I’ll tell you why you should care…
1) This track BANGS overall by itself. The dynamics hit you on many different frequencies.
2) There is an instrumental breakdown in the middle that really lets you know they are Taking No Prisoners!
3) 3D?!? This video can be viewed in 3D! at the following URL www.symbiz-sound.de/3-d
I bet you wish you had saved those Cyan/Red glasses now.
Sabbo is an extremely talented producer from the Soulico crew out of Tel-Aviv. Last summer we journeyed to the Wailing Wall together in Jerusalem. I don’t know what he prayed for, but he has certainly been killing sound ever since. Here is another Sabbo release on the (hot like fiyaah) Generation Bass label. This one is a Moombahton release, like much of the new music coming out.
Music fans: This is an official view of the cutting edge.
I have not written extensively about Moombahton and its related genres, simply because it is in a constant state of mutation. The minute you try to pin down something about it, the core of producers responsible for its creation have moved on. Moombahton is something that is truly organic, collaborative and unfolding as we speak. Somewhere at the center of it all are names like Munchi, Dave Nada, Sabbo, SaBo, Caballo, Sarah Young and Neki Stranac.
There are few folks working as diligently, not to mention irreverently, to push fresh bass music ethos as Chicago-based producer, dj, radio host, and educator Ryan Searchl1te. The good folks at Dubscription caught up with him for a chat about bent circuits, neck tattoos, and low-frequency mayhem.
Searchl1te is giving away a tune from the forthcoming Antoine’s Cigar Box EP for a limited time. Grab it, share it, show your support by leaving a comment on Soundcloud…
I know it seems like I am just hanging out and going to movies all summer…. well truthfully that IS what I am doing.lol
I have also been recording like nobody’s business, even trying to tackle an Afro Beat track. Not knowing terribly much about it, I did what any child of technology would do. I hit YouTube and Google.
One of the things that really pisses me off about MYSELF… is that when Fela died in 1997, I had no idea of his full impact. Understandably, I and the rest of the world was still reeling from the whole Biggie/Tupac thing. Plus you know… American consumerism and all that, which is probably why I find myself in movies every damn week lately.
I now know a bit about Afro Beat / Afro Pop, with its characteristic African Pidgin, Double bass saxaphones, and absolutely improvisational verse structure. Before I actually hit the record button, I want to feel like I am coming from a true place, knowing which rules I can break to make a song my own ) Anyway I hope to do the Afro Beat thing justice.. I’ll keep you posted.
That is by far the wordiest song I think I have ever written. It really makes me happy tho, to see how many people like it. I owe it to you guys for putting it in the Beatport top 30. It’s in the breaks category, but hell.. That’s the breaks.. Right? (bad joke)
It has also come to my attention that what I wrote as a quasi-political anthem,
… is commonly mistaken for a sexual declaration.
Well, raise your glasses to subjective interpretation.
Before we go… Let me also highlight what I see as the BEST SONG on this album
Track #6 Check the VIBES of the one Delhi Sulthanate!
Liquid Stranger seeks to make noise on the Dub/Reggae side of things with The Arcane Terrain. It will be released on Interchill Records.
The reason I am thrilled is because it puts me on the same release as one of my heroes KRS One..!! His interpretations of Reggae Music from the Hip-Hop perspective go a long way in validating my take on the genre.
Here is a mix Stranger put together for the promotion of the album.
From DimSummer’s massive “Sub Continental Bass” album comes my first recognition on a “Breaks” chart. As much as I am a proponent of mixing the vibes with all dance-related music, I never thought the breaks category would show any recognition. Who knew? Well we debuted at #45 Breaks and peaked at #30.
South Asian mega-producer Dim Summer starts the summer off with a truly EPIC compilation. It plays on the correlation between ancient Indian texts, and what may appear to be… ancient aliens.
Read the tags below! Check the sounds! Super space-age business.

FACT: Between the late Bronze & Iron Ages (1500-1000 BCE) ancient Sanskrit texts “not of human agency” detailed great aerial battles between the Gods using other-worldly vehicles and weapons on the sub-continent of India. These aerial ships were called Vimanas.
VIMANA: “…a chariot of the gods, any mythical self-moving aerial car (sometimes serving as a seat or throne, sometimes selfmoving and carrying its occupant through the air; other descriptions make the Vimana more like a house or palace, and one kind is said to be seven stories high.”
