126 / WhiteGold: Dance With Me

WhiteGold specialises in house, electronic and future garage genres. Katie (WhiteGold), comes from Manchester. Her recent music is getting more and more popular by the day, so she is definitely one to look out for in 2014. This track was dedicated to a very dear friend. It has been remixed by Katarrhaktes.

097 / Ohsaurus: Life Time

Back for a third installment is the latest epic EP from Ohsaurus. More relaxed, chilled, and infused with the glow and warmth of summer, this brings greater emphasis on Ohsaurus’ house and dub influences. Nevertheless it retains his traditional wit, huge beats, wonkiness and all round ability to put a dirty great smile on your face.

072 / Kabukiman: You’re Right, Let’s Bail

Kabukiman drops with seven stunning tracks of genius improvised, rough and ready beats and melodies. Astonishingly, this was written, recorded, mixed and mastered in one day.

071 / Fudgedubnofunk: Solvency II, Release 1

Solvency 2 is a fundamental review of the capital adequacy regime for the European insurance industry. It aims to establish a revised set of EU-wide capital requirements and risk management standards that will replace the current Solvency requirements.

So, this psychobabble provided the context, Katarrhaktes provided the vocalisation of this psychobabble and then I built the electrobeatsplurge to bring the whole thing to life (also inspired by the stresses, strains and brainfunkin madness of the project I started working on in September last year to implement this darn “directive” in the company I work for!!!).

051 / Fudgedubnofunk & Friends: The Croydon Library Project

Fudgedubnofunk writes:
The Croydon Library Project was born one cold, wet and windy January or February lunchtime in 2001. I had popped into the library just to get out of the rain and cold. At the time I was working on a music project called ‘Amalgamation’, so I had a pad and pen with me all the time to jot down words and ideas. So, there I was and this kind of paranoia came over me, all dark and spooky and almost subconsciously I wrote down 4 nonsensical lines of “poetry”. The original intention was just one track, but it seemed to me there was more mileage in the thing, so I punted the recorded vox and some of the sounds from the original track to some other electronic music makers on Electomancer.com … and the project grew from there. Over the course of 2-3 years around 20 new versions (most of which are here) were created in a variety of styles, I set up a webpage and put together this compilation, which has stayed locked in the vaults …until NOW!!

041 / Fudgedubnofunk: Computer Music

The concept/theme that underpins the sonics of “computer music” are the sounds of the C64 and the (almost) final death throws of Fudgedubnofunk’s laptop. The tunes here amalgamate all the various styles and sounds from Fudgedubnofunk’s previous musical exploriments. So, there’s something for everyone (who likes techno, breakbeat, dnb, ambient, glitch, drones and general weirdness at least!)
