[Lunice Fermin Pierre II, a.k.a. Lunice]
Montreal’s own Lunice Fermin Pierre II fashioned an hour long mix for BBC Radio 1Xtra as of late. The result is what followers might expect, which is a good thing; a creative concoction of cranked 808′s, cheeky melodies, and rattling high-hats. A few tracks to look out for include: Jamie xx and Gil Scott Heron‘s NY Is Killing Me, Kaytranada‘s Holy Hole Inna Donut, and a freshly pressed TNGHT manicure of Good Music’s Clique (56:00!).
DJ Q out of Huddersfield, UK, just dropped this VIP of his infectious UKG number “Brandy and Coke,” in which Q integrates the vocal hook from Groove Armada’s “My Friend.” In exchange for a ‘like’ on the Local Action Records Facebook page, you can download a copy of the track.
Q recently parted ways with BBC 1Xtra after seven years spinning UK garage on air. We look forward to hearing more from him in the future.
Baauer‘s remix of Obey City‘s Neva Knew premiered on BBC Radio 1xtra’s Diplo and Friends Show last week, with Clockwork, (aka RL Grime,) and Samo Sound Boy spinning a back-to-back set. The rework will be featured on Obey City’s upcoming release, titled MY RVM EP, forthcoming on French-based B.YRSLF Division, July 15th, 2012.
Here is the original which dropped but two days ago on SoundCloud.
