Dirty-D - Feelin' Moody EP [NexGen Music]

New Release – Dirty-D – Feelin’ Moody EP

Dirty-D is a disciple of the breakbeat and doesn’t care who knows, and they get suitably shredded on his latest release on his own NexGen Music label, Feelin’ Moody.

Dirty-D is just one of label boss D.A’s production monikers and the man is known for his love of all things underground but particularly music from the breakbeat rave era.

The four-track EP combines some fairly soft rave flavoured synths with chaotic drums on the title track before getting progressively grittier as the record wears on, going out on the filthy tear-out double-hit of ‘Radial Exposure’ and ‘Choppin’ It’. That’s not to say this is one-dimensional jump-up – there’s a depth and a certain classiness to parts of these tracks which is channeled into an entire tune in the shape of the classic-sounding ’Do You Love Me?’ which conjures a vintage Ed Rush and Optical vibe.

It’s no surprise that the record has a genuine old-school taste to it – it’s put together using unfinished bits from as far back as the late 90’s, buffed up to today’s standards.

Sinistarr, Kiat, Kabuki, Homesick - Rogue Style 1 EP

New Release – Sinistarr, Kiat, Kabuki, Homesick – Rogue Style 1 EP

Four acclaimed producers from across the globe have joined forces to craft an international homage to b-boy culture, where breakbeat and breakdance collide.

With tracks from Sinistarr (USA), Kiat (Singapore), Kabuki (Germany) and HomeSick (Canada), the Rogue Style 1 EP shows how shared hip-hop roots can blossom into very different beasts – Kiat’s ‘It’s Yours’, featuring Klose, is a feisty drum & bass cut while elsewhere heavyweight footwork is the order of the day.

For all four producers this is a particularly special project, with b-boy culture close to all of their hearts. Sinistarr said: “As a teenager I grew up as a b-boy, dancing anywhere I could: schools, parks, festivals, you name it, my crew was there with cardboard and a speaker.”

Kiat said: “Hip Hop has taught me to keep evolving, to explore new forms in all my art. Progression is the key to evolution.”

Kabuki said: “B-boy culture has always been a strong influence on how I pursued my art, mainly because of its DIY ethos and attitude of perfecting your craft. Incidentally these were also the aspects that drew me to Jungle when I first discovered it in the nineties.”

Homesick said: “I was only a child in the 90s and as a result I feel like my understanding of b-boy culture was experienced second hand thanks to 90s/early 2000s hip hop music. I appreciate the parallels I can see with footwork culture, particularly the similarities to the community mentality of break dancing.”

The record is out now on Leipzig-based label Defrostatica Records – pick it up at www.defrostatica.bandcamp.com and listen here.

Ragga Twins – Who Inspired You?

Before we dip our toe into the ocean of Ragga Twins tales and influence on the widest possible realms of modern music, let us put things simply: The Ragga Twins are THE voice of dancefloor music. And have been for several generations…

Reggae to rave, jazz to dubstep, breaks, hardcore, jungle, drum & bass, house and everything in between… Flinty Badman and Deman Rockers have applied their vocal damage and party charm to every scene and style worth raving to.

Shows on every continent, over 1000 recordings, fans from Rio Ferdinand to Lilly Allen: From soundtracking a documentary on Margaret Thatcher to supporting Shabba Ranks and James Brown to working with Skrillex, The Ragga Twins’ inimitable, impossible-to-replicate style and tight balance of conscious and vibey lyricism is alluring, infectious and hype-boosted. Just as it has been since two young ragamuffins cut their teeth on London’s reggae soundsystem culture in 1982

‘Who Inspired You?’ is a retrospective across 2 full length albums, of some of the high times The Ragga Twins have shared with Aquasky & Passenger records.
Longtime collaborators with Aquasky, the Twins have had over 20 releases, features and collaborations with Passenger spanning 15 years.

RNF013: PYRAMID vs Colombo – Tension [Ruff N Fresh Records]

Here we are again with what is surely going to be one of the biggest breaks releases of 2015! These two acts really don’t need introducing. You know them by their seriously killer reputations throughout the scene.
Pyramid and Colombo are bringing the serious fire with this release. A silky vocal and inspired guitar line will take you to fantastic highs as the tension builds and drops into a mammothly huge and groovy baseline that will not fail to get everyone going crazy on the dance floor. With an amalgamation of both Colombo and Pyramids signature sounds and style this track does not fail to disappoint.
This tune needs to be in your sets and killing dance floors as soon as possible. Turn those speakers up loud and enjoy!
