Daily News Round-Up 08/12/14 - Aphex & The Grammy's, Transmission, and a little bit of Loefah...

Grammy Nominations 2015

The 2015 Grammy nominations were released on Friday, and normally that’s about as exciting as David Guetta releasing one of his ‘dance floor-ready’ hits and/or washing the pots, but this year two categories were slightly more appealing than the usual.
Best Dance Recording goes like so:
Basement Jaxx – Never Say Never
Clean Bandit Featuring Jess Glynne – Rather Be
Disclosure Featuring Mary J. Blige – F For You
Duke Dumont Featuring Jax Jones – I Got U
Zhu – Faded

Some may say a bit bland (definitely not us) but a fair share of successes there, Clean Bandit’s ‘Rather Be’ being one of the most popular tunes of the summer and Disclosure obviously making an appearance.
But the most pleasing was the addition of Aphex Twin- Syro to the Best Dance/Electronic Album, which also features:
Deadmau5 – While (1<2)
Little Dragon – Nabuma Rubberband
Röyksopp & Robyn РDo It Again
Mat Zo – Damage Control

It’s good to see a mix of people, and always good to see someone as legendary as Aphex Twin get some appreciation.


Fear not you beautiful North lot, The Warehouse Project are not completely deserting us and are filling in that Warehouse shape gap by releasing a new series of events called Transmission. Taking place at Manchester's Albert Hall (we know it keeps getting better) the events will take place between January to April in the New Year.
The line ups are as good as the venue with David Rodigan, Shy FX, Steve Lawler, Adam Beyer, Scuba, Dusky, Steve Aoki, Hot Since 82, (breathe), Jackmaster, Joy Orb, Ben UFO, High Contrast, Andy C, Heidi, Sonny Fondane, Above & Beyond, Ricardo Villalobos, Amine Edge and many, many more all making appearances.
Thank you so much Warehouse Project from the bottom of our hearts, I don’t know how else we’d have survived January.

Loefah’s lost tracks

Swamp 81’s current mastermind Loefah’s lost tracks may finally be making a re-appearance and are being re-released this Wednesday. The tracks we’re referring too are back from dubstep’s golden era, 2004, called ‘Midnight’ and ‘Woman’. This is exciting stuff for you dubstep lot, as many of you know, so many of these classics go missing never to be heard again. These tracks will be released on a 12” through Berceuse Heroique with its artwork and poster designed by Trilogy Tapes’ Will Bankhead. The sad news though, is it will be limited to 300 copies so you’re going to have to be on Santa’s good list to get one, for everyone else here’s an ever-so-tasty snippet.
