It’s been a few months since I cracked out a ‘Dub Buzz’, a short list of my favourite unreleased, unsigned tracks I’ve come across courtesy of Soundcloud over the last couple of weeks or so. So here’s ten tracks that must see the light of day soon.
Pharma – Ghost & Ghouls
Pharma displays more of his murky, ghoulish sounds on this latest cut, ‘Ghost & Ghouls‘, perfect for this time of year. With this one, the Austrian producer shows there’s plenty more in the bag following releases on Locus Sound (LOCUS010) and Instigate Recordings (INSTi020) earlier this year.
Tetrad – Outpost 31
Although Tetrad‘s tunes seem few and far between at times, when he does bring forth new material you know it’s going to be special, proving it’s always about the quality over quantity. Tetrad‘s ‘Outpost 31‘ is another dark slammer from the LA producer that, as noted, will not feature on his forthcoming album. But if this teasing clip is anything to go by, we can absolutely look forward to a heavyweight LP in the near future.
Chokez – Reeds
Another producer who clearly focuses on quality over quantity is Bristol’s Chokez. In terms of solo releases, his catalogue is looking a little light. But who can forget about the classic ENV015 with Samba? With this latest upload ‘Reeds’, Chokez flexes his fresh addictive sounds showing us why it’s a matter of not if, but when he will feature on more top end imprints.
Ternion Sound – Lost Dub VIP
It’s not difficult to work out why American trio Ternion Sound are considered one of the best in the game right now. Tune after tune, banger after banger, every one is knockout. For example, here’s a stonking VIP of the already mammoth ‘Lost Dub‘ to satisfy our Ternion addiction.
Lord Jabu – Cake
It wasn’t long ago since Lord Jabu‘s dazzling sounds landed on Albion Collective, creating his finest release so far. His mostly light hearted, vibrant style shines through again on his latest upload ‘Cake‘. Demonstrating more ingenious vocal samples, cut to perfection.
Hebbe – Sober
Like Ternion Sound, you’ve got to put Hebbe in the league of producers that churn out fire each and every time. Hebbe‘s latest dub comes in the form of ‘Sober‘. Yet another hefty foundation shaking tune destined to make an impact in any dance and on any lucky label.
Mani – Morbid Liar
If you’re still not familiar with Berlin’s Mani, then now’s the time. Although there are no significant releases from him currently, it’s only a matter of time when his churlish menacing productions will find its way onto a forward-thinking label. ‘Morbid Liar’ is just a taster of Mani‘s demonic creations.
Scarz – Obscura
Scarz made his presence known earlier this year upon the release of his first EP on Cue Line Records with the other worldly sounds of ‘Saucer Dub‘ EP. There’s been no stopping him since with regular uploads from the Frenchman landing on my feed. ‘Obscura‘ is the latest expression of Scarz‘s weird and wonderful sounds.
Woven Thorns – Divine Violence
With a recent alias change, Woven Thorns re-enters the game as fresh as ever, with a new dark energy to unleash upon the masses. ‘Divine Violence’ delivers that energy by the bucket loads. Dark, ferocious and clean. As with her previous alias, each tune is as heavy as the last and continues to innovate, leaving an appetite for more.
HØST – For We Are Many
This one is a bit different in comparison to the previous tracks but to finish, check out genre blurring producer HOST and this latest cut to land on his SC feed ‘For We Are Many‘. It’s definitely high up on the experimental end of his spectrum, structurally unique compared to anything I’ve heard from the him before, but his multi-genre influences still cut through.
Edit: There’s an even more recent track from HOST now on his feed entitled ‘1995’. Definitely worth checking out also.
