New cut from the Potent Funk camp, as Bristol duo, DEDW8, team up with London production force, OPUS, for this grimy banger. The video was made by Max Kelan Pearce Productions. Indigo is available now from all the usual spots.
More fire on this already scorching day, thanks to the new track from one of my favourite Bristol producers, DROG Beats, as he delivers the outrageously filthy, DROP. You might remember talking up DROG before, because he was the guy behind some of Buggsy’s most memorable beats and he made most of them when he was only 15. Talent for real. Streams of DROP are also available.
A while ago I thought about starting a series of exclusive mixes for my blog, so I put the feelers out and got some great responses, but failed to capitalise on it at the time. However today, I can bring you what will hopefully be the first of a series, thanks to Bristol legend and all-round asset to the music scene, Koast. The Durkle Disco boss has knocked up a wild ride through what feels like a global showcase of grime, UK funky, dubstep and beyond, thanks to tracks emanating from the UK, Holland, France, Ghana, Nigeria, Burkina Faso, Congo and Brazil. It weighs in at 64 tracks and 96 minutes, kicking off with Bristol favourite, Snowie, before getting stuck into tracks from Kojey Radical, Naira Marley, Roska, Snowy, Zed Bias, Gabriel Waves and a whole lot more. You can find the full tracklist below, as well as the mix itself. As well as Tom’s Durkle Disco involvement and his DJ sets, Tom has also been a key player in the rise of SWU.FM, the new Bristol radio station which begins broadcasting shortly. For more information on what’s in store, you can find them on all socials as @swu.fm. Continue reading “Koast: Exclusive Mix”
Ever since PENGSHUi announced their formation a few years back, it has become clearer with each new release and live performance, that these were three seasoned artists who had found the ideal home for their respective crafts. Illaman, Prav and Fatty decided to carve their own niche at the riotous frenzied point at which punk and grime meet, drawing on the parallels between the two genres to devastating effect. Now with the arrival of their debut album, the trio have cemented their position as one of the most rousing and important acts to emerge from the UK in recent times. The self-titled debut is a perfect encapsulation of everything that PENGSHUi stand for, packed to the rafters with the raw energy of their live shows, the humour and sheer entertainment of Illaman’s lyricism, the fierce antiestablishment spirit that permeates both punk and grime, and the absolute FUCK YOU attitude of three artists who are making exactly the type of music they want, because they can.

Another frenzied lyrical assault from Vulgatron, as he continues to pave the way for his new solo career in the post-Foreign Beggars era. Blind is produced by Oddprophet and it’s available to stream/download via Never Say Die Records.
Time to up the tempo as Vulgatron hits us with another blitzkrieg of a track. Blackout is the second single from the Foreign Beggars founder, as he teams up with BadKlaat for the latest audiovisual onslaught.
Keeping the high octane vibes going, I thought I would share the new video from punk-grime trio, PENGSHUi. For Leave It they have teamed up with hip hop, DnB and all round production powerhouse, Pete Cannon, resulting in another wild audio escapade. The video was made by Krupa. Leave It is also available to stream/download on the usual platforms.
A very strong start to Vulgatron’s (Foreign Beggars) solo venture as he unleashes his new track – Deadman. It’s a riotous collision of dubstep and grime, backed up with some hefty production from Mark The Beast and Nitepunk. The video was made by Tarnish Vision. Stay tuned for more from Vulgatron coming soon.
Mad track here from UZ and Stooki Sound, as they draft in the ample talents of Orifice Vulgatron and Onoe Caponoe for Bang. The track is just one of the gems to be found on UZ’s Layers LP, which was released earlier in the year on Quality Goods Records.
Big sounds from Durkle Disco representative Unkey, as he off loads a video for Dead & Bury. Taken from his EP of the same name, the filthy beat is laced with some absolute killers from Dread Mc and Illaman. The video was shot by Jay0117. You can grab a digital copy of the EP now over on Bandcamp.
