207 – Koto EP
Rustling chimes and twisted vocal/horn interplay become a sticking point throughout, alongside the tried-and-true combination of a busy rhythm section anchored by a monolithic bass.
DJ Q & Todd Edwards – Sweet Day
Overall the composition feels like the two have managed to mediate a tight partnership… an authentic love letter to garage.
Mask – Gangster
A track that neatly represented much of the music I would overhear growing up—it was written by experienced artists who wrote across the bass music spectrum.
Snowy – Lovey Dovey
I would hope that, above all else, this brings more eyes and ears to the East Midlands and the exceptionally talented artists that call it home.
Tammo Hesselink – Mantis 07
Contrasting surgically precise percussion with emotive pads, this quadruple bill of thoughtfully programmed leftfield techno and bass tracks is not to be missed.
Awo Ojiji – Mantecatura EP
Counterposing mammoth basslines against frantic percussion, the Austrian’s first full-length contribution to “Scuffed Recordings” sees him revisit some of the stylistic influences that informed his previous releases and solidify his signature sound.
Gag Reflex – Sisphyean Rhythms EP
Starting an EP with a 50-second scream is a bold move!
Militant Music – Renegade Ravers EP
The b-line on this bad boy is more on the midrange side of things and is sure to be getting any crowd skanking up and down the country.
Cheetah – Summer Dubs
An onslaught of soundclash vocals and big sub-bass with the cleverly subtle insertions of uplifting soul samples, just like the doctor prescribed.
