MARCH 2010 sees the debut LP release from one of the rising names on the DnB scene today. Poland's RADICALL (a man whose music has seen plenty of airplay during many a GREENROOM set) brings forth a set of meticulously-crafted music filled with both a darker edge and a softer side filled with emotion. DUBLIN, IRELAND's ABSYS RECORDS releases its third album project in form of RADICALLS' 'EMOTIVE' CD and RADICALL himself will be handling the digital download version thru his own NIGHTWORKS MUSIC imprint.
Here's a little taster of what's in store.....

Another session filled-to-the-brim with new music this show as I started things up with the return of PFM and his epic opening tune "EQUILIBRIUM" (from the latest offering on TELLURIC RECORDINGS in shops now). Debuted a bunch of excellent new slabs of United States pressure from the likes of STEREOTYPE, FLACO, CJ WEAVER, INDIDJINOUS, CALCULON, BEATCHEMIST, TYLER STRAUB, SUBMORPHICS, among others. I've played a few of their bits in past shows, but some names to keep your ears out for that are really coming thru with the goods these days were highlighted in this session: UK's BASS FLO has a killer new EP forthcoming soon on LM1's firing OFFWORLD RECORDINGS imprint; and also - established producer and BASSWERK label owner THE GREEN MAN brings some new heat with his original productions, collaborations with SUBZ and MATIK (with a sneak-peak from their forthcoming debut LP for the label), and breaks off some new label business from Brazil's SIMPLIFICATION and UK's ALTERNATE VIBES.
Make sure you catch THE GREENROOM show next week (MARCH 17) as I welcome into the studio for the first time: rising U.S. producer, DJ, and label owner SUBSONIK as he'll be in town for the return of the 'SHAKEDOWN DnB' night that evening going down @ NEO Nightclub (2350 N Clark, Chicago).

Moving strength to strength, firmly placing Miami, Florida on the worldwide Drum+Bass map, this week URBAN CHEMISTRY RECORDINGS launches its 11th release, unleashes a hot new guest studio mix, and also offers up a tasty FREE track to download. It's definitely a big week for the UCR/FUSION crew as they gear-up for the Winter Music Conference season just around the corner. Here's the rundown.....
UCR 011: BROKEN DRUM - "STOLEN LOVE" / "MIDNIGHT HOUR"
"For our second release in 2010, we bring a fresh new perspective from three upcoming producers collectively known as 'BROKEN DRUM'. The UK crew: EUAN, LOUIS, and BARRIE offer 2 equally solid productions for the new single. The first cut, "STOLEN LOVE", is a finely-crafted piece of dancefloor funk, smoldering with an infectious, smooth soul sound. A catchy vocal hook and filtered piano bring back old school feelings coupled with a new style vibe. The second cut, "MIDNIGHT HOUR", keeps the groove running with a soothing female vocal hook carrying you alongside bouncy drums and an infectious stab-style bass riff. Look for future projects on the label from this talented group soon."
