Vivid Sounds’ latest project sees them bringing scene legend Bailey on board for a tidy new mix entitled Resurrection. Packed full of belters from the likes of Dillinja, Ruffige Kru, Paradox and Future Prophecies, the mix feels like a love letter to the bygone era of mix CDs, and it’s well worth a listen. To find out a little more we grabbed Bailey for a quick chat…
Dispatch Recordings get busy with a big 12″ featuring a pair of techy dancefloor rollers from some of the biggest names in the game. Bailey makes a rare production appearance to remix Zero T & Script’s Guessing Games, taking the atmosphere and heft of the original and turning in a tougher relick. Those drums! Punchy business.
Next up production wonder-duo SCAR return to Dispatch with Spectre, aiming for the chest with a rolling break and savage bass hits. This one’s sure to provoke a few gun fingers on the dancefloor!
Those of you who’ve kept your eyes on the Dispatch Store may already have snagged a (now sold out) advance vinyl copy. For the rest of you, check out the clips below and watch out for the full release dropping from June 23rd.
Recently relaunched V Records sister label Chronic Records is back with a bang with Warehouse Music, a 24 track compilation showcasing a great selection of D&B with a CD mixed by Bailey to boot.
Stylistically the compilation leans towards dancefloor friendly material, with rolling tech, old-school jump up and rolling modern jungle making an appearance. Bladerunner delivers a classic jungle-tinged roller on Lockoff, Capone hits us with the old skool stabs on I’ll Be Your and Command Strange’s infectious and recognisable Disco Ball finally sees release.
Elsewhere there’s tons more on show including beats from Optiv & BTK, Serum, Nitri, Need For Mirrors and L-Side. You can check out the tunes below, and the full compilation will drop on CD, vinyl and digital from Feb 24th.
Those in the Kent area who like their D&B rowdy and dancefloor-oriented would do well to check out the Mampi Swift album launch on Feburary 2nd! With an all star lineup featuring Friction, Bailey, Hazard , Brockie and Randall alongside the man himself, this one should be messy! Check out all the details on the Facebook event.
