18 year old Daniel Marchbank aka Affinity has a unique production talent that has seen him dabble with everything from Electro-House to Dubstep.
Affinity’s January release, ‘Submersion’, received full support from Sister Bliss and Fedde Le Grande, while receiving airplay on Radio 1. His remix of CutWires ‘Momma Told’ was supported by Eddy Temple-Morris of XFM. Now the self-confessed ‘genre-nomad’ is back with his latest release ‘Central’.
This experimental track begins with a swelling synth line building up to a hard-hitting drum percussion. These two elements in conjunction with subtle melodic undertones make ‘Central’ his most accomplished and unique creation to date.
Affinity is currently putting the final touches to an exciting new EP, with a release date set for early 2015.
Check out his latest single here:

Jungle has been having somewhat of a resurgence in the last few years. People like Serial Killaz and Congo Natty have been flying the flag once more for the UK sound. You can even hear the influences Jungle in Sigmas recent chart topping efforts.
Well, one of the scenes most recognisable voices is back and in fine form. General Levy is best known for his seminal ‘Incredible’, but now he has linked up with Italian producer Bonnot and just dropped his album ‘Forward’.
This project makes 20 years at the pinnacle of Jungle for the General.
The album also features current jungle heavy hitters such as Serial Killaz, Ricky Tuff, Ed Solo & Numa Crew.
Strange Rollers is no newcomer to the Warehouse Wax stables having already had tracks featured on the Ruffneck Rydims EP series and also on the We’re Not Dead 3 album which was released earlier this year. Having produced various genres of music since the late 90′s Strange Rollers has honed his style to encapsulate all things dance music from oldskool rave to various forms of the cutting edge bass music of today. Having never been afraid of mixing up the genres has earned him airplay on some very high profile radio stations as far wide as America and Australia as well as some major UK stations like BBC Radio 1, XFM and Kool London.
Outrageous is more of a mini-album than an EP and sees Strange Rollers take his production up a notch… featuring 8 prime & juicy cuts of bass driven lovliness! From the hi-octane rave vibes of Dance With Me through the glitched out breaks of Follow and the jackin’ style dubstep rhythms of Outrageous Jackin’, this EP takes you on a musical journey which passes through all manner of musical madness and touches the boundaries of lots of different genres, of the past and the present… and maybe even the future…
Welcome to the world of the Strange Rollers.

SP23 is a creative collective of musicians, DJs and artists. The origins of the collaboration goes back twenty years when the crew began a nomadic journey across Europe and beyond with the Spiral Tribe Sound System. SP23 was one of the many record label names associated with the sound system’s mobile recording studio (housed in a showman’s circus trailer). Today SP23 moves from strength to strength, playing packed houses all over Europe while the production crew launch a new label for 2014.
The Music Ain’t Over is the first release from the new SP23 label. The original is by Crystal Distortion and Sirius under the name 23 Psi and is a breakneck rampage of raw warehouse rave.
Two heavyweight remixes come from Charlie Kane who is second generation SP23. Born shortly after Spiral Tribe left the UK in the wake of Castlemorton, he grew up within the SP23 family and made his mark on the scene with releases on LOT49, AUX Technology, VIM and Death Proof among others.
His Acid Overdrive Mix is a dark, penetrating, rolling acid groove, bursting with sensual atmospherics and industrial echos while his 2 Steppin Ruffneck mix tears up the bad boy vibes with a dub garage rollout.
Crystal Distortion is back in the mix with the Gotham Hijack Mix – psychedelic, dynamic, frenetic techno that pays homage to a harder sound SP23 helped create in Berlin in the 1990’s.
The Music Ain’t Over will be out on the 3 November
Andrew Diggs has gone by many names over the last few years and experimented with many genres. If it was DJ Vicious in his Drum & Bass days or Noizy Boi when making and playing Dubstep, he has always been evolving. Bass=Win has caught up with him in his, ummm, in his? Well, lets just call it Jackin’ Tech phase. Sharp snares and ominous bass makes ‘The Ghost’ into a new form of dancefloor banger!
Remixes comes courtesy of boss man Rico Tubbs, The BSN Posse & Jay-Flames. As always Bass=Win sticks its middle fingers up at genres like a 5 year old boy, full of Red Bull, out of the back window of his mums car, at the people standing at the bus stop! We don’t give a f**k and we don’t care who knows!
This release has been picking up some serious heat and plays from the likes of Hannah Wants, My Nu Leng & Eddy Temple Morris.
