The Return of FS

Within a few days of its release “Shake Dat Ass” by New York DJ / Producer FS made it to the top 5 Beatport Dubstep charts as of 03/01/2010.

This release marks the return of FS (of MING+FS). Partnering up with High Chai / Patriarch Recordings, FS delivers his signature style dance music smashed with dubstep providing the listener with an electro-glitch-ridden head banger – floor stomper of a track.

B.R.E.E.D on high chai recordings 26-Jul-10

Long before any DJ in India went international, Ritesh  D’souza aka B.R.E.E.D aka DJ Nasha decided to  pitch his tent with the leading underground dance  movements in the UK and the US.

Constantly introducing new sounds to  India, B.R.E.E.D has performed at internationally-  acclaimed music festivals like Burning Man in Nevada  and the Sunburn festival in Goa.

B.R.E.E.D’s remix of Jalebee Cartel’s “Mirrors” (Nu asian soundZ, High Chai Recordings), raced to number 10 on Beatport’s Top 100 Dubstep charts in January 2010.

With sets that involve the use of different midi controllers, FX processors, samplers and the art of turntablism, setting B.R.E.E.D apart as a new, genre-defying producer and live frequency-tweaking DJ. A commitment to keeping it fresh at every gathering!

A new EP on High Chai Recordings will feature an original B.R.E.E.D burner “Sound Killer” and a remix of Juakali’s Come from Yard” (original version appearing on Kush Arora’s Dreadbass Chronicles – Kush Arora Productions).

So up for grabs is a FREE DOWNLOAD – a special Midtempo/Glitch mix promoting the new B.R.E.E.D single releasing exclusively on Beatport on July 26th, 2010 on High Chai Recordings.
