Bigby - The Scene EP
Brand new charity single from the Pandemonium Drummers and Friends - buy it now to support the Teenage Cancer Trust!
'Champion' is produced by Felix Buxton of Basement Jaxx and, as well as the drummers themselves, showcases vocalists Brendan Reilly (featured by Basement Jaxx and Disclosure), Vula Malinga (Basement Jaxx), Melissa Cavanagh (as seen on Team Boy George on The Voice) and Gina Maloney. Other friends include Gospel Essence, London House Cats Choir and children from Young Hackney. The Song is Written by Pandemonium Drummer Denis Fernando.
Episode 01 is a LIMITED, HEAVY WEIGHT, VINYL ONLY 12" release and was created live, purely on machines. Creating Experimental and other-worldly tones, it is unclear whether the creator is 'Lord Battagon’ himself or his droid helpers, ‘Gom, Pez, Edrix and Wezlee’.
All three tracks hail from the quirky "Planet Battagon" world, with "Like You, Like Me" the most likely contender for Club play by the more adventurous DJs. Touching on early Techno and Space-Bass-Jazz, Episode 01 is certain to take you on a journey through previously unchartered realms!

A blissful, sun-soaked, piano led Ibiza homage from guitar supremo Andrea Terrano (as heard on Basement Jaxx’s "Mermaid of Salinas" and "Mermaid of Bahia"). Following a great reaction when played in demo form at Ibiza’s Cafe Mambo this August, the vocal version features Samantha Moyo, star and founder of the Morning Gloryville morning raves which, in just two years, have spread to 26 countries.
Coming with the very much Ibiza club Blisstrumental mix, Club mix, the chilled original and the very chilled and atmospheric cinematic accompanying bonus track "Cinemotion".

Earlier this year Basement Jaxx launched a remix competition in conjunction with premier dance music retailer, Beatport, based around their song “Unicorn”, a former Rinse FM Record of The Week, firm live favourite and a stand out-track from last summer’s “Junto” album.
Having listened to over 600 entries, they chose a winner, a remix by German producer “.Ocin” who said about the mix “The original’s vocals really touched me with their loveliness. So my intention was to underscore them with a tune that accentuated their nymph-like playfulness.”
However, given the standard of the entries and true the Jaxx’s inclusive vibe, they decided to make 10 of the best entries - including mixes from Italy, Spain, Russia, the UK and West Java, Indonesia - available as a stand alone release.
So, here is “Unicorn”, remixed by the people, for the people and available now on Beatport
