XLR8R Podcast 257: Jon Convex

Whether it's fair or not, Jon Convex is probably best known as "the other guy from Instra:mental." To be certain, his former production partner Boddika has snagged a lot of headlines over the past year or so, but Convex hasn't exactly been a slouch. Building upon the stripped-down, electro-flavored rhythms that powered the final Instra:mental album, Resolution 653, Convex has been releasing a stready stream of bass-loaded, robotic funk workouts on labels such as [NakedLunch] and 3024. Next week, he'll be releasing his debut solo LP, Idoru, on his own Convex Industries imprint, so we've invited him to put together an exclusive mix for the XLR8R podcast series to help commemorate the occasion. Interestingly enough, the hour-long session largely finds Convex going a bit deeper and operating comfortably within a more house- and techno-oriented framework, dropping cuts from the likes of heavyweights such as John Tejada, Maceo Plex, and Shed (under his Traveller guise). Make no mistake, Convex definitely flashes some acid crunch and low-end heft here, but he's a veteran artist, and as such, knows how to craft a compelling listen without constantly slamming his foot on the throttle.

Track list:

01 Unknown "Untitled"
02 Alex Smoke "Make My Day (Lusine Remix)" (Soma)
03 Mesak "Echos Bones" (Klakson)
04 Lusine "Sunset" (Ghostly)
05 Uner "Lapan To" (C├ęcille)

11 Maetrik "Envy" (Dumb Unit)
12 Jon Convex "Aversion" (Convex Industries)
13 Femme En Fourrure "2003" (Convex Industries)
14 Jon Convex "Four Faces" (Convex Industries)
15 Accent "DX Jam"
16 Jon Convex "What I Need (feat. Velvit)" (Convex Industries)
17 Good Guy Mikesh "Spare (Axel Boman Remix)" (Ki)
18 Maceo Plex "Your Style" (Crosstown Rebels)
19 The Traveller "A100" (Ostgut Ton)

RA.EX104 - Doc Scott

The drum and bass legend talks about Music House, Blue Note and more. Doc Scott is a drum & bass legend. With tracks on Reinforced and Metalheadz like "Here Comes The Drumz" and "Shadowboxing," his name ranks among the Goldies and the 4Heros of the world. But hear him tell it, and he's a DJ first and foremost. And that's exactly what he's focused the majority of his attention on throughout his career, spreading the gospel of drum & bass—even when the minimal, rolling style that he is often associated with has fallen out of mainstream favor. Resident Advisor talked earlier this month at his home in Coventry about hallowed institutions like The Music House, where Scott cut his dubs, and The Blue Note, where he had some of his best nights out as a DJ and punter in the '90s at the Metalheadz Sunday Sessions.
