For all those of you snowed in at the moment or simply can't move cos you stuffed yourselves too much over Christmas, here's a bumper blog post of new music that should see your speakers through to the new year in fine style.
First up, if you haven't picked up a copy of the Stagga single 'Genik Riddim' yet, get involved! The track featuring Skamma & Joe Blow from Squid Ninjaz is beastly and the release carries killer remixes from Starkey, Distal and HavocNdeed. Not for the faint hearted though, this is definitely on the grimier side. Here's a copy of the Starkey Remix (Radio Version just in case you want to play it to your mum or jam it on the airwaves).

Next up is a fresh bootie from our boy Parker. as expected he's smashed it again with a beefed up Glitch hop take on a funk / soul club classic. Shall definitely be jamming this on New Years Eve this year. You can pick up a whole album of remixed classics (including this one) by registering over at Ghetto Funk.
Aretha Franklin - Rock Steady (Parker Remix) by DJ Parker
Central Spillz shall be dropping their long awaited album 'Space Travel' next month. Everything we've heard from it so far is great and to celebrate they're giving away the original version of their rowdy calling card track 'What Ya Know About'.

Been jamming the remix and 'tribute' version of Cassie's 'Skydiver' album hard recently and didn't even realise it's been given away as a free download. Some incredible Future Garage, Post-step, Glitch hop type remixes from the likes of Brackles, Altered Native and The Blessings. Pick up the whole album here or grab a little taster from Lunice and 8Bitch below.

We've posted a couple of Kill Light tracks up here before but pretty sure we haven't put this one up yet. It's from their new EP on Black Butter Records and is a great fusion of deep tribal Future Garage vibes and more jump up Funky-esque flavours. Also if you haven't got the Rack N Ruin download from Black Butter yet, grab it here and check out their 'Skanker Riddim' below.

Foreign Beggars have been killing it this year and their Dented Records label continues to drop top quslity Hip-hop from their extended family also. The latest release is the Brainstorm Mixtape from LDZ (London Zoo) and is probably the best from the crew yet. To be honest we generally check for the guest spots which as always here includes dope spitters such as Dubbledge and Stig but this stands up the whole way through despite being rather too lengthy at 24 tracks.

Bossasaurus have been on our radar for a while but they have just dropped their first official album and by jove I think they've got it. Thoughtful journeys off the beaten track, epic journeys in space and funk excursions into the future. An all round winner for any fans of Glitch hop, Future Boogie or Instrumental Beats in general and all for free from their Bandcamp page.

Some straight up Psycho-step on this Thrills remix from the first release off their new Be Bonkerz label.

Back on the laid back and broody vibe, it's been a while since we heard from Inaudible but he's back with this dope double headed Glitch hop / Dubstep release on Bandcamp, which is rather openly entitled 'Feed Me Your Email'. Seems a small price to pay but if you're really not down with joining any kind of mailing list at all then hit him up on Soundcloud and he'll pass you a link anyway.
Download: Inaudible - Carnival
We also got the latest Thugstep mash up from DJ Nappy courtesy of those good fellas over at Rock The Dub.

Ghetts has been feeling kinda festive and dropped a new free EP for Grime Daily. You can pick up the whole thing there but here's our choice cut.

And finally Philly rapper Gilbere Forte drops a little something over N.E.R.D.'s 'God Bless Us All'
