(Rob ‘Stereo M.c’s’ Birch – Old Queens Head/Fabric/Various – UK)
Well produced and alternative.
(Profisee – Lucky Me/The Ivy/Various – Scotland)
Completely hard to define, but suitably nuts. Perhaps a little noisy and messy for all dancefloors, but interesting listening to those with ears tuned to the alternative. Promising and interesting.
(Domu –Sonar Circle/CoOp/Deviations/Various – UK)
Some crazy shit right here. 8/10.
(Mike Stukes – Mystic Vibes Radio – NYC)
Fuck me! I feel like ive been sucked down a worm hole the wrong way round. This tune will leave you feeling melted like a cheese fondueux
(Loui Slipperz – Task Force/Kung Fun/Various – UK)
Finely tuned textures.
(Dj A La Fu: VaVa/Big Dada Records/Sub Club/SHMU FM – Glasgow/Worldwide)
I really like it.
(Jonny Ackroyd – Various – Leeds/Sheffield)
Big, classic hip-hop breaks smothered with heavy heavy bass.
(Shuffle – Mother Bar/93 Feet East/Various – UK)
That’s some twisted, nasty future shit – I like it and will terrorise my listeners with it..
(Global SoulJah – BBE Radio/Scanner 96.6FM/Various – Barcelona)
Crazy but I did it, freaky shit!
(Kid Kanevil – First Word/Doctors Orders/Various – UK)
Really like this Optikatechniqua stuff.
(Duncan Smith – Sony Playstaton Audio Sync/Various – UK)
Pretty nice, if a little crazy first thing in the morning.
(Disorda ‘Suspect Packages’ – Various – UK)
Very fuckd up. But I like it!
(Dave Spencly – Sir Vinyl/Various – South Coast)
Very clever stuff, took a couple of listens to get into but I really like it.
(Danny Delta – Substance/Headshell/Various – UK)
Wicked, will be playing this tonight.
(Brendan Webb – Southpaw/Various – Australia)
Not bad, a little bit too bonkers for us but reminds us an a dirtier and harder Depthcharge.
(One Deck Pete and Popular – Steroid Abuse/Vibe Bar/Various – UK)
Wicked! Feeling the nasty drums and old school 303 action. Will play whenever possible†(prob more for radio), heavy.
(Ben Morris – Kudos Distribution/Various – UK)
Bit mad I like the breakbeat bit real Warp Records sound
(DJ Stoaty – The Tuesday Club/Various – Sheffield)
