E'ryone's handing out Maaaaad EPs and mixtapes today son! Mad Decent are handing out the 2nd Gucci remixed mixtape and it's the burrrrtish edition. Blunted Robots, meanwhile, are celebrating their new website by handing out the Mickey Carboot EP packed with Mickey Pearce, Shortstuff's alter ego,  bootlegs that received a rinsin last year. Apparently Mickey's been on the rob, abusing the work of people more fortunate than himself and passing it off as his own. Tracks like What's Mickey talking about, a bootleg of Redlight and Ms Dynamite's what you talking about and Mickey is dead; the bootleg of Tempz and Jme's CD is dead, are on the release. As a bonus there's the Shower Mickey track, a grimey bashy take on the showa eski riddim by Wiley, which doesn't seem to be on the free download (wahhh) Head on over the the Blunted Robots website and sign up to their mailing list to unlock the free shit.

As for the 2nd Gucci mixtape, this time around Sinden is trying to keep the Queen happy by putting all the remix work to his British homies. There are strong remix performances from Sinden, Scratcha DVA,  Swerve, Toddla T, Terror Danjah, Mista Men and Mosca. It's nice to see that UK Vocalists have also been included with excellent vocal work out from Estelle, Wiley, Trigga Nom, Slick Don, Tinchy Stryder (I know right?) and Dream Mclean. In terms of all round sound Terror Danjah and Mista Men's refixes stand out, with the big bars sprayed over the big bass bumps from Wiley and Dream McLean sounding really fresh on Terror Danjah's mix. While Mista Men's version of Haterade brings in the original vocals, letting them ride along with the crushing bass. 100% summer anthem. Download my faves below or head on over to the Mad Decent website and sign up to their mailing list to git all them tracks! According to my blogger account I'm not allowed to post the mista men rerub, even though it is completely legal to - the remixes were all commissioned with official stems handed out. Instead you can go here and download it
