After a big couple of years for Craig McNamara since his Last Magpie moniker pricked up ears with ‘Who Knows Where the Love Goes’ on Hypercolour, he digs back into his influences to produce a couple of nostalgic numbers full of jungle breaks, R&B vocals and garage swagger. But the highlight is 'Chicken Shop' with its throbbing bassline and sick 2nd drop. Tight release.
Mad Mats and Tooli present Andreas Saag's third release on their Local Talk imprint. It's great, as per, the skippy, garage anthem 'Suddenly I Woke Up' just edging it.
Disco gets its revenge with a reissue of The Mobley Gang’s super-rare, electro disco moment from 1983, ‘Groove For You’.
A solid fistful of wobbly, throbbing rollers from this Copenhagen vs. London collabo between RDG & Hitman, that all feels very 2007 in its vibe and approach. Whilst Tempa’s AxH has a pop at remixing the title track, the standout cut is RDG’s 'Space Age', which combines syncopated drums, a pulsing bassline and weird electrical feedback effects to create a space-time continuum of bassweight funk.
