What’s news in the life of Jamandru Reynolds.

Breakstep

When I discovered the first track in this playlist, it inspired me to make a Dubstep mix that is more danceable and less head-banging or somber as the genre tends to be. These tracks are so rare, however, that I needed to dip into other genres to fill out the mix.

Pro tip: the subwoofer bass around track 3 & 4 (drops in at 7:20) is pretty epic.

Expanding Force

Inspired by some mind-blowing sets the last several years at Mindgames‘ The Labyrinth event in Japan, I set out to make a playlist of music I’d play on those sweet Function One’s if given the chance.

Originally I set out to make a dark psychedelic mix but the beauty and awe in the tracks I gravitated towards transformed the vibe into a Cosmosis-like outer space journey. These tracks bring to mind images from science documentaries depicting the universe expanding by the theoretical forces of dark matter. Deep space expanding, a blueprint for a positive psychedelic experience.

Ran Dry

I’ve been finding a lot of great soul/blues-based House music and put some of them together in this ultra-moody mix.

The lyrics are mostly about relationship issues which remind me of feeling stuck in that grey area between love and discord that you generously label as ‘passion’. The kind of dysfunctional relationship you know you should escape from but some dark urge compels you to cling on and try to make it work. They say, “You accept the love you think you deserve.” So, do you really think you can do any better? If that deliberation gives you any anguish then the answer is “Yes”. Yes, you can.

Ab:duction

This is my take on what it might sound like if you were abducted by aliens, transformed into a bio-tech sonic weapon, and returned with god-like power to terraform Earth into a barren wasteland for the aliens. Which is not much of a stretch from what most Dubstep producers are doing to us.

G-Whip Loaded

Hip-Hop over Dubstep and Trap music. Loaded in every sense of the word (drunk/high, rich, packing heat, riding dirty, bass in the trunk).
