Antipop Consortium - Volcano

Antipop Consortium - Volcano (Download) Big Dada BDDNL153, 2009-09-21 The first full single from APC's eagerly awaited comeback album, Fluorescent Black, Volcano is the sound of a group not only at their urgent, exploratory best, but also one which knows their funk.

Two Fingers - Instrumentals

Two Fingers - Instrumentals (CD/Download) Big Dada BDCD155/BDDNL155, 2009-09-07 Bearing in mind the producers involved, it was inevitable that Two Fingers would produce an instrumental version of their critically-acclaimed eponymous debut.

Juice Aleem - First Lesson

Juice Aleem - First Lesson (Download) Big Dada BDDNL146, 2009-08-10 Juice Aleem touches down with the first single from his forthcoming late-arriving debut album Jerusalaam Come.

Speech Debelle - Better Days

Speech Debelle - Better Days (Download) Big Dada BDDNL149, 2009-08-03 Speech Debelle returns with one of the standout cuts from her hugely acclaimed debut album, Speech Therapy.
