Party people! The mother of diary dates is here, new years eve. Sure there's a ton of stuff happening in London; Ministry of Sound at the O2, Innovation at Fire, Get Loaded in the Dark at Brixton Academy to name a few. However, true mess head recommends this banger - two of London's trendiest promoters in force for a colossal shoreditch raveup. Funktion 1 sound throughout the Basement Club, and with 9 hours of solid noise, it's set to be huge.
Brodinski has had a massive year. Being asked to mix Bugged Out's latest Suck My Deck compilation, collabs with fellow Frenchman Noob, and the huge Eurostar with Mumdance have all helped establish him in the major league.
DJ Mehdi - Pocket Piano (Brodinski Remix) (320) - Brings the sublime piano loop to a driving techno powerhouse
Noob & Brodinski - Peanuts Club (Jake Simon Remix) (320) - Fidget squeaks and electro stabs. Huge.
Boy 8-Bit is firing now as well. Riding with the Mad Decent crew and reworking the likes of La Roux and Florence and the Machine have made him a name known. His Baltic Pine EP (buy it!) has smashed the beatport charts, and the track itself is sure to be dropped. This guy's style is undefinable!
Jack Beats ft. MC Dynamite - What (Boy 8-Bit Remix) (320) This is a true mess head favourite. That bouncing b-line....
Boy 8-Bit - A City Under Seige (320) - Underrated and epic.
Hannah Holland (apparently I was later told....) gave a massive set at Exit and is sure to repeat. Though not a prolific producer, she's been playing for over 8 years and regularly spins 5 hour sets.
V.V. Brown - Crying Blood (Hannah Holland Remix) (128) - Much blogged. When the bass gets its groove on you'll see why...
Mumdance is HUGE first off. Remixing Maximo Park in his emerging 'kerplunk' genre, his sound is wild. Fusing carnival sounds with bouncing drums and big bad bass, and running around dubstep, house and fidget without being tied down, expect anything. The Mad Decent Diplo-esque sound shines through tho.
The Whip - Divebomb (Mumdance Remix) (320) - takes the original glitches and whirrs to a kudoro festival. With whistles. And steel drums.
True Mess Head will see you at the front.
Check it - it's a funky disco slice of fidget bassline. If that makes any sense.
A whole lotta posts coming soon...
Right I've got one classic by Royksopp which has been remixed by about 50 different people but I'm putting up Trentmollers one. Massive massive chuune from back in the day.
The second one is an absolute DnB banger by Austrian quartet Fourward called Blur, from their release DISTURBED019.
The third one is a liquid tune called 7th state of matter by Puzzle. Even tho liquid isn't really my thing I think the track is sick.
Here are the links:
Royksopp - Where is it? (Trentmoller remix) 
Fourward - Blur 
Puzzle - 7th State of matter 
Stay tuned for more tunes

tonight's the night ladies and gents. the biggest drum and bass DJ in the world is coming to exeter and believe me he's gonna rinse the place. headling, ram records head honcho Andy C. supporting is Lomax - i'm expecting big things from him. room 2 is serious business breaks with finger lickin records - A Skillz is in. Also, barry ashworth! legendary collaborator with the ever fresh dub pistols.
this is an absolute ROLLER - tech-funk stylings from the critical album All Sounds Electric.
lomax - come and see (320)
get down early as its a 2am finish (lemon grove is on university campus). true mess head will see you at the front
I was gonna say the best things come in trios but I realised there are two guys in Mustard Pimp. Pshhhh, there are still some sweet things that are 4s....?
4x4 music (aka bassline for my sheffield peeps)
4 people for a double date.
screw it, the point is both of these artists are big in the game. True Mess Head favourites Blatta and Inesha are blowing up Italy and Mustard Pimp are killing everything they touch. I virtually have their fresh prince remix on repeat. So when two tribes go to war...
Mustard Pimp and Blatta & Inesha - Pigeon Flu (320)
enjoy peeps, this is fresh out.
