MANTIS

Changes are coming.

So It has been nearly a year since we have done anything Dubthugz related, so I think it is well about time to give you guys a well needed status update of what the hell is going on.

In that time we have decided to curtail and expand certain areas of our brand, we are expanding our site to include other sub domain sites falling under the Dubthugz banner. We already have a gaming site in our network so be sure to give it a look.

As for the radio, where do I start on that one. Because of the troubles with the American copyright board back in 2012, we had to stop expanding the radio because we cannot afford to get the proper licenses to play commercial music. That being said, we are very open for people to submit their music tracks in the understanding it is direct license and no money is involved with the station at all. If you wish to submit your music please get in touch and request our radio direct license agreement. Contact us here: info.dubthugz@gmail.com

For the record label side of things, we are still selling all our previous releases for the foreseeable future, anything new will be going straight onto our youtube channel which will be being revamped and overhauled pretty soon. There will be some special cases when an actual release in stores will be happening, so be on the lookout. We are going to be scaling back our store releases in favour of how music is now consumed on the internet in this day and age. We are thinking and seriously considering of changing into a forward thinking bass music promotion channel/network.

We also have a new live audio reactive 3d visuals project in the works, as soon as we get some decent footage of it being showcased out live at an event it will be posted up here first.

Expect more news and cool stuff to be posted up on our blog soon.
We love you guys, keep it real!

Producer spotlight: Shem

The first time I heard a track produced by Shem was “CripWalk” way back in 2010 (Look it up on YouTube), ever since then I have been a definite but silent fan (that is until now). Back then his productions were slick, bass heavy, full, crisp and sounded really awesome, fast forward to now and they are just getting better. Now his production styles, sound designs and tracks as a whole have just skyrocketed in value right past next level and straight into the future somewhere.

I was speaking to the Producer himself earlier on social media and he gave me a little bit of exclusive information he would like to drop:
“Soon I’ll present two dubplate neurofunk mixes, one for Neurofunk Society of Poland and another for Neurofunk Grid. I’m also Neurofunk Grid’s in-house mastering engineer and I also master a lot of tracks outside of that – Shem Mastering Services is my main thing, and recently I’ve been working for Bandish Projekt – nominated to MTV EMA’s for Best Indian Act. What I produce as Shem is just a tiny part of what I do. There’s also a synthwave side project (yet unnamed) that I’m launching this year.”

This guy continues to inspire and impress, I am well looking forward to even more excellent tracks produced by him soon. But right now you guys should check some Shem out.

Peace!
