com truise - datebar
i was a big fan of com truise’s debut album, and this freebee ain’t a far cry from the layered synths and pulseline bass that made me fall for it. much pleased someone has booked him to play brighton in november. download here, stream below. Datebar by Com Truise
the vibes is right
om unit taking barrington levy to another level… head nodding vibes. the internet tells me his next ep is on the way (on civil music i think), so look out for that. Barrington Levy - The Vibes Is Right (Om Unit edit) Free Download by omunit
shlohmo - fact mix
i meant to post about the new shlohmo album, bad vibes, when it dropped; it’s easily one of my most listened to in the last few months. i’m sure everyone else wrote this too, but it caught me totally off-guard. i was expecting a lot of this instead it’s all crackly and bad ass in a very different way, which actually makes way more sense. from the outset this mix grabs you by the...
motem - the forthcoming mixtape
click. download. listen. enjoy. this mixtape is absolutely smashing

mixmag go skweee
yep that’s right, mixmag know what’s up. check a wee write up on the new v.c. ep and the ‘superfluid’ video (which has stacked over 5000 views now!) here. next stop, ibiza.
machinedrum in brighton
i’m really pleased to be on this line up; so good to see machinedrum bringing his live to set to brighton. and all for free. EDIT: ital tek now added to the line up…
motëm - all of the above
i’ve had motem’s ‘the forthcoming mixtape’ on repeat over the weekend, and this is easily one of my fave cuts from the album. make sure you pick this up when he releases it on thursday this week. if you haven’t seen one of his homemade videos before you’re in for a treat…

the donky is back...
after a nice long rest from running club nights to concentrate more on releasing records, we return to the dancefloor in September with a bi-monthly free entry residency at riki tiks, brighton (which has recently undergone a tasty re-furb and an injection of bass). we welcome two more brighton debuts for mlr, editor of the outstanding sonic router blog, and bobby tank, whose astrological funk...
donky x hivemind vol 11
it’s always a pleasure when sluga makes the journey down from london, and we always end up getting that little bit more drunk. good times recording this show. we also welcomed our good buddy halp (lowriders collective) into the studio, all the way from the netherlands. great to see you thomas. oh and of course, the music was ace too. recorded live on thursday 11th august, 2011 if you like...
fitzoy north - am pear
this has been a staple part of my dj sets for the last forever, and here it is now for free. EDIT: i spoke too soon, it ain’t free anymore. best fun skweee. best silly dance moves possible - teenwolf prom style (admittedly that reference could be a bit out there, but it’s what the stabby synths always remind me of) AM Pear by Fitzroy North
813 live at rad bbq
opening track here is firefighter (forthcoming donky pitch) omfg
offshore - pepper
we’re mad keen on offshore’s latest ep over here. and look at this, a free mp3 on xlr8r. now that’s nice. click the (really really boss) artwork for transport. but to be honest you’d probably be better off just parting with a few quid and copping the whole darn thing.

uuuuuuhhh. more keyboard kid incoming. ...
free young l beat tape
i don’t know too much about this fella, apart from the fact that he’s part of the based crew, who have been getting me all hot and bothered recently - lil b, keyboard kid, clams casino etc. but what i do know is that this free beat tape has some great hip hop on it. click art for music
v.c. - superfluid (video)
pow. our first music video. full screen, lights down low, volume up loud. lets go. our deepest thanks go to out to antony barkworth-knight for taking the time to make this for us. see some more of his work here
jonwayne - thanks, bro
womp. been a massive fan of this chap for well over a minute or two - ever since he dropped some crazy ass beat tape last year, then came the wayniac and then bowser. so many goodies within these three releases. if i could remember the name of that first one i’d link that up too, but memory fails me. go fish. EDIT: kelpe just pointed out the first tape was 404 madness. bag it here just...
ghost mutt and donky pitch in idj
awesome to see both us and ghost mutt featured in this month’s idj mag. plus sluga gets a wee mention in the rising stars round-up. sadly this is their last issue… another print mag bites the dust :(
slugabed outlook mix
great mix from sluga here, including some 813 (forthcoming on donky pitch later this year), plus one of my all time fave slugabed beats, sex. he’ll be live in the studio with myself, pete pitch and halp on our radio show this thursday. right here, 7-10gmt Slugabed Outlook Festival Mix 2011 by Outlook Festival on Mixcloud
s-type - sweet vixen
been playing this track a lot recently, bag it for free over at phuture labs, where it also tells you about this ep which i somehow totally slept on. i’m just downloading it now, hoping for more of the same please. if that’s not enough get your self over finest ego bandcamp to dl the below compilation. compiled by laurent fintoni it’s 20+ tracks of straight heat, including...
stags, toads and badgers
had a great time at playgroup festival this weekend. so many friendly faces. lots of people in silly outfits, which as a professional miserable bastard i just can’t be a part of. thanksy to figure of wax, moscow and driscoll for bringing the heat to our stint in the bar on sunday night. ghost mutt missed his bus so sorry to anyone that wanted to see his trademark shoulder shake. finally got...

more balam acab goodness
balam acab dropped this bootleg freebee last night via his facebook account. man’s on fire. even higher hopes for the album. ps. if someone can tell me how i get one of those ‘fancy’ streaming players on the go that would be grand. xx
v.c. - superfluid (video stills)
here’s a few stills taken from our new video for the v.c. track ‘superfluid’, lifted from his ep which will be released on donky pitch in early september. we ♥ antony barkworth-knight for doing such an amazing job and can’t wait to share the full video with you next week, it’s really dope. check more of his work here
pop massacre vol 2
i love pop music and i love beats music, so for me this pop massacre series is a stroke of genius from the friends of friends camp (who recently released one of our album’s of the year thus far, by salva). this second volume is less hectic than the first, employing slightly more pop and toning down the massacre, and all the better for it. dza’s reworking of the smiths mutes the...
proximal records - beat stew vol. 3
listened to this start to finish whilst cooking dinner tonight, shitty hungover pasta if you must ask. it has possibly one of my fave matthewdavid beats to date, and that’s saying something - a little more structure than most of his stuff on brainfeeder, alas it’s just too short! all the benedek stuff is awesome, especially the track with sahy uhns. he has a collab ep forthcoming...
having not really done a proper party since march (we’ll be resuming regular dates very soon, but more on that another time), it’s fair to say i’d been looking forward to this weekend for some time. mixcloud party (with jonny dub from hoya hoya and the streets of beige gang) on the friday, followed by the beige all day bash on the saturday. shouts to everyone involved on friday, we all had a...
