    Snap Crackle.....Drop!!


    BBC

     

    Kutski

     

    This week we went for something a little deeper, in our quest for the ultimate gritty crackly vinyl search!!

     

    For those new to the show, we have a feature called 'Snap, Crackle...Drop' where each week I dig through the sound track to my youth recorded on these prehistoric massive plastic discs we used to called "vinyl".

    This week I selected one of the really early hardcore rave / jungle tracks from Kickin' Tunes, called "The Bee"!! Dubby and dark, this track really showed all the elements of dub, and ragga that formed this early sound. Not an instant classic this week, I'll admit, but a very important staple in the scene back in the day!! Great artwork too!!!

    And don't forget to listen to the show!

      This post discusses sexual assault. 

      LA producer The Gaslamp Killer has been pulled from Australia’s Let Them Eat Cake and Breakfest line-ups after being accused of raping two women.
      On Friday, Twitter user @chelseaelaynne accused The Gaslamp Killer — real name William Bensussen — of raping herself and her friend in July 2013. Since then, he’s officially “parted ways” with Low End Theory, the legendary Los Angeles party at which Bensussen was a longtime resident, and been booted from the bill of Brooklyn Electronic Music Festival. His former label Brainfeeder have also distanced themselves from Bensussen.
      Now, Australian promoters The Operatives have announced that The Gaslamp Killer will no longer perform at any of his upcoming Australian festival dates at Breakfest, Let Them Eat Cake and Kiwi event Northern Bass.
      “In light of the accusations against The Gaslamp Killer and all it encompasses, we feel that a cancellation of the upcoming tour is currently the only option,” an official statement reads. “Hopefully there will be some clarity on the entire case in the near future, and justice is served in truth. ”
      Bensussen’s alleged victim Chelsea claims that she and a friend met The Gaslamp Killer at a party on the rooftop on the Standard Hotel in Los Angeles on July 5, 2013. She alleges that Bensussen handed the two women drinks she believes were drugged and “after that, everything is pitch black except for a few sharp but at the same time, blurry, memories.”
      “It has taken four years to not blame ourselves and not feel guilty or less than human for it,” she wrote in her statement. “He knows what he did and I’m sure he’s been wondering when this day would come. RaeAn and I have had to deal with the shame for four years, and it’s time he faces it too.”
      In a response on his own Twitter, The Gaslamp Killer denied the allegations against him.

      The dust settled on Burning Man well over a month ago, but there are still plenty of sets emerging from the playa that we have yet to wrap our ears around.
      Diplo and Skrillex’s sets emerged a couple of weeks back, but we had to wait until the latest episode of John Digweed’s Transitions radio show to hear techno don Carl Cox’s Black Rock mix in full. The hour-long mix arrived online a couple of days ago, and it features tracks from Dubfire, Lee Van Dowski, and Bastian Bux.
      Read More Diplo's Burning Man set is online and damn, it's good   Listen the full set below – it starts around the 58-minute mark.
      We’ll get the chance to see the Cox in action soon enough, when he lands down under for a headlining slot at boutique bash Return To Rio. He’ll hit up the festival in early November alongside dance legends like Eric Powell, Fabio & Grooverider, Mr. C, and Berlin’s &ME — you can still get your hands on tickets here.
      If you can’t make that, he’ll be back in February for the latest instalment of Babylon Festival.

      Australia is in the grips of a public health crisis and warehouse parties are to blame. Or at least, that’s what the ABC wants you to think.
      The humble nitrous oxide bulb — also affectionately known as a nang, whippet or bulb — was the subject of no less than three stories by the ABC yesterday. For those unfamiliar, nitrous oxide is an anaesthetic commonly used by dentists and available commercially for use making whipped cream; inhaling the gas results in a 20-second high. They’re sold freely at supermarkets and corner stores.
      Most injuries from gas bulbs use largely stem from people falling over under the influence or damaging their lungs by trying to inhale the compressed gas. But according to the ABC, recreational use of nangs is “back with a vengeance” and “a critical public health concern” that’s causing nerve and brain damage in users.
      The ABC explains
      In a report aired on 7.30 and an accompanying online article, the ABC fearlessly broke the news that nangs aren’t actually good for you (who’da thunk it?) — featuring the story of a student who sustained nerve damage from inhaling 360 nangs a week (?!), and interviewing a doctor about on 20-year-old patient whose brain had “the same level of damage as an alcoholic who had been drinking for 40 years”.
      They report that nang use has spiked over the last two years and that the Westmead Hospital’s Poisons Information Centre has seen a “doubling” in calls relating to nitrous oxide exposure. Nangs can cause death, but the ABC concede it’s rare — since 2010 there have only been two recorded deaths from recreational nitrous oxide use in Australia.
      To really drive the hysteria home, the ABC also ran a story infiltrating a recent warehouse party from techno savants Motorik.
      The reporter described seeing party-goers suck nitrous oxide out of balloons — a sight so shocking the ABC contacted Motorik head honcho and former Bang Gang identity Angus Gruzman for comment. The response they got back will go down as one of the greatest moments in local dance music history: “Have a nice life you loser,” Gruzman replied.
      Unsurprisingly, the internet’s reaction to the ABC’s reports has been pretty much this:


      Of course, this isn’t the first time the mainstream media has tried to whip up hysteria over nang use. In 2015, the Sydney Morning Herald reported that nitrous oxide use was “on the rise”. Then Channel 7 branded it the “frightening” new drug craze at dance parties and music festivals.
      You can probably expect this moral panic to resurface in another couple of years — until then, call us when this country decides to do something about pill testing.

      Through his opening of GO Music this month, Giuseppe Ottaviani turns the page, to usher in a new chapter in his label history. This particular imprint however comes with a mandate that’s as personally challenging as it is formidable for the Italian.
      Since 2.0’s debut release (“Musica”, back in 2015), in-club, Giuseppe has involved thousands upon thousands of electronic music lovers in his live creation production process. Every three months he will foster another club-originating track through to release-fruition via the label.
      Game-on for GO Music – the first of those arrives today…
      Additionally, during its non-2.0 release months, the label will also house tracks by producers who’ve received a personal invite from Giuseppe himself. This, Ottaviani envisages, will build a strong discography of exclusive tracks by industry peers and rising talents for GO Music.
      “Lumina” – the label’s 001 debut – gleamed into first existence during Giuseppe’s 2.0 set at the Subculture night in Melbourne back in April. Over the summer he took that musical kernel and cultivated it into a polished, sleek club-floor missile! Its bass charge amplified, the synths honed and its arrangement now every bit as fluid as it is pristine, the fully realised “Lumina” strikes today.

      Throughout 2017, their ascension towards the forefront of trance music’s next generation has been relentless, and the brotherly duo of Arkham Knights is set to release arguably its most anticipated creation to date. Much like their humble nature, they obey the fitting title of “Gravity”.
      Harnessing their experiences amassed through their performances at Coldharbour Nights staged at hallowed venues such as Avalon in Los Angeles, Ben and Stuart Turner’s growth has been a stamp of pride for label owner Markus Schulz. No sooner had the dust settled on their “State of Mind EP”, which lit up Coldharbour throughout the summer, that a mysterious ID became the beacon of attraction throughout Global DJ Broadcast and World Tour events.
      Tried and trusted in the biggest of settings, from Tomorrowland to Dreamstate, it will be an essential on the playlist as Amsterdam Dance Event approaches.
      And as the Turner brothers proudly take to the stage for their Coldharbour Night at the heralded Ministry of Sound in London this November, “Gravity” will be the call to salute them.
