It's been a sad old month for drum and bass fans with the closing of Fabric - actually, not sure sad is the word - disappointed, outraged and frustrated are perhaps more appropriate. Glass half full though: Some dude is planning to dance outside for 24 hours (ledge) and there is a protest on the 8th of October for those of you who fancy donning your disruption boots.
Also, Hospitality In The Park is finally here! THIS Saturday. High Contrast, Calyx & TeeBee, Friction, Spectra, them lads that did "Buffalo"... To say that I am gushing just isn't a graphic enough description. If you're out enjoying London's last and best festival as well, then I wish you a massive and disgracefully sweaty time!
The word last time...
"Active - Karma vs Friction [Shogun Audio]
Quality kicker offer-er! This track is pulling up on Karma's upcoming Augmented EP at the end of September.
"Only U (Real Quick)" - Ownglow [Hospital Records]
The lad, Ownglowwwww - too many fresh new tunes to count! This one's a particular goer though.
"Antimachine" - Misanthrop [Neosignal]
Misanthrop's self-titled debut solo LP is a real mixed bag of delights. This one is less of a delight and more of a heart attack in waiting, but that's why we love it.
"Sweet Lies"- Wilkinson ft. Karen Harding [RAM Records]
Wilky-woo with his particular brand of drum and bass for the masses!
"Fatso" - Metrik [Hospital Records]
Top of the Beatport chart this week - let's show some Fatso love!!
"Red Mist" - Original Sin [Viper Recordings]
Self-control is for the boring - let Original Sin help you in allowing the red mist to descend!
"Low Frequency" - Culture Shock [RAM Records]
Free download anyone? You know you want to! Get at it through the link below.
"Tribes" - Chase & Status [MTA Records]
Bring on album four. Channeling proper Chase & Status OG vibes.
"Microwave Radiation" - Rido [Blackout Music NL]
If you had no qualms about standing with your crotch too close to the microwave before, we trust you do now! Radiation warning issued in the best way possible, safety first Rido. Proper pelter this one!
"Bring Me Life" - Kove ft. Johnny Fears [KVRT Records]
Love us a bit of Kove! The new album dropped a few days back on his personal label so do not wait to rub your ears all over that!
