STRICTLY RHYTHM + KAYLA + BEN WESTBEECH

It’s a bit weird when a few unrelated events simultaneously come together. For example, we received three items – from different sources mind you – all related to the iconic house label, STRICTLY RHYTHM.

First is this clubby mashup of an older Strictly cut with up-and-comer KAYLA (pictured above). Apparently this is a leak which may explain why there’s no download.

Coming from Strictly themselves, we get a peep at BEN WESTBEECH‘s second single in anticipation of his long player coming out on September 12. “Something for the Weekend” is a house-inspired, disco-tinged number. Gerry Read provides the jazzed-out broken beats while Roska (below) and Ben’s alter ego Breach drop variations on dub step and some retro stabs respectively.

Catch the pre-order here.

Finally, and perhaps for a few bragging rights, we’ve been profiled in Strictly’s Strictly Scene. View the profile here.

Massive shouts go to all our writers, BONAVENTURE, CITY LIMITS, PEZNAKOV, and our fresh recruit CYCLIST. Also, big ups to MEME and the other half of THE SHAKE, DJ LOTEK.
