Dub FX – Thinking Clear [CONVOY UNLTD / Membran]

Melbourne born Dub FX lived in a van for 6 years performing on street corners worldwide to build an underground fan base that rivals some of the most successful artists today.

A pioneer of live looping, Dub FX builds each track in the moment by beat boxing a heavy groove, layering soulful vocals & warm melodic bass lines.

In 2009 Dub FX’s social media skyrocketed when Bristol filmmaker Ben Dowden captured live street performances and uploaded them to YouTube. With over 600k Facebook fans & 100+ million YouTube views collectively Dub FX promotes self-empowerment and inspiration to independent artist all over the world.

10 years strong Dub FX has played almost every major festival worldwide including Glastonbury, Coachella, Sziget, Boomtown, Shambala & Exit.

Dub FX’s is now releasing his 3rd album Thinking Clear through his own label CONVOY UNLIMTED in partnership with Germany label Membran.

“I’m always evolving artistically. By working with Evan Tweedie (BASS) & Andy V (KEYS) I have been able to explore new territory in the song writing process”

Recorded in his own “treetop studios”, Thinking Clear is a blend of urban genres sown together with soulful conscious lyrics.

“The album was recorded in 4 months but I wrote a lot of the lyrics while on tour. I feel like this album captures the essence of all aspects of my journey”

Dub FX has a way of exploring social, political & spiritual subjects that leave you positive & inspired. The blend of live instrumentation over his signature beat boxing gives an edge to his unique sound.

“I wanted the album to sound live and electronic so I wrote & recorded the album with a bass player, pianist, percussionist and a 3 piece horn section.”

L Plus – Avenger (Hideout Sampler 2) [Technique Recordings]

The storm clouds are gathering. We’ve already been given a glimpse of what L Plus has to offer on his forthcoming album Hideout with the huge Timelapse and Creature Must Die. Just to make sure we’re fully prepared for the immensity of what this ambitiously epic producer has in store, though, here’s another taste.

As the intro of Avenger glides in, full of the warm pads and sparkling arpeggios of a late nineties Good Looking release, you’d be forgiven for thinking L Plus was about to show us his softer side. Nope. A sci-dialogue sample, alarm-call stabs and the sound of percussive elements swirling into place quickly dispel that illusion and set us up for something altogether more vicious.

From the drop, it becomes clear this tune is all about cracking the rave with whiplash strikes in every register. Relentless digital-clap snares are backed up by an interacting kick and bass pattern with an acidic synth line that’s constantly switching and modulating. Then the energy’s pushed even higher as L Plus fires off volleys of new percussion elements with each sixteen bar section.

This is a straight-up rave-hyper with one foot in the world of techstep D&B and the other firmly in the evolving programming of actual techno.

Over the two album samplers we’ve been blessed with some quality insight into the mind of L Plus. He’s got the musicality, he’s got the breadth of knowledge to reference many genres and styles, he’s got the dance floor-driving power. The full Hideout experience is going to be something special.

Rony Blue (produced by King Yoof) – I’m So Sorry + Potential Badboy remix [Sub Slayers]

Rony Blue returns to Sub Slayers once again with the labels Junglist mainstay King Yoof, this time though, they bring something very different to the table…

With the blessing of Carroll Thompson, Rony & Yoof revitalise the 80’s lovers rock classic I’m So Sorry. Staying true to the original vibe and composition Rony’s sultry vocals glide effortlessly over Yoof’s classic riddim.

I’m So Sorry see’s Rony pull out all the stops showcasing just how much of a talented hidden gem she is, graceful yet powerful all the way. King Yoof’s productions are stepping up no end, having recent produced the Grime hit ‘Who Can Draw’ for D Power, Frisko & Demolition Man, Yoof’s game is becoming second to none and this re-working of a classic adds more fuel to the King’s fire.

For a remix there really only was one man for the job: Potential Badboy. After his genre shaking album last year, Potential just keeps on pushing forward and his remix of I’m So Sorry further fuels the fire trail he leaves behind.
