Back once again for the riverside master....

Welcome to 2010, a futuristic paradise of innovation and wonder! Or so it seemed way back in the early nineties where shit hair cuts, flannel shirts and tight stone washed jeans ruled supreme. Oh how things have changed since then. The likes of Tomorrow's world had promised us jet packs, flying cars, computerised clothing, holidays in space and all your nutritional needs would be answered in a handy dandy pill form, who can blame us for feeling unforfilled by these false prophesies?
In the absence of such bare necesseties I guess the only thing we can do is give you some bass. Here's a few bootlegged numbers to check out. Firstly one track which many a dancefloor has been exposed to last year; Sidney Samson's riverside track (something that took a few goes to gain our affection over here). The link below adds a bootleg element from a well known big beat lick...

Then it's over to 'fresh out the box' Belgian DJ/producer duo Tss for two favorites collided together in a highly acceptable way...
check out their tunes and mix action on the myspaz 'ere

And who here isn't into a Jack Beats remix? I mean really...

More as it comes our way.

Sometimes it's a single time Wub...

A couple of vocal dubstep influenced tracks to get stuck into; firstly Maya Jane Coles and Lena Cullen aka She is Danger to re-address that skewed balance of dubstep being owned by nerdy bloke producers...
Their remix of the current mainstreamer from Ellie Goulding...

Ellie Goulding – Under the Sheets (She is Danger remix)

Next up from Canadia it's Zeds Dead. Who is Zed? Well there's two of them and they've been making on hell of a noise for a couple of stiffs. Highly recommeded are these two tracks but we shall be keeping a close watch on this duo and hoping they'll make a journey to these shores soon...

Blue Foundation - Eyes On Fire (Zeds Dead Remix)
Sublime – Doin Time (Zeds Dead Summer Grime Remix).mp3

Two more for the road?  Ok then, an unknown remixer has done the business with the Aphex Twin classic window licker and the almost as equally obscure Enigma & Shorterz remix of the garage banger Double 99, enjoy...

London crew...

It's Saturday, and that means it's time to shak out. So all London crew, head South and make your way to the marvellous Corsica Studios where Un Bongo and Spam Fritter will be bringing the bass and the tropical riddims. These two sets of promoters have teamed up and put together hench line up of some of the most formidable and fantastic DJ's and producers 'pon the block. The blurb promises...

"Bongo basslines/fresh funky/tribal rollers/safari beats/glitchy shakers/badboy bashment - East London carnival vibes. Taking you through Africa, across to the Caribbean, up South America, below the underground subway labrynth of bongo drummers in elephant & castle, right inside the grimey arches of the train station."

And that's just one room! With sets from Rag and Bone head honcho Warlock, as well as Rinse FM / FWD>> badman Roska, plus D-Malice, Smutlee and Deamonds this is set to blow, ya dun know. Plus all of this tropical badness is being served up with a hot and meaty Spam Fritter who will be bringing...

"Elephant bass/Dub Stomp/Two-ton step/Mutant Rave/Hefty House. Big like Badman. Leave the cool attitudes at the bus stop, this one brings you the rise of the idiots!"

And who are we to argue with a line up that includes Supra1, Kanji Kinetic, Squires of Gothos, Bruce Stallion and the Bump & Grind DJs.

Heavy like ya mum... see you by the Funktion1!
