PREMIERE: FRICTION VS PROLIX ' DARK MOVES'

The third instalment of Friction’s popular EP series, 'Vs Vol.3' bristles with rip-roaring energy and menacing rhythm. Set for release this coming Monday 26th April via Shogun Audio, the next 'Vs' EP sees collaborations with Dimension, Metrik and Ulterior Motive.

NOISIA Q&A + EXCLUSIVE PREMIERE

You could say Noisia have been pretty busy the last couple of years. Two Kraantje Pappie albums, an I Am Legion album and tour, remixes for everyone from Icicle to Katy Perry, as well as production for people like Korn, Hadouken, Dope DOD, Dream Mclean and Wretch 32, plus a plethora of their own releases — and even a video game soundtrack. It's hard to think of any bass music artists with a discography as extensive and impressive as theirs.

MISTAJAM ADDED TO SW4 FEST

Mistajam, BBC Radio 1 and 1Xtra's main man in new dance and urban music, has just been added to the line-up for the 2014 South West Four festival in London this summer.

ANDY C TO HEADLINE NOZSTOCK 2014

Ram Records head honcho Andy C is set to play this year's Nozstock: The Hidden Valley Festival this summer.

Running from August 1st — 3rd, Nozstock will see the drum & bass heavyweight take over the Cubicles stage on the Saturday night, with MC GQ providing lyrical support.

ROCKWELL: HARDCORE PUNK ROCK

I've just asked Thomas Green, aka Rockwell, one of d&b's hottest producers and DJs of 2013, who is No.1 on his wish list of collaborators. He's thinking about it. I ponder which jungle/d&b legend he's going to opt for. 
“Ian Mackaye,” he says. Nods affirmatively. “Definitely. I'm obsessed with Fugazi and Minor Threat. It's my first love in music — hardcore punk, I love Black Flag and Henry Rollins as well — in fact I went to see his spoken word show a few weeks ago. Ian MacKaye I think probably wouldn't be very into the kind of music I'd make so the results would be... interesting. But, yeah, I would love to work with him.”
Of course, such genre-bending surprise should be of NO surprise to anyone who's properly listened to Rockwell.

SHOGUN AUDIO AT SIDINGS WAREHOUSE

Following their sold out party at Great Suffolk Street Warehouse during Easter, the Shogun Audio crew return to London on Saturday 28th September at The Sidings Warehouse.

Linguistics, SP:MC and LX:One are amongst the lyrical controllers for the night and Critical Recording's Mefjus will also be gracing the decks.
