JME released his long-awaited new album last week, “Grime MC”, the follow-up to 2015’s “Integrity”. But here’s the catch, it’s only available on physical formats (CD/Vinyl). A nice way of saying “fuck you” to the dominion of digital streaming sites and also a nice gesture to the followers of roots, old fashioned ways of things (especially when it comes to the underground music scene) & physical formats like us. He relies on his fans and the scene to spread the word, which we’ll definitely do without a second thought. You can grab the album from Boy Better Know’s website or your favorite retailer. Big ups JME!
Mick Harris was making dubstep before dubstep even existed. He was said to be the inventor of the “blast beat” when he was in the legendary grindcore band Napalm Death as their drummer. Now, he released a new record with his Scorn project after 9 years of silence. Again, his sound is dark, deep, tough, and heavy as fuck, pushing the limits between bass, industrial, and dub.
Pinch is one of my fav dubstep producers since his 2006 Planet Mu release, Qawwali. Now he teamed up with Kahn and KILLA P and his Army to mix dubstep, grime, and dancehall to deliver us the year 4000 style banger. Don’t sleep on this, TectonicRecordings only pressed 500 copies.
Wanna hear what a BANGER sounds like? This! Big ups Snow667 & Jason Williamson (Sleaford Mods)!!
The world’s fucked innit?

Sheffield is famous for three things; the steel industry, football clubs (both Sheffield Wednesday and Sheffield United are two unique clubs with a passionate following in English football system) and Warp Records. It’s been 30 years since Warp Records appeared on the 7 hills of Sheffield to give us the most beautiful music that’s ever created by the hands and minds of the younglings of the UK. Now, to celebrate this, they released a boxset of 10×12″ records. We have Peel Sessions (highlights of the boxset) from Aphex Twin, Plaid, LFO, Boards Of Canada, and Seefeel, and the rest is from various Warp musicians’ radio sessions.
Information about Behringer’s new analog synth TD-03 leaked for some time. It’s a Roland TB-303 clone and expected to drop tomorrow (11/08). It’s like a fairy tale for suckers for “acid sound” like us, especially when Roland is behaving like proper assholes for many years (not listening to the fans, releasing toys, and promoting them as improvements and the new edition of legendary synths). Anyways, even if it sounds like a fairy tale when you think about the years of reputation that is built on the synths, mixers, or any kinda crappy instrument that Behringer built, I highly suspect they are going to give us decent clone or even a decent analog synth. Still, we keep up the faith!
Lewis James’ Exit Records UK debut EP is on the way, featuring collaborations with Alia Fresco, DBridge, and Lorn. Will be out on 15th November.
This November, Hyperdub Records will drop the debut album of Doon Kanda (aka Jesse Kanda). He is also known as a visual artist and directed music videos for FKA Twigs, Bjork, and Arca. Don’t wanna talk more before listening to the full album but seems like it’s gonna be big. In the meantime, if you didn’t hear his previous EPs (Heart and Luna both released by Hyperdub) go and check them.
