London based Drum & Bass duo DC Breaks are set to release their sophomore EP on RAM Records, home of current bass champs Sub Focus and Delta Heavy. The 4 track EP is titled “Firez” and it moves through all aspects of the genre with precision. The title track utilizes infectious synth hooks and melodies to rise above. “Era” goes a bit darker with growling bass lines and the end of the human race. “Move Closer” twists up the epic vocals by Belle Humble into a swell of energetic movement and “Shaken” finishes you off with crystal clear breaks in the intro and supremely heavy synths at the drop. These guys definitely have a knack for all things DnB. You can pick up the album from the RAM Records site here and enjoy the preview!

Happy Friday ninjas! We were talking at The Music Ninja headquarters (which is google chat, by the way) and we figured out one thing. I, Clayton Warwick, like to bring you fun, dancy, party tunes to get you pumped up for your weekend. The problem is, I always only give you one, which will most assuredly be overplayed by later Friday night. So, I present to you – Clayton’s Friday Party Playlist. It’s my collection of jams to get you feeling that party vibe. After all, life’s too short to not have a good time, right?
Have fun out there. Don’t drink and drive.

Former DeYarmond Edison member Chris Porterfield is now recording under the name Field Report, and on the evidence of ‘Taking Alcatraz’, we think you’ll be hearing a lot more from Mr Porterfield. Like a one-man Mumford & Sons, Field Report creates sensitive folk music which a warm heart. If you want more like ‘Taking Alcatraz’ – and why wouldn’t you? – stay tuned for news on his forthcoming record.

This set was recorded at Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival 2012. I placed a Zoom H4n handheld recorder in my booth to try and capture some of the audience reaction. I put that with the audio that came directly from the mixer. Enjoy!

Moguai had a phenominal start of 2012 with his critically acclaimed ‘MPIRE’. The self titled, second track from Mpire topped the charts of beatport and forced people to take notice. Already a quarter of the way into the year, Moguai has given us a preview of a much euphoric update for the original track ‘Lyme’. The German producer packs a much welcoming big room feel while still keeping with the breaks and dynamics from the original with two exception: LONGER BUILD UPS and HEAVIER DROPS. And for that we thank you Moguai. Stream a preview of the track below.

As if that wasn’t enough, there is still one more thing. For most of last year during his live shows, Moguai has put in rotation a sexy bootleg remix combining Tiga’s You Gonna Want Me and “Knas” from Steve Angello.

With our new layout, we are gonna do a better job at reorganizing all the genres. We never really had a Drum&Bass category but that will soon change, we promise. To kick things out we have one of the most exhilarating drum&bass remixes of the brand new track from Flux Pavilion “Daydreamer”. Danny Byrd is producer/musician from Bath in the South West of England. The facelift he gave to Daydreamer was much more than just cosmetic. The elevated quick passed with the original vocals from Example really make this a strong contender against the original itself.

Can’t say we are a huge fan of mashups, and quite honestly we love Avicii and Levels but we think it is time to move on now. However we couldnt help ourselves going “WTF IS THIS” after listening to Cyptex latest reglitched, supercharged mashups. Perhaps not a song you can dance to, yet worth listening because it is one of the trippiest things we have heard in 2012. Pitch playing, glitch play, BPM play and while at times completely chaotic, it still feel elegant and fluid. Try to stomach it below:
