To think of the tribal sound is to think of Dub Phizix. It was only a matter of time before he started his own label. Along with his signature primitive beat, 'Buffalo Charge' is fraught with whizzes and pops, chinks and clinks, and thanks to Strategy a devastatingly catchy hook, meaning days after a rave you’ll hear yourself in your feigned dodgy Manc accent repeatedly whispering ‘Buffalo’. Manchester’s finest do it again.
Clearly, the vocal/lyrical cup runneth over this month. On ‘The Most Important Thing’ though, it’s a dead heat for MVP between Sarah, with her breathily effective song and Ferry & Ludovic, with their exactingly pitched production.
To be honest the drop on ‘Sequential Circles’ comes as a bit of a surprise from Bristolian duo, Outboxx — it’s tougher, leaner and more immediate than a lot of what’s come before from them. ‘Moon Loop’ also corroborates that statement neatly.
Some classic lush, progressive sounds here with this remix from East Cafe that just builds and builds in lush detail and melody, adding texture upon delicate texture until it peaks with a breakdown that pushes it into the realm of deep trance. Gorgeous stuff.
