My debut e.p 'New Breed' is looking to be out around the 13th December on Tipping Point featuring the collaboration with the Broke'N'English MC DRS who absolutely smashed it.
It's so far been played on Radio 1 by Toddla T, as well as on Sub FM by garage heavyweight Whistla whose also been playing it in his sets up and down the country.
Also on there is a track called 'Nervous.' Taking more inspiration from the future garage sound which is becoming increasingly popular.
Listen to 'Butcha Riddim,' the instrumental of New Breed and Nervous here -

Mixed in sheffield is 1!
The First birthday party,Digital label launch,and big thank you to everyone whoʼs shown love to the project over the past year!
Mixed in Sheffield exists because of the diverse talent in this city,and,lets face it,our unquenchable thirst for a good party!
So we're going to give you all a damn good reason to do just that.
Weʼre throwing an intimate sweaty party@SAWA,Sheffieldʼs newest good vibe zone. This party is going to be a return to the original focus of Mixed In Sheffield-Electronic music,and launches our new residency at SAWA. Its going to be a massive line-up once again over both floors of the venue. Plus Secret Library Records will be curating all kinds of collaborative artwork for the event with us.Secret library has its HQ here in Sheff,but its tenderils cover the globe.You may not know who they are,but you've probably seen their work all over the place.....
Whats the lineup?
Squire Of Gothos
Supadubz Vs Ratatatum
Tommy Vicari Jnr
Coin Operated boy
Rough Disko Dj's

This is a limited ticket event,get them while you can.SAWA only has a finite capacity,and this is going to be a squeeze!
If you haven't been to SAWA yet then this is your chance-its a great little ravebox.Tidy soundsystem,good shaped room,decent staff,no bullshit.Our kinda vibe.
Don't forget to check out Beatport/Juno/Dj download/iTunes for the latest releases on MIS.There are lots of quality releases coming through this year.We've already had Chris duckenfield,Barry Gilbey & Supadubz,pedramovich,Tommy Vicari Jnr,Ape Generals remixing Heaven 17's 1981 classic (We Don't Need This)Fascist groove Thang)..Pt1.,and the first album from UMSD just out now.

Major Lazer put out the stems for their mahooosive track 'pon de floor' which I decided to have a bash at, the vocal riff on this tune is so incredible it's ridiculous. I gave it a bit of wobble as you do but tried to still echo the original.
