The Trip EP - Dan Beaumont - Classic

No one can touch Classic when it’s on form, and with this EP from Dalston Superstore and Dance Tunnel man Dan Beaumont, all concerned are indeed entirely untouchable. ‘Trippy Pumper’ is pulsating, party madness. Any dancefloor that it cannot reduce to vibrating lunacy is worthy of neither your time or effort. ‘Dan’s Jam’ is brooding, tracky disco, eight minutes of sparse, heads-down mania that succeeds despite having no discernible bassline. ‘This Feeling’ drops a little acid into proceedings. Most welcome it is too, as is Justin Robertson’s Deadstock 33s mix.

So It Goes feat Bukue One & Agne Motie - Rebel Sketchy - Ground Level

Rebel Sketchy has been feeding breakbeat tracks into the scene for a good few years now, yet with his ‘Goodbye Gravity’ album he’s cast his net a bit wider. ‘So It Goes’ calls on Californian rapper Bukue One to rhyme over a bass music bed, with vocalist Agne Motie purring sweet sonnets in-between. It’s quite commercial, radio-friendly and poppy, yet will still pick up early doors club play. The Bert On Beats remix tickles with a tropical underbelly, while Kwerk turns it into more of a straight-up electroid breakbeat banger. 

Roar/Mr Oscar - NAPT & Roska - Fool’s Gold

So this is what Roska has been up to, collabing with the NAPT boys Tomek and Ash - with pretty wicked results, too. ‘Roar’ intros with a pretty neat build-up, pivoted around sparse rolling beats and a pressure-cooker siren wail. After the first drop, the hype bashy beats and “Hup” yelps are joined by cowbell — gotta have more cowbell! — and then clanging old hardcore keys. Impossible to genre categorise, ‘Roar’ would make Katy Perry shrivel up behind a bush. ‘Mr Oscar’ is a pared-down percussive feast, part-funky bashy bass and part-clanging deep tech-house. Love ‘em both.
