The Motive EP - M.I.K.E. - Coldharbour Recordings

Triple-pack EP from M.I.K.E. on his first outing for Coldharbour. Packing in some great analogue sub-riffs at its front end, 'The Motive' ups the echo on its lead and even gets a bit of electro squelch into the bargain. Carrying a hint of synthy '80s Moroder-ism in its break, 'Spacesuit' frays, distorts and FXs its lead line with equal drama. 'Mass Freedom' is the most classically M.I.K.E. of the three, with some cool melodies, no small degree of 303 and a right whacker of a payoff. 

By A Thread (Hybrid Minds Remix) - Mediks - AudioPorn Records

Like a satisfying soup on an icy winter's day, this is a drop of heart-warming liquid that will surely thaw even lovers of the darkest, coldest drum & bass. Calming, sweet and emotional vocals stitch the track together with gently plucked strings providing the core melody. Crashing cymbals and a graceful drum pattern implement the percussion. Both Mediks and Hybrid Minds are turning the heads of the scene's most influential tastemakers, so this is not an EP to be missed. 

Dope Rider (General Narco Remix) - B-Side feat Kymberley Kennedy - Ghetto Funk

The ghetto funk original is spiced up by General Narco, who orders plenty of hyper-kinetic beats and sends a bad-ass b-line out to battle with the feelgood vocals of Kymberley Kennedy. This General is set to be a major force in beats, bass and breaks.

Hold Me - Cooly G - Hyperdub

A dancefloor directed three-tracker here from one of South London’s finest beatmakers, with a track featuring the effervescent Scratch DVA called 'Oi Dirty', a rolling bass-heavy number with flighty percussion and grime inflections. Title track 'Hold Me' features Cooly’s own vocals with a simple lyrical refrain, but fast-forward to' Molly', which builds nicely with decayed chords and tech flourishes.
