It's here. Big Boi the rapper with the greatest swagger comes up with the goods in the video for Shutterbug. Great song, greater ringtone.

Mix tape madness.

at 16:06
Thought it would be important to share these new mix tapes as they are both uniquely awesome.

1) A-trak - Dirty South Dance 2

The sequel to Dirty South Dance (2007) A-trak showcases his mixing skills. Blending house and electro with hip hop is no mean feat and A-trak pulls it off flawlessly. Unique takes on Wile Out and How Low Can You Go really stand out. This is available for FREE so snap it up now!

How Low Can You Bake - A-trak

2) Major Lazer & La Roux - Lazerproof

Recorded in Kingston, Major Lazer bring their unique sound to La Roux's album. Guest featuring Gucci Mane, Drake, Rusko its a 50 minute ride of tasty dubplates and dancehall inspired bliss. You can download it FREE, all you need is your postcode. Apparently 200,000 tried to download it when it was released and crashed the Mad Decent website. Damn!

Mad Sax

Guido's debut album is out on Punch Drunk - in a word, it's wicked

Classic tunes like Orchestral Lab and Cat in the Window work really well with the rest of the material. But stand out for me has to be this piece of sleazy sax work over spaceage synths and a grimey subbass.

I recently stumbled over this magical song from Hickup, released on the Dirtybird label. It has all the essence of a killer Detroit house song with its snippets of cow bells, bird sounds and varied drum pattern.

To coincide with this, I would recommend purchasing 5 Years of Dirtybird. It's jam packed with all the classics, current and future hits that the Dirtybird label have released. Pick it up here: Beatport

Distant Relatives.

Monday, 24 May 2010 at 23:01

For most university students, right about now is exam time. Two to three weeks of stress, anxiety and tension as exams roll in and students realise how little work they have done! Normally I like to work in silence with no distractions in the background, yet recently I have found a little gem in the form of Damien Marley. Already big on the reggae scene, (as a multi award winning grammy star) my knowledge of one of the Marley sons was previously limited. What caught my attention was his upcoming collaboration album with Nas, 'Distant Relatives'. The hype in America for this record is huge and it lives up to its expectations. Two of the biggest stars in their respected fields coming together should be nothing short of great. The album flows beautifully with tracks 'As I Enter' and 'Nah Mean' standing out alongside my personal favourite 'Africa Must Wake Up'. Buy it now from Amazon.

A little taster:


New Mustard Pimp Madness!

Easy. Got some new french hotsauce for you, from the RER boys Mustard Pimp.

The way I'm describing this one is electromeetssupernintendomeetsthrashmetal.

So basically, it's retroelectrocore. You can quote me on that

The sun is shining. Jeuce apparently knew this was gonna happen cause they've just (I'm talking 53 mins ago) sent us this hot potato.

Summer sunset vibes with this one.
