Listen and purchase

Out today, a cheeky bonus release from the Hit+Run crew, who had planned the Road Kill compilation releases to be solely a trilogy.

One of the standout tracks on here has to be this Gojira madness from Kidkanevil and DZA…

Check more from this pair over on the Kaiju EP from Moscow’s how2make label.

There are loads more goodies on the H+R comp obviously, and there’s a limited-to-400 slimline digipack available for those  (like me) quick enough on the draw.

Keep an eye on ongoing events from the South Cali / worldwide Hit+Run crew over on their site.

Download the previous three Road Kill comps on their Bandcamp.

First Word celebrate Record Store Day with Mr Thing’s collection + Tall Black Guy, Kidkanevil & Eric Lau

Screen Shot 2014-04-18 at 12.21.12Making a beat out of selections from Mr Thing’s ridiculous record collection was the challenge, and Tall Black Guy (armed with trail mix), Kidkanevil (munching on cookies and chanelling Totoro) and Eric Lau (not sure what he snacked on) answered it. The double 7″ is out on Saturday (Record Store Day, naturally) and you can preview it below.

Enjoy the movie! Read along with the automatic transcript for a laugh.

Press Release:

A bright and colourful scenery: Shrill blinding sights, piercing foreign sounds, a fusion of disparate scents blended into a cocktail of curiosity. Fleeting attempts embrace a thousand senses in one single second. Bustling around in the shadows of buildings as high as mountains, an almost eerily overwhelming sense of contentment is omnipresent – but something doesn’t appear to be right…
Stranded on a lonely island in the midst of a chaotic metropolis, disconnected – a feeling of drowning in an ocean of overstimulus and importunities of disproportionately inflated personalities, without ever even being registered or taken notice of.
What’s left is nothing more than the ghost of a young soul, wandering about and curiously studying the surrounding, forever looking for answers that would otherwise seem trivial.

After “Kidsuke” the critically acclaimed collaboration project with Daisuke Tanabe, “Tokyorkshire” based producer kidkanevil continues his fascination with Japan and readies his latest solo album My Little Ghost. Inspired by a summer spent in Tokyo collaborating, exploring and generally refusing to grow up, the double vinyl is due May 2nd on Project: Mooncircle and features a wide range of guests including PMC’s own submerse and Tokyo vocalist Cuushe.

‘My Little Ghost’ comes out worldwide on limited gatefold, double, pink vinyl(including download code) as well as a limited edition CD including a bonus track via flau records (flau.jp/releases/40.html) in Japan.

Preview Tehbis’ Luckdaw EP for LabelGroovement

tehbis ad

The  Tehbis EP is out tomorrow, but here’s a little taster out together by Jon1st.. (scroll down!)



“…we’ve a hunch 2014 is going to be showing [Tehbis] all sorts of favours.” – FACT


Following releases from LA’s Depakote, Manchester’s Kuartz and the well-received Groovement // Volume One compilation featuring a plethora of beatmakers, LabelGroovement is extremely proud to present music from Tehbis as our fourth digital release.


London-based Tristan Williams, aka Tehbis, first came to wider attention with the inclusion of his track Higher on Kutmah’s 2012 Brownswood compilation, Worldwide Family Volume 2 – and Kutmah is a man of impeccable taste when it comes to beats. This led to Tehbis joining the big K on the much lauded Boiler Room twice: initially in April 2013 with Slugabed and Mo Kolours and again in June 2013 with fellow underground producers/DJs Esgar, Jo Def and Tim Parker. To top this off, in September FACT magazine named him as one of ten breaking producers to watch in 2014.


The Luckdaw EP (for in this day and age, 3 tracks doth indeed constitute an EP) sees Tehbis in full on stomper mode, with a little introspection thrown in for good measure. Opener Deww straight up slaps you in the face with a variety of sonic implements in its brief two minutes. With Saturday Cartoons Tehbis teams up with the don Kidkanevil to deliver a collaborative magic carpet ride smacker, while closer Bristol Way quickly builds up into a ridiculous riff that should mash up the club / living room with ease. All tracks are layered with Tehbis’ trademark offworld chords and carefully-unfettered drum snaps, with just a hint of sublime vocals to ground the sounds.


Manchester’s third and London’s seventh “official” Dilla parties hit on the weekend of Feb 1st, kicking off what has become Dilla month, celebrating his birthday and commemorating his death.

Whatever you think of the annual Dilla onslaught, and whatever you make of the Foundation selling off his vinyl on eBay, we’d *probably* all be complaining if there was no commemoration.

Preview on Soundcloud

Blurb from Brownswood!

Following hot on the heels of Mala’s ‘… in Cuba’ LP we’re dropping the third instalment in our electr*c series – another neat ‘n’ tidy round-up of our favourite electronic music harvested from the Worldwide underground over the past 12 months. Myself (Alex Patchwork) and Tom McCarthy (Black Atlantic / Earnest Endeavours) on compiling duties.

Jammed with exclusive, previously unreleased material – the rewards of endless online trawling, Soundcloud sifting and Bandcamp rummaging – Brownswood electr*c 3 unveils brand new heat from Kidsuke (Kidkanevil and Daisuke Tanabe’s new project); the hotly tipped Djrum with Shadowbox on vocal duties; Brighton based duo Anushka (on a gorgeous Moodymann trip); The Risks (a Monolithium / Hrdvsion collaboration);Metabeats (Darkhouse Fam / C.R.S.T.); Jaded Laur (repping Glasgow’s All Caps crew); PlezierAftawerks; Russian king of the beats BMBxSpaceKidLost Twin andFrank Rodas.

Opening and closing proceedings respectively are Krampfhaft – the Dutch producer behind one of the most exciting (and slept-on) EPs of last year via Rwina Records – andDub Phizix feat. Fox, whose twisted bashment-infused riddims command respect (and rewinds) from the likes of David Rodigan as much as dBridge. In simple terms Never Been is one of the biggest sound system killers of 2012, and we’re delighted to be able to include this exclusive VIP version. Also featured is Pomrad from Antwerp’s Ooh Wee clique – working the angles on a frenzied, bouncy West Coast funk tip.
