Forthcoming Numbers

This is going to be a serious release! Two heavyweights Roska & Untold collaborating is always going to be big! This one is due at the end of September, the 27th to be exact. Make sure you get your pre-orders in as this should fly off the shelves! If you havent already heard the track check them out HERE. Myth has recieved a lot more attention however personally the flip 'Long Range' is the one!

Forthcoming Night Slugs

House prodcuer Jacques Greene is the newest edition to the ever growing Night Slugs imprint. In true Night Slugs fashion this track is built for the dancefloor and is a very sexy number! Theres is an uncertainty about his identity however, over at Lowriders Collective it seems not to be! L-vis 1990 & Bok Bok have continued to raised the levels with their label and in ym eyes will surely be a contender for label of the year. He's also got stuff coming on LuckyMe so look out for that.Myspace.

Ninja Tune x The Bug

Couple of free tunes from the guys over at Ninja Tune for download over at their XX site. You can grab a preview edit of a new tune called Light A Fire, as well as Skream's remix of The Bug's classic tune Poison Dart, and all this for the price of an email address!

Introducing : Chesca

To be honest I know absolutely noting about her. Floating through soundcloud this morning and came across her and I'm glad I did! From the looks of her myspace and her style she's definitely from East London! She produces, sings and DJs seems like she got it all! Her beats are synthy, soulful and funky - falling under the modern funk / future boogie category. If the weather were better it would the perfect soundtrack to a summer's bbq. With a tiny bit more digging I found an article on her in The Stool Pigeon from May 2009 that says she won the Diesel-U-Music competition's electronic category and had a release shortly after. Then she was also 4 months pregnant so I'm guessing music took a back seat for a while. This one directly below was uploaded nearly 3 weeks ago and is built for the dance floor! The other bits are a bit older so hopefully we get to see some new bits! Good to see another female doing it big in a male dominated scene! P.s Disco's not dead!

Ninja Tune XX Party - October 2nd

This is night that is not to be missed! Not much more can be said about it really! Below you can preview tracks from the stunning box set that is released in 5 weeks.

Ninja Tune XX Box Set Previews (CDs 1-4 only) by Ninja Tune XX

This weeks free download comes from Kevin 'The Bug' Martin so if you haven't already register on the website to download it as there are only 2 days left to. You also get Skream's remix of 'Poison Dart' for free as well so its worth while!

They're really pushing the promo hard over there as there is also a collaboration T-shirt with Trainerspotter going for only £20 which is a bargain by any means - modelled by the ever mighty Roots Manuva. His new album 'Duppy Writer,' out September 6th on Big Dada.

"Entitled Duppy Writer, the new LP features reworks of Manuva tracks by a producer known as Wrong Tom. Manuva first met Wrong Tom just before the release of his 2008 album Slime & Reason, and asked him to produce a dub version of his single "Buff Nuff." Manuva was so pleased with the result that he eventually commissioned Wrong Tom to rework selections from a variety of his previous albums. Duppy Writer collects these new versions, offering new, dubbed out takes on classic Manuva tracks, all of which appear with slightly different titles (e.g. "Motion 5000" becomes "Motion 82")." - Taken from RA

Andreya Triana x Mount Kimbie

A match made in heaven in my opinion, Andreya's voice over MK's synths and percussion was always bound to be a winner and it is! She releases her debut full length next month on Ninja Tune so get excited about that! Oh and if you don't already have MK's LP Crooks And Lovers then go cop that as well!

The Hundred In The Hands

Few freebies for you now courtesy of Warp's The Hundred In The Hands. Very few bands really catch my eye and ear but this duo from New York are definitely one of them! On a similar tip to The xx so if you were into their debut LP then pretty sure you'll love these tracks. Their debut album is released on Warp next month so keep an eye out for that!

Introducing : Damu

He's already had a feature over at Hedmuk but here's another one for you! At the moment he's in an unknown location mountain climbing but hopefully there's internet wherever he is. Not to be confused with Damu The Fudgemunk (if you don't know find out!) Damu is a 21 year old Funky producer from Manchester. He's only been at it since the beginning on 2009 but who would have known! Formerly a producer of jungle he's found his home at the slower house bpm allowing him more space to play with rhythm and percussion. Having played piano from the tender ago of 6 as well as guitar, glock, bongoes, and violin (he even had dreams of singing in the West end), you can tell his musical background aided his production. He said he's only been producing seriously for 6 months and already after such a short time he's got EP's forthcoming on Local Action, Silverback records (his is coming after Nzuguzunguzu!) and a possible 12" on Swing and Skip Audio so keep your eyes peeled and ears open! With hopes for releases on Night Slugs and Hyperdub his ambitions don't stop there as he hopes to climb the seven summits as long as Zomby doesn't kill him first! For any dance music fan his summer synths and futuristic 8bit bleeps are sure to get you moving.

Shout outs to his friends and fellow producers - Brey, Young Montana ,Kaiser as well as Local Action & Silver back.
