Pinch starts new Cold Recordings label

Pinch, head honcho of bristol based dubstep imprint Tectonic, lauched his new vinyl only label called Cold.

Informations are rare, but the name may refer to Pinchs love for dark 4/4 beats and techy influences. According to Resident Advisor he said it’s about „new movements in the ever evolving UK hardcore-continuum taking inspirational vibrations from a long standing heritage that ran through acid house, hardcore, jungle, UK garage, dubstep and beyond“.

The label just released there first 12″ by newcomer Elmono. Two cold 130 bpm rhythms they describe as „Introspective dancefloor cuts for restless minds“.

Next to that Pinch delivers a vinyl only mix, showcasing what to expect in the future, from his fresh imprint.

We have to say big up for pushing the vinyl culture, the lovely artwork, the never resting mind of Rob & this lovely mix!

Fake Soundcloud Hero

130423-sc-fake-2 How to Become a SoundCloud Superstar, One Fake Fan at a Time

Fake views, fake plays, fake fans, fake followers and fake friends – the mainstream music industry has long been about „buzz“ over achievement, fame over success, the mere appearance of being everyone’s favorite artist over being the favorite artist of anyone.

Social media has taken the chase for the fumes of fame to a whole new level of bullshit. After washing through the commercial EDM scene (artists buying Facebook fans was exposed by several outfits last summer), faking your popularity for (presumed) profit is now firmly ensconsced in the underground House Music scene.

This is the story of what one of dance music’s fake hit tracks looks like, how much it costs, and why an artist in the tiny community of underground House Music would be willing to juice their numbers in the first place (spoiler: it’s money).

Mala Essential Mix on BBC Radio 1

This is definitely essential! Mala, a dubstep-key-figure from the past to the present, show’s us what’s bass!

For those who don’t know: Mala is one founder of the mighty DMZ label & Clubnight. He was also part of the legendary „Dubstep Warz“ Radio Show by Mary Ann Hobbs, back in 2006. One of the few shows everybody calling himself a dubstephead should know about! And us actually got addicted to dubstep ;-)

He recently started the „SYSTEM“ clubnight with V.i.v.e.k. and released the best selling album „Mala in Cuba“ on Brownswood Recordings.

From the nicest roots tunes up to some serious dmz duplate pressure, this mix covers everything thats essential to the word BASS! Don’t sleep on future history!
