Problems - Homeboy Sandman - Stones Throw Records

"I'm surrounded by hipsters / What does that say about me? / Hipsters love independent movies / Shit, I love independent movies / Actually, I just like independent movies / So I think I'm cool there" — amusing, broken-up and horizontal slice of first-world anxiety from HS and Stones Throw. New album 'Hallways' due soon. Don't sleep. 

Whip It EP - Pelikann - Bear Fresh

This is brooding Swamp 81-style broken beat bass music, 21-year-old Derbyshire producer Jack Mackmersh dropping booming bass, cool percussion and a pitched-down rap vocal refrain over complex, intelligent drum work on lead track 'Whip It', then following up with the equally darkcore-flavoured rudeboy alt-grime of 'Crater Face VIP'. This free EP on Bear Fresh seems to improve at every listen, a rare achievement. 

Original Pirate Sound - Radiokillaz - Rkz Recordings

Prolific London duo Radiokillaz ramp up the old skool flavours once again here, throwing junglistic breakbeats, dystopian synthwork, hardcore stabs and snatches of pitched-up ragga vocal over heavy kicks and snares for a track that's full of dubwise rave energy. On the remix, Pressa adds clipped keys and heavily-delayed brass stabs, while Galvatron grabs an Amen and furiously freewheels for a reworking that heads into full-on 170bpm d&b territory. 

 

#WUT - Hard Driver - Hard With Style

Hard Driver has been tipped for the very top by the likes of Coone and Headhunterz. With his infectious productions featuring catchy melodies and fresh, accessible, raw drops we can certainly see why. This next single from him has a hands-in-the-air glide melody and subtle vocal building up and dropping, with some seriously heavy kicks and time-stretched stabs.
