Thread Contributor: SpectrazBandcamp: Drum 'N' Bass & other music recommendations

#1
It's been a while since I posted, but since I bought the Subvert Central compilations at Bandcamp yesterday, I wanted to reconnect with you guys and the music.

I haven't been following the music like I used to do back before the 2000s, yet when I saw that some of the better labels started to selling their catalogs at Bandcamp, I wanted to start supporting the artists again.

I am looking for recommendations - and a lot of them.

My current plan is to buy the Inperspective records back catalog, as well as Subtle Audio's, however, I want to line up mor in my wishlist at Bandcamp. Below I'll post the names of producers that I am going to support more going forward, and I would appreciate it if you could add names that I have left out that have been releasing good music as of late.

ASC
Fracture
Neptune
Chris Inp
Equinox
Seba
Paradox
Nucleus
Macc
Fanu
Alpha Omega
Blue
Pieter K
Senses
Tim Reaper
Sileni
DJ Trax
Dissident
Polska
Martsman
Fushara
Earl Grey
Brad Impact
dgoHn
Infest
Quasi
Düffah
Breakage
Andy Skopes

Which other producers should I look into? Which other labels are building a good catalog and are featured at Bandcamp?

As a side note, I bought the Wound Up Beat Tape a couple of days ago, and I am looking for solid releases like that, as well as Drum 'N' Bass related music.

Hey Spectraz,

good to see ya posting here again and glad to hear yer planning to nab from Stubble Audio Smile

Here's a recommendation from me - https://dissymmetrical.bandcamp.com/

It's Asymmetric / Limit's label ... they've just started to do vinyl too.

But if it's digital only yer after I'd recommend tracks like 'Transzendental' on DSSM02 - https://dissymmetrical.bandcamp.com/albu...etrical-02

and 'So Good' on DSSM04 - https://dissymmetrical.bandcamp.com/albu...etrical-04

... the rest is good too Wink

Thanks Code! Your tip is also interesting, and I did not know about the label nor the producer.

Is there any alternative way to buy the entire Subtle Audio Digital discography? I saw how little Statto got out of the £15 which was a revelation for me how it worked.

I've never heard about Soul Delay before, has he produced a modern musical Drum 'N' Bass album that can stand the test of time in terms of music, and concept?

I need to listen to the relases from Brightest Dark Place and Microfunk before I come to a conclusion whether I like their output or not. As for Omni Music, I never heard of them before until a few weeks ago I believe, their output seemed immense and need to be examined further.

And Om Unit, I have never heard of him, although I got the impression he's come through only recently yet he has made music for many years, is that so? He also seems to be on the more 'musical' side of things.

Hey Spectraz,

The SA Bandcamp is a good place to support (for our digital releases).
80% of the money you pay goes to the label (the rest on Bandcamp / Paypal fees).
Not bad at all.

We have an special offer of 50% off if you buy the entire catalog, but you might have some stuff already, so feel free to pick n choose Wink

I contacted Reinforced Records and asked them if they are going to start uploading their back catalog digitally to Bandcamp. It got me thinking about other labels such as Bassbin Recordings and Partisan Recordings (do you remember Partisan ?). Is Rohan still around these parts? And shouldn't Bassbin create a page at Bandcamp?

I was a bit sad to dicover that all releases from Paradox Music, Esoteric Music, Arctic Music, and Outsider Music aren't available as digital downloads at Bandcamp. I don't think that the releases are available digitally in any other store.

^these B-Key tunes from his bandcamp are top notch. Thanks for the tip, DIB.
B-Key's latest EP on Sci Wax is also pure gold (Martian Surface and two more mellow tunes Forever and Red Sky. Shame that Sci Wax doesn't release main label releases digitally, as usually vinyl copies are sold within hours. Digital release of Jah Warrior EP would be an instant purchase.

Thank you for the links DIB. I knew about the Paradox related ones, and I should have written all in italics since Dev hasn't made all releases available as digital downloads. I've contacted him about it, yet I think it might be contract related or he has a love for records as artifacts, and pieces of art.

The Bkey tunes sounded decent and I have added RuptireLDN in my wishlist.

What's the label email for Warm Communications? The label should also be featured at Bandcamp. Does anybody with a FB account want to help out and contacting Heath?

warmcomms@amaonline.com , I think that's their e-mail addy.

Good call, Warm Communications is still very active, and their releases are still top notch Smile

another label that could be of interest for you Spectraz is the rebooted Fresh 86

Im pretty sure warm comms are on bandcamp..
But might be hard to search. I think theres a label search function. Its annoying me that Low Point ambient label on bandcamp (also very fond of) had to be procreated under that as an artist name.

On bandcamp, a record i got via unearthed distro as bc were sold out...im a good fan of the Stand Firm HiFi label. Even if i only have the first records memorised i played "hold jah hand" 12 inch vinyl 50 plus times in the first week.

I used to rinse and repeat Modern Urban Jazz bandcamp page in the early days of the label. Tony Justice's and he is also a fan of the Paranoid Society collective.

The Soul Delay lp on BC is one of the most timeless straight up dnb based albums i have heard for a long time. Its very jungly, but future fancying enough.

Im also a fan of the producers Profane (Digital Wreka) ICR (Misspent Music) and Aroma Nice Dub-One and Nebula
 
Pretty sure these guys are on bandcamp too.

I've emailed Warm Communications, James C about the Covert Operations catalog, and Red Eye Records for their Fresh 86 label. It would be neat if Equinox had an artist page at Bandcamp as well.

I also tried to find contact information for Jonny L, but I couldn't find one.

Tom at Red Eye / Fresh 86 responded that he doesn't even have copies of records from the back catalog.

Those two tracks are from Kaos who posts here occasionally and has appeared on several releases from the mighty omni music Smile

https://speakmusic.bandcamp.com/ - SpeaK used to post on here and DAO as well, however he seems to have paused his producer career currently

DJ Monita has revived Skeleton recordings 20 or so years after it's first incarnation and has since released some heavy tunes by peeps who are not unknown to this forum like Tim Reaper or ricky Force
