Admas – Sons of Ethiopia

Posted by Chris Airplays, 28th November 2015 09:35am


YES! I first heard the track below some years a go on a mix and subsequently forgot about it. A friend brought it back to my attention when Andras Fox closed his set with it at Rhythm Section in London and I’ve been listening to a vinyl rip of the album ever since.

Thankfully at some point next year Frederiksberg Records will be reissuing Admas’ only album Sons of Ethiopia and I can’t bloody wait.

Dublin’s Major Problems will also be releasing a 12″ with Kalatashew Waga across one side and a remix from Andras on the other side! 2016 is already sounding amazing.

I’m pretty late sharing this as around the time it came out, early in the summer, things were heating up for record fairs and events with BTW. There’s no time like the beginning of winter to look back to hotter weather and purchase some clothing that will at least make you look warm! Purchase here.

Modern Times – LTJ Bukem

Posted by Chris Airplays, 20th November 2015 09:33am

Probably the funniest Drum & Bass documentary ever. Made more amusing by the fact most of the crew are from my hometown of Watford. A top watch from start to finish.
