New release by myself, offered in FREE DOWNLOAD thanks to Noisybeat
netlabel. These three tunes had been really sitting for too long,
now you can go get'em ! ;)
words from the label
netlabel is showcasing Cixxx J with this surprise release, three
big tunes which have been kept unreleased for too long. Noisybeat
has taken them at last to bring them to you, for free, as usual.
“Outlook“ is the opener, pure electric funky, as swingey and dirty
it can get. Tune was made by Cixxx J the night before he left for
that festival in Pula to play his set in 2011, and for sure you can
feel those warm festival vibes by listening to it. After many free
download links yet countless expired, not working and dodgy ones,
the tune is finally and officially made available to the public.
Backpassband is technological funk, elevated to the stratosphere, a
tune which will make you dance and float you to the clouds like a
balloon. With a lot of radio plays on stations like SubFM and
gathering early support coming from a broad range of DJs like Cal
Cutta, BunZer0, Alis/Subeena, SimonOff, EshOne, Valta/Kievbass,
Bombaman, Dubray/Mousai Radio and many others, BackPassBand is
definitely an all-time and all-styles winner! Cixxx J says goodbye
with “bandLOW“ then, the ruffest and darkest one in the collection.
The tune features a sub bass which can tear your speakers up
dominating the whole, and sleazy and dirty sounds to make it even
more intense. For all of you music lovers, djs and producers in the
constant struggle to find new fresh current uncompromising yet good
tunes, this is what you`re looking for. So go get it because its

feature on the Bass Pon Mi blog: Junglists 2012 Roundtable!
Alongside Fazo, we'll be featuring lost of artists from the past
and the present and for sure and we'll know from their own mouth
and words what to expect from this Junglism Renaissance we're
livin!!! Press play, get it rolling and lets put it just like Fazo
would: "Let your feet stomp"! ;) Can't go wrong with a few links
about our man Fazo here
http://www.infuzion.it and here
This is really too good not to be shared!!! Hailing from the
UK and not a new producer on the map at all, Quantum Soul was
apparently sitting on this for a couple years before showing it to
the public and oh my, how overwhelming this is!!! What a perfect
blend of different influences, without sounding "new age" at all!!!
That's how we love it, that's how we feelin' it, BIG UP GUY!
The good fellas at Noisybeat netlabel have just put this one
out for FREE download! Original mix by Remote Guest List, and
remixes by myself, Jahpawa, Bist, Reeven Andy, Mouch and Outlaw
Producer. Different flavors, UK Funky, House, Dubtechno, Dubstep
and whatnot, and definitely SOULFUL!
Lately I've came up with some juicy and ofter overlooked
marvelous tunes offered for FREE download and trust me when I say
you're in for a treat! Keep reading, keep downloading, keep vibing,
keep dancing as always on Bass Pon Mi, let's drop!
Top rework from the man like Robbing Hood bringin on
the ruckas with the remix of "Reggae Sounds", original by the dub
poet Linton Kwesi Johnson! Tune starts off with a older Kode9-esque
atmosphere, but then it goes on a sound and melodic journey which
is all original and personal. For you which can't save a day if not
filled by some fresh and new HEAVY music, be it dubstep, reggae or
whatever else, here's the first FREE download, for your pleasure!
From the ever and always amazing Moonshine label which really
is solidifyin its reputation by the release, 24 days ago they had
the excellent Bukkha on the remix buttons. Tundra Dub by the master
like Radikal Guru was the one touched and yes listening to it is
like travelling. Jump on board, press play and the free download
button. Then share it with your friends, share the feelings, share
I fall in love and can't resist with producers which start
with a sick sound signature and then improve and improve and
improve and improve and NEVER STOP. One of those is Notthingham's
rootikal-est Adam Prescott, which really can't put a feet wrong as
lately!!! Not only his production is growing tighter by the tune
but also his musical horizons are broadening always. On his
soundcloud there's a full slew of quality free downloads so let's
share the music and let's share the love
Trust me!!! From
the left, Cixxx J, Saulya & Radic. A very bright pic took at
Outlook Festival 2011, into the Dungeon
While there are gazillions of music out there, its amazing
how certain tunes can still "say something" actually, its amazing
how a great tune can still stand out loud and proud like this!
"Harlem" by Nottingham's finest Saulya & Radic is some
soulful number you can't help but vibe to, the guys really managed
to put a lot of SOUL into this and put a lot of actual GROOVE into
this! Each'n'everytime I press play on this, its fuckin shivers
down the spine, and I feel my blood temperature raising, and I bet
for a lot of you all out there, its the exact same feeling!!!
The guys are kind enough to snatch some dubs this way at
times, and this is how I took advantage of Saulya's "2066" chune,
which you can check how it maximously destroys the dancefloor over
here in Italy
(FYI, 2066 drops into Bionics' "Dubcore")
If you've been dabblin' around dubstep for some time, you
might know about a certain producer which goes by the name of Coki.
It's said a lot of young bloods try and fail to imitate him. That
said, let me tell you Radic can be even better at dropping
so-called STINKERS such as THIS ONE.
And yes, these guys can really handle ANY kind of vibe, bass
It was Saulya again on this one...
And there's more, almost endless wealth of dubs, released
unreleased tunes... get your grasp by the full soundcloud player
dem...and remember there's 10 times more than this!
IMPORTANT: Smoke Area is not anymore forthcoming dBox, that
label fallen to be the most useless "label" ever *cough!ahem!* said
So averagely their uploads are like...
11 MONTHS OLD???
Have they quit making music??? What are they cooking?!? What
they've been up to?!?
Maybe we'll discover soon... on these pages ;))) Come check
With a career starting in the late nineties and countless
worldwide appearances and sick releases, tha man like FREQ NASTY
needs no introduction!!! In the exclusive interview below we
talk about his current work, the way he lives the current state of
things in music, past and inspirations, and whatnotelse!
started releasing on Botchit & Scarper, moved on to Skint and
dropped his latest ones on California's Muti Music. After the much
acclaimed "Dread at the Controls" release, its time for the remixes
to drop, and how sick they are! Culprate, Sugarpill, Greg Reve,
Lowriderz and the FreQ himself bring the incendiary substances,
sure to burn everything in their sight!
starters, press play and start enjoying these heavy beats!
BPM: Hello Darin, and let me thank you and welcome you on Bass Pon
Mi! How are you feeling?
FN: Great. Just heading back from the extremely awesome Symbiosis
Festival in the desert in Nevada. Played a FreQ Nasty set, A Dub
Kirtan All Stars set with the band, and did 2 work shops so
definitely enjoying waking up in a cool and dustless hotel room in
Reno last night.
BPM: It’s been some time I firstly discovered about you, “Amped”
was the reason why. I love how “squishy” that tune feels! You still
FN: I always find it hard to judge my own tunes. I think I’d make a
crap parent if my attitude to tunes is anything to go by…. I
feel connected with my old tunes because I have spent so much
time and energy bring them into the world and then playing them
out, but even rigt after I finish them I always hear how they could
be better. Funnily enough Herve hit me up on twitter and very
generously said it was one of his favorites which I was chuffed
about as I love his stuff. It’s hard to judge your own tunes in
retrospect tho. I have thought about remixing it so I guess that
has to be a good indication that I like it J
How did your production change since those days to the
FN: As you move thru the different phases of your career you learn
more about sound, other styles of music and ways of creating music,
and hopefully become a little more open minded and are able to
express those new modes more effectively with stronger skills.
Regardless of this process, every time I make a tune I feel like a
kid starting from scratch if I’m honest. BPM:
What’s your current favourite tune by yourself? What’s “the
FN: My favorite thing that I have done lately I guess is the
remix I did of Die Antwoord’s “I Fink Ur Freeky”. Odd, as it’s the
only breaks thing I have done for many years, but updated with some
big Dubstep drops in there too. A bit of breakbeat versus New skool
(Btw, this is another *FREE* download so go get this as
BPM: Best remix of a tune of your own and why? Can be more than
FN: Greg Reve’s remix of Dread at the controls I think is wicked….
real future shizz and unusual in tone and arrangement. He’s an
I also love the Liquid stranger remix of Bon Merde -
tho I don’t play it so much as he used a bunch of weed
smoking lyrics from the accapella I sampled and I don’t smoke these
days so I feel like a bit of a hypocrite playing it J .
Stonking remix tho !
BPM: You always managed to stand out from the crowd and be very
eclectic while never “losing it”, like in your latest mix. How
would you explain your taste if you had to put it in a few
FN: Bass Music? – FutureStep? – Eclectronica? - BPM:
Your favourite way of discovering the next big tune you will can’t
wait to drop inna di dance?
FN: Mostly thru friends - hearing a mate play at a club or
having someone hit me up and say “ You have to hear this!!!”
BPM: Mention a couple sick ones and some artists worth watching,
FN: Girl UNIT, Greg Reve, Sugarpill,
BPM: It’s been a lot of time so far you’ve been riding the scene
and showing no signs of stopping. You started being part of the
scene while physically released music was the biggest part of the
game, probably. How do you think the market changes can, had, and
will have and impact the scene?
FN: The biggest change has obviously been the fact that the
internet made music freely available any where and in many cases
for free if people chose to download it rather than buy it.
The lack of revenue from vinyl records has meant a lot of
people dropped out of the game. But it also bought waaaay more
people into the game who love music for music ‘s sake are making it
out passion for music rather than profit. Of course it’s great to
have both but in this industry the drive to produce and create
music and to DJ it out to others is more important right now in
terms of motivation than the desire to make $$$. So it’s been a big
win from the perspective of passion in the music industry amongst
those who just want to make and share good music. Music that is
being made on a laptop and a pair of speakers at home can be
distributed globally very easily now and this has had a huge impact
on the established music industry which was based on deals
that were heavily weighted toward record companies, and relied on
them making huge profits by charging music fans a lot of money. Now
each artist can reach their own fans by pushing out great tunes and
connecting with fans via Online social networks and develop a
career without having to sign over huge % to a record
company. It’s a golden age for music producers and fans right now,
and I don’t mean that in terms of money. I’m talking about
artistry, passion and distribution of the work inspired by those
BPM: Is it really relevant for you?
FN: Of course. We all play by the rules of the current paradigm to
some extent at least. I love the availability to connect with fans
and the ease of release to those who want to hear my music.
BPM: Keep dropping those heavy beats man, and good luck in keeping
on doing it! Anything else you want to say?
FN: Thanks for the time and space to connect with you and your crew
here…. and come and say hi if I’m playing in your town ! blessup,

BPM: Yes King, tell us the story behind this EP. How did your
collab with Jah Mirikle start and what can we expect in the future?
KY: A friend of mine showed me the video of Jah Mirikle and
Rodney P's "Live up" single and instantly i got in touch as i was
feeling his vocal and sent him the instrumental of Warrior charge,
The rest is history... as for future plans i have my third E.P all

outfit which my brother has been part of for some time over in the

inspirations in my musical life.
BPM: Large up for the use of those samples in the tune, the
second drop is amazing, its really effin uplifting! I can't
personally wait to drop this! How was the reaction the first time
you tested it?
KY: The reaction has been crazy,i think i remember first
playing it on the Sub Slayers Drive time show on www.koollondon.com
and the response was just insane! I wanted to make a tune that
would appeal to a wider audience and something that had a conscious
One of the
highlight releases of 2012, this is!
BPM: "ALL JUNGLIST'S MUST BIG UP!!!" You are a strong
believer in what jungle, dub and roots legacy represent and man I
can feel it in your tunes!!! It's amazing how you manage to make
the message keep on going strong by dropping those basslines, how
would you describe the magic of your creation? What can we expect
from the scene to emerge next up?
KY: I grew up in Lewisham S.E.London during the 80's and was
surrounded by Reggae music, I would listen to Saxon sound tapes and
fell in love with the music and so when early rave music came about
it was an instant attraction as alot of this music was sampling the
reggae music i grew up on. Jungle music has come around full circle
and has gone through many different changes and now 2012 is all
about "Jungle Unity" bringing it together in all its different

Back with a
blast with the features on BPM, we're proud to host this exclusive
interview with Memory9, performance-r visionnaire-extraordinaire,
music beats & bass maker, master of chaos indeed. We talk about
his love for bass, Monome and performance tools, his label and
people he loves. A single interview is really not enough because he
is a busy one I tell you, but everything must start from something
so I hope you'll enjoy reading this on ;)
below and don't forget to download this one below because it's a
FREE DOWNLOAD and its exceptionally out-of-any-box+exceptional so
Memory9, and welcome to Bass Pon Mi, lets start it simple. Do you
Q: Why do
you like it and how did you become involved with it? How did your
love affair with the low frequencies begin?
A: I think
it was originally because of drum and bass. Playing on squat rigs
in London for a couple of years definitely cemented that, those
bins were huge.
Dragonball remix got me totally hooked and fascinated with how
chaotic yet enjoyable and danceable it sounds. I want and need more
of that sampledelia, will you bring it on? Or was it a one-off
A: It's not
a remix and they are not samples, it's a cover. I played all the
synth and bass lines you hear in there. It was a bit of an
experiment but some of those ideas will come back in my next
releases in a more refined form I hope.
Q: Do you
draw some influences from Japan or you made that cover just for the
fun of throwing a couple Kamehamehas? A: I love Japanese culture, I
am deeply enamoured with its aesthetics, both in traditional and
rocking a raggage tune with the Monome-
Q: I see you
had Daedalus among your guests in nights you promoted and I know
you use a Monome too. What other performance tools you like to use?
Tell us about them and about the Monome community, if you're part
A: I was
lucky enough to support Daedelus on stage in London a few years ago
when he was using a prototype of the Monome, he tipped me off to it
so I managed to get one off the first batch, before it became a
cult object. I hear they are very hard to get now! In my live shows
I also use Ableton, a microkorg, sometimes bass, sometimes guitar,
Q: Do you
think such tools can improve performance, I mean the link between
the musician and the people listening?
A: I think
that tools like the Monome can help bridging that gap between
laptop performance and traditional instrumental performance. When
someone makes a sound by touching an instrument, that information
is part of the experience of the player and of the listener alike.
The sound exists because of that action. When you use a laptop on
stage you have a super powerful studio at your fingertips, but can
end up looking like you are checking your email, because that
causality is lost. So controllers are great. But then, if there is
only a bunch of technology it's just a big gimmick. I think when
you see a guy like Daedelus play people are in such awe because you
don't have to look at him to enjoy what he is doing - the music is
incredible - but if you do, there's a guy actually playing an
instrument, rocking out virtuoso style. Best of both worlds.
about your forthcoming Black Dragon EP on Mnemonic Dojo? Is that
your first label project and why did you start it? Do you think the
label will be featuring just your material or other artists' too?
Spill the beans.
Dojo is my label, yes. I wanted to start a label for a while,
mostly to do limited edition vinyl, cassettes, fun little things
like that. It's nice to be able to put stuff out whenever you want
to sometimes, and I love looking after every detail, artwork,
packaging and so on. It's an artisan thing. So for Black Dragon
we're doing a limited edition picture disc vinyl press, with the
sleeves individually silk screened by hand, for instance. The label
is mostly for Memory9 singles, collabs and some very talented
friends I made around the world.
Q: Both "One
of these Days" and "Fractals and Blades" are superfunky numbers,
especially the first one is a potential hit I feel! A lot of
contemporary Juke is missing that "bloody" edge while I think you
nailed it perfectly! What's the story behind this tune?
A: I was in
the dark about footwork for a good minute, then I heard a couple of
things about a year ago and it really resonated with me. Some of
the ideas in there were very similar to what I was doing, in terms
of using 808 kicks as central building blocks for example, like I
did in my remix for the Electric, DJ Vadim's band. The grooves felt
really exciting too, so I decided to make some. I also wanted to
tribute a certain group with that sample. It worked out pretty
nicely in the end, I think.
and Blades" makes me think I'd love to hear some collabo between
you and Swindle. Do you know his works? And what do you reckon?
Would be interesting to say the least!
A: Yes, I
like his work a lot. It would be cool.
about your "local" crew? Who are the people involved?
A: The Milan
crew I am affiliated with is called Well Founded, and I couldn't
possibly big them up enough. They are a four-strong group of super
dedicated warriors of the cause who put up events and keep pushing
forward despite the fact that Milan is often a tough cookie form
that point of view. The people involved are Daniele aka DNN and
Andrea aka Dama, two DJ's, Domitilla, a singer, and Matteo, a light
designer. These people keep trucking forward and are putting their
city on the map for the music they love without compromises. They
are very young too. The world needs more people like them.
relatively unknown artists you think we should be watching
Tank and Valance Drakes aka Mussck, two London heads who did
remixes for the vinyl edition of Black Dragon, really sick
producers, then Digi G'alessio, an Italian beatmaker really making
waves right now, SF based The Redivider, a sonic genius who I would
love to bring out through the Dojo, and Berlin based Dingy Dysu, a
brilliant Japanese man making a style of music he calls horrorstep.
Keep vibin' to the Memory9 vibes by pressing play again on his
latest mix "Year of the Black Dragon", we're pretty sure this will
be exactly the one!
And, BTW! We
really really reccomend you checking the links below, there's so
much more than this about this man you won't believe. I wonder how
much this man sleeps and I'm even doubting he sleeps at all!

dalle 21 alle 24 con selecta di DJ Dima, serata
presentata da Jack Makkia, open mic
per gli mc presenti, showcase
di Fuoco negli occhi (Bologna-Bruxells), EKC aka Errori Kronici
crew (Lecce-Bologna). A seguire
Downtown Bash a cura di DJ Madkid.
(Errori Kronici Crew) è composta da Dam, Reperto e Slesia, tre
ragazzi della provincia di Lecce. Il gruppo
nasce nel 2005 e l'anno successivo produce un paio di demo per
farsi le ossa. Nel 2007
esce il primo mixtape della crew, KAIZEN. A marzo
2009 esce il primo album ufficiale, realizzato in collaborazione
con Visione Opposta (crew di Bologna), dal titolo EMERGENZA,
riscuotendo un buon successo a livello underground. A giugno
2011 esce il primo album della crew in formazione completa (Dam +
Reperto + Slesia), dal titolo KAIZENTROPIA. Il disco
contiene le collaborazioni di: Brain (FNO) - Makkia - Bazzo -
Santiago - Dj T-Robb - Dj Rod. Le
produzioni sono curate da: Bargeman - Michel - Ceri - MareMarco -
FreshBeat - Dj Dima - Amon - Jason - Rough Chop - Saiko.
Negli Occhi (FNO) nasce nel 2004. Un collettivo che vede l’unione
di due Mc italiani, Chiodo e Brain, un Mc italo-francofono, Prosa,
e una funksoulsister, Micha. La crew
nasce con artisticità spontanea: le affinità musicali che lega i
quattro componenti del gruppo porta alla creazione dei primissimi
brani che ne delineano da subito un’originalità caratterizzata da
suoni underground amalgamati al soul, nonché dalla componente
prerogativa della crew è quella di assecondare la propria sete di
musica e di scrittura, prediligendo tematiche introspettive e
realistiche, atmosfere notturne e talvolta esoteriche. La scrittura
degli mc è una scrittura metrica, tecnica, in continua evoluzione
nel suo intento di diventare un tutt’uno con l’intenzione della
contatto fra i diversi background musicali e culturali dei quattro
ragazzi, fa sì che atmosfere cupe si intreccino con la dolcezza del
soul creando quell’equilibrio che riesce a dilettare intelletto e
udito senza risultare forzato.

resto d'Europa. Negli ultimi tempi ha fatto fermentare le sue idee
in studio e i suoi dubplate sono suonati da Youngsta, Mala e
Distance che l'ha preso subito sulla sua Chestplate. Proprio per
l'ultimo party dell'etichetta, ha preparato un mix per il Fabric di
Londra, completamente composto da anteprime esclusive non ancora
rilasciate sul mercato. Assolutamente un nome "on the rise", sulla
cresta dell'onda, da non perdere.
A comporre il resto dello show i
resident della Solid Crew: Cixxx J, Bist, Wormhole, Cocco, Yulia, D
Smoker & Dave S. Ingresso intero 15 euro, 10 euro in lista, con

Kindergarten & Solid Crew inaugurano la nuova e la prima
club night 1000% DUBSTEP. Si parte venerdì 3 febbraio con un nome,
anzi due, che proprio un anno fa infiammarono il Link per l'Outlook
Festival Italian Launch Party: GOLI & ASHBURNER ! Direttamente
dalla terra madre del dubstep, stampano i loro dischi su Ministry
of Sound e su GetDarker e hanno portato la loro musica in Belgio,
USA, Svezia, Olanda, Germania nonchè all'Outlook Festival in
Croazia per la terza volta di seguito. La loro nuova uscita "Get
Up" su Steppas, etichetta collegata ai maestri del dub Alpha &
Omega, ha preso il massimo su MIXMAG, 5 cuffie ed è in chart su
tutti gli store di riferimento del genere e non. Hanno anche una
loro label, For the Win e alla fine del 2011 ne hanno fondata un
altra, la DEM, in collaborazione con HEDMUK, uno dei blog nominati
per i Dubstepforum Awards. Goli & Ashburner sono davvero un
condensato di energia inarrestabile e irresistibile, 1000% Dubstep!
Il live di Michael & Oliver è assolutamente devastante e non
mancherà di aiutare il nostro astronauta a farvi decollare e
portarvi con lui nello spazio! Vedere per credere!!!
Non solo UK ma anche Italia, più precisamente Cesena con i
D-OPERATION DROP nati nel 2010 dall'incontro di quattro studenti
universitari, ritrovatisi a condividere la stessa casa e le stesse
passioni. Dopo le prime collaborazioni, quasi casuali, la radio
universitaria di Cesena (Uniradiocesena) fornisce l' occasione per
gettare le basi al progetto attraverso un programma radiofonico
serale incentrato sulla musica undergrounud chiamato proprio
D-Operation Drop. Da questa esperienza il progetto prende
ufficiallmente vita diventando completamente indipendente,
staccandosi dalla radio e iniziando a darsi nuovi obiettivi quali
la produzione, il dj' ing e vj' ing. Freschi di release
sull'inglese TDM Recs, anche loro faranno parte dell'equipaggio!
Alla carica del duo inglese si aggiungeranno poi il calore e
le molle dei locals della SOLID CREW. Partiti ad ottobre con i
party all'Arterìa hanno scosso la città nei giovedì a base di
basslines e "good DJs on the turntables". Poi è arrivato
l'astronauta e nulla fu più uguale a prima. Frequenze mai udite,
strani e deformi basse, filtri e campioni da galassie sconosciute e
inesplorate. L'astronauta ci ha preso gusto e ha preso residenza
sotto le due torri e questo è solo l'inizio. E' arrivato da noi con
un ghettoblaster urlandoci addosso "1000%!!!" Cixxx J, Yulia, D
Smoker e Cocco metteranno le vostre buone vibrazioni in un
giradischi e lo faranno andare!
E per non farvi mancare proprio nulla SOLID CREW presenta il
Minimalsoul Bass Privè aka Wormhollandia con Easy G, Elle Solo,
Bist, Dub Engine e ovviamente Wormhole. E tante sorprese.

BPM: How, when and why did you became involved with
electronic and/or dance music? What do you care for the most, "and"
or the "or", and why?
: Since when I was a kid, I loved electronic music and
I always found myself wandering between genres and sub-genres.
While exploring rap, easy listening electronic music and
drum'n'bass, I had found my way into dubstep music, whilst I was
focusing my efforts onto producing music rather than
graffiti/writing art. This is how I have release myself and this is
the way I express myself, and I have fun too.
I've got to thank people like Killeralien, Aeph, Ak0pian
& Altered Beats since they teached me the basics and I'm
thankful for hours and hours of tips and audio engineering
"Electronic" and/or "Dance"? Nor the "and" or the "or" would
be prevailing, since I shock out when its time to brock out but I
love as well being creeped out by sounds when its a merely
BPM: Your current inspiration, in a single word.
BPM: Harder and harder, why that word?
Mouch: Its a matter of too many forms and sources of
inspiration. The contemporary musical chaos, the fact everyday we
got 400 new producers, the new experimental styles, my girlfriend,
my friends, my "mind-trips" in my head and everyday life. If
everything has to come together, "Mhhhh" is the result!
BPM: So if that word is forever deleted, you have to replace
it with a tune, yours or not. What it would be?
Mouch: One of my tunes? Not. Maybe 30 seconds each, tune fi
I think there's a tune which could replace my feelings about
"Mhhhh", and only thing I can say its not a dubstep one. I won't
say who made it and I want only few people to know about it. I'm
jealous about music I like, its very time-consuming and blood and
sweat to look for new good fresh underground music.
By the way, "Acquatic Family Affair" by 2562, sends me in
BPM: MSSV RSPCT, you've come a long way, but where do you
want to go?
Mouch: "MSSV RSPCT" Loool! I don't know where I'm going, I
do my own thang... in Italy we say "who lives shall see" and by the
way, no fear.
BPM: You had one vinyl release recently, did you enjoy that?
Why don't you set up your own label? (WHICH WOULD BE SIIIIIIICK!)
Mouch: Who would not enjoy being released on vinyl? By the
way its a collab between myself and my friend Dubtek from Seattle
(on Paradise Lost US - Dubtek EP [PL010]), his debut EP. It's the
only one so far, but things are moving forward.. hopes high!
By the way, vinyl physicality is something rare, its about
your music acquiring a determinate shape and you can even feel it
in your hands... a really few things give that much satisfaction.
Even if the EP was not strictly mine!
My label? I'd love that but no, I would run out of time. That
said, I'm very focused on the whole scene and on the ways it works,
so I'd know who to address before many others!
BPM: I feel honoured when I think at my tune which you
remixed (crazily, the people at that night at Link feat. Pinch
might remember :ooo)
When will it be my turn? I've asked you a fkin million times.
But now, there's no escape since this is a public place HAHA! Gotta
come and get you from your own home?
Mouch: Firstly, remixing Ital Wub was something I had really
enjoyed and I had so much fun doing it... that "haunted house" pad
sound nailed it!
So, I can declare, its your turn, I'm exporting stems of
"Eurasia 1984" [Gamma Audio UK]! "Taaaaaaac!"
If you aren't getting them in a few days, hereby I authorize
you to come pick me!
BPM: Thank you very much Fede for this interview, your time
and the effort. You can say ciao to mamma now.
Mouch: I say goodbye and thank you for having the chance of
being featured here!
Then a loud hi5 to my parents, to Anto amore mio, to all my
friends and to everyone else enjoying my music and what I do.
I also give much thanks to the producers which made the tunes
in my mix (Its my very first studio mix, so be afraid!).. tunes are
by friends which I appreciate and support and from which I get
inspiration to do my own stuff!
Love you all!!!
BPM: Come quando e perchè ti interessi di musica dance e/o
elettronica? Vale più la e o la o? E perchè?
Sono interessato alla musica elettronica fin da piccolissimo,
ho sempre curiosato tra i vari generi e sottogeneri. Dopo aver
esplorato a fondo il rap, l'elettronica più easy listening e la
drum'n bass, mi sono dedicato alla dubstep. In seguito a certe
vicende legate all'ambiente del writing (graffiti), ho focalizzato
le mie energie sulla produzione musicale. Mi esprimo e mi sfogo
smanettando con i suoni, e mi diverto pure. In questo campo ho
avuto la fortuna di avere come maestri gente come Aeph,
Killeralien, Ak0pian e gli Altered Beats, e li ringrazio per le ore
passate a spiegarmi tips e teorie audio/ingegneristiche.
Dance e/o elettronica? Non prevale nè la "e" nè la "o", mi
piace ballare come un cretino quando la piega è dance e mi piace
ascoltare e farmi assecondare dai suoni quando si tratta di
elettronica da puro ascolto.
BPM: Riassumi in una singola parola la tua ispirazione del
BPM: Sempre più difficile, perchè quella determinata parola?
Si tratta di un "Mhhhh" che riflette svariate fonti di
ispirazione. Il caos musicale contemporaneo, il fatto che ogni
giorno ci siano almeno 400 nuovi producers, le nuove correnti
sperimentali, la mia ragazza, i miei amici, i trip che ho in testa
e le situazioni che vivo. Se metto tutto insieme mi viene da dire
BPM: Ancora più difficile, quella parola viene cancellata.
Può rappresentarla un pezzo, tuo o altrui, che la rappresenti. Qual
Un pezzo mio no, magari tutti quelli che ho fatto, ascoltati
30 secondi ognuno in sequenza. Di pezzi altrui che calzano a
pennello ne avrei uno, non è dubstep ma non dico di chi/cosa si
tratta perchè voglio che lo conosca meno gente possibile. Sono
geloso della musica che ascolto. Ed anche perchè perdo un sacco di
tempo e sudo sangue per trovare robe nuove, ricercate e
underground. Comunque nell'ultimo periodo "Aquatic Family Affair"
di 2562 mi manda dall'altra parte.
BPM: MSSV Rspct, sei giunto fin qui. Dove vuoi arrivare?
Ahah! MSSV RSPCT! Non so dove sto andando, faccio la mia
cosa..chi vivrà vedrà e comunque mai paura.
BPM: Dopo il primo vinile ci hai preso gusto? Perchè non apri
una tua label? (SPACCHEREBBE TUTTO!)
Chi non ci prende gusto dopo il primo vinile? Comunque
puntualizzo che si tratta di una collaborazione che ho fatto col
mio amico Dubtek di Seattle (sotto Paradise Lost US - Dubtek EP
[PL010]) per il suo EP di debutto sotto Paradise Lost. E' l'unico
pezzo che ho su vinile al momento, anche se altre cose si stanno
muovendo proprio ora..speriamo bene! Comunque la concretezza del
vinile è una cosa rara, è la tua musica che prende una forma e puoi
toccarla..poche cose danno così soddisfazione. Pure se l'EP non è
il tuo! Una mia label? Mi piacerebbe ma no, non avrei tempo anche
per questo. Anche se sono un attentissimo osservatore della scena e
saprei verso chi indirizzarmi prima di molti altri!
BPM: Ho avuto l'onore di essere remixato da te (in un modo
pazzesco, il Link post-Pinch dell'ottobre 2010 forse ricorda :ooo)
Quando tocca a me? Te l'ho già chiesto mille volte. Ora te lo
faccio ridichiarare in pubblica piazza. Ti devo venire a prendere a
Premetto che fare il remix di Ital Wub è stato davvero
piacevole e divertente.. quel pad da "casa dei fantasmi" mi
intrigava di brutto! Ad ogni modo, ora sta a te! Ti sto esportando
gli stems di Eurasia 1984 [Gamma Audio UK]! Taaaac! Se entro pochi
giorni non ti arrivano ti autorizzo a venire a prendermi a casa!
BPM: Spazio libero. Vai con i saluti alla
mamma. Innanzitutto saluto te e ti ringrazio per l'opportunità che
mi hai dato!
E poi schiaccio una sonora cinquella ai miei genitori,
all'Anto amore mio, a tutti i miei amici e a chi piace ciò che
faccio. Colgo l'occasione, inoltre, per salutare e ringraziare
coloro che hanno sfornato i pezzi che sono nel mix (è il mio primo
studio mix, spero che nessuno me ne voglia per la scarsa abilità
nel settore!).. si tratta di amici producer che stimo e da cui
traggo ispirazione per fare la mia roba!
