NEW RADIOHEAD! Live from The Basement

Looks like Radiohead are going back to The Basement to perform The King Of Limbs and this new song called Staircase!

Here's the blurb from Phil:
"Here's a new track called Staircase, taken from our upcoming 'From The Basement' session.

And no, you're not seeing double. The doppelganger drummers are myself and Clive Deamer. Clive has long been one of my favourite drummers and so I was really excited when he agreed to perform with us. Hope you like what we've all done.

Philip x"

Enjoy! And know that the videos from The Basement off In Rainbows are on iTunes for .99 cents... that's not me shilling for them... I just downloaded "All I Need" and "Reckoner". Be back soon!

Maya Jane Coles knocks us "Senseless"

After one of the best songs of the year so far from She Is Danger's Lena Cullen yesterday (via Emalkay) I couldn't help but post her partner Maya Jane Cole's track "Senseless"! It is totally awesome in a TOTALLY different way... this reminds me more of my heroes Swayzak than it does of Dub Police stuff... first though check out this track she remixed of Tricky's!

Here's some press:
"After donning May covers from Mixmag to DJ Mag: Weekly - Maya Jane Coles arrives with her new 'Focus Now' EP which sees it's all store digital release this week - w/c 13/06/2011 (press release attached).

With She is Danger's Maya currently holding 4 spaces on the top ten deep house Beatport chart, number one in Beatport electronica with 'Senseless' as well as 'focus Now' also in the top 20 of the the tech house charts and receiving club support from the likes of Jamie Jones, Nick Warren, Paul Woolford, Laurent Garnier, Luciano, Claude Von Stroke, Layo, Anja Schneider amongst a whole bunch of other headz - it is safe to say that the EP's reception has been rather favourable so far - enjoy!"

I'd show you Maya Jane Coles - 'Senseless' recut to Wizard of Oz but the embedding was disabled!

NEW EMALKAY REMIXES and video featuring Lena Cullen of She Is Danger!

I don't need to say anything about Emalkay... if you listen to dubstep you love this shit already... and if you don't listen to it I doubt you'll be able to resist this track! It features ISoA favourites She Is Danger's Lena Cullen on vocals. Here's a little info on her...

"Already hailed as "the Kate Bush of Dubstep" - Lena Cullen is a British multi-instrumentalist / producer / vocalist from London drawing on dubstep, dub, trip-hop, techno, electronica and dark wave in her work.

Known to many as one half of female dub electronica duo She is Danger, alongside rising supernova producer / DJ Maya Jane Coles; Lena has already made fans out of the likes of Adam F, Damon Albarn and Massive Attack's Robert Del Naja.

As She is Danger; Lena has remixed artists such as Gorillaz, Groove Armada, Ellie Goulding, Delphic and, in particular, an acclaimed dubby reworking of Massive Attack's 'Girl, I Love You' which was included on the deluxe album version of the band's 'Heliogland!'

Lena has forthcoming single collaborations landing in 2011 with Dub Police's seminal Emalkay named 'The World' and Engine-Earz Experiment's 'Reach You' - the latter collab has already enjoyed wide ranging radio and club support prior to it's Spring 2011 release date with the track already gaining almost half a million views on Youtube alone!

After a recent highly successfully solo UK tour supporting Dreadzone; Lena's debut album 'Something Subconcious' [Working Title] will be largely co-produced by herself and Andru Lorenzo and is scheduled to arrive in late 2011."

And here's info about Emalkay if you don't already know:

"With initial support in the form of grime veteran Plastician, “Birmingham’s finest” Emalkay gained the attention of South London based label Boka Records with the warped, future bass drones and epic strings of Gut Feeling. Continuing the success, Testing The Waters EP was released in October 2006 followed by Monsters in June 2007.

The revolutionary sound of Mecha, released in the fall of 2007, gained Emalkay support from the likes of Radio 1 DJ Mary Anne Hobbs and breakbeat pioneer FreQ Nasty, as well as many of the leading figures of the current dubstep scene. It seemed Emalkay’s own potential as a pivotal dubstep artist was finally being realised. His final release on Boka Records was the reggae influenced My Story in April 2008.

In the fall of 2008, Emalkay produced Explicit - a tune that gradually captured the interest of such prominent dubsteppers as Benga and received major support from acts such as The Scratch Perverts and drum and bass duo Chase and Status. After being approached by Caspa however, the track was finally released on the Dub Police label in February 2009 after much anticipation."

Welcome Back! Have a Frankmusik "Do It In The AM" remix...

Ohhhhhhhhhhh... if only I just had never ending resources... time, money, support, and oddly enough emotions... well this spot would be rockin'! I seriously considered shutting the site down for good because... frankly I'd run out of all of the above.

So why am I back? Well after careful consideration I realized this is one of the only things I give a shit about. I've made a lot of apologizes about not getting back to the site... and more importantly I've made promises I haven't been able to keep... hopefully I'll make good on some of those...

I think you guys know Frankmusik is one of our favourite artists full stop. So I'm glad that I'm coming back full force with a remix of his newest single.

'Do It In the AM' MNEK remix by Anorak London

So yeah, tell me what you think, I'll be back faster than you can say "lazy ass blogger" :)
