PuppyKilla introduces… MISTER SIX

I came across this guy whilst I was checking out a Belgian D’n’B producer called Sidelock.  I noticed that Mister Six had done a Dubstep version of his tune ‘Catharsis’.  I loved that tune and the others on his page.  Here’s what he had to say…

Name, age, location?

‘Joe Myers, 21, London and Lincoln UK’

How did you get into music production?

‘I started playing around with some software called Ejay that I got free with Golden Grahams years ago as a kid.  It was just dropping and re-arranging pre-made loops, but I loved it.’

Which producers influence you? What inspires you to create music?

‘I think when the guys on Rottun started making some big big tunes a couple of years back I really wanted to create a similar sound.  I guess that they inspired me to start making harder and darker Dubstep.  I get a lot of influence from artists like Spor, Katharsys and Amon tobin.’

Which of your tracks is your personal favourite (and why)?

‘This is a tough question.  I think ‘They will destroy us’ was really the track that started things for me, but I like my recent stuff because it’s better produced. ‘

What have you been working on recently? Do you have anything due for release soon?

‘I’m working on a few new bits including a Drumstep/D’n’B remix of my new track ‘Fluid’.  I am planning on releasing an EP called ‘The Fluid EP’, but whether this is a free release or not we will have to wait and see…  The tracks will be ‘Fluid’, ‘Fluid Drumstep remix’, ‘Palipitations’ and a track featuring Lui V.  Become a fan of the Facebook page and you might get to grab it for free.’  😉

Any shout outs you want to do?

‘Shout outs to Kirkus, Steven from Squitty, Instigate, all of the guys from Chronos records and everyone else that is helping me or supporting me.’

Here’s the ‘Catharsis’ remix I told you about.  I love the way the blips work so well with the deep sub-bass…

This next one is called ‘Internecine’.  The build up is long but the sub-bass is immense when it kicks in and the vocal samples are pretty awesome…

If you’ve checked out the Borgore money remixes below then you’re probably getting a bit sick of that tune but don’t skip this track.  Mister Six has done an awesome version, totally different to the others.  The bass is ridiculous and the vocal samples are well used.  Prepare to have your ass kicked…

Finally we have a preview of the track ‘Fluid’ mentioned in the interview.  I won’t pass judgement on it yet as it isn’t the final product but it’s pretty awesome.  Whether that EP turns out to be a freebie or not, it’s pretty safe to say that I’ll be getting it..!

Head on over to his profiles to check out his other tunes and show him some support!

PuppyKilla introduces… T VICIOUS

I came across this guy the other day when Youtube kindly recommended one of his tracks to me.  I was pretty f*cking impressed and after looking through his other tunes and finding them all to be of the same quality, I hunted his ass down and asked him to do this interview for me…
Name, age, location?

‘Tilo Hall, 18, Norwich (UK)’

How did you get into music production?

‘About 3 years ago I learned how to use Reason and started trying to make dodgy house and electro, it was alright but I wasn’t really feeling the genre too much.  Then one night I heard Cockney Thug at a party and I knew I wanted to produce dubstep!  I liked the half-time beat and heavy bass.’

Which producers influence you? What inspires you to create music?

‘Far too many producers to list here, haha!!  The main ones are people who are original and do things their own way like; KOAN Sound, Coki, Dream, Eptic etc.  Other music is the thing that inspires me the most, but I also produce mainly late at night which probably has an effect on my sound.’

Which of your tracks is your personal favourite (and why)?

‘It’s usually the most recent one I’ve made, but one that still hits me hard is ‘Give Me What I Want’.  The vocals are nice and it always goes off at a rave!  I’m proud of the 2nd drop in that, it’s pretty different.’

What have you been working on recently? Do you have anything due for release soon?

‘Yeah, I’ve got my track ‘Ouch!’ dropping January 2011 on Play Me Too Records and an EP forthcoming on Krypled Brain Records soonish, plus collabs with Widelows, F3tch, Davr and Skumstep.  Also got the ‘Give Me What I Want’ Remix EP coming out early next year with some big names on remixing duties – definitely one to watch!!’

Any shout outs you want to do?

‘Massive biggups to Skumstep, 2face, Thorazine, Phanatik, Reid Speed, Sashwat, Davr, Widelows, The Chronos Badman Collective, TheFilthEffect, LennyStill & of course all the fans and followers!  Cheers for all the support.’

First up I’m going to give you the track that first got my attention.  This is T Vicious’ track ‘Ouch!’ which is coming out in January.  It has an almost odd-sounding intro but then Vicious drops a funny sample from the ‘Charlie bit me’ video, followed by deep bass-line and futuristic, arcade-style sound effects that really set it off…

Next up we have T’s favourite track ‘Give me what I want’.  Listen out for the second drop… Sick!

Finally we have ‘Let’s go’.  I picked this track because of the awesome hip-hop sample and also because it has been featured on Mistajam’s show on Radio 1Xtra.  Check it out…

Be sure to check out T’s Soundcloud and show the guy some love on the old Bookface 🙂

…and it’s actually better than the original.  No shit.  Sub Focus isn’t easy to remix either.  See the Prime interview here.

PuppyKilla introduces… CYBEROPTIX

I came across this guy whilst gathering tracks from Youtube to go along with Chrispy’s interview.  His remix of Chrispy’s ‘Predator’ is brilliant and so after hearing it, I tracked him down…

Name, age, location?

‘Alex Epps, 20, Memphis TN/LA’

How did you get into music production?

‘A friend of mine introduced me to some of his music he made on Fruity Loops 5 and I was pretty impressed.  So I went home and downloaded the program and was hooked ever since.’

Which producers influence you? What inspires you to create music?

‘I really enjoy Liquid Stranger and Vaski in dubstep, but in other forms of electronic music I really dig acts like Tipper and Telefon Tel Aviv.   I get inspired by alot of different things, whether it be video games, current life issues, outer space, robots, Pokemon or even Dragonball Z.  :P’

Which of your tracks is your personal favourite (and why)?

‘I dig on Toasty and Distress Signal alot, really tried to focus on doing some different stuff in those tunes.  (RIP Distress Signal).’

What have you been working on recently? Do you have anything due for release soon?

‘Right now I’m working on a brand new EP for Play Me Records, and I have some collabs with Liquid Stranger, Chrispy, and Quartus Saul coming too.  :)’

Any shout outs you want to do?

‘All my friends in Memphis and my select homies out west, and anyone whos ever pressed play on one of my tunes 🙂 you guys are the shit, cant tell you enough :)’

‘There’s always room to improve and no producer is perfect.  Stick true to what you want to make and what you want to hear and support this great genre of music that gets some of us up out of bed each day :)’

So here we have Cyber’s remix of ‘Predator’ by Chrispy that I mentioned before the interview.  The drop in this is vicious!  It took a little time to find the full version of this but it was totally worth it…

Next up we have ‘Geisha’.  This track is the one that really got Cyberoptix noticed, released on Play Me Records back in May, it reached number 1 for downloads on Beatport and remained in the top 5 for over a month.  A brilliant track, seamlessly fusing soothing backing sounds with an aggressive bass-line…

This next track is one of Cyberoptix favourites ‘Toasty’.  A slower-paced track with a healthy wobble.  There are some awesome sound-bytes from Mortal Kombat in here.  It’s always good to have something that strays from the beaten track a little bit…  This is one of those tunes…

Lastly we have another remix.  Less aggression in this track, more of a technical feel.  The progression being made in the genre is amazing and this remix of ‘Dinosaurs with guns’ really shows where we’re heading…

PuppyKilla introduces… EVIL BASTARDS

A few days ago I was looking around for some new stuff to listen to and I came across these guys.  I took a little look at their Soundcloud page, picked a track and pressed play.  One minute later I was asking these guys for an interview.  Good timing it was too, as this interview coincides with the uploading of 7 new tracks onto their page, 3 of which are free to download.  It doesn’t get much better than that…

Name, age, location?

Timmy Tutone:  Tim, 26, Wichita, KS
GOODGAWD:  Trev, 26, Kansas City, MO

How did you get into music production?

Timmy:  I have played the guitar for almost 14 years.  About 10 years ago, my dad bought me Cakewalk guitar studio so I could record some songs I was writing on my guitar.  This was my first DAW.

GOODGAWD:  I only got into production about a year ago, when I bought an MPD and a midi keyboard and started playing around with Ableton Live.

Which producers influence you?

Timmy:  Probably my favorite electronic musician is Simon Posford from Shpongle/Hallucinogen.  I really like all of his work.  His songs go back and forth from dark and terrifying to peaceful and soothing.  He’s truly a master.  As far as dubstep goes, I really like 16 Bit, Skrillex, Bare, Excision, Datsik… the list goes on…

GOODGAWD:  I’m a big hip-hop fan, so a lot of my influences come from that, along with downtempo/trip-hop.  I got big into glitch-hop and through that discovered dubstep.  Some of my favorite producers right now are SKisM, 16bit, Matta, Ben Samples, and Mimosa.

What inspires you to create music?

Timmy:  Gloomy weather.  Thunderstorms.  Dank nugs.  Girls.
GOODGAWD:  Blue skies and sunshine.

Which of your tracks is your personal favorite? Why?

Timmy:  I really like our newest track… Still working on the title.  It has some soothing female vocals and then drops a gnarly wobble bass line.  I like soothing melodies over filthy bass lines.

GOODGAWD:  Have to agree on that one.  Very epic and grimy.

What have you been working on recently? Anything due for release soon?

Timmy:  We just finished a song last night actually… We will be giving away some free songs on our Soundcloud at the beginning of the year and booking gigs all over the Midwest during 2011.  Oh, and our debut EP was released last month on Stupid Fly Records, so make sure and pick that up!

Any shout outs you want to do?

Timmy:  Yeah big thanks to Qel-droma from Stupid Fly Records for helping us with our debut release!

GOODGAWD:  Thanks to Stupid Fly, DJ Always420, and our homies.

So first up is one of the new tracks, it’s free to download form their Soundcloud (link at the end of the piece) so get yourself over there and add it to your collection…  This is ‘Why’…

Next up we have the title track from there EP ‘The frightened’ out on Stupid Fly Records.  Nice empty sounding intro and a huge drop make for good listening…

This next track is definitely one of my favourites from these guys.  You can here the hip-hop influence on this track instantly.  It has real attitude for the first half and then later on develops into a Dubstep track of real depth.  Then it starts over.  This is a unique piece of work…

Finally we have ‘Yaw and order’, another track available for free download.  I could put up every single track from these guys but I chose this one as it was the first one I heard from them and the reason I asked them to do this interview for me…  Check it out…

Make sure you head over to Soundcloud and have a listen to the other tracks these guys have up…

PuppyKilla introduces… BARE!

I’ve been waiting for this interview for quite some time.  I’ve been a big fan of Bare since I heard his stuff floating around on Youtube a few months ago.  This guy really needs no introduction…  This. Is. BARE!

Name, age, location?

BARE – 27 – LOS ANGELES

How did you get into music production?

‘Well I went to parties when I was younger and really fell in love with a lot of the sounds I was hearing.  So I decided to try out producing and see if I could make even better sounds.  Before that I was in a few metal bands (guitar).  So naturally, music has always been a big part of my life.’

Which producers influence you? What inspires you to create music?

‘My latest favorites are – Skism, Flux Pavillion, Mark Instinct, Downlink and Borgore (Some next level shit every time guys ;)).  I’d have to say that the love of making something from nothing inspires me to make music.  That and my fans.  There is no better feeling thanwhen you see people go insane to something you created from scratch!’

Which of your tracks is your personal favourite (and why)?

‘Personal Fav’s that are out would be – ‘Fine day’, ‘Shot me down’ & ‘All about my paper’.  Those 3 songs caused so much buzz and really helped me find a new sound at the time when I was looking for something more.  Personal Fav’s that are not out would be – ‘2die4’, ‘Banshee’ & ‘Hearts Under Fire rmx’ – Those 3 are big for me because I was exploring new sounds, techniques or styles with them and I am very happy with the crowd reaction I’ve been getting from them.’

What have you been working on recently? Do you have anything due for release soon?

‘Well, i just wrapped up 2 collab songs with Mark instinct as MOB. i have tons of work to get done before January.  I plan to work on some remixes, a collab and a few originals.  My next release will be ‘I believe’, Banshee/Collateral damage on Subhuman early next year and an Ultragore ep following that in February.  Keep your eyes peeled!’

Any shout outs you want to do?

‘Shouts to Subhuman, Play Me, Buygore, my family, my freinds and all my fans out there.  Every time, every interview I will say it time and time again… I aint shit without you guys!’

Last night Bare uploaded 3 new tracks onto his Soundcloud.  One of them being the long-awaited ‘GEE6SIX RMX’.  Everyone has been talking about this for quite some time now.  Finally, it’s available!  Here it is..!

Next, I’ll put up Bare’s 3 favourite released tracks; ‘Fine day’, ‘Shot me down’ and ‘All about my paper’.  Probably his most popular tracks to date, most of you will have heard them already so I won’t waste my time trying to describe them.  Ready for the noise..?

Here is a preview of his upcoming release on Subhuman.  This is ‘Banshee’…

Lastly, my favourite track from Bare – ‘Lateral’.  This totally blew my mind when I first heard it.  I’m a big fan of Tool anyway and to hear one of their songs turned into such a masterpiece of filth is amazing.  Bare definitely isn’t afraid to try new things in order to reach the next level.  This track shows that better than any other in my opinion…

If you haven’t already, be sure to check out his other stuff on Soundcloud/Myspace and show him some love on Facebook…
