Subtleaudio vol. 2

“2nd Rate” comes on 2 CD’s with 20 tracks, a myriad of tempos and influences and a wide range of instrumentation. This is the resurrection of breakbeats and melody in a year when many have heralded minimalism as the way forward.

If you’re in Cork this week then get down to An Cruiscin Lán for some old skool jungle. Line-up for the night is:

Welfare (Kaboogie/Dubculture)

Donnachie (Invasion)

Bilbo-Bongo (Invasion)

Jonezy (Invasion)

It’s 8 euros in and the music kicks off at 9pm until 2am.

And then the lads do it all over again on the 19th with local legend Judge Dredd; along with Jim Morton, Digiac & Undadog.

As you may know Polska’s “2nd Rate” Album is out on Subtle Audio early in May.

Polska is a producer based in Dublin who has had releases on labels like Bassbin, Inperspective, Counter Intelligence, Kin and, of course, Subtle Audio. His debut album “Skeptic” was released in 2006 on Canadian label Make:Shift and showed the range of his unique style, incorporating ambient and jazz alongside his obvious love for jungle rhythms as well as downtempo beats.

The new album is spread over 2 CD’s and 20 tracks.
CD 1 will feature the D&B style and CD2 will have a selection of downtempo works.

The first release comes from Yoru, and is a four track EP of pure deep bass music spanning Drum and Bass, Dubstep and Dub Techno.

It’s getting some great support from all over, from the likes of boxcutter, hungry ghost and Macc!

Check out the previews below, then go grab it from your favourite download store.

It’s 2010 (you probably noticed already) and has 2 new releases for you. First up is Mecca – Leviathan (SUBLTED007), a local lad from Ennis. Following that is Nebula – Prototype Chords (SUBTLED008). You can check out samples of the tunes on the Subtle Audio website (linked to above) and then buy them, each for the misery sum of €1.50. You can’t say fairer than that.

Both as an artist and a DJ, Marcus Intalex represents the forefront of soulful musical drum and bass. From the seminal ‘How You Make Me Feel’ alongside ST Files, to his more recent output alongside the likes of Calibre (as Mist:ical) and Martyn, his productions are renowned for pushing boundaries whilst retaining broad appeal. Marcus’ DJ sets follow suit and have earned him a reputation as a tastemaker, not afraid to test crowds with a fresh high quality selection from across the spectrum of drum and bass. A passion for techno runs deeply through his music and his sets, as shown by his latest solo EP and the influential DAT Music series on Soul:r. He represents Soul:ution with a popular residency at the legendary Fabric club and a highly revered radio show for Red Bull Music Academy.

Hertz-u present Goldie (History of Metalheadz set)

Andrew’s Lane, St Andrew’s Lane, Dublin 2

Friday October 30th

Admission: €15 / Doors: 11pm – late

Starting out as a graffiti artist, earning commissions from local councils in the UK, Goldie moved to America when he began fitting gold teeth (hence his artist name), and where he also appeared in the grafitti art-movie ‘Bombing’. He returned to the UK and became a convert to rave after being taken to Rage by DJ Kemistry, and eventually started doing design work for Reinforced Records, before working as A & R for the label. Goldie quickly became one of the most famous figures in drum n’ bass, releasing various landmark records on a plethora of leading labels, but most importantly establishing the legendary Metalheadz (label

and club night). For this special set at DEAF, he traces the history of Metalheadz through 15 years on the cutting edge.

Podcast – irish drum and bass

Ive been doing this since as long as I could work a tape recorder, I used to listen to the radio and I’d have a little tape recorder sitting beside it with the PLAY, REC and PAUSE buttons all pressed down and as soon a a tune came on the radio that I liked id unpause it. This time round, Skinny of the Rastachaun crew, presents a rather excellent selection of tunes of influences, inspirations and personal selections.
