KRUI DJ Set 2010-03-05

[audio:http://www.cornwarning.com/chaircrusher/2011-03-05-DJSet.mp3|titles=KRUI DJ Set 2010-03-05|artists=chaircrusner] http://www.cornwarning.com/chaircrusher/2011-03-05-DJSet.mp3 A little different than the last few sets I’ve done, as I brought the computer; I just didn’t have enough fresh vinyl for a show. It’s a combination of things that have been on mind, some for months, some as recent as this week. The Darkstar album North has been […]

2562 “Love In Outer Space” — plus ça change …

2562 (aka Dave Huismans) is one of my ‘buy on sight’ artists. Between the dubstep he does as 2562 and his more techno-esque stuff as A Made Up Sound exhibit an adventurous spirit backed by a great feel for structure and dynamics. But what struck me about “Love In Outer Space” is the choice of […]

Surfing the Nuum

As has been pondered lately, here and elsewhere, the loftily titled Breakbeat Continuum is every bit as baffling and recombinantly bizarre and wonderful and horrible as ever. I think part of the reason very few US artists have made a serious mark in any of the UK-originated break styles is that by the time people […]

Blackdown breaks down the Breakbeat Continuum, fractally

Blackdown breaks down the ‘Nuum’ Several things about this post are kinda crazy. First, there was something like an academic conference about the genres loosely under the breakbeat umbrella, but apparently with as many magazine critics and actual practitioners than academics involved. Second, what is ideally and often in fact music to go out and […]

April Of Two Minds DJ Mix

Out of work today with a cold, so I lashed up the mix I’d been collecting tracks for.  The theme, again, is dub techno & dubstep, with some detours into other genres.  The track selection basically came out of listing my ITunes library in the order of most recently added, and picking tracks that I […]

Jumping on the Dubstep Bandwagon, 5 Years Late….

I don’t claim to be an expert on Dubstep. I’m not British for one thing, and my taste runs to stuff that really isn’t in the clubbing Dubstep comfort zone. What I like about Dubstep is its heritage twice or thrice removed from Jamaican Dub, its re-purposing of the 2 step shuffle from UK Garage, […]
