Despite some strong artists and scenes all over the world, LA is still our favourite home for Electronic Bass artists approaching things from a Hip-hop mind set. One of the key players in our reasoning like this is Troublemaker, a man who surely knows where a computer's funk button sits.
We first came across him through his work with Tatelarock, and we've put up a few of his remixes over the past few months. However he's just uploaded a shed load of his killer remixes which gives a perfect chance to either remind you or introduce you to why we're feeling him so much. You can grab them all over at his MySpace page but here's a selection of our favourites.
This True Skool classic gets a phat and filthy redub which we have been rinsing hard in the clubs, even when it's not quite appropriate...
(YSI) Camp Lo - Luchini (Tatelarock & Troublemaker Remix)
This massive Brazillian tune gets even bigger with a trip to LA...
(YSI) Bonde Do Role - Gasolina (SK87 Remix Troublemaker Edit)
One of our favourite soul tracks of last year from one of the most under-rated live acts out there flips into a gnarly electro-rock skanker...
(YSI) Yes King - 40 Long Days (Troublemaker Remix)
The fellas enter close to the realms of Dubstep with this dirty Digi-Dub rub...
(YSI) Tatelarock & Troublemaker - The End Is Near
Here's a couple of his Mixtapes which give a good insight into what influences make their way into his remixes. If your DJ doesn't turn up to the party then whack these on and you'll be guaranteed a roof raiser.
