MAM – Crushed Ice
Take a dash of Daft Punk and mix it with some Life Like and you’ve got MAM’s ‘Crushed Ice’. They released a bunch of edits on Wolf + Lamb a while back. I do believe ‘Crushed Ice’ is on The Future Disco Vol.4 compilation, and Vol.5 is coming out today. Might be worth checking out if you like ‘future disco’

One of the most impressive things about it is how briskly the eight minute run time zips by. It begins with a relatively simple almost ‘downtempo boogie’ vibe, but by the four minute mark you realise that everything that has preceded has been preparing you for an incredible drop filled with stabbing synth’s and a thumping kick drum.
Give it one listen through and there’s every chance it’ll hook you in like it has me…

So Nas has a new track coming out from his new album. As far as i’m aware this isn’t some old B-side or track from a re-release, could be wrong however. If it is his new track then it sounds like Nas is back on form, which is a deadly thing. Personally i’m awaiting his track with Frank Ocean… Dude’s too smooth, and i don’t even like R’n'B.
If you like this then go cop his new album out in the next few months.

So, Julio Bashmore takes on Classixx Track ‘into the valley’… needless to say its a certified summer jam. Considering I haven’t been impressed with Bashmore’s DJ Sets, his productions are next level! I won’t bore you with the nitty gritty of how this sounds as you can listen to it yourself, yes…

We’re not, but I was trying to get your attention! Nottingham based band Dog Is Dead have been creating quite a buzz in the past months with their self-described ‘complicated pop for Jazz-junkies and choir-folk’
It’s always interesting to see what other people would do with your music – and so they made the stems to Glockenspiel Song available for a remix. Here’s what I came up with >>
As always, I want to know what you think !!

There’s some incredible music out there right now (broad statement huh?) – really feeling Janelle Monáe’s album right now, and the video for Tightrope is pretty special >>

Before we get into any music matters i’ve recently stumbled on ‘Insa’ again, after first reading about him in ’04 when he featured on the front of Graffitism mag. I think he’s the shit and so should you.Check out some of his stuff below or go check out his site/blog here.
Now on to the music and there is a real mix of stuff here, but feeling them all for one reason or another! All free to download so go for it!
First up is a man i can’t get enough of in the Hip Hop world right now. Loving his Album ‘Sir Lucious Left foot, son of dusty chico’ and here are two tracks off the album. The first one holds the Atlanta sound and has a classic big boi/outkast style, and though it might not sound like it on your laptop it gets pretty epic on a large system! Bang it loud.
The Second Big Boi track is The train part II and is totally different to Night Night but still has all the ATL flavour. A smooth groove to throw on at dusk on a hot sticky summer evening, so just recoup, relax, recline….
This track samples Justin Trouser snake’s (or should i say Timberlands!?) ‘My Love’ into a deep brooding disco house joint. Not sure if i’d ever play it out, but its a nice track to listen to in the comfort of your living room for sure.
Heads up to Asheard.com for this one. Hackman is dubstep producer that appeared to be left behind but is now coming through strong and for good reasons. This ‘dubstep/garage/2-step track shows of his diversity as a producer well. I want to hear more from this guy, and i’m not even a dubstep fan!
Just listen to it… awesome!
