Dub-style drum-‘n’-bass group Thunderball releases two new 12-inches this month: “This Girl” on ESL and “Selector,” featuring local Jamaican rapper Hutchie. Last week, the group was doing press while labelmate Thievery Corporation was spinning in the U.K. Thievery and DJ Farid spun an ESL night at the Heavenly Jukebox that also featured Fatboy Slim, Portishead, and Richard Fearless from Death in Vegas. Thievery also has a new ESL single, “Lebanese Blonde,” featuring Robbie Myers on sitar, distributed by 4AD in Europe. (John Dugan)
