Friendly Fires superb Bugged Out! present Suck My Deck compilation came out on K7 last week and disproves the rule that just because you're in a band, you can't also DJ (as DJMag favourite Matthew Dear is also proving in reverse).
Skillfully weaving together everything from the German breakbeat techno of Redshape to Munk's remix of The Phenomenal Handclap Band, it displays an open-mindedness that many 'professional' DJs would do well to follow.
A huge highlight is 'Stay Here', Friendly Fire's own collaboration with our favourite camp Canadians, Azari and III, which you can download now via their site. We've slept on this long enough so make sure that you don't!
