I'm not sure if you guys fuck with DnB like I do, or remember guys like Lemon D, who are truly one of the architects of the modern sound (alongside his Valve Music bredren Dillinja). He took a few years off to go into an entirely different direction, which resulted in him shedding his "Lemon D" moniker for a new name, K-AZE (which derives from the initials of his government name). He uploaded a 30 minute sampler of tracks that he has on the horizon, and he dips into everything from dubstep and R&B to that Flying Lotus/DIBIA$E lane (truth be told, the entire Valve sound is moving into multiple directions, with House, dubstep and more genres getting released). And the shit's definitely dope - I'm vibing to this right now! Check out more details via DOA, and keep it locked for more from K-AZE.

The release of Payback is a long time coming. Hell, me hearing the album in it's entirety has been a long time coming (and I'm STILL waiting). Getting co-signs from guys like Jay-Z and ?uestlove seem to have been a long time coming for Danny! as well. Riding over some live-sounding drums and dope organs (which always feel like fire to me), Danny Swain speak on all of this. This cut is said to be from the Japanese import version of Payback. I just wanna hear the American version.

Last weekend, I started having some deep/dope conversations with a producer out of the Detroit area by the name of Sinistarr. I've known about him for the last four/five years, as any Black DnB producers out of the US rarely miss my inbox. We've had a cool rapport, and I've seen him grow from getting tunes signed to Fabio's Creative Source imprint to having bits drop on Metalheadz and Hospital Records. He's been in a different space, and is moving into different BPMs, and this is one of his first in the 165BPM range. You might have heard of the juke/footwork styles coming from Chicago and Detroit, and this remix of an Apex track (with beautiful vocals from Ayah) that Hospital released is a great example of that footwork sound. Pounding kicks and thumping bass are two of the staples of this sound, and it's been taking over as of late. Hell, Disc Jockey Nappy and Juke Ellington even have a footwork tape dropping soon... as will Nappy and Sinistarr. In any case, grab this free remix, and if you're messing with the sound, there's PLENTY more where this came from!

Nope, I've never been a fan of Mac Miller. I do remember hearing a Chase & Status mix from BBC Radio 1Xtra where they spoke on Mac and how much they dug his music. I'm guessing that admiration lead to this version of "Flashing Lights", which features some lyrics from Mac in a few spots. Yeah, keep telling me that dubstep and Hip-Hop together doesn't make sense. Shouts to Disc Jockey Nappy, Thugstep Commission 3 is on the way!
