This month we start with a rather minimal yet paradoxically large ‘Zone’ by Elgato, raising the bpm from 120 to 150, and finishing off again with a masterful Lone track from his album Galaxy Garden, featuring Machinedrum on the vocals. We also have features from 3 other outstanding albums, including Actress’ R.I.P, Distal’s Civilization, and Lazer Sword’s Memory, all highly recommended. Stand out tunes from the mix have to be Logos’ rude laser anthem ‘Kowloon’ and Baauer’s supercrunk remix of Krueger. Enjoy.

AAAHHHH!! Love this guy. Not only do we have some lovely new remixes from him, we’ve also got a delicious VIP mix of his absolute classic/liked by everyone/awesomely super track ‘King Of Africa‘!!! Enjoyjoyjoyjoyjoy
‘fantastic mr. fox‘, from UNTOLD’s HEMLOCK label, is one of the fastest rising stars in this post-garage, left-field, future sound. a manchester local, he has enthralled many of us with his work with other manc local RICH REASON on such releases as plim-soul and has recently impressed with his own ‘sketches ep’. his latest mix for hypnotik, in preparation for hyp! hyp! hyp! at fabric on the 12th (TICKETS), is absolutely sublime. a secret tracklisting due to EXTREME exclusives but to give you an idea he’s got new new JAMES BLAKE on there, the XX being dropped into NEWHAM GENERALS, his own incredible remix of ZED BIAS, tracks from the likes of SULLY and some very cheeky bassline. my favorite mix of the year so far.<>

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.
