Mole – Fight EP [T3K Extended]

28 11 2014

T3K’s “Extended” imprint return with a tidy little EP from Mole. Turn Up The Bass and Fight both deliver chunky neurofunk goodness worthy of the dancefloor, but for me this one is all about We Havin Fun‘s swung half-step beats; neuro bass at a less frantic pace. Check out the clips below and grab this one from your favourite digital store now.

Jungle Ballad EP [Fokuz Recordings]

28 11 2014

The latest EP from Fokuz features another fine selection of melodic liquid rollers, with tracks from BCee, RoyGreen & Protone and Rowpieces all gracing the release. The Spearhead boss gets the A side, with his customarily rich sound in full effect on the smooth, laid back Breath In.

Over on the flip RoyGreen & Protone bring us a jazzy ode to precipitation, while Rowpieces showcases his finest break chopping skills on Jungle Ballad; no prizes for guessing the influence he might be drawing on for this one. Last but not least, digital buyers are treated to a nice bonus in the form of Renaisance, with RoyGreen and Protone going slightly off piste with a selection of unusual FX and atmospheres set to another crisp, rolling beat.

All in all another fine Fokuz release! Check out the clips below and grab this on vinyl or digital from your favourite store now!

Psidream & Pacific – The Edge [Nightfall Recordings]

27 11 2014

Canadian scene stalwarts Psidream & Pacific bring us the latest selection of neurofunk tearers via their own Nightfall imprint, and as you’d expect the beats are big and bad! All six tracks are well worthy of your attention but for me the highlights came on Not The Future and Chain Breaker. Check out the clips and make up your own mind – this one’s available at all good digital stores now!

Classic Track: Mindscape & Jade – Unpleasant Surprise

27 11 2014


Today’s classic track comes from what some see as the golden era of tech/neuro D&B and harks back to a techno-influenced side of the sound which is seldom heard these days. Providing the flip to Black Sun Empire’s Crash Bunny, Mindscape & Jade’s Unpleasant Surprise builds things nicely with rolling breaks and an acid synth line before dropping into an absolutely tearing reese bassline in the second half the verse. This one is a sure-fire dancefloor slayer!

Tokyo Prose – Continued Presence [Samurai Music]

27 11 2014

It’s not often we love an album so much that we blog it twice, but Tokyo Prose’s debut for Samurai Music is not just any album. Presence has been on rotation here at Dojo HQ pretty steadily since it’s release earlier this year, and being fans of vinyl we were excited to see more of the label’s tracks getting a wax release. Continued Presence sees four more of Sam’s favourites from the album being committed to a beautiful blue and white disc, and you get a free digital bonus in the form of My Soul. Check that out below and head to the Samurai Store to pre-order the 12″ now.

EP.4 [Blind Music]

26 11 2014

Blind Music continue their anonymouse musical experiment with their fourth release, this time taking things in a techier direction. BLND#11 serves up a satisfying grimey dark roller, while BLND#12 experiments with a more wonky, acid-infused sound. BLND#13 rounds things off with another rolling tech damager, sure to work a few dancefloors! Check out the sounds below and grab this from Bandcamp now.

Phase – Do Not Look Back EP [Fokuz Recordings]

25 11 2014

Fokuz return with another great release, this time from Belgian producer Phase. A-side Our Love serves up a pleasant (if predictable) slice of rolling liquid funk featuring the vocal talents of La Meduza, but Don’t Look Back on the flip is the real star of the show.

Jazzy elements, twinkling FX, dynamic strings and perfectly placed piano all combine into beautiful composition, and the contrast between the relatively rugged beats and bass and the soft, melodic elements really makes the track stand out. Check out the clips below and grab this from all good digital stores from November 24th.
