and so it begins

The UK is sooooo hot right now, the world is waiting for the next big thing and everybody on this island is having a bash at it! Am surprised to see DJ Manny Norte throwing his two decks in the mix, its been longtime me nah see ya breadbin! Im not taking the piss but i cant help but laugh whilst watching this he’s doing that whole 90′s producer in a video thing, its hard to take him seriously…however the years of training he’s had behind the decks and in the scene he’s got the diddy pose well and truely locked! J2K and Dready complete the line-up for the single ‘Breakin all the rules’ which is out now in the UK (at Tescos apparently, genius Manny just genius!).

Woman made man so man come and thank ya gurl! Ooooo girlies in under age raves gonna be getting hype to this one. Not my cup of tea at all but im really feeling Selah on this track and in the video, shes looks ridiculously cute and in control and even though Sadie & Ms Bratt bring it, no one messes with the hook or Selahs verses. Davinche smacking it standardly on the production making this a pretty tight UK offering! Brapples, now im waiting for my thank you ;)

cancer bats sabotage

Ever since my tshirt sleeves were ripped off by the lead singers teeth last year in Tokyo i have been a keen fan of the Cancer Bats . The video to Pnuemonia Hawk sealed the deal thanks to the maple syrup drinking plaid shirt wearing, lumberjack styles of the hunky drummer. So naturally im ecstatic about the new album Bears, Mayors, Scraps & Bones but a little pissed their not playing in Manchester whilst over in the UK promoting said new release, London is not the epi centre of the UK you know! Anyhoo in honor of their new album, selective UK dates and the pipe smoking, heartthrob of a drummer i thought i’d post their cover of The Beastie Boys Sabotage which was released back in March, enjoy!


not rubbish just STUPID ;)

Finally a DOPE video for the ever banging Stupid from Redlight featuring Roses Gabor , vocal doesn’t make me wet but her stance in the video is ridicuolusly cool and its such a heavy track i don’t care and im diggin the UV theme Redlights carried into this video, finally a vision bigger than one single in this uk dance market! Out on Digital Soundboy very soon but i already got the instrumental…hmm me feels a bootleg vocal coming on ;)


cherry coke, jim henson & alex nut ;)

Midweek mix for your ass, or rather your ears unless of course you can hear with your rectum, which could be the subject of entirely different post…anyhoo music in the mix courtesy of Alex Nut (who is down at Fabric this Friday) these are the sounds and styles he’s feeling right now, in his own words ‘if you like cherry coke and Jim Henson then you will be feeling it too’ :)   Listen.download.enjoy.share :0)

Mobos Warchild - Fight for best camera angle section!

Mobos was this past week and predictable as ever, loved the location of Glasgow SECC (happy Noisia memories) i mean you can’t get more out of London than that and it was nice to see so many UK acts get awards but really thats what its all about innit, Music Of British/Black Origin…i always get confused since they scratched Drum n Bass!

Summer Tour Dates!

Haven’t been bloggin’ as ferociously as i used to lately and that is kind of down to being so blooming busy with the boys from Brighton! Touring with The Qemists this year has already took me to 5 different countries, playing around 24 gigs in support of their debut album ‘Join The Q’ which is out now! If you haven’t seen us yet there’s plenty of gigs on the way over summer, check out the tour dates in right column on blog. This little video is a snapshot of The Qemists Live so far… (more…)


Song for the day – Micachu

Curly Teeth – Micachu & The Shapes

Where did i even find this again? I honestly cant remember but i might have heard it on 6music which plays constantly in my kitchen when im home ;) Mica Levi is the singer and song-writer with a keen ear and a natural talent for music, check out more of her stuff for hoovers as instruments….DOPE! Curly Teeth chinks like china and flows smoothly in a jingle-jangled tone. I think the person knitted my over-sized art house jumper listened to this whilst getting her hair cut in an asymmetrical ‘i just got out of bed’ stylee, RAD!

Enjoy :) Jenna Ration G
