Just send the answers to the following questions to before 6pm Friday and one lucky winner will be selected at random....

1) Who is the photographer who takes the portraits of almost all the interviewees?

Solid Frame 'Forever (Ben & Lex Remix)' OUT NOW!


Solid Frame 'Forever' Ben and Lex RMX Soundcloud Teaser 192k by Ben and Lex

Check out our new reamix of Solid Frames 'Forever' available now from Beatport and Juno also theres a free remix download by from Hanuman Tribe available from soundcloud.

This one is epic.

Did we already mention that this is an epic release?

Massive 4 am vibes, pleasing the crowd with the perfect blend of bright city lights at
night atmosphere, raw basses, punchy drums and all-out powerful synths.

FOREVER EP is his debut release, but this soundboy has more than 15 years bass bizz
under his belt, being a member of the notorious drum'n bass veterans SOLID FRAME.

His original comes with such a wide sound, trippy sparkling effects, reverbed guitars & longing voices from outer space, pushed by a pitchdown roller of a dubstep beat. Deep & beautiful.

And the following mixes just appear in the order of a homogene and narrative line by listening to all of them, but i can tell you, they are all epic, each one a favourite:

We wanted them as remix artists for a long time, as we simply love their sounds & nature, and it was a huge pleasure to recieve an off-beat monster breakbeat remix from UK badboys BEN & LEX: big bad sounds, and a heavy bassline creeping in your ear and never let you go again.

Some tasty tricks from our very own HANUMAN TRIBE, who twisted a hevyweight highscale calories inside-out maki: comes as a breaks mix, turns into dubstep madness, and back and forward again.

We return to the spacy atmopsheres, this time topped by propulsive techy sounds from SKETI,
who made some serious riots in the breaks scene with his latest releases, and also this one is pure blistering breaks with a festival edge.

And last but not least HANUMAN TRIBE rescued the catchy synthline from an almost forgotten older banger, which one even the STANTON WARRIORS have been shaking their heads to, and interwaved it with the FOREVER sound, to give another yummi FREEBIE to the people!

Now and FOREVER. Amen.

Also don’t forget to check out the LIMITED AUDIO-FASHION package now available. Order your 'FOREVER' t-shirts / tank top, and the whole release on black USB bracelets via Riot Riot homepage!

Freerange Djs 'Party Killer / Body Switch' OUT NOW!!!


Freerange Djs 'Party Killer / Body Switch' [APEM030] by apemusic


We at Ape Towers have been looking forward to this release for quite some time and are very excited to be able to bring it to you now, much like a kiddie in a sweet shop, a wasp in a jam factory, a virgin in a brothel, a pig in. well, you get the idea

For the first time in ages we have a release that is so strong, so damn badbwoy that it is here in all its original glory, no remixes, no nothing, just 2 original tunes in the tradition of a proper AA side release. All Party Killer, No filler!!

The Freerange Djs having been carving themsleves a well deserved place with the best of the best of the breaks 'n' bass scene in the last year with their first big release 'Back to the Old Jack' in the box of all the biggest Djs and spending a total of 10 Months in the Beatport breaks 100!!

And If you have seen the troublesome trio live then you will know what all the fuss is about!

This new double header is not an 'A' & a 'B' side but 2 tunes of equal might and measure that we felt would be a shame not to release all on their own as a AA release.

'Party Killer' is already Tune of The Month is Mixmag and 'Body Switch' has been getting even stronger reactions than 'Party Killer' every time it's been dropped!

No need to desribe them really, they are certified bangers and we hope you like.

Support from NAPT, Hyper, Freestylers, Peo de Pitte, Pyramid, Ctrl-z, Lady Waks, Anna Kiss and a truck load more!


Freerange Djs 'Party Killer'

Though not a household name yet, the trio continue to raise their game and are well on their way, further cementing their names as future stars with this absolute stomper.

The bassline is, for lack of a better word, really squidgy. The funky drums feature some radical, quirky programming.

The structure takes some unexpected but welcome detours. It’s a great big grease ball and we love it.
