Cache here. Professional lurker, amateur producer and occasional clown.
Got a little crew down here in HoustonTX (US) producing Bass music. Manly Step, Trap and Future Beats under the Electro and Bass elements, usually between 140 and 165BPM.
Digging on the Never Say Die sound on Mondays and while stuck in traffic, and most stuff that Dub Rebellion can throw my way. I really like artists that stretch or ignore genre lines, which I know is a hot button for a lot of you hedz out there, but why lay a bunch of purist doctrine out during my intro knowing you’ll see thru it eventually anyway.
Was a hardcore Junglist from the late 90s, with some Garage and 2Step here and there as Drum & Bass became more organized, landing in the Darker Tech Step and Dub side of Drum & Bass as my core styles from 2000-2006.
Our crew still pops out the occasional Drum & Bass tune, mainly for nostalgia, but (with the exception of a Nuskool Jump-Up track) running more modern Bass music synths and organic FX and Atmos.
I’m pretty open minded when it comes to what I mix, following along with GTA’s #DTG compass, with the primary rule that the tracks either keep it creepy, or creep it fleeky.
I’ve bounced in and out of here many times over the last couple of years, as my crew’s tracks closed in on being closer to market ready, to sample other amateur producers and make sure I wasn’t going to completely embarrass myself by posting too early. (which would’ve definitely happened otherwise)
I think we’re evolved enough in our productions to hopefully strike accord among some of you fine peeples in regards to the thankless obsession of trying to push the limits of the common, with the lofty hopes that one day I can say I made an dent in the movement in some way.
ups my jigs, and weirdemup,
