New mix: Smoke

We’re still in 2017-land with this one, but don’t let that put you off. I have to admit I missed a whack of good stuff last year in grime, which Butterz’s annual Grime 20XX comps always put me up on, but generally I tried to avoid those cuts since they mix them better than I could. Instead I pilfered some favourites from the ever-growing pile (Tuckz, 67) and some I overlooked that popped up in others’ lists (notably the always essential Bleep one, from which I snagged the revelatory DJ Lycox and a quirky one from E.M.M.A.). Plus the Stormzy and Dizzee LPs yielded a few bangers. Enjoy the fruits of my (belated) labour…

New mix: Metal Creature

These are grim times for dance — oh hell, for everyone. I am struggling with a few relatively minor things myself, but making this mix was unadulterated fun. I hope you enjoy listening to it. NB I make no apologies for back-to-back tracks from Inna Nice Up Fashion!, which you should go get right now. The ragga jungle revival starts here!
