So, a month or so ago I said something about a free EP…well, now I’m delivering! I decided to give these three tunes away in thanks to the fans out there that continue to support me, even through all the genre changes I go through. I feel like I have A.D.D. when it comes to writing music – I just can’t stay focused on one particular genre. Well, these three tunes are no exception. I suppose the word for this style would be ‘Drumstep’ – but all three tunes have moments where it’s running along like a Drum ‘n’ Bass.
I’m not the best when it comes to describing my tunes, but if you’re familiar with my sound, you’ll recognize the unique take I put on them. Slightly influenced by NeuroFunk, Dubstep, Drum ‘n’ Bass, and Glitch, and still retaining a bit of that dark atmosphere I love to use.
Please help support and share this with your friends, blog, facebook pages, and other social media outlets.
You can now grab this release for free on Addictech.com!
Well, the day has finally arrived! My latest EP featuring, some really good remixes by DJ Hidden, +verb, HavocNdeeD, and TZR + Press is out. I’m stoked to finally get this one out, as we had some delays, but pushing forward we managed to get this one loose into the wild!
Big thanks goes out to the guest artists who created some amazing remixes, and of course, to all the fans who’s support continues to motivate me throughout the years.

Although I was late to announce this on my blog yesterday, here is a freebie from Vermin Street for all you music fans out there. It’s called “Good Music is Heart to Find” and is available on their bandcamp page.
This one features tunes from Burnkane, Misk, Bleep Bloop, S.P.E.C.T.R.E., Smokey and Casper, +verb, and Richard Sweat.
BoomBox consists of two versatile producers, DJs, songwriters, multi-instrumentalists and longtime friends Russ Randolph and Zion Rock Godchaux. Together they develop an electronic blend of vintage Rock and Blues made to move dance floors while incorporating their signature Backbeat, Psychedelia and Funky House sounds. Applying a multi-track platform, they are free to create their hybrid style on the fly with a rhythm that moves fans and opens them up to Godchaux and Randolph’s overall vision. Derived from the rich musical history of Muscle Shoals, AL, to the psychedelic rock and underground electronic scenes of the west coast, their unique approach can only be achieved by the blending of sound and culture.
For over a decade, ill-esha has been an integral part of the North American electronic scene. Beginning as a vocalist, she soon added MCing and DJing to her repertoire, creating a dynamic and unique live show which has headlined alongside artists such as Andy C, Klute, Dieselboy, Vibesquad, LTJ Bukem, Tipper, T-Power & De La Soul. She has performed across North America, Europe and Asia; in clubs, at festivals, and even on TV shows on MTV Canada and the CBC.
Born and raised in Los Angeles, ChrisB was immersed in Westcoast flavor since day one. Drawn to music and art from an early age, Chris grew up always having an instrument in his hands. Although new to production, his obsessive musical passion is palpable in the deep and sensual soundscapes he meticulously weaves. Boldly exploring vast melodic realms full of hypnotic textures and a heavy dose of emotionally-resonant driving bass, his high energy live performances never fail to inspire each person in the audience. Unlike many of his contemporaries, he is utterly unafraid to toss aside the crutch of ‘brute-force’ sonic assaults and instead relies only on his brilliant melodic compositions. Chris’s sound reflects a developed musicality not often associated with the bulk of contemporary electronic music.
Happy Thanksgiving to all those that celebrate. ill.Gates is giving away a new free tune to his fans, and I thought I would share the link with you all.
Head over to his website to grab the music: www.illgates.com
Enjoy the rest of the weekend stuffing your face full of food and gaining an extra 10lbs! I know I will!
Fent Plates’ latest from Rob Sparx is sure to please. Broke Feat. Roqqert is a DEEP dubstep tune with enough soul to fill a canyon. Smooth vocals flow alongside a tight drum groove and some serious chest rattling basslines. This is the type of dub I wish was being played out more in my town. The follow up tune, Try To Remember, is no less spectacular than the former. The vocals from Dee are lovely and elegant as the glide along with the soft pads and melodies. If you need a tune for your ‘love makin’ playlist, look no further than Try To Remember.
One solid release from Rob Sparx and I definitely recommend it. Check the clip below of Broke and be sure to pick this one up at the following locations.

Yoseph draws upon influences from all corners of the music spectrum (from Reggaeton to Polka to IDM) and can spin any tale into a fresh, bass driven dancefloor meltdown. 10 years of experience in all sorts of forays have made Yoseph the force he is today. From experiments in rhythm on cassette to his Jungle/IDM catalog as Nvoise, to his toying with pop music formulae and other shenanigans. As Yoseph, the artist has releases on multiple well respected bass music labels, including Monkey Dub Records, Savory Audio and Mambo Records.
The title track of this release, Stardust, starts off with a funky hook of a bassline and stop-on-a-dime beats. After the break, Amens drop from out of nowhere and the souldful union of Old School Jungle with the new school of Dubstep is complete. Ill-Esha’s remix keeps the soul, but substitutes the Amen Breaks for some serious bass manipulation. Tightly programmed filter envelopes test the definition of what you may call a Wobble.
The B-Side of this release, Sugarllama, is every bit as funky and fresh as the flip. Glitches, intricately carved from the salsa rhythms, diced up with fresh beats, sizzling leads and crunchy bass make this tune a midtempo bass fiesta.
