Butch Clancy - Xlam

Ive always loved the way Butch Clancy writes music. It just seems like he lets the track takes its time to reach the drop and in doing so comes up with some really amazing sounds like this latest track, that he is  throwing up for free download.

Calvin Harris & Dillon Francis - Here 2 China (feat. Dizzee Rascal)

Two of my favourite artists have come together to collaborate on this track. This really could of went any direction (genre wise) as Calvin And Dillon are both so versatile, but going with a hip hop esque vibe was something that i didnt see coming. They really nailed this one! Also Dizzee adds some mad vibes with his vocals..

Run The Trap

This quickly emerging genre 'Trapstep' has been spreading like a wildfire, combining the best elements of both genres into one monstrous sub-genre full of menacing hip hop beats and bone-crushing bass (808 kick, clap, hi-hat). It's taken a while to grow on me but im really digging it. Ive thrown a massive download pack up of trap tunes that have been floating around the scene of late. So download them all and listen loud.

Between Diplos busy schedule he’s still able to drop a dirty trap mix of Calvin Harris’ ‘Sweet Nothing'

His Last EP When Your Gone I can comfortably say is my highlight release of the year .Flying Lotus really knew he was onto some raw talent when he put him on Brainfeeder.
I was lucky enough to catch Lapalux in Melbourne earlier this year , after a giant scuby and a handful of beers, a speaker has never been so good to stand against.

I have only just purchased this new EP, so I cant quite give you the lowdown on how it sounds,but going from his recent form I am going to say it will be quite the mind bender.

If your unfamiliar with the fella, think extremely abstract ,beat orientated tunes that are layered to the shithouse, and are extremely stirring on the emotional side of things. I will throw up a few tracks from his previous EP to give you a little taste. And then after that, go buy his new shit!!!
