GREAT week for drum and bass. Actually, great is too paltry a word - we're talking stratospheric levels of extra-amazing events all occuring simultaneously in a state of ecstasy!!! Or somethin'. Enthusiasm overload, I'm very sorry. But not as sorry as the Islington City Council who have swallowed a large dose of humble pie and gone back on their decision to close Fabric. Let me re-frame that in a less complicated context - FABRIC IS RE-OPENING! Oh yeah. Then, the bad man Andy C announced a short residency at XOYO. His first in quite some time - hope you London kids are ready to go on a journey, those sets will be immense. To smack a cherry on the top of this glistening dollop of cream filled VICTORY - we have freshly dropped tunes from the likes of Friction, Sub Focus and State of Mind.
Life is good.
"Caterpillar" - Black Sun Empire & State of Mind ft. Virus Syndicate [Blackout NL]
Huge! Holy shit - hang on to your love handles, you're going for a ride!! Yes NZ, get at it. You make me so proud. Keep an eye out for an interview with the State of Mind boys too.
“All Nite” - Friction [Elevate Audio]
Don't tempt me Fricko, don't tempt me...
"Love Divine" - Sub Focus [RAM Records]
Well this is exciting isn't it!! Crept up on me completely unawares!
"Blazer" - Shapeshifter NZ (feat. Anika Moa)
The boys (and the chick!) - another new one off "Stars".... check out our interview with the guys here.
"Stranger Tides" -Whiney [Med School]
New EP out from Whiney early December!
“Have It All” - Culture Shock ft. Raphaella [RAM Records]
You know the shockmeister general. More glorious output from him here!
“Ready To Go” - ARUNA & Rameses B ft.KingdØms [Monstercat]
King of chill Rameses B linking up with seriously strong vocalist Aruna here. Relax yo'self!
"Haunted House" - Zombie Cats & L 33 (Eatbrain)
Always wicked to discover someone new. The offerings exploding from the Zombie Cats camp are batshit crazy and have been coaxed into one blistering new EP - "Alive". Check it out, seriously strong.
"Foley Funk" - Urbandawn [Hospital Records]
Also really digging Urbandawn's material off the new album, "'Gothenburg Cluster" - got serious chops!
"Wake Up" - Neve [The Dreamers]
Another tune from Neve, who is starting to get himself a little bit popular in the old scene. This was featured on some random podcast... Noisia or someone? Yeah them.
Everything in one place - in your face!
