Amazing lineup down at Hit + Run tonight… its a versus with Hoya Hoya and some very special guests from across the pond…the lineup includes the fantastic Daedelus, Nosaj Thing, Starkey, Datsik and others, as well as the usual faces – Jonny Dub, Drive Thru, Indigo, Al Sonar and more. Check the event info HERE.
To get you in the mood, here is yesterday’s Groovement podcast, with Brainfeeder’s DAEDELUS and Hoya Hoya’s JONNY DUB.
We will be in the Groovement studio in 2 weeks time with the Mount Kimbie boys so listen in for that!
If you came to see Onra and Martyn at Mint Lounge a few weeks back, those of you with an inquisitive ear will have noticed that there were a few other folk on the bill that were worth the entrance fee alone. Amongst these were Synkro and Caulbearers who both absolutely smashed it in their own rights.
Synkro is known for his tight, bass heavy, garage influenced productions but the track featured here Winter is a bit of a departure from that sound. Exclusive to www.mindonfire.co.uk “Winter” is a melancholic beat just in time for summer
Caulbearers are on the other side of the spectrum here. A 10 piece live funk band from Single Cell Collective playing raw, passionate funk music. There are 2 tracks available to download from their page but the song here “Intro Demo” is a good introduction to their sound.
As well as this we have 2 more exclusive tracks from Synkro’s label mate at Midset, Indigo. After giving us 3 exclusives earlier on in the year when he played at The Deaf Institute with Lukid 2 more follow now with Shining Down and What time continuing with his techno influenced, echo chamber dub sound.
Before I sign off for now let me tell you about the latest mix available for download. This is a live set by Dan Nation from the back room of Mint Lounge on the Onra/Martyn show. If you missed it on the night, or weren’t there at all (tut, tut) now is your chance to get your ears around it so click the image below and crank your speakers y’all.

early Feb 12” Release. Digital to follow
MINDSET 002 12″ Narcossist/Logos 12″ Out Now
Available from Boomkat,chemical,Juno,Redeye,BM and all other shops that sell decent vinyl Boomkat review: This is the first release from underground dubstep figure Narcossist, a name you may recognise if you’ve been checking Dusk & Blackdown’s excellent Rinse FM show or checked any of Grievous Angel’s on-point mixes available elsewhere on the net. Narcossist has been lauded for his finely produced rhythms which incorporate the kinky slink patterns of early Zed Bias, El-B or more recently Burial, with a love of Maurizio’s M-Series or the Burial mixes and fresh deep techno from T++ and Dettmann for a blend that positions him in a neat spot of his own. ‘Sunblind’ is a Narcossist classic already, having done the rounds on myspace for some time, it was a logical progression to a vinyl pressing for this crafty blend of auld garage riffs, echo chamber FX and a properly tight 4/4 flex that deserves a spot in every future stepper’s box. ‘Slow’ on the flip displays another side to his programming skills, with constantly shifting 2-step patterns executed to perfection with a warehouse spooked sound design. His remix of Logo’s ‘Frontier Dub’ again switches styles to an irresistable deep and dubby house bump, done Berlin style with sprightly chords and a kinked Detroit flow that show this man is defintiely one to watch.
MINDSET 001 Indigo Out Now // A.Set to Cycle. B.Let it Rain
Now available from Boomkat, Redeye, Juno and independant record stores. Mindset001 digital is now available from digital-tunes.net and addictech.com
Mindset 001: Melancholy dub tech variants from Indigo and Mindset Recordings with a debut release directed towards the fertile middle ground between dubstep, techno and related rhythm science. A-side ‘Set To Cycle’ strikes at a striding 140bpm dub techno pace with offset snares, and sombre dub chords lending a deeper blue atmosphere to a promising track largely influenced by Peverelist, F, or Mala. ‘Let It Rain’ on the flip is an altogether smarter cut, this time taking it’s influences from something a little more complex and electronica debted, with a dipping swing set somewhere between T++ and Toasty. Well set.
