With releases on RunDNB, Audio Tactics and most notably Renegade Hardware and Dispatch Recordings, Octane & DLR are set to drop their long player on the 10th September on Dispatch Recordings. Pushing the limits with their cross-genre vibes has gained them huge support from their peers. Regular radio play comes as a result, as the sound they have spent the last 12 months meticulously carving is ridiculously fresh. The album features mouth watering collabos from Break, Cern and EBK as well as guest vocalists and MC’s Fokus, Kemo, Gusto and Marion.
To whet your appetite catch this preview mix as its absolute FIRE! Just when you thought you’d heard it all before.

Big fans of Diffrent Records here at the Robot Bodypop, mostly because each release genuinely stirs something inside leaving us tapping our fingers, nodding our heads or grimacing in pure audio bliss.
The newest plate from the label due out on the 3rd September and Fathom Audio take control for a double A side. Comprising of members Billion, Sense, Codebreaker & Fybe, they keep the vibe deep but the tight production keeps the listener keen.
‘Promises’ eases you in before the stabs of neuro bass carve out the track perfectly with smooth cuts and vocals interweaving.
‘Ridges’ kicks off with a brief invitiation to fly then hits you with a gnarly drum pattern which filters perfectly between elegant and choppy. Love it.
Just a few tracks for free this week but they are varied, solid and more importantly legal because thats how we roll on the Robot Bodypop show. Digging out the freebies so you don’t have to.
First up is a deep dubstep track from young Accrington based Epoxy named ‘Cut Off’. Clean production and fierce sounds make this a must-have. Bag it from the Autopsy Audio Soundcloud page and there’s plenty of other free cuts on there too. Indulge.
Next up is another example of why Bandcamp is a badman source for music both free and paid. ‘Sun For Days’ by Fetch features on this weeks Robot Bodypop show and comes part of a 5 track E.P entitled The Formula Vol.1. Summer vibes going on with some slick guitar hooks. Lovely warm riddim. You can bag it for free but it’s nice to chuck these guys even just a quid for their trouble. Do it. Do it now. All 5 cuts are dope.
This is one spectacular live show – If this guy drops into your town you would be a complete moron of a fool to miss out. Well, he was in London last November and we were totally unawares – So imagine how we must feel. Just look at it. 😦
We can only hope that there is a Manchester date in the offing some day soon. Badness!!
