Bring Tha Rukkas......



Thats right,its been a long time comin but the selecta/producer named 'Scoundrel' has made the change too 'Rukkas' after finding out there was another Scoundrel in this world....and what a lovely guy/great DJ he is....
After trying many names,freaking out too a certain extent and badgering his soundboys for help he decided too ask his mum..... 'what?' he said too his mother, 'what would you have called me instead of my real name now?'
"well,Rukkas son,obviously' She replied...
And so he was born and heres his latest tune entitled 'Mincer'

 

To go with this new name,new style and new look Rukkas has been kind enough too spend a while in tha studio craftin a new mix for you too download for you Iplods....

 

Still stickin too his trademark dubstep style,yet adding in a bit more of a tropical flavour this 14 min minimix has got everything you need,unless your after meledoic-cross-harmonising-folkstep
Let him know what you think here

BoooOoOoOOOOOooOOoOOooooom ting!!!!!!

BRSS INNA AFRIKAH!

big tings we inna!

the pair known as THE ORIGINATORS, (mighty mighty J and General Law) are out reppin' in Tanzania with the white ribbon alliance for motherhood . He's been good enough to send us this update::::


".......Three hours to go till the Mighty J (he's from Glastonbury Festival dont ya know) steps up to reprezent in the heart of Tanzania. The soundsystem rocked up on the back of a pick up, and all the ornaments on the shelf were taken down. Precautios; maybe a tad.



Pressures on. Ok shout outs to the Bridgwater Reggae Sound System. Reppin, always reppin. Mighty J originating from the BRSS steppin up for his African debut. Check out there blog (http://thebrss.blogspot.com/2010/08/oh-ma-daya-its-magic.html) these boys mean business, and are going to be the forefront of the UK soundsystem culture in years to come. Guaranteed. Plus they have been working tightly with the WRA over the last few years. Contributing to WRA work in Orissa, India. Check the bottom of this page (http://www.whiteribbonalliance.org/members.cfm).
 
"Mighty J from the UK playing reggae and raggaton, make some noise.....". Massive. Had to do battle with DJ Terry for deck time, some things never change, but a great night in all. Warmed up with some "oldies" and "sweet reggae" then Terry launched into a cheesy dance set which included the Macarina and Here Come the Girls (real jamaican flava). At 1 am Terry was off, and the man from Glastonbury stepped up. Refix.






Some big tunes being played and some massive respect being shown. Huge night all round. Went on till 4am with the Mzungo and Swahili crowd still vibeing. The people from Dar can definitly party, so massive props all round. Might even do it again tonight?

Some of the pics from the 'End of Month Party'...

There you go fam - latest manouvres from AFRIKAHHHHH, BRSS reppin international - big love to the general...

And yeah, today is carnival - so, heres a favourite hot nu joint for your listening....



From man they call redlight... you dun know KARNIVAL!!!

One love, the BRSS fam x

MOOMBA-WA!


Big on the blogesphere at the moment is MOOMBAHTON. A genre spawned from Dave Nada we are lead to believe......what is it and how did it begin, well this is what the man himself had to say..........

My little cousin Jean-Pierre is a huge Nadastrom fan and he’s about to graduate from high school. Him and his boy Mike are notorious for throwing these wild skipping parties. For those that don’t know, “skipping parties” are when you throw a house party mid school day and you tell all your friends that morning, and everyone who knows about the party skips school to go wild out. Word of mouth only too, no internet/paper trail. Anyhow, around their homecoming last fall they asked if I could DJ one of their skipping parties, and I, being the supportive/bad seed cousin that I am, agreed. They had a beat up system, but like 329439 speakers all over Mike’s basement so it sounded huge. They told me it would last about an hour because cops usually bust it up. The house/neighborhood was right by the woods so it was convenient to bounce and hide if need be. Anyhow, so here we are at Mike’s empty house around 11:30AM and everything is set up. Kids start pouring in around noon and the music starts. Mike and JP are dropping bachata and moving into reggaeton. This shit was getting crazy. Twenty minutes in and the place is PACKED, all Latin kids and everyone is fuuuucked up. Haha! I was gettin mad nervous (oldest dude there) and JP was like, “Yo you gotta go on soon primo!” and I’m thinking, fuck I cant play house/techno shit, I’ll get jumped. So I had the idea of slowing down some of the tropical/Dutch house stuff I had on CDs. Afrojack’s “Moombah Remix” being the biggest tune, I said fuck it and turned that shit down to 108 bpm. JP told all his people about me so bamas started cheering when I went on. And that’s when shit popped the fuck off. The minute that T-t-t-t-turn up the bass! part came in and dropped the place went insane! I played it all the way til the end and then did the same to Sidney Samson’s “Riverside” and EVERYONE is yelling the “Riverside motherfucker!” part and shit was just too much. I was losin’ it and told myself, I need to make some edits of this shit! And thus, Moombahton was born

New circus records about too drop.....!





Yes yes BRSS followers!!! 


After checkin the emails this afternoon i was nothing but delighted too see a message from circus records in me box with an exclusive promo of their new digital release,set too hit online shops on Monday 23rd......


Of course,
A track like sweet shop needs no introduction,but what could be better than a remix of it  from Flux Pavilion and a vocal take on it from one of dubsteps fast rising stars P Money..


  Doctor P feat P Money - Sweet Shop Vocal Mix clip by BRSS Blogspot


  Doctor P - Sweet Shop Flux Pavilion Remix clip by BRSS Blogspot


I personally aint too keen on the vocal remix,just sounds a bit forced and like Pikeys says,most tunes deserve a vocal,but that one definitely does not....
Either way guys,keep your eyes out and wallets open for this one guys,gunna be bbbiiigggg!!!

This Week;

1/ BRSS' Essentials Fa A Road Trip

Most weeks,tha BRSS are pon tha road,on yet another adventure.... The saturday just gone being tha longest yet, 7 hour drive too tha lake district followed by 9 hours straight DJing then followed by a 7 hour drive straight back home.....!

Proving too be tha most strain on us as soundboys,we feared other crews maybe enduring tha same kind of journies as us without tha same knowledge we now posses,so we decided in our relentless fuelled-body-jibbing-trash-talking sessions that we would write tha ultimate guide too what ANY soundboy should have on tha road,see tha list....



The only thing we feel (in hindsight) looking back that we may have missed is;
* If you can,get a driver
* If not, have a 'drivers hand' (Someone too roll fags,open drinks etc)
* Someone too keep an eye out for tha feds


2/MOLESKIN Studio lockdown....

After nuff hype bout the southwests hottest nu talent - tha BRSS hooded n bundled tha MOLESKIN inna tha reggae bus n got him locked Down in tha BRSS studio at tha st. annes yard to record his latest and greatest (manna got electric shock from pickin these tunes - so fresh he's fisted many stars harddrives to retrive 'em)


Some call him cat stevens, some call him yusef islam, others call him tha moleskin.....  keep locked on tha BRSS soundcloud for that mix - comin atcha free soon as he's wrapped.





3/SHOW UPDATES
