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.

Fear not, Jus Like Music has the answer. Well, a few suggestions at least…

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.
