Former UK beatbox champ, comedian and tech-obsessed producer Beardyman released his second album, Distractions, last year. Now following on from its success, he releases another track culled from said LP, "Mountain Side", boosted by some new mixes. MAWT chills things out considerably; delivering epic beats and loops, woven into an M83-style hymn, Auralais returns to the days of broken beat, whilst Cosmodelica wraps things up nicely with some headnodding disco-funk.
Norman Cook still manages to remain relevant through three decades of electronic music. From his beginnings in indie act The Housemartins and chart toppers Beats International through to massive house 12's as Pizzaman and Mighty Dub Katz, to name but a few. His Fatboy Slim moniker has no doubt been his most successful venture, but unlike the funked up and party starting breaks of old, Cook now goes for a pumping electro house vibe on new single "Boom F**king Boom", a bass driven groove with a cheeky vocal refrain that takes its cues from current scene heroes such as Dirtybird or This Ain't Bristol.
