CLEAN BANDIT A&E EP
Clean Bandit are a DIY electronic, instrumental group from London with a really fresh, unique sound. A&E is fantastic swagger-pop; completely British sounding and delightfully eccentric. All the instruments are played by REAL MUSICIANS (saywhat?!), there is no Ableton or Logic as far as I know and the vocalists are members of a community singing group who the core band members found. Oh, and they also made this brilliant video themselves. Lovely.
Out on December 9th, on the excellent BLACK BUTTER RECORDS
ZINC feat. SASHA KEABLE - ONLY FOR TONIGHTProving once again, why Zinc is still at the top of his game in providing dance-floor fillers, Only For Tonight is just that. Although Zinc has his detractors for his slightly more commercial tracks, you can't deny the catchiness and simple joy gained from his wobbly, dance-floor bombs. Sure to be everywhere; proper festive banger.
JUSTIN MARTIN/LEROY PEPPERS - RIDING SPACESHIPS (SHADOW CHILD 'IN SEARCH OF 94' MIX
If you've not listened to Justin Martin's Ghetto's & Garden's album yet, then please get on it. It's a unique fun-filled journey through booty-bass, dn'b, dubstep, deep house and everything in between. A remix album dropped in October, which I featured on here. It included the bumpin' house remix of Don't Go by Dusky which has topped a few charts recently. Well, Justin Martin is set to drop another remix album pretty soon. This remix by Shadow Child is going to be on there, but we will have to wait for the full track because this is only a snippet. The original was a slow booty bass burner, but Shadow Child has gloriously dropped a HUGE breakbeat line throughout, giving the whole track a mad, atmospheric old skool sound
