I recently discovered the Boom Tschak Podcast – a very fun series of episodes that feature some of the more cutting edge dance music that’s been spilling out of the electronic music scene lately. Though I’m not usually a fan of straight-up music podcasts (because, well, most of ’em just play electro house and the same ol’ dubstep we’ve all heard a hundred times) this show is a real treat! Basically, each episode is like a full-on mixtape! Lately, I’ve been hearing a lot of footwork jungle (or jungle-footwork, whatever) which I’ve been ALL about lately, here at Bassadelic.com
Want to hear an episode of Boom Tschak right now??? You do??!!! Ok, click below!!
(You can also download ’em, and take your footwork jungle and bass on the go!)
I asked Marcus (the creator and DJ at Boom Tschak) to give a few words about these fun podcasts, and he had this to say:
In my podcasts I generally follow a concept and explore niches of jungle and dnb. The aim is to create something exceptional, that you come back to listen to again. I´m into Juke / Footwork for quite some time now and wanted to record a set to introduce people to that sound, who come from a dnb background, just like myself. So the classic Chicago school isnt really represented. I also left out the more experimental tracks from the Planet Mu and others, because I wanted a danceable selection. And I stuck with 160bpm, so some tracks from the dnb camp were also kept aside. In dnb I ususally play a lot of jungle-inspired tracks, so this color is also prominent in the set. Mixingwise I do my usual thing with long transitions, trying to create something new by layering and equing out.
Feel free to correct my english!
Well, I didn’t feel the need to correct the dude’s English, it was pretty understandable :)
Thanks for the words, and the dope selections, Marcus!!!
That episode I just posted is my favorite so far, but it’s definitely not the only one. I went to the official site for the Boom Tschak Podcasts, and found some info on the newest episode, as well as a track listing… (WHICH IS HEAVY ON THE FOOTWORK JUNGLE) :
The Juke is on Myom: In his latest podcast he presents one hour of finest Juke-Drum&Bass and Footwork-Jungle. It´s all about crossing boundaries!
Lately the likes of Fracture, Om Unit / Philip. D. Kick, Machinedrum and many others experiment with fusions of contemporary Drum&Bass and Oldschool-Jungle with the sound of the Juke & Footwork movement that developed in Chicago out of sped up Ghettohouse.
