Chase & Status have been rulers of the commercial D’n'B and Dubstep world for sometime now, breaking into the mainstream with tracks like “End Credits” with Plan B and more recently, the storming “Blind Faith” – Not to mention producing for Bajan superstar Rihanna!
Recently, they opened up the doors for lesser known producers and ran a competition to find a remix for their up-and-coming release “Time” featuring Delilah.
..and fuck me, who should win but our very own Scouse production wizard, Kev Willow.
“As soon as we heard Kev Willow’s remix we knew we’d found the winner. We loved the music used in the intro, and the garage / Todd Edwards vibe with the cut up vocals was an original concept for dubstep. It was a different and exciting sounding remix and he really put his own stamp on it.”
Listen to his blistering mix here:

After a spending 2010 racking up remixes for the likes of Natisse and Kof, Kev Willow aka The Prototype has put together the Plan of Action EP, a blistering, eclectic slice of Dubstep. Ranging from hard and aggressive dancefloor fillers like “Bass Be Louder”, to the more commercial offering “Got Me Feelin” and the floaty ambience “4am”, Plan of Action brings together sounds from across the ever expanding spectrum that is Dubstep.
Available on the Viral Beat Recordings label, run by The Prototype and Test Pilot Music.

Following a succession of strong releases and numerous accolades, Love & Cake Digital return to the scene with their fourth EP release. This time with “Lemon&Honey”, a soulful, intelligent slice of Tech House-meets-Electro from the Australian newcomer Marc Aleksei. Already winning praise is his native Oz, Aleksei (real name Cheyenne Lawson) is a standout talent, who despite his young age is proving that he’s a force to be reckoned with.
Stylistically, this young upstart is fusing lush Minimal Tech, with deliciously squelchy Electro elements, as well as giving a nod to Hip Hop and Dubstep along the way. Kicking off the display of diversity is the title track “Lemon&Honey” which manages to be upfront, ravey and intellectual all at once. With melodic subtleties that have drawn comparisons to Wesley Matsell’s ‘’Bernwerk’’, the opening track is a prime example of just how promising this new talent is. The subsequent tracks range from the hard-hitting, sub-bass fueled “Pristine”, the technical and at times, mechanical intricacies of ‘Revere’ to the deep, contemplative, atmospheric closer “Shine”. With words of encouragement and appreciation coming from Australia’s top DJ, Luke Porter and club plays from various DJs hitting up America’s east coast, Marc Aleksei is taking his first steps to being an internationally recognised talent.
Here is a sneaky peak at two new tracks we’re in the process of scheduling for Love&Cake Digital.. The first, Soul Lemon by Tom Excell is a grimey, dubstep-infused slice of Electro-Breaks and the second, coming all the way from Queensland, Australia is Marc Aleksei’s exceptional slice of Tech-House and Minimal, the Lemon&Honey EP.
Mmmm.. Fruity. What do you guys think?
