Been away a while… So here’s a mix!

So, I’ve been away for a while… over two years, really. Life is weird, right?

But I’ve still been keeping up with tunes and mixing and gigging from time to time.
There’s even been talk of bringing Revival Radio back in some shape or form, for all my Bassdrive heads out there. No promises, but you never know.

Anyway, I got hit up to do a mix for Alpha Rhythm last month, and I wound up being really pleased with a (somewhat inebriated) Sunday evening mix session… Appropriately named “Drinks At Sunset,” it’s got a ‘chill out, but still bounce around’ type of vibe.

NEW Studio Mixes and Archives from SP!

Attention Messengers!

Just because Subliminal Messages isn’t broadcasting currently, don’t think SP has been out of the game… Quite the opposite, actually.

This month alone, he’s dropped 2 new studio mixes and announced some forthcoming music. Plus, he’s still doing Revival Radio every 2 weeks on Bassdrive, and just opened a new Mixcloud page for the Revival Radio archives!

Methodus b2b SP ft. Diggadee MC @ Bassdrive Sessions Miami [LIVE Mix]

So, SP is off this week… he’s heading to Orlando with Methodus to hit up Dub Factory (and we hear that he’ll be spending some time with the world’s most famous mouse as well), so he’s got something special to share with you. We’ll let him describe it:

This night was probably the highlight of my DJ career thus far. WMC is always a great time – with good people and good music – but this year was really something special. I played dubstep at the 10th Anniversary of Future Sound of Breaks of Friday night, and Bassdrive Sessions Miami on Saturday. And yes, both parties were great events, but Bassdrive took the cake for me. The people, the vibe and the energy at Jazid were spectacular… and I always love playing back to back with Jon (Methodus), but to open for the Godfather of drum & bass – Goldie – was a privilege and an honor. There was just something about this set and the night in general – Jon and I both agree – that was just really special…

With that, we present to you: Methodus & SP back to back, featuring Diggadee MC, LIVE from Bassdrive Sessions Miami 2012!

Happy Halloween!

Halloween is one of those holidays that the music scene has really taken an affinity to… we know, because of the enormous amount of music that comes out around Halloween, let alone the number of Halloween-themed songs making the rounds, are enormous. Today being the most spooky day of the year, we thought it’d be nice to share some of the more recent creepy, crawly, sinister and scary releases with you – including some of the free give-aways and LPs/EPs available for purchase.

First and foremost is one of our favorite new producers, Figure. In-time for the holiday, he released part 2 of his Monsters of Drumstep series, which includes some seriously sick takes on some of the most classic Halloween themes and films, and features remixes from a few of today’s hottest producers.

And to promote the release, Mad Decent stepped in and let Figure smash the decks for a special promo mix as well.

And even better than that, Figure’s been kind enough to drop a ton of free Halloween-inspired tunes!

Figure’s first Monsters of Drumstep EP was released on Reid Speed’s PLAY ME 2 label, who also just released their new Horrors Of Halloween EP (Beatport link), with tracks from Devin Martin, Dirty Talk, Run DMT, Drop Goblin and Dirt Monkey.

Another label getting in on the action is Faust & Shortee’s Heavy Artillery Recordings. Producing under the Urban Assault moniker, Faust & Shortee gave away this little gem simply entitled Halloween.

Of course, we wouldn’t be doing our jobs if we didn’t self-promote! SP’s newest contribution to his ongoing list of mixes is entitled NO ESCAPE!, and features some seriously heavy, demented and Halloween-themed dubstep (and a touch of drumstep thrown in for good measure).

Enjoy the music, support the artists… And have a happy (and safe!) Halloween!
