Review: Constant Sound sublabel Instinct comes correct with some ruff n' tuff steppers from 0113, a shadowy alias that channels pure speed garage energy into a record of pure firepower. There's no messing with lead track "Inside", all nasty bass and frantic swing with more rudeboy swagger than a souped up Vauxhall Nova. "Steppa" darts around a crooked 2-step flex to die for, embellished with eerie atmospherics to darken up the dance. "Rouge Fader" brings some heavyweight 4x4 bump n' flex, and "Break" keeps the pressure up to make this a four-deep dancehall wrecker of the highest caliber.
Review: BEEYOU Records are back with 4 outrageously groovy tracks perfect for all your dance floor needs. First up on the A1 is Julian Anthony with a 90s Tech House inspired banger. Rossi. has full control of the A2 with his signature groovy basslines that keep you dancing all night. Azire who is one half of Xhz shows us what's real with a hypnotic roller, and Xhz are back with another beautiful track full of sexy french vocals and dreamy pads.
Review: DUNGEON MEAT are back with the 2nd instalment of their Weapons Of Ass Destruction series featuring another 3 killer club cuts ready to detonate any dance floor . Featuring Honey Dijon's sleazy house jam sounding like the love child of Terry Francis and Derrick Carter while Desert Sound Colony comes in hard with a futuristic speaker freaker that will heavily wobble the bassbins and people's chins with it's killer bass line .... Then to round off the EP we have Slapfunk's Danielle Temperilli dropping a sleazy UK Garage stepper that pushes the sound further into the future and is sure to get those gun fingers firing all over the dance floor and a few rewinds here and there . Once again Dungeon Meat give the DJ's plenty of beef for their bag and deliver another chunky selection that will surely do the damage .
Review: After 7 club-orientated releases that have found their way into a wide variation of record bags from Midland, Raresh, Ricardo Villalobos, Ryan Elliot, Craig Richards, to Patrick Topping, INSTINCT goes further into his sound over 10 tracks for the LP. Not to be missed.
Review: More from the shadowy Phone Traxxx series, whose previous releases have been packed to the rafters with slamming club cuts inspired by the late '90s/early 2000s glory days of UK garage. The mysterious crew kicks things off via the brilliantly madcap weighty two-step/8-bit/brain-dance fusion of "No More Mr Nice Guy", before reaching for the sparkly organ riffs, chunky sub-bass and swinging drums of "Ptree". Over on side B you'll find more computer game style bleeps, starry chords and bowel-bothering bass (two-step workout "Chi Quay"), as well as a suitably smooth, warm and melodic 4/4 garage roller ("Shooter McGavin").
