As an OG member of London's notorious Metalheadz crew, DJ Loxy, has been championing Drum & Bass since it's heyday in the 90's. Known for his ninja like dexterity and efficiency as well as his machine-like consistency in wrecking dance floors, Loxy has attained near mythical status as a DJ within D&B circles.
Admittedly, D&B has bored the shit out of me for years and as such I've not paid much attention to it for sometime. But, I came across this podcast- the third in a series done in conjunction between his Cylon and Xtinction Labels- and I have to say, it's pretty dope!
It's on a hypnotic, minimal tip- in a similar vein as Plastikman or Ricardo Villalobos or Basic Channel,but the rhythms are more fractured. Full of brittle drum programming and percussive clicks and pops which frame pristine melodies, atmospheric washes of synthesizer and cavernous technoid bass.
Though no official monker exists this yet, I'm liking Micro-Bass as it seems to sum up the vibe quite nicely.
Here I basically just write about whatever I'm into at the moment. Mostly it's music, but also some books and a good political rant every now and then, circumstances warranting. I'll post links to audio I think is worth downloading, but basically, it's just self-indulgence in the typical fashion of web 2.0 user generated content. This is blogging after all, a bare minimum amount of narcissism is implied, is it not?
If you've taken the time to read all of this you may as well check out some of my posts. And if you've gotten something from this blog or you think my writing sucks, I'm full of shit, etc.- why not reply or contact me at: firstname.lastname@example.org? I would sincerely love to hear from you, whoever you are...
