Following business on the likes of Dirt Crew and Detroit Swindle's fledgling Heist Recordings, Dutchman Nachtbraker clubs this one out of the park for easily Huddersfield's finest house label Hudd Traxx — nearing 50 releases and 10 years in the game. Loose and staggeringly funky, 'Zachtjes' is an incendiary piece of work, with a solid mix from Borrowed Identity. 'Oversteppen', on the flip, slow burns its way to glory, a glorious slab of space house.
If there's any left by the time you read this, snap up this corking little 7" from Brighton (MCs The Remarkable One & Native Son) via Hamburg (producer Merlin), featuring Exile and some tasty cutting from DJs Highfly & Tones. Noisy as fuck, like a good marble-red 7" should be.
Pat B’s style is very reflective of the fact that he resides on the boarder of Belgium and The Netherlands, taking influence from the Belgium Jump sound as well as the Dutch hard beats. 'Dance All Day' is a high-energy track that falls into this all-encompassing ‘freestyle’ tag people are using these days. Bouncy kick-drums and light-hearted melodies are the order of the day. With extra shuffled percussion and catchy vocal hooks, this track is a refreshing style in a seemingly raw-dominated market at the moment.
In something of a curveball, former stadium dubstep superstar Skream hooks up with Damian Lazarus's Crosstown Rebels for this big room houser. Suffice to say it's very large indeed.
