I decided to share some of the tunes i´ve been finding across the web these days and that i´m really into. Regular readers of the blog may have realized that dubstep, 2-step and the UK and US bass sounds really work for me. The smooth and deep atmosphere found in some of the chilled dubstep tracks is unique to me in electronic music and the melancholic feel to the burial-like sounds is great, specially for this time of the year in northern europe. On the other hand the new garage and 2-step sounds being produced have a really fresh and funky feel to them…So some of this stuff is reallly groovy and danceable, and some ist just to lean back and think about the last time you´ve felt sand and salt-water between your toes. And it should not forget to mention that most of these tracks are recent but that im just posting stuff i like without wanting to present the freshest sounds around. Big up!

The first 2 tracks are from Sbtrkt. First one is a remix by Sbtrkt from MJ Cole´s track “Sanctuary” released originally in 1999. I listened to MJ Cole for many years and i think this remix works great for the new directions garage is going. The second is dubstep but goes for smooth danceable rythm (forthcoming on Brainmath Rec in March/April 2010). Sbtrkt is a London based producer..have a eye on him!
Shortstuff & Brackles
Third track ist from Shortstuff & Brackles, 2 producers based in south england. A future garage track, really nice melody and vibe. Shortstuff´s myspace is here, and Brackles here.
This track was released on the Compilation “Fabric Presents Elevator Music: Vol. 1″ in February 2010.
