'THE GREENROOM' Guest Mix from TREEX: September 17, 2014

On WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 17, 2014, STUNNA dives deeper into the month with yet another exclusive installment of 'THE GREENROOM' on BASSDRIVE Radio. In this edition, we turn our attention to PARIS, FRANCE where we find a talented producer and DJ known as TREEX and are treated to a special guest mix recorded by him especially for this program.

Born in 1984, and raised in FRANCE, TREEX has been involved in his native country's DRUM+BASS scene for many years. Lending his hand at the organization of events and DJing with his friends from AMPLITUDE, EN2, EXPLORATION, and QUALITY LABS, TREEX put his hat into the production ring in 2010 and began making tracks. In the time since, he's honed his sound and engineering acumen to pen original works for such labels as SOUL DEEP RECORDINGS, INFLUENZA MEDIA, and LUV DISASTER RECORDS, TOTAAL REZ, and LIQUID BRILLIANTS. With positive support of his music from names like TECHNIMATIC, VELOCITY, SCOTT ALLEN, MACCA, DUOSCIENCE, DJ CHAP, PHAT PLAYAZ, SALARYMAN, LOZ CONTRERAS, MISSFORTUNE, and the rest of the BASSDRIVE crew, be on the lookout for exciting new releases from TREEX in the coming months, including material with fellow countryman SEEREAL (under their collective 'KORUS' guise).

Join us this session for a fresh guest mix from TREEX which includes some of his favorite tracks doing the rounds as well as a number of brand-new original productions. Tune in!!

'THE GREENROOM' Guest Mix from IMPISH: September 3, 2014

On WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 3, 2014, STUNNA kicks off the month with another special edition of 'THE GREENROOM' on BASSDRIVE Radio. In this installment, he points the compass towards MOSCOW, RUSSIA where he finds upcoming producer, label owner, and DJ IMPISH and taps him for an exclusive guest mix.

IMPISH (aka ROMAN) is a multi-talented artist who's seen his native MOSCOW scene flourish with the popular 'BURNING SERIES' club night (which was mentioned a bit more in-depth in the recent write-up for the SKYWEEP guest mix), the successful OCCULTI MUSIC record label, and his own growing production discography. With original tracks and collaborations with artists such as INTERSOUL and VASILISA, IMPISH finds time to manage the OCCULTI MUSIC imprint with fellow countryman CUTWORKS and is finalizing plans for the label's fifth vinyl release (which will include two samplers containing music from ELECTROSOUL SYSTEM, CUTWORKS, MR. AGBO, and IMPISH himself). Also, about to be unveiled, is a brand-new vinyl DEEP HOUSE/TECHNO sub-label of the OCCULTI MUSIC family called 'MAYAK' (which means 'lighthouse') and will feature a packed roster including ANTON KUBIKOV, ZEFZEED and many other like-minded producers.

Join us this session as IMPISH takes us on a journey including some of his favorite tracks doing the rounds as well as his own upfront production work fresh out of the studio. Tune in!!

'THE GREENROOM' In-Studio Guest GEECEE: August 27, 2014

On WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 27, 2014, STUNNA closes out the month with yet another special installment of 'THE GREENROOM' on BASSDRIVE radio. In this edition, he welcomes fellow long-time CHICAGO DJ GEECEE into the studio for an exclusive guest mix.

GEECEE (aka JEREMY WATSON) began DJing after being exposed to DRUM+BASS music in the late 90′s. After honing his craft at home, he was rewarded with his first residency at Club SHATTERED in COLUMBIA, MISSOURI. With the help of a few others, the TUESDAY night weekly “SYNKRONIZE” ran for 2+ years, ending in the summer of 2002. GC went on to hold residencies at a handful of other establishments, also in COLUMBIA. Throughout the years from 2000 on, he maintained his residencies and played consistently around the MIDWEST, always taking the crowd for a ride with his noted deep, energetic, storytelling sets. He started working on production in 2004 and has been breaking beats ever since. In early 2007, JEREMY moved to CHICAGO after the infamous 'BLACK BABY' fiasco. He was quickly accepted as a staple in the WINDY CITY BASS music scene, and played every major D+B club night before the end of the year. Being around so many like-minded individuals, he was motivated to throw shows again, this time helping to start the CHICAGO chapter of the famed KONKRETE JUNGLE organization based out of NEW YORK CITY. With a home base of the storied CAFE LURA, GC helped bring quality DRUM+BASS to large groups of heads. Fast forward to 2011: with his first record seeing a release on ST. LOUIS imprint UNITOVONE RECORDINGS with close friend and fellow producer BORJA, GC has been in the studio daily, putting in work. Presently, be sure to keep an ear out for more original productions from this talented DJ/producer of DRUM+BASS and beyond.

'THE GREENROOM' Guest Mix from MAGE: August 13, 2014

On WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 13, 2014, STUNNA returns with yet another exclusive edition of 'THE GREENROOM' on BASSDRIVE radio. In this week's episode, we turn our attention to the prolific producer (and GREENROOM favorite) MAGE and are treated to a fresh guest mix.

Hailing from the city of CHELYABINSK, RUSSIA, MAGE (aka KIRILL SHEYKIN) began producing DRUM+BASS in 2004 and finished his first collaborative tune with fellow producer DK FOYER in 2005 and the track was subsequently released on FOYER's album in 2007. In the time since then, MAGE now has more than 20 vinyl, CD, and digital releases under his belt.

MAGE draws his musical inspiration from the soulful and intelligent sounds of LIQUID FUNK, as well as the playful elements of JUMP UP and the aggressive side of NEUROFUNK to create his own signature sound within the fast-paced world of DRUM+BASS. Join us as we dive deep into an exclusive blend of upfront tunes and original creations from MAGE himself. Tune in!!!

'THE GREENROOM' Guest Mix from RED ARMY: August 6, 2014

On WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 6, 2014, STUNNA kicks off the month with another very special installment of 'THE GREENROOM' on BASSDRIVE radio. For this edition, we point our compass towards the WEST COAST of the UNITED STATES and find the multi-talented, SACRAMENTO, CALIFORNIA-based DRUM+BASS producer known as RED ARMY.

In the mid 1990's, RED ARMY (aka JAMES FUHRING), rocked audiences in seminal PUNK/HARDCORE bands MOHINDER and JENNY PICCOLO. It was during the latter that he accidentally discovered the sound of DRUM+BASS while in BERLIN, GERMANY on a EUROPEAN tour. JAMES was so blown away by this sound, he shortly sold all of his music equipment to buy a sampler, turntables and a mixer. The first two years were rough as he knew no one involved in D+B, only a local SANTA CRUZ radio show called 'THE METALLIC BLURP,' hosted by the ARGON RECORDS crew. JAMES, on a whim, emailed the radio show to ask if he could meet up with other like minds. There he would meet the other two members that would form the 3-piece, RED ARMY. Together, they would shortly set dance floors on fire with releases on SKUNKROCK, ARGON, PHUTURO, and eventually, N2O. The N2O deal soured on the crew, and it was beginning to be harder to work in the studio as JAMES relocated to SACRAMENTO, JOAQUIN would move back to SAN DIEGO to begin his film directing career, and JUSTIN would start what is now known as one of the largest electronic groups right now: THE GLITCH MOB. This left JAMES as the soul output for the RED ARMY moniker.

While getting nibbles for releases from a few labels, the years of 2005-2009 saw a hard time on D+B altogether. Labels were switching to digital formats and vinyl was becoming obsolete, folding a great deal of labels, including ones that were planning on new RED ARMY releases. These tunes still have never seen the light of day. In 2009, JAMES got serious again about the production side of the music and slowly started to release again on SIMPLIFY RECORDINGS and ONSET AUDIO, two SEATTLE-based labels which were solely responsible for getting his music back out on the dance floors. Flash forward to the present, RED ARMY is now being released on DUST AUDIO's sister label TURBINE MUSIC (both digitally and some soon to be vinyl releases), GROUND MASS, ONSET AUDIO (responsible for 7 of his current releases) and a slew of support from some of the scene's veterans and up-and-comers like BAIELY, DEXTA, MAUOQ, STUNNA, SPINDALL, HOMEMADE WEAPONS, CLIMA, INTERLINE, GREMLINZ, and REZA, to name a few.

Join us this session as we're treated to an ALL-ORIGINAL production mix from RED ARMY and be sure to pick up his new 'HIGH GRADE' EP which lands this MONDAY, AUGUST 4th courtesy of TURBINE MUSIC. Tune in!!!

'THE GREENROOM' Guest Mix from SKYWEEP: July 30, 2014

On JULY 30, 2014, STUNNA closes out the month with yet another special edition of 'THE GREENROOM' on BASSDRIVE radio. For this session, we welcome back truly one of our favorite artists for another special mix. As he readies his 'CONTRADICTIONS' album for CELSIUS RECORDINGS, settles into his new home in MOSCOW, RUSSIA, and celebrates his birthday this very day, SKYWEEP makes his third appearance armed with an exclusive guest mix.

Hailing originally from MOLDOVA, SKYWEEP has recently relocated to the thriving hub of DRUM+BASS that is MOSCOW and has become immersed in its network of creativity and nightlife. Here are a few words about these new experiences told by the man himself.......

"It started at the end of 2013. I was booked from MOLDOVA to RUSSIA for a big party in MOSCOW at the 16 TONS CLUB on DECEMBER 28th. It was a great party: big crowd and a very powerful sound system. I was introduced to many nice people there (DJ GROOVE - the father of D+B in MOSCOW; ENEI from CRITICAL; IMPISH and CUTWORKS from MOSCOW's own OCCULTI MUSIC label). It was a really amazing night and I decided to spend more time in the city. After a couple of months, I became a resident at OCCULTI MUSIC's monthly party named the 'BURNING SERIES.' It's a small, local underground DRUM+BASS event that's made a name for itself due to the welcoming atmosphere and warm, analogue vinyl sound. It's here where you are able to meet the label's artists, resident DJs, and the rest of the friendly music supporters. It's also where I met my friend from MOLDOVA, RON M, and the lovely DJ KRIZZZ. They are also residents at the 'BURNING SERIES' and we've had good times together. I now have upcoming releases coming on the OCCULTI MUSIC imprint and during my time in MOSCOW, I've also completed my forthcoming 'CONTRADICTIONS' album for CELSIUS RECORDINGS (landing this AUGUST). I have a track called "SELFISH" which I wrote here in RUSSIA that is included on a vinyl compilation for FOKUZ RECORDINGS titled 'FOKUZ BOX - SOURCE OF LIFE: EXPRESSIONS OF A SOUL' and is backed by a cut called "FURIA" by the producer HANDRA. This mix I've prepared for 'THE GREENROOM' is all about supporting my favorite labels: FOKUZ, CELSIUS, OCCULTI MUSIC, VANDAL, DIGITAL BLUS, JAZZSTICKS, TEXTURES MUSIC GROUP, FUTURE THINKIN, and more. You'll hear dubplates from these labels as well as brand-new music from myself as well. Have a listen!"

'THE GREENROOM' Guest Mix from THRASH PILOT + FRACTALS: May 21, 2014

On WEDNESDAY, MAY 21, 2014, STUNNA presents yet another very special edition of 'THE GREENROOM' program on the BASSDRIVE Radio airwaves. For this installment, he unveils a guest mix from two great UK-based DJ/producers representing the KILLSCREEN RECORDINGS label: THRASH PILOT and FRACTALS.

A former live act, THRASH PILOT (aka JIM KENNEDY) once performed at DRUM+BASS nights all across the UK. After moving to LEEDS representing a show on pirate radio station 'MOVE FM,' and now under the name MORPHEUS, JIM released on the now-defunct NU URBAN MUSIC label. After a long period away from the scene, JIM is now back again as THRASH PILOT and has teamed up with FRACTALS to launch the KILLSCREEN RECORDINGS imprint.

Having spent many years earning his stripes as a vinyl DJ in NOTTINGHAM, FRACTALS (aka JIM WHEATLEY) gave up the 1210s to push VINYL [ABORT] and their unique ABLETON LIVE mashup JUNGLE sound. Leaving the EAST MIDLANDS after a supporting slot on the CHASE + STATUS UK tour of 2010, FRACTALS slowly began the return to his roots and original passion: the dark side of DRUM+BASS. Taking influence and inspiration from the likes of SKEPTICAL, DUB PHIZIX, MARCUS INTALEX, and the legendary METALHEADZ label, FRACTALS' productions have been on rotation in clubs and radio worldwide and his contribution on the recent 'NIGHTSTALKER' EP on KILLSCREEN was described by MIXMAG as "slow-burning, tribal dub electricity!"

With an aim to bring fresh DRUM+BASS music to the world's dance floors, KILLSCREEN RECORDINGS owners THRASH PILOT and FRACTALS, alongside the talented JAMAC and the legendary DJ SAPPO have garnered positive support for the label's music from scene stalwarts DILLINJA, RANDALL, GROOVERIDER, BAILEY, MATRIX, FUTUREBOUND, SAVAGE REHAB, and NICKY BLACKMARKET (to name but a few).

Tune in this session as we're treated to an exclusive guest mix from THRASH PILOT and FRACTALS!
