3 choice cuts of booty shakin’ G House from Sankuh, the title track is dark, twisting and infectious, ‘Ass On Fire’ is a trippy acid house esque workout and ‘Control Your Feet’ completes a great 3 tracker with more dark late night riddims & snappy beats, essential!!
Jason Laidback‘s first release on his new label Nocturnal Activity is an excellent starter, some quality House & Garage here, the fun and funky ‘Hipsters’ with it’s tongue in cheek samples and a lovely rolling sub underpinning the warm pads and atmospheric chords. ‘Paid’ takes another quirky sample and builds an infectious medley of uplifting ravey chords around it. While both tracks are excellent, my pick goes to ‘Do It Do It’, 2 Step meets pure old skool rave for maximum satisfaction and one of the best deep house tunes I’ve heard in recent months. A really stong start and an essential release, thumbs up!!!

The legendary Dreadzone drop their second single from their 7th studio LP ‘Escapades’ on their own Dubwiser imprint and its a firey punchy slice of dub infused riddim with impassioned vocals, on top of that there’s the stunning Teddy Killerz remix which has been turning heads everywhere, futher remixes come from Bazil and a Gregory Isaacs inspired Reggae bass re rub by KingDread.
Last year Neon Steve started his “Free’on” series and gave away stacks tunes. After not quite hitting his original mark of 14 free tunes (some got picked up by labels before they became free) he has already got off the mark in 2015 with his first freebie.
“Work” is a killer track which sits firmly in the bass & breaks category and should find favour with the Booty Breaks and house lovers alike.
Wicked slice of progressive breakbeat from Bobalino who remixes Reuben Halsey’s “Meaning Of Life” into a dreamy soundscape of breaks, lush chords and ear hugging awesomeness.
Mr Jem Stone, (aka Soul Of Man, Jem Panufnik, Finger Lickin Records) is soon set to release a brand new album entitled “Stone Grooves Vol.1″. If you’ve been following the exploits of Jem via Bandcamp you will be familiar with his eclectic styles so will have some idea of what to expect from the long player. Those that don’t can expect (in Jem’s own words) “a deep, gentle, scruffy, stompy, bumpy, flappy and downright scrunchy beefcake musical journey into the depths of my soul.”
The freebie on offer today is a teaser called “Penshala”. It’s a mellow, slow burner that is perfect late night, chill out material and has got us all excited for the full long player. Check back to these pages soon for full album review.
Killer dubplate material from radiokillaz who rework Skrillex and Damien Marley’s chart topping track from last year into a floor filling 140 stomper. Originally created for their Bonfire Mix which aired on Annie Nightingales show on BBC Radio 1.
