Joining the dots between house, techno and breaks, the name Mella Dee really splashed onto our radar with his ‘Feel It Out’ EP on Manucci’s Mistress around easter time, following cuts that roll back to 2012. Scoring a place on our “Killers” page, the title track is gruelling tech funk built of a mutant sample and a bassline of the dirtiest, smelliest sludge imaginable.

Turns out that we’d already been enjoying his well cooked garage jams for sometime, thanks to his contribution to the Mista Men partnership he formed alongside Woozee in 2010, tunes appearing on Herve’s Cheap Thrills and Unknown To The Unknown.

Through Mella Dee, though, he’s dived into his darker side, channeling the grimier, more sinister side of the rave. ‘Estate’, which dropped onto Omena in June, is a soot-slathered slice of warehouse techno with trippy beats and swarming with sub-bass and ‘Warehouse’ is yet another warped hybrid of garage, techno and house.

Suffices to say when the opportunity to score a podcast from the man himself we leapt at the chance.

Tracklist :
1. Parris - Static Tension
2. Unknown - Time & Space
3. Oushe - Pariz Illton.
4. James Welsh - Trail Boss
5. Warlock - Sawhorses
6. Mella Dee - Estate
7. Callahan - Response
8. Unknown - Drumworks
9. Mella Dee - Reach Out 

Coming 28th July.. Automous Africa Vol III

Autonomous Africa Volume 3

—————————————-

This is the third Autonomous Africa EP, the idea being that one EP is released each year and all proceeds are donated to a charity in Africa. Last year’s second volume, along with a fundraising night in Glasgow and another in London raised several thousand pounds for the Mtandika Mission in Tanzania (more info on that below). Midland grew up in Tanzania and his parents run the aforementioned charity so it feels fitting that AA continues to raise funds for that. Midland has once again contributed a stellar track as has AA stalwart Auntie Flo (who has now contributed to all three releases). This year they are joined by Glasgow funksters General Ludd and then Twitch rounds off the EP. All being well, this year will also see an AA compilation album of music from Africa.

EP tracks are

A1) Midland - Safi
A2) General Ludd - Burning Mack

AA1) Auntie Flo featuring Anbuley - Daabi
AA2) JD Twitch - Maya

All tracks mastered by Matt Colton.

Distribution by Above Board. Released 28th July 2014 on 12”. Digital will follow.

A big, warm thank you to I AM in Glasgow and Trouble Vision in London for putting on AA fundraising nights and for their immense generosity.

Why Autonomous Africa?

———————————

Many of the problems Africa faces are a result of outside interference by other countries, and as the 21st century progresses we will see the continued pillage of African resources to feed the global capitalist machine on an unprecedented scale. Corrupt and greedy regimes gladly sell their land and mineral wealth to finance their own extravagant lifestyles while the vast majority of ordinary people see little or no improvement in their own lives. An autonomous Africa run by the people for the people, where African land is predominantly used to feed African people and Africa’s vast wealth of resources is used to benefit the people of Africa seems the only logical way forward. Autonomous Africa’s goal is to highlight this message and here presents to you 4 tracks of African inspired grooves.

We fully realise a small run, independently released 12” is going to make very little difference to the world, but doing something has to be better than doing nothing. The idea of an autonomous Africa may be naive and unrealistic, but at some point the world we live in will have to change or future generations are going to be left with very little as we consume way more than our fair share. We have collectively buried our heads in the sand thinking we are powerless to engender change. Individually we have little power but collectively, the power is ours.

About The Mtandika Mission
—————————————

Mtandika is a large village in the dry Ruaha river valley, 400km west of Dar es Salaam. It is a very poor village.

One of the prime movers in the village is Sister Barberina Mhagala. Since she retired from being Headmistress of the Primary School in 2005, Sister Barberina has been developing a Trade School at Mtandika to provide skills training for girls who are either orphans or have no fees for secondary education. She started by building a classroom and dormitory for the Trade School girls who were given sewing lessons and learning to make garments to sell.

Because many of the children do not have homes locally, accommodation is critical. So Sister then built extra accommodation blocks, not only for some of the girls attending the Trade School but also for some 80 girls attending the local Lukosi Secondary School where there was no accommodation.

The girls are taught to be as self sufficient as possible and as well and grow their own food and rear animals in the school grounds.

Water supply is critical, as water is not only required for every day purposes at the school but for irrigating the shambas [allotments]. Water is currently pumped from the nearby perennial Lukosi river some 500 metres away using a petrol pump. Investigations into a cheaper alternative are being investigated.

Education is essential if Tanzania is to fully develop its full potential and anything is possible given the opportunity. As well as supporting Sister Barberina in her capital expenditure, some 10 of the children at the Trade School and 30 at local Secondary Schools who cannot afford the fees are sponsored by funds raised by the charity.

Brighton’s Dismantle and Bristol legend Die have come together to deliver a sure fire club roller. A collaboration between the former Full Cycle don and current Gutterfunk label boss and the Digital Soundboy youngster was always going to catch people’s attention and ‘Over The Edge’ does the duo every bit of justice.

The pair raised the eyebrows of the scene on Rinse FM in mid-May as they dropped the ‘Diemantle’ smasher for the first time on radio. It’s since seen BBC Radio 1 spins from Annie Mac, Skream, Toddla T, Benji B and is being hammered in the club.
With neither producer one to be pigeon holed but both cemented firmly in the UK bass music fraternity, each has stamped their unique style on this dark and heavy roller that’s sending clubs across the country bouncing.

Due to be released on Shy FX’s Digital Soundboy label and with solid support from the likes of Redlight, Zinc, Shy and key specialist DJs at radio the heat is already building strongly for what is sure to be a summer dance floor smash.
