London-based dubstep duo 16bitwere invited to do a ‘Klassroom Mix’ for Kissy Sell Out on BBC Radio 1. This you got to hear.
It’s an unadulterated aural assault of big tunes, big beats and big bass! The pace and tempo is unbelievable. Sit back, relax and turn up the speakers as loud as possible – this one’s not for the faint hearted.
The tracklist is after the jump – you can download it from here.
London Ska/Punk collective The King Blues have just dropped a ferrous no holes bared universal declaration of fury and non-compliance in the face of cuts and austerity.
‘We Are Fucking Angry’ is loud, brash and raw with catchy as hell shout-a-long choruses. Easy to see it as a UK response to The Mighty Stef’s ‘We Want Blood‘, there are striking similarities between the two, not in sound or styles but certainly their messages are in sync.
‘We Are Fucking Angry’ is available for download for FREE via bandcamp and taken from the forthcoming album Punk & Poetry out this April.
The King Blues play Dublin’s Academy on Saturday, March 26th. Tickets €16.
EDIT: The video has been taken down with the following message left, “This video is no longer available due to a copyright claim by YEAH! Films Company”. Not sure if this is permanent of temporary yet, shame.

Hot on the heels of ‘Shell Games‘ comes ‘Haile Selassie’, taking its name from long-time Ethiopian Emperor who is perceived as a messianic figure in Jamaica’s Rastafari movement.
With a myriad of differing material to date it’s hard to call anything ‘typical Oberst’, yet that’s the best way to describe this. Lots of overlapping instrumentation, rhythmic riffage and that renowned lyrical prowess.
