This month Manchester’s Soul:ution returns to Band On The Wall for the second instalment of the bi annual Exit Records residency. With residents including Calibre, Dub Phizix and Marcus Intalex and regular shows across the country Soul:ution is one of drum and bass’ most respected parties. This month sees dBridge, Loxy, Marcus Intalex and DRS taking to the stage.
In the meantime cop a recent mix from Marcus Intalex ft. DRS and Strategy recorded for Austrias La Boum de Luxe, FM4 Radio. Grab is here on Mixcloud or here for a direct download. It’s packed full of badman tracks.
Underground music continues to flourish with the passion of either a solo player or collective group. Its this passion that has gained streaming audio/ visual radio station Project 13 recognition and a following in Manchester and beyond. Going out live from the studio (which also doubles as one of the founders bedrooms) every Wednesday, this group pushes the boundaries of the genres they frequent. Branching out into club nights and now also podcasts its unknown in what direction this collective will head next but they are a solid and reliable choice for bass heavy music. Alongside the residents, recent guests have included Thelem, Guy Richards, Hedmuk, Compa, Biome and Pandemik with many of the shows available on the channels archives. Be sure to check these guys out.
Glaswegian soundboys, Mungos Hi-Fi, return with a more digital outing than previous excursions and with this their third album, its upfront reggae alongside some of the finest vocal talent around. Positive vibes with each track and it sounds more like a party than an LP. A seriously diverse sounding record moving from ska to dubstep whilst maintaining classing backings and a nod to days gone by. Essential listening.
