Welcome back to another round-up of the best new music released this week, from both Leeds and beyond.
Alt.Aire & Metropolitan Soul Museum - A Family Affair EP [Yellow Island Records]
Following their smashing BabyStep Cabin Fever episode, the London brothers are back for their debut EP A Family Affair. The tracks explore how music is passed down through generations and genres, all composed through live looping improvisation.
Check it out on Spotify below.
Darius the Barbarian & Cherriep - On Screen EP [Posse Up!]
Darius the Barbarian and Cherriep join forces for their new electro-meets-rap EP. It's a one of a kind sound, packed full of gritty beats and high energy.
You can preview the tracks via Posse Up! on SoundCloud now.
Dub Beans - Never EP
Dub Beans has treated us to 4-track EP Never, venturing through the darker, half-time sounds of jungle, footwork and DnB. "Expect a lot of crazy drum patterns and breaks, heavy distortions, acid sounds, hypnotising vocal chops and fast paced rhythms."
Never is out now on SoundCloud.
Roy Roy - Vagrant
Earlier this week we got the chance to speak to Roy Roy, a Leeds-based duo who released their debut single Vagrant yesterday. It's a hazy, Sunday-morning number, sonically resemblant of early days King Krule, embellished with fuzzy guitars and gritty vocals. Check it out below.
Celestial Being - Natural Progress [ME1 Records]
Kicking off ME1 Records' free download series is Celestial Being, a producer that's been hot on the releases the past year. Natural Progress ventures through the sounds of the 90s, delivering the hottest breaks to transport you to the dance-floor.
You can listen to Natural Progress on Soundcloud now.

Comprising of 44 huge tracks across ghetto, house and tech, Garneau released his tribute to Dance Mania this week. Catch the hour-long mix down below on SoundCloud, featuring some of his favourite tracks from Deeon, Slugo, Parris Mitchel and DJ Milton.
