Flying solo once again with the new format it’s myself Killian selecting from a mixed bag this week. Deep vibes throughout and even taking a small HipHop excursion with Snakehips, Gummy Soul & Fresh as I’ve recently discovered Bandcamp is an absolute goldmine for concept albums from indie producers.
There some deep dub in there, most notably a free track from Djinn, thats a wicked remix of a Numan track so check for that. Some roots vibes in there too from Egoless and Matta checks in with a remix of French producers Niveau Zero & Tambour Battant. Dark and moody vibes from Kode 9 vs Badwai and to fend of the dark theres glorious tracks from our best kept secret, Londy as well as rising talen Es.Tereo. New D&B vibes from Breaks Symmetry label make this show as varied as it’s ever been. Get keen and listen in.

Things She Say – Londy
Den Of Drumz – Kode 9 vs Badwai
Secrets (Djinn RMX) – Numan
Before Dub – Egoless

Londy – Distant Love

Big fans of young Jamaican producer Londy. An incredible work rate and consistently throwing up quality tracks at at varying BPMs, he’s featured heavily on the Robot Bodypop. The latest EP, Distant Love.can be bagged via his Soundcloud page and all 4 cuts are lush. From the beautiful half step ‘Night’ with Ted Ganung to the rolling ‘Treat Her Good’ its a solid 4 track EP. Love these vibes. Fresh and uplifting. Don’t stall. And as the man himself says:

I’m always making love songs… and i blame this one special girl that lives many many many miles away from me! This EP is dedicated to all the Distant Lovers out there! Big Up ~Londy

So we’re back for 2012 with another diverse selection of upfront future beats. Being a new year it’s time for some changes – The main one being the switch to a fortnightly drop from here on out – Doing a weekly show often leaves us with little time for much else – Hopefully we can focus more on quality of content rather than rushing to get a show done. We also want to bring in more exclusives, guest mixes and interviews for 2012 so keep a look out. Be assured that the blog will be updated weekly as ever to keep you in tune with current releases and events – don’t neglect to bookmark!

Todays podcast features cuts from the likes of BondaxBlynkBiomeBreroBoot, and a whole heap of other great producers whose names don’t begin with a ‘b’. Freebies include tracks from PaleWeeknd, Ghostek, Killawatt, DJ Craze and Sangam.

Enjoy.
