Weekly News

New Brick Bandits Material

New material from the Brick Bandits crew has emerged this week on the Mad Decent blog - comprised of some of the biggest names in bmore (DJ Lokey, Mike V, Rob Threezy, DJ Sega, DJ Tameil, DJ Tim Dolla),
their last EP was on Mad Decent and it was BIG. Number Advisory, Robot Club Rock and The Chase had to be the stand out tracks for me. The new material sounds just as big as the older stuff, some classic bmore action creating proper heat on the dancefloor.

DJ Lokey - Get With This (Get Busy) (Link hosted by MadDecent Blog)

Mindie 3rd Birthday this saturday at 93 Feet East - live performances from Pillars of the Community, Adagio, and Nova . DJ action from Rattus Rattus + Klose One (Urban Nerds), Me, Dead Boy and Ordio Kid. Entry is £7 and you can check out the event here.

9-11pm GMT.
Pipedown TV. Live and direct.

Once a month Sduk+cntrst are about to bring the Pipedown vibez, not just sonically, but visually too! Yes, you heard. Not only will you be able be able to hear but you will be able to see. This is 21st century radio. This is PipedownTV.

Expect an amalgamation of bass music oozed through the roughest of fruit blenders producing the most exotic concoction we like to call 'Technicolour-dayglo Melt with a topping of Gfunk sleeze.'

This week also saw the annual Radio 1 Big Weekender... The dance stage was as strong as ever, with Erol Alkan, 2 Many DJs, Pete Tong, Plump DJs and Annie Mac. Of those, I stayed up late enough to catch the Erol Alkan, Annie Mac and 2 Many DJs sets... The Erol Alkan set was absolutely amazing, best set I've heard from Erol in a while, and the Annie Mac was equally enjoyable - if a bit less subtle. Unfortunately the 2 Many DJs set was a tad formulaic, and was a bit too similar (read: identical) to the Creamfields 2008 set. We've got the Erol Alkan set for you below, make sure you check out the end: Blue Monday into Waters Of Nazareth alone is worth listening to.

This week I finished a new mix, for JAYOU - track is called Crack Hands, so I thought I'd post it up here and let you all get your hands on it. My mix channels a UK Funky vibe, with some mean subs and bass.

Next up we've got a mix that has been getting a lot of attention on some of my favourite blogs - Curb Crawlers & Lower End Spasm. I thought I would post it up as well, purely as it is well worth everyone's attention - the track-listing alone makes it one of the more exciting sets I've heard for a while, and the mixing is no different. Ben UFO, head of Hessle Audio, completed this mix for Fabric as a promo for Hessle's takeover of Room 3 @ Fabric on the 15th May. So if this pleases your ears then make sure you reach for the 15th, the lineup is BIIIG: Skream, Rusko, Patchwork Pirates and Jackmaster (Dress To Sweat) in Room 1, Fabio and other DNB big names in Room 2 and TRG, Ramadanman and Pangea join Ben in Room 3.
