Mark Kloud – The Protector EP


Just wrapped up 4 new tunes that I’ve been working on over the past month or so. All 4 tracks are deep and dark dubstep. If any one is interested in wav’s or 320’s of the tracks just hit me up. Also the tracks are unsigned if any labels out there want to release them.

AND .. Hoping to get some good news from London based, Deep Dubstep label – Gamma Audio. They reached out to me showing interest in my “Daggers in the Heart” song and are considering it for release on an upcoming compilation.

Mark Kloud – Footwork / Jungle 1 & 2

I’ve gotten some really good feedback on my Footwork / Jungle remixes I’ve been putting together. It started about 7-8 months ago when I got turned on to the sound from Phillip D. Kick aka Om Unit. He released 3 volumes of Footwork / Jungle remixes of some classic Jungle tracks. I’ve been huge on Jungle since the mid – late 90’s and have been collecting it on vinyl since 98. So I’ve gone thru some of my favorite tunes in a hybrid jungle, footwork, drum and bass, juke style.

Mark Kloud – Footwork / Jungle 1

Mark Kloud – London’s Most Wanted (aka Ray Keith) – Girls Dem Want it (Footwork edit)
Mark Kloud – Secret Squirrel – Illegal business (Footwork edit)
Mark Kloud – Undercover Agent – Oh Gosh! (Footwork edit)
Mark Kloud – P-Funk Era (aka Pascal) – P-Funk Era (Footwork edit)

Mark Kloud – Footwork / Jungle 2

Mark Kloud – Doc Scott – Unofficial Ghost (Footwork edit)
Mark Kloud – Doc Scott – Far Away (Footwork edit)
Mark Kloud – Red Army – Lightning & Thunder (Footwork edit)
Mark Kloud – Danny Breaks – Step Off (Footwork edit) … download available here: http://soundcloud.com/markkloud/danny-breaks-step-off-mark

If you’re into this sound make sure to check out Machinedrum, .. also The Host (aka Boxcutter) and Kuedo have some similar 160 bpm sounds but more along the lines of Minimal Juke but have similar sounds and styles to the early Intelligent Drum and Bass days. Those guys all have releases on Planet Mu … actually you should be checking out every release that label puts out … QUALITY!

Another dude making the Footwork / Jungle sound is Bristol’s ActRaiser … I chatted with him recently and he’s been working hard putting together some studio mixes along with remixes of some Jungle rarities in the Footwork style.

ActRaiser – Lost in Jungle

Keep an out for my Doc Scott – Unofficial Ghost Footwork/ Jungle Remix in an upcoming mix of his. Don’t forget to listen to his Dubstep and Drum and Bass tracks … very talented producer!

Here’s the link to entry 3 on Creative Allies

And if you haven’t heard the new album, ‘Metals’ check it out … it’s great … sorta reminds me of Cat Power, even though i hate to compare one artist to another.
My Favorite song of the album is “Cicadas and Gulls” and of course i cant find a video of just the album version, only covers and live versions … but here’s a clip from soundcloud…

I dont normally listen to the music for which i’m doing a design for but i found myself listening to ‘Metals’ over and over while working on these three designs … so again check out this album … good stuff!!
