Rooted Recordings is back in June with another sparkling release. They’ve invited Total Science to rejig “Cargo Dub” by Ed:it, which also came out on Rooted a couple of months ago. The remix, fresh out of the C.I.A studio is an absolute belter. Out now on vinyl and digital Friction played it as his Friction’s Fire last week. Maybe you would be interested in posting on it. It’s a good track for the summer.
Record label NB Audio (NBA) has launched to release its first major EP.
‘Dark Shadow’ EP and video is available for download from April 29, 2013 and is the first release from UK DJ / Producer duo, Snap Shot, a newly-formed musical collaboration between established music artists Mark XTC and Microcosm.
NB Audio (NBA) is a new Manchester-based, UK alternative electronica dance label, representing UK and international independent artists from across the Drum & Bass, Dub Step and Techno genres.
Offering five distinct tracks, and featuring title track vocals from Manchester-based MC Tonn Piper, ‘Dark Shadow,’ embodies a dark minimal style which is a signature of the NBA label, whilst also presenting more experimental sounds like ‘Blow Yer Mind’; a house track with strong tech influences.
DJ / Producers Mark XTC and Microcosm, have individually been driving forces behind the North’s underground music culture, with Mark, being best known for co-founding DA INTALEX partnership with Marcus Kaye, and presenting the drum and bass radio show on Galaxy 102 (formerly Kiss 102), and Microcosm AKA Philip Lomas, as one of the founding members of Manchester production collective, North Base.
Tonn Piper is a resident at Manchester’s Warehouse Project, APE and Metropolis, hosting DJs such as Andy C, DJ Hype, Scratch Perverts, Stanton warriors, Freestlyers, Goldie, Roni Size, Skream and Benga. Tonn, who is best known as the front man of band ‘Day Walkers’, also makes regular appearances on BBC Radio 1 and 1Xtra and more recently toured with Black Grapes’ Shaun Ryder.
