Flying solo once again with the new format it’s myself Killian selecting from a mixed bag this week. Deep vibes throughout and even taking a small HipHop excursion with Snakehips, Gummy Soul & Fresh as I’ve recently discovered Bandcamp is an absolute goldmine for concept albums from indie producers.
There some deep dub in there, most notably a free track from Djinn, thats a wicked remix of a Numan track so check for that. Some roots vibes in there too from Egoless and Matta checks in with a remix of French producers Niveau Zero & Tambour Battant. Dark and moody vibes from Kode 9 vs Badwai and to fend of the dark theres glorious tracks from our best kept secret, Londy as well as rising talen Es.Tereo. New D&B vibes from Breaks Symmetry label make this show as varied as it’s ever been. Get keen and listen in.

Robot Bodypop 01.09.12

artwork by Max Dean

This weeks Robot Bodypop show serves up more freebies than ever. Killian selects cuts from fresh producers Panda and Geode, a double header from Quantum Soul and some jungle vibes from Hi Fidel Cartel. They are stacked in between tracks that move through the vibes with some new beats and some oldies and this is topped off with this weeks Survivor.

1nejack moves in a different direction with some exclusive tracks most notably from Wolf Cub and Silent Dust. Theres some bassweight in there from RDubz, Eggchan and Major Lazor and a couple of grimy numbers from both selectors from Biome and Priceless. The latter featuring Wiley on mic duties.

No guestmix on this weekss selection as we have no space amongst all the beats we’re spinning but expect the Transmit selections to resume soon. Listen, share and enjoy.

Transmit Sessions Vol 4 | N. Killah and NRealm Recs

ON THIS WEEK’S SHOW:

With the Transmit Sessions we’re trying to get people to represent their individual sounds and vibes be it through music they make or put out there for others through imprints and releases. Russia’s N.Killah keeps it all in house. Both D.J. and producer he also founded and runs the mighty N.Realm Recs label. The label is dedicated to, in his own words, ‘true dubstep’.

Keeping to the deep vibes but not scared to experiment, the label has already stacked up an impressive release roster with plenty more to come throughout 2012. The most recent release is N.Killahs impressive ‘The End’ E.P

On top of all this, N.Killah also manages to find time to put out the 4VIVBES podcast which is packed full of plenty of bass music featuring some of the labels other artists. The most recent show sees Forensics in the mix with a serious selection of tracks from all corners.

4VIBES Podcast>

N.Killah kindly took a minute to talk to us:

1. how did N:realm recordings come to be? have you always wanted to run your own label?

N;realm has been created absolutely spontaneously. First I released two of my own tracks. Then my friends have supported me and gave their tracks for free.

2. You appear to be very proud of what you’re building with N.Realm Recs. Tell me about the dubstep scene in Russia

The stage exists. There is a lot of awsome artists, various podcasts, radio shows…
But much less fans of true dubstep. 80 percent of dubstep people likes Skrillex
and think that this is a gold standard of fat sound.

3. Social networking means its easier to build a more personal relationship with followers of your music. How important is it for you to keep in close contact with fans of your music?

I always keep in it. For example in time of tour after each set I always buy some beers and buzz with “mortals” I always answer on messages in social networks.

4. whats your favourite track on your label?

Hard to make a choice ’cause I like everyone. But leaders is:
1 Roofout – Best Spring
2 Crispo – Moments
3 N.Killah – Maybe

5. what producers should we look out for?

N’Killah! No kidding is Faib, Pixelord, Roofout, Crispo (CRSP), Reixtra.

6. whats your favourite track in your record collection and why?

Tes La Rok – Cold Blooded – I never get tired of that track!

7. what are your influences?

Everything around… Music, movies, videogames, smoke

8. Do you think its important for producers to try new things musically?

To do something new is important in any deed. Progress is our life!

9. When are you bringing Robot Bodypop to Russia?

When russian people stop sacrifice their kids in the name of Skrillex.
But I told about RBP to my fans and friends.

10. Whats the biggest animal you can throw over a crossbar?

Dog Sony ERS-7W AIBO ))

Project 13 Manchester

Underground music continues to flourish with the passion of either a solo player or collective group. Its this passion that has gained streaming audio/ visual radio station Project 13 recognition and a following in Manchester and beyond. Going out live from the studio (which also doubles as one of the founders bedrooms) every Wednesday, this group pushes the boundaries of the genres they frequent. Branching out into club nights and now also podcasts its unknown in what direction this collective will head next but they are a solid and reliable choice for bass heavy music. Alongside the residents, recent guests have included Thelem, Guy Richards, Hedmuk, Compa, Biome and Pandemik with many of the shows available on the channels archives. Be sure to check these guys out.
