The Independent Music Cup is back for its fifth year later this month, with 32 teams from across the music industry gearing up to compete to raise money for War Child.
The football tournament, founded and run by Ninja Tune (who will naturally be fielding a team), will see representatives from the likes of Warp Records, NTS, Boiler Room and ourselves here at DJ Mag, amongst many others, battling it out on the pitch all day on Saturday, July 27th.
Honey Dijon has remixed ‘Stanley’s Get Down (No Parking on the DF)’, taken from Jayda G’s debut album ‘Significant Changes’.
Incoming via Ninja Tune on 19th July, Honey Dijon puts a driving, acid-tinged twist on the dreamy disco original as part of the 'Significant Changes (Remixes)' EP. The EP also features a "Re-Freak" remix of 'Move To The Front' from Dâm-Funk and DJ Fett Burger's take on ‘Missy Knows What's Up’.
Minimal Violence have shared another track from their forthcoming debut LP on Ninja Tune’s Technicolour imprint, ‘InDreams’.
‘June Anthem’ is an absolutely mad hardcore cut that represents the duo of Ashlee Luk and Lida P’s raw, punk approach to club music and rave forms perfectly. Check it out below.
“‘June Anthem’ best captures the raw energy of our live sets,” the duo explain. “Thrash, dance, head-bang or whatever, it's a ball of pure energy.”
A new London club series, No ID, aims to spotlight South Asian DJs and artists, kicking off with a Wednesday night offering at Rye Wax on 27th March.

Minimal Violence have signed to Ninja Tune sub-label Technicolour for their debut album, 'InDreams'.
The duo have taken influence from early industrial music and cyberpunk literature, setting out their hardware-centric sound across nine tracks. The title track can be heard below. It takes its name from a fictional dystopian corporation called 'InDreams inc.'
The album's release on April 26th follows on from the release of their 12" 'MVX / U41A', which also arrived via Technicolour last year. Past releases from the duo have come via labels such as Lobster Theremin and 1080p.
Octo Octa will release her new EP, ‘For Lovers’, via Ninja Tune’s Technicolour imprint on 1st March.

Jayda G will release her debut album, ‘Significant Changes’, via Ninja Tune on 22nd March.
The album will land a month after she finishes up her four-week Phonox residency, and will feature nine original cuts of her joyous and off-kilter brand house, disco and funk.
Nina Kraviz has remixed Marie Davidson’s 'Workaholic Paranoid Bitch'. You can listen to it below.

Helena Hauff has dropped two new tracks from her forthcoming album, 'Qualm', which arrives next Friday, 3rd August, via Ninja Tune.
The Hamburg-based electro and techno DJ and producer has shared 'Hyper-Intelligent Genetically Enriched Cyborg' and 'It Was All Fields Around Here When I Was A Kid'. These follow tasters of 'Qualm' and 'Qualms', which we got our hands on in June, both of which also feature on the new record— her first full-length outing in almost three years.
Helena Hauff has confirmed her new album, 'Qualm', will be released on 3rd August through Ninja Tune.
We first reported on news of an email between the Hamburg-based producer and DJ and the label last week, in which she described the work as 'raw', since going on to state via press release that her intention is to "create something powerful without using too many instruments and layers". It's her first album since 2015's 'Discreet Desires'.
