as far as I know pixelord coined the phrase ‘russian dream team’ a few weeks back when hud mo and doom played moscow, supported by a troop of fierce russian beatmakers, aka the ‘dream team’. if only we could run shows like that down here.
anyhow, i thought it would be nice to post a selection of tracks from said dream team including a couple by our new guy on the block, 813. i don’t think all of these guys played that party, but they’re all great. and from russia.
let’s start with pixelord, and this remix of brighton local, and all round nice chap, manni dee…
dowdy popped up on the radar a few weeks ago with this synthy beast
dza’s starshark is pretty darn unstoppable
and so is sunpunch by lapti to be fair
and g5 music just put out this ep by damscray which some heat on it
and then there’s 813. of course i’m biased, but the ep we’re releasing from him later this year is next level, no jokes. five or six tracks backed with a slugabed remix. i’m so dam excited about it.
for now you can check these two beats… (or download this ep he did for the rad collective)
If you don’t have time to click and stream all these links then this amazing compilation by error broadcast is a great way to get to know the astounding russian beat scene.
