Premiere: Lao Wai & LaMeduza – Tie Me Up (SCAR Remix)

Unbelievably hyped to welcome the mighty SCAR to our premiere spotlight today as the duo take on Lao Wai & LaMeduza’s new track for Addictive Behaviour, Tie Me Up.

Look for the release (which also features a dangerous Philth remix alongside the two wicked originals) from Sep 16th at Beatport, with other platforms following on the 30th.

Premiere: Lao Wai – Hypernormal

Delta9 Recordings are in our premiere spotlight once again as we present the premiere of Lao Wai’s new track Hypernormal. Taken from the Factories In Manchester EP (which has already picked up support from the likes of Skankandbass and Noisia), this one combines serene pad atmospheres with stark, heavy hitting D&B minimalism; whip crack snares and massive sub lines all the way.

DNB Dojo Mix Series 69: Lao Wai

Our latest exclusive guest mix comes from up and coming producer Lao Wai as he prepares to drop a fresh new EP for Delta9 Recordings. Following on from cameo appearances on DSCI4, Nurtured Beatz and Horizons (alongside Manchester’s Release), his recent solo EPs for Blu Saphir and Avantgarde have won him plaudits across the scene, notably from UKF who named him among their 18 to watch for 2018!

For his Dojo mix Lao Wai keeps things deep and rolling, blending liquid and tougher tech tunes from Monty, Calibre, Marcus Intalex, Submarine and more, and of course there are some brand new dubs from the man himself thrown in for good measure. Wicked stuff!

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

Nurtured Beatz start their year with a bang as Release steps up to drop two rough and tough techstep bangers! Sektor leads the charge, featuring a cheeky Mortal Kombat sample and a dangerous assortment of kicks, snares and bassline rumblings. This one is sure to destroy a few dancefloors!

Step Off sees the Manchester-based producer teaming up with Lao Wai to cook up another rumbling number; hefty sub, groaning mids and skittering breaks are the order of the day here. Check out the clips below and head to Bandcamp to grab this now, with general release following at all good digital stores from Feb 2nd.
