With all this new stuff for 2008 we think its appropriate to shed some light on some new labels you will encounter this year.

Kicking this one off is a spotlight on the Florida based imprint Prestige Music. Releasing their first tracks in mid 2007, Prestige started off with the bar set high. 001 brought a triple threat collaboration between Alix Perez & Redeyes and Redeyes & Mutt. "Watching You" & "Virtue" were very well received and Syncopix followed suit on 002 with "On Volt" & "Starlight". With Another well received 12", Prestige were beginning to make an impact in the scene. In late 2007 Prestige signed an exclusively produced 12" from LA's Atlantic Connection. "True Love / Smokey Blue" made heavy rounds being featured regularly on Fabio's Radio One show on the BBC. With an early 2008 release on that, Prestige have recently signed a 12" from Irelands Beta 2 of Metalheadz & Bassbin fame and are in the processes' of compiling an EP which according to their myspace, will feature cuts from the Insiders, Lynx & Henree & Amaning. Continuously uping the anti, Prestige are quickly growing into a well respected stateside imprint. We salute you Prestige!

That guy Mutt! Yeh he's some hot shit, you may know his releases on Renegade, or Creative Source, or Crisis or Nu Directions.. Fact is, Mutt is by far one of the most under-rated drum and bass artists around. His signature soul sound is untouchable and he's also just a really nice guy. We caught up with Canada's soul master to see whats really hood for 2008?

WB: So whats poppin playa? Whats up next on the platter?

MUTT: My next three releases will be 'Open Wide' on Horizons Music, 'GED (Halftime)' on Gremlinz new label Audio Decay, and 'The Cold Ones' for Loxy's imprint X-Tinction Agenda. Also an album is in the works for 2009 on Horizons Music. I also plan on doing a tour in europe in April, so it's going to be a busy year!

WB: Sweet, random, but tell us somthing you love about this music?

MUTT: I love the fact that its always changing and is constantly evolving and self referencing at the same time. I also like that there is so many flavours of it nowadays. Plus I love making it. Even if I had never gotten signed or anything I would still be cutting up breaks and samples in my little studio.
