Footsie - "DYGMB" Braindead Entertainment

footsie,dj tubby,newham generals,dontsleepnyc,grime,bassline


its no secret that DontSleep reps the Newham Generals crew... you don't have to go back too far to find a post about Footsie or D Double E... but there's one person that deserves some serious credit as well, and thats DJ Tubby... In addition to holding down a weekly radio show on Rinse FM, Tubby is also an invaluable part of the Newham Genz family, and the official DJ for the crew. I for one have been downloading sets from him for some time now... a lot of them still on heavy rotation... He's one of the first people I ever heard play Kromestar and Lost's "Tipsy"... a track I still love to this day...

but what some people may not know is, that both Footsie and Tubby are ill producers in their own right. in the early 2000's they formed Braindead Entertainment and proceeded to release nothing short of straight classics... with tracks like "Slush", "Tiger Style", " Its War" and "Morbid" on the label, you'd be hard pressed to find them on vinyl these days...

with that being said, I was hyped to read that Tubby and Footsie were planning a relaunch of the Braindead imprint... the first release being a killer Bassline vocal track by Footsie himself entitled, "DYGMB - Do You Get Me Boss", which features remixes by Skitz Beatz and DJ Tubby respectively... [still however tryn to find the producer of the Baseline version lol].... its an incredibly strong release...

its nice to have a label pushing these types of flavors... can't wait to see what's next... now.. if I could only get my hands on Footsie's - "Big Band" and a vinyl copy of "Tiger Style" and "It's War" I could sleep a little easier at night.... lol
