Despicable Youth – Borderline

Buy: http://btprt.dj/1ApgCH6

50 is a major number is any walk of life. 50 is always a major milestone for any record label. But when that label is Lifestyle, you know that the 50th release has to be something special. Welcome to L, a roman numeral denoting 50. Welcome to L, Lifestyle’s 50th release. 12 tracks from some of the finest artists on Lifestyle’s roster, the album serves as a celebration of the imprint moving forward with a new fusion of liquid and neurofunk drum & bass, or, as an anonymous responder has called it, ‘melodic neurofunk’. Prepare for something beyond your imagination, as we get ready to launch L.

As ever with Lifestyle, the whole of the album is incredibly well produced, with detailed, evocative music on each and every track. The new direction is innovative, exciting and fresh to death.

Sub Zero – Straight In

Buy: http://bit.ly/1bJFIo3
Released 25th May.

Sub Zero spills his guts with a smasher of an EP; opening with the huge title track ‘Inside the Beast’, which Friction has been supporting, followed up by ‘Straight In’; a track which he confessed to Bassrush was his own Big Rewind. ‘Time Traveller’ is a downright dirty colab with DJ Limited and next up Sub Zero fires up the heat, joining forces with the ethereal-voiced folk singer Lucy Kitchen on ‘Heart’s on Fire’. Rounding this one up is minimalist anthem ‘Something for the Weekend’.

We’re not sure what exactly is inside this beast, but whatever it is, we’re having what he’s having….

Ed:it – Telling True

Buy: http://bit.ly/1KalNxx

Dispatch pleased to welcome Nottingham based Ed:it for his first appearance on Dispatch Recordings, with a confident four track debut release, entitled the ‘Telling True EP’.

Having rapidly amassed support throughout the scene, Ed:it has seen singles drop on Shogun, C.I.A. and Commercial Suicide; given his sheer diversity in style and an inherent ability to translate his passion for this music into every track, it’s easy to see why. With an astute use of samples and grasp of the technology at hand, Ed:it strives to retain every emotion initially felt into the final product, made specifically with soul in mind and consequently, finding a seamless balance between melody and tenacity.

Total Science, Quadrant & Iris – Pushin Your Luck

Released 25th May.

As spring once again takes a hold and invigorates us all, Total Science’s CIA imprint is doing the same. The next release on the infamous label sees it’s owners team up with long time collaborators Quadrant, Iris and Kid Hops for two slices of razor sharp breaks, hench bass and killer hooks.

First up to the plate sees Total Science themselves, alongside Seattle natives Quadrant & Iris with the killer ‘Pushin Your Luck’. Expertly layered breaks aligned with floating synth lines and a dubbed out vocal soon drop out to an excellently executed bassline. This one is huge – held back enough for the heads, but with such a cool bass hook, the whole club is sure to be feeling it.
