The Nextmen are back once again for the latest instalment of their residency at On The Real. With 4 hours and 4 decks to wow the crowd they are sure to be setting the dance-floor alight once again. For a little flavour of what to expect check out this video they recorded for Serato - .

If you have not heard one of The Nextmen's legendary sets in a club, at a festival or on a mixtape at some point during their 10+ years then chances are you're either certified deaf or crazy. As fun packed as they are eclectic this duo, who first made a name for themselves producing for the likes of London Posse and Blackalicious, know better than many how to blend all styles of music into a cohesive dance-floor friendly blend that leaves you with no option but to shake ya batty!

With 4 hours and four decks to work with you can expect a soul tinged mix of anything from Reggae & House to Hip-Hop & Dubstep that reflects not only their tastes but also their ever evolving production style that has been refined across 4 full length albums to date.

While The Nextmen take over the main room our incredible line up of residents are taking over on the ground floor as Spin Doctor, Mr Thing, Chris P Cuts and the host with the most MC Prankster keep things straight Hip-Hop as they treat you to bangers new and old all night!

From Obese Records:

MP3: ILLY f/ PEZ - "Where Ya Been"

"'Where Ya Been' is a bit of fun at the expense of the people who are constantly asking about what's going on.

I thought the old school sound of this song fit perfectly with the type of song I wanted to write- a song reminiscing on past "emotional affairs."

Here is the link to my song: .
And, here's the link to the original song I sampled: .
