dubspeeka is a man who likes his basslines as thick and raw as his kicks. The Bristol based DJ-producer, elusive as he may be, is no stranger to the wide world of dance music — he’s previously part of electronic music group Kosheen. You can go ahead and credit him with rocking your noughties rave nights.
Fast forward to 2016 and dubspeeka is back at work, delighting our bodies and souls with deep, moody techno like this brilliant remix of André Winter’s classic ‘Track 10:30’ on Oliver Huntemann’s Senso Sounds. Fittingly, ‘Track 10:30’ has long been lauded as a defining moment in European techno music history and celebrates 20 years since its original release in 1996… an era that birthed dubspeeka’s Kosheen alias, among countless other gems.
dubspeeka’s gritty, mechanistic rework of ‘Track 10:30’ balances the heavy industrial influence that’s earned him spots on labels like Drumcode, with a careful precision that articulates the melody of the original track. Forget our description, though. Just take a listen for yourself and enjoy the pumping groove.Keep your ears tuned to dubspeeka on Soundcloud, right here.
