These run of releases on ‘Existence Is Resistance’ comes from the Legendary Proto Garage Record Label ‘Same People’, and see’s Persian & Long time musical partner DJ Texsta, repressing some of their most pioneering UKG E.P.s.
The Duo helped define the early sounds of UKG & the then unheard sound of Speed Garage, Dubstep & Grime. The Duo had massive success with records like ‘Dangerous’ & ‘Well Well Well’ which is included here.
Alongside this there’s a Special treat for the UKG Heads out there, with a previously Unreleased unheard Dubplate Mix of ‘Well Well Well’, which was recently unearthed amongst Texsta’s expansive record collection. This version is remixed by none other than the UK Techno Legend Nick Dunton under his secret ‘D Ross’ dj monika that he used back in the pirate days.
The much loved requested ‘Real Love’ gets another outing, originally being the B-Side to the classic ‘Feel Da Vibe’.
On top of all this Goodness, listener’s get treated to two absolutely killer bonus tracks from Dunton D–56M alias, ‘Homage’ which features label mate & Soul singer Decarlo (Survival Dub) in a tribute to the teacher’s of the Chicago sound & ‘Medication’ which is an inspired dystopian house chugger, with a stark warning for the New World.
These are for the ‘Collector’s’ out there: Super limited one time represses.

Main Phase returns to Warehouse Rave with a four tracker 12" that shows the Copenhagen native take on both 2-step, grime and breaks. The release, Cool Down EP, sees the rising garagehead Main Phase explore the murky and dark areas of 2-step with direct nods to the grime scene generals as well as early rave sounds and euphoric breaks.
First cut on the 2-step dominated A-side, "Eski", sees Main Phase go dark with tight syncopated beats, heavy basslines and a little help from the godfather himself.
Staying in grime-ish areas, "Bluku" delivers clear nods to the grime-scene with icy synths and sirens while still maintaining the freshness of 2-step. Oh my gosh!
The B-side of the record opens up with the title track "Cool Down ('93 Mix)", an homage to big raves, hefty breaks and slashing reeses.
From slashing reeses to gully subs, the final track of the record, "All of the People" sees Main Phase make breaks workout side-by-side with playful synth melodies and mc-samples from way back when. Hold tight!

Release Date: 3rd July 2020Italian DJ and producer Lynch Kingsley returns to Inperspective Records with new album Death Cycles, out 5th June.
An eleven-track release, Death Cycles is a slow-burning journey that sees Kingsley craft rich, atmospheric soundscapes informed by his D&B background. The first half of the record is characterised by downbeat, ambient breakbeat exploration, with tracks like ‘Rites of Passage’ and ‘Distance Between Soundwaves’ expertly setting the scene. In the second half, both the tempo and intensity rise gradually, most notably with the pounding, rapid-fire breaks of ‘Acid Dream’, before things are closed out with the sophisticated liquid D&B sounds of ‘Reach Through Meditation Pt. 2’.
Hailing from Rome, Kingsley has built a reputation around his complex, cerebral brand of electronic music, which is equal parts emotional, raw and intimate. Making his debut on Beat Machine in 2014, he has since released a brace of records on Inperspective, ‘Eden’ in 2016 and a Void’ in 2018. Closely associated with the ‘Dreamers’ crew in Milan, alongside the likes of Neve, he established himself as a frontrunner in the underground italian breakbeat circuit.
An expansive, complex collection of tracks, Death Cycles sees Lynch Kingsley kick off the new decade in scintillating form.

Hot off the tails from their Metalheadz 12” success Seba & Paradox release the second chapter on their own label with two tracks jostling for the a-side position
‘Come Again’ has a chunky b-boy groove with its stab bass and synth effects. Ride breaks weave through ragga dub fx and the neck can’t resist chicken-nodding to its infectious groove
‘Lifeform’ is as deep as it gets - it’s a black hole. Bomb dropping effects and escalating distorted basslines take you on a journey with the lights off. Kraftwerk-esque keys, pads and whisper vocals rise with sharp breaks standing to attention
This is Seba & Paradox.

To mark Osiris's 60th release, label head Simon Shreeve dons his Mønic guise for a richly saturated three-track EP that pays homage to the label's Drum & Bass origins and Shreeve's own past as Kryptic Minds. From the screaming call-to-action horns of 'Regeneration' on the A-side, to the creeping menace of 'Research Methods' and the Jazz in fuelled beats of 'Always for Tomorrow' on the B-side, a return to the rhythms and textures of D'n'B contrasts Shreeve's recent outings as CUB with Karl O'Connor, solidifies Mønic as his most experimental, genre-defying, and preconception breaking alias.

Little information about the reign of Osiris appears in Egyptian sources; the focus is on his death and the events that follow. The murder itself is frequently alluded to, but never clearly described. The Egyptians believed that written words had the power to affect reality, so they avoided writing directly about profoundly negative events. Osiris is connected with life-giving power, righteous kingship, and the rule of Maat the ideal natural order whose maintenance was a fundamental goal in ancient Egyptian culture.

Cromulent, uncraptacular and soul embiggening are just some of the adjectives used (admittedly mostly by us) to describe the Globex Corp series. So here's a repress of the much-loved Volume 1, one of the least blurst entries of the series.
