See. Hear. Read.

Welcome to our Broadcast section. Think of this area as a rolling stream of consciousness, a flow of aural and visual information beamed direct from the Cable office.

Having risen through the ranks to prominence as a private radio station DJ, Hatcha has always encouraged the spread of dubstep to the populous. But when he landed his slot on Kiss FM for a regular weekly show, he found a chance to talk to a mainstream market about the music he’d found growing up around him in South London.

With every week a new stir of special guests, collaborations and wicked play listing – Hatcha and Crazy D make a tidy game of putting the underground sounds at the frontline of their broadcasts.

With this week’s show coming live and direct from Kiss HQ, P Money and Distance joined the duo for the ride. With a tasty tracklisting that sported the likes of Jakes, Distance and Coki, the last of which he’ll play alongside at next week’s Dub All Or Nothing.

With Connected now only a matter of weeks away – we’re all getting ready for Defected Records head honcho, and football mad DJ, Simon Dunmore – but in the red room, we’ve got East London boy, and techno head East End Dubs. With a number of high profile dates dotted all across the globe lined up for the next few months – the London producer made a name for himself for releasing his very own brand of deep, dark house. Jesse James of Connected caught up to talk all things East.

There is little info on you online so – how did you first come to electronic music, what were you hearing, why did you like it?

I like keeping it that way - I’ve been DJing for 13 years, and producing for over 8. Things haven’t happened overnight for me. I left two universities for my music, and it’s only now that it’s become my full time job.

And when did you decide to start making it? How did you start?

East End Dubs is a fresh project; I was bored with the music I was seeing around me, and wanted to produce something that sounded unique. It all started about a year ago, and I’ve been in the studio almost every day since. I come from the dance floor - it’s easy for me to get the ideas going, I’m not a musician just producing tools to play in my sets.

What are your aims and influences, what sound are you aiming for, do you have one in your head?

I get inspired by a lot of things. London is an amazing city and whenever I go out I hear something fresh that makes me exited and gives me ideas. DJ’s like Chris Lattner and Enzo Siragusa also inspire me. Me and Chris hae been playing back to back recently, and I can see it’s certainly helped me.

How important is it to be part of the Moon Harbour family? How did that come about?

Moon Harbour family is very big and I’m honoured to be part of it. They got in touch with me via Chris Lattner. I went to their office in Germany and had a meeting with the bosses, I was very impressed how organized and professional they are and we decided to work together that day.

What should people expect from you in London at Connected? What you playing right now?

I’m really looking forward to my date at the Cable Connected party. Both sound system and crowd were fantastic last time I was there. My main aim is to get people moving.

Is it CD of vinyl that really gets you going? Are you interested in the process or more the end results?

I love vinyl but unfortunately I can’t press every single track on them. I use both and I’m quite happy with the result.

What else you got coming up/are you looking forward to?

There is so much going on at the moment. We have an EP finished with Chris Latner, and it’s signed to Arnout’s Dogmatik Records. All three tracks are sounding amazing – I’m really looking forward to everything we’ve got going. The next release will be vinyl only. There’s also a solo EP with Metroline Records in the works.

Commix first rose to fame around 2005, with a fresh and original take on Liquid Drum and Bass, coming away from the tougher, techier sounds of the early 2000's. Already having releases on some of the biggest labels around including Hospital, Exit and Good Looking Records, it wasn't until 2007 when they really burst onto the scene with their now legendary album, "Call To Mind". The duo's talent was instantly recognised by Metalheadz head honcho, Goldie, with his imprint then becoming a second home for the boys.

However, last year the duo, consisting of Guy Brewer and George Levings, announced they would split, with Levings continuing the Commix project on his own. Nearly a year on and the quality that became synonymous with the Commix name has continued, with George releasing a selection of Commix's work from 2003 - 2008 late last year, entitiled "Dusted". His new track "Fallen", available for free download, showcases his maturity as a producer, stripped back in places but with rolling drums and an infectious bassline creeping in and out... classic Commix!

Ahead of his performance this Saturday alongside fellow DnB heavyweights and veterans, Goldie, Fabio and DJ Die, we sat down with George to find out his Top 10 Drum and Bass tracks.

It was Theo Parrish’s turn to take to the Boileroom on the 5th March as the famed Detroit innovator and selector showcased his own selection of minimal classics – testing the best of his mixing talents in the tightest of sonic frequencies.

At 32:53 it’s a decent length listen for that lunch break if you want to space out into a piece of house history.

Enough talking, sit back and let it play in the background, listen via the video above.
