Bristol based DJ and producer DUBSPEEKA *Darren Beale* will be assaulting the decks at THE CLUB PAISLEY, with 3 hours of throbbing low end techno. An understandable amount of excitement has been generated around the show which will take-off on September 25th, using the 1st birthday of ‘Burn the Elastic’ as its launch pad. It is, in the immortal words of Rick James, “a celebration, bitches”.
To give you a brief overview of the career of Dubspeeka is no modest task. Before we mention his incredible recent releases on Drumcode, Darkroom Dubs, Truesoul, OFF Recordings and Senso sounds, his total career spans almost twenty years including fifteen years with breaks and trip-hop masterclass outfit ‘Kosheen’. He had already gained worldwide recognition as an artist and performer before launching his career under the DUBSPEEKA title, but enough about his past domination of international markets, let get back to the techno.
As new releases from Dubspeeka come out, more and more of the techno intelligence are taking note. His low end attack on your ear holes is striking a chord with the underground techno caliphate, as his music is suited to crafted sound systems that will guarantee sweet chest pains for the bold dancers who stray too close to the subs. He is a self-admitted geek for production and sound, and it is evident in his tracks. He has continually been featured in the top ten Beatport techno charts, and his driving baselines and infinity for the low end are, in my opinion, a large component of his success.
His own label *Skeleton Recordings* is no slouch either. It takes his spirit of proficient production and couples it with artists such as Glimpse, Pierre Deutschmann, Bohn, Desta Cullen, Valpy, Nikola Gala and Gabriela Penn to create a solid base for no doubt impressive future releases.
By his own omission “My sound as Dubspeeka is designed to be played loud in clubs”, and in possible comical undertones, “I think people like the low end”.
