My Style - The Others - Dub Police

Alex from The Others has been in the game for a few years now. His first release on DP was in 2007 with a couple of great little tunes, 'Africa' and 'Ganja Man'. Now solo and still loyal to the Dub Police crew, his sound is a lot more polished, and this EP shows it. 'Voyager' keeps things bang up-to-date with trap influences that segue into a metallic dubstepper. 'Amazonia VIP' is all darkside swagger.

Going Under (feat Sarah) - Subkilla - Subground Records

Superb trance-inspired airy vocal in this new Subground release, combined with pitch-bended stabs, heavy drops and melodic breakdowns, making this a great track for warming up those harder floors.

The Touch (Solaris Heights Remix) - Grum - Heartbeats

Scottish producer Grum continues the quick ascent of his second coming, recently turning in his debut entry for the Essential Mix pantheon. For the opening record he selected this rogue remix of his latest single from UK veteran Solaris Heights; and with its moody charms, it’s not hard to understand why. Building the remix around the bassline of the original, and then taking it a few notches deeper, our remixer summons a particular melancholy that packs a proper emotional punch. While he only teases the original’s vocal, he eventually lets the melody take centre stage, bringing it all together for a complete package that really resonates.

Estate - Mella Dee - Omena

Tasty and tough three-tracker from one half of Mista Men, now very much striking out on his own. Raw, no-frills dutty house music for those raggedy dances where you don’t mind a few spilt pints on your crispy creps and where you’ll enjoy the aroma of a cheeky biffter wafting through the air. Check 'Warehouse' for its flashes of grime simplicity and hypnotic roll.
