Brixton - Breeze - Futureworld

Hardcore legend Breeze puts a new twist on the UK hardcore sound for this release. With a very EDM-inspired progressive melody, this track builds euphoric atmosphere with the breakdown, before peaking to drop to an anti climax when the techy kick pattern returns. The track breaks again, with an even more intense variation on the first break, before snapping back to the cool minimal drop. 

Garvey - REKS feat N.O.R.E & Saigon - Brick Records

Really odd production from Hazardis Soundz, an ear-jarring mix of nu-skool beats, groggily smeared and slowed-down vocal samples all bereft of grit or grain and pushed in full colour to your synapse: beyond that freakishness what really pulls you back again and again to 'Garvey' is the great rhymes from Reks & Nore, but especially the verse from Saigon — massively offensive and paranoiac in all kinds of ways but delivered with such unstoppable compelling power you're twitching for the rewind before he's even done. From the 'Eyes Watching God' set I'm now gonna have to check out. 

Bugz - Low Concept - White Asega

If you introduce a 12” as an ‘exercise in stripping something down’, then, bro, I really don’t want to hear pads. Why? Because they’re airy and they’re there to be layered. Thankfully Low Concept’s baggage-less take on munch techno doesn’t have pads. It has balls. Lots of balls. And it has people saying “ants” over again, which I didn’t know I was really all that into before, but in all reality it turns out I properly am.


Musique/Let the Rain Pour - Purple Disco Machine - OFF Recordings

Seasonal house/disco hybrid that arouses Stardust memories via filtered loops and an impassioned vocal performance from Oli Rose.
