2014 is showing no signs of slowing down. As the months roll by we’re bombarded with new releases, the latest mixes/downloads, not to mention catching up with artists to get all the latest inside info.

In case you’ve been chilling in a cave somewhere and are daunted by the prospect of playing catch ups, we thought we’d do it for you. It’s time for our monthly wrap up again, looking at the hottest releases, mixes/downloads and top write-ups. Lets go!

Earlier in March we were impressed with Ewol & Espired’s debut EP on Most Addictive Records. Kids these days… Back in my day I was… well, definitely not releasing EP’s with tunes showcasing an air of maturity that’s for sure.
