Not content with organising a sick Just Jam lineup I've decided to compile a 30 minute mix of some of Teeza's best work (past and present), featuring a bunch of unreleased and exclusive tunes (plus the odd vocal) as another means to promote his release on Triangulum this Friday (2nd March).
01. Jamie Woon - Night Air (Temix)
02. Smirnoff Ice
05. Crystal Lake
06. Dirt Nap
11. The Set Up
14. Reign On Em
15. Dream McLean - Stop Me (Intervention)
17. B4 The Storm
18. Dream McLean - White Bread
19. Winner State Of Mind / David Banner - Swag (Acapella)
Make sure you cop "The Set Up" EP! Thanks for the support.
Tim and Barry have kindly asked me to sort out a lineup for this week's Just Jam, in the run up to Teeza's release on Triangulum.
As a result, I've invited a bunch of my DJ buddies to spin.
Spooky w/ Discarda
Score Five w/ Big Narstie
Complex w/ Ego & guests
Cable w/ Illaman
Will also have that dark Dubstep from Essex lads/label mates Fused Forces and DCult.
Faze Miyake may also make a cameo appearance at some point too.
Tune in HERE from 6pm-9pm.
Kinda gimmicky, yet dope at the same time.
If they get the waveforms running on point and smoothly, it could make things pretty interesting (and easier) for complex beat juggle patterns!
I was kindly asked to DJ for Beny Banks at a recent session for Lemonade Money, who put together this awesome video (as always!)
You can buy Benny Banks' single Bada Bing on iTunes now.
Big up Yoni all day every day!

In the run up to Teeza's The Set Up EP, which is dropping next Friday (2nd March), he's kindly agreed to put up "Neptune" - previously-unreleased instrumental - for free download.
30kbps, ID3 tagged, with Serato cue points for all you DJs too.
Some of you will know this as the beat that Kept & Konan and Voltage used for "Flows For a Joke"
Thanks to everyone who's shown support so far. Big up.
P.S. Pre-order The Set UP EP HERE

I've slept on Stalley's material over the past few weeks. I had no idea he was leaking these tunes on a regular basis. The others are worth hunting down too.
As a warm-up for his new release “Savage Journey to the American Dream”, Stalley offers a series of songs called “Songs by Me, Stalley”. The seventh is “Midnight Satori”, an original song over Block Beattaz production. Savage Journey to the American Dream is coming soon! Stalley will unveil the release date when he gets 50,000 followers on Twitter.

Here are the lastest visuals off Juicy J's Blue Dream and Lean mixtape.
I'm hoping the NoDJ version of this mixtape drops soon.

The big dawg Tim Westwood is back with his infamous Crib Sessions.
This time, it's Grime legends Newham Generals who pass through for sick freestyle. Some of the riddims on here are nuts!
Saturday 18 February 2012
...because James Bond loves Grime, obviously.
Anyhow, just a quick reminder to let you know that Teeza's forthcoming release, The Set Up EP is out on March 2nd. You can now pre-order it from 7digital.
Expect a couple of giveaways from Teeza over the next week in the run up to the release.
Hope you support the EP. Big up.

Kanye West gives Tony Williams 2 verses for this BLINK! produced collaboration. Taken from the album King Or The Fool, which is out now on iTunes.
Traveling can be harmful to your sneakers, something that international party rock DJ Vice only knows too well. As a result, he has collaborated with Jason Markk to produce a limited edition travel shoe cleaning kit.
Limited to only 380 pieces, the functional travel-themed kit includes 2 oz. Premium Shoe Cleaner (which is carry-on friendly), mini versions of both Standard & Premium wood cleaning brushes and comes housed in the classic hardshell DJ needle case, almost identical to the Shure case.
Each kit is individually numbered and comes complete with instructions illustrated like those of the airline seat-back pocket card. Each kit will retail for $35 USD, and will be available from the Jason Markk online shop, as well as fashion boutiques Colette in Paris, and Reed Space in New York.
I can't lie, I've actually slept on Jon Connor's material over the past few months. I know from previous listening that he's a great rapper, so when I saw this mixtape, containing freestyles over tracks Jay-Z's seminal classic The Blueprint, I had to download it straight away.
Hosted and executive produced by DJ Green Lantern.
Yep, I'm back with another Valentines mix.
As I more or less exhausted all the love-themed Grime tunes in 2011, this year's mix is mainly Dubstep, with a nice helping of Juke/Booty Bass towards the end. It also wouldn't be a Valentines mix without some misogyny from Project Pat either.
Overall, a mixture of different flavours here to get you in the mood for some sexy time.
01. Joker Feat. William Cartwright - On My Mind
02. Distance Feat. Alys Be - Falling
03. Drake Feat. Nicki Minaj - Make Me Proud
04. Rob Sparx Feat. Roqqert - Broke
05. Rob Sparx - Serenade
06. Jimmy Edgar - Hot, Raw, Sex (Instra:Mental Remix)
07. Synkro - That Girl
08. Bobby Caldwell - What You Won't Do For Love (DZ Remix)
09. Joker - My Trance Girl
10. Nero - Crush On You
11. Stinkahbell - Something In Your Eyes

I missed out on copping a pair of Bordeaux Spizikes, but I definitely need to grab these for the summer.
They're scheduled to drop February 24, along with other sneakers that are part of the Nike Basketball 2012 All Star Games Collection.
Hand on heart, I can honestly say this is one of favourite tunes over the past couple of years.
On a side note, why the fuck is Kanye wearing a leather skirt? I suspect it's only a matter of time before the Tumblr kids start rocking them.

The first single on Coldcut's Ninja Tune imprint was the cut-and-paste masterpiece, "Say Kids What Time Is It?"
It dropped on the 1st of February in 1987, and turned 25 years old yesterday. Those kinds folks at Ninja Tune have made this long-deleted white label available for free download.
Via Rock The Dub
Taken from Smiler's forthcoming mixtape, entitled "All I Know".
Directed by Morgan Keys.
You'll be pleased to know that I actually did those little scratches on the Sure Shot section, as well as do the mixdown. Big up Yoni & Anton for the hook up!
