It’s been a wild ride for TURRBOTAX residents Contakt and Mayster. While both producers have been part of running one of the most-lauded and eccentric monthly events in New York, they’ve also been hard at work making some serious bass-y business. Earlier in 2011, we were treated to Contakt’s debut release, Not Forgotten on the distinguished Local Action label. This time around on the all-encompassing Dutty Artz label, they bring us their newest output, Korak, which is a progressive stance on the sounds both Contakt and Mayster have been experiencing sonically on the floor as well as their own environments. Strong from start to finish, the EP is only a teaser of what’s to come from each producer. To celebrate its release –along with giving them an excuse to jam out some exclusive cuts– they’ve given URB a mix exclusive, thanks in big part to the lovely people at Dutty Artz. Peep the mix and tracklist down below.
The Mean Red-powered Club Infinity returns once again with a mighty guest DJ flying across the Atlantic to provide us with his signature tunes (and signature call-out within his tunes). UK Funky and broken-beat specialist Roska is providing well-deserved funky house vibes to New York City tomorrow. Along with residents Kingdom (Night Slugs/Fool’s Gold) and Dre Skull (Mixpak). Along with this crazy shindig happening tomorrow night in the East Village, Kingdom has been nice enough to highlight his remix for recent Dutty Artz signing Rita Indiana. Peep the flyer and link to the remix after the jump.
