Do yourself a favour and steer well clear of the vocal cut of Michael Woods’ new single ‘Overflowing’, and head straight for the visceral dancefloor appeal that personifies the instrumental mix. A polished mix of electro and EDM, it’s the brute force of that bassline that cements it as a mainroom banger with enough brute power to wreck the joint. Executed with precision.
Italian dubstep producer, Piezo, drops his debut release on J:Kenzo’s label, with two tracks of mutant dungeon halfstep. It’s all a little bit interstellar on both sides —‘Space Conjectures’ is more overtly glitchy and spacey, with washy synths and RJD2 orgasmic bleeps, whilst ‘Conquer’ brings in an Oriental melody line alongside the Hubble processing noises, all underpinned by a stepping drum pattern. Solid stuff.
Ahead of the EP dropping in September, BA release a pair of limited-edition socks with two killer tracks — ‘Camo’ is a global riddim atop soft footwork vibes, ‘Fever’ is stripped back percussive jingalism.
Mr Scrilla returns to OM Unit’s Cosmic Bridge label for the third time, delivering an EP of variety and deep, textured soul underpinned by his usual beats-orientated style. Don’t be expecting 'Helium' and 'Rigel7' to be busting the speakers in the rave any time soon though, leave that for ‘Jello’ the subaqueous beast full of pressurised bass, tin-pot percussion, and dungeonstep weight. Rounded off by the superb liquid drum funk of 'Free Flight' feat Om Unit.
