Enjoying a growing reputation after last summer’s underground hit ‘Remedy’ and their FFRR debut ‘Catwalk’, Disciples continue their momentum with the new single ‘Poison Arrow’ which is out on June 8th as their second release for the resurgent FFRR.
A co-production with underground titan Shadow Child, ‘Poison Arrow’ is house banger with a crossover hook which is propelled by booming, bouncing bassline. Between ‘Poison Arrow’, ‘Remedy’ and ‘Catwalk’, Disciples have already demonstrated an ability to weave between club sounds at will in the space of just three singles.
The original mix of ‘Poison Arrow’ will be packaged with an instrumental version as well as remixes from Redlight and Kilter.
Disciples’ roots were formed when Duvall and Gavin were the only two students on their music tech course who were interested in urban and dance-orientated music. As the duo started to work together, Duvall also started a program to encourage young people to develop their interest in music – one of whom was Luke. But it took another two years and a chance meeting on New Year’s Eve for the trio to commit to a project. They soon found that their individual strengths caused a chemical reaction when mixed together.
Working towards their upcoming debut album, Disciples’ material mixes an eclectic range of references, but shares an infectiously core sound that should infiltrate the mainstream.
The queen of reinvention, Shinedoe’s third album is a culmination of everything she has achieved to date. From the mesmerizing and melodic‘Circle Of Life’, to the dark and brooding ‘Discourse…’ featuring The Knife’s Karin Dreijer, ‘Illogical Directions’ is about letting go, about an artist completely liberated in her studio, making music from the heart and processing all her experiences into one impressive trip.
“I don’t want to make rational choices, it’s important that music can move in any direction, even if it doesn’t really make sense. It’s the only way to completely feel free, to avoid getting trapped in some sort of format.” Shinedoe
The first lady of Amsterdam, Shinedoe shot into the spotlight a little over a decade ago with a string of omnipresent club hits and an imitable style of stripped back techno with a funky edge. Over sixty releases later, her identity is rooted in techno foundations and Dutch notoriety with a pinch of jazz, funk and dub. Her third album, ‘Illogical Directions’ is bold and adventurous, introducing a seductive side to her down-to-earth nature.

DC duo VEDAS announce the release of their debut EP Exhume, which will be independently released by the band on April 15th. VEDAS is sharing the first single from Exhume called “Ruin,” . The duo, consisting of members Alex Lee and Andrew Monborne, started as a means of catharsis. “We write what we feel,” expressed Lee, “VEDAS is an open door; we expose all of our thoughts and emotions to our listeners. Music is our most personal expression of feeling, and VEDAS is the result.” Singer Alex Lee’s classical training and soaring high falsetto compliment Monborne’s distinct ethnic drumming throughout the tranquil and ambient debut.

Deep Heads, a label famed for its continual championing of the most exciting music from the dubstep genre, is proud to announce the release of ‘Deep Heads Dubstep Vol. 1‘, a 2-disc compilation to be released on 21stApril.
‘Deep Heads Dubstep Vol. 1’ is set to cement the label’s reputation for showcasing dubstep music of the highest quality. Featuring a mixture of unforgettable classics and exclusive, unreleased tracks, this compilation will both satisfy the hungriest of dubstep diehards as well as offer the perfect introduction to the genre to those less familiar with the thriving UK scene.
The compilation is mixed by George Harris, aka Geode, who is hailed as one of dubstep’s most important new producers. Geode spent his early teens experimenting with drum and bass production and has now developed a unique take on the genre; an eclectic fusion of deep-seated bass lines with jazzy riffs. A founding member of the Chord Marauders collective, the mix perfectly demonstrates the young artist’s talents as a DJ.
The dubstep that Deep Heads are representing with this release is one inspired by the UK Bass driven scene, pulling heavily on influences from UK Garage, drum and bass, grime, dub, reggae and jazz - setting it apart from the ‘faux-dubstep’ of the club-oriented scene.
The compilation is unique in its equal representation of upcoming talent, such as Congi, Audialist and Jafualongside some of the genre’s most famous names, which include James Blake, SBTRKT, Sampha, Synkro, Submotion Orchestra, Numbernin6 and Biome.
As well as the almighty compilation, the CD will include a download card for all tracks to be downloaded individually as an extra thank you to fans.
