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.
Any fan of the Robot Bodypop show quickly realises this is a mouth-watering line-up for us. Alongside Kryptic Minds, Just Skank bring the mighty DJ Madd, Dub Phizix, Killawatt and the rising Compa. A serious line up staged at the Moho Live venue. Theres a second room featuring upcoming talent and the hosts for the night come in the form of Broke ‘n’ English wordsmith Strategy, GNI MC and Sin Seer. I hear Compa is going to be there selling whites of ‘Dem A Talk’ so be sure to get in early and corner him. Really looking forward to this one and it promises to be as diverse as it does upfront. Big up Just Skank for this
MAIN ROOM : Void Sound Sytem
► KRYPTIC MINDS
► DJ MADD
► DUB PHIZIX FT STRATEGY
► DJ FRED
Chances are if you’ve seen D-Bridge playing out recently you will have caught this deep number forthcoming on his Exit Records label and its arguably one of the tracks of the year. Absolutely storming. Production is held down by Mancunian soundboy Dub Phizix alongside Skeptical with Broke’N’English mic-man Strategy with a killer flow unlike anything you’ve heard in his previous work. It’s out on 19th December and all pre-orders of the vinyl version have already been snapped up! Check out the video filmed in and around Manchester and bag yourself a copy. On the flip is a track on a similar vibe named ‘Rags’. Incredible stuff.
