Crackatoa EP

The title track of Sublife’s 1st E.P., Crackitoa (feat. Calculon), is a tried and tested dancefloor smasher with heavy dancehall halfstep dnb beats, dubby vocal bits and nasty synth parts that get the crowd jumping instantaneously. Moon Quakes (featuring rising Detroit talent, Sinistarr) gets a bit darker while keeping the same style rhythm and adding some techy vibes. Finally the Takeover Dub & it’s more lazor friendly version, The Takeover, round out the EP with a bit of dubby goodness.

DJ support from AK1200, Reid Speed, Bacherlors of Science, Gremlinz, Stunna & Method One, amongst many others.

Echoic Memories

This is the type of tune that can reflect a number of moods and vibes. Smooth and light yet dark and edgy at times this track is aptly named as it can transport the listener to a state of introspective thought. With the use of meticulous and thoughtful drum programming and close attention to the most minor of details in the sound effects and percussion elements, Aphonic has created a classic piece of music which is as layered and thick as it is hypnotic.

The backing track is another great tune from the Californian due entitled Gripfunk. As the name suggests, this one is designed slightly more for the dancefloor than the flip while still working well in the headphones or at home. Swinging drums lead the way as other percussion elements, funky basslines and nice resolving synths parts sit right in the pocket and bring it all together.

Runaway is a soulful roller with a classic feel. Undersound does it right and equips this track with some choice and running breaks, subby bass stabs, and haunting vocals. A nice funky swing on half-time breakdowns give this tune a perfect laid back contrast to the high energy of the big drops that will be sure to have the fellas and the ladies getting physical on the dancefloor.

All Seeing

There is something nice about a tune that reminds you of the past but also looks to the future and that is exactly what All Seeing can do for it’s listener. A bit harder and darker than the flip, this track provides the rockers with something for a serious brock out session. Understated vocal stabs hang out in the back of the room while big bass and hard hitting drums take the main stage and are prepared to smack up any beard stroker in the place.

The Key (Dubsworth Remix)

San Francisco bass music heavy weight, [b]Dubsworth[/b], gives his 140bpm take on The Key for Sublife’s first Dubstep release. Precise and intricately automated fx, detailed drum rhythms and an under water vibe give this track a unique feel. This one is sure to keep dancefloors bubbling and heads nodding for a long time to come.

Gunmen Dub

Gunmen Dub, by New York native, ICU, is another one for the true dub heads. Organic instruments meet synthesis in this funky stepper as ICU brings it back to the roots and reminds us where it all came from.

The Key (Atlantic Connection Remix)

Sublife steps up for it’s first vinyl release with a hard hitting yet super smooth dancefloor friendly number. Atlantic Connection delivers a nice dubby remix to “The Key” by Lukeino & featuring Paulie Rhyme. Deep subs and dubbed out vocal bits get the vibe moving as the beats and breaks roll out some choice rhythms. Be ready for some hands in the air when this one drops… In the jungle, jungle, jungle!

Ruby Sky

The flip side of this plate offers another heater for the floor with “Ruby Sky” by Mutt, Calculon & Austin Speed. This tune starts out with a deceptively laid back and minimal intro with some fresh sound design and nice deep vibes. When it drops it hits tough with super low subs and running beats along with some choice vocal stabs and creative use of fx.

Firing Squad

Stereotype and Sopheye deliver some serious vibes for their first release on Sublife. With a dubwise bassline, funky halfstep rhythms, and some very nice vocals with interesting treatment, this tune has got a nice variety of textures.

Minute Man

Minute Man is a killer track filled with old school flavor and some new school sounds. Keeping it Jungle but with and updated style, George Young has brought a quality tune for his first appearance on Sublife.

Tunnel Vision

Reminiscent of the old school, while keeping the sounds as fresh and crisp as the morning air, Calculon’s debut release on Sublife, Tunnel Vision, has been creating some serious buzz around the globe. Steady rolling breaks set the pace for some major sub low bass equipped with creative LFO lines, while some haunting synth stabs and FX succeed in tying the pieces together nicely. Delayed piano notes, 808 style subby bass hits, and some choice yet perfectly sparse female vocals make this tune a well rounded number that does the job on the dance floor as well as in the headphones.

“Calculon really hits all the right spots with this solid little roller. A trippy, warping bassline and spacey sound effects hold things together nicely. One for the headz.”
- Stunna

All the Time

San Francisco producers Lukeino, The Heights & Equilibrium deliver a soulful funky tune for the backing track of Sublife’s 3rd release. “All the Time” starts out with a bit of half-step goodness just before dropping into a serious rolling bassline. Running breaks and some nice steady bongos keep the energy moving while a couple of not so wobbly LFO lines have a nice little conversation with each other about the sunny weather outside. Some early DJ support from has been received by Mix Master Doc, Stunna, Method One & Calculon to name a few.
