Hot on the heels of STEAK 001, praised by everyone from Thom Yorke to Sinden comes another 12” of karnival heat from Hanuman and Atki2’s Steak House imprint.
STEAK 002 sees label bosses Monkey Steak (Hanuman and Atki2) take the helm to deliver a release that fuses Soca, Funky and Bashment sounds with global influences and trademark Monkey Steak edits. The result is a record that’ll blow the roof off any dance!
A1: Hyped Up feat MC Zulu is an instant party classic. Featuring the
formidable vocal talents of the original badman MC Zulu. This tune is pure Soca Fire.

A2: Bombeiros! is the riddim of Hyped Up and a huge tune in its own right.
Chromatic Bass and galloping Soca Beats raise the temperature on this tropical banger. One for the Airhorns Crew!

B1: Tigris Riddim. As featured on Toddla T.’s Fabriclive:47 mix. Fragments of Iraqi folk music collide with bubbling bass and tuff bashment beats. Global Bass at its finest.

B2: Haarlem Drift is a psychedelic funky anthem. Dreamy synths and punishing sub bass weave themselves around a broken tribal rhythm. Featured in Chrissy Murderbot’s massive Mad Decent Mixtape.

This mix has been on repeat for me since I first received it and its only fair that I share it because its huge! Warrior One are two producers from West London making some of the freshest and most exciting tunes I've heard in a while. Proper Karnival House heat! According the their bio:
"Warrior One is a master yoga pose dedicated to Virabhadra, the name of a fierce warrior incarnation of Shiva, who had a thousand heads, a thousand eyes, and a thousand feet, and wields a thousand clubs whilst wearing a tiger's skin. Deadly."
Their new EP (Including a fierce voicing by the one and only Lady Chann) is dropping Feb 15th on their own king pigeon label and you can grab the mix below.

Those looking to escape the hell of pre-Christmas preparation would be well advised to head down to Brixton on Sunday 13th December for the latest installment of Cosmonaut. Audio Sushi's resident spaceman Disastronaut will be playing alongside The Mighty Love, Orac, Gagarin and others. There'll be homecooked food and film screenings and you can bring your own drink. A good opportunity to keep out the winter cold with a cloak made of stardust.
