If, like me, you are a dub fanatic, then this will have you foaming. Those who know Paul St Hilaire aka Tikiman from the legendary Rhythm & Sound recordings will know he’s one of the best, most rootical of vocalists in the world today, and over eight superb tracks of Deadbeat’s throbbing dub creations waxes lyrical in fine style. Outer-national sounds at their best.
What a 12 months Ram have had. Another year passes, packed full of successes, and to celebrate this they have released their 2013 annual, which of course includes everyone's favourite colourful character Frankee and the exclusive VIP of his track 'Harlequin'. As we've come to expect from the boy wonder, we have a mix of infectiously catchy drum patterns and a dark pounding bassline, with seemingly effortless excellence.
Cheeky UK hardcore cover of this Prodigy classic, keeping things very much in line with the powerstomp sound sweeping the UK hardcore scene this year. Doesn't give you any time to catch your breath and goes in hard from the start.
Known for his vocal hardstyle anthems, The Pitcher is back on Fusion delivering another big hitter for the winter months, with an infectious pitched-up vocal and catchy melody in the main break and drop. Adding some euphoric sounds on this very dark raw label but steering clear of being too obvious in the intro and outro sections compliments the breakdown well.
