I gave you the Soundcloud preview last week. Now here's the MP3 for your DJ-ing/listening pleasure.
Released on Seclus Jockey, which is sub label of both Seclusiasis and Slit Jockey Records, the release includes the original version, as well as a 'Devil Mix', which is all synth and bass for those who are not familiar with the term.
To get both tracks for free, all you have to do is pay with a tweet or a Facebook post to help hype it up online.
Thanks to everyone who has downloaded it so far, and special thanks to Dev79, Starkey and El Carnicero for putting this out online.

Being someone who regularly travels across the UK and in Europe, I've learnt there is definitely an art to packing wisely.
The good folks at LV have put together this informative video, demonstrating how to effectively pack your luggage. I have to say, I never knew about the double-folding shirt combo!

(Gives me an excuse to post a pic of Rhythm Division)
Mashups, VIPs, and bootlegs have always been a part of Grime music. Cast your minds back to 2002/2003 and you may remember all 3,207 versions of Eskimo and Pulse X, not mention the hundreds of white label bootlegs/DIY re-edits of tunes.
I fired up Ableton the other day and decided to have another go at making a re-edit, this time mashing together two of my favourite riddims - Rebound X's "Rhythm & Gash" and Musical Mob's "Pulse X". The end result? Pulse RBX.
I'm pleased to announce that this will be dropping over the weekend as a free download via Slit Jockey Records and Seclusiasis, aka Seclus Jockey - a new label from Dev79 and Starkey which specialises in free music.
The release also includes a Devils Mix, but in the meantime you can peep the original via the Soundcloud player above.

Once again, apologies for the lack of posts on here recently. I've currently been running around Europe DJ-ing for this cat called Willy Moon. He makes some pretty good music.
Anyhow, I wanted to bring to your attention the latest release on Triangulum, which will be dropping next week!
Consisting of 4 dancefloor-orientated instrumentals, The Tangerine EP comes courtesy of Birmingham's SRC, who has made a name for himself within the Grime scene with his quirky and melodic, video game-inspired productions.
Having already released music on labels such as Butterz, No Hats No Hoods, and the legendary Numbers imprint, it's safe to say he's certified.
Peep the snippets below for a taster, and make sure you follow SRC on Twitter
The EP will be available from the usual spots (Juno, Beatport, Boomkat, iTunes etc) on Friday 29th June. thanks to everyone who has supported the label so far. More music to come soon!
Bonus! Big Narstie has also vocalled one of the tunes. Download it below!

It may not be summer weather here in the UK, but don't let that put you off downloading this sick mixtape from Jazzy Jeff & Mick Boogie.
Packed full of classic cuts, it's the perfect soundtrack to BBQs, lazy afternoons, and everything you'd associate with summer.
Extra kudos for including Ryde Or Die Chick, Virtual Insanity, 1nce Again, and for reuniting with The Fresh Prince on the intro too!

Only just got around to downloading this - 14 mastered instrumentals produced by Clams Casino, who as you know has worked with the likes of A$AP Rocky, Lil' B, XV, Mac Miller and others on. I have to agree with Khal, this is worth the download for the mastered instrumental of "Bass" alone.
With the exception of classics such as Wildstyle, The Freshest Kids, Freestyle: The Art of Rhyme, or even the UK's own Pioneers documentary, there are very few Hip Hop features that have been worth watching, or at least given a detailed insight into the culture.
Directed by Ice-T, Something From Nothing: The Art of Rap follows the journey of rap through its progressive eras to shed light on its growth into a globally dominating force. With appearances from Eminem, Kanye West, Dr. Dre, Nas, KRS-One, Snoop Dogg and Doug E Fresh to name a few, this looks like it'll be an interesting and solid documentary.
The film is currently slated for a June 15 release in the US. Check below for a few teasers...
