Sunday Crunk - Ivy Lab - Critical Music

Two of the scene ‘can-do-no-wrongers’ switch tracks and meet in the remixed middle to create the 'Mef:Lab EP'. ‘Sunday Crunk’ is laid back and techy with hollowed out sounds and sudden and abrupt mad bursts of energy. Check the flip too, sick EP.

Blazin - Styles P feat Blazin - NA

Tasty licks, Hendrix-style funk, space-age wibbles, supremely funky board-work from Cookin Soul — pop it in your bag and let the shrimping commence. 

Jeheez - Fliptrix - High Focus Records

The High Focus rampage cannot be stopped. One of my personal faves from Flip's brilliant 'Polyhmnia' set, the wonder of 'Jeheez' doesn't rest on Molotov attempting to do everything with the sound, just picking those elements that work, that unsettle you a little, that have you leaning in to hear more clearly, and then setting them off together like some kind of bewitching permanent-motion machine. You stare and stare, you can pull out the individual components but it still seems to glide with a magic life all its own. Flip's customarily absorbing vocals help massively too. Find this, enjoy it, then wind yourself back and get the album. One of the UK's most majorly underrated talents. 

Wiggle EP - Jimmy Le Mac - Punks

Jimmy Le Mac ploughs a gorgeously doom-laden vibe that brings to mind recent releases from Bristol's Archive or New York's Doctor Jeep. My personal favourite on the four-tracker is 'Bungle', a furrow-browed percussive number featuring a wicked sample of Idris Elba's Stringer Bell from The Wire: "I'm just a Gangster I s'pose". The Melbourne-based producer backs it up with 'Wiggle', based round a hip-hop vocal refrain, doom-laden sub and meandering synthwork, an atmospheric rave-fuelled roller titled 'Played', and the slick dystopian sci-fi vibe of 'Bowers Rave'. Absolutely essential if you like your beats intense and claustrophobic.
