Vocalist and producer Adjua released her debut single ‘O.L.V‘ at the end of April, drawing inspiration from the bass heavy depths of Bristol’s underground music scene. Her transcendent songwriting caught the attention of EARMILK, Lock Magazine and Jamz Supernova, and you can hear her debut LP in full at Bristol’s Hy-Brasil on 19th June.
London producer DJ Chillz deftly moves between a myriad of influences, from R&B and hip-hop to house and club. ‘Cosmic Voyage‘ is another example of her relentless passion and pride for her African heritage that she ardently supports on her ‘Eclectic Sounds‘ radio show on Croydon FM. Her Afro-tinged releases have found fans with EARMILK, XLR8R, Complex, Pop Matters and The 405.
London-based producer, composer and musician Rory Simmons released his fourth EP ‘Decade’s Dream‘ last month. Complete with a recent Peter Ibbetson remix, the project garnered support from The Line of Best Fit, okayplayer, Clash Magazine and PopMatters. Having performed with The 1975, Mount Kimbie and Friendly Fires, the talented producer takes centre stage on his solo release, draping the five-track project in glitchy pop jewels.
GARDEN CITY MOVEMENT
‘Miss You (Under Shitmokita Sky)’
Mixing an eclectic blend of sounds and styles, Tel-Aviv based trio Garden City Movement drew inspiration from their travels in Japan to curate their masterful indie dance anthem. Released through Late Night Stories, the track drew support from The Line of Best Fit, Clash Magazine, Magnetic Magazine and Stereofox. Look out for an exclusive remix of the track from producer Lava Dome on 24th May.
We’ve teamed up with Trojan Records on the release of their latest single, out via their new imprint label Trojan Reloaded. In July, Reggae Roast, one of the UK’s leading sound system collectives, will storm the reggae scene with the release of their new single ‘Sensi Skank Reloaded‘. Focusing on representing leading UK talent, the label continues to stay committed to the ever-evolving genre of reggae music, reintroducing classic tracks with dancehall and bass filled rhythms.
