XLR8R Podcast 351: Fracture

After nearly a decade in dance music purgatory, drum & bass and jungle have gradually worked their way back into the spotlight. Throughout this process, few labels have proven more reliable than dBridge's Exit Records, and the imprint's latest offering, the Loving Touch EP, comes from Fracture (a.k.a. Charlie Fieber), a veteran UK producer who also heads up a quality imprint of his own, Astrophonica, with partner and frequent collaborator Neptune. On the record's title track, Fracture flips Ralphi Rosario's and Xavier Gold's house classic "You Used to Hold Me" into a hyperkinetic piece of drum & bass, while the remainder of the EP finds him working bits of footwork, grime, hip-hop, and dubstep into a jungle template. On a basic level, this sort of hybridization and creativity is at least partially responsible for the revitalization of drum & bass, and hearing these tunes left us curious about how the approach would work in an elongated format. As such, we invited Fracture to put together an exclusive mix for the XLR8R podcast series.

Right off the bat, the mix is brimming with energy. Drum & bass is a naturally hyperactive sound to begin with, but when infused with low-end-heavy blasts and frequent rhythmic change-ups, the music takes on a whole new vibrance. Over the course of nearly an hour, Fracture employs many of his own tracks—although many of these numbers are collaborative—but he also enlists the talents of like-minded jungle experimenters like Om Unit, DJ Spinn, and Addison Groove. It's not a session for the faint of heart.

Track list:

01 Taso "Lose You"
02 MP ­"U Dont Know Me" (MP)
03 Addison Groove "Masamune" (50Weapons)
04 Fracture "Bump 2 Dis"
05 Om Unit "Nuff Music (feat. Moresounds)" (Cosmic Bridge)
06 DJ Spinn "Dubby"
07 Fracture "Dead and Bury (feat. Moresounds)" (Astrophonica)
08 Fracture "Jam #1 (feat. DJ Spinn & Taso)"
09 DJ Monita "Luv Ta Luv Ya (Fracture's Astrophonica Remix)" (Skeleton)
10 Kid Lib "Soundmove" (Green Bay Wax)
11 Fracture "Loving Touch" ­(Exit)
12 Fracture "Back It Up (feat. Sam Binga & Rider Shafique)" (Astrophonica)
13 Fracture ­"Grippin' Grain (feat. Sam Binga)" ­(Exit)
14 Fracture "From Early (feat. Chimpo) (Fracture's Reduction Mix)" (Metalheadz)
15 Moresounds "Pure Niceness" (Astrophonica)
16 Overlook "Empires"
17 Great Dane "Invite Only" (Alpha Pup)
18 Fracture "She Want It Ruff (feat. Sam Binga & Rider Shafique)" (Astrophonica)
19 Fracture "Whatever (feat. Neptune)" (Astrophonica)

FACT mix 450 - Stacey Pullen (July '14)

One of the key figures of Detroit techno’s second wave steps up on this week’s FACT mix. First under aliases like Bango and Kosmik Messenger then under his birth name, Stacey Pullen spent the 1990s helping to both continue the legacy of his friend and collaborator Derrick May’s generation, while also opening it up to influences like broken beat. Although he was at his most prolific in the ’90s, Pullen still regularly releases music and runs his own label, Blackflag.

Despite being an established producer, Pullen’s reputation as a DJ is just as strong. Unlike some of his peers, he’s not spent his later years developing a ludicrous live show or resting on his morals; rather, he still plays it raw, hard and soulful.

Track list:

Roberto Clementi – Lei [Soma]
Werner Niedermeier – Subconscious Emotion [Ayeko]
Joor Ghen – Organic (Original Mix) [Serkal]
Reset Robot – The Birth Of Terry Burrows (Original Mix) [Truesoul]
Matrixxman – The Spell (Phil Kieran Remix) [Kraftwerk]
Melokolektiv – Ascension (David K Remix) [Recovery Tech]
Ellroy – Whatcha Gonna Do (Original Mix) [Expectancy]

Utah Jazz - FABRICLIVE Promo Mix (July 2014)

Drum and Bass has probably been around since around 1993, give or take, depending on where you stand on the ‘is it jungle, is it drum and bass?’ debate.

Paradox has been releasing vinyl since 1992 under his Mixrace (alongside DJ Trax), Brown Assassin and Paradox monikers. This makes Dev Paradox an essential part of drum and bass and jungle music, and he’s been on the cutting edge of it all since then – even if the kids just started stealing his hairstyle ideas now!

SUN AND BASS Podcast #26 comes from the man himself, and put together in his own inimitable hosting style, he educates us on the music and airs some of the finest cuts currently around, yet as per usual, never with any arrogance or elitism.

Check this podcast if you want to know about the best drum and bass has to offer right now – you’re going to enjoy it.
