This mix is an 80+ minute exploration into the fusion of drum´n´bass with dub techno & dub. It´s more of a deep flowing, laid-back affair at 170bpm to cool off to. Remedy yourself with a dose of sub bass and chill atmospheres. Listen closely to discover a rare facet of drum´n´bass music.

I try to follow a clear concept with all the mixes that I put out there and I´ve done quite a few that explored the connection of dub and drum´n´bass. The common influence is obvious since jungle started using reggae basslines and dub production techniques 25 years ago, which spawned all sorts of obvious and less obvious connections.

But it is rare that dnb productions take an inspiration from what techno did with dub since the 90s. Probably timing was an issue too: Dub techno became unpopular just a little while before the explosion of dubstep became the major influence for dnb artists, who experimented with more minimalistic structures and room for sounds. As a result a certain flavour of halfstep and autonomic dnb became an interesting playground for innovation in the late 2000s, but it had little to do with dub techno.

So I searched for tracks at around 170 bpm that deliver a certain sound: Not too dark, negative or aggressive, but not too much reggae-warmth either, rather a digital cool. Tracks also had to shift their focus away from heavy beats to the dub elements but also not fall into the halftime dub area. So this mix sits somewhere in between the minimal dnb scene, that still uses typical dnb beats and the ambient scene that has abandoned beats completly.

I never was and probably never will be a big techno fan in general, which means I only listen to a very small fraction of what´s out there, so my observations might be flawed. But I´ve always liked the Berlin-centered dub techno scene around the Hard Wax store, producers Ernestus and von Oswald with their many aliases (Rhythm & Sound, Basic Channel…) and labels like Thinner and Scape. Today in drum´n´bass we have Samurai Music Group in Berlin, which incorporates influences of this particular sound in their releases, but mostly explores very dark atmospheres. A more fitting output between techno and dnb comes via the Hidden Hawaii label. Nordlabel, that is featured with tracks by Dissident, is also from Berlin.

In its entirety not all the 85 minutes are dub techno influenced, but most of it is and it all comes together nicely, I think. If you know any interesting dub techno-influenced tracks at 170 bpm that I missed, let me know!

Myom – There and Back Again. A Jungle Tale (Boom Tschak #18)


This is my goodbye mix to the summer of 2016 and inspired by the amazing time we had at Sun & Bass. It´s Drum and Bass with one foot in the Jungle and atmospheric, positive vibes. A flow of history-ladden sounds, samples and breaks in their updated 2016-version. I compiled it quite spontaneously and I´m still amazed, how it all just fell into place.

From 160 bpm it steadily builds up to 170 bpm and back again. It all starts in a deep dubby cave, where Crypticz & Itoa let their synths bubble from the ceiling. Then Dead Man´s Chest´s washed-out retro sounds flush you out into the open jungle, where Chimpo & Ticklish throw in some Funk & Hip-Hop samples for a good party vibe, before things steadily build up for an epic and heavy climax with Intalex´ Jupiter. Soulful sounds by Total Science and Djrum calm it all down again and the tempo slows back down back to where it all began and everything ends with reminiscences of the 90s.

Myom – 15 Ton Butterfly (Boom Tschak #17)


Heavy heavy, heavy! In seinem neuen Mix verarbeitet Myom einige seiner Drum´n´-Bass-Favoriten aus 2015. Die Auswahl startet mit einigen gigantischen Halfstep-Nummern, arbeitet sich dann durch einige Slow/Fast-Stücke um dann in einem Breakbeat-Sturm aufzugehen, der sich dann wieder beruhigt.

Mit 23 Stücken in gut 45 Minuten ist die Session sehr abwschslungsreich und es finden sich jede Menge interessante Neu-Kombinationen von Tracks, die man bereits lieben gelernt hat.

Semuta – Light in Darkness (Boom Tschak Podcast #14)


The mix on Soundcloud

Semuta entwickelt über eine Stunde einen geschmackvollen Mix aus deepem, kühlem und futuristischem Drum&Bass.

Bio: Nach einem Jahr in London und Kent war Semuta 2001 vollständig vom Drum´n´Bass-Feuer erfasst. Schnell entwickelte sie sich zum Naturtalent an den Decks und schloss sich 2002 der tempo90-Crew an. Ihren Künstlernamen hat Semuta aus Frank Herberts ‚Dune – Der Wüstenplanet‘ entliehen. Semuta ist darin eine süchtig-machende Substanz, deren Effekt – zeitlose, anhaltende Exstase – erst durch spezielle atonale Vibrationen hervorgerufen wird, die als Semuta-Musik bezeichnet wird.

Myom – Halfsteppin´ (Boom Tschak Podcast #13)


The mix on Soundcloud

In this mix Myom showcases an ever-evolving continuum of roots conscious but progressive, non-nostalgic productions in the 170 bpm range. It is a compilation of darker drum´n´bass tracks that expand the boundaries of the genre, by layering their rhythms over a half time feel and incorporating influences from footwork/juke, trap, dubstep and jungle.

Fresh tunes by classic artists like Digital & Spirit, Dom & Roland or Amit meet a new generation of productions from the likes of Om Unit, Fracture or Stray. If you need prove, that drum´n´bass is still an interesting electronic music genre, that hasn´t dumbed down to just another generic, in-your-face club sound, listen carefully.

By carefully choosing his selection, layering tracks to carefully transform atmospheres and craft evolving vibes, Myom slowly draws you into the mix: At first you´re just tapping your foot, then nodding your head until you find yourself bouncing frantically around the room, before you are released with a stomping, emotional finale.

Musical explorer Myom´s podcasts don´t just promise a musical journey, they deliver with meticulous selection and mixing. His more than 15 years of experience behind the decks shine through his podcasts, that document his continuing effort to push the art of the dj mix. His recordings are unedited live takes with slight imperfections, because Myom favors ‚real‘ over ‚perfect‘ anytime.

The archive of Myom´s podcasts from 2004 onward can be found here.
