The man behind some of the best unofficial 4x4 UKG versions Skepta and JME have enjoyed, Skue-K continues his confident rise in the bass realm on Low Pitched. "In The Rave" takes a deeper, jacking twist from his more forthright damage with a well-placed vocal and rumbling house-style bass hook. "Inside" takes a turn for the gnarlier with a grittier bass approach but still a clear house edge to the drums. Stately, unhurried but 100% gully; these cuts are built to last.
From Four40 to Project Allout, UK bass scientist Tuff Culture has shown us many sides of his artistic persona. If we want to keep things topline, this guy can make just about any form of UK dance music; he's given us dubstep, a little trap, some house, and now two new garage-leaning joints. "Take Me" is deep and pensive, but once the main hook drops it's an infectious drum affair with a growling, penetrative bassline. "I Don't Care" is a more typical garage tune because of its twisted, dusty drum pattern, but the sounds within are anything but what you'd normally expect from a 90's garage track. Wait for that switch, too.
