Dark Sky – Ghost Notes

Posted in Live, Music with tags , , , , , , , , , on November 3, 2009 by REAL BAD

Exclusive, debut track from Dark Sky. These newcomers hail from south-London but are no strangers to the scene, having been around for a long time as DJs The Boog-a-Loo Crew. Adding a third member to their team and focusing their efforts on deeper, darker material has lead to this first track ‘Ghost Notes’, which will eventually be part of a 4-track EP to be released on freshman label Pictures. You can catch them at this month’s Trouble Vision down at Corsica Studios alongside Zinc, Geeneus, El-B, Joy Orbison and Sbtrkt to name a few!


Brackles Mix For XLR8R

Posted in Music with tags , , , , , , , , on August 3, 2009 by REAL BAD

Brackles, of Blunted Robots and Apple Pips, is fast becoming one of my favourite DJs around today. He mixes dubstep, garage and techno with more intelligence than you’ll hear in most mixes. Having said that, I’m not such a fan of the first track on this mix but after that it’s killer. Featuring unreleased tracks from Brackles, his brother Martin Kemp, Joy Orbison and Untold. I’d never heard that Jamie Lidell remix by Rustie before either… it’s massive.

Sbtrkt – Fact Mix 66

Posted in Music with tags , , , , , , on July 23, 2009 by REAL BAD

I’ll download every mix that Fact post. Simple as that. They’re all good, but some shine above others.

Sbtrkt (Subtract) has been making alot of noise recently, both through his production and his DJing. Oh, and he always wears a mask.

This mix is crammed full of original tracks by the man (?) himself, including a surprisingly brilliant remix of a Jack Penate song. As is the way these days, it’s dubby, techy and everything in between.

This has been on heavy rotation for a week and I can’t recommend it enough.
