Mefjus started making a name for himself in the Drum & Bass scene during 2009 and 2010 with digital-only and netlabel releases on T-Files, Mindtech, T-FREE, Flight, Fish Rec, Dangerous New Age and Internet Recordings aside from his vinyl debut on Dramfank and a tune on the Future-Forum Sampler 2010. Now he brings this EP covering the major aspects of Tilt-Recordings’ musical agenda: Radix VIP is a twisted, midrangey piece of energetic technoid halfbar bass wickedness, and the Moloch remix is another tribute to one of the label’s most celebrated classic.

Tbh an LP had been planned originally… But with time passing, it became evident at some point that many of the older tunes do not represent Mefjus’ new sound today. So the plan changed; most of the older bits will probably never be released, and the two Nu Skool Breaks tunes originally scheduled for the LP will come out somewhere else. By the way, check out Mefjus’ new release on KindCrime Recordings (KDC004) from July:


…and don’t miss Mefjus’ journey into the bigname realm of Drum & Bass: watch out for his vinyl release together with Fourward, forthcoming on Bad Taste Recordings! (and more collabos with Fourward, Bowser, Kaiza, Xilent and Wreckage Machinery coming out soon on T3K, Abducted and other labels)

Nufojah is one of the guys behind Kriotek, together with Proton Kid and Blastphemik. This group needs no introduction anymore. And with his solo release on SCPTX and T3K Nufojah has shown his production abilities in his own respect to a satisfying degree. So, not much really has to be said (except that he has also started producing techno). Simply check this tune here, a fine piece of solid and properly rolling Techno-DNB: pumping bass meets halfbar beat and reversed lead synths hacked to pieces in a dark atmo.

After a multitude of collaborations with Kaiza on Mind Outside, Tilt-Recordings / T-Files, Mindtech, Tinnitus, Suspect Device, Necroïd, Fish Recordings, Cyber Crunk and T-FREE plus two of their rare solo tunes on Fish, Try and Error release their third official solo tune now on Tilt-Recordings / T-Files, together with a VIP version made by Kaiza. Both the original version and the Kaiza VIP are percussive, melody-free Techno-DNB tools.

After three single Colmant tunes on Tilt-Recordings (Sinecore feat. Peter Kurten – “Vendetta” [T-FILE012], Kriotek – “Borrhot” (Sinecore RMX) [T-FILE026], Sinecore + Peter Kurten – “Virulence” [T-FILE029]) it is now time for an EP (and something else soon). “Arsenic” is a rhythmic bouncer, almost completely dry. A proper basic loop made of syncopated bass stabs interplaying with a strong kickdrum and a dry snare, opened up with creative breaks, is all that is needed. “The Dead Man Walking” has a similar structure. But it is rolling more, has a much less prominent snare and there is a constantly modulated synth line woven into the rhythmic texture. Techno at its core: melody functions smoothly as one among other rythmic elements.

Spinor‘s big tune “Moloch” eventually came out on vinyl in 2008. It sold 500 copies and made TILT008 the most successful release on Tilt-Recordings yet (read: ever). Now, in 2010, these two remixes are released digitally. Enjoy!

T-FILE026 was a remix of a tune by Kriotek originally released as T-FILE011 in 2008. Now, T-FILE027 is a remix of “Tsar” by Kaiza featuring Isotop and Shots (released in 2009 as T-FREE059), done by Kriotek in 2010. Kriotek are a producer crew consisting of 3 artists from 2 countrys: Proton Kid and Nufojah from Romania and Blastphemik from UK. They experiment with different forms of broken beats in technoid and minimal Drum & Bass, Dubstep and other styles of dance music. Here they have given the tune “Tsar” a proper facelift and demonstrate, along the way, that Techno-DNB is still very much alive and evolving, regardless of internet debates and genre clichés. The remix updates the uncompromisingly percussive concept of the original with a much improved sound, an angry bassline and a massive, pumping beatloop. The result is a thick wall of bouncing rythm and driving energy; in other words: pure awesome. Watch out for Proton Kid’s solo productions and do not miss the Kriotek EP forthcoming on T3K!

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, 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.

Sinecore, one of the newer faces on the forefront of technoid, dark and hard Belgian Drum & Bass, returns to Tilt-Recordings to delivers a remix of Kriotek‘s “BoRRhot” (originally released as T-FILE011 in 2008). It is very straight forward and technoid to the core, building on the vibe of the original but pushing it to the next level: the remix is free of melodic ballast and has a hard halfbar loop construction just like the original, but the beat sounds are much more compact and the bassdrum arrangement morphs a lot; the lead synth has morphed significantly but is still recognizable and the halfbar bass impulse has changed to a deep rumbling. In the end Sinecore has created a mighty weapon, combining a powerful, seriously technoid drive with playful edits.

Kaiza and Shots are both sick producers, and when coming together they are a force to be reckoned with. Now they have done it again… After their wicked collabo “Purple View” [T-FILE020] and two more tunes just recently released on Ogonek’s label Metafiziq, they return to Tilt-Recordings / T-Files with this simplified, heavy and bouncing Techno-DNB stomper: Aggressive halfbar looptechno, no skulls needed. And it comes in the already well known fashion of bringing two different versions, original and VIP – to serve the principle of variation and variety and to please the Techno-DNB forum VIP crew ;)

Yabol from Lodz (Poland) had his debut release on T-FREE in 2007, together with Pylon and Structural. Later that year, Structural made the widely celebrated “M3CH4PL3X Promo Mix 2007” which quickly spread the names of Yabol and his Mechaplex crew mates Soccom, Pylon and Switch Technique in the Techno-DNB scene. Two of their tunes were signed to DSCI4 and others got released on Venom Inc, Sinuous, Prspct, Cyba Drum, Substance, Digital Venom, Sinious Audio, Dark Asylum, Impakt, Ruse, Flight Digital and Zardonic Recordings. Now, Yabol honours T-Files with “The Lawnmover Man”, a powerful and twisted yet deep Techno-DNB stomper. It had already been featured in said Promo Mix in 2007 (which, by the way, is still online and downloadable)… and now, two years later, it is finally unleashed.

Here is another quality production by Kaiza feat. Try and Error, continuing their stream of fruitful collaborations. A powerful and compact Techno-DNB tool in two versions, differing in the lead midrange synth being put in 4 bars in the original version respectively in a halfbar arrangement in the VIP version.
