London-based producer Astro Zu has been releasing tracks for just over a year now, each one setting the blogosphere alight even more. Blending influences from Hip Hop, RnB to future beats, he weaves forward thinking tapestries of hooks n beats to stunning effect. On his latest single he teams up with DC rapper Beau Young Prince, a major blog hitter in his own right. ‘Paranoid’ glides through laid back beats on a blissed out tale of modern love that begs the question, “just why are you so Paranoid, girl”?
Bon Voyage have just unveiled their debut single Booshie and it’s already picking up big Radio 1 support from Annie Mac, Huw Stephens and Toddla T. Led by the enigmatic NYC rapper Shamon Cassette, ‘Booshie’ is an exciting new take on the hip house sound.

Fans of kittens, bouncy castles and teddy bears beware; ‘Drums of Hell’, the collaboration between Mixhell and DJ Hell, is not nearly as saccharine as it may sound. You’ll be tremendously surprised to hear it’s, errr, somewhat hellish. It’s a fiery inferno of flames. It’s a blazing bonfire of brimstone. A charring conflagration of coal. It’s a jet of molten apple, squirting out of a microwave apple turnover. You get the idea; it’s hotter than the sun Lynn. The first of the two tracks on an incredible extended Mixhell EP on Bad Life features the German innovator and founding father of electro DJ Hell. The inimitable Sao Paulo duo Mixhell join us for their first outing on our label as part of their Acido project, a return to the dancefloor bangers for which they made their name…Continue Reading →
Akiine Kivelä Ngarambe aka Akiine is an young Swedish artist who burst on to the scene at the start of this year with the beautiful ’Sunglassy’, a stunning track which got all the right people talking and became somewhat of a blog hit. New track ‘Swans’ is just as beautifully crafted; a dreamy trip of contemporary electronica upon which her incredibly unique voice sits. And what a rare talent Akiine’s voice is as it gently weaves it’s way through this exquisite track. She’s back now with her debut official release, a four track EP coming out this Autumn on Bad Life…Continue Reading →
