Reach LDN is a brand new Label & club night that launches on the 7th August at the Garage in Highbury & Islington.

To celebrate 5 years of the Jungle powerhouse that is Run Tingz Recordings, the Bristol based imprint presents it’s 10th release on wax with a remix of Future Prophecies’ seminal D&B track ‘Dreadlock’, by none other than ‘Killa Tingz’, the aptly named collaboration between label stalwarts Serial Killaz & Run Tingz Cru – the first appearance for either artist across any of the Run Tingz’ sub labels in over a year.
The 2015 remix brings this undisputed Breakbeat Kaos classic into the present day with a intoxicating bass reese that will leave the dancefloor for dead. On the flip, the bonus track ‘Sound A Sound’ is another ‘Killa Tingz’ flick that has been doing the rounds in clubs and festivals worldwide in recent times.

Drum and bass has grown up a lot since its UK-centric formative days. You’ve probably noticed that, over the last few years, Technique Recordings has been instrumental in bringing a host of international talent to wider prominence in the scene. Names like L Plus, MaxNRG, Spectrem and Document One are now regular fixtures on the track lists of top echelon DJs for raves and radio alike. So, fresh for 2015, here’s the latest addition to this fast-expanding global operation. Meet Gradual.
If you’ve been paying attention to the tightly-knit Spanish D&B scene, then you’ll already know about the DJs and producers called Alerstorm and Ice Stereo. And you’ll know they’ve been steadily building their skills and profile for around seven years, dropping heavy releases on multiple imprints across Europe. If, however, you haven’t been paying attention then you may have formed your own misguided idea of what Spanish D&B is all about. Maybe some laid-back, sun-kissed Mediterranean vibes with a bit of classical guitar thrown in? Well, check your prejudices and think again.
These two have been ripping things up with their own brand of dark, deep and complex tear-out neuro-influenced drum and bass. They’ve given us force-laden rhythmic motifs folded and reshaped into multiple forms with layers of effortlessly technical bass and devastatingly powerful riffs. They’ve given us tight and aggressive drums that punch right in the solar plexus. That’s the style that’s seen Alerstorm and Ice Stereo cement their status in the world of D&B. When, three years ago, they recognised their complementary perspectives and began collaborating, it was clear that this team-up had the potential for even bigger things.
And those bigger things have arrived in the form of a signing to Technique Recordings. Gradual, as the duo are now known, are now trained and ready to flex their skills for a wider audience than ever before. Here are two producers who’ve paid their dues and are prepared for Technique to take them to the next level. It’s time for Spanish D&B to take its place on the big stage and show us all what it’s really made of.

In order to celebrate the release of the third set of tracks that complete Caspa’s momentous album, we’re looking back at five stand-out tunes on Dub Police that are still stuck in our heads and raise our excitement for new bangers by the dubstep legend.
