Ganja White Knight

So I had a pretty long rant written up for today about my opinion on the state of music but then I found Ganja White Knight’s new album and I had to hold off for another week. Don’t worry though, it’s coming, and it’s a good one. Anyways, you must be thinking this album is pretty awesome for me to hold off on a long, well written rant and you would be right. Good is an understatement though, this album is pure gold. Right when I thought dubstep was worn out and overdone, Ganja White Knight brings me back to loving it again. Borrowing elements from so many different and unexpected genres I can honestly say that this is one of the best albums I’ve ever listened to. The amount of time, work, and energy that must have gone into it is seriously impressive and it’s very rare today to see EDM artists releasing full albums instead of just EPs. Usually, I’d list my favorite songs but they are all equally impressive. Listen to this from start to finish in order because that’s the way it’s meant to be heard (at least the first time around).

I can’t embed this album but listen to it free at http://www.GanjaWhiteNight.com!

Keeno

Drum and Bass. The only genre that I’m not feeling kinda burnt out on in EDM these days. Underground enough that everyone isn’t trying to do the same cookie cutter track as the next, but popular enough that it attracts some really amazing artists. I don’t know why there’s never really been a big Dnb scene here in the states but I’m super jealous of the UK. I follow a lot of Dnb artists and they are always posting some amazing shows that they’re playing over there. Especially Hospital Records. Damn, do they have some amazing talent and put on some truly epic shows. A recent signing to the legendary label is Keeno. With a background in classical music, this shows through in his tracks. He’s only 18… god damn. What was I doing when I was 18. Oh yeah, nothing.

I love the style of these tracks. Chill and soulful. A perfect match for Hospital Records. Need to Feel Loved is my favorite release of the whole year, although technically it was the end of December I didn’t find it until last week. The rest of these songs are also sweet. Get ready for some “orchestral sin-sations” hehe. Lords of Acid reference…

ADAM F

AdamF

Ok so it’s not my normal day for posting, but Ames was hammed last night and is sick/hungover from work today.  So being the nice guy that I am, I thought I’d go ahead an post for him.  Today we will bring in another top notch man from one of the best labels in the UK.  Adam Fenton was born in Liverpool and currently resides in London.  He is another experienced producer coming off of the breakbeat kaos label.  He goes by the stage name of Adam F and has some excellent drum and bass, hip hop, and dubstep productions.  Not only does he produce, but he also DJ’s and has a small acting career, starring in the wonderful film that is Ali G Indahouse (named after Gizmo’s sister of course)!  He has also done some work with one of my favorite Hip Hop artists Redman, however, I was unable to find a quality original online (most were clips from Annie Mac’s Radio or some crappy remix).  His remix of Richard Vission & Static Revenger‘s “I Like That” is a filthy dubstep track that brings in some dnb late in the mix.  “Circles” is one of his own productions and is more of a chill dnb/jungle track that i really enjoy!  And know come the youtube’s with Sander Van Doorn and Mayaeni‘s “Nothing Inside” an epic song that was remixed ever so nicely from Mr. Fenton.  Next up is a video of “Elements” a solid dubstep song, which goes in and out of the hardcore sounds that come with it, making it subtle yet great.  Last up we have his collab remix with Horx of Prodigy‘s “Take Me to the Hospital” once again a quality remix of one of my favorite songs growing up, gotta love Prodigy!

Great day today, off from work and got some major shit with the courts cleared up!
