This weekend is going to be ultraspecial, as we’re bringing Ulterior Motive (Metalheadz, Subtitles, Critical) as our guest to the Pressure Club at Finland, Tampere, Yo-Talo. Make sure you come to the party, as it’s gonna be big, I’m telling ya!
BLAST FROM THE PAST
Here’s a short clip that I found. It’s myself playing at Pressure3. Hope this sets up the right mood for this friday!
NEW SCIENCE PODCASTS BY FANU AND ESC
If you didn’t check these yet, Fanu and Esc did two fresh podcasts for the Science Crew. Both are amazing mixes and very much worth listening. Check ‘em at www.sciencehki.net!
We have another great free track up, by DJ Mauoq from Rome, now based in London. Unknown Recipient is a nice atmospheric track with some techish spices innit. Check it out!
Mauoq – Unknown Recipient [download mineral_free_019]
“I started DJing at student parties in Italy in the early ’90s and fell in love with DnB shortly after.I was exposed to music softwares in the late nineties and that slowly but steady became my obsession. I’ve played many clubs in Rome and London, but now I’m concentrating more on production. After years fiddling with various electronic music toys it’s only recently that I started feeling relatively happy about my music and my first release is coming out end of March on Green Queen Music.
Generally speaking I would like the world to know that drum’n'bass has evolved. There’s now much more to it than just rattling drums and overloud basslines. This is what I try to do with my podcast and ultimately with my own production.
This track “Unknown Recipient” was written almost entirely two years ago and I thought that a little polish would have made it a nice listen. I think I was right. I hope you agree. Enjoy.”
I’m really digging your style Mauoq, keep it up! There’s some really cool tracks in Mauoq’s soundcloud, I’d recommend you to listen “Aerosolid”, a track that has gotten dj support from Stunna.
Check more of Mauoq’s production, quality mixes and more:
This week’s Free Track comes from the UK by an artist called J Melodic. Jay’s songs are heavily inspired by the melodic side of drum’n'bass, just like his artistname says. Grab a coffee and start listening “Key Tempo”. Njoy!

J Melodic is a UK based Dj and Producer. He started DJing back in 95 playing DnB and Uk Garage/Soulful House. After practising his DJ skills for five years, J Melodic naturally progressed in producing DnB/soulful House and other genres in 2000.
Jay’s music is influenced by many artists from the melodic side of dnb. He says, that he gets his inspirations and influences from LTJ Bukem, Lenzman, mjcole, Goldie, Fabio, Marcus Intalex, mood2swing to name but a few.
There’s a lot of variation in J Melodic’s production. I’m really digging his (WIP) We run tings, an old school track at Jay’s soundcloud. Check it out at his soundcloud.
