DUBBED OUT PRESENTS - HATCHA & FRIENDS 23/08/14

We review Dubbed Out's 5th birthday party!
Knowing We'll Be Here (KiNK Remix) - Daniel Avery - Phantasy Sound

Another wildcard entry, KiNK shows again how adept he is in balancing blissful warmth with the rougher techno edges. The former wins out here though, possibly more than anything heard before from the Bulgarian maestro. Rhythmically it doesn’t differ a whole lot from Avery’s original, though what it does add is that divine synth whistle, appearing out of nowhere to welcome the swell of a near trance symphony in the second half. Something like majestic. 

October - Airhead - Hemlock

After releases on Brainmath, R&S and 1-800 Dinosaur over the past four years, all with a certain bent towards the wonky, off-kilter and certainly more horizontal persuasion, it’s good to hear Rob McAndrews drop something a bit more caustic. 'October' certainly has more attitude in both drums and energy, but it’s the understated rave gravity of 'Macondo' that captures the imagination.

Brixton - Breeze - Futureworld

Hardcore legend Breeze puts a new twist on the UK hardcore sound for this release. With a very EDM-inspired progressive melody, this track builds euphoric atmosphere with the breakdown, before peaking to drop to an anti climax when the techy kick pattern returns. The track breaks again, with an even more intense variation on the first break, before snapping back to the cool minimal drop. 

Back to the Roots Part 2 - 2Vilas & Manu Gonzalez - Isgud Records

Tato & Tania Vulcano's Isgud produces two raw housers here, 'Just Talk' winning out, with its rattling tambourines and an old school loop shaking out a devastating groove.
