As promised folks we are dishing out tracks from artists featured on podcast 5. Last week we hit you with Alvin Risk “At Last.” This week we have Nathan Vice’s new project Deathwave. We featured Jack Her on the podcast, and he has so kindly made his new track Pancake available for download. This track is something fierce. And the 2nd drop. Oh Boy! So enjoy, and check out the interview we did with him last month.
It’s time to do the Round UP! Looks like Tighten UP! has been firing on all 8 cylinders this week. Ya thats right we’re running on 8. The new podcast dropped, and the response has been extra rad. We also saw the release of Alvin Risk’s “The Making Of..” ep. We’re going to keep the good times rolling in October with more free downloads, and hopefully some more interviews. So watch it!
Just thought it would be nice to toss this web gem in. It’s a photo journalism website that is kinda mind blowing. They cover lots of socially conscious topics and provide short back stories for the photos. Check it out.
Oh my oh my. Following up on the heels of Podcast 4, we are back with a vengeance. Of course the usual suspects are here, like Alvin Risk, Painted Face, Mayhem, and The American Dream Team. And of course we are bringing the brand new dubstep, electro, and a hint of dnb. But what you didnt know is that this mix is so hot, Illy’s sound card melted while making it. Thus explaining his sparse vocal presence. So enjoy. And don’t let the mix melt your computerTop. Oh and PS, we will also release a new download from the podcast everyweek just like we did for the last podcast so stay tuned for the goodies.

We’re big fans of this Puerto Rico native, turned New York transplant. Ever since he came down to DC in May of 09 and played almost an entire set of originals, he’s been heavy on our radar. Last year he teamed up wtih the Tighten UP! crew on his remix of Illy’s Double on the Rocks project, “Thats My Steez.” And was recently featured on Tighten UP! Podcast 4.
So how did you get your start DJ’ing?
I guess it all started when I heard drum & bass for the first time back in 2000 (kind of late I know). I was absolutely blown away. The energy, the sound design. Everything. I didn’t really know how to go about it… I just wanted to make music like that… Somehow. Had a friend who was into promoting parties and knew about this stuff. He recommended I start out DJing first, and then I would pick up on the musical and production skills. Bought a cheap pair of turntables and a mixer, bunch of records, and got to practicing. Played a few small parties for some time, then I took a break to focus on making music for a while. I picked up DJing again around 2008, when I finally jumped from drum & bass to house, electro, etc.
Favorite Jello flavor?
You’ve played in Puerto Rico quiet a bit, what do you find is the difference between there and the states?
PR has a surprisingly active party scene with lots of great, high profile acts dropping by all the time. It’s an island of course and most of the scene concentrates around the capital, so all in all it’s a handful of local people running things and playing most of the parties along with the bigger names. It’s a tight knit scene so once word spreads that you’re doing good work, especially on the production front, and getting outside recognition, it’s easier to get a variety of consistent gigs. But its not a walk in the park either. You have to put in your work and pay your dues like anywhere else. Here in the states things feel more spread out. Lots of promoters, companies, DJs, producers, etc all trying to do their own thing, so it ends up being a little nerve-racking at times… Until you get one or two tracks that really blow up and put you on the map. I’m working on that heh.
GI Joes or Transformers?
teenage mutant ninja turtles
Favorite track or Remix you’ve done so far?
Probably the last two tracks I finished as Deathwave
Deathwave – Pancake
Deathwave – Jack Her (Til She Screams)
Your stuck on an island, and you can only bring 3 DVD’s to watch for the next 3 years. What do you bring?
Scarface (I know it’s a cliche but goddamn I always loved that flick)
What can you tell us about your new project “Deathwave”?
I’ve kind of been focusing most of my energy into Deathwave lately. I’m using this project to experiment with darker, heavier tracks. The Nathan Vice thing will continue to draw from 80′s soundtracks, new wave, italo, disco, rock, etc. while Deathwave will include a broader range of influences like acid house, techno, drum & bass, hip hop, funk, tropical stuff, and whatever else. I’m not really limiting myself with it. No set rules. Just an emphasis on big bass, dark, raw, gritty vibes, and getting people to break a sweat on the dancefloor.
What will make a comeback first? Drum and Bass or the Achey Breaky Heart?
I hope country gets huge in 2012. It will make armageddon feel like not such a bad thing after all.
Looks like we’re getting back on track here forks. Podcast 5 is almost ready to go. We’ve got lots of brand new gems on it. We also have an interview with Nathan Vice/Deathwave hitting the blog next week. Should be a fun one.
This week we saw Super Mario turn 25. Truly heart warming. He’s now well beyond the legal age to drink, and the only thing he has to look forward to is his car insurance going down.
It turns out Joaquin Phoniex was full of shit the whole time. Oddly too good of an actor to portray a shitty rapper, his stunt turned out to be part of a quasi-documentary movie. May we suggest a guy who actually did a quasi-documentary movie correctly. Pauly Shore Is Dead.
