Whittyboy releases new music!

Whittyboy is back with a dope EP

              Whittyboy

 

Originally hailing from Leeds, Bingo Bass welcome the currently London-based Wittyboy with a double A-side label debut to blow the winter cobwebs away.

With a background in grime, he gained respect as an MC, featuring on BBC 1Xtra and receiving air play from Mary Anne Hobbs amongst other radio DJ's, before turning his hand to production, remixing for names including Roll Deep, Craig David and Estelle, and receiving support from key figures in the scene such as DJ EZ, DJ Q, Jamie Duggan, Shaun Banger Scott, FB & Zibba and more, which quickly led to him becoming one of the key players in the bassline scene, with regular appearances up and down the country alongside features on compilations and mixes by the Ministry of Sound, Pure Garage, Fabriclive & Pure Bassline.

‘Working With’ and ‘Burning’ are two perfect examples of the uniquely developed sound that Wittyboy has developed over his long and illustrious career, with recent releases through Crucast and Chip Butty Records demonstrating his continued popularity and relevance within the bass music scene in 2018. A truly exciting addition to the label – gunfingers at the ready!

Ferreck Dawn X Robosonic - In Arms

Another One By Defected

              Ferreck D & Robosonic

 

Oh Defected have another banger? How many times have you asked this question to yourself or to a friend... in 2018 alone??? Cos for us, we have asked this a few times already this year and as usual, the answer is YES, yes they do have another banger.

The latest banger to come from the lovable Defected Records is ‘In Arms’. A dancefloor smash which really just has the sole purpose of getting you onto the dance floor and shaking what your mama gave you and more. This super sick track is courtesy of Dutch Producer Ferreck Dawn & German representative, Robosonic. These guys have decided to go head on with each other and produce and absolute banger which makes it to your play lists all day long.

Apparently during the Defected Australia tour, many fan favourites on the tour were giving this one a bit of a play during sets and it popped off down under. So we think you should be paying close attention to this.

Loud Luxury - Sex Like Me ft DYSON

Shuffling & Singing

              Loud Luxury

 

Looking for a one way ticket to Singalong Avenue and shuffle street? Then we suggest you get your best shuffler shoes on and hop on board as Loud Luxury have released an absolute banger in Sex Like Me

The vocals hit you straight away as the song starts and they are soulful and smooth, gliding over the beat for the entire song effortlessly without overpowering or being drowned out by the instruments. The lyrics are a bit saucy and sexual with the base of the track being “she can’t sex like me” but we are sure these cheeky lyrics will only have you hitting high notes faster than you normally would.

The beat has a nice blend of Dance and EDM elements but at the same time is radiating a bit of soulfulness which means it’s catering to as much ears as possible, something not all tracks can do. We need to be able to appreciate how dope this track is as we are sure this one will be all over the festivals and clubs over the summer.

Charles - Relax My Mind

Smooth Vibe coming with this one

              Charles

 

Following ‘Darker Shade of Green’, which starred his inimitable baritone, Charles’ new track is a lyrically introspective, yet tonally sultry, affair. ‘The minimalist production, comprised of a shuffling beat, guitar licks reminiscent of Jai Paul, and an atmospheric and ethereal synth line, is supplied by up and coming producer Mathias Boman.

It’s reminiscent of Prince in his prime, and perfectly compliments the quiet power Charles generates through his gorgeously restrained falsetto. Between ‘Relax My Mind’ and ‘Darker Shade of Green’ we really get to experience the breathtaking range of Charles’ voice, and it’s undeniable that he’s destined for great success.

Check out this super dope track and let us know what you think

The Magician - Love Break

The Magician pulls one out of the hat again!

              The Magician

 

The Magician has unveiled his latest track, an ode to everlasting love featuring the French language vocals of Belgian rapper Hamza.

The new single, is a lilting, summery slice of dancehall-tinged RnB featuring steel drums and a soft, bouncing bassline; a natural stylistic continuation of the sounds of ‘Las Vegas’, The Magician’s most recent creative output. The track marked a slight change in musical direction for the Belgian producer, previously known for his bombastic pop hits with the likes of Lykke Li and Years & Years.

“I’ve been working in a lot of different studios, exploring different genres of music with some incredible people,” said The Magician. “The result of which has reignited my passion to make music, and inspired me to share more love and emotions through it.”

Part future-facing RnB, part classic French rap, Hamza hails from The Magician’s native Belgium. He’s been steadily increasing in popularity in the French music scene, with shows at Palais de Tokyo’s events space YoYo and a solo show at L’Olympia in Paris coming up. Speaking about his music, Pitchfork said “Hamza makes instantly memorable music that transcends language and communicates feeling.”

Having first experienced mainstream success with his European no.1 remix of Lykke Li’s ‘I Follow Rivers’ in 2012, The Magician’s 2013 track ‘Sunlight’ featuring the vocals of Olly Alexander from Years& Years, peaked at #7 in both the Belgian and UK charts, garnering over 55 million combined streams in the process. With Top 10 hit status achieved, The Magician has spent time cultivating his own live events and record label aptly named ‘POTION’ where new singles ‘Together’ and ‘Shy’ quickly followed, before his 2017 releases ‘Tied Up’ with Julian Perretta, and ‘Slow Motion’ with TCTS.

The Belgian DJ has played at a diverse range of clubs including Pacha, Space, Hï, Ushuaia and Amnesia in Ibiza. Since launching Potion, he’s brought the event series to Ministry of Sound,Showcase Paris, Exchange LA, Electric Brixton, New York’s Webster Hall and last year, hosted his very own Potion stage at Tomorrowland. The release of ‘Love Break’ follows a busy Miami Music Week for The Magician; he hosted a Potion showcase as well as playing at Klingande’s pool party.

Angie Releases Debut Album

New Album Out Now

              Angie

 

Get the new album right here.

Check out the brand new album By Angie and her new single to join it. ‘Here For My Habits’ takes flight with unnerving, warped synths before opening up to Ängie’s sultry and intoxicating vocals. Breaking into brooding synth lines over dark, twisted production, the track is an emotive and tripped out journey blurring the lines and limits between the dealer/customer relationship.

Regarding the track Ängie says, “‘Here For My Habits’ is a song about my earlier experiences with dealers. Somehow, many of them have tried to hit on me, or even fallen for me. It’s a bit sad that you can’t be a girl and do anything without getting a sexual invitation.”.

‘Here For My Habits’ is the second track to be taken from Ängie’s upcoming debut album, Suicidal Since 1995, and follows the dark bass and rolling trap beats of lead single ‘Dope’. The song was released last month, with the no-holds-barred video clocking up well over 300K views on YouTube, and set the precedent for the darker, more emotive tip the debut album finds the Swedish singer taking.

Elsewhere on Suicidal Since 1995, Ängie enlists a heady rolling flow on ‘We Run’, while ‘Boss’ is a carefully crafted slow-jam R&B love song. ‘Coke Ain’t Brain’ is a bouncy slice of trap-pop addressing addiction, while the album closes with a dark bassy cover of The Velvet Underground’s ‘Venus In Furs’, made in homage to one of Ängie’s heroes and inspirations Lou Reed.

Each track on the album is accompanied by a limited-edition item of clothing especially designed by Ängie. The exclusive items of clothing are limited to 150 pieces each and available solely through The Hyv. The album release is also marked by a limited edition Suicidal Since 1995 hoodie.

Ängie burst onto the scene in 2016 and took the world by shock and awe with her debut single ‘Smoke Weed Eat Pussy’. The following singles ‘Housewife Spliffin’ and ‘Spun’ further cemented her status as one of the hottest names to come out of Sweden.

The songs have clocked up millions of views on YouTube and Ängie has had unofficial fan clubs established across the world in locations as far flung as Brazil and Russia. She has received critical praise from the broadsheets, scandalised the tabloids and became an overnight internet sensation.

Suicidal Since 1995 showcases a new and ever-more exciting side to Ängie, developing her sound in dark and unexpected ways that are sure to add to the huge acclaim she has received.

Bringing in the likes of OC & Verde and Hubie Davison on this new remix package, it’s a considerable tastemaker canvas for Giovanna to paint her vibrant and unique style. Working on her debut album with Liam Howe (Lana Del Rey, FKA Twigs, Ellie Goulding) and Goetz Boetzenhardt (Faithless, Ella Eyre, Cinematic Orchestra) in London, Giovanna’s creative approach to releases and the talent she continually surrounds herself with can’t help but build the hype around her as a true one to watch for 2018.

Hubie Davison likewise synthesize the emotive melodies of artists like Four Tet and Caribou with the bare grooviness of Nicolas Jaar - incorporating spectral vocals into a sophisticated blueprint. Across a handful of releases for Berlin's Leisure System, Midland's ReGraded (on 2015's breakout 'Sanctified'), and 2020 Vision's Needs Not For Profit, the hyper tastemakers consolidate this with DJ sets for the likes of Panorama Bar, Corsica Studios, and Gaité Lyrique in Paris.
