Very happy to tell you that my latest release is out now on Dispatch Recordings!! Two very different moods, but both coming from a place of inspiration. Check the tunes on Soundcloud, and click the artwork to purchase from iTunes.
My first favourite of the year is simply outrageous. Metalheadz are bringing through the new breed of jungle talent, this release is a collaborative effort from Mako, DLR, Villem, and label manager Ant TC1. Both sides are cutting edge DnB of the highest quality. The drop on ‘A Certain Flavour’ is simply devastating and makes it my first tune of the week in 2014.
Mako, DLR, Villem – ‘A Certain Flavour’
I’ve cheated again this week. I’ve been sent a new EP from Dispatch Recordings, and I love it so much I played all 5 tunes on the radio. From smooth roll out, through stomping tech, to darkside jungle, this EP ticks all the boxes for me. A fantastic collection of tunes from FD.
FD – The Visits EP
This week featured an album that I will be playing for a long time to come: Blu Mar Ten ‘Famous Lost Words’…
Unable to choose one favourite, I’ve decided to make this my album of the week. It features many of BMT’s trademark smooth vocal rollers, but also packs a punch with some moody tech steppers, and of course some forward-thinking future beats. Strongly recommended, check out the LP.
Blu Mar Ten – Famous Lost Words
It’s been a long time coming, but Nightlife 6 has arrived. This time around Andy has decided one mix isn’t enough, and there are THREE DJ mixes, with a ridiculous amount of new tunes (100+??) showing the full spectrum of Drum + Bass. Of course, that means Ram Records have released a series of EP’s featuring some of this brand new exclusive music. There are some amazing tunes, but this one is just stupid! It does exactly what it says on the tin, and makes me bounce off the walls. Peak-time smasher!
Dose – Bounce Off
Transit 2 has arrived. Dispatch Recordings deliver their second compilation LP and have pooled the talents of some of the most exciting producers in the tech side of the scene. Longtime Dispatch soldiers are joined by fresh new talent for a journey through the dark side. The lead track sees Skeptical working his magic with vocals once again. The intro is sparse, creating the build up through subtle tension and the drop does not disappoint. In fact it disgusts!
Amoss ft MC Fokus – The Shapeshifter (Skeptical remix)
Cern’s Nostromo EP is a dark, menacing and moody homage to the Alien series. Formless builds up the tension before dropping into a swinging percussive groove with a carefully measured bassline growl. My favourite from a seriously strong EP.
This weeks sees the release of the long-awaited Jubei album on Metalheadz. And it doesn’t disappoint! The whole album is an expertly crafted collection of razor sharp future beats built on a foundation of classic junglist vibes. Picking a favourite tune proved almost impossible but this is one of many. Minimal eerie intro, haunting vocals for dBridge, and then the drop tears your head off – but with precision. An amazing track from a fantastic album. Check ‘To Have And Have Not’ in full.
Jubei ft dBridge – These Things
The intro is so pretty. Then the drop is so ugly!! Stealth has burst into the forefront of the techy side if the scene and I’m playing all of his recent releases. This one on Program is the perfect contrast of light and dark.
Stealth + Altair – Do Me Wrong
