The title track from this digital-only EP is given a cheeky update with Belgian vocalist Billie providing a polished vocal hook, “We Can Only Live Today (Puppy)” is a hands-in-the-air anthem with uplifting synths, sing-a-long lyrics and plenty of dancefloor punch. Remixes come from Camo & Krooked, Lemaitre and Modek.
Check out the amazing video by Andrew Attah too, in which he rides down a hill at frightening speed on a board with tiny wheels, and avoids getting arrested by the Welsh police! (Please don’t try this at home).

Danny Byrd is back with none other than legendary jungle MC General Levy. Kicking off with a turbo-charged intro, “Blaze The Fire (Rah!)” fuses dancehall sensibility with Danny Byrd’s trademark high energy sound – all punctuated by the General’s inimitable vocal ticks and blazing energy.
Leading light of the Playaz camp Sub Zero provides a stepping 2012 jump up re-interpretation, complete with shuddering subs and grinding synths. Keeping the original junglist vibe in check Sub Zero condenses the format down for the jump up contingent. A digital exclusive from Stray completes the EP, amplifying the jungle vibes with rattling breaks, punchy kicks and oodles of old skool flavour. This one’s all about the drums. Enjoy!

Netsky was presented the award by Studio Brussels (the Belgian equivalent of BBC Radio One) a station which has supported Netsky’s music from the very start.
It is no longer a secret that High Contrast has been busy working on a truly monumental project in summer 2012. Since the release of his fourth artist album “The Agony & The Ecstasy” earlier in the year, he had been locked in his studio at a secret HQ in a recently re-developed area of East London, preparing what has inevitably become the soundtrack to our summer off the back of two weeks of sporting success.

Since releasing his first ever tune on Med School in 2006, S.P.Y has been the name on everyone’s lips, bringing in the deeper, darker sounds of the underground and keeping things fresh with his unique, sub-genre spanning music.
Now he brings us his debut album on Hospital, featuring vocalists such as Diane Charlemagne and Ian Shaw. Across the thirteen-track selection, we are treated to an array of different styles as S.P.Y blends moody sub-bass driven soundscapes in tracks like “Bass Terror” with an old-skool vintage aesthetic, harking back to the late 90s “golden era” of D+B in moments like “Analogue Dreams”. Soaring vocals are paired with uplifting synth sweeps and rolling breaks in tracks such as “See The Light”, “Hammer In My Heart” and title track “What The Future Holds”, whilst a ballad-like aspect takes over in “Love Hurts”. Things get nasty with the rough, tough, tech-y vibes in ”Back Again” and “Infiltrate”, whilst the blissed out “Kiss The Sky” brings the album to a poignant finale.
Unanimously praised across the scene, S.P.Y’s exceptional creativity and astute production skills means he is the go-to name in D+B right now, with support from everyone from Bailey, Doc Scott and Storm through to Sub Focus, London Elektricity and Annie Mac.
