Me, Kahn and Rider Shafique went to the Red Bull Studios in London recently and built a track… We also filmed the whole thing, and then offered the results up for DL.

In early winter Slit Jockey unleashed J-Sweet’s grime instrumental monster ‘Can’t Stop My Grime’ Remix EP, which reached heavy acclaim in the clubs, blogs and streets.
Starkey’s Remix, chock full of thick n’ bubbly 8-bar beats, caught the ear of Manchester’s finest grime crew – Virus Syndicate – and they wanted to lace a special vocal on the track! So here we have this MC version for the masses to get down.
Virus Syndicate MCs JSD, Goldfinger & Nika have a raw urban bass heavy sound that leans to many genres, with hard edged beats and lyrical intelligence the Virus are fast gaining tips to become the next major UK break through act. Virus Syndicate have released on Planet Mu, Contagious, Case Load, Stamp Beats and other labels.
Fresh off recent Ninja Tune releases and an impressive back catalog on Planet Mu, Civil Music, Seclusiasis, and more – Starkey is an unstoppable street bass force. Not to mention the legendary grime status of J-Sweet. This single is surefire, don’t sleep.
Cut & Slice’s second release carrying the name “London Rave” is a collaborative effort with a British vocalist Leena Ojala. London Rave is a groovy mix of melodic disco elements and electro basslines topped with uplifting vocals.
FACT mix 326 comes from da mind – ahem – of Traxman.
Deeper house and techno from a UK favourite.
