Myom – Out of the Dark (Boom Tschak #21)

Out of the Dark is my drum´n´bass-mix for all the survivors out there. Vibes, atmosphere, flow and sonic storytelling that can lift you up, recharge you and give you a positive outlook.  At least that´s what it does for me.

2018 was another tough year for me and I didn´t manage to release even one mix. I had started compiling tracklists for four very different concepts though. The first I chose to record now is this atmospheric and emotional selection of tracks that I played out, (re-) listened or danced to in 2018. A bit like a diary because almost every track triggers a specific memory.

My mission: Leave hard, cold, dark and even dubby stuff out. Capture that classic futuristic soul and melancholy vibe that drum´n´bass always championed. Also: Spread positive vibes overall while avoiding cheesiness.

I always try to achieve what I think „the art of the mix“ demands and I´m quite satisfied with the result. Carefully crafted mixes are getting harder to come by – this is one. Mixed live on Serato control vinyls and an Ecler HAK320.

Myom – Steppers & Rollers (Boom Tschak #20)

The mp3 download

The mix at Soundcloud

The mix at Mixcloud


This set is a dancefloor-oriented selection of what I liked to play in the club throughout 2017. Stylistically diverse and covering many subgenres, it´s Drum´n´Bass at its finest, so just let it flow and take you places 🙂 Expect hard steppers, heavy bangers, rolling breaks, euphoric anthems and also deep and atmospheric tunes.

In a recent online discussion about „the art of the mix“, Doc Scott agreed with my philosophy, that it is all about the effort you put into the selection, which two tracks you combine into a third and how you arrange the whole set. So with 40 tracks in 90 minutes, you can expect my typical long doubles, crazy switches and a little wizardry 😉 Recorded live with Serato Scratch vinyl and the trustworthy Ecler 320.

Myom – Rhythm & Sound & Drum & Bass (Boom Tschak #19)

The mix at Soundcloud

The mix at Mixcloud

The MP3 Download

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!

01 Nether – Sunset Dub [Cylon]
02 Felix K – Flowers of Destruction #4 [Hidden Hawaii]

Myom – Dub Foundation (Boom Tschak-Podcast #03)

Dubbige Deepness mit tonnenschweren Breaks, lässigen Percussions und Soundscapes, die unendliche Räume Ăśffnen: Myoms „Dub Foundation“-Mix zeigt, wie Dub & Reggae auch nach 20 Jahren immer wieder kreative GrenzĂźberschreitungen im Drum´n´Bass inspirieren.

Neue und etablierte Producer rund um den Globus entfernen sich ßber dem Bassfundament vom typischen Rhythmusschema des Drum´n´Bass und experimentieren jenseits des etablierten Dancefloor-Funktionalismus. Alle Tracks spielen im Drum´n´Bass-Tempo von 172 BPM, typische Elemente der Genreästhetik werden auch ßbernommen, es dominieren jedoch entspannte Halfstep-Beats zum Kopfnicken, die zeitweilig an instrumentalen Breakbeat/TripHop/Downbeat aus den Mittneunzigern erinnern oder wie ein Hybrid aus Dubstep und Drum´n´Bass funktionieren.

Mit seinen Mixes erforscht Myom kontinuierlich den Einfluss von Dub und Reggae in zeitgenĂśssischer Bassmusik – explizit seit seiner „Jah Session“ (2004) oder Ăźber seine „Original Dubbah“-Mixserie (seit 2007 Teil 1,2 und 3), die Dubwise-Drum´n´Bass und Raggajungle präsentiert. Mit „Drumstep“ (2008) stellte er frĂźh eine erste Sammlung von Halfstep-Tracks zusammen, die den Einfluss von Dubstep auf Drum´n´Bass dokumentiert. Den jamaikanischen Wurzeln spĂźrte er aber auch in anderen Genres wie Dubstep (Dubbahs´s Delight 2010) oder Nu Skool-Breakz nach (mit dem Ragga-Breakz-Set „Irie Vibes„, 2007).
