While dub techno is often, almost synonymously, associated with the many aliases of Moritz von Oswald and Mark Ernestus, there are many other players active in the genre. One of them is Canadian-born and Berlin resident Scott Monteith, better known under his Deadbeat moniker. He recently set up an Indiegogo campaign to reissue three out of print albums released on ~scape between 2002 and 2005. The idea is to raise half of the money required to cover the cost for the remaster and the re-release of the albums Wild Life Documentaries, Something Borrowed, Something Blue and New World Observer. There are several perks to choose from, starting with digital versions and a six record vinyl box set, up to a personal remix or a private show. For the next four weeks, you can stream all the full albums via his SoundCloud page and make up your mind whether you want to support him.
November 10, 2014 The box set is out now and you get it from selected record stores such as Bleep!
So, I haven’t been posting anything as of lately and it might in fact go on like this for a little more. Thought I through in a selection of mixtapes that popped up during last week.
It was only a question of time until the big ones asked Vakula for one of his rare mixtapes. The Ukrainian house producer put together a selection of his tracks for Resident Advisor and answered some of their questions.
This Wednesday, Ninja Tune’s Slugabed joins Thundercat and Floating Points for a show at London’s Fabric. On the occasion, he did a mix to promote the night.
Berlin-based Machinedrum did a mix for Dummy Magazine last week. If you’re into the records he’s playing, I can also recommend Nightwave‘s podcast by Dazed Digital and Mike Paradina’s personal selection of footwork influenced tracks for RBMA Radio.
It was back in April when Manchester-based Krystal Klear graced Benji B with a guestmix. Unless you downloaded this one before, you can listen to it on SoundCloud and leave some direct feedback on this excellent mix.
And lastly, let me mention these older mixtapes I came across: Blawan’s mix at Boiler Room, Deadbeat for Inverted Audio, and Recloose‘s 2002 guestmix for Gilles Peterson.
