Having distanced themselves from that frequently (over)used and much abused chill-out tag, for which they became so well-known, Messrs Binns and Hardaker return once again for another lesson in perfectly pitched electronic pop. Taking in vocal-led, arpeggiated synth house, pitched down kosmiche and super smooth, late night 4/4 pop, it’s all about that sharp, smooth production style and their meticulous attention to detail.
EL-P and Killer Mike rolling out a 'fucking brutal' preview from their soon-come second installment of RTJ — crucial thing you should know is that this music should be played loud. Hella loud, in order to have its desired effects. And if the DJ won't turn it up, leave. If it's not unhinging your fillings it's not working.
Catchy, mid-tempo, electro disco three-track EP from young London-based producer, Kiwi. Features a remix from label boss, Duke Dumont. One for the Blitz/Nag Nag Nag wouldabeens.
Here we have two of the hypest names in the new wave of breakbeat bass on one release. Denver's Wuki delivers a searing slice of ravey ghetto-edged electro, featuring cool organ-style keys, wicked brass stabs and that repeated vocal refrain: "Don't talk shit 'til you learn to hold a mic right/Fuck what you heard about my life". But it's New Yorker Tony Quattro's killer remix that just shades it for me, sending tribal percussion, whistles, blips and trappy percussion over deep 808 bass for a heavyweight reworking that will have 'em crying into the bassbins.
