Although White Magick, Deadboy's previous EP for Local Action, was inspired by new age, ambient and meditational music, never forget that Deadboy is first and foremost a club producer. On Black Magick, he recontextualises White Magick's tracks for the club, extending and reinforcing material for the DJs. Vinyl only, one run, no digital.

As far as dream pairings go, they seldom get much more mouthwatering than Yaroze Dream Suite, the meeting of two instrumental grime's most futuristic minds; Miles Mitchell (aka Mr. Mitch) and Yamaneko. Constantly eager to discover new ways of pushing the genre, forward their eponymously-titled EP is an intoxicating mixture of melodic simplicity and percussive inventiveness that seems to act as both a fond farewell to grime's past and a tantalising glimpse of we what we might expect from it next. "In The Moonlight", for example, hitches the soulful vocals of Hannah Mack to theatrical steam organ stabs and just enough claps to keep the track from simply floating away. "Awakening", however, acknowledges grime's past with much gun-cocking and drums that sound like uzi bursts, but where once that would be the cue for a gruff MC to unmuzzle his paranoid angst and ratchet up the tension yet further, a mournful synth melody which gradually increases in volume as the track progresses creates an aural paradox which could be descriptive as the EP as whole. It's a mesmerising record and with new solo albums from Mr. Mitch and Yamaneko just around the corner, I for one am drooling at the prospect of what grime's next Great Leap Forward might have in store.
