August Bubblin : DISTAL

For the Fifth Edition of Bubblin we are proud to present Dirty South Bass Boss

Distal (Atlanta – Embassy/Tube10/Grizzly)

Atlanta based producer, and part-owner of EMBASSY RECORDINGS Distal has found himself rapidly building an internationally familiar brand in 2010.

Combining time travel with dance music Distal breaks down the more ambiguous sounds from the past and fuses them with thoughts and equations of the future. Because of this non-traditional approach to Dubstep, Funky and Techno, Distal has been forced to take a few risks, but along the way has created a very specific and friendly sound for himself.

Bridging the gap between techno, breakbeat hardcore, house, juke, funk, gangster rap, and even pop culture is a tricky formula to entertain. This enthusiasm has already gained the attention of many well-respected shamans and pioneers working in Dubstep and Techno today. His first two releases under Embassy graced the track listings of Joy Orbison, Appleblim, 2562, Joe Nice, Moldy, Ramadanman, BenUFO, Julio Bashmore, Breakage, and many other luminaries. The list of recognition is growing in 2010 with three stellar releases out on Rogue Dubs, Car Crash Set, and Embassy and forthcoming releases issuing on Soul Jazz Records, Grizzly, Tube10 Recordings, and Aaahh! Real Monsters.

Plus Special Guest Obe (PDX – A.E.P.)

When he was a young boy, Obe was fascinated with deep, reverberating sounds. He was often found in desolate shipping yards with his head pressed against a train car, large metal pole, warehouse siding, or shipping container, turning the vibration of industry into the sounds of his dreams.
Obe has since replaced the cold steel that echoed massive resonances into his head with the nice and warm lining of deejay headphones, while still listening to similar sounds.
In the meantime he studied theoretical, cultural, technical, and political aspects of music for years and then set about traveling the world to build on this foundation of knowledge. Now Obe channels this intention and discipline into heart-felt, crowd pleasing dj sets in which he weaves uk funky, tropical house, cumbia, ghettotech, electro, baile funk, and uk garage into a compelling collage of dancefloor depth charges.
