Lion Babe – Jump Hi (Todd Edwards Dub)

We’re here for the Todd Edwards on this one:

Much as we’re sure Lion Babe and Childish Gambino are good (and we really did enjoy this at the time), it’s the UKG maestro’s rework that makes this a top listen. Rolling tech house to drive you towards hometime.

Burial & Four Tet – Unreleased

We’ve been going a little Four Tet mad on these pages recently but, if you’ve given his new LP a spin, you’ll forgive us we’re sure.

As part of his madman eight hour Rinse FM follow-up show, he dropped an unreleased cut from his collaborative period with Burial:

It’s as atmospheric as you’d think, with a strong seam of UKG running through it. See what follows it (for the remaining seven hours and 56 minutes…) here.

Sticky – Pedal Riddim

Beat-making grandee Sticky (aka Bill Tune, Forbsey, Fyrus, Mista Forbes, Richard Forbes – the man loves an alias) has migrated to a new label, Big Dada, and his first single for them has hit the web. More of a Julio B house stomper than you’d expect from a man with such UKG credentials, it fits in seamlessly with the current crop of feet-tapping, riff-based four-to-the-floor. Needless to say, it’s quality.

It’s also got a great, literal vid. Anything with odds-on BBC Sports Personality of the Year favourite Bradley Wiggins is alright with us:

Just before you go, check out Forbsey on more familiar territory with his classic, ‘Triplets’:

As FACT put it recently, “Richard ‘Sticky’ Forbes has forgotten more dancefloor classics than most artists have released.” Quite.
