260 – Kove
Sussex based Producer/DJ Kove first started dabbling in music production in 2006 and by 2009 he’d moved to London to produce for a synth-pop band, things didn’t work out and he eventually left. However, whilst in London he discovered the world of Drum and Bass music. He hasn’t looked back since.
This year saw two of his tracks being picked up by Futurebound of Viper Recordings, with one of the tracks, ‘Breach’ receiving a play on BBC’s 1 Xtra. His next single, ‘Iodine’ was picked up by Andy C of Program/Ram records and is due on October 8th. Expect big things from this guy. Sum up this podcast in 10 words… Plenty of good dnb ,dancefloor action with melodic sensibility. What’s your personal favourite track on it?Pure Gold, Calyx and TeeBee’s new single. can’t get enough of it. What’s the special ingredient in this mix?I’m going to say plenty of bass, no messing around. What’s the best gig you’ve played recently?As a DJ I’ve only played 4 so they’ve all been great. Being booked to play in Germany last week was a great experience and gave me a taste of what it’s like to be on the road, (big up to Dave and the guys at MEA) and for that reason holds a special place. My first DJ gig was Ram at Fabric so again that will always be fondly remembered, certainly a baptism of fire! What have you got coming up?2 new remixes that are waiting to be released. The 1st is for an LA based musician called Big Black Delta that I finished in July thats sounding big. Heard it played out for the first time by Matrix & Futurebound who finished their set with it at Cable so its great to get that seal of approval, its due for release in November. His last single was remixed by the likes of Jimmy Edgar and Throwing Snow so it’s nice to be in the mix of credible artists like that. The other was commissioned by a major record label 2 weeks ago which I only submitted a day before this mix, other than that plough on with getting my next single finished and out. And finally, do you have a special message for our readers?Be sure to check on my new single Iodine/Open Ground (released on oct. 8th on progRAM) and I hope you enjoy the mix and to keep updated all things Kove via www.facebook.com/koveofficialwww.twitter.com/koveofficial TracklistingDimension ft Cyantific – Detriot Tantrum desire – get with it Ed rush & Optical – Chubrub Wickaman, Hoodlum & Mavrik – One scratch Kove – Sleep it off Delta Heavy – Minus Calyx & TeeBee – Pure Gold Decimal bass – Jupiter Break – Framework Kove – See You Wilkinson – Automatic Metrik – Drift S.P.Y & Fasra – Surface Enei – Stonehead Kove –Open Ground Cyantific – Mirador Commix – Be True Kove – Gumbo Rene LaVice – Headlock VIP Aphrodite – Bad Ass Culture Shock – Troglodyte Kove – Iodine Hamilton – Deep In My Heart Wilkinson – Tonight Calyx & TeeTee – Perspectives Wickaman & RV – Sound Clash Frankee – Pandorum Kove – Breach DC Breaks – Move Closer Netsky – Come Alive (Culture Shock Remix) Noisia & Phace – Program S.P.Y – Love & Hate Kove – Horizon
