:::RL Grime:::

I don't know much about this guy RL Grime, assuming its a guy, but I do think he makes pretty amazing music. Future Bass at its finest; mixing elements of Juke, Rap, UK Funky, I could keep going, but I think you get the idea. I put my personal favorite down below, but peep the whole Soundcloud.

:::Jam City>>Waterworx EP:::

Night Slugs really haven't missed the mark yet. Their catalogue of releases reads like a best of 2010, and so far, 2011 hasn't been any different. Following up Bok Bok's Southside EP, they have quietly uploaded previews of Jam City's forthcoming release [NS011], Waterworx EP, onto their Soundcloud. This is filled with that wonky, sliding, wiggling bass and warped out sirens. Late night, dark room, sweaty bodies type shit. Tell your friends, this comes out later this month, and pre-order it here!!

:::Raekwon&Nas>>Rich & Black:::

Raekwon and Nas go in on some gully shit over a pretty ill beat. Rae is getting old [check the white beard steeze], but these dudes are the best. PEEP GAME!!

:::NGUZUNGUZUxXLR8R Podcast:::

NGUZUNGUZU should not be a new name for most you, hopefully. The duo has been making parties funky, and the people sweat, for a few years now, but I think now is their real time to fucking shine!! Already part of the Fade to Mind crew, their newest EP [Timesup EP] marks the first release on the Fade to Mind label, run mostly by Kingdom [pretty sure its more of a collective vibe tho...]. So basically, they are killing shit and XLR8R took notice [as always] and locked them down for the newest installment of their podcast series. Tropical bass vibes dripping off this one.

:::Salva Remixes Rainbow Arabia:::

Full force on this shit right here. Salva is poised for domination. His Frite Nite label is doing BIG things. He is doing even BIGGER things. Get informed. His album, Complex Housing, was released earlier this year and received an overwhelmingly positive response. They love this shit. You will too. On this track he took a spaced out jam from Rainbow Arabia and put his special dancefloor ready touch on it. Pure gold.

Rainbow Arabia - Blind [Salva Remix]

The always amazing, never disappointing, always ON POINT; MACHINEDRUM, has a brand new 4 track 12" out today on LuckyMe! Get excited. Alarma, as always, a near perfect collection of club bangers and hallucinogenic sonic vibrations streaming directly from this bass music mastermind's imagination. With the release of his forthcoming album for Planet Mu, Room(s), on the horizon, it would seem Machinedrum is ready for a major takeover this summer.

:::FlyLo>>Soundcloud Update!!!:::

I don't know when the last time FlyLo updated his soundcloud, but it has been forever! Worry not, for the man has done the blogosphere a favor and dropped a few choice cuts from what we can assume is an insane amount of life-altering, blissful beats stashed away on numerous hardrives/brains. Enjoy, and post this shit on your facebook/blog/twitter!!


BNJMN has this kind of lo-fi, hazy approach to making technoish house music. Its dope, really dope. Last year, as Jackhigh, he released the Tropics EP with Teebs [on Svetlana Industries]. This is beautiful music. BNJMN's latest EP entitled 141, is out today, and comes with remixes from Kelpe and Lukid. You can download a bonus track from the EP below and also peep the video for Lukid's remix of One Sea. Tell your friends, play this all summer.

Tell all your friends, and maybe play this next time you hear someone talking about being bored with whatever music they have been listening to... FUTURE SOUNDS!
