Egyptian Hip Hop on board

DON’T walk, dance like an Egyptian, courtesy of a remix of up-and-coming Mancunian indie act Egyptian Hip Hop.
The group’s debut single Wild Human Child, which features production from Castle Donington band Late Of The Pier‘s Sam Eastgate, has had a going over by friend-of-Sound Advice Radient Dragon.
And you can grab a free download of his “spaced out” reworking of the track here.

That’s Snat

NEW Zealander Connan Mockasin’s debut album Please Turn Me Into The Snat features Late Of The Pier’s Samuel Eastgate.
The Castle Donington-based frontman has lent his drumming to the album, which features “cats with larger-than-life personalities,” “unicorns in uniform” and “alter egos such as Don Dicaprio” and was part-recorded in a haunted house.
