DJ Rap – Spiritual Aura (Bladerunner & Saxxon Remix)

Out 24th March.

The word “Classic” can be thrown around all so easily these days but there are really only certain tracks worthy of such a prestigious title, seminal works that highlight a milestone within the particular genre they represent and tracks that are instantly recognizable throughout a whole scenes following, tunes that represent a time and space and a point in the music’s history.

One such tune is DJ Rap’s “Spiritual Aura”, a tune synonymous with Jungle music’s golden era and a track that truly encapsulates all of the elements that propelled the music to where it is today, a tune that incorporates all of the integral qualities that define the music past and present and a tune as welcome on any dancefloor today as it was 20 years ago.

To celebrate the tunes epic success, to cement its place in history and to coincide with DJ Rap’s well overdue return to the UK and Europe we are immensely proud to issue a brand new, bang up to the minute E.P of “Spiritual Aura” remixes from a great combination of talent that includes some of the hottest producers of the genre right now alongside some stunning emerging talent.

We could go on about how great the release is, but do we really need to? The proof is very much in the listening and we are quite sure that with a total of eight stand out remixes to choose from that you’ll agree that this is a release definitely not to be missed.

Free Derry: The IRA Drug War

Subscribe to VICE News here: http://bit.ly/Subscribe-to-VICE-News

In February 2014, letter bombs were sent to nine British Military recruitment offices over the course of three days. Londonderry postmarks, a coded message sent to a Northern Irish newspaper, and security forces at Downing Street all pointed to the New IRA as the main suspects.

Last Summer, VICE News visited Derry and heard from Gary Donnelly – the most prominent dissident republican in Londonderry, accused of leading operations for the Real IRA – that these attacks on Britain were to be expected as part of “strategic attacks on high profile targets,” as “it’s England that’s occupying Ireland.”

In ‘Free Derry: The IRA Drug War’, VICE News investigate how, sixteen years after the Good Friday peace agreement and on the eve of the first major loyalist parade through the city in four years, dissident republican activity in Derry is increasing thanks to the merger of the Real IRA with anti-drugs vigilantes.

VICE News reporter Alex Miller speaks to members of the Republican Action Against Drugs (RAAD), who formed the coalition with the Real IRA, and meets supporters as young as thirteen who are being armed with petrol bombs to combat criminal gangs and intervening police.

For the first time, Paul Stewart, a close friend of slain Dublin Real IRA leader Alan Ryan, speaks on camera about witnessing the murder, as well as sharing insights on Ryan’s war against drug dealers.

Miller also interviews the mother of Andrew Smith, a man who she says was murdered by the Real IRA despite no affiliation with drugs related crime, before hearing from a Derry ex-drug dealer who now claims that, if the New IRA didn’t fight drugs, “this town would be filled with ecstasy and rat poison and kids would be dying.”

VICE encounter a city where kneecappings and shootings are rife, walls are branded with anti-UK slogans, and where a policeman can scarcely walk down the street – according to Gary Donnelly – “without being killed”.

In “Free Derry: The IRA Drug War”, VICE unmask the farcical veneer of the UK’s ‘City of Culture’ 2013.

Wilkinson, the hottest D&B producer to emerge from UK scene in 2013, announces Too Close ft Detour City, the next single to be taken from the album Lazers Not Included. The single follows the Top 10 smash Afterglow, the biggest D&B breakthrough tune of the year which has now sold 200,000 copies in the UK alone and spent 5 weeks inside the top 20. Too Close, with it’s intricate dub break, showcases Tabitha Benjamin’s, aka Detour City vocals, and is sure to be another cross-over hit for Wilkinson.

Wilkinson confirms Too Close remixes to come from the biggest names in UK dance (listed below), including a VIP remix from himself, all released on 24th Feb via RAM Records / Virgin EMI. Wilkinson has also confirmed the release of ‘Midnight’, a new track exclusively for Beatport.

Wilkinson VIP Mix / Catching Flies / Wookie / Frankee / Askery

Wilkinson, has been on unstoppable form since the release of Need To Know at the beginning of the year. Heartbeat, featuring Arlissa and P Money, followed in May, and paved the way for the Afterglow, featuring the vocals of Becky Hill. The tune was a huge success and a regular sound in the clubs hammered up and down the country by the likes of Chase & Status, Sub Focus, Andy C and High Contrast among others. Playlisted across Radio 1, 1Xtra, Kiss, Capital, Capital Xtra and Rinse, the video, which has had over 3.3million views, can be seen here.

Wilkinson’s debut album Lazers Not Included not only introduced a raft of stand-out singles but cemented Wilkinson’s name as one of the most exciting new electronic artists in the UK. Hailing from South West London, Wilkinson, blessed with an astute A&R ear, wanted to team up with some of the freshest UK vocal talent on the record. Wilkinson has topped the iTunes Electronic charts, won a National D&B Award, and picked up legions of fans, including some of the top Radio DJ’s!

Wilkinson played an exciting host of international festivals this summer including explosive sets at Secret Garden Party, Global Gathering, Outlook, Pukkelpop and Bestival, as well as taking over Brixton Academy for RAM Record’s sell out show last month. He continues to tour the world for the rest of 2013, with DJ sets confirmed across the UK, Europe, Australia & NZ. Check out http://wilkinson-music.com for forthcoming dates.
