All Of Ye Who Stand In Front Of Broadband Shall Witness MP3 Mixes Fall On You.

Fine - I can see the transformative effect of the net in assisting the networked organizational models of social movements. That's as obvious as the piss flowing past your shoes on the top deck of the 77a on a Saturday night. But people don't really sit at home having it large to online dj mixes with their mates? Either way online mixes are one of the best methods available to delve into new sonic territory. With this in mind, Aaron Spectre (aka Drumcorps) is somebody who delivers sets firmly tinged with a neo-ragga nonsense that veers from the full on amen assault that is the standard of breakcore to deep throated vocal melodies along the "babylon boi" mould riping it along pounding dance hall bass lines. Is it any wonder Peel started champioing this bloke in the weeks before his death? He played the Ice Bar in Dublin not so long ago and earned some props from Pitchfork when this mix came to their attention, and there's more from Mashit acts over here. In my books his Life We Promote mix is better than the Pitchfork endorsed Bastard Mix, with a raging metal guitar sample spilling in behind some driVen breaks at 8m39s, it'll leave ya begging for more. This really is the stuff of digital DJ-ing shuttling back and forth between perfectly beat mapped tracks, think Bong-ra with the rock guitars and hip-hop vocals dropped for some ragga ranting ala the Bug (which he uses) at a frantic pace, pounding amens and death metal.

And now for something completely different. Ebauche is a Dublin based producer, who travels in much the same world of many of the other oddities to be found in Dublin left of centre electronica scene, playing regular gigs at Lazybird and the Ice Bar and working as part of the Alphabet Set collective. Back in October he released his first full length album called Incomplete Watch Movement which is a heads down collection of ambient soundscapes to make your head twirl, before going plonk on the desk as you are shuttled off to sleep. This stuff really washes all over you, and is freely available over here.
