Upswing Project – Raw Grooves EP

Upswing Project - Raw Grooves EP

Buy This EP

Love classic rolling US style Garage? Well, you’re gonna love this EP by Upswing Project on Hustler Trax. We’re not talking dusty vinyls from the 90s here (not that there’s anything wrong with them!). No, we’re talking about 4 chilled, melodic, and soulful grooves lovingly crafted in the 92-96 era Garage sound.

In fact, Upswing Project is an alias for the talented House music/aficionado, Alex Agore. Alex spoils us here with some purist dubby Garage rhythms that will bring a huge smile to your face

Our Favourite Track:

‘Raw Groove Four’, A nice chunky Garage tune that would fit perfectly in a Karl ‘Tuff Enuf’ brown DJ set

Strictly NuSkool Blog’s Glowkid At Old Skool Festival 2016 (Interview)

gk_1

 

Our good friend Glowkid DJ’ed at This year’s Old Skool Festival in Lodz, Poland. You can read the interview where he talks about the event and some of his favourite tunes and artist right now over at Strictly NuSkool Blog.

A few highlights from the interview:

Favourite Event:

Definitely that was Old Skool Festival 2016. None of us can ever forget our first gig or any other big gig that you are involved with in the past, but I’d say without any second thought that Old Skool Festival is my biggest gig and booking at the moment till the next bigger thing of course!

Favourite Oldskool Artists:

Hard to say but I’d pick without any particular order, Luna-C (crazy ideas, innovative stylee), Altern-8 (apart from the EPs & remixes they were kinda Sex Pistols in the scene. One and only official album release but their “Full on Mask Hysteria” is still a Bible to us all and showed the way to the others) and finally Moby (nothing can beat his 1990 – mid 90’s oldskool techno stuff. Genius of an artist by all means!)

Favourite Oldskool Tunes:

“Rachel Wallace – Tell Me Why”
“Jimmy J & Cru-L-T – Six Days On The Run”
“Westbam – Celebration Generation”

Current Favourite Hardcore/NuSkool Breaks Tracks:

“Paul Cronin – Kim K‘ Boobs Out [RAVESKOOL]”

“DJCRIP – Rock Me Steady”

“Insane & Mind – Open Up Your Heart [HOH]”

RIDO Rhythm Of Life LP [Blackout]

rido-rhythm-of-life-lp-blackout

Buy This LP
Blackout continue their global search for the next “everyman” DnB producer and  in Rido they’ve found an absolute gem. Friction has picked up on “Fade Away”, battering it on his BBC Radio 1 show, and many other DnB luminaries are jumping on
the Rido train for good reason.
Having cut his teeth on a number of high-profile labels such as Subtitles, Viper, Hospital and Metalheadz to name a few, Rido’s stock is set to rise stratospherically with this well-constructed and honestly- conceived long player, “Rhythm Of Life”.

 

The origin of the word Rido comes from clan conflict in the Philippines, and whether or not that was the inspiration behind the moniker, the sentiment is strong and true across this debut album offering. Packed full of tough beats and scintillating basslines punctuated with vocal excerpts is a delight for and assault on the senses in equal measure.
Reflective, personal, intelligent – these are all words we can easily associate with the Czech DJ as he effortlessly zips from one high-octane dance floor killer to another. Whether it’s the rave-inspired, euphoric sound of “Thursday Funk” or the straight up and down toughness of “Movin”, there’s a little something for everyone inside

Beat Assassins- War Dem ft Miss Stylie (With Trei Remix) [Mofo Recordings]

beat-assassins-war-dem

Trei just dropped a MASSIVE remix of crossover Grime/DnB track ‘War Dem’ by Beat Assassins Ft Miss Stylie.

We’re sure Miss Stylie won’t mind the comparisons to Ms Dynamite/Mz Brat as are very evident in her smooth delivery of bars and her great singing voice.

Production wise, Beat Assassins fuel the fiyah bars with their signature energetic and tight canvas of melodic bass stabbage

As for this remix, it’s straight out of the blocks, loaded with an MMA glove of funky bass and stepping beats. This will light you up from the opening beats!!!

BEATPORT EXCLUSIVE on 3rd Oct / Release to all major digital stores on 14th Oct
