Sorry for the lack of updates, lots going on behind the scenes. I've missed the last few radio shows due to illness and then equipment problems but all should be back to normal for Mondays show. Also the Louis Den Beat Cypher was an incredible night with all the producers smashing it, Dready judging the beat battle and some ill PA's. Heres the first bit of footage courtesy of AB0181, lots more to come inc some record reviews, some great gig news and lots more. Off ot play at Shambala this weekend with Funkbox
