Moving song from Blacksmith, as he opens up about the loss of his father and the grieving process on Through The Melody. The track also features vocalist Deli Rowe.

Roughcut Collective – aka Ambush Tactics & Twizzy – have a new EP on the horizon and to get us in the mood, last week saw the arrival of the first video. Lions is the titular track from the EP and is produced by Afire. The EP is released on full on 7 December and pre-orders are available via Bandcamp.

Happy to be able to bring you the premiere of the latest video from one of my favourite crews, Pupils of the Clock. The Bristol-based duo put out a blinding debut album at the start of the year, with DMT being just one of the many gems to be found on there. The production comes from Richy Spitz and the video was made by This & That Media. Keep a look out for more POTC music coming soon, as well as solo projects from both Tok and Lazy Eyez. Their Timeless LP is available now via Bandcamp.

In a slight departure from my usual musical themes, today I’m sharing the most recent release from drum’n’bass pioneer, DJ Die. Having grown up in one of DnB’s birth places, DJ Die appeared regularly in my early clubbing days, both behind the decks or just attending the same clubs. This new collection goes back to that time, as Die has chosen 12 of his most definitive and influential tracks to remaster. They were all made between 1995-2000, in Bristol’s DnB golden era and helped shape the scene as it stands today. As well as the digital version, there will also be a vinyl run which will feature eight tracks on four records, alongside some previously unseen photographs. You can listen to the digital version in full below, with downloads and vinyl available via Die’s GutterFunk label. Read the rest of this entry »

Entertaining video from Res One and Illinformed, as they hit us with another gem from their recent album, A Dogs Dreams. No. Your Business features a few cameos and a lot of bobble heads, thanks to another great visual from This & That Media. A Dogs Dreams is out now on Green Brick Records.

A few months ago I was at the Bristol Harbourside Festival and one of the stages was focusing on young artists within the city. There was a hell of a lot of talent on display that day, but one of the acts that really caught my eye was a young female vocalist called Olivia rose. I think the main thing that piqued my interest was that she was singing over trap beats, something that is still quite a unique sound on the UK scene – with the exception of acts like IAMDDB who have turned it into a lucrative formula. Today saw the release of Olivia’s new EP and is a good showcase for her vocal talent, as well as a good indicator of how far she will be able to take her music as her career and confidence continue to grow. You can stream the Roses EP below and you can also grab a download over on iTunes. Read the rest of this entry »

Pupils of the Clock MC, Lazy Eyez, recently announced his new affiliation with the recently formed Bristol label, Green Brick Records. Own Wave is his first official release on the label and sets the bar pretty high for what’s to follow. The track is produced by fellow label mate, Badhabitz and the video was made by Bucket Hat Jack.

For The Love is the latest track to be lifted from the new album from Res One and Illinformed. The Bristol duo released A Dogs Dreams last week, the debut drop for Green Brick Records. Head to their store now to cop one of the last few vinyl copies, or check Bandcamp for your digital needs. The video was my Bucket Hat Jack.

Happy to see the arrival of the debut album from Green Brick Records, as Res One and Illinformed drop the long-awaited A Dogs Dreams. Featuring 11 tracks from the UK stalwarts, plus a whole host of guest spots from the likes of Inja, Verb T, Smellington Piff and Leaf Dog, as well as Res’s fellow Split Prophets, the album is a strong start for the fledgling label. You can stream the full project below, with downloads and limited edition vinyl available over on Bandcamp. Read the rest of this entry »
