SPECIAL GUEST MIX: Datapusher- Dubventure II 070208

Datapusher_Dubventure2_070208

Well it looks like Datapusher over at Trans:verse Records must have enjoyed slowing down the tempo on his decks for the “Chill With The Chola” podcast because he has sent over a sequel to his Dubventure downtempo mix! This works out perfect for me because I would have really been pushing things to try to get a new podcast out by the ninth. Keep your eyes open for a set mid month by “yours truly,” I will try my best to deliver one to you. If not, I will see you next month. 😉

This month’s downtempo podcast is the second installment of Datapusher’s wildly popular “Dubventure.” There was a huge response to the first episode and I am glad that Datapusher has decided to put together another mix for us. It is another hard-hitting, IDM/ Electronica, bass heavy, intelligent-glitch experiment in to the world below 130bpm’s.

When I asked Datapusher to explain what he was shooting for with this set, he responded…

“I was shooting with a ’12 gauge pump action’ for bass heavy, mid tempo breaks tracks, bridging the gap between downtempo and bassline style breaks.”

Well, I would say that he has certainly accomplished that!

This set reminds me of those “eyes-half-opened” after-parties spent in dark dens after a full night of clubbing. It is a moody journey in to the sofa surfing universe.

Somewhere between full blown breaks or house music, and, what we might consider “downtempo,” there is an extremely intelligent sub-genre of music created almost exclusively for “the transition.” This music is not quite the club music that you were dancing to earlier in the evening, or, the more acoustic sub-genres of downtempo/ chillout that you want to enjoy when you awake, have a beer, and start that BBQ on a Sunday. However, it certainly serves a distinct purpose and there are some amazing artists working in this realm.

This is a sub-genre of downtempo music that I hardly touch these days. Datapusher can still rock the dance floors, I stick to playing sets for the couches, dinners, and bedrooms. 🙂

Datapusher starts his set off with an extremely “busy” set of tracks and slowly moves you towards a calmer place. When the set ends, the stereo almost begs you to wake up, put on some bossa, nujazz, or funk, and, get that BBQ started. Great job Datapusher!

Enjoy,
Chola

SPECIAL GUEST MIX: Datapusher- Dubventure 05-15-08

Datapusher_Dubventure

This month I am kicking off a new idea for the “Chill with The Chola” podcast, an exclusive mix by a guest DJ released mid-month! While I do not plan for this to be a consistent thing, from time to time, I would like to feature guest DJ’s by posting their mixes between regular episodes of the podcast.

To get things started, my good friend Datapusher from Trans:verse Records and NuBreaks.com has dialed down the typical tempo on his decks to bring us an exclusive downtempo mix that he recorded live! As the title suggests, his set is an adventure in Dub, is beat driven, glitchy but intelligent, and bass HEAVY. This is something completely new for this podcast!

Datapusher can be heard live online every Thursday from 8pm-10pm Eastern on NuBreaks.com and he also produces a podcast at http://datapusher.podomatic.com. Be sure to check him out!

I’d like to send a special thanks out to Datapusher for taking the time to put this mix together!

Here is the tracklist…

01. Mr. Projectile– Impossible And Overwhelming
02. Heavyweight Dub Champion– Arrival ft. KRS One (Bassnectar RMX)
03. Bass Clef– The Ballad Of The Broken 606
04. Kraak & Smaak– SqueezeMe (A Skillz Remix)
05. Fort Knox Five– Radio Free DC (Krafty Kuts Mix)
07. Bassnectar– Zigga Zigga
