BEHIND THE SCENE: SWITCH SOUTHAMPTON

An old theatre turning on Southampton? DJ Mag flicks on the light...
Abattoir - Kahn - Deep Medi

Like an archetypal dubstep blueprint, Kahn has managed to craft two tracks which simultaneously transports you back to Mass, DMZ in early 2006 in a fog of weed smoke and Foreign Export swagger, whilst still feeling totally relevant in 2015. The sound has almost been waiting these past nine years for everyone else to come full circle to appreciate its broad influences, open mindedness and discerning palate. Superb.

Tek Nuh Chat - Sam Binga feat Redders - Critical Music

After testing the waters on sister label Modulations earlier in 2014, Bristol boy Sam Binga once again requests the pleasure of the talented Redders for your musical enjoyment. A solid release from camp Kasra: dark, industrial and with a slow-moving, pounding bassline, paired with its ragga vocal from Redders ‘Tek Nuh Chat’ comprises of all the elements required to make this a dancefloor smasher. Fans of the old school should also check out ‘Chasin’' from the same EP, that bass!

Kachiri EP - Daniele Baldelli & DJ Rocca - Nein Records

Requiring little intro to the disco obsessives amongst you, the legend of the era’s ‘afro cosmic’ sound, Daniele Baldelli, strikes up a tight partnership with DJ Rocca on this tidy EP release. Keeping to a familiar mid-tempo throughout, the ‘Kachiri EP’ takes cues from new beat, EBM and minimal-wave with an extra modern production touch to cope with current club demands. A chugging mix from Tronik Youth is included to complete another solid release for the label.

Feelin' High - Jason Laidback - Nightprowl

London-based producer Jason Laidback is best known as one half of funky breakbeat heroes Slyde. Here he takes a fresh look at the broken beat template and delivers a killer blast of washed-out synthwork, perfectly sculpted low-end and spiky percussive cool, all topped off with a wicked little Erykah Badu sample. This is the second release on Laidback's new Nightprowl label, and on this evidence we could be looking at a spawning ground for upfront, forward-thinking breakbeats to rival the Stanton Warriors' reborn Punks imprint.
