Mr.50 interview + Glitch.FM guest mix

Reeces Pieces has been getting a lot of love from the UK Glitch Hop fam this year. Now Bristol-based producer Mr 50 has released the follow up to The City of Sin, The Juicy EP, on Australia's Adapted Records. It's about time for a guest mix and interview innit?

Hello Mr 50! Tell us about the name, where did that come from?

I wish there was a clever or insightful answer to this, but it was literally me sat down working out a name that a nice ring to it. I had interest in one of my first tracks and I had to think quickly. I’m very happy with my choice though and I think it works well.

You've just released a new EP on Adapted Records How would you describe your style of music?

1995 Hip Hop and Drum & Bass were my first loves as a kid, and I think the funk influences of that style of hip hop and the sound design aspects from D&B are pretty front and centre in my music. I think it’s fair to say that there’s always going to be a strong element of funk & disco in my tracks, no matter what genre I work with. Classic funk techniques and sounds always creep into my productions, even when I’m not going for a funky vibe, so it’s definitely something my brain is wired to.

What first turned you onto glitchy bass music?

I had a 4-5 year break from producing (I was just tinkering blindly with a sampler and sequencer before that) and when I started again in 2010 I was trying to see if the style that I had in my head already existed. I’d been imagining what I was calling ‘hard funk’ that borrowed lots of synth driven hip hop styles. A few google searches later and I had Opiuo blaming out my speakers. Needless to say, that was an enjoyable find!

What's the scene like in Bristol?

Bristol has always been an amazing place for someone into music (of all genres). I swear, if you polled 20 random people in a bar in Stokes Croft, I reckon half of them would be directly involved with music somehow! What I like about Bristol is that no-one is really into one scene, all genre’s intertwine together and thrive. Koan Sound and Culprate are two of the obvious examples of successful Bristol production outfits that have a big glitch hop feel but are nothing like the ‘classic’ glitch hop sound and cover a number of different tastes. The house scene here is really flourishing as well, with people like Eats Everything, My Nu Leng etc all leading the way internationally. Having that in such close proximity and being able to randomly bump into the artists you’ve been raving out to in your studio for the last 3 months is always going to be a good thing. I think it’s why Bristol is so successful when it comes to music.

How was Boomtown this year?

Sick! It’s probably the craziest festival I’ve seen and the production value is unrivaled. I was really happy we (Riddim Fruit) were playing on the Boombox stage, which is a good example of the level of production work that goes into the festival - a 40 feet high ghetto blaster is pretty damn cool I anyone’s book and I got a real kick out of that.

What's the craziest gig you've ever played?

Boomtown was pretty crazy and I’m a relative newcomer, so I’d have to say there. Not just for the venue, which was insane, but there was a lot of crazy shit going on en masse. Everywhere you looked in fact! If you like your festivals in a complete other world, then go there.

What kit do you use?

I have a few bits of hardware (Push, Condensor Mic, BSII Synth etc) and a handful of small midi controllers that all plug into Ableton. Ableton is my dear friend. I tend to change which of the controllers I use when producing. Some tracks are done using just a midi keyboard, others will be me using a Launchpad (for example) and just messing around with crazy shit to get something different out. Having said that, a midi keyboard is the most important tool I have, apart from my beloved Ableton.

I use a log of plugins and like most people, after a bit of hoarding you settle into the ones that you use as core tools and will appear on almost every track. It’s way better to know a handful of good ones inside out than always use the latest thing. Sylenth is my go to synth because it sounds fat and using Push’s encoders to programme it gives me the hands on ‘hardware’ control that I want. Alchemy & Massive are great for sounds that need some crazy modulations, mainly because they have MSEGs (multi-stage envelope generators). There’s nothing you can’t do using FX and automation of those FX, but there’s something about those tools being inside a synth that make me much more likely to use them to good effect. The free stuff from TAL Audio is as good as any commercial plugin I think, especially the Noize Maker and the TAL Reverb, which I’ve been using loads recently and love. The TAL-X-UNO-LX is a really good emulation of the Juno 60.

I have plans to buy more and more hardware, especially analog synths. I don’t agree with the synth snobbery out there and I think plugins are fantastic. Regardless of where my music takes me, I really love the hobby and gear side of it all and I’m planning on having a good selection of analog synths in a drool-worthy studio in the coming years! Specifically, top of the shopping list is a Juno 60 and a Prophet 05, although I’ll probably get the Prophet 08 desktop instead. Anyone who’s into that side of things, check out the Future Music studio tour with Aeroplane, it’s actual gear porn (he also has the 2 synths I mentioned above if you want to see what them in action).

I love talking about production so I’ll stop before this gets too long


Who's inspiring you most at the moment?

A shit load of people! Gramatik pretty much never fails to inspire me. A lot of recent inspiration is from the house scene, which is really grabbing me (and the rest of the world right now) – I literally cannot get enough of some of the Nu Disco, or whatever term people are using. Pretty much every track coming out of Hot Creations is giving me a boner. Gorgon City, Dusky and Kolombo are heavy on the rotation at the moment as well.

I think Glitch-Hop has got to a level where it’s popularity is getting bigger and bigger – it’s stock is rising – and with that comes the influx of tracks that all sound way too similar (mine included, I think). It’s definitely due some changes and I can’t wait to see what that natural progression becomes because it has a really solid foundation and great funk focus.

Who would you recommend we listen to that we might not have heard of?

Apart from the people above, I would recommend that everyone check out B. Bravo and a Bristol producer called Arkist, both of which were introduced to me by a close friend and producer called Flywalker. He will definitely someone to look out for in the future and hopefully we’ll get on and do some tracks together shortly.

You've had a few EPs in quick succession, what's your next in the pipeline?

Yeah, I was really pleased to get 2 EPs plus a couple of singles out in 2013 – that was pretty much what I had set out as the goal for the year, so I’m pleased it happened that way.

Right now I’ve been trying out stacks of different styles and approaches so I don’t know exactly what’s next, I had hoped to have pretty much finished the next release by the time Juicy came out on Adapted, but it hasn’t flowed that way. I wasn’t happy with the quality of what I had on the table so I’ve gone back to the drawing board and just focussed on experimenting a bit. I made a track the other day which I’m trying to get a specific MC to rhyme on and that feels like a real dirty hip hop banger, but then I’ll make one that’s all out 4x4 dirty disco. One track / well developed idea wouldn’t be out of place in a techno set… It’s all up for debate right now!

I definitely want to release more glitch hop, but it will be part of it, rather than just that. An album is probably the best way I can offer up a few different things whilst keeping it a coherent release. The classic tempo range of glitch hop (90-110bpm) is one that really works in my head, so it will always be there!

I’m working with a Music Publishing label as well for TV & Sync music production, which has just started and something I really want to pursue.

Other plans involve a collective/events entity I’ve been planning for a while, I’ve let my brain slowly form what I want it to be in the background and not focused too much on it, but it’s something I really want to do so plans are being made.

Where are you playing next?

Good question, I’m just sorting out the next couple of months now actually so I don’t have all the details to hand, but I’m playing in London shortly alongside the Plump DJs (I believe) and just talking about playing in a very large geo-dome for NYE, which sounds awesome!

There’s a plan ahead to tour Australia in March and I don’t mind saying that I’m also very keen to do a US tour next year if that became an option, so any management / promoters out there that are remotely interested in me – get at me!

Catch Mr.50's guest mix on Glitch.FM this Wednesday 11 November 2013 from 10pm-12am GMT.

Wednesday, 8 May 2013 #62: Volatile Psycle interview

This week on Glitch.FM Your Niece is hosting a half hour of turbo powered bass filth from Volatile Psycle. Here's a little interview with the lads who topped the Beatport glitch hop charts for two weeks last year with their big swing single Gramophone.

Please introduce yourselves..

Volatile Psycle are Dan Lawrence and Jimmy Chick.

How would you describe your style of music?

Our music is varied, from dark and techy drum'n'bass to upbeat Glitch Hop. Usually we end up more on the filthy side of things though!

Where are you from \ living in the UK? What's the scene like there?

We reside in Norwich, a city in Norfolk in the south east of the UK. The Glitch scene isn't massive at the minute down here, but it is growing all the time!

Your last single Gramophone was #1 on the beat port glitch hop chart for some time - how did that feel?

Our friend and collab partner 'Charged' had a big hand in that track too, so he was able to share our success which was cool. Exposure for us, especially on You tube has grown massively since that track dropped.

What first turned you onto this style? Any particular artists or tracks?

We are both big lovers of Drum'n'Bass and hip hop, so when we became aware of Glitch it really struck a chord. First time i heard Koan Sound's 'Max Out' i knew this was something we had to get our teeth into together...

Where do you like to play the most?

We like to play anywhere! not fussy its great playing in your hometown, but it will be wicked to play different places and meet new people. We are hoping on going out to Holland and Russia later this year for Drum'n'Bass and Glitch Hop nights respectively.

What's the craziest gig you've ever played?

Craziest gig we played was at a night called Color in Norwich, warming up for DnB legend DJ Hype.... we split it into half and half Glitch and DnB, and it went down an absolute storm! Real shame the nights had to stop at the Waterfront there due to policing issues....

For all the tech geeks out there - what kit do you use?

We use Reason, and love it!

Who's inspiring you at the moment?

Inspirational artists have to be Koan Sound and Noisia, probably quite cliche but they are that for a reason! Spor/ Feed Me and Doc P are pretty smokin' too! But the leader of the pack is Liam Howlett. The mans a don.

What's your jam right now?

'Once Again' by Gerruzz, out on Adapted.

Who are you looking out for musically in 2013?

In the Glitch world this year - Seva, Mandrake, S Dexter, I.Y.F.F.E and pretty much anyone on the Adapted roster....

What's the next project in the pipeline?

Our first E.P on Adapted Records, 'Revolution', is out on 27th May, all 3 tracks are featured on this mix, all our glitch hop is now exclusively signed with Adapted which we are really chuffed about, the manager Corey there is really pushing things in the right direction! We also have some DnB/ Dubstep projects to finish off for a couple of other labels, so we are all stations go at the minute!

Where are you most looking forward to playing next?

Really hoping to get some international gigs under our belt, and with the help of our manager Max Allerhand (for bookings please contact: that will hopefully become reality quite soon! Russia and Holland look likely destinations in the near future...

Drop Beats Not Bombs, Birmingham, Saturday 4 May 2013: Beta Test, DJ Switch, Shamanic Technology, Spenghead, Skanky Panky Records

Terrorbyte from Beta Birmingham looks ahead to the 10th anniversary of Drop Beats Not Bombs -  a party with a purpose in Birmingham. Catch Harley on the Basstronics Stage with DJ Switch, Shamanic Technology, Spenghead, Skanky Panky Records and Beta Test Records live.

It seems so unreal to say that Drop Beats Not Bombs started TEN years ago but that is the truth of it.
So much has happened in that time, so many ups and downs behind the scenes, and I'm sure in all of your lives too. Blimey, there wasn't even Facebook, Twitter, smartphones or a coalition government back then.....

We have all come such a long way in the past decade but at the same time nothing has changed. Looking around, what do we see? More war, more death, more pain. Are the lessons ever learnt? Perhaps, when we all marched on London in February 2003 we should have done more than we did. Our mere presence and voice was not enough then and the lack of any change in direction from our elected government has had a significant effect on the protest movement as a whole, in my humble opinion.

Even so, I felt it would be wrong to let the ten year anniversary of the invasion of Iraq and the very first Drop Beats Not Bombs event go by without us coming together again. So Saturday 4th May we will ride the Drop Beats Not Bombs beast once more. The event will run from 9pm-6am.

I have a road in Birmingham all ready to be closed off with a warehouse space next to it. It has never been used before and, as we did so many times with Drop Beats Not Bombs, we will show Birmingham something new.

There will be one live main stage within the warehouse and five other stages out on the closed off street. There will be food stalls, pleasant and friendly security and as many info stalls as can be mustered. If you want to contribute something please do get in touch.

B.Visible: Glitch.FM guestmix & interview

VERY excited to have the legend that is B.Visible on the guest mix for the Morbidly Obese Midget this Wednesday on Glitch.FM. Here's an interview and the show archive!

Please introduce yourself... 

I'm a DJ, producer and graphic  designer from Slovenia, living in Vienna right now. I love nearly every kind of music, but i get mostly inspired by hip hop and electronic music.

How would you describe your style of music?

Must be something like hip hop based beats with synth elements. But that's quite difficult because I'm really not focused on just one style. Sometimes I make also straight boombap beats with scratches (like the Decktales project I'm running with a very talented producer and DJ from southern Austria called Stylestab).

What first turned you onto this style? Any particular artists or tracks?

Definitely Danny Breaks. I was totally blown away when i got the Dimension - 3D record. Also a big influence or probably the reason why I started to produce music was RJD2 with his Dead Ringer LP. After hearing this Record I really had the wish to learn the music production process.

What's your jam right now?

I can't wait for the new Bibio album. The track "You" can already be heard on youtube. Sooo good, gonna be my sound for the summer.

What's the scene like where you are?

It's OK, Vienna has like 5-6 solid clubs with good soundsystems and plenty of motivated promoters setting up really great parties.

What's the craziest gig you've ever played?

Haha, probably not good to talk on the internet about it.

Where do you like to play the most?

In Vienna definitely the Flex, because of the incredible sound. But in general I really enjoy to play at homeparties or small clubs with my closest friends, that's the most fun.

For all the tech geeks out there - what kit do you use?

I work with Maschine, a lot of software synths, sometimes Micro Korg, a SP 404, and for the coming EP I quite often used the Juno-106. Then I use turns for sampling and scratching, the very first Apogee Duet and some Adam speakers, that's it. Really looking forward to use also the iPad for my future productions. A friend showed me some really awesome tools recently.

Who's inspiring you at the moment?

The nice weather! The spring finally hit Vienna, after a long cold winter.

Who are you looking out for musically in 2013?

There is a young producer over here in Vienna called Salute. He is only 17 years old but is making incredible good and unique tracks. His new project will be released really soon and I  think it's gonna be massive.

What's the next project in the pipeline?

My new EP is coming in may via the Austrian label duzz down san. There will be also a strongly limited 7"  featuring 2 tracks of the EP.

Soundwise it's slightly different from my last release on Riddim Fruit. I think its a little bit more experimental but I still tried to keep it funky. You can hear two tracks of it in my mix.

I will also finish my 90s remix series called Sloppy Drive Puzzle. The last track of this free fun project will be available this month on Soundcloud.

Beats Antique interview


London's conscious party scene turned out in force for Beats Antique's stomping UK debut at :::Illumination::: last month. We caught up with the West Coast band to ask how they found it, and when they're coming back!

Please introduce yourselves... 

Sidecar Tommy and David Satori from Beats Antique.

How would you describe your style of music? 

Our style of music is combinations of old and new, opposites - electronic and gypsy DIY...taking experimental electronic music and wrapping in an orchestra!


Have you ever been to London or the UK before? How did you find it?

Have been before, but in this fashion, we are fortunate enough to have a bit of a following of people who have only been able to listen to our music as opposed to seeing us live, so we were able to run around with fans and ultimately have a blast with new friends! Our show was super fun and we can't wait to get back to the wondrous UK!

What's the scene like where you are?

Because this is the home of Burningman, there are lots of freaks, parties, fundraisers for Burningman camps, etc, so it has become a prevalent hub for electronic music producers with the likes of Bassnectar, Eskmo, Glitch Mob, to name a few that started here.

What's the craziest gig you've ever played?

I would say our first set at Burningman two years ago was bonkers, some say 20,000 people were there, such a crazy opportunity.

What first turned you onto this style of music? Any particular artists or tracks?

Amon Tobin put forth some amazing reworks of cinematic orchestral pieces that inspired me as a producer, along with DJ Krush from Japan - he taught me a lot back in the day...I used to ride my bike around New York City with my headphones on listening to what was the beginnings of abstract hip hop...a lot of the same ideas that were sprouting up back then still ring true today - make a sick beat, cut up a melodic sequence, and layer killer bass and atmospheric tones...


Who's inspiring you at the moment?

We feel fortunate to have amazing friends as our inspiration! The electronic music scene is very supportive and has so many talented producers that we've been able to get to know. For Example. TIPPER, Bassnectar, Thievery Corporation, Apparat, ESKMO and many others. We also get inspiration from singer songwriters like Fiest, Bon Iver, Yeasayer, Lynx and many more.


Who are you looking out for musically in 2013?


For all the tech geeks out there - what kit do you use?

Mac tower, Ableton Live, Ableton Push, UAD plugins, Moog little phatty, Moog Slim Phatty, Micro Korg, Roland octapad, Kaosilator, Tama Starclassic drums, Roland vdrums, Akai Midi controllers, iPad, Turntable, Cdj, Battery, Kontact, Maschine, Dave Smith Mopho, Roland Handsonic...etc etc

What's the next project in the pipeline?

At the moment we are working on a new album due out in the fall, with a new show to go with it! Very excited about this one!

Where are you most looking forward to playing next?

We would love to come back to the UK! There is a lot of music lovers there! Hopefully we will be at some Festivals in 2013. Lets keep our fingers crossed !

Has Zoe taught you how to belly dance yet?

It's actually the other way around,we taught Zoe everything she knows!!!
(M.O.M: We're going to get the guys prove that next time they're here!)

Review: Koan Sound / Opiuo / ARP101 / Asa & Sorrow @ Jacks Club, London, 28 March 2013

“How was Bristol last night?” I ask Opiuo just before he plays. “It was incredible, one of the best shows I've played in ages” he enthuses. A home town return show for Koan Sound after two successive tours to the US and Canada, the after party was apparently pretty good by all accounts too. "Lots of our friends were out" Will from Koan tells me, grinning. London has a lot to live up to, but with a line up like tonight's it shouldn't have much trouble.

When we arrive with the UK Glitch Hop crew, Inspected Records’ Asa and Sorrow are playing to a dark, half-filled tunnel. We can only make out their silhouettes bobbing against minimal smoky purple back lighting. The music is deep and rhythmic, like everything dubstep used to be before it got angry and abused. Riddims keep building and layering throughout the rest of set. It’s impossible not to dance. I’d expected something more mellow, but am entirely satisfied with the energetic intricacy of what I get served. The tunnel fills up.

Next up is ARP101, someone I’ve been hoping to see since around this time last year when he released a few 80s infused synth-funk mid-tempo tracks. A bit like Bobby Tank a year ago, the first half of the set sounds distinctly West Coast. Lots of head nodding, popping, sluggish beats and Joker-esque purple sounds and washing synths. Heaven. The second part of the set falls into a bit of a trap, and I am ever so slightly disappointed not to hear more of last year’s boogified funk, but then that’s always the trouble with bringing expectations to the party. Tastes change.

“This is all a 100% original material” (or something to that effect) announces Opiuo as he takes the stage, and the energy switches straight up the minute the first stacks of bouncing funk jack in. You quickly get the feeling that this is the most fun dance music being played in any club in the world right now. So fat you need a machete to slice it. The place goes nuts to Ray Charles re-funked. Opiuo dances around behind the controls like a kid on a mini trampoline, drumsticks in hand. He uses them to effect on the pads in the build-up for ‘Robo Booty’. Some of the crowd may have discovered Opiuo for the first time through his Sly Fox remix for Koan Sound and there’s certainly a big cheer of recognition in the room when it comes in; the first sniff of the headliners to follow.  

“Are you ready to slow it down now?” he asks about two thirds of the way through. This is where the soul flavour really comes in, with all the vocal tracks from the recent Butternut Slap series. At some point there’s an ipad making noises. The climax comes with a Slurp and Giggle album track as the crowd lose their shit to the squelching skank of ‘Lost Moinal’. “Keep it moving like libation”. Then the jokes humour of Pharcyde’s ‘Yo Mamma’s So Fat’ rounds off the set with some good times 90s hip hop flavour.

The room's got almost as much raw, wall-busting, sweatbox energy as Oscar’s first London appearance at Whomp in October, but the bigger crowd is more reflective of his talent and he’s loving every minute of it as much as we are.

Jim and Will from Koan Sound haven’t left the stage all this time, enjoying the spectacle as much as anyone else. I’d heard that they tend to DJ sets rather than live, but that's often the case for acts just a few EPs in. I’m expecting them to be brilliant, ranging from from dubstep to d’n’b, but I’m still surprised and delighted by the variety, speed and effortless flow that follows. Staring off in mid-tempo territory, it’s not long before we hit classics by Habstrakt and Tipper, then change down into trap, the two step of Culprate’s ‘Two’, his remix of Freq Nasty’s ‘Dread at the Controls’, up into Reso, Snoop and Dre, ‘Funkblaster’, Foreign Beggars, Teknian, Om Unit’s ‘Kramphaft’ refix, ‘Meanwhile’, Beasties, ‘80s Fitness’. 

This might sound like a now familiar list of classics, but the set constantly shifts, comfortably skipping around tempos and style, never standing still. The impression is of impeccable wide-ranging taste and tight skills honed over the recent months on the road. In the middle of all this Opiuo launches himself off the stage into the waiting hands below and crowd-surfs to the middle of the room. 

The last 20 minutes has everyone dancing their socks off to shakin’ d’n’b and neurofunk. Never boring, always interesting. Right on point.

You can’t help but be excited by whatever’s next for Koan Sound (An album? Live show? A cross genre EP?) They've certainly proved that they've got the talent to join their heroes Opiuo and Noisia on the world stage and enough fans already to be able to showcase their friends to new audiences in the UK and overseas. Here’s hoping that they continue to get the support which has seen the likes of OSWLA label boss Skrillex take it interstellar. “This one is about to drop.”

*Koan Sound were voted winners of no less than three UK Glitch Hop Awards 2012*
Best Producer, Best Live Act and Best EP

*Opiuo is winner of five international UK Glitch Hop Awards 2012*
Best Producer, Best Live Act, Best EP, Best Track, Best Remix
