There is nothing like a good small venue – the Redhouse is all that is good in terms of such – with a range of music second to none. We always used to say that we played the widest range of music in South Yorkshire, if not beyond. On a personal note, I have played ska, breaks, drum and bass, house – minimal, tech, acid and more from all over the world, Balkan beats, a whole range of African music – zouk, zouk love, kizomba, kuduro, soukous, kwaito, as well as baile funk, 2 step, chillout, ambient, mashups, trance, techno, lounge, broken beat, nujazz, nusoul, northern, motown and the list could go on. We have put on audio-visual art events. I still VJ and occasionally DJ there. The live music offered is endless.

Aromatiq – chillstep, broken beat, intelligent dnb …

Posted on

aromatiq5 (0-00-00-00)

and so, back to colours heard …

question? how would you illustrate such a genre or collection of genres, chillstep, broken beat, intelligent drum and bass?

Such music connects at so many points and still diverts in so many ways.

Having had a lot of time spent with such genres as dnb in the past it was natural that I return to the intelligent and liquid side of things. So, I have spent some nice time recently with such producers as Intelligent Manners and more. My love of triphop and 2 step continues, as with the generalities of ambient and more – in the forthcoming mixes on mixcloud you will hear what I hope to be a good mix of all and a bit of a return to my past with suitable reggae mentions as well.

Chillstep – the gentler end of dubstep

Posted on

Whenever I went to parties I always used to gravitate towards the chillout room. I would, of course, make my tour of what was going on, but there was always a fascination with the chill room. I have an abiding love of the gentler end of things – I do still love my big bouncy and darker, harder end of things, but still. Thus, I suppose it was inevitable that I would end up roaming around that reasonably recent end of music called chillstep. Unfortunately there is no proper wiki for it. You never know I may end up doing something myself. But still …
Phaeleh – I still really enjoy my 2 step and so, another inevitability – there are regular hints of 2 step within his stuff, an occasional flavour of intelligent dnb and more.

Phaeleh – Wikipedia.

Phaeleh.

Other serious artists within the field include The Glitch Mob, Modestep, Submotion Orchestra, Blackmill, Synthetic Epiphany, ID3, Fracx, Ghosts of Paraguay and more …

Chillstep came about as dubstep was modified in its move forwards by those bringing other sensibilities. People such as Phaeleh return to ideas of 2 step beats. Dubstep, itself, was part of a move on from the older 2 step garage musical genre. In some cases full on chill and ambient flavours are present. In other cases there is very much of a dub feel and so you see such things as psydub and cyberdub included. There is a lot of vocal content, at time with almost an indie, nusoul and pop vibe running through.

Other favourites of mine are Submotion Orchestra from Leeds, Ghosts of Paraguay, Synthetic Epiphany, Liquid Stranger and more. The hints of intelligent dnb, triphop, electrodub, full on chill, orchestral notes, dub itself, – these are all qualities that draw me in.
