SPY – Nightcall (Hospital Records)

More deep business from spy!



S.P.Y. – What The Future Holds – Hospital Records



So you may have noticed SPY’s new debut album on Hospital records! Its a quality LP and I’d expect nothing less from this legend of dnb.

If you havent snagged a copy yet yourself, head on over to the hospital shop and pick up a copy now!



Along with this eagerly awaited launch spy’s been doing the rounds with the interviews, go check out what the man himself has to say:




Fresh Tunes

Morning all,

A few new previews are surfacing of some upcoming badness from various producers


Total Science & SPY ft. Kevin King – Past Lives – Lenzman Remix

A wicked tune in its day, the original still gets a rinsing once in a while on my decks. The Lenzman remix, in true Lenz’ style, rounds off the sharp edges and makes it roll like a fuckin’ wagon wheel. Nice

Forthcoming on the 5th Nov on CIA


RAMM 124 – Calyx & TeeBee – Pure Gold/Perspectives

More previews from the RAMM camp, this ones looking promising! Yet more singles from Calyx and Teebee! A wicked pair of tunes, but I’d like there to be some left for the album! hehe.

Out on Oct 29th


Dispatch 63A – Roxy Music – Zero T

Zero T has been a little quiet of late, his footprints label hasnt really put anything out for a while either. So its nice to see him come back into the fray with a much anticipated single on Dispatch.

This ones a bit more chillout than I’m used to on Dispatch, but a great track none-the-less!

Coming Oct 22nd

DRS – I Dont Ususally Like MC’s, But . . . (Soul:R)



With a reputation now stretching well over 15 years, DRS is a truly versatile MC, host, lyricist and recording artist. Cutting his teeth and touring worldwide with the legendary Good Looking label, his soulful style on the mic and honest lyrics are unmatched. In recent years, he has been an integral part of the Soul:r camp, recording tracks with Mist:ical, Calibre, Marcus Intalex, and Lynx & Kemo and appearing as resident MC for Soul:ution and A Bunch of Cuts nights. To show the versatility and wide appeal of his unique style, in 2012 he has now become part of the Toddla T sound system as Toddla T’s official MC. On top of all these achievements, DRS is also head of the Estate Recordings label in Manchester, part of hip-hop crew Broke’n’English, (alongside fellow MC Strategy and DJ Konny Kon), and a respected recording artist in his own right with a massive hit ‘D.F.T.F’ on Metalheadz alongside Need For Mirrors kicking off what promises to be the best year yet for this talented Mancunian.

His recent output including the massive Count To Ten with Enei and Holding On with Lenzman have really set the bar high for the rest of his new album, but we wont be dissapointed. A quick flick through the tracklist reveals an album literally brimming with talent:


1. Soul Remember ft. Fox (Prod. Dub Phizix)
2. Blackhearted (Prod. Lynx)
3. Autonomic (Prod. dBridge)
4. Do What? (Prod. Genotype)
5. Star Voyager ft. Jenna G (Prod. S.P.Y)
6. It Ain’t Easy ft. Kim Nishikawra & Tyler Daley (Prod. Marcus Intalex)
7. Play Wid Fire (Prod. Dub Phizix)
8. Renegade ft. Kemo (Prod. S.P.Y)
9. Holding On ft. Jehst & Riya (Prod. Lenzman)
10. Keep The Faith (Prod. Calibre)
11. Count To Ten (Prod. Enei)
12. Bun Ya ft. Strategy, Fox, Skittles, Konny Kon & T Man (Prod. Dub Phizix & Chimpo)
13. Habitual (Prod. Calibre)
14. Raindrops ft. Pete Simpson (Prod. Lenzman)
15. Music To Me (Prod. Marcus Intalex)


Now that’s what I call an album. Cannot wait for this one.

S.P.Y – What The Future Holds (Hospital Records 219)

Hot on the heels of the Love & Hate EP released earlier this year on Hospital comes the long awaited full length album from Spy; What The Future Holds.

A long time veteran of the dnb scene, he’s earnt much respect from everyone for his consistent delivery and true versatility. Many people lauded his signing to Hospital who have gone from underground figure head status, to commercial icons in a few short years. This was followed by quite a dilution of quality from the label,  which is a shame. Having said that though, the last few releases on hospital have had some great content.

You can imagine the distaste of the underground to speculate on the potential damage to S.P.Y’s sound that could be attributed to his hospital signing. Imagine our surprise then to hear the fruits of his labour, untarnished and bringing renewed faith in Hospital Records.

Previews are up for SPY’s new album on the hospital store, no doubt they’ll be up on souncloud soon too.


Its sounding pretty tasty! Once again delivering his diverse sound though liquid lovelys and dancefloor smashers, there really will be something for everyone on this LP.

Release date is set for 1st October.
