Long Time/Special Forces - DJ Quest - Cyberfunk

London producer DJ Quest was one of the main players on the 'tear-out breaks' scene a few years back, but the first track on his new EP unfortunately serves to indicate how much dance music has moved on in the six years since he last put out a record. 'Long Time' is a listless, noisenik slice of darkcore breakbeat with a descending bassline, the odd fleck of acid and distorted vocal samples. Plainly put, it's not up to much. On the flip, 'Special Forces' is a lot more interesting, throwing down a pleasantly weird synth-funk b-line, atmospheric effects and a cool "We move like Special Forces" sample. It's the kind of gnarly, offbeat tune you can just about imagine making an impact on the resurgent grime scene.

'Bald Eagle Swimming' - SHARP VEINS - Unreleased

"Hard-hitting and distinctly odd. Delivers the perfect amount of confusion."

Sasquatch Feet - Grand Daddy I.U. - Steady Flow Enterprises

Love the backing cooked up by Gwop Sullivan here — murky but crisp, rippling with congos that sound good enough to be touched by the hand of Master Henry Gibson. Tight and fat beat, two-note bassline, tons of space, tons of percussion — grand to hear Grand Daddy I.U back (anyone remember 'Smooth Assassin' from 1990? You should) and spitting with the nonchalant grace and stealth of a true legend. 'P.I.M.P: Paper Is My Priority' is the album that drops soon and if 'Sasquatch Feet' is anything to go by it should be worth checking out.

'Pulse Wedding' - GUNDAM - Unreleased

"Guaranteed reload every time. Quel banger."
