Danny Howard Presents Fire Beats Vol. 2 [Nothing Else Matters]

BBC Radio 1 DJ Danny Howard presents the second of his curated Fire Beats EPs on his new label, . The EP features 4 tracks selected by Danny, from a selection of up and coming and more established artists.

The first track comes courtesy of influential British duo Rhythm Masters, with ‘Dynamite’. The duo have been active as a highly respected DJ and production duo since the early 90s, and this new track bears all the hallmarks of their characteristic style; a jacking beat, a grooving bassline and a quirky melody.

The release of their track on Nothing Else Matters is a great moment for the label; the duo have previously released on the likes of Tommy Boy, Narcotic, Junior, Edible and their own Dis-Functional Records, and have remixed for Todd Terry, Michael Jackson, David Morales and .

The second comes from up and coming duo, Tuff London. The pair have previously had their tracks supported by , Mark Knight and Riva Starr as well as by Danny himself. ‘Get Down’ is a laid-back groover with a hefty lower end and an effective chords-led breakdown.

MANT follow with ‘Bodywerk’, a thumping track with an instantly recognisable high pitched vocal sample. The Londoners have been rapidly gaining attention from all the right people of late, having been affiliated with Chase & Status’s label MTA and Kerri Chandler’s Madtech.

Rounding off the EP is Birmingham based producer and DJ . The percussion-filled ‘Rubadub’ is a big track built for the kind of clubs he frequents as a DJ; fabric, The Rainbow and Motion Bristol amongst others.

Tying together the best in UK talent, the second edition of the Fire Beats EP is a great representation of Danny’s desire to showcase the talented artists he discovers every day.
