Chicago producer/dj Willy Joy returns to Trouble & Bass with todays release of his “Whispering Woods” single. He’s part of Trouble & Bass Bookings which means that he’s been touring all over North America during the last year, recently dropped an EP on Diploâ€™s Mad Decent imprint + he’s made tons of remixes for the likes of Hostage, Kastle, Treasure Fingers etc!
“Superhuman” is the second track on the EP and it sees Willy provide us with a jacking groove and a bonerattling bass all atop tropical drums to create what feels like an unstoppable dancefloor monster.
Jason over at Nightshifters brings us a live Essential Mix from Scottish producer Hostage. Done when Annie Mac was in Edinburgh last week. And if your banger needs aren’t fulfilled with the mix then feast your ears on this brand new Hostage track “Skin Out”.
Tracklist after the jump.
Scottish producer Hostage just dropped one thunderous EP with “Valhalla” (released by Nightshifters that goes from strength to strength with their releases). Hostage keeps the single going with bass and adds some sprinkles of rave to keep the dancefloor in check, remix duties comes from Chicago house legend Angel Alanis, Chicago b-more hero Rampage then Chrissy Murderbot adds some juke flavour and Mommas Boy finishes the package off with some Dutch house/Euro rave goodness.
Edinburgh producer and Nightshifters affiliate Hostage goes from strength to strength with an absolutely massive output of tracks, remixes and edits. These latest two offerings, “Pirates” and “Rudeboys”, were unleashed on the unsuspecting net via the awesome people over at Discodust (where you’ll also find his aUtOdiDakT remix) yesterday. “Pirates” is full on bassline madness whereas “Rudeboys” is more in the lines of Jamaican dubstep and it’s our favorite of the two.
Jason Forrest (AKA DJ Donna Summer) runs Nightshifters together with the best lady in NYC – Jubilee – and by the looks of this mix they’ll be doing it big in 2009. The mix previews some of the exciting tracks that they’ll release in the near future. Chokeful of goodies, watch out for that Jokers Of The Scene remix at the end…It’s massive!
BONUS: Two essential tracks for your listening pleasure.
“KILLER bass heavy remix for you by Proper Villians. Made for Palms Out Sounds but we wanted to spread the wealth as it’s just too freakin great to be missed!”
“Funny and completely latin sounding bass-rave-salsa number from Scotland. Yeah, we were surprised when he heard it too! HAHA!”
Tracklist for the mix after the jump.
Nightshifters coming through with a brand new track from a Discobelle favorite, Scottish producer Hostage. His track “The New Gun” shows off his ravey b-more style, we’re loving the evil vocals, shuffling drums and the stabbing synths. Check out his recent “Shake It EP” for more of that good stuff.
BONUS: Grab his minimix that he just did for the upcoming US tour:
