Hey! This is DUMBO BEAT writing for 320KB Magazine.
We are out now with VNCBRG006 vinyl release by DJ P!STA & I as NUDGE in collaboration with the master ENRICO MANTINI: four weapons made for the dancefloor. We will showcase withGRAPEVIBEat VENICEBERG in Verona on Friday 25th January. What’s the best way to celebrate it?
We bring one of the villains from the BOLO City, the “Smile&StayHigh” label boss which just released his own EP on Robsoul Records: DJ CREAM! “And if you don’t know, now you know!”
If you need to lose your body this is the place to be. See you all in this craziness. Peace!
Nail is back on Robsoul Recordings with the third instalment of his A-Block Trax series, featuring another four tracks that confirm the Nottingham producer is right back at the forefront of deep and disco-infused House music. The previous two volumes of A-Block Trax picked up praise from Deep House veterans Charles Webster, Fred Everything, Danny Krivit, Fish Go Deep and Jay Tripwire amongst countless others, and Volume 3 looks set to continue in the same vein, equally delighting those who know Nail’s music from back in the day alongside new fans.
What goes around comes around, so the saying goes, and for Neil “Nail” Tolliday— 2013 was the year for a come-around which is continuing strong into 2014. Whilst this side of the millennium was spent chiefly on Bent, his eight-year partnership with Simon Mills that headlined festivals and was a huge commercial success, prior that he was simply Nail, underground house producer and admired cult DJ—origins that some twenty years later are being exposed anew.
With four EPs now penned for Phil Weeks’ Robsoul Recordings – three volumes of A-Block Trax and a collaboration with Cass Roc as The NG9 Project – and others released for AirDrop and Shabby Doll, Nail is unquestionably, in the succinct words of Mark Farina, “back on the block!”

Credits: This is our 2nd single with Ladybird, upcoming on Robsoul139 in June
We decided also to bring back “U Want My Love” (originally released on the RB131 B Side) on this promo thing cause people always sleep on the B side when the A Side is Hot
Artists: Phil Weeks Title: Live At Palladium Cat.: RB131 Format: 12″ Vinyl Release: 2014
Phil Weeks and Robsoul Recordings kick off their 15th year in house music with a new three track EP from the main man himself. Live At Palladium has been the standout track of Phil’s sets over the last few months, always generating a queue of people asking what it is. You may just recognize the Marvin Gaye sample, which was also previously “borrowed” by Moodymann. It comes backed with the funk-infused You Want My Love and the soaring, chugging groove of Demain A Jamais, and looks set to get another year off to a flying start for one of the finest labels in underground house music.
Artists: Alci Title: Early Beginnings Part 3 Cat.: RB128 Format: 12″ Vinyl Release: 2013
Alcis three part series titled Early Beginnings draws to a close and firmly cements the young Swiss producer as a House music star in the making. Alcis first ever demo was sent to Phil Weeks at the start of 2013, and so impressed was the Robsoul chief that he instantly signed all 10 tracks to the label. Alci, Robsoul and Phil Weeks are an ideal match, as this third installment shows once again, with his funky, looped, sample-based and heads-down jacking house beats aligning perfectly with both Phils and the labels philosophy and output. Its also clear to hear the influence of the classic French House sound & Robsouls interpretation of it in Alcis music. The first two volumes in the Early Beginnings series picked up support from Mosca (Radio 1 play), Darren Emerson, Roberto Rodriguez, Round Table Knights, Matthias Vogt, Dirty Channels, Catz N Dogz, Rolando, Hot Toddy and many more
Robsoul Recordings welcome back the talented Nail for the second installment of his A Block Trax series. Volume 1’s deep Midlands grooves picked up praise from Charles Webster, Fred Everything, Danny Krivit, Fish Go Deep and Jay Tripwire, and Volume 2 follows in exactly the same footsteps, delighting those who know Nail’s music from back in the day.
Mark Farina succinctly sums the resurgence of the Nottingham-based producer: “Nail back on the block!”
