Joker – Gemmy – Guido

These three are doing it for me right now; they are bringing a mad Dr. Dre style funk to the 140 bpm dubstep / grime template. They have been at it for quite a while now but hell they are kicking this year off well.

First up is Joker for a start he has one of his sickest productions Digidesign dropping on Hyperdub next month but then what really got my ear was this mix:

‘Hope y’all all like it about 45 mins of wow sound MIXED MY ME Track listening coming soon no hype ting just good muzik’

Heny G - Delayed Style
Silkie - 7-1
Joker & Ginz - Purple City
Joker - Psychedelic Runway
Joker - Gullybrook Plain
Joker - Digidesign
Guido - Tango 140
Gemmy - Espaniola (SOMETHING LIKE THAT )
Gemmy - The box Remix no.2
Gemmy - BT Tower
Gemmy - Back 2 the future 2012
Gemmy - ........
Joker - Do it
Joker - Early Morning
Benga - Buzzin
RSD - Naked Mario Kart
Skream - Unknown
Silkie - Weird Piano Quest - The Unknown
Rude kid - Are You Ready (instrumental)
Maniac - Three Crows
Joker & Rustie -Play Doe
Joker - Untitled.rsn

That’s how he described it anyway. It’s maybe the best mix I’ve heard him do apart from his Bristol Rise Up and Generation Bass sessions on Marry Ann Hobbs Experimental on Radio One. So many bangers and so much great music it has to be heard.

Gemmy next, he is Joker’s mate (these three are all from Bristol) they have been making tracks for quite some time together and they are still young’uns. Joker’s mix nicely showcases a lot of Gemmy beats for you to check out so do that… What’s exciting me the most though is the fact that Gemmy will be dropping the Supligen EP on Planet Mu pretty damn soon.

Guido is the third part of the puzzle, he is rooted in a mad grime based future R&B kind of area, not unlike Joker and Gemmy but then has a sound all of his own too. Check this out:

‘yo whats poppin peeps just joined the forum, heres a 29 minute mix ive done... hope u like it PEACE guido’

Tantalized - Guido
Beautiful Complication - Guido, Aarya & Ruthless
Chakra - Guido
You Do It Right - Guido
Orchestral Lab- Guido J
ohnny 5 - Gemmy
Mad Sax - Guido
Do It! - Joker
Tango - Guido
Digidesign – Joker

It’s one of the most addictive mixes I’ve heard in a while, I must have listened to it about 5 times the day I downloaded it. The stand out tracks for me are; the amazing Beautiful Complication as it really adds some sexy vocal soul that is sometimes lacking in dubstep and grime beats. Orchestral Lab is another beauty that needs a shout out, I’ve heard rumours that it’s going to come out on Peverelist’s Punch Drunk label but I have no idea how true that is.

So there you go the Purple Trilogy, check them out.
