Roska – Rinse 2 review on Data Transmission

“There’s a definite Detroit influence within and the end result is, to paraphrase one of the original founding fathers of that city’s techno scene, the sound of Soul II Soul, Underground Resistance and the Artful Dodger jamming in an elevator.”

New Roska album gets the verbal treatment down Data Transmission’s ends. Hit the quote for the full review.

Azealia Banks – 1991 EP

She’s back. Azealia Banks returns with the 1991 EP. All that is getting said so far is heat, heat, heat.

PAUL WELLER-WHEN YOUR GARDEN’S OVERGROWN – THE DEADSTOCK 33S DRONE DUB

Justin Robertson drops this rather nifty dubbed out psych rock interpretation of Paul Weller via his Deadstock 33s project. Some great synth lines and brilliant spaced out vibes on the go. And as for the tablas…

Jai Paul – Jasmine (Ben Gomori’s Jafar Edit) [FREE DOWNLOAD]

Ben Gomori takes the Jai Paul original and adds some tempo to give it more of a lazy deep house vibe, gifting the original’s sexiness a dancefloor vibe. Sunday grooves aplenty

Jessie Ware – What You Won’t Do For Love

Jessie Ware is turning out to be quite the talent. The Disclosure remix is still one of the tunes of 2012 (peep this vid of it at IMS) and this is a great cover of the Bobby Caldwell classic. I absolutely love that record, I love the 2Pac song that sampled it and I think I pretty much now love this to bits. And anything that allows me to also post this classic video form my teenage years makes me mega happy. Thanks Jessie x

Last Japan Mix on Ransom Note

Read the full article here, but Bullet Train spacey garage maestro Last Japan has delivered a stunning mix for Ransom Note. Great weekend vibes

Eats Everything – Jagged Edge (Official Video)

Heavy, heavy tune. Video is indulging the Bristol producer’s food issues, sadly not an ode to awful 90s rnb as the track title may suggest.

Disclosure in the Mixmag DJ Lab

Last Friday Disclosure tore it up in the Mixmag lab. I basically gurned all the way through my last hour of work. Relive their brilliance here.

Big Fun In The Big Town DVD (Official Trailer)


“Dutch filmmaker, journalist and rap fanatic Bram Van Splunteren stepped into the city for one intense week in 1986. He was armed with five things: a camera crew, a map, a deep respect for the hip-hop artform, a list of phone numbers, and a burning desire to get to the bottom of what this still-growing subculture was all about. By the time he left, he had the answers he needed, along with a treasure trove of golden video footage. Tragically, these images never returned from Europe, languishing in obscurity from hip-hop’s homeland for more than a quarter-century. Until now.”

This looks SUPER hot!

Justin Martin – Ghettos & Gardens


“Back in 2002 Metro Area managed to pull together a collection of songs which built on the manifesto set out by Daft Punk’s Homework, showcasing that jack’s groove could translate to a full LP. A decade later, Justin Martin has reminded us all that the template is achievable.”

I hope, I really hope, that this album gets better with age. Because this could very well be the masterpeice house music has needed but only six months will truly tell the tale. Get on it now though.
