Bottom Forty

Bottom Forty is a mirror ball in New York, a basement in Chicago, a cruise in L.A. and a night in the desert.

Alci – Rope A Dope / Track-a-Day Giveaway

giveaway 3

Tonight is the big night!! The Bottom Forty Decibel Festival showcase is tonight at Chop Suey, and in honor of this years festival kick-off occasion is the last of our track-a-day giveaway. Today I’m sharing one of my favorite slammers from Alci, a rather fresh producer who currently has a gorgeous 2-part EP out. This track is rooted in a simple house format, but with a heavy techno hitter right before the 2 minute mark that always gets the dance floor going, if you are a DJ this is a must have for your record bag, enjoy!

Go get down with PAVONE / RIFF-RAFF / EJECA / PILLOWTALK tonight at Chop Suey!

Enter “Beyond” via Walton and Hyperdub

Written by
August 29, 2013

Very intrigued by Walton’s debut album on Hyperdub. I respect hearing several styles and genres placed together in a distinct new way, and Beyond is a perfect example. You’ll catch some pieces of underground dance music; house, grime, garage and bits of R&B. But it’s the overall Beyond package and effortless execution of these elements that dazzles me. Walton has created his own environment, with enough diversity to attract a wide range of listeners.

Wheez-ie – Let’s Get Weird

I say it’s time to raise the tempo here on Bottom Forty. One artist bringing some serious heat in the juke realm is Wheez-ie. I’ve been carrying his tracks around a lot these days; including “Keep Yer Chin Up” in my set for Decibel Festival 2012, and using the acid juke wonder “Dreamz” at parties. I did an extensive interview with him for Disco Droppings last week, so if you’re enticed and wanna learn more, I got you.
