Slowly but steadily emerging from the bass music underground is Hamburgs latest Stadium-Drum'n'Bass / Dubstep crossbreed named BRAZED which have been have been signed to the legendary and ever active Audiolith stable recently after contributing remixes for acts like Ira Atari - this rework solo-crafted by BRAZED founding member BadBoy Zoniy was opening the labels doors for BRAZED - , HipHop-outfit Neonschwarz or the IndieRock-outfit Fuck Art, Let's Dance! and it's pretty obvious that their tunes are about to take the rave scene by storm due to their massive full-on approach. Maybe devasting bass music is not everyone's cup of tea but they're serving flawlessly in technical manners plus their tunes fully fueled with energy as their track "Remainder" easily proves here. Plus: it's quite a sweet, spooky video that perfectly  fits to the halloween craze happening in the streets today.

If you can stand this one energywise and feel that there's need for more check out their uber-sick "Power Hour" mix that features a bunch of 60 tracks in 60 minutes. Three decks are used here and not one second of silence for old men. They've got some power.

Freshly released and available only as mp3 or CD on demand via Amazon is Sascha Müllers latest album output named "Freestyle Acid" and all those who do trust the works of this ever busy Acid activist which seems to have petabytes of unreleased tracks sitting somewhere in his vaults know what they're about to get with this one. Again, as one has to admit. Making waves with two sought after limited 7" releases on the Psychocandies label these days Sascha Müller rolls out the Acid vibe with a whole bunch of ten tracks here, all of them serving a quite stripped down and reduced to the max but still spiralling feel and - especially talking "Drumsequencer (Acid Mix)" and it's Tribal drums here - sometimes reminisces about projects like Steve Stolls HypnoAcid one-off-alias Datacloud or the shrieking madness unveiled by labels like Communique, Drop Bass Network or Labworks Germany which have been playing an influential if not essential role in the musical upbringing of this man from Uelsen / Germany which for some weird reason is not playing out much on the DJ circuit nor has a big overall reputation although discogs states an amount of 396 releases and appearances from 1998 until today, most of them on the digital circuit including 57 albums, 240 Singles / EP and vinyl releases on Gary Martins Teknotika Records, the Cologne-based Shot Tools, my own Intrauterin Recordings imprint and more recently on Shhhh Records. Most of these release cater a certain quality and an obviously raw analogue vibe, so one might guess that Sascha Müller spent a good amount of the 90s in semi-legal underground venues and at massive raves, inhaling the special spirit of a growing movement gaining momentum in excess and ecstasy that's still innate in his musical works. Big up. Me likey.
