Cyantific - Exclusive Mix

Cyantific - Exclusive Mix

Something very special for you this week in the form an exclusive alternative mix from D&B producer Cyantific.

With his new release on Ram Records, Cyantific shows why he’s been at the top of the D&B game for nearly a decade having made a name for himself as one of Hospital Records’ hottest producers and deadliest DJs.

This new mix for samurai shows a different side to the Cyantific sound and features the calypso rhythms of Jamie XX alongside house cuts from Julio Bashmore and Oliver $ and a healthy dose of Photek, Breakage and DJ Shadow for good measure.

We think this will be a mix you'll be playing again and again for some time to come.

Desyn Masiello presents Faciendo Radio

Introducing a new regular show from Faciendo. They are a tribe of "musical shamans" and "mix scientists", working together to inspire, educate and spread love through the air waves. The group's primary focus is a series of mix compilation CDs, crossing many genres of electronic music, but each with the same goal: to represent the true "art" of a DJ mix, where all the pieces of the mix fit together in absolute harmony, and a truly new experience is created from the union of the tracks.

Alongside this, Faciendo Radio, their bi-weekly show, serves as a platform to showcase the latest sounds around the world, and also give the listener a glance into the past from the group’s musical history of timeless gems and forgotten classics. The format of the show may alternate each episode: from the club-oriented, where you’ll hear the house and techno they’re renowned for, to the more eclectic, airing the freshest in downtempo, disco, dubstep, drum n bass and whatever else you can name that touches the heart and mind.

Going from strength to strength, the work these guys have put into the scene is well recognised around the world and has led to outstanding collaborations with the likes of Daddy Freddy (Ragga Twins), Kool Keith (Ultramagnetic MCs/Dr. Octagon etc.), Diane Charlemange (Timeless/Metalheadz etc.), Tenor Fly and more. They also have a fresh sample CD range in the shops called Monster Sounds, their d&b label called 777, forthcoming releases on their 4/4 oriented alias of Black Noise, and they are also finishing off their 7th Aquasky album.. phew!

Rebel Butterfly presents Mondkopf 'Day of Anger' EP release special

Rebel Butterfly presents Mondkopf 'Day of Anger' EP release special

A sonic journey to the beautiful darkside, Mondkopf’s ‘Day Of Anger’ EP merges futuristic electronica with classical elements to create a powerful, melodic and slightly gothic work of art.

Defying tradition, in 2009 Mondkopf imposed himself as a French electronic revelation with his debut album ‘Galaxy Of Nowhere’. Critical acclaim included a comparison to Brian Eno by Les Inrocks, as well as artistic parallels to Apparat, Modeselektor and Moderat. He remixed Caribou, The Teenagers, Black Devil Disco Club, Golden Filter, Johnny Cash and picked up the ears of DJs including Agoria, Busy P, Boys Noize and James Zabiela in the process… His ‘Galaxy of Nowhere’ Live show also began to tour… voted in the top five live shows of 2010 by Tsugi Magazine in France.

In 2011, and at still only 24, Mondkopf’s second album ‘Rising Doom’ is ready. Inspired by post-punk, black metal, and with the music of Aphex Twin and Autechre always in his head, the album displays an energy du force like no other. Merging sound and vision, he has also collaborated with multimedia design agency, Trafik, to conceive a Live show experience for both the ears and eyes; black and white tension immerses, igniting the sensation of rave parties, exorcism and a mystical experience…

Mondkopf’s second album ‘Rising Doom’, which includes ‘Day Of Anger’, is due for release September 2011. ‘Day Of Anger’ EP is out now - video: www.youtube.com/watch?v=u19wOhrIk64

In a day and age when all DJs seem to also be producers, actors, singers, or pretty much anything that doesn’t actually involve putting a needle to a record, it’s nice to know that guys like Jackmaster still exist. A genuine home-grown hero, Jack Revill’s rise to fame is about as storybook perfect as is possible. A chance hearing of Model 500’s ‘The Chase’ whilst mopping floors in Glasgow’s legendary Rub-A-Dub record shop opened his eyes to the possibilities of electronic music outside of the chart house he was listening to. Recruiting like-minded friends, he got involved in the city’s vibrant club scene eventually starting the long running Numbers night. Taking their cue from the irreverent selections of the legendary Club 69, the crew went on to form the Wireblock, Dress 2 Sweat and Stuff Records’ imprints, releasing tracks from the likes of Hudson Mohawke and Rustie. As their popularity started snowballing, they made the decision last year to combine forces across the Glasgow scene and form the Numbers collective which has steadily been shaping its post-dubstep sound with a number of landmark releases as well as amassing column inches. Jackmaster has led the charge, spreading their unashamedly full-on party sound to dance floors all over the world and snatching DJ Magazine’s Breakthrough DJ of 2010 award in the process. FABRICLIVE now proudly presents its 57th release with a peek into the Glaswegian mischief-maker’s eclectic record bags.

“The first time I played Fabric was in room 3 with Rustie, Hudson Mohawke, and Dom from LuckyMe. It was like a mini Glasgow invasion of Farringdon. Shortly afterwards Tom promoted me to Room 1 and pretty much since then we've been doing regular Numbers nights too. I reckon my favourite Fabric night yet was when we brought Todd Edwards over in January 2010. That was such a fucking big night. The place was as packed as I've seen it and people were just going crazy all night long right up till 6am. I ended up travelling for something like 10 hours to get there because of severe snow but it was so worth it. Eventually we made it to Fabric with minutes to spare and as soon as we walked in the door you could feel it was gonna be a special one. I played the last slot while Todd Edwards gave out glow sticks in the shape of crucifixes and signed autographs with bible scripture quotations.”

The mix itself brings a taste of the relentless nature of the Numbers dancefloor, where the parties are fast, frantic and intense. With a tracklist running to almost 30 tracks in just 70 minutes, they come short and sharp, running the whole gamut of what’s considered ‘party music’, from Detroit techno classics to the orphaned children of garage, dubstep and grime, the only thing that stays consistent is the upbeat tempo. Kicking things off with a slice of classic disco from The Fantastic Aleems, we head straight into classic ‘hands in the air’ territory with the Inner City anthem ‘Big Fun’. For someone who constantly talks up his love for 90s dance classics, or the music that most resonates from his childhood, it’s no surprise to hear Kim English’s soaring vocals on the proto-garage ‘Nite Life’ emerge out of the robot funk of Model 500. There’s a nod to Jamaica and in turn their grime compatriots down south, with an MC name checking the whole crew on the unreleased calypso bounce of Geiom’s ‘2 4 6’ which swiftly rolls along taking in melodic breakbeat, the staccato stabs of acid yearning in ‘The Sun Can’t Compare’ and Addison Groove’s juke-influenced groove. The middle section is the peak time, full strobe moment presented as a kind of rave sandwich, with the comedy Miami Bass of Splack Pack as the x-rated bread while Mad Mike brings an unusually sensitive side with a cut of euophoric piano house and a Wookie remix leading into the Todd Terry jacker ‘Can You Feel It?’. It’s the sound of 90s rave as channeled through the mind of someone who grew up in the online world with access to all the disparate strands of hardcore influenced music, from the neo-NRG of Fix to frenetic ghetto tech, weaving all the influences into each other with a single-minded purpose, for people to be able to dance without feeling guilty about enjoying moments of unexpected nostalgia. The mix ends with a trio of cuts with AFX’s unsettling acid squelch melded into the jerky vocal patterns from Skepta’s ‘Doin’ It Again’ and finishing up on a high note with that most unexpected of danceable singles, the track which exposed Radiohead’s unashamed electronic genius, the alienation anthem of ‘Idioteque’.
