Basement Jaxx [ft. 607 & Bobby] - "Raindrops (Joker & Ginz Remix) (607 Flip)"

607

Ah, the glory days...early 2009. Back then, I was posting a new 607 flip every few weeks. But after a few months of keeping our supply steady and thoroughly whetting our appetites, Lord Six split to Russia for a minute, and the flip flood came to a sad, unwelcome halt. Luckily 607 has been recording with his brother Bobby (aka Mr. Morbid) throughout this interim. He's got a new 17-track album out titled Ear Fear, and you can cop it here.

He actually sent me this flip of Joker & Ginz's remix of "Raindrops" two months ago, so my bad for just now getting around to sharing it. It's on the album:

In other Lord Six news, he came in second place in Diplo's Makin' Christmas contest over on Mad Decent. He got beat out by Milonakis, which—don't get me wrong—I loves some Schmiloschmakis, but damn. Our boy Six took that. Let's be rill.

Joker - "Psychedelic Runway"

Joker

Aside from mainstays like Dizzee, Sov and Tinchy (who have unanimously opted for a much poppier sound recently), vocal-based grime seems to be falling off the rader. And while grime MCs continue to mutate into dance-pop phenomena, producers like Rustie, Plastician and Joker are inheriting the thrown as the genre's leading new faces.

They seem to be closing the already-narrow gap between grime and dubstep. (Then again, my ears aren't especially seasoned in either genre, so I'm sure there's room for disagreement there—feel free to flame accordingly in the comments section below.)

"Psychedelic Runway" is the B-side from Joker's latest single:
