DAD Mix 069: Calculon

Calculon‘s one of those guys who I’ve seen matriculate into an undetected beast. At a time when most heads where abandoning proper dnb for the more dancefloor-heavy sounds, Calculon was making sure that the vibrant, next-level styles were staying alive via the Rubik Records imprint. However, over the last few years I’ve seen him flowing into those juke circles, really applying the foundations of jungle music and bringing life to the juke sound from a pure junglist aspect. Alongside producers like Austin Speed, Calculon has truly showcased how vital that darkside jungle music can be these days, and through Shoot Recordings, Calculon is both bridging that gap and exploring it in exciting new ways.

The third Shoot release is going to be a beast; Pawn and Calculon linked up for the deadly “Larchmont,” and got Om Unit to rework it. This is said to be dropping sometime later this month (via digital download and limited-edition purple vinyl), and you can hear both sides of that release in Calculon’s official DAD mix, alongside material from Sam Binga, Nphonix, and Mark Pritchard, as well as that sinister Om Unit “Shadow Boxing” remix. You want to know where my head is? Close your eyes and wander off into this mix.
