OK first up is the upcoming stuff we’re excited about and it doesnt come any more hotly anticipated than Blowfish by Chimpo. A serious riddim. Its a dancefloor track with a nod to the original raves whilst staying dancehall. The most exciting cut I’ve heard this year. Yeah its only 20 days in so what? its release 005 from the solid Estate Recordings camp and it drops on the 30th January. Check it, bag it, play it, bodypop to it. Featured on this weeks Robot Bodypop show. Ruff!
Next up is the forthcoming release on Ingredients Records.
The label had a solid year in 2011 and continue the pressure with Ingredients 025 from Krakota.
Side A serves up ‘Scraper’. Coming with the punchy snares and deep subs this track is as infectious as much as it is a reminder of the finer years of the neuro-jungle made popular by Ed Rush & Optical.
‘Tunnel Vision’ on the flip offers up a rich D&B roller that builds and skips through some smooth synths which has been on rotation all week at the Robot Bodypop.
Catch the freebie by Krakota; Be Myself VIP on his Soundcloud also featured on this weeks show. Out on the 23rd of January. Don’t sleep.
On the freebie tip there’s a nice varied selection of gratis music in this weeks show – And we are pleased to present it all here for your downloading enjoyment. Big respect goes out to all the artists for their collective generosity.
First up, mancunian Pále steps back into the frame with this techy roller named Ruckus.
As mentioned on this weeks podcast, The Weeknd‘s free album has been making waves since last November with it’s unique blend of sweet harmonies, haunting instrumentals and dark lyrical content. Essential listening. Download from their website here.
Hailing from the North West Borough (where? we’re confused) Sangam crafts hauntingly deep music with future garage overtones. This mysterious and well crafted EP is a generous giveaway.
