The Remixes Out Now!

On May 14, 2012, in News, by Mineral

The two massive remixes by Ben Kama and Defence are finally out. Ben Kama’s remix of my track Reach For The Stars is a really dope dancefloor track. Defence’s remix of “One Still Remains” is a perfect liquid dnb roller. I’m really feeling both of these tracks and I’m so glad that they’re finally out on In Da Jungle -recordings. Thanks to Ben Kama and Defence for the remixes, much appreciated!

Recommended album, Icicle – Under the Ice

On April 20, 2012, in News, by Mineral

Just had 3 cups of coffee and spent some time listening to drum’n'bass at juno. Man, there’s some really good music out there… Especially loved the album “Under the Ice” by Icicle out on Shogun audio. It’s released on 2011 but somehow I had missed it totally. Better late than never… Really great atmospheric music. Check below:

Things are about to get heavy, as we celebrate the 100k visitors at mineral.fi with an absolutely brilliant free dnb track. The track “Tree” is produced by a Finnish artist Aki Haapaniemi alias Dak (Lightless recordings), and it’s filled with rough bassess and amen breakz. After being mastered by Macc at subvertmastering.com, the track is now available exclusively here at mineral.fi.

Dak’s tracks have gotten massive support from various DJs worldwide and his Dak EP for Lightless Digital 2011 was a huge success. However, Dak has announced that he decided to step away from producing dnb, so this track will be his last release.

If you like the track, please show Dak some appreciation -> like this post & spread the word!

At his early teenage years Lauri Hynninen aka St. Laurent was introduced to drum & bass by the boy next door – how romantic! After listening countless hours to the newly released Timeless by Goldie and things coming out from Good Looking Records, there certainly was no turning back. It was exactly those exciting drum rolls, amen variations and deep punching basslines that made him fall in love.

In addition to being a big coffee enthusiast he’s also spending his spare time running the monthly Funk’it club and being part of the Science HKI cru. And this is the key point to the musical variety of this gentleman.

Apart from drum & bass, he’s collecting music from soul and funk to jazz and house. Still, the main focus is in drum & bass – all sorts of it. As he puts it, “If it’s jazzy or has a lot of atmosphere and amen break, I probably dig it!”

I’m very proud to present the Free Track of The Week #14 by a Polish dnb artist Radicall. The track “Plus” is a really catchy and deep track with excellent atmosphere in it. A recommended download!

Radicall – Plus [download mineral.fi_free014]

Radicall – Plus by radicall

Krzysztof Golinski aka Radicall is a Producer, dj and founder of Nightworks.

In love with the music since day one. His early productions were heavily inspired by jungle/jump up sound, later he induced himself to deeper and heavier timbre of drum’n'bass. In 2002 he became one of the finalists of “Made In Poland” – producers contest which revealed biggest talents of that time. It was his premiere as a producer and a dj under a nickname which he kept till now – Radicall..

In the meantime his music was still evolving – as a result of his constant search of new boundaries and ideas “Forgotten Horizon” came into being, side-project mainly focused on ambient, flowing, “between dream and reality” kind of sound. His d’n'b repertoire changed. Melodic, trancestep inspired sound was slowly replaced with deeper and heavier neurofunk and atmospheric landscape. In his solo project he focused on deeper, setting-up new boundaries in atmospheric-dnb sound, heavily inspired by neurofunk, technoid, ambient, classic electronic and ocean of other interesting music.

In his sound space there is one inherent element. It’s deep and full of warm vibrations Katee’s vocal, which perfectly highlights an emotional charge of his music. First of all, music is a matter of imagination, his tracks got very vivid character and they’re infused with very specific emotional charge. His mixes combine energy, dynamics and techstep/neurofunk severity, electrostep melodiousness with deeper breath of atmospheric mood…

This week’s Free Track of The Week is by a really special guest Furi Anga from Finland. I’ve been a fan of Furi’s moody dnb production for a long time, and I’ve been playing his tracks in my mixes a lot too. This marvellous track “The Human Project” is all about what Furi does best: moody, melodic and minimalistic dnb. Check it out!

Furi Anga – The Human Project [download_www.mineral.fi_free013]

Furi Anga – The Human Project (2011 / FREE DOWNLOAD) by Furi Anga

Furi Anga alias Antti Viitamäki is a deep soul explorer from Finland, Scandinavia. Listening to his music one gets transported into a melancholic fairy world – sometimes true and beatiful, sometimes dark and grotesque. He gets heavy influences from ascetic finnish nature. “Cold scandinavian moods delivered in a form of drumandbass.”, as Furi describes at his site Furianga.com.

I’m currently working on a collaboration track “Awakening” with Furi, and it’s gonna be really good! I’ll let you know when it’s finished.
