? ACTRESS / Wrek Discs / UK
Actress’s dubstep aesthetics mingle with rave breaks and micro-house attitude to conjure up a gleefully indefinable journey through one of the more tangential side roads veering off from today’s electronic music.
Actress – Purrple Splazsh
? FULGEANCE / Musique Large / FR
Fulgeance’s music is a perfect blend of huge, synth-laced French Electro and modern Instrumental Hip Hop.
Fulgeance – Haggis
? 1000NAMES / Black Acre / BG
The 1000names duo recently dropped Illuminated Man, one of the most breathtaking and accomplished LPs to come out of the abstract hip hop scene in the last few years on the consistently brilliant Black Acre imprint.
Juno: Build boss Baobinga teams up with Ginz (from the “Purple City”) and Cosmin TRG on this debut from his new label. Title tune “The Good Stank” is just as brilliant as you’d expect from this team of post-dubsteppers, with big live drums played at a half-speed and a cavalcade of bubbly synths spewing nicely over the mix, all anchored by a soulful synth melody. “I Get Ruff” on the other hand is uptempo and just as kaleidoscopic – with Baltimore-style drums and deep bass firming up the rhythm. Clearly this won’t be the last diamond to come out on Build.
RBMA: “Red Bull Music Academy 2010 participants Venice (Gomma), Kool Clap (Vulture) and Minus (Arhiva7) reunite at the Tilt! night in Bucharest, supported by local jocks Fanas and Kapnobatai. It’s a family affair…”

There’s a place in bass electronica, where the percussive house meets spacious dubtech and dense funky. We’re not sure how this place is called but xxxy happens to be quite at it. His futuristic number ‘Just for me’, canny ‘Reflections’ or the cherry on top of Fabric’s last compilation that ‘Sing With Us’ is – it’s really a whole different level.
BBQ mix mirrors the variety of his own styles, but most of all, it unveils his exceptional ability to merge them all in the most enjoyable way. Mixing the likes of Julio Bashmore, Addison Groove or Poland’s own Sekta, xxxy tops his selection with 2 unpublished gems by the man himself – the opening and closing tracks are both BBQ Exclusives.
We’re proud to present second installment in our mix series, enjoy!

In hype of the mega Chibuku 10 year birthday bonanza this coming Friday, Leo Belchetz, one of Chibuku’s own resident DJs and all-round house music guru has presented us with a very special mix. As if holding a sonic seminar on the history of Chibuku, the mix guides us through the kind of silky sounds and grinding beats that have come to represent the hugely successful clubnight over the past decade.
As the man like Belchetz says himself: “Chibuku actually started as an underground house night, providing an alternative to the big room trance and funky house that dominated Liverpool at the time, and it’s that aspect of the night I wanted to reflect. So I put together the mix using only tracks by my personal favourite DJs and artists who have appeared at Chibuku over the years.” via. Tracklist after the jump.
“Geeneus’ gift is to be able to throw European house anthems into London’s pirate arena, finding them a new audience amongst the UK funky faithful. One such re-contextualised example is Bassjackers & Apster “Klambu”, that is to funky what Azzido Da Bass’ “Doom’s Night” was to UK garage– at once anthemic and alien. The UK funky canon is vast and has been covered here extensively but always also worth checking are Marcus Nasty’s Rinse sets, Roska’s forthcoming album, DVA’s stuttering new single for Hyperdub (“Natty”), Deep Teknologi’s “Anthem”, Ill Blu sets, and so many more…”
