SYLUS!!!!! Trans:verse 017

Print PDF
Transverse presents Sylus on TVR017. He is a newcomer to breaks; however, Sylus is a UK drum and bass producer from South London who is now venturing into breakbeat. On this release there are 2 storming breakbeat tracks. Grind is the casino online standout peaktime track. It grinds away with a huge lead sound complemented with gnarly bass and crunchy beats. This tune has that rough transverse sound. To follow up grind comes a tune called X Hed, which is a growling number that is groovy but a bit more relaxed than grind. Breaks fans be on the lookout as Transverse has more heavy breaks to come from Sylus!!

Review by WinoWarrior

ALL ABOARD!!! First call for the Intercontinental Bass Express departing sunny Miami, Florida. The IBE will be boarding at and worldwide on September 29, 2009: Destination-BASS!!!

Debonaire and Darxid  - The Intercontinental Bass Express EP

That's right ladies and gentelmen, your eyes do not decieve you.  In a magnificent cosmic collision of epic proportions, the reigning overlord of filthy Electrobass has exploded head-on with a mastermind of Electro-technical design.  Thats right, the legendary Debonaire and the one-and-only Darxid have come together to get the party bumpin' and movin' on the right track.  Welcome to the International Bass Express, a journey emersed in gut-wrenching Bass and deep silky synths, brought to you by a name synonymous with longevity, quality, and expertise: Debonaire Records, Inc.

Your ear-drum pounding, breath-consuming journey on the IBE will consist of five, that's right five, spectacular destinations:

01: Intercontinental Bass Express (Westbound Mix)
02: Mouth On The Speaker
03: Always Two
04: Break It Down
05: Intercontinental Bass Express (Eastbound Mix)

ALL ABOARD!!!  Now let's take a look at where this futuristic funky freighter is going to be headed on this Bass-fueled journey into Electro nirvana.  And don't worry, the IBE is a green-friendly hypersonic transportation device that runs soley off of face-throttling bass steam and heatwaves of etheral rolling synths.

First Stop:  Intercontinental Bass Express (Westbound Mix)

The locals love this destination for it's laid back atmosphere, but once you dig down a bit, what you find is a deep warm landscape of rolling beats and sharp tight stabs.  Bringing this smooth atmosphere together seemlessly with the poppin' beats and stormin' synths is what the local breakers call "The Juicy."  And they would be right!  Topping this off with artfully executed vocoding makes for what breakers all over the world are bum-rushing dancefloors to strut their skills to, one hell of a "juicy" destination.

Second Stop:  Mouth on the Speaker

Arriving here for a night-tour, what you will find is the tremendously abundant and notoriously shadey wildlife.  The day only lasts for one fleeting hour here, while for the rest of your visit, you will be immersed in a dark and luscious landscape of blizzarding syths and pounding bass kicks that work together to lead you to a breathtakingly crafted cityscape of omnipotent Electrobass and brutal battling robots.  We have been invited to taste the sound, drink of it, for it is the fountain of youth...

Third Stop:  Always Two

Upon exiting the IBE please watch your step as the syth-sweeper runs day and night here cleaning the streets of ill beats and priming a sonic canvas for chuggin'groovin' bass rolls and mezmorizing vocal oration.  Interestingly, it is for these very reasons that you will find locals dancing in the streets, and on the sidewalks, and in the coffee shops, and at the market....You get the picture, enjoy the ride.

Fourth Stop:  Break it Down

Welcome to the home of Electro-Land!  This is the worlds largest theme-park dedicated to sick mind-blowing Electro and face-melting bass.  A notoriously favorite ride here is the Vo-CoDeLux.  This ride will race you through a pasture of sparkling sonic textures before careening into a freefall helicopter spin of spine-numbing force and speed.  The end of this insane ride gives you a chance to battle it out with your fellow occupants in a no-holds-bared bboy battle to the death!  Many man enter, one man leave.  We have the technology...

Fifth Stop:  Intercontinental Bass Express (Eastbound Mix)

There is but one word to describe our last destination ladies and gentlemen: BIG.  This is the biggest stop on the Intercontinental Bass Express's five city tour.  From the moment you set foot on the polished marble pavement here, you will experience nothing short of awe and disbelief.  Bring your dirty money, leave the braziers at home, this entire city is actually one massive casino-train!  Althought this is true, all bets are off, as the tearing bass will pound and throb most players into oblivion and the atmosphere will have even the most modest begging for more, more, more!  Throw in the "freaks servin' dranks" and "speaker-lined walls" and what you get is a cocktail that will blow yer frickin' mind!  Nuff said.

We do hope that you have all enjoyed the tour.  We will now restart the tour by re-visiting the entire tour! It's called repeat, and you are going to find yourself hitting it, again and again and again...


Debonaire and Darxid  - The Intercontinental Bass Express EP


Debonaire & Darxid brought to you by Debonaire Records, Inc. have teamed up to bring one of the most complimentary duos that the Electro scene has seen in a long while, if ever!  The subsonic penetrating bass and top-notch production skills of the legendary Debonaire combined with the quality technical expertise and eloquent atmospheric ambiance of Darxid creates a flawless universe of Electrobass sound.  The two have melded seemlessly together their own distinct styles and sounds to create more of the epic dancefloor bombs that Debonaire Records, Inc. is known for dropping.  You've got to get your hands on this one folks. 

Quality + Creativity = Debonaire & Darxid: International Bass Express

 Available worldwide anywhere you buy digital music !!!

What is Breakbeat

Breakbeat (sometimes breakbeats or breaks) is a term used to describe a collection of sub-genres of electronic music, usually characterized by the use of a non-straightened 4/4 drum pattern (as opposed to the steady beat of house or trance). These rhythms may be characterised by their intensive use of syncopation and polyrhythms.



In the late 1970s and early 1980s, hip-hop DJs (starting with Kool DJ Herc) began using several breaks (the part of a funk or jazz song in which the music "breaks" to let the rhythm section play unaccompanied) in a row to use as the rhythmic basis for hip-hop songs. Kool DJ Herc's breakbeat style was to play the same record on two turntables and play the break repeatedly by alternating between the two records (letting one play while spinning the second record back to the beginning of the break). This style was copied and improved upon by early hip hop DJs Afrika Bambaataa and Grand Wizard Theodore.This style was extremely popular in clubs and dance halls because the extended breakbeat was the perfect backdrop for breakdancers to show their skills.

In recent times, the term breakbeat has become synonymous with the many genres of breaks music which have become popular within the global dance music scene, including big beat, nu skool breaks and progressive breaks. DJs from a variety of genres, including house and techno, work breaks tracks into their sets. This may occur because the tempo of breaks tracks (ranging from 110 to 150 beats per minute) means they can be readily mixed with these genres, whereas the comparatively fast speed of jungle and drum and bass (160-180 bpm) may have restricted the utility of these subgenres to DJs playing slower-tempo music. Some artists well known for breakbeat include The Freestylers, NAPT, Dj Loopy, Pendulum, Soul Of Man, Dj deekline and wizard, Ben & Lex, The Breakfastaz, Ctrl Z, Stanton Warriors, Dj Icey, Freq Nasty and Plump DJ's.

Breakbeats are used in many hip hop, rap, jungle, and hardcore songs, and can also be heard in other music, from popular music to background music in car and jean commercials on the radio or TV.
