Alpha Selection EP

Introducing one of beat1’s remixing generals, NJC aka Carpe Diem. Mr Diem delivers us a mini bundle of badness, bridging the gap between underground and main room flavours.

Using his trademark sound, keeping things fresh and free of genre rules and constraints, he feeds us this darkly created bundle!

Enter Shahin Badar, many will know her vocals on the haunting Smack My Bitch Up by The Prodigy. She sends yet more greatness on this collaboration with Carpe Diem entitled Is It Love. Listen and learn.

Next up we have Brixton bad man The ZooKeeper who featured on the original version, a Deep N Beeper track Fade To White Light, released earlier in 2016 on Ambiel. This is the Carpe Diem way of doing things.

If you draw for gritty tracks, Skrilla Riddim is for you. Some have shuddered in terror at this monstrosity, either way its a downright banger, straight from bangsville and is already turning heads before its release.

Timberlands management being one of the first to comment:

"This is ridiculous homie, pure flames!"

Finally, but deffo not least! We have the remix of a recent Ambiel release, A Girl and Her Gun by Laura Bayston and Altered States. We go on a rolling journey through various moods, taking the original and flipping it. The original track is from a BAFTA nominated Film short of the same name, produced by Bristolian film makers Shunk Films.
