Greymatter is a person I have been following for a while on twitter and his great taste in music never stops to amaze me. He was interviewed for the latest “under the influence with…” series over at cubikmusik (a dope series & website that I highly recommend you to check out!) and it included a great mix called “2Steppin Into Tomorrow“. This heavy mixtape totally made my Monday morning and it includes tunes from Greymatter, Kode9, Floating Points & Martyn (to name a few). So stop wasting time, just go and read “under the influence with…greymatter” and find the complete tracklisting for the mix plus additional tunes to download! Enjoy! x

Happy Monday my friends!

I hope you have had a nice weekend. My weekends just seem to be getting better and better, this weekend not being an exception.

Went down to the Westbury on saturday night (despite the heavy rain I’d like to add). Was planning on a quiet night with no drinking just enjoying some quality tunes. Safe to say, it didn’t go as I planned… Due to my vodka loving Polish company, the vodka intake was a bit higher than anticipated. Nevertheless, MJ Cole played an incredible set, serving us tune after tune, proper setting the roof on fire. Everybody was dancing, even people I know never dance. One of the best “Download This” nights I have been to for a long time! (shout to Alex Phountzi from Bugz In The Attic / GreenMoney for putting on such a great night!)

Then Sunday arrived and I went down to Cargo to attend the Spin Doctors birthday bash/bbq. Oh man, what a perfect way to spend a sunday afternoon/evening!

The mood was on top, the vibes were amazing, and the DJ’s were incredible. I can’t remember the last time I went to an event where they played so many classic quality hiphop tunes! I especially like Kidkanevils set, EVERYBODY were getting down and singing along and feeling it. It put the biggest/silliest smile on my face ever haha. I love how good music can lift your spirits and make life seem 100 times better!

Now it is Monday and I feel a bit tired. But as they say, no rest for the wicked! There’s some pretty heavy stuff coming up this week! God I love summer in London!…

Good afternoon my friends!

How are we feeling today? All good I hope! Just wanted to give you heads up about this great documentary on 1Xtra called Bedroom Beats. It features some of the UK’s finest “bedroom producers” like Paul White, Bullion, Floating Points, Eric Lau, DJ IQ, Toddla T and many more. If you’re into making beats and producing stuff at home/from your bedroom, I definitely think you will enjoy this! Plus it’s not very long, only 26 minutes. So yes, check it out!
