Located on a black sand beach at the southern tip of Iceland, Hálsanefshellir Cave is a magical spot. I didn’t think this photo captured it well so I added a gloomy soundtrack to it.
We’re ending off the year strong with a brand new exclusive mix that we just can’t get enough of. It gets going right off the bat and just doesn’t let up. DJ GaZeLL is back with a ferocious blend of dub step, tech step, jungle for a those of us desperate for a healthy dose of thick wobbles and snare rushes, just in time to prep you for your NYE party or drive you straight into the new year.

While less percussive than some prior Alek Biotic works, Eezvor’s minimal techno influence is heard while its driving bass and synth lines provide enough energy for the prime time sets. The Dark Mix provides a more focused, flatter vibe while the Original Mix reveals the melodic, source riff.
Eezvor is my first completed production whose structure was created largely using Native Instruments’ Maschine. This amazing piece of kit combined with great, upgradable software is super fun to use and arrange on. Individual tracks were exported to Cubase (also a first as I’ve previously used Nuendo) where they were processed further and augmented with additional tracks, elements and effects. The final mix was mastered in WaveLab using Universal Audio, TC PowerCore and Waves plugins.
Eezvor is currently shopped around and hope is to have the original wav files available asap. Guest remixes are also in the works. Stay tuned.
Since you really dug the last post featuring Joe Bond’s Continental Breakfast, we’re really psyched to present Joe’s follow up effort: Woosa. Yes, that’s right – another exclusive track, with the machines still red hot from it.
Tech-house fans will hear lots to like here as Woosa is one of those fresh jams that sets a very cool mood in a set and opens a door to a completely new direction. Personally, I’m a huge fan of such versatile tracks and will definitely look to feature Woosa in a set.
You up for it? Woosa up!?
Turn it up to 2011. New releases are in the queue as well as lots previously unreleased material. Thanks for tuning in.
Nastee Stuff is a funky techno jam with a thick bass line, a quality it shares with a few previously covered tracks including Overtone. About 4 minutes into the track the bass riff is stripped down but the beat is augmented with lots of percussion. I’ve contemplated making that break more dominant in the track since it was more along the lines of material I would play when DJing, but ended up preserving the original format of the track.
While the track is over 6 years old, it was never aggressively shopped and therefore never released. So here it goes. Let me know if you want the original (.wav) version and I’ll get you a copy.
By the way, the title is a quote occasionally used by Walt “Clyde” Fraizer when calling Knicks games. If I remember correctly the last Knick to stuff nastily would have to be Latrell Spreewell, so he deserves partial title credit.
A couple of months ago I posted the track Goliath (part 1) which featured a sample from the movie Event Horizon. As promised back then, here’s the sequel, cleverly dubbed Goliath (part 2). Out is the Fishburne sample and in the tribal beats with a dirty bassline. Check it out.
Btw, while this version has no ties to the movie I’m including the photo because, well… because its a really f-ing cool photo. Enjoy.
