Bang Face Weekender 2016, 14-17 April
Southport Holiday Park, Shore Road, Ainsdale, PR8 2PZ

Following on from the epic milestone of 100 events, Bang Face returns to Southport for a long weekend raving in a classic British holiday park, 14-17 April 2016, it’s the perfect place for a music weekender. All the venues were designed for ballroom dancing and cabaret (the raving of the day) and are interlinked creating the buzz of a club atmosphere but on a festival scale. Plus everybody stays in a maze of self-catering chalets, the ideal place to lose yourself in the chaos but also survive without the stress of wondering when your next shower will be. It may now look a bit like a dystopian correctional facility but it’ll soon feel like home!

This years highlights include a headline show by Noisia who have exploded exponentially on the Drum & Bass scene. A full live band performance from ‘Madchester’ rave heroes 808 State. Canadian IDM / breakcore pioneer Venetian Snares plays live for the first time ever! The masked enigma, Angerfirst, makes his debut to teach us a lesson in Dutch hardcore. Banging Techno from US legend Joey Beltram plus an extremely rare performance from The Mover. LTJ Bukem takes on a rolling journey of D&B classics. Jungle originators M-Beat and General Levy reunite for an exclusive live set including the mighty ‘Incredible’. Plus sets from Black Sun Empire, Luke Vibert, DJ Godfather, Shut Up And Dance, The Outside Agency, Perc & Truss, Mr. C, SL2, Big Narstie, Royal-T and dozens more. In total, we have over 150 acts from all over the world making Bang Face the spiritual home for ravers who enjoy the full spectrum of upfront electronic dance music.

For the first time, the Weekender will run over four days and include a Thursday night warm-up party with 90s pop sensation the Vengaboys! What, you might say? Well, the 2016 fancy dress theme is Pop Music and you’re encouraged to come dressed as your favourite wronguns from any era with the best dressed winning a chalet for next year. The theme always sets the tone for all the fun extra activities. The infamous Rave Pool Party, don’t forget your speedos. BFTV broadcast live to all chalets which is like Richard & Judy meets The Word meets The Magic Roundabout. New for 2016 is Songs of Rave Sunday featuring a classic old skool line-up - Randall, Tango & Ratty, DJ SS and Jumping Jack Frost. We also have all the classic holiday park games like go-carting, crazy golf and a footy comp. Plus we’re holding a very special opening ceremony this year - Mark Archer from Altern 8 will be getting married live on stage! A marriage made in rave heaven and you’re all invited…

Tickets are £169 per person sold in chalet groups of 2–8

[VMRDT049] Laydee Virus - Shadows [Forthcoming From Viral-Mental Recordings 05/02/16!!!]

1/ Shadows.

Viral-Mental Records introduce another seriously deep, dark and menacing neuro, tech-stepper from Australia's very own queen of D&B darkness, Laydee Virus. Utilising a shuffling, 2-step break pattern complimented by ominous atmospherics and a low, grumbling bassline. 'Shadows' brings forth a sense of unease with it's minimalist composition, yet ever present sense of dread as opposed to going 'all-out battering ram darkness'. Which for all lovers of moody, pitch black drum & bass, is a GOOD thing!!!

The Laydee Virus, 'Shadows' single will be available to purchase from all good Viral-Mental Records digital stockists from 05/02/16, so get those speakers prepared quick!!!

[ARR069] Exit Point - Age Of Aquarius EP [Forthcoming From Allowance Records 05/02/16]

1/ Age Of Aquarius.
2/ Ladies & Gentlemen.
3/ Listen.
4/ Peace In Dub.
5/ Rise Of The G-Funk.
6/ These Sounds.

We may still be in the depths of Winter but Exit Point and Allowance Records bring to you a solid collection of Summery, liquid drum & bass and chilled downtempo breaks to bring a little sunshine into your life with the forthcoming 'Age Of  Aquarius EP'.

Opening to the sounds of a languid double-bassline and trumpet flourishes, the EP's title track, 'Age Of Aquarius' then introduces lush atmospheric pad notes and stepping, organic breaks to the mix alongside massive bass throbs and African chants to great effect. 
We are taken deep into the depths of a smokey, blues bar for some jazz-tinged drum and bass next with the smooth grooves of 'Ladies & Gentlemen' before the rolling, breakbeat percussion and infectious synth melodies of 'Listen' takes us on another cinematic jazz & bass excursion to make even the E-Z Rollers jealous.

The tempo drops a few notches for the downtempo dub and breaks of 'Peace In Dub', which introduces phat bass backed by ten-tonne, layered breaks and skankin' reggae rhythms. The pace picks up once more with the amen break backed 'Rise Of The G-Funk', which utilises that infamous G-Funk, sinewave synth melody over one hell of a funkadelic groove. 'These Sounds' closes the EP by giving us a deceptively brooding intro before presenting us with a bouncy, upbeat bassline and disco-horns to bring a touch of light to combat the aforementioned moodiness.

Altogether Exit Point delivers six upbeat liquid/downtempo tracks with a huge focus on 'live' breakbeat percussion and jazz-funk grooves with the 'Age Of Aquarius EP'. So if you're needing some music to beat those Winter blues, then look no further!!!

The Exit Point, 'Age Of Aquarius EP' is available to download from all good Allowance Records digital stockists from 05/02/16...

[Inner Minds Recordings] Rad Rod - L.S.D. (Modkre Remix) [Free Download Available Now!!!]

1/ Rad Rod - L.S.D. (Modkre Remix).

The latest junglistic offering from the Inner Minds Recordings camp sees Rad Rod's 'L.S.D.' receive an intense glitch/breakcore re-interpretation from Ohio based break-junkie, Modkore, which sees him dropping fierce, machine-gun fire amen breaks over hazy, dub-FX-ed, jazzy atmospherics and deep bass drones. 

If you can imagine the looped, found footage samplescapes of Odd Nosdam (seriously, look him up!!!) crossed with the likes of early Squarepusher you'll not be far off with this. A top blend of experimental break-work!

Rad Rod's 'L.S.D. (Modkre Remix)' is available to download for FREE from from the Inner Minds Recordings Bandcamp page, but if your feeling this, them make sure to support the artist and label by donating whatever you feel the track's worth!
