Weekly News

First up a bit of event news for those of you from/near to London. The Pull & Bear afterparty is tonight (Wednesday 16th) and is going to be an absolutely massive night - it's going down at the Bathhouse in Liverpool Street, and unbelievably it's free entry... Which considering the lineup is fairly hard to believe: Drums of Death, Joe Goddard, Cooly G, Brackles & Patchwork Pirates. So if you're in London tonight then make sure you get yourself down! Facebook event here.

Warp have released a whole load of new details about the upcoming Hudson Mohawke LP: the LP is called Butter and is due out on the 12th October. You can check the artwork above, and HudMo himself has put together an album minimix, which you can cop here(right click, save as.). For more info about the album and to preorder, head to the Warp Records website, or the HudMo myspace.

Next up we've finally got some news about the Night Slugs EP (which is forthcoming on Jackmaster's Dress 2 Sweat imprint.) The EP was originally due out on the 14th, but I've been assured that it is coming SOON, and problems with the label are responsible for the delay. In the meantime, Bok Bok has put together a Dubplates mix, full of exclusives from both the Night Slugs boys.

We've finally been given a glimps at Pioneer's new range of CDJ's, which seem to feature some kind of headup twaveform display (I'm hoping it's nice a touch responsive)... James Zabiela has recently expressed his delight at the new features, which I think are a strong answer for anyone DJs wondering whether to switch to digital... to just stay put with CD decks.
Here's a couple of pics of the proposed 'CDJ 2000'.

Also this weekend sees the third anniversary of one of my favourite labels in the game, Trouble & Bass, who've got Skream and Benga coming over to Brooklyn for a very special party.
I've been a huge fan of the label for the last couple of years and hope to see DTL at least once more this year... fabric sort out another residency night please!
