Scottish hardcore legend Scott Brown is back with a new release on his Evolution imprint. Scott has always been at the forefront of the bouncy side of hardcore, be it the European flavour, or his native UK style. This release focuses on the current ‘powerstomp’ sound rocking the UK at the moment. No big epic breaks, this is all about 4/4 kicks, bass, blips and bleeps. If there is a better definition of music written for the dancefloor, I want to hear it!
Along with schnitzel and The Sound of Music, Mefjus can be added to the list of great things to hail from Austria. In just a few short years Mefjus has quickly become one of the most respected producers within his area of drum & bass, with each release being highly anticipated. This first track from his ‘Emulation’ album sampler displays all the attributes which have propelled his career; ridiculously tight drums, crisp scuttling shuffles and a twisted techy bassline.
The Finnish duo gives us a sneak peek of their new artist album with this classy slice of electro trance. ‘Let Go’ is a canny vocal record, and while it has a few expected EDM flourishes, it holds back on too much of the excess in exchange for a delicious progressive groove. Super8 & Tab impress with trance that’s melodic, driving and slick, both classy and main stage ready.
Excellent melancholic grime music from Loom on Mr Mitch’s Gobstopper Records. 'Grade' sets the tone: a distorted buzz carries the track throughout whilst the computer game synth melody pogos around the stratosphere with digital abandon. 'Rain Falls Hard Here' is the emo torch song, whilst 'North Star' is a bad but good '90s Manga-movie excursion. Concluding with 'Fukushima', all-in-your-face synth hype.
