We're kicking off 2011 with some of the hottest tipped acts of the year. Electronic drawl-king Ghostpoet's spooky beats tustle with Patten's washes of Orb-esque synth madness, with Lapalux's hazy half-step and Klaus's minimal bass aesthetic providing exceptional support. Then we'll tie our best records hard to the decks from Samiyam to James Blake to Star Slinger to FlyLo, Young Montana, J Dilla, Pariah, Sumsun, Take, Knxwledge, Machinedrum, Devonwho, mndsgn, Jai Paul, Museum of Belles Artes, Onra, Dunian, Mount Kimbie, Letherette, Fantastic Mr Fox, matthewdavid, Shlohmo, Martin Kemp, Kavsrave, Addison Groove, Run DMT, Doom and Walter Gibbons...

GHOST POET (Brownswood Recordings) - http://mysp.ac/ghostp
A hotly tipped MC/producer for 2011 who is a close compadre of Micachu and Kwes, Ghost Poet's drone-heavy soundtracks follow a desolate off-the-tongue life of labour. Nothing spat from this guys mouth is substandard, these are the tales of daily dreary and ones where every word opens up a new dialogue, with tranquil sub-heavy programming to boot.
PATTEN - http://mysp.ac/pattenmys
With sound design so organic it made one of our residents cry upon first listen, Patten is carving a path for himself not-too-disimilar to that of the Border Community artists he fits in with. Having turned out a mind-blowing remix for Caribou's 'Swim Remixes' LP and contributed to No Pain In Pop's mini-comp release, this is the true bar of inventiveness set for the year to come.
LAPALUX - http://bit.ly/f01FpV
One of the fastest rising artists in London's bass secene, and a soon to be breakout success of the year, Lapalux is a Beige-staple with the catalogue to boot. Climbing vine-coated trees only to drench the listener in blankets of crackling, disturbed roboticism, his material is another world from the US hip-hop and indie scenes from which he draws his inspiration.
KLAUS - http://mysp.ac/klausuk
Alongside Airhead, James Blake and Mount Kimbie I can easily catalogue Klaus. A UK bass upstart with tons of potential, yet strangely unsigned, this will be a chance for the man to flush his influences off the wrist whilst DJing alongside our residents.
