Krytikal Interview & Mix

I first had the pleasure of meeting Krytikal at the 'Movement' night at Club PST (Digbeth), and then at various places including the Listening Sessions events. He's been a supporter of the zine and has contributed tracks for various Futurepast Zine projects. His productions are meticulous, I seriously mean that, he's got a high standard of production in the music that he makes. His initial releases were solo, but recently he has worked with 'Goosensei' and also 'Yilan'. His music has been released on labels such as Area Recordings, and his tracks have been aired on the notorious Rinse FM a few times too.

Random stuff...

I've got a few things I wanted to mention for this blog post, a mixture of tunes, events and stuff….

Tunes


Snakes & Ladders 3A few weeks back I listened to a show on www.jungletrain.net it was the Skutta Records show and there were a lot of mashed up breakbeat type tunes. I'm a sucker for that kind of stuff :-) The guys involved also played at Amusement 13 for a Listening Sessions event and they rocked it to the max. Anyway, I heard about a compilation album that featured tunes of that type of style ('mashed up breakbeat' haha). The album is called 'Snakes & Ladders 3', I think it will appeal to fans of Rupture (a club night based in London) and Scientific Wax Records. The compilation features 25 tracks! And everyone is pretty much a killer track too. I've only had it a few days so it's difficult to determine a favourite just yet, but I noticed a track called 'Amen Guidance' by Rumbleton which I remember hearing at Rupture a good few year…

Interview with Fushara

Fushara has been a supporter of the zine since it's first issue way back in 2010. Last year sometime he sent me a batch of tracks which I thought were absolutely awesome (they still haven't been released - yet!). I noticed that there seemed to be a change in the music he made, it felt like it was more techno influenced. I've been listening out for his music since then, he released an album on Omni Music in November 2014 (http://omnimusic.bandcamp.com/album/the-ohm-series-fushara-test-one-lthe-ohm-series-fushara-test-one-lp). Once again the music very techno influenced and almost tribal. Recently I was lucky enough to check out his latest album 'A Wasteland of Memories'.




It's a masterpiece. I heard the music and I thought I had to definitely find out a bit more about the person behind the music……

Who are you? Tell me a bit about yourself, and describe yourself with 3 Youtube/Vevo videos.
