THROBBING DISCO GROOVES -The latest release from Duff Disco bops and shuffles its way into the wild on Composite Records, another finely programmed dance floor burner. Just yesterday I bit the bullet and shelled out a bunch of earth credits for the whole Duff Disco back catalogue on vinyl which should be wiggling its way to me as I type this. My pants are swollen with excitement. Shortly after purchasing the physical release Mister Duff sent me the digital files in an email, which is massively convenient. Just a few years ago I was [...]
US ELECTRO BASS - Uncompromising electro from 214 Electro. Do my ears deceive me or has he sampled the rap stylings from legendary (for all the wrong reasons) Speak The Hungarian Rapper? "Yeh... Cummon." come on by 214_electro
SHIMMY SHIMMY YA - Prince Fatty drops his Supersize Album later this month upon which you will find this reggae cover smash of the ODB classic "Shimmy Shimmy Ya" amongst a whole host of polished reggae and dub productions. The Bandcamp search tags for Supersize include the "Brighton" which seems a little up itself. I fucking hate Brighton but I must concede that clicking through on Bandcamp for tracks tagged "Brighton" does, regrettably turn up some quality music. Bugger. One day I'll have to just get myself a smack habit and go record shopping down there. [...]
The influx of Eastern European musical influences is as welcome on these shores as their beautiful Balkan ladies. The men however all seem to have 2 piece tracksuit ensembles and heads like turnips which kind of makes me scared. However, cool edits like this make those bored looking Serbian dudes that you find in Hammersmith that bit less threatening.
LAID BACK CHIPTUNE - once again some dirty little spod has managed to fuck up my afternoon by hacking my wordpress with all sorts of malicious code. I'm pretty sure it's not personal, all the WP blogs on my host got hit and I'm now having to rebuild the whole thing. So, much apologies for the loss of service I'm going to spend my day off putting this blog back in order. This Datasette release will be the theme tune to my digit fiddling. Normal service will be resumed shortly. Novelty [...]
Since I first ticked an eighth of gammy flatpress when I was 14 I’ve always had the shadow of debt stalking me. Loans,drug debts, credit cards, over drafts, “services rendered”....I’ve always had money bounce out of my wallet to pay for something I’d bagged on credit. But this week The Unthinkable happened. I finally paid off my student loan. Proving that not only does crime pay, but the hours are really quite flexible. Which means I don’t owe anyone any money. At all. Not a fucking bean. Lets celebrate [...]
LASER CUMBIA - rolling synthetic Cumbia from South America. Apparetly a Cholita is a girl who is harder than a coffin nail and not to be fucked with as she's probably got a gun and is chopped up on marching powder.
BASS BREAKS DOWNLOAD - when you're stuck for a press shot for an underground artist just stick their name into a Google image search and post whatever the fuck comes up. Now, m0del101 COULD have had a picture of a scantily clad clothes horse or a snap of a vintage synth. But I didn't want those. He could have had, to accompany this tune of his, an image of a gun, golf club or Arnie himself . But I'm in charge here and I didn't want those either. So Oli Marchant, [...]
ELECTRO CRUNK - I've invented a new genre - see how I blaze trails and set trends?! Just stumbled across this snippet of the forthcoming release on Monkey Town and thought you should probably know about it. Whateever the fuck it is, you need to hear it.
YANKEE DUBSTEP SKANK -From across the pond the unmistakable sound of Bassbin Twins drops for his latest release "Eat Em Up" to help nurse my tattered brains. Another Wednesday night on the tiles yep. The Den in London absolutely smashes it for a midweek party - it comes HIGHLY recommended with a LOUDAT stamp of approval for a heaving dubstep rave-up. Thankfully the lure of a camper packed full of nitrous and a miscellany of festival detritus was rather sensibly decided against (nice move Mr T)and now I'm at work after an hours sleep and .....I'm... [...]
DYNAMITE BREAKS EDIT - There are a millions of lovely press shots of Miss Dynamite littered across the internet. Shots of her looking dead urban, some looking super glam others looking really quite smoking hot. But why the fuck would I choose those pics when I can have this one? A really unflattering shot which perfectly highlights her re-entry sheild of a forehead. Get this free breaks refix of Lions Den she did with the Nextmen, neatly beefed up by the Beat Assassins BEAT ASSASSINS VS MS DYNAMITE [...]

The next Culture Class lands at the Roundhouse in Camden next week. The wingman snaffled me a ticket (gee whaddaguy) If you don't know the format - 4 sound stages representing 4 crews are set up in the awesome setting of the Roundhouse and each take it in turn to drop a track and blow the shit out of the crowd. The one that makes the most noise and gets the best crowd reaction at the end of the night- wins. Check the video for the last Soundclash earlier this year. Quite what Trojan are doing [...]
WIGGLING APPROVED - deep and dubby disco excursion from The Revenge to hype the forthcoming Warm birthday bash at Corsica Studios this Saturday 9th Ocotber. From those lovely people over at Warm HQ
OTT GLITCH METAL - This track has to get an honorable mention. The time of year approaches when the days in the UK are are cold, miserable and wet . Categorically the best way to spend a weekend is to go out, get monumentally wrecked and wiggle your little socks off knowing that there is NOTHING better to do than spend the next day in the pub getting plastered and talking bollocks with your mates. During the winter months local pub landlords will find me and my mates outside their establishment on a sunday morning [...]
MUX showreel from MUX on Vimeo . Taking the craft of the mashup to next level Mux seamlessly boots together the audio and vision from a range of video clips into this unique movie of VJ prowess. I've not really kept across the developments of AV DJ stuff but knowing there are people out there thinking on the video level (pun for the AV geeks out there..hoho...errgh) and taking time to sort stuff like this out is fills me with joy and I'l be honest, sensations of total inadequacy. Clever bastards. [...]
If you're going to have a hangover, get paid for it. S.O.M.E at the Den in London I can report is a TOP night out. I am currently nursing colourful bruises from sonic common assault and GBH after an evening wiggling to mahoosive bass tunes at their first birthday party. S.O.M.E. has got a lot to offer - It's got The End's crystal clear sound system occupied by many luminaries of bass and step, it has a smiling crowd, a liberal sprinkling of beautiful people and just the right amount of [...]
A little while our team turned up to a Bestival totally unprepared aside from a mahoosive back of disco prescriptions and the largest collection of Cliff Richard merchandise you have ever seen. To get into the spirit of things we got dressed up as Cliff fans. We had it ALL. T-shirts, ponchos, watches, clutch bags, brollies, badges, scarves, hats....we looked amazing . In finest Cliff regalia we emerged triumphantly from our tents to find Scroobious Pip and Dan Le Sac wrestling with canvas. They looked suitably bemused. Then as if by [...]
