The Harleighblu roadshow rolls on in style with the third single to be lifted from her great debut on Tru Thoughts. All of the comparisons have already been made to the likes of Jill Scott, Badu, Hill and Winehouse. However for the uninitiated, that's the role (model) call. A plethora of remixes come attached to the original too — all good gear, just take your pick from this star in ascendance.
With hardstyle getting increasingly raw every month, it's great to have an act doing the exact opposite. These guys keep delivering party vocal hardstyle anthems as part of their #Tweekay14 series and I absolutely love it! This new release features a catchy male vocal by Popr3b3l, soaring hard trance melodies and bags of fun for dancefloors and summer festivals.
Ossie steps up and smashes this one out of the stadium. Great use of the vocal, utilising the chorus nicely to build the tension, setting the drop up for maximum impact.
As far as I’m concerned the attention shy Maghreban is three for three. He’s put out three records on Zoot and each one’s done something for me. This third one’s devoted to Star Trek and the Vulcan mating ritual, which he describes as "often brutal" — a phrase that is probably the optimum tag line for the A-side, ‘Amok Time', which totes the kind of churning low-end that would’ve sweetened up Plastic’s 2009-era soundsystem just perfect.
