A Tribute to Klang Club (Unclear records)

The above is a quick snippet of an EP released on Unclear Records on the 22nd October as a tribute to Klang nightclub, a Tuscan rave spot that purports to have a bit of a history during the five years it was open from 2008-13. The tracks are all form people who’ve played their before, with Baby Ford offering a breathy sparse groove in ‘Satellite Stroll (Edge Of The Night Mix)’ and a typically mechanical clunker from Roman Flugel called ‘Candy Crack’.

For me though the jack on Okain’s ‘Living proof’ is absolute gold, gorgeous swinging house around the 120bpm mark with classic claps and percussion, and then some beautifully chimy stabs and even a little bit of sax. Proper taps aff tackle for Croatia and beefa, and the kind of record that you hear mid afternoon in Panoramabar on a Sunday. Boss, in other words.

Rucks forthcoming on SoSure Music

Got sent the promo to the next EP on SoSure Music from Rucks recently, and it’s lovely emotive deep house. You can see a preview of it up above, with a voiceover that if I’m being honest, does grate a little. Don’t let that put you off when the EP drops in November though, because if you like New Jersey garage influenced house it’ll be right up your street.

To keep you ticking over you can grab the equally lovely ‘Hard 2 Find’ via liking the label’s Facebook page, which you can hear playing out below.

Nike / Air Wildwood LE (ACG) Trainers

It’s been one heck of a long summer, and apparently it’s set to continue this nice weather for a few more weeks – obviously great. Don’t front though, October is still round the corner and soon enough winter will be here and it’ll be fucking grim again. Proper grim.

In my infinite knowledge I’ve decided to plan ahead this year for my winter trainers and bed a pair in a little bit earlier than usual, and went for these badboys from Nike. Part of their rugged ACG range, I read a few things on blogs and whatnot which basically makes them capable of surviving a nuclear holocaust, a Daily Mail hate campaign and the sexual advances of Dave Lee Travis, so they should be great for my cheesy size 11 feet. Plus they look great, I don’t know how hot pink andolive green works but it does.

Bag a pair from Oi Polloi (where I nabbed the pics from).

Still the illest – GIT feature on ‘Ready to Die.

“New York’s first overtly mainstream gangster rapper with some of the most ludicrously enjoyable wordplay to boot”

It’s 20 years to the day since the Notorious BIG drop kicked the world with one of the greatest LPs ever. To cleebrate a man who may very well be the greatest of all time, I wrote a lengthy love in on Getintothis about the album and what it’s meant. Hit the quote above to see it. RIP Chris Wallace
