Three tracks of perfectly serviceable booty bass here from Florida's DJ Hero, with the minimal, funky rebel yell of 'Hula Hoop' coming out just ahead of 'Celestial Bodies' chugging breakbeat groove and the chunky drums, pitched-down vocals and brooding low-end of 'Ghetto Stomp'.
Expanding at a roughly exponential release rate over his four-year production lifetime, the timing of John Dopping’s debut ‘Words In Colour’ album is prime. This is the fourth and last sampler from it. ‘Dissociate’ and the title track are both John’s thrill-filled Goa-meets-psy-meets tech-progressive model, endlessly listenable and danceable, while ‘Malady’ is a sumptuously toned and arranged chillout piece. If these appeal, the album is almost certainly for you.
Waxheads listen up — this is a limited-edition vinyl-only release! Calibre takes the wheel on this remix of 'Rotary Motion', and puts his usual deep spin on the matter. Turning the original dancefloor smasher into something more of a roller, after a haunting intro the drop crashes into earshot, before a sea of rolling breaks conjugate for the main body, all the while subtly intwining the spectral melody of the intro.
Some people tell me that “man, I just don’t listen to lyrics” when they listen to music and whilst I appreciate their outlook I can’t abide it. And I’ve gotta be honest and say when you’ve got an emcee of Trim’s calibre riding a beat in his inimitably awkward, slow drawl way, the beat often feels secondary, but Ziro’s taut snare splattered production on ‘Lost’ matches Trim’s half chuckled mutters of “darkside” perfectly. More please.
