Debut 12 from Welsh production crew Darkhouse Family aka Don Leisure and Metabeats hailing from Cardiff & Barry.. Heavy synth-work, syrupy melodies, processed sample snippets with tough kicks and hard snares in a freeform collision make their debut EP a heavyweight production.. ”Stay Blazed” as featured on Producer No.2 delves straight in knee deep..sweet yet edgy, building an uplifting energy leading perfectly into the rude 808 bump of ”Number 43” with sirens and applause for the switch midway.. ”Mein Atari” is a dangerous, skunked out bomb of console-slop with Mr. Dibiase’s mix flipping the madnessas only he can. Finally, ”Mixed Grill” smooths things on a deep and spacey 80’s trip. Tip!

New 6 track EP from Mark Pritchard (Harmonic 313) and Steve Spacek. ‘How Does It Make U Feel’ pushes the sonic vapors of ‘Blen’ into a futuristic bass anthem, replete with bubbling 303 bass, sonar synths and Spacek’s commanding falsetto. Taking on the icy blueprint of Grime’s early, street-stalking strains and updating them with far more warmth and depth, ‘Said Speed’, ‘Lash Out’ and ‘Boingy’ are some of the most speaker-shredding tracks in recent memory.

Pressed on 180 gram vinyl and shrink wrapped within a full colour gatefold sleeve. One half of Digital Mystikz, Mala will release his first album Return II Space after a hiatus of one year or so. Well, we say album, the catalogue number is DMZLP001, but Mala  real name Mark Lawrence  is simply viewing this vinyl triple-pack as a chance to release some of the productions that have been highlights of his DJ sets. ”To me it’s just a triple pack really but I guess it is [a milestone]”! Highly recommended and with most DMZ releases it will be immediately sold out when it reaches the streets!
