Sleek - Summer 2010 Mix

This summer has seen dubstep spread like poison ivy throughout the state. Central Arkansas has had a strong scene for some time now, but Fayetteville and NWA are beginning to creep into the picture in a big way. From the bass-heavy tents at festivals like Wakarusa, Soulstice, and this weekend's Pronoia to the launch of KXUA's weekly dubstep show, Midrange Optional, to huge nights at Fix with 12th Planet and local Aerosault DJ Domewrekka to countless emerging regional DJs and parties, it's actually getting tough to keep track of it all. (Keep an eye on the NWA Dubstep Facebook page to keep your finger on the pulse.)

Beyond that, West Memphis also has a blossoming scene (and I'll go ahead and assume that Tulsa and Southern Missouri do too, although my connects aren't very deep out there). So all in all, dubstep has become a huge force in the state and in the region at large. I'll be spotlighting some local stuff very soon, but until then, let's shift our focus back to the OGs down in Central Arkansas.

Little Rock-based Cool Shoes homie DJ Shawn Lee has been busy gigging and honing his production skills lately, but he made some time to lay down this solid summer mix showcasing the jarring, aggressive dubstep for which he's known. He even threw a couple of his original numbers into the pot. Catch Sleek alongside myself, Wolf-E-Wolf and Domewrekka on September 10 at Speakeasy. I'll be hitting you up with more info on that really soon.

Tracklist after the jump.

Sleek - Fall 2009 Dubstep Mix

Sleek - Fall 2009 Mix

Fellow A-Stater Shawn Lee from the Bass + Kicks camp is a man of many trades—blogger, DJ, graphic artist and promoter for the Cool Shoes monthly (just to name a few). Recently he's picked up yet another hat: dubstep production under the Sleek alias.

Here's his fall mix of rugged, aggressive dubstep, complete with metal breakdowns and industrial motifs. Check for a bonus Sleek remix after the jump. It's quite an impressive little choon, especially for someone who's just taken up production within the past few months.

Just a quick heads up for all my Central Arkansas heads. Cool Shoes is tonight at Downtown Music in Little Rock. If you live within 50 miles of this venue, it's worth the trip to make it to one of these parties.

Wolf-E-Wolf and Cool Shoes resident Shawn Lee will be manning the decks tonight. You can download summer mixes from both of them here.

Savoir Faire Promo Mix

It wasn't even two weeks ago that I posted a mix by Cool Shoes alum Shawn Lee, but he's already churned out yet another to help promote the Savoir Faire rooftop party happening this Friday in Little Rock. Unlike his dubstep-leaning summer mix, this one screams party. It's chock full of highly recognizable pleasers, and if it's any indicator of what things will sound like on Friday, it's going to be one hell of a party.

The Savoir Faire lineup will include all three resident Cool Shoes DJs (Shawn Lee, Deeter and Risky Biz), which is something we rarely get to see.
