So I was supposed to have a really productive day today. Third year deadlines are drawing ever nearer, and I defiantly sprang the day playing Minecraft with Smokey. But! On the the plus side we found a fucking crazy mine and when Dulcie joined us we absolutely bossed it :) any way this song has been in my head all day, it’s could be because zane was going on about her featuring in...

So a couple days ago I signed up to this DJ Promotion Website, which basically sends you all of the promo’s of tracks so you can DJ them out and about before they go on general release. i downloaded a Few bits and bobs but this one stuck out the most. I first came across this guy when he produced Tinie Tempah’s Debut track, Pass Out, and from there he has gone on to be one of the...
Song For The Day: Tuesday 15th May 2012
So following on from yesterdays study session with the First Lady, I discovered this track as well, it has that very Synthy Downtempo Jazz vibe, like Trip-Hop but not so cold, very similar to the likes of Jai Paul. anyways, when the Synth kicks in in the track I cannot stop bobbing my head. I love the way the track builds, and still remains very simple. Song For The Day: Kindness - House
Song For The Day: Monday 14th May 2012

I woke up this morning, first thing I did was jump on iTunes and Purchase it (Also available for free from there website, but support little bands).

Song For The Day: Thursday 3rd May 2012
So I woke up this morning with this track in my head, I rolled over to ask the lovely lady in my bed what the track was, as I had no idea of the artist nor the track, all i knew was that it was a cover of the incredible band “Arcade Fire”. she informed me of the information i needed and instantly made a purchase on iTunes. its a wonderful Half Tempo cover, very Dub Influenced, but...
Song For The Day: Saturday 28th April 2012
So tonight was my step mothers 50th birthday party, hosted back home in Winchester. One of the best bits about going home is the amount of new music I get to listen to and absorb. This album came out on Monday and is absolutely incredible, this artist was one of the soul reasons I got into Drum & Bass and every one of his albums has been great, but this one is really fantastic. All the...

So I woke up this morning hearing the original of this, so it was in my head from the word go, later on I was buying some music, and remembered that these lads had done a remix of it, two very promising young lads from south London, we focused on them last summer with there track ‘Blue You’ which was one of my summer smashers last year they. This year they have a new EP on the way...

Song For The Day: Thursday 19th April 2012
So i caught this last week on Annie Mac’s show on friday night, and fell in love with it, its really quirky, and kinda Genre less, always a big fan of things which refuse to fit into a Box, I will let the track do the talking, big tune, it has kept me going whilst I have been putting all the ISMISM Mixes on to iTunes and Web designing. Anywhoo Enjoi! Song For The Day: Gucci Vump -...

This track comes out next week on Shogun Audio and is the first single taken from there...
Song For The Day: Thursday 12th April 2012
So i heard Annie Mac play this a few weeks back now, but it appears that it has reached daytime radio, as Sarah Cox has been playing it all week, and driving to the cinema this afternoon had Me, my Mum and my Little Brother singing along to the B-Line. from that point on i had it stuck in my head. its a Big Tune, the Single comes with a few remixes one from Botnek, and one from Radio 1’s...
Song For The Day: Wednesday 11th April 2012
So I was listening back to Hospitality at Brixton from Friday night, during Logistics set, he dropped Marka, the half tempo tune that is tearing apart every rave at the moment, and he followed it up with a very similar half beat riddim. I was showing it to a friend yesterday who challenged me to find out the name of the track, something that I have ‘Mad Skills’ in, half an hour and a...
Song For The Day: Friday 6th April 2012
So about 4 years ago, just as I was starting my second year of college I was listening to the Drum & Bass arena podcast and one particular week they had a hurt mix from this young lady, with a big press release from ‘Digital Soundboy’ branding her as the ‘First Digital Soundgirl’ to this day that mix is one of my all time faves, it was the dirt time I had ever heard a...

So I have a kind of running competition with a friend of mine at the moment where we try and find a new band before the other does, my first band was The Neighbourhood the other ay, and yesterday when driving to Southampton with the fam, Scott Mils believe it or not played this on daytime Radio 1. I think that its gonna be an epic summer tune, really folky, but very reminiscent of the fantastic...
Song For The Day: Wednesday 4th April 2012
So I heard this on Annie Mac’s show the other day, and it really is just a summer smasher, this will stay in your head for age. The track written with a high octane anthem liquid Drum & Bass sound, but the structure and layout of a No1 track, it’s going to chart and I wouldn’t be surprised if it charts very high. this is the sound of a smile on a summers day. big things to...
Song For The Day: Tuesday 3rd April 2012
So I was listenign to Zanes show the other day and he opened up with this track and described it as a “piece of Drum & Bass that should be compared to the likes of Sub Focus - Aeroplane, High Contrast - If We Ever and other modern D&B Classics” now that is quite a statement, and I didn’t believe him until it dropped, WOW what a tune, I’ve met both of the lads on...
Song For The Day: Sunday 1st April 2012
So I came across this track on Annie Mac’s show a couple of weeks back, and it’s such a unique sound, that I can’t help but love it, British Legend Hudson Mowhawlk, hailing from Glasgow (made it into a very rare list of Music that I like from Scotland) teaming up with Canada’s very own Lunice, to form this crazy experiment, I don’t even know where I would beginning...
Song For The Day: Saturday 31st March 2012
So I’m sat at my desk last night, listing to Zane from monday night, and he plays this tune, and then says about how “It’s going to be a summer anthem”. I then had to go investigate, I then find out the band only has 170 people following them on Soundcloud, 1000 Facebook fans, and just shy of 2000 views on youtube, we are talking serious underground music here, in the age...
Song For The Day: Friday 30th March 2012
So last year saw the second Artist album from this dynamic production Duo and there Debut Artist album on Hospital Records, and last week saw the release of there remix album. my Faveroit track on the album was entitled “Far Away” both incredibly Uplifting and Melancholy all at the same time, the remixed version is more of a “Sequel” or “Part 2” to the...
Song For The Day: Thursday 29th March 2012
So I heard this tune a few weeks back on Zane Lowe’s show, as part of his “Next Hype” feature, and instantly liked it, then I found out that they were playing Reading 2012, which got me thinking that maybe they are a band that can bring more than a catchy song to the table. Then the other day I was having a chat with a friend of mine, and I was trying to show off my current...
Song For The Day: Wednesday 28th March 2012
So every so often an EP comes around I fall in love with whoever made it, this EP is an example of that, but more to the point this tune is an example of that, I first heard it a few weeks back, but forgot about it until it was released the other day, check out the tune its incredible, and also, if you are wanting more check out there Powder and bass Mix available free through iTunes.

Song For The Day: Monday 23rd January 2012
So there have been a few tracks kicking around that I have loved as of recent, it’s kinda a new genre, one with out a name, its around the 100bpm mark, very Drum & Bass/Dubstep influenced, but with a Hip-Hop Break, I don’t even know how you would name it, but its fucking wicked, if someone names it please hit me up and let me know :) its something that I’ve been waiting...
Song For The Day: Thursday 19th January 2012
So I think it’s kind of natural human nature to think that if you get something for free, then it must not be very good, why els would it be free right? We associate free things to be a very low quality, or a gimmick, In the music industry a lot of things go as a free download because It wasn’t good enough to make it onto an album, because it’s an illegitimate bootleg, or...
Song For The Day: Saturday 14th January 2012
So it’s that time of year when we are all trying to change things about ourselves, I’m talking about resolutions, personally I think they are the biggest heap of balls ever, I never make a resolution, cus you never achieve them, I usually make a few goals to achieve, this year, one I want to do is listen to more radio, more new music, it’s so easy just to focus on one genre...
Song For The Day: Friday 13th January 2012
So I’m in the mist of doing a best of 2011 mix at the moment, it’s something I decided to do last year, but decided against it this year because it took so long to do, but here we are, so over the last few days I have been filtering through all the best tracks of last year, and for some reason I didn’t give this track anywhere near enough glory, I first heard it on one of Annie...
Song For The Day: Monday 9th January 2012
So this guy has been big in the scene for about a year now, and what a year it has been for him, apparently he played 322 gigs last year alone, anyone who works that hard gets points in my book. Now there is a lot of buzz about this particular producer, a lot of “heads” seem to hate him, me, I think his music is wicked, it’s hard, it’s aggressive, he’s not...
Song For The Day: Sunday 8th January 2012
So last term me and the Smokey Joe decided to go to Moles (A Legendary club in Bath) on a Friday night and managed to catch this band, the energy was amazing, I’ve never seen moles so hyped, the crowd was loving it.

Song For The Day: Artificial Intelligence - Days Of Rage VIP
Song For The Day: Sunday 13th December 2011
All I can say about this track is that if you are rond your grandmothers house for a sunday roast, this may not be the one fore her, well i dunno it may be, give it a shot see what she says. It seems that Deadmau5 is trying to slowly take over the Dubstep scene and everyone that can step up to the plate in terms of there filth, snapping up Feed Me (AKA Spor), Skrillex, Knife Party (AKA Pendulum)...
Song For The Day: Saturday 12th November 2011
Today is a “Post Motion Day”, the tile pretty much explains itself, but today is a day where you wake up covered in about 50 different people sweat, all your muscles hurt, you have a thumping headache, and for some reason you can never hear anything. thats what happens when you pack 200 people int a room with a fuck off soundsytem controlled by the Likes of Rusko, Andy C & The...
