Lone Levitate Sixth full-length from ace London producer Lone. exploring ambient, jungle and hardcore! “It was pretty terrifying - I'd try to go to sleep and I'd be hearing mad rave tunes form in my head. When i recovered i was left with all these ideas for fast, feverish tunes. Following that we went to LA and hung out with friends, driving round all day in the baking sun playing jungle and hardcore edits - all the best bits from rare jungle tunes spliced together. There was something that really seemed to fit hearing these energetic tracks whilst speeding around LA under perfect blue skies, that was amazingly similar to music I'd been dreaming up whilst in New York. I couldn't wait to get home and start putting this together - I had a new theme.” R&S Records CD | LP

Preacha ft Rider Shafique Chasing Dreams Known for his dub excursions on labels such as Dub Stuy, Zam Zam Sounds and Moonshine Recordings, Bukkha steps out under his Preacha moniker once again for NICE UP! with a deep, dark and brooding grime and trap influenced track. What started out initially as a remix project for another artist soon turned into a track of its own when badman MC and poet Rider Shafique stepped up on vocals, going deep on the subject of what drives us in his own inimitable style. Remixes come from US dubstep don DJ Madd who flips the pace a bit for his signature 160 style - heavy on the vibes, bass and bounce, while up and coming producer Casement twists it into a grime style banger incorporating elements of garage and jungle along the way. Essential package covering many basses! Nice Up! 12"

Swindle No More Normal Bridging distinct but closely connected music scenes can open new possibilities. On ‘No More Normal’, Swindle confidently grasps the different sides to the UK music scene. Boasting roots in the boundary-pushing world of Grime & Dubstep, this album marks the next step in the London-raised producer’s expanded vision for his music. It fuses different disciplines together in new and electrifying ways. He connects a group of peers sharing creative common ground, one that centres around the fertile space between UK Jazz, Grime and Hip Hop. The results span from lush, strings-laden soul to voicebox heavy p-funk – often in the course of one song. “It’s a class photo of 2018,” he says. “I need everyone in this picture.” It incorporates an all-star cast of MC’s in Kojey Radical, Ghetts, D Double E and P Money, to instrumentalists Yussef Dayes, Nubya Garcia, Riot Jazz, and singers such as Etta Bond, Eva Lazarus, Daley and Kiko Bun.

Ghetts Ghetto Gospel: The New Testament The long, long awaited sequel to grime legend Ghetts' 2007 album Ghetto Gospel, this comes off the back of some outstanding work with Rude Kid which raised his profile to an all-time high. One of the most naturally talented MCs out there, this should be an album of the year contender. 'Ghetto Gospel - The New Testament' is a diverse and culturally relevant interpretation - both visually and lyrically - on his life, story and the times we live in now touching on topics of equality, female empowerment, cancer, crime & fatherhood. This album is also a continuation of the themes he explored on 2007s 'Ghetto Gospel' with Ghetts stating that upon the release of the original he had all these emotions with his daughter coming into the world, she was in and out of hospital and he was in a different chapter of his life. Fast forward to now, those things may not have changed but he has a different perspective on it; a different handle on things - "That's what this album is about, perspective and being able to grasp all sides of a story. It gives me a new perspective to appreciate life and what we have. To make a difference rather than only be able to wish you make a difference. When I talk to people who don't have that freedom it makes me realise we have opportunities here. DO not waster your freedom, believe me it's a blessing to have. Which is why I want to use my voice and the ability to tell a story in hope that someone will understand the freedom they have been given Is not to be taken for granted". CD | LP
