kode 9 various productions flyer

Some background on the tonight’s bass science.

My understanding is that Mr 9 went to college with K-punk. Where they were in a krew called Ccru (Cybernetic Culture Research Unit). Based in Birmingham and founded by Sadie Plant and abetted by Nick Land(“professor of delirial engineering” ).

Here’s an excerpt from a ten year old interview about them re-uped by K-punk.

Still nominally affiliated to the famously poststructuralist Philosophy Department of Warwick University, England, the Cybernetic Culture Research Unit is a rogue unit. It’s the academic equivalent of Kurtz: the general in Apocalypse Now who used unorthodox methods to achieve superior results compared with the tradition-bound US military. Blurring the borders between traditional scholarship, cyberpunk sci-fi and music journalism, the CRRU are striving to achieve a kind of nomadic thought that to use the Deleuze & Guattari term—“deterritorializes” itself every which way: theory melded with fiction, philosophy cross-contaminated by natural sciences (neurology, bacteriology, thermodynamics, metallurgy, chaos and complexity theory, connectionism), academic writing that aspires to the future-shock intensity of jungle and other forms of post-rave music.

They used of K’s as in kyber punk as opposed to cyber punk, Kode in place of code. This usage of K was to distinguish themselves from the US version of Cyber, tainted by the suspicion that it’s all just a cover for building an infinite world in which to play with an infinitely real Barbie playmate . Tainted also by the psychedelic light movement, Necropronte, Wired etc. They were into numerology and a practice called hyperstition(hyperdub?).

Kode 9 is long rumored to be writing a book on sound as weapon, though no doubt distracted by his success at the moment. The track that contains the most hints as to this is ‘Backwards’, available in one of my back shows. This vid is also worth checking out.

This is scribbled while cooking dinner and getting ready to go the the gig – the rice is roiling so see you later ….

This weeks show is based around the fact that one can mix pretty much anything with Dubstep. This elasiticity is what I like about it. So it’s a mix of one dubstep tune followed be something that isn’t and it doesn’t get more not dubstep then Kirsty McCall. It’s also about messing it up. In the last part I’m playing dubstep at 45, which I started doing ’cause it’s hard to buy good tunes in the 200bpm region. I’ve grown to like the sound and the idea that it’s a way out of the orthodoxy that can quickly grow up around a genre. It’s Ok most of the way, but there are some slips as I was tired from a six O’Clock start, college, and a beery evening with the lesbians after the International womens day march.

2. Kirsty McCall – Mambo de luna -Mint royal remix (breakbeat pop)
3. G Squad – Assumptions -Skream remix

6. Robert Hood -Minus(techno)
7. Skream -Chest Boxing
8. On Demand – Controlling remix(old hardcore)
9. I Don’t give a Dub
10. Tango and Ratty – Final Conflict(old hardcore)

Brass attacks #1

brass fittings

This weeks show starts with some of my favourite brass band tunes. Had the best dance I’ve had in years when I saw the Rebirth brass band in Tipitina’s in New Orleans, a couple of months before the planned forced relocation of the population- when I was there people were telling me it was coming anytime now and their requests for water proofing would never be answered.

Got turned on to the brilliance of post-Quincy Jones, post hip-hop brass there, perfectly exemplified by ‘Casanova’ from the Rebirths below. Could feel my hair blowing back in the wind of brass. Dj Halfdutch chose the Hot 8’s version of sexual healing in my end of 07 show(check it – at the start of one the of the January shows). Brass’s rise in people’s minds and use in music from Winehouse to punk to indie is very noticeable these days. The Tuba bass sound has a lot of colour and power and a tuba powered top class brass band have to be heard to be believed.

Later in the show a couple of tunes from Mc Beezy’s new mixtape, who along with Durty Goodz just keeps bringing it. The rest features class irish dubstep taken from the new !Kaboogie cd and the new Twoc Vinyl (see side bar). Other highlights for me are the mix out of Bombaman’s remix in to some old hardcore from 4 Hero( the mutability of dubstep fascinates me at least as much as the music itself) and then back into some crisp work from Bassclef. Also pneumonia from Fog has to be heared.Posted this show late as homoludo and homofaber were having a bit of tussle, which wasn’t resolved till late in the week.

1. The Young blood brass band – Tuba solo
2. The Rebirth brass band – Cassnova
3. The Hot 8 brass band – Fly away
4. The Dirty Dozen brass band – Caravan
5. Tom waits – Hang on St Christopher
6. Fog – Wallpapersinkorswim
7. Fog – Pneumonia – coldcut mix

8. Mc Beezy – Mr Cunstable
9. Mc Beezy – Mr Dingaling
10. Hatcha and kromestar- White noise
11. 2Bit – EXP5
12. Twoc -Old and grey
13. Forsaken – Boat noodles
14. Road kill vs Hijack– Never sleep
15. Solvent – Think like us – Bombaman remix
16. 4 Hero – Journey from the light
17. Bassclef-808
18. A-Force – Kiki
19. Ed devane- Dubcore maximus
20. Bassclef- 1471
21. Symarip – These boots are made for walking

The ruination of Dubstep by dirty K sniffin’ crusties – Discuss.

Intersting Dissensus forum discussion on same

“I also went to a squat party in west London over the weekend and heard dubstep rinsed on the main system, something that’s now a regular event at squat raves. This has been building for more than a year now, but in the last few months dubstep has properly crossed over into the free rave scene.

It seems to me that this has come from two different angles. The rig owners, having often spent tens of thousands on their soundsystems, are unsuprisingly eager to play music that shows off thier pride and joy in the most devastating light. Certainly I’ve never heard dubstep sound as physical and overwhelming as it did on saturday, played on maybe the best free party rig in the country – a rig that would destroy all bar a tiny handful of London’s club soundsystems.

But from the punters point of view, it seems that people have suddenly woken up to the amazing syncronicity between dubstep and ketamine, which I guess was totally unintentional on the part of dubstep’s originaters. But K and dubstep were born for one another, just like extacy and acid house… and watching dubstep’s sudden boom in squat raves has really reminded me of the lightbulb that went on over people’s heads in 88-92 when they first took Es to house music…”
