Last night's dream about meeting Wilkinson ("I'm a huge fan of yours," he said!?) and InsideInfo ("call me Paul," he said) is a slight cause of concern for me. Starting to worry the obsession with the music is nudging me over the cliff into fangirl territory...which, if I'm honest, is probably already a ravine I'm swimming in. At least you know I'm committed to the art! And ahhh, Mark, if you're reading this - the feeling's mutual sir!
Birdy - 'Wild Horses (Matrix & Futurebound Remix)'
Birdy lends her chops to the dnb scene again after the last beauty - she's in trustworthy hands with these two.
The Upbeats & Ivy Lab - 'Pharaoh' [Vision Recordings]
The Upbeats have been confirmed for Hospitality in the Park later in the year...yusssss! You can ready more about that here.
Rameses B - 'Neon Rainbow (feat. Anna Yvette)' [Monstercat]
You can always count on Leeds boy Rameses B to bring the melodics... Also, can I just say, independent Canadian-based EDM and dubstep label, Monstercat on the strong releases at the moment!
Dabs & Nymfo - 'Enchanter' [Horizons Music]
Tech tech tech tech! Loving it. Dabs & Nymfo are a fuse of Italy and the Netherlands coming together in one potent dark combo.
Silent Witness - 'Hydraulic' [Triple Seed Recordings]
Dig an impactful SoundCloud commenter and I think StanPapi said it best when he jismed on his keyboard with the following statement: 'WHAT KIND OF SORCERY IS THIS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!'
My Nu Leng & Flava D - 'Soul Shake (1991 Remix)' [MTA Records]
Shaking up all the tings! Souls and Beatport chart included..1991 on the rise...
Muzzy ft. UK:ID - 'Play' [Monstercat]
I'd never heard of Muzzy... which isn't good enough really because he's been a nominee at several Drum & Bass Awards. Well Muz, I flipping well have now.
L-33 - 'Transmission Control' [Terminal]
In my experience, things that are free are not to be trusted. I have been proven wrong by this track. Available for free download via Terminal who are bringing the 'heavy tech' on Soundcloud! Check out their YouTube channel for more of that - super sick.
Tantrum Desire ft Rhymestar - 'Anarchist' [Technique Recordings]
Rhymestar pulling the lyrics and the punches over the halftime intro before launching some neuro velocity straight into the batter!
Joe Ford - 'Let It Out' [Shogun Audio]
So far so good until 48 seconds in where I choke on my greek yoghurt - nice one Joe! That's the kind of business I'm talking about. Huge.
All of the riddims...
