DJ Obsolete – Chasin’ It feat. Blabbermouf

#NewMusic from Cologne, Germany

That beat! If we were MCs (and we’re definitely not!) the beat from ‘Chasin’ It’ by DJ Obsolete is the kind of back drop we would sacrifice fingers for. Tough, tight, packed with energy. Blabbermouf does the honours on the mic and absolutely delivers with his crisp, elocuently delivered lines.

Dena – Imaginary Friends

#NewMusic from Berlin, Germany

Get yourself a simple synth chord riff and loop it over a punchy 95 bpm beat. Echo that riff in the bass line. Add some spice with effects and percussion flourishes. Mix and match underneath the vocal. Result – ludicrously infectious low fi pop. That’s exactly what Dena has done on ‘Imaginary Friends’. Great work!

Mala – Changes (SubMarine Bootleg)

#NewMusic from Cologne, Germany

We flipping love a cheeky bootleg, especially when they’re on a drum & bass tip. We have fond, fond memories of our good friend Barnaby J. Spigel‘s devastating remix of Roots Manuva ‘Witness (1 Hope)’ back in 2004.

But we’re here to talk about another belter that’s recently caught our ears, this time courtesy of Cologne based producer SubMarine. He’s worked his magic on Mala’s classic ‘Changes’ and given it a dark D&B twist. Check it.

Mala ‘Changes (SubMarine Bootleg)’ is available to download now.

GRIP TIGHT – Get To Know (feat. KBY)

#NewMusic from Berlin, Germany

Something reflective from the musical project of English producer and vocalist Benjamin Gregory aka GRIP TIGHT with his new track ‘Get To Know’. The track features a vocal appearance from KBY, singer in indie-rock band Peggy Sue and member of all female collective Deep Throat Choir. The slow electronic drum rhythm and synth swells are almost hypnotic. We’re definitely hooked.

GRIP TIGHT ‘Get To Know’ is out now on Musclemilk Records.
