prison garde - free album
i’ll admit it, i’d never heard of this fella. apparently he’s been around the block a few times, recorded with some notable types etc, but don’t hear from me - there’s a great in-depth interview after the jump (click artwork for transport), where you can also dl this mega beat tape. most interestingly there’s a collab with lunice and ango in the post, called...
niño mix for raid system
RAID SYSTEM MIX #001 - Nino by Raidsystem on Mixcloud go check this new mix from niño, the first in a new series from the dope as hell japanese ‘raid system’ contingent. also well worth peeping their regular shows on rhythm incursions. shouts to broken haze and xlii for the hook up.
lapti - livin' 4
continuing my obsession with the russian beat scene, this new track from lapti is a stonker. heavy beats, heavy synths, big vocal sample. oh ok then. stream below or download from altered zones Lapti - Livin’ 4 by Lapti
nicolas jaar - work it
just wait til this starts to get going around the 2.30 mark. this guy, jeeez.
silly thoughts (balam acab remix)
has anyone else noticed that the term ‘witch house’ seems to have all but disappeared from internets? i’m sure not a day went by a few months back when it was thrust down our ethernet cables. i never liked it anyway, and i’m sure the genre-hawks would have branded this remix with the same ugly brush. Silly Thoughts (Balam Acab remix) by TheCollegeMusicListener full of...

arkist - fill your coffee
you know we like skweee over here right? well how about skweee-step? or something like that. this arkist track came out on apple pips a few weeks ago and it’s defintely gots the funk, oodles of it. instant hit in our camp, pete pitch played it on the last radio show and i’ve had it on heavy rotation on me speakers since i first heard it. Fill Your Coffee by Arkist
big shouts to cyprien clément-delmas for using buio omega for this clip, see some more of his work here. love the water pistols, and the fake death. you can still bag niño’s clase de 1984 ep, from which this beast is lifted, right here. we’re currently waiting on a video for a track from the new v.c. 12” (aka dky003 - i’ll post some clips and info on that soon). hype!

autre ne veut
this guy is awesome. i know, i know. his voice bugs you, and the overly dramatic 80s production style gets on on your nerves. but frankly, the music is amazing. this album from last year clean blew me away, then a few weeks ago fact gave away this track for free. wallop. loved it. anyhow, there’s a new ep on hippos in tanks, and guess what… it’s bloomin great too. come to the...
Drake - Marvin's Room (Shlohmo's Thru Tha Floor...

shorty swing my way
this b bravo remix did the rounds a while back, but the frite nite chaps have given it a re-issue over on their bandcamp page. and why the hell not; it’s a super sexy dancefloor gem well worth parting with your email address for. definitely looking forward to some new material from this man. &lt;a href=”http://music.fritenite.com/album/frite-nite-trax-9”...
dynooo - vvideo hair
i’ve had a keen eye on dynooo since sluga turned me onto him sometime last year, and more so since he launched the surf kill label with heavily slept on beat-scene-whiz cupp cave. their recent collaborative work as salted slugs is definitely in my highlights of 2011 thus far. great to hear some of the tracks on this album touching on similar (boogie) territory to that salted slugs ep,...

russian dream team
as far as I know pixelord coined the phrase ‘russian dream team’ a few weeks back when hud mo and doom played moscow, supported by a troop of fierce russian beatmakers, aka the ‘dream team’. if only we could run shows like that down here. anyhow, i thought it would be nice to post a selection of tracks from said dream team including a couple by our new guy on the block,...

shell of light (shlohmo remix)
ooofff. man like shlohmo goes in on shell of light. and it’s full of win. stream below, download here. his album is due on friends of friends soon. Shell of Light (Shlohmo Remix) - Burial by shlohmo also well worth giving this one a spin, still my fave beat of his.
Remixes by Lapalux there was a time about 3 or 4 weeks ago when my inbox was blessed every other day or so with a soundclud notification from this fella. sick beat, after sick beat, upon sick beats. christ knows how much heat he’s cooked up since then. anyhow these remixes will have to do for now, plus this ep on pictures and this freebie from a while back. i swear though, none of this...
niño live at sonar
i was gutted not to be able to make it to sonar this year to see our guy niño rock the rbma stage, pete pitch tells me he smashed it, and by the sounds of this recording he ain’t far wrong. apparently there were a few technicals at the start so this is only the second half. get down and get synthy. the man recently got himself a facebook page. go like that
i’ve been playin the new lil b album a heck of a lot over the last week and this track just hits the spot in so many ways; the lost boys sample does it for me all day long. the last time my ears properly pricked up to a tune sampling cry little sister was at a outdoor rave way back when, 6am-sun-coming-up-hard-techno-riddim. after a wee google i find out it was produced by clams casino....
Playgroup Festival 2011 from PlaygroupFestival on Vimeo. wicked promo video for Playgroup Festival, which we’re playing in a few weeks. we host the bar on the sunday night (august 7th) - more info on their website the vid was recorded a month or so ago in the centre of brighton by our buddies at fractured films. i helped out by plying the director / cameraman with beer, i even made some...
bobby tankin it
we’ve been playing a few of bobby tank’s beats on the radio show recently so it was a nice suprise to find this mix on monster playground, perfect for a friday arvo in the office. it’s a lush blend of his own astral jams with some boogie and hip hop. big ups for including the mweslee remix of slugabed.
CBR001 - Om Unit vs Kromestar - Solar Cycle / Merkabah Promo from cosmicbridgerecs on Vimeo. been a massive fan of both these tracks since i first heard them; definitely a great first release for the the big man om unit’s new label, cosmic bridge. if you tuned into rinse fm the other saturday you might have heard his collab with arp101, plenty heater. 92bpm upped that show over here....

we’re finally coming to london. well, officially we came last year for a senseless records party but this is the real deal. donky gang in full effect. myself, sluga and ghost mutt will all be manning the decks alongside residents from hoya and streets of beige. we’re kinda excited about it all to be honest. more info on the whole thing here
