“The Foundation, is just that. It’s me going back to my roots of dub, hip hop and acid. It’s my modern take of decades of music I grew up with infused with electronic music (elements).”
This EP is seven tracks of big, brutal, gangster ass reggae vibes. Melding dub, reggae, acid, trap, electro and everything in between; David Heartbreak stretches his musical roots with an incredibly diverse and engaging sonic pallet. Perfectly suited for OWSLA, who just keeps supplying us with the goodies this week.

Couldn’t be more pleased to be teaming up with Phonat today to bring you The Dirt #116. We’ve got 11 tracks selected by us for you spanning from some absolutely prime funky chops selected in true Phonat style, to the strangest subversions of trap and some sick black acid bootlegs from me. That, his thoughts on the tracks, and a handy little zip, coming at you!
After an amicable split in late 2012, Bot (ex Crookers) took to the studio to start a new chapter in his musical career; aiming his production sights at a new futuristic Techno sound. 11 brand new originals came of this self-inflicted studio lockdown, including a handful of new collaborations with Astronomar, TAI, David Heartbreak, and more. He’s put together a 24-minute teaser to give us all a taste of the new side of Bot, and it’s brilliant. Bot’s first release will be out this March on Mad Decent.
Instead of waiting in lines for hours and violently fighting over the newest gadgets, why not make some music instead? That’s exactly what David Heartbreak and Gabriel Wizard did in lieu of Black Friday, and I’ll be the first to say that I’m glad they did! Get the download of their collab below and “find love in the music.”
