Croatia’s Luka Modric wins 2018 Ballon d’Or, football’s most coveted award, having helped take his country to the World Cup final and helping his club, the Real side, retain their Champions League crown for the second year running.
Croatia’s Luka Modric arrives on the red carpet at the 2018 Ballon d’Or ceremony. Modric is one of the favourites to win football’s most coveted award, having helped take his country to the World Cup final before being beaten by France in Moscow. The 33-year-old was also brilliant in the Real side that retained their Champions League crown for the second year running, and the Spanish club would love to see him succeed 2016 and 2017 winner Ronaldo, who has since left the Bernabeu for Juventus.

Long time regular label guests Ulterior Motive take a break from their Metalheadz duties to deliver their first ever solo release for Shogun Audio, ‘The Real EP’. Drawing across the deep rolls of the title track featuring Pendulum’s Verse on vocals to the liquid gold of ‘I Remember’ through to the proper riddims of ‘Jungle Jam’, Ulterior Motive yet again demonstrate their formidable production styles that have seen them become one the most sought after drum & bass artists in the scene today.
“’The Real EP’ is our first solo project since 2015 and our first ever solo release for Shogun. We really enjoy the diversity that an EP offers and wanted to showcase a wider spectrum of what we’ve been working on over the past 12 months. We teamed up with Verse to bring back some of the blueprint UM sound with a modern twist. As always we like to look back to look forward, ‘The Real EP’ is a nod to the past as we look to the future.” Ulterior Motive 2016
