Mixes for your weekend

Here are some mixes the Scientists have been listening to recently. These should get your friday started, and we hope you have a great weekend.

Joe Loud - Smoked Out Session 5

Our friend Joe Loud, who also did a great guest mix for our podcast last year has record a brand new episode for his Smoked Out Sessions mixtape series. 97 minutes of deeper drum'n'bass picked and mixed by one of our favourite DJ's in the country at the moment. Check out the previous smoked out sessions from Joe Loud's Mixcloud-page

Dub-One - Scientific Wax Mix 2015

Scientific Wax mix. By Dub-One. Amens. Lots of amens.

Lrusse - Monologues Podcast 23

Ed Bayling is a busy man in the studio with many different names and vibes. He's done dubstep and breaks as I.D., he's working on some badass groovy house tracks as one half of Behling & Simpson (the other half is actually Sam Simpson aka Sam Binga), but he's also doing some sick house tunes by himself as Lrusse. What I like most about his tunes is that there's some grit and rough edges in his sound, and you can hear the background in bass music. Things don't have to be completely perfect, quantized, polished and edited to the max, the imperfections are the things that create the character in the music.
Check this mix, it's 100% his own tunes and collaborations, and there's also a short interview on soundcloud where he describes his music and the way he works.

Sam KDC - Samurai Podcast #27

Sam KDC has recorded the latest episode of Samurai Music Podcast to celebrate the release of his new ep Psychic Dirt. The mix goes somewhere beyond drum'n'bass and is simply dark deep electronic music at 85/170 bpm. Yes.

This weeks new releases: IM:LTD, Samurai Music

Pennygiles & Phil Tangent - Stories Untold / We Don't Talk Anymore [IM:LTD]

Pennygiles and Phil Tangent have a nice little super combo going on here with their newest release on IM:LTD.

The single starts with Pennygiles' 'Stories Untold'. The track starts with some hazy pads and continues with a crunchy bassline. There are no big flips or tricks on it, but it works just as it is. Kind of reminds me of the hypnotic style of Big Bud. If you like the track, also make sure to check out Ebony Queen out on Rubik Records.

The second track is by Phil Tangent and it's also his second release on IM:LTD. 'We Don't Talk Anymore' combines two fairly important things you might find in a dnb track. The tune is a good piece of sound engineering, featuring a really punchy kick drum and a nice floating bassline. This is one of those tracks you can have on repeat for a good while and still keep on rocking.

IMLTD1213 is available as digital download on all good online musical data dealers.

Homemade Weapons - Kintaro EP [Samurai Music]

Here’s an interesting release from Samurai Music. Samurai Music has taken their sound back to the deeper end with this release from the Seattle based Homemade Weapons.

With the five tracks on this EP, Homemade Weapons invite you for a journey through an assassination, a dark alley with someone definitely following you, a battle of swords, to deep nightmares and finally back for some more chasing on the dark alley.

For people madly in love with Japanese art like the style of Hokusai, the release is available as a snow white 12" with an awesome cover art.

NZ024 is out now as a digital download and a 12" vinyl.
