Future Classic: Munro “BYOG/SIDWIR”

Very nice EP filled with summery vibes courtesy of young London-based producer Munro on the up and coming XVI Records out of Vancouver, Canada. Mid-tempo or Slow Deep House is a tricky thing. For me it’s sometimes very hard to differentiate the tracks that are 9′s and 10′s from the …

UK GARAGE HISTORY & FAMILY TREE: 20 YEARS OF UKG!

Words by: Lexis & Dr.Love Foreword It’s really pretty incredible that after 20 years, the influence of the UK Garage is still very present. From its early incarnations around 1994, British Garage has had a huge impact over urban music in the UK with artists like Dizzee Rascal, Burial, Wiley, The Streets, …

Classic Mixes: Matt Jam Lamont (Tuff Jam) “The Jam Experience 1993 TDK Sessions”

Now here is a real treat for all the house and garage heads out there. This is a really intriguing find actually because it represents the missing link between the US Garage sound and the birth of UK Garage in the mid-90′s. Matt “Jam” Lamont was one of the two …

Mix of the Day: Brackles “Rinse FM Podcast 23rd August 2014″

Absolutely great carnival vibes coming from London’s Brackles recorded live on Rinse FM, everybody’s favourite underground radio station. We were very familiar with Brackles‘ productions always rooted in Bass with Funky drums but we were a little bit less familiar with his DJing. Well this set makes total sense in terms of him …

Forgotten Treasure: Gravediggaz’ “Nowhere to Run” Portishead Remix (1994)

Truly slept-on collaboration in 1994 between Portishead and Gravediggaz, a Wu-Tang affiliated project which was led by the RZA. I was a huge fan of both groups but it was only many years after falling in love with “36 Chambers” and “Dummy” that I discovered this track. Portishead remixes are …

Classic Mixes: DJ Shadow & DJ Krush “Mo’ Wax Tour 1994″

One for the history books!!! 20 year old classic mix from 1-9-9-4… We love live sets from back in the day because we know there is no “cheating” involved. More focus on the music itself, programming and general vibe and a little bit less of technical prowess. Amazing lost session …
