June was a BIG month. Jumping, joyful, juggernautical - if you wanna get all alliterative on it. Though upon thinking it through, you probably didn't. Goldie outed Banksy (allegedly) and released his first album since 1998. New albums from Camo & Krooked and Hybrid Minds hit the shelf. S.P.Y pulled back the curtains and threw some sweet tunes back into the fray. Teddy Killerz aimed a spot of shade at jump up artists and people grabbed their pitchforks in response.
Errrr, Glasto happened.
Yes, I'm a veritable fount of current events, and here is some music!
"Witchmaker" - Killbox [RAM Records]
Intimidating by name, composition and nature - Ed Rush and Audio are double threat, Killbox.
"Heat Of The Moment" - Camo & Krooked [Liberator Music]
The audio equivalent of a pash and dash - Camo & Krooked , the big teases, have released snippet versions of every 'Mosaik' track via SoundCloud.
"Pull The Trigger (Black Sun Empire Remix)" - Flux Pavilion [Circus Records]
Nothing brings me more joy (that may be an over-exaggeration but bear with) than being able to feature Flux on the drum and bass chart - thanks to BSE for being an enabler. This is bad ass.
"Dark Matter" - L-Side [V Recordings]
Would highly recommend any of the tunes off Brazilian L-Sides 'Love Vibration' EP.
"Black Fog" - Dub Elements [Viper Recordings]
Everything you could want and expect from a track titled 'Black Fog' - the slow looming unfolds into darkness and debauchery.
"Guess What" - Joe Ford [Shogun Audio]
Guess what? He's back - that's what. Oh hey there Joe. Quite the entrance!
"Losin' Sleep" - S.P.Y [Hospital Records]
Mass excitement from the inner D&B community surrounding the launch of S.P.Y's new tunes - he's at Fabric tonight to ring 'em in. If you're around, go for a squiz.
"Fade Into The Night" - Cyantific 3000 [Viper Recordings]
Viper's 'Summer Slammers 2017' compilation album is a force to be reckoned with and if you need proof, I suggest you head along to Work Bar, London on the 5th of July where Cyantific will showcase the goods alongside the likes of Brookes Brothers, Koven, Insomniax, Ekko & Sidetrack, and Tantrum Desire.
"Empath" - Keeno [Hospital Records]
The Hospital Returns to Let It Roll EP is home to four grand tracks - one of which is Keeno's below - marking the addition of a Let It Roll addition to Hospitality In The Park tentscape.
"Puff N Stuff" - Need For Mirrors [Full Cycle]
Soul In Motion resident DJ and Kiwi boy, "Need For Mirrors," has a new EP out called 'Mutiny' which is full of interesting tracks. 'Puff N Stuff' is one such unique example.
