Review: K7's Tape series has already seen the indie royalty likes of Foals, The Rapture and The Big Pink compile mixtapes of mix their favourite tunes. That considered they've still outdone themselves by securing Bloc Party's frontman Kele Okereke for this time round. Unsurprisingly it's an impressively diverse mix featuring delicious drone rock "I Love You (La La La)", the party-grime of Wiley's "Numbers In Action (Sticky remix)", and Kele's own steamy bass remix of his very own band. Impressive!
Review: The big, bad Wookie is back on ManChu with some o' dat ol' time garage we dig so much! The prosperous producer gets better with each new Ep pumped out from this tidy imprint, and we love the fact that it's just all about the music here - all killer, and absolutely no filler! This magnetic remastering of "Gallium" is a pleasure to every part of your dancing body; there is just something so pleasing about its straight, effective house groove that only hints at something more garage-centric. That is, 4/4 beats dominate the equation, along with a fine sprinkling of vintage piano keys, but there is plenty of UK sensibility at its core, making this an absolute beauty to get that floor jam-packed!

Review: There will certainly be a lot of hype surround Wookie's recruitment of mockney popette Eliza Doolittle for his latest banger. No expense has been spared either as they've commissioned a whopping six mixes to accompany the release. The original is a classy rolling number, with jazzy pianos and everything. Elsewhere we get killer carnival vibes ("Wookie Dub"), bonkers hyperactive DnB ("Danny Byrd mix"), euphoric tranceyness ("Wideboys Club mix") and slick, restrained house ("Blue Slims remix"). It's a winner!
