After years of waiting Rockwell’s debut LP is nearly upon us, with the album dropping on CD, vinyl and digital from Nov 27th via Friction’s Shogun Audio imprint. Featuring some big collabs with the likes of Phace, Breakage and Sam Binga and a wide variety of material, there’s everything from the unashamedly pop stylings of Faces to out and out D&B bangers like Rave Cult and Itsok2behapp-e with plenty of room to take in hip-hop, grime and future bass in between. It’s a fantastic album from a man who has clearly spent time ensuring he won’t be pigeonholed.
To celebrate Obsolete Medium’s release Rockwell is throwing a launch party on Nov 25th at The Brewhouse in London featuring a special past/present/future 100% Rockwell set and sets from “undercover Shogun artists” whose identities shouldn’t be too hard to guess from the tongue in cheek names on the lineup. Full details of the event can be found on Facebook.
Best of all we’ve got a competition to run! We’ve got a signed copy of the album and two tickets to the launch party to give to one lucky winner; all you have to do is like the DNB Dojo Facebook page and send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with your name and the subject line “Rockwell Competition”. We’ll draw the winner on Monday 23rd – good luck! Please note the album will be available for collection at the event only – make sure you can get to the club if you enter!
The second round of Outlook lineup additions have just dropped, and the festival continue to up their game with a slew of great bookings. Shy FX, Congo Natty, Dub Phizix, My Nu Leng and Icicle (performing his Entropy Live show) join an already healthy initial lineup of D&B alongside tons more artists representing House, Grime, Dub, Hip-hop and more.
Tickets are selling fast so check out the official lineup announcement video below and head over here to pick up tickets while you still can!
Icicle is teaming up with Skittles to take a new project on the road called Entropy Live which promises to be something a bit different from the average DJ set. The man himself describes it as follows:
Entropy Live is based on hardware, controllers, live synthesis, sequencing and analogue mixing. There is no digital audio workstation involved and I cannot simply press play and take a step back. Sonically the show is a re-imagining of my album Entropy with some additional music from my earlier career and live improvisations. I think this show is about technical excellence as much as it is about depth, and Skittles is the embodiment of that sentiment holding a microphone.
Check out a teaser for the tour below and hit up Icicle’s website for tour dates across Europe over the next few months.
Those with their fingers on the pulse will already be aware of this, but for anyone who missed it the first lineup announcement for Outlook 2015 is out! D&B fans certainly won’t be disappointed with the selection; Noisia, Goldie, dBridge, Om Unit, The Upbeats, Enei. Skeptical, Rockwell, Mefjus, Kasta, Ivy Lab & Emperor are already on the bill alongside some of the best names in Dubstep, Grime and Hip-hop with plenty more yet to be announced.

Good news for fans of the experimental 170 sound in our nation’s capital – Ivy Lab are starting up their own club night! Entitled 20/20 LDN, the new night aims to showcase “the emerging landscape of fusions between Drum and Bass, Hip Hop, Footwork, and Future-Soul”. Not a bad aim methinks.
The first event on June 11th will feature sets from Om Unit, Hannah Faith and Deft (with support from Ivy Lab themselves). To celebrate, the team are giving away a series of free bootlegs, the first of which you can hear below as Sabre gives Jeru Da Damaja’s Come Clean a gritty halftime refix. Head over to the 20/20 LDN Facebook page for a free download of the track and check out the full event details here.
