‘Meta’ from Revenu has a tribal anthem feel going on then drops in a mean bassline which warps and teases its way through this bouncy house track.

DPM is Digital Pirate Material a super cool blog and source of excellent material from the UK’s best pirate radio stations including Rinse FM, Nasty FM and Shoreditch Radio.

We were at last years Easter party and had an awesome time. There were a few issues with queuing and entry however, but Circo Loco seem to have addressed these and is assuring clubbers that a new door system is going to be in place to avoid the same problems cropping up again. Music to our ears.
With a bigger venue and an even bigger lineup, Circo Loco looks set to be one of the UK clubbing highlights of the year… grab your tickets from RA here.
It’s always a lovely treat when some exciting tunes drop into our inbox & that’s exactly how we came to listen to the latest in the SPEICHER compilation series from KOMPAKT – SPEICHER 75.
Made up of two highly emotive yet simple tracks from Denmark’s KÖLSCH, there is ‘GOLDFISCH’ on the A side – a beautiful track full of shimmering pads and progressive chords. Jump to the flip side and you find ‘ZIG’ a euphoric, disco infused track packed with melodic bass and feel good synths.
Stream both these feel good tracks below.
Almost a year later we’re returning back to Bloc for the first time to see what all the hype has been about. Saturday is the penultimate event in a sucessful series of parties which have taken the promoters back to their roots. Several friends of ours have been to a few and have been raving (literally) about how great they’ve been. They’ve been reporting that Bloc’s new venue in the depths of east london is one of the best underground venues around at the moment and the atmosphere and music have been spot on. So, on Saturday night one of the kittens is off to see Surgeon, the avant-garde techno legend who is responsible some of the best mean and dark tracks and for making the UK industrial scene what it is now. Joining the Godfather of UK techno will be Scion, giving a live performance, and reggae vocalist Tikiman. It all sounds rather promising.
If you like your techno dark and heavy stick this one on. Check back next week to find out what we thought of Bloc.
