Action Jackson just released his mix for Indy Mojo’s new online radio station Mojo Radio!
Dave Owen and the Rad Summer family are back at it again for the prodigious producer’s new release Nothin But Love!
Dave Owen’s new release pairs the funky “Nothin But Love” with b-side “A Li’l O’ This” for an exceptional 2 track release. Both choonz feature Dave’s signature swag of blending classic soul samples with booming kicks and nicely chopped snares. With the stripped down sounds of dnb experiencing a current revival, “Nothin But Love” and “A Li’l O’ This” are destined to end up in your life this summer.
With more support and upcoming co-laborations than can be mentioned, Dave Owen is quickly becoming one of the brightest stars in drum-n-bass; just go ask LTJ Bukem, Grooverider, Fabio or Bailey, whom all drop Dave’s tunes on the regular. The young producer’s style blends hip-hop and old soul samples w/ crisp drums to create a sound that is truly unique. Between a number of smaller releases, his 12″ on Influence and massive ‘Yo Girl’ forthcoming on Creative Source Dave has had a great response in the DnB charts and top 10s for the past few months. Watch for much more to come from this musical savant.

Rad Summer rounds out the label’s first 25 records with a new 2 track release by Lemi Vice and Action Jackson!
Lemi Vice and Action Jackson join forces to inform the world of their love of Red Lobster with their new Iodine EP. RS025 features the titular upfront trap banger “Iodine” along with the more subdued anthem “Chemistry”. Both tracks combine the signature swag of Rad Summer founder Action Jackson with the bass wizardry of Lemi Vice. For fans of 808-driven genre, Iodine is a crucial release. Make sure you catch Lemi and Action on the road for their So Many Shrimp Tour!
Over the past decade, Lemi Vice has established himself as respected musician throughout the Midwest. Never one to settle into a single style of music, Lemi instead chooses to draw from his experiences of “long nights in dark clubs, and the science fiction movies” of his youth. This allows the young producer to transition between nearly every genre and progression in bass music. In the past 3 years that Lemi has been DJing publicly, he has performed alongside the likes of Figure, Zebo, Dethface, Flufftronix, Charlie Glitch, Maddjazz, and many others. For bass junkies around the world, Lemi is their new vice.
Indianapolis born and raised, Action Jackson has quickly established himself as one of the premier DJs in the Midwest, playing well over 200 shows in 2012. Specializing in genre bending mixes that span multiple styles of music, he is equally comfortable spinning hip-hop, house, dubstep, moombahton, indie rock, and everything in between. 2011 found Action linking with emcee Oreo Jones for their collaboration “Black Fabio”, a parody of the famous model from the 80′s. In short, there’s not a crowd or party that he can’t rock including large festivals such as Forecastle, Identity Festival, and The Indianapolis 500, the largest single day sporting event in the world.

Rad Summer’s Finland affiliate Somepoe linked up with another Finnish producer Macarone to create their 2 track single Cougars!
For RS024, the label was blessed with a new 2 track release from Finnish producers Somepoe and Macarone. “Cougars” is a straight forward trap monster complete with 808 snares and air horns. The b side “Watch Dat Thing!” is a chiller take on 808 bass music reminiscent of Somepoe’s Seven Dayz EP that came out on Rad Summer this past year. Cougars is a refreshing take on trapstyle EDM that displays a sense of creativity and style missing in much of the genre’s output.
Topi Paananen aka Somepoe has been active for sometime now in Finland’s bass music scene. Running the popular club night and radio show Fire In The City has provided the young producer/DJ with the perfect platform to present his unique ear for interesting samples, trap drums, and bass. Topi can often be found rocking crowds with some of the world’s finest dance musicians including Lil Silva, Mensah, L-Wiz, Tes La Rok, Desto, Dj Madd, Bert On Beats, Lady Chann, RSD, and Onra. Recently his track “Kicks and Snares” was featured on Luvstep 3 from Flufftronix, Dirty South Joe, and Cool Records.
