With that $2 you save, you could buy some condoms..lol..
Here’s what’s being said about it:
“….the nastiness previewed in the minimix plays out to one of the dopest dubstep mixes we’ve ever heard. That’s not hyperbole, that’s the power of transnational musical styles brought together over the one rhythmic style that can hold them all on the same canvas.”
I couldn’t be more stoked about this latest mix. This release is poised to become one of my top releases of 2011 based on how good the teaser for it is. Transnational Dubstep is the first compilation album by DJ Umb and posted up by the online blog Generation Bass. So far, it’s unlike most of the releases I’ve hear this winter mainly due to it’s distinct worldly sounds. Much of it reminds me of the sounds that I often hear in the yoga studio, Indian and Chinese instruments, but here it’s combined with a heavy sub bass and wobble as well as the occasional hip hop drops. Very unique and eclectic for sure.
In the Top 60 Dance/Electronic Releases To Look For In 2011
I set the bar pretty high when it comes to my appreciation of electronic music and am always embarrassingly titillated when I stumble upon something of the caliber which satisfies my demands. Whether it is music or any other form of art, it is the artist’s knowledge of and ability to manipulate their medium that makes for truly cutting edge work.
I’m a big fan of cultural hybridization and this compilation has to be the cutest little mixed-race baby of the underground electronic dance scene.
Even though it’s kind of amazing what people are doing in this scene, I wouldn’t just throw the album for a listen or a car ride. I would, however, go as far as to burn it for a few friends who are hard core dubstep addicts and aficionados.
Transnational Dubstep is manicured to be diverse. Also, it will likely tear through your subwoofer like it’s made of jello. Over top the ultra-low frequency bass lines, different instruments from all areas of the world take turns proving that they fit right in with synth madness. Just identifying all the sounds and styles that come through could fill a book.
Generation Bass is putting out their first compilation consisting of dubstep selections from all around the world. The 15 track hand picked compilation features established producers like the Midival Punditz and the Bandish Project while introducing breaking talent from around the bass music community including Engine Earz, Alexis K, Jajouka Soundsystem, Knowa Knowone, Shem and many more.. Look out for it 2/1/2011. In the meantime check out a remix and mini-mix from the comp below.
You can download a beautiful & exclusive Pan Agnostix Flamenco remix of the excellent Fleck & Fish Finger track, the original version of which appears on the compilation:
You can hear the mini-mix…ahhhhh…. again!..lol..
