This is a bit of a strange one, but there’s a new Massive Attack demo suddenly doing the rounds on the internet. Supposedly sprung up yesterday on the Massive Attack Facebook page, it’s already causing quite a furore. It’s the first new Massive Attack material since 2009′s Heligoland – that’s of course if you don’t count the split 12-inch release with Burial.
Anyway, here’s the demo as posted on a mysterious Soundcloud page…

In the first episode in Red Bull Studios‘ new documentary series, The Producers, we get a look at Benga in action at the studio working with singer Youngman. Each week, Red Bull Studios will focus on a different producer and give a unique glimpse into their production styles and other such musical quirks!
Youngman is signed to Shy FX‘s label, Digital Soundboy, and came together at the studio with Benga to work on a track called Choose One for Benga’s … [read more]
This remix of the Fugees‘ track Fu Gee La, by Israeli producer LuqMan, was brought to my attention last week by Wrongg who played it as his last selection on our radio show. LuqMan has stripped the track back and then added his own distinctive heaavy groove, which it has to be said is more addictive than crack.
You can actually download the track for FREE via LuqMan’s Soundcloud page…

It’s a conundrum that’s faced producers since the dawning of the dance age. Scientists have poured over the problem (possibly), governments have invested billions into researching a solution (probably), but no conclusive agreement has been reached. So, just how do those who make music hidden away in bedroom studios, twiddling knobs and coaxing beats out of fried laptop processors, bring their toiled-over productions into the arena of live performance?! Fear not, Jus Like Music has the answer. Well, a few suggestions at least…
1. The … [read more]
The latest edition of The Jus Like Music Show on NTS is now available to stream and download via our podcast feed. We had friend of the show, Wrongg (aka Wannabeats, aka Roni), over from Tel Aviv live in the studio to spin an all-Israeli set.
We also had a chat with Wrongg and he explained exactly where the scene is at over in Israel now. Sounds like it’s in a good place! Beyond that, we also dropped new tracks from fLako, Salva, Full … [read more]
So, this one was a bit of a bolt out of the blue. Plug, aka Wagon Christ, aka Luke Vibert, has a load of unreleased d’n’b stuff from 1996 that Ninja Tune are going to drop in January. This material was meant to be post-release of Drum ‘n’ Bass for Papa, which long-time fans of Mr Vibert will no doubt be familiar with.
I’ll keep this brief, because we’re not really about the hard-sell or anything, but basically the good guys at Dragontape have created a Jus Like Music app for the iPhone and iPad. It gives you access to exclusive video mixtapes curated by us here at Jus Like Music. The app is like 69p/99c and it will probably enrich your life or something. You can get it on the app store right now.
We will regularly update the app with new mixtapes and will endeavour … [read more]
Following on from the other week’s Portico Quartet remix by YULT, we now have a new video for the track Ruins, which is lifted from the forthcoming self-titled Portico Quartet album. You can also download the track for FREE by going to the website of Real World Records, their record label.
The new album is their third full release and will drop in January 2012. It’s the first release to feature new band member, Keir Vine, and the guys have now embarked … [read more]
The masked man of independent hip-hop, MF DOOM, was at Red Bull Music Academy last week in Madrid to give a lecture. We covered Red Bull Music Academy when it was in London last year and, as always, it featured a plethora of vastly interesting topics and characters; Moodymann was a particular highlight! Anyway, as part of the first semester at this year’s Academy, MF DOOM came to talk to the participants. He raises some particularly intruiging points regards the use of personas … [read more]
