10. JACE MEK – UNDERSTAND
09. SEVENN – COLOURS OF THE RAINBOW
06. BOT – FEEL THE B
04. DJ MARTY MCFLY – BREAKER MAMAS (FEAR THE PRIEST REMIX)
03. DJ MARTY MCFLY – BREAKER MAMAS (CAPITAL J REMIX)
02. TRIPZY LEARY & GDUBZ – VORTEX
The CHAMPION BEATS write up for the DROPLET EP, on which VORTEX is found, really sums it up nicely. “This bass heavy, drippy endeavour is a sonic achievement in a world of cookie cutter electronic dance music”. Check out the full release HERE. I promise you will agree.

GET MORE GDUBZ
This jam is, at the same time, a psychedelic trip, and a raging banger. Compelling in its oddball experimentation, but without becoming unfamiliar. It really stood out from the pack, and if any of you DJs overlooked it just because it was allocated to the b-side of the release, you did your dancefloors a disservice. I’m hoping to hear lots more from T3NBEARS in 2017, and even more adventurous releases from A-TRAK‘s incredibly influential FOOLS GOLD label, which released this gem.
It’s 2017! Can’t wait to see what new sounds the kids come up with! Please come up with some new sounds, kids. PLEASE! 😛
