BEHIND THE SCENE: SWITCH SOUTHAMPTON

An old theatre turning on Southampton? DJ Mag flicks on the light...
Torpedo EP - Doctor Jeep & Tony Quattro - Trouble & Bass Recordings

Two of New York's finest bass producers come correct with a collaborative EP full of rowdy firepower on the always excellent Trouble & Bass. Tony Quattro drops ghetto vocals, fierce fx and relentless 808 bass on 'Penthouse Suite', then teams up with Jeep for the bruising barrage of whoops, blips, clicks, off-kilter beats and nonchalant low-end that is 'Torpedo'. Finally Jeep goes solo with 'Creator', a percussion-led, ghetto-edged UK funky style riddim to get them moving from the front to the back. A top class selection of seriously booming grooves.

Anchors (remixes) - Tritonal - Enhanced Recordings

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.

Gunpowder Plot/Hold Out - RadioKillaZ - RadioKillaz Recordings

Annie Nightingale favourites and all-round badboys RadioKillaZ drop yet another dose of junglistic 140bpm breakbeat, 'Gunpowder Plot' smashing through with darkcore Amens, paranoiac bass and a sample about government tyranny, while 'Never Go Back' plumps for sirens, fierce drum work and ravey keys, plus an amusing public safety announcement sample. Quality guaranteed as ever. 

Joe’s Bakery Presents: Moton - Moton - Joe’s Bakery

Two standout figureheads, in the genre of the disco-edit, collude and show us exactly how it’s done. Yorkshire crate-digging crew, Joe’s Bakery invite Moton’s Diesel and Dave Jarvis to their label for an EP of edits that finds ground between club play and hi-fi spin; chopping up '80s synth jams, sparkling disco oddities and heady, Balearic tones. If you’re a little confused as to where to head next in this often over-subscribed field, then I suggest towards this exemplary release.
