03. The Bug feat- D Double E & Riko Dan - Box / Iceman [Ninja Tune]
When The Bug comes up with a new release, no matter if 12", EP or full on album, it's defo a must check for me and always has been. And with this one The Bug is doing some damage on Grime floors all over the place although the A-side named "Box" featuring D Double E on microphone duties is not that angry, violent and sub-heavy as most of the projects tunes but caters to a slightly broader audience in terms of Grime fans out there, of course without any compromise. On the flipside Riko Dan takes over the mic for "Iceman" which is a stone cold killer tune of the kind we all love The Bug for from the heart, a massive tool of bass destruction creeping up form the depths of hell. Therefore "Iceman" wins and will not leave the crates for quite a while.

04. Various Artists - Shapes In Space Compiled By Robert Louis [Tru Thoughts Recordings]
Oh, what a great compilation this is! Usually I'm not following the busy release schedule of Tru Thoughts Recordings on a regular but whenever they're putting out a new sequel to their annual "Shapes"-series showcasing the spectrum of the labels eclectic catalogue it's quite likely there's some good stuff on there to add to the collection and to incorporate in more Freestyle / Downtempo-orientated DJ-sets like the occasional ones I play at the Mojo Jazz Cafe in Hamburg. And this years "Shapes" does not disappoint in catering a great collection of NuSoul, jazzy Downtempo, as well as more uptempo Broken Beats, Ragga / Bashment, bits of Future & UK Garage and even a Juke-rework crafted by Chicago's DJ Manny. Some names included here: Rodney P & DJ Die feat. Indigo Kid, Dizz1, Werkha. The Bamboos, Lakuta and many more.
