Quite a bassy Londoney affair last month for me, of course accompanied by a dash of European and American bass music from French Fries’ ballroom influenced ‘Yo Vogue’ to Helix’s Night Slugs white label 505 rave extravaganza ‘Drum Track’ (renamed ‘No Hook No BS’ as the vocalised version with MC Flirta D). Get all these tracks wherever you can. Peace.

Ages since a nice big juicy post. Above is a picture of one of the birds from Roska’s teaser video for ‘Squark’ which was released on his Rinse record recently, and a brilliant record it is. Accompanying ‘Squark’ is a bit of everything including garage, funky house, electro, heavy dubstep and even a bit of gypsy house! Nice.

Sorry for not doing a best of 2009 like we said we would everyone. I mean I did my half of the post, but SOMEONE didn’t and SOMEONE is a lazy bastard. But enough persecution, here are some really quite superb tracks to ease the pain and in some cases cause more.

this is by far one of the best mix albums i have heard in a long time. Scuba takes the helm in compiling and mixing an undulating journey of must have tracks, “the tracklisting boasts a heavy number of exclusives, including unreleased material from Joy Orbison, Sigha, George Fitzgerald, Instra:mental, Scuba and Mala, besides anthems like Surgeon’s ‘Klonk pt.4’, Shackleton’s ‘It’s Time For Love’ and Untold’s ‘No One Likes A Smart Arse’, with plenty more from Badawi, Joker, Mount Kimbie, and Pangaea among others.”, having already seen the man at work at the infamous sub:dub im happy but here’s a few little snips to get you excited!
This trully large update includes some tracks by artists repping the new dubstep style that boasts broken beats, purple sounds and simply more experimental behaviour. Artists like Joy Orbison, James Blake, Rustie, Sduk and Numan are just a few of this clever movement in electronic music. It is sweeping the scene, I mean how many blog top tracks of 2010 has Joy Orbison’s ‘Hyph Mngo’ in it, let alone at number one. This is the stuff we’ll be listening to or should be in 2010, the future of dubstep we hope.
This post is also bringing tracks by Bass Weazal alias Punk Rolla who are making some banging fresh techlectro house tunes. We also have tracks from classic techsters Riva Starr, Renaissance Man and new jacking tech-head Oliver $.
And finally some dirt bashers for all you decibel junkies from Kanji Kinetic, Figure and DZ.
16 BIT – CHAINSAW CALLIGRAPHY (KANJI KINETIC REMIX)
Big thanks to Kid City Blog from who we knicked a few tracks for this post.
And we DO have a best of 2009 coming soon, just you wait.
And terrific news, it seems as though all my blabbing on about Mightyfools has paid off, we have an exclusive interview with them which has been sent off and should be with you in a few days. Exciting! Enjoy the tunes! Peeeeeace

ok this has been a long absence from writing. laziness if you ask me. there’s lots of house about as a consequence, not such a bad thing but i’ve got here a tasty bag of goodies new and old. this one has been brewing for a while……
JOKER what a big name at the moment, i reckon he’s a very talented boy and i hope there’s big things waiting for him. these two slightly older tunes of his are classic examples of his liquid funk synths, pure purple as the man himself may say.
and if you’re a fan of joker’s sound TERROR DANJAH is your man. having just released a collection of his instrumentals, remixes and tracks on planet mu records called GREMLINZ, he’s just beginning to get the recognition he deserves. he is considered one of the finest grime producers ever if not the best by the grime cognoscenti, originally part of the nasty crew and then aftershock, terror has released countless 12″s and remixes as well as several mixtapes. if you want to hear a precursor to joker, and the new bristol producers, here it is.
untold and the whole hemlock label have been really amazing me with untold’s own, ‘gonna work out fine’ EP making for cracking listening. however, it is fantastic mr JAMES BLAKE’s remix of stop what you’re doing by untold which is the finest. one of the best tunes of the year in my opinion.
having recently visited the infamous SUBDUB in leeds for shackleton, distance, peverelist and scuba on saturday i’ve been listening to JOY ORBISON a lot, who seemed to be artist of choice for those boys in leeds. here’s hyph mngo as a taster but i emplore you to have a look around for some of his other releases, GOLD.
of course we do have some of conventional dubstep hiding around here. SKREAM is givng away one of his tracks, what did he say, to promote the WHY NOT? boxing day d&b and dubstep bonanza at the ministry of sound. it looks nuts if you ask me, i’ll still be at the leftovers on boxing day…..
belgium is a place for dubstep. that was something obvious at this year’s DOUR festival where some belgians nearly shit their pants over joker, n-type and especially rusko. wow what a festival. but the man in focus is GANJA WHITE NIGHT. he’s been cracking out tune after tune that really hit the spot. a man to follow, a man to trust. gayfish is pretty purple growler, watch out.
now here to finish off is the real mixed bucket. machester local MRK 1 puts a brilliant spin on a big norrisman tune, PRIMARY 1 put together an old but super-varied mixtape, interwoven with kubrick samples and, from the vault, the kings of funk BROTHERS JOHNSON deliver probably one of the finest songs ever. bye.
