'United Nation, Three Decades of Drum & Bass' [In Cinemas February 21st - UK]

Artwork by Junior Tomlin

Do you remember Terry Turbo the indispensable promoter and main man behind One Nation?
Well even though the last years he's into the new role of an Actor & Producer, that doesn't let him forget his roots, his passion and his commitment to the evolution of the movement he represented and was highly involved.
This time he decided to make a film paying homage to the movement that grew and it's still receiving huge exposure worldwide.
'United Nation, Three Decades of Drum & Bass' is the title of the forthcoming documentary/film directed by himself along with Richard Turner and as the official synopsis on IMDB says:

"...Drum & Bass developed from the London-centric rave scene as an underground movement that rapidly spread across the UK, and then throughout the world. The scene had serious issues with violence and, a sometimes uneasy, drugs culture that plagued its early growth. Governments reacted by bringing in draconian laws in an attempt to kill off the movement. We tell the behind-the-scenes story of what was truly going on, away from the eyes of the 'sorted' masses on the dance floors: the guns, the drugs, the sex, the knives, the gangs and, of course, the artists and performers who, despite all this, advanced the music"

DJ Fresh, Fabio & Grooverider, DJ Rap, Sigma, Ragga Twins, Sigma and many many other legends are featured on this great film coming out on the big screen for one special night & exclusive play on February the 21st, taking place @ Troxy in London.
You may book your tickets here and better do it fast, cos this even will be totally sentimental. Aside of the film play there will be also exclusive guest sets, legendary acts & producers and finally a surprise Live P.A.
A night of celebrating Drum & Bass and UK's Dance history that none should be absent.

17th September...
The 50th year of Keith Flint, the iconic Punk Rave King, who was born in 17th September of 1969 and passed away 6 months ago. Still fresh and nobody can easily accept it.
In memory of this great performer, a team of producers have made a compilation album including their exclusive takeover of remixes & covers paying homage to him as well as to the Prodigy.
The album is entitled "Jilted Generations: An Underground Tribute To The Prodigy" comprised of 12 tracks made for a good cause as all proceeds will held to the US based Suicide Prevention Lifeline.
Read the official statement above and show your support to the whole project.

"Keith Charles Flint was an English vocalist, dancer, and occasional motorcycle racer, best known to a wide audience for his work with the seminal electronic group The Prodigy. Beginning as a backup dancer with the group, Flint would later become a frontman for The Prodigy by 1996, lending his appearances as a songwriter and vocalist to some of their biggest commercial hits, such as "Firestarter", "Breathe", "Baby's Got A Temper", and "Omen". Flint's iconic punk-inspired appearance became indelibly associated with the group through their music videos, and almost certainly played a major role in The Prodigy's mainstream success, and legacy as a key influence in the subgenres of big beat, breakbeat, and hardcore dance.

On March 4th, 2019, Keith Flint was found dead in his Essex home of a suspected suicide, as The Prodigy was in the midst of a major world tour. A massive outpouring of grief and tribute from peers such as The Chemical Brothers, Liam Gallagher, Azealia Banks, Gary Numan, Ho99o9, Frank Turner, and many more soon followed. These tributes reflected not just on the major influence and contributions Flint had made via The Prodigy, but of his gentle temperment, wide-reaching generosity, and warmth as an individual, in sharp contrast to his aggressive stage persona.

With "Jilted Generations: An Underground Tribute To The Prodigy", we hope to show our love as well.

Who are we? Just a loose collection of underground electronic and industrial musicians who want to pay tribute to the long-lasting legacy of Keith Flint, and have come together with 12 hard-hitting covers of tracks by The Prodigy to show our appreciation for the man and his enduring influence on music.

All proceeds generated from the purchase of this compilation will be donated to the Suicide Prevention Lifeline - "

A. Paul & Shark - Liquid Technicolor Blanket Of Disconnect
B. Paul & Shark - Liquid Technicolor Blanket Of Disconnect (Denham Audio Remix)

Well, Free Discs is here to accomplish that, run by Paul & Shark and now off for the second offering, which is available to pre-order now getting an early support from established music soldiers, like Annie Mac (BBC Radio1), Shadow Child and Violet.

You can tell that the aim of this underground and very promising label is to educate, represent and mainly modernize the 90's ethos of partying without any concern while dreaming without limits. This is what provokes to somebody when listening to their speciality of gems!

Additionally, the second release could be easily trick on you about its roots. It's like taken from back in the day. In fact, it's the UK House and Bass music full on euphoria, an illecit warehousey dish released 30 years later but keeping the right warmth needed. Fair enough, Paul & Shark have achieved producing a large tune with an even larger title like 'Liquid Technicolor Blanket of Disconnect' taking a Sheffield Breaks takeover by nobody else than Denham Audio. Lots to say about this magic trio; anything they touch is like gold and this new installment is high class again.
Free Time 002 is available to pre-order now, on 10" limited hand stamped as well as digital. Officially out on 27th September.

• Produced by Paul & Shark at Kirovi studio
• Remixed by Denham Audio

Dave Skywalker pres. "With Respect to... EP#2 - SLIPMATT" [Kniteforce Radio]

Late August, Neo-Rave son and BangFace resident, DJ/producer/label manager Dave Skywalker has launched a new personal project, series of live mixes paying homage to some of the artists that he respects and is fed up with inspiration from them.
The second episode is available to hear now and is fully dedicated to the one and only Slipmatt, the Godfather of Hardcore!

"Continuing my set of mixes showcasing artists who have had a big influence on me both as a producer and DJ, this episode features the Godfather of Hardcore, DJ SLIPMATT.

A man who needs no introudction to anyone in the rave scene, Matt has been producing and DJing for pretty much 30 years now, and was there right from the start. One of my first rave tapes was Slipmatt at Fantazia, and my favourite hardcore tune of all time happens to be a track he had a hand in engineering (for the record, it's Positive Energy by Vibena). He's behind Universal Recordings, one of the best happy hardcore labels from the 90s, and is crediting the happy hardcore scene as a whole with his SMD series.

Basically, he's a legend, of which few people have the right to hold that title. In this mix, it's an honour to show his brevity through his involvement in SL2, the SMD series, and in his amazing skills as a remixer. Respect."

SL2 - On A Ragga Tip

08. Nastya Kazantseva - PΔINKILLΞR (Famitsu Rework)

Saint Petersburg based producer, FAMITSU returns to his local Moscow friends over Hyperboloid Records to deliver something fresh, rejuvenated and highly energized & nostalgic taken from the days of innocence.
'Mind Software' is the name of his latest offering, an 8-track digital album of quality varied vibes from hyper to dreamy electricity onto a proper rave tip that won't leave you empty.

FAMITSU is definetely one of the coolest names to check these days, his new album is just his finest work to date, as he's already been signed on AirWax, Internetghetto and one year after his latter album 'Virile' on Hyperboloid, he's back with this outstanding new material.

'Mind Software' has some noteworthy tracks that highlight the concept such as 'X-T-C' which you can tell it reminds quite a lot of Unicorn Kid innovative rhythms a couple of years ago, while 'Time Jump' is paying homage to the happy side of Early Hardcore split on 4/4 beats and crossover breakbeats. A time when Marusha meets Dune 20 years after on the same area.
The album is available now on Hyperboloid bandcamp page and can be stream and played out loud & proud. And, as ever, don't forget to show your support to the artist behind.

goreshit - AP1 - Nineties Rave Retrospective Volume 7

UK multigenre genius the man like Goreshit has just unleashed the 7th chapter of his very own successful 'Nineties Rave Retrospective' spreading his unique hardware skills! This 7th volume came out in 100 digipak CDs (apparently sold out immediately in less than 10 days) and it's still available in digital format via donation/naming your price.
This new and highly anticipated work by Goreshit took him only a couple of weeks to work using a Korg MS-2000, Korg M1, Roland MC-303, Akai S2000, 2 Yamaha Emp100's, a Yamaha mg12/4 and an Amiga 1200. It includes 9 original dishes from him along with some hot remixes by his good pals, Breakforce One, Fat Frumos, Casketkrusher, Microphyst and Hitori Tori; each one of them paying homage on a devoted takeover under their own style.

Hardcore Techno, Oldskool Rave, illicit breakbeats and pure oldskool are all captured on this amazing new offering by Goreshit, something that you'll fall in love immediately. If I had to pick his best one from this album I'd recommend his 'Bad Idea' while the best of remix would be the one from Breakforce One spitting aggressive breakbeats of happiness.
All in all worth every penny to this amazing producer!
In complete love and full support especially to this incredible series of retro rave.

TERRORRYTHMUS - Dubcore Volume 16 [12" + Digital on Sozialistischer Plattenbau]

A1 - Something Unreal
A2 - Sike
B1 - Low Drop
B2 - Shake That
B3 - Depression

One of the best representers of the rave angle of Juke and Footwork is German based producer/DJ, Terrorrythmus, known of his unique style combining strong basslines, trancy elements, immense boucing as well as hardcore mentality into his tunes.

One of his latest and noteworthy releases came out a while ago on his locals Sozialistischer Plattenbau. This was the launching release of the label for this year, but never too late for such intense stuff like this 5-track bang in here.

'Dubcore Vol.16' presents Terrorrythmus offering 5 fresh personal vibes of him, stronger than ever.
Kicking off with the happy ravy 'Something Unreal' turning a happy hardcore vibe into Juke, while 'Sike' is maybe the biggest killa track of the whole release bouncing hard to the bone! Beware of that! On the flipside we got the experimental juke aspect of 'Low Drop', then it's 'Shake That', which is a certain junglistic beast with firing hardcore kicks, but if its not too much there's also another juke amen breakin vibe entitled 'Depression'
That's the right title when a record like this one comes to an end, isn't it?
This release is available on limited edition of 12" Vinyl and Digital too.

Sozialistischer Plattenbau
