TUNE OF THE MONTH
Feel The Love feat John Newman (Fred V & Grafix remix) (Black Butter)
In between creative music studies at Bath University and entertaining crowds across the globe, Fred Vahrman & Josh Jackson find time to remix Rudimental’s monumental summer hit – and it’s a blinder. They masterfully deviate between breaks and d’n’b, and the result is flawless. With such quality so early in their careers, we can’t wait to hear what the future holds for this up-and-coming duo. So young... but so good!
Spock (Royal One Records)
Sheffield-based Sam Evans (aka Vandal) has been DJing and producing for over 11 years, winning support from dance legends Paul van
Dyk and James Zabiela. He kicks things off here with warm, reverberant synths that slowly build thetension, then unleashes the finest in crunchy electro techiness. Play this loud!
Krafty Kuts Feat Dynamite MC
Pounding (SCAM remix) (Instant Vibes)
Collaborator foursome SCAM take the first letter of producers Matt and Aston (from The Freestylers) and KK’s co-producers Chris Sargent and Simon Cranny. They’ve taken things up a notch with a monster of a bassline and an equally dirty, playful beat to match. Krafty’s new album is out now on Instant Vibes.
Time to get funky (VIM Records)
Ruido has been a member of the VIM roster right from the off. His latest release for them uses the classic old skool sample ‘It’s time to get funky’ but unfortunately, the overall result sounds out of date and the drums lack imagination. We hope for something a bit more fresh sounding next time.
Dinheiro Negro (Caballo remix) (Oh Wow Records)
If you’re after something a bit different with bags of energy and maximum bounciness this will tick all the right boxes. The downside here is a slightly disjointed, out-of-place Star Wars-themed intro. Overall, a good, fun track with an underlying message if you dig a little deeper into Gato’s lyrics.
Rennie Pilgrem feat francesca guarino
Defy (Future Jungle mix) (TCR)
Known to many as The Godfather of Breaks, Mr Pilgrem continues to push the future jungle genre with his latest offering on his own label, TCR. What really stands out are the heavenly vocals curtesy of Fransesca Guarino, complimenting gorgeous string sections and resonating synths. Thought-provoking music at its best.
Inferno (Dusted Breaks)
There’s something here for everyone: funk-ridden buildups, luscious piano breakdowns and soaring basslines that cut through you like a chainsaw. Support for this artist comes in the form of Paul Oakenfold and BT, and if that wasn’t enough, he even has his own Refracture clothing range too. Great variation in here.
DJ Love feat Leon The Pro
It’s Hot (JPOD remix) (Air Recordings)
Drop-kick drums, bobble-head bass and intelligent instrumentation is how Canada’s JPOD likes to describe his sound. We’re not too sure what that actually means, but we like it a lot! Tight production and awesome chopped-up vocals really demonstrate this artist’s production skills. Check out JPOD live at Shambhala Festival this August.
Sangers & Ra Feat N’FA
Life (Kontor Records)
Australian duo Sangers & Ra have come a long way since joining forces in 2009. Inspired by the Brisbane floods of early 2011, ‘Life’
has on a more lyrics-based approach than the usual sampled style commonly found in this genre. A very catchy hook means you’ll
be humming this until the cows come home.
