Headie One / Skepta Back To Basics - Floating Points Remix ‘One of the UK rap scene’s leading figures’, born in 1994 and raised on the streets of Tottenham, Headie One grew up inspired by US rappers such as Future and French Montana.

Music X Road demonstrates Headie’s respect and high esteem he holds amongst his peers with an impressive list of collaborators including grime legend Skepta on single Back To Basics. This was then remixed by the man of the moment Floating Points. Relentless Records 12"

Hot Chip A Bath Full of Ecstasy Limited LP is on 'crystal clear' vinyl and is packaged in a limited edition black & white sleeve. Regular LP is on black vinyl and packaged in the standard full colour sleeve. The new full length album from the acclaimed Hot Chip. A Bath Full of Ecstasy is a fresh, invigorating and essential new chapter in Hot Chip's career, taking in their huge breadth of influence and melody as only Hot Chip can. This is the first time the band have chosen to use outside producers from the offset, working with Philippe Zdar (Cat Power, Beastie Boys, Phoenix, Cassius) and Rodaidh McDonald (The XX, Sampha, David Byrne), and there is a marked dynamism in Zdar’s mixing that brings out the boldness of the songs collected here. The record is a celebration of joy but recognises the struggle it can take to get to that point of happiness. You can hear the pleasure Hot Chip had in creating this album and they want to pass on that feeling to the listener. It is time to get lost in A Bath Full of Ecstasy. Domino CD | LP
Grime 2016 Skepta / Wiley / Kano / .. Expected 28th October In hot pursuit of Skepta’s symbolic Mercury prize victory, it seems like an entire generation has fallen at grime’s feet and 2016 saw the genre continue its meteoric rise to the mainstream. From its early origins in East London council estates in the early noughties until today’s global recognition, grime’s distinct characteristic lays in its ability to stay loyal to its roots and give back to the community. Since their beginning at pirate radio station Rinse FM, where they offered a platform to burgeoning grime artists, Elijah & Skilliam have showed their dedication to the scene and built one of the genre’s most respected collective around their label Butterz. Dedicated curators, they have compiled a new volume of their essential annual compilation, Grime 2016, their 4th album to date. From Kano’s 3 Wheel Ups feat. Wiley & Giggs, taken from his critically acclaimed Made In The Manor album, singles from mainstays like Wiley, P Money, Dizzee Rascal to a variety of takes from the likes of Swindle, Last Japan, Nottingham’s own Mez, Dread D and Ninja Tune-signed The Bug, the album showcases grime’s broad diversity and the spectrum of influences coming into play in today’s outstanding productions.
