What we’re listening to this week…

First up is RAMiami 2014. This release comes as Ram Records are about to take over Miami Music Week with their annual South Beach Showdown. To celebrate, they’ve done what they do best and put together another killer collection of tracks. Plundering the vaults for classics and timeless gems, this one comes complete with three exclusives from Salaryman, Mob Tactics and Bluescreens. We’ve got this one down as essential listening.

Next up is Heist’s Pest Control EP, out on Sumo Beatz, and currently number one in our download chart. Six slabs of matchless mayhem, Heist continues his dancefloor assault with the rat-smoking Pest Control EP. Already enjoying premier support from none other than DJ Hype, each of these cuts are set to cause meltdowns from the very first drop. Few artists are battering our speakers quiet as hard as Heist. Complete control guaranteed!

Here is our pick of the bunch…

This week also sees  a release from Frankee on Ram Records: ‘Gully / Away’. His biggest release to date, Gully has already caused chaos with support from the likes of Andy C, and its not hard to see why. Away is a much deeper and driving thanks to its stunning vocal’s and lush keys. Frankee’s smashing it on all angles, and this one is nothing short of massive.

Listen back to Frictions Radio 1 exclusive play of Gully…

Playaz upstart Tyke comes with six dynamite slammers on his latest outing, his Closed In EP. Complete with three massive co-labs, the entire EP is laden with rich bass drama, deadly dynamics and killer sample abuse. From the piano smacking power of the title track to the soaring skanks of Jah Jah, this rules in every way.

Preview the EP!

The last of the new releases, but by no means the least, comes from Neuropol’s Warning EP out on Fiction’s SGN:LTD brand. Bristols Neuropol slaps down a quartet of smouldering sonics. Galvanised with contemporary production flourishes and heavyweight bass, this ticks every box possible… From the sensuous title track right through to the bass-drenched slugger Dusky Brights. Don’t sleep on this one!
