The Down Low: Session 043

Heading heavily into Dub Techno territory, this mix of laid back, slower beats has some cool surprises thrown in such as the Peverelist Remix of the Jonny L classic Piper and Sunscreem’s – Love You More.

Things do get slightly hectic with Vital Techniques remix of Decline’s breaks banger I Don’t Smoke & Hype M8 by MindOfADragon. Also big shouts to Goldie & James Davidson for their Subjective side project and their amazing and thoughtful new LP – Act One – Music for Inanimate Objects

Back with another session of greatness from the lower BPMs of house, techno and breaks. This one is an eclectic mix of deeper tracks until the end when things pick up into a more floor orientated affair.

The Down Low: Session 038

I don’t exactly know what category these tunes fall into other than amazing. They sound a little like house, but there are broken beats in there, and all I do know is that this is my favourite Down Low Session in quite some time.

Tunes to keep an ear out for are Sepalcure’s amazing Warning, which I’m putting up as the best way to start a set I’ve heard all year. Then there’s Stanton Warriors & Tony Quattro – Get Low (Infrakt Remix) which is pure breakbeat funk and has a vocal hook that gets stuck in your head for day. You have been warned. Last, but by no means least, is Calibre’s – Grow which is my favourite house track of the year by miles and also the name of Calibre’s new LP. If you haven’t heard it, get on it.

If you are anything like me, you’ll have this on rotation for quite some time so enjoy. 🙂

The Down Low: Session 037

I’m still convinced that when D&B producers step away from 172bpm music they end up making better house, techno and bass music than most the producers dedicated to those genres. There is something about taking those technical skills honed at higher BPMs and turning them to slower electronic music that just works. As proof check this mix out.

Fanu, Bop, Nuage, Om Unit & Commix are all originally D&B producers who are now experimenting with lower BPMs and making some amazing music. There are of course some old favourites in here too such as Groove Armada, Tipper and James ‘where you get that voice?’ Blake.

This one starts out all hard and gnarly, but winds down and chills out the further it goes along. Enjoy what lays Down Low.

Pete Satürn – Loophole #1 (Titan)
Commix – Behold

Om Unit – Seraphim

It has been an absolute age since I’ve posted a free track, but Seraphim from Om Unit is worthy of the exception. Deep, beautifully crafted and high quality (in sound and file format) this track is simply a thing of wonder well worth sharing with the world.

Enjoy.

The Down Low: Session 32

It’s been the longest time since I’ve flexed my bass music chops, so as comeback I’ve put together something a little special. These are some of my all time bass, hip-hop and house favourites with a little Beebs thrown in for good measure.

I know, I know, if you had told me I would like a Justin Bieber tune I would have punched you in the face. But hey, 2016 has been a weird a year and if anyone can make Beebs sound it’s Diplo.

I can with certainty say this will be my last Down Low Session for the year, so enjoy it and I hope you keep listing in 2017.

The Down Low: Sessions 28, 29 & 30

A fresh batch of Down Low Sessions for you focusing on the best of bass, house, techno and other beats related type tunes.

Session 28 is a house and techno expedition with a little bit of jungle towards the end. The cover picture sums up the vibe on this mix, full of 6am sunrise types tunes, this is the kind of mix perfect for getting home and seeing in the break of dawn.

If you prefer it deep, dark and moody then Session 29 will take you there. The first three tunes of this mix set the scene perfectly with drifting vocals and dark, low basslines. If you like the Cosmic Bridge labels 140bpm jungle sound then this will hit the spot. Other notables in here are Tipper and Atlantic Connection, who can never do wrong in my book.

Need some jeep beats to bump along to? Session 30 is a more upbeat take on the bass and house sound which will get you nodding and singing along in places. Special mention for Martin Solveig & GTA’s – Intoxicated which is a little more commercial than I’d normally go, but has become a guilty pleasure for me. It is just so damn funky and one of the best party tunes of the years for me.

A special shout out to Phuture Freq Radio, where these mixes were originally being played and hosted. After more than a decade of providing exceptional beats across the internet the site has finally closed it doors. I’ve been involved with Guy Andrew’s station since 2002 and I wish him all the best on his burgeoning production career and hope he gets a similar site up and running again soon so we can continue to bring the music to the masses. To Guy and PFRadio, Respect.

What’s that you say? It’s the weekend and you haven’t got anything to listen too.

Well here you go – three new Down Low Session chock full of new tunes and diverse styles to keep you going for at leat the next three hours.

Session 25 is a cracking chill-out house set for of good vibes and lush lyrics. I defy anyone not to sing along to Blood Groove & Kikis – Free Like A Bird. This set is just like that holiday in Ibiza where you can’t remember how you lost your knickers on the dance floor.

Session 26 rolls up all ghetto with dubstep, hip-hop and trap kicking out the jams. You definitely want to keep an ear out for Atlantic Connection – Go feat. Tunde Olaniran which is my track of the year so far. Impossibly impressive beats, bass and vocals.

Session 27 is one for the Techno and Tech House lovers and has a heavy deep and dark and Chicago influence to it. Highlights for me is the oh-so-tech inspired Neighbours by Madben & Yann, Sixteenth Pulse – Frames and Rainforest’s chill out classic Weather Swing.

Low Profile – The Down Low: Sessions 019 – 022

All right Bass music lovers, it’s Down Low Sessions catch up time again taking us from July through to October of the monthly podcast. Get the latest November edition at pfradio.com. It’s the usual smattering of house, techno, chilled dubstep, trap, hip-hop and anything else that falls under the Bass genre that turned me on at the time.

As a quick overview number 19 is a smooth blend of house and 2-step with some crackers in there from ‘it’ band London Grammar and big beat heroes Basement Jaxx. Number 20 heads into deeper territory and is much more broken beats on a chilled out and ambient tip. Session 21 is chock full of bangers ranging from acid inspired rave, hard techno, trap and even a bit of dirty white boy hip-hop courtesy of Three Loco. And, last but not least, Session 22 is a trap, duke, footwork rinse out with the odd surprise thrown in there for good measure.

The variety is vast, the quality is excellent so dig deep and enjoy. 🙂
