In his previous incarnation Ben Westbeech was a master in deep disco, with Falling creating a massive stir in 2011. In his current incarnation, as Breach, the onus has been on a darker sound encompassing techno, garage and all manner of genre's.The massive You Won't Find Love Again made the top 10's of many an end of year lists of 2012. Recent tracks with Dark Sky on Breach's own imprint Naked Naked, have had a stripped low-end bass shuffle reminiscent of some of Claude Von Stroke's Dirtybird releases, and so it is not surprising that Von Stroke jumped on the chance to release this booty shaker, simply titled Jack. And you will.
Released-April 1st 2013
If you are familiar with The Fat! Club blog, then be sure to get your hands on this, their second mini-compilation showcasing their roster of exciting underground UK producers.
Amid smooth takes on Janet Jackson's Someone to call my lover, highlights include Vice City who sample Faith Evans' Love like this before and Gage, with the techno-infused bumper Burner.
Check out the label, Chew the fat! night info and blog.
Oliver Jones brings a fresh UK house take on Aaliyah's If Your Girl Only Knew. The track first featured in Skream's december mix, with inquisitive ears begging for an I.D or release. Now Oliver Jones has kindly offered this crisp, soulful cut as a free download. The vocals are timeless, the production is a faultless and it further cements the UK house scene being pushed into the mainstream by the likes of Disclosure at the moment.
Friend Within - The Game
Everything DIRTYBIRD touches is gold. New kid on the roster is Friend Within, a mysterious, 'experienced' DJ with huge production credentials. The Game EP is bumpin' house, with all of those Dirtybird flavours, synths and nasty low ends. Out Now on Drip Fm.
So who is Friend Within? Any ideas? Well he also produced under the name DJ #Unknown, releasing a series of rare tracks on his soundcloud page. The one that has created the biggest stir is the Renegade Master Refix, which will hopefully get a full release. This one does some serious damage.
Justin Martin & Eat's Everything - Feather Fight E.P
Next up, SOS favourites, Justin Martin and Eat's Everything step outside the Dirtybird nest to release this deep, playful E.P on Hypercolour. It fits with the label's sound; clean, deep, fluid house, but is just dirtier! The second track combines low end frequencies, light atmospherics and cowbell 4/4, to make this another essential Hypercolour release.
