Germany’s DJ Swagger returns to Thirty Year Records with a sizzling vinyl-only EP, ‘Bassline Funkyshit’.
Spanning five tracks of UKG-inspired club music, with flourishes of electro and dubstep, it’s another gem from the mysterious producer.
Below you can hear ‘Beta Phase’, a percussive roller that bursts with rhythm nods to UK funky and even a little bit of Drexciya. With warped bass and sprinkings of acid, it’s a stone cold killer.

The Craig David comeback is officially here, and he keeps bringing the fire. The UK garage don (check out our recent quickfire Q&A with him) famously freestyled over ‘Where Are Ü Now’, also dropping into Kurupt FM’s stint on 1Xtra’s #SixtyMinutesLive where grime’s agony uncle Big Narstie was chilling.
“I’m not averse to a bit of shuffling but I wouldn’t say I’m a professional shuffler,” confesses Irish nu-house producer Garry McCartney. “But, when you’re DJing, seeing any form of dancing is good, isn’t it? It’s better than having nobody dancing. So, yeah, I’m all for it. Although I prefer the chicken dance myself.”
