Black Roses - uMaNg - Ill Adrenaline

Been addicted to that Ill Adrenaline, this year and they just keep hitting you with the juice. 'Black Roses' is a dark, despairing track featuring BBZ Darney and Epidemic, a track underproduced to a nicely ruff and rugged grain, the backing (piano, bass, strings) as evocative as Ornette and mystical as Mingus, the rhymes spilling over mathematical restrictions, spilling beyond the amount of bars you expect, refusing to stop linking up with the lines that precede them, a colossal tangle of ideas you can't unpick. Superb, harsh, fascinating music. I want to hear more from uMaNg soon. 

The Acid House Handshake - Don Froth - WNCL

From the get go, Don Froth’s latest drop for WNCL makes you smile — and how! Using his spoken word sample to prepare you for a feast of differing approaches and styles, Froth’s command is what proves exceptional, especially when making a rolling feature of his clipped, delayed kick drum in the middle of ‘Body X JD’, or rolling out the infectious conga line on ‘Live Notes’. There may be a lot to digest here, but it’s so worth it.

Coyote Kings Vol. 2 - Various - Coyote

Finishing 2014 the way they finished 2013, Coyote Records have united for a second compilation instalment that features another 10 exclusive productions from the reverent talent crop of instrumental grime producers it repeatedly plunders. Enlisting blossoming names like Yamaneko, Strict Face and Chemist’ll ensure that the collection piques a lot of dudes' interest, but the real joy of it is in discovering assertive bits like Famous Eno’s ‘Puzzlebox Riddim’ or Rejig’s positively baltic ‘Ice Xungle.’

Cultural Variance EP - DJ Bone - Leftroom

Metroplex legend DJ Bone, aka Eric Dulan, has been embracing the new generation in recent years, with collabs turning up with the likes of Deetron and the Hessle Audio crew. Now he's unleashing this incendiary two-tracker for Matt Tolfrey's Leftroom as it approaches its 10th year in the business. 'Cultural Variance' is frisky — well, perhaps a bit more than frisky — and wildly percussive, a twisted Afro vocal running through. 'Faze', meanwhile, is slamming, delay-heavy, with a hint of disco. Hey it's techno, really, but just pitch it down a tad and bob's your uncle.
