Regal Records returns maintaining the ethos of promoting fresh dance music from up and coming producers. This cut, the ninth release so far, sees South London’s Dub Motion at the controls with ‘Lucifer’ and ‘Red Stripe’. Two serious tunes which have already been gaining appreciation on the dancefloor and both tracks featured on the recent S.P.Y. Hospital podcast. Theres plenty of support in the scene too from the likes of Logistics, Cyantific, London Elektricity, Nu:Tone & Random Concept. Each track leans towards the darker side of D&B but each showing that Dub Motionhas a great deal to offer the scene.
Boka Records one again making sure they are on the very cusp of whats new with their release ‘Big What’ which features Parisian Niveau Zero on production alongside his fellow countrymen, duo Tambour Battant.
The title track builds with some funked out filter action while some deep vocals guide you in before breaking down into a monster of a tune. Heavy production here from this trio. Perfect dancefloor smasher whilst also being a riddim that makes your head bounce when it comes through your home speakers or headphones.
The flip sees duo Matta on remix duties and they take all the original vibes and break them up into a smooth deep roller. Amazing work from these two once again.
Those folks at the Fat! Club have done it again! To celebrate 3 years at London’s premium night club Cable they are putting on a line up of head wiping proportions on Friday the 15th of this month. Including sets from Robot Bodypop favourites Reso and Hostage, plus a Bare Noise set featuring the formidable vocal skills of Stig Of The Dump this is guaranteed to go off. Plus they aren’t turfing out until 6am so you don’t have to worry about missing the last train – Just make sure you bring your bass face!

Texas based imprint Warm Communications latest cut is a double header from London based Fracture. Label boss Heath is keen to keep the label diverse whilst pushing some of the finest producers around in Seba, Equinox and Resound to name a few and the new release from Fracture sits perfectly in their catalogue. Both tracks feature on this weeks Robot Bodypop show.
Up first its a sweet remix of Ella Jones’ ‘Lately’ which builds with nice vibes and a track here just in time for the summer.
On the flip the mood is darker with ‘Tunnel Track’ and it’s refreshing to hear D&B sounding this good again. Haunting pads with solid beats gets the head nodding and the feet moving.
Out on May 14th and both cuts perfect for the dancefloor or home. Or on the bus. Or toilet…………you get the idea.
LDZ aka London Zoo starts off the giveaway this week with beat maestro Sumgii with the Daddy McFree EP. Peep the preview then bag the full thing at Blocsonic. It’s mint.
Next up is the Radio Los Santos free EP from Habstrakt and Badjokes featuring the cut featured on this weeks show remixed by War & Mateba.
Following on, the man Compa gave up this Bjork remix as a thank you for 1000 Twitter followers. Can’t go wrong with the mental Icelander on vocal duties because frankly, she’s awesome. Couple that with Compas midas touch. Love it.
