Kris Kobach Wanted This 20 Year-Old To Go To Jail For Accidentally Voting Twice (HBO)

Even without Trump’s voter fraud commission, Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach hasn’t let up in his pursuit of finding and prosecuting any illegal voting in his home state. In January, Kobach filed his latest charges against a 67-year-old cattle rancher and the youngest criminal voter yet, 20-year-old Bailey McCaughey.

In 2016, McCaughey was home in Colorado for a rodeo tournament when she filled out an mail-in ballot for the presidential election. She returned to college in Kansas that fall, forgetting about the ballot she’d left at home on the kitchen counter, and voted again with friends on election day. It wasn’t until her mom called a few days later to tell her she’d mailed her ballot that Bailey realized she’d voted twice — both times for Donald Trump.

A few months later, Kobach came calling. McCaughey says that a detective from Kobach’s office contacted her in August 2017, and that she was upfront with him about mistakenly voting twice. They met once at a Starbucks in Garden City, Kansas and he reassured her that the charges would likely be dropped. McCaughey says she was never contacted by anyone from the secretary of state’s office again. (Kobach and the secretary of state’s office did not respond to multiple interview requests from VICE News.)

In January 2018, McCaughey learned from a reporter that Kobach had filed two felony charges against her: election perjury and voting more than once, the latter of which carries a jail sentence of up to 13 months.

Kobach is the first and only secretary of state in the country with the power to prosecute these kinds of cases. In 2015, he convinced the state legislature to give him prosecutorial authority, arguing that widespread voter fraud warranted it. But in three years since, he’s charged just 15 people, only two of which have been noncitizens.

VICE News went to Kansas to see what it’s like when Kobach comes after you.

L-Side – Dark Matter

Our next London event – 27th September: http://bit.ly/SNB-RA // attend on Facebook: http://bit.ly/SNB-FB

Buy ‘Dark Matter’ – http://bit.ly/plv076­-V_Store

After smashing out an awesome mix for Chronic Rollers Vol. 3 earlier this year, Brazilian producer/DJ L-Side returns to the fold with his stunning ‘Love Vibration EP’ as V Recordings prepares to release his debut album.

Starting his music career as a Hip Hop producer in his native city of São Paulo and taking his influence from the more soulful side of the sound, he became hypnotised by the sounds of Drum & Bass and gained fans in the scene such as DJ Marky, Bryan Gee, LTJ Bukem, Bailey, Doc Scott, among others. L-Side signed to the V camp in 2016, and has sneaked out a few choice cuts whilst working on his debut album.

The ‘Love Vibration EP’ is the perfect mixture of funk, atmosphere, soul, minimalistic in places and deep all the way through. Opening track ‘Dark Matter’ starts as the EP means to go on with a brooding bassline and heavy drums.

Flaco – Set You Off

Follow Skankandbass on Spotify and listen to its playlists: http://bit.ly/SNBSpotify

Buy ‘Set You Off’ – http://btprt.dj/2oh0wx6

Following on from the successful releases of Specific and Atom in the second half of 2016, Influence Records kicks off 2017 with the third and final part of the Fort Knox series. First up, we have a producer that has built up a reputation as being one of the best producers of liquid drum and bass in the game. Having released music on labels such as: Liquid V, Chronic, Good Looking and Co:Lab, we are excited to have Flaco make his debut on Influence Records.

‘Set You Off’ is a classic from the late naughties and if you attended Swerve you will know that this track was a firm favourite with Fabio. Lovely pads introduce the track before the main breakbeat and vocal snippets set the pace. A warm bass takes you on a journey and that saxophone hook keeps the listener engaged throughout. Flaco switches style with a half-time, hip hop influenced breakdown which drops back into the 174 bpm tempo that we know and appreciate him for. This track works well on the dancefloor or just appreciating the music in the comfort of your home. Supported by LTJ Bukem, Marky, Fabio, Bailey, Flaco, Stunna and Aaron Jay.

Trex – Raptor

Skankandbass returns to London for their second event, 8th March 2017. Attend on Facebook: http://bit.ly/SNB2-FB
Buy tickets on UKF: http://bit.ly/SNB-UKF2 // Buy tickets on RA: http://bit.ly/SNB-RA2

Released 20th February 2017.

Mac II Recordings originated during the golden era of drum & bass. After the notorious London record shop De-Underground Records stopped trading, Randall and Coolhand Flex wanted to keep the DIY spirit alive. Bringing together their A&R might, the two producers sought after artists who shared the same ethos. One of these artists is Trex, a long-time drum & bass fanatic from Camden who’s received a huge amount of support from the biggest players in the scene. Whether that’s Ram head honcho Andy C, or tastemakers Bailey or Grooverider, he’s been working steadily in the studio for a period of years, chiselling a name for himself amongst the generations of music lovers who would have once been the customers at De-Underground Records.

The forthcoming EP from Trex is a four-track package which features a host of punchy, aggressive rollers which show no mercy on their listener. Trex doesn’t bow to any commercial standards and delivers piece after piece of a nasty, sonic artwork. The ‘Treatment’ EP begins with ‘Raptor’, a track which surges with energy but is still understated in the way it creeps up on its listener. Filled out with clattering percussion and pitched up frequencies, Trex proves why he’s garnered so much support from a whole range of high-profile DJs.

After a year-long hiatus, Mind Vortex return with brand new sonic cut ‘Shall We Begin’, a track that’s been played out across the club circuit repeatedly throughout the last six months and marks the start of their four track digital EP. Well known for creating dancefloor anthems which have opened sets for some of the scene’s biggest players, including Ram Records label head Andy C, Mind Vortex have once again delivered another climatic cut for the imprint.
Having dominated both the Beatport drum & bass and Radio1xtra’s charts with their subsequent releases, they’ve received support from the likes of tastemakers Zane Lowe, Mistajam, Grovverider, Bailey, Crissy Criss and DJ Hype. They’ve also become just as notorious behind the decks, making weekly DJ appearances across Europe, Australia and the US, pushing their sound into every corner of the globe. The track will also be aired as an exclusive on Andy C’s first Beats1 show debuting on 13th January.
‘Shall We Begin’ rolls out in a typical fashion, moving forward on a cinematic intro with robotic vocal samples giving you a foreboding glimpse into the direction Mind Vortex are taking you. Suddenly you’re pulled through hard-hitting beats and a rampant bassline, intermittently grinding into every drop, with crunching snare adding to the track’s weightiness. Mind Vortex doesn’t disappoint, with a comeback sure to resonate across both new and old audiences. 2017 is looking to be another ground-breaking year for the producers, with the subsequent three parts of this EP forthcoming over the next few months.

National Anthem Protests Are Spreading To High School Football (HBO)

“The police’s duty is to protect and serve, and if you feel like they’re not doing that, then you need to speak up,” Berkeley High School senior Armani Turner-Jenkins told his teammates in a locker room meeting.

He’s among the young people around the country turning what was a national controversy started by NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick — who hasn’t been standing during the national anthem to protest the treatment of African-Americans by police officers — into their own local protests.

“All of us were thinking about it soon as we saw Kaepernick do it one day,” team captain Jaden Lewis told VICE News correspondent Jay Caspian Kang. “We’re like, ‘Let’s stand up with these other teams, with these other players. Let’s take it serious.’”

Protests against racism are not new to Berkeley students. Last year, a student left a threatening message on a computer in the school’s library, prompting more than half of the student body to walk out of class. In 2014, a noose was left to hang on a tree on campus.

“That’s my history that you’re kind of just disrespecting and putting it out there, and it’s not funny,” team captain Brandon Bailey said.

The Berkeley football team, inspired by Kaepernick and with the support of their coach, decided to take action in the form of a protest.

“We’re kneeling down to stand up for black oppression and police brutality, and with us locking arms it shows that we’re doing it as a team and we’re united in what we’re doing,” Bailey said.

Saxxon feat. Jon Scott – The Only One

Download: http://bit.ly/Saxxon-Scott-V_Shop

Jazz and Drum & Bass have always provided a perfect synergy, and Liquid V has always championed this union with previous releases from the likes of Peshay, Cleveland Watkiss and Utah Jazz proving the combination’s winning formula. Following on from this Saxxon teams up with renowned trumpeter Jon Scott for the New Adventures in Modern Jazz EP, a new fusion of classic Jazz sounds and forward thinking D&B.

No stranger to the Drum and Bass scene, Saxxon has already achieved considerable success as one half of production outfit Savage Rehab. With previous releases on some on D&B’s most respected labels, the duo really made a name for themselves with the 360 Degree EP, as well as the brilliant 4Ward EP on V Recordings. Support for these EP’s came from Bailey, LTJ Bukem, Bryan Gee, Crissy Criss, Fabio and many more. Now producing under his Saxxon moniker he has continued that success with releases & remixes on the likes of Spearhead, Co-Lab Recordings and Proper Talent.

A member of Jools Holland’s band and one of the UK’s premier trumpet players, Jon Scott adds his authentic touch to this collection. Combining first class production with the virtuosity of Jon Scott, the New Adventures of Modern Jazz EP fuses the laid back, freeform style of Jazz with the chilled beats of Liquid Drum & Bass.

The Only One, takes elements of soul & jazz, and marries them to a somersaulting bassline. Light trumpet flourishes combined with delicate flute playing create the perfect hybrid of the two genres.

Since releasing his first ever tune on Med School in 2006, S.P.Y has been the name on everyone’s lips. With previous releases on Innerground, Spearhead, Critical and Metalheadz, to name but a few, S.P.Y signed exclusively to Hospital at the start of 2012, bringing in the deeper, darker sounds of the underground and keeping things fresh with his unique, sub-genre spanning music. This year alone he has impressed with the “Love & Hate EP” and vinyl-only release “Future Tense feat. Jo-s / Roll The Dice”. Now he brings us his debut album “What The Future Holds”. Prepare to be blown away.
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.

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.
Featured vocalists include Diane Charlemagne, who was immortalized in “Inner City Life” and lends her powerful soulful tones to “Hammer In My Heart”, and Ian Shaw — one of the UK’s finest jazz vocalists (named Best Jazz Vocalist at the BBC Jazz Awards in 2004 and 2007).

“What The Future Holds” is an incredible, awe-inspiring debut from S.P.Y which will capture the imagination of D+B fans from across the board.
