Night Light

Just an update on ones to watch Dark Sky. The London trio's ep is set to drop very soon, 12th July to be precise. Among the tracks featured on the release will be Reflex. With a very unassuming start, you could be forgiven for thinking this was a more downtempo and laid back song.....not likely, have a listen

XLR8R gave away Night Light as a download, we're passing it on to those who missed out. This should be yet another reason for you to part with some coin when the ep drops. Another unassuming start but into some beautifully worked synths...

Nas and Damien Marley's collaboration is getting remixed by swathes of producers. Foamo's effort is a nice bass heavy one, a sure fire thing to kick up all kinds of fuss on dance floors this summer.....

The only thing i'd say is that it's a pity that Foamo over uses the siren noise. Anyhow it is still a banger...

Maayan Nidam

This incredibly elegant looking woman you see before you is none other than Maayan Nidam. Based out in house mecca Berlin she is leading the way in a new movement of female house producers. Her blend of styles leaves a jazzy funky flavour in your ears. Her ep is a recent release on the fantastic Wolf + Lamb label....

The chef advises that this is a dish best served loud...
