Bahrain’s Grand Prix Sparks Human Rights Protests

Formula 1’s annual Bahrain Grand Prix opened April 17 to global fanfare, but demonstrators in the small Gulf kingdom off the eastern coast of Saudi Arabia have been protesting the motorsports event for weeks, accusing Formula 1’s management of ignoring longstanding human rights abuses in the country.

This year’s race comes at an awkward time for Bahrain’s ruling al Khalifa family. On April 2, Nabeel Rajab — one of the country’s most prominent human rights activists — was arrested on charges of insulting the kingdom. VICE News was with Rajab shortly before his arrest, when he accused Western governments of turning a blind eye to Bahraini government abuse.

Back in London, activists continue to rally against Britain’s conduct in Bahrain. VICE News met up with members of the Bahrain Institute for Rights and Democracy as they protested the arrival of Prince Nassar bin Hamad al Khalifa — nicknamed the “Playboy Prince” — who has been accused of being involved with the torture of political prisoners.

Simple Technique – Cold Steppin

Buy vinyl: http://bit.ly/1CWSVAl

After cementing his standing in the world of 170bpm beats and bass with a number of releases on a diverse range of imprints, including Metalheadz, Ram Records, Critical Music and others, Xtrah steps into 2015 with a brand new label of his own. The London based producer and DJ is proud to introduce Cyberfunk, and kicks things off with a four track EP.

Talented up-and-coming duo Simple Technique take the reins on ‘Cold Steppin’. Brooding and dark, the track shows a mature level of sound design from the newcomers discovered by Xtrah who will be part of the inception of Cyberfunk. Definitely a name to keep an eye on in future.

Signed to RAM Records / Virgin EMI, Wilkinson is the drum & bass producer and DJ on everyone’s lips, and following his chart success with ‘Afterglow’, ‘Half Light’ and ‘Dirty Love’, Wilkinson returns with brand new single Hopelessly Coping. The track features Thabo, the first signing to Naughty Boy’s Naughty Records label, who co-wrote the single along with Wilkinson. The single is released on 3rd May and premieres tonight as Annie Mac’s Special Delivery on Radio 1.
No stranger to the game, having remixed and collaborated with the likes of Ed Sheeran, Gorgon City, TC, Angel Haze, Naughty Boy, Chase & Status, Wretch 32, Katy B, Laura Mvula and Nero, he deservedly scooped ‘Best Single’, ‘Best Album’, ‘Best Video’ and ‘Best Producer’ at the 2014 Drum & Bass Awards. He was recently personally asked to remix The Prodigy’s latest single ‘Wild Frontier’.
Coming off the back of his phenomenal first headline tour with UKF in October, Wilkinson has helped successfully put Drum & Bass back on the map as a genre not to be reckoned with, pushing his sets to new limits in front of packed out crowds. Last summer also saw him perform at the Radio 1 Big Weekend, Glastonbury, Wireless, SW4, Reading, Leeds, T In The Park, EDC Vegas and a run of dates at Amnesia in Ibiza. Wilkinson recently announced his debut live show in London 3rd April at Brixton Electric. Showing no sign of slowing down, this show will see Wilkinson play his first show with a fully live 3-piece band and 4 vocalists. This summer, he will play headline live slots at Reading & Leeds Festival, SW4 and Snowbombing and will also be a resident at Amnesia in Ibiza.

Xtrah – We Exist

Buy vinyl: http://bit.ly/1CWSVAl

After cementing his standing in the world of 170bpm beats and bass with a number of releases on a diverse range of imprints, including Metalheadz, Ram Records, Critical Music and others, Xtrah steps into 2015 with a brand new label of his own. The London based producer and DJ is proud to introduce Cyberfunk, and kicks things off with a four track EP.

The Existence EP pulls no punches straight out of the gate. The production is precise and razor sharp, all the while retaining that tech edge Xtrah has become known for.We Exist’ is a lesson in tight, rolling percussion work – edits and drop outs sit perfectly among more trademark Xtrah bass hits.

Safire – Shinobi [SGN:LTD]

Buy ot here ► https://pro.beatport.com/release/deep-architect-ft-morph-shinobi/1461876

The Melbourne resident Safire has been making waves throughout the scene over the last couple of years with releases on acclaimed independents Dispatch Records, Invisible Recordings, Mindtech and now SGN.

This is the double AA side of the new single – Shinobi is a rolling drum and bass track peppered with instrumentals inspired by Safire’s mini European tour in 2014. It was during shows at Outlook in Croatia, Amsterdam and London that Safire collected a series of ‘cultural materials’ that resulted in Shinobi; both a nod to SGN’s Ninja roots, to the gamer crew and those who like it grimey on the dancefloor.
