TITLE: No Future (Skream Mix)/Minimalistix / ARTIST: Instra:mental/Skream / LABEL: Civil Music / RELEASE DATE: January 2010
1. No Future (Skream Mix) – Instra:mental
2. Minimalistix – Skream
Nonplus004 calls upon the undeniable talents of dubstep legend DJ Skream. After working on a number of tracks alongside Instra:mental and dBridge down @The Zoo, he provides a remix of Instra:mental’s seminal ‘No Future’ and has also crafted one of his deepest cuts to date ‘Minimalistix’
Instra:mental ‘No Future (Skreamix)‘ Skream comes with a bloodthirsty remix of Instra:mental’s ‘No Future’ and it’s been shaking the dubstep headz into delirium all over the planet in recent months. He’s taken the original, flipped the script and mutated it into a low down gritty bass work out set to tear the front row ravers to shreds. Caution! Not for the faint hearted.
Skream ‘Minimalistix’ sinks us 20 leagues into the depths of the dubstep genre and gives us a supreme master class on how to work a hook. Constantly transforming it with a mixture of classic dub effects and unfathomable edits, it’s clear to see why Skream’s diverse and unpredictable productions are in such high demand.

2. Armored Core
5. Channel Pressure
6. Mind Games
Temjin EP is 6 tracks across 2 slabs of musical genius that moves a whole spectrum of electronic genres forward while further cementing Reso‘s place as the overlord of hi-tech dubstep. On Temjin, wobble, hypercrunk, breaks, wonky, hip-hop and DnB all receive the treatment. Reso’s deep musicality, incredible skill, intricate programming and wildly diverse references place him at the peak of a new breed of electronic producers.
Otacon, the lead track, and Armored Core are the big ones for the dubstep massive to get crazy with in the dance. Fans of “If You Can’t Beat Em” and “Heavy Arms” will not be disappointed here. Hemisphere is a liquid epic-lush and deep, pulsing and driving while soulful, intelligent atmospherics cocoon you with warmth throughout. Hyperglide twitches and skips into something undeniably incredible. A future hip-hop, hyper crunk monster programmed to perfection. Its uncontrollable beats spill effortlessly over the hypercolor final boss synths and set a new bench mark. On Channel Pressure Reso touches down in LA with dangerously laid back future hip-hop and lolloping funk. A track has already put Fly Lo’s west coast scene on high alert to Reso’s imminent takeover. The release wraps up with the killer, drum and bass genre-redefining, Mind Games. The last drum break of which will make people cry on the dance floor then explode. Styles unheard made unmistakable.
The sonic counterpart to roaring robotic futurism, Reso’s hybrid of rising ambience, hyper beats and speaker busting tech-basslines feels more suited to a post apocalyptic Tokyo than the contemporary concrete of most dubstep. A truly visual experience, Temjin’s mech-mania induced synthesesia conjures images of neon-tinged neo-Japanese cityscapes, powerful hulking automatons and violent bassline machismo.
Temjin will open new musical worlds for the wider electronic audience and rewards the playstation generation, loyal club kids and seasoned steppers who go wild for Reso’s productions already. Reso’s meld of references will draw fans from all realms of the electronic spectrum. Emotive and unique, Reso’s new rhythmic possibilities and perfectly chaotic programming make this essential for fans of Dubstep through Techno to IDM, from Skream to Thom Yorke to Rustie via Bukem. Reso’s artwork is a perfect compliment to his sound. Hawaii Design has moved Reso’s Manga stylings forward, to match his post-Mecha soundscape. The old outlined manga beast has been replaced by a slicker, more deliberate machine – reflecting the development of Reso’s style.

2. Radiance Trigger
3. Seven Uses of Potential Difference
4. Two Times Three Times
5. Sunflower (Eero Johannes’ Savanna Remix)
6. Seven Uses of Potential Difference (Blue Daisy Tribal Remix)
7. Radiance Trigger (Batfinks Remix)
8. Radiance Trigger (Recue Remix)
Sitting firmly between soulful electronica and forward-thinking soundscapes, these two south-end on sea beat collaborators have found new pastures in the fields between Four Tet and Flying Lotus.
For this EP they have been lent a hand with remixes from luminaries in all strains of electronic music: Planet Mu’s skwee master and scene figurehead Eero Johannes takes the opening track ‘Sunflower’ and has created possibly the perfect remix: simple, engaging, quirky and emotive. Disgustingly deep new Darling of Dubstep and beyond Blue Daisy has produced a masterpiece with his tribal reworking of “Seven Uses of Potential Difference“. Lo Recording’s elusive Batfinks has created nothing more than a cosmic explosion with this work of uncontrollable techy delight. His remix of “Radiance Trigger” is a potent surprise and in a category of its own, incredibly intricate and continually surprising. Recue finishes the package with some classic early Warp/Mu electronic sounds delivered in a decidedly different and modern way.
These guys fall into the realm of beats, electronica, down-tempo, dubstep, soul, deep house and minimal, and draw comparisons to Nathan Fake, Flying Lotus, Four Tet, Martyn and Harmonic 313.
“Converge/Neurosis” – June Miller (Horizon Music) [SINGLE] February 19, 2010Posted by rocketsciencemedia in Press Releases.

Mark McCann and Bart Van Dijk form June Miller, one of the most spoken about acts of 2009. Producing across the internet from London to Uterecht and back, the duo have set the scene on fire with their outstanding music and explosive DJ sets.
Converge enters the arena with a stuttered vocal and skittering hi-hats sat alongside a sweeping pad. Dub like tones add atmosphere and melody as a perfectly executed funk break provides the flow. Things break down for a moment before a warm sub bass provides weight to the track, whist the pad is stripped back for a solid roll-out. Sweeps and midrange sneak in and out of the mix, giving things an edge without being over the top. Filters attack and twist up the beat in the later parts, providing a crisp contrast to the first section.
Neurosis begins with haunting ride cymbals sat alongside epic film-like strings and atmosphere. Drum rolls ring out, giving an almost military air to the proceedings. Just when it sounds like all hell is going to break loose, everything gets swept back into a lush and floating string section. The drums break back in and provide a perfect accompaniment. If you like your music full of emotion and atmosphere, don’t miss out on Neurosis.

1. Turn The Lights Out – Spor Remix
2. Turn The Lights Out – JFB Remix
Hadouken! are back! With a new album and a single, ‘Turn The Lights Out’ is an indicator of a harder direction the band have taken and the perfect taster for their second album.
Recorded alongside the album tracks with producers of the moment Noisia at their Groningen studios, the track melds a dark string section worthy of the Wu Tang at their finest to a low slung pure evil bassline and is a call to arms for clubbers, partiers and giggers the length and breadth of the UK.
Hadouken!’s return begun with their M.A.D track picking up huge coverage across Youtube, the official video featuring a rampaging mouse on the town shooting straight to the top of the viewed charts on site and registering near on half a million views to date. With uber blogger Shane Dawson taking the track for his Halloween special and adding millions more to that total, Hadouken’s return to prominence, and their position at the forefront of using the web to engage with their fans, continues apace.
The dark, twisted and heavy hand of Spor slams into the remix buttons with an awesome re-working of this mighty track. Basslines from the deepest depths of your darkest nightmares and heart-attack inducing drops that yell “The apocalypse is nigh”. JFB’s remix is pure dance-floor [fans of Hench and Jakes will love this]
The band is currently on a successful UK tour much to the happiness of there which there devoted fan base
“Sweetshop” – Flash Atkins feat. Caspa Codina (We Are Woodville/Paper Recordings) [SINGLE] February 17, 2010Posted by rocketsciencemedia in Press Releases.

Failed superhero Flash Atkins is back with the infectious Sweetshop for a second helping with some fresh remixes from the front line. Since the last EP, Flash has played live on The Fourth Plinth, and been filmed and interviewed on Sky by Clive Anderson as part of Anthony Gormley’s One and Other. He has also had the well-received Fags & Booze EP released on We Are Woodville featuring George Demure, Crazy P’s Danielle Moore and Sean Reveron.
First off, the original Sweetshop has been dusted down and zinged up with some pop nips and tucks. It’s got lo-fi bass, crunchy drums and snapping synths all topped of with 70s crooner Caspa Codina’s sleazy falsetto; it’s pop music with a knowing wink and impeccable 80s credentials.
Next up, producer of the hour Medasyn come fresh from masterminding Envy and Lady Sovereign to turn in a big room electro mix complete with crowd noises, dirty distorted basslines and 80s arpeggiators. There’s plenty of drops and attitude for maximum dancefloor impact.
Finally, Magik J does his hypnotic heads down thing with a vocal and dub suitable for those darker moments. The tracks mix up fidget, techno and house, guaranteeing full floors and thrown shapes.

TITLE: Swerve (Remix)/Fang Face / ARTIST: DJ Marky feat. S.P.Y / LABEL: D Style / RELEASE DATE: March 2010
A. Jakes feat. TC – Swerve (Marky & S.P.Y Remix)
A new decade and a big year ahead for the D-Style camp; and what better way to start it off than with a debut release on the label from two of d’n’b’s biggest producers!
All the way from Brazil, Marky and S.P.Y have lent their production skills to many a diverse and high quality project. A simple formula – these guys don’t need an introduction – they let the music do the talking.
A. Jakes (Feat.TC) – Swerve (Marky & S.P.Y Remix)
With the original of this anthemic release coming out on The Jakes Project in 2009, Marky played this tune in almost every set for about a year. After giving the tune so much love, the natural option was to give in and let him remix it! And boy, have he and S.P.Y turned it into a serious weapon for the dancefloor! Keeping Swerve’s latin flavour intact, prepare yourself for when the sub-bass drops – this one’s going to make the foundations of the building wobble. Maintaining Jakes’ unmistakable rhymes flowing over the top, keep your hand close to the turntable for the inevitable shouts for a rewind on this one.
Mixing things up a little bit, here’s something different from the D Style imprint. Marky & S.P.Y have served us up with a truly filthy roller. A deceptively light-hearted intro brings the tune in on a more easy-going tip, making way for a driving bassline that’ll have you pursing your lips, dropping your head and rocking from side to side. Never losing sight of their background, the Brazilian-boys fuse the funky percussion with the gritty base perfectly – whatever your flavour, this needs to be in your record box.

TITLE: For Love Or Money/In Your Name / ARTIST: DKay / LABEL: Brigand / RELEASE DATE: February 2010
A. For Love Or Money – DKay & Concept
AA: In Your Name – DKay + Rawfull
Mastermind DKay teams up with the now firmly established Concept, who, after having proved his production skills on various releases, adds the funk to the Brigand flavour. Epic 70s horns and house vocals set the tone for the high rolling “For Love Or Money“. Old school analogue production technique has been applied to give this tune a warm and driving edge, that seems to be missing in most computer based productions these days.
For the flipside, long time partner Rawfull joins DKay in the studio once again. “In Your Name” is a bit more minimalistic than other tunes by the duo also known as Illskillz. A deep but angry reese bassline and a hypnotic synth riff are the trademark sounds in this dreamy piece of music, that will excite both party goers and home listeners alike.
