So while were all back in the UK freezing our nuts off, Mouldy Soul's enjoying himself in the Aussie summer with the Adapted Records crew, eating shrimp off the barbie (we know it's true, it was in an Opiuo track), downing some kind of beer that definitely isn't F*sters and trying his hardest not to get a tan. Bastard. Anyway, here are the tour dates....

18th Jan - Melbourne, @Brown Alley with Mustard Tiger, Mister Rogers & Goosebumpz
1st Feb - Sydney, @UFO Club with Mr Rogers, Mustard Tiger and Staunch
9th Feb - Outdoor day party in Perth

29th - London, Distant Tremor presents a night of BASS! @ Union w/ AMB, Quanta, ISO

...and here's a video we recorded with Rich at Glade Festival 2012, talking about why he loves Australian glitch hop so much. We hope it makes him homesick enough to come back.

Culprate gets Toast Face-d

Old skool flavours given the 2013 refix on this chilled Culprate vs. Cypress Hill mash up by Toast Face from Canada. Lush.

Cerebral Theory gets some practice in

It's a double drop from Cerebral Theory this month: on 28th January The Pooty Club Records release the track Bracing Osiliks, which reveals a fuller bass sound than we've hear from him before, whilst retaining all the brain twinkling harmonics that he's so fond of (we especially love the FarfetchD remix).

This new fullness can also be heard across all three tracks of the Learning Curve EP, released on 11 January through his own Inception Records. It stems from a warm elasticy bass buzz underlying the gorgeous high end melodies, like the glitched out vibrations of an uber-fat upright string. Lush.

It's all about four-step garage...according to Spenghead

Yes it's true, glitch hop doesn't have to be 90-110bpm! It can be any tempo you like! Spenghead leads the way into 2013 with some distinctly neurofunk inflected future garage on Adpated Records. He's like so 2011. Oh and there's a 100bpm Cubism remix for those who can't handle the departure and a dirty Vortek version to confuse all the bro steppas.
