Continuing the Lord Of The Mics 3 hype sessions, Sox has decided to call out Kozzie, also dissing Tre Mission in the process.
I can't front, Sox has got some pretty good bars. However, he does seem to lack the hype and energy that Kozzie has. This could be very interesting...
I agree with Hit The Floor though, a three-way clash between Tre Mission, Kozzie and Sox would be dope.

Just a quick post to let you know about my upcoming gigs this week...
Wednesday (tomorrow), you can catch me at The Roundhouse in Camden with Yasmin for the iTunes Festival. We'll be supporting Wretch 32 and Example.
Thursday, I'll be supporting House of Pain at the Scala in Kings Cross. Buy tickets HERE
Friday, I'll be spinning in Manchester at One Central. The lineup for this looks dope; guaranteed it'll be a messy one with the Murkage lot too!
Saturday, I'll be at Global Gathering with Yasmin, and then it's off to Awesomefest in Leicestershire to do a back to back set with my boy DJ Switch.
Lastly, I'll be at Camp Bestival with Yas on the Sunday. Hopefully Monday will be my day of rest.
Monday's show is now up for download.
This week featured new releases from Benga, Pearson Sound, Spyro & DOK, plus unreleased and forthcoming material from D-Cult, Teeza, Numan, Tanka, Catacombs, and yours truly...

Here's the latest After Hours set from Logan Sama. The levels are high on this one...
Remember, D Double E's "Bluku! Bluku! EP" is now available to purchase from iTunes & all other good outlets.
BONUS! Here's the Bluku! Bluku! music video...
Fresh off the back of their 001 release, which saw support from the likes of Rod Azlan and Mistajam, Family Tree’s second release features newcomer Ed Cheeno and Dubstep duo The Squadron, which will be available this Friday (29th July) from all good digital outlets.
Consisting of a warping bassline and vocal samples, Stay True is a sweet little roller, which will no doubt sound epic on a loud system.
TREE-002: The Squadron - Stay True by FamilyTreeRecords
The B-side comes courtesy of Ed Cheeno, who delivers a warm, spacey-style track; complete with lush synths and warm texutres - just in time for those summer nights.

P.S. Make sure you follow the label's boss NikkiAcute">Nikki on Twitter for more updates.
Here's the first single from Smoke DZA's RollingStoned, which is due out August 30th. Definitely feeling this.
Via Nah Right.
P.S. Will post up a tagless version once it leaks.

Whilst I was a big fan of Sam Raimi's movies (with the exception of Spider Man 3. That sucked), this looks like it could be a decent reboot. As long as there's no cheesy dance scene, I'll be happy.
P.S. Venom needs his own movie.
...so I started a new show on Sub FM this Monday...
I'd been toying with the idea of carrying on with the podcasts for a while, but due to other projects/touring/etc, I never really had the time to sit down and produce a polished, 60+ minute mix on a regular basis. I figured I needed some kind of motivation/purpose to do this.
The opportunity arose to have a show on Sub Fm, and I thought this would be the perfect plan. Broadcasting every Monday from 12pm to 2pm GMT, expect to hear a selection of Dubstep/Grime/Electronica (and some Hip Hop) that I'm currently feeling, showcasing new music, classic material, and stuff that's also currently available to purchase.
The first show is now up for download, and features a varied selection of all things 140bpm, along with a few tasty dubs too.
Make sure you also subscribe to my iTunes podcast, where they will also be uploaded every week. You can then get them delivered to your digital doorstep on the regular. Simples.

Following on from my previous post about Juke music, and the tune which I recently made with Fused Forces, I thought I'd share this with you lot...
Footwork Jungle Vol.2 by Phillip D Kick
I remember seeing this online a few weeks ago and thinking to myself, "ahh, I need to post this!" Alas, I totally forgot. Anyhow, this chap called Phillip D Kick has nicely reworked a bunch of classic Jungle tunes into a set of footwork-friendly anthems. Amongst them you can find the likes of Adam F's "Circles", Q Project's "Champion Sound", Omni Trio's "Renegade Snares", and even LTJ Bukem reworked into a frenzy of skippy 808 drum patterns.
Footwork Jungle Vol.1 by Phillip D Kick
Although the tunes have reached their download limit on Soundcloud, you can still download Vol. 1 and Vol. 2 via Mediafire. Expect to hear some of these on my radio show next week!
Chip Tha Ripper enlists the help of Like from Pac Div for the Blended Babies production. I'm really feeling the 80's vibes on this.
P.S. Pac Div's album really needs to come out sometime soon. Just saying...
I had the pleasure of meeting Chiddy Bang at Wakestock the other week; they're pretty swell guys.
Anyhow, this video sees them utilising Flux Pavilion's "I Can't Stop". It's pretty nice.
Loving the eerie vocals and percussion on this one.
Taken from Dam Mantle's "WE" ep, which will be released on GETME! records on July 25th.

One genre that's caught my attention over the past couple of years has been Juke/Footwork music. Whilst I'd never really dabbled in producing any, I've recently been inspired to start experimenting since hearing Addison Groove's music, which bridges the gaps between Miami Bass, Juke and Dubstep.
There's something about rapid 808 drums and chopped vocals that really appeal to me. Here's something I recently cooked up with my good friends Fused Forces

Backpacks are very handy things...so much so that I desperately need to purchase another one for everyday use.
Showcasing some clean designs, Herschel Supply Co. come correct with their 2011 Fall/Winter collection, which was unveiled at Bread & Butter Berlin the other week...
It's definitely not about the bum bags ("fanny packs" to you Americans) though...
Logan keeps smacking it with these After Hours sets.
BONUS! Peep this one with rival, Kozzie & Discarda too. Madness...

K-Swiss have struck marketing gold using Kenny Powers from Eastbound And Down in their new campaign. There are some proper FLOL moments in this video, in particular: 1:02 and at 1:31
There are a load more floating about online, and are well worth checking out if you're bored at work.

Shouts to FreshNerd, who has just released a new beat tape...on cassette!
Ugly Boombox is the first of the limited edition series of cassettes available from 100 Akres (only 30 available...hand numbered). All of these brand new bangers are inspired by big drums and my fetish for flipping samples. Basically anything that I'd want to hear on Radio Raheem's boombox is on this project. The sound bites throughout the tape also go on to explain the importance of the boombox to our culture. Experience a beat tape the way it was originally intended....on tape.
For those that don't own a tape deck or walkman, there will be a FREE digital version included with purchase.
Check out a sneak preview below:
It's times like this I was I could make it San Diego's Comic Con; they get all kinds of dope collector's items, such as these limited Kid Robot x Family Guy toys.
Featuring a glow-in-the-dark design, both mini Brian and Stewie (accompanied by Rupert) are limited to 400 each, and will be priced at $11 USD. The release date is July 21, 2011.

Rival comes through with a strong 10 track EP. According to the internets, the reason this release is called "Biscuits" is because that's his favourite food. It's still yet to be confirmed whether he prefers digestives, custard creams, hobnobs, or jammy dodgers....I digress...
Whilst there are plenty of riddims to satisfy the Grime/Bass music heads, Rival's thrown in a few quality Hip Hop freestyles for good measure. I was pleasantly surprised to find that he chose to spit over the instrumental of Common's "The Light". Overall, it's a solid release.
P.S. Remember you can still purchase Rival's "Lock Off The Rave" from iTunes. The Darq E Freaker remix has been causing mayhem, so make sure you check that out too.
Just stumbled upon this video...
I had no idea DJ Khalil used Reason 4.0 to make this beat. It's also mad to hear how those screaming sounds were made just using a guitar and effects.

2010 Japanese DMC Champ DJ Blu utilizes Scratch Live and Ableton's recent creation, throwing down a live remix of Travis Barker's "Can A Drummer Get Some".
Awesome use of scratch drumming, live recording and layering, and some mad stuff involving slowing the turntable down, matching the project tempo to it, and then throwing a beat juggle over the top.
Headhunter comes correct with this cheeky Spank Rock re-work...

Resident Advisor have just started a short series of videos, focusing on various cities/music scenes. Kicking things off with a feature on Bristol's Dubstep and House scenes, this video includes interviews with the likes of Pinch, Peverelist and Appleblim, as well as Hyetal and Julio Bashmore. The filming and editing on this is superb.
Oh, I didn't even know until watching it that Rooted Records has sadly closed its doors too. It's crazy to think that when I lived there in '02 to '05, there were a whole wealth of record spots throughout the city. Sad times.

Benga's been a rather kind chap recently... Having recently put up bangers such as "Electro West", "Another Snatch" and "Smack Your Bitch Up" for free download, he's also just liberated "Midnight".
Benga - Midnight by iambenga
Now all he needs to do is put "26 Basslines VIP" up for download, and I'll be an even happier man.
Big up Benga!
I recently made this Frank Ocean remix, and upon gaining 2,000 followers on Twitter, I decided to give it away for free. The original version was awesome, but I felt it could have been beefed up a little bit, you know?
Oh, it's a .wav file too, so all you DJs/audiophiles will be happy :)
I hope you enjoy it. Big up.
