If there ever was a release you had to force yourself to listen to through sheer professional stubbornness, this has to be up there. The superbly named Noisestorm flobs out a pop and bass remix which sounds like a fairy with severe food poisoning letting out a fart. Making matters worse, the Unlike Pluto remix is insipid, floppy and dull.
After testing the waters on sister label Modulations earlier in 2014, Bristol boy Sam Binga once again requests the pleasure of the talented Redders for your musical enjoyment. A solid release from camp Kasra: dark, industrial and with a slow-moving, pounding bassline, paired with its ragga vocal from Redders ‘Tek Nuh Chat’ comprises of all the elements required to make this a dancefloor smasher. Fans of the old school should also check out ‘Chasin’' from the same EP, that bass!
Proper vibes on this carnival-style groove from the youthful London producer on Buraka Som Sistema's Enchufada. 'Voyeur' throws down tribal percussion, chopped out snatches of vocal and throbbing sub, with the beats flipping between 4/4 and broken beat rhythms. Another hugely promising jam from an artist who's been catching the ear of Mistajam and Toddla T in recent months.
You can precisely hear his old school influences pouring out into this EP, this is jungle with a real classy vibe. The bass is slow, intensely deep and beautifully mellowing, while the drums are crisp and stunningly vibrant against the rest of the track. Understated layers of echoing percussion and floating chords give this track an ethereal elegance which balances out a piece which would otherwise be on the heavy and dark side.
