D&B duo Loadstar offers up tips on production and inspiration

Delivered... Posted by Sean Lewis | Scene,This & That | Wed 29 Aug 2012 9:00 pm

When Xample (aka Gavin Harris) and Lomax (aka Nick Hill) came together to form the duo Loadstar, their first release under their new name, 2010’s “Link To The Past,” became Drum & Bass Arena‘s Best Single Of The Year. The style of bass synth they created even spawned a ton of imitators and elevated their status as leaders in the genre. Their production output has continued at a phenomenal pace, adding chart successes like “Space Between,” “Berlin,” and their latest, “Bomber,” to an amazing catalog.

We checked in with Harris and Hill to gather some production notes on how they keep things sounding so awesome.

Weekend Weapons: Craggz & Parallel

Delivered... Posted by Sean Lewis | Scene | Fri 10 Aug 2012 2:00 pm
Devotees of the D&B scene will surely recognize the names Craggz and Parallel. Over the past 15 years, the two have jointly built a fanatic following, formed their own label (Product Recordings), and landed releases with major drum & bass imprints such as Ram. The pair's first collaborative tune of the year, "Musik," appeared on Hospital’s summer-themed compilation—the aptly titled Summer Drum & Bass 2012—and saw the producers elevated to a new level with a soulful, yet intense roller. With its momentum behind them, the duo just released a new EP, Product Placement, which, across four new tracks, finds them displaying their talents with a couple of proven dancefloor formulas while also leaving enough room to expand on the more experimental paths first explored on 2010's Turn The Page LP. Last year we checked in with Craggz & Parallel for a Weekend Weapons and considering their recent flurry of new work, now seemed like the perfect time for an updated version.

Delivered... Posted by Sean Lewis | Scene | Thu 2 Aug 2012 7:01 am
Breaks, drum & bass, future jungle, electro house, and maybe even a bit of dubstep—the trio of Aquasky has done it all. Since 1995, the guys have been pushing and evolving sounds, even starting two of their own imprints, Passenger and its sub-label 777. They recently released a preview of their upcoming album, Bring The Ruckus, which features collaborations with 601, MadRush, and Black & Blunt… and that's just the sampler.

Track Of The Day: Birdy Nam Nam – Goin’ In (French Fries Remix)

Delivered... Posted by Sean Lewis | Scene | Wed 1 Aug 2012 7:00 pm
Everybody loves French Fries! Tasty morsels, crisped to perfection… Of course, I'm talking about the music of Paris producer and head of ClekClekBoom Recordings. As the world of electronic music pushes boundaries, French Fries is one such producer who strays from the 4/4 kick, bringing in all manner of odd syncopation and regional drum rhythms felt all over the world. His playfulness and command of these rhythms has flexed soundsystems worldwide with tracks like "Champagne" and "Yo Vogue." Now, adding another remix to his resume, Mr. Fries tackles a track on the new release from the equally French DJ group Birdy Nam Nam, this one appearing on Skrillex's imprint OWSLA.
