TCTS – Lose Control

Fellow Mancunion and Greco- Roman signee TCTS has always played to his softer aspects with signature vocal chops and misty apertures. Lose Control rarely ventures away  from his norm but it’s nevertheless matched with crisp, pristine production.   TCTS Soundcloud Facebook Twitter

Shift K3y – Touch

Signed to Columbia records, it’s no surprise that the outcome of this record has leaned towards a charty kind of release, nevertheless, Shift K3y’s abilities to manipulate bass has only worked in his favour, bringing subtle underground elements to a table that so many are jumping on at the...

Redlight ft Lotti – 36

Finally! Some new Redlight material, taking a hit on the commercial scene, the Bristolian has somewhat lost that underground following he spent so long to build. His regular Rinse FM Podcasts still show him in the aforementioned light, but his productions, sadly, do not. Yes, the vocals are catchy...

Fwdslxsh – 4 U

This dubstep / trap influenced track from London based artist, Fwdslxsh (fuck knows how you say it) is exceptional. Great production value and it does its job- catchy, simple and evocative. Cool graphics too. https://soundcloud.com/fwdslxsh/4-u   Fwdslxsh Soundcloud Facebook Twitter      

Citizen – Climax EP

In typical ambient fashion the long- dreaded house producer first took my attention with his So Submissive EP on MadTech. Relaying emotion into his music with flashy snares and simple yet devastatingly simple vocal chops, his profile has grown into one of the most prolific producers on the scene....

Interview : Endor

We interviewed up and coming house producer – Endor. We’ve featured his music a few times on our website so we thought we’d ask the Londoner a few questions. The cheeky Southerner came out with some interesting answers. He first hit our radar a few months ago with Out...

One Bit – Cold

This artist is about to blow right up! Debut record Cold has already been played on BBC Introducing, and with no surprise. Burying established producers with a strong production value, Cold simulates a commercial pop record whilst attaching an underground vibe. Keep an eye on One Bit, you’re likely to hear more from...

Night & Day Threatened With Closure

It’s beyond me to think that someone has moved next door to a bar/club then complains about the sound; where’s the logic in that? Sign the petition to help save such an iconic live music venue in Manchester! ”We are extremely upset and distressed by the notice as we...

Destiny’s Child – Jumpin’ Jumpin’ (Jean Tonique Remix)

I’m a sucker for anything featuring Destiny’s Child, and this Jean Tonique remix is no exception.  The Frenchman drops the tempo, adds a sprinkle of funk and puts in the oven for Beyonce and co to fire it up. https://soundcloud.com/jeantonique/destinys-child-jumpin-jumpin   JEAN TONIQUE Listen on Soundcloud Like on Facebook...

Mix Of The Week 006 – Friend Within

2 hours of edits/remixes/originals from Friend Within. The Liverpudlian lays down a sterling mix as one of the BBC Future Stars. Bass heavy, groovy and full of unreleased material – its one of the best mixes I’ve heard in a long time. https://soundcloud.com/maxmuzik/essential-mix-2014-01-11-friend-within   FRIEND WITHIN Listen on Soundcloud...

Sankeys LDN Opening

Sankeys are to open its doors to the Big Smoke (London) on March 15th. Having closed Sankeys in Manchester due to ‘financial’ problems in May 2013, it seemed as though the famous clubbing brand was finally coming to an end. In a what we can only assume as a...

XO – Old School

XO is quickly rising up the ranks of the electronic world and is an artist that we are tipping for big things this year. The bed of synths in this track starkly remind us of Applebottom whereas the use of those vocals scream Friend Within’s The Renegade. To be heralded in...
