As Mary Anne Hobbs once said, you support an artist best by listening to the stream while it’s available. Once offline, you’re invited to download this for repeated listening.
London’s PMR Records kickstarts with a new single by Julio Bashmore. The EP starts with the Battle For Middle You, which is already one of the best tunes I’ve heard this year. Not quite sure why it keeps reminding me of 12th Planet’s Get Down, it’s probably just the lyrics.
The rest of the EP continues a bit calmer, but never the less every single tune is worth getting yourself a copy.A1. Battle For Middle You
A2. Ask Yourself
B1. Everyone Needs A Theme Tune
B2. The Horn That Time Forgot
In the meantime a remix by new Ramadanman moniker Maurice Donovan has popped up on the PMR page on SoundCloud. You can listen to the stream below, but I haven’t found any info regarding the availability of the track.
“Everyone Needs A Theme Tune” is already available from Rush Hour and Juno has it for pre-order. Or simply get the digital release on Bleep or iTunes.
Feb 14, 2011 The remix EP is available now, featuring mixes by Maurice Donovan and Midland
A teaser to the upcoming Future Bass compilation was released not long ago. Now Soul Jazz posted one of the tracks on their SoundCloud page, this time by Bristol’s Ramadanman.
Future Bass will be out on CD and vinyl in late September, we’ll keep you posted on the release.
One of the first names when it comes to bridging the gap between dubstep and deep techno, former Ruffage Session host Ramadanman has been among my favourites for a while. For the Bestival blog, he has put together this mix including loads of unreleased tunes.

You might remember Serbian label Svetlana Industries from the mixtape I mentioned last November.
As of tomorrow, their first 12-inch will be in stores. It comes from Bosnian producer Filtercutter and is backed by a remix from Hessel Audio head Ramadanman out of Bristol.
A. Filtercutter – 1UP
B. Filtercutter – 1UP (Ramadanman Refix)
You can listen to the original version on YouTube, here is a clip of the remix:
The 12-inch is already available from Boomkat and Juno, the digital release should be on the Svetlana shop real soon!
And in case you missed it the other day, Svetlana is also giving away a free remix from Filtercutter.
Laurie Osborne, better known as Appleblim, is the mastermind of the still young Apple Pips label. With only five releases it has already established the reputation of being among the most interesting dubstep labels.
Apart from his hot hand to pick great musicians, Appleblim has also proven a great sense for the label’s artwork. Bristol based VJ and design outfit Vector Meldrew continues that tradition for the label’s first music-video, a cute vector animation incorporating Apple Pips graphics.
To get a copy of Ramadanman’s track, you can order the 12-inch or get the download from all good stores. You should also check out Vector Meldrew‘s portfolio on Vimeo!
