New Release: Joker – On My Mind (Instrumental)

Household name in Bristol’s bass-scene, Joker released his debut album The Vison a few weeks back.

New Release: Jack Steadman – Mahalia

We posted on Jack’s solo project back in May this year – introducing the world to the Future-Garage vibes of I Will Change You.

That’s what Caleb Waterman did at London’s Plastic People and now he’s signed to Hebden’s label Text. Winter Turn Spring is a prime cut of 2-step, brought alive with some great vocal sampling and scratchy bass. Sit back and let it take you away.
