It’s that time of the month once again.
We take a look at 5 incredible releases from the second half of April that we can’t stop listening to, ranging from Breaks, Jungle, UKG, Grime & more.
Crank up the volume and enjoy.
AMY DABBS & COCO BRYCE – SLIGHTLY INVOLVED VOL. 1
Amy Dabbs & Coco Bryce, two artists at the top of their game right now, combine for their collaboration project Slightly Involved. The first volume sees each producer rework the other’s previously released tracks with altered (and humourous) track titles. Each artist’s individual style shines through here, creating a wonderful release and also interest to see what’s in store with future volumes. Buy/listen.
CHIMPO – ON THE DIAL
UK D&B & Jungle royalty Chimpo makes his debut on Astrophonica with his new EP On The Dial. The Manchester-based artist slots in perfectly within the London-based label’s roster with a truly accomplished body of work, providing a fascinating insight into his take on the Jungle sound he grew up listening to, right up there with his best work to date. Buy/listen.
SP:MC – INSIDE LOOKING OUT / ALL NIGHT
MC, producer & label owner SP:MC, serves up the latest release on his own Declassified Records label. Falling in line with the previous two releases on the imprint, it’s a huge & heavy two-track weapon from the man himself, packed with swing 2-step rhythms, deep dark basslines and an atmosphere thick enough to cut with a knife Buy/listen.
VARIOUS ARTISTS – TRILOGY VOL. 3
Mean Streets Records present the third volume of their Trilogy series, a massive 10 track Various Artists compilation featuring familiar faces from the label, Grime legends & 140 dons such as D.O.K, Boylan, Ironsoul, P Jam and many more including label owner Trends. This one’s also available on a limited 4 track vinyl sampler. Listen / Buy.
THUGWIDOW – CONTAIN YOURSELF
Thugwidow has established his name over the last few years as one of the most exciting & interesting producers making Jungle & high tempo electronic music and his new release is further proof of that. Entitled Contain Yourself, it’s a 3 track EP which twists, bends and contorts with its mind-bending breaks & bass combinations in a way that it seems only Thugwidow knows how. Buy/listen.
