The production on this is hard. Above is the CDQ clip of the track from MJ Cole's soundcloud, below is the full track ripped from Mistajam's 1Xtra show..
WIley and MJ Cole - From the Drop [Radio Rip]
In other Wiley related news his Twitter page has been deleted, this after releasing 12 zip files full of demos, freestyles, unreleased, released and unfinished music. He also spend, what seemed like an entire month, streaming himself live on ustream. He filmed himself making beats, cleaning his house, shouting on the phone to his manager and I even spent around 15 minutes, having the pleasure of watching him eat in Pizza Express.
From complete exposure to nothing.
Wiley is now releasing a track he made live on uStream, with a couple of members of Grime Forum, on his new label Launchpad records. To read the fill story click here.
'Vertex, Shocka and Double S make up the North London trio MARVELL whose catchy single, ‘We Know’ drops October 10th.
Since their inception 3 years ago, MARVELL have been putting in the work with a strong collection of fire mixtapes, insightful video blogs, and social networking sites that boast tens of thousands of fans, this is one group that the UK supports and recognises as pure Brit talent.'
Marvell have caught my attention on a few occasions, but I have actually hardly listened to any of their material if I'm honest. Although I'm very aware of there work ethic, fanbase and tours they have already supported on. This is their new single of a seemingly endless stream of music they are putting out. Not sure who they are signed to, but they are certainly a group to watch.
'Hervé's new belter 'Together' (which takes the chorus to seminal Primal Scream track 'Come Together') will feature on the forthcoming 'Cheap Thrills Vol 2' album (2 x CD) alongside exclusive tracks from Trevor Loveys, Donovans and new recruit to the Cheap Thrills gang, Baxta.' - via Cheap Thrills.
Excellent use of the vocal sample, Herve is a master at making brilliant Dance tunes. You may recognise the tune from some TV advert or that it's lifted from a old Primal Scream number.
This will be released on the Cheap Thrills Volume 2 compilation album, which includes a second CD mixed by Herve himself. Awesome stuff.
"The concept is a Romeo and Juliet scenario between Katy B and the policeman, but we wanted to build the story around CCTV culture and the way it impacts on people's lives" - via The Guardian.
Massive track from Magnetic Man featuring vocals from Katy B, who is excellent as always on this. It just sounds as if no one else could have been on this record, I'm rapidly falling in love with her vocals.
I'm so hyped for this album, I can not wait to have a listen to the finished product and see what Artwork, Benga and Skream have made.
'Artwork charts the rise of dubstep: 'Dubstep is global, but there are still people round the corner from where I live who don't know what it is. This is my story of where it came from and where it's at.' - Article featured in the Magnetic Man takeover of the Guardian website.
Below is another track, featuring Sam Frank, from the Magnetic Man album sampler.
Third single from Plan B's awesome second album 'The Defamation Of Strickland Banks', which has gone platinum. The intro to this video has a clip of music from the upcoming project 'The Ballad of Belmarsh', rumoured to be Plan B's next/return to rap album. It sounds nice.
Along with a remix by Nero, already posted, there is a Netsky remix.
After performing this at the VMA's the studio version of Runaway has now leaked.
When I watched the performance for the first time (on an awful twitvid) my first thought's was that he should have performed Power instead. My reason's for this was that it would be a much more hyped tracks to perform and would be much more of a statement that Kanye was back. After watching the VMAs again (not on a stream) I had complete second thoughts. This Runaway track seems to sum up the feeling towards him after last years events and hopefully it will lay it to rest now.
I made an original remix of this tune about 9 months ago and then got some interest in the track once the download limit reached 100 downloads, the maximum on soundcloud without a premium account. So due to a few messages, I received from some super awesome people in Canada, I decided to go back in and re-edit because I wasn't completely happy with the drums and the mix.
'Born in Essex, Ed Drewett is a 22yr old singer/songwriter from Bishops Stortford.

'The dubstep supergroup, comprised of Skream, Artwork and Benga, will relese the LP on October 4. The trio have enlisted Ms Dynamite and John Legend to guest on the album, plus vocalists Angela Hunte and Katy B.' via NME.
Magnetic Man feat. John Legend - Getting Nowhere
Magnetic Man - Perfect Stranger [Benga Remix]
Very excited by this album, defiantly one to look out for.
I'm guessing this is the next single from B's massively brilliant album because of the just released remix. Nero always seem to produce big sounding bass driven remixes. If you haven't already got / heard Plan B's album yet, then I don't know what you have been doing with yourself.
Below are my personal favourite Plan B remixes...
