Fresh out today is the new AA side from DEDW8, featuring a typically tight guest spot from Conway The Machine. The video is something of a 2 for 1, with the first half showcasing Baileys Brown’s vocal mix, before dropping into 0079’s mix for the final stretch. It’s a smart move, as the contrast between the two versions strengthens the appeal, with Baileys’ heavy drums blending nicely with 0079’s glitchy, bass-heavy formula. The track is available now via the Split Prophets label and there is also a limited vinyl edition too, all of which you can find on Bandcamp.

Continue reading “Milkavelli: Sacre Bleu”
