Residents Bin: April '22

A monthly roundup of releases from residents of the station from March 2022.

Words Noods Editorial Published 01.04.22

Back for another round of the Residents Bin, little bit lighter this month with only seven things in there, all top quality though. We got Grove's Spice release given the versions treatment for your next big club night, we got Mars89's industrial infused dubbed out tracks out on Sneaker Social Club, we got edits from Tah Dig! for Iranian New Year, enough to keep you satisfied at least. Get listening.

Grove — SPICE Versions

Resident: DRIPDRIP w/ Grove & Bokeh Versions Label: Self Released

Grove's SPICE album given the versions treatment with help from Plaque's Yokel and Giant Swan's Robin Stewart.

Seriously tweaked out production slipping and sliding around in true Grove fashion, however without the vocals on top. Dare you reach for the versions to fill out the dancefloor? I'm sure something amazing will happen as soon as you do..

Go support this amazing artist.

Tour Dub Yorkshire — Tour Dub Yorkshire, Vol. 1

Resident: Dub Junction w/ Simma Label: Self Released

Steppas, Dub and Reggae all wrapped up into this 9 track tour-de-force from the guys at Dub Junction. Seriously heady and weighty in all the right places.

One to fill out a sunny Sunday with your pals, sure to please the crowd left right and rhubarb. Make sure you go get this one if you're into anything Dub. You won't be disappointed.

Olivia / Rapha — DDS06

Resident: Olivia Label: Dalmata Daniel
Digital Vinyl

Split here out on Budapest's Dalmata Daniel imprint with half the tracks from Olivia and the other from Rapha.

Those of you who know Olivia's work will know what to expect, dancefloor kit from the gods, churning drum machines, razor sharp acid all in an organic yet sumptuous fashion. Rapha's side doesn't disappoint either, slowing things down to a halted groove, marching onwards into the dance.

Get your dancing slippers if you know what's good for you.

V/A — Club Nowrouz / Free Edit Series

Resident: Tah Dig! Label: No Heart Feelings

Three edits dedicated to the annual celebration of the Iranian New Year Nowrouz from No Heart Feelings.

Really beautiful soulful stuff given dancefloor edit treatment for those who want to shake it. Definitely fit to brighten up your morning and accompany you on your commute into work, cant stop listening to them myself.

You know what to do!

Mars89 — Night Call EP

Resident: Mars89 & Sneaker Social Club Label: Sneaker Social Club
Digital Vinyl

Sparse dread laden cuts from the Tokyo native. Mars takes the lead with this one on Sneaker Social Club, making space for bass to the lay the groundwork, squashing hats beyond recognition and opening up the room for dub laced synths to take focus.

Industrial rhythms with a UK bass inflection from a truly unique producer. Go support

V/A — Red Laser Records EP12

Resident: Warp Speed Chug Label: Red Laser Records
Digital Vinyl

Chuggers from the Warp Speed Chug bossman, giving his flavour on this V/A of a slowed down, club banger.

Clean percussion and a bass line to keep you moving all night, really lovely bit of kit this, highly recommend for lovers of EBM with a healthy dose of trance thrown in for a bit of euphoric good measure.

Seda'h — North Star

Eatmybeat's first release of the year coming from collaborative project between Tamlin and long time collaborator, Mirah.

Quality across the whole thing, linking together all the things we love about UK dance music — Techno, Bass, Grime and Breakbeat all squeezed into one lovely four track package.

Go have a listen, it's probably your thing!
