The group also includes; Little Roy, Bubblers from the Ruff Cut Band, Style Scott from the Roots Radics, Winston Francis and Hollie Cook, the vocalist from the band The Slits.

Laurent Garnier is a legend. In 2014 he returns to production with a new project dedicated to his never ending quest for new sounds and styles. Five labels, five releases, five styles, all Garnier.
The second release in this new project is the A13 EP, released by Musique Large. Garnier has been a long-standing fan of the label and its music, and here he delivers four devastating instrumental cuts that show he can throw down with the best of the new blood, beat for beat.
Label: Disciple Records

Habstrakt makes his debut appearance on Disciple Recordings with this absolute banger of a trap/twerk/glitch hop crossover track. ‘Listen’ marks the arrival of a new direction for the French producer’s sound, and is backed by a quality trap remix from Firepower Records’s Sub Antix (to follow shortly). If you like this, you’re gonna love what else Habstrakt has in store for you in 2014…
Artist: Jorge Montia
Release: My Feelings / Impacto
Label: Skint Records
Genre: Dance – House – Techno / Minimal
After submitting the quality of music, namely “The Family Tree”, lifted from the last in the Skint MOB series, we thought we’d invite Jorge Montia back for a full 2 track EP release on the label.
The Spanish mainstay opens with “My Feelings”, a tech house ride through the jungle, layered with sax riffs that squelch up to the rooftops. Pushing forward through the break a catchy piano line drops you back into the swelling production.
“Impacto” follows on with a less frantic, straight up four to the floor roller. Irregular interruptions that keep you on your toes break up the production to round it off as a peak time spectacle.
