There’s something about Ricky Blaze videos that just fit the songs just right. Whether it was the Uptown Julie ones or the individual ones it just works. This is another example of simplicity working well.

Hip Hop fire from Brooklyn’s Leikeli47, i can’t really find a lot about her online. There is this Noisey article but god damn does this go. IDGAF summer anthems are always a bonus and this is one.
Props our resident The Large for putting us on to it. It’s now gaining traction on 1Xtra so maybe we will see it creep more and more into the Uk club scene.
Every week the excellent So Shifty guys will bring you a performance that they deem #unf*ckwithable. You can give them suggestions on twitter just using that hashtag but ultimately they will decide. This week it’s 50 Cent and his track Disco Inferno.
Inspired by dancehall riddims and the recent work of two of our favourite producers Murlo (Quartz EP) and Dubbel Dutch (Self Help Riddim), we have decided to launch the HDD Strictly Riddims mix series focusing on our favourite instrumentals. With this series we hope to increase appreciation for dancehall riddims and instrumentals as we feel that in dancehall the productions and producers don’t often get the props they deserve. The 12th mix in the series is by New York’s Knomad, the Dj, curator and radio host who calls himself ‘the bearded riddim purveyor’ recorded a mix that is an ‘exploration of the grey areas between versions, hip hop instrumentals, and bass music’.Make sure you check out his radio show on RWD Fm. We should also mention that he recorded this mix live in one take using serato & 1200s, pioneer mixer, outboard fx & his own custom made 4 bit dub siren.
