BEHIND THE SCENE: SWITCH SOUTHAMPTON

An old theatre turning on Southampton? DJ Mag flicks on the light...
All the Massive - Kambelt - Top Drawer Digital

Dons of all things rave-edged and breakbeat-fuelled at faster tempos, Top Drawer Digital, bring us a typically boisterous 145bpm killa featuring jackhammer bass, sirens and Prodigy-esque keys, plus a stirring "big shout to all the massive" vocal. 

Inbetween EP - Get A Room! - Partyfine

Well-dressed Parisian duo Get A Room! surface again on Yuksek’s Partyfine label with this EP of pop, electro and disco tracks. The music is catchy and has a cool ‘Italians Do It Better’ feel to it, especially in moments like ‘Leave This Town’ and its dub version, but head for a bonkers reworking from the prolific The Emperor Machine and a sleazy new-wave fix from the brilliant Remain.

Relapse EP - Monoblok&PSLKTR - Meant Records

French duo Monoblok&PSLKTR are back on Meant with an EP of darkwave/goth dance tracks accompanied by a bunch of mixes from the likes of Arnaud Rebotini, My Favorite Robot and Rework. Highlights come from Blackstrobe’s Arnaud Rebotini, who works a cool, noir-ish touch into ’Walking Disaster’ and a tense disco-dub from Canadian trio, My Favorite Robot. All round good effort with strong supporting remixes and solid original productions too.

Tension - Pyramid vs Colombo - Ruff N Fresh

Props here for pushing the breakbeat envelope, even if the results seem pretty far-out. Pyramid and Colombo give us an avant-garde blend of lilting grunge guitar and epic female vocals, as well as a superpowered piano and string-fuelled breakdown. The first drop plumps for a noisy barrage of bass over simple drum work, but the second suddenly pulls on its funky boots and starts dancing on the ceiling. Did the production duo — one from Spain, the other from London — take one half of the tune each?
