/MUSIC VIDEO: BENGA – I WILL NEVER CHANGE

UK dubstep heavy-weight and a central part of the original generation, Benga released a track a while ago titled “I Will Never Change” (in a awesomely blatant assertion of I-don’t-give-a-fuckery in the face of bass music’s latest trends and evolutions). As with all music genres and categories, bass music has grown far-extending branches and combined with all sorts of other things, resulting on the one hand in its inevitable popification; and on the other in its heavyfication. Although Benga has experimented and included evolutions and experiments in his music, producing genre-breaking tracks such as “Electro West” (with fellow dubstep father Skream) this track is simply his testament to the fact that there is still a huge spot for the original generation sound of bass music.

Benga straight up disregards new moves to lighten and popularise the sound by the pop influence, and the attempts at trying to make the sound heavier and more extreme. Keeping true to the original elements of the genre, the track is complemented by an awesome music video, produced by Liz Kessler and directed by London studio Us.

/TRACK: MISTER SIX – MISO

A long-time personal favourite, British producer Mister Six (Joe Myers) never disappoints. His latest batch of sounds, promo’d in his 2012 Preview, are fresh – as in, one week fresh, and looking to be released this year. Keeping to his classic style, but bringing in new elements, such as an electro-ish feel, glitch-like synths and build-ups which haven’t featured in his work yet, brings a new layer to his vibe without compromising the reasons his stuff was so beautiful to listen to in the first place.

Miso is a great track, and has been put up for free download, so I suggest you grab it quickly, before it expires.

Here’s the aforementioned 2012 Preview:

And two bonus fresh tracks:

Alpha Male:

Profligacy:

So keep your ears out for more cool stuff coming from this cat, and hopefully a soon release of these (and maybe more?) awesome tracks.

/PRODUCER: DAN CRYSTALIS

Part-time Joburg local producer Dan Crystalis is pretty much unknown. His work is what today’s hipsters like to term “underground”, and to some extent, this can be considered a good thing. The thing about his sounds is that they are the kind which you wish to keep to yourself and not share with anyone. Mixing elements and features from downtempo, lounge, dubstep, post-dubstep and glitch, this dude makes his own unique style. While he is still rather young at producing, the evolution from one track to another and technical progression is obvious.

Anyhow, here are three of his tracks for you to hear for yourself, all with free downloads
