They’ve been around for some time turning heads with their unique take on the template, now there’s a certain remix floating about. none60 supremos Silent Dust take us into THAT melding of minds with the one like Sinistarr… and BEYOND (applies echo).
Tell us when this remix came about, because right now it’s attained mythical proportions!
The original was ‘Love Sundered’ was the track that crossed Sinistarr’s path with ours, I saw that he had been supporting it so instantly got at him on online, we swapped tunes and realised he was coming from a similar angle to ourselves so it made sense to get him on the remix!
We have quite a frightening amount of music at various stages right now… we just need to do the hard work! It’s all sorts of tempos and styles but still sounds like us. I hope!
We’ve been working on more music with DRS and our long time collaborator Zilla Rocca.
What new impulses you got? Could be sounds… or new studio habits, just in terms of CHANGE.
I’ve just got myself a decent-ish mic so I’ve been recording myself hitting things and playing around with sound in that way, 90% of it sounds awful but I enjoy it! We have also started a none60 podcast so I’ve been doing my best John Peel impression in an attempt to spread the good music!
(take note: next podcast drops soon, watch out)
What D&B are you feeling?
Quite a bit actually; everyone seems to say this but I think it’s in a good place right now. If you want breaks you can get it, bleeps and clicks you can get it, sci-fi soundscapes you can get it.
It was a big release and I’m sure it doesn’t need me singing its praises but I really enjoyed the Dom & Roland 12 on Headz, it’s a combination that just made sense!
It’s also good to see Doc Scott bring back 31 and getting Om Unit in for a remix worked out great.
… and thus to ‘non D&B’… of any genre, what things?
Mostly Hip Hop, I love the TDE artists and think the Isaiah Rashad album is one of the best of the year so far. By the time this comes out Schoolboy Q’s Oxymoron should be out and I’m sure I’ll love that too!
We’re also lucky to work with some great Hip Hop acts and it’s inspiring when you look at your listening habits and realise that it’s mostly people you know!
OK, fusing this together, what’s five tunes that people may have forgotten about, any genre, five tunes that will creep up and tap you on the shoulder (‘remember me?’). Silent Killers, from Silent Dust as it were.
Outkast ‘SpottieOttieDopaliscious’. Every year that goes by Aquemini seems to get better and better and nobody seems to be able to get close to this,
The Notorious B.I.G. ‘Notorious Thugs’ ft. Bone Thugs-n-Harmony. I never used to like this track that much – I much preferred Biggie in hardcore kick in the door mode as a kid – but the older it gets you see the influence it had on modern day artists. Now I get it!
The Streets ‘Weak Become Heroes’. I recently listened to Original Pirate Material for the first time in a while: it really has become a classic British album now and is still pretty much unique.
Polar ‘Still Moving’. One of those tracks that just doesn’t seem to age…
Fellowship ‘Divided Soul’. We need Fellowship back! (DB: AMEN!!)
How do you yourself hear music? Radio’s arguably never been better.
Rinse is always good to grab mixes. Every couple of weeks I try and get lost on soundcloud by going from one page to another.
