Today We Is Mostly Listening To.,..

The latest podcast from seminal Bass, Glitch and Beats show Electronic Explorations has one of our current favourite crews in for a guest mix and it is HUGE. With all the (deserved) hype surrounding Glasgow - Akira Kiteshi are holding it down for the Scottish capital of Edinburgh with some of the phattest and most phucked up tracks around. Their mix includes some of their own exclusives plus sounds from the likes of Rustie, Starkey and Bassnectar... Get the full track listing and live stream here.

New York rapper Elucid just leaked us a dangerous Kode 9 remix from his forthcoming Sub Bass Diet E.P. Just picked up some killer tracks off his Myspace page too so gonna post some choice cuts up once we've given them a proper rinsing.

Also out of New York, Sub Swara set the scene for their forthcoming Sub City Sessions at Le Poisson Rouge on April 24th (w/ The Glitch Mob, Lazer Sword, Sub Swara & Ana Sia) with the latest edition of the Sub Swara Podcast on iTunes. Definitely worth subscribing if you haven't already.

You might have noticed this track near the top of our recent chart, The Last Skeptic has smashed it once again with this Dubstep meets Hip-hop remix of leftfield pop starlet Marina And The Diamonds. Look out for more Skeptic remixes from Daniel Merriweather, Get Cape Wear Cape Fly, Mongrel (which we featured recently), The Game, Eslam Jawaad, Joe Budden and Lowkey which will be included in a remix album later in the year.

Loving the new Gouseion EP on Run Riot but nobody does their releases verbal justice more than the label themselves...

"Gouseion back on the missile-test range with More Friends For The Fire, a razors-open titanium jigsaw puzzle EP. Applying more pressure to the squared off rhythms of RRR avantclub, MFFTF takes the compressions of modern electro saws and the dizzy, sweeping drops of hyphy into physically treacherous arenas."

Mary Anne Hobbs didn't make it in to do her show this week as she got stuck on a broken down train, but it did give a great opportunity to catch up on some of the mixes we've missed in the past from: Nosaj Thing, Mono/Poly; Hyetal; Ras G; Ben Klock and Appleblim @ Bloc. Can still listen again on the BBC iPlayer for the next few days.

Regular readers to the blog should know about Troublemaker by now, but the first time we caught him was on a remix of Camp Lo's Luchini alongside fellow Hollyrock co-hort Tatelarock, know they bring double trouble once more to De La Soul's classic Oooh, a timewarping fusion of Hip-hop eras that takes the focus off the floor and turns it into a subtle Electro stepper.

Also taking it back whilst keeping that future flavour is this track from JDP, which has a similar feel to fellow Chi-Townites The Cool Kids. Guest vocals come from Swedish rapper Adam Tensta, who also featured on the Troublemaker remix of Nothing To Worry About which we posted up the other day (see the linkage working here).
