Shouts to 2Shy for this. The majority of the DnB army was in there. Proper magic on this one. Thank you for EVERYTHING you did for the Drum & Bass community with your show over the last 10 years, Bailey. We know you're not GONE gone, but you'll be sorely missed from weekly radio listening.

Finally the result is here, titled ‘Caught In The Middle Of A 3-Way Mix’ - each of them have taken a third of the album to work on and combined their efforts into a mix that will make you hear it in a new way. Aside from the original sample sources they’ve included commentary from the Beasties, vintage interviews, demo versions and much more.
The mix was over half way completed when they heard the tragic news of MCA‘s death in May so the impetus to finish it was instantly doubled and new meaning given to the project. It goes without saying that this is also a tribute to Adam Yauch and the legacy he left behind and we hope it will be embraced by Beastie fans around the globe."

A Good Clean Fight symbolizes a lot, all at once.
Stories about the fight to stay in a relationship, stay sober and stay focused are weaved in with songs that take the more literal implication of the album title to create a body of work that's as personal as it is conceptual.

This is the Brown Bag AllStars' official Fat Beats tribute track. This is some important ish, because there'd be no BBAS if it wasn't for Fat Beats, as that's where they all met - while working at the legendary record shop. Cameos include DJ Premier, DJ Eclipse, Rickey Powell and the entire BBAS. Track produced by The Audible Doctor. Brown Label Pt. 2 EP drops September 4th (the same day I start at Complex) via BrownBagAllStars.com.

You can't go wrong with Jazzy Jeff: "Presented by LRG and Complex Magazine, Life Colors from legendary DJ Jazzy Jeff is a sonic representation that thinking differently and aiming to change the status quo is something that never goes out of style. Harnessed over 40 tracks that spans both the old and new - including tracks from the likes of Kanye West, Jay-Z, Dr. Dre, Santigold, Slum Village, J Cole, the Pharcyde and many more - the iconic DJ serves as a willing tour guide to bridge the gap between black and white thinking and a colorful renaissance".

AUGUST 27TH, 2012 - You might have to rename this week “Nappy’s NY Takeover”! With the Down & Durty show going down TONIGHT at The Westway in NYC, you’d think the one like Nappy would be satisfied, right? Word is he’ll bookend this week with a special guest set this Friday Morning (August 31st) on Sway In The Morning, which can only be heard on Eminem’s Shade 45 via Sirius XM! That’s right, with DJ Wonder already having dropped/premiered numerous refixes that Nappy has crafted, he’s now letting Nappy step up to the decks and showcase his sound on a worldwide scale! The only way to know what he will be dropping is to tune in to Sway In The Morning this Friday from 9:30-10AM to hear it for yourselves!
Kasso and the crew previewing the dope "Windows Of Soul" project, which is going down on a block of East Hanover Street in Trenton, from the 21st-23rd of September. Love that S.A.G.E. is forming like Voltron to bring CULTURE like this to the city. All art is being submitted - worldwide - so hit the jump for the flyer and info on how to get things sent out. Good to see Black Collar Biz performing on the 23rd of September as well. Truth.

Fridays were made for Drum & Bass (or is it the other way around?), and Optiv & BTK cooked up a dope promo mix for their forthcoming tour of Australia and New Zealand. Fast and furious neuro/tech vibes here, with a number of their collaborative bits thrown between cuts on Virus, Dispatch, Dutty Audio and Shogun Audio, among other bits. Tracklist and tour dates after the jump!
This week's Combat Jack Show is here, and their two-year anniversary edition, Memphis Bleek is the special guest: "In this candid and in-depth interview with M-Easy we discuss the rise, fall and “stumble” of Rocafella Records, his role in the Nas vs. Jay “beef” and much, much more. Is Bleek done with rap? What’s his current relationship with Jay? As always we got you covered". Dallas Penn is in the building as well, and while I haven't gone through the entire episode yet, this episode carries the following disclaimer: "The views and opinions expressed by Premium Pete (@PremiumPete) in this episode are those of Premium Pete and do not reflect the actions of the rest of the Combat Jack Show or PNC Radio, staff and its affiliates.

This is a weird one. Back when I first heard DJ Wonder drop this, I knew it as just a DOPE Trap tribue to a classic piece of '80s cinema from Brillz & ETC!ETC!. Had no idea that a) Diplo was part of it (although that can be an entirely different discussion) and b) that Chuck Inglish dropped some vocals to this. I can't front - the original of this is my real pick, but in the effort of continuting this EDM/Hip-Hop hybrid we've helped champion, I've taken an executive decision to bring you the newest latest version of this. You can grab this release for FREE via The Jeffrees; it includes the original (which also features Whiskey Pete) and a cut entitled "Swoop".

Serious mix from the one like DJ Cable here, done in conjunction with SoleHeaven for their "Kicks N Mixtapes" series. He goes in, trust, with a bit of everything: Trap, Hip-Hop, Grime, dubstep and plenty. 33 tracks in 60 minutes, spanning the globe of what's hot (including some of his own refixes and dubplates). Don't sleep on that or the feature with Cable at SoleHeaven.
Ninja Tune heads Coldcut (well, just Jon More) turned up for Mixmag's MOTW, chopping up some special carnival vibes. This one is to help promote the Ninja Tune Carnival this Sunday in London, which will feature Zed Bias, Congo Natty (!!!), Adrian Sherwood and a special guest TBA. So serious.
