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”
As if the last track wasn’t loaded enough, the blitzkrieg continues with the new one from the Durkle Disco gang. And gang is the right word as a massive 21 MCs drop eight bars a piece over a grimy beat from Unkey.
It’s only right I give them all a mention, so this is the list in the order they appear: Sirplus, Koast, Flying Monk, Scarz, Relly, Sparkerboi, Springa, Double, J Man, Prime, B’Tol, Carasel, Blunt, Dash Villz, Ceaze, Zino, Jay 0117, Redders, Kilaze, Jinxsta JX & Slowie.

Got some more freshness from Bristol for you. This time it’s the Central Spillz crew, who have linked up with another local musical outfit, Isola Dusk, to bring us Cold Place to Hide. Continue reading “Central Spillz & Isola Dusk “Cold Place to Hide””
It’s the hottest day of the year, so what better time to release the next dose of fire from the Baileys Brown album: “Greco Style” featuring Datkid, Krazy, C Strikez, Koast, Confusion and D Green.
There are a lot of producer projects that have got me hyped recently and the new album from Baileys Brown is no exception. The Bristol beatsmith has been one to watch for the last few years and has steadily carved out a name for himself, thanks to projects with the likes of Datkid, Twizzy and his own MC alter ego, DGreen.
