Review: One of drum & bass's most in demand and distinctive singers Collette Warren gets her first artist EP on Marky's Innerground and she's rolling deep. Marky provides an Intalex style hurricane for Warren and current golden soul man Tyler Daley to duet on, while Random Movement gets his little jittery clipped funk flare on that complements Warren's jazzy signature perfectly. Halfway in, Calibre turbo charges up the amen and organ machine for one of the strongest cuts of the set before Seattle's Quadrant & Iris cook up a rolling pacer for the most energetic, insistent cut on the 12". Four unique designs, one singular voice. We hope an album drops in the future.
Review: The God of Discogs returns to Vivid... And this time it's soggy. As always with the Wetster, there's a handsome collection of sounds across the 12" as we run through some of jungle's finest ingredients. Highlights include the immense breakcraft and dubby washes of "Ride Snoop", the Detroit influences and shimmering depths of "Focus Is" and the immense space and delicious weirdness of "Lagoon Dub". All proceeds go to NAACP Legal Defense Fund.
