Pure Rollage mix

001_Pure_Rollage_2012_small

OK. Here’s a mix of fresh, deep dub 130. Basically my tribute to Beneath. This is pure rollage. Obviously the Beneath stuff is the best dub in the world right now but there’s lots of good bits in this mix. I particularly like the blend of City Cycle and Send, and the blend of Waterfalls and the Vibe is so Right. This goes off live. The Ramadanman refix is very special, David played this out quite a bit. No-one’s got that.

Check it, this is a good’un.

KLEER: New single out now. Hype Hype

Yeah. New single out now which I’m really excited about. It’s KLEER backed with my remix of J Beatz’ Subwoofer. So two slices heavy 130 uk funky – one a hard acid work out, one a banging grime remix. One of the best records I’ve ever made.

Check out the Soundcloud here:

Blackdown played it a few months ago as usual. Then I think Sinden was the first to play the pre-release on his Kiss show. Plus it’s had some daytime airplay from Rinse, and may be best of all, it’s had some play from the legendary Marcus Nasty. He played both sides and was really working it in the mix with a great MC over the top. Hearing that made my whole music career worthwhile.

It’s here:

Kleer on RInse FM

The DJ feedback has been great, here’s some of the quotes people sent me for the promo to the shops:

Sully:

Subwoofer remix will do damage, drums for miles. and Kleer is just apocalyptic, one for the warehouse I reckon.

Philip Sherbourne

this is exactly the kind of thing I’m looking for. Hard/deep funky that’s not too fast and kinda tripped-out. I  played “Kleer,” and it sounded fantastic, especially on the Horst soundsystem. Thanks again! I feel honored to have been able to play that….

Artek

these are great man! both remix and original tune. so good for the dance floor and groovy. can’t decide which one I’m enjoying more

Slakk:

Subwoofer remix is fucked mate

Sinden  

I really like Kleer man!!!! I’m gonna be dropping it on the radio show this week. I bet this one drops hard in the dance too. Can’t wait to test it!!!

Kalbata

kleer is wicked. will def play!

Dub Boy

Wicked tracks mate! My fave is the J Beats remix which is ruff! A really good drums workout…. RIDDIM

John Eden

J Beatz is one of the handful of grime producers I still bother checking – the GA mix of his “Subwoofer” ups the ante with more frenetic voodoo percussion and a touch of sunshine to complement the dread bass. Ruff and smooth in all the right places – one for the heads, as we used to say.

Joe Muggs was kind enough to give it a great review in the May edition of the Wire, which is fantastic, I love the Wire:

The minimal remix got featured as a free download on Mixmag‘s website alongside some really nice words. I never thought I’d get a mention on Mixmag!:

http://www.mixmag.net/music/mp3-blog/free-mp3-grievous-angel

“Soundsystem house.” That’s good!

Colin at K Mag gave it a really good review in his dubstep column.

Liminal Sounds did a really extensive interview:

Immersed Audio did a good  deep interview with me, it’s here: http://www.immersedaudio.com/2012/04/ia-mix-series-030-interview-grievous.html

There’s also a really heavy remix of loads of my dubs done just like how I play live here:

Among the shops, Boomkat is carrying the twelve and the digital with some nice words: “Video Crash’ style Chicago toms and stabs with proper UK swagger, spiking the whole lot with spaced-out neon synths to sound like one of Bok Bok’s more delirious productions”. Thank you very much! 🙂

 

Rubadub is carrying it.

Juno is carrying it.

 

So it’s been a really busy time. I hope lots of people like Kleer – I think people are ready for some acid sounds now…

Mix for Blackdown Soundboy Volume One: Redux

blackdown soundboy mix volume 1
Martin Blackdown Clark was kind enough to let me remix Margins Music, his first album with Dusk, and to promo the release I did two mixes for his blog. This is the first one, re-mastered, tidied up a bit, and now available straight off this site rather than via a fileshare service. It’s a selection of hiphop, r’n’b, wigged out future garage, grime and dubstep, all in dub or refixed, and quite a bit louder and punchier than first time round.

Big up Martin and thanks to Shaun Bloodworth for letting me use this amazing photo of the light at FWD / Plastic People for both this mix and for the label of my Soundclash1 release on Keysound.

Free downloads going up on Bandcamp

I’ve got a page on Bandcamp for free downloads.

I’ve got a load of tunes now, too many for any future album. I’m going to give away some of the better ones.

There might be some paid-for ones in the future. I also want to start hosting dubz in there too when I work it out.

I’m at http://grievousangel.bandcamp.com

I’ve got two tracks up so far. Darkness is that folk / garage tune that Mary Anne played and which was up on my site for a while. It’s good, I’d do a better mixdown now though. There’s a load more folk tunes I want to do. There’s an Eliza Carthy sample that’s been going through my head for months, for example.

Erzulie is this wonky thing that’s the companion piece to Harpy (on the flip of Soundclash).

There’ll probably be some funky up there soon.
