My Top 5 Songs from Dubporn: The Future



After an interesting back and forth on Twitter over the new Dubporn Compilation I decided I should write a little review here and put the matter to rest. Basically the tweet suggested that I could not decide on a favorite track because they were all so good, it’s fair enough to say I was pleasantly surprised at the collection put together by camp Dubporn. I knew my long time pal Adrianna Gooddroid had put together a label catering to bassey-garagey-technoie stuff, but it was from Miami. Unless we’re talking about Wade and Lebron battling Kobe, CP3, and the rest of the Lakers in the 2012 NBA Finals, Miami doesn’t typically generate a tremendous amount of buzz internationally. Could this Miami start-up really be a relevant player, a tropical Hyperdub oasis La Sanwicherie’d somewhere in between Coral Gables and the American Airlines Arena?

Illegitimate Children and Handbook both add two songs a piece making up just over a quarter of the entire compilation between the both of them. I want to go on record and say that even if Illegitimate Children produced a pile of dirty laundry I would still listen to it at least once based solely on the name. It’s definitely not laundry though, they’re actually delightfully produced tracks. Especially “Cubicle”, which I believe is the opening track and does of good job of quickly raising the expectations throughout. Blacksmif’s contribution, “Legend of the White Horse Plains” jumps out as wordy frontrunner for my personal favorite despite him modestly admitting that he himself preferred Handbook. Noble move on his behalf but Handbook’s two offerings “Luurrve” and “Girl, Stay” are slightly sappy for my taste. Sentimental baked goods not suited for misanthropes who like making love while watching Ichi the Killer or the even more barbaric film, Babel. They’re probably Drake’s favorites though.

“Mortem Obire” is the second song on here and it definitely appeals to my nostalgia for bottom notes. The moody layers and mature tones means it was almost certainly produced by a grizzled veteran involved in the intricacies of sound engineering for numerous decades…wait, WHAT! 18 years old! Fuck man, this happens to me now at least once a year when I’m introduced to a producer that I think is much older based on the maturity of their music. Whether it’s Kode9 first introducing me to Joker or in this case Biak. Could it be us twenty thirty somethings naturally feel like the next generation couldn’t possibly understand the subtle philosophies and vacuous nuances that made this sound great in the first place? It’s quasi Gran Torino mentality that should get the kibosh before we’re left standing on the porch like Walt Kowalski waving a M1 Garand around at 3 o’clock in the afternoon.

5 Years of Hyperdub cost me somewhere in between three months interning at a Miami ad agency and half a day raking autumn leaves off Granma’s front lawn. I’m not saying Dubporn Records: The Future is anywhere close to 5 but it’s free and it’s worth talking about. The labels potential and the strength of its young roster make downloading a no-brainer. If I had to make a critique it would be that a few of the songs feel over-ambitious technically, bordering on pretentious. The best beats in the world are simple loops with just one or two creative breaks. As soon as I start hearing classical piano samples and build-ups that progress into a song’s third melody I tune it out faster than I tune my family out when I’m trying to watch the second game of a NBA tripleheader on Christmas Day.

Overall I stand by my original tweet, the whole collection is highly enjoyable and paints a ton of atmosphere for the listeners. It’s layered, moody and challenging and a brilliant way to showcase the first year of a promising new label from the land of cortaditos, flamingos and Ferraris.



Top 5:

1. “Concentrate” - Somejerk

2. “Spun” – Sipp

3. “Shimma” - Porphyro

4. “Legend of the White Horse Plains” - Blacksmif

5. “Opaque” – Chalk.

DP005 Released on Dubporn Records


Ukranian based DJ Reixtra's Prymara EP was released on Dubporn Records on November 28th. After many years performing everything from Drum and Bass to IDM to experimental and anything in between, Reixtra settled on a found that gravitates towards Dubstep and Future Garage, with heavy influences from Reggae and Calypso.

The EP, titled Prymara, features seven tracks that showcase the artist’s versatility while embracing the label’s deep bass roots. With tracks like the haunting yet romantic “Pregnancy” and the equally airy yet dark and bass fueled “Neverliving”, the EP explores the “pacifying, often sad atmospheric sounds” that he is known for. The ep’s title track, “Prymara, is a perfect dreamy example of the “set of extraordinary rhythms” that he is well versed at creating.

Reixtra: Pregnancy by Dubporn Records

You can purchase the Prymara EP at many fine online retailers such as Beatport, Boomkat, Juno, Itunes and more.

Dubporn Records also recently released a new free compilation EP titled 'The Future' featuring tracks from signed and unsigned artists.


Look out for Adames's 'Be Bop Peru' EP released on December 12th as well as Imaginary Friend's 'Dark Matter' LP on the 26th.

DP004 Released: Inanna's Cariad EP on Dubporn Records

Inanna's long awaited Cariad EP has finally been released on Dubporn Records. Featuring remixes from PTR1 and Shoju, Cariad has received amazing reviews. This is definitely a release you need to get your hands on.

'Cariad immediately takes us back to a time where life was easy, nothing to worry about, innocence. The music-box melody and chimes combine with simple percussion in an Aphex Twin type piece that gets the replay everytime. It’s left up to her own remix to take it up a notch into the more broken beat territories that some may find even more blissful, keeping all the original elements and adding a little tempo with some warm bass to boot. Unbelieveably good music, so nice.

The experimental mix hears children laughing and a 4/4 kick that gives more movement whilst not overpowering the overall sense of wonderment and beauty held by the main music-box melody that gets even more embellished here. Then lastly Shoju gives ‘Cariad’ an overhaul and turns it into a more dancefloor slice of heads down, deep house music that will go down a storm come 3am at Fabric.'

You can purchase the EP on Beatport, Boomkat, Juno and at other fine online retailers.

Look out for the 'Future of Dubporn' compilation that's being released on November 24th, followed by Reixtra's 'Prymara' EP on the 28th. Lots more to come in December.

For more info check out the Dubporn Records site, or find us on Facebook or Soundcloud.

2 HipHop heads and Dubstep

I picked up Ephniko from the airport one rainy evening. He had just flown in from Colombia where he was recording his new album. After peeping out his new project in the car we spoke about a possible remix for one of his new tunes and about him spitting on one of my original tunes. We set up a date to meet at TRIFEKTA studios to select a tune that he could drop some vocals on. He selected Violence, returned a week later and we recorded the vocals and the result was this..

Dubporn Records Releases DP003: Porphyro's Qualia EP


After the successful release of Inanna's Touch Me EP, Dubporn Records comes from a very talented young man out named Oliver Wallace, also known as Porphyro. Only 22 years of age and based out of Canterbury London, Porphyro's sound can be described as a mature take on Modern World Bass Music.

The EP, titled Qualia, features two tracks which showcase what could almost be the range of his sound. The first track, 'Finance' draws heavily from the deep bas sound with emphasis on bass and a trance inspired vocal track. The second, 'Never', is an airy, spacey track that almost floats effortlessly by.

Set to be released on October 10th, Qualia can be purchased at one of many fine online retailers.


The music video for Finance will be out on the same day, Directed by Adrianna Moschides, Lauren Valdes and STENFilms.

BassHead Releases "BASSMENTALITY" by ZEDS DEAD & THE KILLABITS! Remix by FIGURE!

If you're a good BassHead, you've already hit your favorite digital outlet (Beatport, Itunes, etc) and bought their latest release by Canadian duos ZEDS DEAD & THE KILLABITS called "Bassmentality." Bassmentality is also the name of the artists' Toronto party, where JUAN BASSHEAD has played multiple times. BassHead helped bring ZEDS DEAD (and hopefully THE KILLABITS soon) here to GET LOW for their first Miami show, so you see it was natural for Juan to put out the two groups' first musical collaboration.


Thanks for helping the home team get up to #4 on the Beatport Dubstep chart!


Now if you haven't bought it, go do it, so we can push BassHead Music to number 1! We leave you with our final argument, this intense drumstep remix by sought-after producer FIGURE.

PREVIEWING SOME NEW DAVE BETAMAX



Vudoo feat. Dionysiac [Preview] by Dave Betamax

Dave Betamax returns with a preview of a track from his forthcoming release, Floating Rocks, scheduled to drop at the end of the year. This is also part of a side project he is cultivating that will go by the name Dead Tongues. This track is a score from an unwritten movie based on Japanese folklore. The song begins with a dark, ominous atmosphere sprinkled with the haunting piano of one of our mysterious newcomers, Dionysiac. The track throws you deep in the jungle with deep vibrations, hard hitting tribal drums, and seductive vocals.

CHALK.'s Set on Where Were U in 02

Two way here,



Big ups to anyone who tuned int his past Sunday for a pretty special edition of Where Were U in 02. I had producer Chalk come through the studio, in full force Entourage-style, perform a wonky-as-fuck set for the show. Weaving genres from hip-hop, trip-hop, 60s psychedelic, dubstep and jazz-- it was definitely a really special ting.

Using his Newmark midi controller, he fashioned some nutso improvisation.

Definitely worth checking out!

Ukulele (Mixtape)

It feels like a slow Monday so I'll post this mixtape I recorded awhile back. I find it kind of hilarious when I attempt to mix dubstep and then accidentally not use any dubstep tracks. This turned out to be more like a collection of influences that have been rattling around in my musical side of the brain lately (not moombahton.) An Ableton Live post-graduate boredom outlet (why not share it with a few peeps?) A visual artist by trade, I should be drawing (or something) but playing records in my bedroom takes my mind off things recent graduates occupy their nerves with.

All Kinds of Bass in Miami Tonight

If you're looking for some Saturday night bass in Miami, here's some good options...

The return of Down Sundays

If you're new to dubstep and bass music in Miami then you may not be aware of the party that we call Down. If you are familiar, read anyways 'cause this shit took a while to write!

In 2010 Gooddroid got together with a couple of Miami selectors that supported the deeper shades of dubstep, with the intent of providing a place to dance and hang out that you're not going to feel so bro'd out all night. After moving to a couple of venues, Bar Black became the home and many, many Sunday nights were spent drinking cheap beer, skanking out, playing Scrabble and video games!

With guests such as Scuba, Djunya, FaltyDL, Joe Nice, Scuba, Headhunter, Distance, Brenmar, Nick Argon and the best local talent, the night was solidified as the spot to hear deep dubstep, garage and future bass. Unfortunately Bar Black had to close it's doors to the public, just as I joined as a regular resident, and we've been pretty sad ever since.

After a period of time and effort, we've located our new home, in the side room at the newly renovated Eve, just around the corner from our previous home. While we may have changed homes, our passion for deep bass music hasn't, and we are very proud and excited to see our regulars, and new faces, every other Sunday starting September 11th.

Here are mixes from our residents, to give you a taste of what we have done, and what is to come.

Once again, Down returns on Sunday, September 11th at the side room at Eve nightclub (1306 N Miami Ave.), with no cover for everyone that's 18+ with residents somejerk, Gooddroid, Ashworth and Gray Ghost spinning the dopest and deepest in dubstep, garage, future bass and everything in between. 


Peace and respect to all crews, Miami and internationally, that support the bass music movement and extra extra love to our friends at Get Low/Shake, BassHead Music, Smile For Camera, Bass-Love, Smut + Bass, and the Miami Dubstep family.

Lunice – ‘LIVE FROM’ RED BULL MUSIC ACADEMY PRES. MAJOR LAZER AT NOTTING HILL CARNIVAL

Sure, Miami is the hub and essentially the only place you can get original booty bass records on wax. And for a split-second, we all thought Uncle Luke was going to be elected mayor (he is partly responsible for this video). But Miami is also home to primary strands of dirty south, thug rap, of which you can finds thousands of mixtapes at the Carol City Flea Market. It's a sound that we're accustomed to and hear on a regular just listening to 99Jamz throughout the day.

Not until recently has this flavor of crunk'd-out 140 bpm rap evolved into less of a forum for MCs to spit on, and more of a producer-centered area of club banging. The fact that it has seeped into the UK bass mindframe w/ producers like Girl Unit, Salva and S-X, should be even more indication that tastemakers should be turning their heads over to the 305 for more influence.

That said, Toronto-based Lunice, who's been producing this same thug-conscious sound for the past couple of years, performed a set at London's Notthingham Carnival this past week, w/ Boiler Room (the Ustream UK electronic channel) on deck to document the whole thing.

(Below is the audio. Click on the blog post title to watch the set)



Dude has tons of energy, and his set spiraled between based rap, gangster-heavy UK bass, fringe footwork tunes and King of Diamonds-ready trap rap. I'm telling you-- this is a sound I feel us Miami Dubsteppers should really be exploring. It's not a foreign culture either-- it's rap we grew up either loving or hating (though, you were probably lying about hating it).



Lunice puts these familiar rap signifiers and connects it with the UK culture we're accustomed to, mixing Gucci Mane with Girl Unit into a synonymous category to a point where you don't even know whose song you're listening to anymore.

I've seen DJs connect the dots, like Juan B and Gooddroid. Let's all connect these dots and highlight some of the great stuff Miami has to offer by not dismissing the mainstream rap community that's built within the South, but highlighting/celebrating it.

Small Introduction

Two-Way here.

Kind and badboy head honcho of Miami Dubstep, Jsin, asked if I wanted to be an admin of the MD blog and, of course, I said yes. He said it can get really lonely posting up stuff on here, and since I run my own dubstep/bass-centered blog, I thought I could help him out!

Just a light introduction of myself. I host a weekly radio show called Where Were U in '02 on WRGP Radiate FM FIU Radio (the Sunday 8-10 slot) where I spin dubstep, grime, UK Funky, house and all facets of the bass continuum. Been doing the show for almost a year and a half, and it's my baby. It's gone through so many stages of growth, with myself fostering it to what it is now. And it can only get bigger (that's what she said).

Guests I've had on the show include: Mary Anne Hobbs, Juan Basshead, Gooddroid, Dave Betamax, Animal Krackerz, Never Yawn, Grayghost, Jumanji and more.

Dream Guests: Rick Ross, Oneman, Wiley, DJ/Rupture, Starkey, DJ Khaled, Eric Rincon, Ben UFO

This isn't actually my first time on the MD blog. Jsin, pretty much the earliest supporter of WWU02, wrote about the show when it first started.

Basically I'm going to be introducing new sounds to the Miami mindset. Not only Miami-bred things, but stuff that can have a potential impact on our scene and provoke huge growth within. I wanna also find oddities within the Miami community that relate to our booming bass scene and hopefully connect it all to what we're here for in the first place: to dance.

So that's my aim essentially.

Visit my radio show's blog and if you want to e-mail me, it's wwu02info@gmail.com.



And if you see me at the club, say what's up! I look like this:



Big ups
