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

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
