Let's Love

Keeping it short today...I am really feeling this at the moment.

And this too, although it's been around a bit longer

Last off I've got to say that although the new stuff from Lone isn't necessarily a massive step forward from his work last year, i'm really feeling it. The R&S vinyl release is a great one for the collector. One of the vinyl's comes as see-through acetate.

Here is another Lone bit, up for Download. This one is the remix of Golden Girls. It's got that same dreamlike rave vibe that all Lone tracks seem to hold.

For those of you in London coming up this Friday is Bricks at CAMP by Old Street Station. Don't go being a fool and stay in on April Fools. There is a solid line up with Boddika, Scratcha DVA, Jam City and T. Williams making it an eye catching affair.

Boddika, aka one half of Instra:Mental, has been smashing it of late. His dark juke and acid influenced beats have been a highlight of 2011 so far. This tune was given out today by Scuba's label Hotflush, on which Mr Boddika has forthcoming material. It's a beast download below..

Be sure to check out Voyeur, When I Dip and Electron, they are all superb. I would head down just to see him, let alone the other people on the bill.

Scratcha DVA has done a mix exclusively for the night, here it is

Enjoy the tunes, follow the link for mix tracklist

(£7 thereafter)

C.A.M.P (City Arts & Music Project)

Introducing - Youandewan

Those of you who purchased or have listened to Midland's superb Bring Joy EP, will have found it hard to not hear the Youandewan remix.

It is a first class 11 minute long beast of a remix. An impressive journey of snappy house snare drums, muffled kicks and tinny hight hats paired with subtly stifled synths and glimmering vocals.

Admittedly a few months back I was sent a Youandewan track and it was lost in the maelstrom of emails that any present day journalism student receives. But I am finally getting round to posting that very tune.

With similar drum styles and patterns as the Midland remix it's another beauty. Sauntering along at a perfect 120bpm. I love this track because it reminds me of Watergate club in Berlin, the residents would start off the night playing slow and subtle tracks like this before smashing it later on.

The Leeds based producer has been receiving support from some big names, here's Skream playing one of hisdubstep influenced tracks on Rinse FM

Links to his Souncloud and to his Facebook so you can stay in the loop

Enjoy, I have been

The Look

Two producers very much under the radar at present are Jacques Greene and Koreless. The two are bright talents forming part of a wider group of exciting producers that the tail end of 2010 and beginning of 2011 has thrown up.

In Canadian Jacques Greene's music there is a more recognisable house influence, contrasting with the dubstep influence present in Koreless's, although two both use brilliant vocal samples and are partial to a 2step beat. There is a warm clean feeling to Koreless's style whereas Greene's tunes carry more dance floor clout.

Both of them have forthcoming releases. Check their respective soundclouds for details.

New Joy

It's looking very much like Pete O'Grady is set to kill it once again in 2011. Better known as Joy Orbison, the man behind big hits of last year Hyph Mngo and The Shrew Would Have Cushioned The Blow. There has been a distinct switch up in his sound. Often a slower tempo has been adopted and he borrows much from the housier side of things. It is a stirring change and one that has brought him success already with a scheduled release for Hotflush. Ladywell and BB were both great tracks with a house energy and tempo, and if you choose to believe that Sicko Cell is his too then we can safely say that this year holds sizeable amounts of good vibes for him.

James Fox

Londoner James Fox's production is very strong. His tunes are brilliant in their simplicity. I like the tempo and the way in which he fades in the synths, particularly in these two tracks. Ramadanman did a good remix too of his track "Put It Back". Some people rate this guy very highly, I would have to agree with them...

Melé is a producer i'm feeling a lot. He hails from Liverpool and to me his tunes have just the right amount of influence from the grime and funky side of things.

Just about a month ago he gave away this track for free via Soundcloud


Here are some more bits. His tunes have got a good frenetic jump up vibe to them.
