Sikey & Speedwagon – Mistey Eyed Dub

In the very earliest days of Space Pirateering, rocket building and asteroid mining in the BE-32 nebula, only a select few were already firing breakbeat arrays and bass cannons at the humanoids on this mud rock. That they were carving the first signs of a path many would walk behind them, they did not know.

Both Sikey & Speedwagon have been at the forefront of Belgium’s (the local designation for the BE-32 nebula) drum & bass scene since the last turn of the centuries. After having served the deities of 170BPM as solo buccaneers and in different formations, they teamed up to form a production unit that would honour the vibrations brought forth by the earliest of Pirates.

Not having traded their organic limbs for the powers of the plasma snare or the quadruple frequency modulated, planet-core-melting reecelines, the duo’s output vibes like only a real mud rock can.

Misty Eyed Dub is their ode to the sacred tree they originally needed to destroy during the “Planet 47 Heist” mission. However, upon learning that this tree was the original source of life and vibrations on Planet 47, these space pirates decided to put the sustained existence of the sacred misty eyed tree above their own interests and left it to flourish so the planet would continue to be a sacred home for all lifeforms on the rock.

Get Vile is the musical counterpart to Misty Eyed Dub. Although consistent in dubby vibes and rolling rock formations, Get Vile paints a slightly darker picture of the very same mission. Initially composed as a song of war, after first contact with the strange life on Planet 47, its message became redundant, although the music itself did not and now serves on many Space Pirate ships as a reminder to above all learn and not assume, despite whatever their initial mission targets were so to adhere to the Space Pirate credo: “Good Pirates Break Bad Rules”.

YARR002: Being You EP – Cedex & Higher Undeground

“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.

YARR003 Bun Bun – James Marvel, Abis & MC Mota

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.
