D&B News:

Hello people welcome to the Banquet Drum news! If you are not aware already Repeater Sessions has moved to a brand new room 2 at McCLuskys and it has a hefty soundsystem, so excited! To celebrate this we have one of our favourite producer/DJ teams, Shogun Audio's Spectrasoul manning the decks so come and party down with us in our new home.

Onto the beats! This week the incredible debut album from Octane & DLR is finally unleashed upon us is all it's full glory on CD format. Badman Mefjus who is just killing it right now drops a dutty the dutty "Double Tap" on Trust in Music and Rockwell sees his downtempo masterpiece "Childhood Memories" remixed by Neosignal and Metrik. We also have beasts from Maztek, John B and Dub Phizix and Skeptical!!

Octane & DLR head up the promo section as well with the 2nd vinyl part of their epic album project which feature's a beautiful yet gritty remix of "Let You Go" ft Marion. Also Harvest drop some dirt on Grid with "The Call" and "Bare Riddim" and Technicolour and Komatic shorten down to Technimatic for SGN LTD so they can deliver some soul entitled "Unfinished Business". All these plus stonkers from Villem, and an extra part of the "Big Bad and Heavy 3" LP.

Dubstep News:

Ez Dubsteppers. So this week as promised the excellent "Mala In Cuba" was released however due to it's high demand it sold out pretty much instantaneously on the website but we have one or two left in the shop so if if you still want one pop in quick!! Also this week Mala's label Deep Medi provides us with a heavy off kilter track by Commodo not of his usual style (it's a good thing trust me) called "Buckwild", a non uniform steppa!

Continuing on a deep tip, celebrated but seldom released artists Kaiju see their work put out on Osiris. "Silverfish" and "Lone Wolf" are spatial, deep cuts that remind me of Dubstep's Foundations. Finally we have a cracking 12" from Proxima on Tempa. His "Lie Detection" b/w "Brainstem" release is dark, brooding techno influenced sound which would please fans of Icicle. That's it people hope you have a great week!!
