Big Narstie – BDL Skank

Big Narstie drops the video to his future Grime anthem ‘BDL Skank’ where he gets things tropical. Watch the lively video where Narstie himself shows you how to do the dance. Big Narstie also launched his ‘Base Invaders’ game on Friday where it headed straight to No.1 in the app charts.

Double S – Yana Darg

Double S represents Grime in a perfect way capturing it’s spirit and true form, and his new track ‘Yana Darg’ is an example of this. Produced by The Heavytrackerz, Double S spits over a thundering beat like an experienced mic controller that he is.

Safone – Heard Of

Safone goes in hard with his new track ‘Heard Of’ where we see him at a car impound. His skippy flow complements the pace of the beat well, as he talks about how he has Grime that “No one else ain’t heard of…”

Jammz ft Scott Garcia – It’s A London Thing

Scott Garcia released ‘It’s A London Thing’ back in 1997 with MC Styles, and has sampled it for his tune of the same name with Jammz. The bass heavy production lends way for Jammz to spit his commentary about London, whilst the video gives a outlook of some different scenarios.

Toddla T Meets Andrea Martin ft. Silkki Wonda – Always

Toddla T warms up our autumn with this bittersweet brand new track, now with the accompanying video for “Always”. To launch his Steeze label, he teams up with Andrea Martin an R&B icon who is responsible for writing many R&B classics such as En Vogue’s ‘Don’t Let Go’ and Silkki Wonda who brings the patois, making this a chilled out reggae tune.

Coco – Target Practice

Renowned Sheffield Grime artist Coco drops a fresh, new track “Target Practice” with production from another Sheffield native and legendary BBC Radio 1 and 1Xtra DJ Toddla T. Coco really shines on this track as he goes in hard with his bars with straight fire and no hooks over a dark, sub heavy instrumental. Watch out for him as he has started to become on tastemakers radars and is one to watch.

Ivy lab – Focus

Ahead of their Fabric appearance, Ivy Lab drop “Focus” as a free download. The London trio of prolific D&B producers give us a treat with this track for a dancefloor filler, velvet roller that has both harsh and smooth elements too it. It has an emotive depth to it too. If you like what you hear make sure you head down to catch them in EC1.

Fekky ft Skepta – Way Too Much

It’s been around a year since Fekky and Skepta linked up for a collaboration for a remix. Now they join forces again for Fekky’s brand new single “Way Too Much” where Boy Better Know’s Skepta provides the hook and a verse over the minimal production, allowing the lyrics to take center stage. This is UK music at it’s best, with road rap and Grime joining for a banging track. Fekky’s album El Clasico will be dropping soon too.

 

Youngs Teflon – Run DMC

South London MC Youngs Teflon returns with “Run DMC” bringing the Summer vibes with his video. The instrumental has a melancholic, ethereal feel with Tefs dropping some truthful, hard-hitting bars.

MTV The Wrap Up: Global Gathering 2014 [Review]

Global Gathering returned to the pretty, historical town of Stratford-upon-Avon to bring us the best in electronic music in two days of partying. The festival has been going for 13 years now, and each year festival goers can listen to 12 hours per day of music, this is definitely for the hardcore ravers.

Main stage acts included the legendary Andy C who literally played tune after tune on his hour long set on the Saturday, keeping the drum & bass ravers exceptionally happy. Jaguar Skills brought his mixing skill to the table blending hip-hop, funk, dub, drum & bass and everything in between. Major Look warmed up the sitting down crowd nicely with his early 1pm set getting everyone up. Annie Mac also smashed the main set in pure dance style that only she can do. Netsky was a firm favourite of mine on the Friday and Chase & Status who headlined on Friday completely smashed it with their light effects and music.

Apart from the main stage the UKF tent, Hospitality and 1Xtra tent was where I spent most of my time. Wilkinson played to a rammed UKF tent with an exceptional set playing well-known tracks such as ‘Afterglow’ and ‘Too Close’. Friction also played a standout set as always but unfortunately no special guests were present. I also caught a bit of Matrix & Futurebound and Digital Soundboy’s Shy FX who played a pure class set of jungle and drum & bass.

Hospitality set up on the Saturday too and I ventured over various times to watch and listen to the sounds of High ContrastSigma and Camo & Krooked. Sigma played their single which has taken over the airways ‘Nobody To Love’ getting the crowd singing along to every word, and showcased some other great tunes. Welsh drum & bass producer and DJ High Contrast played a fantastic set to a highly lively and energetic crowd for an hour.

I also managed to catch a bit of Toddla T and Mungos Hifi over at Ram Jam. Overall the festival was one of my favourites of the year so far, full of energy and a great crowd, and managed to keep me up on my feet dancing for pretty much the whole time. See you there next year!

B.Traits – ‘Fever’ (Toddla T & DJ Q remix)

The first lady of Digital Soundboy, B.Traits, teams up with legendary vocalist Elisabeth Troy for Fever, her debut single release, out 25th March on Digital Soundboy Recordings.

In a male dominated scene B.Traits AKA Canadian Brianna Price, is one girl who can more than hold her own with the likes of labelmates Breakage, Redlight and label boss Shy FX. Since moving to the UK she’s been stealing the show at Digital Soundboy’s parties and now she taking over the studio too, ripping up the rulebook as she goes.

Her debut single Fever makes no apologies for what it is, a sure fire party starter that tips its snapback cap to those classic rave and garage anthems of the past whilst still sounding utterly fresh for 2012.

Featuring the vocals of UK Garage royalty, Elisabeth Troy, who appeared on MJ Cole’s biggest hits, ‘Fever’ perfectly showcases the talent that grabbed Shy FX’s attention, capturing the energy of B’s live shows and showing just why she’s become an integral member of Digital Soundboy’s inner circle.
