Magical Music from Koreless

I fall in love again…..

A Newcomer from Glasgow. His music shaped from his heart and soul. Waving melodies, which breaks on the impulsive bass in beautiful fine and fragile mosaics.



Sepalcure – The debut album

November 28th, 2011 // No Comments // Posted by Lukas

The debut album of the acclaimed duo Machinedrum (Travis Stewart) and Braille (Praveen Sharma) is finally out. I saw Sepalcure in Berlin’s Berghain and for me that was one of the best dances of the year. The live show rocks, so does their music. You can still listen to the full length album if you follow this link (for some reason not always working) or check out the hotflush album preview link below.

Nooka Jones – Impulse Control on Percussion Lab

July 8th, 2011 // 2 Comments // Posted by Lukas

One of my favourite mixtapes these days. Percussion Lab’s 23 year old Nooka Jones also described as their “intern” in the attempt of merging all the grooves he loves in one mix. Check him out at Just about my way of thinking.. stop calling it names, it’s music.

It’s fitting that the first feature mix we’re posting after a long overdue site upgrade is by Nooka Jones. Nooka joined the Percussion Lab family as our ‘intern’ last Fall. He hasn’t done much in the way of coffee retrieval, office sweeping, or other typical intern tasks; his duties more or less consist of straight rocking the opening slot (and sometimes the closing slot) of our weekly Monday night Percussion Lab Radio event.

Nooka is one of the most open and curious dj’s I’ve met. His sets are defined by seamless mixes and a freakishly comprehensive knowledge of the history of dance music for a 23 year old. In his first (almost all vinyl!) mix for the site, Nooka goes the ‘journey’ route, choosing to cram all of his disparate influences and passions into a single mix.

Long story short, it works. From the funky abstract bubblings of Falty DL, Seafloor and Soul Clap, to the pure house stylings of Oliver $ and Catz n Dogs, to producers of the moment like Addison Groove, Boddika, and Sepalcure, he touches on all of the various genres and sounds that make up the wide open world club music is enjoying in a post-dubstep moment.

There’s a lot of shit attached to that term, ‘post dubstep’, but I think it fits. For the last year or so – dare I say since the end of Dub War NYC? – wherever you go to hear dance music, you’re hearing people play across genre lines. We’ve been calling it ‘bass music’, but post dubstep fits as well…dubstep was more than a sound, it was a way of viewing the dancefloor, the global dance culture, the studio, and the speakers themselves. As the genre devolved into metal-influenced basslines and a brostep culture, the heads took off for the far corners of the dance music world, forcing cumbia, reggae, house, UK Funky, hip hop, grime, dubstep, and jungle back into the blender, and instead of coming up with the next ‘It sound’, decided to put it all under one umbrella, and just groove.

Let’s be clear: ‘Post dubstep’ isn’t a genre title, it’s a state of mind. The ‘Next Big ‘Sound’ is gathering itself in the wings, to be sure, but in the meantime, if you listen to this mix, you’ll see that wherever we’re going as a scene, we’re gonna have a good time on the way. Nooka Jones nails the cross genre moment we’re in…Enjoy.

I discovered BNRY.. from London as the soundcloud profile states, but there’s not much out there about them/her/him. So let the music speak for itself.
The best thing is.. all their soundcloud tracks are free to download. I like BNRY!

Porkchop for J’aime Le Dubstep #117

June 16th, 2011 // 1 Comment // Posted by Lukas

J’aime Le Dubstep features quite a lot of mixtapes, and generally they are a little bit to rough for me. This one got me though.. exploring the deeper side of bass, Porkshop from San Francisco puts together a wicked mixtape.. keep an eye on this guy!

His Bio states:

San Francisco based DJ/Producer Porkchop (Benjamin Keyser) has built a rising obelisk of sound stemming from the muscles and chambers of the underground scene into the high gloss swash of the refined dubstep movement above. In addition to his solo offerings, Porkchop contributes to many of the SF bass-fixated conglomerates and operates half of ADSUM with Mikey Fisher (Future Simple Project). His live performances are a mix of heady minimalist dubs and spontaneous compositions, further blurring the lines between DJ, musician, and artist.

You can also listen to some of his own tracks here:

Zomby – Natalia’s song

May 30th, 2011 // No Comments // Posted by Lukas

I am just in the mood for this. Released this month as a single, this is the first thing Zomby released under his own name since the One Foot in Front of the Other mini-LP in August 2009 (src).
Subtle.. dreamy.. unsettling. Just my thing.

DFRNT for J’aime le Dubstep #102

March 30th, 2011 // No Comments // Posted by Lukas

I really love the deeper end of dubstep, where garage, 2-step and dubstep blend to extensive soundspheres. And until now i enjoyed every single one of DFRNT‘s mixtapes..
This one is for J’aime le Dubstep, an extensive ressource and great place on the web for all things dubstep.

DRFNT´s Blog “Sitting Ovation” is also worth a recommendation.. its full of good stuff! Visit here.
