This months Podcast is by SKMA..... A Drum & Bass production & DJ trio from Jersey.

Eight years together have resulted in multiple releases including several E.P’s, singles and a string of devastating remixes through their longstanding alliance with London based label Sub Slayers, which has earned them airtime on BBC Radio 1 and DJ sets on Kiss FM & Kool London.

2016 also see’s their first outing on the legendary Technique Recordings, home of the mighty Drumsound & Bassline Smith.

Over the last few years the trio’s studio productions have been gaining DJ & radio support from key scene figures like Rene La Vice, Dub Phizix, Optiv, Ray Keith, Black Sun Empire, Charlie Tee, Technimatic, & B Traits as well as gaining recognition from leading UK platforms Mixmag, DJ Mag and Bass Music Movement. They were also nominated for Best Newcomer Producer at the 2015 Bass Music Awards alongside LSB, Joe Ford and eventual category winner, Ownglow.

Coming from a background of 90’s jungle and hardcore and with a strong passion for current cutting edge vibes, their intense and high energy DJ sets which leave no area of the genre unturned have seen them perform at seminal clubs across the UK such as Rhythm Factory, Heaven, Motion Bristol, The Cavern, Custard Factory and the one and only Glade Festival.

Episode 47 -Feb 2016 - Technique Podcast Mixed By Gradual

As drum and bass made deeper inroads into the sunlit land of daytime radio and mainstream acceptance in 2015, the underground scene was defined by the dark and technical sound of neurofunk. And repping that style for Technique are one of their most recent signings, the Spanish production team made up of veterans Alerstorm and Ice Stereo, a team now known as Gradual. If you haven't caught up with Gradual's movements yet, this is where to get on board. Their next release shows just a few of the facets that these guys can bring to their sound. Along with the cold scientific studio skills, they've got a raw funky rhythmic sensibility, adding up to a clear understanding of how to keep raves electrified. They've got a lot more to show off, so better pay attention.

Episode 46 -Jan 2016 - Technique Podcast Mixed By Document One

It hasn't taken long for Document One to define their own niche among the Technique Recordings roster. Brimming with multi-genre experience, this team has come well-equipped with a fresh and clean production style, overt musicality and uncompromising levels of funk. This month ahead of their new single release, the boys take over the Technique Podcast & deliver a cracking mix.......

Small steps - Document one 

Snitch - L Plus 

The truth - Drumsound & Bassline smith 

Panzer - Dimension 

Shadows - Tantrum desire & Matrix & Futurebound 

Rush connection - Culture shock 

Oblivion VIP - Tantrum desire 

Jazz club - Document one 

Ladies night - Drumsound & Bassline smith VIP

Times - Baskerville (Document one remix) 

Obsolete VIP - Quadrant, Kid Hops & Iris

AM PM - Ekko & Sidetrack 

Bail out - Digital vs Drumsound & Bassline smith 

Warning - Dub motion 

Forex - Ivy lab 

Body like wow - Document one 

WTF - Smooth 

Troglodyte VIP - Culture shock 

I gota fever - Document one 

Human mind - Tantrum desire 

Run the block - Document one 

“Run the Block” takes the tough but smoky sound that Document One has made their own and adds a layer of East Coast hip-hop flavour. The rap-along vocal, that trademark upright and synthetic bass fusion, the popping drums and live-instrument arrangement combine to give this tune jazzfunk energy in abundance. Then “Small Steps” flips the script, darkening things up in a way you might not be expecting from these guys. The intro is the sound of approaching menace, as military drums and an eerie dialogue sample ratched up the tension. Then the drop is all about those twisted tendrils of bass, snaking around techstep drums and ghost-in-the-machine stabs. This is what happens when musicality meets aggression on a hell-bent mission to mash up the rave. So, this release proves that Document One have a love and talent for all sides of this music. As their track titles declare, they “Run the Block” in the funk neighbourhood and they're making “Small Steps” into the shadowy technoid realm. Now they've shown they can kill the dance in both, it's clear the Document One operation doesn't believe in boundaries.

The drum and bass scene is looking strong. From the sweaty recesses of the grimiest jump-up raves to chart-topping, ad-soundtracking mainstream acceptance, 2015 has shown that this music has the full spectrum covered. And Technique Recordings, as always, has been up there at the forefront of the movement. This compilation, drawn from Technique's releases over the year, is here to confirm that point.

As you'd expect, the veteran artists are representing in force. The mighty Tantrum Desire is a consistent presence showing off multiple facets of their anthemic sound, with tracks like “Sea Breeze” and “Oblivion”, plus quirkier offerings like the stripped-back DJ weapon “Pump”. And of course, their huge collaborations with Matrix & Futurebound and Drumsound & Bassline Smith are here too. Talking of the label bosses, they haven't held back on their contributions either, treating us to the euphoria of “I Need Somebody”, the filth of “Spring Heel Jack” and plenty more besides. All that before we even get into the floor-filling monsters provided by the likes of L Plus, Crissy Criss and MaxNRG.

Alongside those battle-hardened Technique warriors are newer recruits to the team. Document One have made a huge impact this year and the soulful vibe and dancefloor energy of tracks like “Follow Me” and “Jazz Club” demonstrate why. Aussie representative Spectrem brings some melodic jungle sensibilities to the album with “Say Goodbye”, while Erb N Dub & Skope deliver something powerfuly individual with “Drummer”. Neuro-specialists Gradual and big-room filler Kronology each deliver a couple of heavyweight pieces to cement their status too.

Then there are those artists whose names you might not instantly associate with Technique. Brian Brainstorm drops some full-on break-twisting jungle with “Pon Di Streets”, for example. Melinki and North Base take us back to the sunshine with “Summer Solstice” and “Bikini Dance”, and even the legends Digital and Decoder & Substance grace us with their presence.

Like the drum and bass scene as a whole, this compilation has flavours in abundance. As a marker of the work Technique's put in this year, bringing through new artists, showing off the best of established ones and delivering a rarely-paralleled variety of D&B styles, this delivers on all counts. The only thing left to the imagination is the question of how this can possibly be equalled in 2016. Better strap in for the ride.


Enjoy!!!!!!!
