Hi kids, it´s me, Tim Turbo. The youngest bambino of Berlin´s famous anti-hippie-yard from Planet Rock Street.
My old bloggin-home Cyan Wait is on hold now and therefore I´m going to provide you with basses every thursday henceforth here at seen..
At Cyan Wait it was my job to search for new music and Emil was the writer. I´ll keep that principle and will do a weekly mix for you of what I liked in the last weeks. Some brand new tunes, some tunes are a few weeks old and some are just unknown until now. This time I start easy, because I don´t want to scare you with my extraterrestrial bass taste yet. It´s Thursday – Basses for the masses!
Heads up, Tim Turbo Thursday is here. Bass in your face after the jump up…
Download: Tim Turbo – Tim Turbo Thursday #1 (sharebee)
01 Terry Lynn – Streetlife (WILDLIFE! Mix)
Waterhouse rudegyal Terry Lynn describes her own music as Ghettotech, in fact a bad mixture of Electro, Trancehall, Rap, Grime and a mess of other sounds plus heavy basslines. Her album “Kingstonlogic 2.0″ just saw the daylight and this tune, called “Streetlife” is mixed by Wildlife! a.k.a. Samuel Riot – who has some link to Diplo’s Mad Decent label. Furutistique
“Girl from the streets from the gulley from the gutter / Remembering the days of dry bread without butter”
Check the video to “The System” with beautiful pictures of Afflicted Yard´s Peter Dean Rickards, German Rap´s feuilleton Marcus Staiger about Terry and Wildlife!´s Cristle Castles remix of “Knight Crusade”.
02 Bassnectar – Roustabout (Bassnectar Remix)
San Francisco’s Bassnectar got a new EP out and an upcoming full-length, preaching his bass-heavy, anti-corporate message!
03 Sibot feat. Teba – Badder Than
Ghislain Poirier send me this tune, claiming it’s good and as a matter of course it is not just good, it’s pure fire.
04 Laroz ft Trevor Ranks & Daddy Colonel – Ital (NDV Remix)
Let´s go on a trip to the middle east:
Mad Decent introduced Nadav Ravid aka NDV to me. He is a DJ remixer from Israel, Part of the DJ team Botanika and the creative duo Polar Pair . He got a remix compilation up, remixing only tunes by Israeli Artists. The one below is my favourite, since it’s a blueprint for dancehall influenced Bass: heavy electronic instrumentation, chopped vocals and some guy toasting on top. Israel peeks beyond their own nose. Follow!
05 Terry Lynn – IMF (WILDLIFE! Mix)
Again off “Kingstonlogic 2.0″. Fire on International Monetary Fund, or so ??!!
06 Taranchyla – Cyaan Dance
This one is a little older: Taranchyla, MC and Selecter for Poison Dart thinks that it is fundamental to know that everybody in Flatbush is dancing the Nuh Linga now. So he made a dancing tune and I thought the dancing tune segment was death. They say the riddim is selfproduced and called Bionic. I say its tectonic. Destruction.
07 Busta Rhymes feat. Ron Brownz – Arab Money
Mudd up! Discovered this hell of a Busta tune and added two more Arab-styles. International.
And check out Busta doing the “Arab Money Dance” at Westwoods show.
08 MC PAPO – Pare de me ligar
The tune is off a mixtape called â€žDancehall Brasilâ€œ Maga Bo posted on his blog. Compiled by Jimmy Luv from Sao Paulo, it´s 59 minutes that represents reggae/dancehall artists from Brasil. It´s not all worthwhile, but there are some decent tracks on there. Get it here.
Check the video for the tune.
09 Lexie Lee – Bye Bye Bye
Lexie Lee off South Rakka´s “Remakes Come Again – Greetings To All Raggamuffin”. Oldschool 2.0 flavour.
10 Nicki Minaj – Beam Me Up Scotty
11 Modeselektor & Ninjaman – Weed Wid da Macka (Modeselektor Mix)
Modeselektor did this inapprehensible trancehallhybrid featuring the original Don Gorgon on the vocals. It´s from 2007, but I think nobody realized how stupefying this masterpiece is.
The message is love.
Sincerely yours, Tim Turbo
