Wiley - On A Level

She's Drunk - Physical EP (LMNL004)


Following on from a wealth of stellar releases with the likes of the Pulse X remixes, Arctic & most recently the Progress and Memory EP courtesy of Air Max 97', Liminal Sounds newest addition is Berlin-based producer She's Drunk

The 3 track EP is pretty diverse, lead track 'Talk To Them' is a ferocious opener - it's bass heavy & chops vocal samples in amongst jungle breaks while the second track on the release is somewhat more mellow if that is a word that could be used. Again, vocal samples feature heavily, this time slung over a twisted dancehall beat. Completing the Physical EP is the brilliant 'Mariah Knows,' evidence of another string to the bow of She's Drunk's production talents, it's a low end hip hoppy type that clunks & bumps about with it's heavy percussive element - probably a personal favourite from the EP as a whole.

Available as of this week both on 12" & digitally (there's a bonus track for anyone getting there hands on a vinyl copy) you can stream the Physical EP from She's Drunk below.

FIRST LISTEN: Black Mags


Shouts to Amo for hitting me up, haven't been able to get away from the tracks he's shared & for good reason too. Currently based in Bristol, Black Mags is a collective making some exquisite stuff right now - its dark, bass-filled & unforgiving. 

Having been producing for a while now they're planning to push on with releases & with support from a host of DJs already, including Asusu of Livity Sound (you might have heard some  Black Mags material in his recent FABRICLIVE mix) I'm sure you'll no doubt be coming across more from them in the not so distant future. 

Grab a listen to a couple of tracks below along with an old mix from September 2013 to ease yourself into what Black Mags are all about.
