Review: Last spotted piddling on the BBC's public decency guidelines, producer, DJ, broadcaster, label owner, two-bit animator and all-round Manchester legend Dub Phizix drops two slices of steppy science out of the blue. Both lean and dubby, "Do One" carries one of those mix-friendly riffs on the intro that tease the cascading molten sounding drums (think "I'm A Creator" for 2016) and fit DRS's lyrics perfectly. All tribal and thumpy, "Doberman" is darker again. Ward 21's demonic mic command ensuring certified nightmare dancehall status. Woof woof.
Review: If you've been within a 50 mile radius of a Dub Phizix set you'll have heard his and Strategy's battle jam "Buffalo Charge" and it's undoubtedly one of the biggest tunes in D&B right now. A slick groove (all steppy and uncompromising in the way only Phizzy knows how), full emphasis is on Strategy's perplexingly rapid lyrics. "Bounce" is a much darker jam where hardcore drums bounce with an almost gabber-like sense of drama. No one is doing it like these guys.... But then you knew that already, right?
