- Chase & Status - Retreat 2018 ft Cutty Ranks / Heater ft General Levy
I was over the moon when Chase & Status dropped two brand new tunes on us a few weeks ago and also announced new album RTRNIIJUNGLE. A massive return to form as I have not been a huge fan of some of the musical diversions they have taken over last couple of years but they have always been a class act when performing live. The hype is real!
- The Upbeats & Noisia - 'Long Shadows' ft Goth-Trad & DJ Kentaro
The second track to drop from their upcoming EP. Featuring Tokyo's dubstep producer Goth-Trad and former world DMC champ Kentaro. With help from Creative New Zealand and a Kickstarter campaign, they went to Japan and Iceland to write the first EP of the ‘No Sleep ’Til’ series. There are 7 songs on the EP, featuring collaborations with Noisia, Culture Shock,Halogenix, DJ Kentaro, Goth Trad, and Emperor.
- State Of Mind - Land Of The Blind Part II
Continuing their fascination with reptilians, this Friday State Of Mind drop part 2 of the album Land Of The Blind. Here's a sneak peak to the lead track. Also listen out to George FM Drive as the deeper more jungle inspired track "Preset 42" features as this weeks biggest drum & bass tune.
