State of Mind, Jade & Mindscape – Know Your Place [Eatbrain]

Out now ► https://pro.beatport.com/track/know-your-place-original-mix/6303746

Closing out Full Force EP comes a collaboration for the ages – State of Mind with Budapest dons Jade and Mindscape. The product is a track worthy of the trio. No-nonsense sci-fi synth melodies and slick, uplifting arpeggios transport ‘Know Your Place’ into the distant future before SOM, Jade, and Mindscape bring things back with a dirty, earthy reece which ricochets upon towering sub bass and tactile, concussive drums. Each producer leaves their mark on the track, which is equal parts seduction, ruthlessness, and funk. This trifecta makes ‘Know Your Place’ an authentic blueprint for dancefloor annihilation.

S.P.Y – Dusty Fingers (feat. Diane Charlemagne) [Takao Remix]

Buy Now on Beatport: http://hospi.tl/houseremixesep

Taking a step back from the usual drum & bass tip, Hospital Records put forward a four-track collection delivering fresh takes on already popular tracks from longstanding Hospital practitioners S.P.Y and Nu:Tone. With an impressive influx of remixes over past months the House Remixes EP draws together the standout handy-work of Sandy Rivera, Shadow Child, Aaron Beko and Takao.

Best known for his chart-topping track “Finally” as released under alter-ego Kings of Tomorrow, well-established house pioneer Sandy Rivera switches up Nu:Tone’s “Til Dawn” with a fresh and funk-ridden remix. Alongside is Dirtybird break-through, Shadow Child who has put his distinctive touch on S.P.Y and Total Science’s “Guidance” with a progressive house rework.

Introducing Aaron Beko as the winner of our latest remix competition, presenting his turnaround of Nu:Tone’s “Lightning”, taken from fourth studio album, “Future History”. By incorporating Nu:Tone’s rhythmic and catchy bass-line his remix maintains the essence of the track all the while establishing a new identity as a down-tempo tech-house banger.

Runner up of our S.P.Y remix competition is Takao with his take on S.P.Y’s “Dusty Fingers”. Infusing an infection bass-line with catchy vocals looped throughout he has managed to transform the quintessential S.P.Y elements into a fully-fledged deep house, dance-floor filler.

The waiting is finally over… We’re about to unleash your soundtrack for the next Music week in Miami and it’s packed full of exclusives. With no less than 28 brand new cuts accompanying you onto one of the world’s hottests beaches, prepare for the smooth riding riddims of Ram Records to envelop the US and beyond.

From label stalwarts Delta Heavy, to new signees Teddy Killerz and championed guests Gerra & Stone, there’s a musical taste to suit every palette. Whether it’s from a renowned roster artist or a relative newcomer, this compilation bursting with heaps of exclusives is the only way to launch you headfirst into the innovation drum & bass is renowned for.

Carefully finessing this album, the Ram imprint is about to drum & bass for a transatlantic journey. It’s a showcase of what the genre can offer… electric vibes which pulses through its veins and cherished memories of a tempo which pulls you into the morning’s early hours.

But with the Miami conference pedestalling every major genre which has made electronic music so popular, there would be a void if Ram didn’t step up. And as one of the most withstanding labels from the last two decades, they’ve delivered with immense style. You’re provided with a host of smooth basslines and hotly tantalising vocals to take you from pool-party to clubs at some of the most renowned districts.

Audio is first to deliver, crashing in at full speed and leaving no survivors with the tear out anthem which is ‘Combust’. Then taking you into a web of technicality and meticulous composition is Calyx & Teebee’s ‘Wipe Out’. There are also a huge selection of Vips to firmly solidify why it’s important to revisit tunes which are still to this day so highly sought after; leading the way is Loadstar’s ‘Under Pressure’ Vip, which set a stunning precedent in 2014.

So, now it’s time take the legacy of Hornchurch to Miami and lay down the same roots which are still prevalent throughout the UK today. And adding that to Miami’s reputation, it’s a match which is set to make history.

Civilians Return to Debaltseve: Russian Roulette (Dispatch 96)

After a month of heavy fighting, the pro-Russia separatists of the Donetsk People’s Republic (DNR) finally took the strategically important rail hub town of Debaltseve in eastern Ukraine.

In early January, the DNR had launched a winter offensive on Ukrainian positions, seizing the Donetsk airport and attacking Ukrainian checkpoints across the line of control separating the two sides. Once the airport had fallen, the DNR focused its attention on Debaltseve, surrounding the town on three sides and pounding it with artillery for four straight weeks. The attack killed dozens and forced thousands of residents to flee.

VICE News traveled to Debaltseve a few days after it fell to the DNR to speak to some of the civilians who were slowly returning to their town, which now lies in ruins.

The Kremlin’s Secret War: Russia’s Ghost Army in Ukraine (Trailer)

The bitter conflict in Ukraine has cost thousands of lives, but the Russian government has continuously denied sending its soldiers to the frontlines, despite accusations to the contrary from NATO and Western officials.

Since August 2014, a small but steady stream of coffins began arriving in villages across Russia, containing the maimed bodies of soldiers killed in “unknown circumstances.” Some would be buried hastily at night or in secret funerals, their graves zealously guarded from prying outsiders. Journalists investigating the deaths have reported being threatened with intimidation and attacks.

In cases that the Kremlin could not so easily ignore, the dead or injured have been hailed as “volunteers” who entered Ukraine on leave from the army — heroes who fought unofficially for the freedom of their Russian-speaking brethren.

In a new three-part series, VICE News travels to Russia to investigate the mysterious deaths of dozens — possibly hundreds — of active-duty Russian servicemen who are believed to have been killed in Ukraine. Accounts gathered from soldiers’ families, human rights workers, and government officials cast doubt on the Kremlin narrative, revealing the unacknowledged sacrifices borne by Russia’s ghost army.

Fallout in Gaza: Six Months On (Full Length)

During the devastating 50-day war in Israel and Gaza this past summer, around 18,000 homes in Gaza were destroyed or severely damaged, leaving around 120,000 residents homeless.

Now, with trouble in neighboring Sinai and infighting between Palestinian factions, reconstruction efforts in the beleaguered Gaza Strip are moving slowly. With the UN warning of a growing humanitarian crisis for the people of Gaza, many fear that another armed conflict is imminent.

Six months after the end of fighting, VICE News returns to the region to investigate the progress on reconstruction.

Albino Murders in Tanzania (Excerpt from ‘VICE News Meets Josephat Torner’)

A string of murders that began in 2000 has now left more than 72 albinos in Tanzania dead. These killings are believed to be motivated by the lucrative trade in albino body parts, which some Africans believe possess magical powers.

Tanzania has now been listed by the United Nations as the African nation where albinos are targeted for murder the most. According to long-standing traditions in the country, albinos are believed to be ghosts who are cursed, but whose body parts can ward off bad luck, and bring the owner wealth and success. In response to these killings, in January 2015 Tanzania banned witch doctors.

In East Africa, one child in 3,000 is born albino, compared to one in 20,000 in the United States. In Tanzania, albino advocacy groups estimate the number of albinos to be somewhere above 100,000 in a population of nearly 50 million people.

VICE News traveled to Tanzania to meet with Josephat Torner, an albino activist who has dedicated his life to raising awareness and acceptance towards albinos in his country, while debunking the widespread myths and superstitions surrounding the congenital disorder.

In this excerpt, Josephat talks about the witchdoctor-motivated albino killings and discusses instances where family members have facilitated these murders.
