QDUP feat. MUSTAFA AKBAR: Funk & Dance (2015)

Funk  Dance  QDupFunk & Dance is the latest single from QDup as he makes a song and dance (literally) out of his return to the Fort Knox Recordings label. How does he do this?

ASTRONAUT JONES: Game Theory (2014)

Game Theory Astronaut JonesAstronaut Jones has decided that what the world needs is more in the way of ‘jazz fusion’-flavoured breaks and moreover that he’s the man to provide it. Gambling thus wildly with the public’s tastes, Jones initiates Game Theory with a ‘plugging into the amp’ sound and some groovy blaxploitation bass which promises a wondrous percussive drop. And said drop is indeed delivered but only after
