Rudy Zygadlo – Tragicomedies | Planet Mu

An impressive leftfield choice for September is Glasgow born producer Rudi Zygadlo‘s debut album out on Planet Mu entitled ‘Tragicomedies’.

Taking just a pinch of the formula from the current sound of Dubstep and Bass music, this journey through psychadelic piano melodies and vocal harmony draws far more from classic bands like Queen or The Beatles than it does Skream or Benga

Whichever way you look at it, it is a masterpiece which demands your attention. Earlier this month Rudi kindly released the potent ‘Russian Dolls’ track for free download, so if you are stretched for pennies you can grab before buying the full release.

 An instant classic – available now from Planet Mu.

Robot Bodypop 07.07.12

YES! Robot Bodypop comes once again with a selection so heavy its best mate is a Higgs Boson. Another 2 hours of incredible bass music all sublimely layered between 4 selectors this week. Killian comes in for the first hour followed by a 20 minute digital injection from 1nejack who’s busy circling the Earth. Selections there include smooth vibes from Bulgarian badman Mloski and Brightons Guy Andrews as well as bass heavy riddims from Spinline & Submerse as well as some other tracks taking the vibe in all manner of directions.

Don’t forget were carrying on with the Survivor track, this being the strongest track from the previous sessions selections. Keep your ears pinned back for that beauty.

Rounding everything off is, of course, the Transmit session this week provided by selectors Peaman & Hicha from Bristol. A glance at the tracklist shows they are proud of their roots and they took some time to chat breeze with the Robot Bodypop.

Stream it, download it and share with your mates. Its a sweet 2 hours of beats. Check out the ‘Free Beats’ post this week for info on where to bag more than a handful of these tracks from the producers kind enough to give them away.

Transmit Sessions Volume 3 | Controlled Kaos

ON THIS WEEKS SHOW:

This weeks transmission originates from way across the atlantic in the suburb of Chesterfield, Virginia deep inside the big ole US of A. Whilst yet to gain widespread recognition Controlled Kaos attention to detail and high workrate marks him out as one to watch in 2012.

Big on the drums and atmosphere, his tight sub weighted productions have featured on numerous free releases as well as the ‘Timelapse’ LP on the Dank N Dirty Dubz label. There’s a brand new 3 track EP in the offing on LU10 this month, and he also has forthcoming releases on Depth Records and Illicit Trade, including the heavy roller above – ‘The Force’The brand new ‘Slug Proof EP’ is out now. 

In addition to that you can catch his regular radio broadcast every wednesday between 1pm and 2pm GMT (6pm-7pm EST in the US) via electrolouis.com

We asked what we thought would be a few routine questions to get to the man behind the music.

What was your first musical purchase?

My first musical purchase was a drum set.

Okay, great. Which is your favourite track in this playist? What does it make you think about? 

My favorite tune in the mix has to be Von D – Your the one, I love the jazzy vibes in it.

We’ve not seen you do many remixes – Is there anything you are keen to have a go at? How do you feel about the whole dubstep remixing trend? 

I am not really big on remixes because I prefer to write my own, remixes are fun to mess around with though. As far as the whole remixing “trend” I think some are good some are bad and some are people just doing it to try to get noticed.

What will be the next big thing?

I have no idea what the next big thing is, I just hope it sounds good haha

Whats the biggest animal you could throw over a crossbar?

What’s a crossbar?

Er.. Sooooo..

Transmit 3, incoming!
