Nicaragua - Drumsound & Bassline Smith - Technique Recordings

While waiting for their telegram Drumsound & Bassline Smith celebrate their turn of the century by releasing Tech 100, 'Nicaragua'. Plucking elements from their experience of the scene since the '90s, the track is a mix of underground and mainstream, which blends nicely to create a metaphor to symbolise their own personal journey to today's position in the scene. The entire EP needs to be listened to, but finale track 'Neighbourhood' is something quite special.

Analog X - Silver Man - 3 Bar Fire

Downtempo, sample-based cinematica from one time Tru Thoughts signing Silver Man, who offers up a taster from his forthcoming album ‘Thieves and Millionaires’. 

The Motive EP - M.I.K.E. - Coldharbour Recordings

Triple-pack EP from M.I.K.E. on his first outing for Coldharbour. Packing in some great analogue sub-riffs at its front end, 'The Motive' ups the echo on its lead and even gets a bit of electro squelch into the bargain. Carrying a hint of synthy '80s Moroder-ism in its break, 'Spacesuit' frays, distorts and FXs its lead line with equal drama. 'Mass Freedom' is the most classically M.I.K.E. of the three, with some cool melodies, no small degree of 303 and a right whacker of a payoff. 

If Loving U Is Wrong, I Don’t Want To Be Wrong - Lockah - Donky Pitch

In a weird way ‘If Loving U Is Wrong...’ is exactly the type of thing you’d expect from an artist who’s gearing up for an album release: it ably shows a diversity from his previous material, whilst cementing a very certain production sheen that he’s made his own. ‘Ayyo Tricknology’ is again wantonly different, even from the A-side, asking a few not-so-subtle questions of the direction of that forthcoming long-player.
