Romare Rainbow cut & paste extraordinaire, dancefloor mover and shaker and vibe orchestrator Romare is back with a new 12” featuring two brand new versions of album favourite "Rainbow". This 12" homage to the halcyon days of the New York discotheques sees the young producer strip the elements of the album version back, dubbing the breathy vocals out, clipping the soulful piano and transforming the cut into a heads down roller for every mainroom. As that First Choice vocal sample reveals itself Romare drops the funkiest, most infectious bassline around and takes us away to a-whole-nother dancefloor! Bluesy guitar licks and moonlight sax snatches add extra layers of atmosphere and lift this way above your typical club fodder. As you'd imagine from the title, the "Bedroom" version is a sensual and sexy audio fantasy, complete with gasps, moans and a slow grinding guitar solo. While not entirely beatless, the thump and bump of the kick is gone, presumably leaving space for your to add your own headboard rhythms. The two edits are complemented by the wild shapes and feelings of an new cut "Love Song". This soulful hybrid of beatdown house and footwork sees Romare top vibrating synths, jangling percussion and soaring bells with a collage of vocal samples, percussive hits and warped melodies. Appropriately, it finds itself right in the middle of Romare’s mood mash-ups - a sweet spot indeed. Ninja Tune 12"
Nazamba Vex Vex is the debut 12" from NAZAMBA, a fire and brimstone dub poet from Kingston, Jamaica who will drop a full album with France's O.B.F. sound system in the fall. The riddim is produced by G36, an anarcho-dub collective from Nagasaki, Japan who also have their own EP incoming on PRESSURE.

Nazamba's angry rant against the global epidemic of morally bankrupt, indelibly corrupt politicians, is a straight shot toBabylon's head… Only 500 copies worldwide, Vex will be released on limited edition neon yellow vinyl. 12"
Ishan Sound We a Talk "It all started with Young H and Dread linking up on a tune, then they asked Rider to come in with a hook, and finally I got hold of it and worked with those elements for this version which we decided to release as a new record. I built Red as a heavyweight dance floor tune off the back of the energy response when playing 'We a talk' , the two seem to work well together. " Ishan Sound Deep Medi Musik 12" Pre-Order

Disclosure Energy We've got some signed 12" x 12" lithographs of the album artwork to give away with the indies LP. The highly anticipated new full length album from the acclaimed duo Disclosure. Following up from the Moonlight and Ecstasy EPs. “The thing that decided which songs made it and which songs didn’t was that one word: energy. Every track was written really quickly. That’s why we had to write so many songs because those ones don’t come up every day. Or every week. Or every month.” Through an epic process of creation and distillation the path to producing their shortest, most direct album - 11 songs, 39 minutes - ran through around 200 tracks: everything from drum loops to fully realised songs.

With this album they have adopted a more down tempo and organic instrument based approach while retaining that slightly distorted, hazy and analogue style.
