For the last eight years, Birmingham label Audio Overload have brought you some of the best in underground UK flava and continue on with their mission in fine form on VIP Part 1. This inaugural edition comes from scene stalwart Midst and features, as the name suggests, some digital exclusives made for a proper rinse out. Highlights come in the form of collaborations such as the wonky tech stepper "Too Many Lives" with Padman, the seething neurofunk of "Poltergeist" in collaboration with Jedi, and the jump-up vibe of "Little Boy" featuring Emzylaro.
