Bill Sykes – Dirty Old Man | TNC

Mancunian Bill Sykes stars as a filth-infested geriatric pest in this wickedly creepy new video. Eschewing Hip Hop in it’s purest form, this head nodding track is funkier than an unwashed catheter tube with Bill’s lyrical delivery coming grimier than your grandma’s windowsills. Help the aged and support this video!

Get Got (Distinction Remix) – Verbal Contact featuring Lunar C | FREE DOWNLOAD

In preparation for the drop of ‘Blue In The Face’ on the Don’t Talk To Strangers label, West Yorkshire’s lyricists Verbal Contact & Lunar C go back to back on this remix of ‘Get Got’ by London producer Distinction. Snappy 808 percussion and a lethal freq’d out low end make themselves felt. Big vibrations, free to download.

Kid Koala – 12 Bit Blues

This one is a concept album after my own heart. Digging in the crates for old school blues legends like Son House, Vancouver-born Kid Koala combines turntablism and glitched lo-fi production with the lumbering  guitar and piano riffs of the 12 bar blues, creating something epic.

‘The 12 Bit Blues’ is out now on Ninja Tune. He’s also about to begin a world tour featuring dancers, puppets and a huge cardboard gramaphone(?). Playing Manchester UK on the 13th October.

REKchampa – Self Serve EP | Bandcamp

Back with the future funk, REKchampa comes through with another blunted 2step/Hip Hop cross-pollenation. In keeping with the sound that first got our attention with ‘Pocket The Rest’, here we see enhanced production and a consolidation of his distinctive style.

‘Bartender’s Theme’ opens with restless percussion and bar-room atmospheres underscored by deep chords and a sub-oceanic bass line. Bringing it down a notch on the second track, Brea steps in to lend sampled vocals and harmonies to the beautiful instrumentation on ‘Collapsin’.

‘Flit-Flax’ has a skippy beat and a persistent organ melody which rides over shimmering pads as Timbaland-style vocal incursions dip in and out. ‘The Comeback’ has an eski feel to it, with a glacial drum track breaking into pitched down vocals merged with vibrant chord play. The last track ‘Loft’ sees us out with a gloriously detailed 2step beat and trademark pitched percussive vocals.

He’s done it again folks. Self-released at $4 (or more) and worth every penny. A must for any collection. Go and bag that.

Metrodome – Burgerz N Chipz EP | FREE DOWNLOAD

18 year old Ruud Whiting has been a promising up and coming production talent in the Manchester bass scene for some time. We have always known he had it in him, but it has taken until now for his talents to be realised in this, his first ever EP.

Entitled ‘Burgerz & Chipz’, it is intended as a loose homage to the Manchester takeaway establishments which form the staple diets of many a discombobulated club-goer in the scramble for a meat and bread based treat. Gourmet it may not be, but at 4am it might as well be Gordon-fucking-Ramsey.

Staying true to the musicality which has helped set him apart from other producers, this EP contains 11 tracks of bass drenched melody, with influences ranging from blues, rock, dubstep, and hip hop molded to fit his in-your-face yet warm and smooth signature sound. The resultant groove is a funky party vibe, superbly listenable and highly recommended. Pick it up for free right here on mediafire.

Distinction : /mikst#1/ : FREE DOWNLOAD

About a month ago we featured a huge sounding Usher remix  from London based Producer/DJ Distinction. He also recently smashed the main room of the legendary Fabric club at the Dub Police night there at the end of August. It was that set that inspired  the first instalment in a new series of mixes.

/mikst#1/ is what DJing is all about, or should be. We are treated to a wealth of bass exploring early Dubstep stylings, Hip Hop, Grime and Trap beats perfectly melded together in an interesting and varied set, featuring a wide selection of artists from all corners such as Baauer, XXYYXX, Girl Unit, TNGHT, Redlight, Darq E Freaker, Matty G, and Diplo on the playlist.

There’s more to come from Distinction in the near future too:

Having started to experiment outside the confines of any particular genre, Distinction’s recent releases have sided more towards the influence of R&B music on his production, having released his massive ‘Swim Good’ and ‘Climax’ Refix’s, which have received support online from sites like Hypetrak, StupidDOPE and SB.TV amongst others. The tracks have caused quite a stir online & are set to appear on his highly anticipated RVST mixtape, which is to be released in the near future.

Here’s the full /Mixst#1/ mix for free stream and download including full tracklist. Go grab it.
