Weekly News 20th May

Bit of a quiet week so far here at SB, but that's about to change - got an absolutely jam packed Weekly News for you, with new releases, new mixes, and upcoming events.

Toys R Us again this friday, at the massive Fridge in Brixton.  DJ action coming from me, Niyi (keep an eye out for his next single, Amelia, with remixes from me, Cobra Krames, Ben Mono and many others), Goldielocks (live), Unicorn Kid (live), My Panda Shall Fly, Dick Turpin, Nova and last but definitely not least... Bassline hero Dexplicit! This is possibly the most excited I've ever been about DJing alongside someone... And all of that for £7.50 advance or £10 on the door.  Check the facebook event here

Mad Decent Soundystem @ Bugged Out this Sunday at Union Car Park - ought to be an absolutely massive night, tickets are £17.50 in advance from ticketweb.I've already grabbed mine, so don't hang around!  DJ lineup is absolutely massive - Diplo, Skream, Fake Blood, Boy 8 Bit, Mumdance, Crookers, Riva Starr, Nic Sarno, Hannah Holland.  Check further down in this post for a bit more news on the Mad Decent front...

Last week was also absolutely huge in terms of events - we had Night Slugs with Terror Danjah, Egyptrixx and the residents on Thursday and FWD with Kode 9 all night long on Sunday.  Terror Danjah absolutely killed it with his exclusive Grime set, big up to anyone who reached for it! If not you can grab a tune below.

Although an exam on Monday prevented me from hitting FWD, I've heard amazing things about K9's set - and managed to find a half an hour recording that made me very jealous of anyone who made it.

High Horse at the new (and greatly improved) T-Bar was also a real hit on Friday night - the Blogger's Delight team (Skull Juice, Casper C)'s new night is getting off to a real start - guests include In Flagranti, a Turbo showcase with Noob & Matt Walsh.  High Horse is a weekly night, every Friday, at T Bar and I recommend you get down there - if not, then at least check out this mix they did for Fact Magazine:

Another reason I didn't make it down to FWD was that I was locked in to the Pipedown TV Launch, which was a massive success!  Connecting the dots between dubstep, grime, funky and everything else between, the mixing was class and despite the Pipedown crew's claims that the visuals looked crap, I was well impressed (although that may be more of a reflection on my knowledge of VJing/ all things visual than anything else.)  You can stream the audio and video from here, Iplayer style, or just download the audio below:

In the new releases field this week, got a couple of special things for you - a lot of you may have already copped the new Don Diablo feat Example single from Palms Out.  Although the mixes (A1 Bassline, Doorly and a few others) were definitely doing it for me, I finally got the promo today and realised that actually Palms Out hadn't posted the entire package and there were two treats in there - the Spor mix bringing some proper heavy DNB action as well as a mashup with Aerodynamic that absolutely KILLS it.  You'll find them both below, now I've just got to choose which one to play out this weekend.

Don Diablo feat Example - Hooligans (Spor Remix)

Another new release this week is the third installment of the Rebirth Essentials compilation series. Peak-time tunes, pure dancefloor tracks, and a different vibe too, more eclectic, atmpospheric, balearic and electronic.  Top choices are Sei A's mix of Telespazio, the Audiojack re-edit of Hugo's remix of "Pump It" by Robytek vs Shield Feat Foremost Poets (confusing I know).  It out to be ought by the end of May, but until then check it out on Beatport.

Bit of news from me this week - I've got down to the last stage of the Union DJ competition, which means I get a set at the next Union @ Fabric.  If my set is judged to be the best out of all the competitors that night then I go to Ibiza with the Union boys this summer as well as playing at every UK Union event!  I've also got cheap tickets for the event, on June 1st with Pendulum, Killa Kela and a suprise Special Guest, so hit me up for details.

The other bit of Mad Decent related news is biiiig - yesterday Diplo posted up my remix of College by Asher Roth on the MD blog, so big up the Mad Decent crew for posting it!  Head over and check out the post, or you can grab the tune below:

Last but not least, I finally jumped on the Twitter bandwagon, so make sure you head over to my twitter and get following!


  1. you are too nice kind sir.

  2. I try my best. I think the best moment for me was one of you lads shouting "Its a funky thing right now... its a PIPEDOWN thing right now"
