Exclusive Interview : Boston – Symmetry Recordings.

Jack Boston DJ/Producer signed to Symmetry Recordings is one talented young man.

 

Jack was born in Cardiff Wales.

 

Jack Bostons blend of soulful beats are apparent on all his releases.

 

Jack Bostons knowledge of music and experimental production has made him gain an head start within D&B.

 

From that day he has been involved with Symmetry Recordings.

 

Jack Boston has a lot of DJ and radio support from the likes of Friction, LTJ Bukem, Lenzman, Break and many more, the future looks very bright for this young male.

 

 

 

Hey Jack great to be interviewing you.

 

Hey Maryanne, thanks for having me!

 

So let’s start right from the beginning.
What was the actual year you began producing?

 

I think it would have been around 2011.

I was in sixth form college doing subjects that were unrelated to music.

It was a group of people I met there that got me into making electronic music.

 

How did you break through with releases on Symmetry?

 

I met Charlie & Isha at a music production seminar in Bristol.

I gave them a CD of my music and I got an email back a week or so later.

I really couldn’t believe what I was seeing when I read the email saying Break liked my tunes and they would like to meet in Bristol.

I really do owe them a lot for taking that first chance with me!

 

 

Did you have releases on any other record labels before then?

 

Nope they were the first label I’d ever released with.

 

Your forthcoming release on Symmetry features a collaboration with Madcap & Vanity Jay.
How did you arrange those collabs?

 

I first reached out to Madcap when I heard his tune ‘Sunset Strip’.

I still play that track on every set!

He very kindly sent it over and we started a conversation from there.

I was sketching out ‘Always There’ and just thought that characteristic Madcap sound would be perfect for it.

He brought some really great vibes to the production.

He’s also such an easy guy to talk to and a real easy going character; exactly what you want in this game!

 

You are very experimental with your production and cover all genres of music.
Do you go under an alias name with other genres of music?

 

At the moment, no.

I’m writing a lot of alternative genres at the moment and I’m still undecided whether to make a new alias for it all.

As you can tell by my current name, I’m not the best at making up Alias’s! haha.

Myself and Quartz have started writing some very experimental music, which I’m loving so no doubt we will come up with a new moniker to release that under soon!

 

Do you see yourself continuing to produce D&B in 5 years time?

 

I’m not sure.

I love writing D&B as the tempo has so much energy and the scene is so cool & unpretentious.

I think it’s the most professionally produced electronic genre and it’s really informed the productions I do today on other genres.

I work at Rockfield studios and I work bands and artists day to day, which I really love doing and will continue for the rest of my career.

I think being involved in both worlds is really beneficial as it gives me a well-rounded view of the industry.

I am definitely able to take lessons and inspiration from electronic and non-electronic genres and make something unique.

As long as it still makes me happy, I will continue to make D&B.

 

Who will you be working with next?

 

Myself and Break started something a while back, which I’m very excited about and I’m currently finalising some vocals with Tenisha Edwards on a new track.

I love collaborating and always keen to work with someone new!

 

Will we be seeing you Djing more sets over the next few months or are you locked down in the studio?

 

I haven’t been playing much this year so far as I’ve been so busy writing the album and producing for bands at the studio.

That said, I recently joined the Soul in Motion booking agency after playing there last week.

I love to travel and share my music with people so I will definitely be taking on more bookings.

 

Of course any special mentions and final words?

 

Shouts to Charlie & Isha for the continued support and guidance.

Everyone who I’ve worked with and everyone who has pre ordered the first single.

Oh and bigups to my Mum x

Exclusive Interview & Guest Mix – MADCAP

MADCAP

Dj/Producer/Remixer from Chinnor, Oxfordshire.

 

Madcap has a long history of providing smooth grooves for our listening pleasure he is one talented man with many releases on record labels listed below.

 

Creative Wax // Good Looking // Smooth n Groove // Phuzion // Mac II // Criminal // Jazzsticks // Fokuz // AKO Beatz // Renegade // Step Back Sessions // Sonata // Celsius // Uncertified Music // Soul Deep // Warehouse Wax // Side Chain // Immerse // Steel Fingers.

 

Also winner of Movement / Technics / DJ Magazine DJ Competition – 2002
Winner of ‘Mix Tape of the Month’ IDJ Magazine – 2004.

 

 

You began Djing many years ago.

What was the actual year and why did you begin Djing?

 

Towards the end of 1992 at the young age of 12.

For the love of the music of course. I was obsessed with early Rave / Hardcore music.

I used to listen to 3rd hand copies of tapes I & was intrigued to why the music continued in the mix & love the scratching from Dj’s like Hype & Sy.

I would learn about the Dj’s through magazines like Eternity & Blaze.

The first parties I ever went to were down at the local youth clubs.

Older DJs in the area would play & I’d be fixated what they were doing & would go home & practice what I witnessed. 

 

Why did you start producing music?

 

I grew up in a very musical household.

My Dad was a singer/songwriter & in the very early days of my life had a studio in our front room.

My Mum is a piano teacher & to this day works at a local school. I never properly learnt to play an instrument, but an old friend was taught by my Mum.

I heard he made beats so we swapped tricks with me teaching him the basics of Djing & in turn him introducing me to producing using a program called Octamed.

We never had anything released but it was a good leaning experience.

I believed it was a natural progression after DJing & took me a number of years to get to the stage of producing tracks on my own & having the confidence to play them to a crowd in a club.

 

For many years now you’ve been releasing your music.

Is there any tune that stands out the most for you and gave you more motivation to keep producing music?

 

It’s probably the first tune I signed to Good Looking called ‘Inflated Tear’ alongside Villem.

Having tunes on this infamous label & support from LTJ Bukem gave me confidence & encouragement.

 

 

You had many DJ residencies at events across the country also promoting events in local towns.

Would you consider residencies and event promotion again or are you more focused on being in the studio?

 

Of course, I would love another residency.

As for promotion, never say never!!!

I did events from the mid 90’s up until a few years ago.

They were great times, but currently I’m focused on DJing, producing & co-running Creative Wax, but if the right opportunity presented itself, I would consider it.

 

You completed remixes of legendary tunes for LTJ Bukem, Nookie / Cloud 9, Tom & Jerry aka 4 Hero & DJ Monita.

 

Including Cloud 9’s Moving Shadow classic ‘You Got Me Burning Up’ & Nookie’s Reinforced release ‘A Drum, A Bass & A Piano’.

 

While remixing those tunes did you feel more pressurised and found the whole process stressful ( as your remixing ultimate classics ) or was it all plain sailing? 

 

It was an honour to remix these tracks, as they were all favs of that golden period of Jungle / D&B.

I don’t really recall feeling major pressure, but I wouldn’t say it was always plain sailing when working on them.

After doing possibly 10 mixdowns of ‘You Got Me Burning Up’ my wife kindly asked me to work on something else for a while. Haha. 

 

Talk us through your studio equipment and how you nail the perfect mix down.

 

I currently use an IMac using Logic X with plug-ins including Native Instruments Komplete, Arturia, Sound Toys & a few more.

I use Soundforge to cut up samples either through the computer or off the Technics 1210’s & run it all through Adam Audio monitors using a Focusrite soundcard.

I also have a Komplete Kontrol Keyboard, Maschine MKII, Mini Korg, Roland TR-8 & TB-03 & couple of pairs of KRK monitors. You can never have enough speakers to test your new tunes on ;)

As for mixdowns, I’m still trying to perfect it & learning all the time. 

 

 

What advice would you give to all those up and coming DJs/Producers?

 

Most importantly do it because you enjoy it.

Study the art & history.

You have to put a lot of time & energy in, so don’t expect overnight success. 

 

Forthcoming releases?

 

An EP due out soon alongside the late great Andy Skopes on Dispatch.

Vinyl due out on Utopia Music.

Break’s Symmetry (alongside Jack Boston).

Forthcoming vinyl due with Randall’s Mac II, Monita’s Skeleton Recordings & Myriad Recordings.

Projects in the making with Soul Deep & Smooth N Groove.

I also a couple of remixes to announce later this year which I’m super excited about.

 

Forthcoming sets?

 

Gigs planned for London, Manchester & Gloucester, keep your eyes peeled for more info.

 

Any special thanks, final words?

 

To my wife Mel & son Flynn, all my family, friends, artists, promoters, label owners & everyone that supports my music, Big love!

Thanks to D+B for the opportunity to do the mix & Q&A.

Introducing : K.I.M – Conjunction Recordings

New D&B Record Label.

 

Conjunction Recordings.

 

You may have seen K.I.M.

 

Female DJ from London U.K on recent event flyers.

 

Also heard a little about her role within Conjunction Recordings.

 

Drum+Basics needed to know more.

 

Here’s a quick interview from K.I.M.

 

DJ K.I.M how many years have you been involved within Drum & Bass?

It was around 98 I began listening to Jungle and Drum ‘n’ Bass initially via radio stations such as Soundz FM, Rude FM and Kool FM.

I then started going to events from around 2001, this gave me the inspiration to start DJing in 2003 as my record collection had grown nicely up to this point.

After submitting some demos, I then had some regular playouts and residencies at local D&B events around Kent and South London (Organised Noize, Social Experiment and Armageddon), from there I went on to play at other events such as Terraforms in Oxford which gave me the chance to promote my name further afield. 

What drew you into the world of Drum & Bass?

I got hooked on the music when listening to radio shows on a regular basis at the end of the nineties when the darker side of the music began to evolve, I was blown away with some of the music being released from producers such as Ed Rush & Optical, Goldie, Klute, Digital and Spirit to name a few.

Then in 2001 when I met my now husband Catalyst .AD.

I started to go to events, seeing D&B live and feeling the music and seeing the crowd reactions and the atmosphere got me addicted to the music completely. Paul then introduced me to UKRumble, an Internet Radio Station where he had a weekly show.

I soon got to see the whole other side of the scene and all the work that went in by the various artists on the station.

I was then given opportunity to host my own weekly show on Wednesdays. 18 Years later we are still in the scene, going to various events like “Middleskool”, “Launch”, “From the Vaults” & “Champion Sounds”. 

You’ve progressed a lot over the last several years and we noticed you have started a record label.

How and why did you start the Conjunction Recordings label?

The idea of a record label was something that Paul had wanted to do for a number of years having released his music on several different labels as part of the duo “Able Danger”.

A few years ago we set up our own studio and felt that it was a good time to make the break and release music ourselves whilst Paul continued to push his own music as a solo artist under the name of Catalyst.AD

There’s many record labels out there pushing underground sound.

How does Conjunction stand from the rest?

Conjunction was set up primarily as a platform for Paul to showcase his own music with various collaborations planned as well as releasing music from new up and coming artists.

Conjunction also is aiming to be a multi genre label so each release will be something different.

You can expect to hear anything from deep, melodic 140 BPM tracks to upfront and hard-hitting drum n bass with a real focus on musicality.

How many releases are you aiming for a year?

The aim of the label is for quality over quantity and we plan to have around 4 releases a year which will mainly be E.P.’s so there will always be a nice selection to choose from.

Also are these releases mainly available on vinyl or digital?

The releases will mainly be digital, with some limited-edition CDs.

Forthcoming Releases?

The next Conjunction release following the “Coming Home” E.P. (out now in all good digital stores!) is pencilled in for the end of the year / early 2020.

This will be another E.P. from Catalyst.AD featuring a new artist who is a well known MC now turned producer – watch this space!!

Forthcoming Events?

At the moment I am just concentrating on promoting the label and producing regular mixes and podcasts.

I have recently played at Middle Skool (shout to Mike Ascension!) and From the Vaults organised by Voice MC and LS Dare.

Final Words?

Thank you to MaryAnne for giving me this opportunity to talk with Drumandbasics.com

A big shout out to my family and of course to my husband Paul (Catalyst.AD) especially for the support he has given me in these 18 years.

Also to my good friends MC Carnage and Skinz (original UK Rumble crew).

Featured Event – DAYLIGHT – Accessible Jungle/Drum & Bass Event for Disabled Adults & Carers.

 

Music venue Omeara are pleased to announce they will host London’s first accessible club event for adults with disabilities and their carers this November.

 

The event, titled ‘Daylight’ is being produced by London-based DJ and mental health volunteer Tony Gurney and will debut with a Jungle and D&B special.

 

“I’m doing it because I couldn’t find anyone else who is.

It’s called Daylight because it’s all about getting humans out of the shadows and into some DAYLIGHT”

( Tonys own words )

 

Tony, who DJs under the name ‘Groover The Barbarian’ and is currently studying electronic music production, lives with both Crohn’s Disease and Fibromyalgia.

 

” In order for someone with disabilities to be able to go to a nightclub for a night time event they have all the challenges of their disability added to all the challenges of the average night out.

 

Anyone who has tried to get a taxi or a night bus at 3-4am knows how difficult it is.

 

Now imagine it’s raining, and the taxi that has turned up is refusing to take you because you’re in a wheelchair and the guy will have to get out of his car.

 

Add in medication timing, steps, drunk people, getting access to toilets and anything else the Universe chucks in and I think you can see why a night out to a club can be a massive challenge for anyone with a disability. “

 

 ( Tonys own words )

 

 

Like many other disabled music fans, Tony also finds the typical nightclub excursion of eight hours plus physically and mentally draining and has to prepare in the days leading up to going to any club.

 

It can affect him in an excess of a week to recover before he feels anywhere near ‘normal’ again.

 

‘Normal’

for Tony is waking up each day in pain and feeling exhausted, plus a hospital appointment most weeks.

 

This is also the case for Drum+Basics very own Manager/Dj.

 

M_A.

 

Mary-Anne also has a Fibromyalgia and sometimes faces the same difficulties.

So here at Drum+Basics we are so happy to be involved.

 

Tony has set up a crowdfunding page in the hope of creating a regular event within London’s clubbing calendar.

Interview & Guest Mix : Enbe – Nu:Generation DnB

Dj Enbe is a male Jump Up DnB Dj / Producer from Leamington Spa is currently bringing new events to Birmingham and is the head honcho of Nu:Generation DnB, a producer and and valued member of Fully Charged performing team.

 

Which consists of myself Enbe, Dutty Mowgli & Mcs Kolapse & Skinn-E.

https://linktr.ee/enbednb

 

We had a quick chat with Enbe to get to know more…

 

 

How long have you been Djing?

Firstly id like to say a massive thank you for this invite to have a chat with yourselves..

Music runs very deep within myself as it’s always been a getaway from my life and my earliest experiences and it was inevitable music would play a massive part of my life but I started Djing when I was 17, I bought a pair of turntables with my first ever pay check, but back then I was mixing Garage, Hip Hop aswell and Drum and Bass..

I really fell in love with dnb once jump up started to come into it’s own a few years later..

I had my first set out in 2005 at a small event in Birmingham called dnb shop and haven’t looked back since, I had a spell on the sidelines and came back with an absolute bang, I’ve since performed at most of the major brands including Innovation vs Random Concept in 2008, sticky, United sounds , Nu:Era, Bassmans bash which is Random Concept led, and a small event in Belgium too..

I’ve learnt a lot on my way and have now finally found how to get this music game right, so it’s only a matter of time and with my hard graft and constant effort to make it.

 

What is Nu:Generation DnB?

I am the only member of Nu:Generation, I run it on my own as a label, events and radio station which will soon be a studio based station.

I set it up in 2014 and kept it going except for when my son Ashton was born thats when I took a break from music to settle in.. ever since then and this last 12 month’s especially Nu:Generation has been doing some pretty big things including the big event for mine and fellow fully charged member Dutty Mowgli bday bash in November then a pre Xmas Mash Up in December.

www.facebook.com/nugenerationdnb

Birthday bash in May which i am going to do a boat party and really celebrate in style.

It’s also a label too, this year has been event focused so my releases, one release every other month but they are doing well and you can find our catalogue at

https://www.junodownload.com/labels/Nu%3AGeneration+DnB/

Next up on the label is a impressive Ep from Kre and nice mixture of jump up and rollers and it’s such a well produced Ep that I’m proud to release.

 

 

 

You live in Leamington Spa but shall be hosting events in Birmingham, why did you choose Birmingham?

Yeah Leamington is my home but when it comes to Drum and Bass then Birmingham is my home.

I’ve got an affinity with the place and it’s always been the place to be when it comes to Drum and Bass in my eyes.

The scene is incredible here at the moment with some other brands putting on amazing shows and some incredibly talented artists and home sweet home and all that..

I do plan on branching out to other areas but Birmingham always is and always will be the place to be for Drum and Bass..

 

Birmingham DnB scene is dominantly Jump Up.
When planning an event in Birmingham among other Jump Up promoters did you find any difficulties or do you all support each other?

I find with any kind of promoting wether it be a music event, a building company or just any kind of promoting in general it’s difficult because of competition but you have to try to go one step further and graft and really give it something special.

I’ve trained in music business, social media, marketing, branding and a lot of workshops to improve myself as a music businessman and it seems to be paying off, in terms of the other promotor, no I don’t find difficulties with them whatsoever, everybody here loves the scene and wants it to thrive and are all good people so if you study the scene right you know what’s going on and set your dates accordingly and if they are talented wether they run another brand or not then I will book them.

For me it’s all about the love of music, the scene and what I do..

 

 

 

You also do many live streams on AA1radio.
When is the next live stream?

Me and my Fully Charged team do our shows on AA1 every Monday from 8pm-10pm and we bring special guests.

It’s 2 hours of raw power and I love to perform with them..

 

I noticed you did a set without any MCs and promoted it as an MC free zone.
Do you prefer having no MCs on your set?

Mc Free Zone isn’t a set it’s a mixtape series I do without Mcs just so I can get more content out and give the listeners a chance to really hear me.

I love to perform and be involved in music in any way shape or form but I do prefer Mcs on my set because they help the performance and always give the set that something extra.

Fully charged Mcs Kolapse and Skinn-e are absolutely incredible and I love to perform with all of my team and they are all making me very proud of them and how far they are coming.

We recently played at Bassmans last bash and we all put in a big shift and the room was absolutely rammed.

 

 

Any more info we should know about yourself?

Yeah I’m not only into my DnB.

I also do Graphic Design and a Videographer too.

I get a lot of work in those so I’m happy with anything I do, I’ve also got an interview on camera with Limelight T.V to look forward to and also I’m doing a project called Enbe Expeditions where a cameraman follows me to and from bookings and films my escapades which I’m really looking forward to..

I’ve got my mc free zone mix series every other month and I’m also doing a mix series called the producer mix series where I take one producer and mix only their tracks into a mixtape for release once a month.. the first one is filthy habits out now 31st August..

 I am sitting on alot of tracks ready to be released aswell as the monthly releases from Nu:Generation where I’m excited to be releasing from artists such as Damage Report, Total Recall, Top Dolla and Kre to name a few, I’ve also got a full up booking schedule so you can catch me at a dance near you soon, I’m also going to be doing some impressive collab soon with a couple. I can’t let that out of the bag just yet.

Above it all though I wouldn’t be where I am today without the support of my wife and kids, they’ve helped me grow into what I am today and I may not be the greatest man alive but it’s striving to be and that makes u who you are, I’ve still got a long way to go to be where I want to be so my goal is to keep doing what I’m doing and when my opportunity arises I have to make sure i take it.

 

Final words?

Head on over to my Facebook page at www.facebook.com/enbednb or scan my QR code which will take you directly to all my links where you can access free content and so much more..

Also head on over to Nu:Generation on Facebook and check out our forthcoming releases and eup coming events and make sure u lock into our Fully Charged Takeover show for free giveaways and event entry..

Please introduce yourself…

Hiya all,

I am Fedi, I am Slovak, I am short, crazy and a bit weird too but most of my friends love that.

Also I am in love with drum and bass and probably heading to be a full on DJ in the future – hopefully! ( haha )

 

When did you decide to start mixing Drum & Bass and why?

I have listened drum and bass so many years basically from my early teenage years.

I used to be a promoter back in my country for few years so I have been into dnb even more than just a regular fan.

I am still part of the biggest promoters crew in Slovakia – Trident and currently I am also part of my lovely Hexagon crew here in UK.

When I moved to London I was 100% sure that I wanted to do more with drum and bass so I have started to teach myself to play on friend’s CDJs Pioneers 350 and that’s how it started.

 

 

Was there anyone in particular that inspired you to start DJing?

Many of my friends inspired me to start also many producers with their amazing music really inspired me too.

 

Any events your playing at this year?

I have already done DJ sets this year in Bratislava/ SK, Prague/ CZ and London.

Next one will be at our biggest dnb festival Trident open air in Slovakia.

 

Any Final Words?

Big shout to all my friends, family and my partner for putting trust in me and pushing me to achieve my goals.

Also my second family in Trident SK crew, Drum and bass Wear crew and Hexagon crew for giving me opportunities to learn and improving myself in many different ways.

 Finally thanks to Drum+Basics ladies for this great opportunity.

Great to have a mix on your channel!

I really appreciate it and hope you all will like it!

Marking the first time we have ever invited a resident back to the club, Andy C takes the helm as our 21st quarterly resident of XOYO. His 2017 residency blew the collective minds of the d’n’b scene worldwide, and it’s fair to say we are hyped to welcome him back to XOYO. Prepare yourself for another stripped back,
intimate, sweaty affair with some of the biggest and best names in the scene. MC Tonn Piper joins him for 13 weeks, the pair’s lasting friendship second only to their shared passion for drum and bass.

Discovered whilst co-owning De Underground Records shop, label head of Mac II Recordings and Stepback Sessions is otherwise known as the man who influenced Andy C. Playing a pivotal role in the evolution of electronic music, Randall’s one of the pioneers who helped shape Breakbeat and Jungle into what we know and love today.

His diverse back catalogue and reputation for moving fluently between genres has meant it’s not possible to pigeonhole him and made for the most exciting sets. LFM in support.
