Gobs de BXL releasing 19th April on Space Pirate Recordings

The light is blinding as we gaze at the great sheets of ice before us. How can the infinite diminish? Yet it does, though we pretend otherwise, and we know why. We know that this is just the beginning.

Putting numbers on our enemies does not help us fight them. The immensity of our struggle crystallizes into something tangible. Of those who do not have their head in the sand, some believe despair to be the only appropriate response. Most have faith in humanity though. Our 4,000 years of history cannot possibly end like this? Our ingenuity has gotten us this far, and it will overcome this faceless foe as it has many before this one.

We push the boundaries of the feasible so that we may continue to live in comfort, but in vain. It turns out the past does not predict the future, and not everything can be solved with some spicy new technology. This isn’t Hollywood, the end comes slowly. We are confronted with our transience on this Earth as our heritage and institutions decay. The little ice that remains exists only to remind us of the hope we burnt away.

‘Gobs De BXL – 350 EP’ is a narrative work about climate change and energy awareness. Each track depicting some perspective from the artist on the current state of affairs. Instrumental pieces of daunting atmospheres, cheeky sound effects, crisp drumwork and progressive composition so to each tell a little story to the listener. A work to be consumed as a whole, to be listened to front to back. 

With this debut EP on Space Pirate Recordings, Gobs de BXL makes his first marks in the drum&bass scene as a solo artist. And some serious marks at that!

Aye Captain!

Not only will our Captain play together with the Ripple crew on the Let It Roll bus party this Saturday. Find more info in the related article.

He will be giving his best solo on the Portal stage at Let It Roll festival 2019 on Saturday starting at 03.30

Ripple – Crypto EP

Hailing from the Czech and Slovak clusters, PmdR and Spill -commonly known as ‘Ripple’- have appeared on the drum&bass landscape in 2018 AD. PmdR has a long standing history in both scenes as a promoter and DJ, while Spill has been steadily developing his production skills over the years.
By the end of 2017, they decided to get their heads together and combine their talents into a common musical moniker.
Their sound is a mixture of icingly clean drum kits and sublines with clear influences from the darker and more twisted sides of drum&bass.
Having appeared already on a powerhouse festival like Let It Roll and their first singles showing up on Skankandbass, the duo instantly proves their worth. The bar has been set.

With their Crypto EP on Space Pirate Recordings, the duo depicts a set of underground tales with a strong sense of mood, yet hitting deep and hard where they need to. Bearing the right combination of restraint and surgical precision, the Crypto EP raises the bar once again for this dynamic duo. Be it the digitized pattern frenzy in ‘Crypto’, the rhythmic funk in ‘Watch Out’, the minimal rolling approach in their collaboration with Furious Freaks titled ‘Space Moth’, or the twisted manipulation of vocal samples in the stomper ‘Quake’, Ripple’s ‘Crypto EP’ is clearly the start of something special.

New Space Pirate Recordings artists for 2019

Almost a year ago since they met in a studio for the first time, fresh production duo, PmdR & Spill, represent a connection between the Czech and Slovak drum & bass scene. As time went on, they decided to join forces to present their new project Ripple. New SPR crew members that give Space Pirate Recordings an internationial touch. Their “Crypto EP” is bound to set floors on fire in 2019!
Yarr mateys, welcome….

Dossa & Locuzzed already previewed a track from the upcoming release in their Friday Funk Show:

More news on the SPR website and socials… Stay tuned!

1 Year Space Pirate Recordings

It all began…

It all started a year ago in a small studio at our captains lair. James Marvel had been working on his own imprint paired with the visual universe he’d been implementing around his musical output. At the end of 2017, Space Pirate Recordings first saw the light of day. A logo was created by “El Moro” and “Dirk” was born
The SPR designer will provide the artwork for the releases on the label and content for the socials and website in his own style.

Space Pirate Trainer OST

The original soundtrack of the game Space Pirate Trainer became the first release on Space Pirate Recordings. Artists as Abis & Mc Mota, Cedex & Higher Underground shared their music through the newly started label. Beside the succes of the first release on the label, the VR game itself won some international game awards such as Best Sound Design, Best Independent Experience and Best Game. Space Pirate Trainer is available for PC and has recently been released for PSVR.

Rampage 2017

The label landed its Space Pirate vessel and portrayed their first full showcase at Rampage 2018, clearly marking the start of something and making a statement that drum&bass, after all these years, is still steadily on the rise. A few months of preparation went into the visual show the team brought at the Sportpaleis in Antwerp on one of the biggest Drum & Bass & Dubstep events in Europe starting with nothing more than a few sketches and some wild ideas. As well on stage as behind the scenes the Pirates brought a great show.

SPR @ Rampage 2018 Behind The Scenes


Space Pirate Recordings Official launch party 05.05.2018

To really present the label in real life, Space Pirate Recordings hosted a night in Ghent to transpose the “SPR experience” to the visitors. A cosy night filled with livestreams, VR gaming and international artists on the line up. The Space Pirate Recordings crew organised the whole event from A-Z. A lot of new experiences and learnings were added to the mission debrief.  Space Pirate Recordings is looking to organise more events around its label-being and music releases so stay posted for more event news!

Bun Bun

After the success of ‘Dominator’, James Marvel and MC Mota team up again with ABIS (ex-June Miller) to once more deliver a banger full of unexpected twists, with a lyric so infectious, crowds instantly start singing along. A powerful force indeed, this ready-for-summer, put-on-your-sunglasses bouncer called ‘Bun Bun’

But what in Earth’s name is a Bun Bun? Is it a drumsound? Is it a vibe? A calling?  A (self-fulfilling) prophecy? A double sandwich made from a rare specimen of mahi mahi maybe? Indeed it might be a Romanian greeting. Some say that to the Japanese, Bun Bun simply means ‘shake shake’. Others soothe themselves by just repeating the words like meaningless yet powerful mantra.

Perhaps it is after all ‘an original creation, a philosophy’, as the lyrics so profoundly state.

The first official Space Pirate Recordings music video is a fact. Bun Bun is being released  together with a lyrical video on the Space Pirate TV channel.

Being You

“A quiet night on Space Pirate Bay. The airlocks open and a thrilling yet soothing repetitive sound rings throughout the corridors of the station. A duo of purebred Space Pirates dock their vessel and bring forth the spoils of their latest quest.”

Their names; Cedex & Higher Underground. Both hailing from the Class-M rock BE32, better know by its inhabitants as Belgium. Both have a long standing history promoting fast breakbeat music in this outskirt of the Copernican System. The duo’s stepped up their game recently while their first productions have seen the light of day. Their collaboration with James Marvel titled ‘Red Alert’ appears on Space Pirate Recordings’ first album ‘Space Pirate Trainer OST’ and even more recently they showed a deeper and rolling side with their release of ‘The Alarm’ on Lifestyle Music’s Belgian Connection LP.

‘Being You’ is a deep roller drawing influence from many different sides of the drum&bass spectrum. Without adhering to any set standard, it takes the listener on a journey through melodic patterns, lush filtered chords, snappy and rolling percussion guided by a deep and catching bassline.  

Appearing as their first solo release on SPR, with ‘Being You’  they further confirm their entry into the scene as a production duo to be on the lookout for. 

Cedex & Higher Underground touched down at Tomorrowland to play a 1-hour set. The Space Pirate TV crew made a small recap of what was going on that day:


In the first year of the label, the official Space Pirate Recordings website popped up. Merchandise and spacecloth are available to the masses via the webshop! Shirts, caps, flags, but also tools to create your own tunes (Sound in Space Vol 001) are being sold via the SPR interwebz. Our SPR editors try to provide hot news straight to the public trough the website.

Beside the website, Space Pirate Recordings is active on multiple social media platforms. Even gamers can join the SPR community on Discord to go on virtual missions together.


Space Pirate Recordings @ Lokerse Feesten

The Lokerse Feesten is a well known festival in Belgium. One of the nights, Space Pirate Recordings was invited by Red Bull Elektropedia to host a night filled with musical Space Sauce. Headliner of the night was Modestep. These guys broke the house down together with the SPR crew! The hot summer wasn’t an issue for the ravers that made it an awesome night!
With some baggage in technicalities en creative workflows, a second  visual show was created by the SPR Team.

Patchy the parrot provides tools!

The intention of the label is to create a platform for artists, new and old, that’s what labels do right? 🙂
Not only a platform is provided, Space Pirate Recordings releases it’s first patch pack “Sound In Space” for music enthousiasts to create their own sound with already some space influences in their productions. More patch and sample packs will be released in the future.

What’s on the roster for the future?

There are new releases coming up at the end of 2018 and beginning of 2019. New artists will make their appearance to join the Space Pirate Crew. Sikey and Speedwagon will make their first musical appearance on the label with Misty Eyed Dub.


Further on, PmdR & Spill will add some international flair with a release planned for 2019.
