What’s Been Going Down – On Solid Dose

2013 Oct Audio-BoardWe have a diverse prescription of musical medicaments for you to indulge in this month. Let us introduce you to our latest course of treatments right here…right now…

First up this month we want to introduce you to our ongoing Solid Shows feature where, every month, each member of our Solid Dose Crew tell us which events they’ll be attending. You can see our Solid Shows Selection Calendar at the bottom of every page and we want You All to get in touch with us by Facebook and Twitter to tell us if you’re going so we can get a crew together!

See this month’s Solid Shows here.

Our featured artist in this month’s Solid Dose Spotlight is Tempt Fate, a Glaswegian based producer pushing his ’emotive house’ sound in 2014 and sharing his advice for new electronic musicians thinking of making a start in the scene.

See his Spotlight feature here.

Our first Solid Dose Mixtape is a triple deck Drum n Bass barnstormer, taking in several sub-genres over an array of patent mixes – on top of that we have detailed DJ advice from our crew member Sonnex about how the mix was performed for you guys to learn from and critique.

Listen to our Mixtape and learn here. Follow us on Soundcloud and Mixcloud.

Kicking off our Solid Reviews we’ve re-lived two sell-out events headlined by Basement Jaxx and The Prodigy.

To melt away those winter chills our SD Crew members have compiled a selection of House & Techno Winter Warmers.

Listen to them here and make sure you tell us your own!

The first of two retrospective articles this month is a trip down memory lane to relive Dizzee Rascals breakthrough hit Stop Dat along with a look at how Grime has changed as a result.

Next up our SD Crew member Saundersz tells us all about his experience clubbing in Berlin @Berghain in the first instalment of his ongoing feature on the German EDM scene.

Our second retrospective takes an encompassing look at Drum n Bass super-label, Metalheadz, from the label’s inception to present day. We give you multiple doses of Metalheadz music over the years and you can see exactly what makes this label special.

Read our Solid Focus article about Metalheadz here.

Finally we have an article to tell you how you can join our Solid Dose Crew because we want more writers and contributors to start build our community.
