This show starts off with a few tracks from albums shortlisted for this year’s Dead Albatross music prize, with some dancehall, dub and beats. Dead Albatross is a community-run competition for new UK and Irish music, with the occasional re-release. I’ve been involved the last couple of years as part of the growing group of people who try to work out their top picks from the shortlist and it’s a lot of fun so wanted to play a few tracks for this show.
The second half focuses on more up-tempo stuff, mostly with some newer breaks and DnB to round things off.

Quite a mix of genres this week. Starts off with a nice vocal number from Lutine and goes through dubstep, beats, electronica, a Marilyn Mansun remix, some atmospheric rock from the film Only Lovers Left Alive (highly recommended), before finishing with some dark drum n bass and some pretty ugly breakcore. The last track features David Cameron humming, which is nice.

I think this is classified as ‘banging’.
Although offensive banging doesn’t sound right.
Anyways, this is an occasionally brutal techno track with a drizzling of DnB.
Liberties by Mono-Amine, on Lausanne-based Agnost1k Records. Out just a few days ago.
I’ve posted something from Blackout Music NL before, but came across them again recently and think it’s worth another.* Lots of juicy drum and bass goodness, generally at the slightly more raw end of the spectrum.
Plenty of tunes to check out. This is ‘Magnetism’ by Mefjus & Rido (Austria/Czech Republic).
*Was re-listening to Machinecode’s album ‘Samurai‘, and got sucked into what else the artists were up to. Still, hands down, one of the best albums I’ve heard for a while.
‘I Am The Black Gold of The Sun (4hero Remix)’ by Nuyorican Soul. Bit of an awesome one. Funky souly grooveness.
‘The Quick Brown Foxtrot’ by Skeewiff & Syd Dale, on Pedigree Cuts (2013).
Love a good cheesy jazz / DnB combo.
