Starting off with a brief look at what has come out of Wales in the last year! For all those leaning towards the drum and bass check out kryptix and his Mandaly LP mix a 45 min mix of all original material! Well worth the download! Also check out Jamin records from Cardiff myspace.com/jaminrecords some interesting sounds available to purchase.
You have my brother Optimystik with his original sound that seems to be getting better every time I hear something new. Check out his halfpipe dub made out of sounds from a skate-park more fresh ideas like this please optimystik .
"The clock bell that signals the futuristic and foreboding intro does the perfect job of setting the tone for this masterpiece by Optimystic. Alien sounds accompany a multi-level subbass that progresses the track from a sci-fi soundtrack to a full-fledged techy banger. Better than most tracks out there, the electronic sounds of All Systems come together in a way that is more musical than would be expected from a similar effort. Definitely one for the bag"
All Systems feat. MC Huston is available to download from In Da Jungle Recordings out of Canada.
On the breaks and house check dj alx6 dj sets fusing the techy side of electro house with heavy breaks check his myspace for more info and booking also check his butt ugly breakz track full respect. If you like a laugh check out suggestion boy who manage to bring together clever production with good humor but don't be fooled. When I heard them dj live it was well thought out techno music. Head over to myspace.com/djsuggestionboy for a tickle. It's what they were born to do!
Hip Hop monkees check out the oddog who is putting on many a night under the Jolly Good name with an MC battle coming up and the prize being £50 start licking your lips and get spitting! Thats on 18th january @ the jolly tar. He has a mixtape (Please Take That Off My Turntable )
to download. Check myspace.com/theoddog
Finally on the instrumental/experimental side you have the one like Tasks and Duties(phono) who always makes me smile . He is giving away his album "Gross Blank Point" for free so get over there and start downloading.
So I hope this wets your appetite and remember if you think I need to mention someone be it yourself or a close/far away friend contact me @
