The mighty Zero T lands on CIA this month for the first of the label’s 25th anniversary celebrations, and we’re hyped to bring you the premiere of Radicall Step! Keeping things crisp and understated, this is a deep, jazzy stepper with just enough sizzle…one to keep the dancefloor simmering. Watch out for the EP coming Jan 29th at all good stores!
Something different, you say? Look no further: we’ve got forward-thinking innovation meets cool finesse on Lemon D’s What’s Up, from Metalheadz’s 1997 Metalheadz Boxset 1, a noticeably leftfield album from the iconic label. Lemon D has shown a knack for crafting unconventional works for much of his career, and this track is an impressive example of his originality.
This classic features an onslaught of percussive hits at all the right times and tones, demonstrating the brilliance of an experimental approach over the backdrop of techstep proficiency. Lemon D’s blending of avant-garde arrangement with jazz sounds in What’s Up produces a distinctive feel and expression; timeless and refreshing.

Eagled eyed (or should that be eagle eared?) followers of the Dojo podcast should recognise this one, featured on episode 24 as a dubplate…so obviously we’re extremely pleased to now present the premiere of Geety’s In Love Before! Dropping this Friday on Nu Venture Records, this is a deep, emotional slice of liquid D&B from a Brighton based producer we’re very much hoping to hear more from. Yes yes!
Polish liquid producer Skeletone is in our premiere spotlight today as we present his super funky track Sultry Day, taken from his brand new EP for Soul Trader Records. Jazz licks and crispy clean drum break goodness make for a playful, light hearted track with a summery vibe. Tasty!
