SHUT UP ALREADY, DAMN!…WHO IN DA HOUSE KNOW ABOUT THE GENERATION BASSQUAKE MIX?

May 25, 2009

bass

Shut up already, damn!
Tell me who in this house know about the Generation Bassquake?
(We do)

I mean really, really
If you know how 2 rock say ‘yeah’ (yeah)
If U know how 2 party say ‘oh yeah’ (oh yeah)
But if U ain’t hip 2 the rare Generation Bassquake:
Shut up already, damn!

Generation Bassquake

Everybody jump up and down

Generation Bassquake
There’s a brand new groove going round (generation bassquake)
In your funky town (generation bassquake)
And the kick drum is the fault
You gotta rock this mother, say (generation bassquake)
We gotta rock this mother, say (generation bassquake)….

Man, don’t you just LOVE PRINCE!…YES WE DO!………….shut up already, damn!

Anyway enough of that, it’s BANK HOLIDAY over here in your homie’s (DJ UMB’s), yard, UK.  Whilst Vince, The Royally Approved Prince, has been busy gigging it with our brother’s SCHLACHTHOFBRONX, all over Germany and other places, I’ve been chillin’ and laid down a NEW MIX for y’all! 🙂

This is ‘NOT’ the GENERATION BASS mix that I’ll soon be laying down exclusively for FAIRTILIZER, but a precursor, a sweetener, you might say.

It’s called the “GENERATION BASSQUAKE” mix because it includes a lot of the artists that I’ve personally been diggin’ and have covered on this blog over the last few weeks and including some of Vince’s too.

It’s a BASSSSSSQUAKKKEEEEEE MIX!!!………So, loads of BASSSS!!!

Apologies to some of my homies who I’ve missed out on this mix but man, you know I’ve either put you on previous stuff or you know that I’ll put you on upcoming mixes 🙂

Check it out for yourselves and it’s a meaty one, I think, even if I say so myself.

This mix is semi-improvised (by that I mean I gave the tracks, sequencing and mixing a once-over!) and recorded manually on my Pioneer CDJ 1000 MKII ‘s and Pioneer DJM600 mixer (Pioneer, get your fuckin’ money out and sponsor me!)…first take and one-cut recording…unmastered!

MODERAT = MODESELEKTOR + APPARAT

May 18, 2009

moderat1

Must confess I’m a huge fan of both MODESELEKTOR & APPARAT and so it’s a dream come true that in these dark economic times, mergers & acquisitions are not just the work of financial conglomerates but also of music artists!

However, I’m quite sure both Modeselektor and Apparat have not been brought together due to anything to do with finance but more so because they have a common musical understanding and love for each other sounds, as well as being good friends.  To reinforce this position, it’s not the first time that they have joined forces, as they did so way back in 2002 for an EP.

They have both come together for the new album simply called ‘MODERAT’.  Man, it’s Dubstep-Techno with shades of Radiohead with emotion and feeling, like an ELECTRONIC SYMPHONY.

MODESELEKTOR have been very, very influential upon the GLOBAL GHETTOTECH & DUBSTEP scenes that we at GENERATION BASS love so much and which has infiltrated a lot of the stuff we cover on this little blog of ours.  So I suppose they are to Global Ghettotech & Dubstep, what KRAFTWERK were to Hip-Hop & Afrika Bambaataa!  Hence ‘another’ reason why we’re covering it, cause it’s influential and plus its GREAT MUSIC.

You can listen to ‘RUSTY NAILS’ which is a gorgeous and sublime track with deep melancholic overtones.  It’s like a sister companion to APPARAT’S classic “ARCADIA” track.

LISTEN TO RUSTY NAILS HERE (and look out for a Shackleton remix of it, which is coming soon).


DJ UMB DROPS GLOBAL GHETTOTECH AGAIN!!!!!

May 12, 2009

2532784282_abf95b8a1a

My homie, the GREAT MAN, who created this AMAZING blog, ‘VINCE THE PRINCE’ posted this item a few months back.

BUT I thought  it might be cool and could do with a repost because for me, it in many ways;

EXEMPLIFIES THE GENERATION BASS EXPERIENCE!

Also it gives you all a good idea as to what’s exciting me most DJ-WISE at the minute.  BUT I WARN YOU, I am very diverse.

So I hope you don’t mind and I hope my homie doesn’t mind too.

So here it is again but this time together with VOLUME 2, which has not been posted B4 🙂

GLOBAL GHETTOTECH VOL 1 & 2  (Mostly improv, both -1 cut & 1st take-PIONEER CDJ 1000 MKII & PIONEER DJM600-Man I need an upgrade, I think)

GRAB VOL1 HERE:

AND VOL 2 HERE:

Will be doing a VOLUME 3 SOON!

WHAT IS GLOBAL GHETTOTECH?

According to Wikipedia, Global Ghettotech is a “an intentionally sardonic term coined by ethnomusicologist Wayne Marshall, describes a loosely-defined aggregate of club and sound system-based music from around the world…….Global ghettotech is not a world music-style celebration of exotic sounds, but DJ mixable hybrids constructed from drum machines and synths available the world over. This music is designed to hit hard on the dancefloor, not background conversation at your local café. These musical genres are inspired by the organ-rattling bass of massive speaker towers, sexually-charged dancers, and fierce (even violent) rivalries between local MCs, DJs and producers”.

BTW WAYNE MARSHALL AKA WAYNE WAX HAS CONFIRMED HIS APPROVAL OF THIS MIX AS BEING INDICATIVE OF HIS PHRASE.. 🙂
