I wanted to do a mix of rough as fuck MC-driven garage... the stuff that flowed from UK fast chat and US hiphop and eventually filtered into grime in 2002. And here it is - a new year's present for you.
It is here. http://www.grievousangel.net/GAMixes/MC_Garage.mp3
This is a 4x4 garage mix I did in the summer and put up on Twitter but not here yet... people seem to like it, full of great twisted jacking deep 4x4 garage tunes. Worth the download just to hear the first one from Madie Myles, absolute ecstasy...
Hi. I've done a mix of future garage, for the Fundamental Garage blog. I did an interview with them a few weeks ago and this mix goes with it.
You can get the mix here: http://fundamentalgarage.com/mixology/mixology-four/
I had a blast doing this mix. Starts quite bouncy then, goes a bit...
Shaun Bloodworth is a well known and excellent photographer who is best known in music circles for his portrait work for Rinse. Those amazing pictures of people like Geeneus, Chef, Skream etc? They’re by Shaun. He did the Margins Music album cover too. So he’s a badman basically. Plus, for this...
New mix of classic 2step is now out! Been waiting for the warm weather to come back. It's hot today so it's now OUT. Music to play in your car.
All vinyl, one edit. More mixes here.

El B Feat Reis and Dee...
I am playing in Manchester on Friday 11th at Band on the Wall.
The line up is AMAZING!
Dusk and Blackdown playing Margin's Music live - I remixed the album, got them into Ableton, now they're playing it out! But with a massive twist - they've got a whole live band too, including Farah...
Yup. I got a release on Soul Jazz records.
It's out on Monday but its in the Soul Jazz web shop now.
It's a new funky remix of Move Down Low. For me the main draw is the VIP - which is, though I say so myself, absolutely massive. Goes off every time in the dance. Best...
I've started putting a few things onto Bandcamp. They're good tunes that probably aren't coming out.
Erzulie - the companion track to Harpy which came out on the flip of Soundclash. Heavy wonk, I really like it, proper performance.
I'm playing Exodus / DMZ in Leeds.
Me, El-B and Heatwave in room 2.
Some other people in room 1 - Mala, Loe, Kode, Scuba, Silkie...
Gonna be good.
I'm doing some 80s dancehall, some funky, maybe some jungle.
Excited about this one.
Check the blog post for the link.
You have GOT to check out Erykah and Jill Scott over Kryptic Minds, marriage made in heaven!
Oh, and Atki2 Tome Freezes. Not many people have this. One of the best tunes of the year. Epic Bristol vibes, ace MC track.
These two mixes between them are some of...
I remixed the whole of the blackdown and dusk album and turned it into a DJ mix.
It's out now on CD.
Though I say so myself, it's really, really good. Drifty, dreamy, headfucky, funky, really lush, triangulates perfectly with the king midas sound album, silkie's city limits and a trim...
MP3 of the mix for Radio One with Soundclash and a bit of Harpy in it. Only 15 minutes but worth hearing.
39 Mb MP3.
Grievous Angel – ‘I Love Dem’ (Devotional Dubz)
Toasty – ‘Knowledge’ [Untold Remix] (Hotflush)...
Soundclash is out now on Keysound Recordings LDN011 so I thought I'd give it a little thread of its own.
140bpm junglist garage. Big hook, big bass, big vocal.
Destroys the dance every time. Proper tune. Best thing I've ever done.
Boomkat review ain't bad:
Don't think I've posted about this...
Legendary (and extremely good!) modern roots and dub outfit Twilight Circus turned me loose on their entire back catalog so I could come up with what they call a "freQed and tweaked musical journey".
Check the exclusive vocal talent: Vocalists: Big...
Listen to my mix for Mary Anne Hobbs on the radio one website.
15 minutes of banging, heavy dubstep, ragga techno, grime and funky.
The other mixes on there are worth checking too - sbtrkt's excellent "bastard son of 2step and techno" stuff and Mr Beatnik's lovely downbeat soul and jazz...
I am on the search for decent record storage options.
I'm sure there was a thread or two about this before but I had a good search and there doesn't seem to be anything specific.
I'm looking for wooden cubes that will be sturdy. Eden has some from B&Q that are ideal but they don't seem to do...
One year on from the first release on Devotional Dubz, Lady Dub, here's the second:
Grievous Angel Ft. Rubi Dan: Move Down Low: Bubblez' Funky remix
Lady Saw & Cecille: Loser: Bubblez' Funky refix
Devotional Dubz ERZULIE02
It's out on Monday and the pressings are in the country and sounding...
My remix of Naphta's Soundclash is out on Keysound on July 27th.
LDN011 follows Starkey ft Durrty Goodz "Gutter Music" and DVA "Bullet A'Go Fly" ft Badness, Riko, Flowdan and Killa P.
Soundclash is 140bpm junglist vocal garage. It moves dancefloors.
Backed with Harpy, a super heavy wonky...
