We’re hitting the south coast with our first Carnival Bass night ‘Move Down Low’ Featuring the mighty Doc Daneeka!
Our first night will be held at Dusk Till Dawn nightclub in Bournemouth on Saturday 2nd October. Powered by Funktion 1 sound, the Move Down Low DJs, along side Doc Daneeka will be pushing the boundaries of the current UK Funky and Carnival Bass scene.
We’ll be offering the south coast some of the most upfront UK Bass music with monthly events, mixes, tunes, and info on other events. So keep checking in!
All the tracks on this compilation have won their title of ‘Secousse club anthem’ by getting played again and again in London, Paris, New York, Stockholm, São Paulo, Moscow and everywhere else Radioclit travelled to. They never failed to get people moving. They represent everything they love about ghetto culture: the ability to create something with nothing, the energy, the positivity… who said it was all about crime, drugs and violence???”
To be released on October 19th. Make sure you grab it here.

After spending the last two years creating high profile remixes for the likes of Santigold, Gucci Mane, Radioclit and more, Mumdance (aka Jack Adams) is switching his focus to all original productions with the release of his debut EP, Mum Decent, coming out on Mad Decent in the US on October 5th / UK & EU on October 4th.
For me it’s all about Smasher which i’ve been waiting to come out for yonks. While you wait for that to drop, get deep on this cover of UK Garage luminary Wookie’s “Battle”, featuring fellow native singer Esser.
Monday’s FACT mix is an exclusive-filled session from one of the most promising dance labels around, Blunted Robots.
The work of Brackles and Shortstuff, the label debuted last year with Martin Kemp’s (Brackles’ obscenely talented brother) ‘No Charisma’, a crossover anthem that seemed to infiltrate the sets of everybody going, backed with Mickey Pearce’s ragga stomper ‘Innami’. Two more Martin Kemp 12”s have followed, broken up by Bok Bok’s seasick ‘Citizens Dub’ and another minor classic from Brackles and Shortstuff, ‘Pipey D’.
They’ve also teamed up to deliver their FACT mix, packed with unreleased cuts from the Blunted Robots camp and future label material from Terrible Shock and DJ Dom.

Here’s a free one from Brooklyn-based producer and DJ: Kingdom. Bok Bok of the London-based Night Slugs collective attested: “The genres Kingdom dips into range across the board, but his mixes create within themselves a new logic, a gutter house aesthetic that just makes sense.”
Check his Fact mix from earlier this year archived on Mixcloud:
A wicked 2 part documentary on the legendary DJ Derek. Soul, Ska, Reggae, National Express and Wetherspoons its all in there…
Derek was born & raised in Bristol, & during the late 50’s & early 60’s fell in love with the music & culture of the West Indian immigrants moving to Britain. He picked up the lingo by hanging around in barber shops & listening, & picked up the groove by buying & selling reggae records around the country.
Now in his late 60’s Derek tours the country armed only with a backpack full of killer tunes, his bus pass & an unquenchable thirst for real ale.
I bought this album on vinyl from Honest Jons a couple of months ago and absolutely love the 180bpm speedy marimba rhythms. I haven’t as of yet had the opportunity to play any of these tunes out, but when I finally do, i’m certain that it will set the dance floor off when blended with some rawkus soca!
As usual, Honest Jons never fail when it comes to discovering and putting out great music form far corners of the world, whether it be crazy African dance music to bubbling Reggae and Dub, from Latin beats to Soul, Funk and Jazz. And this release is no exception.
