And we're oh so glad these tunes have a home. Tip! 'Fuck Reality 06' is set for release September 13.

Earlier this year Basic Rhythm (aka East Man, aka @hikteksound) released album ‘On The Threshold’ via @PlanetMuRecords. The neat 10-track outing explored the beauty in brutalism, and the colour in gloomy, angular rhythms – all written with DJs in mind. Now, he’s back on the label with a banger of an EP which features this banger of a remix from Chi-Town footwork hero @RP_Boo. Across ‘2 Da Core’ Basic Rhythm supplies beats that are anything but basic as he weaves choice threads between hardcore, footwork and more. And on RP Boo’s ‘2 Da Core’ remix, the project’s title track is chopped into smithereens and rebuilt in the producer’s signature sonic palette. Which, if you didn’t know, means it's a hit in the making. ‘2 Da Core’ lands on September 13 via Planet Mu. Pre-order the EP below.

Jukebox Management launches its highly anticipated JBX imprint with the 'Come On The Stars' EP from AudioHell that showcases his unique approach to production and a lush sonic palette. Within the four tracker, that is due to be included on his new album, comes a driving remix by PEZNT which has its focus aimed squarely at the dancefloor.
