I've been sitting on this for a while. Originally it was just for my own DJ sets, but thought I'd fling it out there for free download. All you have to do is like the Facebook page and it's yours, along with all my other edits and remixes.
I'm slowly getting back into the swing of posting regularly. Last week was a bit mental due with DJ-ing, submitting next week's show, and general life.
Anyhow, you can now stream/download my mix from 23rd July, featuring StayFresh who hosted the last 30 minutes.

For those who may not be aware, I now have a bi-weekly residency on BBC Radio 1Xtra, as part of the #SixtyMinutes lineup on Mistajam's show. I'm on every other Wednesday, rotating with the one and only Logan Sama.
The first mix of the month is more eclectic, with Trap/Hip Hop, Bass Music, and some Grime. The second mix of the month is 100% Grime, with special guests hosting the last 30 mins.
Tonight, I'll be on air from 9pm with West Midlands' very own StayFresh, who will be hosting my set. Expect a lot of new music and big bars.
Also, be sure to check out my past mixes, which you can grab from the Soundcloud player below.

…So after what feels like a lifetime, I've finally got round to updating a few bits on here, and made a promise to myself to start blogging again.
One of the reasons why I stopped was that with other social sites such as Twitter, Instagram, Soundcloud and Facebook, I could still reach a whole range of people with my music, mixtapes and updates. On top of that, I felt that there was nothing left to really blog about. Most of the posts on here used to simply regurgitate material from more established blogs, so I figured "what was the point?"
It also became a chore, and having spent the last couple of years touring with other artists, spending more time making remixes and tunes, and also playing out, I lost the motivation.
Saying that, it's always nice to have one central hub for everything, and after taking some time away, I've started to feel more proactive about posting again. Plus, with a regular spot on the BBC, it makes sense to push my sets here as well, given that people still stumble upon this site from time to time.
It might be only just one post a day sometimes, but I promise to bring you more rants, reviews, music updates and random shit.

Following on from Essential Warm Up Vol. 3, I've decided to further explore the realm of video DJ-ing. This time around, I've put together a video tribute to one of the greatest rap groups of all time - A Tribe Called Quest, containing their entire video discography, plus a couple of interviews thrown in to break things up a little bit.
I hope you enjoy watching it as much as I did putting it together. If you visit the Vimeo page you can also download the mix to stick on your mobile device/laptop/tablet/etc.
BONUS! The Notorious B.I.G. "Party And Bullshit" (DJ Cable Remix)
I made this a while back, and decided to upload it to pay tribute the other week for March 9th. If you like it, you can purchase the clean, dirty and instrumental versions all for £1 from my Bandcamp page.
That's a pretty good deal if you ask me!

It's been a while since I dropped Volume Two, but here's the latest instalment of the Essential Warm Up series.
Keeping with the Hip Hop/R&B theme, I decided to put together a seleciton of mid-to-late 90's and 00's tracks to make your working lives easier from 10-11pm. Those five hour sets can be a killer, sometimes...
As usual, the mix has minimal tags, so it's club-friendly. We'll be moving into other genres soon, with other League members contributing to the series.
Whether you want something to help kickstart your night, or simply listen to whilst you're getting ready to go out, we've got you covered! I hope you enjoy the mix.
BONUS! Here's the video version for you to watch (and download).
Slighty different tracklist. Same great taste
Forgot to post this the other week...
Here's a slowed-down trippy edit of Mrs. Carter's latest club smash from yours truly...
Hope you dig it.

Happy New Year, everyone... I hope you all had a great Festive Season.
I've decided to be a lot more proactive with bootlegs/edits/remixes (and original releases) this year, so here goes...
Drake's new track Trophies has been making some noise 'pon di internet this past week; even more so since Migos jumped on it. I thought I'd have a go at remixing the track, making it more suitable for the Trap/EDM crowd. The end result is this...
