Welcome to the first show of the New Year. I love all the end of year listmania’s (http://www.factmag.com/2010/12/25/best-of-2010-5-sinden-slackk-twin-shadow-lazer-sword/) and everything but its a relief to finally get over that and concentrate with what is going to be in store for 2011…plus Christmas is always far too longed out for my liking. Lets get down to the music matters of the next few months then! Time for a studio guest to usher in the New Year. I couldn’t think of anyone more fitting than bringing in Duke Dumont – he’s always been a producer paving his own path, his sound constantly mutating. To be honest fuck knows what he was going to bring in when I asked him to fill a memory stick up with his new tunes – there’s always quality there thats for sure. We got first plays on his new material for Ed Banger’s next compilation due this year and some more fresh off the hardrive beats. Another cool thing to come out of this interview was a few days later Duke rustled me up a sick rap beat for my mixtape with Gucci Mane ‘Free Gucci 2′: The Great Burrrtish Edition’ – the sequel to Diplo’s and soon to be premiered on this very site!
