28th February 2011

Wasn't expecting this. Pretty chilled but still not, more like laid back. Next is a dub from Goth-Trad. Massive power in this one, like a train or something. Would have been nice to hear the whole thing but.

New Skream that's being mastered this week, but I haven't found any release dates. He got some real bangers on this one. The tracklist is in the same order as the videos is now. Some short words about the tunes in my opinion(But I still have to hear the full tunes so):

Seasick, it's okay, but I don't like it that much.

Heavy hitter, oh my. Massive. Instant headnodder. I would love to see the crowds reaction to this one. See, it can be big and "filthy" without being robotic and without bass. Feeling this a lot.

Riggin(there's a spelling error in the video), I have heard this one before and I've had it on the blog too. Instat headnodder once again. Feeling this one too.

Hats off, a drum and bass influenced tune. Skream have started to make a lot of those, but the problem is that they all sound very alike. It's okay, pretty summer-y if you ask me(which is always a plus for me).

Overall, can't wait to hear the full tunes. It's still Skream: simple and effective, and that's what's good about him.

Never heard of Ital Tek before. I'm liking it. Been a long time since I had any James Blake. Huge bass on both though, which isn't really James Blake trademark.

I'm back at my computer. It has been broken for about 2 months, but today I finally got it fixed. All of my bookmarks which I had on my brothers computer are gone to my now soooo, I gotta start from scratch on my computer. Sorry for the late post!

Some totally new and fresh dubstep from Rusko. It doesn't sound like Rusko, but it's good anyway. I'm actually liking this since I like liquid drum and bass, and this is liquid dubstep so. Sounds a bit too stale for me though, I like more organic tunes. So I thought, why not put something more organic-sounding in here today too. Kromestar - Kalawanji.

23rd February 2011

Wow, this is the first tune ever to made my headset distort(sadly, I can't listen to tunes on a big and nice system). Next is a tune that I've some how have missed, until Mala posted it on his facebook. Nice mix of influences in the track. Feeling it.

22nd February 2011

Darkstar is a totally new artist for me. I listened to him a lot yesterday, but I still got tunes to listen to. He's with Hyperdub, so that's a good sign(Hyperdub is one of my favorite labels). These two tunes might not be the dubstep-iest tracks, but they are good nonetheless. Really chilled stuff. Liking the voice on "Aidys Girl's a computer" a lot!

21nd February 2011

I'm gonna continue my Fentplates stuff. Here's an interview with Seizure. This time he speaks for the company, but some time this week I will have a interview with him about his own music work. Let's start:

1. Well first off, who founded Fentplates and how did it
all start?

Seizure owns Fent Plates and it was founded in October with the first release from Box Mouse. It all started during the summer when I was getting fed up with buying vinyl and it all being hard high pitched bass. So I decided to write up the business plan for the label and what else we wanted to achieve which is not musically related. Slowly, the label came from an idea into a reality and is slowly picking up speed.

2. What is your goal, as a record label?

We are a record label but a company at heart as our fingers dip into various pies in other areas. As a record label the aim is to release artists that are under rated and by doing so we would be able to hopefully increase the popularity of the artist and get them onto bigger labels. We know we're a small label, but this is already happening to a lot of artists already with offers from other labels along with the public now fol
lowing artists. We hope to be some form of stepping stone for new artists to get noticed.

We are currently aiming to put out 1 digital release every 3/4 weeks allowing enough time to give each release the attention is deserves with publicity on Twitter, Facebook, DSF, various other forums and obviously blogs and websites doing features on specific artists.

Our vinyl release sheet we're keeping under wraps but we're aiming to get our 4 releases a year which is achievable and dependant on the popularity this might increase. Our vinyl is pressed in very small quantities (200-
300) with a centre piece artwork that flows throughout each release. The pressings are also limited, meaning they will not be repressed again.

3. When I heard through the Evolution compilation, you could directly hear what Fentplates is pushing out. Which is chilled, relaxed and in my opinion some what garage influenced. Is there a reason why it's like this?

Musically speaking, we only take on melodic and chilled bits, I'm not saying we're against the harder stuff,
we just wouldn't release it. The point of the compilation was to time it for Christmas and give it away as a welcoming gift into the scene. It has done extremely well hitting 2000 downloads and over 100 CD's given away with a further 300 CD's of the compilation being given away for free by Redeye Records with every Dubstep purchase made. Most free compilations arrive and then fall, but we want to continue to celebrate the talent in this compilation by pushing it further and further with more downloads and more CD's for people to get. It can be bought for £2.99 from:

4. Fentplates have released 7 digital releases so far, and 2 more are coming out in March. Could you shed some light on some releases further on?

A-List's release dropped last week. 7th of March we are release the might Macabre Unit, Introspectionist on the 28th of March and Fused Forces on April 11th. Our digital release sheet is signed up till July with artists like Gantz & Digital Native. We're meeting more and more artists all over the world and in different walks of life and although we receive a huge amount of submissions, everything DOES get listened to! We apologise if we don't get back to you, but we try our best!

5. There is also a vinyl coming out, what's the release date on that one?

Our first vinyl release is from Fused Forces and can be pre-ordered/bought from:

We have just had the test pressings come through so I suppose it'll be in shops in 3 weeks. The 14th of March would be the latest date, but it will probably be in stores and available to buy sooner! Already half of the release has been pre-ordered, so when I get the 300 there will not be too many sitting about.

6. That'll be it, any shout outs? Thanks and big up!

Shout outs to:

Box Mouse, Kochari, Blind Prophet, Twitch, Gnome, A-list, Macabre Unit, Introspectionist, Gantz, Digital Native, Fused Forces, Kiev, Basic A, De-Real, J-One , Dfaultuzer, Phrex, Pressa, Triggy, Netrik, Module, Badhair, Whyrez

I actually got some drum and bass today, been a while. After that we got some chilled dubstep from the Japanese Quarta 330, but there isn't any 8bit in this tune(which basically is his trademark).

Saturday, 19 February 2011

19th February 2011

Some new Whyrez. Sounds pretty good in my opinion. He always has those mixed genres type of tunes! Can't wait to hear the full version though. I was actually searching for Seizures tune System check on youtube, but I couldn't find it but instead I found Netrik(which is also on Fentplates, along with Whyrez and Seizure and many others). Big up Fentplates, loving their artists and definitely going to post more of their stuff!

18th February 2011

A classic by Burial and Four Tet. It's not the usual Burial minimialistic sound but it's great nonetheless. Next is pretty new remix by Skream, that I heard for the first time today. It's pretty interesting. Not his best work, but it's good.

Thursday, 17 February 2011

17th February 2011

We got two Asian influenced tracks today, my favorite. It's been a long time since I had any hip-hop on my blog, but now I finally got some.

16th February 2011

Big tune from Goth-Trad. Apparently it's coming out on Deep Medi! Next is a pretty big, epic and mighty. All in one package.

It's -25C outside. It's now when a lot of coffee is needed. Everyone seems asleep because of this coldness.

Monday, 14 February 2011

14th February 2011

I got two tracks from the "Taste the Bass" LP by Audio Doughnuts. Voltronika(which is made by Kozee) is a more Burial type of tune, with slightly more happening. Very Early is a much more Mount Kimbie + Digital Mystikz type of tune. Digging both a lot though! Random side note, it's -23C outside.

13th February 2011

Today is gonna be a busy day. I'm gonna hit the gym, go to the sauna, clean the house AND read to my tests this week. So first some adrenaline rush and then something to calm me down. Also, if there is something you want me to write about, please write me an email/comment.

Saturday, 12 February 2011

12th February 2011

A late post today, sorry about that. I got two classics for you today and one I've never heard before. Enjoy.

11th February

New tunes from Coki, out on Tempa. I like Carbon Aliens more but Boomba isn't so bad either. I've heard better Coki but what can you do.

10th February 2011

So, here is the interview I promised:

Hello August, nice to meet you. Could you start by telling who you are etc.?

Hey Aggesmusic. My name is August(nickname's Agge and Bear). I'm 16 years old, and I live in southern Finland. My native language is Swedish, but I do also talk Finnish and English. I'm a chill person, who used to party(can't drink anymore, I've been to hospital a couple of times because of stumic pain when drinking). I like both jump up and party music AND chilled tunes.

How did you come up with the idea with writing a music blog?

Well, I've always been interested in writing and music.

Okay. What's your interests besides music and writing?

Uhh, I used to play a lot on my computer but not so much anymore. I do also enjoy going to the gym and my moped. Sadly I don't have so much spare time. If I would have more time, I would start dancing(seriously, it's fun).

What kinda music do you like? Like besides dubstep!

I used to be a 100% metalhead, but now I have totally switched over. I like dubstep(duh), drum and bass, hip hop, grime and some progressive rock.

So, what's important in a tune for you?

Either, I want a ambient and progressive tune or I want a in your face type of track. Those are the two main things. I do also want the tune to have steady rhythm or something.

What are you favorite artists and tunes in these genres:

Dubstep: Digital Mystiks and Skream. Hard to choose since I almost find new artists every day
Drum and bass: Uh, any liquid drum and bass is fine for me.
Hip hop: Jedi Mind Tricks, 7L & Esoteric, K Koke and Jeru the Damaja. Favorite track at the moment is Sir Mics " Only god can judge me".
Metal: Carcass and Black Sabbath.

I am also a huge fan of Pink Floyd.

If you could choose one place to visit, what would it be?

London, EASILY.

That's it. Thanks man, keep up the good work.

Thanks! Big up to the people in UK and every where else!

Some of my favorites tunes at the moment:

I'm warning you for this one:

So, I thought I'd do a interview with myself, but it's not done yet. It might sound a bit egoistic, but I figured, I don't know who's reading my blog and who actually knows me! But as I said, that's coming up tomorrow. And how could I have missed this Digital Mystikz tune?

Depeche Mode - Enjoy The Silence (Bootleg) by Bisweed

A remix of Depeche Mode. I used to listen a lot to them, but some how I've forgotten about them. Big up Bisweed from Estonia for the remix! Next tune is from Quarta 330, which I've heard a lot about, but usual, I'm a tad lazy.

Okay, I just love Hudson Mohawkes tunes. He just has a lot of energy in them. And supposedly, he's playing the drums himself in this track! Next, some old school filth.

Sunday, 6 February 2011

6th February 2011

I'm in a hurry today so not so much text! Yes, I've had Unexpected on my blog a long time ago!

Saturday, 5 February 2011

5th February 2011

Today I got two pretty different tracks. First one is dark and trippier, and the second one is a lot (I mean A LOT) happier. I'm a fan of both, because I do really love the dark tunes but on the other hand Hudson Mohawke can really make your day better!

Friday, 4 February 2011

4th February 2011

Two remixes of Andreya Triana - A town called obsolete. The Mala one is a more "dubstep" version, with some really nice bass while the Mount Kimbie is a more chilled one. Liking both thou!

Thursday, 3 February 2011

3rd February 2011

I'm really feeling this. I feel like I've heard it before but I never knew the name. Not into the reggae stuff but this one is a tune. Next track is a tune that I thought I had posted, but apparently I didn't. Great tunes.

Wednesday, 2 February 2011

2nd January 2011

I got two quite calm tunes today. Both are new artists to me but I've heard lots about them both. Pretty nice bass on the Rob Sparx one. Argh, now I gotta run to class.

1th February 2011

Yeah, new month and a new Jelacee tune. It's a really Burial-y tune, which is not usually what Jelacee does. But I'm digging. More stuff like this Jelacee. Not feeling it? Try this for size:
