Disc Breaks with Llupa - 136 - ft. Stylus Rex - 30th September 2010


After and heavy dose of the psy tech on last weeks guest mix, this week we head down the tech groove with Stylus Rex! This is a mix that really showcases Stylus Rex's unique sound that swings between tech stomp and funk groove, make sure you're tuned in



Stylus Rex
With a background playing live drums for bands coupled with studio sessions with producers like Youth (Killing Joke), JDS, Adam F, & Dan Carey (Kylie)… Stylus Rex is hooked on beat construction & production. Since the first self-pressed vinyl BOOMSTICK release in 2005 which was picked up by Hiedi Van Amstell to sell through PHONICA & Ray Vinyl through VINYL ADDICTION, the Stylus Rex sound had come a long way.

Releases on PUNK FUNK, RE:CONNECT, CONTROL BREAKS, BRONZERAT, BIJOUBEATS & 5 singles so far on Ground Level Records (Serious Wobble, Cops On Coke, Surge, Spangle Wagon, & now Volta) have all pushed to move the underground bass and beats sound forward.

Disc Breaks with Llupa - 135 - ft. Hedflux - 23rd September 2010


Back to the guest mixes this week and this week is the mighty Hedlfux! I've been a fan of Hedlfux's sound since Music is My Weapon hit on Sinister a couple of years back, he's got such a unique sound and his attention to detail in his tunes is amazing. Even better news is that he's touring Oz in late January next year, so if you're liking the sounds of Hedflux make sure you're tuning in later today and if you're here in Oz - tour dates will be confirmed soon



Hedflux
Since exploding onto the scene with his seminal d├ębut track "Music is My Weapon", Steve Young aka Hedflux has firmly established a fresh and distinctive flavour of psychedelic tech-funk. Crafting together elements from breaks, techno, and psytrance, the result is a genre-bending fusion of deep driving bass grooves, twisted glitchy noodles and resonant synth sorcery.

Following the success of his early releases on Sinister and Breakin' Even Records, Steve joined Broken Robot Records in early 2009 and enjoyed a year of increasingly high profile gigs at festivals such as Glade, Waveform, NewFoundLand and iBreaks, as well as headlining at numerous club nights across the UK and Europe. Carving out a unique sound between the psychedelic trance and breakbeat genres, Hedflux has lined up along side some of the artists that have inspired him the most; artists such as Shpongle, Elite Force, Eat Static, Far Too Loud and Headroom.

Taking an increasingly refined and disciplined approach to his productions and DJ sets, the rewards continue to manifest in abundance. In the first quarter of 2010 Hedflux has graced the decks of London's premier super-club Matter, and delivered a blistering remix for the mighty Lot49 Records. Recent performances in Saint Petersburg, Prague, Zagreb and Amsterdam, have established and strengthened the demand for this exciting new sound across the globe.

April 2010 saw the release of "Mindcell" which shot straight to the number 1 spot on the Beatport breaks chart then slowly but surely climbed up the global top 100 - a very rare occurrence for a breaks track. The track stayed at #1 for three weeks, and remained in the top 5 for three months. This, combined with the huge amount of buzz in radio, magazines and the blogosphere, further established Hedflux as a serious player in the electronic dance music scene.

Now working professionally as a music producer, deejay and sound designer, Steve's dedication to quality music and performance is stronger than ever. In the second half of 2010, expect to hear a string of releases on Broken Robot, Lot49 and U&A recordings, with much more in the pipeline for 2011.

Cheers to Hedflux for the massive mix, that went down very well! Lots of new stuff from me, it wasn't my tightest show ever, but hopefully the tunes make up for it ;) Don't forget you can catch Hedflux live in Oz late January.

Diistortiion - Taken (Llupa's Liberation Remix) - Out now!

Hey guys,

My remix of Diistortiion's massive tune 'Taken' is out today on Ridiculoud Records :D I'm hugely happy with how this one turned out, big respect to Diistortiion, Ridiculoud and Ghettface.

Preview below and you can buy it here - Diistortiion - Taken (Llupa's Liberation Remix) on Beatport

Diistortiion - 'Taken' with remixes from Llupa and Ghettface - Ridiculoud Records

Part two of DiiSTORTiiON's debut with Ridiculoud is a dark, driving, and floor-burning original. 'Taken' employs a fierce bassline that drives the track with trippy synths and a haunting vocal sample. On the first remix, Ghettface returns once again with big drums, screaming synths, and high powered edits - this one is for those peaktime moments! Finally, Llupa joins the Ridiculoud roster with an epic, rolling progressive masterpiece for the last remix. Crafting his own melody to complement the dark atmosphere of the original, this one is the perfect beginning for any set!

Diistortiion - Taken (Llupa's Liberation Remix) PREVIEW by Llupa

Feedback:

Mr. No Hands (Mixmag) - “The Ghettface remix is slammmmin!”

Daniella Downs (Dead Famous) - “Llupa is like my Australian bastard stepchild. He's come along leaps and bounds over the years, and while he's still hit or miss sometimes, it's generally a hit, and I think he continues to get better and better.”

Sam Hell (Broken Robot/Mofo) - “Another corker of a release for you guys. Love the original, really reminds me of early Dylan Rhymes stuff! Nice work!”

Duane Barry (Digital Sensation UK) - “What can I say, I love both the remixes. The Ghettface remix is trademark with its classic twisted synths, and I love Llupa's deep, more progressive take with its spacey synths and solid groove. Full support from me!”

Triple Agent (Broken Robot) - “Wicked release! All three tunes are top, but my favorite of the bunch is the Ghettface remix.”

Plaza De Funk (West Records/Brighton Breaks) - “Liking the original mix!”

Home Alone (Dead Famous/Ridiculoud) - “Awesome release. Really liking the original and the remixes. Not a big fan of the vocal sample, but it still works well. My pick is Llupa's remix - superb!”

LuQas (Dead Famous) - “All three mixes are cool. Hard to pick a fave, but might have to plump for the Ghettface as I'm not 100% convinced by the riff used in the other two.”

Lee Martin (Dusted Breaks) - “Llupa remix all the way here!! Full Support.”

Kickflip (Breakin Even) - “Distorted rocky vibes of the Ghettface remix doing it here!”

Karton (Sound Of Habib) - “Really like what Llupa has done here - nice package all round.”

Steve Maccabe (VIM) - “The Llupa remix is my favorite of the three and the one I would most likely play out. But both the original and Ghettface remix are banging tracks as well. Great bassline in the original! Really good package again from your label, great stuff.”
Mobius (Ape Music) - “The original mix is my favorite of the three here, reminds me of the good old days of labels like Lot49. Llupa’s remix is quite a nice, chilled take on the tune as well.”

Bill Vega (Downbeat/Badbwoy Bass) - “Going with the Ghettface remix, excellent stuff. Great film Taken!! Liking Llupa’s remix and the original also, but Ghettface tops the three in my opinion - 8/10”

EK (Dead Famous) - “Liking Llupa's remix and what he has done with it.”

Retroid (Morphosis) - “Llupa’s remix is my pick but nice release overall!”

Vital Substance (Breakin Even) - “I’m all over the Llupa remix...diggin the progressive feel and nice deep bass.”

Far Too Loud (Funkatech) - “Llupa’s remix has a really nice groove to it. A bit proggy for a lot of my sets these days, but definitely one to keep in the wallet.”

Burjuy (Breaks Review Show) - “This release is AWESOME!!!!”

Yreane (XSSR) - “Nice release. Really feeling the Ghettface remix. Support!”

Disc Breaks with Llupa - 132 - ft. Karton - 2nd September 2010


This week on the Disc Breaks show I'm very pleased to bring you the biggest breakbeat act to come out of Australia in the last couple of years - Karton. I was lucky enough to interview Paul Beohm, one half of Karton, for NSB Radio and I'll be playing that interview in full, talking about about how the guys met, how they work together and the release of their first full length album 'For All Seasons' coming very soon on Sound Of Habib. Following the interview I'll be playing their latest promo mix for the last hour, which is chock full of their new stuff.

If you're a fan of the show, chances are you're a fan of Karton, so this show is one not to be missed.



Karton

"Karton are fast becoming the new Hybrid. No scrub that, they're already there" - iDJ Magazine (January 2010)

As genres have risen only to fall, production duo Karton have developed and refined their own unique sound, which – while grounded by their love for all things breakbeat – is never limited by the constraints any single style of music provides. The variation in their production work and club sets illustrates that Karton don’t simply follow the crowd but rather craft a distinctive style as they continue to push their sound to new levels.

The duo have released numerous singles and remixes across the globe which have received club and radio support from the world’s top DJs and radio stations, including BBC Radio1, KissFM and Triple J. Karton have recently been nominated in the 'Breakthrough Producer' category for Breakspoll, the International Breakbeat Awards.

Karton’s first full-length studio album is now finished. Due to be released in the second half of 2010, ‘For All Seasons’ showcases the duo’s musical exploits for the dance floor and beyond.
