Drum & Bass, Have You Heard This?, Music - March 31, 2014 HYHT: X-Treme Drum ‘N’ Bass Mixed by Phantasy and Breeze

Dubstep, Have You Heard This? - October 26, 2013 HYHT – Another Planets Air – Floyd ft Charlotte Dobre

Although Benny Benassi can be credited for getting Vancouver Island producer Floyd into electronic music, this offering featuring Charlotte Dobre luckily in no way resembles Satisfaction. Dropped at this year’s Shambhala during Subvert’s set, Another Planets Air was the perfect partner to the...

Canadian producers from the West have been killing it in 2013. With guys like Defunk, Fat Pat, Neighbour, Subvert, Smalltown DJs, Knight Riderz Mark Instinct, and the whole Tenpin Records crew holding it down in all forms of bass, it’s no surprise Western Canada has spawned another Beatport chart...

Glitch, Have You Heard This?, Other Music - April 1, 2013 HyHt – Kraddy – Into the Labyrinth Dub EP

I’m stoked to showcase the new EP Into the  Labyrinth Dub from Kraddy and Heavyweight Dub Champions, because it is really good. The No Comply Dub track is worth the price of the EP alone, but unfortunately the only way to check it out is to go to iTunes and give a listen there. So in...

Glitch, Have You Heard This? - January 21, 2013 HYHT – Skeewiff

Skeewiff are definitely not the newest kids on the block! These two have been rocking the funky Austin Powers / Anchor man jazz flute, lounge-hop breaks since the late 90s. With a ton of releases taking any party back to the timeless feel of a 60s or 70s, fusion party of funky big beat breaks...

Drum & Bass, Have You Heard This? - January 14, 2013 HYHT: The Upbeats – Diffused (Official Video!)

What can be said of the powerhouse New Zealand duo that is The Upbeats? Since meeting in high school back in 2001, Jeremy Glenn & Dylan Jones have been collaborating ever since. Hustling hard under the monickers Terror Snake & Downie Wolf they then formed The Upbeats in 2004. With...

Have You Heard This? - December 24, 2012 HYHT – Krampfhaft – Spit Thunder

I could only shake my head when I first saw the tragic cell phone video of DJ Shadow unceremoniously booted off stage at a show in Maimi pop up on the web. The patrons of Miami’s Mansion Nightclub’s evening was cut short when DJ Shadow was informed by promoters he was playing...
