The CONDUIT // 036 – Daega Sound System

// Daega Sound System //

Vancouver duo Daega Sound System caught our attention with an amazing remix of a release by TKR on Blipswitch Digital, hitting all the right buttons musically. At The CONDUIT we’re definitely champions of dubstep, but as in all genres, we’re only interested in tracks that manage to do something and much of the dubstep we are subjected to on a local level fails to even manage reaching the table for discussion it’s that bad. It was important for us and our listeners to champion the genre by bringing an act with some guts and talent and were excited when these guys readily accepted. Without further ado, we bring you Daega Sound System.  – Sean-Michael Yoder

// Bio //

Born to composer and choreographer parents, it’s not surprising to hear that brothers Ben and Josh learned to read music before words. Growing up surrounded by performances, rehearsals, festivals and symphonies it’s natural that they have continued the tradition. Years of experimenting with electronic composition and djing has brought about the formation of their production and performance project Daega Sound System. In addition to Daega Sound they also head up their own newly minted label Fathom Recordings. Producing all forms of electronic, bass and dance music they perform as a Live duo and also a DJ duo. In addition to digital releases on UK Garage and 2-Step legend Noodles (Groove Chronicles) label DPR, San Francisco’s bass-centric Blipswitch and Noah Pred’s techno/bass music label Thoughtless recordings they have 12″ releases on out their own Fathom Recordings and Texas based label Formant Recordings. 2011 will see releases on Mutek and Blipswitch in additon to an ep on Scottish label Echo Dub. Known for pushing the deeper end of the dancefloor, they are described as “heavy as hell and deep as the abyss”.

The CONDUIT // 019 – Sam Allman

// Sam Allman //

For the next installments of The CONDUIT, we head down the I-5 South, over the Grapevine into the Los Angeles Basin, a second home to me and still a spot for great music of all stripes.

Fwd.dj has to be the electronic music  publication I read the most, and not because it’s the most wide spanning in coverage, but because it speaks in a familiar voice. These guys are Californians, like me, seeing the world of techno through a keen West Coast eye. I met Sam Allman, the mag’s content editor, during the promotion of Jay Haze’s album and found him to be a sensible guy with a keen sense of how music and criticism work. Then I started listening to his mixes on Soundcloud and realized he also has a good ear for tracks and how to program them. It was only natural to approach him for a mix for The CONDUIT and now we proudly present it you.  – Sean-Michael Yoder
