Personally I thought the Mala/Loefah set was one of the worst I've ever seen them do...Loefah opened it big with those flowdan tunes but he just anthem bashed after that...would have liked to have seen Mala let go and get into a groove on his own for an hour tbh, him and Loefah are so far apart sonically now that it must be hard to do the b2b thing properly. Left disapointed.
Maybe worth checking the recent appleblim set on rinse from friday for some mimimal dubby stuff: http://gotdarker.com/?fileref=cde1f35895bb5348ff25d36a1205bc08
Also the Kode 9 Sonar mix if you haven't checked it out already: http://gotdarker.com/?fileref=c6521d92e4eb00df5eb311d776faffd0
Are those too mainstream?
does anyone have a tracklisting for that appleblim set? i can't tell you how much i am enjoying dubstep again since the crossover with minimal techno has started producing such fruitful results.
My feelings precisely. I really hate to say it but I just wanted Mala to go on. Usually they really bring it when they're together but I felt it was just so disjointed. Loefah is going through a bit of a dry spell too it seems, I hope he pulls himself out of it soon. All worth it for the new Mala tunes though. Miracles... Miracles... Miracles... Miracles... Miracles... Miracles...
Also had the unpleasant experience of some aggressive male posturing and intimidation from some extremely large shaven-headed idiots who were looking to flex a girl I was with! Pretty un-DMZ
I didn't really enjoy either Chef b2b Walsh or LD b2b Hijack either, although Chef played a couple of sick tunes. Joe Nice killed it in the second half of his set though, after City Cycles he took it really nice and deep, the overt dubby vibes were such a welcome contrast. Joanna Newsom remix was one of the tunes of the night! And MZN vs DMZ
I haven't seen one but I could probably knock it up... are there any tracks in particular or is it the whole thing?
*interested* Care to name names? Or link to mixes?re. the fringes - just feel that the production values have gone up enormously. there are some seriously trippy and mindbending tracks out there now, which is not a description i'd normally attribute to dubstep in the past.
