In this episode I feature brand new music from Homemade Weapons & Red Army, as well as Kenneth James Gibson.

In August of 2015 Homemade Weapons released the Clarion Call album, featuring 8 incredible tracks of Drum & Bass.  The title track from that release was featured in Episode 25 of the Mongoland Podcast, though the entire album was a worthy effort.  In February of this year this Seattle based producer released a 4 track EP which escaped my notice until now.  That oversight will be rectified shortly.  Meanwhile, on April 29 of this year, Homemade Weapons teamed up with Sacramento based producer, Red Army for the release of the Sleep Terror EP, another 4 track release.    Three of those four tracks are featured in the first set of this week’s episode.

ResidentAdvisor.net said of the Sleep Terror EP collaboration,

Where Homemade Weapons prefers his beats clean and contoured, Red Army likes to embellish them with big pools of reverb and dramatic chords. The result is drum & bass that feels perfectly sculpted and mysterious.They tease out exactly what can make drum & bass’s utilitarian repetition enticing instead of numbing, which is a good way to describe what Samurai Music does as a whole. Records like Sleep Terror likely won’t grab fans of Samurai’s more esoteric leanings, but it’s not meant for them—this is pure drum & bass of the highest order.

I originally did the voice-over live on the air for this one, and although I did record it, I thought I’d experiment with an episode entirely without voice-overs.  Let me know what you think!  Please leave a comment below.
