LET'S GO OUTSIDE

Diynamic announces alternative residency at Cova Santa
Cowboy Town - Sole Intent - Lossless Music

This dark and brooding track has a callous and twisted, menacing vibe. Doing its rounds on the dub circuit for a while, it’s finally time to be fully unleashed to the world. Jungle drum patterns and distant fog horns.

'What's Happening Brother?' - MARVIN GAYE - Motown

"If there's one thing I listen to more than anything else it's probably Marvin Gaye's 'What's Going On?'. Every artist dreams of creating a body of work like this, it's the closest thing to perfection, and I never get tired of its genius."

C Landing - Glaue - Sunset Melodies

How often do you hear a club record that summons genuine euphoria? It’s what trance producers are constantly striving for, though Glaue catches lightning in a bottle here with ‘C Landing’. It all comes down to its epic two-minute breakdown, which he’s cleverly chosen to spotlight by placing it in the opening of the record. It eventually builds to a drop that establishes it as a mainroom melodic anthem, and the exhilaration levels are kept in the red for the duration.

Estate - Mella Dee - Omena

Tasty and tough three-tracker from one half of Mista Men, now very much striking out on his own. Raw, no-frills dutty house music for those raggedy dances where you don’t mind a few spilt pints on your crispy creps and where you’ll enjoy the aroma of a cheeky biffter wafting through the air. Check 'Warehouse' for its flashes of grime simplicity and hypnotic roll.
