A1 Bassline will play in the Generation Bass program Friday 18 September.

A1 Bassline already had an Artist Exposed. But We wanted to let you know that you can find a new free download and a mix here.


Raffertie will also play in the Generation Bass program Friday 18 September.

Hailing from the south coast and now based in Birmingham, Raffertie is the 21 year old DJ and producer whose innovative and down right filthy style has been smashing up the UK’s underground dance music scene for the last couple of years.
His sets include everything from uplifting pop classics and 90’s rave anthems to the filthiest house, garage, grime and dubstep tracks, creating huge dance floor reactions that earned him a residency at Hold Tight in London.

Get Raffertie’s Rob da bank mix here for free.



Anti-Pop Consortium at ZXZW and free mp3


Hip hop artists Anti-Pop Consortium are coming to Tilburg in September!

Copy/paste from Pitchfork:

‘The New York skronk-rap crew Anti-Pop Consortium reunited a couple of years ago, and they’re getting set to drop Fluorescent Black, their long-awaited comeback album and first full-length since 2002’s Arrhythmia. Big Dada will release the album on October 13. The trippy sci-fi album cover is above.’

The Pirate’s Dillema book (free download)

Cool book about what pirates are and where they got us as society:

The Pirate’s Dilemma tells the story of how youth culture drives innovation and is changing the way the world works. It offers understanding and insight for a time when piracy is just another business model, the remix is our most powerful marketing tool and anyone with a computer is capable of reaching more people than a multi-national corporation.


Ideas that started within punk, disco, hip-hop, rave, graffiti and gaming have been combined with new technologies and taken to new heights by the generations that grew up under their influence. With a cast of characters that includes such icons as The Ramones, Andy Warhol, Madonna, Russell Simmons, Pharrell and 50 Cent, The Pirate’s Dilemma uncovers, for the first time, the trends that transformed underground scenes into burgeoning global industries and movements, ultimately changing life as we know it, unraveling some of our most basic assumptions about business, society and our collective future.” (source)

Here you can download an electronic copy of the book. The price is entirely up to you.

Free download: ‘One of my kind’

Conor Oberst (best known from the band Bright Eyes) has a new album coming out in May. It’s called ‘Outer South’ and it’s pretty good. What’s even better: the documentary ‘One of my kind; The story of Conor Oberst and the Mystic Valley Band’ is available now as a free download. You can get it right here, all you have to do is enter a valid email address. It’s worth it!

“Guitar-tech Phil Schaffart began informally video taping Conor Oberst and the Mystic Valley Band in Tepoztlan, Mexico in January of 2008.

Over the next 12 months Schaffart, when he wasn’t tuning guitars, captured hours and hours of footage as the band traveled and performed around the world. By December the band was back in the recording studio, this time outside of El Paso, TX, making their new album “Outer South.”

Schaffart not only filmed these recording sessions but also sat down with the Mystic Valley Band for a series of interviews to discuss making music, life on the road and the year that was 2008. This 60-minute presentation is the results of his efforts.

The Mystic Valley Band would like to thank Causecast for their help in making this viewing possible.”
