To those of you that toss & turn in your bed, who find themselves wondering why no channels cater to insomniacs, who grit their teeth at people who get a full eight hours of sleep each night, science has offered up nice little drug called zolpidem to coax them into dreamland. I’m sure you’ve all heard of Ambien, right? Welp, that’s Zolpidem.
Zolpidem is a prescribed drug that very successfully helps to initiate sleep in an individual who ingests it. In the action of helping someone fall asleep, I find that there are some truly special tracks that work in a similar light to Zolpidem. Not to say the songs are boring, and like Zolpidem, if you force yourself to stay awake can have very different effects indeed. (Note: I do not condone doing this with Zolpidem… nor will these songs make you hallucinate…) Right, so after you brush your teeth and tuck yourself in, press play on these songs below & start drifting away………… Continue Reading
This past few weeks has been particularly strong for EP releases. Two weeks ago, GDD™ head honcho Jonah Berry brought to our attention Julio Bashmore‘s recent mix for Vice mag. Julio’s recent EP entitled Everyone Needs A Theme Tune has been kicking up mad heat in the UK, and rightly so, it’s a fantastic record. The EP’s remixes have also recently dropped, my favorite of which is by rising talent Maurice Donovan, who also goes by the name of Ramadanman and Pearson Sound. That’s up for streaming below.

A second release I’ve been enjoying is the new Cassius EP I <3 U So out on Ed Banger. The title track is pretty catchy although from a production perspective I find it difficult to listen to as it’s pretty heavy on the hi’s, but I dig the EP’s remixes from Skream, and B-side from Night Slugs‘ L-Vis 1990.

The third and final EP I’ve had on repeat is the brand new Canblaster release Master of Complication, which isout on Nightshifters. The Club Cheval resident provides some dank coverage of the tropical and UK Garage end of the EDM spectrum. Big fan of this record, it’s among my favorite releases of 2011 so far, and a real grower. Second A-side ‘Triple Ring’ is the most impressive track on the EP, which sees remixes from Jess Jubilee and Magnum, while Para One & Teki-Latex provide 3 renditions of Canblaster’s ‘Clockworks’ to round out a super solid release. Be sure to check it out. [Purchase Link]
