Our Electro and Dubstep label “Love & Cake Digital” will be unleashing a belter from the mighty Staffy & Maverick on Monday February 7th, so be sure to get yourself a copy of Chucked Love.
Doing the rounds on the London scene, thanks to Urban Nerd’s resident Rattus Rattus, you may well have heard this track dominating your local dancefloor already, but if not, check it out now:
Racking up over 150k views on youtube already, the original mix is an internet sensation. Add to this a scorching remix from The Prototype, which recently gained airplay on MistaJam’s 1Xtra show and you’ve got one hell of a single! GO GET!
Check out Kev (aka The Prototype)’s mad mash-up of House and Dubstep on the MistaJam show.
Cheers to our pal Mat Roff, the talent illustrator and designer behind The Prototype’s artwork.
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.
Two of our Test Pilot artists Simon Haycock aka BitBasic and Julian Corrie aka Miaoux Miaoux have featured on Music Week covermount CDs in the last two months. Bizarrely, each appearance was entirely independent of the other.. But all the same, bravo guys!
