It's time we had a proper hard Dubstep chune up on the blog. She's Got Moves pairs up Newham Gennie's Footsie and the ever versatile Doorly on the buttons. The production is unquestionably heavy and would likely be classed as 2-Step or Garage if it weren't for the Grime vocal. To yours, it sounds a bit reminiscent of certain Grime tunes circa 2007-08 smarted up with stereo wide bass stabs and Benga-like Detroit sonar. The track appeared previously on April's customary Addicted to Bass 2011 Ministry compilation and again earlier this month on Doorly's own Pigeonhole This! label along with three less impressive works. Sure enough, there has been some dispute over this song's musical traits, which is ultimately laughable considering it's relatively simple construction. The other key element that makes She's Got Moves a winner is Footsie's meta-bars (now I'm asking for it) which offer up a club-dream scenario one might encounter while listening to this song in the club etc. etc. Look here for a chance to do just that.

In order for something to grow, it needs special attention, care, and time spent nurturing its growth process.
Renaissance noiZ's style is ever growing and developing, but remains grounded upon the foundation of roots reggae. DJ da Vinci's first creation displays a refreshing variety of reggae styles all mashed up in one 80 minute improvised set.
This is Part 1 of 2 of the Renaissance noiZ EP so sit back, relax and let it ride on through :) The second half will be posted soon. Until then, enjoy people!!
To own a handheld, tangible copy of this here mixtape....

A small, intimate setting for relaxing and listening to reggae music in a "strictly vinyl" style, as well as performances by a slew of different artists who know how to entertain a crowd.
"The last time I went, the performers are literally in front of you singing over instrumental riddim tracks, going back and forth with each other in a freestyle manner. "
Come around 11PM for music by the DJs, and then @ around 12AM the real fun begins.
Karma Lounge: 51 1st Ave. (Btwn 3rd and 4th St.) F Train to 2nd Ave.
Music By: Jah Fingers, DJ Misbehavior & Nite Nurse

I've officially been listening to this song non-stop for the last 10 hrs or so...
Bluku... Bluku...!!! from D Double E's newest EP out on Dizzee Rascals
-Dirtee Stank Records...
The Bluku Bluku EP which was released last month has been on heavy rotation for me the past few weeks... Max Echo dropped tracks from it on one of the previous First City Mob podcasts, and this song in particular, has been stuck in my head ever since... With S-X on production (who also produced the classic - Woo Riddim) this track is a definite banger. Bluku... Bluku also features lyrics by the don himself, Dizzee Rascal, whose verse shines..
"when I release the beats.. I dont care... roll bare chest... no Jesus piece..."
this is a pure hype track at its best.. be careful listening to this on the subway you might wild-out and punch someone in the face...
this might be my summer anthem...
you can cop the Bluku Bluku E.P. here
why is this not on nyc radio station's playlists... dont u get tired of all that sugar pop sh*t all the time...?? jeez
can't you hear M.O.P. on a remix... know what I'm saying? oh and by the way the vid is supposed to look like that
