baze.djunkiii Charts 05/2011

01. Tropic Of Cancer - Be Brave [Downwards 008]
Limited and numbered clear vinyl 10" that can be filed under the flag of feedback driven DroneWave melancholia. Flipside features a great hypnotizing instrumental remix provided by Richard H. Kirk that truely can be referred to as his best work in ages. Gonna be a sought after item soon.

02. Tyree - Nuthin Wrong [Mojuba Underground Series 001]
Classic House music gem originally released via Dancemania in 1995 and now put back on the circuit via Mojuba. Raw, anthemic and timeless so it perfectly fits in to any contemporary DJ-set still. All those up for some experimental beat wizzardy and strange effects are recommended to check out the inside out cut "Ron Hardy Dedication Side" which sees the whole track running backwards.

03. Shy FX feat Donae'o - Raver [Digital Soundboy 036]
Honestly, I don't feel or purchase much of today's Drum'n'Bass no more as I haven't seen much new or interesting happening in this genre since about 2005 but I always check out new releases coming up on Digital Soundboy as this label seems to have a different approach and doesn't seem to care about whether it's releases are dancefloor fitting or not. And this is the first one that really got me - not only for being a 10". "Shy's Guinness Punch Mix" is a classic DubHouse meets Lovers Rock crossover tune that is about to set any Reggae dance on fire whilst "Breakage Pattern Moschino Remix" on the flip brings back the classic Jungle flavor and will be loved by all Drum'n'Bass-heads that've been around since day dot.

04. Lightbluemover feat. Black Light Smoke [Hafendisko 001 Promo]

05. Dao De Noize / Sascha Müller / Syrinx - Split [ Dark Meadow Recordings Promo]

06. Vincenzo - Whereever I Lay My Head [Dessous Recordings Promo]

07. Om Unit - The Timps [Civil Music 019]
Classic Electro music seems to be on the up and up again after years and years of virtually radio silence but now there's more and more releases to be found in the shelves of your local recordstore that refer to the cold "boom-tschak"-beat rather than to the ever present 4-2-the-floor. This might have to do with the discovery of Juke by a bunch of Dubstep-/Bass Music-producers but no matter what has been the trigger as long as releases are as good as this four tracker I hope there's more to come. Om Unit are coming up with a clean, cold, sci-fi'esque and 'troity sound that is about to please all true Electro headz out there. Plus: with the so-called "Salva Remix" of "Prawn Cocktail" they even manage to create a Dubstep-tune with an electroid feel.

08. Alex Niggemann - Lately [Poker Flat Recordings 119 Promo]

09. The Crystal Apes - Remixes & Versions EP Vol.1 [TCARMX 001]
This one has been in the making for quite a while and finally has been released digitally and as a limited CD-edition of 100 copies which will be available only at The Crystal Apes shows, via their website, at BETA-ZERFALL shows and - on request - via Hamburg's finest record store Otaku Records. This one features two remixes by baze.djunkiii which have already been introduced as dubplate cuts in baze.djunkiii's charts 04/2011.

10. Shifted - Reach [Syndrome Z 002]
Two deep, dark and Dub-influenced tunes om the A-side which are about to be appreciated by all those following labels like Stroboscopic Artefacts and the likes of but the most exciting tune is Szare's rework of the title track featured on the flip which has to be filed as the most thrilling piece of Broken Techno that has been released for months.
