This is some serious hot summer day business! Big up max and the lighta crew. Visit Max’s Myspace page for more music.

The new ‘Soca Sound System’ album by Ghislain Poirier is out April 27th and it’s the first in a year-long array of releases from the Montreal producer on Ninja Tune. The second installment ‘Run The Riddim’ is set for a summer release and will focus on future dancehall while the third release ‘Low Ceiling’ is slated for October and will focus on big dancefloor beats with thick bass showcasing Ghislain’s instrumental side. All releases will lead into a two-disc album entitled ‘Running High’ at the end of the year which will be full of new material, versions and remixes. Ninja Tune is on fire right now and Im stoked to be able to be accompanying their main man Ghislain on a few select up coming Canadian tour dates! In the meantime check out this new bit, get crazy!
MP3: ghislain poirier - get crazy ft. mr slaughter
Its a fairly unlikely pairing but ol snoop is rocking it out Madonna style and keeping with the latest trends! Way to go Snoop!??? I dont know if Id say he reinvented himself on this one, I dont even know if Id say this is really a quality effort of any sort, but kudos for jumping on the dubstep train along with everyone else??? Really, wtf! I love both sides of this collabo normally but Im equally bummed with both Chase & Status and Mr. Snoopy Snoop Dee Oh Double Gee on this outting!

Sabrepulse is a 22 year-old Yorkshire born laptop/chip musician currently based in Aberdeen, Scotland while at university.
Sabrepulse has recently finished touring the UK as part of the Chiptune Alliance with Anamanaguchi and Firebrand Boy and also has toured in Europe this year.
From an early age heavily influenced by the sights and sounds of the 8/16bit videogame era, he came to start sequencing music in late 2001 after deciding to rewrite the soundtracks to seminal Amiga 500 classics, notably ‘Escape From The Planet Of The Robot Monsters’ (however, it does seem he’s the only one who’s ever heard of it).
Fast forward half a decade and a mix of styles have emerged; primarily centering his efforts on a genre recently coined ‘chipbreak’ - sounding somewhat like a fusion between chip/jungle/breakcore/dnb and hardcore - Sabrepulse has also dipped his toe into crumply, glitchy idm and breakbeat. He played live regularly across the uk, records/performs as half of the glitch/sinecore duo ‘GUSH OVEN’ (alongside Smile For The Cameraman, Honey!) and is part of several indie/netlabels in the UK, US and Japan.
Check out some of his tracks. They take a bit of getting used to but they're very catchy. Enjoy!
This track is off his album "Turbo City" which has much more of a true chiptune/8-bit feel to it.
These two tracks are off of the album "Chipbreak Wars" where he started deviating from the classic chiptune sound and began adding elements of drum and bass, breaks and even a bit of electro. "We Are Hi-Speed Tour Mix" has a cool reggae vibe to it and has some drum and bass and break parts. "Phalanx" starts with kind of a weird spacey feel and then near the end begins to sound almost electro-ish.
