Where as some people struggle for ideas, others, like Dubzta, seem to have them in abundance, which means they have tracks laying around everywhere. And that’s what “The Clearout EP” is, 20 tracks recorded by Dubzta between 2011-2015 pulled together and given to you, free!
There’s a bit of everything on here, from pure grime bangers like “Skengy” to 4X4 and Trap. There are vocal features from the likes of Hazman and Vader, remixes of tracks by Wiley, SkinzMann, Sir Spyro, collabs with Adam Mac and RSK, and that’s barely scratching the surface. You can download “The Clearout EP” now, below. Continue reading →
Out now, Moony moves away from his usual more garage inspired sound and goes back to the earlier style that he displayed on his “Full Moon” EPs. There are a mighty 6 tracks on this EP, with the original song backed with 5 remixes courtesy of Notion, Lemzly Dale, Dubzta, P Jam, and Mr Dubz, which means there should be at least one or two remixes in here that you’ll rate.

“It’s all about the energy in the mix, not always the selection”, says DSL OFFICIAL, and the energy contained in this mix is a perfect example of why you should be tuning in to his #GrimeTime Show on Nasty FM! I’ve spoken to DSL OFFICIAL quite recently, and you can read that here, but, as you’d expect, I had a few more questions for him regarding the mix, and also just how long he thinks his hearing will last if he plays bangers like this… Continue reading →
“To create music I need grade and liquid”, says Dubzta, and considering how much music he’s released over the last few years, it’s probably fair to say that he’s had a fair few drinks and smokes. The fact that Dubzta is so active with his productions meant that I could have asked him questions at any time, but with his most recent EP, “White Dee”, getting to number one on the Juno chart a few weeks back, other Dubzta tracks cropping up in Project Allout Records zip files, and the “Incredible EP” also on the horizon, now seemed a good time to find out how he got started, remixing, his future releases, and much more… Continue reading →
When I spoke to Project Allout Records head honcho Skillzy a few weeks back, he told me that the label “have a lot to come”, and just a few days later, he backed that up by giving out “Project Allout Records – Volume 1”, a free zip file of 25 instrumentals that vary in style from pure grime bangers, UK garage inspired riddims, and, of course, a few trap/hip hop influenced tunes as well. I thought I’d run the rule over the whole lot and pick out the top 5 songs in the zip so that you can see just why it’s worth the download, so here they are in no particular order. Continue reading →
Project All Out is a record label based in Sheffield that caught my eye initially by throwing out huuuge zip files of music by the likes of Moony, and Dubzta, and, as time has gone by, they’ve built a good name for themselves by turning those zips in to regular, quality releases. Despite just releasing Dubzta’s “White Dee” EP, and preparing for the imminent releases of new one’s from The Colonel, Scruloose, and more, they managed to find time to answer my questions on the ethos behind the label, what goes in to the day to day running of PAR, working with MCs, and the chances of a Grime World Cup song… Continue reading →
