Roots Manuva - Do Nah Bodda Mi


Roots Manuva - Do Nah Bodda Mi (12"/Download) Big Dada BD145/BDDNL145, 2009-06-29 Mr Manuva returns with one of the standout tunes from last year's superb Slime & Reason.

Xrabit + DMG$ - Love Of My Night


Xrabit + DMG$ - Love Of My Night (Digital) Big Dada BDDNL144, 2009-05-18 The Texas-Dalston axis return with the third single from their marvellous debut album and it's a cracker.

Thunderheist - Nothing To Step To


Thunderheist - Nothing To Step To (12"/Download) Big Dada BD129, 2009-05-15 Grahm and Isis began Thunderheist as a project to throw a wrench into static hip hop conventions and explore their love for the dancefloor. They are far more than an electrorap act grounded in rap, bass, and electro, but are also entrenched in disco, funk and R&B, crafting their own, brand new definition of...

Two Fingers feat. Sway


Two Fingers feat. Sway (CD/2xLP/Digital) Big Dada, 2009-03-30Imagine if Timbaland were kidnapped and held hostage in a council flat in Tottenham. Imagine then, that elite robot agents aligned to the New World Order were sent into rescue him with laser cannons little knowing that the kidnappers were in fact an underground cell of benefit-cheat Jedi. Imagine hip hop recapturing the sheer brutality...
