Break the core

I've been listening to a lot of breakcore and drum and bass lately, so it's no surprise that when I found myself possessed by the urge to throw together a new mix, it ended up being... breakcore and drum and bass. After slaving away into the wee hours last night, I proudly present:

DJ Abstract 8: Black Eye Mix

It's pretty nasty. Lots of ragga and jungle with some breakcore and evil tossed in for good measure. Not to mention a nice little joke at the end...

01 Soundmurderer - Bad Sound
02 Christoph De Babalon - Nightlife
03 DJ Throttler - Elements
04 Venetian Snares - Find Candace
05 2nd Gen - Malady Made Simple
06 The Bug Vs The Rootsman - WWW (Tech Level 2 Remix)
07 Rusuden - Membrane (Enduser Remix)
08 Noisia - Monster
09 Ed Rush & Optical - Bacteria (Pendulum Remix)
10 DJ C - Billy Jungle
11 Com. A/Wicked Act - No Heathen (Ghetto Plazma Mix)
12 Kid 606 - The Illness (Album Mix)
13 Tech Level 2/Wayne Lonesome - Who Wan Seek War
14 Napalm Death - You Suffer

Yep, that's Napalm Death's "You Suffer". All 2 seconds of it. Somehow it seemed appropriate, given breakcore's roots in grindcore (at least in my opinion). Anyway, if anybody would like a copy, let me know.

Dancing matilda with me:

Various - DJ Abstract 8: Black Eye Mix
(takes you out into the alley and beats you 'til you beg for death)

78bpm - Red Moon
(extremely quirky jazz-inflected downtempo from Thailand)

Rekhmire - The Deviant Lounge
(if CHUDs did triphop, it would sound like this)

Rachel Kann - Ptolemaic Complex
(spoken word set to dark soundscapes)

Rachel Kann - 3 New Shits
(more spoken word with tracks courtesy of Enduser)
