Slugabed returns to Ninja Tune for his latest release ‘DO U C ME THO / U RIGHT‘. With this two-track EP he stays true to his experimental style. Two heavy beats taking on the hip hop genre. According to Ninja Tune, Slugabed has been busy working for his own new label Activa Benz and spend a lot of time in the studio. This is the outcome. Let’s wait and see if he got more goods for us to come.
Slugabed likes to say thanks for all the support over the last years. He does that with the release of a free EP. This is his first release on his own Activia Benz label. XLR8R had the privilege of premiering the track ‘True Born’, two days ago. Most likely our favorite track on the record. Expect to hear bass heavy tracks with weird samples and rolling snares.

The latest addition to the Activia Benz imprint is Toby Gale. The cool ass label is a great home for the 8-bit, synth heavy productions of Toby Gale. The label is found by weirdacool producer Slugabed, who has a clear vision with the imprint. They release music they like and have fun doing it. ‘The Good Of The Night‘ Ep promises to be a mash-up of hip-hop, house and glitchy beats. With ‘Air Bones’ you find yourself being comforted by smooth rhythms and peaceful melodies. Expect the release to drop November 10.
The beer drinking Frenz from Slugabed’s label Activia Benz are all together now on one awesome compilation record. There’s a treat for everybody. From grime to future r&b to techno. This record will keep you busy for a while. It’s pretty cool they named it volume 1. That sounds like a promise of more compilations to come, right? Activa Benz also got some things coming up in the future, so stay tuned.
Donkey Pitch started out as a midweek party in a small club below a pub. It now has grown out to be a record label with some very exciting releases. Slugabed, Ghost Mutt, 813 and Keyboard Kid are some of the artists on their roster. Today a new EP dropped by The Range. This is the follow-up to his 2012 Donkey Pitch release ‘Disk‘. The first track is our favorite. Over a fast flipped vocal sample he lays down some mellow melodies.
Last January we got excited for Soosh‘s debut album ‘Colour Is Breathe‘. Next Monday we can expect a remix album to drop.
