Boddika & Joy O – Swims (Swamp 81) This one has been floating around as a set rip on YouTube since March 2011, and has had many a comment asking for a proposed release date. In true 'Swamp 81' style they neglected to volunteer this information and the wait went on. However it looks like our long vigil may be coming to an end as Boddika has just uploaded 'Swims' to his Soundcloud account, suggesting a fairly imminent release.

Eats Everything – Eats Everything EP (Dirtybird) For us Dirtybird has always been one of those labels you diligently check their every release, and pretty much find yourself playing one of their tracks where ever you are. However for a little while (Justin Martin - Mr Spock aside) we were beginning to un-consciously turn our gaze elsewhere. The tracks didn’t seem to have the same impact or relevance as they once did and their seemed to be quite a few remix packages. The production was always top notch and it wasn’t like the tracks were awful they just lacked that Whistler, La Conga, Rocket Surgery, Vocal Chords, Spock type sparkle. It ...

WeAreBBB EP37 Mixed Waifs & Strays In partnership with the 'Nest' we are co-sharing this exclusive mixtape by the Waifs & Strays. The Waifs & Strays are yet another example of the growing significance of Bristol on global club culture. Like the preeminent Julio Bashmore before them they have a deep passion for House and consequently this is a smooth groove laden mix that melds looped vocal, chicago pianos, and hand claps into a 4x4 delight. If you are new to the Waifs & Strays check their "Body Shiver" release on Jamie Jones Hot Creations Label (Out Now) - Waifs & Strays - Body Shiver. You can also catch ... Read more / Preview track

Will Saul (Aus Music) – Fabric Mix 2011 Whilst scouring the net earlier this week we came across this 63m 22secs of mixing perfection by 'Aus Music' owner Will Saul. Will Saul is an artist who started out as progressive house was going through its final death throws and the likes of Get Physical were picking up the slack. At that time you had two emerging genres beginning to vie for supremacy. On the one side you had the noisy indie electro sound and on the other the cleaner stripped back techy house sound. Around 04/05 these two sounds had considerable cross over with certain tracks helping propel both genre's in their ... Read more / Preview track

Maurice Donovan – Call My Name (White) Maurice Donovan aka Pearson Sound has just dropped this little house beauty on a limited vinyl only release. It would appear that Phonica have the scoop on this one, so if you're hoping to bag a copy I'd get in quick. 'Call My Name' epitomizes everything that is good in the re-surgence of House, infectious looping vocal, 808 snares and claps, french touch style filtering and sub laden bass. Expect to hear this one being spun by anyone who can get his or her hands on it, including us. Listen and Buy - Maurice Donovan - Call My Name Related Post Maurice Donovan - Babeh/Satisfied ...

Massive Attack & Burial – Four Walls / Paradise Circus On October 17, Inhale Gold and the Vinyl Factory will release a limited edition, two-track 12" collaboration between Massive Attack and Burial. One of the cuts, "Paradise Circus", is a rework of a track off Massive Attack's 2010 LP Heligoland, and the second, "Four Walls", is a brand new recording. The 12 inch can be ordered via Massive Attacks website. Four Walls is an epic 12 minute cinematic piece that is unmistakably Burial meets Massive Attack, with Teardrop type beats and Street Halo atmospheric vocals and crackles. However unlike these two tracks the tempo is somewhat faltering, ... Read more / Preview track
