Sublife Recordings is starting another push of new releases! SBLF012 is finally out (long over due) and is the heavily anticipated release from our good friends, Aphonic.

Check out the clips below…


Aphonic is made up of two great guys (Kevin Mitchell & Devon Ingram) from here in California. This will be their second release from them on the label and we hear there is also a BoS/Aphonic co-lab which should be coming out on CODE Recordings sometime in the near future as well. Big up homies!

Brand new music straight out of Moscow! Russian talent, No Rules, brings some fresh minimal dnb vibes to Sublife.

“Brunette From Mars” is a spaced out halfstep journey in the outer rheims of the solar system. Reminiscent of the old days of acid jazz & downtempo this tune combines lush pads, haunting vocals stabs, heavy bass notes & funky laid back drums.

On “Abell 1689″, No Rules brings an even deeper and more minimal vibe. With kicks and subs driving the track, light amospherics & distant vocals are met with sweep percurssions, bleeps and bloops. One for the late night mind exploration crew.

Due out in all fine digital retailers August 20th, 2012

Sublife brings in 2012 with it’s most diverse release to date. Dub Arrest started out with long time friends Lukeino & J.Bass writing instrumental Dub tracks while recording live guitars, bass, percussion and sound design elements eventually taking the project into the studio and bringing in Kush Arora on Drums and Dubsworth on lead guitar. All four artists contributed to final mixing and production at Kush’s studio in San Francisco where Juakali’s vocals were added.

To round out the release we reached out to some of the best in Bay Area bass music production with Aphonic delivering a stellar Halfstep Drum & Bass number, followed by Pawn‘s deliciously deep Post-step funk out. To top it off, Tommy Lexxus debut’s his Riparian moniker with a tripped out Dub Techno remix.

N-Judah is a halfstep drum & bass swing hybrid with a moody edge. Inspired by foggy days and cloudy nights spent in the Lower Haight and SOMA districts of San Francisco and the train line that connects them. Eerie minor chords meet techy claps fueled by a deep low end and punchy kicks. Dark atmospheres, well placed fx and faint sounds of a train rolling into a station take the listener into the world of the N-Judah.

Thought Withdrawal is a bit more on the minimal side of the spectrum with lush pads and delayed synth stabs giving a bit of a space and deepness while the kicks and snares go in and out of muffled and being more out front. Some heavy break fills and thick sub lines make this one for the heads!
