Not too much known about these 3 Brits from Northwestern England other than that they’ve caught the ear of Dave Spoon AKA Shadow Child & Kry Wolf for a debut release on their FOOD Music imprint out last month. Makes No Sense‘s Sling EP showcases an array of thumping, bass-heavy House music — right up the audible alley of imprint owner Shadow Child. The 3-track EP has received some serious support for a debut EP, receiving plays from Skream, Benga, Ardalan, Jaymo & Andy George, and many more. I think it’s definitely appropriate to add this trio to the growing list of top House & Bass coming out of England. Pick up the FOOD Music release here and check this mix the lads put together to celebrate their FOOD debut.
A massive 12 song compilation dropped today compliments of Moda Black. The roster of artists appearing in the package is a dream-team of rising stars like Disclosure, Eats Everything, Nick Monaco, and Kill Frenzy. I’m hard pressed to pick a favorite out of the bunch, as the tunes vary from the deep house camp over to the peak-time warehouse vibe. Expect to hear a fair bit of this compilation this summer, especially since Moda Black’s label heads are none other than BBC1’s Jaymo & Andy George. Pick up a copy on iTunes or Amazon. Check out previews after the jump.
To cap off a massive year, BBC Radio 1’s dynamic duo Jaymo & Andy George released a power packed mix for MixMag and Moda, equipped with some of the “biggest tunes of 2010 and beyond.” Aside from the greats we already know and love, the London boys premiered Fake Blood‘s newest creation – “Medieval”. This tune makes you wanna turn a renaissance festival into a HARD festival. Speaking of – I can feel that we’ll be seeing more new greatness from Fake Blood this year, as he will be one of the headliners for the upcoming HARD Weekend, being held on March 11th-19th, in Oakland, Los Angeles, and New York City. (*This is not the full track, only a 320 rip from the full mix, so be on the look out for the actual release of the full track!)
