UK Grime pioneer Lethal Bizzle has jumped on club banger “Flutes” – giving the monster collaboration between Australian duo New World Sound and Dutch newcomer Thomas Newson a fresh urban twist.
With Lethal Bizzle’s blistering vocal riding over a haunting panpipe and flute riff that bleeds into a thumping bassline, “Flutes” is a layered and intense dance floor filler.
Given its debut spin by 1Xtra’s Charlie Sloth – who described it as “absolute banger” in his show (10/07/14) that is sure to smash up the clubs this summer.
Now fully dench, “Flutes” is set for UK release in September. Check it out for yourself now on our YouTube channel.

Finally…it’s here!! Quack, the debut album from Duck Sauce – the veteran New York DJ team of A-Trak & Armand Van Helden – is OUT TODAY in the UK.
Quack is fuelled by the duo’s strong connection with New York hip-hop, Chicago house, disco debauchery, slapstick comedy and, of course, UFOs. More Dr Octagon than Daft, tightly knit with skits worthy of early De La Soul records, Quack is a fully immersive journey into the land of Duck: euphoric loops, mixtape cut-and-paste and conspiracy theories abound. (You’ll also dance your ass off.)
