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!

Ear & Drum Session: 200 – Too Hungered Pt.1 & Pt.2

10+ years on and 200 Ear & Drum Sessions later here we are.

It took me a long time to figure out what I was going to do for the 200th installment of the Ear & Drum Sessions. Finally I hit upon taking it back to the beginning of the Ear & Drum and look at the much maligned 2000-2010 era of D&B. Talk to most headz and they’ll tell you this decade was the low point in D&B history, but like all sweeping statements this isn’t necessarily true.

As someone who has loved D&B since the beginning and never taken a break in over 25 years, I have always found tunes that have that special something to make me smile. This stands true even for D&B from the turn of the century. Artists like DKay, Klute, Marcus Intalex and Calibre made their names during this era churning out hit after hit and keeping it mighty real.

What you’re about to hear are the first two parts of a four part series looking back at the tunes I was playing during the noughties. Parts one and two look at 2000-05, with Part 1 one being the more melodic side of D&B at the time and Part 2 being the heavy hitters of the time.

Thanks to all of you who have supported me down the years and let me inflict my music taste on you. I hope you like this anniversary celebration and stick around for the next 200 mixes. Enjoy!

The Down Low: Session 047

It’s been a while since I’ve dropped a Down Low and this one is an eclectic mix of house, techno, breaks and even a trance classic in the form of Vapour Space’s – Gravitational Arch of 10. A tune which used to absolutely melt my mind on the dance floor back in the early 90s. Laurent Garnier has described it as the perfect Trance track and who am I to argue.

As with most Down Low Sessions, I’ve slotted in a few D&B artists takes on the lower BPMs and this one sees Sub Focus, Goldie, Photek and Joy Orbison all contribute 130bpm masterpieces to the vibe.

If you like pure electronic music I’m pretty confident you’ll love this, so enjoy.

Ear & Drum Session: 198 – Four Stroke

First mix of 2021 is is the final in my 2-Step / Tech Step series looking back at 90s D&B Steppers. This one focuses on Jazz Step from the mid to late 90s featuring some amazing tunes from the likes of T.Power, B.L.I.M. and of course Photek.

Jazz Step was an avant-garde take on the 2-step sound, featuring a lot of live instrument samples such as sax, percussion and double-bass. Starting with Alex Reece’s – Pulp Fiction and closing out with Roni Size’s – Brown Paper bag, the style didn’t really survive the turn of the millennium. But that didn’t stop Jazz Step from having some of the most forward thinking and innovative tunes of the 90s.
