Out of nowhere – we are now back with a monumental display of Austrian version business, releasing a total of six remixes, based on our debut release SUBA001. All the music was sourced locally for this release – in an effort to support and spotlight the scene’s most talented artists.

Established in late 2016, we’ve already received support by the likes of FatKidOnFireInfernal Sounds and Keep Deep as well as White Label MagazineSeekSickSound and more with our first vinyl by Gnischrew and an array of high-quality giveaways.

Catalogued as ‘SUBAD001’ – the compilation is a stellar display of cohesive material, presented in a stylistically unique amalgamation. Starting off with DMG’s spin on the original – the listener is thrown into a vortex of skillful bassline excursions and a sense of Grime-infused aggression. Following up on his soundsystem-oriented style of delivering weight, Raptix emerges with loose, even playful excellence through his creative take on ‘Transmission Failure’, basking in prodigious space.

DubApe, established Austrian Dubstep producer with releases on FKOF, Bacon Dubs & Mainframe Rec. under his belt – has delivered a gargantuan version, holding true to the original arrangement and showing off his clear proficiency in setting dancefloors on fire around the world. As the only ‘Fluid Foundation’ version – Dubnius’ remix sets a different tone – effortlessly flowing sub movement with a minimalistic, infectious groove. Complementing the otherwise more Dubstep-influenced release, core crew member Linguist’s remix batters the listener’s expectation with a no-holds-barred drum and bass interpretation, akin to the original old school soundscapes.

Concluding this diverse demonstration of Austrian bass music, the renowned studio mastermind behind Dubblestandart took the concept of remixing back to its roots – executing an immaculate live dub mix, aided by a full-size SSL console and his trusty analogue Space-Echo.

With support from the likes of FatKidOnFire, shuOldGoldARtroniksand Sepia among others – this assembly of vibes
is sure to cause a disruption in the scene. Making it known, there is indeed a vibrant and growing scene, transcending national borders, containing a subconscious message of love for bass and unity for all. Mastered by the impeccable Go East Studios.

Title: Wardance / Hypnosis

Artist: Linguist
Release-date: 30th of December 2016
Catalogue No: SUBAF003
Format: Free Digital (Bandcamp)
Mastering: Signalfire

  1. Wardance
  2. Hypnosis

To close off a fantastic label founding year, we’re giving away one more heavyweight. Presenting to you Linguist’s debut EP on Sub Audio Records, catalogued as SUBAF003.

The release is a stellar display of two sides of the same coin, that are his unique musical abilities – heavily influenced by the sounds of his motherland, UK. After his self-released debut album ‘Shapeshifter’ Linguist continues his musical saga at Sub Audio, embracing Austria’s rising imprint.

‘Wardance’ starts off with a haunting soundscape garnering the listener’s attention, swiftly preparing for lift-off. It then proceeds to aggressively asserting its dominance on the dancefloor – pushing all the right buttons to get the crowd moving.

‘Hypnosis’ draws the listener in with a sophisticated rhythmic concoction drowning in meditative bass-weight, reminiscent of the early days of true-to-the-roots Dubstep, reminding us of why we learned to love this genre in the first place.

Title: Sanskrit / Murderation Dub

Artist: Raptix
Release-date: 7th of November 2016
Catalogue No: SUBAF002
Format: Free Digital (Bandcamp)
Mastering: Signalfire

  1. Sanskrit
  2. Murderation Dub

 

 


With the next installment of SUBAF – exclusive free downloads at Bandcamp – Sub Audio Records continues to fire up the local and international underground bass music landscape with two absolute heavyweights – produced by the newest crew member: Raptix.

A long-time and avid supporter of the scene in Austria, being one of the heads of SHENRON music. Also as a producer he has been stepping up his game immensely in the last year – with releases on his own brand, Dub:iouz and Version Collective under his belt.

The two-sided EP is modern system music in pure form. Sanskrit draws the listener’s attention with eerie flutes and other oriental instrumentation and then turns the dance on fire with a ridiculous groove and incredible weight. Murderation Dub in turn is heavily inspired by the soundscapes of roots culture dub and system music – filled with distorted tape echo trails, spring reverb clashes and dubby chords steadily vibing.

Press Release by Signalfire

Sub Audio Records from its capital city Vienna is floating upstream through the local surge of sound system culture in Austria. With the EDM hype in the country died down, head honcho Georg W. is ready to showcase the label’s first release on vinyl catalogued as ‘SUBA001’.

The 12-inch plate holds his set of vibrations under the Gnischrew moniker; a sound that translates to suggestive, psychedelic sounds lacquered with heavyweight, contemporary sonic adventures. Its strong roots in bass and sound system culture will expose the producer’s early contact with audiophile music, its Hi-Fi counterpart and analogous system sound.

Gnischrew describes his first twelve on the label as an experience consisting of atmospheric and enticing soundscapes, which are coupled with a heavy foundation. The sound is designed for the connoisseurs out there – and is presented to you as below-the-surface and progressive underground bass music.

The Austrian label owner drags listeners through a subterfuge of formless basslines and tricky reggae-esque riffs. ‘Transmission Failure’ grows into a two-faced dub plate full of sophisticated dub elements and a few twisted surprises. A huge sample library is used to add in the smallest audible details ranging from extraterrestrial samples, dodgy percussive hits to these crucial dub siren peaks. Gnischrew has geared up to bring forth a mental journey that seeks to surpass listeners’ expectations in dub.

A different voice and beat pattern tints the blessed B-side of ‘SUBA001’; an anthemic horn energises the release from the first drop onwards. Wisdom of Jah is spread across the hot ‘Fluid Foundation’ adventure, sharing both lyrical and subsonic wisdom in various layers of the jam. The brass instrument returns to add presence to the noisey bass weight raging through thick smoke. This calls for a ritual only Gnischrew knows how to perform, fusing darkness and dub without any repercussions.
