Big fan of the LDZ. Frost delivers a mixtape that kept me smiling for the best part of 40 minutes. Ridiculously good and keeping with the optimistic and humourful LDZ vibe. Not to be missed.

Strategy - PreSeason Training

As one half of UK hipHop outfit Broke'n'English, Strategy shows off what their recent Umbro bursary can do in only 2 weeks! Not one to shy away from his roots, the lyrics are a homage to the City he grew up in and everything else that happened along the way. Freebies like this bring a mighty smile to my face and its going to be interesting to see what Strats and DRS come up with for their follow-up to their debut album, Subject2Status. Highlights of this appetite whetter are the acoustic version of Life On The Costa Del Salford ft. Samim Harmim, The Bleep Test and The Referendum ft. Konny Kon and DRS. Bag this and then head over to Broke'n'English blog and bag everything else you can. Refreshingly original stuff.

Dub Phizix - Break It

Big, big, big fans of Dub Phizix round here and his new single is released this week on Criticals sister label, Modulations.

On the A side "Break It" comes in hard with a growling bass line thats been devastating clubs for some time. On the flip Dub Phizix teams up with Skeptical to bring you "Four" an eyes down steppah which carries both of their unmistakeable sounds thrown into the mix.

Can't get enough of this stuff. Clean, deep and rolling tracks. I've said it before but the production is incredibly tight. Dub Phizix is clearly a man who loves his work.

Sounds That Speaks Volumes 11

Plasticians yearly mix returns packed full of bass driven beats and once again seamlessly bridges the gap between dubstep and grime. Exclusives are in abundance which is surely expected by now. The links will probably change as more of the mix becomes available as single tracks etc but nevertheless its surely an essential freebie.

Amen To That

Probably something some of you will have seen before but a must watch nonetheless.
This fascinating, brilliant 20-minute video narrates the history of the "Amen Break," a six-second drum sample from the b-side of a chart-topping single from 1969. This sample was used extensively in early hiphop and sample-based music, and became the basis for drum-and-bass and jungle music -- a six-second clip that spawned several entire subcultures. Nate Harrison's 2004 video is a meditation on the ownership of culture, the nature of art and creativity, and the history of a remarkable music clip.

Tactus & Darktide EP's

Seeking out some of the best EP's the web has to offer. Tactus goes for a root vibe alongside some deep and punchy bassline and Darktide tops off the freebies with some quality production by KeOsz in particular. Personal favourites on each cut here but it's best to grab all 3 then decide for yourself.

Computer Nostalgia

Something completely different now. I was incredibly obsessed with my ZX Spectrum in my very early teens. I used to display the games proudly alongside my music collection as they all used to fit on the same cassette storage rack. Looking at this website you realise that some of them had glorious cassette inlay artwork that was, in some cases, a million miles from how the game actually looked on your screen. Not that it actually mattered. Indulge.

Dub Phizix - Treatment

A man of his word, Dub Phizix brings us another freebie for the continuing support from fans of his Facebook page. 'Treatment' is a dark and moody D&B roller and as ever the production is double crisp. Grab the track alongside two previous gifts here and if you're not already a fan then get onto his Facebook page here because who knows, maybe he'll be feeling generous again in the future eh? *fingers crossed*

Skittles Dusty Riddims Vol.1

Skittles is blowing the dust off his old hard drives and has uncovered this "dusty riddim". As a thank you for all the support so far for the Tip-I-Cal-Ly single here is a treat for you all.

'Humble Abode' produced by MRK1 was recorded in 2007, originally intended for inclusion on Skittles debut LP 'Two Pints Of Brandy and A Packet Of Skittles' but just missed the release date.

Download it for free here at Skittles Facebook page.

A more musical feel than what some of you might be used to but Skittles trademark flow and word play is as fresh as ever.

Never Went To Blue Note

Yes, yes and YES! Ben UFO serves up a crisp selection paying homage to the now famous club where many caught their inspiration. Being only barely a teenager at the time (and being 150 miles away with no car) I was never able to venture there myself so this mix is pretty apt. Amazing that even though most of the tunes are 10 or so years old, production values and a recent revival in sounds created with ageing hardware mean the music is as clear, upfront and smooth as it's ever has been. The Boymerang remix of Ed Rush & Optical's track 'Technology' is a firm favourite in here.

01. DJ Die - Live and Direct (Full Cycle)
02. Innervisions - Digital Readout (Reinforced)
03. Studio Pressure - The Physical (Photek)
04. Hidden Agenda - Dispatches #1 (Metalheadz)

The Art Of Rolling

We're big fans of The Steppahs round these parts. Their new mix, which promises to be part 1 of a series, is an upfront & seamlessly blended collection of singles and exclusives and I think it's fair to say I'm a little jealous of some of their dubs. Loving the Kryptic Minds, Kito & Silkie cuts. Pick this up.

Dub Phizix Remix Freebie

To say thank you for the first 500 followers on his new Facebook page,Manchester drum and bass producer Dub Phizix is giving away his remix of Sabre's 100 Teeth for free online. For every 500 followers who like his page Dub Phizix will give away another free tune.

So get clicking as I want more!

With a host of releases forthcoming on some of Drum and Bass' biggest labels including Soul:r, Exit, Critical, Creative Source, Commercial Suicide and Ingredients, Dub Phizix is set to make some very big waves in the world of Drum and Bass over the next few months.

On the 18th of April Ingredients Recordings, one of the fastest growing cutting edge drum and bass labels, will release "Out There" and "Athos" by Dub Phizix. A follow up to his collaboration with Skeptical released on the same label late last year.

Download the remix because frankly, its brilliant. The production on his work is incredible. This remix lies somewhere between familiar sounding D&B and some kind of futuristic vibe I'm not even onto yet. Larger than big.
