ED CASE- SOMETHING IN YOUR EYES (RED ROSE RECORDINGS)
This was a brooding effort from Ed Case, touches a little deeper than many UKG tracks. Lest it be forgotten. I notice this got a rehash for the bassline house lot last year, and it sounds gash compared to the original.
COLOUR GIRL- JOYRIDER (4 LIBERTY)
Girl anthem here. I was speaking to Simon Reynolds (as one does) and he pointed out, that the approval system for UK Garage always seems to centre on the the opinion of the 'laydeez', which is perhaps unlike any other underground music.
MASTERS AT WORK- TO BE IN LOVE [MJ COLE REMIX] (DEFECTED)
In my humble opinion MJ's finest 'early' hour.
DJ ZINC- KINDA FUNKY (BINGO)
Not strictly darkside by todays standards, but definately went off down your local underage gig at the bingo hall.
RESEVOIR DOGS- THE BUDDAH FINGER (RESERVIOR DOGS INC)
Sampled some old Depth Charge record, itself probably sampling some old kung-fu movie. 'Went off' lots.
LIVEWIRE- DEVASTATE (HARRY LIME)
Had some bait sample on it but didn't take away from drop and subsequent bassline.
Make sure and go and support these artists by buying these relea... sorry I'm trying to keep a straight face.

Kissy Sell Out.
I discovered this guy through my new best mates, Bolt Action Five. He is their cousin or something and did a pretty sick-fuck remix of their track 'Tree Friend Tree Foe'. If you listen to the lyrics in it I think you can hear them talking about Knightmare, that disturbing British childrens quest tv show. I never saw a contestant win on it...
These guys I know nothing about apart from they make music-to-ejaculate-to. Just download some yeah? I found them on Hupendi, which is a BLOGWORTHAMOMENTOFYOURTIME.
Download some good stuff there.
This guy makes electro that is serious fucked in the head.
LOTS OF LOVE X X X

Last night Mike played 'That Boy That Girl' whilst covering for Zane on Radio1. It was the first time the single mix has been played out and it was a massive honour for us to have him drop the first play.
We've played a couple of gigs lately with Example, whos on Mike's label, his second single 'You Can't Rap' is out soon and it's ace. We'll be playing with Example again on a couple of Plan B's dates, also playing will be another sick The Beats artist Professor Green who you should also know well. If you don't already, click these:
Feb 1st - Plan B @ Leeds, Cockpit feat. Example and Hadouken!
Feb 9th - Plan B @ London, Shep Bush feat. Example, Professor Green and Hadouken!
CLICK MY LINK BABY
Next in line for the Hadouken refit treatment: FORWARD RUSSIA!

These guys (and girl) seem pretty elusive, I couldn't find much information about them, and to be honest I didn't really look. Because I am lazy. And so are you. Their music positively hurts my ears. But I, like an emotionally broken spouse of a wifebeater, I just keep on going back.
They must have been named after the Gringer's alter ego in He-Man and the Masters of the Universe. A Journalist cock would say something like... ''its early Yeah Yeah Yeahs (before they lost that 'pizazz') meets a band that everybody namechecks, but no one has actually heard via something that is not a physical place.'' Hope that helps.
If you haven't heard them then check them. I heard about them ages ago but forgot to tell you about them. Honest. The Rapture met Death From Above 1979 and turned gay. Modular recordings, aussie indie is hot, blah blah blah...
