With a totally tropical taste, my man Sumsin has put socamerenguetek on a blastout – original productions plus, in the mix. Pure party sweat session! Road carnival ride vybz! You can contact an’unexpectacle here to find out about a particular tune or for some ‘pon road party vibes. Listen and download below but here’s what he has to say about this mix of ridiculous rapid riddims:
“Socamerenguetek will keep you for an hour-long, action-packed outing. I got my new vest-top, I got my camel sandals and now it’s time to clip my parts. Prepare a rumboat and ready for go because these are road tunes and you’ll likely get higher.”
Hinting a lil bit at both UK Funky and Bmore, this is sure to bang this Summer and almost certain to be tired by the end of it…

…in the music industry.
Inspired by a copyright discussion in an interview I had today, I remembered the important history lesson from the video above. The second half gives proof as to why loosened copyright laws in music will encourage creativity. Music startups like Mixcloud are at the forefront of a push for increased access to tunes. Increased access is giving listeners a plethora of influences from which to be inspired – heightening the opportunity for originality through variety and assimilation. This is why Laurence Lessig and Creative Commons points to the future. Lessig acolyte – Girl Talk and his pay-what-you-want album Feed the Animals is what pop music should have been since the 80s, were it not for stringent copyright laws:
Yes, the video avoids the UK YooToob ban – because it’s licensed through Creative Commons! Also, go check out (trailer here) the first open source documentary, which is about all of this – RiP: A Remix Manifesto.
The Amen break is still in full effect today, with the big tune of the moment making explicit reference at about 4:10:
Or was that the last moment? Foamo has already given an entirely different take, with a the remix of the remix:

The Bass Has Left The Building is the long-awaited sequel to disrupts Foundation Bit album, which appeared on the wonderful WERK DISCS label in 2007, and turned into one of the classic works of modern bass culture since then.
On this new epic voyage Disrupt is pushing the genre boundaries of 8Bit-ChipHop, roots Dub and old-school gaming soundtracks into one big swirling Black Hole of low end mayhem. Raw, ultra-shuffling drum machine action and re-wired skanks create the gateway for a mind bending reference network of retro-SciFi movies, gaming classics and Dub soundscapes in infinite loop mode. All riding on a non-stop wave of subsonic bass blasts to ensure an intense outah space trip for all the 21st Century Planet Smashas out there.
The album comes with awesome bass-artwork by Jimmy Cauty (LC). The vinyl version contains a different cover plus the “Bass City Landscape” from the CD as a huge fold-out. Collectors item!

Inspired by my matey Murkules I’ve been vibein on some Schlachthofbronx. Describing themselves as a cake mixture of “kuduro, uk funky, bassline, dubstep, bootyhouse, miami bass and b-more” – they’ve cooked up a rich sponge of bass and bounce. Be sure to keep yo yeye peel fodem.
And I couldn’t resist envisaging the socasummer to come…
