Glen Brady (also known as DJ Wool) has spent the last couple of years in California as an audio engineer in the classical music world, he has recently toured as a member of D.A.R.K. with band members Dolores O’Riordan (The Cranberries) and Andy Rourke (The Smiths). He also mixed their debut album “Science Agrees” and last year he toured in support of The Cranberries as a member of D.A.R.K. He used to live in Berlin where he churned out hard-hitting tracks, before that he was in NYC duo The Glass and up to this date he’s amassed a massive resume with remixing and production credits for a vast array of artists including Spoek Mathambo, Todd Terry, Far East Movement, REM, Jagz Kooner, Howie B, Tittsworth and many more.

He has now relocated to Ireland where he recently performed an all hardware set on synths, samplers, drum machines and fx at the Body & Soul Festival. Fortunately, someone pressed the record button and we all are now able to hear this beauty of a set, listen and enjoy breaks, acid bleeps, housed up jams and banging left-field techno in a set done by a maestro. Also, be on the lookout for new releases from DJ Wool on My Techno Weighs a Ton and Soleid.

Boy Better Know founders and brothers Skepta & JME with a spectacular sounding live set that’s a celebration of grime and garage, taken from when they played at The Ritz in Manchester (recorded by Red Bull Music Academy radio).

“In 2006 and 2011, cult releases Tropical 1 and 2 came out respectively on the Boy Better Know label. At that time, as grime and dubstep dominated UK underground culture, UK garage was no longer represented in the clubs. In response, tracks from the likes of Todd Edwards, Wookie, Preditah and Royal T mixed UKG with grime production, serving as a nod to grime’s submerged roots. Tropical captured this sound. Now, as grime’s resurgence gathers momentum, Tropical has moved forward from an audio format into a 3D club experience, injecting some bounce back into the clubland context and refreshing the dancefloor with the best of old and new.”

Feeling that slump being stuck in an office while the sun is shining and everybody’s seems to be relaxing outside? Bumping this set from Chicago legend DJ Deeon will transport you to a sweaty, packed club. The recording is taken from his recent appearance at the Red Bull Music Academy x Lit City Trax party during the Red Bull Music Festival in New York.
