Breakage returns for the fifth release on his own label Index, the aptly titled 'India November Delta Echo X-Ray' EP.
In a very short space of time, the label has become a go-to for fans and artists alike. The high-quality threshold of the label and its output has resulted in unanimous appreciation from all those listening, most notably Annie Mac who recently tweeted "Breakage. One of the best to do it."
The release contains four tracks that carry the unmistakable Index 'sound' forward once more. For the first time a guest arrives on the label in the shape of the incomparable Break for a remix of ‘As We Enter'- Break was specifically chosen as an artist that implicitly understands what Index and Breakage are all about.
The first single from the EP 'Valhalla' sets out the intention of the release. We are given that vintage Breakage sound with all the hallmarks of 2020 sonic perfection. Valhalla is the 'flag in the sand' for what the rest of the EP holds, an exciting prospect for newcomers and established fans of the label and artist.
a1. Breakage - Valhalla
a2. Breakage - As We Enter (Break Remix)
b1. Breakage - Jah
b2. Breakage - B Side Bubbler

The next instalment of the “Another Way” remix’s is here, with 2 dance-floor killers to add to your collection.
Break flips the script with “Whispers In My Ear” stripping back to a more minimal sound with wolf-like basses and meaty subs. Keeping MC GQ’s weighty vocals as the key feature was important and his middle 16 hits close and personal direct to your ear.
Break & Total Science’s “Dog’s Dinner” was already a heavy club tune, but the master of power Mefjus has taken it up to a new level. Reworking all the elements of the track with his trademark production results in a monster version that always delivers.

Interflow EP is the second studio EP by English producer Joe Newham on Houseum Records, released under his stage name Gavinco. The album's musical style is described as a synthesis or musical library of electronic sounds incorporated with the acid jazz instrumentation.
This EP is a collection of five tracks starting with the hypnotic yes transient track "Much Love" with the singer Abela. The second track "Regards" brings up the motion in the EP. That takes you on a tropical yet tantalizing trip with the solo piano riffs and arithmetic glockenspiel.
Third is "Interflow" with the long lasting journey of muted trumpets and saxophone riffs that are accompanied by the live instrumentation of drum and bongo. We then move on to the fourth track "Movate" , This track pushes you back out into the dance groove with the heavy live bass recording that has been incorporated into the old school electronic 4/4 house rhythm.
Finally we finish with the bonus digital track "Imagination" with the upbeat disco drum pattern and lavish ballroom style of house music.
a1. Gavinco - Much Love
a2. Gavinco - Regards
b1. Gavinco - Interflow
b2. Gavinco - Manner
Release Date: 21st August 2020

From the slamming science of “Ricochet,” through the jittery ghost-rave of “Survival” and the outer-space lover’s rock of “Dubbing You,” to the manic magic of “Finest Illusion,” this collection of early EPs by rave legends Foul Play tracks an astonishing evolution across barely more than a year. Some of the top tunes to come out of the hardcore > jungle > drum & bass journey? Yes, but also some of the most thrilling and gorgeous music of the entire ‘90s.
