Boxcutter - Arecibo Message - Planet Mu

Boxcutter aka Barry Lynn from Northern Ireland has been a priority act for the mighty Mu since he burst onto their radar in 2006. Arecibo Message is his third full length album for the left field label and it's a dub laden adventure full of accomplished edits and a forest of bleeps and noises to excite the synapses. Take an hour off and have a paddle.



Soiree - It's Disco - Bear Funk

It's disco! You plus you plus me! We love Bear Funk and their low slung space age modern disco funk and Soiree cement our addiction with the fresh 39th chapter in the history of the label. Four tracks of brilliant flared electronic disco voyages. Our only complaint - that they're too short!



Viro & Rob Analyze - Party - Bombeatz Music

Viro & Rob Analyze are two hot producers based in Florida. Here they give us Party out on BombBeatz Music. This is a fidget monster jacking all over the place. Expect Herve, The Count and the rest of the fidget massive on this one!


Funky Jacking Progressive:

Alex Guesta - Lethal Industry (Club Mix) - Sounds Good

Well the original Lethal Industry was huge thanks to Tiesto. Now Alex Guesta gives it a work over with some funky jacking progressive beats with a hint of electro over the top. The Break is a killer with that legendary riff!


Disco Electro:

Shazam - Pool Party 2008 - Bang Gang

KISSY SELL OUT & ANNIE MAC PLAYLIST! Both the radio rave generals on BBC are smashing Bang Gang 12inches releases left right and centre. This Australian label brings the funk with energetic full on house music that reminds us of classic French disco days. Saturday night every day of the week.



Dumb Dan - Lights Are Low (Stonebridge Re-Edit) - Stoney Boy

Big big funky tribal house track here from this hot remix by Stonebridge, The original is a winner and the other 4 mixes too. Dumb Dam - Lights Are Low on Stonebridge's own label. This has Ibiza all over it.

Tech House:

Koen Groeneveld - Wake Turbulence (Spektre Remix) - Abzolut

Deep Tech House:

Seph Vier - Get A Blow (Original Mix) - Raccoon Records

Progressive Tech House:

Nick Olivetti - Nickel - Fish Rec Elite

Loving this track from Nick Olivetti! A wicked combo of deeper tinged progressive and tribal tech house with an uplifting synth hook, quirky electro laced bass and the production is really clean and crisp so will sound great on a big hefty system! Alex Young's mix is also worth checking!

Tribal Funky Techno:

Rantan - Acid Basics - Stars Traxx

Expect Hixxy, Stu Allen, Dougal, Gammer and all the true hardcore generals to drop this throughout the summer so don't miss out people.


Dutch Gabba:

State Of Emergency - Call It Music - Raw Fuel

Raw Fuel lay down the incendiary device with three monster Dutch style gabba sing a long anthems. Call It Music is full of distorted rap samples and a dramatic female vocal in the breakdown that turns darkness into daylight. Big anthem for the Nightmare In Rotterdam ravers. Unleash the adrenalin!

AMC & Neil Mac ft. Bird - Good Love - FF Records

SUMMER ROLLER! Huge debut release on TID drum and bass department from the brand new FF Records and we are all over it. Proper soulful vocals float over boxy fresh rolling beats in a perfect fashion. This is BIG!
AMC drops four amazing cuts that lovers of proper drum and bass and Hospital Records will be snapping up. SECRET WEAPONS!



Loxy - Green Destiny - Digital Soundboy Recordings

LOXY! Shy FX signs up a pure roller here that reminds us a bit of the massive Clarendon by Breakage that came out on DSR back in 2007. Old skool slow motion ragga vocal samples and relentless sub bass peppered with original drum and bass breakbeat fills and energy make this militant cut one for all the headz and dark soldiers. Check the amen feast on the flip yeah.



Dilemn - The Pressure - Hardcore Beats

Loving this double header from that man Dilemn! He has unleashed some absolute monsters on TID in recent weeks and this is no exception.
