  5. Nueva Pompeya (Xavier León Remix)

  6. If (Sega Bodega Remix)

Toboggan’s Nueva Pompeya EP will drop with Activia Benz December 15th, featuring remixes from some of our extended gang. The EP is warm and energetic but with a slightly more sinister edge than a lot of his previous work. It is tribal and ancient but also fresh and exhilarating. Something very “ayahuasca” about it all if you ask me.

All three original tracks have a remix, from Silkersoft, Xavier León and Sega Bodega respectively. It’s as if they all really knew what they were doing, because the full EP turned out cohesive and GREAT! Clever bunch!

  6. 3 Up (Maxo Cuttermix)

Toby Gale is a young and cool producer coming straight outta London town. I was friends with him in primary school and we used to play Music2000 on Playstation together. His The Good Of The Night EP has a dreamy feel. It’s a bit like when you ride the horse around at night time on Ocarina of Time and there’s no one around and you feel very blissful. But it’s more groovy than the Zelda music I just mean the vibe, ya know. It’s like if there was a Golden Saucer bit from FFVII on a Zelda game. Imagine Link on a Chocobo. I hate writing press releases.

Very cool producer man and PC Music affiliate, Maxo jumps on board for a slick jazzy take on “3 Up”. I have trouble nodding my head to it because it’s very clever, rhythmically.

  5. Keep One Thing (Lil Mystic Remix)

Miami Mais is from the sunny southern end of Italy, and writes music that is sunny, fun and also a bit ridiculous. A Popcorn Diet is an EP bursting with flavour. It’s sweet and salty all at once. Actually it’s as though somebody poured some skittles into the popcorn, or something crazy like that.

He claims his cooking is better than his music, and I’m salivating at the thought because his music is bonkers and also I am hungry cos I didn’t have lunch.

He recently released a track on Ryan Hemsworth’s Secret Songs thingy that he does, which means he must be cool.

We got Lil Mystic on board for the remix of “Keep One Thing”, and he twisted it up into a crazy lil jersey-esque riddim that will bash down the dance at any given opportunity.

Following on from his incredible contribution to the first Activia Frenz compilation, and still sweaty from touring with Russian super-band Mumiy Troll for weeks on end, DZA comes with a solid EP of truly invigorating futuristic cool shit! For this release, Activia Benz have teamed up with DZA’s very own label How2Make and both are hugely excited to be a part of this occasion.

The Big Bang EP is a mish mash of atmospheric video game music and hard hitting club stuff. The type of music that gets the dance floor sticky with tears and beers in equal measure. Also included on the EP is a remix from Activia Benz affiliate and fellow Moscow badass 813, who flips Fluffernutter into his own hyper-cool wikid cool party music.

Activia Frenz Vol. 1 is the first in a series of compilations from the yung record label / beer drinking collective Activia Benz (and their Frenz). It brings together some of the original Activia dons from previous releases such as Eloq, Taste Tester, Slugabed and Deech and stirs in some fresh meat in the form of Silkersoft, DZA, DJ Warlord and more! It’s a real journey. From the bangers to the clangers it has it all. It’s got rap style club things and one-take analogue techno. It’s got Rewrote doing a grime! It’s got 4bidden with some deep space R’n’B or something. It’s really nice and we like it and it’s a lil signal of some things soon to come from Activia Benz so stayed tuned, gang!

  4. Heaven

  5. Heaven (A. G. Cook Remix)

DJ DJ Booth claims his influences to consist of "Todd Edwards and The Neptunes. That's it." We don't believe him. Partly because we know him and know that he definitely likes a lot of different music. He's just trying to be quirky.

However, his claims seem quite convincing when listening to his debut EP "Todd Edwards Falling Down The Stairs". The EP starts off in the realms of straight up bangin' old school house / garage with "Ur Wastin My Time". Chopped vocals and a stinky bassline make for a real club stonker. From there on in the EP gradually gets less predictable, with "Sknbyfmymnrrwdy" and "Ch Ch Blaow" both taking you on weird journeys across the dancefloor, interspersed with threats from Big Pun and gunshots respectively. "Heaven" rounds things off with a softer edge and a helluva grooove.

London based A. G. Cook has provided a remix for "Heaven" that is genuinely quite bizarre, speeding up the whole track and adding some fairly ridiculous female vocals ("125BPM, plus twenty percent, heaven at Gmail, sent"). At first it's like WTF but it becomes very infectious very quickly and all of a sudden it's like OMG.

These transatlantic goof balls have put together a fantastic record of thick juicy jams, ready for the club and/or a picnic with your friends.

On remix duties, south London newcomer DJ DJ Booth tackles "Higher" turning it into a weird and infectious house/rap party. Norway's Slick Shoota twists up "U Don't Know Me" into a mellow and super vibey juke moment.

Well whaddaya know? Head-boss-chief of Activia Benz and general great guy Slugabed is dropping a cheeky little springtime EP, "This is a Warning"!

Party-time jams with reggae / jungle influences and a whole heap of steel drums, airhorns, 808s and palm trees. Good vibes.

Danish trap fool ELOQ jumps on board also with a bonkers version of the title track to make everybody's battys wine etc.

For Activia Benz's's third release, we have teamed up with the Danish beat wizard and all round very cool guy, Eloq!

Eloq's music is a lot of fun, but also serious. It makes you want to shake all your limbs in a very silly way, while also maintaining a mean look on your face. It has all the 808s and a few horns as well as lots of very fun synth work. It is trap music, we suppose. We like it very much.

Packed with five original tracks and also a remix from our very own Slugabed, this record is all round very good party music, especially if you like this sort of music.

Activia Benz are back in full swing for 2013 with their next release: Recolor EP from 813.

813 is 25 year old Russian badass, Alexander Goryachev.

He is a firefighter, which is badass.

His music is a dense collision of crazy rap beats, sort of, and some kind of fantastic rave thing, maybe. His music is very badass, much like the fact he is a firefighter. It is also very beautiful, like when he carries a small cat to safety from a burning Russian building.

Recolor is a slice of really fantastic dancey bassy music for partying and hanging out to with your m8s.

  5. Urnite (Slugabed Remix)

Deech comes from Minsk in Belarus and makes music that is at once sensual and engaging but with a rough edge, like Robert de Niro. Here, on the "Urnite" EP, he has created four infectious tracks that work just as well on the dancefloor as they do on the bedroom floor. Slugabed has remixed the title track, giving it a slightly brisker feel and using some wooden percussive noises and a slap bass thing that sounds cool.

The EP sits somewhere between slo-jamz and dance-trax and is all round fun music for listening to.
