WeAreBlahBlahBlah – Left Ive been debating whether to post this on our own blog for a few weeks now as it seems a little self indulgent, however some trusted allies recommended I did as they think it deserves a post....(their words, not mine). So here it is, WeAreBlahBlahBlah - Left is our first ever self penned production after 6 months of intensive You Tube tutorial training. Left is a bit of a builder so make sure you dont miss the breaks and try and avoid laptop speakers if you can. I should also say a big thank you to Pelski and James Kendall at Source Magazine who both featured our track in their respective ... Read more / Preview track

Classixx Feat. Karl Dixon – Into The Valley (Julio Bashmore Remix) Julio Bashmore has been on a bit of a roll of late, what with the amazing 'Everybody Needs a Theme Tune' and 'Batty Knee Dance' EPs, and now he has produced another classic with his remix of Classixx's - Into the Valley. Bashmore takes the original tracks lead male vocal, strips it from its electro synth pop surroundings before building it into what can only be described as a Classic House track. The vocal takes on a totally different quality from the original as Bashmore expertly introduces layer after layer of House nostalgia before taking the track to another level with the subtle ...

Sigha – Sigha EP (Hotflush Recordings) Sigha aka James Shaw is a London based Techno producer who we have been aware of for quite a while, however it wasn’t until we heard his 'Fold' track on last months Hotflush Recordings 'Back And 4th' Compilation that his sound truly started to resonate with us. Fold twisted his more reserved echo’y Techno formula into a slightly more dance floor focused direction with crisper beats and percussion, and its this approach that takes the fore in his soon be released self titled Sigha EP. We also recommend his 'I Am Apathy, I Am Submission' EP, recently released on Blueprint. Sigha - ... Read more / Preview track

The lead track 'Bear Hug' is our recommended pick, however all 4 tracks are worth a listen and are all ... Read more / Preview track

Deadboy – Wish U Were Here After a long and fruitless day of sifting through emails, scouring Soundcloud and various other portals of new music Id almost given up hope of finding anything worth talking about....until a chance Beatport encounter. Deadboy is not someone we have talked about before, although we have been aware of him since the excellent 'If You Want Me' was released on Numbers in 2010. Well he's back on Numbers again and this time he has served up a 3 track EP featuring the instantly gratifying disco tinged houser 'Wish U Were Here' alongside two less immediate but by no means inferior underground bass ...

Alpines – Ice and Arrows (Dark Sky Remix) Dark Sky have been gathering quite a head of steam in recent months and this latest remix is simply a stunning piece of heartfelt downtempo that is sure to propel them yet further into the Electronic elite.
