken Library, in Witney in late October 2017. The happy couple suffered joint brain haemorraghes at different points in life, and Headway charity helped them to release this.

I've just visited Sarah's artist website for the first time, piqued by the CD paintings in the inner sleeve of their "Jigsaw" album, a collection of song-writing covers and original works. The album is available to buy on there, and the busking style gig I attended filled me with hope and joy.

Both very friendly folk, and Sarah's a dab had with paints - check out her watercolour paintings here: ...I find them imbued with child-like clarity and optimism, but with a earnest maturity beyond their years that Is capturing of all the finer aspects of texture, tone, and ordinance. Having studied visual art at the Open Uni the material would fit right in at the Tate, it's that interesting.

Secret d*bstep.. more like rotting on my doorstep @#!

instant stream of consciousness thought for a thread title, ya dig?  lol. 


We all know NOBODY listens to dubstep anymore. Scratch SadwavePerhaps for good reason too. I mean.. imo, trap has usurped most of dubstep's production sounds, while incredibly simplifying production techniques 10 fold, AND has jointly provided an even MORE extreme bass perversion for those that need it. Dubstep seems rather pedestrian by today's standards in bass music productions, imo. In 2017,  i view dubstep as a mere footnote to what was to come.  Still, you can't deny, whether good or bad, bass musics, hip-hop, trap, later eras of dnb (as we know), and a myriad of current commercial pop electronic tunes heard anywhere today, would NOT be here without dubstep.  It happened.  People know what dubstep is..  the general public who know nothing of dance music lingo, know the term "dubstep".   The sound was completely integrated, and passively received, perhaps killing any "edge" the music may have had, of course.  In all honesty, a dark, instrumental trap mix is more interesting to listen to, more "head nodding" , subversive, and extreme in comparison.  

If anything, I think that any notable reference to dubstep today might merely reinforce the standard UK garage connection, which I am a fan of, from back in the day. There are still blips of decent tunes posted about.  It has been roughly 15 years + of reference points you can sift through now. I stopped listening in... I can't even remember. Maybe 2006?  I was even still djing back then. Perhaps some of the Skull Disco releases were some of my final dubstep vinyl purchases back then?  Hotflush was moving on, as were other labels and producers.   "brostep" killed it for me.. perhaps the genre in general.  Things moved on and changed, as we all know. Grime stepped up again in recent years, to various degrees.  I STILL listen to old Hotflush Recordings podcast and mixes.  Earlier Hotflush Recs is always an instant reference point for me, it is like "comfort food" for my sonic tastes. heh. Hotflush was always quality back then. TOASTY for life really. Smile

Kahn & Neek, Bandulu Recs, doing it for recent stuff.   I might check out blips here and there. Hence this thread. 

Random dubstep picks, from 15+ years of music now, perhaps some grime'ting as well.   Including stuff I've never heard myself, nor checked out before the music fell void to my needs.   Feel free to share your own discoveries and gems. 

Cheers.  Xyxthumbs

  Blue Lab Beats
Posted by: B - 12th November 2017, 20:41 - Replies (1)

I've been following these two young fellas, Blue Lab Beats, for a bit now and think they're great. I love their Blue Skies EP and went to see them live in the Eastern Curve Garden in Dalston at a night called woodburner, the garden was jumping. They've just released a couple of debut singles and I hate to say I'm disappointed, however, I still maintain they are ones to watch. I had a chat with them and they are yet to discover jungle. They are musical sponges so hopefully they will take it more on a 4 Hero tip, which is what they reminded me of when I first heard them.  Anyway, make up your own mind:

  Stillhead - New Album 'Copenhagen'
Posted by: widzhit - 8th November 2017, 08:54 - Replies (1)

Quote:It has been 2 years since my debut album as Stillhead and I'm planning to release a second album titled "Copenhagen". A humble tribute to the Danish capital, and something of a catalogue of my time there, I'd like to present ten brand new Stillhead tracks, alongside remixes from some amazing producers. I'm planning a double CD release since I missed out on a CD version of my debut "Iceberg". I'm also planning a limited run of small artwork prints and if I get enough funding maybe a vinyl EP.

Just 4 days left to help with the funding of this release -
