In response to the death of Mark Duggan, who was shot and killed by police officers in his north London neighborhood of Tottenham, the people took to the streets and began rioting and looting. This soon spread to other parts of London and continued for several nights.

“At approximately 11:30 pm, August 8th, London rioters looted and burned the Sony DADC distribution warehouse in Enfield, also used by PIAS, Beggars Group, Ninja Tune, Warp, Domino and around 150 other labels. The facility in North London is essentially leveled, with merchandise largely stolen or melted. The following statement was sent to Digital Music News early this morning by the Association of Independent Music (AIM).”

“To all music fans:

You may have heard that the London riots have caused the destruction of a warehouse in North London housing many of the UK’s independent labels and artists. All the stock has been destroyed by fire.

This will lead to much hardship for the artists and labels affected. What music fans can do to show their support for the indie label community, and help them survive this disaster is to buy a digital download of an album from any one of the digital retailers in the UK, as well as going to their local record store while stocks last.

This way, the labels will be able to re-manufacture their CD’s and vinyl more quickly, to resupply the record shops who are also affected by the riots.

Alison Wenham, Chairman and CEO of AIM, the UK’s Trade Association for the Independent Music Industry: “This is a disaster for the music community, but with the fans’ help, labels and artists will survive. Please show your support for the music community by buying a digital album from an independent label today”.”

We can’t help but think of the similarity between the tragic death of Mark Duggan and that of the young Oscar Grant here in the SF Bay Area’s city of Oakland a few years back.

Our thoughts are with Mark’s family and the people of London.

BASE Volume 3 features Lukeino, owner of Sublife Recordings and the newest member of the infamous Bachelors of Science. Womp TV flew up to San Francisco and visited Sublife Recordings’ headquarters on a gorgeous sunny morning by the waterfront. Lukeino hooked us up with a Dutch breakfast of coffee and herb then sat down with us on camera to talk about his sound and production process.

“I don’t consider myself a DJ” -Lukeino

Womp TV asked Lukeino questions like why he started Sublife Recordings and the process of doing so. The interview rolled into his creative process of his smooth bass roller sound. He has put out over 8 releases in the past two years and 1 vinyl under the Sublife Brand. His track “The Key” has been featured on Crissy Criss’ show on BBC extra. His latest release is Sublife’s first EP “Crackatoa” that he co-produced with dubstep artist Jamal featuring Calculon and Sinistarr. Sit back and enjoy the sounds of the Bay Area’s smoothest sexiest bassline boss, LUKEINO!

“The goal at the end of the day is to make music people enjoy.” – Lukeino

With a release due out on Warm Communications, an upcoming US tour and a stock pile of amazing releases under his belt, Swedish producer Sebastian Ahrenberg, aka Seba, is still considered one of drum & bass’s elite and showing no signs of slowing down in 2010.

With releases on iconic labels such Metalheadz, Good Looking, Hospital and Soul:R, Seba is no stranger to the spotlight. This time around he teams up with Warm Communications to bring us a two track release featuring two very different sounds. This release proving, yet again, that this producer is not held to any sort of boundaries and just wants to make good music and share it with the world.
