Broken beats that don't suck? Must be from 2004! In this case it's true, as Mark de Clive-Lowe has uploaded some old demos recorded with Mark Force of Bugz in the Attic. This track has Bembe Segue on vocals, beats from G-Force and Mashi playing the keys.

JB Rose – It's Time

Seems like 2004's Bitasweet release of the JB Rose track It's Time was reissued recently. For a moment it looked like the first release on the Bugz in the Attic label in a long time. But no - nothing new here, but a good chance to get it if you missed it before.
