Freedom Is A Road Seldom Travelled By The Robots


It's been a while since Free The Robots dropped his debut EP onto the world and in that time his contemporaries on the West Coast scene such as Flying Lotus and Nosaj Thing have firmly wedged themselves into our collective psyche. Now finally we have a full length episode of the FTR show and it's certainly been worth the wait.

The name of Chris Alfaro's project is most definitely apt. This is the kind of freedom that Johnny 5 tasted and all those other androids out there have been dreaming of since. The re-education of the robots takes on a history lesson of their portrayal in human culture with tracks like Sci-fidelity, a straight up 50s B Movie robo-invasion over a killer beat which we can’t help but picture Doom tearing up… ripe for the mash up we’d say. The rest takes in everything from 60s Eastern influenced psychadelia to modern crunk, all translated for the knowledge hungry robot's out there, whilst tracks like Voices takes the education further approaching the emotional side of things and teaching them about the relationships between pain and beauty.

Finally as the freestyle nature of The Eye (a collaboration with Mars Volta's Ikey Owens on keys) really highlights the computer as instrument and with the education complete you can almost feel the life force surging through their circuits. The Robots have most definitely been freed.

Ctrl Alt Delete drops via Alpha Pup Records on March 30th.

Beer Loving Robots


Doshy has been passing us some killer crunkesque tech-step recently from his secret lab in Berlin. We're loving his sound at the moment and seems like the feeling may be mututal as our boys Monkey and Stagga are all up in this new mix from him. Check it out and make sure you hunt down releases from his Robox-Neotech label (such as the latest bleeptastic Who Is Hudson River from Zet). This mix is pretty much what he's playing out at the moment but 'without the rewinds'.

Monday Mixtape's Against The Pyjama Ban


Check our latest mix that was originally broadcast on BBC 1Xtra last week. More info and tracklisting below.

Download: Pyjama Ban (BBC 1xtra) Mix

From conception to birth, we have to admit we always feel rather like proud parents when we finish a mix, however with this latest in the series there’s a different kind of family pride. Aside from the obvious patriotism that swells from the fully Welsh line up, the fondness with which we regard out peers and the quality of music they have provided here hits the heart like a sibling football team winning the world cup.

When we were approached by 1Xtra to represent our motherland we were asked if we could possibly include some Welsh tracks. When we told them that we planned for the whole mix to be made up of artists from Wales they were surprised that such a feat was possible. Such misplaced surprise and ignorance is the reason why this mix is so important to us.

Not that we particularly mind being overlooked and mistaken for a nation whose musical output doesn’t stretch far beyond Guitar based Rock and Male Voice Choirs, we’re well used to that by now and our own media have always been more than supportive of the Hip-hop, Dubstep and Drum N Bass scenes here. There is a limit however as to just how much incredible music we can keep to ourselves. Let’s face it, it’s just not fair to the rest of you. So here is a quick fire tour of friends and family, mainly Dubstep with a nod to the Hip-hop and post-Hip-hop output of artists such as Squid Ninjaz and the Associated Minds crew.

The mix is meant as more of a showcase than a straight up seamless blend so keep the tracklisting at hand and make sure you look up the artists you’re feeling the most and if you reckon we’ve missed someone out, then make yourself heard so that we don’t make the same mistake next time.

Thanks for listening and don’t forget, if you’re enjoying it, someone else might too…

Pass it on.

Straight Jukin'


We're not too sure whether they're trying to inject some conscious Hip-hop flavour into Chicago's Juke-house scene, or possibly the other way round... either way it probably hasn't worked too well. However B.B.U. (Bin-laden Blowin' Up) have come up with some fun post-ironic hybrid party music that fits more with the Diplo minded rather than any strict brackets, and with some straight up infectious tracks set to splatter their debut mixtape, Fear Of A Clear Channel Planet (out March 1st)they could well find favour with those kind of scenesters.

Matt Humphries / Diverse Concept - Suspended Dialogue / Broken (Video)

Great new video from Matt Humphries called Suspended Dialogue which uses music from our boy Diverse Concepts. The track B r o k E n is part of the Taking Flight EP that we shall be dropping on 22nd March. The EP will also be something of a collaborative project between the two with each track corresponding to a choice photograph around the concept of flight from Matty's stunning portfolio of work.

DJ Cable Vs. Ludacris & Starkey "How Low, Luv? (THUGSTEP Blend)



It's about time I hit you with another Thugstep blend. You may recognise this one from my January Podcast; imo it worked so well, that I decided to make a full blend out of it. Fully tagged, encoded at 320kbps...Vocals kick in after 32 bars, giving you a chance to mix/double drop properly.

DOWNLOAD: Dirty/ Clean


As the acapella didn't come with a chorus, I had to make one using a section of the first verse.

Kaptin V Moneyshot: Head To Head


I'm greatly looking forwards to next Friday where I'm about to enter a head to head clash with one of the best DJs out there, DJ Moneyshot. Possibly not a name that springs instantly to mind for you guys, especially the straight up Bass heads out there but he's a favourite on Ninja Tunes' Solid Steel radio and before he set off to the land of Oz for a while had a quality show on the now sadly defunct XFM Wales with his long term back to back buddy Parker (it's Moneyshot trying to explain the "state of the zookeeping industry" on Where's My Monkey?).

Although I shall be dipping into many a chrome plated tune the music policy is most likely to be more fun and funk driven (for more serious sets look out for Kaptin Is Dead) with plenty of crate digging and mash ups going on. This selection from DJ Moneyshot should give you some idea on the general vibe, couple have already been getting love from Huw Stephens and Rob Da Bank on BBC Radio 1.

Heart Beats 4 Haiti


There are more reasons than we can be bothered to give you why you should scoot on over to Bandcamp and pick up a copy of dÉbruit's new EP Heart Beats 4 Haiti. Four tracks of the funk strong Frenchman's signature off kilter productions using choice samples from Haitian music at the incredibly fair fee of just £3, all of which goes to UNICEF’s Haiti Earthquake Relief Fund. See there's enough reasons for you right there.

Total Ayobaness


The new school of South African bass heavy party Glitch hop and Dubstep are pretty well represented on these pages but we rarely touch on the House aspect of things except for the occasional riddim ridden by Spoek. Well the scene over there seems to be on fire at the moment as the Kwaito scene gets quieter and the rhythms that are influencing alot of the House and Bass scenes in Europe in many ways could be said to have come full circle. This can be seen in effect throughout this EP from Outhere Records, a German based label with a history of strong African music releases.

We've already told you a little about Ayoba and it's meaning, the spirit of which is captured here by artists like the crazy blinged out man of the cloth Pastor Mbhobho (check the video for his title track) and DJ Mujava whose Township Funk on Warp was one of the biggest club anthems of last year (and the year before come to think of it).

Stream the whole EP at the label's Soundcloud account but here's a taster of the DJ Mujava track. Look out for a full length 13-track compilation due later in the year.

#Musicblogocide2k10


Some of you may have noticed me ranting on Twitter about the DMCA (digital Millenium Copright Act) taking down posts but not making it clear which tracks are supposed to be taken off (so we can argue our case as we've probably had permission for all the tracks taken down). Well it looks like it's not just us and there has been a number of 'Music Blogosides' recently where whole blogs have been taken out of action. Read more here.

We're always excited by any LuckyMe news so when When Mary Anne Hobbs announced that a new band had been added to the family our ears instantly pricked up more than Spock's pet corgi. The track she unleashed from American Men ran like a 4 minute HudMo meets Sigur Rós build up / break down that takes you everywhere and nowhere at the same time. They have dubbed the sound 'Miami Lazer Rock' and here's a copy of the tune courtesy of FACT, as well as a remix of their track AM System by fellow LM sibling Mike Slott (via XLR8R).

F**k Traffic Jams Mixtape Selection

A quadruped of quality mixtapes for you to munch on right now, and right tasty snacks they are too: First up our boy Parker, who has managed to crack smiles from even the most hardcore Dubstep head with his Where's My Monkey bootleg, serves us a slice of what he's delivering to the clubs right now. An eclectic mix which matches up the likes of Nat King Cole, Lethal Bizzle and Subfocus with his own productions, bootlegs and The Beekeepers project (with Boca 45); out of the east is our girl Soulflower sending us over Sub signals from all directions; and our co-conspirator in the bass blog global takeover, Psymbionic from Bwomp Beats lays down some Crunkadelic 'Trip-step' flavours; and finally a different representation of the Haiti we've seen on our televisisons of late, DJ Still Life has compiled some of his favourite Rap Kreyol tracks from the island. These artists obviously need even more support than ever at the moment so if you're feeling it make sure to check out some more from those included.

Dilla & Dynas Hanging Out In The Apartment


The legacy of Dilla will continue beyond for a long time. Not just in the influence he had on the next generation of producers after but, ever prolific we're pretty sure there's still a few hundred unheard Dilla produced tracks floating about out there. Here's the latest in the line from Dynas, it's the new single from his BBE album due in September, which also has production from the likes of DJ Spinna, DJ Jazzy Jeff, and Exile.

Digital Soul Seeking


We've been loving the first release due to drop on One4Ho, a new label from Mai Harper and Sophie Ruston (aka Ghettozoid). The track from Ghettozoid herself is called Seeking and is on some future garage space age flex, carrying some serious sonic depth with a fairly sinister bassline rumbling out out like a school of whales floating through the sonar system, whilst our favourite Bristolian diva Yolanda manages to add both upliftment and melancholoy, as she effortlessly stretches her rich soul vocals to the outer reaches of the universe.

Our favourite mix however is from Blue Daisy with a tripped out excursion, building up a bed of a crisp static crunch and dublike echoes. As if the tune had been dropped into a K hole and managed to float around in it without confusion, paranoia or looking like a complete c**t.

For a bit of a look inside Blue Daisy's head check out his mix for URB that we picked up at Robot Koch's Robots Don't Sleep blog recently.

Crazylegs Making Moves


It has to be said that in general Bristol as a city is pretty much on it for music. When it comes to riding on the edge of excitement however we've always been more than partial to the line ups that Crazylegs produce. Since they started up in September 2008 the likes of Starkey, Joy Orbison, Raffertie, Cooly G and Brackles have all had their names beaming out of the posters at us. Now they've collected a posse of like minded promoters to form a collaboration under the Crazylegs banner. With nights such as UFO, Pollen, Focus and Work on board their hoping to step up even further.

True to expectations, their first outing of the year is right on the button as they overtake Basement 45 with: Ikonika, whose debut album on Hyperdub is easily one of the most eagerly anticipated releases of the year; Pangaea, who has one of the most essential EPs of the moment out now on Hessle Audio; Martin Kemp, who has quickly proven that there's a lot more to him than simply being Brackles younger brother; and Mosca, who kicked off the month well with a Mary Anne Hobbs mix and set an instant high bench mark for the Night Slugs label with his Square One EP.

It's always a tricky tight rope when you're largely breakin' new artists at your night but this is an exciting line up and if anyone can pull it off it's these fellas we reckon.

Superturbo Charged Tunes


We love the fact that Superturbo have decided to appropriate a Hanson video for their track Время кромсает as it pretty much highlights everything they aren't. One is cheesy, chirpy, American pop whilst the other is edgy, emotional, Russian Glitch hop. We first caught them on Mary Anne Hobbs show last week and although it's tricky to gauge much info when you have the language capacity of a Glasweigan drunkard, the tunes pretty much speak for themselves.

Tikking Timebomb


It's true that over familiarity has led to a touch of contempt when it comes to Ke$ha, but for Grayskull it's become close to mysoginistic murderation. It's a good thing he's a don on the old digital beats and has filled them with all his excess aggression or else we'd be worried about him getting all Chris Brown on her. Instead he's stomped all over her tune with big phat bass boots and glitched all over her voice, turning this flirty little pop rap into a filthy Dubstep whore.

Ice Cold


Andre 3000 once posed the question, 'what's cooler than being cool?' We're inclined to disagree with his doppelgang of backing singers and believe that it's Ghostly International, a label that is not only too cool for school but too cool for college, university and night classes as well. If any of those finger snappin', black polo neck wearing, jazz cigarettte smoking dudes hanging out in Paris cafes back in the day could see into the future, Ghostly Int would be their vision. They've just unleashed a free EP from post Hip-hop producer Mux Mool (also so cool he even rhymes with the word), now that is cool as f**k.

Actually, having said all that this track from the EP is a touch aggressive. We wouldn't go as far as to say it's lost it's cool, perhaps redefined it somewhat.

Elevator's Stuck (On Repeat)


Fabric has always been a benchmark for quality. Their club line ups are pretty much the best in the world and for their Fabriclive mix series, artists make that little bit of extra effort it seems. Their latest release is a compilation which both puts a marker to what is happening right here right now and will continue to do so until everyone else catches up.

Elevator Music could be taken as being something of a play on words. Largely in the Dubstep realm, some of the die hard wobble jump up fiends would indeed view a lot of the tracks here like the sort of easy listening one might find in a lift. Whilst to the music snobs who would sneer at such assumptions, this is music to elevate your mind body and soul.

fabric presents Elevator Music: Vol. 1 from Fabric London on Vimeo.


Although there are some dark and moody moments, we're talking film noir rather than Fangoria and this album is bursting with warmth and energy. Scenic is a word we've possibly over used recently but there's no denying that listening to Elevator Music conjures up electronically generated virtual landscapes of other worlds, or perhaps inner worlds. Rather than being Buddah Bar beach music however, this is more about finding yourself space both on the dancefloor and within the hustle and bustle of the city, not so much escapism as a re-imagination of your surroundings.

Featured artists include the likes of Martyn, Mosca, Julio Bashmore, Doc Daneeka, Untold, Starkey and Shortstuff and the album is available to download now.

Not A Patch On The White Panda


Part of the fun of Mash Ups is an appreciation or at least understanding of the original tracks, but we have to admit we don't know either of these (although we get the distinct feeling we probably should) and this track's still dope. Props to The White Panda for sending it over.
