Here we have two of the hypest names in the new wave of breakbeat bass on one release. Denver's Wuki delivers a searing slice of ravey ghetto-edged electro, featuring cool organ-style keys, wicked brass stabs and that repeated vocal refrain: "Don't talk shit 'til you learn to hold a mic right/Fuck what you heard about my life". But it's New Yorker Tony Quattro's killer remix that just shades it for me, sending tribal percussion, whistles, blips and trappy percussion over deep 808 bass for a heavyweight reworking that will have 'em crying into the bassbins.
Marcel Caron provides the latest release on down-tempo techno label Transcendent. ‘Science’ features eerie soundscapes that veer into bleepy abstractions, while 'Dark Spectrum' is built on layer upon layer of atmospheric synths. Hexagon delivers two metallic, clanging versions of 'Space'.
Having distanced themselves from that frequently (over)used and much abused chill-out tag, for which they became so well-known, Messrs Binns and Hardaker return once again for another lesson in perfectly pitched electronic pop. Taking in vocal-led, arpeggiated synth house, pitched down kosmiche and super smooth, late night 4/4 pop, it’s all about that sharp, smooth production style and their meticulous attention to detail.
"Re-edit of one of my all-time favourites."
