Slop Rock Teams Up With US MC Whiskey Pete For “Super Dope” Single Out April 23rd


The new single from Slop Rock & Whiskey Pete entitled “Super Dope” will be released on April 23rd on Radikal Records. Visit http://radikal.com for more information.

Coming soon to Radikal Records is “Super Dope,” an explosive collaboration between up and coming Aussie DJ/production duo, Slop Rock, and US MC Whiskey Pete. The “Super Dope” single package includes several remixes and edits and is scheduled for release on iTunes and Beatport on April 23rd. The single can also be previewed or purchased directly from the Radikal website, starting today.

Slop Rock has become serious contenders in the Australian club scene over the past 12 months. Off the back of their last two club hits “Revolution” and “Hero” comes the equally epically titled “Super Dope.” This time they team up with US MC, Whiskey Pete, a voice many would recognize from his work with TJR, Sue Cho, DJ Bam Bam and Figure. The original mix has a cheeky and filthy synth hook over booming bass kicks. Gigi Barocco (fresh off his work with the Bloody Beetroots) has produced the kind of epic electro slammer that would make Feed Me want to hang up his hat and call it a day. Apocolyto and Heath Renata have each issued mandatory dance orders with their unique main room interpretations. Finally, Wellsaid and Rubberteeth have the jacking alternative for house music purists.

Queen Of Bass Ayah Marar Signs with Radikal Records to Release Debut Album “The Real” in US and Canada


Introducing Ayah Marar, the “Queen Of Bass.” Ayah Marar’s debut acclaimed album “The Real” will be released on Radikal Records this summer.

Radikal Records is proud to announce the signing of one of the hardest working artists in the dance music genre, Ayah Marar. Well known amongst the electronic music community in the UK, Ayah’s dedication to her music has earned her the rightful title of “The Queen Of Bass.” Her debut album, “The Real” has been attracting wide spread attention and critical acclaim with a recent Vibe Magazine interview, Music Week featuring her song “Alive” as Track Of The Week, and Ayah winning Best Female Artist in the 2013 Drum And Bass Awards. “The Real” will be released by Radikal Records in North America in early summer this year.

Dance music is a broad church, but within each parish there’s usually a set of rules. A doesn’t always go with B, and X shouldn’t really mix with Y, but sometimes those rules are meant to be broken or manipulated into odd new shapes. Ayah Marar’s kaleidoscopic debut album, “The Real,” is a case in point: thirteen songs that take inspiration from the underground dance scene, cherry-picking the very best elements of drum and bass, techno and house and bolting them onto well-crafted pop hooks that look set to shatter dance floors. “It’s an homage to dance music in whatever form, whether it’s garage or two step or house or drum and bass,” she explains.

With seemingly every other new pop star trying to marry a gargantuan dance beat to a pretty melody, it’s a competitive world. The difference here is that Ayah Marar isn’t faking it. She lives the life of an underground dance fiend, of a DJ and MC, of a strong woman in a male-dominated industry. Her two worlds, the underground and the mainstream, have been brought together organically, co-existing in a way that sounds fresh rather than forced. “I’m trying something that I don’t think has been done in the way we’re trying to do it,” Marar states. “It’s what I love to do; it’s trying to find that balance.”
