Following his critically acclaimed second album 'Wysing Forest', Luke Abbott's next long-form release is the award-winning soundtrack to the British film 'The Goob'. Composed and produced by Luke Abbott in full, the LP picks up where his previous record left off.

The music was awarded 'Best Soundtrack' at the Stockholm Film Festival in late 2014. Watch the official trailer above.
NYC-based producer Hot Sugar (a.k.a. Nick Koenig) will released his debut album, God’s Hand, on Break World Records. God’s Hand is his long-awaited first full-length release after a series of EPs and mixtapes, which have been described as “eerie and devastating” (SPIN). Comprised of 16 original songs, the new LP expands upon Koenig’s production style of “associative music” where he records his surroundings and other non-traditional sources and processes the recordings into samples, which serve as building blocks for the songs he creates. Today, Complex premiered the first new track “Trauma,” (listen below) calling it “a serene, warm textured track that will transport you to near-fantasy worlds..” For his new album, Koenig – who has established a name for himself in the hip-hop underground through his productions for The Roots, Das Racist, Fat Tony, Kitty (formerly Kitty Pryde), Big Baby Gandhi, Antwon, and more – recorded everything from ’snow melting’ to ‘Neil deGrasse Tyson thinking’ using state-of-the-art recording technology.
Koenig has recently contributed music to Comedy Central’s ‘Broad City’ and a handful of other shows and was nominated for a GRAMMY for his production on The Roots’ ‘Undun.’ Hot Sugar’s penchant for creative and boundary-pushing visuals has further cemented his place as one of the web’s most innovative beat-makers. Whether through his unique music videos or interactive web experiences, Koenig’s music exists beyond the traditional realm of audio and becomes a fully immersive adventure.

From their early singles for Concrete Records to their genre defying ‘Six Million Ways To Live’ LP, the Dub Pistols have always added a much needed Rock n Roll swagger to the UK’s dance scene. Chewing up hip-hop, dub, techno, ska & punk & spitting them out in a renegade futuristic skank they have consistently defied genres & exceeded the highest of expectations.
Their genre-mashing abilities have led to remix work for the likes of Moby, Crystal Method, Limp Bizkit, Bono, Korn & Ian Brown, and seen them work with hiphop legend Busta Rhymes on ‘One’, a track for Blade 2 & ‘Molotov’ on the Y Tu Mama Tambien soundtrack.
In recent years the band has mutated from a studio based duo into a fully fledged live act often featuring the talents of guest vocalists Rodney P, Specials front man Terry Hall, rap wünderkid T.K., Sugardaddy horn-blower Tim Hutton & scratch maestro DJ Stix. The band's recent Glastonbury set saw Neville Staple from The Specials join the Pistols live on stage for the encore ‘Gangsters’.
Front man Barry Ashworth is also known for his full-throttle peak-time DJ sets across Australia, Singapore, Serbia, Dubai, Thailand, Germany, Croatia, Italy and France, to name but a few. Whilst 2010 is yet another busy year for Barry; licensing deals with Playstation Singstar & Hollywood Movies Parenthood & Piranha 3D, remixes in the making for Atomic Hooligan, DJ Love & Myagi, and his co-owned label Westway making bigger waves than ever. There is just no letting up for this much-loved party starter.
OWEN PALLETTdebuts a brand new video clip from his critically acclaimed In Conflictalbum. Directed by Eno Swinnen, the captivatingly animated video holds the already vivid narrative of "The Sky Behind The Flag" against an entirely different context, a sort of intergalactic missed connection all of which leaves the viewer to glean one's own personal meaning from the juxtaposition.
Warmduscher is a collaboration between members of Paranoid London and Fat White Family (Saul and Jack). Khaki Tears is everything you didn’t want your mother to hear. It’s rock n’ roll through a sticky, paranoid, leather-clad filter of filth and debauchery - all cocooned in 90 second gems. The album is released via Trashmouth Records.
Watch the video for 'Uncle Sleepover' above and listen to 'The Salamander' below.
Crystallise (Feat. Lawrence Hart) is the second track to be previewed from British DJ and producer, George FitzGerald's forthcoming debut album, Fading Love. It's a darker, more brooding affair recalling the fusion of new wave synths and dance music New Order first pioneered. A further nod to their brand of alternative dance is supplied by inwardly projected vocals and lyricism from collaborator Lawrence Hart. FitzGerald has described one of the major themes of the album as an exploration into the British acts that first energised his affection for dance music - Underworld, Orbital and New Order amongst others - and perhaps of all the tracks on the album, this is where these threads most neatly intersect.

But when she returns to London to polish songs for release—her debut album is out later this year on super producer Paul Epworth's label, Wolf Tone—she collaborates with the capital's most steadfast studio mentors. "I have a special understanding with Dave Okumu," she says, of The Invisible frontman and songwriter who has worked with Jessie Ware and Amy Winehouse, and whose ethereal funk R'n'B sound provides a thrilling platform throughout the album for Lowe's gritty vocals.
In the past, Lowe has also called upon a gaggle of electronic maestros for remix duties, from Hot Chip's Joe Goddard to FaltyDL and Pional. See her perform her latest single 'Who's That Girl?' for online magazine Nowness.
JD Samson and Brooklyn-based fingertappy guitar icon Kaki King both blur the lines of conventionality with their music. The remix below, in which former Le Tigre member JD throws a vibrant, energetic house spin on what was once King's dreamy original, flexes both artists' creativity to the max and displays the transformative power of what a remix can achieve. Warning: this will make you dance your sneakers straight off your feet.
