HUBIE SOUNDS on air this tuesday

27 September, 2010

Greetings peeps.

Brrr it’s a bit chilly innit. Never fear, for Hubie Sounds is back on air this Tuesday night and we’ll be doing our best to warm your cockles. This week we have an excellent guest mix from Big Square Records head honcho and all round diamond cross-dresser Big Nick D (or Nicola Double D to some of his closer friends). Long time Hubie Sounds fans may remember Nick’s previous guest mix from a year or so ago and it was a techy barnstormer of a mix. Well you can expect more of the same this time around – it certainly is a mix to get you up out of your seats and boogying around your bedroom.

We’ve also got the usual selection of banging beats and funky vibes in store, including new tunes by Krafty Kuts, NAPT, Herve, Pimpsoul and much more!

Make sure you tune in to Hubie Sounds this Tuesday, 28th September @ 9pm UK time – live and direct on NSB Radio!

Don’t forget to join us in the Chatroom!

HUBIE SOUNDS with special guests Curl And Dean

24 May, 2010

Hey everyone!

Hubie Sounds is back on the interweb airwaves this Tuesday. This time around, as well as the usual selection of hot new joints and stone cold classics, we’ve got an exclusive guest mix from essex-based breakbeateers Curl And Dean. Here’s all you need to know about the dynamic duo…

Curl & Dean grew up in different parts of Essex immersed in hip hop culture, spraying walls & spitting into mics in the long hot summers of their youth. It was after the dungaree & floppy hat raves of ’89 that Curl bought his first keyboard, soon adding a 707 & 950 sampler, he started to PA to the ‘hands in the air’ rave circuit.

Meanwhile, Deano Bobalino (Boba), with his love for hip hop beats, started to learn the art of DJing, getting his first pair of decks as an xmas present at the age of 15. It was not long before he started to DJ & MC on the local pirate radio stations before throwing himself into the ‘hardcore you know the score’ rave scene.

After several releases on his own progressive label, Curl was introduced to Boba, who at the time was a member of the breakbeat band Axcess, which lead to a remix courtesy of Axcess for his label ‘Free for a Girl’. However, it was during a summer break in Ibiza, that Curl, with his early house and progressive background was introduced by Boba to the sound of breaks. This introduction convinced them – whilst supping yet another cold San Miguel on their inflatable shark lilos – to blend their musical production styles, thus creating the Curl & Dean Sound.

Shortly thereafter, Big Square Records head-bearded-honcho (and one-time Hubie Sounds guest DJ) Big Nick D asked the lads to remix a Ben & Lex tune ‘Floorburn’, this was followed by a further release of their own ‘Kabul’ which featured an excellent Merka Remix on the flip. The original was also licensed on the V2 released compilation LP ‘Urban Deluxe’.

Their follow-up release was the rolling sounds of the ‘Snow Buddha’, also released on Big Square Records with remixes from Future Funk Squad & MI Loki. The success of the ‘Buddha was literally measured in inches, causing the snow to fall all over the U.K from release, this little beauty earned a number 1 spot in the DJ Download Beats & Breaks Chart, a DJ magazine recommendation & support from many, including Jay Cunning’s Kiss FM show.

The lads also had a tune, ‘Shining Path’, featured on the NSB Uncovered compilation, released towards the end of ’09 on Ape Records. As well as throwing their own parties around London town, Curl & Dean present their own radio show on IBreaks Radio. Their next release, ‘Bantha’ is out soon on Scarcity, with remixes from Beta, Run Riot, Mesmer, Deriwer & Ruido, the lads also have some remixes due for release soon on Scarcity and Yellow Finger.
