New Tunes for A New Year

Mega busy week for me so far - meeting with UK hip hop MC Twizzle tomorrow to confirm some big news about a live ting going down between me and him, also got some very big news in the pipeline about the Squeaky Bleeps crew hosting Room 2 at legendary student night Union's next date in Brighton. Plus I've just been confirmed to play Milk Teeth at Audio, Brighton this Friday, supporting man like Tomb Crew, Boogaloo Crew + Jon Curtis (perhaps Jon and I should form a crew just to finish off the lineup??) Flyer for this below, check out the Milk Teeth blog here and facebook event here. In addition to that I'll be trying to keep the blog going - so to get things kicked off in style a little post rammed full of tunes.

COUNT // B-More Forward

Classic bmore bootleg from the Count - this is one of the first things I heard from Herve, and it remains to this day absolute fyaah - one of Herve's tunes that has a real sense of longevity that some of his stuff lacks (no doubt due to it's emphasis on baltimore club over fidget house), although the quality of that vocal sample (Ding Dong's Badman Forward Badman Pull Up) may also have something to say in that department.)

Stush creates a suprise banger here, livening up Hard House Banton's massive funky anthem 'Sirens' with a cheeky vocal sample.

It seems as though the Lucky Me imprint can do no wrong at the moment, and Mike Slott's mini album 'Lucky 9teen' is no different - if you like this tune then make sure you get on the album right away - buy links here.

Todd Edwards // Agony


Classic garage roller from the Teddward machine from his album Odyssey. If you're a London head make sure you check out Fabric this friday - the Numbers crew represent in Room 1 and the new Fabric compilation launch party dominates Room 3.

NYE Edit from Riton that mashes up Auld Lang Syne and Township Funk. Undoubtedly one of the cleverest bootlegs I've heard in a while, if you were out somewhere this NYE during the bells, it seems there's a pretty large chance you heard this bootleg. If so, comment and let us know where and played by who!

Riton & Primary 1 // Radiates (Joker Remix)


New Joker remix of the new Riton & Primary 1 collab, Joker using heavy bass and one of the best bits of drum programming I've heard so far this year (not saying much really at this stage in the year!). Get right on this.

JJ Louis // 007


Last up another classic bit of UKG, I clocked this when I heard Plastician play it at the Rinse Xmas party at FWD last week - brings the bass and novelty samples in a big way. What a jokes tune!

Apologies for the lack of any massive writeups today, as I said a very busy week for me, so I thought I'd let the music do the talking!
