Loz Contreras – The Nicked Technics EP

17 02 2015

We got some sad news earlier this week – liquid producer Loz Contreras was the unfortunate victim of theft outside his flat in Leeds, and has had his Technics 1210s and mixer stolen from the boot of his car. His flatmate has started an appeal to raise the cash to buy new equipment for Loz, and the man himself has generously offered to give away an EP of his hottest dubs to anyone kind enough to chip in. If you’re looking for uplifting liquid rollers it doesn’t get much better than the tracks on offer here, so check the clips below and head to the GoFundMe page and sling Loz some cash.

RQ – Shimmer / Traces [Blu Mar Ten Music]

9 02 2015

Blu Mar Ten Music kick of 2015 with a great new release from Kiwi producer RQ. Shimmer combines soft piano, deft atmospherics and interesting natural percussion for a sublime slice of melodic electronica; think Liquid meets Autonomic and you’re halfway there, though that lazy journalistic shorthand doesn’t really do the tune justice.

Traces provides a worthy flipside, harnessing the spirit of golden era GLR/Intelligent D&B with more lush synth work. The entire first half builds the suspense before the classic breaks kick in for the second half providing that ever vibrant contrast between soft, melodic elements and tough, distorted amens. Deeper beats as usual from the BMTM camp – check out the clips below and grab the release from your favourite digital outlet now!





Mako, Villem & McLeod – Inner Revolution [Utopia Music]

14 01 2015

The Utopia family return with a silky smooth liquid roller from bossman Mako alongside familiar partner in crime Villem and his erstwhile sidekick McLeod. Inner Revolution is pure bliss! Over on the flip Villem & McLeod go in deeper, swapping the uptempo breaks for a downtempo half-time beat but retaining the lush synth work and soulful vocals of the A side. Musicality and feeling all the way on this one. Hit up Redeye to grab this on vinyl right now, with digital release to follow very soon.





Clairvoyance Vol. 1 [Rush Records]

11 01 2015

There’s plenty to enjoy here, with highlights coming on the deep, understated melodies of Monrroe’s Elation, Altered Perception & Imprint’s melancholy Heartbeats and the unusual, autonomic-esque riddims of Solo’s Sun. Check out the clips below and head to your favourite digital store to grab this one now!

Today’s classic track is in itself a remix of a classic track, as we take a look at Total Science’s rerub of Doc Scott’s ’92 raver’s favourite NHS. Taking the crunchy breaks and memorable piano of the original but bringing the tempo up and adding some of that Total Science flavour, this one is pure summer fun.

10 12 2014

Tasty stuff! Check out the clips below and look for this one from December 15th.
