Rubber Stamped Mixes

96 - Drum and Bass - Brighter Days - July 2017
July 04, 2017 05:32 AM PDT
After finishing off the house mix with mainly jackin and soulful tunes yesterday I decided to make another mix before our trip to see Norman Jay at Electric Elephant festival in Croatia tomorrow. I couldn't not do a Drum and Bass mix and I spent the early hours of the morning filtering loads of tunes and while I didn't have as long as I would have liked to do my research I was really happy when it came to recording the mix with the output. This is just over 2 hours of my favourite Drum and Bass, jazzy, rolling, funky, uplifting, progressive beats with fat baselines and vocals. Record labels include Hospital, RAM, 3beat, UKF, Hybrid and Sun and Bass recordings to name a few. Tunes from London Electricity, Hybrid Minds, Sigma, Calibre, Hugh Hardie, Nu:Logic, etc.
I will be back later this month with more music. In the meantime get your system on, connect the biggest sub woofer you can find and turn this badboy up!95 - Jackin House - Obonjon Island - June 2017

Back after a timeout for Gracie girl

Waiting for my mixes is turning out to be like waiting for bus.......... My 3rd mix in a fortnight is what I am calling Chilled House. The 40 tunes I have handpicked take you on a 3.5hr journey through a few genres of down and then more medium tempo house music. Genres include progressive deep house, commercial house and what I call deep house which is not this stuff from last few years thats been branded deep house when its actually commercial but genuinely deeper house. There are some old skool, garagey and handbag house riffs throughout this mix. With music amongest others from KANT, Robert Babicz, Tom Middleton, Vincenzo, Way Out West, Jody Wisternoff, Jamie Antonelli, Sandy Rivera, Ad Brown, Ian Pooley, Nora En Pure, Sebastien Leger, Larse, Yotto and EDX it#s a bit like a box of chocolates.
This set would be ideal to listen to by the pool, at a houseparty, while you are working or most definitely with a few sundowners. It would work as a decent warm up set with the last couple of tunes ready to link into a main room pumping progressive house set. I am thinking of recording my next mix as such so i can then link the two together to make a long player. Watch this space!
Turn it on, turn it up and enjoy the journey!Tracklisting

I started with a blank canvass 3 days ago and after trawling some records shops and finding lot of differnet tunes of many genres, I decided to go on a disco vibe. I narrowed down my crate to the following 25 tunes and spent some time on Friday morning moulding them together into a cheeky mix that is ideal for summertime.
The mix is 130 minutes long starting at 114bpm and finishing at 124 bpm. There are some classic disco originals remixed by Joey Negro. Original artists include Cheryl Lynn, Grace Jones, Robert Palmer, Thelma Houston, Beverley Brown etc. While the theme is disco I am still able to mix it up with genres ranging from disco, nu disco, soul, funk, indie dance and house variations of.
As usual turn it up and enjoy. Let me know if you like it!

It has been 2 years since my last Drum and Bass mix, can't believe that! I needed some big basslines and rolling beats so over the last 3 weeks I managed to narrow down 100 tunes that I liked and then finally bought 70. These got further whittled down to 60 after iistening to the whole tune in AIFF version once purchased. Then I had to programme the mix which was really hard because getting any sort of flow with that many tunes is difficult. I spent hours playing around with the flow until I was happy. I actually made a few last minute changes live in the mix but I am convinved that the journey works.
This 4 hour mix is what I would play at a festival with time to build a set and rock a crowd all afternoon. I try to take you up and down a bit early on starting with lots of vocals, progressive D&B and some rollers then it picks up later on. The mix is pretty varied and icnludes liquid, rolling, soulful, jazzy, funky, progreesive drum and bass and some lighter jungle. It features artists inclduing Roni Size, Logistics, Calibre, LTJ Bukem, London Elektricity, Sub Focus, Sigma, Hugh Hardie, Fred V and Grafix amongst many others.
Turn those sub woofers on, turn the volume up and enjoy!Tracklisitng:

WARNING! This mix is a different from usual and probably not one for the purists. I was very much in 2 minds about making it but I have had a few requests for some main stream house dating back a while and the other weekend some mates were asking what sort of set I would play as a main set at a big outdoor beach party with a more commercial crowd. Figured it was a good test of versatility and this is the end result......
There's a couple of link tunes to pickup from a pretend warm up act and these are what is today called deeper house but they are not very deep in my book. Then the mix kicks straight on into upfront house music with lots of well known riffs, vocals, piano melodies, etc. This is pumping commercial house music with at times a garagey twist along the same vibe, proper drunk feel good main room dancing tunes. Takes me back to the mid 90s with all the legendary bucks boys we were 16 and going to commercial house clubs like Visage in Hemel, Kudos in Watford, etc. they all were playing this 125bpm house sound. I end with a 2003 progressive uplifter just for good measure. I have to say it difficult to play commercial house these days and not cross over to EDM (errrrh!) but I think I just managed it, all about the garagey basslines.

This is 5hr long player combines my last 2 mixes starting with a mixture of melodic deep house and nu disco. The set gradually builds moving to some quality progressive house, then again at the end the tempo picks up as I move it into some pure uplifting goodness! Ideal for a house party where you want a soundtrack that progresses.
Wherever and whenever you listen, make sure you turn it up!89 - Hope Rises - Rubber Stamped Nu Disco and Deep House - August 2015
July 27, 2015 11:19 AM PDT
After the success of my last podcast a few days ago i was inspired to push on and make another one. I started record shopping with an open mind and found myself drawn to some nu disco but also some deep house that was more on the melodic / funky side than what i would originaly have called deep house (more minimal) 5-10 years ago. I bought 25 tunes and this mix starting at 114bpm and finishing at 124bpm (fairly downtempo) aims to fuse the 2 genres smoothly together all the way through the mix rather than taking the easy option of disco first then deep house..... These tunes are ideal at a bar when you first arrive to get the feet tapping and head nod and by the end you'll be dancing. They would also work really well on holiday with a few sundowners or in the park on a summers days.
The mix features tunes from artists including Nora En Pure, Sharam Jay, Booka Shade, Tube & Berger, Timmy Vegas, Jamie Antonelli, Maceo Plex, Sasha and Dubai's very own Raxon.
For now that's enough talk, it's time to get dowloading, enjoy the disco deep house blend and of course make sure you turn this one UP, the music always sounds better when your speakers are singing clear and loud!

With my beloved Sands and Sam away in SA as its fairly hot here in Dubai, I am in that quieter time of year again and finally I was able to spend a few days record shopping. After a couple of house mixes and a big beat bouncer earlier this year, I fancied making something more progressive and uplifting and the end product is 3 hrs long, using 33 mostly new tunes. I did however manage to sprinkle in 3 or 4 oldies for good measure including the last tune "I am" by Chakra albeit a new A&B remix. This is a classic for me as I first purchased the original on vinyl way back in 1997 this was when we used to go to Peach at Camden Palace or Gallery at Turnmills back when trance was trance! The mix starts slow almost classical then into some deeper progressive stuff but builds quickly to full on progressive house where it stays for a good while before I pick up the tempo towards the end moving into some big room stuff and some full on trance at the end. Turn it on, turn it UP, sit back and let the goosebumps flow!

87 - One Way Back - Rubber Stamped Breaks - April 2015
April 15, 2015 10:42 PM PDT
As we roll into April, it just felt like time for fat, rolling, funky breakbeat goodness..........
I have always been into my breaks from the minute as a teenager that I first heard those big juicy beats, kick drums and rolling basslines, I was hooked. My first taste came during my early trips to Brighton when me and the Bucks Boys used to party at the beach club where a certain Fat Boy Slim ran his "Big Beat Boutique" promotion. That early big beat was just perfection to me and I followed the genre ever since and Plump DJs and Stanton Warriors debut albums both released at a similar time (A Plump Night out and The Stanton Sessions) became legendary CDs that I owned and rinsed time and time again. Later in the mid 2000s at our JamBasha parties we always had a breaks and D&B room where we hosted headliners such as Drumattic Twins from Fingerlickin Records. Breaks have stayed with me ever since and it's interesting to see how the genre has developed after slowing down for a while.
I have picked 30 tunes which technically span genres including glitch hop (new to me!), tech funk, dubstep and breaks. If you were to categorise the breaksbeats on this mix , they would be split into tech breaks, some garagey sounding breaks i guess evolved from the newer garagey deep house sound that has been prevalent recently, some progressive breaks (I love my melodic uplifting sounds) and some old skool house piano jams with the classic breakbeat #piratejams.
The way I have blended the mix is so that I take you on a journey through the different breakbeat sounds, evolving as you get through the mix from 100bpm glitch hop to 138bpm full on pumping breaks. Go with it, you need to listen to the full journey to understand it.
It is a pleasure to say that I have included 5 tunes from JamBasha's own Chevy One who has worked so hard for so long and as usual hard work has paid off. Chevy has moved his way up the scene and as is now a leading producer of tech funk originally working out of the Lot49 stable with Dylan Ryhmes and Meat Katie he is now producing and remixing tunes with lots of other famous producers as well. Check Chevy out!
Now download the mix but remember this is not background music, turn it on preferably in a quality sound system with a beefer subwoofer, turn it UP, turn it up again, relax and enjoy the big beat journey!Tracklisting:1.
