Although the guy is not even dead, I found someone else with the same atmosphere, skills and sounds after listening to Triffkas. Blossom is a Polish artist represented by Project Mooncircle these days. His LP titled “Blue Balloons” is a work of art. Very rich and complex to say the least with all its strings, beats and bases. If you can overcome the feeling of listening to Bonobo, you will find Blossom in your top ten artists soon enough. Just try it and prove me wrong if you can. (It was free to download a while ago, maybe you can find a link that still has it for free)

…I woke up and realized that the first EP of mononome was not enough. And I think all music addicts felt the same way. Now you can rest a bit easier as the sampling master dropped his second EP at Dusted Wax Kingdom, titled “The Secret Melody”. All the great favourites from his souncloud page are included. He keeps amazing us with dirty lo-fi sounds nobody else can create. Hope he will stay this way Forever… and will not be Wasted.

Dokkerman and The Trukeying Fellaz has just released their new album titled Mongoose. The album is heavily influenced by late sixties old school funk sounds and the 9 piece band gives you a very dusty, raw kind of funk that you can’t pass on. Whether you like slow funk , something bass heavy, or fast grooves, click on the picture and download the album for free! Big up Hungary! By the way, your favourite Hungarian netlabel, Budabeats is responsible for releasing the album for free.   NOTE: The soundcloud set is not the same as the free album behind the picture!

Members: Zimon Péter (drums), Michelberger Tamás (organ), Jenei Miklós (bass), Sághy Bálint (guitar), Bada Emőke (MC), Nagy Illés (percussion, MC), El Balogh Krisztián (percussion), Lior Paz (saxophone) és Tóth Bence (trumpet)

 

Here’s this guy whose name speaks well of himself. And here’s his 7-track Neckbreakers beat tape, which is also kind of a fitting title. He’s bringing beats to a level, where you can not stop nodding, probably will break your neck if you get addicted to this release. Have a listen and try not to break your neck so you can listen to more fine beats from The Expert in the future. Free download behind the pic, as always!

That’s how your world turns after you press play on a new 21-track release titled Basement Skylights from Anitek, Tab, A.U.R.C. and Hernan Faraci. The genre is all around the place which is really a compliment here… overchilled sounds, turntablism, dubbish vibes, trip hop tunes and hip hop beats can all be found among the meticulously created pieces. I can’t even choose a personal favourite, they are so good, so I will link the whole set instead. Free download available behind the picture as always. Make sure you check this one out, it would be a shame to miss it… or as the man Anitek himself put it “A MUST LISTEN abstract hiphop, experimental psychedelicness.”

A Perfect Evening

Ok, this might be unusal on the blog but I have to write about this experience we shared yesterday. We received a link from Shoto (from Dusted Wax Kingdom) saying that he will perform live in a club in Sofia. The club had a camera set up and live feed was available from 9pm EET, which was 8 pm my time.

So I tuned in and started commenting on the link on facebook whenever something great was spinning or Shoto made a comment. And then the evening really started… We had a couple of people from the DWK family in the Chat Room on facebook just listening to Shoto killin’ it in basically every genre possible from downtempo, trip hop through jazzy instrumental hip hop, all the way to swing and electro or golden age rap tracks.

We were all awed by the great choices and praised him in the chat room and commented on the link as he could only see facebook on his iphone. Meanwhile we (VPD, Jenova 7, Radina, Esbe, Impuls, Revolted Child) kept chatting about music, the industry, memories, influences and all things that came to mind… Shoto just kept amazing us with beats that we all loved and were inspired by. The atmosphere was so vivid we all agreed that it would only be better if we could all be in that club sipping drinks and patting Shoto on the back and cheering him on, telling him never to stop. He kept updating us with what a track was if we did not know them, gave a heads up if a great dedication was coming and we just felt we want the night never to end.

At about 2:30 pm which was 3:30 in Sofia, Shoto said he’ll spin 3 more “for the road” and he did… he finished with bugseed, Kero One and Pete Philly & Prequisite…

I just wanted to say thank you to all involved, especially Shoto for the awesome beats and the club for having the live feed available. Also for VPD for inviting me into the group on facebook a while ago. I met epic artists full of love and support. It was truly a terrific experience and I am grateful that I can live in a time when a guy from Russia, another one from the US and me from Hungary can listen and watch someone perform live in Sofia while sharing our thoughts on a common channel.

Some of the artists / tracks I remember Shoto playing just to give you a sense of what a great set it was :
 GDaddie, bugseed, Nujabes, Flevans, Smoke City, Pete Rock & CL Smooth, Badmarsh & Shri, Thievery Corporation, Waldeck, Flevans, KRS One, Skee-Lo and for me the highlight of the night was Jazzhole by Free the Robots.

All in all, it was one of the best experiences of my life and I wish I could just push repeat. I almost forgot… the feed usually records what’s on the camera, hopefully it did just that yesterday as well.

Here’s a little taste of how Shoto aka Stone Skipper rolls…

This guy from the Dusted Wax family keeps on bringing amazing stuff one after the other… Perfect sampling and a vibe that surely fits the title of the track. Check out Beats & Hypnotism. It’s just… beautiful and hypnotic.

This mix was made on one of my darker days, reminiscing about the past. Everybody has something that haunts them, so maybe these magnificently orchestrated masterpieces will tell you something just like they did to me. The mix includes tracks from such acclaimed groups as The Cinematic Orchestra and Hidden Orchestra, great producers like Amon Tobin, Long Arm, Kovacs, Coldcut or Skalpel.  Tune into the Dark Side of Jazz.

We want Time Travel! When do we want it? It’s irrelevant… Well in this case it’s not. Cause if you want to time travel, today is the day. Jenova 7 and Mr. Moods teamed up for a new release, titled Time Travelers. We have been waiting patiently and the time has come… Check the DWK site today for the ultimate chillout. Free download.

Third time’s the charm. So the last mix for today is my very own selection of Dusted Wax Kingdom‘s 051-100. It was very hard to choose from 506 tracks. Everything the netlabel publishes is golden, so had a rough time with choosing the right ones. Well, BPMs and keys helped a lot and I hope everybody will enjoy this little trip to the Kingdoms again. Spread the word, share the love and enjoy Dope Wax Knowledge!
