Drum & Bass MegaRave @ MohawkBar, Mannheim (Wegbeschreibung)

Der erste Drum & Bass MegaRave war so unfassbar erfolgreich, dass eine zweite Party stattfindet. Ihr wisst, was das heißt – es geht exakt da weiter, wo es im Oktober begann: Tolle UK-Headliner, die fett Leute ziehen, langweilige Resident-DJs, die keiner hören will, und ja nicht zuviel Anspruch! Auf die Art wird am inoffiziellen dritten [zensiert]-Feiertag mit korrekten Halalbeats uffgeBASSt, denn für diese Veranstaltung konnten wir auch wieder einige beliebte Artists aus UK verpflichten, die jedex/er/inne(r)n ein Begriff sein dürften, der/ie/as schonmal mit Drum & Bass in Berührung kam:

Jonny Fleiß (Repressant UK) with the vocal talents of MC Skibbadiddeldu (Longdone UK)

Mistafishy (Pre-Recordings) back to back with Canny Can (Mixin Blind)

Alle dreieinhalb kommen, wie viele DnB-Headliner, aus Unterkrundingen (Verbandsgemeinde Dorfhausen) und rocken dort fettestens die Szene. MC Skibbadiddeldu ist seit so vielen Jahren eine Legende, dass man ihr kaum Glauben schenken kann. Auch Jonny Fleiß ist so oldschool wie King Tubbys Vater und hat schon 120 Singles und 10 Alben auf Null Recycle und vielen anderen Labels herausgebracht. Sein Sound kann und wird nie alt werden, denn sein konterkomplexer Simplizismus bleibt einfach unkopierbar.
Jungkollege Mistafishy ist der intellektuell fähigste und politisch korrekteste DJ auf Gottes Erden, deswegen gewinnt er auch alljährlich sämtliche Turntablism-Competitions weltweit. Wer sein Promofoto kennt, weiß im Grunde alles über ihn. Und zu Canny Can muss ebenfalls nicht viel gesagt werden, weil seine Schaffenstätigkeit bereits in dieser Video-Dokumentation ausführlich gewürdigt und für die Sach-, Fach- und Nachwelten festgehalten wurde. Abschließend sei nur noch erwähnt, dass alle diese Headliner über kreative Grenzen zwischen Genres gehen wie normale Leute über Zebrastreifen.

Außerdem, wie immer unter “ferner liefen”, ein paar nichtsnutzige Resident-DJs:

Budoka (Tilt-Recordings, Future-Music, Silbarueckenbeatz)
…kennt keiner und ist auch egal, weil er eh nur am Anfang auflegt, bevor die Headliner kommen.
Special Skills: Spongo vom Dorf, baut beschissene Tunes und hat sowieso gar keinen Plan von Musik

Timeout (Wicked Headz)
…hat den Veranstalter solange zugelabert, bis der genervt und aus Versehen “ja” gesagt hat.
Special Skills: Drückt sich heimlich vor jeder Arbeit, scheut Lerneffekte wie Katzen das Wasser

DJ Mix (5000)
…darf nur deshalb ein paar Tunes spielen, weil er die Schwester des Veranstalters kennt.
Special Skills: Selektion so nichtssagend wie der Name, jeder zweite Übergang bös vermasselt

Beginn: 23 Uhr
Eintritt: 6 Euro

Basslabor #7.

Wir verwenden wieder das kürzlich gefundene Optimal-Setup mit den 15″ Bässen und neuen Tops von DKA, wie üblich in Verbindung mit dezenter Beleuchtung, fairen Getränkepreisen (Bier 2,50 Euro), gratis Mineralwasser und der berühmten Obstkiste, lehnen Gruppenzwang und DnB-Standard-MCs weiterhin ab, frönen stattdessen dem Gourmet-Sound, erstreben weitere Verfeinerungen in den Details und freuen uns auf die DJ-Speisekarte:

Nogata aus Dortmund hat sich im Ruhrgebiet und darüber hinaus mit ihren DJ-Skills ein solides Standing in der deutschen Drum & Bass-Szene erarbeitet. Außerdem erschließt sie sich auch Dubstep & Dazwischenliegendes aktiv und spielt mit Lomax zusammen live auf Partys. In Mannheim hat sie zuletzt im Jahr 2011 Drum & Bass aufgelegt.
Trotz vieler Bookings, Residencies und mehreren eigenen Partyreihen liefert sie regelmäßg auch Mixes ab und administriert nebenher noch das Spektrum-Forum.

DJ Malice (aka Manhigh O) von der Phishmaol Crew aus Darmstadt hat seine Skills bereits mehrfach auf Basslabor-Partys unter Beweis gestellt und bedarf hier keiner weiteren Einführung. wird entgegen der Ankündigung nicht auflegen, sondern stellt freundlicherweise seinen Slot dem am 19.01. ausgefallenen Budoka zur Verfügung. Das Set von DJ Malice wird auf einer der kommenden Partys nachgeholt.

Budoka “stammt aus dem Schoß der traditionsreichen Phishmaol Crew in Darmstadt. Er ist ein verdienter Musiker, Producer, DJ, Promoter, Labelowner und ausgebildeter Tontechniker. Mit seinen Produktionen und Veröffentlichungen auf Labels wie Protogen, Shadybrain, Silbarueckenbeatz, Internet, seinem informalen “early works” 3×3-EP-Album auf T-FREE und den Vinylreleases auf seinem eigenen Label Tilt-Recordings hat er sich internetional Respekt erarbeitet und in zahlreichen Clubs in Europa aufgelegt. In seiner eigenen Stadt startet er immer wieder ambitionierte Partyprojekte, feilt stetig weiter an seinem Style und seinen Produktionsskills und lebt und atmet Drum & Bass”. (siehe 2012-09-22 und 2012-09-28)

DJ Mix legt sowieso jedesmal auf.

Basslabor #6.

Nach der be-sinn-lichen Zeit (aka Pause im Dezember) zelebrieren wir im Januar Gegenwart und Zukunft. Die Vorsätze im neuen Jahr gleichen den alten, im Großen wie im Kleinen: Wir streben weiterhin ein hohes Niveau an und bemühen uns um Substanz.

Rückblickend auf 2012 lässt sich sagen, dass wir es trotz unvermeidlich auftretender Schwierigkeiten geschafft haben, ohne UK-Bigname-Bookings vier Partys in der Mahuumbar in Mannheim, und daneben eine in den Breidenbach Studios in Heidelberg, mit überdurchschnittlich gutem Sound (dank DKA) auf die Beine zu stellen. Dabei haben wir jedesmal hart gearbeitet, experimentiert und vieles auch spielerisch ausprobiert, haben so manches gelernt, “trotzdem” Spaß gehabt und die Basslabor-Partys als Ort der Begegnung erlebt und die sanfte Berührung durch den Geist der fast vergessenen Rave-Kultur gefühlt.

All das wollen wir weiterhin, und machen deshalb am 19. Januar in der inzwischen leicht renovierten Mahuumbar das nächste Basslabor. Wie immer mit Schalloptimierung, dezenter Raumbeleuchtung, fairen Getränkepreisen (Bier 2,50 Euro), gratis Mineralwasser und Obstkiste, ohne Gruppenzwang oder MCs, aber dafür mit der High-End-PA von DKA (diesmal setzen wir wieder die 15″-Bässe ein). Kurzum: Mit bewährten Methoden, weiteren Verfeinerungen in den Details und erprobten DJs.

DJ Malice hat unter seinem neuen Techno-Alias “Manhigh O” das Techno-Warmup der allerersten Basslabor-Party gespielt, aber er ist kein Anfänger. Er war seit 2001 schon einige Male als DJ Malice mit Drum & Bass in der Tasche in Mannheim, unter anderem im MS Connexion, im Soho und in der alten und der neuen Suite. Er stammt aus Darmstadt, ist wie Budoka Teil der Phishmaol Crew und Tilt-Recordings, mag Technoides und Deepness, produziert eigene Tunes und veranstaltet Partys seit 10 Jahren oder mehr und legt Techno und Drum & Bass mit analogen Medien auf: Vinyl und CD.
(siehe 2012-06-22 und 2012-09-28)

Budoka “stammt aus dem Schoß der traditionsreichen Phishmaol Crew in Darmstadt. Er ist ein verdienter Musiker, Producer, DJ, Promoter, Labelowner und ausgebildeter Tontechniker. Mit seinen Produktionen und Veröffentlichungen auf Labels wie Protogen, Shadybrain, Silbarueckenbeatz, Internet, seinem informalen “early works” 3×3-EP-Album auf T-FREE und vor allem den Vinyl-Releases auf seinem eigenen Label Tilt-Recordings hat er sich internetional Respekt erarbeitet und in zahlreichen Clubs in Europa aufgelegt. In seiner eigenen Stadt startet er immer wieder ambitionierte Partyprojekte in diversen Locations, feilt ansonsten stetig weiter an seinem Style und seinen Produktionsskills, spielt so manchen seiner eigenen Tunes traditionell von Acetat-Dubplates und lebt und atmet Drum & Bass” – um genau zu sein: deepen, groovigen Drum & Bass mit Funk.
(siehe 2012-09-22 und 2012-09-28)

Massl “aus Karlsruhe ist Teil des lebenden Undergrounds. Er hat vor geraumer Zeit aus Begeisterung für die Musik als Newcomer-DJ der alten Vinyl-Schule angefangen und sich seitdem nie um Erfolg und Standard-Promostrategien geschert, sondern im stillen Kämmerlein Mixes gemacht, in Radiosendungen aufgelegt, Leute auf Partys zum Tanzen gebracht und seit 2007 zusammen mit Rizla als “The Concussion” eigene Partys veranstaltet (mit Bookings von unkonventionell bis mutig). Sein Sound ist vorwiegend (aber nicht nur) technoid und neurofunkig, die Medien seiner Wahl sind Vinyl und CD. Seit ein paar Jahren produziert er gelegentlich auch eigene Tunes, drei davon wurden bereits auf T-FREE, Bad Taste und Ringe Raja Records veröffentlicht.”
(siehe 2012-10-20)

DJ Mix “ist eine lokale Fachkraft für Vinyl/CD-Sortierarbeiten und das Feintuning von Übergängen.”

tl;dr Farcebook-Event

Der Erlebnisbereich Basslabor öffnet sich für die Herbstsaison 2012:

Die Mahuumbar wird wieder umgestaltet, sorgfältig schallisoliert und die Raumakustik nochmals verbessert. Die High-End-PA von DKA (7000 W, 4 Punkt, Bass bis 37 Hertz) kommt wieder zum Einsatz und wird wieder von Daniel Kiefer persönlich auf die Location feinabgestimmt, diesmal im laufenden Partybetrieb mit besonderem Augenmerk auf den sich dynamisch verändernden Schalldruck einer sich füllenden Tanzfläche.

Der Abend findet ohne MCs, Dresscode oder Gruppenzwang statt, dafür mit massivem Sound und korrekten Bässen, Beats & Breaks. Die Getränkepreise sind fair (Bier 2,50 Euro), Mineralwasser gibt es gratis und ebenso die Obstkiste zu später Stunde plus free hat. Abgesehen vom Getränkeverkauf der Mahuumbar ist die Veranstaltung frei von kommerziellen Interessen und konzentriert sich über reine Feierei hinaus auf Musikqualität und soziokulturelle Nachhaltigkeit.

Das Basslabor nimmt konkret Form an und die wissenschaftlichen Experimente zur Erforschung der Formel für gepflegte Partys beginnen…

…mit den folgenden Versuchspersonen:

Budoka stammt aus dem Schoß der traditionsreichen Phismmaol Crew in Darmstadt. Er ist ein verdienter Musiker, Producer, DJ, Promoter, Labelowner und ausgebildeter Tontechniker. Mit seinen Produktionen und Veröffentlichungen auf Labels wie Protogen, Shadybrain, Silbarueckenbeatz, Internet, seinem informalen “early works” 3×3-EP-Album auf T-FREE und vor allem den Vinyl-Releases auf seinem eigenen Label Tilt-Recordings hat er sich internetional Respekt erarbeitet und in zahlreichen Clubs in Europa aufgelegt. In seiner eigenen Stadt startet er immer wieder ambitionierte Partyprojekte in diversen Locations, feilt ansonsten stetig weiter an seinem Style und seinen Produktionsskills, spielt so manchen seiner eigenen Tunes traditionell von Acetat-Dubplates und lebt und atmet Drum & Bass.

Couch Lock (the artist formerly known as Hustlin L) ist seit einem Jahrzehnt fester Bestandteil der ureigenen Mannheimer Musikszene. Er legte lange Zeit technoiden Drum & Bass auf und war u.a. mitverantwortlich für die damals bahnbrechende Partyreihe “Life-Support” Mitte der 2000er Jahre. Seitdem hat er sich in Richtung Techno weiterentwickelt und produziert seit 2010 auch Tunes, mit zunehmendem Erfolg und Releases u.a. auf seinem eigenen und kompromisslosen Label Mechno Music. Vor allem aber ist er ein erfahrener DJ mit Blick auf schiebende Beats und smoothes Mixing auf dem aktuellen Stand der Technik.

Final statement:

Some might have noticed that Tilt-Recordings has discontinued its operations… Although originally intended otherwise (cf TILT010 promotext) there will be no further vinyl releases on Tilt-Recordings because of the well known structural problems of the music industry in the contemporary digital media environment, effectively low vinyl sales and lack of funds. And since Tilt-Recordings started out as a vinyl label, it would be missing something essential if being continued 100% digitally. So the label was closed altogether.

Its last vinyl release has been TILT010 by Isotop/Kaiza/Shots/Budoka in early 2009, and the last digital release (T-FILE-EP015) came from Mefjus in November 2010.

The vinyl backstock was given out for free in spring 2011, all tunes were pulled from the digital shops soon after and were eventually made available as free 320 kbps mp3 downloads on the label homepage:

No releases whatsoever will follow after, no label comeback or re-opening of Tilt-Recordings will happen. This shutdown is final. The associated Soundcloud profile and Facebook page/group will be terminated in July.

The sister netlabel T-FREE was also closed parallely in 2011, with a massive final celebration release – an LP (“tl;dr Happy End”) with 35 tracks from Budoka, Kaiza, Mefjus, Pyro, kr4y, SKC, Mav, Paperclip, Engage, Polarity, Proktah, Phony, Bowsar and many others:

We the people behind Tilt-Recordings (Budoka, DJ Malice, Kaiza and DJ Hektik) are still around and can be contacted & booked through the label homepage and our social network profiles (Soundcloud, Facecock etc).

Kaiza’s own label T3K Recordings (started in February 2009 as a semi-sublabel and detached from Tilt-Recordings in 2010) is still very much active:

Running Tilt-Recordings / T-Files and T-FREE was a significant part of my life for the past decade. I came to meet a lot of interesting people, had many valuable experiences and tons of fun, and I believe I also have learned some facts. My thanks go to all involved artists for their musical contribution and especially for allowing me to put the tunes online as free downloads after ending the money business, Phono (without his input the Tilt vinyl series since 2006 could not possibly have been the same; R.I.P. Leet & Intersection!), Jens Zimmermann aka Tyrell, Pyro, Polarity, Dimo, xplizit, Massl, David Badger and all others who contributed resources and information at various stages, most of all to the original founders and label mates Kaiza and Budoka.

Now for some final words by these other two label owners of Tilt-Recordings who have remained silent in most of the former label statements.

Kaiza:
“Tilt-Recordings was the start of something for me. It was way more than just a label to release music i made or i liked. For me, it began to happen at the right time and the right place. And it was the melting pot of beliefs, ideals and expectations and also the first place of examination, observation, reflection and of course action. It was the roof over my head when “bad weather” was working against me and the “ground” beneath my feet on which i could walk whenever i wanted to. For me, the label was an absolute term for quite a long time. It was the main medium to make contacts, see the world and find a position in the dnb (lol)-circus. Although the idea (and so the label itself) was totally different in the beginning from what it became later on, Tilt-Recordings and all the people and things around it were basic groundworks for my musical development and also for my personal formation.
Now, some years later (and after countless experiences which can not be named here) and of course after a lot of change, i can say that i learned and gained so much from this project. For sure, these experiences are something that i dont want to miss… ”

Budoka:
“Looking back on the past almost ten years with ten vinyl-releases, a couple of mp3s and a heavy load of free tunes, Tilt-Recordings was not only a label to me but so much more. It was my homebase and it has given me the possibility to share my music to people all over the world. In all these years I gained a lot of experience and found many new friends. The label also pushed my development in producing and the evolving of my own sound.
So I have to thank my label-m8s for their hard work and for the many discussions we had. Sometimes they weren’t easy, but in the end we still made it and I’m proud that I’ve been a part of it.”

Senseless / A Night Full Of Bass
It’s all about Drum N Bass & Breakbeats – all night long!

Mainfloor: Liquid Funk, Intelligent Drum & Bass and more
Them & Us (Killa Kela & Ami Carmine)
Franksen (KIB / Sidechain / You FM, Frankfurt)
Monophonic (Suite Resident, Hamburg)

New.Space: T3K Recordings welcomes AUDIOPHILEZ
Budoka & DJ Malice (Audiophilez, Darmstadt)
Kaiza (T3K Recordings, Mannheim)
The Sickbrotherz (Therapy Sessions, Mannheim)

Die Senseless-Party geht in die 4. Runde. Headliner sind diesmal der Beatbox-Weltmeister Killa Kela, der mit seiner Djane Ami Carmine wieder zu Gast in der Suite ist. Die beiden haben bei der 2. Senseless-Party die Hütte abgerissen. Unterstützt werden sie von den „Senseless-Residents“ Franksen und Monophonic.

Im New.Space ist Mefjus aus Österreich der Headliner und seine Sets sprühen nur so vor feinstem Neurofunk. Der Mann startet gerade derbe durch: Releases auf dem Digital-Ableger von Neosignal (das Label von Phace & Misanthrop), dem Imprint von Jade (Eat Brain Recordings) welches zwei Collabs mit den ebenfalls gerade mächtig angesagten Leipzigern Neonlight featured, ausserdem Veröffentlichungen auf Bad Taste Recordings, Rise Audio, Trust In Music, Citrus Recordings, Disturbed und und und. Gastgeber Kaiza aus dem Hause T3K Recordings wird ebenfalls einiges auf den Dancefloor abfeuern. Das wird heftig! Zudem wird das Ganze von den Sickbrotherz abgerundet. You know what to expect.

ACHTUNG!!! ÄNDERUNG DES LINEUPS:
Aufgrund eines Missverständnisses kann Mefjus dieses Mal nicht am Start sein. Wir bedauern dies sehr, aber werden dennoch eine gediegene Party reissen.
Als Ersatz werden Budoka und DJ Malice von der Audiophilez-Crew aus Darmstadt den 2. Floor beschallen. Die Mitbegründer von Tilt-Recordings sind keine Unbekannten und haben sich auch als Phishmaol Cru einen Namen gemacht. Ihre Audiophilez-Partyreihe in verschiedenen Locations in und um Darmstadt war erfolgreich und auch ihre Produktionen (check http://soundcloud.com/audiophilez-1 bzw http://soundcloud.com/srbe/budoka-it-hurtz) sind hochwertig. Gute Voraussetzungen also für eine gelungene Nacht.

Was noch?

http://djmix5000.wordpress.com

The main purpose of this party is the celebration of Bass Music and analogue DJ culture. It will take place in a relatively small, intimate location named “Der Blaue Raum” on the estate of an alternative living community. The prices for drinks will be unusually low, the athmosphere friendly, the basslines rolling and the selection proper. Ravers, hippies, nerds and actual music lovers welcome.

The location also has a second floor/room, basically for chilling & smoking, and the music here will be selected by DJ Youtube and MC Mouseclick (this is where your spouses’ crappy song requests will be honoured).


This LP concludes 6 years of T-FREE history and marks the end of all the label’s activities, parallel to the final shutdown of Tilt-Recordings.

Mad props to all artists involved on both labels!

Few more things are left to be adressed on this final occasion.

Over time, T-FREE has frequently been subject to discussions, provoking disagreement on all aspects: its musical orientation and range of varying sound quality from release to release, the public opinions and Internet behaviour of the labelmaker, the absence of artwork, the used form of presentation and the ideological fact of T-FREE being an anti-commercial netlabel. Two opposing opinions usually dominate these debates:

“puts some more established labels to shame”
(crystl_lake @ www.freak-recordings.com/community 2008-06)

“96% of the shit you put out is garbage”
(djc @ www.techno-dnb.com/forum 2008-06)

Regardless of reactions, T-FREE has always followed a certain sound/style (with few exceptions), aiming at DJs, not critics. This final release continues that label policy to the end. Some of the tunes are old, some brandnew, some re-released. As usually, they came directly from the producers’ computers without any additional mastering done on them. So they all have different mixdowns, loudness levels and sound characters.

Thus probably everybody will hate some tunes on this LP, but perhaps also everybody will like some tunes on it.

And hopefully this LP will stand worthy as a final release, after 184 tunes on 118 releases (plus these) in 6 years. The traffic statistics show that literally tens of thousands of people have downloded the releases (average circa 45,000). Some of the tunes have even cracked the 100,000 mark. T-FREE had a good run, brought a lot of music to many people and maybe even contributed to some Drum & Bass artist careers.

It was fun, inspiring and politically the right thing to do (from all three perspectives: before, during and after).

“Goodbye everybody!”

PS: A note for the haters. When your favourite bigname DJs play “dubplates” in their mixes, those also are unmastered tunes (from different artists) and they all sound differently.

PPS: Some quoteworthy thoughts about releasing older tunes and the general question of wether artists or audiences own works of art:

With all due respect to the artist(s), it’s kind of idiotic and egoic to not give people what they want, when no almost no effort is involved in distributing a track these days.. When you have fans who fucking dearly want something you made, there are only a few reasons why artists tend not to give them out, and only 2 of those legit.

1) Lost the file (mp3 or sequencer file, DAT tape (LOL) whatever) < -- legit

2) Doesn't want it to be released because they either hate it or thing it's 'beneath' them because their production value has improved over time. Somewhat understandable but ultimately unjustified and pretentious. Ego-based and too concerned about 'image'.

3) Some kind of record label stipulation or legal mangling <-- legit, not understandable, but legit

4) You get off on the fact that people who want something you created will never get it - then you're just a dick. Ultimate in pretension.

(source)

the rest of this and other “save the planet, kill yourself” issues can be found elswhere; don’t believe the hype!
And now for the music.

Mav feat. Tyrah Morena – “Special Forces”
8:52 min mp3 (320 kbps, 20.3 mb) –> T-FREE-LP002_01__Mav_feat_Tyrah_Morena_-Special_Forces.mp3
Mav is a 20 degree black belt master of techy Athmospheric Drum & Bass. He was exposed to the broader Drum & Bass scene for the first time pretty much through the Armada Recordings launch incident in 2005. That label, planned and publically announced for well over 2 years, had advertised their first release as a 4×12″ LP including Mav’s “Ocean Phantom” among Noisia’s “Desolation” plus Teebee remix and tunes by Corrupt Souls, Desimal and Brain. The scene waited a long time for it with great anticipation and indeed “unprecedented hype.” The delay had already become a running gag when the LP was finally made available; exclusively through the Armada online shop and as a subscription series model. The label wanted to have people pay for the release, use this money to press the vinyl and then send it to the people who paid in first place. The shop script gave customers a timeframe of 6-8 weeks until delivery. 7 days after the shop opened, Teebee, a man always good for some action, made a public announcement about pulling back his remix from Armada for having not been paid until the deadline (and released it shortly after on Renegade Hardware with some different samples and entitled “The Force”). Customers were asking the label many questions and got few satisfactory answers back. Two months later the people who had bought into the subscription were given mp3s of the LP tunes (minus the Teebee remix) and offered refunds. Many of the customers downloaded the tunes instantly, many also chose to ask for the refund and some of them never got their money back. The label crew fell apart and the entire Armada bubble slowly collapsed, leaving behind one of the greatest dramas in Drum & Bass Internet History. Some excellent DOA threads can still be easily found with a search for the word “armada”. And some of the tunes (including Noisia’s otherwise unreleased techmospheric masterpiece “Desolation”) can still be downloaded here.
One of the great things about this label was the indirect promotion effect for involved artists, including Mav. “Ocean Phantom” ended up as his third tune on Fokuz Limited and he also left his mark on other labels, most notably ASC’s Covert Operations (incidentally a label that used a subscription model successfully). Mav’s tunes are a lasting influence, musically untouchable and as epic as the Armada fail was.
“Special Forces” was until now only on a mix-CD in a 2xCD joint album on Covert Operations and Warm Communications [COVWC-CD001] in 2003 and digitally available through Covert Operations, offline since 2009. Watch out for the reworked 2011 version on Mav’s forthcoming LP (!)

Kigami has been around for a while and released some tunes on Metafiziq, T3K, the HMSU netlabel and Tinnitus Recordings. Broozy is a Bulgarian DJ who never released a tune before. His sad, sad tale must not be told but quoted directly: "Born in the harsh mountains of Bulgaria to a family of coal miners, he had really tough childhood. One of his favorite things at this time was listening to stories about unicorns and fairies, sitting around the fire in the company of turkish truck drivers and gipsy prostitutes. After being beaten nearly to death by his father, the young soon-to-be musician decided to escape the mines and to went to the big city to become a glue inhaler or more commonly known as 'lepilar'. Once after being unable to find enough money to buy his favorite 'Kale', our young hero decided to steal an mp3 player from a car that was parked nearby. As soon as he broke the side window open, the alarm of the car turned on. Then something strange happened - he was fascinated by the magical sounds, and decided this was his destiny. And thus was born Broozy - The Defender of Car Alarm Music."

Artwork final:


Seit 1996 gibt es die Darmstädter Phishmaol-Crew. In Sachen Drum’n'Bass dürfen die DJs Malice, Spawn und Budoka also getrost als alte Hasen und fester Bestandteil der Rhein-Main-Szene bezeichnet werden. Mit zahlreichen Gigs und eigenen Veranstaltungen, darunter die Eventreihen Update (603qm) und Audiophilez (Room 106), konnte die Phishmaol-Crew ihr Können an den Decks unter Beweis stellen und die Region immer wieder mit interessanten und hochkarätigen Gästen der DnB-Szene bereichern. Ende Mai präsentiert die Phishmaol-Crew eine neue Folge der Audiophilez-Reihe auf 603qm wird den Floor mit frischen Beats und tiefen Bässen beschallen. Neben aktuellen Tunes und eigenen Releases werden auch viele brandneue, bisher unveröffentlichte Produktionen zu hören sein. Auch das eigene Label Tilt-Recordings, das in Kooperation mit den Mannheimern DJ Hektik und Bad Boy Kaiza gegründet wurde, konnte in den letzten 6 Jahren mit positiven Reviews in der nationalen und internationalen Szene-Presse auf sich aufmerksam machen.

Budoka has recently released 4 new tunes digitally via Tilt-Recordings / T-Files, and gives out an older tune via T-FREE now: “Engine” is an unreleased party roller tool from early 2007 (new mixdown done in 2009). After downloading this tune here for free, go check out Budoka’s new “Echoes” EPs! (Echoes EP pt.2, Echoes EP pt.1)

–> 320 kbps mp3



For the second part of his “Echoes” EP project, Budoka has again put together two different tunes:

“Eye Sea Blue” is a lovely, technoid summer roller with a beautiful hookline and other melodic guitar parts all played by the musician Budoka himself. The tune is set in a warm summer night at the ocean and brings precisely this athmosphere into the clubs together with a proper rumbling bassline.

“Desolation” is a serious, modern Neurofunk bomb on a high quality level that combines the latest minimalist tech-nology with Budoka’s own style and brings a seldomly heard musical element into the soundscape: subtle, spacey “donks” (formerly known as stabs) appearing in a triplet arrangement, remotely similar to the bassline notes in “Echoes.” It goes without saying that the tune fulfills the sound admission requirements for the international top league with ease. Its precise, juicy beat, angry but carefully restrained and condensed midranges and its massive, although hardly accented bassline as an entity do indeed “rinse it out of proper!”

Budoka – “Eye Sea Blue” –> 128 kbps mp3 clip
Budoka – “Desolation” –> 128 kbps mp3 clip

320 kbps mp3 and wav available on Beatport, Digital-Tunes, Juno, Chemical, ithinkmusic.



Budoka, much underrated and overlooked German producer, co-founded the label Tilt-Recordings seven years ago primarily as an outlet for his Drum & Bass productions. Ever since, he has released annual tokens of his constant production improvement on the label’s vinyl series. The material he worked on since the release of TILT010 in 2009 is now ripe and ready to be put out into the world. So, today, he is starting the 2010 season of the label’s digital only series T-Files by delivering a digital EP (it is actually his T-Files solo debut because his only tune on there so far was a collaboration with DJ Malice).

Both tunes are techy bits in Budoka’s trademark handwriting, highlighting different aspects of his musical mind:

“Echoes” comes in with a dark, mysterious and very catchy theme which instantly draws all listeners’ attention and makes the tune a definite sure shot in combination with its evil, throbbing bassline and deep space soundscape. The tune turns out a heavy roller and proves that Budoka can do more than just generic Neurofunk midrange-tools: he makes deep music for the dancefloor in his own style.

“Tubular” has more of a classically paranoid techy feel, an almost oldschool-ish atmosphere despite the modern, sophisticated sound techniques beneath the musical surface. It plays a lot with midrange/bassline combinations, empty space and ancient wooden stabs more common to the historical 1990s period than recent Drum & Bass trends. Tubular is one of the tunes that openly show just how much the early sound of Ed Rush & Optical on Virus has been a key influence and great inspiration to Budoka; like “The Happening” on TILT005 it brings that certain feeling into a strong tune with today’s sound standard.

Budoka – “Echoes” –> 128 kbps mp3 clip
Budoka – “Tubular” –> 128 kbps mp3 clip

320 kbps mp3 and wav available on Beatport, Digital-Tunes, Juno, Chemical, ithinkmusic.
