Walrii on NTS London Radio

September 21st, 2011

Dank Morass’ own Walrii the Walrus is currently in Great Britain spreading dank and splaying the blubber. Last Saturday, whilst in London he bumped heads with Gav, friend and founder of Jus Like Music Records which was behind the recent B. Lewis EP and the mighty Shankles Gully Foil EP.

Since April 2011, Gav along with Hip Hop producer BUG (check his latest EP, Mechanical Soul) have been running Jus Like Music show on London’s latest underground digital radio station, NTS which has been garnering much support through Europe in recent months. Featuring resident shows from badman DJ and artist Kutmah, psych-hop producer Bullion, forward-thinking steppers Dark Sky, CD-R sessions founder Tony Nwachukwu among many other notables, NTS has earned its title for being a solid source of quality music of all kinds.

Naturally, Walrii was chuffed to be asked to be a guest on the Jus Like Music show, a great opportunity he thought, to showcase the quality music that has been flowing from Brisbane and affiliated regions to UK and global listeners.

Come 5pm, Walrii and good friend and badass scratch DJ Alex Volume rocked up to Gillett Square in Dalston to meet Gav outside the NTS broadcast studio before the show started at 6pm. They found themselves at a tiny shack wedged in between a Jazz Club called Vortex and a North African Video store (containing a couple of dudes chilling, chewing Khat), not to mention an animated ping pong game taking place just outside the studio in the middle of the square, all to the sounds of the tasty UK Garage drifting from NTS.

After a brief catch up with Gav about beats and bobs (BUG was sick that day), 6pm came and it was time for the Jus Like Music show. The rest was history. Gav played some amazing exclusives from producers across the world in true JLM style and come 7pm Walrii stepped up to the decks… Walrii and Gav had a brief but positive chat on air at the end of the show about the Brisbane scene and with that done and dusted, it was time to trek across town to the renown theater venue, Koko’s in Camden for Daedalus, Kutmah, Hidden Orchestra and Luke Vibert…

Listen and download the whole show with tracklist HERE (check 17/09/2011 set) or download just the Walrii guest set and interview … Big ups to Gav, Jus Like Music and NTS for the linx.

More posts from Walrii’s travels shortly…

Chained Walrus Mix

July 28th, 2011

Walrii put this mix together in 2007 and it is still one of our favourites. It documents the beginning of an exciting time when IDM and Hip Hop were meeting in a semi-cohesive way. Some of the concepts are a little clumsy but do not lack vision by any means… This one is more for the headphones.¬†Hope you enjoy!

Free Beats n’ all…

June 30th, 2011

More treats for y’all… Following the mighty Under the Sun EP, the Science Project single Waves featuring Billie Weston on vocals comes through. A lush beat with lush sub-bass and lush vocals with an Ital version included. And free too! Not to mention that The Morass’ own Walrii contributed a remix for the single. Check the download below…

Also you may or may not have checked out the Bob Marley beat tape that was a free release by Dub Temple records last month… On this beat tape Walrii’s beat “Raw Hyde (Small Axe Rerub)” was featured. Inspired by this tune, resident Dank artist, Mr Joe Baker aka Archi Lancaster aka Cornish has produced a visual accompaniment for the track. Much love to Joe for this great piece of visual art.

And the last treat comes in the form of a remix of the Walrii track “Whirlpools” featured on the Ender Records 2010 free X-Mas compilation. The man at the helm of the remix is a heavy-weight new comer called Epoch. Emerging from his lab in Christchurch NZ, Epoch creates some of the most forward thinking bass music on the scene, released or unreleased. This is a fine example of his distinct rhythm, texture and execution. Make sure you keep an eye on this boy, hes one to watch…

Ender and Dub Temple Records release free compilations

May 20th, 2011

Some local fire has been circulating lately with 2 compilations being released within the last month. Dub Temple, started by Morass affiliates Science Project and Ender Records championed by Herts, have both blessed us with this local heat in the form two tasty compilations both of which feature Dank Morass’ own Walrii on original productions.

Click cover art to download the comps.

Firstly, Dub Temple is conceptualising the roots of remix culture in a series of beat tapes that pay tribute to the greats of Jamaican music. The first beat tape is comprised of local, national and international beat makers who make their own interpretations of Bob Marley’s back catalogue, the man who brought reggae to the world. The Bob Marley Beat Tape features such a variety of broken rhythms and bass illustrating not only the potentials in the art of remix but also the depth of talent amongst local producers in Brisbane and their affiliates. Big up to The Temple!

The 2nd compilation is brought to the masses by the Ender records camp… This is a promo that shows the great music from the label and its bright future. A collection of dubstep, breakcore, 909-electro-bass, hip hop and atmospheric experimentation. Check it out!

Science Project live at Bar Soma supporting Mount Kimbie…
