Well it's certainly been an eventful past week or so here at B365 with all manner of name changes and re-designs to keep us busy. Thanks for bearing with us, as there's loads of great new content coming in the next few weeks to keep you entertained. We're only going to keep getting better!

Hip Hop juggernaut Sober & Dribbla have been hard at work bubbling up beats and bars in their lab to follow up last year's Freaks Speak Dark. The result is The Butchers Ball and it is a master class in pure concentrated banger technology - proving these boys mean business in a big, big way. We'll be bringing you a full interview with the lads very soon, as well as a full review of the new album. Hold tight!

Another week, another quality interview courtesy of
Chris Highrise. This time its the turn of up and coming genius producer Guido ahead of his debut release on Punch Drunk. Know one thing - Guido is without doubt the future of Bristol's underground music scene and is at the forefront of the new, mutated sound that Bristol is twisting out of dubstep, grime and 8-bit. Get to know or sleep on him at your peril!

This coming weekend is traditionally a very busy one in clubland, and 2009 is looking to be very much the same, regardless of any recession. First up D&B crew Torque celebrate their first birthday on Friday, with Klute and Spectrasoul amongst the DJs hitting the Tube.

On Saturday, Chesters pays host to Road To Zion 2, with the mouth-watering prospect of local MC trailblazer Buggsy sharing set with Jammer. There's a lot of big local talent in support too so this is definitely 100% B365 approved.

One of the best nights in Bristol hits Take5 again for another sweatbox session of futureproof beats. Bruk is formulating a fearsome reputation as the party to attend, so if you're looking for an intimate and forward-thinking event this weekend, this is the one.

Big knees-up of the week goes to the JUMP UP BRISTOL event at Motion though, with a cross-section of the cream of Bristol's club promoters coming together to raise money for the TEMWA association. Big line up that is sure to do the business and all for a good cause too.
