The earthshaking grandeur of Guy J’s ‘Candyland’ emanated an appeal that had little to do with conventional dancefloor fodder, though King Unique settles for something a little more straightforward with his rework. Please note though, that it’s equally likely to shake you to your very core with its peaktime swathe of power progressive thrills. Something like ‘BOOM’.
It feels like an age since this French bass botherer last committed anything to record. Needless to say, whatever he does conjure up is always going to reside towards the odder end of the spectrum. Enter the wigged-out, stuttering, dislocated craziness of ‘Bear Biscuit’! The illectro of ‘Machyne’ is no less intense, but follows a more standardised template if that’s your thing. Expect plays from the usual bearded Low End Theory types!
It's been over three years since Maya Jane Cole's last outing on Anja Schneider & Ralf Kollmann's venerable Mobilee. Since then, it's fair to say things have "gone totally mental" for the producer. But now the dust has settled on her debut set for I/AM/ME, it would appear she's back in the game for producing sturdy, heads-down club music. 'From the Dark' bristles and shuffles skilfully, but it's 'I Would Fly' which wins out here, a frisky, hypnotic loop which burrows itself into the mind.
Produced this one together with my UK homies and with great result.
