The Down Low: Session 048

When D&B producers put their mind to slower tempos they often leave other producers who eat, sleep and breath those tempos in the dust. This time we give the Down Low treatment to 140bpm. While there are some non-D&B producers sprinkled throughout, Sunchase, Amit, Bop, Shy FX, Dub Phizix, Resound, Calibre, Nelver, Seathasky and Om Unit all have their roots firmly planted in the 170bmp world of D&B.

Covering off Ambient, House, Techno, Breaks, Bass, Dance Hall and Electronica this set is the definition of eclectic. Special shout to Shy FX for his tune Carnival Culture which Ive been trying to slide into a set for the longest time. Looks like I finally got there.

Ear & Drum Session: 207 – Soul Full

D&B has often been described as fast soul music and in this mix I’ll be leaning into that vibe. Kicking off with a cheeky bootleg of Soul’s of Mischief classic 93 Till Infinity and a remaster of Ink & J dub’s massive Feel Da Heat, the mix then settles into a soulful mix of new more laid back Liquid sounds.

You might notice I draw heavily from LSB & DRS’ new LP of remixed work from The Blue Hour – well worth checking out if you like their sound. And big shouts to Calibre for reworking Lady Blackbird ‘s brilliant and super soulful Collage. If you don’t know the 70s original I strongly suggest you seek it out.

Ear & Drum Session: 206 – Cruising Altitude

Some music is just made for traveling. I jammed this mix together a couple of hours before I jumped plane, knowing that I’d need some fresh tunes to get me through. It did the trick, as I sat looking out the window watching the clouds slide by it struck me that D&B really is the perfect travel music.

Shouts to the older headz contributing to this mix like Makoto, Nu:Tone, Sonic and Seba, 20+ years in the game and still pumping out quality tunes. And big ups to the new school coming through with their own take on the sound such as Anthony Kasper, Meanone, Satl and Koherent.

EAR & DRUM SESSION: 205 – Knee Deep

The deeper side of D&B seems to have slowed down a little in the last year or so, but what it has lacked in quantity it has made up in quality.

Familiar names to the genre such as Calibre, Bungle and dBridge are still consistently rolling out quality stripped back tracks that perfectly loop. Best of all a healthy amount of new comers like VROMM, MKD, Ordure and Heron Flow have kept the vibe alive and run with it into deeper territories.

Respect to all the producers old and new keeping the sound fresh and fabulously deep.

EAR & DRUM SESSION: 204 – Flow Over Me

Liquid is on fire at the moment. I know that is an oxymoron, but it is the truth. Lenzman, HLZ, Calibre, Mitekiss and their contemporaries are killing it, all to the sound of DRS on vocals.

The combination of smooth deep bass lines, tight beats and great vocal hooks make the genre one of the best listening experiences around at the moment. Special shouts out to Silent Dust on the Erykah Badu On & On remix and Focus Recordings mysterious Unknown Artist for the Sade – Sweetest Taboo bootleg. Keep them coming.

EAR & DRUM SESSION: 203 – Call the Ambience 16: Terminal

This mix is dedicated to Dan ‘Mo’ Money’ Moore who tragically lost his battle against brain cancer earlier this year after a brave and tenacious 10 year battle.

I first started the Call the Ambience series when Mo’ first went into hospital as a way of giving him something calming yet D&B related to listen to while bed bound. Mo’ was a music lover, and one of my biggest supporters who stuck by me even when others turned against me on my return from the UK. His friendship and loyalty meant the world to me and defined what a great person he really was.

Mo’, you were one of the good ones. Even more so, you were one of the best friends a man could have. Thanks for all the good time and Rest In Peace.

Ear & Drum Session: 202 – Squelch

Another liquid mix in a rolling style with some absolute belters thrown in. Starting off with Need for Mirrors – Without U, others such as Terror & Espa – Loaded Gun (BCee Remix) and Severity & Whiney – Broken Hearted (Whiney Remix) will have you singing along.

DOA Infinitely Slow Mix 2021

8DJs, 80+ tunes and nearly 4hrs of tunes.

This is the slower 140BPM version of the DOA Infinite series that sees a bunch of talented DJs taking turns in going back-to-back across the internet and the globe.

To say this is a bunch of eclectic tunes is doing this mix a major disservice, and if you’re looking for something that is going to introduce to some new music and artists then this is exactly where you want to start!

Ear & Drum Session: 201 – Rollin’ Dirty

We’re back to some contemporary beats after the 200th Anniversary sets with a mix of rollers from 2020-21. These tracks are almost a genre on their own with their tuff but rolling beats and dirty basslines. They feel a bit more accessible and floor friendly that the usual hardcore D&B tracks and give a bit of a nod to the older Jump Up sound of the early 2000s.

Artists like Buunshin, Mikal and Was a Be are definitely leading the pack along with players like Workforce and Breakage in this sound. This set features work from Mikal’s amazing Metalworks LP which was packed full of tuff rollers and definitely a highlight for Metalheadz late last year.

As hard as some of these tracks are, it is almost impossible not to nod your head and have a smile while you’re at it.

Ear & Drum Session: 200 – Too Hungered Pt.3 & Pt.4

Continuing on from the first part of my 200th Anniversary mix, this is look at D&B from the years of 2005-10. While not D&B’s finest era, there were some amazing tracks that did come out during this time and some stand out artists who kept the vibe alive.

As mentioned last time Marcus Inatlex and Calibre came into their own during the 2000s. But joining them in the later part of the decade were dons like dBridge, Rockwell, Sunchase and Naibu who gave us anthems that are still worth a rinse today.

I hope you enjoy the final part to this anniversary celebration and that I might have been able to shine a light on some gems from the turn of the century. Thanks for all the support down the years and as always, enjoy!
