So If you haven't already realised...Adelaide has finally latched onto the bandwagon of filthy and distorted basslines with more and more international dubstep acts gracing our quiet city....
The first upcoming act in a heavy lineup of big hitters is a double bill consisting of DZ & Chasing shadows.
These two are sure fire to create chaos so in order to prepare you for the storm DZ has released Part 1 of his new LP for you to sink your teeth into

Time for some D&B

I'm surprised I didn't do a Drum & Bass post sooner after my travels were spent downloading/listening to as much of it as possible! Either way I rediscovered the music that got me into DJ'ing in the first place, and its time to share!!

Here are some standout tracks that I discovered whilst on holiday..

DJ Zinc - Wile Out (DJ Marky & S.P.Y Remix) - This track destroyed the d-floor every time it was dropped @ Fabric

Spor - Halogen - Great track off their 'Conquerers and Commoners' EP (get the EP if you can)

Sigma - Stronger ( Epic Tune)

There were too many great tracks to post links to, so I've also put together a quick mix showcasing some of my favourite tracks.

this sound is UK FUNKY

I came across some interesting sounds during our last venture out to Fabric: London
Whilst the night was predominately Dubstep/Drum & DJ/Producer known as ROSKA, was destroying the D-floor with his a unique selection of tempo bending tunes..
These tunes contained elements of glitchy beeps, tech house, tribal sounds and were stitched together with heavy/basslines, breakbeats and elements of grime/garage vocals. UK Funky is far from what one can imagine when thinking of typical 'funky' music...but in a way the structure makes it very danceable, and this was proven by the packed Room 2 in Fabric.

The ability of Roska to seamlessly blend bass heavy dubstep with smooth vibing tech has meant that his very recent Radio 1 Essential Mix has been on replay on my ipod, along with a selection of fresh sounds coming out of this musical utopia......the UK.

this sound is TECHNO...

...and the setting is an old power station in Berlin...
if i've learnt one thing from my stay in Berlin..its that they know how to throw down some pounding techno, keeping wide-eyed ravers moving until they retire into the basement area. In the basement, minimal vibes are supported by a relaxing setting of beds, cushions and blankets for those who wish to enjoy the comedown, whilst masked girls perform an eerie dramatic dance on stage in time with the beats...
This was the scene of our New Years and other nights out...dark, gritty, and an experience like none other...

Here I have some mixes from various artists we encountered during our nights out...if you haven't yet been exposed to real is your chance:
