If there ever was a release you had to force yourself to listen to through sheer professional stubbornness, this has to be up there. The superbly named Noisestorm flobs out a pop and bass remix which sounds like a fairy with severe food poisoning letting out a fart. Making matters worse, the Unlike Pluto remix is insipid, floppy and dull.
Proper vibes on this carnival-style groove from the youthful London producer on Buraka Som Sistema's Enchufada. 'Voyeur' throws down tribal percussion, chopped out snatches of vocal and throbbing sub, with the beats flipping between 4/4 and broken beat rhythms. Another hugely promising jam from an artist who's been catching the ear of Mistajam and Toddla T in recent months.
The second EP from this producer on Fine Grains, the first inspired by Slavic nightmares, whereas this one transports itself in the opposite direction to the southern Asiatic lands of India. And boy, do you know it. The six tracks are a superb cacophony of exotic riddims spiced with expert bass manoeuvres, with a respectful reference to Indian culture and ambience. Slackk and Morgan Zarate chip in decent remixes to boot.
Dons of all things rave-edged and breakbeat-fuelled at faster tempos, Top Drawer Digital, bring us a typically boisterous 145bpm killa featuring jackhammer bass, sirens and Prodigy-esque keys, plus a stirring "big shout to all the massive" vocal.
