DNB Dojo Podcast #26 – Dec 2018

Just in time for Christmas, Hex is back with the last podcast of 2018, and it’s a bit of a belter! 90 minutes of brand new music including tech smashers from Invadhertz & MISSIN, liquid rollers from Cnof & Skydata, weighty steppers from Ground & Spook and halftime melters from Fractale & Monty.

There’s also new music from Hex himself in the form of his remix of K2T – Reckoning, and K2t & Manu return the favour on a new remix of Hex’s This Snare. Last but by no means least, there are dubs inside from Dialectical and Shudder…what more could you want over the holiday season?

As always you can check out the podcast via Soundcloud below or head to Youtube or iTunes to stream. You can also grab a download from Google Drive.

Premiere: Monika – Bumble Bot

Terra Firma celebrate their first chapter this month with a big new compilation entitled Tempus I, featuring sixteen cuts from the back catalogue alongside four new tracks, so naturally we had to bag an exclusive…

Monika steps up on one of the fresh beats, delivering an unusually dancefloor focused workout from the usually liquid-leaning producer. Driven along by a bubbling synth line and crispy breaks, Bumble Bot bears all the hallmarks of a Monika production in terms of detail and finesse, but filtered through a darker lense for a potent slice of club weaponry. Yes please! Check it out and watch for the LP coming Dec 28th at digital outlets.
