Review: Mella Dee – Feel It Out EP [Sccucci Manucci]

Posted in Features Tracks by on Apr 7, 2014

In all honesty, I overlooked this release when it first came through our promo box. I have nothing against Mella Dee or the Sccucci family – actually I have the utmost respect for their originality. After linking Mella Dee’s name with the absolute monster track, “MOAT” on Sccucci’s 8th compilation (listen below), I suppose I was expecting something large to come from...

Journeyman – Spend it All

Posted in Features Tracks by on Mar 28, 2014

Over here, we love Anjunadeep. They seem to do an incredible job finding, and cultivating some of the most unknown and up and coming producers. Today we get to hear from Journeyman. The two made themselves known in 2013 with a breakthrough remix of a drum and bass record. Now we get to see them put together a full EP titled “Spend it All”.  Here we have the title track from that EP...

Oli Furness – 4 For the Floor EP [Music Is Love Records]

Posted in Tracks by on Mar 7, 2014

Oli Furness has patiently plotted and watched his label, Music Is Love Records, blossom through it’s first 7 releases over the past couple years. It’s safe to say, in that time, Music Is Love has set the bar high for contemporary underground house labels coming out of the UK. In particular, the precedent and aim of each release is a sense of completeness. I can’t say this about...

Jackson Ryland – Semper & Solum Podcast

Posted in Playlists by on Dec 13, 2013

I could draw this out, but none of us would enjoy it. The guys at Semper & Solum invited me for an hour long session on their podcast airwaves. You may have (or I guess odds are you haven’t) seen their youtube channel, which features a bevvy of uploads in the deep, underground and rare Western European house market. Infer this as a straightforward endorsement – check out the...

Producers on the Rise: JACK FELL DOWN

Posted in Tracks by on Sep 9, 2013

For this week’s segment London, yet again, is our focal point. More directly, Jack Fell Down are two producers who do it different. They are the second duo from the Sccucci Manucci family to be feature on this segment, so if you’d like to draw any parallels or conspiracies, there’s your chance. I first came across these two around April 2013 with an upcoming release on that same...

CITIZEN – BBC 1Xtra Mix (MadTech Records)

Posted in Playlists by on Sep 5, 2013

Soulful, druggy and actually original – all marks of a stellar career thus far for London’s Citizen.  He represented MadTech the other day for a BBC 1Xtra mix that takes a hard left turn to 90s nostalgia. I’m not talking bout contemporary house tracks that imitate the 90s sound, I’m talkin bout legit 90s boner jams. Tracks you remember and sing along with a gleam in your...
